Dear Sir/Madam, you have blocked my IP address range (, marked "your current IP address is" for "Long-term abuse" Would you please tell me what seems to be the problem here? I am not aware of any "abuse", I am doing proper historical research, I cite all sources. I spent quite some in libraries to find out about this forgotten general. Now that I am retired, I can afford to do so. Isn't wikipedia supposed to be about extending knowledge?

Yours sincerely,


You can contact Ruslik0 to discuss the block and you may make unblock requests or file appeals at meta:Steward requests/Global.

Round 2 Re-submission of proposal[edit]

Hi there Ruslik,

I have decided to reapply for the Round 2 of the 2016 Project Grant applications.

I selected to create a new proposal, and it seemed to simply overlay the new information on the old application page, therefore leaving my updates and revisions on the Round 2 version attached to the "Past Proposals" link to the application.

Do you know how I would get this updated version bumped into the "Current Proposal" sections?


Why did you block me? Contact me-

Blocked IP[edit]


You have blocked an IP address range including mine from editing. This is not due to my edits, so must be from due to user on the same ISP. Is it Wikipedia policy to block the IP range for an entire ISP because one of its users broke the rules?

Me too! I’ve also been blocked from editing a page.

You are currently unable to edit Wikipedia.

Editing from your IP address range ( has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 20:40, 28 October 2019 by Ruslik0 ( for the following reason:

Long-term abuse

This block began on 20:40, 28 October 2018 - I don't understand why I am blocked, the phrase "long-term abuse" can never be dedicated to me.

Block IP[edit]


I have just logged into my account after moving to Israel and have discovered my entire IP range has been blocked. This seems somewhat excessive?

"Your current IP address is, and the blocked range is Please include all above details in any queries you make."

--Urbanplay (talk) 17:29, 16 June 2018 (UTC) This happened to me as well. Maybe this is due to the fact that I use an USB-stick for my internet access. Please unblock this IP asap because I have not misused Wiki in any way. The error message was: "Deine aktuelle IP-Adresse ist und der gesperrte Bereich ist Bitte beziehe alle obigen Einzelheiten in all deinen Anfragen ein."

-- Must ask you 'cause I can't understand why you blocked my IP Hope you answer to me. good day!


I am user en:User:Boiagiallo-edits: I made several edits in and, but unlogged IP, during April 2013 for to improve and to start several articles regarding Italian food and related articles. I used a computer in a public location en:User talk: obvious that computer, and related IP, was in charing use with other users, but an Italian admin globally locked my account [Boiagiallo], wich is used by me alone. I leave a post in Italian discussion of admin, but he ignored me. Admin was looking for other editors, who edit in articles regarding history and sports, but those users are not my friends and I don't know them! If you global unlock [Boiagiallo], I can continue to improve many articles in many languages: articles regarding Italian food and related articles! I made request here. Now I can not log in: my actual and dinamic IP is


Another sock of INeverCry. Creates an account and immediately starts deletion requests like other socks.


Everyone... Let me talk...

It all started in 2014/2015 (I think) when I created a Wikipedia account. I was exaggerating the sizes of UY Scuti at the time. I now know that UY Scuti is only 1,708 ± 192 solar radii.

I came back in June 2017. I wanted to help make useful contributions to the encyclopedia. Everything turned out well for the first 2-3 months. However, things changed. Some users started to argue against me, especially when it came to star sizes.

Then, when I tried to introduce more information, the other users didn't like it and started to want to get me blocked. They succeeded. Why would they pick on me? Yes, why me? Why are they always saying that everyone else is right (not in the case of wikipedia:WP:TRUTH, but in encyclopedic contribution terms) and I am wrong?

But things took a turn for the worse. My archnemesis, Sasha Primerov, started insulting me on . He got both of us blocked indefinitely as a result. My niece, friend, and archnemesis made their own Wikipedia accounts on my computer without my consent. My niece was making disruptive edits to wikipedia:List of largest stars, my friend was editing in bible verses even though it is vandalism, and my archnemesis was making personal attacks. All of our accounts got involved in a sockpuppet investigation and all of them were banned, and my account was globally locked. All of this is the truth.


Please, in 4 months, let me come back. Please unlock my account and inform an administrator to unblock me. Not now, but in 4 to 5 months, to complete the wikipedia:Wikipedia:Standard offer.

My only intention was to help build an encyclopedia. I really don't want to be globally locked. After all, Wikipedia is «the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.»

I don't hate the people who think that I am wrong and that I should be blocked. I actually like all of you, guys. Just please let me contribute to the encyclopedia.

Please, I promise to never let anyone make a Wikipedia account on my computer again. I also promise that I will avoid the behavior that got me blocked at all times and make useful contributions.

Please, give me a second chance. I am just a teenager living in wikipedia:Russia, and I want to make Wikipedia more reliable than it is today.

I am very sorry for the incidents and thank you very much, in advance.

Reason for IP blocking?[edit]

Hello, Ruslik,

I've been informed, that my IP address ( from the blocked range is currently blocked by you since 20.07.18. May you detalize, what is meant by "Long-term abuse" in my case? Is this a problem of my mobile internet operator - and if so, may it be resolved in some more sophisticated way?

Unblock request[edit]

I think there has been a mistake with a block you initiated against my IP range (2600:387:A:19:0:0:0:0/64), I’ve been using my account for the past couple of years and I would like it to be unblocked.Fundude99 (talk) 04:46, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

unblock please[edit]

Hi Rusliko

Blocked for long term abuse? I have no idea what this refers to as I don't ever recall abusing anything or anyone. I am a professional high energy theoretical physicist and take the core values of wikipedia very seriously. So please provide an explanation as to 'why' you blocked me, my IP is Secondly, please unblock me asap.

Thank you, Wakabaloola

This block affects all unregistered users in this range, not specifically you. There were reasons to block this range. You can create an account (from a different range) and use it without any problem. Ruslik (talk) 08:47, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

OK. Thank you for the explanation. There must be a better way to accomplish the desired outcome than simply blocking everyone in the entire range; but I guess there must be a good reason, otherwise you wouldn't be doing it over and over again. Anyway, thanks. Wakabaloola

Emergency in KaWiki[edit]

Dear steward,
Please read my explanation thoroughly. It is about an inexorable situation in the Georgian Wikipedia, the long-established. Every attempt to solve the problem locally fails again and again. So, please, do not be indifferent.
The requests are extraordinary, so I do not write on a general page, but personally.

Несколько вопросов по OAuth[edit]

Здравствуйте. Прошу прощения за беспокойство. Пишу вам как единственному русскоговорящему администратору OAuth. Ибо уж очень сложно задавать вопросы со скудным знанием языка на тему, которую я понимаю весьма туманно.

  1. Как работает глобальная авторизация («Все проекты»)? Access token я получаю при первоначальном обращении, например, к endpoint’у Меты, а на Edit token я могу при необходимости обменять его уже в любом проекте и неограниченное число раз?
  2. У access token есть какое-то время истечения?
  3. В правилах для приложений прописан запрет на одностраничные js-приложения «почти без back-end’а». Если у меня именно такое приложение, но авторизация через OAuth будет выполняться через php (соответственно и private key приложения юзер получить не может), такое не противоречит правилам?

Вопросы созрели в связи с желанием перевести прогу в веб для независимости от платформы. Очень ранняя заготовка для понимания принципа. Заранее спасибо!—Iluvatar (talk) 13:25, 8 October 2018 (UTC)

Я не знаю таких деталей. Я не разработчик. Ruslik (talk) 06:13, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

Inadvertently caught in a range block[edit]

Hi, Ruslik0 - the same range block (2600:387:0:0:0:0:0:0/48) that got me on en.Wikipedia is preventing me from doing my work on Commons. Will you please exclude my iPad IP on Commons? META and OTRS appear to be ok, Fish and karate got en.WP working again, so Commons is the last one. Thanks in advance. Atsme📞📧 03:06, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

LTA Avoided ?[edit]

Hi, you blocked User:Bundesministerium der Finanzen Support globally. Did you notice this is a confirmed account at de:wiki from the Webmasters of the en:Federal Ministry of Finance (Germany)? I was in contact with them and I really do not think that was another boring account by Avoided. @DerHexer: Would you please counter-check? --Pentachlorphenol (talk) 19:20, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

I locked based on this request. It was not the only account with the same IP. Ruslik (talk) 19:29, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
So you can confirm this account definitely is from Avoided? It was confirmed via OTRS at de-wiki. @Schniggendiller: I do not think this is correct so far. If I am wrong and this single account really does belong to the LTA complex, Avoided would be able to create confirmed accounts using Federal office's names - which should be reported to German law enforcement. --Pentachlorphenol (talk) 19:38, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
Behavior of this account does not look constructive. Ruslik (talk) 19:45, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
I agree. Advertising and lack of knowledge on how-to-behave-at-Wikipedia. I contacted them (borderline impolite and disrespectful) and I did receive a signed E-Mail of the company which does the website for the Ministry of Finance. Sender was No signs of hijacked IPs or cracked accounts in the headers. --Pentachlorphenol (talk) 19:54, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
Gosh, this is probably my fault. In Log/newusers, the name was hidden by Regi51 (he usually does this with Avoided socks). When I check Log/newusers, I protect user pages & user talk pages of indef’d users. Since at the point of time I checked Bundesministerium der Finanzen Support wasn’t blocked anymore, I had to notice that this account is probably not an Avoided sock (not to mention his contribs, which are not typical for Avoided). I can’t tell why I didn’t notice this.
Please, Ruslik, could you have a look at the checkuser result again? If typical Avoided accounts were created from this IP, well … Was it perhaps an IP from a federal German agency? Even in Federal German agencies there work some %&§$"&&&.
Sorry for the confusion created.
Not my week
Regards --Schniggendiller (talk) 20:16, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
I unlocked it. Ruslik (talk) 20:50, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
Thank you.
Ftr: Presumably the reason why this account was initially blocked (by Regi51) was, that Avoided (or his impostor) often creates account names that seem to be "official" at first glance. But of course, there’s no "Bundesbahndirektion" since the Bundesbahn was privatised in the 90s – just to name one example.

Pleas unlock IP[edit]

Dear Rusliko, I tried to create an account to contribute to Wikipedia, but I got the reply that my IP adress is blocked, since it is part of the IP-range, due to long-term abuse. Since I have never worked with Wikipedia before, this seems to be a fault. Could you please unlock my IP? With many thanks in advance and best regards, Sebastian


@Ruslki0: Hello

You blocked the account above on the French Wiktionnary, for being one of mines. That is not correct, I have nothing to do with her. Two years ago, I was myself victim of a such a confusion with vandalist's accounts despite a negative checkusers. And it is for this very previous mistake that I was bloked this year on the French Wiktionnary.

Waiting for more acute investigations,
