From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

abusive Usernames in the blocklog

  • Problem: Usernames are always saved in the blocklog and other logs, some usernames should not be visible in the log. Logs must all be deleted individually.
  • Who would benefit: Sysops
  • Proposed solution: On the page "Special:block" the possibility to hide / suppress (for Oversighters) the username in all logs.

  • There's multiple variants that could be explored here such as suppressing the username in rollbacks, log entries, etc. That being said, I hope this would continue to remain an oversight-only function since hideuser is generally restricted to oversighters. --Rschen7754 01:18, 17 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
By hide, I mean the same effect as log deletion. And suppression should of course continue to be carried out by Oversigthers.--𝐖𝐢𝐤𝐢𝐁𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 👤💬 08:21, 17 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
