Epic: ⚡️ Partial blocks
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Full site blocks are like a sledgehammer, how can we build flyswatters to address misconduct that is not egregious enough for a full site block?

Potential future work — all unprioritized — is captured in T204903: Epic ⚡️ unprioritized Partial Blocks features

TBolliger renamed this task from Epic: ⚡️ Granular types of blocking to Epic: ⚡️ Partial blocks.Jun 12 2018, 10:31 PM

I collated the wikis from the 88 voters on the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey proposal for partial blocks to see which wikis were most represented from the voters. I only counted wikis where the user had 1,000+ edits (not including wikidata.)

zh.wikivoyage, uk, ua.mediawiki, tr.wikiquote, tr, species, ro, or, nl, ka, ja, incubator, hu.wikibooks, he, fr, fi.wikisource, fi.wikiquote, fi, en.wikivoyage, en.wikibooks, ca.wikiquote, ca, bn, bg, bar, arz, ar.wikiversity, ar.wikitonary, ar.wikisource, ar.wikiquote, ar.wikinews, ar.wikibooks, ar were each represented by 1 user.

Keeping in mind that I have little intuition of how this would actually be implemented, or even what would be desirable from either a technical or a community perspective, it seems that a reasonable angle of attack would be to allow blocking a user from exercising a given userright(s), at least for handling the "Actions" component of this functionality, otherwise it seems likely that we'll just keep ending up back here with additional desired blockable actions.
