Alter globalblocking tables to allow longer comments
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Current, the globalblocking table stores reasons as a tinyblob, meaning that the maximum length of comments (currently 255) cannot be increased
The global blocking table should store reasons as a varbinary(767), to allow for such an increase
