From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


This category allows administrators to quickly locate current requests for unblock from blocked users; these requests may come from users if they are suffering from collateral damage caused by an unrelated block, or from users who would like a block removed or reduced. Users can add themselves to this category by placing the {{unblock}} template on their user talk page, which they can usually edit while blocked.

Per the blocking policy and block appeals guidelines, unless exceptional or expedient circumstances apply, administrators should not unblock a user without prior discussion with the blocking admin, nor should they review an unblock request where they have a conflict of interest, whether by having set the original block or by participating in disputes relating to it.

In general, an unblock request should be removed and replaced with an appropriate response, when unblocking or reviewing a block.

The list of pages in this category are also on a bot-generated list at User:Cyde/List of requests for unblock.

A banned user (either JA or JtV) is going through his blocked socks and posting unblock requests with an explicit image. To avoid seeing the image, delete the page by using pop-ups. —Jeremy (v^_^v Dittobori) 21:20, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

This category is intended to allow Administrators to easily locate users who have requested that a block placed on them be lifted, whether a legitimate registered user blocked as collateral damage from an IP block against an anonymous user, or a claimed unjust block.

  • An unblock request is made by the user placing an {{unblock}} template on their User talk page (which they can still edit).
  • An admin will review the block, and make the appropriate determination
  • Abuse of {{unblock}} will result in the affected talk page being protected
If you decide to unblock a user
Replace the {{unblock}} tag with {{Unblock granted}}
If there is no legitimate reason to remove the block
Replace the {{unblock}} template with {{Unblock denied}}
Instructions are located on {{unblock}}
Copy-paste the template code provided, and fill in your reason
