Description Manish 2010-03-23 05:45:24 UTC
see [[w:Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#.22This_user_is_currently_blocked.22_message]].

The proposal is to change the "This user is currently blocked" message at [[MediaWiki:Sp-contributions-blocked-notice]], so that it shows "IP" address when the user is an IP, and "account" when it is an account. At enwiki, a temporary fix has been put into place, changing "user" to "account or IP address".
This change should go to all wikis.
Maybe two mediawiki pages can be made, each with a different text. Or parese functions can be used (see the village pump entry for the parser function)
