Re your email about block issuesEdit

I'm a French Wikipedia user since october 2005. See my profile on http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilisateur:Lpele
I'm surprised I can't edit some WP pages when I'm connected on my dedicated server (Ip address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) hosting some web services :


It says that you blocked this server because there was some security leaks.

I am very surprised about that because my web serveur is secured and I'm the only one to access it.
Could you help please.

Hi, thanks for the email. The block that you encountered is a range block on OVH as they host so many spambots, which are problematic, we have given up complaining to them. Looking at which wikis where you contribute, I would suggest that you apply for a global block IP exemption via m:SRGP, and state that in the application that I directed you there. Alternatively drop an email stewards wikimedia.org.
I don't take these requests on my talk page, as documenting these through the stewards system is important for continuity. — billinghurst sDrewth 09:28, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your message. I think local french Wikipedia allowance of this IP fits more my need than a global block IP exemption. I should ask French WP adminLpele (talk) 11:00, 15 July 2013 (UTC)
