Description Mike.lifeguard 2009-09-08 13:26:08 UTC
Hello, normally with blocking, one is sent to something like however for globalblocking, you are sent to, which is the main page. Please use a query string for the success (or failure?) message like local blocking.
Comment 1 Hazard-SJ 2011-11-04 03:48:30 UTC
It is just without a query string, but the page provides info still.
Comment 2 Siebrand Mazeland 2012-05-07 06:46:08 UTC
Hazard-SJ, do you mean that this report is invalid or "works for me"?
Comment 3 Hazard-SJ 2012-05-08 01:05:40 UTC
I'm only saying that although the user may be sent to, the relevant details are still present. I would like to see a "nicer" URL for that, however, so though this isn't a major problem, it would be good to have it "fixed".
Comment 4 Alex Monk 2012-11-03 19:51:26 UTC
There is a suggestion in bug 36834 to exit to Special:GlobalBlock/$ip.

Basically if you have a series of blocks to do, having to back out of a dead end page is a PITA.  Some variation of the form page is highly desirable, be it a blank form, or the form with the last block action.  Can I say that I know that it is a low traffic page as it is only stewards, we are deserving of the occasional hug <small violin plays in background>

Chris or James: is there a way to get this bug prioritized a bit? It's a nasty workflow issue for stewards and this bug is getting old. It should fairly easy to fix the behavior here.
