== Instructions to admins ==
How to block ===
Sysops may go to [[Special:Specialpages|Special pages]] and select the "Block a user/IP address" link. This takes them to [[Special:Blockip]], which has further instructions. Special:Blockip is also accessible via the [block] link that appears next to each non-logged in user on [[Special:Recentchanges|recent changes]].
The "reason" that the administrator fills in will be displayed to the blocked user when he attempts to edit, as well as appearing in the [[Special:Log/block|block log]] and the [[Special:Ipblocklist|block list]]. If it is not for an obvious reason, or if more than one line is needed to explain the block, the administrator may record the block at the [[Wikisource:administrator's noticeboard|administrator's noticeboard]].
Users should be notified of blocks on their talk pages. That way, other editors will be aware that the user is blocked, and will not expect responses to talk page comments. In some cases, an IP may be shared by administrators who request they be notified before blocks are placed on them (so that they may finish any administrative work they are doing). For this reason, it is advisable to check the user talk page of the IP where any such request will be listed.
