Xwiki vandalism according to PiRSquared17. Eurodyne (talk) 05:26, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Global block/unblock for Ćma

Status:    Not done

I want my account to be globally blocked. Ćma (talk) 14:10, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

User accounts can not be globally blocked. They can only be locked. When locked you can't login or access your watchlist at all. Are you sure about this? Of course this is a steward decision not mine. Eurodyne (talk) 01:18, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
Not done. Per SRP discussion. Ajraddatz (talk) 02:13, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Global block/unblock for Liteman

Status:    Not done

I want my account to be globally blocked. Liteman (talk) 14:08, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

As I said to the user above, user accounts can not be globally blocked. They have to be locked. Consider making sure that you really want a lock on your account. Locks aren't usually given out on user request. Eurodyne (talk) 01:19, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Global unblock for 198.50.136.118

Status:    Done

This IP address is blocked since April, 22 2013 00h27. I own this IP address on a personal server (hosted by OVH) since May 2014. I'm hosting on it my mail server and it's also my OpenVPN exit node. I never hosted on it an OpenProxy since I managed it. I think this IP address should not be blocked anymore.--Quack1 (talk) 12:51, 9 November 2014 (UTC)

@Vituzzu: Can you please look into this?--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 07:56, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
There are too many open proxies in 198.50.128.0/17 to warrant an unblock. Instead, I've set up an exemption for your account, you should now be able to contribute using your username "Quack1". Elfix 08:03, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Global unblock for 94.23.236.101

I am currently experiencing a global block, and am wishing to be unblocked, I use my server in order to edit within undesirable conditions (internet monitoring), the entire data center of OVH has been blocked, would it be possible to obtain an unblock for this IP address? I have never hosted an open proxy. Thanks! --Zackp30 (talk) 09:51, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Global unblock for 37.59.116.183

Status:    Done

This IP was blocked before I started using it ( Start of block: 05:39, 31 March 2014 -- date I started using server/IP: October 2014). It was blocked as part of a blanket block on a large number of OVH's IPs. It is currently assigned to a VPS I run on OVH's network. It is used as a private web server as well as a private proxy server (using SOCKS over SSH). Only I will ever have access to it, and I treat it as my stable public IP (whenever I can I connect through it). I'm only just wanting to get started editing Wikipedia (I may have had an account a few years ago, but not that I can recall). My server does not and will not have any proxy system that cannot be used without a login (which will only ever be used by myself). I will of course notify if I ever lose this IP, but I have no plans on doing so. --JohnOscarThomson (talk) 22:46, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

I have softened the block on the range, and hope that will suffice. It is a problematic range for us.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:36, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Unblock for 216.176.158.43

Status:    Not done

I was editing simple english wikipedia so i had something to do while waiting for my utterly POINTLESS block to expire on wikipedia and banned myself by attacking materialscientist. then i got bored and started searching for copyvios on wikimedia commons. then i attacked materialscientist to convince him to unblock me when i found out that he had an account on commons and getting myself globally blocked. i feel ashamed of myself. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 216.176.158.43 (talk) 18:10, 19.

Glad that you have reflected on your completely unacceptable behaviour. Hopefully by February you will understand that there are consequences for your actions, and how seriously we take such abuse.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:09, 22 November 2014 (UTC)

I was blocked for "Open Poxy". However, Because the action for which I was blocked was therefore not disruption as described in the blocking policy, I request to be unblocked.. --66.50.27.116 16:14, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

See m:NOP, editing from an open proxy is generally restricted if it has been abused. The block only targets anonymous users, so if you create an account then you will no longer be prevented from editing. Thanks, Ajraddatz (talk) 22:38, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

I was told that I can request this instead of block. Liteman (talk) 14:14, 28 November 2014 (UTC)

I see no discussion saying that this can be done. If you are concerned your password may be stolen, and don't wish to use any Wikimedia site again, then change your password to a random string of characters now. Then if it is stolen it is valueless except for logging in here - which shouldn't be your concern if you do not intend to contribute further. QuiteUnusual (talk) 14:19, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
