Usage[change source]

{{Anonblock|COMMENTS (optional)|sig=~~~~ (optional)}}

If there is an = character in the optional comments, you have to quote the first parameter, like this:

{{Anonblock|1=OPTIONAL COMMENTS|sig=~~~~ (optional)}}

Important: Only use sig=~~~~ if you wish to sign the default blocking notice when used on a talk page. Remember that signatures are not substituted in the block reason field.

Recommendations: Do not substitute ("subst:") this template as contact details may change in the future. This template was designed especially for use as a block reason as readers frequently attempt to email us before they even read their IP address's talk page.

You are encouraged to use this template as a blocking reason whenever you are blocking a shared IP. For blocks shorter than three months, it is recommended that you do not duplicate this notice on a blocked IP's talk page. Instead, use other user block templates to provide immediate notification to the vandal of the block. As this template is rather large, it is preferable that we do not have it displayed multiple times simultaneously for each talk page.

Asking to be unblocked[change source]

If you are currently blocked from editing Wikipedia and think this block is unfair, you may ask to be unblocked by adding "{{unblock|your reason here}}" to your talk page. An administrator will look into the matter. For further help, leave a message at "Wikipedia:Simple talk".
