This page hosts requests for global (un)blocks, (un)locks and hidings.

If you are here because you have been affected by a global block, please see Global blocks/FAQ for more information about global block and routes to appeal.

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

Cross-wiki requests
Meta-Wiki requests

Requests for global (un)block

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 .
Global blocks don't affect Meta-Wiki, so if your IP address or account is blocked, you can still appeal here. IP addresses or accounts 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.
Please describe the kind of cross wiki abusive activity you see from the IP or account. Saying an IP or account is a long term abuser is not helpful, but saying "IP vandalizes at ban.wikipedia, no.wikipedia and vi.wikipedia" is. This is especially important for range blocks. If you do not provide enough details, your request might be declined.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You know the IP address(es) or accounts 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 or account, if any.

To make a request for the address(es) or account(s) to be blocked or unblocked

Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why the address(es) or account(s) should be blocked/unblocked.
=== Global block/unblock for [[Special:Contributions/Some IP address or account|Some IP address or account]] ===
{{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@wikimedia.org

Long-term abuse. Estrellato (talk) 16:18, 22 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Which LTA is this (asking since I can't tell at first glance)? EPIC (talk) 16:23, 22 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Dunno if they have a name but basically xwiki pro Russian propaganda/vandalism that has showed up quite a few times in recent months. Might be stale now but check for proxy @EPIC Estrellato (talk) 15:04, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Thanks - yep, it's perhaps stale now, but it doesn't appear to be a proxy at least (IP belongs to large local telecom company). EPIC (talk) 15:12, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Alright cool. You can mark as stale. @EPIC Estrellato (talk) 15:14, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
No problem, marking request as withdrawn per above. EPIC (talk) 15:20, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Long-term abuse. Airtransat236 (talk | contribs) 02:31, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

This doesn't look like an LTA to me, seems like regular vandalism? In either case they only edited one wiki and they seemed to have stopped. No steward action needed for now. EPIC (talk) 07:29, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Yes @EPIC: this user seemed to have stopped today, however they have edited globally using accounts or different IP addresses since at least 2022.
Also, they seem to keep repeating the same pattern of vandalism:
"Velociraptor"
First edit (2022)
Latest edit (2024)
Same type of harassment:

Thanks for clarifying. Since it stopped I will wait to see if any further edits come, otherwise, please feel free to re-report. EPIC (talk) 14:31, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Long-term abuse. Ternera (talk) 15:21, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Ternera, not sure if a global block is necessary here. It's only edited simplewiki where I've already blocked the IP. He's gone onto another one already and not likely to return to that one. --Ferien (talk) 15:23, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
Per above I'll keep this open for a while, blocking in case of further edits and otherwise closing. Correctly they usually switch IPs after being blocked on one (and usually doesn't return to an IP after having thrown it away). EPIC (talk) 15:28, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

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

Be sure to follow the instructions below:
  • Your request might be rejected if it 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 VRT queue at stewards-oversight@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-appeals@wikimedia.org.

Please describe abusive activity of an account before reporting them here. Since stewards are often not active at projects the reported accounts are, things that seem obvious to you may not be equally obvious to the reviewing steward.

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 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 -->

Blocked for socking in 3 wikis. Cross-wiki abuse. Pays no attention to local rules. Doesn't communicate. Estrellato (talk) 14:55, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Has started communicating now at least locally in svwiki but still very worrysome history and seems to think their own preferences apply everywhere. Estrellato (talk) 15:02, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply

Hello - unfortunately we can't lock this account in the current state, looking at the CA I also agree that the history is a bit worrying, and there are indeed blocks elsewhere, however, they are still actively editing several wikis (including Commons where they have almost 150,000 edits) with no local block. If there is socking or if they were blocked on Commons I would probably also consider a lock, and with the implementation of global account blocks I think this could be a very good case for that once we establish clear guidelines on when to use them, since local communities (including Commons) can choose to exempt them locally, but for now, I am closing this request as Not done. EPIC (talk) 15:10, 23 July 2024 (UTC)Reply
