Blocks' FAQ
Shortcut:
  • 1. Q. What is a block?
  • A. A block is the method by which administrators technically prevent users from editing Wikipedia.
  • 4. Q If I made an account on Wikipedia on one IP address but opened it on another, would that create problems? E.g. If I attempted to open my account on an IP address that had been completely blocked (no editing, no creating new accounts e.t.c.) but I haven't received a block for anything that I have done under my username, will I be blocked on that IP address? If so, is there a way to appeal it?
