  • Example:
    • {{IPSummary|}}

  • I adapted this from Template:IPvandal for use with IP accounts not involving vandalism -- mostly working with WikiProject Spam. Since so much inappropriate linking is done in good faith and therefore not necessarily spamming, the template is not incorporating a pejorative name such as vandal or spam. Several changes:
    • Deleted the "block user" function (I'm not an admin)
    • Later added "deleted contribs" for any admins that want to check this
    • Added a "traceroute" link
    • Added CompleteWhois search (searches external blacklists such as Spamhaus)
      • Sometimes doesn't respond
      • Results sometimes require interpretation -- for instance, dynamic IPs are not open proxies, zombie PCs, or some other evil -- all phone modems and many other connections use dynamic IPs
    • Added -- similar to CompleteWhois, also requires interpretation
    • Added -- similar to CompleteWhois, also requires interpretation
      • Sometimes doesn't respond
    • Gave the stuff in parentheses a small font
    • Added in "tor"
    • Added in Google search from Template:Proxyip2
    • Added "what links to user page"
    • Added "count" - Interiot's edit count tool from Template:User6
    • user page logs" - block log, etc.
    • "x-wiki" - search contributions on all 700+ Wikimedia Foundation projects
      • Uses]
      • For now, all this does is link to the tool -- you'll have to enter the IP address manually
      • Note: this tools works intermittently and may sometimes miss contributions on entire projects. For the sake of brevity, it lists no more than 20 contributions per project.
      • Uses
      • Note: This tool sometimes misses link additions
      • This tool also picks up link additions that are reversions of page blanking by vandalism patrollers and anti-vandalism bots, so not every link addition you turn up with this is spamming!
    • AboutUs link checks for any contributions by this IP to the SEO directory of domains; if so, this can be useful in finding additional domains that may have been spammed
