Description Sérgio 2005-07-10 14:36:25 UTC
On the [ Ipblocklist] when
somebody that shares a IP address with a blocked username appears the following
entry at the list:
13:00, 25 July 2005, SYSOP blocked #00000 (expires 13:00, 26 July 2005)
(Autoblocked because your IP address has been recently used by "blocked-user".
The reason given for block is: "'''some reason'''".)
Instead of showing a number it would be better to show the ip address or the
username of the person that shares that ip, in a way to prevent possible
vandalism in the future, and to see if the ip is not a open proxy used by other
"valid" users.
