Description Jamie Hari 2006-04-06 15:39:21 UTC
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...
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-04-06 15:41:32 UTC
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.
Comment 2 Jamie Hari 2006-04-06 17:17:45 UTC
Too expensive???
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?
