Specifically this will allow project checkusers to block Grawp ranges while allowing the legitimate users on Commons access and given the recent activity of this vandal it would be good if this could be done quite quickly.
Commons users generally do not have a great interest in vandalism so we would not expect a lot of people to comment. All project checkusers are aware of this suggestion. Longer term it will allow the project to deal with range based vandalism more effectively. Allowing bureaucrats to deal with this too would mean that there would be others available to deal with issues if required. Thanks
I confess I took this a fairly straightforward. The issue has been solved for en wp with admins able to allow BlockExempt. Any chance this could get done for Commons so that we can control some of the hard core vandals better? Cheers
it has also been implemented successfully on Meta too, no need to delay this request :)
Yes - given the Commons request was in sometime before the Meta one some action on this would be appreciated/appropriate.
Can I ask nicely why - given the same thing has been done for Meta - this has not been done for Commons yet?
I'm sure jeluf just overlooked it... *makes some noise so that JeLuF sees it the next time he does shell/root requests*
Bump. (I know, bumps are bad form but this should be an easy tweak, right?... Commons could REALLY use this. Thanks!)
I have had an email from an en wp user who has block exempt there who wishes to edit on Commons (they are on Grawp's range).
Can we get something done about this please.
I asked brion to personally look into this today and he said he might do it soon.. *fingers crossed*
User:Suntag is unable to create an account on Commons because he edits from Grawp's range. They have blockexempt on en wp
User:Slakr requires blockexempt on Commons. The range they edit from requires blocking per cross project CU issues. I have block exempted them on Meta.
I would like to add that often there are open proxies and TOR nodes that are blocked on Commons that are in use by contributors in blocked areas like China (sometimes) and Iran (sometimes) and elsewhere.
