Re: [Wikimedia-l] Blocks of new accounts in Angola?

2017-03-05 Thread John
I cannot locate the original block in question but
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/block=User%3A105.172.16.0%2F20
is now affecting the IP in question and it does look related to the
copyright violation issue previously brought up in this thread.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Blocks of new accounts in Angola?

2017-03-05 Thread Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton
In reality:

"Account creation from IP addresses in the range 105.172.0.0/16, which
includes your IP address (105.172.25.219), has been blocked by
Steinsplitter. "

That was the message most of them do not have a way to enter in the website
that you requested, by the lack of mobile data...

Did not we have some mass vandalism from Angola some time ago, and then
measures had to be taken? I do not remember the details.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Blocks of new accounts in Angola?

2017-02-22 Thread Gergo Tisza
Maybe caused by https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T154698 and their ISP
using a proxy that handles IP-related headers in a very broken way?
If that's the case, they should be seeing something about private IP ranges
in the block message.

Let's wait and see what the IP info says. Might be  case of an ISP routing
everyone thru a  single public IP.  Or it might be a range block due to ip
hoping disruption.

Yep, none of them implied massive and preventive blocks. There's something
broken needing further investigations then.

Did not we have some mass vandalism from Angola some time ago, and then
measures had to be taken? I do not remember the details.

[Wikimedia-l] Blocks of new accounts in Angola?

2017-02-21 Thread Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton
I've been receiving complains via Facebook from people of Angola about not
being able to create new accounts, some know something about it? They
receive the as if the IP was blocked, however we receive more then 5
complains just in the Commons FB page.

Any ideas?
