Requests for global (un)block

Global block/unblock for 209.73.151.82

Status:    Done

I was shocked yesterday while editing incubator ar Wikitravel that my IP address was blocked, on all wikis, at 09:51, 22 June 2012 and for a three years term, with the following explanation: "webhosting used to spam". Today, I have found out that the problem has also spread into en wiki. However, things in ar Wikipedia still normal so far. I have contacted the steward who made the blocking action (Vituzzu) and asked him to unblock me. However, it has been about 24 hours by now and still no answer. I edit wikis actively so I am pretty affected with the block even for a one day, I hope my IP to be unblocked as soon as possible. Thanks! --aad_Dira (talk) 22:59, 2 May 2013 (UTC).

The IP is blocked as part of a range, 209.73.128.0/19, which seems to contain open proxies. Open proxies are frequently used to spam, that's why they often get blocked. You are not affected of this on ar.wikipedia, because you are a sysop there (sysops are exempt from IP blocks). I can give you a Global IP block exemption, so that you also won't be affected by this block anymore on Incubator or other wikis. However, do you maybe have recently had changes in your internet connection, which cause that your are now editing via a proxy, which could be reversed? --MF-W 23:51, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the response. The only significant thing I can think about lately is that I was out of the country for a few months and used different connections for a long time, but now I am home (since few weeks) using my normal internet connection which I always edit from, and all the time I wasn't here the connection wasn't suspended or stopped. Anyway, as far as I know the exception doesn't have any damage (I mean it wouldn't be a problem even if it was applied without being intensely required), so I would prefer if it is used --aad_Dira (talk) 02:14, 3 May 2013 (UTC).
So Yes check.svg Done --MF-W 02:19, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Status:    Done

I had my IP blocked from Vituzzu on Oct 22 2012 with reason 'hosting on iosmart'. It happens that my company is using RapidSwitch as provider (owned by iomart) but apart from that I do not understand why my IP has been blocked. I asked Vituzzu to be unblocked but I had no response. I need to be able to edit Wikipedia articles when working on DBpedia tasks ([2]). Thanks --Ninniuz (talk) 12:44, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

I did not made cross wiki abuse. Global block is not a tool for one wiki abuse.--218.237.59.122 09:05, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

X mark.svg Not done because of recurrent abuse on projects like ja.wikipedia, ko.wikipedia, etc. Even if you vandalized only one of them, abusing only one project is no valid reason for being unblocked. You've been blocked a consequent number of times now, especially on ko.wikipedia. I hope that you have changed your mind and want to contribute wisely and honnestly now, but please wait that the block expires before comming back.

Global block/unblock for 68.33.8.192

Status:    Not done

My expiry date was April 26, 2013. When I was deleting a content in an article (I stated my reasons afterwards), Vituzzu reverted my edits without reason and since I was blocked in the Wikipedia, he/she blocked my IP. As I said the expiry date was on April 26, after leaving him a message in his post in the Italian Wikipedia to let him know the deadline, he/she blocked me without any response when the block was supposed to finish yesterday. He/she didn't respond to any of my messages and before anything happened, it was my mistake to repeatedly edit without any consultation and had every right to block me, but after I cleared the point with Vituzzu in the second time I encountered him while I was editing, he/she just ignored my statements, put up irrelevant excuses and blocked me for evasion and his reasons were far from logical or reasonable. I went to leave a message to Vituzzu, in which he/she hasn't responded yet. The block was a result of a series of events in which I can explicitly explain If someone would be willing to hear my case, Thank you. --68.33.8.192 05:30, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

From looking at one wiki's data there seems to be locked accounts going back to March. I would think that we are not after an explanation, but we are after a guarantee that the problematic edits are going to stop. I will see if we can hunt up Vito for some background, however, that is not going to resolve any local issues that you have encountered, or any local blocks. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:51, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
After talking to Vito, this is declined, we will let the block expire normally in July. Take that time to reflect on the value of what you are missing. These sites and the work undertaken by the many people concerned is important to them, and your vandalism has upset numbers of people and taken up valuable time for your frivolous actions and momentary enjoyment. In life there are consequences for actions. At the end of the block, I hope that you will able to come back and be a valuable and respectful member of one of our communities. — billinghurst sDrewth 02:00, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Could someone enlighten me why I committed a cross-wiki spam? My last activity was yesterday and I only made minor editing on an article on the Sultanate of Sulu --Pansitkanton (talk) 21:30, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Probably you got assigned an IP address which was spamming. To solve this problem, it would be good to know the IP address in question. Either the block can be removed, or you can be given an IP block exemption, if it turns out you are on a range of frequent spamming activities. Please email stewards at wikimedia.org if you would like to not make the IP public. --MF-W 23:51, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Global unlock for Thekohser

Status:    In progress
  • Thekohser (talk • contribs • block • xwiki-contribs • xwiki-date • CA • ST • lwcheckuser)
  • My account was globally locked in early 2010 after private discussions between Jimbo Wales and Mike.lifeguard. They were asked numerous times to disclose the rationale for a global lock, but none was provided, though it seemed obvious to me that the main reason was because Wales didn't approve of quotations attributed to him that I was placing on Wikiquote. Eventually, several Wikimedia communities (German Wikipedia, English Wikibooks, Wikisource, Wikiversity, and Wikimedia Commons) determined that the global block was improper, as it didn't reflect my good standing in each of those other projects. So, my account was renamed by a steward or a bureaucrat (I think it was Pathoschild), and then named back again on each project, so that the account would become uncoupled from the out-of-process "global lock". What I am asking for is either a similar work-around to restore my editing privileges on the projects where I have been participating dutifully for over three years, or an actual "community rendered" vote on whether my account should be placed under global lock, based on the three-year-old concerns of two admins who acted privately (without community discussion) to effect the lock. -- 2001:558:1400:10:811F:A519:E80:6495 13:38, 16 May 2013 (UTC) (as, Thekohser, since I cannot log in with my account.)
  • Possible helpful links. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

This might help (no comment from me on this case, just a timeline clarifying the comments above. I recuse myself from any action as I was peripherally involved in this back in 2010 QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:11, 16 May 2013 (UTC)):

  • 25 March 2010 blocked by Jimbo at Meta for one year (Cross-wiki issues: Globally banned user)
  • 3 May 2010 account locked by Magister Mathematicae based on a discussion on Jimbo's talk page
  • 5 May 2010 account unlocked by Pathoschild who then applied local blocks to all projects where Thekohser was active (current block list available here)
  • 30 May 2010 account locked by mike.lifeguard (comment per discussion)
  • After 30 May 2010 various projects circumvent the global lock by renaming Thekohser to unmerge the local accounts from the locked global account.
    • dewiki - unblocked but not renamed, account is still impacted by the global lock
    • enwikibooks renamed to unmerge the account
    • enwikinews renamed to unmerge the account
    • enwikisource unblocked but not unmerged
    • enwikiversity renamed to unmerge
    • rowiki unblocked but not unmerged
    • Commons unblocked, reblocked, unblocked, etc. Currently blocked

I may have made some mistakes here as I was working through it quickly - feel free to adjust the data if it is wrong QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:11, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Note - I am not a friend of Thekohser, and I have a long documented negative interaction with him on another Wiki (Wikiversity). I enforced his global ban there, and I took actions to prohibit him from editing the Wiki. That being said, I have never thought that his lock was done properly. When I upheld it against him there, I did so to uphold the spirit of the rules and to defend the system. I would have no problem with him being globally unlocked. I do have a problem with individuals circumventing the global lock on a local level through breaking the SUL. So I would support an unlock and, if he shows that he merits such an action in the future, he can then be put up for a global ban. Ottava Rima (talk) 14:35, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
  • The user is in good standing at enWS for their editing, though not always renowned for good communications, or leaving other wikis baggage at the door, but is not unique in that regard; and good editing and transcription is the skill set that enWS is looking for. The 'global ban' at that time was problematic for the enWS community in the nature of its imposition and the lack of communication, and not a circumstance that I would like to see repeated. It is my opinion that summary imposition of a global lock of an editor of good-/long-standing is something that should be avoided without a broader community consultation. Personally, I would prefer that the global lock be repealed, and if the global community does not want the editor editing they have a means to undertake to resolve such matters and one that the stewards can enforce following due process. I would ask the appellant to try to refrain from the wild accusations, stick to the facts of what they want and why. Their opinions on other people's opinions, let alone these people's actions, are seemingly irrelevant to the matter in hand. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:11, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
    Supplementary. I do not favour the approach of trying to disconnect accounts from the global SUL, from my understanding of the proposed unification process it simply becomes both problematic and unworkable, such why I favour the unlocking of the account. — billinghurst sDrewth 16:14, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
    Actually I'm wondering how much legit and useful is this un(b)lock(s). --Vituzzu (talk) 19:58, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
    The appellant seems to think it legitimate and usefu. Mine is just an opinion for whomever evaluates. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:40, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
    On Wikiversity, I was out of process desysopped because I defended the unlock, and the Stewards all seemed to side with that at the time and refused to reblock him, restore my adminship, etc. So it is so legit that the Stewards at the time allowed major policy violations to happen to uphold it. Ottava Rima (talk) 03:28, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
    This is not about you, this is someone's appeal against a lock. This is meant to be forward looking, not rehashing history, that just informs the review. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:39, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
    Your incivility is uncalled for. The Stewards have unanimously ruled previous on the breaking of the lock, and deemed that the abuse of power by Wikiversity admin in upholding the lock break was to be acceptable. You obviously did not bother to even look at the incident that I discussed. Ottava Rima (talk) 14:43, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

I think the Global bans policy should be followed moving forward. Thekohser was active on 19 projects. None of 19 communities were informed and asked to weigh in on a global ban --darklama 12:58, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Global unblock for 2001:1af8::/32 (SixXS)

Status:    In progress

This IPv6 range belongs to the SixXS ISP, which provides fixed IP addresses and tunnels after registration, and hence does not qualify by the definition of open proxy. Individual hosts can be reported via the abuse page. Please remove the default block on the range and use individual /64 blocks where appropriate. - Combusterf (talk) 11:44, 28 May 2013 (UTC)

The /32 is allocated to a webhost, LeaseWeb, which typically has open proxies, and has been found to contain a few.
