Enthusiastic though unhelpful IP range global block suggestions
It is a while since I have had a look at SRG and can I say that there are some whilst trying to be helpful are simply too enthusiastic, and ultimately clagging the board with requests that simply cannot be managed successfully. An IP block on a /16 for all wikis is a significant issue, and generally only would only be undertaken when imperative and following a significant amount of checking. For stewards there are many holes in what they can see easily, and a range on one wiki can be quiet, yet on another wiki can be busy, especially with regional IPs, and differing languages. In the end, some vandalism and some spam will get through, and we can manage it, and blocking blocking blocking large ranges for small visual benefit is usually problematic when we have legitimate people blocked from editing.
- As some assistance to stewards I have looked at some of the broad range block requests. These are edits from a Taiwanese mobile phone provider for edits at enWP, jaWP, and zhWP. These wikis are best able to determine how they manage their IP editors from Taiwan, and generally don't require steward's interventions. [Think of all the admins that they have compared to how many stewards we have.] These wikis are also able to escalate to stewards as they see fit for their requirements. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:04, 5 November 2019 (UTC)
IP is blocked
I do not understand why my IP is blocked, it's a shame that I can't have any explication "Votre adresse IP fait partie d’une plage d’adresses bloquée sur tous les wikis. Le blocage a été fait par Jon Kolbert (meta.wikimedia.org). Le motif donné est Open Proxy: Colocation webhost - Contact stewards if you are affected . Début du blocage : 27 octobre 2019 à 03:54 Expiration du blocage : 27 octobre 2022 à 03:54 Vous pouvez contacter Jon Kolbert pour discuter du blocage" I had never use VPN or so --Kayheart (talk) 15:27, 26 November 2019 (UTC)
