Do not edit-war on the IP's talkpage, or you may be blocked. Third party individuals are not permitted to submit unblock requests on behalf of others - period. A blocked person who has also lost access to their talkpage always has the ability to use WP:UTRS, and they see that when blocked. Nevertheless, you're welcome to discuss the block with the blocking admin - as you now know, it's a requirement prior to going to ANI. Please don't take things into your own hands, as that never ends well 12:50, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
- I would like to point out the obvious:
- If the IP in question was banned not in accord with Wikipedia guidelines, as generally seems apparent per the ANI comments, and is unable to comment on its own talk page, the talk page of the editor who wrongly banned it, or any other talk page, how is a user of a banned IP address supposed to appeal a block?
- Also, what's with the cautionary message after a single page reversion? Per what I've read today, three unjustified reversions in a 24 hour period would result in some form of action. While I have been a scarce editor of wikipedia for some years, my first interactions with users as of the past ~day have come across as extremely unpleasant. To say nothing of the unwarranted one-month IP block. Meteoritekid (talk) 13:00, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
- The block is weird, but it doesn't hurt to just wait for Bearian's explanation. Whatever the case, you can't just remove block messages or ask for an unblock on their behalf because you disagree with the block. It provides information for the blocked user on what to do to get unblocked and removing the message doesn't affect the block in any way, so it's counterproductive.--Atlan (talk) 13:21, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
