Good to see your name[edit]

It is very good to see your name again on my meta watchlist :) TonyBallioni (talk) 23:29, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

@TonyBallioni: Thank you for the kind words. I've had to prioritise my work life but will try to be on a lot more in the future. Green Giant (talk) 22:47, 3 January 2019 (UTC)


Hello I don’t now how and why but I tried to log on into Wikipedia and it says that my IP got blocked by you!? Why did you block me?? Best regards Paul Ullrich Goonpu (talk) 19:43, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

@Goonpu: Hi. I don't know which IP you were trying to log in from (although I can find this out but curiosity on my part is not an acceptable reason to do so). In order to protect Wikimedia projects from anonymous vandalism, sometimes we have to block ranges of IP addresses. Due to the dynamic nature of IP addressing, these blocks sometimes affect innocent users such as yourself. The block you mention is not directed at you personally, and the reason why you cannot login is that your IP, or the range in which your IP falls, was previously used by someone to vandalize one or more Wikimedia projects and was blocked to protect that project(s).
If you have another account already (and I'm just guessing you do), please contact the local administrators of your project and ask whether or not you are eligible for the ipblock-exempt group. If they assign you that group, please log in to your account and check if you can edit. If you still cannot edit, please get back to me with your wiki username so it can be investigated further.
Please also see the Global blocks/FAQ for more information. I hope you find this information useful, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have further questions or inquiries. Green Giant (talk) 20:37, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
