Non "clear-cut" global locks vs. steward COI and local policies

FYI: A current case reported at en:Wikipedia:Wikipedia Signpost/2023-06-19/In the media and discussed on the talk page there raises policy questions about global locks, including how they may relate to Stewards policy#Avoid conflicts of interest and Stewards policy#Check local policies. (TL;DR: A steward globally locked an account for actions on the steward's home wiki, with a rationale that appears to match none of the usual "clear-cut situations" listed at Global locks#Reasons to request a global lock, and with the user having been active on other wikis besides the steward's home wiki.) Not sure what the best location is for discussion about this; for better or worse it is right now happening on that page on enwiki, one of the projects affected by that particular global lock.

Global lock for German "Freifunk" IP addresses – why?

This discussion was misplaced here and is now at Talk:Global_blocks#Global_block_for_German_"Freifunk"_IP_addresses_–_why?.


How global locks works. And about the message on top of the contribution page saying "This account is globally locked. See global account details for more information", how is this achieved? Toadette (chat) 10:13, 26 September 2023 (UTC)[reply]
