ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

This blocked user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who declined the request. Other administrators may also review this block, but should not override the decision without good reason (see the blocking policy). Do not remove this unblock review while you are blocked.

Request reason:

I have WMF global TOR exception, and use the TOR browser for privacy reasons. ᴬᵐᵍᵎⁿᵉ/t · e 18:44, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

Decline reason:

WMF global IPBE only exempts you from global blocks - as you have no doubt noticed. Here is the relevant information on applying for IPBE on this wiki (from WP:IPEC):

Editing via an anonymous proxy can be easily abused, so it is only granted under exceptional circumstances. Examples of editors who may reasonably request an exemption include users who show they can contribute to the encyclopedia, and (for existing users) with a history of valid non-disruptive contribution, but are either being hindered by restrictive firewalls, or for exceptional reasons must edit via anonymous proxies.

However, many users are known to access through open proxy unknowingly due to the default setting of their browser. Before you apply for IP block exemption (which may take time and is not guaranteed to be granted), you should check the internet connection preference of your browser and change it to no proxy access.

Note that avoidance of checkuser, or specific checkusers, is not usually considered a sufficient reason – concerns over checkusers should be discussed with the Arbitration Committee or ombudsman.

Who may request
An editor who has genuine and exceptional need, and can be trusted not to abuse the right.
How to request
Email the functionaries team or contact a CheckUser directly, explaining why you need to edit via anonymous proxies. Administrators who are contacted through other means may need to consult a checkuser to confirm the problem.
I hope this helps. SQLQuery me! 22:16, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

If you want to make any further unblock requests, please read the guide to appealing blocks first, then use the {{unblock}} template again. If you make too many unconvincing or disruptive unblock requests, you may be prevented from editing this page until your block has expired.

No, of course it does not. While I understand why en.WP chooses to not allow edits by anonymous proxy, my demonstrated need for privacy far outweighs my motivation for contributing to en.WP. It happens I am auditing a large number of place articles, and could highlight those requiring attention. Oh well. - ᴬᵐᵍᵎⁿᵉ/t · e 22:59, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

I have laid out exactly how to request IPBE on this wiki above. All you have to do is follow the instructions. SQLQuery me! 23:51, 5 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, you have, and for that I thank you. But from my perspective it is an unnecessary and demotivating hurdle . I will simply continue to add the odd contributions to projects I find more welcoming. - ᴬᵐᵍᵎⁿᵉ/t · e 00:31, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
That's up to you, I suppose. The process documented at WP:IPEC is how this project decided to implement IPBE. I wasn't there for the discussion, I just help with unblock requests. SQLQuery me! 02:56, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
