Blocking vs delayed save[edit]

The task (T125723) Create an 'ARTICLE_LASTXH_CONTRIBUTORS' function is about how to detect and then block a user flagged as troublesome, but I don't believe blocking is a good solution. It could even escalate the situation. The editing user should rather be given a forced delay before (s)he can save an entry, thereby enforcing time for reflection. Perhaps it is enough to just post a friendly warning. — Jeblad 12:06, 29 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Jeblad, no, this is for blocking the editing of a page for a certain amount of time (1h up to 7d), after the "opponent" has edited it, and vice versa, all the best, --Ghilt (talk) 15:39, 17 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
