Description Dejan Papež 2008-03-15 09:00:15 UTC
I'd like to propose that users have access to the raw wikisource of pages even when they're blocked (prevented from editing it). This would be useful for users blocked only in one project who want to edit the source in advance or copy it elsewhere. Now an unconvenient option is to log out or to create another user account.

Please correct me if I'm not understanding what you ask here, but if what you propose is that a blocked user should be able to see the "source" of pages, then it is already there. They can't edit a page, but if they click on the "edit" link on the top of the page, they will see the source of the page.
Comment 2 Dejan Papež 2008-03-15 22:13:02 UTC
My mistake. I'm sorry this is written below the message. Perhaps there could be a link at the top of page to jump to the source.
