Incorrect link on banned Open Proxy IP popupEdit

The popup which appears when user on a banned Open Proxy IP attempts to edit contains an incorrect link. Screenshot below.

The term Open Proxies in the "reason" box should link to WP:NOP, but (when viewed on Wikipedia) it links to [[1]] (which is a disambig page).

I'd be more than happy to make this edit—but I'm not sure if this is a user-editable template. If it is, could somebody point me to it? Thanks!

Because User:Jon Kolbert didn't add a >m: prefix when he did a global block. Our system message use the m: prefix but he wrote the summary by himself. Stryn (talk) 09:05, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 10 March 2020Edit

Global locks and global blocks are different, but what happens in a global lock? Can it be unlocked?

Obviously can. I don't see a clear request.   Not done--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:20, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
  Comment: only stewards can perform global locks/blocks, while administrators could not perform those actions. CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 19:14, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 20 June 2020Edit

Mention the criteria for global blocks as either cross wiki abuse or vandalism or spam, or global block or lock evasion. 2600:387:5:805:0:0:0:88 10:19, 20 June 2020 (EDT)

Ip address blockEdit

Please I just log in only to be told my ip address has been blocked on all wikis. Please what has gone wrong and what have I done? Please someone should help rectify this issue for me. Alhaj Darajaati (talk) 18:10, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Green GiantEdit

Why was I blocked? I always edited right, I always provided the sources, I never vandalized here, is that serious? that's what I get, how nice of you. Come on, seriously, am I just going to have to go a year without editing? Was it because of the comment that I put a link to the source? It was just to show that I wasn't putting lies there, this was confirmed man, I'm really sorry for that, but seriously? I am really upset about this situation, did I always do everything right to be blocked by a litte mistake? Please check if there is something wrong with that, because if I don’t start editing soon again, I won’t be back in a year or so, please man, or if this is resolved or i StragerMan123 will cease to exist. Thank you!

Well, it looks like it was just a mistake, I've already been unlocked, well, thank you very much, if I did something wrong I promise I won't repeat it.

Time to remove the draftEdit

As this is a explanatory/pointer document that we already have translated, let us stop it being a draft. Any issues that anyone has? All minor changes can flow through normal editing processes.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:28, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

It does not capture all cases when global blocks are used. Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

Global blocked problemEdit

sir my account has been blocked from editing Wikipedia" Sir I am new to Wikipedia, I have been blocked due to some mistakes. I will not make any mistake next time. Please unblock me. Sheikh Swim (talk) 09:25, 8 May 2021 (UTC)

Sheikh Swim, hello. I see you are blocked on English Wikipedia. This is not a proper place to make your unblock request. As 1234qwer1234qwer4 has already said, you need to make an unblock request on your enwiki talk page and convince enwiki administrators that you will avoid the conduct which led to the block. You will also have to say what productive contributions will you make instead of advertising/promotion, which is probably the reason you are blocked for. Hulgedtalk⟩ 12:53, 8 May 2021 (UTC)
