Template:Uw-softerblock

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Welcome to Wikipedia. Because we have a policy against usernames that give the impression that the account represents a group, organization or website, I have blocked this account; please take a moment to create a new account with a username that represents only yourself as an individual and which complies with our username policy.

You should also read our conflict of interest guideline and be aware that promotional editing is not acceptable regardless of the username you choose.

If your username does not represent a group, organization or website, you may appeal this username block by adding the text {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice.

You may simply create a new account, but you may prefer to change your username to one that complies with our username policy, so that your past contributions are associated with your new username. If you would prefer to change your username, you may appeal this username block by adding the text {{unblock-un|new username|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}} below this notice. Thank you.

This template should not be used on user talk pages of accounts with (account creation blocked) status. Only use this template on user talk pages of accounts with (autoblock disabled) status.

  • 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-softerblock}} rather than {{Uw-softerblock}}.
    • 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-softerblock|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.
