Partially blocked admins should be able to access Special:Block
Open, LowestPublic


If an admin is partially blocked they cannot access Special:Block to modify their own block — or to block another user. However, they can access Special:Unblock and unblock themselves.

Acceptance criteria

  • If an admin is partially blocked, allow them to fully use Special:Block on any user/IP/range, including themselves.

If we want to make it so a PB'd user cannot modify their partial block we should open another ticket.

@Trevor, agree that this ticket should not do the big change of stopping admin from unblocking their own account. And also the PB can not modify belong in another ticket, too.

This ticket is only for allowing admin who have a partial block to be able to do partially and full block for other users.
