Response: I have re-written the article to address the Detector report. Is it safe to remove the MadmanBot template? JonathanCross (talk) 10:36, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

I believe all required changes have been made, so the notice has been removed. JonathanCross (talk) 14:14, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Unblock request[edit]

Editing from (talk) has been blocked (disabled) by User:Reaper Eternal for the following reason(s)... Seems to be a {{webhostblock}} - From what I can see, I (Jonathan Cross) am not specifically blocked, yet I am prevented form editing because of my IP address. The Webhostblock template indicates I should use the unblock template below:

File:Orologio rosso or File:Orologio verde DOT SVG (red clock or green clock icon, from Wikimedia Commons)
This user's unblock request has been reviewed by an administrator, who accepted the request.

Request reason:

Seems like I am being blocked because the IP address was flagged as "Google Appspot". However, I was assigned this address as an internal Google employee. Is there a way to make exceptions for users who are clearly making positive contributions to Wikipedia? Or am I missing something? JonathanCross (talk) 12:00, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Accept reason:

IP block exemption granted. The problem is that there are literally hundreds of anonymizing proxies on Google AppSpot, and the exit points are all over on yours and one other /16 range. Unfortunately, the same /16 also includes a few non-AppSpot /24 ranges like yours which have also been hit. Since vandals and trolls regularly abuse open proxies to cause unstoppable disruption to the project, I was forced to block. Anyway, you should be able to edit now without further disruption.

Great, thank you for the quick response! JonathanCross (talk) 13:23, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
