Shared IP.svg Attention:

This IP address, 208.81.184.4, is registered to Vangent, a General Dynamics Company, and may be shared by multiple users. In the case of organizations using proxy servers, this IP address may in fact represent many users at many physical computers.

For this reason, a message intended for one person may be received by another and a block shared by many. If you are editing from this address and are frustrated by irrelevant messages, you can avoid them by creating an account for yourself. In some cases, you may temporarily be unable to create an account due to efforts to fight vandalism, in which case, please see here.

If you are autoblocked repeatedly, we encourage you to contact your Internet service provider or IT department and ask them to contact Wikimedia's XFF project about enabling X-Forwarded-For HTTP headers on their proxy servers so that our editing blocks will affect only the intended user.


Caution should be used when blocking this IP or reverting its contributions without checking - if a block is needed, administrators should consider using a soft block with the template {{anonblock|optional comment}} as the block reason.

Note: In the event of severe vandalism from this address, abuse reports may be forwarded to your network administrator for further investigation.


The main talk page for editors at this IP address is found at w:User talk:208.81.184.4. Please consider posting comments there instead of here.


Restricted editing from this IP address[edit]

Due to a change in company internet usage policy, people using this IP address can no longer be involved with any change on any Wikimedia project which might in any way be considered an expression of "personal opinions on political, social, inflammatory or volatile subjects". This is being interpreted very broadly, and as such, this essentially precludes editors from this IP from participating above the most basic WikiGnome level (e.g. typos, misspellings, minor formatting fixes). Sorry for this unexpected change, and thanks to everyone with whom editor(s) from this IP have worked with in the past. -- 208.81.184.4 22:39, 9 May 2012 (UTC)

We have to thank you all for your valuable contributions. I guess this change is related to the fact that Vangent now belongs to General Dynamics. Of course we regret to loose active contributors but we also appreciate WikiGnoming. If there is something we or I could do, don't hesitate to contact us/me. -- Rillke 11:09, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

If you created this category, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for discussion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it. If the category is up for deletion because it has been superseded, consider the notion that although the category may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new category.
