Description Netoholic 2005-01-09 07:59:38 UTC
There are many occasions, such as when a username is offensive or when a bot is not being run 
properly, where it is appropriate to block by username/account only. Usually, when this happens now, 
the IP auto-blocks must be undone manually.

It would be far more useful to have an extra option on the admin block screen to allow blocking by 
username only., so that IP auto-blocks are not generated.
Comment 1 Netoholic 2005-01-09 08:01:56 UTC
Additionally, and probably most usefully, this will be an excellent option for when the user account is coming from a major 
ISP proxy, or other shared IP.

Comment 3 Christopher Beland 2005-10-26 06:48:34 UTC
As a bot operator, I have certainly run afoul of this problem.  It is
particularly annoying that the bot operator cannot respond to complaints about
bot behavior because they are blocked from editing talk pages (along with
everything else).  So this would be nice to do.

Comment 6 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-01-16 18:41:56 UTC
Also have a look at the UsernameBlacklist extension (in cvs).
Comment 7 Chris McKenna 2006-04-27 20:34:41 UTC
See also [[Bug 550]] which may implement what you are looking for here
Comment 8 Chris McKenna 2006-04-27 20:36:12 UTC
That link should of course go to bugzilla bug #550 (hopefully [[bugzilla:550]]
will work)

Revised patch, without minor bug

I realise that, per a discussion with Simetrical on IRC, this does not
completely resolve the bug. However, it might be useful to commit; I'm sure
there are always benefits to giving our sysops more choice with how they block.

Tested patch, giving sysops the option of disabling autoblocks when blocking a user.

This should fully resolve the bug. Note that attachment 2599 [details] may still be worth
committing.

Previous patch did not include the update SQL file.
Comment 14 Andrew Garrett 2006-11-01 11:44:00 UTC
Patch 2614 was applied in r17338. Resolving as FIXED
Comment 15 Stacey Greenstein 2006-11-03 19:49:14 UTC
How about changing the text a bit? It seems like a strange option when you are
blocking an IP. How about "If this is a username block, also block all IPs used
by this user"?
