WDHB. Vermont (talk) 19:45, 21 December 2018 (UTC)

It seems 51.68.0.0/16 is an OVH range, so a webhost/proxy. — surjection?〉 20:25, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
Vermont, you beat me to it. Thanks. Please revdel it all, stewards, and when you place a rangeblock, consider not allowing them to use the talk page, and consider blocking 2602:FFF6:F:0:0:0:0:0/48 as well. Drmies (talk) 21:39, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
Unfortunately the range cannot be blocked, as it would take out a large portion of the trwiki community. The IPv6/48 looks stale now. – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:54, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

Status:    Done

This IP address was blocked back in 2014 for "webhost Avante Hosting Services + 198.52.217.44". It appears that the IP address in question has been rotated to different users. Charwinger21 (talk) 07:01, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Specifically, the range was assigned to Carrytel (an ISP) on 2018-05-23. Charwinger21 (talk) 09:19, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Is MCC214 kidding about /32? Some half-year ago I requested his /40—that is, 28 times smaller—and yet the block was denied. Lurk in archives and learn which range size is typical for a blocked IPv6. Incnis Mrsi (talk) 18:29, 19 December 2018 (UTC)

There is a shocking amount of abuse from that range, but it seems to have stopped in December. If it starts up again, please let us know (and feel free to ping me - that might allow for a faster response time). – Ajraddatz (talk) 19:49, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

(or 107.175.0.0/16 xwiki-contribs xwiki-date ST IP info WHOIS robtexgblockglistabuselogipchecker)

At meta I am seeing constant spambot infringements from within the /16, and I see that we have previously blocked the /16 before, though when I do some IP checks they seem to be separate /17s though both still seem to be server colo sets. GUC doesn't show that a block would be problematic, so I am asking for both /17s to have an extended block time, maybe a couple of years if that isn't problematic for logged in users (unknown and may be worth checking for account spambots anyway). Thanks or the consideration.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:56, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: GUC works on subnets again? I get 0 results.   — Jeff G. ツ please ping or talk to me 18:21, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
GUC won't show either abusefilter and spamblocklist hits or deleted contributions, and who knows what accounts may be are created within those two ranges. I do know what I see, hence the report, and we do know that there is a history with these ranges.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:46, 1 December 2018 (UTC)

Global block for 184.147.31.254 (Bell Canada vandal)

Status:    Done

Hello.
This is the new IP of the Bell Canada vandal, a cross-wiki long-term abuser using Bell Canada IP since (at least) November 2017. The last report is Steward requests/Global/2019-01#Global block for 184.147.29.17 2 (with a global block done by Vituzzu).
Moreover: please remember that at one time the associated IP ranges were globally blocked for 6 months (70.31.124.0/22, 74.12.120.0/22, 184.146.204.0/22, 184.147.28.0/22) and that the user has resumed the vandalisms just after the end of the global blocks, so I suggest a new global block for 184.147.28.0/22.
Regards --NicoScribe (talk) 08:59, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

@Tegel: thank you for the global block of 184.147.31.254 (and your reverts). What do you think of my suggestion for a new global block of the range 184.147.28.0/22? Since the end of the previous global block of the range (21 December 2018), the vandal is the unique user of this range, and has used 184.147.29.17 for 816 edits in 28 projects (between 1 and 14 January 2019), and has used 184.147.31.254 for 336 edits in 23 projects (between 24 and 26 January 2019). --NicoScribe (talk) 22:23, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Status:    Done

This is the wifi given out by Scotrail trains. While it may be wise to block it to those not logged in, it's rather inconvenient to catch logged-in users in the net of a global block. There may be reasons you want to keep it blocked, but I'd find it convenient if I can edit Wikipedia while on the train. Adam Cuerden (talk) 14:21, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

@There'sNoTime: Just received in IRC (#wikimedia-stewards) a second request for removal. Could we please remove this block, it seems problematic that two long term users are affected. If nothing else, a soft block would seem more appropriate.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:23, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Comment Comment Has resumed. Geraldo Perez (talk) 07:05, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
@Ajraddatz: GUC is loading today. In the history of this vandal, one big step has been the global blocks of 4 associated IP ranges (70.31.124.0/22, 74.12.120.0/22, 184.146.204.0/22, 184.147.28.0/22) for 6 months from June 2018/July 2018 until December 2018/January 2019. Since this big step:
  1. The vandal has gone back to 184.147.28.0/22 (with 184.147.29.17 for 816 edits and 184.147.31.254 for 334 edits). Then you have blocked 184.147.28.0/22 again, for 1 month.
  2. The vandal has gone back to 74.12.120.0/22 (with 74.12.122.116 for 153 edits).
  3. The vandal has gone to a never-blocked-range (that the vandal has already used during the "big step") 184.147.48.0/22 (with 184.147.50.98 for 80 edits).
  4. The vandal has gone back to 184.146.204.0/22 (with 184.146.206.144 for 163 edits).
Since (at least) November 2017 there have been several thousands vandalisms done by this vandal, which is almost the unique user of the 5 associated IP ranges...
When a vandal switches between IP within the same range, the stewards block the IP range. Here, the vandal switches between 5 IP ranges, because there is always at least one of them which is not blocked. So, is it possible to block the 5 IP ranges (70.31.124.0/22, 74.12.120.0/22, 184.146.204.0/22, 184.147.28.0/22, 184.147.48.0/22) at the same time and for the same duration? -NicoScribe (talk) 10:24, 17 February 2019 (UTC)
Done...ish. I've re-blocked the three actively abused ranges for six months. I'll hold off on the other two until further vandalism happens. There is some legitimate activity on all of the ranges, in particular on the two unblocked, so I want to apply as light a touch as possible while recognizing the long-term nature of this abuse. – Ajraddatz (talk) 07:18, 19 February 2019 (UTC)

Status:    Not done

I like to occasionally improve Wikipedia pages so I was sad to see the following message today:

You are currently unable to edit Wikipedia. Editing from your IP address range (173.244.44.0/24) has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 02:32, April 8, 2023 by Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org) for the following reason: hosting service generating spam from 173.244.44.19 This block began on 02:32, April 8, 2018 You can contact @Vituzzu: to discuss the block and you may make unblock requests or file appeals at meta:Steward requests/Global. Your current IP address is 173.244.44.38. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

I assume this may be because I'm using the popular VPN known as Private Internet Access (PIA). I don't want to be required to turn off my VPN in order to contribute to Wikipedia. Perhaps we could just block the offending IP, 173.244.44.19, mentioned above?

--DavidCDrake (talk) 04:21, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

@DavidCDrake: I'd encourage you to apply for (a global) IP block exemption (see SRGP). Because of the abuse potential of VPN's in general, and the spam observed, we generally have a blanket policy of no open proxies.--Jasper Deng (talk) 22:44, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

...Edit conflict...
Hello (and thank you to Tomybrz).
This is the new IP of the Bell Canada vandal, a cross-wiki long-term abuser using Bell Canada IP since (at least) November 2017. The last report is Steward requests/Global/2019-02#Global block for 184.146.206.144 (Bell Canada vandal).
@Ajraddatz: in the last report, you blocked 3 IP ranges until 19 August 2019 (out of the 5 known ranges: 70.31.124.0/22, 74.12.120.0/22, 184.146.204.0/22, 184.147.28.0/22, 184.147.48.0/22) and you said "I'll hold off on the other two until further vandalism happens". I do not know whether you remember my idea to block the ranges "at the same time and for the same duration", so I suggest a global block for 184.147.48.0/22 until 19 August 2019.
Regards --NicoScribe (talk) 16:14, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

@Tomybrz: Sad to hear that harrassment issue, but instead of lock your can use wikibreak enforcer. Just use it in global js to be effective on all wikis, also please carefully fill the time since after that you will not be able to change until it expires. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 12:11, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Locks do not have expiration settings. Further, self-lock requests are nearly always declined. If you are unable to simply logout and not log back in for a week, the wikibreak enforcer 1997kB linked above should work in your global.js. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 13:40, 1 February 2019 (UTC)

Can't see any significant activity outside zhwiki for the sockpuppets listed above. Local indefs should be enough for that.--無聊龍 (talk) 23:45, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
Issue of whether to global lock or not for this case doesn't depend on crosswiki activity, it depends on are they socks of globally locked users or not. They clearly are, User:冏. --Cohaf (talk) 03:34, 30 January 2019 (UTC)

Global lock for Satoshi Kondo/WorldCreaterFighter

Status:    Not done

After being blocked indefinitely in the English-language Wikipedia because of his massive abuse of sockpuppets and persistent POV edits, he switches to the German Wikipedia and got blocked indefinitely there for massive spamming. Hee keeps creating accounts and edits both with IPs and new sockpuppets for years since 2015, as the List in the English-language Wikipedia of Vanjagenije, Sro23 and GeneralizationsAreBad shows it. --Sonra Mint (talk) 17:11, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

Sonra Mint is itself a sock puppet of user de:Benutzer:Dribbler and blocked in german wikipedia(Special:CentralAuth/Sonra Mint). And i do not know how often i have to say this: I am not WorlCreaterFighter. Look at my english talkpage. I have made a list of my former socks.(talkpage) I have also said that I will not work on these topics anymore. Sonra Mint is possibly related to some of them, as he/she is a confirmed sock aswell. Btw. User Tomurtogo is blocked as sock of Tigril(Tirgil34). Satoshi Kondo (talk) 11:17, 7 November 2018 (UTC)
He(or she) is possibly an albanian user, 310 edits on albanian wiki, also blocked on netherland wiki for sockpuppetry... Satoshi Kondo (talk) 11:08, 7 November 2018 (UTC)

Why am I listed here? I just saw the message in Wiki. Please take me from that list. I have nothing to do with this, or am related with this sock in any way. Regards, Akocsg (talk) 17:09, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Global lock for Black magic specialist Spambot LTA socks

Status:    Done

Obvious socks of the "Black magic specialist" spammer LTA. The newest sock is at the top of the list. Recently, this spammer has been link hijacking inside of articles, replacing legitimate links with spam links to their own "black magic" sites. (There is also some cross-wiki spamming.) A global edit filter (if possible) should be set up to block all edits from non-admins linking those spam domains, in main space articles. Stewards should also consider adding these naming patterns to an account creation filter (at least flag the names as spambots if the account creation is not blocked). Please check the newest account for sleepers and Globally Block the underlying IPs, since this spambot is known for leaving behind a mass sockfarm whenever they show up.

Global lock for LTA Tamara787/Angela Criss socks

Status:    Done

Lock all:

Obvious socks of the cross-wiki LTA Angela Criss/Tamara787, also known as the "Alan Jackson vandal". This LTA persistently vandalizes articles related to Alan Jackson cross-wiki, in addition to trolling/attacking other users (especially User:TenPoundHammer). Please Lock the socks, and also check for sleepers (he usually generates plenty of socks). Please also Globally + Locally Rangeblock the underlying IPs (you should also check the recent string of socks active here), since this user persistently socks cross-wiki (and on Meta) and attacks other people. Some of this user's IPs were rangeblocked last year (I've listed most of them above) - it looks like some of them should be reblocked for a much longer duration.
