In extreme cases, an entire network may be blocked to prevent an abusive user from continually changing their IP address in order to evade blocks or abusing multiple accounts. If you are a registered user and are seeing this message, please follow the instructions below.
This IP range, 184.108.40.206/24, is registered to Synetrix Holdings Limited, a company that provides internet connectivity to school and other public sector locations in the UK. Individual IPs may belong to one school or may be shared by several schools. This IP range is the site of repeated abusive vandalism attacks. Attempts to stop the vandalism by blocking anonymous editing and account creation have been unsuccessful, as the vandal uses alternate locations to create accounts and then vandalizes from here. We are aware that the IPs are shared. However, for the first two weeks of August, at least 90% of over 1000 edits were vandalism. This has necessitated the blocking of the entire range.
We are also aware that this may cause serious problems once school starts again in the fall. We want to block this vandal while impacting as few good users as possible. The following steps will help you to edit.
