Add links to CentralAuth/GlobalBlock for the user
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Hi. Would it be possible to add links to CentralAuth and GlobalBlock on the results page? It'll speed stewards work instead of copy-pasting the username/IP back into Meta pages. Regards.

Good idea! I'll accept this feature request.

I'd recommend we create a new section for these links (e.g. not repeated for each wiki). Perhaps similar to what we do already with hostname information,
which is output atop the page between the search form and the search results. For wildcard queries we can do multiple lookups upto a certain limit (e.g.
upto 10). We do the same already with hostname information for IP-addresses.

Links atop works for me. There's indeed no need to repeat the links as they'll not change and should point to Meta. Thanks.
