Requests and proposals Steward requests (Global) latest archive
This page hosts requests for global (un)blocks, (un)locks and hidings.
  • For global IP block requests, read the guideline and make a request below. Indicate why a global block is necessary and for how long.
  • For account lock requests, read the guideline and post under Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding.

If you are here because you have been blocked by a global block, and believe that the block is in error or you have not done anything wrong, there are a few methods through which you can appeal:

  • If the IP is not currently blocked on Meta, you can post a request to this page following the instructions below to have the IP unblocked.
  • If the IP is currently blocked on Meta, you can post an appeal on your talk page. For maximum effectiveness, link to the username of the steward who globally blocked the IP address using the code [[User:USERNAME|USERNAME]] so that they are pinged by it.
  • If you are editing from an account and have been caught by a global IP block that is unlikely to be removed (i.e. because it is an open proxy or because of long-term abuse), you can request an individual exemption from the block at the requests for global permissions page. Please see the section on global IP block exemptions on that page for specific instructions for making a request.
  • If none of those options work, you are free to email using this form or writing at stewards-at-wikimedia.org.

Note: (un)blocks apply to IP addresses; and (un)locks apply to global accounts

Requests for global (un)block[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions.
Please also review Global blocking. Only IP addresses can be globally blocked at this moment. Please see #Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding if your request involves an account.
Global blocks don't affect Meta-Wiki, so if your IP address is blocked, you can still appeal here. IP addresses that cause disruption on Meta should be reported at Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat instead of here so that they can be blocked locally.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You know the IP address(es) you wish to have globally blocked or unblocked.
  2. For blocks, the global blocking criteria are met.
  3. For unblocks, your request addresses the original reason for blocking the IP, if any.

To make a request for an account to be locked or unlocked

Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why the address(es) should be blocked/unblocked.
=== Global block/unblock for [[User:Some IP address|Some IP address]] ===
{{status}} <!-- do not remove this template -->
*{{luxotool|IP address}}
Description, evidence, diffs, etc. --~~~~
When requesting that your IP be unblocked, note that stewards need to know your IP address to even consider a request.
To find your IP, please visit http://www.whatismyip.com/
You are not required to disclose your IP in public - you may make requests privately to any steward on IRC or by email at: stewards-at-wikimedia.org

Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg Note that 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 #wikimedia-stewardsconnect or email your request to the stewards OTRS queue at stewards-at-wikimedia.org (direct wiki interface) but do not post it here. Thanks.
  • Warning! This is not the place to ask for locks based on your opinion that someone is disruptive. Global locks are used exclusively against vandalism and spam, not because of content disputes, not because you think that someone deserves to be globally blocked. In such cases, you should ask for local blocks at appropriate places.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting that a global account be (un)locked, please be sure that:

  1. You have evidence of cross-wiki disruption from the account(s).
  2. You can show that it is not feasible to use local-only blocks or other measures like page protection to combat the disruption.
  3. You have considered making the request in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect, especially for account names which will be hidden, or for urgent requests.
To make a request for an account to be locked or unlocked
Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why the account(s) should be locked/unlocked.
=== Global lock/unlock for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===
{{status}} <!-- do not remove this template -->
*{{LockHide|username}}
*{{LockHide|username|hidename=1}} <!-- if you do not want the name to be visible on this page -->

Global lock for Lowlihao's sockpuppet[edit]

Status:    Done

Global lock for Ksymil[edit]

Status:    Done

I want my account to be (b)locked for ever on all Wikimedia Projects, as soon as possible. Please, do not wait with this 24 hours or any other period, just do it. I despise myself for ever creating an account here, and I cannot express my regret that it cannot be deleted altogether.. --Ksymil (talk) 13:25, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

I repeat my request. Ksymil (talk) 14:42, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Self lock requests are not allowed.--GZWDer (talk) 15:17, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
GZWDer, does it mean that I have to do it the hard way? I can vandalise several articles in several projects and get blocked then, but is it really necessary? I would prefer to do it peacefully, without annoying innocent people just to achieve it. Please, do not force me. It is really not difficult for me, but will cause trouble and extra work for people working there. Ksymil (talk) 15:33, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Please do not disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point.--GZWDer (talk) 15:35, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
I will. I will have to, if you do not block my account. I know how to do this, and only other people will be sorry for this, I will achieve my goal anyway. Ksymil (talk) 15:38, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Just stop editing, I don't thing that you need a lock. Otherwise you can request local blocks at the most wikis. Greetings, Luke081515 15:36, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
This is not what I want. Ksymil (talk) 15:38, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Remove your email from your preferences and then change your login details with a bunch of random characters that you won't remember at all if you never want to edit again. Tropicalkitty (talk) 15:47, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
I am absolutely NOT interested in other solutions, so please spare yourselves the trouble. I will just need to spend half an hour on several projects to get what I want, if you really want it this way. The result will be exatly the same, only the method will be different. Ksymil (talk) 15:53, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Taking into account past precedents, I'd be willing to lock the account provided that the user understands that there is no way back, ever; that lock means lock and no unlock request will be ever granted. And further, that the user agrees not to contribute anylonger to the projects with any new user account or as anonymous user. —MarcoAurelio 15:54, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

I want to be blocked for edits on all projects. But if this can be achieved only by making me unable to log in on my account, then this is also fine with me. Ksymil (talk) 16:03, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done - This is a bit silly, but we won't force anyone to vandalize to get his account locked, moreover when some projects allows account blocks "on user request". —MarcoAurelio 16:10, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Global lock for Szm120[edit]

Global lock for JohnLloydScharf (2nd time)[edit]

Status:    Not done

This account has made a lot of attack comments and one image, all aimed against Muslims. Please lock this account.--172.56.3.38 18:00, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment Comment I think locking this account is controversial, since this user is a long-term user. An indef block on enwiki and commonswiki is enough I think. If this disruption spreads to other wikis, I suggest to open a global ban request instead of a global lock. --Pokéfan95 (talk) 00:44, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done. Not needed for now. It's not a cross-wiki issue. RadiX 04:30, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

Global lock for LilaTretikov (WMF)[edit]

Status:    Not done

No longer useful account.--GZWDer (talk) 16:25, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

I think the WMF locks accounts in their own, if there are no longer needed? Cheers, Luke081515 16:27, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that's why WMF Office IT permissions were created. They'll take care of their own staff accounts. Thanks for your understanding, —MarcoAurelio 16:29, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
