The multiwiki MetaProject on open proxies seeks to identify, verify and block open proxies and anonymity network exit nodes. To prevent abuse or vandalism, only proxy checks by verified users will be accepted. All users are welcome to discuss on the talk page, report possible proxies, or request that a blocked IP be rechecked.

108.171.128.0/19[edit]

Reason: previously blocked webhost range is back to editing again. 106.176.182.73 (talk) 20:34, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

I'm hesitant to block scansafe. It's a corporate proxy yes, but more of a closed proxy that filters all traffic thru a malware scanner. I'd love another opinion. SQLQuery me! 02:37, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Well, for what it's worth, there are spammers and sock puppets using this, though the collateral damage looks to be high. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 03:00, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

IP 116.90.224.0/21[edit]

Symbol wait old.png A user has requested a proxy check. A proxy checker will shortly look into the case.

116.90.229.186 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - ipcheck - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: I already blocked the single IP as a proxy after a report at WP:AN3, and after seeing the results of ipcheck, but would like to know if the entire WHOIS range should also be blocked (either /20 or /24 depending on which tool you believe). The ipqualityscore and ipcheck were both sure of their findings, and User:Zzuuzz blocked the single IP previously. EdJohnston (talk) 02:04, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Based on some checks and my previous experience of this IP, it's just a localised problem. Other contributions from the range are fairly typical. -- zzuuzz (talk) 17:55, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
