Requests for global (un)block

Global block for IPv6 proxy range

global blocks for 78.85.0.0/16

I know it's a bit unusual but would you please consider globally blocking 78.85.0.0/16 for some period? It belongs to en:Udmurtia and is currently blocked for 2 weeks in Russian Wikipedia. The problem is, this vandal is bragging how he vandalizes other projects.
Some of his edits (and I wasn't looking very hard): two weeks ago en:78.85.75.42, en:78.85.139.170, en:78.85.240.166, recently pl:78.85.78.122, fr:78.85.22.180, es:78.85.94.38.
AlexSm 05:21, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

In the last 5 days vandal made these numbers of edits, constantly changing IPs:

en: 38 (blocks)
de: 160 (blocks)
fr: 80 (blocks)
it: 104 (no blocks)
pl: 400 (blocks)
es: 406 (blocks)

AlexSm 17:25, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Done. Since we can't really know how much impact it'll have over good faith users I've set it anon. only for three days. Of course if the vandalism returns, reblocking can be considered. Regards, — MA (audiencia) 17:36, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Please block it for at least 2 weeks to avoid another "wave" after August 4. When I checked ranged IP contribs on different projects I saw virtually zero constructive edits from this range. Also if global blocks don't affect Meta (see 78.85.90.190 & 78.85.78.25) please also block this range on Meta. — AlexSm 15:06, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

Done. Range looks to host a large number of open proxies too. Now it's one month. — MA (audiencia) 10:56, 3 August 2012 (UTC)

These Dutch IP's keep on spamming my talk pages after I reverted some of their vandalism. They were already blocked for about 30 spam-edits with nasty, insulting and immature comments about me (with this as final result). Now they have started again (1, 2 and 3) and request a block so they will not be able to spam me on any of my talk pages. Regards, Kippenvlees1 (talk) 10:00, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done If this is a enWP issue (as per the examples), then it can and should be dealt with locally at enWP. Stewards should only be using global blocks for more holistic issues.

Global unblock for 82.193.109.249/19

Status:    Not done

The range was globally blocked by Vituzzu for 6 months in connection with "cross-wiki spam". Since this is a typical IP range belonging to a popular Ukrainian provider, I doubt this measure was optimal. There are two ways to go, either to block the provider for a short period to stop the hooligan, or to complain to the ISP if the disruption was long-term and left no other way. Therefore I kindly ask to unblock the range to let other users edit from it. I would also like to know more detail about the issue, such as when the vandalism began and what measures had been taken before the clampdown. (My yesterday's message to Vituzzu, still unanswered.) --Microcell (talk) 20:03, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

OK, since no one apparently wants to take care of this, I will mark it as X mark.svg Not done now. The problem is, that this range has been abused. Abuse reports to the ISP usually, or better, always end up being ignored. If you want to edit Wikimedia projects from this IP range, then you should complain to your provider who then can contact us at stewards(_AT_)wikimedia.org about the block. If we unblock the range, the people who are responsible for the spam will just go on and that is no solution for us. Sorry, -Barras talk 09:56, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Global unlock for Si Gam Acèh

Status:    Not done

This user has agreed not to attack other Wikimedia projects. -- Si Gam (talk) 09:27, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Several users, including me, have been involved in discussion during the past 6 months in ace.wp. Basically, Si Gam Acèh, who previously have been globally blocked ([2]), has showed willingness to follow the guideline set by Wikipedia and is asking to use his old account to edit at ace.wp again. During this last couple months, using the account he's using right now I see no disruptive behaviour other than several heated debate over a new proposed policy in ace.wp. He mainly writes about Acehnese language, and doing some interwiki in several projects. Therefore I think the user could be given a second chance, with a note that if he keep pushing his old agenda, the account will be locked for good. (Other restrictions may apply).
Since there's no need to use multiple account to edit Wikipedia, you should choose one account. Either Si Gam Acèh (since 7 October 2009, home wiki ace.wp, 2,079 edits) or Muhammad Nabil Berri (since 6 August 2008, home wiki id.wp, 1,147 edits). And since I'm partially having conflict of interest, it will be up to other stewards to close this request either yes or no, while I can only give my opinion about the case. Bennylin 14:04, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
I want to merge all accounts into one account, Si Gam Acèh. -- Si Gam (talk) 19:15, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
Hello Si Gam. I agree with Bennylin above. However, we don't have the technical possibility of merging accounts yet. What I generally advise when somebody asks to merge two (or more) accounts is to simply keep one and redirect the user pages of the second ones to the main account's user page. Regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 06:26, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
"Since there's no need to use multiple account to edit Wikipedia" – Fwiw, there's no obligation to use the same username in every project. If Si Gam has used one account to edit id.wp and another to edit ace.wp (for example), I don't see why stewards should prevent that by unlocking one account and keeping the other locked.

So, Si Gam, you can use your current account, or, if you have strong reason, Si Gam Acèh would be unlocked (remember, that account has history of being blocked). But account merging is not possible. Bennylin 06:20, 30 May 2012 (UTC)

My former accounts Si Gam Acèh (ace, en) and Muhammad Nabil Berri (id) are my first accounts in Wikipedia and they have more than 2.000 and 1.000 contributions. And also those accounts are full with history for me. So it's impossible for me to forget those accounts. Btw, why account merging is not possible? -- Si Gam (talk) 16:33, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
It is not technically possible to merge accounts. There is no such feature in mediawiki. Snowolf How can I help? 02:30, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
I suggest you choose either Si Gam Acèh or Muhammad Nabil Berri. (the technical limitation has nothing to do with your request, btw, it cannot be done whether you ask it or other people ask it) Bennylin 08:28, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
OK, I choose Si Gam Acèh except for id.wp I use Muhammad Nabil Berri. Is it allowed? -- Si Gam (talk) 05:37, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
I think that the easiest way will be to unmerge the local idwp account of Muhammad Nabil Berri. What's others opinion ? -- Quentinv57 (talk) 06:24, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
Quentin, is it possible to unmerge Si_Gam_Acèh@idwp which only has 39 edits, then usurp that name for Muhammad_Nabil_Berri@idwp which has 1053 edits? Bennylin 08:46, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
What's wrong with just unlocking the Muhammad Nabil Berri account? Surely that's preferable to forcing the user to unmerge a local account from their SUL. Jafeluv (talk) 13:50, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
@Bennylin : Of course it is. He just needs to ask the idwp bureaucrats for that.
@Jafeluv : If there is an other solution, I prefer not to unlock accounts previously locked by other stewards. I don't plan to force anyone to do something, but if Si Gam Acèh just needs this account on idwp there is no need to give him this account on other projects, especially because it has been abused in the past.

Global unlock for gilchristr

Status:    Not done

I received two automatic emails generated by users MoiraMoira and TBloemink telling me that my account was locked. There is a discussion of this here: http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overleg_gebruiker:MoiraMoira#You_have_blocked_me

Both users have joined in to tell me that I am globally locked, but that they did not do it! All I was trying to do was give wikipedia users who are interested in the Tour de France the opportunity to ride the stages by helicopter on Google Earth; they would have a free download of all the stages with helicopter tours. Global locking is an extreme measure which is completely inappropriate in this case. I would like to be unlocked! The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.26.85.125 (talk • contribs) 12:22, 29 June 2012‎ (UTC).

See here the account was not locked by tbloemink nor me nor did we write an email at all. The account was rightfully globally locked upon request done in the steward channel by wiki13. The account was spamming a link cross wiki. The person involved does not see from the conversation on my talk page (see link given) that this is unwanted here. MoiraMoira (talk) 12:27, 29 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks MoiraMoira. What is "spamming a link cross wiki?" Is it a sin to update more than one wiki page if they are in different languages? If I had added the reference in only one language set, would that have been ok? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.26.85.125 (talk)

The issue is the link that you have added to multiple wikis would seem to not be an encyclopaedic link, and would actually seem to promote an interest contrary to the interests of the wikis. I would suggest that reading w:en:Wikipedia:External links would be relevant. I would think that we would be willing to remove the global lock, though it would be conditional on following the guidance of the wikis around suitable editing. To note that any removal of a global lock would not override any local blocks. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:05, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm not comfortable with fulfilling self-requested [b]locks (but there are others who are ok with this) but seems I can't find a link between BF14 and your account (either from log or user page history).
