Description Huji 2007-11-20 20:56:23 UTC
When visiting a page like this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Blockip/100.100.100.100

I think it would be useful to have a link to the user and user talk page for the user (or IP) in question from the Blockip page. It can be done by checking what comes after "Blockip/" is a single IP or a user account, and providing the links accordingly (no such links should be given when an IP range is provided).

Before providing a patch for this bug, I'd like to have your comments about the idea.

I'm not sure that's such a good idea - you can change the target, and then what should happen to the user/user talk links? Yet more AJAX?

There's already a link to [[Special:Contributions/100.100.100.100]], I don't see [[User:100.100.100.100]] any different.
You'd only need AJAX if you were to change those links on target change (currently they aren't) and wanted to change it's color (blue/red) depending on its existance (just change it to an always-blue 'view 100.100.100.100 page').

I had never noticed that before. I guess it'd be nice to have those links change as you change the target in the block form. Beyond that, I guess adding the suggested links is fine.
