Actor Billing Page for Special List[edit]

Can we have a link from Actor Billing Page to a new page listing all the major actors that got billing like:

"Keifer Sutherland is the Designated Survivor" or "Sly Stalone is Rambo" etc.

Very few actors get this type of billing. Keifer just got it for his new show.

Open Proxies[edit]

Open proxies should not be blocked - what if someone wishes to contribute anonymously?

I don't know who this Vituzzu person is, but he has apparently assumed that VPN proxies - which I and millions of other Internet users employ to protect our privacy - are somehow a threat to Wikipedia. Calling a VPN endpoint a proxy isn't even technically correct, as it can only be access by authenticated paying customers of a particular VPN service. How sad that the Wikipedia organization has placed itself in the hands of petty despots like Vituzzu.

After around 750 contributions in Wikipedia in German language and a few in other languages I have been blocked by you. My contributions are always with the intention of improving wikipedia articles and I have uploaded several pictures improving the quality of many articles. I can not remeber over the years to act once as a vandal or that I have added spam to the articles that I have eddided. At two wikipedia sites I have created a profile and I am not really an anonymous person. Why are you blocking my IP adress - what is the sense behind ? -- 22:26, 10 June 2013 (UTC) User: de Giessauf_A en Giessauf_A

Hello Vituzzu! I got mixed up and tried to edit my page before registering my account. Sorry about that! Is it okay for me to start editing again?




Can you add the licence, otherwise it will be deleted again. Thanks, Yann 10:51, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Secondo me[edit]

Ciao Vito, mi dispiace questa tua risposta perché io non voglio nessun litigio. Volevo solo farti presente che la tua è stata, secondo me, una risposta offensiva a Pietrodn, che non «pretend to ignore what I'm [you're] referring to», tanto che scrive «us». Lui sa di che cosa stiamo parlando (ovviamente lo so anch'io), ma gradirebbe che spiegassi meglio agli altri (non membri di, magari) le tue accuse e su che cosa si basano (cfr. astensioni). Io non te lo chiedo, ma personalmente avrei preferito che rispondessi semplicemente che non vuoi farlo, non che chi te lo chiede finge di non sapere. Naturalmente posso avere interpretato male le tue parole, ma questa è l'impressione che ho avuto, tutto qui. Ciao, Nemo 07:50, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Ti prego, smettila di essere tanto insultante. Non ti fa onore, a mio modesto avviso. --Nemo 18:22, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Te devo di' 'na cosa[edit]

Abbandono wikipedia, la mia ribellione l'ho fatta, se vedi qualche nome strambo in giro sappi che non sono io, se non c'è una "K" o "W", "Y", "V" non è un SP mio. Mi sono sempre comportato bene, sempre, nella mia vita reale. Non ho intenzioni di far del male a wikipedia, ma siete voi che mi avete costretto. Ho intenzione di chiedere un bel SCUSA grande grande, sia per il mio comportamento sciocco, sia perché ho intenzione di non avere nemici.

Vituzzu, please do not use your sysop or rollback tools on hr:wiki. Regards :-)) --Roberta F. 10:07, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

There is actually no written policy against that, because when we discussed about that it was decided that would be better to solve it in mediawiki code than with a policy, so conclusion was that we usually kindly ask global rollbackers to stay out of our project if they are also regular users on our project for obvious reasons, and also all global rollbackers as admins of hr wiki who revert vandals sometimes like not only to revert, but also block the vandal IP in question or cross check other Wikimedia projects (something like global rollbackers already do, but with additional admin or CU tools it is more efficient this way). If you need any more info, just ask here. Kind regards! SpeedyGonsales 21:45, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
...I removed some other spam manually, without using my rollback-tool, is there something wrong with that?
  • As you were not informed before there is no harm at all for you trying to help. I haven't checked actual edits, but if nobody complained and you acted as you wrote, no problem at all. I personally more like possible mediawiki solution as it is more clean and permanent, but if nothing changes in some due time, (most probably) I'll start new discussion as you suggested. Kind regards! SpeedyGonsales 22:38, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Ciao Vito! Vai a dare un'occhiata sulla wikipedia Venda, c'è un certo utente Azwifarwi che secondo me sta inserendo un bel po di materiale autopromozionale e SPAM riguardante lui e la sua famiglia. Guarda questo, questo, questo e questo; articoli che sembrano riguardare lui e i suoi familiari; ce ne sono poi altri ancora che sarebbero anche essi da cancellare, realizzati dallo stesso autore in versione però IP Inoltre l'utente usa anche "firmarsi" in alcuni dei suoi articoli. Tanti saluti! --Reder 17:05, 1 September 2011 (UTC)

Correggiendo un tuo errore, mi sono accorto che hai scelto di far richiesta come Steward. Indipendentemente dal fatto che tu possa diventarlo o no, ti faccio i miei auguri, perchè -nonostante (molte) mie incertezze sul passato- penso che tu sia la persona giusta. E questo, nel senso più "umano", lasciando perdere la parte tecnica, comunque importante. --Frigotoni ...i'm here; 14:37, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

en Wikibooks[edit]

Hello and thank you for your various interventions against vandals on en.wikibooks recently. In case you notice that I've changed your local permissions there I'd thought I'd explain what I've done. We use the FlaggedRevs extension and your global group memberships don't give you the rights to review pages. This leads to the situation where you rollback a bad edit and the page remains requiring a reviewer to accept your revision. To fix this I've added you to the Reviewer group locally so in future any rollback will also get automatically reviewed. If you want the rights removed please let me know. Kind regards QU TalkQu 17:48, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Ciao. Non vorrei disturbarti, ma ho bisogno di una delle tue perle di saggezza :)... Di recente mi è stato più volte suggerito di chiedere per il flag di global rollbacker. Riflettendoci, penserei che potrebbe essere davvero utile anche perchè comunque se dai un'occhiata qua, mi sono trovato bene. Poichè però tu mi conosci meglio rispetto degli altri, se tu pensi che non sia il caso, io non faccio richiesta. In ogni caso sarebbe gradita una risposta dal neosteward... Io comunque proseguirò con il crosswiki patroller.--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 12:39, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Hi Vituzzu,

I want to thank you for your help on Upper Sorbian Wikipidia against this vandal with IPs 113.*. We have got 2 active admins only, I am not an admin, so I can't delete pages or block vandals.

Well, once more, thank you for your help. --Regards, --Michawiki 13:28, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Vito, pensavo entro questi giorni di chiedere il flag di global rollback. Volevo inoltre specificarti, che lo userei solo nelle small wiki (anche perchè in quelle più grandi ho quello locale). In questo modo su .it continuerò ad usare la LiveRc (l'ho fatto ieri, non posso farlo domani?) fintantochè non riceverò il flag anche su .it (ma lascio a te decidere su questo). Mi dai un tuo ultimo parere e dopo ti giuro che non ti rompo più i cabasisi (scn, ho usato google translate) :)?--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 19:51, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
La verità è che quando uno ha a carico tutti quei blocchi, è chiaramente spacciato. Da un'occhiata agli altri edits usati con il rollback negli altri progetti: fanno davvero così schifo? Mi rendo conto però che non riuscirò mai, anche se sono in buona fede, a far si che sia considerato bene su .it wiki. Non capisco proprio. Adesso però penso sia giusto prendersi una pausa; e riflettere sull'ultimo periodo, anche se credo, saranno in pochi a sentire la mia mancanza. Stammi bene, ciao.--Frigotoni ...i'm here; 05:42, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Based on the results of the vote, according to the percentage obtained, ensure that you have been elected as a steward. Hopefully you can carry out the mandate of the international community with the wise and prudent.

Personally I am very pleased and proud with the results you achieve. Let us work to advance the Wikimedia Foundation. Regards. Wagino 20100516 00:58, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Congratulations and welcome new steward![edit]

Get ready to be vandalized!

Welcome to the team. As you already know great access come with great responsibilities, so lets talk about some of the places you should have access but you may not have yet (yes, that means you need to ask someone). Being a new steward myself, I also do not know all of them or what I know might be wrong. This is just a personal congratulation message from me to you and the purpose is to introduce (yet again, yes!) with my damn good helping intention and irritating sense of humor!

You all have been added to steward list and chart here on Meta by me (please check if I have screwed myself there). You are eligible to make your intrusion to private IRC channels #wikimedia-checkuser and #wikimedia-privacy. You should have the access already, but if you do not have it yet please bother Barras or DerHexer for your bit (and aye, you should have a registered nickname with a cloak for that). You also have the right to have an account on some private wikis like steward wiki and checkuser wiki (to vandalize of course). Pardon me Your Majesty, but I have no damn idea about who to ask for access in these wikis, ask an existing steward instead. And last but not least, checkuser-l (yell at Mardetanha or Matanya for access) and stewards-l (pay Dungodung for the access) are two private mailing lists that you should have access to screw each other privately.

Thank you very much for being patient!
Pardon me in case you already know all of these!

Lets shut up and abuse our gumdrop buttons!

An open call from Tanvir the no0b stew!
Thursday, 40th week of the Anno Domini 2011, 20:15
Do not think you have been promoted yesterday, actually it is the correct standard time in Papeete! o.O

Because of my troublesome flash memory, I forgot to tell you that I have shoved you in StewardBot's brain, but not in its mouth so you might not get the ping, but it will remember you as a steward. To get the pings with !steward and @steward you have to pay Dungodung again (it is a shame I know)! — Tanvir | Talk ] 07:30, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Congratulazioni, caro amministratore![edit]

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | Nederlands | português | русский | edit

Un offerta per il nostro nuovo amministratore da parte dei suoi colleghi... (il nostro budget è meno sostanzioso di quello di Commons)

Congratulazioni, Vituzzu! Hai appena ricevuto i diritti di amministratore su Meta. Fermati un attimo a leggere la pagina Meta:Administrators e metti in watchlist le pagine correlate (in particolare Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, e Meta:Requests for deletion, ma anche Talk:Spam blacklist e Talk:Interwiki map) prima di lanciarti nelle cancellazioni, protezioni, blocchi account o nelle modifiche di durata del blocco delle pagine. La maggiorparte delle azioni di amministratore sono reversibili per gli altri amministratori, eccetto le fusioni di cronologia che devono essere svolte con particolare attenzione.

Un consiglio: aggiungi Meta:Administrators' discussion index nella tua watchlist, questa pagina traccia le ultime attività nelle varie sezioni di molte pagine importanti.

É possibile comunicare con gli altri amministratori su IRC: #wikimedia-admin @ Puoi trovare su commons una guida all'adminship che potrebbe essere utile leggere, anche se non è completamente applicabile a Meta.

Infine controlla e/o aggiungi il tuo nick in Meta:Administrators#List of administrators e in Template:List of administrators.

ksh-Wikipedia needs your help[edit]

Hi Vituzzu, I am an administrator at ksh-Wikipedia. You helped us there yesterday by reversing vandalism. ksh-Wikipedia has this problem in the last couple of weeks. Plenty of pages are destroyed. This happens regularly and the contents of the pages is substituted by 1 sentence always containing the words "Harald Krichel". Is there a possebility to block saving this sentence? I don't know how to do this but maybe you can help us. ksh is just a small wikipedia and I can't watch edits around the clock. It would be kind of you to support us. Regards --BBKurt 16:03, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

RE: Abuse filter[edit]

Thanks for your help at gl.wikipedia with the abuse filter. It was very annoying to be constantly removing that text every day. Thanks a lot! --Toliño Fala aquí comigo 23:48, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

abuse filter @ bar.WP[edit]

Dear Vituzzu,

you installed an abuse filter at Bavarian Wikipedia. I started a discussion at our Stammtisch to see if our community wants this feature, but first we'd like to know what exactly this filter is doing. Could you please explain that here (in German, English or Italian)? Thank you, → «« Man77 »» [de]·[bar] 10:26, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Vituzzu, I'm very sorry that I had published the content of the filter. I didn't thought about the problem that Edgar might read it. I've deleted it now. Kind regards, -- 12:29, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

Ma si può sapere per quale astrusa motivazione ce l'avresti con me?[edit]

Perché mi hai bloccato? Cosa avrei fatto e cosa significa totallympics?

Se non mi sblocchi immediatamente sarò costretto appena il blocco scadrà a prendere dei provvedimenti perché ritengo che tu mi stia perseguitando senza alcun motivo. Sono disposto a chiudere un occhio se ti sbrighi a sbloccarmi.

E a chiedere scusa. 17:56, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Semplicemente condividi il pool di indirizzi con un noto spammer. Se effettui l'accesso non hai problemi, per il resto se ti devo prendere sul serio ti devo bannare per quanto scrivi quindi evito ;)

Thank you[edit]

But that user sockpuppets, and hewill keep changing his username and spamming my inbox here and at other wikis. I have to delete tens of emails from him whe he's at it. Its not just me but many other users who have been effected at English wikipedia in particular, inclusing RolandR, Nishidani, Nableezy,among others. He also vandalizes article pages we edit, and our user pages. I'm not sure I can enable my email again without having to waste time cleaning up after him as he comes back in new incarnations (people see to think he was Grawp at, a serial abusive sosckpuppeter). Anyway, I appreciate your effort and that of Herby. I'll drop him a thank you note too. Happy editing. Tiamut 16:26, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Devo tuttavia dirti che purtroppola candidatura di Napoli è stata respinta in assemblea WMI questo fine settimana. Sulle ragioni non entro, magari ne parliamo in privato. Sono tuttavia determinato a portare Wikimania a Napoli in futuro, e mi fa piacere vedere che lo consideri una buona idea, in futuro avrò bisogno dell'appoggio che in questa occasione mi è mancato.--Ferdinando Scala 09:26, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Please unblock[edit]

it seems my IP address has been blocked because it has been categorized as public proxy server. this is IP address of a proxy but it is a company proxy server. Please advise

Ma non sono io lo spammer![edit]

Io lo so che secondo le tue informazioni top secret della CIA io ho lo stesso IP di un terribile spammer che - te lo assicuro io - non vive qui di fianco a me perché mi stupirei molto di trovare un super-spammer come vicino, ma tu continui a bloccarmi l'indirizzo IP e quindi non posso fare nulla. Io faccio l'accesso, ma non posso comunque fare nulla! Se provo a modificare una pagina mi dice: "Il tuo indirizzo IP è stato bloccato su tutte le wiki da Vituzzu ( Il motivo fornito è "Cross-wiki spam: totallympics/olympicfan". Il blocco scade il 19 dic 2011 alle 22:00." e non posso fare nulla!! Riesci a fare qualcosa per sbloccarmi l'utente perché vorrei poter contribuire senza essere continuamente bloccato, per cortesia?

Nuovo progetto[edit]

Ciao, scrivo a te in quanto secondo me, rivestendo il ruolo di steward e inoltre essendo di madrelingua italiana sei la persona più adatta ad ascoltarmi. Siccome io concentro il mio lavoro su ma spesso seguo e sono presente anche su altre versioni di Wikipedia nelle varie lingue regionali italiane, più o meno conosco il loro andamento e i loro problemi, tra cui su tutti la mancanza di utenti, mancanza quindi della materia prima necessaria per lo sviluppo di un progetto. Spesso e volentieri la maggior parte di questi progetti contano solo pochi utenti realmente attivi (che non sono quelli contati nella pagina delle statistiche, ma quelli che contribuiscono costantemente da tempo al progetto). Le comunità di queste wiki sono composte da pochissime persone e questo comporta una serie di problemi derivati che non si hanno su altre wiki che presentano comunità più consistenti. L’esiguo numero di partecipanti è un deficit non da poco, ed è secondo me il primo ostacolo da superare per poter far fare un salto di qualità a questi progetti. Ho pensato quindi di creare sulla falsariga di progetti quali Slavopedia e Scanwiki un nuovo progetto chiamato "Wikitaly". Il progetto si prefiggerebbe di coordinare tutti i progetti esistenti della Wikimedia Foundation nelle lingue regionali parlate sul territorio italiano. Questo progetto ha come obiettivo, quindi, quello di unificare tutte le comunità dei progetti interessati, per favorire una maggiore cooperazione tra di esse e un più rapido sviluppo dei vari progetti tramite una pianificazione oculata degli obiettivi da raggiungere volta per volta. Provvederei personalmente a informare ogni singolo progetto interessato e a nominare un responsabile per ognuno di esso che possa fare da portavoce principale del proprio progetto. Essendo Meta-Wiki un sito che si pone come obiettivo di coordinare tutti i progetti Wikimedia, questo sarebbe il posto perfetto dove realizzare il progetto. In tal proposito vorrei sentire un tuo parere a riguardo e cosa ne pensi del progetto. Tanti saluti e buon lavoro! --Reder 16:33, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Anche questo è vero, qualcuno potrebbe essere diffidente all'idea, temendo magari di vedere arrivare qualche "estraneo" a dettar legge nella propria wiki. So bene che solo chi lavora a un determinato progetto lo può conoscere a fondo, nei suoi difetti e nelle sue virtù, per questo il mio progetto seguirebbe lo stile "Unione Europea" dove c'è un'organismo centrale che controlla vari Paesi i quali però si governano e si gestiscono da soli. Gli utenti di ogni singole comunità potranno così stilare una lista di "cose da fare" e di determinati obiettivi da raggiungere nella propria wiki in piena autonomia, e il compito del mio progetto sarebbe quello di aiutarli nei loro intenti, concordando ogni azione, per migliorare ogni singola wiki. Oggettivamente non hanno molto da perdere; potrei fare quindi un sondaggio e vedere quante wiki sono interessate, cosa dici? --Reder 22:48, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Deleting requests to reverse your blocks[edit]

I request you stop doing that, isn't part of the value of the unblocking request process to get other authorities besides the blocker to weigh in on the blockees? Where in the policy does it support deleting the requests after only you have looked at them? 00:50, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

  • Also in response to "this template is not intended for global unlock request, there's an apposite page" what I am doing is an unblock request for this IP, I am not using the template to do an unlock request on a named account. I'm not sure what apposite page you mean, I am not familiar with all the templates or how to use them. I'm getting the hang of block=IP and lock=name though. 00:53, 28 December 2011 (UTC)

Request for adminship[edit]

Hello! I have requested admin rights Steward_requests/Permissions#Requests here at section ПешСай What are this issues and abuses? Why are you don't wont to grant me admin rights?--ПешСай 07:45, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for your quick request! Yes, there was a some problem in mhr wiki half a year ago. Most of the people who have wrote this rfc specifically came to mhr wiki to remove my adminship not because I was a bad admin. They were forced to do this by one person who dislikes me in real life. Look at recent changes at mhr wiki. All this users have gone, they don't do any significant edits in mhr wiki. Because their goal is not to develop mhr wiki. And this is pity.--ПешСай 19:09, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
In rfc there is one point in Conclusion section: Community and temporary admins shall write the report about the progress at Meta during the 6th month. I wonder, does anyone has wrote this report to Meta?--ПешСай 19:09, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
And the last question. What is the strong local consensus? I have wrote about my will to be admin in our local discussion page. But nobody has answered. What else should I do to become an admin? Is it possible for me to obtain temporary admin rights? I have uploaded some photos to mhr wiki with some unreadable names and wont to rename them, but unfortunately I can't do this without admin rights. And we don't have even one admin in mhr wiki to ask do this this. All four admins with temporary rights have expired, and they even didn't come to mhr wiki to check it out, and they haven't prolonged their rights. I have worked on mhr wiki since it was in incubator in 2009 and then I have been an admin for more than one year.--ПешСай 19:09, 21 January 2012 (UTC)


Please come on IRC. I need to talk to you asap. Thanks! Regards, Trijnstel 22:57, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Can you please post the result of my checkuser request? I'm asking because the request for adminship involved is approaching closing time. --viniciusmc 03:03, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Destructive IP address global blocking[edit]

Please be more careful when global-blocking whole IP address subnets (i.e. because you could prevent a lot of legit users from editing any Wikimedia wiki. Ekerazha 15:05, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Ti puoi lamentare col tuo provider che continua a fornire un servizio ad uno spammer. Fra l'altro se l'avessi fatto presente prima c'è un modo per evitarti ogni effetto collaterale, anzi se si dovesse ripetere è nel tuo interesse farlo presente. --Vituzzu 16:31, 31 January 2012 (UTC)
Probabilmente dovrebbe essere Wikimedia a segnalare gli spammer, io sono un soggetto terzo nella vicenda, potrei segnalare uno spammer che colpisse un mio sistema informativo, ma se lo spammer colpisce un sistema informativo di Wikimedia, la segnalazione dovrebbe essere di Wikimedia. Ti chiedo gentilmente di essere più cauto nel bloccare globalmente intere sottoreti di indirizzi IP, prediligendo il blocco di singoli indirizzi IP anche se dovessi notare che questi fanno parte di una stessa sottorete, in modo da limitare i danni collaterali (a maggior ragione quando il blocco è globale e vale per tutti i wiki di Wikimedia). Detto questo, mi sono accorto solo oggi del blocco che mi riguarda e ho tralasciato eventuali richieste di sblocco poiché esso scadeva proprio oggi. Ekerazha 18:57, 31 January 2012 (UTC)


Ciao Vito, grazie mille per la correzione e lo spostamento della pagina... Abituato come sono con ho messo utente anche qua :-) A presto!--D.B. 19:18, 31 January 2012 (UTC)


Ho completato l'unione degli account. Per quanto riguarda la segnalazione al provider, io non ricevo alcun danno diretto, ma vengo danneggiato da una reazione di Wikimedia ad un problema che non sussiste tra me e lo spammer bensì tra Wikimedia e lo spammer, quindi dovrebbe essere innanzitutto Wikimedia ad inoltrare una segnalazione ai provider interessati ed alle autorità competenti, anche perché io non posso conoscere tutti gli indirizzi IP interessati mentre Wikimedia possiede i log completi. Per quanto riguarda il blocco degli indirizzi IP, nel caso specifico mi sembra di aver visto dalla cronologia dei blocchi che era stato bloccato prima un determinato indirizzo IP e successivamente un'intera sottorete alla quale esso apparteneva (presumibilmente perché lo spamming continuava ad essere perpetrato attraverso altri indirizzi IP appartenenti alla medesima sottorete), ma volendo tentare di limitare il più possibile i danni collaterali, forse si sarebbe potuto continuare a bloccare altri indirizzi IP singoli lasciando il blocco di un'intera sottorete come extrema ratio, anziché ricorrere a quest'ultimo così rapidamente. Ovviamente non posso conoscere tutti i dettagli dell'episodio, quindi mi sono semplicemente affidato ad una gentile richiesta di estrema cautela, a costo del fatto che potesse essere superflua.

I noticed on en:wiki that you said user's coming here need understanding of this place. I agree. I said so, both at en:wiki, and at meta, a week ago, and more. As I said then, I have been appalled at some of the behavior of en:wiki admins here, but also appalled at the behavior of some admins on Meta. You may have little control or influence on what they do, but you probably have some influence over what goes on around here and user's understanding of this place. As Sj has suggested elsewhere there is something wrong, here, if this site does not make process and policy clear to users. This is especially true since this is a communication and coordination site for multiple projects. In short, you admins, collectively and the entire community here (of which I am a part) is responsible for making Meta easy to understand. So, the purpose of this post is to suggest that being able to point users to clear policy would both help users understand and reduce stress and conflict for all.

OTRS per un'immagine[edit]

Scrivo a te perché - a quanto ho capito - sei l'operatore che se ne occupa. Ti ringrazio moltissimo per l'assistenza!

Range IP mio server privato (no open proxy) bloccato; impossibilità utilizzo account[edit]

Buonasera, l'altro giorno per motivi pratici ho incominciato ad utilizzare uno dei miei server (, come server di desktop remoto con browser; provando a modificare Wikipedia da lì ho ricevuto il messaggio di IP range bloccato, anche dopo aver effettuato il login. Sono stato aggiunto al gruppo "IP block exempt" sulla Wikipedia inglese [9], ma non riesco a trovare una pagina di servizio/template per user talk page equivalente sulla Wikipedia italiana (o magari anche per tutti i Wikimedia Projects). Sulla pagina di edit c'era un link per scrivere una mail ma è bloccato anche quello (mi manda allo stesso errore dell'edit), quindi sto scrivendo qui. È possibile essere aggiunto al gruppo "IP block exempt" o equivalente sulla Wikipedia italiana? Grazie.

Lorenzo Crespi tenta il suicidio ingerendo un mix di barbiturici Messina - Attualità Messina

Martedì 08 Maggio 2012 12:26 A salvarlo sono stati alcuni amici che avevano letto un messaggio su Facebook, in cui l'attore annunciava di volersi togliere la vita.

Il mondo dello spettacolo ti fa arrivare facilmente dalle stelle alle stalle. E' quanto accaduto ultimamente all'attore messinese Lorenzo Crespi. Il protagonista delle serie Tv Gente di Mare, Carabinieri, Pompei e dopo aver interpretato vari ruoli in diversi film di successo, ultimamente le sue apparizioni sono state sempre più centellinate e ieri sera ha tentato il suicidio nella casa di S. Margherita a Messina.

Lorenzo, dopo aver bevuto sostanze alcoliche, ha ingerito barbiturici ed ha scritto un messaggio di addio sul social network Facebook, nel quale annunciava di volersi togliere la vita. I suoi amici che hanno letto sulla sua bacheca, hanno immediatamente lanciato l'allarme e si sono recati presso la sua abitazione. L'attore Messinese è stato trasportato d'urgenza presso il Policlinico Universitario di Messina, dove è stato sottoposto alle cure del caso per salvargli la vita.

Per fortuna i soccorsi sono giunti in tempo e l'attore messinese adesso è stato dimesso e si trova nuovamente nella sua abitazione con la madre. L'ultima sua apparizione in Tv risale al 2010. Fu chiamato a partecipare alla 6ª edizione di Ballando con le stelle, insieme alla ballerina Natalia Titova. Dopo alcune puntate entrò in conflitto con i giurati, poi con gli autori e i colleghi.

Blocking Me from editing[edit]

I did not do anything, sorry for my disrespect to you as I wrote above and as I send it to you and to your Email, I was just angry at my 8 year old son. He was playing in my computer editing this page. I was shouting at him not to touch my computer, but since my son is dumb enough, he did not listen to me, instead, he kept on playing on the computer, suddently, I saw him opening the Wikipedia and clicked edit, and destroyed or changed to some irrelevent stuffs he wrote. I am so sorry, Please and I beg of you to unblock my IP. Many thanks! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Answer me what is the reason I was blocked!! You think I am lying? I swear on my entire life I did not spam. it was my son. Fine you dont want to answer me, fine but I can't be blocked for 3 years! Is this a joke? why can't you make it on June 22, 2013 instead of 2015, because I cannot wait for 3 years and it is not my problem. just think about it.

You're using a webhost address; please see en:WP:BROTHER again - we don't care who did it (even if it was your son, which is very hard to believe), all we know is that there were problems caused by this range and that's why we block it.

I now knew that I am using a webhost. so I still need more help for more information about editing. and because of my son not to mention, caused the problem to get bigger.

When i tried to made a change on commons with my (global) account (but over 2001:41d0:1:e332::10:2 ip address) i got the following warning message:

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
Your IP address has been blocked on all wikis.
The block was made by Vituzzu ( The reason given is Open proxy: hosting on OVH.
   Start of block: 22:48, 5 July 2012
   Expiry of block: 22:48, 5 July 2015

But... Hosting on OVH services doesn't mean that all ip address are open-proxy. In that case, it's an ipv4to6 tunnel and the ::10.2 ip is attributed to a laptop over a VPN.

I also use a squid proxy on ipv4 only connections without VPN... but with an authentication. Goals are performance improvements and the possibility to have a "french ip address" for some services when i'm in another country.

Considering the warn message, i think that the current policy is to block all ip-ranges for hosting providers, but is it possible to unblock some address or range-in-range in this kind of case?

(If it could help to prove my goodwill, i'm admin on french wp chapter and i also use OVH services (on same ip ranges) to host some wp tools for vandalism spotting. But i never add a problem on french chapter caused by this block...). Creasy (talk) 17:57, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Français (fr-1/fr-2): Bonjour. Ce blocage est seulement pour utilasateurs qui ne sont pas connexte (n'ont pas de compte). Si vous ne pouvez pas modifier Wikipédia, nous pouvons donner un exemption du blocage pour votre compte (mais pas l'adresse IP).
Est'ce-que vous devez utiliser cet host? Pour-quoi pas Hurricane Electric?

Strange thing... Yesterday, it was forbiden for me to made a change on commons with my account due to this block but... today, the same change works from same computer, same ip address, same proxy, same browser and same session...

Is this in response to any abuse from the range - This range is assigned to GIGLINX, Inc. which is apparently providing a leased line for a library.

tr.wikipedia problem[edit]

Per your remark I am replying here.

What do you expect the local community to do? There is strong evidence towards the following:

  • Sysop access does not grant the right to indefinitely block long term contributors WITHOUT discussion of any kind. Local sysops came together and made a indef block decision without asking the community in a cabal like manner.
  • Local sysops ignore any remarks local community and make it a point to block users for making remarks opposing their original block of Seksen. Three users were blocked over that with more shorter term blocks. As far as they are concerned this issue is closed despite the RFC.
  • They did not even bother commenting on the meta thread knowing its existence. They have however blocked users over their remarks on meta. Hence many users are currently too afraid to comment on the meta thread.

Let's be honest here. Any one of these would result in desysoping. In my original stance I did not wish for mass desysoping. Increasingly I feel tr.wikipedia sysops are a threat to the very community they are supposed to serve. Their insistence of ignoring the meta RFC is inexcusable in my book.

You are experiencing collateral damage from a rangeblock due to spam from other IP addresses in your range.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:29, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

So it's not my fault and this problem will be solve or what?

If the spam from your range is too severe your range probably cannot be unblocked. If you have an account you can obtain global IP block exemption.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:34, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Great. What I have to do to obtain this global IP?

First you must have a registered account. --Jasper Deng (talk) 19:38, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I have an account it calls "Maxim Snigur" (my name), but system says that there is no page with this name. What does it mean?

Please login here.Jasper Deng (talk) 19:46, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I can't log in here. I have an account in russian wikipedia and it works. I already log in there. blocked[edit]

Hey Vituzzu, you have blocked a whole /16 net (65536 addresses at once) just because of one open proxy in this IP-range? I am operating a private server within, there is no open proxy on my box, and I like to do anonymous contibutions to wikipedia.

I strongly disagree with your attitude to inconsiderately block whole subnets! Coronium (talk) 06:10, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

If you want to do anonymous contributions you need not edit from the server range. Webhosts generally receive this treatment because they tend to host a lot of proxies and have the potential to host and act like more proxies.--Jasper Deng (talk) 15:39, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

Why did you block me?[edit]

I live in a place where I have to connect by VPN. Why did you block me? I have made valuable, objective contributions to Wikipedia and have even donated money!

The block was made by Vituzzu ( The reason given is Open proxy. Start of block: 11:03, 18 June 2012 Expiry of block: 11:03, 18 June 2015 You can contact Vituzzu to discuss the block. You cannot use the "E-mail this user" feature unless a valid e-mail address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it.

Why did you block me? IP-[edit]

If you are frequently less talking in Russian and Russian edit page, so I will talk to you using a translator, please excuse any gaps interpreter. Very disappointed with my lock. Yesterday finished editing the page on which he worked for about a month, but going today discovered that I blocked. Nothing illegal was performed, using the number one provider in Belarus. I am sure that there was an error, I hope for a quick unlock and my faith in the justice in this world - I say thanks in advance! The reason for blocking: Cross-wiki spam: spambot.

  • Start of block: 12:36, 3 September 2012
  • End of block: 12:36, 3 December 2012
There were no errors at all (the block isn't meant to be affect you) but it should work now. --Vituzzu (talk) 14:13, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome.--Vituzzu (talk) 14:50, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Same problem for me: IP (reason: Cross-wiki spam: spambot; 15:17, 2 сентября 2012 - 15:17, 2 сентября 2013). This is static IP, which given to me by my ISP. Computer is free of viruses, no proxy installed. Please unblock me. -- Vort; 15:52, 4 September 2012 (UTC)[edit]

You have globally blocked this range, however it's used by valid bots operated on ( I changed the status locally on, because my bot (wikt:pl:user:Olafbot) stopped working, however I believed it's a mistake, please unblock it globally and be more specific in the mask next time, /16 is to much. You are likely to have the number from Spain overgeneralized and block some Polish sites like as well.Olaf (talk) 23:23, 4 September 2012 (UTC) (Polish Wiktionary and Polish Wikipedia sysop)

Ok, but is certainly not an open proxy. Could you limit the mask to the real open proxy? I know about bots: Olafbot,, Mastibot, MatmaBot, Powiadomienia_ZB. However I'm not sure if there isn't more or less of them. I forwarded the question to the administrator of the server. Olaf (talk) 06:17, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your effort, I understand it costs a lot of work not to block us and keep this state afterwards, however it really helps run bots, if they are not blocked. Thank you once again, Olaf (talk) 16:47, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

blocking IP[edit]

I don't use my computer as a spambot and sure that there are no viruses on it and so on. So there must be some mistake. It's the first time I see such messages, so what should I do now?

Hi Vito. I noticed this message on your user page - I moved it to your user talk. See below.

In English it this literally means "You are not permitted to create an account because:". Moreover - this is only one user who asked me for unblocking today, but I'm afraid a lot of others, who's IP are under the range will leave Wikimedia projects after that forever. --A1 (talk) 11:20, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Vituzzu, there's something weird about the status of this range. From the message above it seems that the local block wasn't actually lifted, nor did the local entry status say so. This is why I tried to unblock it once more. After I reverted my own erroneous action, the log still says the block was lifted and re-enabled (3 times in a row!) without the additional note that it has no local effect. Yet I can't lift the block, if there's any, because it keeps telling me that this won't change its status. So has the block actually been disabled? Please, clarify the situation. To me, it looks like a system bug, and I don't want to feel responsible for a negative effect of my good-faith action. --Microcell (talk) 18:36, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

I have tried whitelisting it, the problem is, there's no way to know if the range is on the ukwiki whitelist or not. If it is, then why doesn't it show the relevant message in the local options? If it isn't, then why doesn't it let me unblock the range informing that no changes are made by whitelisting it? Unfortunately, I have no device using one of those IPs to check it. Please, reply to my messages here so that others could easily follow our discussion. It doesn't bother me to keep an eye on your talk page. --Microcell (talk) 19:12, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
Finally I'd like to know on which basis are you claiming "That's looks like discrimination. that's awfull.

The basis is written above - IP's of hundreds of Ukrainians who are not spamers (!!!) are blocked and disabled for creation an account. I wrote you a server's message which expressively showes that creation of an account is disabled. --A1 (talk) 18:46, 12 September 2012 (UTC) range is under anonymous only block. You can disable it locally. Ruslik (talk) 18:47, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
For WLM users needs local unblock in both Ukrainian Wikipedia and Commons. Currently it looks like he can not create an account from his mobile phone — NickK (talk) 18:59, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Hi. I agree that this block is pretty annoying and I did recieve similar complains from another user. The message cited by A1 states that this account can not be created because of global block. Although I believe there can be some spam activity from this range, a /20 to /22 range normally is enough. At the moment you have blocked the large Ukrainian mobile and Internet operator (same as Wind in Italy, just to show the impact), particularly the range assigned to mobile users all over Ukraine. I don't see any use in block of such a wide range, you should better block a smaller range where this exact vandal is persisting, as several millions of mobile users in Ukraine are not vandals — NickK (talk) 18:57, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Blocks are getting stupid[edit]

Even though I'm logged in, I can edit from work (were I like to play with Wikipedia during lunch time) why? This is getting ridiculous.

In the meantime, I wanted to roll back this intentional blanking here from an unblocked IP address for the second time! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Why is it getting ridiculous? Simply you're trying editing Wikipedia using an ip address which belongs to a subnet I blocked. Please, can you explain me which kind of connection are you using? In order to access the Internet do you have to put a password? --Vituzzu (talk) 18:54, 14 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm logged in, so why can't I edit. WTF does it matter how I'm connected? 17:02, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
1. the block is a hard-block that also disallows logged-in editing. 2. because it determines which IP address you have, and what address you have determines whether you are blocked or not, and by which block.--Jasper Deng (talk) 22:54, 18 September 2012 (UTC)
And that doesn't answer the question of why it's blocked in the first place. Way to kill contributions. 13:45, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
It's blocked because open proxies and other anonymization services are not allowed. --Vituzzu (talk) 14:41, 19 September 2012 (UTC)
WTF! I'm logged in (to Wikipedia). WTF does it matter? This is what kills Wikipedia. 17:03, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
Because proxies are often abused by sockpuppeteers who create accounts in one place and use them on proxies to avoid detection. There's normally no compelling reason for ordinary editors to use proxies.--Jasper Deng (talk) 22:01, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
Well how about because that's the only fucking way onto the internet from work? 15:08, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure the proxy you use then can't be open, in which case its openness should be investigated.--Jasper Deng (talk) 17:08, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
Exactly. Meanwhile the same anonymous vandal that keeps blanking the same article that started this discussion continues to keep blanking it without being blocked. 14:05, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

IP V6 of OVH blocked[edit]

I've just suscribed to the ADSL with the french compagny OVH and my IP is suspected to be an open proxy. My IP will be fix for the years I'm with OVH. How is it possible to unblock it?

Since when did OVH provide ADSL? If you have an account we can grant an exemption to it; if OVH does not mix ADSL and hosting IPs we can remove the block entirely.--Jasper Deng (talk) 19:27, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
I can't create an account here ; but as soon as I will be conected in an other IP I'will create it. OVH provide ADSL since (at least) a year ago for common people and perhabs more for pro [14]. I've no idea if OVH mix or not his ADSL'IPs with the others. How to hnow that ? --2001:41D0:FE12:FB00:225:56FF:FE31:2823 06:47, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

I've create an account. Is it possible to unblock my IP ? My IPv4 is not blocked but the v6 is it. It's stupid because it'll not encourage people to migrate...
I'm not a big contributor but I like to add somme little things or to correct some mistakes anonymously when I saw one of them. --Dmz0o (talk) 09:08, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, you can get an exemption (the IPv4 ranges of OVH can be blocked under the same policy). Currently, we are unlikely to remove this block because we don't know if OVH places hosting and ADSL in the same ranges.--Jasper Deng (talk) 16:30, 18 October 2012 (UTC)



I've never understood why I got blocked after Cloj, the third party user "expert in the discussed field" that was asked about the subject, gave an answer in favor of my arguments on it.Wiki, and since, after you warned me, I didn't even edit articles related to the disputed subject.

I don't say that I wasn't wrong, but I just don't understand how I was blocked after I stopped editing these articles, after you told me to do so, nor why I'm the only one who was blocked after that while the other involved users weren't.

Btw, I would ask you, If you want, to unblock my account. Anyways, I'm not editing University-linked articles anymore, since I'm more interested by history related articles (my favourite occupation being drawing maps and schemes and share them on Commons).

No matter your final decision, thank you anyway.

Because I didn't even know that I was blocked (no warning, unexpected blocking, thought that it was just a problem related to the cited account : hacking or sth else) and I started then to use the (older) "lower case" username.
Btw, I didn't create it to evade by blocking, it was just my first ever account on Wiki [15]...

Alors bref, je ne sais pas trop quoi dire dans ce cas à part que je ne comprends pas les raisons du blocage...

Blocking - GE corporate proxy[edit]

Hi Vituzzu. The IP address that I am editing from is for General Eelectric's (private) corporate proxy, through which all employee internet connections are routed (at least for Aviation). While the large number of people using this IP (in the thousands to hundreds of thousands) may cause it to appear a spammer, in reality it's just a very large block of people sharing an IP, some of whom who have obviously chosen to spam in the past. I do not feel that this is an appropriate reason to block the entire IP, as it is tantamount to blocking an entire ISP due to the bad behavior of a few users. If this were the intended policy of Wikipedia, then it seems that anonymous contributions should be disabled altogether (which they obviously aren't).

Actually is not only GE but the whole Cisco Scansafe service which can be used as a proxy. Unregistered editing is surely allowed but to me using an account to edit from scansafe is a reasonable trade-off. --Vituzzu (talk) 14:51, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
Being required to create an account simply to correct an occasional typo seems fairly unreasonable. There must be a less heavy-handed way to solve the spamming problems you perceive. 18:05, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
As you can see here is not a simple perception, to me it's not an heavy-handed solution or, at least, I think it is the lighter one. Feel free to suggest a better one. --Vituzzu (talk) 18:37, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
I certainly didn't mean to imply that spam itself wasn't a problem - I was questioning how much of it was actually coming from the 69.174.58.* subnet which I work under and occasionally edit from (incidentally, I'm not the same individual who started this thread). I'm no fan of spam, and if I had more info and contacts in the IT department here, I'd find the spammer and go to their cubicle myself... 19:39, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Well, I've just unblocked Scansafe, I hope I have been able to isolate the problem.--Vituzzu (talk) 23:24, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, I hope you've isolated it as well. 14:38, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Will you please oblige renaming me here on meta with the username "itar buttar" (you may say that first letter, I, will always be capital, but plz take care of "b" I don't wanna it in capital) or "Itar buttar". I'll be very grateful. Thanks a lot. --tari buttar [talk] 08:37, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Request for temporary unblock of a proxy IP and reasons justifying it[edit]

I would like to request to temporarly unblock this proxy IP ( for a genuine and exceptional need. It is the first time I make such a request, since I can't publish any information related to my username or reveal my IP with this case, please let me know if this is not the proper procedure.
I have to add some details regarding the Search_engine_optimization talk page (not the actual page) about a source that is considered reliable and using my user id or my IP represent a risk of being spammed, DODed or hacked. -- 12:38, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Another request to remove a block[edit]

Who the heck are you, and why are you blocking so many people? Don't the copious entries above tell you you're doing something wrong?

Now please unblock me, too. I was creating a bona fide new article and encountered, "Editing from your IP address ( has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 20141107232217 by Vituzzu ( for the following reason:..." I also connect via VPN, blah blah blah. 03:01, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Unfortunately the best we can offer you if you wish to edit from a VPN is to first disconnect, create an account, ensure that it's a global account, and request global IP block exemption at Steward requests/Global permissions. Otherwise, you probably can't edit from a VPN. If your webhost is a shared one, you probably shared this IP address with a spammer.
And for your information, Vituzzu is one of our stewards. We have a policy against open proxies, and many VPNs can act as if they were proxies; many are abused. --Jasper Deng (talk) 04:32, 14 November 2012 (UTC) belongs to scansafe and it's the greatest spamsource in its subnet. Since scansafe makes a static allocation that ip is, definitely, the last one which can be unblocked. --Vituzzu (talk) 13:17, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

I have a case for your study please[edit]

Hey Vituzzu. First don't worry about this username and ip. the ip is blocked by you because I am using an ip changer program. but I don't care about the ip. I just feel lazy to keep changing it. I would like to be a stable contributor to the project. The reason I am writing to you is because in the Spanish section, a bad admin has blocked me forever and doesn't even want to discuss it. I know I misbehaved a little and tried to open discussion but she is abusing of her authority. she has even protected my own discussion talkboard which very oppressing. She even deleted my recent work claiming lack of sources. When I gave her the sources she deleted everything, ignored me and blocked me even from my own talkboard.... is it professional?

I know I can make a new username and get a new ip, but people like her really discourage others from collaborating with the project and my goal is to solve the situation. I have contacted you because I feel in the spanish section most of them are like a mafia. I want a unbiased judge between her and me. Is there any way you can help me?

thanks in advanced my email is purollas at yahoo dot com


Hello. My IP was blocked as open proxy. It is dynamic IP given by provider. Please unblock this IP range otherwise users of first-string provider of Odessa (Ukrainian city with 1kk+ citizens) would be out of editing. Thanks.


Hello,My ip is 2607:f740:90::f69 ,because China government block wikipedia some page,i must use my private proxy access wikipedia. this ip is my VPS(virtual private server),it not a public proxy. i can secure this ip is only use for me. please unblock it ,thanks. 陈少举 (talk) 07:35, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

We probably have to give you global IP block exemption, because we don't know if your VPS provider mixes your IP addresses with those of open proxies. You can request exemption at Steward requests/Global permissions.--Jasper Deng (talk) 07:47, 16 November 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Vituzzu!

My name is Duró Sándor from Hungary, my username is Ronastudor. I’ve got a forbit from you 11/09/2002 to 11/09/2017. Why you did it?
My net-pendrive was repaired and my IP address maybe changed. I edited yesterday and the day before yesterday etc. since 11/9/2008 almost every day. You hurt me Vituzzu. Clear up the case and apologise, please! My e-mail address:

My best regards: Ronastudor
(P.S.: Sorry, but my English is very poor…)

My internet and Wikipedia is very good. I must apologise and I do it: I'm sorry, Vituzzu! Regards: Ronastudor

IP blocked -[edit]

I've been told that my IP address is blocked - - as of September 6 - which is strange since I edited from this computer last Thursday. How did that happen? 21:56, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Which kind of connection are you using now? --Vituzzu (talk) 23:31, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

Blocked IP[edit]

Hi, Vituzzu. You have bloked my IP and also my account, but I haven't edited anything in this computer for nearly a month. I don't know what the matter is, but I don't think I haven't done anything wrong. Please explain me the reason and unblock me. Thanks. Guille14 (talk) 00:05, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

IP Blocking Issue[edit]

Hello, it has come to my attention now that, for reasons unknown to me, my IP address was blocked. The given reason was "Use of a Proxy", which does not make much sense, as I have not used a proxy do edit, or much less view articles in Wikipedia. Now, I have used a VPN to view pages, but never edit. I was unaware (and still unaware) that using a VPN to so much as look at articles is a violation of the rules here. My IP address has also changed somewhat from moving/adjusting settings in my router, but I do not think this should affect anything. My plea to you is simply to have the ban "undone", as I would appreciate this greatly. If there is anything that needs to be clarified, you can contact me either on here, or through e-mail. Thank you, and have a nice day :).--ZSNES (talk) 18:51, 15 December 2012 (UTC)

IP Block Appeal[edit]

You are currently unable to edit Wikipedia.

Editing from your IP address ( has been blocked (disabled) on all Wikimedia wikis until 11:03, 18 June 2015 by Vituzzu ( for the following reason:

Open proxy

This block began on 11:03, 18 June 2012.

You can contact Vituzzu to discuss the block and you may make unblock requests or file appeals at meta:Steward requests/Global. Your current IP address is Please include all above details in any queries you make.

Sorry to disturb you. Yeah, it must be a real headache to sift through this archive of seemingly countless unblocking requests. In any case, I am appealing my own when you have the time - the above IP address is certainly not being used for any malicious purpose. I have nothing to do with an open proxy. The IP address in question was not, as far as I know:

  • 1) Subject to a questionable history on Wikipedia.
  • 2) Used as an open proxy server in the past.
  • 3) Associated with sockpuppets, vandalism, or any other blatant violation of the rules on other wiki sites.
  • 4) Used by another individual other than myself.
  • 5) Shared with another address, or range of addresses thereof.

As of December 18 I have still been able to edit freely.

Long-time active contributor blocked on suspected open proxy IP – WTF!!![edit]

I am a bit lost, but is being logged in as a long-time active contributor not enough to override any IP blocks that may exist? I am currently on the road, and despite being logged in editing is being denied because the IP I am assigned right now is suspected to be an open proxy. Is it official Wikipedia policy that an IP block overrules a registered and confirmed editor status? Seriously, WTF? Nageh (talk) 20:41, 20 December 2012 (UTC)

In regards to above comment and the discussion at User_talk:Nageh#Re:, may I ask for your comment over there on what is the rationale for locking out confirmed users when an IP block is in effect? Thanks again! Nageh (talk) 16:36, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Problemi su wikivoyage[edit]

Ciao, Vituzzu! Ho un quesito non tecnico da sottoporre alla tua attenzione. Ho un problema con un utente anonimo su Wikivoyage che sospetto sia in malafede. Poichè non so bene come gestire la faccenda potresti indicarmi la persona in grado di aiutarmi? --Cobbler (talk) 00:06, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Grazie, Vituzzu per le tue delucidazioni. Personalmente non ho dubbi che si tratti di un troll il cui scopo è quello di nuocere al progetto. Tuttavia non so' assolutamente come affrontare tali soggetti e come prevenirne le mosse, anche perché il tipo è dotato di buona dialettica che assorbe le forze della comunità. Ammetto che finora ho fatto sbagli. Al lounge di WV l'utente OrbiliusMagister è provvido di consigli teorici sul tema degli utenti problematici mentre a me serve subito un aiuto pratico, ovvero una persona di lingua italiana che sia esperto di troll e abile nel maneggiarli. Ti ringrazio per aver offerto la tua mediazione. Ciò che mi serve però non è un aiuto temporaneo ma un utente disposto a occuparsi del troll e che vigili costantemente sulle sue mosse. Ho segnalato le azioni del troll nella pagina degli utenti problematici e ho visto che questi vi ha lasciato un messaggio. Preferirei che mi rispondessi sulle mie user talk locali o su quelle di it/wp ma non sulle mie pagine di discussioni in Wikivoyage. Ti ringrazio per l'attenzione e se non dovessimo sentirci prima ti auguro un felice 2013. --Cobbler (talk) 23:28, 28 December 2012 (UTC)

Richiesta di cancellazione di flag sysop & bot[edit]

Caro Vito, ho seguito Raoli nella sua attuale avventura su it.wikivoyage e siccome godo della sua fiducia (spero ben riposta) mi son trovato flaggato bot + sysop come it:voy:Utente:Alex brolloBot. Purtroppo mi sono subito scontrato con un bug di pywikipedia, che ho identificato e segnalato e che impediva il login; il bug è stato risolto; ma nel corso dei tentativi per risolvere il bug ho creato un'altra utenza it:voy:Utente:Alebot, anche lei flaggata sysop + bot, pleonastica.

Siccome mi è più comodo usare quest'ultima, ti chiedo di rimuovere da it:voy:Utente:Alex brolloBot i due flag sysop e bot; la userò come utenza comune di prova. Se è troppo laborioso semplicemente abbandonerò l'utenza al suo destino senza utilizzarla più. Grazie! Puoi avere conferma di quanto ti ho brevemente raccontato da it:voy:Utente:Raoli. --Alex brollo (talk) 07:27, 30 December 2012 (UTC)

IP address block lift request.[edit]

Dear Mr. Vituzzu:


I am the current owner of the server associated to the following IP addresses:

  • IPv4 address
  • IPv6 addresses 2607:f878:3:17:0:302:5465:10 - 2607:f878:3:17:0:302:5465:14

When I attempted to edit a page in Wikipedia (en), I was blocked due to a global IP ban citing the reason "open proxy". The server in question is indeed a proxy server, but it is not open, and can only be accessed under my permission.

There are technical and political reasons for me to use this proxy server to access Wikipedia. All possible Internet access I have is relatively slow, thus this server is used to provide Internet access to me with data compression, in order to improve speed. As an user from China, I suffer from severe governmental Internet censorship against freedom of speech and freedom of knowledge.

I am hereby requesting you to lift the ban of the IP addresses aforementioned.

Xcvista (talk) 06:21, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

You probably have to get a global IP block exemption instead, which can be requested at Steward requests/Global permissions, unless it can be shown that your webhost also provides connectivity, like DSL. You can also try with IPv4-only, but I can see that that wouldn't be as easy.--Jasper Deng (talk) 07:21, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

Some info[edit]

  • Hi Vituzzu. I want to give you some information about this comment. Ozgurmulazimoglu was banned from Turkish Wikipedia for trolling, years ago. Then, he created joined that Wiki based website. Its community consists some of banned users from Turkish Wikipedia and as long as I understand it is something like national Turkish (or Turkey) Wikipedia. Anyway, some users tried to create that website's article on several Wikipedias, but then they nominated for deletion, and deleted. Then "some" users created the same article over and over again, and tried to add this website to some articles as a source. It's not a reliable source as you see, and community of Turkish Wikipedia decided to add it to spam list, of course. But these users kept saying that website's name in any discussion about the Turkish Wikipedia itself, and still keep saying that. That's the whole story. Have a nice day.--Rapsar (talk) 08:42, 15 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi, Vituzzu. Ozgurmulazimoglu didn't create that Wiki based website. Davut Denkel (he is not a banned user) created Ansiklopedika to protest against the article Armenian Genocide and other articles, which were not written with pro-Turkish nationalists' theses. Takabeg (talk) 03:24, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
And this is the block log of Mulazimoglu. He also blocked with an expiry time of indefinite with the claim of "trolling" like some other users (e.g. User:Orijinnal). Takabeg (talk) 03:44, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind explanation: but I'm wondering how much is it related to the incident which originated the RfC. --Vituzzu (talk) 02:23, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Not much. That's why I made an explanation on your talkpage, not on RfC ;) Have a nice day.--Rapsar (talk) 06:45, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Honestly I think that the ansiklopedia's case is the origin of the current conflicts on Actually the whole ansiklopedia's affair seems to be cause by the current social conflicts in Turkey among islamism, laicism, kemalism, nationalism...etc, am I wrong? --Vituzzu (talk) 12:53, 16 January 2013 (UTC)
Not exactly. Seksen, Bermanya (as long as I know) and I think Ansiklopedika has problems, and it is not trying to be a neutral, global encyclopedia. It is trying to be like a national encyclopedia (I respect to that of course). These four blocked users doesn't have any relation about Ansiklopedika. But, like I said, everytime we discuss something about the Turkish Wikipedia itself, an "anonymous" user joins that discussion and says something about Ansiklopedika, which is happening again. I hope I made myself clear :) Have a nice day.--Rapsar (talk) 14:34, 16 January 2013 (UTC)


Ciao, la situazione di emergenza su parrebbe risolta, il template ora funziona e non sembrano essere necessari altri import. Ho sprotetto alcune pagine protette da tempo e alcuni template. Al momento non ci sono sysop attivi presenti con costanza, è anche vero che la rc non è davvero drammatica. In due giorni non ho visto utenti tanto esperti da essere potenziali sysop ma magari erano tutti in viaggio :-) Allo stato il progetto è parecchio carente di linee guida per la gestione degli utenti ma se le faranno (così come le pagine di aiuto ecc.)

I'm not spamming. I'm en:User:Feedback; I've been replacing instances where my former username is used with my newer one. When I was much younger and dumber, I had my real name as my username, and I now am upset that it appears on Google search pages. So I'm just replacing the instances of my former name with the newer one. I'm doing it outside my user account to avoid overloading my contributions page with these minor edits. So yeah, could you unblock me? Thanks.


Hi! Would you mind taking a look at to see if anything else needs to be done? Thanks! --Rschen7754 01:59, 17 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm a minor contributor. Please state the reason for blocking me. I have a dynamic IP, and a home network which runs several devices. At times I might've not logged in and made some editing. Pero tanto tempo fa, avevo fatto un po di editing sul wikipedia Italiano senza fare il log in.

I want a valuable reason for why I am blocked on every wiki for over two years (June 22 2012-June 22 2015). I tried to undo vandalism on a Wikipedia page and it said "webhosting used to spam". If you think I am using some sort of "network" or some crap you're wrong. I just made a Wiki account to edit a few mistakes now and then. I did nothing wrong and I request my IP unbanned so I can continue to help your "wiki" company - Kuzey457 (talk) 01:17, 12 April 2013 (UTC)


chiedo lo sblocco dell'IP statico in almeno 4 versioni: italiana, inglese, spagnola, francese per poter contribuire allo sviluppo di voci da me abbozzate; inoltre potrei iniziarne altre. Si tratta dell'IP di computer messi a disposizione gratuita del pubblico 24 ore al giorno: la proprietà è di una fondazione che fà beneficenza. In Italiano mai mi son registrato mentre in inglese sono 'boiagiallo' e in spagnolo 'manesbuffy': ho già parzialmente tradotto dal relativo articolo italiano en:Italian buffalo e voglio tradurlo in spagnolo, dopo lo abbozzerò in francese. Ho provato a inserirmi nei miei nomignoli ma non mi viene riconosciuta la parola di accesso; dipende dal tuo blocco? Attualmente mi dedico a questi articoli sul bufalo italiano e cibi ricavati da it:latte bufalino, che ho pure iniziato. Se avrò tempo mi dedicherò ad altri argomenti. Se devo eseguire qualche procedura per lo sblocco, avvisami: puoi lasciare un messaggio qui sotto o nella discussione di 'boiagiallo', pure nella discussione dell'IP qui o nella versione italiana. Ti auguro tante buone cose-- 11:46, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

Grazie, Vituzzu, fa in ogni caso piacere l'essere seguiti..[edit]

Vituzzu, mi fa piacere se mi critichi, perchè in effetti sono qua da circa un mese e mezzo e appena mi rendo conto degli usi (solo se confronto le precedenti traduzioni di pagine simili posso capire..); l'inglese l'ho masticato alla ragioneria serale, pertanto ci credo che ho paura a discostarmi dal letterale.. Il francese mi piace molto di più grazie al prof portentoso della maturità scientifica (il parodiato poi Antonio Martinelli della "Notte prima degli esami" - Ti giuro, non scherzo, nome affibbiatogli dal mio collega, suo studente anche lui, sceneggiatore dello stesso film..). Ma qua ci tocca tradurre obbligatoriamente dall'inglese, e quindi, eccomi qua.. Anche se però mi sembra che ci siano - correggimi se sbaglio - pochi volontari che traducono.. Anyway.. Proverò a migliorare.. Ciao, --Gloria sah (talk) 21:50, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Fundraising translation feedback[edit]

Hey Vituzzu, I have a bit of a request to ask from you. We pulled down our banners nearly a fortnight ago for what was a highly successful international fundraiser and brought the curtain down on last years fundraiser. This week however we will be changing payment processors and during the testing of the new system it would be useful to use the time productively on on testing banner text.

To help us out with this I wonder if you would be willing to help us improve our italian text 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.

We are going to run the test on tuesday so if you dont see this message till 24 hours after it was sent you can ignore me :) Many Thanks though.

Why is every open proxy in the wiki universe blocked?[edit]

It said you blocked me because i'm using something called "nlayer" or something along those lines, it seems that you have blocked many, if not all open proxys on the wiki and therefor hinder the anonymous edit tool... I really just wanted to try it out before I go through the trouble of making a account and it seems you blocked my IP adress in september 2012, I haden't even made an edit in my entire life...

I saw that yesterday expired my block but why did you re-block me when yesterday was the expiry date and why didn't you respond or say anything at my message I left on your talk page? And not to mention, regarding from our last discussion, I'd have to say, first of all, I will say when I was editing the article separation of powers, you had every right in deleting and blocking me, and I don't blame you. Second, you made an investigation regarding my four accounts and like I said again, I don't blame you. Third, you said that I left a message in your pretending to be an IT-N and called my messages "trolling", when really, I just wanted to clear out a point and the least you could have done was to say you weren't interested. Fourth of all, You said Wikipedia is based on consensus while your statement saying that trolling, edit-warring, block evasions, sockpuppeting, nothing just your idea you're absolutely right. Seriously I took some minutes to talk to you in order to understand how far is your attitude from collaborative work and you failed to show me any ability to take part to a collaborative project. How am I trolling? I am trying to get you to listen that in my second edit, I talked to User: Marcopil64 when I went back to the article separation of powers and he didn't seem to have a problem with "Block evasion" since I talked to him about my editing (something I didn't do the first time in which was a mistake I did) and after our conversation, we came to an egreement and moved on! But how come you seem so tensely paranoid about me evading a block when all you did was to throw a bunch of excuses at me?? My third edit in it.Wikipedia in article Repubblica, I gave my explanation why I erased that sentence and you reverted it without saying why you did it or your reasons, so don't you come and tell me that my attitude is far from a collaborative work. I bet you accused the lad above me for "nlayer" without any explanation and go with indifference as you usually do. I want to know why you have re-blocked me without reason nor explanation after sending you a message, when the block was supposed to end in that same day? You also said you were dealing with my attitude last time, but what about yours? And not to mention what you did to that Alejandro Peña Esclusa article is just one of your flaws in Wikipedia. We really need to talk. Yes I had four accounts and yes I made mistakes in my first time but you've really drawn the wrong line on whats to have consensus and whats to be doing the right thing in Wikipedia and being a good server of the page. I must say you really lack diplomacy and your way of interacting with other users is quite disrespectful. I will wait for a reply from you and if you don't reply soon, I will have to contact other users in regards of this situation in which I will tell them every detail from my edits in the other wikis to your refusal to reply and your third non-consensual block. I'm not arguing with you, nor fighting, nor accusing you, all I'm saying is that we both can deal with this as soon as possible and I will no longer edit in Wikipedia (If that's what you want me to do), That is! if you're willing to listen because I know you read this, only that you refuse to respond (which by the way will be taken as disrespectful).

I've just been reading your talk page & discovered this:

Unfortunately the best we can offer you if you wish to edit from a VPN is to first disconnect, create an account, ensure that it's a global account, and request global IP block exemption at Steward requests/Global permissions. Otherwise, you probably can't edit from a VPN. If your webhost is a shared one, you probably shared this IP address with a spammer. And for your information, Vituzzu is one of our stewards. We have a policy against open proxies, and many VPNs can act as if they were proxies; many are abused. --Jasper Deng (talk) 04:32, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Take serious consideration about banning Dreamhost's network[edit]

Dreamhost is just a hosting provider. It allow its customers to access its servers to serve websites. For convinces, it allowed its customers to logged in via SSH. Some users may use this functionality as a proxy, but this not a common case. I found you have banned Dreamhost's network to modify any page on wikipedia/wikisource. Maybe you should take serious consideration about this action -- if banning Dreamhost is reasonable, then all VPS providers and Cloud Computing service providers's network should be banned, Amazon, Google, Linode, Microsoft and so on.

Meine Frage ist, kannst Du meinen Zugang freischalten, oder bleibt er bis zum Ende meines Urlaus gesperrt.Vielen Dank für Deine Arbeit und Hilfe. Grüße von Huckety (talk) 19:42, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Richiesta Sblocco[edit]

Scusa il disturbo ma oggi sono andato su una mia sandbox per modificarla ed ho trovato questo messaggio:

Edit warring over hr.wikipedia sitenotice[edit]

Just a few words regarding your comment in the steward's noticeboard page... (I didn't want to add my comments there, as they may be not strictly on topic.)

Using a sitenotice for internal processes would definitely be an overkill in en wiki, but not necessarily in hr wiki. There are less than 30 c. 150 editors with 5+ edits a month there (the last month was an outlier, obviously :) ), so it is paramount to get as wide an input as possible. Otherwise, admins could get elected with 5-6 or so "Support" votes. However, since off-wiki canvassing and campaigning is apparently also rather strong there, tampering with the site notice (e.g. removing it contrary to established practice) is a way to manipulate the vote by hiding it from the part of the community one wishes to exclude.

Also, when you said " seems to be about to have no more sysops" - is that your personal position or there are actually discussions or steps underway? GregorB (talk) 12:24, 3 November 2013 (UTC)

You're right, it's almost a 50-50 split, and the atmosphere is nasty. Judging by the en wiki standard (one I'm familiar with), hr wiki is dysfunctional in many aspects, and it's been going on for years. Now, the language barrier is a problem; this unfortunately means frustration for some Croatian Wikipedians who have a feeling WMF is sitting on its hands. Let's see what happens next; I feel some kind of action will be necessary. Cheers, GregorB (talk) 19:47, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

cs.wiktionary de-sysopping Milda - beware of an OVERKiLL, pls[edit]

Hello Vituzzu, hereby I take the liberty of asking you to think twice before you take any hasty measures in the Chujan de Hovníkov-gate. If you wish I can provide you with the experience with Milda's sysopping that I have as a plain editor with no special rights. Briefly, the Czech mutation of Wiktionary is currently very short of editors and sysops. Milda is a good, disciplined and hard-working one. As far as I understand, sockpuppeting is an anathema - but consider this: this was the single case on Milda's part. Moreover, the contents of the page in question as I remember it were rather light-hearted, jocular, basically it boiled down to poking at Juan de Vojníkov's spelling blunders, no heavy insults as I take it, although I admit I am not in the Juan'dV's shoes. Furthermore, it had been classed as Kabinet kuriozit. I am no real insider, but apparently there is a good deal of animosity between JdV, Aktron and Egg on one part, and most of the currently philologically editing community on the other. Don't get manipulated by the formers, please. Consider also the comments made by Lenka64 alias Dubicko. They seem to have the point. What I mean is that cs.wikt would lose too much, should Milda leave it. Thank you for your time. --Pyprilescu (talk) 16:26, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Dear Pyprilescu. As far as you are quite new to cs.wikt, you have suprisingly good knowledge of personal relationship of users that indicates, you must be present at Czech community much longer, than is your account.--Juandev (talk) 23:30, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
I think that as long as Pyprilescu does not do anything bad and there is no real suspicion of abusing multiple accounts, no blanket checkusering should be done. And if you, Vituzzu, find it necessary to check some more people, please do not reveal the results unless you find some evil activities. I personally suspect one or two accounts of being new identity of old editors, who made some enemies and are trying for a clean start. If I am right, I value such perseverance and I think their effort should not be foiled just because other users are participating in some sockpuppet war.--Tchoř (talk) 01:56, 19 November 2013 (UTC)


At the talk page of cs.wv you have commented, that I know he has been proved guilty of many abuses but the worst ones are still without any evidence. That seems I am almost a criminal. Could you give us some examples of those abuses, where I was proved guilty? Thanks.--Juandev (talk) 23:35, 18 November 2013 (UTC)

Listen up.[edit]

OK, listen up you god damn jerk. I'm really sick and tired of your shit. I'm sick of you stalking me all over Wikipedia because I'm editing a page. Just because YOU don't like the edits I make, doesn't mean you have to bully and global block me each time I make an edit OK?? I'm not hurting and offending anyone, so why treat me like a terrorist??

I've noticed I'm not the only one you bullied. You are abusing your power as a Wikipedia administrator and you are nothing but a tyrannical bully. That is NOT how you motivate people OK? And the reason you hate me so much is because I'm speaking out against your ass and you HATE IT.

I will not let you intimidate me no longer. And you'll going to delete this and tattle on me as usual because you as a tyrant don't like the truth. But I will be back and I will continue to edit like everyone else on here.

So in closing, screw you. Piss off and eat shit.

Let's say it in the right way: you're a child who is not yet able to manage her anger, you're also completely not able to take part to a collaborative project, for that reason you were globally blocked. Every time you try coming back from global (b)lock you are not welcome and I must do everything I can to prevent your return, also by removing everything you do. That's the way I demotivate people. You're simply not suitable for Wikipedia because, above all, you must grow up and learn some rudiments of politeness. Hiding the truth behind a supposed case of bullying you pretend to be victim of won't help this process: you're simply an actual bully who found someone which the possibility to stop you, stop being a bully will stop being demotivated. --Vituzzu (talk) 09:31, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Vituzzu. I need your review about your action on me. I have nothing to do some good things right now. Please give me the unblocking action for my account on all wikis, because you give me a global block. I access the Internet by using Speedy (Telkom). I don't use something like an open proxy. Thank you and respects.

I have investigated the problem. The computer network which I used to access the internet uses extension to access forbidden websites by using Speedy (Telkom).
Relly Komaruzaman | Talk 13:34, 6 May 2014 (UTC)


  • [22] You suggest I go to Steward requests/global with this; however, you have far more information than I, I only saw the one account which was an obvious vandal/troll, though not truly cross-wiki, i.e., only one wiki and one edit on meta, so I would not go to SRG, no matter how awful the account was. However, that meta comment could be quite damaging, if users don't look at the account history, and who goes to that much trouble? Few.
  • DanielTom has claimed he's being harassed, and this was evidence of that. He may believe all kinds of wheels are turning behind the scenes, and this would feed into his paranoia. However, just because he's paranoid doesn't mean that nobody is out to get him. I'll be working with him to help him find what I called the "other half." He can see what is (sometimes) "wrong," now can he see what is "right?"
  • In any case, thanks for your support of his being able to continue to work where he has been non-disruptive. My hope is that this will help him to see the other half. I see signs here that he's going in that direction. --Abd (talk) 20:06, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Your reversion of archiving on User talk:Jimbo Wales[edit]

[23]. Don't you think this should be discussed before reverting an action, taken two weeks ago, that stopped a train wreck of useless wrangling that Jimbo explicitly was not likely to read? I suppose I could ask Jimbo, I really didn't want to bother him. Whatever, I do not revert war. --Abd (talk) 01:30, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Your question on Talk:Spam blacklist[edit]

[24]. That page is an administrative request page. Beetstra and I have a long history of conversation on the use and abuse of the blacklist. If I responded there to your question about my goals, it would open up even more discussion out of place on that page. Hence I'm not responding there. If you wish to ask me about my motives or understandings, please do so on my Talk page. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 03:16, 12 February 2014 (UTC)

Actually, I have a question to ask. You wrote: "For the n-th time I must ask you to refrain from this kind of behaviour." How large is n? You wrote: "You moved from a legit position towards an harsher and harsher one vs. one quarrel." Beetstra and I went back and forth. Beetstra was arguing without relevance to any action to be taken. I pointed that out. Very little of what I wrote, if any, was a "personal quarrel." I was considering the issues. I ultimately concluded that the whole discussion was out of place, and that's when you asked me what my goal was. But if I crossed some line, I'd appreciate knowing what, exactly, was the text or edit that did that, so I can examine it.

What was another example of your "asking me to refrain"? I looked, fairly carefully, and I couldn't find any. You are not required to answer, but I'm hoping you don't have an idea that you have warned me many times, and I've ignored the warnings. I haven't. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 03:17, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

RfC closing[edit]

Hi Vituzzu,

I have a couple of qustions to your action. I am not so good in Englis, so I havent understood your phrase: "No actions needed setting apart from Billinghurst's suggestions." Could you paraphrase it? and what about "also leaving any action needed towards him to another sysop or to a global sysop/steward would eventually avoid any polemic."--Juandev (talk) 06:19, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

your reverts[edit]

Could you please explain your two reversions? I was trying to calm down the user, and you literally reverted my edit. Do you actually know what rollback is for? ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:08, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

I'll report you to some noticeboard, I don't believe you should have rollback, unless you can give me some convincing reason. ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:25, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Vito, why did you remove the comment after Argenton restored it? I find this removal inappropriate unless it actually was offensive or very off-topic. "off topic, some slight insults" Who was being insulted? If it was because he called the reasons "ridiculous", that is not something bad enough to revert (IMHO). PiRSquared17 (talk) 18:38, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
"Somewhat ridiculous." I was actually much harsher on Argenton. But he took it well, and the steward didn't, because Vituzzu has personal grudges against me and can't wait to revert (and block) me. ~ DanielTom (talk) 18:55, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Well, I don't understand why the reversion was necessary if Argenton was not offended, but if Vito is correct about it being trolling (I cannot really tell from Google Translate), then it should have been removed. I do not wish to discuss this any longer, and recommend you drop the stick as well. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:02, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
To be honest - I agree with Vito's reverts. The messages added nothing to the discussions besides a weak insult over the user's attitude. Also while Meta is a multilingual community - places like SR* should be written in English in my personal opinion or at least match the discussion's language. Half English and half Portuguese is bad practise for such discussions, again in my opinion. John F. Lewis (talk) 19:12, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
What a surprise. "In my opinion", 1) you have limited language skills, and, 2) you shouldn't ever be given rollback. ~ DanielTom (talk) 19:20, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Ah, the classic DanielTom 'I have someone disagreeing with me, I know - Insult them!' You're unblocked - Be constructive besides resulting to create weak insults for people. John F. Lewis (talk) 19:26, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Is the truth an insult? Classic DanielTom: created several articles, Manuel Mendes de Barbuda e Vasconcelos, Bernarda Ferreira de Lacerda, Pedro de Andrade Caminha, José Maria da Costa e Silva, João Xavier de Matos, all in a week, on Portuguese Wikipedia. What have you done? Oh, wait, I forgot. You never edit any articles! You think people care about your precious "opinions", even though you never contribute to any articles, you just enjoy interfering on issues that don't concern you. Please mind your own business. ~ DanielTom (talk) 19:38, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I don't edit articles. However, I am an active xwiki user, sysops on two projects, previously a sysop on one etc. I don't care whether people care or not - I'm not asking them to. I'm telling them what I think and whether you like it or not, tough. I'm not blocked on several wikis and more, if anything - you need to desist from provoking people and just focus on your own editing and ignore what others are doing. John F. Lewis (talk) 19:45, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Can you please stop playing the "who has done more important work" game? This actually could be considered trolling. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:02, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

Another person blocked but not sure why since I've never spammed anybody[edit]

Hello. My IP address is apparently blocked or banned by Wiki. I've contributed a few sentences and a few references to Wikipedia quite a while ago and from work. Nothing I wrote was the least bit controversial. I think it was about colleges in the US or some such. I can't even remember. My spelling is not great but I can't imagine being banned for a spelling error. I've never sent out spam. Can you let me know why I'd be banned. That is very odd.

talk to people at Wikipedia, not here. --Goldenburg111 00:35, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
That advice isn't very helpful, Goldenburg111, since the problem appears to be a global range block (see here). According to the block log, this IP address has been blocked because it's an open proxy and another IP address from the same range has been used for spamming. See NOP for the guidelines for blocking open proxies, including instructions what to do if you wish to continue editing despite the block. Mathonius (talk) 09:45, 27 March 2014 (UTC)

Request you unlock global accounts you locked.[edit]

On 25 March 2014 you globally locked an account, claiming (Spam-only account)

This account had created 555 user pages, one per wiki, with similar content, each consisting of a displayed single image hosted (and still hosted) on Commons, one of commons:Category:Photographs by Augusto De Luca. This was not spam and was not a spambot.[25] Whether or not it was disruptive is something not clear from policy. However, the global lock prevented the user from taking any steps, on-wiki, to communicate with the communities where he registered and created a user page.

User pages, generally, may be "promotional," within limits, see w:Wikipedia:User pages.

You also made a Title blacklist entry for these user pages.[26], and as amended. These title blacklist entries were not logged, as appears to be required. (that should be fixed).

The title blacklist was an appropriate way to stop possibly disruptive behavior, and, given it, the global lock was unnecessary. Please unlock.

The next day, March 26, you globally locked four more accounts with no recent activity. You claimed "spam-only accounts" for all. Besides being stale, that is clearly incorrect from an examination of their contributions. If you need evidence on that, let me know.

And then, on April 10, you locked another inactive account, with "(crosswiki promo)," which may be much more correct, but, then, is not a reason for a global lock, or else any SPA or alleged COI editor could be globally locked without warning or discussion.

These users all had clean block logs, and no history of disruption, revert warring, or continuation of problem behavior after warning. In fact, Giulia D'Eboli, as the declared daughter of Augusto De Luca, had responded to a warning and stopped editing with respect to her father.

The global locks prevented any of the users who had created or worked on wikipedia or other pages relating to Augusto De Luca from commenting in deletion discussions. This could be actual harm to the projects, for it is likely that a photographer with De Luca's history (as to exhibitions and as to the highly notable people photographed), has been covered by reliable source, in print, going back pre-internet. These sources will not be findable through internet searches, but they are legitimate as reliable source for Wikipedia articles (at least on Those who might know these sources, or be motivated and able to find them, were literally locked out of the discussions.

The De Luca lock can be temporarily justified by a necessity to quickly stop what you believed to be disruption. The other locks had no such reason and appear to be contrary to what exists of policy around global locks, and outside of actual practice. Please unlock the additional accounts. Thanks. --Abd (talk) 18:06, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

request for copy of page you deleted[edit]

User:Abd/Antispam practices/Santarelli/IP addresses

While I do not believe there was any violation of privacy policy there, I do not need to keep that evidence on-wiki; however, while I generally have copies off-wiki, that particular page I do not have, and would thus need to recompile it. (Everything on the page would have come from public logs, so I can recompile it, it's simply extra work.) Would you mind emailing me the wikitext? If it has been suppressed, please let me know so that I can request a copy from an oversighter.

I am in communication with the real Daniele Santarelli, that is, the professor, the published author, and the managing editor of ereticopedia. Most of the IP that would have been listed on that page was not his. Some clearly was, and it can be distinguished. A few examples are possible, but unlikely.

Thanks. --Abd (talk) 11:45, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

I won't give out any information violating the privacy of any user. Meanwhile you must avoid defaming users as you are implicitly doing. Also you should asap stop posting posting private information here and at en.wikiversity even if the relevant legal responsibility are, anyway, yours. We evaluate behaviours of accounts catching violations of our TOS all other implications are simply completely irrelevant. --Vituzzu (talk) 15:12, 24 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for response, Vituzzu. TOS violation is a serious charge. Can you point to a specific example of any TOS violation so that I may correct it? To my knowledge, I have not posted any private information, but only what is found in public logs, often with names concealed -- even though that is not actually required. If I have erred, of course I want to know. --Abd (talk) 19:21, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

could you please so kind and take a look at Steward requests/Global permissions#Global IP block exempt for UT-interwiki-Bot? I want to run my interwiki bot UT-interwiki-Bot on a Linux server which has an IP that's in a range which has been blocked on all wikis by you, see here. Would it be possible, to "downgrade" this block from "" to ""? With your block you have banned all IPs from until (that are 2046 IPs). Unfortunately the IP of my Linux server begins with 37.17.225.* and is therefore banned by the block you have set.

Hi translators, this is a Central Notice inviting idea creators and reviewers to participate in the Inspire Campaign. Our theme for this campaign is on addressing harassment, and it is important we be able to reach as many communities as possible, as this is a general issue affecting contributors in many projects. I would also appreciate your help translating some of the other page content related to the campaign, which I've organized here: In particular, the FAQ, main page, and Mass message should take priority.

Unfortunately, Vituzzu has personally decided that people in China do not deserve to contribute to Wikipedia. Until he explains further, I suspect it's racially and politically motivated. 18:43, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Censorship and abuse of power[edit]

Why are you blocking IPs that people in certain countries NEED in order to access Wikipedia? Is your real name Bashar al-Assad? Are you afraid to let refugees and asylum seekers speak the truth about what is happening in the world? Shame on you, Vituzzu, and shame on your fascist policies. 18:40, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

My school uses a service called Securly to route all of the traffic through a filter, and the IP has been caught in a range block. It appears that my school's IP is very dynamic. Here's the message I got:

Hi Vito, you blocked this range globally for 5 years, probably because of .173's contribs in it.wp. A German user recently complained about being affected by this block, for he's using some virtual server hosted in Norway. It's not an "open proxy" open to everybody. - Could you confine your range block to IP .173? Or would it be OK if we undo it locally in de.wp? Regards, --MBq (talk) 05:41, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Private Internet Access VPN blocked[edit]

Private Internet Access is also blocked by you. Using such a VPN is part of a series of measures a lot of people take to garantee their privacy, and it should not prevent us from contributing to Wikipedia and related websites. Legit user accounts are the way to discriminate against spam edits. You should educate yourself before taking such drastic actions.


PIA range blocked, explanation sought[edit]

Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Vituzzu ( The reason given is leaky colo + lots of spam at 168.1.53.XXX.

What is a leaky colo when that is not being diagnosed by a proctologist?

As per user Epireyn this is a dynamically assigned IP address/range by a VPN provider. Was the incidence of spam so serious that such a long block is really warranted? Or is there a commercial sub-text to this block that I'm not getting?

Blocking a range in which my IP address is included[edit]

I have only contributed for a few times since I joined Wikipedia, and mostly because our University professor told us we had to write an article for this site until 1st of December of this year, and then this happened. My current IP address is was included in a block range The block was made by Vituzzu, and the reason given is leaky colo + open proxy at And since it was implemented, I have to wait for the year 2020 before I could edit a page again, so please help me.

No renaming between November 20 and November 27[edit]


You’re getting this because you’re a steward or global renamer. The Community Tech team are working on cross-wiki watchlists. We need to add a couple of fields to the localuser table in centralauth database. In order to be able to do this, we’d need to run a script that will get in the way of renaming users. Our apologies – we realize this is getting in the way of your work.

We ask that you do not rename anyone between 00:00 November 20 (UTC) and 00:00 November 27 (UTC).

(UTC means that if you live in the Americas, it will be on the evening or afternoon of November 19 when the script starts running, and if you live in Oceania or eastern Asia, it can be closer midday on November 27 before we can be sure the script is no longer running.)

Phabricator task.

If there are any problems related to this, or you have any questions, please write me on my talk page. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:39, 17 November 2016 (UTC)


Ciao, torno sulle ragioni del blocco. Evidentemente devo aver frainteso il tuo messaggio che mi scrivetti ad agosto, il quale recitava "delle utenze puoi fare quello che vuoi, se evadi il blocco sei fuori." Io ero convinto che intendessi che da anonimo potevo fare qualche piccolo contributo, senza però utilizzare la pagina utente. Ora, mi scuso se sono evaso su Pedia, ma lo avevo fatto solo per una giusta causa, ovvero, creare i collegamenti con delle voci appena create su Wikiquote. Oltretutto il blocco mi è stato esteso anche su Quote, dove io opero in maniera corretta (a parte quei vandalismi da te scoperti). Mi dispiace molto che non mi credi, non è mia intenzione prenderti in giro, a me dispiace un sacco di non poter partecipare su wikipedia e su wikiquote per un anno intero, spero tu possa fidarti di me, anche se so che ti rimane difficile.--Prugna (talk) 17:27, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

Requesting unblock of ip address[edit]

Hello, My name ist Albritter and i wuld like to request the unblocking of the IP address The Blocked IP range is becouse of open proxy. My Classmates and I are yousing this server as an VPN exit node. The VPN server requiers certificate authentification and no one else has access to it.

Thank you.
