Re: blocking[edit]

If a registered user gets blocked (in many cases due to a patently offensive username), and then attempts to edit after being blocked, whatever IP address that user is attempting to edit from gets automatically blocked for 24 hours. This appears on the Special:Ipblocklist as:

  • [SomeTimestamp] [SomeAdmin] blocked #[SomeBlockNumber] (expires [SomeTimestamp + 24 hours]) (Unblock) (Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "[SomeBadUser]". The reason given for [SomeBadUser]'s block is: "[SomeGoodReason]")

This is intended to reduce the effect of vandals who vandalize with multiple accounts, whilst still protecting the privacy of their actual IP address. In the future, you can place something on your talk page like this:

{{unblock|my IP address was recently used by [SomeBadUser]}}

That will be get attention more quickly and effectively than e-mail. — Jun. 27, '06 [11:12] <freak|talk>

Pardon for Morant, Handcock and Witton[edit]

Hi Lindsay, I've just re-removed the fourth paragraph from this article, and started a discussion of my reasons for doing so at Talk:Pardon for Morant, Handcock and Witton. I'd be happy to discuss this further with you (and other editors, of course). Regards, Nick-D (talk) 08:30, 2 May 2012 (UTC)
