Usage

Place this template on the user talk page (not the user page) of the editor.

This template should be used to notify blocked sock puppets and sockmasters blocked for sock puppetry.

{{subst:SockBlock
| master      = 
| suspected   = 
| blocked     = 
| notalk      = 
| color       = 
| masterblock = 
| period      = 
| evidence    = 
| sig         = 
}}
Parameters
  • master – if the name of the blocked sock puppet's sockmaster account is known, use |master=accountname to specify that.
  • suspected=yes – if the account was blocked as a suspected sock puppet, use |suspected=yes. Note that if the masterblock parameter (see below) is set to yes, this parameter can't be used.
  • blocked=yes – if the blocked sock puppet's sockmaster account currently was blocked or banned at the time the sock puppet account was blocked, use |blocked=yes. Please note that if the masterblock parameter (see below) is set to yes, this parameter should not be used.
  • notalk=yes – if the blocked sock puppet's talk page access was also removed, use |notalk=yes.
  • color – if you don't want the default background colors, you can use |color=hexadecimal color code / color name.
  • masterblock=yes – if the message is about the sockmaster being blocked for sock puppetry, use |masterblock=yes.
  • period – if the masterblock parameter is set to "yes", |period=period can be used to specify the block length of the sockmaster account. By default it says "blocked temporarily".
  • evidence – if the masterblock parameter is set to "yes", |evidence=evidence can be added. Add a link (with brackets) to the evidence proving the sockmaster has operated multiple accounts.
  • sig=yes – if you want to sign the template, use |sig=yes.
