Requests for global (un)block

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

Status:    Done

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. I would suggest exempting the prefixes specified at [1], but a steward would then have to make 8 blocks in place of this single block for that.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:00, 28 May 2013 (UTC)
To get this done, what would the 8 blocks be? --MF-W 12:39, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Editing from your IP address (129.78.233.210) has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 01:23, 27 June 2014 by Shizhao (meta.wikimedia.org) for the following reason: Open proxy. I cannot understand why this is. This is a private mac computer. This is the first time I have edited a page on WIkipedia. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 129.78.233.210 (talk • contribs) 01:59, 27 June 2013‎ (UTC)

MF-Warburg modified the global block on 129.78.233.210 (anonymous only, expires 01:23, 27 June 2014) with the following comment: University of Sydney IP, several good edits, but also 'Recently reported forum spam source'. changing to anon-only. --MF-W 23:30, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

I'd like to request the above IP be unblocked. This is an IP sitting in front of a Websense web filtering server. The block message says we are blocked by Vituzzu for the following reason: Open proxy: hosting on nlayer. Not sure what this means or what corrective actions we need to take. --69.31.123.194 22:18, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

As you can see from my experience above (see the section titled 'Global unblock for 166.78.181.17'), I don't think you're going to get much of a response here or by posting on Vituzzu's Talk page (he ignored my various questions). The only way I got anything done was by emailing stewards@wikimedia.org. Good luck... Douglaswyatt (talk) 06:31, 20 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice, I just sent them an email. This is pretty frustrating as you'd think there'd be a wiki on how to deal with these types of issues, at least a troubleshooting wiki would be immensely helpful.

Global block/unblock for laugizzi 195.47.207.250

Status:    Not done

User Dome has indefinitely blocked my account on it.wikipedia on the wrong assumption that I performed a change on a specific page on behalf of someone else who's based in another country and who I don't know (I believe the term is sockpupet) I've tried to explain that I do not know that person and that, as that was my first and only contribution to wikipedia, that was just the consequence of some unfortunate timing, however the user dome (http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utente:Dome) is ignoring my plead, hence I am escalating the issue here hoping that you're able to either convince the user dome of my good faith or to unblock me on your behalf. Please note that the change I made was neglectable (Re-arranging an info box), although it looks like I made that change at the same time when that user I was accused to be the sockpupet of was fighting for the same change.

Thanks a lot

Laurence (Laugizzi)

There is no global block on this IP address. You are facing a local block that applies at a specific wiki only. Stewards are unable to assist in this matter, and you will need to explore the local rules for the wiki of interest and pursue the unblock through their processes. Closing as X mark.svg Not done as there is nothing to be done at the global level. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:05, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Thank you —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 74.93.15.33 (talk)

I am not sure for what you are asking, and there is a mess of IP addresses in play. 69.31.123.194 is from above, and not relevant; 50.18.216.174 is an Amazon IP address and it is possible that there may be a Kindle in play here to complicate matters. 74.93.15.33 is a comcast address and not blocked.

We have tried to identify and exclude IP addresses used by Kindles, and just block the problematic servers that spammers have been using within the Amazon clusters, though we can never guarantee that things will be completely static and some adjustment will not be necessary. Some clarification would be useful. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:10, 29 July 2013 (UTC)

Global unlock for Diogotome

Status:    Done

The fact that this user (my brother) edits from the same house as me is no reason to block him, let alone globally lock his account. The decision was recently made at Commons to unblock his account, but due to this unwarranted global lock, he can't even log in there. Please see OTRS ticket 2013070410010677. ~ DanielTom (talk) 14:36, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Copy of my statement at Wikisource:
The global lock of my brother's account is ... absurd, as his edits at Portuguese Wikipedia (where he created this article) and Commons, were perfectly fine... it should be up to each individual wiki to decide whether he should be blocked or not. [Commons recently decided that he should not remain blocked.] I think it obvious that there has certainly been no cross-wiki abuse that warrants such a global lock.
For the record. ~ DanielTom (talk) 15:07, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Note that the local blocks remain in place as nothing can be done about them from here (and the user is also still blocked on Commons). Regarding the lock I am unable to verify the truth of your statements right now, but it's also not necessary to do so, local sysops should deal with this matter individually. My lock was inappropriate in the first place since the account was not clearly being abusing cross-wiki. --MF-W 16:07, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. He has to clearly identify himself on his user page, at Commons, as my brother, in order to be unblocked. But he couldn't do so, because he was still globally locked, and couldn't log in. So the first step to deal with local blocks was to get him globally unlocked. Now that he is, he can deal with the local blocks himself. DanielTom (talk) 16:19, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
