Description Ajraddatz 2014-05-20 02:32:58 UTC
Local user block from global block should prevent account creation. Currently it restricts talk page access, which makes no sense. That should also be removed.
Comment 1 billinghurst 2014-05-20 03:34:14 UTC
and it enforces "Prevent logged-in users from editing from this IP address" which is not usually the default that we want for meta.  Generally if a logged in user is caught by a global block, it is preferable that they can request the removal or an IPBE from a logged in account.
Comment 2 Tomasz W. Kozlowski 2014-05-20 07:58:19 UTC
Is this a Wikimedia site request that can be fixed by a configuration change, or a MediaWiki bug?
Comment 3 billinghurst 2014-05-20 08:19:41 UTC
It is part of Special:GlobalBlock
Comment 4 Trijnstel 2014-05-20 09:14:53 UTC
Hoo man (assigned to this bug by me now) said he did this a few days ago; he added the prevent account creation and it went live today indeed, but apparantly he made a mistake and he added another thing or so. Hoo, can you fix this?
Comment 5 Marius Hoch 2014-05-20 14:32:28 UTC
The patch for that is here and it's going to go live on Tuesday 27th in the evening, like I told you earlier.

Please CC me on bugs, if you want me to notice them, I'm not going around bugzilla searching for interesting bugs...
