Create parameter(s) to have the blocked message customize based on whether or not talk page access is revoked
Open, LowestPublicFeature


As brought up at en-WP here, the blocked message currently includes the line "Even when blocked, you will usually still be able to edit your user talk page and email other editors and administrators." This is non-optimal: for editors who can still edit their talk page and email, it should say so, and for editors who have had that access revoked, it should say that. Could we add variables so that the message will be able to customize as appropriate?

Change 848094 had a related patch set uploaded (by OwenR; author: OwenR):

[mediawiki/core@master] Add new $9 parameter which can be used to determine if user block prevent talk page access or not.

Hi @OwenRB; thanks for coding a patch for this! Just wanted to circle back, is there anything I can do to help get it reviewed?

It’d be optimal to also have another parameter for indicating email access, as the two abilities (talk and email) are separate :)
