What does this mean?

What is a block?

A block is a measure used to protect Wikipedia from possible improper use or modification in breach of editorial policies. Blocks can apply to a user account, an IP address, or a range of IP addresses that is deemed responsible for or related to problematic activity. You may be an innocent victim of collateral damage, whereby a block of some other activity has accidentally caused your account to be inaccessible. The reason for your block may be found above.

Most common causes

  • Your IP address matches that used by another blocked account. Ask for further information and/or request unblocking.
  • Your account or a connected IP has been used in a problematic way, or your username was unsuitable and you need to choose another. The reason should be in the box above.

What do I do now?

  • If instructions are given above in the block message, follow them.
  • If you have never edited Wikiquote before and/or do not have an account, consider creating one.
  • If you wish to appeal the block, or you believe you have been blocked by mistake, please see the following section.

Appealing

The current block will automatically expire $6. You have many routes to appeal the block or its duration. Firstly, if you are a registered user and have a valid e-mail address confirmed, you can contact $1 via e-mail. This feature can be removed if abused.

Alternatively, you may appeal the block by requesting that another administrator review the block. To do so, add

{{unblock|your reason here}}

to the bottom of your user talk page to request unblocking. You must state a reason for this, and the block can then be discussed. Our guide to appealing blocks might help you in composing a persuasive unblock request.

If $7 is not blocked, your IP address ($3) or range may have been blocked. Please check here. If this is the case, please copy and paste the following text to the bottom of your user talk page.

{{unblock-ip|1=$3|2=<nowiki>$2</nowiki>|3=$1}}

Please note: While this block may be upsetting or unexpected, abuse of appeal processes, repeatedly using the unblock template when denied, personal attacks, or impolite conduct may lead to the removal of your ability to edit your talk page.
