Is it off-wiki harassment to appeal a block on Discord if the blocking admin has disclosed their Discord username publicly? I want to be sure so as not to accidentally stalk people.
I got blocked from The Miraculous: Tales Of Ladybug & Cat Noir wiki!
I know why I got blocked. It's because I put a post ranking all my favorite season 4 episodes from my most favorite to my least favorite. Then someone says that Mega Leech should be on the bottom due to the last scene. I had Mega Leech at #2. So we started fighting and I may of cussed him out. Please contact someone like @Bunnybug or @PandaJJMusic to please unblock me. And tell them that it will never happen again! And if it happens again they can ban me for ever and ever and ever and ever and ever!

This Morning, I was blocked without warning on Logopedia for a indefinite period, I’m very sorry that I won’t try to add primary logo templates for no reason on UNNECESSARILY articles. I WON'T DO THIS EVER AGAIN!
Admins, my friend is sorry for her actions and wants to be unblocked. She wanted me to come on because she can’t message. She is very sorry for her actions.
I have no idea why I was blocked by Inky and I can’t even contact him
(For now I'm not naming names. I don't want to risk creating antagonism. But I'm also out of answers.)
I'm a longtime Fandom wiki editor. There's this one wiki I've been editing on for more than a decade. And today, I was...blocked, indefinitely, and I didn't even see it coming.
Within the past month I had an autism-related mental health crisis. I'm on the autism spectrum, and I also have a certain mood disorder, and I'm medicated for it as needed. I was a specialist in heavily editing certain areas of this particular wiki. But recently some of the pages involved were getting serially vandalized by outside users, and a lot of those pages ended up getting permanently edit-locked. That, I could understand, but then I asked the administrator for content moderator privileges so that I could continue to do maintenance to these pages.
I expected the request to either be accepted or declined. What I did not expect was...an unexpectedly scathing criticism of my request, in a way that seemed to call into question my respect for the wiki. Maybe that wouldn't be unexpected if a random new user had made the request, but I had been editing at that wiki for nearly a decade, and thought I had a good working relationship with the administrator.
I initially tried what I could to accept the decision with grace. But inside I was freaking out and having a panic attack, not over the declination of my request, but with the doubting of my motives. I had a meltdown, and for the next day or two I struggled to control my moods and racing thoughts, struggling to be able to process on a social level what had just happened. I must have left too many messages in a short period of time, because I soon found myself blocked for a week for the sake of everyone's mental health.
I took this time to boost my medications and bring my moods under control. Once I had achieved enough lasting calm, I composed one well-structured private message organizing my thoughts, and trying to explain what had happened to me. It wasn't easy - I had to deal with dulled moods, low blood pressure and some bad headaches - but this time I was determined to stay calm and rational and do the right things.
Later, after the suspension ended, I tried to reach the administrator to seriously discuss what had happened. This time, being calmer, my messages were fewer and further between, but he wasn't responding. I tried his message wall, I tried direct-messaging him on Discord, and I worked to maintain my calm so that we could talk, but nothing.
After a while I returned to my normal amount of medication, so that I could get my moods and productivity back. Then, another editor raised a dispute with an item in an article. I spoke to the user on their message wall. I had some...complex thoughts that weren't easy to articulate, and it turned into a multi-paragraph wall of text. (I frequently struggle to say things briefly, because I also struggle at times with knowing whether I'm being clear, so I usually choose clarity over brevity. But this was also nothing new - I'd always been known for rather long-winded comments, and I'd made no secret that it was because of a communications handicap.)
The administrator responded to my comment, telling me to keep my comments shorter, and took issue with some of the logic in my comments, including whether a certain point of contention was to be considered objective or to be considered fanon. This time, I immediately boosted my meds again, and made sure I was ready to talk again. I again tried to respond, and later to reach out to the administrator, on his message wall, and in his Discord, but again, no responses.
All the while, I kept in contact with a different assistant administrator, trying to keep my head calm and in the game, and discussing ways I could establish communication with the other administrator. All they could really advise me was to keep trying. His comments were a lot more encouraging, and that helped me stay determined to find a way to tackle and mend whatever was the problem.
Finally, I realized it was possible they had not received my Discord message at all, for whatever unknown reason. So I made a new message wall thread, asking the administrator if he had received my messages. He said no. I said that made his non-responses make a lot more sense, and I asked what his preferred means of discreet (non-public) contact was. He said simply, "Don't."
I soon realized that I was unable to respond. I thought he had locked the thread, but then I quickly realized that I had been blocked from the wiki again. I looked up the block reason, and it said, "with an expiration time of indefinite (account creation disabled) (Intimidating, harassing, and spamming users and admins, bullying a user into quitting, adding fanon to articles, guilt-tripping other users, and overall being a liability to the Wiki)".
I was stunned. I had been trying hard to responsibly treat my mental illness, to open communication about issues, and to do the right things. I know that, during my meltdown phase before I started boosting my meds, I was being a bit on the spammy side, trying to figure out what was what. But intimidation? Harassment? Bullying? Guilt-tripping? I have a mood disorder (for which I see a doctor and am medicated) and a communications handicap and I've been trying very hard to do the right things. I've been trying to cultivate good working relationships with my fellow editors, to build and mend bridges, establish understanding, anything I can do. I wanted to talk things through with the administrator and couldn't get a response. I don't even know who quit or why, let alone that I was thought to have been bullying them. I don't want anyone feeling grief, or quitting.
I honestly...don't know what to do now. (Even the other administrator isn't responding to me anymore, after having been so positive and encouraging to me.) It was startling enough that an administrator I thought I had had such a good working relationship with, had seemingly soured on me. I tried to take everything he said to heart, take care of my mental health, and come back with my A-game. But then when I tried to reach out, I kept finding only silence. I mean, yeah, I had an abrupt mental health episode, but since then I've been trying to do all the right things. I wanted to do right by him, and by other people, and by the wiki in general. I wish I could understand why all this happened the way it did, and why nothing I did was able to make things better.
I'm trying to help this one wiki with an incredibly troublesome user. They were blocked for some offenses, but our main concern is with the proof of them being underaged.
They have stated that they are 11, but appealed their ban after saying it was their sister. For some reason, this was a perfect excuse, but now this user is at it again.
This must violate Fandom rules, yes? How do I go about telling the admin to re-block them, when they obviously believe the offender?
Why can I not Post on a Wiki Fandom even when i'm not blocked?
Hi @XxStarviewxx im not really sure who to contact about this, but I think you are an admin on the adopt me fandom and I think I have been blocked. I’m really really sorry if I did anything wrong, I promise you it was unintentional and if you could let me know what it is I would really appreciate it :) and is it possible to unblock me? If you let me know what I did I promise I won’t do it again
I got blocked by uploading fake logos, can some one help me! 😭
I cannot contact admins in Logopedia to unblock, there's no edit own talk page.
I want to unblock account in Logopedia.
I was blocked on one of the three wikis I care about, and the only way I can ask why is if I tag an admin from the wiki here @ThatAzazelFire do you know why I was banned? I know I added an "interesting image" but I did my best to censor it and it was just to ask someone about it. I was never intending to be inappropriate ever again. I'm sorry, please forgive me. If you won't forgive me, can you at least give me a day to explain to everyone why I'll be gone? And for how long will I be gone? I already miss everyone there, and it hasn't been an hour. Please, PLEASE forgive me. I will never post bad images there again. Cross my heart. Promise. From the bottom of my heart, I promise to never post bad images ever again ever.
Can a sysop block himself?

And then she infinitely bans me, i try to appeal and all she says is ''I'll leave everything as it is'' Please help, as im quite sure she has wrongly banned me
So I Got Banned From A Wiki For “Vandalism”... The Only Thing Is... I Didn’t Vandalize Anything. I Noticed That Someone Had Changed The Title Of The Page From “Dum” To “Dumb”. I Went Into Edit Mod But Could Not Figure Out How To Fix It, So I Made Some Very Minor Edits On Grammar, Spelling, And Spacing Errors Instead... When I Got Back On Two Hours Later, I Was Banned. I Don’t Know How, But The Person Who Banned Me Seems To Think That I Was The One Who Changed The Title. I Would Like To Get Unbanned, Because I Was Unfairly Banned... The Only Thing Is That I Am Brand New To This Site And I Do Not Know How Anything Works. Can Anybody Help Me?
Hi, I've been blocked on the pokemon fan made evron cause we all have desighns wiki and I've been unable to find a reason for my block in my profile or on the profile of the admin that blocked me. Also, they gave me no warning as far as I can tell, is this a reasonable/good block?
