This is terrible I got lots of messages for stuff I didn't do
The messages I received.
- I can block the IP Adress if there is further vandalism - that would prevent more messages. You are not fooling anyone - These edits were made by you. The IP you are editing from has never done so before, and the time gap between the edits and this message are not enough for it to have been assigned to another ISP customer.

i dont want to get ip banned for nothing so i made a reply to your message: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:220.127.116.11 — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:34, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
("well thats not helping why i get the messages from you. And even if it was me i would do PROPER edits not edits that a noob would do 22.214.171.124 (talk) 15:31, 19 June 2014 (UTC)")
- If you connect to the Internet your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provider you with a IP Address that identifies your connection. These IP addresses can be allocated both dynamically and statically, and may or may not represent a large group of people. In your case your provider Orange Home / Wanadoo UK provides you with the IP Address 126.96.36.199. If an IP adress is dynamically allocated it changes routinely (Ranging from every few days to every time you reset your router). If your IP Address is static you will receive the same number every time you connect to the Internet. Seeing you still have the same address it is either static or long-lease (Meaning that the ISP will not guarantee it is the same every time, but in practice attempts to ensure this). I can also infer that the connection represent a small group of people as the IP address is in an IPV4 netblock that seems to be registered specifically for home users. Conclusion: The IP address represents a small group of people, and by being static it always represents the same group of people.
- Now, with that in mind lets look at the contributions made from this IP address. The IP never edited before 7 June 2014 and on this day all edits in a 20 minute timeframe resolve around the Electric Eel page. Now, in a timeframe spanning mere minutes someone blanked the Electric Eel page, vandalized my user page, removed the warnings and claimed "This is terrible I got lots of messages for stuff I didn't do". The chance that two people in a single household would choose to edit Wikipedia within a 10 minute timeframe is quite eligible. Now, about two weeks later the same IP address leaves a message on my talk page and states "And even if it was me i would do PROPER edits not edits that a noob would do". Yet that same IP address edits the Electric Eel once again. Now tell me: There is a small group of people represented by the same IP number, and we know this group contains the same persons each time. What is the chance that, over a two week or so time span both of these two persons would decide to edit the same page page minutes from each other? I would say that this was done by two individual persons nigh 0%.
- Now, if you would happen to meet a housemate or someone you are related to who would have made these edits could you please relay a message to them? The message would be that honest mistakes are fine and happen all the time. Even if some of the edits were disruptive that is something that can always be overlooked if there is no more vandalism afterwards. If you would by any chance have a younger brother please ask them to read this insightful page and make sure they understand (Make sure you read it yourself as well, its always good to know what information you pass on). After that you yourself should be free of any further unjustified messages regarding vandalism you did not commit yourself. Excirial (Contact me,Contribs) 17:58, 19 June 2014 (UTC)
This is the discussion page for an IP user, identified by the user's IP address. Many IP addresses change periodically, and are often shared by several users. If you are an IP user, you may create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other IP users. Registering also hides your IP address.
