Global block/unblock for Edit

Status:    In progress

@Green Giant:, I'm sorry, but I think it's a mistake. For the last time I haven't edited Wiki because of employment. In Russian Wiki also, I'm inactive for now. Now I'm here because I need to finish my new GA article. I beg you! --Reylanno (talk) 08:11, 11 April 2020 (UTC)[]

Hello. This range (5.164.0.0/16) was blocked because more than half the new accounts created in the last couple of months were spambots. I have changed the block so it does not affect logged in users. Please confirm that you can edit. --Green Giant (talk) 08:31, 11 April 2020 (UTC)[]
Thank you very much, @Green Giant:! But also I want to say that I haven't created any accounts and used only my "Reylanno" account. Anyway, yes, I can freely edit pages, thank you. Reylanno (talk) 08:35, 11 April 2020 (UTC)[]
Good. Please note that I was not accusing you of creating these accounts. --Green Giant (talk) 08:41, 11 April 2020 (UTC)[]

Global block/unblock for Edit

Status:    In progress

@Green Giant:, hi. I still can't understand why I'm blocked again... Are you kidding? I'm sorry if it's not, but I entered Russian Wikipedia a few minutes ago just to edit my Sandbox and I see:

Start of block: 19:00, 9 april 2020
Expiry of block: 19:00, 9 july 2020

I can't realise what is the reason, because now due to distant education I'm very busy and rarely spending my time here in Wiki... The indicated reason is spam... lol. Please, @Green Giant:, help me... Reylanno (talk) 08:31, 6 May 2020 (UTC)[]

  • @Ahmad252:, you're one of the administrators... Please, can you help me? It's mistake. Reylanno (talk) 07:23, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
    I'm not an administrator, but you normally should be able to edit. Both the blocks (the local block here, and the global block) are only for anonymous users. On which project(s) do you have problems editing? Ahmadtalk 07:27, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
    @Ahmad252:, In Russian Wikipedia. I can't edit even If I'm not anonymous. Here's next text:

The block was made by Green Giant (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Cross-wiki spam: spambot.
Start of block: 19:00, 9 april 2020
Expiry of block: 19:00, 9 july 2020
Your current IP address is 5.3.218.172 and the blocked range is 5.3.192.0/18. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

-Reylanno (talk) 07:31, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]

Reylanno, why don't you request a global IP block exemption at SRGP? If you do that, the global block doesn't affect you. Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker (talk) 07:34, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
@Nieuwsgierige Gebruiker: no access to do this, I'm blocked. Reylanno (talk) 07:48, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
According to the error message, the problem is with the global block of Special:Contribs/5.3.192.0/18 (another range). I think you should ask stewards to double check the block and see if registered users can be excluded. Alternatively, you can request for a global IPBE right at SRIPBE, if this is likely to happen again. Ahmadtalk 07:37, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
I don't understand anything of what you wrote, honestly... Reylanno (talk) 07:41, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
And I can't ask them on Steward requests/Global permissions because I'm blocked, @Ahmad252:. Reylanno (talk) 07:44, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
I guess I'm a complicator :) Basically, you don't need to be concerned about 5.164.221.127, because your problem isn't related to it. You are currently experiencing problems with your new IP address, 5.3.218.172. To solve the problem, you should either ask stewards to do what Green Giant did above, or to grant you the global IPBE right.
Use Special:Contact/Stewards instead. I can make that request for you if you want (please tell me if that's okay with you), but I think making it private is a better idea (privacy issues). Ahmadtalk 07:58, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
@Ahmad252:, I'd be glad if you'll help me with it, because I'm a bit stupid about it. Reylanno (talk) 08:05, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
Don't say that; not being familiar with it is natural at first :). About the request, it's Yes check.svg Done. Ahmadtalk 08:14, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
Thank you very much, dear colleague. Reylanno (talk) 08:33, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]

┌─────────────────────────────────┘
Apologies @Reylanno: I have been offline dealing with work. I have added the global IP block exemption flag to your account. You should not be affected by this block. I am still investigating the spambots in these ranges and hopefully will be able to unblock them soon. --Green Giant (talk) 12:54, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]

Thanks to you, @Green Giant:, and @Ahmad252: for urgent help! Many thanks! Reylanno (talk) 13:30, 7 May 2020 (UTC)[]
