I've been blocked for Open Proxy, but my IP is from Telefónica España, so it isn't an Open Proxy. --  TheMrJohannesburg · Parlem-ne! ;)/Talk out! ;) 20:47, 23 June 2011 (UTC)

  Comment The IP adress is not blocked globally afaik, see here. Although it is blocked locally on some wikis (ca-wiki, commons, es-wiki...[1]) Trijnstel 21:30, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
Unblock requested @eswiki and unblocked at commons. I do not know what the procedure is to request an unblock there.
This is a proxy caché service that hundreds of users use to access the Internet. Telefónica is the biggest ISP in the Kingdom of Spain.

i cannot edit as i am blocked, it says its a proxy error. i have no idea why this has happened but need to be unblocked as i need to edit our company wikipedia, thanks

The "i need to edit our company wikipedia page" is why you are locked. Promotional usernames are not allowed on Wikimedia. Ajraddatz (Talk) 14:09, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
As the matter of fact the account is not locked. Nor does it seem to be blocked anywhere. This is probably related to an IP block. Jafeluv 18:58, 30 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Marking as   Not done - there seems to be no lock, therefore a not-valid request. -Barras 14:28, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

I have not engaged on cross wiki spam and frankly deserve to be unlocked. This is rediculous how can I appeal if I am locked from this page. I have never had a warning I have never had a message about this locking. This is silly, as I say I haven't spammed, -- 11:54, 24 June 2011 (UTC)

Non-acceptable username. Regards, Toto Azéro follow the guide ! 08:07, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

  Done fr33kman 20:50, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
I don't disagree with the action, but it's probably not necessary to bring every inappropriate enwiki username here unless they're actually creating accounts across multiple projects. After all, a lot of accounts are blocked for inappropriate usernames on enwiki every day and the cases that actually start registering the same username on other projects afterwards and need to be locked are a very small minority. Just my two cents... Jafeluv 21:19, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
You're probably right actually, but I saw no advantage to allowing the username to edit any WMF wiki. fr33kman 21:40, 28 June 2011 (UTC)
