MediaWiki talk:Autoblock whitelist

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This page adds the listed IP addresses to a whitelist, meaning that those IP addresses will not be autoblocked. In other words, a blocked user who attempts to edit from one of the IP addresses will not trigger the autoblock for that IP address. Flcelloguy (A note?) 23:33, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

Just FYI: For help, it may be worth seeing m:CIDR. When adding a single IP address, I've been advised that specifying a range of /32 (one address) is a good idea. Luna Santin 09:04, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

After some testing, it doesn't seem that the "single IP" (/32) listings are working properly. I've notified devs, hopefully they'll be able to figure it out. Luna Santin 19:19, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Has this been resolved yet? It would be nice to know the Qatar IP address isn't going to be affected by any more autoblocks – Gurch 22:43, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

{{editprotected}}

Please add User talk:218.186.9.1. Someone got autoblocked on here, and I've seen at least 3 users with collateral in the past few hours. Part Deux 15:04, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Done; 218.186.9.0/24 was already on there, but I'm not sure ranges are working properly yet. Proto  20:26, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

Addition request[edit]

Can we add 194.176.105.40 to this list? It is one of a very small handful of IPs which act as the public proxy for N3 which is the private network of the UK's national health service. As such it represents tens of thousands of individual machines & users. It was recently autoblocked and there was a lot of collateral damage as a result. Thanks AulaTPN 22:06, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
