Hello, I didn't realise this feature was only set for en.wp and en.wn. Can it please be
set for the Commons, too?

Thanks!

What about allowing blocked users to edit their own
user page and talk page on all wikis, unless there is a
good reason not to do so (I guess this would require
software changes and widespread policy changes, but I
think it's a good idea)?

It's particularly frustrating for a user acting in good
faith to get a long message on their talk page,
possibly from the admin who blocked them, and have no
way of responding to it.

Set.

Was this for all Wikimedia projects, or just Commons?

Just Commons. I've just blocked my test account in my project and I couldn't
edit the talk page afterwards. It would be nice to enable it generally. However,
the page locks should still work if the page really needs to be locked for the
blockee.
