This page hosts requests for global (un)blocks, (un)locks and hidings.

If you are here because you have been blocked by a global block, please see Global blocks/FAQ for more information about global block and routes to appeal.

Note: (un)blocks apply to IP addresses; and (un)locks apply to global accounts

Requests for global (un)block

  Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions.
Please also review Global blocking. Only IP addresses can be globally blocked at this moment. Please see #Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding if your request involves an account.
Global blocks don't affect Meta-Wiki, so if your IP address is blocked, you can still appeal here. IP addresses that cause disruption on Meta should be reported at Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat instead of here so that they can be blocked locally.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You know the IP address(es) you wish to have globally blocked or unblocked.
  2. For blocks, the global blocking criteria are met.
  3. For unblocks, your request addresses the original reason for blocking the IP, if any.

To make a request for the address(es) to be blocked or unblocked

Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why the address(es) should be blocked/unblocked.

Global unblock for 163.116.128.0/17

Status:    In progress

Re. block ID #321954 for 163.116.128.0/17

[Infobox text – "Your account or IP address has been blocked. 163.116.128.0/17, you have been blocked by ‪Martin Urbanec‬ until 19:28, 13 January 2024, because: No open proxies: please read the FAQ should you be affected."]

This relates to Netskope web security AS55256.

Blocking Netskope stretches the "no open proxies" policy because:

  • Netskope is a corporate security provider, they are not an open proxy (open in the same sense as open relays for email), nor are they publicly accessible (in that their services are not available to private residents, as far as I know).
  • Unlike a paid VPN service like Nord, Express, etc., the customer can't choose their exit node. For example, our Netskope account manager has told us that organisations in Eastern Australia always exit via the Sydney or Melbourne data centres, and there are only a small number of active IP addresses at each DC (the DC has a /24 to allow future scaling). Therefore, if I was trying to avoid a block, I would be unable to just pick another IP, I'm stuck with whichever one I'm already on (just like if I was in the building and using my employer's fixed NAT address).
  • It's not an anonymizing proxy. Netskope correctly sets the X-Forwarded-For header, so MediaWiki could in theory log the real IP source address in addition to the proxy's address. (I'm not a CheckUser, so I don't know what info is logged.)

I believe this block does more harm than good, because:

  • It blocks all of Netskope's customers worldwide, meaning that people at thousands of businesses are unable to edit or to engage in community discussions from their work computers or WFH devices.
  • /17 is a big range, and some of the /24's within that range might not belong to Netskope. (collateral damage)
  • Affects all Wikimedia projects, even where there has been no history of problems from any of its IPs.
  • Current block affects all editing, even for registered users. It is more usual for IP blocks on local wikis to cover anons and account-creation but not registered. If I'm logged in to an account with good reputation, what should it matter which IP address I'm coming from?
  • It sends the wrong message that to use Wikimedia, you have to disable or bypass your security software.
  • It sets a bad precedent. As more services move from on-prem to cloud-hosted, an increasing number of people are going to be attempting to use Wikimedia via external intermediaries.

Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding

  Note that global blocking currently only applies to IPs, due to a technical limitation. If you wish to request a named account for global [un]locking, please request a global [un]lock here instead. Be sure to follow the instructions below:
  • Your request might be rejected if your request doesn't include the necessary information.
  • Warning! This page is publicly viewable. If the account name is grossly insulting or contains personal information please contact a steward privately in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect or email your request to the stewards OTRS queue at stewards wikimedia org (direct wiki interface) but do not post it here. Thanks.
  • Warning! This is not the place to ask for locks based on your opinion that someone is disruptive. Global locks are used exclusively against vandalism and spam, not because of content disputes, not because you think that someone deserves to be globally blocked. In such cases, you should ask for local blocks at appropriate places.
  • If you are globally locked, you should appeal your lock to stewards wikimedia.org.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting that a global account be (un)locked, please be sure that:

  1. You have evidence of cross-wiki disruption from the account(s).
  2. You can show that it is not feasible to use local-only blocks or other measures like page protection to combat the disruption.
  3. You have considered making the request in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect, especially for account names which will be hidden, or for urgent requests.
To make a request for an account to be locked or unlocked
Copy one of the codes below to the bottom of this section and explain why the account(s) should be locked/unlocked.

Global lock for 1Goldberg2

Status:    On hold

Cross-wiki abuse. WM:RFH: Billinghurst said that “global ban may be more appropriate”. – Mrakia 13:28, 27 March 2021 (UTC)

this user is doing more good than harm and is under the supervision of three administrators of Russian Wikipedia. against blocking. NoFrost (talk) 17:55, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
As had been discussed at the administrators’ noticeboard, the supervision is ineffective. 1Goldberg2 continues his abusive behaviour and harassment of trans people with impunity. Please note: “At 5 wiki’s, 1Goldberg2 has been blocked for vandalism. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker 12:38, 27 March 2021 (UTC)”. – Mrakia 18:48, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
the result in the discussion of administrators did not lead to an indefinite blocking in the Russian Wikipedia, but contained instructions to contact the three administrators-mentors in case of problems. you didn't even ping them. it seems to me a falsification of facts and violation of the rules OTHERPARENT NoFrost (talk) 19:09, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
I don’t have to ping Russian administrators. We’re talking about the cross-wiki abuser. – Mrakia 19:27, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Admins tends not to block this user 'couse he bypasses blocking. Admin forum of ruwiki can not give indulgence for violations in other wikis. Carn (talk) 19:45, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
Vandalism and offencive behavior are two different accusations, aren't they? The user was indefblocked in 4 out of 5 projects because of vandalism in only one article - about Greta Thunberg. In ruwiki, he has an active topic-ban that prevents him from editing the Greta Thunberg ‎article, among others. So, is there any other pattern that could lead to global ban of the user?
Also, regardless of you words about "ineffective supervision", the mentioned discussion at ruwiki has ended with a corrected topic-ban rather than with indefblocking the user. Michgrig (talk) 19:46, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
By the way, look at his last edits on Meta-Wiki: “Fuck Foundation! Jimbo, you are king or moron?”, “Lets throw away safety and inclusion together with divercity and transgenderism from Wiki”. Do you think that’s OK? No warnings, no blockings. – Mrakia 19:56, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
This user has over 30000 edits and over 3000 articles created. Yes, there are some problems, but balance of good and harm should be considered. The recent decision at ruwiki admin's noticeboard does not state that "the supervision is ineffective", and neither does it call for a global ban. I'm against blocking. Землеройкин (talk) 20:25, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
The main reason why his misconduct is ignored in Russian Wikipedia is simple: Russian admins are (in multiple open discussions) admitting that they do not want the work of monitoring his block evasion. This created a paradoxical situation where he can insult people, both subjects of our articles and other Wikipedians, and get blocked for 2 hours at max. In that way, yes, this mentorship is ineffective, and you don’t have to write that out to see the facts. English Wikipedia blocked one of their most prolific editors indefinitely for less, and the fact that he keeps getting slaps on the wrist for the things I would get blocked without appeal for the next 5–10 years is honestly revolting. stjn[ru] 20:43, 27 March 2021 (UTC)
  • I am one of the mentioned mentors of this user on ru-wiki where he is active. He indeed sometimes makes highly questionable statements that are aganist the rules of conduct and when it happens he receives blocks. His positive involvement, however, is vastly overhelming. I believe that for the last six years not more than 0.1% of his editings are of this, questionable type. He took upon himself a very ambitious project - to cover with articles all the missing species of the birds in ru-wiki. He already wrote about 1000 articles of this project and has somewhat less than 7000 articles more to write. This takes most of his time on wiki. We (mentors) constantly strive to minimize his unconstructive editings, and as the last discussion on Admin-noticeboard in ru-wiki showed, there is no need for the local ban on ru-wiki, nor, of course, for a global ban.

Status:    In progress

The participant decided to get rid of his addiction to Wikipedia and chose the "suicide by police" method. At first there were vandal edits, but then he posted the password [8]. Since the accounts are now global, the entire global account has been compromised. Another person took over the account, changed the password and threatens to reveal the email. This violates the Terms of Use "5. Password Security" and corresponds to the reason "Accounts that are suspected to have been compromised".

Long term abuse (cross wiki and Globally) / Mr,p balçi

Hello. Please close this user and all related accounts Globally. All of the following accounts, which are closed locally and globally, belong to him. In addition, some of them in different languages probably do not make good sense. In all wikis, in addition to sabotaging articles, he insults different users of different ethnicities. He is of Turkish ethnicity. He has created countless accounts in Azerbaijani and Turkish articles and has insulted users of Armenian, Kurdish, Persian and Arab ethnicity on various wikis. Many users left Wikipedia forever with insults and threats made by him. https://fa.wikipedia.org/wiki/ویژه:مشارکت‌ها/Mr,p_balçi

Global unblock hardblock change to softblock for 2001:41D0:0:0:0:0:0:0/33

Status:    In progress

One IP (2001:41d0:304:100::4790) on this range is used by Lingua Libre (a tool to import files on Commons, almost half a million files already created by 400+ persons) via OAuth, so it should be change to a soft block (anon only) to allow registered users to edit Commons (IP can't create file on Commons anyway).

Some detail: the range was previously softblock but has been hardblock by @Stanglavine: a few weeks ago (and LinguaLibre datacenter burned down at the same period, it now has a new server, hence the problem arising now) per No open proxies. Technically, all tools using OAuth are kind of similar and falls under this policy, and it's not possible to ask for an exempt for the thousands of people using OAuth. @Jon Kolbert: suggested a soft block would be a good solution to the problem and I found out later, this has been applied in the past, see Steward_requests/Global/2020-03#Global_anonymous_block_for_2001:41D0:0:0:0:0:0:0/32.
