GlobalBlocking is a MediaWiki extension available to stewards to prevent cross-wiki disruption from an IP address or a range of IP addresses. When an IP address or range of IP addresses is globally blocked, they are stopped from editing any public Wikimedia wiki, except for Meta-Wiki, where globally blocked users may appeal the decision.

A current list of globally blocked users is available at Special:GlobalBlockList.

Unblocking and appeal[change source]

Local whitelisting — A user who is globally blocked can be unblocked locally (to edit the specific wiki concerned only), by any administrator, at Special:GlobalBlockWhitelist.

Appeal against a global block — users who are globally blocked may appeal the block at Steward requests/Global, on Meta-wiki.
