Description Carl Fürstenberg 2008-02-23 20:46:50 UTC
At the moment, it's impossible for an admin to correlate if an autoblock id is in fact affecting a said user/ip. I know there has been privacy problems, but some ways I think could be fixed to help this issue, as for the moment, unblocking an autoblock is a fully blind operation by an admin, the admin cannot see IF in fact the ip is autoblocked, and it's really difficult to lookup the autoblock in question.

Alternative 1 is a way to be possible to check IF an ip is autoblocked by a particular autoblockid ( auto_id(ip) == id );
Alternative 2 could be to make an translation table for autoblock ids where a blocking creates an hidden id; and a public id is visible but is only connected to the autoblocked ip, and not traceable to the original block.

I wonder how this is related to bug 5445 which got fixed after long time.
