Description darklama 2006-11-21 01:23:36 UTC
Hello

The English-language Wikibooks community would like to allow blocked users to be
able to still edit their own talk page as is allowed on Wikipedia, so that
blocked users have a second option other then emailing the blocking administrator.
Comment 1 SB_Johnny 2006-11-21 13:04:17 UTC
This seems a bit more of a pressing need now that we can autoblock the IPs of vandal usernames, 
since we have no way of knowing if an IP is shared.

see bug 7883

That still requires a whitelist though... it's hard to imagine that every shared IP could be listed :).

Allowing blocked users to add unblock requests on their talk seems to have worked well for 
wikipedia, so there seems little harm in enabling it on wikibooks as well, especially since we could 
use the new block option for serial vandals and serial spambots, in the hopes of catching the IPs.

Please also enable this for English Wikiversity. I thought this was standard
behavior anyway?
Comment 5 John Schmidt 2006-12-11 17:45:59 UTC
Yes, the English language Wikiversity now needs this....we are finally getting
some editors who we need to block and then talk to.
Comment 6 Tim Starling 2006-12-12 04:51:50 UTC
done
