The multiwiki MetaProject on open proxies seeks to identify, verify and block open proxies and anonymity network exit nodes. To prevent abuse or vandalism, only proxy checks by verified users will be accepted. All users are welcome to discuss on the talk page, report possible proxies, or request that a blocked IP be rechecked.

170.178.173.156 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: No activity on the English Wikipedia, but I have reason to believe this is an open proxy due to off-wiki abuse. There is, however, editing activity on the English Wikipedia from the 170.178.160.0/19 range, which belongs to a colocation provider. I would recommend blocking it.

185.44.76.119 - talk - edits - block - log - current blocks - ipinfo - Robtex - WHOIS - proxy checker - Google - HTTP - stalk

Reason: Zare is a webhost, and someone who is proxy hopping on another site is using this IP. Since this IP is also editing Wikipedia, the range probably needs to be blocked here too. PCHS-NJROTC (Messages)Have a blessed day. 18:17, 11 August 2018 (UTC)
