Could checkuser or at least some thing (e.g IP range outputter) that can return an IP upon request (even if it requires another steward to press a confirm button or similar in order to output it) be activated on the beta cluster? Another possible method is the ability to block users globally/make autoblocks global (i.e. Autoblocks are just like a normal block). There has been a lot of spam recently and we need at least some easy way (even if it takes a bit of confirmation time) that can return an accurate IP address to certain users with the right permissions that DO NOT have database access.
Please find a way to action this so those on this cluster can deal with the problem a little more efficiently.
