Request for a New Block message[change]

$7 has been blocked from change pages on Wiktionary.

The ability to change pages has been removed from this account, IP address or IP address range by $1. The following reason(s) were given for this block:

$2
This block has been set to end at: $6.

You can still read pages, but you cannot change or create them.
If you have just clicked a red link, you were blocked from creating a new page as no article on that topic is there yet.

If you think you were not blocked fairly, you can ask an administrator to look at your block and decide whether it should be removed. If you are logged in and using an account with a registered e-mail address, you can e-mail an active administrator. If you are logged in with an account but you do not have a registered e-mail address, then please go to your settings to set one.

If you think the block is unfair, you can add {{unblock|reason goes here}} to the bottom of your talk page, replacing reason goes here with why you think your block is not fair, or send an e-mail to simple-admins-l@lists.wikimedia.org and an administrator will look at your reason and reply. You may want to read our guide to unblock requests before requesting to be unblocked.

Please be aware that abuse of {{unblock}}, using the unblock template many times even when it is not , personal attacks, or rudeness, will often lead to removal of changing your talk page to stop further misuse of the unblock template.

Blocked by mistake?[change]

Sometimes large ranges are blocked from changing Wikipedia for very bad cases of vandalism. This means that a lot of people can not change most pages.

If you are blocked and you are trying to change pages, you can send an email to simple-admins-l@lists.wikimedia.org and an administrator will look at your reason and reply.

Also, if you have a dynamic IP address, some dynamic IP addresses may already be blocked when they are assigned to you.

We are sorry for any problems this may cause.

Projects page for schools?[change]

I'm considering a project for my English learners to write content for Simple English wiktionary entries. I know that there is a projects page and a system in place on Simple English Wikipedia for younger students to add content with the oversight of an administrator. I'm wondering if there's any such structure in the SE wiktionary or if I should set up some advanced notice of what I'm planning to do before I do it. Thanks for any guidance you could offer.

Thanks for the heads-up. There is no such system here, unfortunately, so, yes, please, give us some advance notice. In the past, there have been one or two cases where teachers have assigned students to do this, and the often the changes were deleted because they were plagiarized or they duplicated existing definitions. Please, ensure that you and your students are aware of our layout guidelines. Let me know if I can be of assistance.--Brett (talk) 11:53, 3 March 2016 (UTC)
