Blocking is the method by which administrators may technically prevent users from editing our Wiki. Blocks are used to prevent damage or disruption, not to punish users. Blocks sometimes are used as a deterrent, to discourage whatever behavior led to the block and encourage a productive editing environment.

Any user may request a block at Forum:Administrative Requests for major incidents of vandalism or disruption. Users requesting blocks should supply credible evidence of the circumstances warranting a block. Administrators are never obliged to place a block and are free to investigate the situation themselves. Because blocks may be reviewed and appealed, it is often important that the blocking and reviewing administrators each communicate with and take care to inform the other.

Blocked users can appeal their blocks by making a statement on their talk page. Except in cases of unambiguous error, administrators should not undo other administrators' blocks without prior discussion; see below.

Reasons for BlockingEdit

Acceptable ReasonsEdit

Accounts and address may be blocked for:

  • Persistently making personal attacks
  • Persistent vandalism
  • Persistent gross incivility
  • Persistent harassment
  • Persistent spamming
  • Edit warring or revert warring
  • Breaching the sock puppetry policy
  • Persistently violating other policies or guidelines
  • Accounts with inappropriate usernames

Unacceptable ReasonsEdit

Accounts and address may not be blocked for:

  • Disagreeing with an administrator; this is conflict of interest
  • "Cooling off" purposes; this usually only inflames the user even more
