Global block for cross-wiki spambots

Status:    Done

Very nice site! spam. Please block these IPs for at least one week as they are repeatedly abused. I've noticed that IPs used for VNS! spam has been used not only for one session. Some IPs seemingly do not have edits. That is 1) were not able to go beyond the global filter for sw 2) where creations were deleted. Thanks, --Glaisher [talk] 06:04, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

This IP-address is not globally blocked or locally blocked in wikis where you have edits, so there is nothing to unblock or give exemption to. This IP-address is only locally blocked on Wikipedia in Dutch where you today have no edits. If you have intention to start contribute in Dutch and can't get another IP-address, report back. -- Tegel (Talk) 06:28, 9 May 2014 (UTC)

Global unblock for 82.192.95.184

Status:    converted to a soft block

When I use free internet access via hamburg.freifunk.net (a charitable NGO based organisation of the civil society like wikipedia by the way), I get blocked for editing, even though I am logged in. Why should my IP-address be a concern, when wikipedia knows my login? What is the difference to my other access providers, where I am not blocked? German Telekom gives me a new IP-address every day and in the office I share the same IP adress with 5000 colleagues. What is safer or better for wikipedia there? The message I get is:

Sorry, I don't understand anything. I'm on holiday in a tiny Bavarian city. The hosts of the guesthouse gave me a HOTSPLOTS (hotsplots.de) free WLAN login ticket for their hotspot.

I've locked his accounts and blocked some of his IP addresses. Unfortunately he has quite a few, so blocks will not be able to completely stop him. The only contributions xwiki are POV edits and harassment, for which he is locally blocked on three projects (on a variety of different accounts). Ajraddatz (talk) 00:20, 21 May 2014 (UTC)

Global unblock for 65.49.14.139

Status:    anonymous only, enWP has local block which stewards cannot circumvent

I have used two accounts on Wikipedia (both of which are retired), and planned on starting a third when this message popped up: "Your IP address has been blocked on all wikis.

The block was made by Ajraddatz (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Abused open proxy..

Start of block: 16:30, 26 March 2014 Expiry of block: 16:42, 11 March 2015 Your current IP address is 65.49.14.139." First of all, I was able to edit after the block had started, and I have not abused my accounts in any way, shape, or form. This is the second time I have encountered this issue and would like it to be fixed. Thanks! --65.49.14.139 16:02, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Your IP is blocked as a part of a global rangeblock on 65.49.0.0/17, which has many open ports and much abuse has come from it. The block is anonymous only, so if you have an account then you'll be able to edit still. If you need an account (though you suggested you had two already), you could request one from the account creation system since enwiki is where you want to edit from. Ajraddatz (talk) 19:37, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks Ajraddatz! This has gotten frustrating in that it has happened twice to me in the past month or so. For some reason, my IP keeps switching to those of abusers or vandalizers. Anyways, I'll try that, thanks! 65.49.14.140 20:13, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz Well, I logged into one of my accounts, and tried to edit, but I'm still blocked. Is there anything else I can do (I have made a request with the account creation system, btw)? Apollo828 (talk) 20:42, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
The IP range is also blocked locally. You'll need to request local exemption though the unblock ticket request system at w:WP:UTRS. Sorry for the complicated process :S Ajraddatz (talk) 20:50, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

Your IP address is not blocked. Otherwise, you have not provided sufficient information for us to attend to this request. If you wish for assistance you will need to include the full block message. It is possible that the wiki where you were editing has blocked you locally (username or account) and if that is the case then you should request attention to the matter there.  — billinghurst sDrewth 16:18, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Global block for the IP of Avoided

Status:    Not done

Now I have another idea, in the case of Avoided: Why we don´t global block his IP, then he can´t produce more account. I think this is a possibility, because he isn´t only in the German active, he is also in the English and French Wikipedia (see the first query on my documented list). The problem with the IP is, he produce every day more than five account.

There are now some range for the case, when anybody will global block:

Maybe youshould block for three accounts, the damage of this user is very high, cost our administrator many force, energie and I think this is a time. And what do you think to block

Avoided, because he created many offended username and we should global block him. --Olmoj (talk) 19:23, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

It has been several months now. I am requesting unblock. I have read all the policies. I have proposed some good edits. I will not sock puppet again now having the consequences. Monitor my talk page for some edit proposals. I realized that blocks are to prevent disruption, not to punish. I will assume good faith to the community, assuming that the community is doing the same. I am sorry for sock puppetry. I have read the welcome page to see what good edits I can make. My new reason to be on Wikipedia is to participate in community discussion, copyedit, revert and report vandals, and clean up bad articles. I promise not to sock puppet again. In fact, I will participate in the SPI discussions. After all, many of the best editors have made mistakes before. 98.169.63.91 10:59, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

@Trijnstel: any opinion? User is still blocked on three projects at least. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:47, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
See this previous request in February, which I denied. I stick to that opinion. Trijnsteltalk 10:04, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
I'm setting the status as "not done" then. Pundit (talk) 10:55, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Global unlock for Samotny Wędrowiec

Status:    Done

Hello, I am requesting an unlock for Samotny Wędrowiec. There is at least one other person who uses this IP address to edit Wikipedia, but right now it is I - the owner of said account - who is posting this and I was always the only person who used that account (just to make things clear and avoid misunderstandings). The reason why I was blocked is mostly due to my intentional actions (though I wasn't thinking straight at that moment and my decisions were not rational, but made on an emotional impulse). I was becoming increasingly frustrated with a certain group of users who were combating all of my constructive edits and kept reverting them, usually without getting involved in the discussion at all and ignoring the consensus that was achieved there (some of my uploads were also targeted by unreasonable copyright infringement accusations and subsequently removed, the arguments of which were based mostly on their points of view rather than facts).

This frustration reached its zenith following three months of pointless struggle at this page, which resulted in an outburst of unreasonable and inappropriate behaviour on my part (I acted similarly on the Polish Wikipedia, where POV-pushing is at its worst and the entire encyclopedia is used almost like a propaganda machine). I actually wanted to get banned permanently so that I would not feel inclined to waste my time on arguments that are impossible to win against people who will just sweep you under the carpet. Upon realizing that my actions were not enough to warrant a lock, I vandalized the pages of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Roman Dmowski - knowing that this would receive attention. I was right and my account was blocked shortly thereafter.

Of course, I realize that my behaviour was completely inappropriate and I should not have lost my temper under any circumstances (I guess the worst thing you can do on the internet is indeed lose your temper, as traces of the effects will always remain in one form or another). However, after a month away from Wikipedia and not being able to log in, I've decided it's time to return. You can see that before my outburst of anger I made countless constructive contributions to Wikipedia using that account, including the creation and expansion of numerous articles, as well as the uploading of various files - some of which have not been removed and simply cannot be accused of infringing anything.

I believe that I have learned my lesson and I wish to become a valuable member of this project again. If given the chance, this time I would try to take a different approach; I would take things less seriously, I wouldn't let myself get provoked or lose my temper and I wouldn't insult other users even if I felt they'd given me plenty of good reason to do so (be that through edit warring and ignoring discussions, harassing me or abusing their power). Now I am also more familiar with the whole process of locking and what constitutes it.

Kind regards,

--82.39.146.153 17:23, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

I would appreciate it if someone could respond so I can at least know that this is being considered. --82.39.146.153 21:26, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
@Pundit: you applied the global lock on the basis of information received - can you review please? QuiteUnusual (talk) 13:17, 15 May 2014 (UTC)
I appreciate the honest admission of wrongdoing and in good faith I'm unlocking the account from editing. Please, make constructive edits from now on :) Pundit (talk) 10:52, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Global lock and HIDE for the usernames of xwiki account-creation vandalism in Japanese

Status:    Done

These usernames insult those who concern a certain current topical problem. The problem is related to a nuclear disaster in March 2011 at Fukushima (福島), Japan. And I see that this Vandal enjoys having the bot create her/his talk-pages with these insulting names. Thank you. --Kanjy (talk) 12:44, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
