Being blocked from editing Wikipedia[edit]

Hey, Jyothis. This's Chainwit from Thai Wikipedia, I have been contributing to Wikipedia on both English site and Thai site for about 3 months now. As I was trying reduce the time spent on my Wikipedia, I declared a messege on my User page on Thai Wikipedia (th:User:Chainwit.) saying I will not be around for a while. Since I still have some ongoing works and discussions with some users, I felt I need to declare this messege.

But for some reasons, as I logged back into my account again at around 18 00 (ICT) today to add infoboxes on several pages (becuase I really cant get away with Wikipedia!) It showed a messege saying I was blocked from editing by you.

The reason says: The reason given is Long-term abuse: Abused local network.

And some information you may required: Your current IP address is 223.24.190.116, and the blocked range is 223.24.188.0/22.

I am really skeptical of why am I blocked, or stated as "abused local network"? What does it even mean? Did I do something that "abused" the local network? I thought I was doing fine because no admins has ever remind me about "network abuse". Please let me know. I'm still a bit new here, so I am really appreciated to learn more about living here.

If I were wrong as stated, I would like to improve and prevent such problem to be happened again.

Note: As I read through your archive's talks page, I guessed my problem began after I logged into the WiFi of a public co-working space in Bangkok?

Apologies for the inconvenience, You appears to edit from the range where we have significant amount of spam activity. I have removed the global block for now and will revisit the blocks again in a bit. --Jyothis (talk) 23:06, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

Why on earth am I blocked?[edit]

There can be no valid reason for blocking me. Please unblock. The weird message mentioned your account so I'm leaving the message here. Thanks.--ব্যা করণ (talk) 16:14, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

I assume you got caught on one of my IP blocks - could you please email me your IP directly so that I can check what happened? --Jyothis (talk) 23:11, 23 February 2019 (UTC)

I am blocked[edit]

I have the same problem of being blocked while editing as mentioned by Chainwit. and ব্যা করণ. My IP is 103.58.74.238 and blocked range is 103.58.74.0/24 . সুমিত রায় (talk) 13:03, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Thanks I have removed the block for now. Do note that the small range you brought up has a number of bot/vandal accounts, so it is likely to get blocked again if the range gets abusive again. --Jyothis (talk) 22:46, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
