2016 Community Wishlist Survey[edit]


You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)Reply

IP block problem[edit]

Hello. Per your question:

  1. Your account is now globally exempt from IP blocks;
  2. As part of protecting Wikimedia projects from anonymous vandalism, at times we are forced to block ranges of IP addresses. Due to the dynamic nature of IP addressing, these blocks may sometimes affect innocent users as well. The global block you mention is not directed at you personally, and the reason why you cannot edit or create an account is that your IP, or the range in which your IP falls, was previously used by someone to vandalize a Wikimedia project or projects and was blocked to protect that project or projects. Please see also Global blocks/FAQ for more information.
  3. You should not be affected by blocks anymore but if you do experience further problems, don’t hesitate to ask on my talk page.

I hope that helps. Green Giant (talk) 16:32, 21 May 2018 (UTC)Reply
