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)

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)

Ip address block[edit]

Please I just log in only to be told my ip address has been blocked on all wikis. Please what has gone wrong and what have I done? Please someone should help rectify this issue for me. Alhaj Darajaati (talk) 18:10, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

Green Giant[edit]

Why was I blocked? I always edited right, I always provided the sources, I never vandalized here, is that serious? that's what I get, how nice of you. Come on, seriously, am I just going to have to go a year without editing? Was it because of the comment that I put a link to the source? It was just to show that I wasn't putting lies there, this was confirmed man, I'm really sorry for that, but seriously? I am really upset about this situation, did I always do everything right to be blocked by a litte mistake? Please check if there is something wrong with that, because if I don’t start editing soon again, I won’t be back in a year or so, please man, or if this is resolved or i StragerMan123 will cease to exist. Thank you!

Well, it looks like it was just a mistake, I've already been unlocked, well, thank you very much, if I did something wrong I promise I won't repeat it.

Time to remove the draft[edit]

As this is a explanatory/pointer document that we already have translated, let us stop it being a draft. Any issues that anyone has? All minor changes can flow through normal editing processes.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:28, 12 April 2021 (UTC)

It does not capture all cases when global blocks are used. Ruslik (talk) 20:41, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
