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 185.89.36.0/22

Status:    On hold

This was blocked in 2021 as an OP, but in the meantime the range is used by the German internet provider InternetNord ([1]). One of their customers complained to the German VRTS. I have already made an exempt for the range block on dewiki, but I would also request a total unlock globally. Thanks, XenonX3 (talk) 12:18, 23 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Tor exit node. --CptViraj (talk) 10:09, 11 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Since we have TorBlock as an extension, I thought we just grab the TorProject data (ie. ExoneraTor claims it has been Tor Exit Node for more than 48 hours prior to this report) to dynamically block exit node? If it did not block, it sounds more like a possible bug report. — regards, Revi 20:14, 14 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It wasn't blocked at the time of my request, don't know about now. Is range block helpful as it has been done in my previous Tor IP block requests? -- CptViraj (talk) 09:03, 20 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Global unblock for 2001:470::/32

Status:    In progress

The block reason incorrectly identifies this range as an open proxy. It's neither proxy nor open. I learned 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. There is no reason why blocking individual /64 or /48 networks wouldn't be effective in case of abuse.--MwGamera (talk) 22:35, 29 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Oppose Oppose You say that there is no particularly high potential of abuse, but that doesn't match our logs. It's full of spambots. AntiCompositeNumber (talk) 03:16, 31 March 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The Internet is full of spambots and it would be surprising for a range this huge to carry only benign traffic. I don't have any visibility into Wikimedia logs so can't comment on the actual numbers. Is there any reason why they couldn't be blocked individually like in all the other ranges? In any case, the block reason given doesn't match reality (it's not even weasel worded like the one on EN wiki) and I considered it prudent to try to fix the situation before requesting an exemption from a block that from my POV goes against the guidelines.--MwGamera (talk) 18:02, 4 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Support Support This block hurts me and other people. HE 6to4 tunnel is necessary for my work, ISPs in my area do not give native IPv6. --Kawtaj (talk) 07:07, 7 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Support Support This block hurts me, and I expect other people. My ISP doesn’t give good IPv6 access, and HE tunnelserver.org tunnels are my only good option. Lionel Elie Mamane (talk) 01:43, 23 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This is an open proxy/web host/colocation provided, used by one or more VPN services, if I'm not mistaken. If users with cross-wiki constructive contributions are affected, you can request a global IP block exemption. I can definitely attest to the Hurricane Electric LLC IP ranges being used for abuse and spambots on Miraheze as well. Dmehus (talk) 02:08, 23 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
It is not an open proxy nor a web host. Every user has a separate, identifiable, and individually bannable prefix routed to them (although possibly more than one). There might be, and there likely are, some open proxies, web hosts, VPNs, etc, as well as spambots and other sources of abusive traffic in it, but that doesn't explain why should the whole range be blocked instead of just the networks with those. Or why should it be claimed to be an open proxy if the actual reason for blocking is some actual (ongoing?) cross-network abuse.--MwGamera (talk) 21:02, 27 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I can only second this request. This range hasn't been blocked until some point in 2020. At least unblock people from editing when logged in. But in general don't impose a general block because most users will be legitimate, like every normal network. Just block /64 or /48 after abuse has been noticed. --Treysis (talk) 09:18, 1 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Global unblock for 147.161.237.87

Status:    In progress

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.

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.

I guess the editing trend matches what SLIME usually do, and a jawiki sysop added this account into SLIME sock list; w:ja:Special:Diff/89427416. But considering your CU report, this account may be copycat of SLIME by other LTA, or this account has been logged in by taking measure to CU such as using different IP or ISP. Even if this account is not SLIME, but this account has done vandal edits on jawikivoyage such as creating vandalism-only page that ridicules a jawiki sysop voy:ja:Special:Redirect/logid/13654, so this account can be thought to cross-wiki abuse account. --郊外生活Kogaiseikatsu (talk,contribs) 20:23, 8 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@KhanhCN Defender1st Minh I looked into this. Based on what I see, I think the best idea here would be to consult viwiki CU and tell them to have a look. There are several socks that I came across but all of those I found only edited viwiki. Please try reporting it to them first.--BRP ever 08:35, 28 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

See also here. --- Hoyanova (talk) 07:56, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Hoyanova most of these accounts were registered years ago. It would be much easier to ask local CU to check them and verify before reporting here. It's very hard to tell the accounts are related or not this way. Is there anything that confirms the relation?--BRP ever 09:48, 29 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
See central auth data. Several were already locally checkusered on en-wiki and it-wiki. Underlying IP-addies are from Turkey and highly dynamic so change all the time but the edits are unmistable. Revitalises socks cross wiki makes new socks and continues crosswiki so long term affair. Hoyanova (talk) 06:23, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Hoyanova I can see those that are already locally blocked, but I have no means to check the ones that aren't locally blocked and haven't edited in years. And for the ones that are registered recently, I do not have the old data to check with the old sockmaster. So, it would be very much easy we we go in a process like: Report local CU --> Verify/get locally blocked --> Report here to prevent crosswiki abuse. If we skip the first two, the process becomes very difficult for us.-- BRP ever 12:39, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
This process gets more difficult uneccesarily. See edits, checkusers done, comparisons and more. Furthermore it is a globally locked person. Anyway I have now requested a third checkuser on nl-wiki. Will get back to you when that is done. ITMT am sure this locked person will continue with socks... Hoyanova (talk) 14:39, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
We can't just guess and lock here. We have no crystal ball. I would very much like to discourage the practice of just bringing requests without proper local procedure unless a request is urgent/emergency or very obvious. I see several properly formatted requests from Enwiki SPI which 1) Increases the efficiency and helps in resolving backlog 2) make it easier for stewards focus on urgent/important request. I think similar process will aid in resolving the backlogs here. BRP ever 14:55, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Sorry for making it not clearer that the edits, the topics, the articles edited and created are identical (I guessed this shone clearly from the data above you can click upon) and pinpointing more clearly that there were indeed serveral checkusers performed. The one on nl-wiki now is in progress as well. Hope that suffices then. Kind regards, Hoyanova (talk) 19:55, 30 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
