Global unblock for 50.16.230.151

Status:    complete

This is the IP address of my AWS EC2 instance. I use this server as the endpoint of a SOCKS5-over-SSH tunnel to encrypt network traffic when using public wifi networks It is an AWS elastic IP assigned to my account, but is being caught up in the general AWS block: "Cross-wiki spam: Amazon Web Services - Service has been used for trojan/spam attacks - Little or no good edits." Also e-mailing info@wikimedia.org, per instructions on block message. --DataGazetteer (talk) 20:12, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

I can grant you an IP block exemption on EnWiki, where you mainly edit. Ruslik (talk) 05:24, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, please -- that would be great. Thank you. 50.16.230.151 11:25, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
If you have a global account, we could grant it an IP exemption. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:30, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
I just followed the appropriate link to activate my SUL across all of the wikimedia projects. DataGazetteer (talk) 11:41, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
Thank you -- much appreciated. The preceding unsigned comment was added by DataGazetteer (talk • contribs) 12:21, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

Global block for 202.45.119.16, 222.187.222.23 and 46.21.144.52

Status:    Done

Global block for 160.103.2.236

Global block/ for 5.178.64.67

Status:    Done

Cross-Wiki abuse, vandalism. --Kolega2357 (talk) 20:41, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, open proxy--Shizhao (talk) 06:03, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Global unblock for 84.25.0.0/16

Status:    Done

Trigger: OTRS 2012120310012749. Further investigation:

  • Reason for global block: only one IP 84.25.68.107 cross-wiki-contribs ST IP info WHOIS robtexgblockglist
  • Properties of range: In use by large ISP in NL for customer internet connections. Range is semi-static (though RevDNS wrongly may suggest it's dynamic). The x.x.x.107 appears in my proxy database, added 23-11-2012 as a webproxy. Further digging in my database learned me that this IP is still a webproxy, most likely run by a private person.
  • To globally block an entire /16 range for this, imho is a bit over the top. - RonaldB (talk) 23:22, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
    • Yes check.svg Unblocked after reading this, the OTRS ticket and an email of another person. If the vandal continues we'd better block that single IP. Trijnsteltalk 20:44, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Global unblock for 108.61.47.139

Status:    In progress

This IP address is not an open proxy. It belongs to the paid VPN service Private Internet Access. I use this VPN regularly on public wifi networks to encrypt my network traffic. --Stephen Gilbert (talk) 03:52, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Global block for 134.3.174.203

Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding

Symbol comment vote.svg <translate>

Note that [[<tvar|gb>global blocks and locks#Global IP blocks</>|global blocking]] currently only applies to IPs, due to a technical limitation. If you wish to request a named account for global [un]locking, please request a global [un]lock here instead. Be sure to follow the instructions below:

  • Your request might be rejected if your request doesn't include the necessary information.
  • Warning! This page is publicly viewable. If the account name is grossly insulting or contains personal information please contact a steward privately in <tvar

Global unblock for BilCat

Status:    In progress

I primarily edit on EN:WP, and have encountered global blocks when I edit though Amazon's Web service. I asked an admin on ENWP (privately) to unblock me from ENWP, but he said that I should ask a steward. I rarely edit cross-wiki from Amazon's service, but I may do so if the need arises. - BilCat (talk) 03:19, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

I'm no steward, but I suggest you consider requesting Global IP block exemption on SRGP. Technical note: you're asking for a global unblock, not a global unlock: locks are for accounts, global blocks are for IPs. πr2 (tc) 03:23, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
Then I'm totally confused :) Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 03:28, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
I've asked there now. This can be removed/archived. Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 03:41, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Global lock for Translation Notification Bot

Status:    Done
  • Translation Notification Bot (talk • contribs • block • x-wiki • CA • lwcheckuser)
  • Some changes in the job queue, unrelated to the Translation Notification extension, broke it: bugzilla:42715. Translation administrators shouldn't use the feature before the bug is fixed, but a temporary lock may help: it won't stop emails, but perhaps it will stop edits on other wikis. (No dev is working on fixing the job queue, so we need a workaround.) Thanks, Nemo 10:20, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
