In case you missed itEdit

— regards, Revi 09:36, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

@-revi: Yeah, I've seen it and I've read it. I'll await your final decision. Trijnsteltalk 21:56, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Hi Trijnstel, I've seen that you're a checkuser, steward and sysop. May I ask you a favour? I've made a request in SRCU, but nobody has replied yet, unlike other requests. When you have time, could you please tell me whether there's something wrong in my request or not? It's here. Thank you in advance :-) 16:05, 28 January 2018 (UTC) It was that detail which had to be fixed? Thank you very much :-) 19:50, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Emails arriving?Edit

Hello. I've sent an email to cu-l a couple of days ago. Can you see if it got delivered or ended in some spam folder of yours? I suspect some of my messages don't arrive to inboxes depending on the IP I use. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:40, 7 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi MarcoAurelio. I received an email from you to that list on Sunday, but didn't have time to answer yet. I assume you mean this one? Trijnsteltalk 20:35, 7 February 2018 (UTC)
If it is [meta-wiki] R(...) then that's it. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:49, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

You've got mailEdit

--Alaa :)..! 13:20, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Replied. Please take a look. Trijnsteltalk 14:42, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Unblock requestEdit

Caught by a colocation web host block but this host or IP is not a web host. Place any further information here. I regularly use a VPN at work, but even when I disconnect from it and revert to my local server I am now not able to edit even my own page. Is there a way to unblock me? Zozoulia (talk) 09:19, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

@Zozoulia: Can you please tell me which IP address you use and/or place the exact block message below? Thanks. Trijnsteltalk 11:08, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

Publicatie onder voorwaardeEdit

Dag mevrouw, Kan ik bij u terecht voor een klacht in verband met een publicatie op Wiki onder voorwaarde? MvG--Robvandenberghe (talk) 18:29, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

@Robvandenberghe: Ik weet niet waar het over gaat, maar ik denk dat het verstandiger is om een mail te sturen naar het OTRS-team via nl:Speciaal:Contactpagina. Uiteraard mag u hier ook vertellen wat er volgens u mis is, al moet u wel weten dat ik geen helpdesk/informatiebalie ben... Met vriendelijke groet, Trijnsteltalk 18:39, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Bedankt. Doe ik.--Robvandenberghe (talk) 19:51, 31 May 2018 (UTC)

Changing my user nameEdit

Hello could you help me? I would like to change my username. Guy lemal (talk) 11:15, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

@Guy lemal: Please fill in the form on Special:GlobalRenameRequest and wait until your request is processed. Trijnsteltalk 11:49, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

Another LTAEdit

Would you mind globally locking I'm no stranger to AIV (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser), who is the same as Tony's Ballioni Pony (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser) and Vikepedians abuse cjeckuzer (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date (alt) • CA • ST • lwcheckuser) which you also globally locked. Thanks. 22:30, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

  Done, though there is a reason why SRG is semi protected. I prefer to work with logged in users, not anons. Trijnsteltalk 22:51, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

2a00:1838:aaaa:2037:7285:c2ff:fe25:bc62 blockingEdit

Hi. 2a00:1838:aaaa:2037:7285:c2ff:fe25:bc62 is my address and it has not open proxy. Unblock please. Kristian Larsen (talk) 16:14, 4 June 2018 (UTC)

@Kristian Larsen: This IP address is part of a larger /32 range which is full of open proxies. It is not possible to unblock a single IP address in a range. I can, however, give you a global IP block exempt so that you won't be affected by the global block while logged in (& have done so too). That should be enough for now. Should you also be affected by a local block, then you could request a local IP block exempt. In case you still have questions, please come back to me. With regards, Trijnsteltalk 20:56, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
Ok. Thanks. Kristian Larsen (talk) 18:27, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

account hernoemdEdit

Beste Trijnstel, Mijn gebruikersnaam is hernoemnd, was WebmasterArena is nu WalterA71m hoe ga ik nu verder?

met dank, 21:48, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

  Done, ik heb uw account gedeblokkeerd. U moet wel weten dat zelfpromotie wordt afgeraden, dus probeer daar verre van te blijven en niet over onderwerpen te schrijven waar u nauw bij betrokken bent (laat dat aan anderen over). En mocht u nog vragen hebben, stel ze gerust aan me. Happy editing. Trijnsteltalk 22:08, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

account blockedEdit

Hello! I just found that I was blocked for "long term abuse." I'm unsure what I did. If you could, please let me know what I did wrong. Thank you! (also my IP is 2600:387:3:801::64.) Sbbarker19 (talk) 04:01, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

@Sbbarker19: I see you were affected by a global IP block, not meant for you. I've given you a temporarily IP block exempt until 14 October. Should you need it afterwards again, please come back to me. Happy editing. With regards, Trijnsteltalk 21:15, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

Being a sysop on en.wikibooks, I've been directed here to ask you for access to the #wikimedia-admin channel. I would appreciate if I could have access to the channel (name:Leaderboard). Thanks. Leaderboard (talk) 12:07, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

a friend is locked out until next yearEdit


Got a friend who is IP barred until Feb 2019, she posted an image with her IP address clearly visible and is probably not the person behind the cross wiki vandalism

Do you have an dummies guide to IP blocks ?

I gave her this link

Nikita Jane I dunno how 😭

Nikita Jane Keep going round in circles

edit: the link to her fb profile was classified as spam, she does not have a wiki account —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Steveliddle (talk) 10:23, 15 September 2018‎

@Steveliddle: Please ask your friend to send an email to stewards, and include the full block message (including IP address). Then we can investigate it further. Thank you. Trijnsteltalk 16:10, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi TrijnstelEdit

I just saw your comment "finally done" in the log and i want to reminder that may be you are wrong. See ,BTW there's more things coming. Bye ^^ —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 17:46, 23 September 2018‎

Thank you. I knew we weren't done yet, but didn't see this. I'll look at it. Trijnsteltalk 17:52, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Emergency in KaWikiEdit

Dear steward,
Please read my explanation thoroughly. It is about an inexorable situation in the Georgian Wikipedia, the long-established. Every attempt to solve the problem locally fails again and again. So, please, do not be indifferent.
The requests are extraordinary, so I do not write on a general page, but personally.
Best regards, Deu. 18:10, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Reply to your messageEdit

I will do it tomorrow :) — regards, Revi 01:10, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

Great. Thank you. Trijnsteltalk 10:11, 20 October 2018 (UTC)

A kitten for you!Edit

You had also found scrutineers for fawiki's last year elections: Special:Diff/17309610. This shows your sense of responsibility and of course your kindness. Much appreciated.

4nn1l2 (talk) 19:19, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

  • Awwww, that is nice. Thank you. Trijnsteltalk 19:23, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Range blockEdit

I am a longtime editor caught by your rangeblock. I suspect many other innocent users might also be blocked - see Please help. (Also, if you click on the wikilinked word "request", you just get to a 2005 version of the article Clue (film) on en.wikipedia.) Station1 (talk) 01:00, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Here is the message I get when attempting to edit:

Editing from your IP address range (2607:FB90:5400:0:0:0:0:0/40) has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 16:23, 27 November 2018 by Trijnstel ( for the following reason: Cross-wiki vandalism: per request - if you're affected by this block, please email

This block began on 16:23, 27 October 2018

You can contact Trijnstel to discuss the block and you may make unblock requests or file appeals at meta:Steward requests/Global. Your current IP address is 2607:fb90:54a9:211e:b81e:3f03:4e3e:7175. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

@Station1: Thank you for your message. I've changed the block to anon-only so that should solve the problem for you. Trijnsteltalk 21:20, 5 November 2018 (UTC)

New GS- other stuffEdit

Hello, I pinged you in SRGP for other stuff --Alaa :)..! 19:15, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, Alaa. I didn't receive your ping. But now   Done - let's await the reply. Trijnsteltalk 19:18, 11 November 2018 (UTC)
And subscription is done. Trijnsteltalk 20:27, 11 November 2018 (UTC)


Hi. I see that this range is still problematic here through abusefilters and local log/spamblacklist. If is still problematic and blockable globally, I think it worth considering. (As it is too hard to search the old global block list, providing quick link here for review of past blocks Special:globalBlock/  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:09, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Thank you, definitely. I've re-blocked the range globally for three years as well. Trijnsteltalk 10:10, 16 November 2018 (UTC)

Central notice adminshipEdit

Hi! For security reasons, the Foundation decided to remove the rights related to Central Notice adminship from regular Meta admins, so that only the special group "central notice administrators" still has them. Since you made CN-related actions in the last 12 months, WMF requested us Meta bureaucrats to add you to do this group, in order not to disturb your workflow. The announcement can be found here. Best regards --MF-W 10:42, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

Okay. Thank you very much. Trijnsteltalk 13:04, 17 November 2018 (UTC)


Hi, you seem to have blocked my IP Address on Wikipedia for someone elses mistake and i have reached out to support who created this profile for me but the same login does not work for Wikipedia, only Wikimedia and I need to have an account on Wikipedia. i have explained this is my first time using Wikipedia and I was very shocked to be blocked until next year for the below reason when i have done nothing wrong? Please can i be unblocked to create an account on Wikipedia??

Cross-wiki vandalism, changed to anon-only due to collateral This block began on 09:38, 31 August 2018

My Username is Strickland278 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Strickland278 (talk) 22:33, 3 November 2018‎

@Strickland278: As you've replied with your account, you seem to already have created an account. When logged in, you should have no problem when editing. I can't change the block any more, as I've already reduced it to anon-only and I don't wish to have it unblocked. Please come back to me if you still experience problems. Trijnsteltalk 21:24, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: this account was created for me by Wikimedia Stewards but I receive your error message when trying to create an account on Wikipedia itself and this same account does not work for wikipedia. you have blocked my access from IP address when trying to create an account myself so is impossible —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Strickland278 (talk) 18:43, 7 November 2018‎
Hmm, that's strange as this block is anon-only, so you should be able to autocreate your account. Did you do it correctly? You should first on this wiki (meta) and then directly go to - you should be automatically be logged in there. You don't need to create it manually overthere. Please let me know if this works. If not, then I'll ask my colleagues to help you as you already have a global IP block exempt (strike that). With kind regards, Trijnsteltalk 19:16, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
@Trijnstel: Sadly, it doesn't let me. It asks me to login (even when still logged into wikimedia) and gives this error: Auto-creation of a local account failed: Account creation from IP addresses in the range, which includes your IP address (, has been blocked by NinjaRobotPirate.

The reason given by NinjaRobotPirate is

Editing by unregistered users from your shared IP address or address range may be currently disabled due to abuse. However, you are still able to edit if you sign in with an account. If you are currently blocked from creating an account, you may use this form to request a username. Please use an email address issued to you by your ISP, school or organization so that we may verify that you are a legitimate user on this network. Please reference this block in the comment section of the form.

Please check on this list that the username you choose has not already been taken. We apologize for any inconvenience.

@Strickland278 and NinjaRobotPirate: That's due to a local block, not a global one. Please request an unblock/exempt via UTRS. Trijnsteltalk 23:16, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
I'm not entirely sure what the process is to get around these kinds of issues, but UTRS might work. If not, ACC. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 00:05, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
@Trijnstel and NinjaRobotPirate:i'm not sure what that is NinjaRobotPirate, as I'm trying to be a new Wikipedia user, is this something you'd be able to fix for me? I dont know what those terms are. Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Strickland278 (talk) 13:01, 14 November 2018‎
@Strickland278: Go to and follow the instructions. Tell them you'd like to have a local IP block exempt. Trijnsteltalk 18:45, 14 November 2018 (UTC)
Since there isn't an account on enwiki, IPBE cannot be granted. The options are to modify NinjaRobotPirate's block to allow account creation or have someone else create an account for them (e.g. ACC). UTRS has referred the user to ACC. Given that I don't know the LTA the blocks are targeting, I've deferred the request (with the others on the range) to the CUs there. — JJMC89(T·C) 19:18, 17 November 2018 (UTC)
Since a global account already exists, ACC can't create a duplicate one on the local wiki. We'd need a way to force local creation for an existing global account, for which I've suggested several methods in phab:T211215. — AfroThundr (u · t · c) 17:45, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
