Round 2 Re-submission of proposalEdit

Hi there Ruslik,

I have decided to reapply for the Round 2 of the 2016 Project Grant applications.

I selected to create a new proposal, and it seemed to simply overlay the new information on the old application page, therefore leaving my updates and revisions on the Round 2 version attached to the "Past Proposals" link to the application.

Do you know how I would get this updated version bumped into the "Current Proposal" sections?

Block IPEdit


I have just logged into my account after moving to Israel and have discovered my entire IP range has been blocked. This seems somewhat excessive?

"Your current IP address is, and the blocked range is Please include all above details in any queries you make."

--Urbanplay (talk) 17:29, 16 June 2018 (UTC) This happened to me as well. Maybe this is due to the fact that I use an USB-stick for my internet access. Please unblock this IP asap because I have not misused Wiki in any way. The error message was: "Deine aktuelle IP-Adresse ist und der gesperrte Bereich ist Bitte beziehe alle obigen Einzelheiten in all deinen Anfragen ein."

-- Must ask you 'cause I can't understand why you blocked my IP Hope you answer to me. good day!


I am user en:User:Boiagiallo-edits: I made several edits in and, but unlogged IP, during April 2013 for to improve and to start several articles regarding Italian food and related articles. I used a computer in a public location en:User talk: obvious that computer, and related IP, was in charing use with other users, but an Italian admin globally locked my account [Boiagiallo], wich is used by me alone. I leave a post in Italian discussion of admin, but he ignored me. Admin was looking for other editors, who edit in articles regarding history and sports, but those users are not my friends and I don't know them! If you global unlock [Boiagiallo], I can continue to improve many articles in many languages: articles regarding Italian food and related articles! I made request here. Now I can not log in: my actual and dinamic IP is


Another sock of INeverCry. Creates an account and immediately starts deletion requests like other socks.


Everyone... Let me talk...

It all started in 2014/2015 (I think) when I created a Wikipedia account. I was exaggerating the sizes of UY Scuti at the time. I now know that UY Scuti is only 1,708 ± 192 solar radii.

I came back in June 2017. I wanted to help make useful contributions to the encyclopedia. Everything turned out well for the first 2-3 months. However, things changed. Some users started to argue against me, especially when it came to star sizes.

Then, when I tried to introduce more information, the other users didn't like it and started to want to get me blocked. They succeeded. Why would they pick on me? Yes, why me? Why are they always saying that everyone else is right (not in the case of wikipedia:WP:TRUTH, but in encyclopedic contribution terms) and I am wrong?

But things took a turn for the worse. My archnemesis, Sasha Primerov, started insulting me on . He got both of us blocked indefinitely as a result. My niece, friend, and archnemesis made their own Wikipedia accounts on my computer without my consent. My niece was making disruptive edits to wikipedia:List of largest stars, my friend was editing in bible verses even though it is vandalism, and my archnemesis was making personal attacks. All of our accounts got involved in a sockpuppet investigation and all of them were banned, and my account was globally locked. All of this is the truth.


Please, in 4 months, let me come back. Please unlock my account and inform an administrator to unblock me. Not now, but in 4 to 5 months, to complete the wikipedia:Wikipedia:Standard offer.

My only intention was to help build an encyclopedia. I really don't want to be globally locked. After all, Wikipedia is «the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.»

I don't hate the people who think that I am wrong and that I should be blocked. I actually like all of you, guys. Just please let me contribute to the encyclopedia.

Please, I promise to never let anyone make a Wikipedia account on my computer again. I also promise that I will avoid the behavior that got me blocked at all times and make useful contributions.

Please, give me a second chance. I am just a teenager living in wikipedia:Russia, and I want to make Wikipedia more reliable than it is today.

I am very sorry for the incidents and thank you very much, in advance.

Reason for IP blocking?Edit

Hello, Ruslik,

I've been informed, that my IP address ( from the blocked range is currently blocked by you since 20.07.18. May you detalize, what is meant by "Long-term abuse" in my case? Is this a problem of my mobile internet operator - and if so, may it be resolved in some more sophisticated way?

Here is the quotation (in my native language (UKR)):

Pleas unlock IPEdit

Dear Rusliko, I tried to create an account to contribute to Wikipedia, but I got the reply that my IP adress is blocked, since it is part of the IP-range, due to long-term abuse. Since I have never worked with Wikipedia before, this seems to be a fault. Could you please unlock my IP? With many thanks in advance and best regards, Sebastian

IP blockedEdit

Dear Sir/Madam, you have blocked my IP address range (, marked "your current IP address is" for "Long-term abuse" Would you please tell me what seems to be the problem here? I am not aware of any "abuse", I am doing proper historical research, I cite all sources. I spent quite some in libraries to find out about this forgotten general. Now that I am retired, I can afford to do so. Isn't wikipedia supposed to be about extending knowledge?

Yours sincerely,


You can contact Ruslik0 to discuss the block and you may make unblock requests or file appeals at meta:Steward requests/Global.

blocked IP please helpEdit


I do not know why but my IP account has been blocked : Editing from your IP address range ( has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 16:08, 5 November 2019 by Ruslik0 ( for the following reason:

Long-term abuse This block began on 16:08, 5 November 2018

I have no idea at all about this - I have only edited Wikipedia once maybe ten years ago and I doubt it was from this IP. I had to make an account to try to sort this out. can you help?

Cross-wiki LTAEdit

@Ruslik0: I found one more sleeper (the contributions obviously indicate that it's him). Can you please lock the account and also Globally / Locally Rangeblock the IPs for at least 6-12 months (specifically, an "anon-only" block to prevent collateral)? This LTA immediately resumed cross-wiki abuse 2 days after the last 6-month Global/Local Rangeblock expired (on the larger /21 range). This LTA's IPs are semi-dynamic, so they change every 2-4 weeks, but are usually restricted to 1 or 2 ranges at a time. At least 90% to 95% of all of his IPs within the last 3 years can be traced back to this range (with the exception of another inactive range), so a rangeblock on this range should effectively keep him from being about to sock until its expiration. Incidentally, this range is currently being abused by at least 1 or 2 other cross-wiki LTAs (active on,, and possibly others), which have resulted in a smaller, separate rangeblock on (, so a Global Block would be able to prevent cross-wiki abuse from ROXELANA22 and the other LTAs on this range. This page on Commons indicates that he has been abusing this range for almost 3 years now, and given the severity of the cross-wiki abuse, I personally believe that account creation and IP editing from anons should be restricted until the abuse winds down. (An "anon-only" block should allow unrelated users on that range to continue editing, and unregistered users should still be able to contact the Stewards for account creation.) Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 22:11, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

In terms of possible collateral, the /22 subnet has a significantly smaller potential collateral than the larger /21 range, and recently, there have been several Rangeblocks enacted that have a significantly larger collateral damage than the range listed above, including 2607:fb90::/32. That range has enormous collateral, and yet, it has been locally rangeblocked up to 3 years, and Globally Rangeblocked multiple times due to the recent abuse. At the same time, the vandalism from the "Dog and rapper vandal" (the main LTA on that range) has never actually reached the severity of ROXELANA22. I can guarantee that within 1 month, if this LTA hasn't been rangeblocked, he will generate another string of cross-wiki socks, as seen last year. Given the abuse from this LTA and other cross-wiki vandals, I believe that it's in the best interest of the Projects for the IPs to be blocked. The IPs also need to be blocked on Meta, because he also socks on this site, as observed in some of the socks from this month. (He has also issued death threats to me and other users, so I'm considered whether or not to notify WMF of the abuse.) LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 22:11, 5 March 2019 (UTC)
  Done Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 6 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. Can you please also extend the "anon-only" block on the /22 range to Meta? These 2 recent accounts, 4NT1 7PS 43 and COOOCOOON, indicate that he is returning to sock on Meta (something he did numerous times last year). The talk page access doesn't have to be revoked yet. Thank you. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 02:25, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Dear Ruslik0,

This user have a habit to take up too much your precious bandwidth. So, I don't know if he just send requests until each steward got exhausted and "good wills" ran out. Then maybe he just moves on to another steward and use up another good wills.

-- 20:18, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

Ruslik (and anyone else reading this), I'm sure you're well aware that the comments from the IP above are basically trolling, specifically by the LTA Arturo Gustavo. As I've already told him, he is still quite clueless about how I run my anti-vandal operations (or even my extensive vandal/LTA research), and obviously, none of what he said above accurately describes what I was trying to accomplish. I could go into more detail explaining why I do stuff the way that I do (and also how I know how to hunt down LTAs and find their recent ranges), but I'd rather not go into more detail on this at the moment. I actually think that Arturo's a bit paranoid (especially towards CUs), though I can't really blame him there, given his socking as an LTA. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 06:59, 8 March 2019 (UTC)
Some explanations sounds like partially legitimate, however some explanations looks like grasping the straws. Arturo has some good working relationships with 2 or 3 en~CheckUsers. The CIDR /24, /23, /22 blocks should dish out conservatively because avoid collateral is best. Only reason to do CIDR blocks is avoid to revealing the Lima Tango Alpha's underlying IP.
Also, L&D2k behavior need to closely monitor because more and more Stewards and now Global Sysops (example: Billinghurst) are impacted negatively due to him. How to regulate his petulances and anti-community behaviors? -- 23:28, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Apparently there's a problem with my IP addressEdit

Hello, I created a new article on the German Wikipedia called de:Sebastian Weyer. Now I wanted to connect the article with its corresponding English and Italian versions. I get an error saying "Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis." And it says you blocked all IPs in the range (including me) until 28 October 2019. What can I do? Could you please connect the different language-versions of those articles? Thank you very much! Judith Sunrise (talk) 20:25, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Nevermind, I tried again from the new article on the German Wikipedia and that worked. Judith Sunrise (talk) 20:26, 9 March 2019 (UTC)

Sock of a globally-locked accountEdit

Hello Ruslik0, first off sorry if I am likely doing this wrong, but I have next to no knowledge about meta's processes and forums. Special:CentralAuth/Rameshmurmu214 is an obvious block-evading sock of Special:CentralAuth/Ramesmurmu214 (without a "h"), whom you locked globally on 23 May. Is it possible to lock this sock account aswell without much bureaucracy? See block notice of the sock at en-Wiki and recent sock editing on Wikidata at this airport page (in history) for evidence. If more formal processing is needed, could you give me a bit of advice about the correct approach and venue please (I know there is a discussion forum somewhere for such issues, but couldn't find it)? Thank you in advance for your time and help. GermanJoe (talk) 11:26, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello RUslik, My IP was blocked this last 25th of April and I would like to know why. Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

There has been long term abuse on the range, so it has been blocked. If you need to edit at a wiki, then it is advised to create an account, and edit through that at the wiki in question.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:06, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Undblock AccountEdit

hi Mr. Ruslik0, I ask you to please unblock the following account globally,, Recently an LTA had been blocked, where he loaded landscape and village paintings, if he noticed the two blocked users, he noticed that both of them did not match the loaded arguments, the user that must remain blocked globally is only this. because mawlew uploads respect the licenses entered with the arguments entered correctly, check the uploads-- 14:55, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
