Block messages for rangeblocks are confusing
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Currently, the block message for both single blocked IP's and rangeblocks is

Information about the block: account creation from this IP address (address or range) was blocked by (blocking admin), who gave the reason the reason

In case of a range block it would be much clearer for the blocked to get a message more like

"Information about the block: account creation from the range (range), which your ip address (address) is a part of was blocked by (blocking admin), who gave the reason"

or something like
"Your IP address (address) is part of the range (range). account creation from that range was blocked by (blocking admin), who gave the reason (reason)"

That's a good start, but also need to split up the general block message - blockedtext

blockedtext

Actually, I wonder if this should be further split up into different messages for a user block, and IP block and for an IP range block.

Nevermind. After discussion unclear if we really want to do that, so split to separate bug, bug 58858
