Ain't banning /20 networks too much?

Why did you block my home ISP? 89.208.160.0/20

Unblocked, no longer seems to be acting as a proxy. Jon Kolbert (talk) 00:50, 2 January 2020 (UTC)

Request for unblocking Izak Furstberg

Dear Jon Kolbert, My name is Izak von Fürstberg, and I am share holding: IP Adresse 54.187.77.98 und der gesperrte Bereich ist 54.187.0.0/16.

Wikimedia Stewards, Aaron Green, has suggested me to contact you, regarding an IP blocking of our Wikipedia accounts, the German Wikipedia in particular.

We have disabled all proxies in any browser, already as requested by Wikimedia Stewards. The reason of (seemingly automatic blocking) was durchgefürhrt angeblich by you. Also Karsten11 Administrator, with whom I communicated til recently, suggested to contact you, to lift the blocking.

Please be aware that the several IP accounts in Wikipedia (IP 54.187.77.98) are honest and ony want to serve Wikipedia with honest and good articles, about classical music in particular.

This includes the attempts to put a light on Leschetizky World Congress. A very succesful event that has grasped attention of many media in the region of Salzkammergut and beyond.

  • It is the least of the least intention to damage, or illicit change texts in Wikipedia.

We understand that a full article on Wikipedia about this Congress is momentaruly not possible, due to the mainly regional coverage only of this event.

However, we hope that future Leschetizky World Congress (there are already plans for 2024 at Bad Ischl, (Bad Ischl and Salzkammergut; EU Kulturhauptstadt 2024) for a second LWC) can get the historic mentioning it has all musicological and historical grounds in its contents.

I, Izak von Fürstberg, hope to come into a friendly dialogue with you, in order to unblock the Wiki accounts of me and my musicologist colleagues who momentarily use (seemingly) the same IP address.

With fiendly regards Izak Fürstberg.

PS you may always contact me by e-mail:NewCosmosFestival@gmail.com The original address : neuemusikwien@gmail.com is no longer in use. Thank you.

Blocked IP due to VPN

Please permit me to edit with the IP block exempt. I am using an open proxy due to the fact that I connect to internet using a VPN connection which is permanent on our home-router. Prins Jan de 1e (talk) 21:20, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

'Prins Jan de 1e' is one of my two sock puppets. Please also permit me to edit under the sock puppet 它是我. 它是我 (talk) 21:27, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
My main account is 'Itsme' and that account has already been granted permission to edit with the IP block exempt (a few years ago). I confirm that both '它是我' and 'Prins Jan de 1e' are my sock puppets. I mainly have been active on the dutch Wikipedia. Itsme (talk) 21:30, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
I was instructed to contact you to get the ban lifted. My current IP-adress is 81.19.209.60 and the blocked IP is 81.19.208.0/23. Due to the nature of VPN, it is likely that my IP-address will change in the near future.它是我 (talk) 21:43, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

Why blocking all VPNs?

Hi Jon! Won't blocking all VPNs stop everyone in China from contributing like me (although temporarily, soon back in Sweden).

You can make a request from a global IP block exemption to continue editing from a VPN. Jon Kolbert (talk) 02:31, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Block question (on IP or IP range)

I was reviewing the edits of this user when I had found problems:

I noticed the user was blocked, but I couldn't figure out why. Could you tell me more. It says:

03:41, 15 November 2019: Jon Kolbert (meta.wikimedia.org) globally blocked 60.52.0.0/16 (expires on 15 May 2020 at 03:41, anonymous only) (Infected network: Contact stewards if you are affected).

Yet the IP is 60.52.69.44. I'm confused why a global block of 60.52.0.0/16 would also apply to that IP. Can you explain? I'd also like to know what the reason for the block was.

I generally edit on English wikipedia. So if I have not acknowledged any response from you here, could you ping me there? I'm not sure if I would see the ping here or not. -David Tornheim (talk) 13:19, 3 January 2020 (UTC)

@David Tornheim: That IP is blocked because 60.52.69.44 is in the 60.52.0.0/16 range block; you can learn more about range blocks at the previous link. We were experiencing an extraordinarily high level of abuse from this ranges and others from this network, and as such, anonymous editing from them have been blocked and users must either log in or request an account. Jon Kolbert (talk) 02:26, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Please unblock Newreaderx

Dear Jon Kolbert, could you please unblock my Newreaderx account? It was blocked for the reason of an open proxy. I generaly edit on Dutch wikipedia. User:newreaderx 195.181.172.246 bereik: 195.181.172.0/22.

@Newreaderx: Please follow the instructions to make a formal request for a global IP block exemption here. Jon Kolbert (talk) 02:26, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

I don't quite clear why I have to blind me.

I really used VPN, but my actual IP address in mainland China, I can't use Wikipedia here, so if I need to access Wikipedia, I must use VPN. Wikipedia was propaganda into a liberty of the encyclopedia, I just changed the incorrect information of our school, and then I was blocked, is this correct?

@Cjmjohn: Please follow the instructions to make a formal request for a global IP block exemption here. Jon Kolbert (talk) 02:27, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

The evidence from those editing here is that they don't read or don't understand. I am wondering whether a little text after open proxy link may have a little use [[m:NOP|Open proxy]] (IP block) <shrug>. It won't be perfect, though it may help a few to understand that it isn't personal.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:50, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I proposed making a template similar to what they do on enwiki (en:Template:Blocked_proxy, for example) with a multi-lingual template explaining the nature of the block, especially important for open proxy/webhost blocks. Unfortunately due to intensive real life commitments I have not had the time to address this myself, but I welcome feedback/contributions from the community so we can implement a solution for this and hopefully improve understanding of blocks and the multilingualism and accessibility of all our block messages. Jon Kolbert (talk) 04:23, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
I was thinking a simple word edit to appear in the block summary as a mere indicator. If you wanted to give more text, you would be better to add something to m:NOP in an anchored section as that is where you are already pointing people. I don't see how the template helps, it just creates work in the tagging of pages, and you would need to later remove them post-block.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:02, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

IP Range block affects Amtrak trains

Hi Jon, blocks #9147107, #9147108 appear to affect editors using Amtrak wifi. Is this intended? The range blocked is 70.42.144.0/20, and the IP I'm on, 70.42.144.30, is allocated to an w:Amtrak train. The listed reason is "Open proxy: Webhost" and while 70.42.144.30 isn't a web host, I'm not familiar with the nuances of meta's open proxy policy. Just wanted to make you aware of this so that you can tweak the block if need be. Wugapodes (talk) 15:00, 31 December 2019 (UTC)

@Wugapodes: 70.42.144.30 and the associated range fall under Internap Corporation's network, (see WHOIS here). We see a lot of abuse coming from that network from both LTAs and spambots. Are you certain that the whole /20 is allocated to Amtrak? Happy New Year btw. Jon Kolbert (talk) 01:17, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
I don't know about the whole /20 range, but I am sure that while using the Amtrak wifi I hit this range block. The permission error page said I was editing from the IP address 70.42.144.30, so I assume the IP is correct. It may be that Amtrak contracts out it's wifi to some Internap service other than web hosting? If so the block makes sense and I was just confused by the specific reason. Wugapodes (talk) 02:04, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
Can we block a /21 and a /22 and at least get 3/4 of the range out of the way, or even that and a /23, for 7/8ths? And see whether that improves things?  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:48, 2 January 2020 (UTC)
@Wugapodes and Billinghurst: I've simply changed the /20 block to anon-only to avoid impacting logged-in users who use the Amtrak internet. Let's see if this is a reasonable solution, if not, we can always adjust as necessary. Jon Kolbert (talk) 02:22, 4 January 2020 (UTC)

Interestingly enough, today I got assigned an IP from Amazon's range (54.92.235.88) while on an Amtrak train, tripping the range block on 54.92.128.0/17. Didn't affect me on Wikipedia (I'm admin) but did on Wikidata. Not sure what to make of that. Mackensen (talk) 21:38, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

@Mackensen: SRGP for gIPBE.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:18, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

False Block

I have been blocked by RicherMan66 as a sock puppet of Timwikisidemen even though I'm not. The reason was that I added unsourced, promotional content and Possible COI to the W2S. None of that is true, I haven't even made a single edit to W2S, I only took part in the discussion of article's entry for deletion. --Masterpk404 (talk) 10:06, 8 January 2020 (UTC)

Blocking VPN is not ok for logged-in users

While I do understand that a VPN can be used to spam, you shouldn't block VPNs for people who have a user on wikipedia and are logged in. If such a user is spamming you can warn/block/delete the user. You blocked a huger range: 162.253.70.0/23 and a NordVPN server has the IP address 162.253.71.249 which is affected by the block. Tessus (talk) 03:30, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

Some countries require VPN to access Wikipedia. How can logged in VPN users edit Wiki?

I am logged in, but can't edit. Why does Wiki block VPN users? In Turkey, China, and other places, Wiki is only accessible via VPN. How can VPN users overseas edit Wiki? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Zhefu (talk)

Robin Hawdon Wikipedia entry

This entry is still marked as 'having multiple issues' after a long period. The issues appear to be verification for the statement that Robin Hawdon was scheduled for a James Bond film test, and also the statement on his personal life. The first cannot be verified officially since the interviews with the James Bond producers (Salzman & Broccoli) took place almost 50 years ago, and there is no record, except perhaps in agent's long stored archives. However the occasion was well known in show business circles at the time. The second issue, family history, is well verified by the author and family members. Please can these issues be accepted and the notation deleted.

I would suggest starting a discussion on the talk page of the article you are interested in modifying to discuss the proposed changes. Jon Kolbert (talk) 03:54, 21 January 2020 (UTC)

Requesting unblocking

Hi Jon - I haven't attempted any edits on Wikipedia in a couple of years and note that I am now blocked. I'm assuming this is due to a VPN that I put in place last year. I can easily turn it off when using this website and had no idea it would cause an issue. Please let me know the proper procedure - I'm fairly new at this.

Thanks!

Request for unblock

Hello, I am extremely sorry for the inconveniences made by me on my talk page in March 2019. I was blocked for the self promotion. I appealed 2-3 times in March 2019 to unblock but request became declined.

Now I believe that Wikipedia is not a social media profile for self promotion or not for creating article about myself. I understand the policies. From yesterday I had appealed 3 times with extreme apologies. But after declining the request administrators blocked me on talk page. Now this is last option for me to unblock my account. I agree all the terms and conditions of the Wikipedia, I will really thankful if you help me. I am addicted to Wikipedia now because social media is banned in our territory. You can check my new account User:Anzer Creation 's contribution. I have fairly contributing Wikipedia for making more authentic information available here.


Help me to get unblocked.

Cloudflare WARP users may be included in an ip range blocked by this user

i experienced my first block in 14 years when doing a simple, responsible edit; it appears the IP range this user has blocked is used (at least today) by Cloudflare WARP for some users who are using its free VPN service (a feature of the 1.1.1.1 app on iOS/iPadOS in my case); after i turned off the WARP VPN i was able to complete my edit; strangely enough, the whatismyip.com service was reporting a different ip, not in the blocked range, but ip-address.com showed i was in the range; i’m mentioning these details because a lot of users may be baffled by this block and find their way to this user page; i have no way of verifying whether the stated reason for the block (“open proxy”) was (or still is) valid for the blocked ip range --Garbanzito (talk) 21:44, 24 March 2020 (UTC)

@Garbanzito: The text at the top of the page in edit mode says request a global IP block exemption. It is good advice to follow, reading at global IP block exemptions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:43, 25 March 2020 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: thanks; the text at top begins "Before you complain…", but i'm not complaining, i'm offering an additional workaround beyond the one case the text mentions ("changing the [browser] settings …"); i had no such browser settings, but i did have a VPN in use — turning off the VPN was a quick fix, good enough for me, and probably more achievable for some than learning the incantations for an exemption; others, who really need their VPNs, might be served best if the references on open proxy rules were updated to point out that VPNs can trigger the problem --Garbanzito (talk) 03:05, 26 March 2020 (UTC)

Blocage

Bonjour, je suis bloqué depuis ce jour avec le message suivant : « Le blocage a été réalisé par Jon Kolbert (meta.wikimedia.org). Le motif fourni est Open Proxy: Colocation webhost - Contact stewards if you are affected. Début du blocage : 13 novembre 2019 à 18:10 Expiration du blocage : 13 février 2022 à 18:10 Votre adresse IP actuelle est 84.17.61.52 et la plage bloquée est 84.17.60.0/23 »

Je vois que c'est toi qui a procédé à mon blocage. J'ai déjà fait un message à la liste de stewards pour signifier qu'il doit y avoir erreur car je suis un utilisateur ancien et chevronné, mais je t'en fais un aussi pour avoir plus d'explications (en français, puisque je vois que tu parles français). Avec plus de 150 000 contributions au compteur sur WP-fr, 750 000 sous Roland45-Bot, près de 6 000 images chargées sur Commons, je pense avoir fait mes preuves et me serais bien passé de ce genre de démarche. J'ai participé au dernier Wikiconcours de désébauchage et participe actuellement à WikiChezNous.

De ce que je comprends, c'est que j'aurais utilisé un proxy ouvert (Tor ou VPN). Cela m'est effectivement arrivé, mais pas pour Wikipédia. Mais comme il y a plusieurs ordinateurs dans la maison, il a pu y avoir une erreur de manipulation.

Merci de bien vouloir rétablir la situation normalement en débloquant mes comptes.

English Wikipedia block of IP

Jon Kolbert, I was browsing around English Wikipedia, and I came across an article about "Investment wine". I saw that the article is tagged as being suspiciously edited, and so I started snooping into who had edited it. That led me to seeing that you had blocked for a long time an IP address that seemed especially focused on the article, along with and article about "En primeur". Then, I saw another IP address that had come along a few days later, ALSO editing the same two articles; but it was blocked for only 61 days. I'm becoming more and more fascinated by the administrative processes that help keep amazing Wikipedia functioning smoothly. Could you explain to me (maybe on my English Wikipedia User Talk page, since I don't use this Meta-Wiki site), why there was a very long block for one IP, but a shorter one for another IP who was editing the same two articles? - AppleBsTime (talk) 23:01, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

IP Block

Hello Jon Kolbert, I noticed that you banned my IP address due to my use of a proxy address. I hadn't realized that I was connected via a proxy. I usually use that to circumvent govt censorship and to maintain some level of anonymity online. I will be more careful in the future and will make sure that I'm never connected to Wikipedia via a proxy or a VPN. Therefore, I request that you unblock my IP with the assurance that I won't repeat the same mistake again. Thank you so much.

I am also blocker, but I have no VPN: You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reasons:

Your IP address is in a range that has been blocked on all Wikimedia Foundation wikis. The block was made by Jon Kolbert (meta.wikimedia.org).

Otherwise, to discuss the block please post a request for review on Meta-Wiki or send an email to the stewards OTRS queue at stewards@wikimedia.org including all above details.

Duration of proxy blocks

Hi Jon,

Just noticed that you are globally blocking a certain category of proxies for a period of 1 or 2 years. I'm doing the same on nlwiki. Although the block period in my case is undefined, I also unblock when the IP is not anymore a proxy for a certain period of time. Most of the IPs in this proxy category are far-east and dynamic. So I think you are in this way building up quite some future collateral damage.

Proxy IP Block

Dear Jon,

Dearest Jon,

I just found out I was blocked from making edits on Wikipedia due an "Open Proxy" from what I believe. I didn't actually realize that VPNs weren't allowed to be used by editors on Wikipedia. I've currently turned off my VPN, so I was just hoping you could remove the block as I'd like to continue editing and contributing on Wikipedia.

I fixed your userpage code here and on enwiki by replacing File:Amphiprion ocellaris (Clown anemonefish) PNG by Nick Hobgood.jpg with File:Amphiprion ocellaris (Clown anemonefish) by Nick Hobgood.jpg. Sorry if you didn't want me to do that. –MJLTalk 22:49, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

Dear Jon, I think you should look at this IP address carefully. This ip address is causing a lot of sabotage at vi.wikipedia and it appears to be a proxy. I hope you will check this ip address and give the answer soon. Love Đặng Vũ Lân (talk) 16:02, 24 September 2020 (UTC)

Blocage de Sankakiss

Dear Jon,

J'écris en français car je me souviens que tu as un bon niveau dans cette langue.

La nouvelle utilisatrice Sankakiss dont je m'occupe dans ses débuts m'a envoyé un e-mail car elle est bloquée et s'adresse à moi pour résoudre cela.

Elle a reçu le message suivant :

Elle ajoute ceci : Cela n'a rien à voir avec moi vu qu'au 13 novembre 2019 je n'étais même pas inscrite, bref je ne peux plus poster sur WP. Ces jours ci j'ai du changer ma box SFR qui est tombée en panne c'est peut être en lien???

Sachant qu'elle me semble sérieuse, pourrais-tu la débloquer ? Merci d'avance. --Jacques Ballieu (talk) 21:49, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

@Jacques Ballieu: L'adresse IP qu'elle utilise appartient à un VPN ou à un proxy, elle doit demander une exemption en nous contactant avec le lien dans le message de blocage pour recevoir une exemption. Jon Kolbert (talk) 16:14, 18 October 2020 (UTC)

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. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by XuakzmskK (talk) 20:34, 4 May 2020 (UTC)

IP Block

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 Question

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.
