IP blocked[change source]
As I see you already have created an account, the block of your second IP should no longer be a problems for you. Noticing your comments about editing at your mate's and two accounts, you may want to also create their account from your place so this is not a problem for them.
Orange DSL's block is a soft block so it only prevents IP editing and account creation. User with accounts can edit normally from their IPs as long as they are logged in. The block was first done because one user decided to only vandalize and create many sockpuppets just to disrupt the wiki. Because this happened for a long time and no other users at the time used Orange DSL, the entire range of IPs were blocked. Since the block only 3 people have brought up a problem with it, yourself and another en:wp user trying to create and the vandal himself. When the block was lifted for the vandal, 6 new sockpuppets were created and pages were vandalized. For the other user, the IP was unblocked, the user created their account and the IP was reblocked and the user edited as normal. As the threat of vandalism is still very large and the small number of good users such as yourself can be helped with minimal fuss, the block is needed. -- Creol(talk) 06:25, 22 August 2008 (UTC)
