::This RfC doesn't have a lot of details in terms of implementation. There is consensus here for the creation of a local IPBE group (Proposal 1), to be granted generally by Meta administrators. Since Stewards already grant GIPBEs, which provides for exemptions from local as well as global blocks, there also seems to be consensus to allow Stewards to grant local IPBEs in limited, contextually-relevant circumstances (Proposal 2). There may be cases where a user, or a Steward, wishes to switch a user from a GIPBE to an IPBE, or additionally where a Meta administrator may refer a request to Stewards for additional consideration. As a last point, Proposal 1 never actually lists the rights that are to be created but given the name of the group it can be presumed that these are the same as the current GIBPE group.

:::(UPDATE) After having considered the [[Community_noticeboard#Request_for_overturn_on_Requests_for_Comment/Local_IP_Block_Exemption|comments made here]] and discussion with John I have decided that due to the unclear nature of the consensus in Proposal 2, it is best to revert back to the status quo and therefore '''consider Proposal 2 as having failed to attract consensus'''. If the Community wishes the proposal to be

successful or something similar they should feel free to open another RfC but express their views more clearly (rather than as 'neutral' votes).

Currently, I have been granted a Global Exemption, but after a [[User:Dmehus|steward]] told me that most wikis have the <code>torunblocked</code> user right automatically assigned [[Special:ManageWikiDefaultPermissions|automatically]] to the <code>user</code> group. Me and the [[User:Dmehus|steward mentioned]] agreed that about the local IP block exemption (with the technical group name <code>ipblock-exempt</code>) should be created for meta. This is my 2nd RfC (1st valid RfC), so if I make any issues, please let me know :)
