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]] ===
{{Status}} <!-- Do not remove this template -->
* {{Luxotool|IP address}}
Description, evidence, diffs, etc. --~~~~
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 block for 2A0B:F4C0:16C:0:0:0:0:0/48

Status:    In progress

Tor node. -- CptViraj (talk) 17:08, 6 November 2021 (UTC)

CptViraj I see that the TorBlock is enabled on this wiki, per Special:Version. I assume this is enabled on most if not all wikis. Thus, since this is a Tor exit node, shouldn't this already be blocked from anonymous editing and account creation by way of this extension? Dmehus (talk) 22:54, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Hi. I wasn't aware of the extension. I had seen stewards blocking Tor nodes so I decided to report this one. But see, the extension is also enabled on the English Wikipedia but a edit was still made from the range in 2020, see en:Special:Contributions/2A0B:F4C0:16C:0:0:0:0:0/48. -- CptViraj (talk) 17:55, 12 November 2021 (UTC)
CptViraj Hrm, interesting. I wonder if the TorBlock database of Tor exit nodes is updated automatically on Wikimedia? Pinging Martin in to this thread, in his SRE capacity, as he'd know for sure. Dmehus (talk) 16:57, 13 November 2021 (UTC)
IIRC the TorBlock extension doesn't work for IPv6; I remember reading this in an earlier discussion for a tor block here at SRG. JavaHurricane 14:36, 15 November 2021 (UTC)
JavaHurricane, ah, interesting!  Thank you very much!! Do you happen to have the diff/permanent link to that SRG discussion by chance? I'd like to look into this a bit more. Dmehus (talk) 20:38, 20 November 2021 (UTC)
@Dmehus: see archived gblock request from August here. JavaHurricane 00:16, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

Global unblock for 2a01:4f8:c17:3e93::1

The block was made by [//meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Jon_Kolbert Jon Kolbert] (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is ''[[m:NOP|Open Proxy]]: Colocation webhost - Contact [[m:Special:Contact/stewards|stewards]] if you are affected''. * Start of block: 18:18, 15 nov 2019 * Expiry of block: 18:18, 15 feb 2022 Your current IP address is 2a01:4f8:c17:3e93::1 and the blocked range is 2A01:4F8:0:0:0:0:0:0/29.

(wikimedia-globalblocking-ipblocked-range) (MediawikiApi::ApiError)

Hi, 2a01:4f8:c17:3e93::1 is the IPv6 equivalent of 78.47.150.64, the server of mine where I operate Wikimedia bots from. I can confirm that it won't be used as OpenProxy, could you please unblock it? (It's a static IP, there's no need to unblock the range, only that specific IP)--Ferdi2005[Mail] 14:50, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

Ferdi2005 Though I'm not as active on the Wikimedia wikis, I do follow the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect IRC channel, and this thread caught my attention. I believe, since this is a web host/colocation provider IP address, it's quite unlikely to be unblocked globally by Wikimedia stewards, per NOP. If you operate approved Wikimedia bots on one or more Wikimedia wikis, I think the better venue for this request would be to request a global IP exemption (and very likely local IP block exemption(s)) for your bot account. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 16:38, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
@Dmehus:. But that IP corresponds only to my server (it isn't a web host. I'ts a VPS server) and I operate also an OAuth bot, so ad hoc IP extemptions won't work. The IPv4 has already been unlocked in July, but now there's also IPv6. I'll notice stewards when and if I stop using this IP (for instance, because I change VPS provider)--Ferdi2005[Mail] 16:44, 7 November 2021 (UTC)
Ah, if it's a dedicated IP address assigned only to your VPS server, I'm not certain what the preferred practice is in this case, but since the entire range is blocked globally, it's sort of a block all or nothing approach (at least globally). That being said, globalblock-whitelist user right exists, to which, at least on this wiki, Meta administrators can be requested to whitelist specific IPs, presumably with a very valid use case. However, because this is done locally, you'd still be in the scenario of having to request this locally on wikis where your approved bot operates. Personally, I would think the global IP block exemption/local IP block exemption(s) would probably still be the preferred practice, but I guess we will have to see what Stewards recommend here.

@Ferdi2005: Global blocks/FAQ and SRGP  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:32, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
Is there anything I could ask locally on Wikimedia Commons? It's there that the oAuth app makes edit on various users' behalf. In the other projects, only a single user is used. @Dmehus and Billinghurst:--Ferdi2005[Mail] 20:36, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
But if the bot account is editing whilst logged in, why wouldn't an IP block exemption (global and local) not suffice? The idea you've proposed, globally unblocking the single IP then reblocking the range in two ranges, excepting that one IP address, seems rather convoluted. You seem to have articulated a decent use case for IP block exemptions for your bot account, so that seems the way to go, to be honest. Dmehus (talk) 21:05, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
In terms of the OAuth comment, looking at Special:ListGroupRights, it seems that registered users have all the user rights needed to propose or update OAuth consumers, so there shouldn't be any user rights issues getting in the way. In order words, it seems to strictly be the IP block issue. Per this page, it looks like all you need to do is put this template on the user talk page of your bot account, or your main account, provided you link to a diff where you've confirmed that was your main account, stating your reason for the local IP block exemption. It may be helpful to additionally link to the permalink to this thread. However, that only deals with the local IP block. You would need to go to SRGP first. Hope this helps. Dmehus (talk) 21:14, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
Actually, looking at this page, that IP address isn't locally blocked on Wikimedia Commons. Thus, as of right now, you'd only need to request the global exemption at SRGP. Dmehus (talk) 21:16, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
Looking at this local global block log action, it looks like Sakretsu has already disabled that global block locally, so if it's just Wikimedia Commons, you shouldn't be effected in any way. Dmehus (talk) 21:20, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
This shouldn't affect your message, but it's actually about the managing OAuth grants permission (mwoauthmanagemygrants). ~~~~

  Comment @Ferdi2005: Commons can do as they please, they can locally override any IP block imposed by a steward. You would need to address such a request to c:Com:AN  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:16, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

I see that Sakretsu did it also for the IPv6, I thought that he had lifted the block only for the IPv4. So, for me it’s alright. Thanks! --Ferdi2005[Mail] 22:20, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

Global block for 2600:387::/32

Status:    In progress

Cross-wiki abuse. Fully blocked on 3 wikis, partially blocked on many more. ---- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 00:49, 8 November 2021 (UTC)

Question: isn't that a rather large IPv6 residential ISP range to globally block, or did you mean the ::/64? Dmehus (talk) 04:42, 8 November 2021 (UTC)
Yes, it is large, but the damage by anons in it is quite impressive. -- Jeff G. ツ (please ping or talk to me) 11:56, 8 November 2021 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: It is not the purpose to put the interests of domestic users behind those of spambots. So asking for a block of a /32 without duration, without evidence, without a finer view of the issue is problematic. There are other means to manage spambots and I am not seeing you dealing with this in areas where we can address spambots. Please put away the sledgehammer.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:26, 10 November 2021 (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.

  • I'm unsure about Victor Trevor and his alternative accounts Sheldon Cooper and VT Bot, but Niveles is involved in a cross-wiki socking campaign that has even reached nlwiki and definitely warrants a lock. ~StyyxTalk? ^-^ 16:53, 4 December 2021 (UTC)

Request for Global unblock

Status:    In progress

Dear colleagues, I decided to contact you based on the e-mail address of the Azerbaijani-speaking Wikipedian, I would like to inform you that the user is one of the active Wikipedia patrols in Azerbaijan, and I present his appeal to you below.

Hello, I apologize for writing here, but there is no other way, please take a step on the issue.

Dear Steward Please comment on this injustice - I ask for a reasonable approach to my personal application, I do not have another profile, Perhaps they considered the issue that happened in 2019. In 2019, I wrote to the admins that - Please to stop my User:Elshadiman profile and activate User:Elshad Iman (Elşad İman) profile, because I do my editing with User:Elshad Iman (Elşad İman) in my Azerbaijani and Russian profiles and I do not need an alternative user profile https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Elshad_Iman_(El%C5%9Fad_%C4%B0man)/Archive_1#October_2014

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Steward_requests/Global/2021-w43#Global_lock_for_Elshadiman_sock(s)

but they wrote that I was using other profiles Please contact (Check user) and make sure that I have 1 profile and do not need another one. I want to continue my edits because wikipedia has become my way of life and I ask you to remove the block of my profile. The IP address is 85.132.29.163, the block ID is 11796216. Thanks --Araz Yaquboglu (talk) 09:07, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

Hello. I think something went wrong with the block. The user explicitly requested his side profile to be banned (which was later determined as a sock?). Elshad Iman is an experienced and helpful user; admins (including me) has given him certain privileges based on his contributions. There might be reasons to block him from a particular Wikimedia project, but as for azwiki, I think the otherwise. Please, reconsider the global block decision. Cheers, — Toghrul R (talk) 07:49, 10 November 2021 (UTC)
