This page hosts requests for global (un)blocks, (un)locks and hidings.


If you are here because you have been affected by a global block, please see Global blocks/FAQ for more information about global block and routes to appeal.

Note: (un)blocks apply to IP addresses; and (un)locks apply to global accounts.

Requests for global (un)block

Symbol comment vote.svg Please be sure to follow the instructions below:
Your request might be rejected if you don't follow the instructions.
Please also review Global blocking . Only IP addresses can be globally blocked at this moment. Please see #Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding if your request involves an account.
Global blocks don't affect Meta-Wiki, so if your IP address is blocked, you can still appeal here. IP addresses that cause disruption on Meta should be reported at Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat instead of here so that they can be blocked locally.
Please describe the kind of cross wiki abusive activity you see from the IP. Saying an IP is a long term abuser is not helpful, but saying "IP vandalizes at ban.wikipedia, no.wikipedia and vi.wikipedia" is. This is especially important for range blocks. If you do not provide enough details, your request might be declined.
Instructions for making a request

Before requesting, make sure that:

  1. You know the IP address(es) you wish to have globally blocked or unblocked.
  2. For blocks, the global blocking criteria are met.
  3. For unblocks, your request addresses the original reason for blocking the IP, if any.

To make a request for the address(es) to be blocked or unblocked

Copy the template below to the bottom of this section and explain why the address(es) should be blocked/unblocked.
=== Global block/unblock for [[Special:Contributions/Some IP address|Some IP address]] ===
{{Status}} <!-- Do not remove this template -->
* {{Luxotool|IP address}}
Description, evidence, diffs, etc. --~~~~
When requesting that your IP be unblocked, note that stewards need to know your IP address to even consider a request.
To find your IP, please visit https://www.whatismyip.com/
You are not required to disclose your IP in public - you may make requests privately to any steward on IRC or by email at: stewards@wikimedia.org

Global unblock for 147.161.237.87

Status:    On hold

When trying to edit a page, I received the block error "The IP address or range 147.161.237.87 has been globally blocked (disabled) by Jon Kolbert for the following reason(s): Open proxy/Webhost. This block will expire on 15:19, 31 October 2024."

This assessment is incorrect; the IP listed is part of a larger range operated by ZScaler (AS62044, 147.161.236.0/23 as well as many others). The IP range is used for Internet egress for corporate customers, who use ZScaler products for MFA-secured access to internal networks. My employer mandates use of ZScaler and it cannot be disabled on the machine. ZScaler do not operate any open public proxies, nor do they offer "privacy" VPN products, it's purely business use for SMEs & corporates. --Chris W. (talk | WP profile) 13:12, 16 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Support Support The block reason incorrectly identifies this range as an open proxy. It's neither proxy nor open. I learned in an earlier request that some admins believe the Hurricane Electric's service makes it “like” an open proxy, but note that none of the reasons usually given as the rationale for the no open proxies policy apply to it. There is no anonymity nor particularly high potential of abuse. This should allow to run a sleeper check, if there is indeed sleepers in this range.

I added another Freedome ip-range (168.1.192.0/18) --Zache (talk) 07:44, 27 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jon Kolbert: 95.175.96.144/28 (part of 95.175.96.0/19 blocked by you) is mapped to a software company named w:en:Solita (company). There was a question why they were blocked so that they cannot even create accounts. I answered because IP-range is part of a larger block of Freedome as an open proxy. However, if it is possible to somehow allow them to edit it would be nice. Are there better options than unblocking locally in different wikis? --Zache (talk) 13:31, 16 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Global unblock for 163.116.135.0/24

Status:    In progress

I was affected by this block (specifically at IP 163.116.135.91) on English Wikipedia, where I am an editor. This is almost certainly related to blocks on various Netskope IPs noted in this discussion. Netskope has a number of IPs beyond just that in the 163.116.128.0/17 range. It remains, just as earlier in 2021, a huge stretch that Netskope services are blocked on the open proxies policy. It is not an open proxy inasmuch as it is a corporate network security company. You literally cannot even subscribe to Netskope without getting a corporate quote. Users cannot choose an exit node. The range of the block also is rather large.

I think all Netskope exit nodes should be changed to soft block, per the response from that steward request from over a year ago. There exist continued requests for users (eg 1, 2, 3) to be unblocked from Netskope services. The default of blocking all service from Netskope seems to me to be wildly overbroad.

This address consistently corrupts the Hebrew Wikipedia. It belongs to only one end user, and after I blocked it for a period it corrupts other projects. The findings are backed up by the CheckUser action I performed. The vandal is known to us, and every few months he changes address. I will request a global block (also for user accounts) for three months. Thanks, דגש (talk) 17:55, 10 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Requests for global (un)lock and (un)hiding

Symbol comment vote.svg Note that global blocking currently only applies to IPs, due to a technical limitation. If you wish to request a named account for global [un]locking, please request a global [un]lock here instead. Be sure to follow the instructions below:
  • Your request might be rejected if your request doesn't include the necessary information.
  • Warning! This page is publicly viewable. If the account name is grossly insulting or contains personal information please contact a steward privately in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect or email your request to the stewards VRT queue at stewards@wikimedia.org (direct wiki interface) but do not post it here. Thanks.
  • Warning! This is not the place to ask for locks based on your opinion that someone is disruptive. Global locks are used exclusively against vandalism and spam, not because of content disputes, not because you think that someone deserves to be globally blocked. In such cases, you should ask for local blocks at appropriate places.
  • If you are globally locked, you should appeal your lock to stewards(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Please describe abusive activity of an account before reporting them here. Since stewards are often not active at projects the reported accounts are, things that seem obvious to you may not be equally obvious to the reviewing steward.

Instructions for making a request

Before requesting that a global account be (un)locked, please be sure that:

  1. You have evidence of cross-wiki disruption from the account(s).
  2. You can show that it is not feasible to use local-only blocks or other measures like page protection to combat the disruption.
  3. You have considered making the request in #wikimedia-stewardsconnect, especially for account names which will be hidden, or for urgent requests.
To make a request for an account to be locked or unlocked
Copy one of the codes below to the bottom of this section and explain why the account(s) should be locked/unlocked.
=== Global lock/unlock for Foo ===
{{status}} <!-- do not remove this template -->
* {{LockHide|username}}
* {{LockHide|username|hidename=1}} <!-- if you do not want the name to be visible on this page -->
