Permanently protected template

To enforce an arbitration decision you have been blocked temporarily from editing. You are welcome to edit once the block expires; however, please note that the repetition of similar behavior may result in a longer block or other sanctions.

If you believe this block is unjustified, please read the guide to appealing blocks (specifically this section) before appealing. Place the following on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Please copy my appeal to the [[WP:AE|arbitration enforcement noticeboard]] or [[WP:AN|administrators' noticeboard]]. Your reason here OR place the reason below this template. ~~~~}}. If you intend to appeal on the arbitration enforcement noticeboard I suggest you use the arbitration enforcement appeals template on your talk page so it can be copied over easily. You may also appeal directly to me (by email), before or instead of appealing on your talk page. 

Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted the following procedure instructing administrators regarding Arbitration Enforcement blocks: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


The following parameters are required:

{{subst:Uw-aeblock|reason=brief reason specifying the misconduct}}

The following parameter is optional but is highly advised:

{{subst:Uw-aeblock|reason=brief reason specifying the misconduct|decision=full pagename of the arbitration decision (will be auto linked) or if enforcing discretionary sanctions see #codes below}}

Other optional parameters:

|time=Duration - can be used to specify the duration of the block.
|indef=yes - if the block is indefinite - ensure that the arbitration decision allows indefinite blocks.
|notalk=yes - if access to the talk page has also been revoked.
|page=pagename - page on which the conduct supporting the block occurred.
|noappealtome=yes - removes the sentence telling the user that they can appeal to the enforcing admin by email.
|sig=yes - appends your signature inside the block template.
|for= - if the word "for" before the reason doesn't grammatically work. For example, if for=per is written, the block notice will say "to enforce an arbitration decision per". Don't use this parameter if you don't want to change the word "for".

Important notes

  • If blocking under discretionary sanctions, a reason for the sanction must be supplied.
  • Remember to log the sanction on the applicable case page.
  • This template has been carefully designed based on guidelines by the user warnings project and the Arbitration Committee.
  • Please refer to the index of message templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending. Note: Only uninvolved administrators can issue arbitration enforcement blocks; adding a block template does not constitute a block. See arbitration enforcement requests to request that a user be blocked as enforcement of an arbitration decision.
  • Before blocking a user as an arbitration enforcement action, ensure that you have read the relevant remedies and enforcement provisions of the arbitration case which may include the discretionary sanctions procedure.
  • Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:Uw-aeblock}} rather than {{Uw-aeblock}}.
  • Although this template must be substituted in the user talk page, it has also been designed to display properly when substitution is not possible.
