Unblocking administrator: Please check for active autoblocks on this user after accepting the unblock request.

I do not see a block on your account; it may be that you are caught in a rangeblock. I assume that you are not editing via a proxy? Please post, below here, the exact message you see when you try to edit. --Anthony Bradbury"talk" 11:45, 25 April 2013 (UTC)


You are currently unable to edit Wikipedia. You are still able to view pages, but you are not currently able to edit, move, or create them. Editing from 74.125.182.0/23 has been blocked (disabled) by Reaper Eternal for the following reason(s):

The IP address that you are currently using has been blocked because the IP range you are editing from is a web host provider. Since your IP acts like a proxy, because it hides your IP address, it has been blocked. To prevent abuse, these IPs may be blocked from editing Wikipedia. If you do not have any other way to edit Wikipedia, you will need to request an IP Block Exemption. If this is the case, please request to be unblocked using the unblock template, and provide a clear reason why you need to use a webhost. If you would prefer to do so in confidentiality, please contact functionaries at functionaries-enlists.wikimedia.org. Furthermore, your IP also may be blocked because proxies exist on it. Admins: Before applying IPBE, a checkuser needs to take a look at the account. This can be requested most easily at SPI Quick Checkuser Requests. Unblocking an IP or IP range with this template is highly unrecommended without at least contacting the blocking administrator.

This block has been set to expire: 14:20, 9 March 2014.


This happened today between editions, I use still the same IP from very long time, never heard about any proxy. Maybe the webpage was reloaded too frequently or someone is manipulating my internet connections ? Darekk2 (talk) 12:06, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

I gave you IP block exemption, but due to a software malfunction, now sorted, I was unable to notify you.--Anthony Bradbury"talk" 16:07, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
Thank you. That is very strange, because I have the same IP number at least from about 1 year. Today also for long time everything was going on OK, and later this block. Darekk2 (talk) 16:13, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Help me with my articles![edit]

Excuse me, my articles about Prolagus oeningensis, Prolagus imperialis and Prolagus osmolskae are very stubby and rather "underdeveloped". I have found info on them, but it is rather hard to understand and so cannot explain it in the articles. Can you please, please, please find some info and extend those articles? I know you must know loads about lagomorphs, so give it a go. Also try to make the articles Prolagus apricenicus and Prolagus crusafonti. --Scottishwildcat12 (talk) 21:24, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

  • There are more articles about species of Prolagus genus now ... I don't know to much about them. Fossils of Prolagus oeningensis are probably most frequent, maybe in other cases maps are not needed. Perhaps I will look at that some time. Thank you for this information.

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.

Not vandalism[edit]

No, my edit at Bird feet and legs was not vandalism; it just had a typo ("the" spelled "tthe"). The point of the edit was that Wikipedia frowns on pointless wording like "It is worth noting that ...". I'll put my edit back in without the typo. Loraof (talk) 16:55, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

You replaced ". It is worth noting that the" by "; tthe" Darekk2 (talk) 17:01, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
That's right. In addition to getting rid of the unneeded phrase, I connected the two sentences with a semicolon because they are closely related. Loraof (talk) 19:48, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, but semicolon is used rarely, that is not good style. Darekk2 (talk) 20:14, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
I don't know where you got that idea from, though I did read an article one time saying it's less frequent than it used to be. Certainly it's used in formal writing, such as in an encyclopedia. It is good style; it links together two thoughts that are more closely related than would be implied by two separate sentences but not closely related enough to be joined by a comma and a coordinating conjunction.
Incidentally, your sentence "Yes, but semicolon is used rarely, that is not good style." needs a semicolon instead of the second comma; it's stylistically incorrect (not just bad style, but proscribed style) to use a comma between independent clauses without a coordinating conjunction. Also, your use of "semicolon" requires an article before it, either "a" or "the".
Cheers, Loraof (talk) 23:23, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
