Description Thomas Goldammer 2007-01-29 00:27:14 UTC
As can be seen under the above URL, this page was blocked twice with different expiring date. (I 
wonder which one is than the valid one.) I think it would be great to get an error message if the 
page is already on the same block value (thus edit=autoconfirmed, move=autoconfirmed in that 
example above). I mean a similar anti-editconflict feature as was programmed for the user 
blocking. If this bug has been reported already, please tell me where on my meta user page. I 
didn't find it.

The same is for multiple unprotections, see e.g. on 23 July, 2007.

This would just make changing protection more of a pain. It would be nice if blocking did auto-overriding.
