{{Old IP warnings top}}[edit]

I think Wikipedia is far too charitable to anonymous IP editors. My rule would be:

Action Taken
1 warning
2 1 week anon-block
3 2 month anon-block
4+ 1 year anon-block

...with some sort of appeals process (there is one already, right?)

And I would use a similarly broad brush to block IP ranges with migratory vandals. If 3 or more IP addresses within the same /24 (Class C) commit multiple vandalisms in the same week, anon-block all 256 IPs as above. Continue the process for 3 or more /24s in the same /16 if needed.


Emailing the school district webmaster can be interesting, so I like to mark school IPs.
