IPv6 prefix overly blocked[edit]

Hi Jasper,

I am aware that the blocking policy is set by each individual part of wikipedia (what a nice mess) but can you possibly forward this message to the right people so that they exempt the 2001:1af8:fe00::/39?

We have attempted to provide details at:

to get IPv6 in a better 'blocking' state, that is so that the admins know what to block and who to contact.

Unfortunately it seems that even though for instance:

is banned because of:

That is a complete /32 being blocked.

Note that the /39 that SixXS uses out of that /32 is in RIPE whois:

inet6num:       2001:1af8:fe00::/39
netname:        SIXXS-NLHAA01
descr:          LEASEWEB BV -- IPv6 deployment
descr:          SixXS allocation for LEASEWEB BV POP

Hence, querying it should lead you to for any abuse there, next to the fact that we noted it on the above page.

Indeed the remainder of that /32 is not registered in whois; that does not mean there are no more specifics like that /39.

Can you please exempt the 2001:1af8:fe00::/39 used by users of nlhaa01 ( as these are actual users, not hosted customers like the rest of that /32?

Jeroen (talk) 09:41, 29 October 2014 (UTC) ( for email, likely easier than this wiki for communications...)

@JeroenMassar: We have a {{webhostblock}}: Special:BlockList/2001:1af8:fe00::/39. Unfortunately it is not possible at this time to exempt subranges from a rangeblock. Individual users can request exemptions on a per-account basis by requesting IP block exemption. I would advise contacting the blocking administrator (Elockid (talk · contribs)) about the block if you feel that it is excessive.--Jasper Deng (talk) 15:35, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
That is a block for the whole /32 of Leaseweb, which is indeed primarily a hosting company. The 2001:1af8:fe00::/39 out of that is for SixXS though which are endusers. I'll see if Elockid is willing to resolve this problem properly... Jeroen (talk) 15:40, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Copyright checks when performing AfC reviews[edit]

Hello Jasper Deng. This message is part of a mass mailing to people who appear active in reviewing articles for creation submissions. First of all, thank you for taking part in this important work! I'm sorry this message is a form letter – it really was the only way I could think of to covey the issue economically. Of course, this also means that I have not looked to see whether the matter is applicable to you in particular.

The issue is in rather large numbers of copyright violations ("copyvios") making their way through AfC reviews without being detected (even when easy to check, and even when hallmarks of copyvios in the text that should have invited a check, were glaring). A second issue is the correct method of dealing with them when discovered.

If you don't do so already, I'd like to ask for your to help with this problem by taking on the practice of performing a copyvio check as the first step in any AfC review. The most basic method is to simply copy a unique but small portion of text from the draft body and run it through a search engine in quotation marks. Trying this from two different paragraphs is recommended. (If you have any question about whether the text was copied from the draft, rather than the other way around (a "backwards copyvio"), the Wayback Machine is very useful for sussing that out.)

If you do find a copyright violation, please do not decline the draft on that basis. Copyright violations need to be dealt with immediately as they may harm those whose content is being used and expose Wikipedia to potential legal liability. If the draft is substantially a copyvio, and there's no non-infringing version to revert to, please mark the page for speedy deletion right away using {{db-g12|url=URL of source}}. If there is an assertion of permission, please replace the draft article's content with {{subst:copyvio|url=URL of source}}.

Some of the more obvious indicia of a copyvio are use of the first person ("we/our/us..."), phrases like "this site", or apparent artifacts of content written for somewhere else ("top", "go to top", "next page", "click here", use of smartquotes, etc.); inappropriate tone of voice, such as an overly informal tone or a very slanted marketing voice with weasel words; including intellectual property symbols (™,®); and blocks of text being added all at once in a finished form with no misspellings or other errors.

I hope this message finds you well and thanks again you for your efforts in this area. Best regards--Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 02:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC).
