Disambiguation link notification for October 7[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Mawson Trail, you added links pointing to the disambiguation pages Wilmington, Melrose and Craddock. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Orphaned non-free image File:Leaflet example.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Leaflet example.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described in the criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:15, 12 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for April 3[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Great Dividing Trail, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Daylesford (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Request reason:

Caught by a web host block (209.95.32.0/19). I'm using a VPN through IPVanish - mostly in response to recent metadata retention laws. I'm logged in using my account, and am in good standing. I'm not sure why I shouldn't be able to edit Wikipedia this way? Stevage 02:14, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Decline reason:

As explained by Jeremy, open proxy blocks are not usually 'anon. only', so logged in users cannot edit through them. PhilKnight (talk) 00:19, 3 November 2015 (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.

Wikipedia does not allow editing through open proxies or anonymising services. This is partially because such services are depressingly abused routinely (especially by banned users) and partially because Wikipedia identifies anonymous users by their IP addresses. While there is a workaround it isn't granted unless there's a reason editing through a closed proxy/with the anonymising service off is impossible. —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 07:33, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
It seems so strange that editing is prevented on the basis of IP first, rather than account. Surely the fact that I'm logged in with my not-banned account is enough to verify that I'm not an unwanted user. Hmph. Stevage 11:31, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
IP blocks can actually be set to allow registered users to edit through them. Open proxy blocks, however, generally aren't flagged with "anon. only". —Jeremy v^_^v Bori! 19:01, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
