As it stands (1.6.1), if you block a user, line entries for edits they have made
in 'recent changes' still provides you the option to 'block' that user. Of
course, they are already blocked...
* (diff) (hist) . . m! Super-Skrull; 19:13 . . Maryskid (Talk | contribs | block)
Shouldn't this line read:
* (diff) (hist) . . m! Super-Skrull; 19:13 . . Maryskid (Talk | contribs | unblock)
It would be a handy feature to unblock those users, directly from the RC page,
and to facilitate user administration, to quickly see that someone else has
already blocked the particular vandal...
I'm inclined to state that this would be too expensive. An alteration to the
blocking form, to warn in advance that the user is under a block at the moment,
would not be.
I don't pay anything for MediaWiki! J/k.
(Although I probably would...)
I like your idea better I suppose. It would certainly reduce 99.9% of the
unnecessary sql queries. I suppose the unblock would be used far too few times
to validate such a consistant tax on the database.
Could we implement your idea instead?
