Your account has been blocked from editing Wikipedia because your username appears to be too similar to the username of another Wikipedia user. You are welcome to create a new account with a username that is easily distinguishable, or ask for a request in changing username by:

1. Typing {{unblock-un|user=your new username here|reason=your reason here}}.

2. You will have 24 hours to fill in an unblock request in WP:CHU before you get re-blocked.

If you feel that you were blocked in error, you may appeal this block by adding the text {{unblock|Your reason here}} below, but you should read our guide to appealing blocks first. Thank you.
Documentation icon 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.


Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:Uw-ublock-double}} rather than {{Uw-ublock-double}}. (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-ublock-double|anon=yes|time=Duration|reason=For a different reason|notalk=yes|page=Targeted page|sig=yes}}
  • 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".
