Description Victor Vasiliev 2008-02-12 18:56:18 UTC
I have already impelemted ipb_by_text colomn, so zero-id users (anons and crosswiki) may block somebody. Required for crosswiki blocks.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-02-13 20:54:27 UTC
I'm a bit leery of anon blocks, but this could be handy.

> I'm a bit leery of anon blocks
I think we'll call that the understatement of the year (for now). Crosswiki blocks (something VasilievVV has pretty much finished implementing now) need this though.

Note, though, that we'll have to fill the ipb_by_text fields for old entries based on their ipb_by, which will be a huge operation for large wikis.
