You have been blocked temporarily from editing for abusing multiple accounts. Note that multiple accounts are allowed, but not for illegitimate reasons, and any contributions made while evading blocks or bans may be reverted or deleted. Once the block has expired, you are welcome to make useful contributions.
If you think there are good reasons for being unblocked, please read the guide to appealing blocks, then add the following text below the block notice on your talk page: {{unblock|reason=Your reason here ~~~~}}.
Template documentation

This template is used to notify a user that they have been blocked. It informs them of the reason for their block and describes the steps they can take if they wish to continue editing. It has been carefully designed based on guidelines by the user warnings project.

Please refer to the index of message templates before using any template on user talk pages to warn a user. Applying the best template available for your purpose may help reduce confusion from the message you are sending.

Note: Only administrators can block users; adding a block template does not constitute a block. See RFAA to request that a user be blocked.

Usage

Please remember to substitute the template by using {{subst:Uw-sockblock}} rather than {{Uw-sockblock}}. (Although this template must be substituted in the user talk page, it has also been designed to display properly when substitution is not possible.)

This template has three additional parameters which can be used to specify the relevant master, SPI and evidence as applicable:

  • The master parameter can be used to specify the username of the master account (if applicable).
  • The spi parameter can be used to specify the name of the relevant SPI report if applicable.
  • The evidence parameter can be used to include evidence outside of an SPI, or additional to an SPI. It adds content as a new sentence following the first one. That is, directly after "abusing multiple accounts" in the default version.
To give greater detail to your message, you may specify: the block duration, a specific reason for the block, and auto-include your signature.
{{subst:Uw-sockblock|anon=yes|time=Duration|reason=For a different reason|notalk=yes|page=Targeted page|sig=yes|note extra parameters above}}

Notes

  • If you do not set a block expiry, replace time=Duration with indef=yes.
  • An already indefinite block template does not require the time or indef parameters.
  • If not blocking an anonymous user, omit the anon parameter.
  • Include the page parameter to refer to a page on which the conduct supporting the block occurred.
  • The notalk parameter should always be omitted unless the user cannot edit their own talk page.
  • The optional for parameter can be used if the word "for" before the block reason doesn't grammatically work. For example, if for=per is written, the block notice will say "blocked from editing per". Don't use this parameter if you don't want to change the word "for".
