Template:Uw-botublock

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Your account has been blocked from editing Wikipedia with this username. This is because your username contains the suffix "-bot", which is generally reserved for authorized bot accounts

You are encouraged to choose a new account name that meets our policy guidelines and create the account yourself. Alternatively, if you have already made edits and you wish to keep your existing contributions under a new name, then you may request a change in username by:

  1. Adding {{unblock-un|your new username here}} on your user talk page. You should be able to do this even though you are blocked, as you can usually still edit your own talk page. If not, you may wish to contact the blocking administrator by clicking on "E-mail this user" on their talk page.
  2. At an administrator's discretion, you may be unblocked for 24 hours to file a request.
  3. Please note that you may only request a name that is not already in use, so please check here for a listing of already taken names. The account is created upon acceptance, thus do not try to create the new account before making the request for a name change. For more information, please see Wikipedia:Changing username.
If you feel that you were blocked in error, you may appeal this block by adding below this notice the text {{unblock|Your reason here}}, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first.

  • This template has been carefully designed based on guidelines by the user warnings project.
  • Please refer to the index of message templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending. Note: Only administrators can block users; adding a block template does not constitute a block. See RFAA to request that a user be blocked.
  • Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:Uw-botublock}} rather than {{Uw-botublock}}.
    • Although this template must be substituted in the user talk page, it has also been designed to display properly when substitution is not possible.
  • This template uses a parser function. To give greater detail to your message, you may specify: the block duration, a specific reason for the block, and auto-include your signature.
    {{subst:Uw-botublock|anon=yes|time=Duration|reason=For a different reason|notalk=yes|page=Targeted page|sig=yes}}
  • Notes:
    • If you do not set a block expiry, replace time=Duration with indef=yes.
    • An already indefinite block template does not require the time or indef parameters.
    • If not blocking an anonymous user, omit the anon parameter.
    • Include the page parameter to refer to a page on which the conduct supporting the block occurred.
    • The notalk parameter should always be omitted unless the user cannot edit their own talk page.
    • The optional for parameter can be used if the word "for" before the block reason doesn't grammatically work. For example, if for=per is written, the block notice will say "blocked from editing per". Don't use this parameter if you don't want to change the word "for".
  • See also Template:Blocked user for user page notices.
