This page is for discussions related to the Global locks page.
Please remember to:
Can I add the following content: "Accounts have performs abuse on multiple wikis and have been blocked on one of those wiki?"
I've seen several accounts that've been locked on every Wikimedia projects for bad behaviours on multiple wikis. But, each account that've been globally locked had to be historically blocked on multiple wikis (the wikis which they'd contributed before they got blocked). Those facts have led to one of those requirements for a global lock for an account: First, their behaviours needs to be bad, and the second is that: the user has to be blocked on one of those wikis that they've contributed. Up to this date, I'm probably about to be the next user that is globally locked without meeting one of those requirement, therefore I've created a consensus to add the requirement for global locking.

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)
