why is my up address blocked. just wanna change the ending to uncut gems cuz it’s very incorrect.


Hello Jon Kolbert noticed that you blocked me on Wikipedia today. I want to know the reason I was blocked today. I did not know that I forget something that made the ban. I promise that I will be more careful what I write.

IP BlockEdit

Dear Jon,

I noticed that you banned my IP address due to my use of a proxy address. I was using a VPN which changed my proxy adress. I usually don't use VPN while editing Wikipedia and I wasn't aware that I could be banned for that. The reason why my VPN was on was that I had to access Google Classroom. I have this glitch whenever I connect to Google Classroom without VPN it doesn't load any components. I hope you will understand that it wasn't on purpose and I had no intention of any harm.

Please remove my block as I want to contribute in developing Wikipedia in my country.

Kind regards,


IP Error and Research QuestionEdit

Dear Jon Kolbert

As you can see from the message below my IP has been blocked. I only just discovered this. I am a writer/research and PhD student in English Literature at SUNY Binghamton and was trying to submit a request for an article to be created about downloading databases. That’s when I got this error. I’m not sure I understand why but what options do I have? I’d like to keep using and hopefully contribute to Wikipedia as a citizen scholar of the world.

Also is there a more simpler method of emailing a question to Wikipedia? My question is: Is there a method for downloading data tables from Wikipedia articles for scholarly use? My example is that I am preparing a reading list for my Field Exam on 20th Century American Literature and I wanted to download the list of New York Time’s bestsellers from the 20th Century Here is te site:

But all I know how to do is copy and paste into excel. Any suggestions?

Well there you have it. My IP error and question.
