This page documents a global Miraheze policy. This policy follows consensus and/or guidelines set by global functionaries. All Miraheze users should follow it, and changes made to it should be discussed on the talk page. In the event of any differences in meaning between the original English version and a translation, the original English version takes precedence.
No open proxies policy
This page provides information on open proxies and lays out guidance for the Counter Vandalism Team on blocking them.
Per this request for comment in January 2017, open proxies may not be used for anonymous editing of Miraheze wikis. Open proxies should be globally blocked upon discovery, with logged in editors being allowed to continue editing freely. Users affected by these global blocks should contact Miraheze Stewards to request an account be created for them.
The length for a block is at the discretion of the blocking Global Sysop or Steward. As a general rule, proxy IPs are unlikely to change destination frequently and as such, in order to avoid having to re-block constantly, a minimum length of 2 years is advised.
