Can you block his IP. Thank you and have a nice day.--Jobas (talk) 00:54, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

There is no global block, and there is no obvious requirement for a checkuser. This is better managed by local communities at this point of time, and that seems to be what is happening.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:07, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Hi; I am a student in Başkent University. ip is used by Başkent Üniversitesi in Turkey. But it was blocked in Turkish wikipedia for unlimited time. block begins: 23:15, 6 Feb. 2011. Since that time whole university can not make any edits in Turkish wikipedia. We university students want to edit turkish wikipedia. Local adminstrators say they are very angry with an old time user and they dont unblock th i.p. and they punish a whole university. It has been a long time and probably the person that makes them angry is graduate by now. Thank you for help. -- 07:43, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

We cannot unblock on, since that is a local issue. There doesn't seem to be any global block on this IP, so nothing we can do. The block is for anonimous users only, so it should be possible for you to create an account from your home IP adress, and then log in at your university. However, feel free to e-mail the blocking admin, explaining the issue. Savhñ 09:51, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
The admins do not seem to help. Creating account that is created from home ip address automatically gets blocked when we login at school. We can not solve the problem in local base thats why we are writing here. Pls show us a way to solve the issue. Thank you sir.
There is nothing that we can do to unblock the IP address. The best that you can do is to contact one of their admins here at meta, and seek their help that way.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:37, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
I am not good here enough here to find the exact true person. Can you help us in person please. I dont know who is their admin at meta. And once again the admins in TR wikipedia are not likely to help. Is not there anyone over them that can help. Banning an whole university for years is insane. Thank you.

This is a shared IP address (corporate proxy server). Plenty of legitimate users make edits from this address, either registered or otherwise.

This user expose my the location of my user IP without my permission and preventing me from unblocking from I tried many times to require his/her location, but all my IP addresses blocked without reasons.

My Region has been exposed to the public without my permission, and that is from using IP trace website, my privacy harmed and his behavior tends to be illegal at

Blocked IPs by his/her without improper reason:

You exposed the IP yourself: de:Special:Contributions/ (Talk) 00:32, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Exposing my IP is without guilt, but expose the region to the public should need the permission of this user. But you guys first do not require my permission, second using the IP trace website to expose my IP region. Those two behaviors tend to be illegal on internet privacy protection. Janagewen (talk) 00:44, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
This seems like nonsense. You personally exposed your IP (any user editing from IP is warned he will expose this, "Du bearbeitest diese Seite unangemeldet. Wenn du deine Änderung speicherst, wird deine aktuelle IP-Adresse in der Versionsgeschichte aufgezeichnet"), thereby accepting that the information of your ISP will become public. He has not exposed your location, merely the location where your IP is registered to. The IP registry is public, it is not an "IP trace website", your IP has not been traced. In any case, not a steward task. Savhñ 00:53, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I think you misunderstand or misinterpret what you referred here. Exposing the IP address to the public does not mean and is not equivalent to exposing the region through IP-Trace Website (third party provider) to the public. Janagewen (talk) 01:00, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
I think you misunderstand the functioning of IP registrars, and the role of stewards. Nothing for us to do here, and I suggest you read the article on IP adresses on the wiki. Nothing has been "traced". Any further irrelevant and absurd comments will simply be removed. Savhñ 01:11, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

After my user account has been blocked on, I try to prove my .net template is reasonable, but this user adds comment like "You have been blocked on enwp because of "Not being here to build an encyclopedia". What you should do is to be unblocked on enwp, but not to do disruptive edits on other projects. --Claw of Slime" on,, and, and trapped me blocked from and The following are the links:

All those are not disruptive edits, this page might say something.

I should not judge it as an illegible behaviour, but just curious why I said "Um, this is the user page of Janagewen." on my user page of, then minutes later my user account blocked and I was patrolled. And this question still turn back to the block of user account Janagewen, what is the exactly reason? Why this user account blocked on, but normal on "Not contribute to", what does it mean? And why if anybody said "I am Janagewen", or "This is Janagewen", and the like, would be blocked immediately? I feel this is a puzzle, or something like a bug in a programme, I need enough and clear reasons to block me on Password Saeba Ryo (talk) 10:32, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Global block for Janagewen and Password Saeba Ryo

Status:    Not done

Since last month I've been blocked from, I made many emails to or to require my unblock, all the replies declined. And I've also trapped and blocked from and only for my .net framework template. Claw of Slime called my suggestion as disruptive and wanted me blocked from the entire For my template I've posted to community of Microsoft to evaluate, And today, another user account of mine, Password Saeba Ryo has been blocked again. Nothing this user account written was removed, only for the information about that link has been stroked out by Claw of Slime,as and too.

I've requested Wikimedia and Wikipedia to review this case, blocking me from, again and again, but ignored. There is no fairness at all, the users who broke the rules of without reasonable punishment, only block me so easily, treat me as a shit or coward. So frankly, visiting and posting on is my greatest shame for this unfair treatments to me. So for I request to block my user account from globally to protect my own reputations. I've tried my best to protect reputations of contributing suggestions to correct so many main articles, but eventually I am warned, threatened and punished again and again! I've already lost all my faith on Block me from globally is the wish of all those guys, so I do them a favour, require this block request myself. Janagewen (talk) 16:13, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
