Show block log on Special:Unblock
Open, LowPublic

Description

Special:Unblock is just a simple form for unblocking a given username. Unlike with Special:Block, though, navigating to Special:Unblock/Username will not show the block log. You have to click on a sidebar option to go to Special:Block or Special:Contributions to see a block log.

T160233 is marked as stalled and is noted as requiring an RfC at minimum, with a chance of not happening at all. I wouldn't think this needs to wait on that unrelated process.

I'm not sure where you see a minimum RfC requirement - this was already discussed at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Wishlist_Survey_2016/Categories/Admins_and_stewards#Enable_administrators_to_update_block_logs

This request shouldn't be dependent on if T160233 is ever done.
