Hello vituzzu, my IP Adress is blocked, I don't know the reasons (it would be better if before blocking, inform us about reasons) but i guess is because i move from Maiquetia, Venezuela to Beijing, China. Thanks beforehand for your kind solution of my problem.

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

I have only contributed for a few times since I joined Wikipedia, and then this happened. My current IP address 208.123.223.254 was included in a huge block range 208.123.208.0/20. The block was made by Vituzzu, and the reason given is leaky colo + open proxy at 208.123.223.242.s. And since it was implemented, I had to wait for the year 2020 before I could edit a page again, so please help me.

Block of IP range 37.17.224.0/21[edit]

Hi Vituzzu,

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 "37.17.224.0/21" to "37.17.224.0/24"? With your block you have banned all IPs from 37.17.224.0 until 37.17.231.255 (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. If you could change the block from "37.17.224.0/21" to "37.17.224.0/24" I wouldn't need a global IP block exempt for my bot UT-interwiki-Bot.

Thanks in advance and greetings from Austria. --Udo T. (talk) 19:33, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Unblock Request[edit]

Hi,

I'm new to Wikinews and as part of a university assessment am required to use the platform, however I've been blocked from editing articles and I'm not really sure why.

The reason given is leaky colo + lots of spam. I am using a VPN, but the block started on November 27 2015.


Hello my Ip is blocked cause i used a proxy when i was in China, well in China is not allowed to use wikipedia so why did you cancel me?

Unblock Google proxy[edit]

Hello Vituzzu, since May 18 My Google BOT(NeechalBOT) unable to run due to error globalblocking-ipblocked-range. Google use dynamic ip eg:107.178.194.178,107.178.195.164 which was blocked exactly last year, however wikipedia recognize the cookies and BOT was able to update then. But recently it throws error. Did you have any idea about recent changes or is it if possible to unblock the google ip? -Neechalkaran (talk) 07:42, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Hello Vituzzu

I just received an email from a French person, who tried to edit an article today and was informed he was blocked. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spécial:Contributions/45.32.146.74

The reason you gave was leaking cool + open proxy at 45.32.89.47.

Obviously, this person is not the original reason why this address was blocked. Do you know why it was blocked ? Can it be unblocked ? If not, what do you recommend for him to be able to edit ?

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. 103.10.197.202 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?

Range Block Reversal[edit]

Hi Vituzzu,

I'm TJH2018 on enwiki, and I recently just switched schools. I was sad to learn that my school's IP is blocked. 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:

Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis.

The block was made by Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is amazon webservices + abuse from 54.153.32.213.

Start of block: 10:13, 21 April 2015 Expiration of block: 10:13, 21 April 2020

You can contact Vituzzu to discuss the block. You cannot use the "Email this user" feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is 54.153.43.59, and the blocked range is 54.153.0.0/16. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

If you could unblock, that would be great.

Hi Vito, you blocked this range globally for 5 years, probably because of .173's contribs in it.wp.

Hi, I am a Chinese user and I have to edit pages via proxy because of GFW. I use shadowsocks and vps server.It's safe. My IP address of proxy is 107.170.3.233, and user name Mengql12. Please check it, thank you!

No Internet at home[edit]

Hi Vituzzu, since 3 days, I have no Internet at home. I'm not talking about WiFi, but about DSL. I had tried several things already, initialized the router, re-entered the connection data for the host, but I don't get a connection. Now I'm sitting in the local library, and I wanted to post this problem to de:Wikipedia:Auskunft, to get help from other users in pinning down the problem. But it tells me that I cannot edit there, because you blocked the IP of my local library. May I ask you to fix this, please. Greetings,--Ratzer (talk) 10:22, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

BTW, the IP here in the library at the moment is 89.163.144.197.--Ratzer (talk) 10:26, 24 September 2016 (UTC)

Request clarification on a range IP Block[edit]

Hi there! I just notified of an IP block: Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is leaky colo + open proxy at 198.71.235.84 . My IP is: 198.71.240.7 yet I seem to be affected by it.

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.

Epireyn


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 (meta.wikimedia.org). 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?

Peter S Strempel  Page | Talk  23:29, 7 October 2016 (UTC)

@Peterstrempel and Epireyn: sorry but your messages got buried under a pile of messages/notifications. Yep, the block was definitely needed, did you consider asking for a GIPBE? --Vituzzu (talk) 00:58, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Request for unblocking of my IP[edit]

Hello, Vituzzu. I work in Wikipedia is already 7 years. And believe me, my reputation is impeccable, despite the fact that I made a huge number of edits in different sections. 3 days ago I got a block of the dynamic range, resulting in at my home I can edit anywhere from the host computer, but from my laptop I can edit only one section - be.wiki where I have more than five years of an administrator. I wrote to you, and you not only do not help me, but did not even answer me. Your neglect is very disappointing. I am the mother of two little twins and for me is extremely difficult to find time for the internet, and you added me strong negative emotions.

I beg you to help me as soon as possible, take for my account to the exclusion of the block. Thank you in advance--Хомелка (talk) 20:03, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

My current IP address is 5.254.65.178 was included in a block range 5.254.64.0/20. The block was made by Vituzzu, and the reason given is leaky colo + open proxy at 5.254.65.21. 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]

Hi,

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.)

Blocco[edit]

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)

@Vituzzu: We don't use an anonymization service. We have an own IP network 217.114.220.64/26 in the range you blocked (217.114.208.0/20). Another customer of this data center provider has also an own network in this big range and offers an anonymization service with e.g. exit node IP 217.114.213.19. That is no reason to block the big range and deny access for many subnets of this range!

Hi Vituzzu, I rather not create an account and the VPS I use is dedicated...somehow using it as a vpn connection says it's banned here[edit]

Hi/Allo du Québec (j'ai vu que tu peux communiquer en français, cela m'arrive si peu que je vais essayer)

Je loue un serveur personnel et personne d'autre que moi possède cet "hostname"/IP, il a été créé pour moi par la compagnie ou je paies grâce aux merveilleux services offerts qui serait un bordel à gérer par moi-même localement et j'obtiens une couche d'anonymité (partielle évidemment) car je peux m'y connecter par OpenVPN. Je ne sais pas qui dans le "range" de mon IP a causé des problèmes, mais je ne devrais pas être punis pour des clients de cette compagnie qui agisse de manière incorrecte. Je fais très peu de corrections, environ 5 par années donc, je ne vois pas l'avantage de me faire yet another account, t'sais? (Après 20 ans sur Internet, il me faut un fichier texte encrypté pour y inscrire tout mes comptes et mots de passe). SVP considère de débloquer mon serveur.

Merci, Un Québécois sans mauvaise atittude

Sorry to bother you, but my IP address was blocked by you for using VPN. I am aware of the use of VPN is illegal here in Wikipedia, but I have a reasonable reason for this. I don't know if you understand that in People's Republic of China, the country that I live in, has been blocking Wikipedia for years on end, so it's impossible for me to edit Wiki pages without a VPN software. I hope you know the difficulty here and unblock my IP address as soon. I'll appreciate it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 怡景小学 (talk)

@怡景小学: you seem to be eligible for GIPBE, which you can ask at that link. --Vituzzu (talk) 00:41, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

IP blocked today[edit]

Hi there,

I was editing yesterday with no problem. Today I'm getting an error message about my IP address being blocked. I haven't made any changes that I'm aware of.

Here's the error message I recieved:

@Jlvsclrk: are you using a VPN or a VPS? --Vituzzu (talk) 00:39, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi. VPN. I have a laptop on which I can continue to edit but the other one is now blocked. Same network used for both as far as I can tell. Not critical since I do have the one machine that works. Jlvsclrk (talk) 00:50, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Puoi aiutarmi?[edit]

Ciao sono il "leader" del team di sviluppo che sta creando freeDroid OS.

freeDroid OS è un sistema operativo basato su Android OS ma con la particolarità di essere totalmente Open Source

La prima versione verrà sviluppata solamente dal mio team per "dettare" le linee guida, mentre tutte le altre ovviamente saranno sviluppate dalla community

Vorrei creare una pagina su wikipedia per progetto

Posso farlo?

é la prima volta che provo a scrivere una pagina quindi penso di fare molti errori

grazie

Blocked IP[edit]

Hello there Vituzzu. I'm writing this to inform you of a block in an IP address I'm connecting from. There seems to be a block around my area and I can't edit using my account. I've been able to do so for the last several months now while I was away. But when I returned home, it said that the IP address I'm using have been blocked until 2020. I do believe it is a mistake on your behalf and hope for an unblock of the IP address. The reason that is given is "leaky colo + lots of spam at 128.199.242.223". I would respectfully ask that you would give a proper explanation regarding this block and if it is possible to unblock registered users from this IP address. It said the range of the block is 128.199.0.0/16. I do hope that this issue will be solved swiftly. Thank you for taking your time to read this. Jeluang Terluang (talk) 04:26, 28 January 2017 (UTC)

I always connect from my Samsung J5 and never had problems, except that time I had to intervene a Sterward and make me a user free ip block.

Range block 91.9.96.0/19[edit]

Hello Vituzzu,

I believe that you globally blocked the range 91.9.96.0/19 with an expiration date of 20 November 2016. My notes do not indicate the starting date, and I cannot find the log entry. If you recall the circumstances, I would appreciate any information you can give me. It may have been globally blocked user Tobias Conradi, operating in iawiki as various IPs in that range. My concern is that the same user has changed to a new Internet Service Provider and is again active in iawiki.
Thanks!

Unblock Request[edit]

Hi, I'm a newer wikipedia user and editor who only edits wikipedia for a hobby I have where I edit election information boxes and screenshot the changes, never actually saving the edits. Occasionally I add pictures of politicians to wikipedia. In both pictures that were not explicitly mine I specified that I did not know the particular copyright information of the image. However, it appears my last image has driven me to be blocked from wikipedia. Because I never mean any harm and I don't intend to publish any of these images that I add to the site. I also promise to never upload an image that wasn't mine to the site again. Could I please be unblocked from the site? Here is my information page:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Preferences

The IP block range is 216.244.64.0/19 and the IP blocked is 216.244.82.18.

Thank you.

Block suddenly affecting me[edit]

I was editing the Mass Effect: Andromeda page on Wikipedia on my account (since the place I am at right now is affected by an IP block on all unregistered users), and suddenly, just when I was making another edit, this happened.

"Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis.

The block was made by Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is leaky colo + open proxy at 198.7.62.129.

Start of block: 23:15, 2015 April 20 Expiration of block: 23:15, 2020 April 20

Your current IP address is 198.7.62.204, and the blocked range is 198.7.56.0/21. Please include all above details in any queries you make."

This block didn't impact the previous 300 or so edits I've made from the same location in the last year or so (and the last 5 edits or so I made from the same place I'm sitting right now about an hour ago), but suddenly, it does. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, but is this an issue on my side or Wikipedia's side? And what can I do if it's from my side? I haven't had any problems before.

SOS[edit]

Bonjour et permettez-moi de me présenter : je suis Claude Piard, jadis contributeur sous le pseudo de Claude PIARD aujourd’hui quasi-banni dans des conditions pour le moins contestables. Et vous êtes mon ultime recours pour dénoncer des dérives nuisibles in fine à la réputation de Wikepdia. J'ai en effet déjà tenté d'alerter le CAR qui s'est déclaré incompétent puis fais appel récemment aux bureaucrates où mes messages sur leur PdD, revertés dans les délais les plus brefs par Habertrix, n'entrent même plus suite à une prise de contrôle que n'approuverait probablement pas la CNIL. Mais ce genre de manœuvre risquée est bien révélateur en soi de l'urgence qu'il y a pour certain(e)s de "cacher les poussières sous le tapis".

Excusez-moi donc de vous ramener loin en arrière. En novembre 2013 Litlok est intervenu sur la PaS pour TI d’un article consacré à l’ « Attitude des juifs sous le régime nazi » pour suggérer son transfert dans la catégorie Recherche en histoire de Wikiversité, ce que j’ai fait le 6 janvier 2014 non sans provoquer de réactions de Lgd/Alginatus, longtemps sous simple IP.

Deux ans plus tard, en octobre 2016 la fausse manoeuvre d’un collègue et ami qui a rapatrié par erreur les travaux résultant de l'évolution de cet article sur Wikiversité a été prétexte au procès le plus rapide de l’histoire wikipédienne. Un RA pour « désorganisation de l’encyclopédie » initié par Heddryin à mon encontre déposé le 22 octobre à 12 heures 46 a abouti à mon blocage indéfini le 24 octobre à 18 heures 41, sanction prononcée par Lomita – après une large consultation certes – aux motifs allégués de « WP-POINT, meatpuppetry et contournement de décision communautaire », la décision étant appliquée par Starus. Le RA initial a été clos dès le 23 par la même Lomita à 9 heures 33 – soit 15 heures après son ouverture – pour « conflit d’édition » trois minutes exactement après le dépôt de mon argumentaire, la discussion se poursuivant ensuite uniquement sur le BA entre administrateurs où celui-ci est ignoré.

Mes tentatives d’appel au RA puis au CaR sont rapidement éludés avec pour seul effet le blocage de mon IP (2A01:E35:2E8F:19D0:E574:9CCA:1C5C:7825) et l’effacement de ma page présentation ainsi que sa PdD probablement trop compromettantes pour mes détracteurs. Depuis d’épisodiques tentatives de modestes interventions lors d’éphémères déblocages de mon IP se traduisent par son reblocage immédiat par Lomita au seul prétexte du test du canard, empêchant ainsi toute remise en cause de sa décision. Et actuellement ma détermination à faire rétablir l’exactitude des faits me vaut en RA une proposition de bannissement de la part d’Heggesipe. L’IP flottante de mon téléphone me permet néanmoins de porter à votre connaissance cette situation sur laquelle je reste prêt à fournir tous les renseignements complémentaires utiles. A cette fin, et faute d'autres moyens, mon adresse e-mail était accessible via mon ancienne page Claude PIARD. Celle-ci est certes effacée et je suppose que vous avez les outils nécessaires pour la ré-ouvrir. Néanmoins je me permets de vous la confirmer : crjpiard@free.fr

Merci d’avoir pris le temps de me lire et bonne semaine. --Claude PIARD (talk) 16:57, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Cette version archivée avant effacement de ma page de discussion confirme et explicite ce qui précède. Elle démontre également que j’ai épuisé tous les recours avant de vous solliciter. Sans résultats autre que provoquer une demande de bannissement. Indifférence générale ? Complot ? Quoiqu’il en soit le remplacement du respect des principes fondateurs et des recommandations écrites par le concept de « décision communautaire » ( i.e. « au soviet ») a de quoi inquiéter pour l’avenir de Wikipédia francophone--Claude PIARD (talk) 09:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC).

Request for the IP blockade exception[edit]

Hi,Vituzzu. I was frequently blocked by Wikipedia because of my IP address is regard as a web host provider. When I want to edit the pages through my computer, it made lots of inconvenience to me.

I was excepted to the IP blockade in Chinese Wikipedia in the past. When I creating new articles in Chinese Wikipedia, the blockade made me cannot link those articles to the related articles in other wikis. Also, when I need to improve the articles in other languages Wikipedia, it created lot of inconvenience to me because I can only submit changes by my phone. So I hope that you can unblock me ASAP, thanks! --Momocalbee (talk) 11:07, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

Wrong link for global Open proxy blocks[edit]

Hi, I just would like to let you know that on May 4th somebody changed the link for "Open proxy" description in Special:GlobalBlockList. At 00:12 it was "m:NOP" correctly, while at 11:15 it became just "NOP" [2] and in different wikis the link leads to various unrelated local articles named "NOP". Maybe you know how to revert this change. Regards, Michał Sobkowski (talk) 13:22, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

Question about the block of TOR IPs[edit]

Hello Vituzzu, recently I tried to edit a de:Wikipedia article using TOR... Well, you can imagine what happened. I remembered having read somewhere that Wikimedia does block TOR IP addresses with the reason that proxy IPs are often used to do vandalism etc.. Now my question to you as steward/admin/etc. is: Why does this affect Wikimedia (project) logged in users? As far as I know you can log in and edit pages as logged in user even if your IP address is blocked (at least it was written somewhere in de:wp), but obviously this does not apply to TOR users. I can imagine that TOR users could cause more than some trouble, but when the user is known (because he is logged in) I think he should be trusted (same as the not TOR users with blocked IP).

Sorry for that noobish question, I know that you have a lot to do and are spammed with IP (un)block complains... I hope I do not waste your time :)

WP Turkey blocked[edit]

Hi, Wikipedia blocked in Turkey. Turkish wikipedians began the Wiki with special VPN application. I am IP block exemption in just Turkish Wiki. I do not edit other wiki projects. I am uncomfortable with this. A few minutes ago I wrote James Robertson article. But I could not connect to other languages in here. A solution please for my IP problems. Thanks.

Block Reason?[edit]

Hi Vituzzu, can you explain why you blocked me? I saw something about an IP proxy or something or other (gibberish to me) but I'm assuming it's because I started using the Opera browser's built-in VPN. Is it really a problem for me to use a VPN for my own internet security/privacy? It certainly shouldn't be. TylerDurden8823 (talk) 02:12, 18 May 2017 (UTC)

Unblock[edit]

I am an editor from Turkey at en:WP. Since a couple of days, I have been experiencing trouble to access en:WP, and get the error message "Secure Connection Failed". When I switch to open proxy, I can access en:WP in read-only mode. I am blocked with the message "You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reasons: Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis" under the page title "View source for ...". Is it possible to unblock somehow? Thanks. CeeGee (talk) 16:46, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

IP block exemption[edit]

Hey,

I'm a Turkish Wikipedia user and after blocking of Wikipedia in Turkey, we use VPN (In the first days we were using DNS but DNS was also blocked) but you blocked some VPN IP adresses. Can you give me IP block exemption for commons especially. I need to upload some files.

Thanks. --Hedda Gabler (eski) (talk) 23:32, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Unblock open proxy IP[edit]

Ji! I am from Turkey, and experienced difficulties to edit WP in the past. I can now do it over open proxy and after receiving an "IP block exemption" granted. However, now I realized that I am not able to link the article en:Gökçeler, Milas I've created recently to its tr.WP counterpart because you blocked the IP 188.166.232.125. Would you please grant an "IP block exemption" and notify me. Thanks. CeeGee (talk) 06:17, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Re:Diritti utente[edit]

Escludendo i due progetti in interlingua (la lingua la conosco abbastanza e sto cercando di coinvolgere gli altri utenti di ia.wp anche se al momento solo uno ha fatto qualche modifica effettiva). Non ho intenzione di collezione flag nè questo è il mio scopo ho semplicemente optato per questa strada (chiedere il flag in un numero molto contenuto di wiki) per poter iniziare a dare una mano nella cancellazione di pagine soggette a vandalismo prima di fare richiesta come global sysop perché pensavo che visto che è passato solo un mese da quando sono diventato gr fosse necessario più tempo prima di essere gs comunque vedrò di fare la richiesta per diventarlo nelle prossime settimane. Comunque ogni richiesta che faccio non ha secondi fini ma solo fini pratici: il flag di amministratore in questi casi l'ho richiesto:

  • Su ia.wiktionary e ia.Wikibooks per cercare di far ripartire i due progetti anche dal lato tecnico del software e degli accessori, oltre che a poter incitare gli altri utenti di ia.wp a partecipare a questi progetti.
  • Su chr.wiktionary l'ho richiesto per poter oltre che cancellare pagine segnate come spam per poter fare delle sostituzioni ,che credo servano per migliorare i vari lemmi, tramite awb e il flag in questo caso credo che dopo i tre mesi non lo rinnoverò ma mi serviva solo ora per poter praticare queste correzioni (come potresti aver notato io non mi soffermo su un singolo progetto nè su una lingua ma cerco di essere il più globale possibile facendo quello che posso in tutti i progetti Wikimedia e non solo come membro del SWMT ma anche per poter dare una mano ai progetti anche in cose che sembrano piccole ma possono essere di aiuto (creazione di categorie in maniera corretta, correzioni nelle voci nei redirect ecc. ) --Samuele2002 (Talk!) 22:03, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

Unblock most of the range 54.153.0.0/16[edit]

Hi, I noticed a block on the above range which is very wide and affects many users - most of which are from organisations which do not correspond with the initial address causing the abuse (54.153.32.213). I believe each individual IP address in that hosted range could correspond to thousands of users. Thanks. DivermanAU (talk) 05:11, 27 June 2017 (UTC)

Update — Can you please unblock the range apart from the problem IP address?

Ragioni del blocco IP[edit]

Ciao Vituzzu, sono RedDead720, un utente di it.wikipedia da circa due anni e mezzo. Oggi, mentre cercavo di fare una modifica, ho notato un avviso che mi informava che il mio indirizzo IP era stato bloccato su tutte le wiki dalle 14:10 del 4 agosto 2017 alle 14:10 dell'11 agosto 2017 per Long-term abuse. Il mio IP attuale è 151.37.159.189, e l'intervallo bloccato è 151.37.0.0/16. Cercando un po' ho notato che tale IP era stato incluso nella lista di possibili sockpuppet di un utente problematico, quindi credo si sia trattato di un malinteso, anche visto il gran numero di messaggi simili al mio su questa pagina. Comunque vorrei sapere perché sono stato bloccato e se è possibile sbloccarmi, visto che credo di non meritare il blocco. Grazie mille in anticipo. --RedDead720 (talk) 11:39, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

FYI and thanks[edit]

Thank you for your comments on Steward requests/Checkuser That's all been handled now so this is not a request, merely for your information. This was not merely fishing for the identity of Sci-fi-; Michael skater may have been checked with the first sockpuppet investigation that he filed; at that point, none of the later-identified socks had edited, so it would come up clean. That skater request was under a different master name (Psychicbias) , and was thus, at the time the next request was filed, not the same report (as Blastikus). The next report did not mention Michael skater. What a checkuser would see was a pile of socks that were identical users. Was it noticed that Michael skater was one of them? Apparently not. There were other accounts also not noted. What we know now is that, in fact, Michael skater created an army of false flag sock puppets, impersonations, as an attack on the user he had complained about. He is probably an LTA, w:User:Mikemikev. (Previously not globally disruptive; now disruptive on three wikis.) --Abd (talk) 19:11, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

Adjusted text[edit]

There has been a request to inform all who voted in the RfC about interlinking accounts involved with paid editing about the following adjustment in the "statement of issue" on Sept 18th, 2017.

It was clarified that this effort will help deal not only with impersonation of specific Wikipedians but also claims of being in good standing made by those who are not.[3] Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:59, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Requesting lifting of block on 188.166.0.0/16.[edit]

I've been putting this off for since March but I'd like to request a lifting of the block. I can't request a single IP since my ISP only provides dynamic IPs. This is my house connection and I can't even reset my Wikipedia password because I'm blocked globally. --176.42.175.54 17:01, 5 October 2017 (UTC) Edit: Never mind, it turned out the proxy block is referring to the Wikipedia mirror I'm using (vikipedi.pw) since Wikipedia itself is blocked nationwide. I guess Wikipedia is read-only for me. --176.42.175.54 17:03, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

How get unblocked?[edit]

I checked something this morning thinking I was protecting myself from unwanted intrusions (not allowing identification of where I am) not knowing that Wikipedia may require this identification to be allowed. Please tell me how I reset this identification switch to allow what Wikipedia needs before allowing me to edit. I note that Elockid whom I'm supposed to contact on this has "left Wikipedia". I include the following as per request:

Your IP address is in a range which has been blocked on all wikis. The block was made by Vituzzu (meta.wikimedia.org). The reason given is leaky colo + open proxy at 173.244.195.18. Start of block: 13:25, 17 February 2016 Expiration of block: 13:25, 17 February 2021 You can contact Vituzzu to discuss the block. You cannot use the "Email this user" feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is 173.244.209.26, and the blocked range is 173.244.192.0/19. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

Help design a new feature to stop harassing emails[edit]

Hi there,

The Anti-Harassment Tools team plans to start develop of a new feature to allow users to restrict emails from new accounts. This feature will allow an individual user to stop harassing emails from coming through the Special:EmailUser system from abusive sockpuppeting accounts.

We’re inviting you to join the discussion because you have experience dealing with abusive sockpuppeting accounts and you work across many wikis. We think that your insights will help us build a better feature.

You can leave comments on this discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.

It is important to hear from a broad range of people who are interested in the design of the tool, so we hope you join the discussion and let us know how it would work best for you.

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.

The issue and missing sides 2[edit]

Hi,

Thanks for leaving note on my mr wikipedia talk page. First of all, I wish you take note of my detail breifing (missing side 1) in two immidiate sections on User talk:Bishdatta, if you have not done so till now. User:Bishdatta has been member of wmf board of trustee and currently is on the Funds Dissemination Committee. You read them and essential part I will give you latter in this discussion if needed. Most important you need to take note is, it is not gender bias issue as one of the grant proposer trying to make on talk page; this aspect is explained in detail to user User:Bishdatta on her talk page.

Please also do study and take note that blocks from Marathi Wikipedia are in fewest possible numbers compared to any other wikipedia community and usually are of smallest possible duration. We are usually inclusivist for Marathi language people to the best possible level, which you will not find on any of other wikis and I will give you ennumber of illustrations towards that. If at all any blocks are required we prefer limited edit filters for essential reasons over entire block rather we strive more for cultural improvement rather than blocks. But some times it takes time to device apropriate filters too in those cases at times we need to resort to temporary blocks.

While one of the policy page is blocked currently to avoid vandalism, rest of village pumps are working. There is one special village pump on mr wikipeda to review and comment on sysop activity. besides at personal level I do have my own user subpage where other users can criticize with full freedom of expression - and I have been criticised at times and those criticisms have been taken in good spirit . Rather it is Marathi Wikipedia or Marathi language forums you will find me viceforus supporter and implementer of freedom of expression. And I can cite ampple of examples.

One of the page which is blocked is checked by another sysop. Some one who knowns Marathi language will understand on Marathi wikipedia that we both the beurocrats do not take each others sides just like that but we do cross check the various factors in indipendant point of view. For example you take latest main page article mr:दिवाळी is mainly wrtten by a woman editor and on talk page of the article we both beurocrats discussed the pros and cons of content in very different perspectives. So some one is trying to make out that Marathi wikipedia is closed thing of a single beurocrat is not right.

The issue and the missing side 3[edit]

The next problem what we are currently dealing at mr wikipedia, which I have explained on talk page of User talk:Bishdatta is problem of vicious environment caused on mr wikipeda due to attempts of fund farming and syndication by vested interest to get wmf funds, which wmf wishes to distribute liberally.

Since frankly like other language wiki communities our mr community also ignored issue of who is applying for funds and whether they are being used for Marathi language or not. See discussion on hi:विकिपीडिया:चौपाल they have been taken for ride by other language people for fund farming by placing just a proposal on meta. Tell me is it really reasonable if I place a fund proposal for Italian language which I never worked for. More over funny thing is some of them are asking for funds in the name of expat community of India origin staying in USA. Many of India origin people may be earning more than many of local USA. Rather than asking for funds they should be supporting with funds. Now this happened with Hindi Wikipedia. Now with these proposers they are from well to do Indian metropolitan cities where in it is not too difficult to rais funds locally. Still if they want to collect funds from wmf cause they are less monitored so be it, we had no issue no competition we want to do only encyclopedic work. But unfortunately some of these fund seekers are getting involved in infighting and they are using mr wiki village pump to do this infighting is some thing trouble some.

See in India you show some carrots you get atleast some supportes for every thing and anything. If we leave this to democratic forces which wikipedia is not then syndicates will keep enjoying fund farming but environment on local wikis will remain vicious. To avoid that Undersigned had to reign in with a new policy asking for, what we have decided to do is ask fund seekers to write more number of Marathi lanuage encyclopedic paragraphs, and support from simmiller more number of encyclopedic paragraph writer - so we can keep people of dubious credentials who make very few edits to show that they or on mr-wikipedia and get involved in fund seeking syndicate. the second new rule is to take marathi language professor or teacher of their choice as mentor / guide so there will be some minimal level of direction and sending wmf funds for given purpose will have a proper cross check. While I have started the policy rather than leaving it to mercy of fund seeking syndicates I am involving entire Marathi language seniors including professors and senior encyclopedic writers from across state sans vested interest and people with conflict of intrest and they will redraft Marathi wikipedia policy and the same will be communicated to funds dessimination committee of wmf in due course.

The funds seekers who want to prove their credibility will accept the policy; the rest of them are going to create some level of noise, that we have to anticipate and bear with the same until they fall in the line.

One of the proposer of grant request under discussion has started her wiki carreer only with grant pages ! Let that be. While drafting new policy they can not be considered since it amounts to conflict of interest and unfair accounting practice. So until an effective limited purpose filter is deviced the proposers are blocked for limited time. Secondly Marathi Wikipedia is already having a policy that non - Marathi language people can not take part in policy making on Marathi wikipedia nor they can use non-Marathi language liberally on talk pages. So freedom from blocking is just notional for the user you are discussing; where as it is very much a question of project indipendance for Marathi Wikipedia community.

Last but not least here let me cite you one more anecdote or anology is recent example of Russia government taking undue interest in USA election. I could not have blocked one user having conflict of interest and leave another unblocked specially when one of the village pump on Marathi wikpedia is being abused , the abusers would get more chance to increase abuse level with even unseemingly unintentional action of the blocked user -hence the need for preemptive action arose. It is simmiller thing about the user reffered by you has prima facia conflict of interest and is from non-Marathi language background, to leave any chance. At the face value it may seem preemptive at this juncture, until a proper edit filter comes into place we did not have any other option but to take the said action as a temporary measure. As earlier said we at mr wikipedia on our own as part of free culture have used blocking to the least.

This unfortunate phase has come, but will not last long for sure. We know our way ahead. We belive in good stewardsship the way you belive in, and expect wmf funds are spent with due care and healthy environment is maintained on our project. Thanks for your concern as steward.

Warm regards
