Re: blocking[edit]

If a registered user gets blocked (in many cases due to a patently offensive username), and then attempts to edit after being blocked, whatever IP address that user is attempting to edit from gets automatically blocked for 24 hours. This appears on the Special:Ipblocklist as:

  • [SomeTimestamp] [SomeAdmin] blocked #[SomeBlockNumber] (expires [SomeTimestamp + 24 hours]) (Unblock) (Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "[SomeBadUser]". The reason given for [SomeBadUser]'s block is: "[SomeGoodReason]")

This is intended to reduce the effect of vandals who vandalize with multiple accounts, whilst still protecting the privacy of their actual IP address. In the future, you can place something on your talk page like this:

{{unblock|my IP address was recently used by [SomeBadUser]}}

That will be get attention more quickly and effectively than e-mail. — Jun. 27, '06 [11:12] <freak|talk>

I've taken a look at the section you mentioned and cleaned it up a bit. I couldn't tell whether the first two paragraphs were quoting Scheflin and Shapiro or not (they were written as statements of fact rather than "Scheflin and Shapiro described..."), so that could still use clarifying. --McGeddon (talk) 08:40, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
