Allow renamers to prevent rename requests from specific users
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Hi all,

This is a feature request, but it has come up on the global rename list that it would be very useful to be able to prevent renames from occurring for specific users. This is because there are users who will privately request renames from specific renamers, or who are otherwise ineligible and go in the global queue and be renamed before someone who is familiar with the situation can decline it.

Ideally:

  • Any renamer should be able to flag an account as not being eligible for rename
  • Any renamer should be able to remove this (similar to unblock)

This would be really helpful to the team as a whole, especially as we are a multi-lingual and global team that doesn't always speak the language of the user being renamed.

Someone just pointed out to me that this likely is similar to T101615, so may be able to be merged into that.

I think this is a dupe of the other task. If you disagree, feel free to revert.
