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

Global block for User:2003:57:e50c:d968:143c:ef4c:ba06:8ed6[edit]

Global vandal. Disembodied Soul (talk) 02:29, 4 December 2016 (UTC)

Global block for User:58.140.235.59[edit]

Status:    In progress
58.140.231.133 #
58.140.228.222 #

218.237.202.76 #
218.237.202.123 #

Reason: global vandalism. IP [58.140.235.59] did acts of vandalism in wikis that have not any admins, so we can't block this IP locally. Thus I request blocking it. I think it's a same person with previous one. Nuevo Paso (talk) 07:11, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Global block for User:195.211.29.234[edit]

Status:    In progress

Global block for 31.184.236.x[edit]

Status:    In progress
Exapmle of IPs

I suggest a global block for 31.184.236.0/24 because has been abused for spam, for example, per test2wiki:Special:Log/spamblacklist, and multiple blocks on multiple wikis. An example of IP globally blocked is 31.184.236.65, is an open proxy and recently reported spam from stopforumspam. Thanks in advanced. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 23:51, 9 December 2016 (UTC).

Global unblock for 23.227.160.0/19[edit]

Status:    Done

Vituzzu blocked a range (23.227.160.0/19) that covers my personal and private proxy 23.227.160.112 (clonca.andreas-borchert.de) which is owned by me since May 2016. I did not notice this for quite some time period as I always work through my account but I got hit by the global block when I tried to interwiki-link a Commons page to a Wikipedia article through a helper. Please note that this is a range of co-located and virtual servers. If there is one bad host (apparently 23.227.179.179 cross-wiki-contribsIP inforobtexgblockglist) it does not appear appropriate to block an entire range as this hits innocent people like me. --AFBorchert (talk) 15:34, 10 December 2016 (UTC)

Seems not to be a single IP that's causing the spam. Savhñ 18:54, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
I have set the block to affect not-logged in users only, you should be able to edit while logged in. The amount of real anonymous users using these kind of services is insignificant if compared to the amount of spam it generates. Legitimate users can contact us (or any other admin) to have an account created for them. Savhñ 19:33, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the reconfiguration of this global block. Interwiki-links through the helper between Commons and other projects appear to work now. Please note that it is not surprising that bad servers exist within a huge range of co-located and virtual servers. I think that it is still better to avoid range blocks whereever possible and to replace them by individual addresses which were actually misused.

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 -->
