Hello. At Special:GlobalBlock there's an option to block also the IP or IP range at Meta-Wiki, since global blocks do not apply to Meta by default. However the extension do blocks with weird block settings and logs. For example, in Special:Log/block:
- 10:14, 7 March 2015 Tegel (talk | contribs | block) blocked 126.96.36.199 (talk) with an expiry time of 1 year (Open proxy: Open proxy) (unblock | change block)
By seeing this log, we guess that the IP has been blocked for all users (anon. only unchecked), account creation is allowed and talk page/email is also enabled.
However if we check the Special:BlockList we see:
|Timestamp||Target||Expires||Blocking admin||Block parameters||Reason|
|10:14, 7 March 2015||188.8.131.52 (talk)||10:14, 7 March 2016 (unblock/change block)||Tegel (talk/contribs/block)||account creation disabled, cannot edit own talk page||Open proxy: Open proxy|
- There's a disparity between what's shown on Special:Log/block and Special:BlockList wrt block settings.
- There's no reason to block talk page access for globally blocked IPs at Meta unless such access is abused.
- Local block should use the same settings as global block. If the IP is globally blocked for anonymous users only, the block at Meta should also be for anonymous users only (with account creation disabled for both cases).
