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]] ===

* {{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 Spambot IP 2405:204:140F:3424:0:0:0:0/64

Status:    Not done

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

I found another IP that was behaviorally identical to the first set. The spamming activity on en.wiki can be seen here. LightandDark2000 (talk) 18:52, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Too much collateral on the IPV4 range. Can you give an example of spam from the IPV6 range? I can't find any. – Ajraddatz (talk) 20:06, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

Global block for 78.14.138.0/22

Status:    Not done

Persistent link-spamming and vandalism within the last several months. (See here for example.) Most of the recent abuse is on the /24 range, but the abuse also extends to the wider /22 range as well. 🌀 LightandDark2000 (talk) 19:25, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Then, why there is no local blocks? --Alaa :)..! 07:25, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
There was a local block on the most recently-abused IPs, but the local block(s) expired a few days after I had made this request. 🌀 LightandDark2000 (talk) 08:16, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Global block for 99.203.28.117 and 2600:1:950F:CCA2:0:0:0:0/64

Status:    Not done

See Meta:Requests_for_help_from_a_sysop_or_bureaucrat/Archives/2018-09#Block_needed_for_range. The same troll is starting up again (this time as en:Special:Contributions/99.203.28.117) with registering accounts on different language Wikipedias and leaving threats and other such harassment (see de:Spezial:Beiträge/Loewehugs). I don't know if it's possible to include exceptions in globally locking talk pages or something, but if so, maybe it'd be easier to just semi-protect any talk page addressed to me on any project that isn't in English or Simple English (the only two languages I can really communicate in)? --Ian.thomson (talk) 01:04, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

Global block 77.179.111.244

Status:    Not done

The globally blocked user likely blocked as IP Special:Contributions/77.180.8.47 has now started to use dewiki to ask users to edit wikidata on their behalf when their edits at Wikidata directly get reverted. Despite having been asked to seek deblock prior to new edits, the user hasn't done so and keeps reverting edits. --Jura1 (talk) 17:35, 15 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi there. Since the IP is an Open Proxy, your best course of action would be to pursue a Global IP Block exemption, because Wikimedia has a policy against allowing Open Proxies and some VPN networks. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 23:16, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
@LightandDark2000 Hi, thanks for the reply. I was testing the ip, it's not a open proxy. All device in my wifi network getting the same public ip. I think the guide line for checking proxy was not followed correctly. Please solve the issue.

Thank you.--Ra1han (talk) 10:10, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

Thank You--Ra1han (talk) 04:16, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Can any one confirm me how [open proxies] Policy is applicable for blocking 103.217.104.18 as in [info] you can see this ip is static ip from my isp as you can see that

   Services:	None detected
   Assignment:	Static IP

As per the policy ,

   Publicly available proxies (including paid proxies) may be blocked for any period at any time.

As you can see this ip was assigned static and not a open proxy. How the blocking rules apply in this case?

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 unlock for Ezekiel53746

Status:    On hold

Please see my current account's talk page here and WP:AN request here. In short, I want to appeal the block on the account at en~wiki and clear the mess I've made with it and other accounts. I feel bad that I still kept evading Ezekiel53746's block, let alone wasn't caught for it for years. I want to actually solve it. I was told that appeals will only be heard by the main account, but there's nothing I can do about that unless Ezekiel53746 is unlocked. Zeke Essiestudy (talk) 04:59, 2 September 2018 (UTC)

Alex Shih did not provide any reviewable evidence, which is required by the policy, in fact did not proveide any evidence at all. When I asked him, he refuse to answer. Clear violation to en:WP:EXPLAINBLOCK. Alex used block to answer. Alex still deny the fact that I only edit once (at the main namespace), and my editing is an ondinary one. Why editing once constitutes a block? Alex still refuses to provide evidence when asked, and still refuses to answer.--Fauzty (talk) 15:45, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Alex still refused to answer the question I asked in [38]. I asked it in August. He still refuses to answer to this day. Alex's description of the status of the sandbox seems very far from what it was. For the most part, what Alex said is contrary to the fact. Alex still deny the fact that THERE ARE academic papers. Denial is the first sign.--Fauzty (talk) 15:59, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
Blocking someone asking you questions is itself a violation to the en:WP:blocking policy. Blocking the very someone who is asking you equals to "DID NOT ANSWER", equals to "REFUSE TO EXPLAIN". An admin who refusing to explain is an admin violating the policy of en:WP:blocking policy. --Fauzty (talk) 16:07, 18 September 2018 (UTC)
This is very serious to cross-wiki abuse(vandalism,personal attacks and disruptive editing),and violate en:wikipedia:User_pages#What_may_I_not_have_in_my_user_pages? long time after this user have been indefinite in zh.wiki and en.wiki,Support Support global lock,and I hope meta stewards can check this user edit,because this is very serious to cross-wiki abuse(vandalism,personal attacks and disruptive editing),also,this user most edit is only personal attacks and disruptive editing.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 08:23, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
And Alex Shih blocked Fauzty before,Alex Shih already said:Fauzty, do not be disingenuous. Only one short section of the main sandbox is about what you are referring to, and sandbox 2 and 3 are all collections of evidences. If you intentionally deny the obvious again, you will be swiftly blocked for disruptive editing as there is no tolerance for this behaviour on the English Wikipedia[39],but this user completed[40][41][42][43][44],and Alex Shih will block Fauzty,so this user said is not completed face,and another admin same said:Since you say this is not a language issue, I have to conclude you're being deliberately disingenuous by ignoring others arguments and the content of your own sandboxes. There may be some academic papers there, but there's also lots of content that isn't relevant to any academic papers, government systems, or the English Wikipedia. Alex Shih warned you about denying the obvious; you continued[45],but this user only in order to disrupt Wikipedia to illustrate a point,and cross-wiki abuse(vandalism,personal attacks and disruptive editing) in there after this user have been indefinite in zh.wiki[46][47] and en.wiki[48][49],and some conduct similar to zh.wiki[50][51][52],also,this user only filled up with a series of vidence of misconduct against various editors/administrators in the sandbox on this user.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 08:38, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Support making the lock on Fauzty global and a steward lock. The editor appears to be using the English Wikipedia to argue about an issue on the Chinese Wikipedia, and that is a cross-encyclopedic issue, and the editor might go to another Wikipedia if not blocked. The oppose request by the editor, like all of the posts to his talk page, is a wall of text. Robert McClenon (talk) 00:03, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
Well, it seems I declined the last lock request, so I won't handle this. That said, I can't find anything outside of enwiki and zhwiki and the user is already blocked on both wikis, so a lock isn't needed, unless some evidence is shown about some on going cross-wiki abuse. Matiia (talk) 17:53, 22 Sember 2018 (UTC)
Matiia,but the problem to this user what matters is that this user are using there as a space to circumvent your blocks on the Chinese Wikipedia and English Wikipedia and to continue disputes that originate there.--MCC214Talk with me#Contributions with me 11:22, 26 September 2018 (UTC)

In more than 12 years I've never seen him on 64.107.131.0/24 or 66.99.4.0/23 (may be the branches he edits from) - but any shutdown of these ranges would be helpful. They seem to be his primary locations these days. Antandrus (talk) 01:04, 27 September 2018 (UTC)
Followup - please CU 64.107.219.0/24 (Triton College) -- while he was there yesterday evening he probably made some sleepers. I just removed a bunch of his spamlinks on fi, sv, tr, sr. Antandrus (talk) 17:24, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
