The example is incorrect because the time difference is ~36 hours and not 12. Moment rounds that up to 2 days.
@Mooeypoo I think you mentioned you could do an audit of the application to see what improvements we might need. Can I assign this to you until that happens?

@nettrom_WMF might be able to help!
Thanks @dom_walden for checking!
I am not entirely sure why the decision was made to spread the block as soon as the source editor is opened. If someone has context behind that, I'd like to look into it. It seems a little too aggressive to me.
Nevertheless, it makes sense for both the standard editors and VE to have the same behavior. I think it is Peter's call to say whether it is worth investing time in changing VE to match the behavior of the standard editors.

I am not sure what is actually the expected behavior. Should autoblocks even be spread when opening the editor? If so, we might need a separate API action for doing that… (in VE we can add that code to action=visualeditor, but this doesn't fix the issue for mobile wikitext editor). Or maybe action=query&prop=revisions should also spread autoblocks?

Thanks for the helpful examples, @JMinor! We'll keep those in mind as we fix the block messages.
Decided to de-prioritise this for now.

Holding off on this until we have finished our work on improving block messaging.
This doesn't seem to have come about from AHT's work on blocks. We're prioritizing more important tasks over this at the moment.
This is waiting until child task T227005: Don't require that the blocker be a User for a SystemBlock is resolved.

If I'm understanding this right, this will not happen for any of WMF wikis but there's a chance this might happen for 3rd-party wikis and that's who we are catering to here. In that light, let's discuss how much effort this is before prioritizing it.
I think it's worthwhile to prioritize this now that we are rolling partial blocks to bigger wikis. Let's discuss this in our next team meeting.

@DannyS712 We discussed this within the team and it seems like this is a very narrow edge case. Partial blocks are for general users. I think if the situation requires an admin to be partially-blocked, they should probably not be an admin in the first place.

Makes sense, thanks @Urbanecm!
@Prtksxna Your expert design advise is needed on this ticket.
@Count_Count and @Urbanecm Not sure if you are the right people to ask about this but I would love it if you could keep an eye out for feedback on the tool. Both positive and negative feedback/testimonies would be helpful. Thank you.
