Изузеци овоме су када је очигледно да је дошло до грешке (у смислу омашке, не грешке у процени), а администратор који је блокирао корисника није онлајн: на пример, ако је корисник блокиран због кршења правила о три реверта, а дошло је до само три реверта. Ако умешани администратор није доступан, оставите му поруку на страни за разговор.
=== Controversial blocks ===
Blocks may be damaging when consensus proves elusive. Examples include:
* blocks of logged-in users with a substantial history of valid contributions, regardless of the reason for the block
* blocks that, while possibly wise, lack policy basis.
* short term or '''cool-down''' blocks, e.g. if a user is angry about something controversial, blocking that user will rarely cool him down
Once you are convinced that a block is warranted, the recommended procedure for controversial blocks is:
Check the facts with care.
# Reread appropriate parts of Wikipedia:Blocking policy.
# Contact other administrators to sanity-check your reasoning, preferably on [[WP:ANI|ANI]].
# After receiving feedback, place the block, wording the "reason" message with care and without jargon, and include a link to the user page of the user being blocked.
# Place a notice of the block on the [[Википедија:Talk page#User talk pages|talk]] page of the affected user, with additional rationale, outlining the facts and the part of the blocking policy you feel applies.
# Stay around to discuss the block with other Wikipedians.
# If an act or acts of disruption do not warrant a 24-hour block, consider a warning or posting to [[WP:ANI|ANI]] before issuing a short term block. (Someone may well block them longer than you would have!)
# If in doubt, don't block.
[[Википедија:Wheel war|Block wars]], in which a user is repeatedly blocked and unblocked, are extremely harmful. They frustrate and disappoint seasoned Wikipedians and encourage further bad behavior from the blocked user. If you disagree with a block, discuss the matter with the blocking admin and others, and try to reach a consensus, rather than unblocking — the blocking admin is likely to know more about the background of the situation than you do.
