Description wiki.pedia.WiseFool 2005-11-07 05:12:19 UTC

public internet access (libraries, schools, univerties) in an entire state. This
situation is bad, as blocking an entire system of public internet access
essentially restricts all edits in the state to come from privately owned
computers. So I propose that an option for administrators to ban only anonymous
edits from an IP address be created, to be used in the case of shared proxy

I don't think this is the same feature request. 1294 is about disabling
automatic IP-blocking when blocking a registered user. This one is for being
able to block all anonymous edits from an IP address, while allowing edits from
registered users through it; allowing a sort of partial block.
