Special:Blockwith partial blocks
 
Hello
all,

In 2019, Wikimedia Foundation Anti-Harassment Tools team is
continuing to
make improvements to Special:Block with the addition of the
ability to set
a Partial
block
< https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_health_initiative/Per_user_page,_namespace,_category,_and_upload_blocking >.


While
no functionality will change for sitewide blocks, over the next few
months
Special:Block will change to allow for the ability to block a named
user
account or ip address from:

   1.

   Editing
one or more specific page(s)
   2.

   Editing all
pages within one or more namespace(s)
   3.

  
Uploading files
   4.

   Emailing other
users

Changes are being made to the design of the user interface
for
Special:Block to enable admins to set partial blocks.

All
Wikimedia administrators are invited to try partial blocks on
testwiki.

Special:block on testwiki allows admins to block an account
from editing on
up to 10 pages.

Administrators on Wikimedia projects
are invited to test this new way of
doing blocks on testwiki. Admins can
reply off list to this email to
request access to test.

Tell us if
your Wikimedia project wiki is interested in being one of first
wikis to
enable partial block.

Special:Block with partial block enabled went live
on Italian Wikipedia
today (January 16.)

Our team is looking for more
Wikimedia wikis that want to use the first
version of partial
block.


The first version of partial blocks is simple with new
features to be added
in the coming months.

Please spread the word by
about these changes to Special:Block by
forwarding this emails to others who
might be interested in learning more
about partial blocks.

You can
reach our team on
Meta
< https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Community_health_initiative/Per-user_page,_namespace,_and_upload_blocking >
or
by email to give us feedback about the changes to
Special:Block.
Sydney
