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, ping the steward who globally blocked the IP address using the code {{ping|USERNAME}} so that they are notified about 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 contact the stewards using this form or sending a direct email to stewards(at)wikimedia.org.

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

Requests for global (un)block

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 [[Special:Contributions/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 https://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

Global block for 72.68.3.88/22

Status:    In progress

There is currently a global block on 72.68.3.0/24 to prevent disruption from en:WP:LTA/GF36, but this range is ineffective. Can it be changed to the above range? Thanks. Home Lander (talk) 19:41, 11 August 2018 (UTC)

Global block for Malaysian IPs

Status:    In progress

Cross-wiki vandalism, mainly about Japanese drama, especially about "City Hunter". These IPs creat cross-wiki fake articles, ja:シティーハンター (テレビドラマ), ja:シティーハンター (2018年のテレビドラマ), ja:シティーハンター -XYZ- and zh:城市獵人 (日本電視劇). I find false edits in ja, en, zh, ko, it, and zh-min-nan. (See en:Template:Nippon TV Do'yō Dorama and same templates in ja, zh, ko, it, and zh-min-nan:Ji̍t-pún Tiān-sī-tâi Pài-la̍k Drama.) In jawp, these IPs also impersonate another user with false Signatures (115.134.20.123, 175.141.223.224, 175.144.86.91). I have already request a range block in jawp (ja:Wikipedia:投稿ブロック依頼/マレーシアIP広域) and report to zhwp (zh:维基百科讨论:Guestbook for non-Chinese speakers#False edits by Malaysian IPs). This problem is too large and I need help to determine the appropriate range for global block.--SilverSpeech (talk) 03:13, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

Persistent cross-wiki link spamming. Please Globally Block this IP for at least 3-6 months. LightandDark2000 (talk) 18:45, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

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

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.
  • If you are globally locked, you should appeal your lock to stewards@wikimedia.org.
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 one of the codes below to the bottom of this section and explain why the account(s) should be locked/unlocked.
=== Global lock/unlock for [[User:Foo|Foo]] ===

Global lock for socks of Avoided (or an impostor)

Status:    In progress

From today:

Please lock his socks, check the underlying IPs and block IPs and (if found) as well additional accounts. A block for found IP ranges should be considered. If blocked locally, but not locked globally, it could end like this. Avoided (and his impostors) are located in Germany and Austria, IP adresses found from other than these countries are probably open proxies and should be blocked for 1 year.
