Please, could you match that interface message to the ones on Commons? -- 11:22, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Will let others decide wether to implement this or not but I've reset the message to default in the meanwhile so we can use an updated message. —Marco Aurelio (Nihil Prius Fide) 12:50, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
As far as I understand, one if the major differences between ours and Commons is an explicit mention to Special:EmailUser and I'm not sure if we want to. Most of blocks we place is for blatant vandalism whose Email sending function is often disabled. I'm not convinced we're about to change the text as requested. --Aphaia (talk) 20:07, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

There is currently no consensus about implementing this proposal. I'd advise to discuss and/or mention it at Meta:Babel first. Mathonius (talk) 08:04, 6 May 2012 (UTC)

Update requestEdit

This system message needs a bit of a more complex design. This update will help readers understand what it means and how to bypass it, in case they did nothing wrong. The code needed for this design is as follows.

|2=This IP address has been [[mw:Autoblock|automatically blocked]] from editing. (Autoblock #$5)
|3=You have not been blocked directly. Someone else on this network was blocked from editing by [[User:$1|$1]]; therefore an autoblock has been applied to this IP address ($3) to prevent the blocked user from continuing to edit disruptively while logged out. This autoblock will remain until $6; a complete description of the autoblock is: ''$2''.
|2=If you have been autoblocked, please read the following information.
|3=An autoblock is the automatic block of an IP address, done by the [[MediaWiki]] software. Autoblocks are the result of an attempt to edit Meta-Wiki (or its sister projects) from an IP address recently used by a blocked user.

These blocks can affect other editors who have done nothing wrong. To bypass this autoblock, please consider doing one of the following:

* '''If you are a legitimate user, or have an account''': Please [[Special:UserLogin|log in]] to continue editing. If you still cannot edit pages even when logged in, then this is likely the result of a "hard" IP range block. If you encounter this message when trying to edit a page, [[Meta:IP block exemption#Requesting and granting exemption|follow these instructions to request an IP block exemption]].

* '''If you do ''not'' yet have an account''': Please fill out <span class="plainlinks">[// this form]</span> to request a username. An email address must be provided to receive a temporary password, which should be used to create a new password. Once you have received the temporary password, go to the [[w:Special:PasswordReset|password reset page on Wikipedia]] (or another project) and enter the temporary password in the blank password field. You will then be asked to provide a new password for the account you requested.

If the autoblock seems unrelated to you, you may appeal by adding the following to your [[Special:MyTalk|talk page]]: <code>{{unblock|Caught in an autoblock but it doesn't relate to any of my actions. My IP address is $3. Block message: $2. (Autoblock #$5)}}</code>.
* If the request is '''accepted''', you should continue to edit normally. However, we recommend that you log in to avoid further problems.
* If the request is '''declined''', a reason for declining will appear on the <code>{{unblock}}</code> template.

For more information on autoblocks, refer to [[mw:Autoblock|this article on the MediaWiki website]].

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have happened.

The result:

  Not done This has not been identified as being a requirement by the community. If you think that the message is too simple, then please raise that at Meta:Babel so that a community consensus for the change can be obtained.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:24, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
