Requests for global (un)block

Global block/unblock for 204.45.38.58

Status:    soft block only, see below

My IP was blocked because of abuse or being part of a subnet that has abuse but I've been the sole owner of this IP for the last two years and I have not edited anything on wikipedia am starting just now. Under the reason for my block this was given and this is not even my IP: The block was made by Ajraddatz (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is Open proxy: hosting on fdcservers + spam from 204.45.200.228 .

This is an anon IP block on a range, so it is not targeted at you individually, instead at the other rubbish that is allowed by your provider. Please create an account and login to that to edit.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:56, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Global block/unblock for 170.185.83.19

Status:    Not done

Shared school IP who vandalized and blocked on several projects. If blocked, make it anonymous only. --2607:FCC8:BC8A:EA00:C6D:F095:2A2F:A3EE 15:20, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

There is no evidence of widespread, ongoing abuse, and as such it is better handled by the communities.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:58, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Cross-wiki vandalism. --Matiia (talk) 01:20, 3 October 2015 (UTC)

Global unblock for 69.63.114.3

Status:    Not done

I am requesting a gloal unblock for 69.63.114.3 Because it is a proxy runnning on 3128, but requires credentials and thus is not an open proxy. There was an anon. only block on the English Wikipedia, thanks to JamesBWatson for removing the open proxy block also on the English Wikipedia, after seeing no evidence of an open proxy running for 3 weeks. However, Billinghurst reenacted the open proxy block, this time globally, without any recent evidence of this. He referenced StopFourmSpam in the block reason on the English Wikipedia. I believe this block was made without evidence, and after another administrator removed the block, and needs to be repealed. --Jamdor (talk) 14:51, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

@Jamdor: Really? Dumb idea to make such an accusation. The IP address will only have come to my attention from spambot activity on the wikis within the day of the block; with the URL reference being informative only . The spambot activity would also have been on a wiki other than enWP. Presuming that you are not a spammer, that would tend to indicate that you still have a security hole. (I only block IP addresses based on wiki activity.)
Please look to another review and update of your security. The open port would appear to be being abused.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:18, 15 October 2015 (UTC)

Global unblock for 122.200.1.151

Status:    Not done

Nexus 6P (successor of Nexus 6) has been officialy announced. So, adding Nexus 6P is constructive now. You might want to protect the page instead. --122.200.1.151 03:18, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Not relevant for us, please contact a local administrator on the concerned project if you think a page protection is necessary. Savhñ 16:35, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Global block for 166.170.55.0/24

Status:    Not done

Cross wiki vandalism. Example [1]. Consider blocking the range 166.170.55.0/24 as well. --170.185.83.19 16:23, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

I don't think global blocking is necessary - the edits are all a few days old and seem to be concentrated on en.wiki. Savhñ 16:33, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Status:    Not done

another crosswiki vandal from range and the IP above. Please block both. Thanks! --170.185.83.19 15:50, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

And heres another one: 166.172.0.0/16. --170.185.83.19 15:57, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
He is likely to have switched IP's in the meantime. A rangeblock might indeed be useful - we will look into it - but blocking a whole /16 range would likely have a great deal of collateral damage. Savhñ 14:58, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Cross-project vandal, mostly Romanian-centric, who poses as a legitimate user but effectively defaces the content by using invented words and concepts. Banned indefinitely on the Romanian Wikipedia, he keeps resurfacing on less well-maintained sister projects (Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikiquote, etc). --Gutza (talk) 06:15, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Hei, Guță, eu nu sunt un vandal cum afirmi tu mincinos aici! Eu cred că am fost blocat la ro.Wikipedia de o mafia de securiști-securitate care nu suportă că un român care nu locuiește în Romania scrie , relativ independent față de respectiva mafie. Îi rog pe cei ce anchetează cazul la Wikimedia să aibă discernământ, Guțza care mă reclamă aici pe mine este un user care nu mai are multe contribuții la ro.Wiki, se ceartă pe acolo mai mult pentru mafia lui.BAICAN XXX (talk) 07:19, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
Courtesy translation: "Hey, [Gutza], I'm not a vandal as you're lying here! I think I was blocked on ro.Wikipedia by a mafia of members of the w:Securitate who can't stand it that a Romanian who doesn't live in Romania writes, relatively independently from said mafia. I'm asking the people who investigate the case at Wikimedia to ponder things properly, [Gutza] who's complaining about me here is a user who doesn't have many contributions on ro.Wiki any more, he's fighting there mostly for his mafia." --Gutza (talk) 09:33, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

I've seen this request and it must be mentioned for the record that the indefinite block on Romanian Wikipedia has been obtained by very questionable arguments by some users who had had differences of opinions for instance re titles of some articles with BAICAN and used very questionable tactics to get this user blocked. The questionable procedures consisted in hunting every edits of this user to find supposed minor mistakes and accumulation of black box warnings as reasons for blocking. There is a Romanian idiomatic expression hardly translatable in English for this tactic, mentioned here without Romanian diacritics a cauta nod in papura whose literal English translation is searching knots in reedmace. The meaning of the expression is hunting for/of mistakes.--5.15.1.32 10:30, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough, you're entitled to your opinion. But if needed, I can invite the community on ro.wiki to comment on this request, and we'll all be able to tell if there is a genuine consensus, or indeed this is a result of some rogue users trying to ban this guy for no reason. I will need confirmation from a steward before inviting people to add to this conversation (I think there will be more than a few). --Gutza (talk) 15:43, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
Please do not use this as a discussion board. Locking is used certain specific cases, and seeing the discussion above, it seems you aim at a global ban instead. Closing this as not done. Savhñ 16:48, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
The discussion above is civil because I chose to keep it so. I also wanted to offer you proof of the overwhelming consensus for locking a user who's effectively defacing all Romanian-language pages he's touching. Unfortunately there's no other way of proving this, because while the vandalism is obvious to a person speaking Romanian, it's not so for a foreigner. Imagine if I went to the Dutch Wikipedia and I started feverishly editing articles with words that don't exist in Dutch – how would you prove to a steward who doesn't understand Dutch that I'm a vandal, other than by showing proof of overwhelming consensus at the Dutch Wikipedia? And last but not least, please note carefully who's taking part in this conversation – I did my best to keep things simple, and this section has only accrued one response from BAINCAN and one response from an anonymous user in a week; I'd hardly call that a conversation. --Gutza (talk) 20:36, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
I am glad you attempt a civil discussion, but this is not the place for discussion. If you consider discussion is necessary, please hold it elsewhere before coming to this page, for instance through a Request for comment. Savhñ 20:55, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
I do not. The discussion exists only because nobody has acted on the request for a week, and the person who needs blocking is defending themselves; is that not to be expected? If all of the vandals being locked here came to talk would you cease to process all requests? --Gutza (talk) 21:03, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, most locked accounts are not contributors, and therefore I think global locking is not an alternative here. I would suggest blocking locally. Savhñ 17:47, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
I find it disappointing that you chose to make a decision before reading my original complaint above (which is obvious based on your suggestion), so I find that the second half of this conversation is just as productive as the first half. A waste of time for both of us, and a solid win for a cross-wiki vandal. --Gutza (talk) 19:03, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
Savh, please note that this user was already blocked on the following Romanian projects: Wikipedia, WikiManuale, Wikţionar, Wikisource, Wikicitat. The problem is that as soon as he is blocked on one project he migrates to another, contributing in an inappropriate manner. Regards, --Silenzio76 (talk) 12:55, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
I am really sorry I can't help you, but locking is not the solution. You link the contributions on ro.wikivoyage, but there seems to be at least an attempt to seriously contribute there. Please explain what you mean with "contributing in an inappropiate manner", though to me it seems that he is contributing in good faith there - contrary to all the long-term abusers and spambots (if those have faith) we do lock.

Ping: Long-time cross-wiki vandaliser User:影武者

Status:    Done

Greetings, stewards. This long-time cross-wiki vandaliser called User:影武者 has recently spreaded his vandalism from Chinese Wikipedia to Cantonese Wikipedia and renewed his relentless attack on User:Lanwi11 with new sock-puppets with very provocative names like "支那賤畜蘭維一仇視猶太人" (lit. "Low-born Chink ork Lanwi11 hates Jews."), "蘭維一想插山口理子的陰道" (lit. "Lanwi11 wants to bang Rina Nakanishi in her vagina."), etc.. Based on his pattern of vandalism, it would be only a matter of time for him to spread his vandalism to the Incubator. Hydriz told me it would be a good idea to ping youse, so here I am. Please keep your eyes open. 【粵語文學大使殘陽孤侠粵維辭典起錨! 04:15, 21 October 2015 (UTC)
