Request for global (un)block

Global block change for 86.83.155.44

Status:    Not done

This permanent global-block on this static IP can affect a new person wich take an new internet connection on this ISP, so it would be better to change the permanent-block to 1 year-block.Crochet.david 17:20, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

  • User has had the same IP for a minimum of three years. If we're going to shorten it, I'd suggest no less than three years. Folks with static IPs tend to hold onto them for a good amount of time. Kylu 18:52, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
  • Personally I agree with the current block settings. --dferg ☎ talk 19:12, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
    • X mark.svg Not done No consensus to shorthen now. Review in the future. -- Avi 08:31, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Global unblock for 218.186.8.230

Status:    Done

This IP range belong to the internet service provider Starhub in Singapore. Going through their proxy is compulsory for legal reason. Blocking the range indiscriminately block all Starhub users.

Done, thanks for letting us know. --Mercy 13:03, 21 September 2010 (UTC)

Global block for 213.168.50.236

Status:    Done

This static IP belongs to ru:user:Терский берег who was indefinitely blocked on the Russian Wikipedia for regular vandalism. After his unblock was recently refused by the ruwiki arbitration committee he started cross-wiki vandalism on the user pages of a Russian admin [1]. [2]. I assume that the indefinitely blocked for vandalism in enwiki en:Город Мурманск 1916 belongs to him as well. The admin is active in several wikis so further vandalism can be expected there. Because the Russian arbcom has decided that ru:user:Терский берег can request unblock after half a year I think the global block with deactivation of user registration option can be useful for this period as well.

After such recent commentary as this, I'm inclined to agree. Yes check.svg Blocked for six months. Kylu 11:52, 15 September 2010 (UTC)

Line Break Deleter

Status:    Done

Is back again after his last block expired on August 31,: 3 months. Since then 89 new vandals edits in more than 10 different projects. Still deletes line breaks at the end of level headers. Has a sum of 1.021 vandal edits in 31 projects over the years.

Currently all these IPs are blocked on meta.wiki for vandalism.Ben Ben 16:43, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Request for global (un)lock and (un)hiding

Global lock for Tecpatl-Bot

Status:    Done

I think this user needs reviewing. I spotted the block on Commons where the "bot" is being used to upload images with false licenses. Seeing it has been blocked on a couple of other wiki and there is no apparent "owner" I suggest this account be considered for locking. Thanks --Herby talk thyme 12:42, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Locked. I note that the large number of non-upload edits makes this fail to look like an actual bot, perhaps it's a user that, for some reason, doesn't know better? Anyway, if it's a legitimate bot somehow, we'll be sure to hear about it soon enough. Kylu 17:03, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Global lock for coprophilic vandal

Status:    Done

The accounts belong to a persistent vandal that has been attacking pt.wiktionary and pt.wikiquote. I have blocked them but they need to be hidden or renamed as they're offensive names. Striker 20:44, 18 September 2010 (UTC)

Global lock for coprophilic vandal

Status:    Done

Another account of the recurrent vandal who offends pt.wikiquote and pt.wiktionary creating offensive user names and then going on and adding offensive material in many different pages. We have blocked this account locally, but since it's an offensive name, it has to be hidden or renamed. Striker 21:25, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
