Shared IP address Attention:

This IP address, (IP address appears here), is registered to {{{1}}} and may be shared by multiple users. In the case of entities 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. Similarly an innocent user may get blocked for another user's vandalism. 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 read our advice on this situation.

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

Note: In the event of persistent vandalism, anonymous editing from this IP address may be disabled for up to 1 year at a time. Abuse reports may also be forwarded to your technical administration for investigation in case of long-term abuse by registered users.

Usage: {{SharedIP|institution|host=proxy.example.edu (RDNS optional)}}
