Forums: Index Proposals Implement a Partial Block
Checkmark.png This is a closed discussion about an accepted proposed change on SmashWiki. It remains for archival purposes.

So one time I was anonymously zooming around Wikipedia looking at Logan Paul and I saw this vandal named Chocolate Tastes Nice 10 and I saw he was blocked from editing KSI. I want to propose this because I think minor offenses should be blocked from editing this page but for Major offenses, I think we can block them. The evidence is shown on the partial block list which prevents the user from editing a specific page.

This will help us control the vandalism on the wiki by reducing the amount of pages a vandal has done. I would like to reiterate the fact that first time or medium offenses of Vandalism and Edit Warring should be a partial block and severe offenses should result in a full block.

  1. Support As per above. S3AHAWK said ketchup wonKetchup.pngKetchupJoker.png 16:36, June 6, 2020 (EDT)
  2. Support This sounds like a good idea! As the reasoning suggests, it may help us prevent much of vandalism around here. I see them almost every day. SonDanielSonDanielSignatureHead1.pngSonDanielSignatureHead2.png (talk page) 16:55, June 6, 2020 (EDT)




Did you ask Porplemontage if this can even be implemented first before you opened this? Disaster Flare DisasterFlareSignatureImage.png (talk) 15:42, June 6, 2020 (EDT)

I just checked, and this is included in MediaWiki 1.35. We will get it around September. --Porplemontage (talk) 15:45, June 6, 2020 (EDT)

So Do you have my approval Porple?S3AHAWK said ketchup wonKetchup.pngKetchupJoker.png 15:47, June 6, 2020 (EDT)

Yes, it will be built into the software. Its usage will be up to admin discretion. --Porplemontage (talk) 15:50, June 6, 2020 (EDT)

So Should we close it for no reason being included on MediaWiki 1.35.?S3AHAWK said ketchup wonKetchup.pngKetchupJoker.png 15:56, June 6, 2020 (EDT)

Yes. --Porplemontage (talk) 16:21, June 6, 2020 (EDT)

I'll call this a pass. S3AHAWK said ketchup wonKetchup.pngKetchupJoker.png 16:22, June 6, 2020 (EDT)
