Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Admins and stewards/Allow further user block options ("can edit XY" etc.)

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Allow further user block options ("can edit XY" etc.)

  • Problem: Admins can only block users from editing any page at all (the one exception being that user's talk page). If a blocked user is given the right to edit on a specific page or specific pages, the block still has to be lifted completely. This could be confusing, as the community has still decided to block them from other pages.
  • Who would benefit: Administrators and blocked users.
  • Proposed solution: Create options for users to edit pages to appeal the block, edit or not edit certain pages or namespaces, or do certain actions such as registering an account, use email or upload files.
