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


If you are here because you have been affected 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.
Please describe the kind of cross wiki abusive activity you see from the IP. Saying an IP is a long term abuser is not helpful, but saying "IP vandalizes at ban.wikipedia, no.wikipedia and vi.wikipedia" is. This is especially important for range blocks. If you do not provide enough details, your request might be declined.
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 block/unblock for [[Special:Contributions/Some IP address|Some IP address]] ===

When requesting that your IP be unblocked, note that stewards need to know your IP address to even consider a request.
To find your IP, please visit https://www.whatismyip.com/
You are not required to disclose your IP in public - you may make requests privately to any steward on IRC or by email at: stewards wikimedia org

Global unblock for 185.89.36.0/22

Status:    On hold

This was blocked in 2021 as an OP, but in the meantime the range is used by the German internet provider InternetNord ([1]). One of their customers complained to the German VRTS. I have already made an exempt for the range block on dewiki, but I would also request a total unlock globally. Thanks, XenonX3 (talk) 12:18, 23 February 2022 (UTC)

Global unblock for 2001:470::/32

Status:    In progress

The block reason incorrectly identifies this range as an open proxy. It's neither proxy nor open. I learned that some admins believe the Hurricane Electric's service makes it “like” an open proxy, but note that none of the reasons usually given as the rationale for the no open proxies policy apply to it. There is no anonymity nor particularly high potential of abuse. There is no reason why blocking individual /64 or /48 networks wouldn't be effective in case of abuse.--MwGamera (talk) 22:35, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

  Oppose You say that there is no particularly high potential of abuse, but that doesn't match our logs. It's full of spambots. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 03:16, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
The Internet is full of spambots and it would be surprising for a range this huge to carry only benign traffic. I don't have any visibility into Wikimedia logs so can't comment on the actual numbers. Is there any reason why they couldn't be blocked individually like in all the other ranges? In any case, the block reason given doesn't match reality (it's not even weasel worded like the one on EN wiki) and I considered it prudent to try to fix the situation before requesting an exemption from a block that from my POV goes against the guidelines.--MwGamera (talk) 18:02, 4 April 2022 (UTC)
  Support This block hurts me and other people. HE 6to4 tunnel is necessary for my work, ISPs in my area do not give native IPv6. --Kawtaj (talk) 07:07, 7 May 2022 (UTC)
  Support This block hurts me, and I expect other people. My ISP doesn’t give good IPv6 access, and HE tunnelserver.org tunnels are my only good option. Lionel Elie Mamane (talk) 01:43, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
This is an open proxy/web host/colocation provided, used by one or more VPN services, if I'm not mistaken. If users with cross-wiki constructive contributions are affected, you can request a global IP block exemption. I can definitely attest to the Hurricane Electric LLC IP ranges being used for abuse and spambots on Miraheze as well. Dmehus (talk) 02:08, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
It is not an open proxy nor a web host. Every user has a separate, identifiable, and individually bannable prefix routed to them (although possibly more than one). There might be, and there likely are, some open proxies, web hosts, VPNs, etc, as well as spambots and other sources of abusive traffic in it, but that doesn't explain why should the whole range be blocked instead of just the networks with those. Or why should it be claimed to be an open proxy if the actual reason for blocking is some actual (ongoing?) cross-network abuse.--MwGamera (talk) 21:02, 27 May 2022 (UTC)
I can only second this request. This range hasn't been blocked until some point in 2020. At least unblock people from editing when logged in. But in general don't impose a general block because most users will be legitimate, like every normal network. Just block /64 or /48 after abuse has been noticed. --Treysis (talk) 09:18, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

Global unblock for 147.161.237.87

Status:    In progress

When trying to edit a page, I received the block error "The IP address or range 147.161.237.87 has been globally blocked (disabled) by Jon Kolbert for the following reason(s): Open proxy/Webhost. This block will expire on 15:19, 31 October 2024."

This assessment is incorrect; the IP listed is part of a larger range operated by ZScaler (AS62044, 147.161.236.0/23 as well as many others). The IP range is used for Internet egress for corporate customers, who use ZScaler products for MFA-secured access to internal networks. My employer mandates use of ZScaler and it cannot be disabled on the machine. ZScaler do not operate any open public proxies, nor do they offer "privacy" VPN products, it's purely business use for SMEs & corporates. --Chris W. (talk | WP profile) 13:12, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

The IP is static. The user adds the Danish cast of several TV series to non-Danish pages.[7][8][9] The user is already blocked up to 2028 at en.wiki[10], so I would highly recommend a long-term block because I just reverted this person on multiple wikis that seem to lack recent patrollers. --Tbhotch (talk) 20:35, 30 May 2022 (UTC)

Global block for long-term abuse

Status:    In progress

Extreme case of long-term abuse. Almost immediately after any of these long-term blocks expire, this individual targets any and all editors who may have reverted their vandalism in the past and edit-wars with them, with summaries that dox them, with examples including Ponyo, Ymblanter, Mtarch11 - and especially Gadfium. With how aggressive they have behaved toward Gadfium, I honestly would recommend that he contact his local New Zealand authorities. They also target it.Wikipedia & mi.Wikipedia. Ohnoitsjamie has done an exemplary job of addressing this individual on the English Wikipedia, but their conduct on multiple projects needs to be addressed. Just today, they took the opportunity to abuse some more. I request a global block of one-plus year. Botto (talk) 00:01, 18 July 2022 (UTC)

For clarification, this request is not stale. The vandal primarily targets the English Wikipedia and sequentially waits for one of the three blocks to be lifted, before almost immediately going to that part of Auckland and attacking their usual targets -- the next one is 122.56.192.0/20, which expires next Friday. In the meantime, they ocassionally target certain editors on other wikis, as Meta-Wiki contributors Mtarch11 and Daniuu may attest. Botto (talk) 17:38, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
Unfortunately, I can confirm the statement made by colleague Botto. Daniuu (talk) 18:19, 1 August 2022 (UTC)

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 VRT 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.

Please describe abusive activity of an account before reporting them here. Since stewards are often not active at projects the reported accounts are, things that seem obvious to you may not be equally obvious to the reviewing steward.

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.
