School IP address Attention:

This IP address, (IP address appears here), is registered to a school, and may be shared by many different users. If proxy servers are used, this host may represent many users at many different actual computers, or even at different schools within the network.


Because of this, a message meant for one person may be received by another, and a block will be shared by many people. If you are editing from this address and are getting messages because of other people, you can avoid these messages by creating an account for yourself. In some cases, you may not be able to create an account for a while because account creation has been blocked to stop vandalism.


Caution should be used when blocking this IP. If a block is needed, administrators should consider a soft block.

This template can be transcluded onto the user talk page of any IP address belonging to an educational institution such as a school or college. It provides a warning notice to editors and users from the IP, and categorises pages to Shared IP addresses from schools.

Usage

{{SchoolIP
 | name of school or institution
 | host = name of host in the format "proxy.example.edu"
}}

To prevent excessive clutter on the user talk page, and to make future changes easier, this template should NOT be subst:ed. The parameter for hostname is optional.
