This is the same problem we have with the forum - the users' true IP is masked and can't be properly blocked.

Hi!
Now when I'm trying to edit a Wiki page on a world.waze.com/wiki/ I get:
You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
Your IP address has been automatically blocked because it was used by another user, who was blocked by Shirlig. The reason given is:
Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "MackHSHD".
The reason given for MackHSHD's block is "Spamming links to external sites"
Start of block: 07:27, 3 June 2013
Expiry of block: 07:27, 4 June 2013
Intended blockee: 10.250.67.95
You may contact Shirlig or one of the other administrators to discuss the block.
Note that you may not use the "email this user" feature unless you have a valid email address registered in your user preferences and you have not been blocked from using it.
Your current IP address is 10.250.67.95, and the block ID is #2. Please include all above details in any queries you make.

My local network is 172.16... So you probably just blocked your proxy server or something, which may affect many users.

Please unblock this private IP 10.250.67.95.

Thanks!

I just found an article that seems to be sheer spam.
http://world.waze.com/wiki/?title=Under ... _powershot
I deleted the content since it has nothing to do with Waze and it seems to have been created to increase the views of a youtube video, please delete the article.

It's ironic to find myself IP banned when I'm trying to delete another two camera related articles:

http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php?titl ... e_Insights

http://world.waze.com/wiki/index.php?ti ... kon_camera

IP ban just will not work if the spammer is able to change his/her IP but true editors cannot do it.

Thanks edsonajj.

There were a couple of other pages I found as well. I reported them directly to Jonypony.

It is a 24 hour ban. It got me too. Should be back to normal tomorrow unless the problem user comes back to do more damage. I already sent a PM to the Waze team with some recommendations if this continues.

Ban lifted. Both paged blanked out and moved to titles "SPAM Deleted 01" and "SPAM Deleted 02". If the Waze team can actually delete the pages that would be even better.
