There have been two problems with this account: the account has been used for advertising or promotion, which is contrary to the purpose of Wikipedia, and your username indicates that the account represents a business or other organisation or group, which is also against policy, as an account must be for just one person. Because of those problems, the account has been blocked indefinitely from editing.

If you intend to make useful contributions about some topic other than your business or organisation, you may request an unblock. To do so, post the text {{unblock-spamun|Your proposed new username|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page. Replace the text "Your proposed new username" with a new username you are willing to use. See Special:CentralAuth to search for available usernames. Your new username will need to meet our username policy. Replace the text "Your reason here" with your reason to be unblocked. In that reason, you must:

  • Convince us that you understand the reason for your block and that you will not repeat the kind of edits for which you were blocked.
  • Describe in general terms the contributions that you intend to make if you are unblocked.
If you believe this block was made in error, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} at the bottom of your talk page, but you should read the guide to appealing blocks first.

Because of those problems, the account has been blocked indefinitely from editing. Your ability to edit your talk page has also been revoked.

If you intend to make useful contributions about some topic other than your business or organisation, or if you believe this block was made in error, you may request an unblock. To do so, you should read the guide to appealing blocks, then contact administrators by submitting a request to the Unblock Ticket Request System.
Template documentation

This template is used to notify a user that they have been blocked. It informs them of the reason for their block and describes the steps they can take if they wish to continue editing. It has been carefully designed based on guidelines by the user warnings project.

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 administrators can block users; adding a block template does not constitute a block. See RFAA to request that a user be blocked.

Usage

Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:Uw-spamublock}} rather than {{Uw-spamublock}}. (Although this template must be substituted in the user talk page, it has also been designed to display properly when substitution is not possible.)

To give greater detail to your message, you may specify: the block duration, a specific reason for the block, and auto-include your signature.

{{subst:Uw-spamublock|anon=yes|time=Duration|reason=For a different reason|notalk=yes|page=Targeted page|sig=yes}}

Notes

  • If you do not set a block expiry, replace time=Duration with indef=yes.
  • An already indefinite block template does not require the time or indef parameters.
  • If not blocking an anonymous user, omit the anon parameter.
  • Include the page parameter to refer to a page on which the conduct supporting the block occurred.
  • The notalk parameter should always be omitted unless the user cannot edit their own talk page.
  • The optional for parameter can be used if the word "for" before the block reason doesn't grammatically work. For example, if for=per is written, the block notice will say "blocked from editing per". Don't use this parameter if you don't want to change the word "for".
