Description Tisza Gergő 2009-03-01 22:49:54 UTC
The introductory texts of block-related special pages ([[MediaWiki:Blocklogtext]], [[MediaWiki:Ipblocklist-summary]], [[MediaWiki:Globalblocking-logpagetext]], [[MediaWiki:Globalblocking-list-intro]]) are typically used to refer to each other and external tools like the crosswiki blocklist, so that administrators can look up more information. It would save a lot of typing, if the messages had access to the username parameter when the list is filtered to a single user, so that the links can too include such filtering.

Note that some of these special pages expect the user name in the URL parameter to be in the form "User:Foo", while others use simply "Foo". The parameter passed to the interface message should be just "Foo" in both cases.

What do you mean by this, exactly? Just when the offset is used, or when limit=1 is also specified? Or when the prefix matches one single user?
It seems a bit tricky to change the summary of special pages depending on switches they contain below.

Just passing the search string to the messages (regardless of the number of search results) should be fine, I think.

It's impossible to do it "regardless of the number", which username would you pass among all those in the block log?

Adding many blockers of bug 38638 to the list of "easy" bugs, to mark them as candidates for [[mw:Google Code-in]] tasks (gci2013). If you think this bug is not suitable, remove the keyword.
