Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Saschaporsche, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing!

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Saschaporsche,

I wanted to ask for your help. As you may be aware we have been running banners on many language wikis. We have a lot of new content this year and I really want to conduct a thorough review of our translations. This is a combination of feedback from the community, readers, donors as well as those with professional translator experience. This will help us ensure the highest quality of translations used in our messaging.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to give us feedback for Dutch using This Link

Simply follow the simple instructions on that page and if you have any questions feel free to contact me on my talk page.

Many Thanks

"Unblock" is a local request to local administrators, so we cannot assist you with a request for a block at Commons, nor a global block managed by the stewards, there is nothing in our control. Please read the information at special:mylanguage/Global blocks/FAQ.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:03, 31 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the quick reply billinghurst. But it is quite strange that on the Meta help page on this there is at the bottom under "appeal Options" a section that states: If you suspect that you aren't editing from a blocked proxy, you can request that the IP be rechecked placing the {{unblock}} template on your talk page.
So that's why i placed this request on this page!

Someone's recent edit is incorrect advice. I have reverted that text.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:01, 1 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, i assume you mean this change: [1]. But there is no "alert" section on the page "WikiProject on open proxies". So your change is not correct at the moment.
f.y.i. i've done a request for a global IP exempt on Steward requests/Global permissions

@Saschaporsche and Billinghurst: Hello, as the block log states, the IP you were editing from was blocked as it was an open proxy. It has been blocked since October 2019 - if you are not actively using a VPN service perhaps you enabled en:iCloud Private Relay. I have gone ahead and restored the changes on the help page as global proxies are generally both globally and locally blocked, meaning that posting the unblock template on a user talk page would be the correct appeal method should the proxy block be incorrect - particularly due to the fact that users without an account won't be able to edit elsewhere.

Dear Jon, Thanks for the tip on en:iCloud Private Relay, i switched it off and now the problem is solved!
May be it would be handy to insert this tip somewhere for users that are suddenly blocked. It did take me several hours to investigate how to deal with this problem of suddenly being blocked. had i know this earlier, i would have been happier a lot earlier.
