Incorrect link on banned Open Proxy IP popup[edit]

NOP Edit Ban Popup screenshot.png

The popup which appears when user on a banned Open Proxy IP attempts to edit contains an incorrect link. Screenshot below.

The term Open Proxies in the "reason" box should link to WP:NOP, but (when viewed on Wikipedia) it links to [[1]] (which is a disambig page).

I'd be more than happy to make this edit—but I'm not sure if this is a user-editable template. If it is, could somebody point me to it? Thanks!

Because User:Jon Kolbert didn't add a >m: prefix when he did a global block. Our system message use the m: prefix but he wrote the summary by himself. Stryn (talk) 09:05, 7 January 2020 (UTC)

Global locks and global blocks are different, but what happens in a global lock? Can it be unlocked?

Obviously can. I don't see a clear request. X mark.svg Not done--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 15:20, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
Comment Comment: only stewards can perform global locks/blocks, while administrators could not perform those actions. CentralTime301 (Discussion/Contributions) 19:14, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

Mention the criteria for global blocks as either cross wiki abuse or vandalism or spam, or global block or lock evasion. 2600:387:5:805:0:0:0:88 10:19, 20 June 2020 (EDT)
