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

If you are here because you have been blocked 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; 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 the address(es) to be blocked or unblocked

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(dot)org

Global block for Biterika Group

Status:    In progress

Private proxies, already blocked on the English Wikipedia but continue spamming on other wikis:

Kleinpecan (talk) 02:39, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Comment Comment There is definitely evidence of significant ref abuse of the Russo-centric wikis, including the small wikis. I checked 2 x /23 and there may have been good edits, but a whole lot of abuse, and it has been occurring for many months, I would suggest soft blocking ranges, AND notifying the ruWP, ukWP, beWP and plWP communities in case they wish to whitelist any of the ranges.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:53, 22 June 2021 (UTC)
further Comment Comment the rate of this abuse has lessened though it is still occurring. Noting that we have some of the urls better monitored and some now disallowed, so that may account for some of the reduction. I still feel that there can be benefit in blocks as there is no evidence of any good edits being stopped.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:25, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
Comment Comment As a data point, I can confirm that this abuse has taken place on Nynorsk Wikipedia (nn:) Example. --Ranveig (talk) 06:00, 13 July 2021 (UTC)
Comment Comment Biterika is a webhost ([1]) and hundreds of IPs in these ranges are proxies. I didn't check all of them, but of a dozen of random IPs with contributions that I checked, all of them are proxies. Given that the network is non-residential, the high amount of proxies, and the abuse (on- and off-wiki) coming from these proxies, at least a soft-block for all ranges should be non-controversial. MarioGom (talk) 18:48, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
Activity has somewhat decreased because a few wikis have already blocked some or all IPs, but they continue to spam (e.g. [2]). I think the ongoing damage to small projects is significative, some of this spam is sitting there for months. MarioGom (talk) 09:40, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

Status:    In progress

Long-term abuse. GRP. --Morneo06 (talk) 20:21, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

@Morneo06: We don't globally block GRP IPs since he's an IP hopping vandal, so globally blocking them is useless. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 07:47, 2 August 2021 (UTC)
They are limited in the number of IPs they can use per day, so handing out short blocks actually helps them to exhaust their limits. MarioGom (talk) 07:24, 3 August 2021 (UTC)
@MarioGom: no, it's not limited. He uses a VPN, so by the time you report one IP, he'll have switched to another, which geolocates to a different country as well. SHB2000 (talk | contibs) 00:56, 5 August 2021 (UTC)
SHB2000: This particular proxy service is limited to 10 IP changes per day for free users, AFAIK GRP and others use such free version. MarioGom (talk) 01:10, 5 August 2021 (UTC)

Global block for 186.84.90.84

Cross-wiki abuse. Vandalism after block. --SCP-2000 16:18, 2 August 2021 (UTC)

  • P2P proxy (LTAs favorite). Already blocked on enwiki. Expect rotation soon, so the block should be short. MarioGom (talk) 07:22, 3 August 2021 (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(dot)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(_AT_)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 Foo ===

Long-term abuse HurricaneEdgar 12:34, 26 June 2021 (UTC)

@HurricaneEdgar: How do you know these are socks? They are no where blocked, and I don't see a CU request. Or is there one? Trijnsteltalk 07:26, 7 July 2021 (UTC)
I have reported HoangDucTruongNguyen before as a sock of Hoa112008 because of their editing on vi:Mùa bão Tây Bắc Thái Bình Dương 2021, only to remove the report as I realized that was a duplicate. I'm not HurricaneEdgar but I can confirm that they are socks of Hoa112008 because HoangDucTruongNguyen's history of moving articles as well as their usual fields (history, geography, chemistry, and tropical cyclones), meanwhile I have reported AWERTING to COM:ANB as a DUCK case because their images were quickly used in the said Vietnamese Wikipedia article. MarioJump83! 00:57, 8 July 2021 (UTC)
AWERTING is now blocked as a sock of Mazum24. And I would say that HoangDucTruongNguyen is a DUCK from the evidence I have given. MarioJump83! 13:40, 9 July 2021 (UTC)
  • Sulfuricalisae is now block in commons as a sock Hoa112008 LTA. HurricaneEdgar 14:41, 20 July 2021 (UTC)

Long-term abuse. Cross-wiki abuse. --Daniuu (talk) 11:58, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

Any confirmation from a CheckUser? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 11:59, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
@DarkMatterMan4500: some accounts have been confirmed by enwiki checkuser, others are clear behavourially. --Daniuu (talk) 13:12, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
Daniuu Ahh, I see. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 13:13, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
Support Support - also please lock obvious sock below. IMHO the name says enough. -- Taketa (talk) 19:40, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
@Taketa: the sock you listed is indeed rather obvious looking at the username (it did not yet make any edits, so doing the duck test is rather difficult). As shown on the nlwiki checkuser request page, the account is not fully confirmed to the other ones (but it is still very likely to be a sockpuppet, partially for reasons I cannot discuss here - LWCU might be handy in this case). --Daniuu (talk) 20:17, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
Looks like enwiki and nlwiki have this dealt with. Any need for a lock? -- Amanda (aka DQ) 06:06, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Very long term editor who also edited on fywiki and vlswiki (where he came back after 6 months). I expect them to keep using the accounts on other wikis, like they did with enwiki (with now their third account active there "Stahitmao V" which hadn't edited and has not been noted or blocked yet), if not locked. As such, I would prefer a lock. Also alot easier for future reference on other wikis. All the best, Taketa (talk) 09:36, 19 July 2021 (UTC)

Long-term abuse. Lock evasion of Borcker. Please see this investigation. --DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 19:32, 30 July 2021 (UTC)

@DarkMatterMan4500: The last case there is from 1 January 2019. None of these accounts appear to have edits after that? What's the point in locking them after 2.5 years? Blablubbs (talk) 12:59, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
Blablubbs Wasn't Borcker already locked, along with his old accounts? If so, why not these ones? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 13:02, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
@DarkMatterMan4500, sure there's policy grounds for it, but there's a little more nuance to it than that. Tacking some bits of the archive onto a report for an active account is one thing for example, but actively seeking out old accounts that are technically eligible for locks and reporting them years after the fact if there's no indication that the master is even still active strikes me as unnecessary bureaucracy and busywork, considering that SRG is perpetually backlogged, there isn't an unlimited supply of time, and the tangible abuse prevention effect of spending it on active accounts is probably larger. Blablubbs (talk) 13:20, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
Then again, that could all change. DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 14:04, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
And we can handle it then if it does. Blablubbs (talk) 14:08, 1 August 2021 (UTC)
