There are only four pages on Wikibooks beta, so I won't test that. The Expiration section is missing from all beta wikis (these four + wikipedia) so I can't set a block until that's been resolved:

TBolliger added a comment to T216185: Analyze use of mute preferences.

From my user experience perspective, the interaction is wrong, so the reason why is irrelevant since the implementation was wrong in the first place.

My assumption would be, that if you are being bothered by a user on one medium, you are going to go add them to that mute list. There's no need to go add them to the other list unless they start bothering you there as well. Also, if you have emails disabled, there's no need to add anyone at all to that list.

TBolliger added a comment to T209097: FormSpecialPage::checkExecutePermissions should only block a FormSpecialPage if the user is sitewide blocked.

@TBolliger Special:MassMessage does not seem to respect blocks (partial or sitewide). For example, if you are blocked from someone's user_talk page you can still send a message to it.

It would require someone who is blocked also having the massmessage right. Unlikely to be given to a user who is sitewide blocked, but could happen if they are only partially blocked.

Separate bug?

Whelp, it looks like we won't want to merge the lists!

I'm not sure why that would change anything. Just because a user fills out one list, doesn't mean they did not want the user to also be on the other.

TBolliger closed T211578: Replace Block::prevents with setters, getters and method that calculates the block's effects as Resolved.

CheckUser:

After searching for username or IP, it allows you to block a single user or IP by sending you to the URL Special:Block/$user. I did not test this.

You can mass block users after you have found them by IP by posting a list of their usernames. This is a sitewide, autoblock block (no option) but you can choose to block users from sending email and their user talk. I checked that these were applied in the database and were effective in the UI when logged in as those users. Also checked that the autoblock was applied to the last IP the user used (and had the same parameters except duration and email block).

Cannot mass block IPs, that I could see.

If you search for the edits of a blocking user/IP, the block appears in the list with the correct parameters reported.

No apparent way to edit blocks via CheckUser. If you mass block users, any users who are already blocked have their current block left untouched.

I believe this covers all the relevant functionality of CheckUser, unless I have missed something.

I also checked that the page Special:CheckUser was not blocked for someone with a partial block.

TBolliger added a comment to T213101: Add help text to Special:Block for Partial Blocks.

@TBolliger Can we change the message text to this?

  • Sitewide: Every page on the wiki and all other contribution actions.
  • Partial: Specific pages or namespaces. Learn more.

    I think the form makes it clear that you can configure it, it makes it clear what option is which, so you don't need to restate it, it also makes it clear that it applies to the target and that this is specific to editing. That means the only thing we need to do is explain what "Sitewide" and "Partial" mean.
