Metakgp:SysAdmin/Finding out if an IP is blocked and why
When editing a page or creating a new account, you might see an error that tells you that the IP address you are trying to access this wiki from has been blocked.
To find out why the IP was blocked, you can follow the following steps:
- Go to Special:BlockList
- Enter the IP address in the search box
This page can also be used to find the reason a user was blocked, who blocked them and when they blocked the user.
We use the StopForumSpam extension. This extension has a list of IP addresses, so even if an admin on this wiki didn't block your IP, it might have been blocked through the block list on [stopforumspam.com stopforumspam.com]
