WMF Global Ban Policy
“Wikimedia Foundation global bans are applied:
- when users engage in significant harassment of users on multiple projects;
- when users engage in significant harassment off of the Wikimedia sites so as to genuinely threaten (emotionally or physically) users; or
- when the trust or safety of our users or employees is otherwise in danger or has been significantly compromised or threatened.”
For the safety and privacy of users, the projects, and itself, the Wikimedia Foundation refers potential criminal violations to the relevant authorities when appropriate. Also, to protect the privacy of all involved, the Wikimedia Foundation generally will not publicly comment on the reason for any specific banning action.
For further information about Wikimedia Foundation global bans, questions may be left on the discussion page, or sent by email to the Support and Safety team at cawikimedia.org. Please note that questions about specific WMF global bans will not be addressed, to protect the privacy of all involved. Further information on community banned users may be found here.
