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

Multiple of these are day issues, and no evidence of extended abuse; the /36 has good edits and should not be blocked at that level.

The /23 shows a range of good edits, so blocking this without clear signs of ongoing abuse seems not recommended. Would recommend no action unless necessary, and maybe local action as required, not global blocks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:07, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Long term xwiki editing of film and related articles. Many of these edits are unreverted.

Global block for 146.70.0.0/16

Status:    In progress

This /16 range belongs to M247 and hosts a high amount of VPN servers. Whois data may be a bit confusing, since this is divided in /24 subranges for different countries, like 146.70.8.0/24, 146.70.9.0/24, ..., 146.70.39.0/24. It seems to be a recent assignment, so bots are missing it. --MarioGom (talk) 07:39, 1 June 2021 (UTC)

@MarioGom: So what is the problem? We don't block VPNs for being VPNs.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:52, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Cross-wiki vandalism and LTA. You can check the cross-wiki contributions and blocks. Quite a few individual IPs and /24 subranges have recently been blocked globally or locally. Since VPN services allow to easily change exit servers and M247 ranges host thousands of exit servers, these vandals and LTA just jump to the next server once blocked. It is a matter of time that all active M247 ranges get blocked, so why not be done with the /16 now instead of gradually blocking it over the next few months? Just for reference, here's some other M247 ranges containing VPN servers that are currently globally blocked:

--MarioGom (talk) 08:21, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

@MarioGom: Your provided list more demonstrates the futility of placing the blocks if they can hop to all of those places. Blocking good editors is not the way to manage an LTA. VPNs are not open proxies, and they are no different to dynamic IP addresses, so we need a more mature approach to our responses. LTAs can and should be managd by other means.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:53, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
From an anti-abuse perspective, I see no meaningful difference to an open proxy. They are anonymising proxies that allow users to rapidly hop between IPs and ranges, hence making CU pretty useless. Blablubbs|talk 20:14, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
@Blablubbs: What the wikis individually do with these is their business as they have a closer capacity to look at and evaluate the consequences of their blocks. There should be a clear issue of unresolvable problems for a global block and steward actions.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:25, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Sure, but does it matter? It's an leaky webhost/open proxy and it has been abused. Affected users can request exception from IP-block. EstrellaSuecia (talk) 11:34, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
What is the purpose of global blocks? If you have it managed at your wiki and it impacts your wiki, why do more? How much collateral damage? So what sort of blocks are you recommending? Soft or hard? What time period? What are we gaining? We should do the minimum necessary, not the maximum. We should not be stopping good edits wherever possible.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:35, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

There are good editors in the /18 AS29465 VCG-AS, NG . Seeing good edits at Commons and metawiki, so cannot endorse this request.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:35, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
Since most of edits were vandalism, the global block is still recommended for prevent vandalism in multiple wikis. Stewards can whitelist the global block in individual wikis for avoid collateral damage. If global block this IP range is unnecessary, I recommended Stewards can block following IP ranges:
Thanks. SCP-2000 08:47, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
@SCP-2000: That is not the /18, only one of those ranges is in the /18, two in the next /18, one on the last of the 4th /18, so you are covering the whole /16. If I was an editor in that range, I would be affronted if I got blocked on that sort of wide range just to stop some minor vandalism that is easily identified and managed. And stewards should not be having to pick through wikis then go and whitelist ranges, especially as that is not clearly within the scope of their duties. If needed we can generate an abuse filter that watches the /16 for small and medium wikis, and leave the large wikis to manage themselves and to make their own decisions. We should be looking for the least possible impact, not using the sledgehammer.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:42, 13 June 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.
