This page contains a draft of a informational or documentation page relating to a global user group.
It is awaiting review by a steward (principally, Void) to ensure it reflects current global policies and historical precedents. Once reviewed, a steward or Void will remove this {{draft}} template notice. In case changes need to be made, let's avoid marking this page for translation until it's been reviewed by a steward.

Global IP block exemption is a global user group that can be assigned by a steward upon request to any registered user to allow them to edit through Tor or other virtual private networks for reasons relating to privacy or for other legitimate reasons, such as to bypass state-imposed Internet traffic restrictions in the user's home country. It may also be granted by a steward or Global Sysop to anonymous users who have been incorrectly affected adversely by a global IP block.

Requesting a global IP block exemption[edit | edit source]

A global IP block exemption may be requested, ideally, if you are currently able to edit on Miraheze, at: Requests for global rights. Alternatively, it may also be requested by sending an e-mail message to stewards at, by stating your username and/or IP address(es) affected and the reason for your request. If state-imposed Internet traffic restrictions or other Miraheze global blocks are restricting your ability to edit on Miraheze, you should use the alternate method for requesting.

Note: If requesting a global IP block exemption on-wiki at requests for global rights, although your request will be posted to the same page for requesting Global Sysop, interwiki administrator, and other global user groups, a global IP block exemption does not require a community vote and may be granted by any steward on a discretionary basis.
