IP blocks[edit source]

Hello, Pcj here from the GRASP team. I noticed in the past you have used infinite global block to combat vandalism from IP addresses/users who aren't logged in. Per "Blocking users" on the help wiki, the standard for IP address blocks is two weeks, as IP addresses are dynamically assigned (and the smarter vandals/spambots use proxies/VPNs to show a false IP anyway). It would be preferable to only use two weeks, or short of that, at least make the block only local to this wiki. I'll be unblocking users whose blocks are past the two week limit. If there are any problems with that we can address them as they arise. Thank you. --Pcj 12:45, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Pcj, thanks for the info. When I started here I was told by an existing wiki guardian to use the indefinite block, but I see now per the Gamepedia guidelines a 2-week block is standard. I will adjust my procedure going forward. Jomaxro (talk) 16:54, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
