Description

Background

Acceptance criteria

Hi,
does the block message change for all or is this creating a special block message for the temporary users?

@TThoabala I just wanted to confirm with you with the screenshot below is how you want it to look. Also wanted to let you know that when we tested in a different language (German), you see there are extra bullet points "*" along with an extra "." after the reason given. I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that since it added lang=de to it due to the language change?

@GMikesell-WMF this looks odd and yes it shouldn't look this way. could we please create a ticket for this?

@TThoabala I have updated my Checkuser and core for my Local but I'm still experiencing the issue as seen in the screenshot below.

The export from translatewiki.net was part of 80a941f, looks good for me locally

I do see now the format has been updated as seen in the screenshot below. I just wanted to test out a few more things before moving this to Done. Thanks!
