Editing restrictions

This page lists individual editors subject to editing restrictions (also called personal sanctions), which includes bans and other types of restrictions; editors who are subject to site bans are listed at Category:Banned Wikipedia users instead. These restrictions may be imposed by the Arbitration Committee or by the Wikipedia community. These do not include general sanctions, which apply to all editors working in particular topic areas.

The Arbitration Committee may impose restrictions on users engaged in inappropriate behavior, usually following a request for arbitration. Such restrictions may be modified or revoked by motion, usually following a request for amendment of the original case.

The community may also impose a number of different editing restrictions on users engaged in inappropriate behavior, usually at an administrators' noticeboard. Such restrictions may be revoked at the same venue by the community when the community believes they are no longer necessary.

If a user has repeatedly violated policy to the point that any further violation will result in a block, specific final warnings worthy of documentation may also be listed here under "final warnings". This section is only for warnings regarding the further violation of existing policies, rather than for added restrictions that revoke an editor's normal editing privileges. For this purpose, an unblock condition that explicitly indicates the user will be reblocked if violated is considered a "final warning".

Types of restrictions[edit]

The following is a list of the most common types of restrictions; however, the wording of such remedies may vary, so be sure to check the wording in each particular case in the first instance prior to relying on default recommendations. Restrictions that do not specify a duration are indefinite by default. These restrictions are usually enforced by blocking the user if they violate them. More unique restrictions which have been imposed in unusual circumstances are not listed.

Account restriction
The user is limited to editing with a certain number of accounts (usually one).

Civility restriction
The user may be sanctioned (including blocks) if they make any edits which are judged by an administrator to be uncivil, personal attacks, or assumptions of bad faith.

Probation (supervised editing)
The user on probation may be banned from pages that they edit in a certain way (usually disruptively) by an uninvolved administrator. Probation is usually used as an alternative to an outright topic ban in cases where the editor shows some promise of learning better behavior.
Move ban
The user is prohibited from directly moving (renaming) pages with the page move feature (sometimes relating only to specific topics or namespaces).
Revert restriction
The user is limited to a certain number of reverts (usually one) per page/topic per period of time (usually 24 hours or one week); exceptions, such as obvious vandalism, may apply. The user is additionally required to discuss any content reversions on the page's talk page.
Topic ban
The user is prohibited from editing either (1) any page (or section of a page) relating to a particular topic, (2) particular pages that are specified in the ban, and/or (3) making any edits in relation to a particular topic. Such a ban may include or exclude corresponding talk pages.
Article ban or page ban
The user is prohibited from editing a specific page or set of pages specified in the ban. Such a ban may include or exclude corresponding talk pages.
Interaction ban
The user is prohibited from interacting with one or more users.

Enforcement[edit]

Editors who violate Arbitration-imposed restrictions may be blocked or otherwise sanctioned as described in the relevant Arbitration case. It is always best for enforcement actions to be taken by uninvolved administrators. Generally, blocks for violating a civility restriction, a revert limitation, or a topic ban start at 24 hours per violation, but may escalate after multiple violations. All blocks and topic bans should be logged at the relevant Arbitration case page. Administrators who plan on enforcing Arbitration restrictions should check the case page for any case-specific enforcement language. For more information, see Arbitration enforcement.

This motion should be enforced under the enforcement clauses of the Race and intelligence final decision.


On 10 April 2016, the following amendment was passed by the Committee:

Following a successful appeal to the Committee the October 2013 amendment to the Race and intelligence case is rescinded and Mathsci (talk · contribs) is unbanned from the English Wikipedia. The unban has been granted on the condition that Mathsci continue to refrain from making any edit about, and from editing any page relating to the race and intelligence topic area, broadly construed. This is to be enforced as a standard topic ban. (rescinded 21 January 2017) The following editing restrictions are in force indefinitely:

Any disputes concerning the scope of the topic-ban may be raised on the Arbitration Enforcement page for prompt resolution. Unnecessary "wikilawyering" about the precise scope of the topic-ban is unwelcome and may be cause for further sanctions.
This topic-ban shall be effective indefinitely, but Noleander may request that it be terminated or modified after at least one year has elapsed. In considering any such request, the Committee will give significant weight to whether Noleander has established an ability to edit collaboratively and in accordance with Wikipedia policies and guidelines in other topic-areas of the project. Any perceptibly biased or prejudiced editing concerning any other group would weigh against lifting of the topic-ban and could also result in further sanctions.

Mbz1 , Gilisa, Factsontheground Interaction ban Mbz1 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log) and Gilisa (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log) are collectively and individually banned from interacting with Factsontheground (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · filter log · block user · block log), and Factsontheground is reciprocally banned from interacting with Mbz1 and Gilisa.

This editing restriction shall include a complete prohibition from comments on the respective user talk pages, filing reports on admin noticeboards, reverting edits on articles, commenting in other venues about the other party, or directly responding to each other's comments on article talk pages. This restriction by itself does not prohibit mutual participation on articles, as long as the editors stay away from each other. The restriction is to be interpreted broadly.

If any of the parties feel that the other party has violated this ban or other Wikipedia policy, and no uninvolved administrator responds to the violation within a reasonable amount of time, they may notify 1 uninvolved administrator of the incident on that administrators' talk page 12 hours after the original perceived infraction, and if that first administrator does not respond by at least acknowledging seeing the report within 24 hrs they may notify a second uninvolved administrator in the same manner, but in no case more than 2 notifications on-wiki. Repeated spurious reports to administrators using this mechanism shall be grounds for blocking for disruption.

Imposed by community consensus at WP:ANI at 13:26, 28 March 2010.

Note: User:Factsontheground renamed to User:Factomancer shortly after imposition of this restriction. [4]

  1. You are indefinitely banned from using any special signatures.

  5. If you try to game these restrictions by being disruptive elsewhere, as defined by observing admins, not you, your block will be reinstated, and you will be subject to an indefinite site ban, which can be imposed by any admin if they deem appropriate.
