There is an ongoing InternetArchiveBot bug which causes users to encounter this error:
blocked: You have been blocked from editing.
This is a distinct message from the one InternetArchiveBot serves to users who are actually blocked. For one, users would not be able to use the bot to begin with if they were blocked.
Our investigation currently points to this being an issue with upstream MediaWiki. Meanwhile, we have had difficulty reproducing this bug on our own end. We are continuing to investigate this bug.
Steps to reproduce:
- Use the Management Interface to (try to) archive a single page. Confirm you are not blocked on the wiki you are trying to edit.
- While editing, receive the error "blocked: You have been blocked from editing."
Hello, today I tried to archive a page using this tool. When I click analyze, it says that I can't archive the page because I'm blocked. But I'm not blocked on the wiki, and this page (https://iabot.toolforge.org/index.php?page=user&id=52135372&wiki=enwiki) doesn't say I'm blocked either. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks...
