The Commons RFC lists some use-cases and case studies that generally apply to all wikis, maybe with the exception of the copyvio use-case:

  • An otherwise productive user has an agenda on a particular topic (e.g. politics, religion, etc.) or has a topic ban.
  • There is sustained vandalism to one page from an identifiable IP range. (e.g. students from a school IP range vandalizing logos for local schools.)
  • A user have been sanctioned with an interaction ban.
  • A user abuses the Email User feature but is otherwise productive.
  • A user makes ill-advised edits to templates.
  • A user is edit warring - Currently, if a user is edit warring, they may be site-blocked for at least 24 hours on a first offense. With partial blocks, a user could be blocked just from editing the specific page on which they were edit warring, which forces them to stop reverting and use other venues to resolve disputes.

If the administrator deems it possible to obtain the same project protection through the application of a partial block it can be used as an alternative measure to a full site block block.
Interesting would be a general guideline when that's the case. In German wikipedia there is such guideline: "Partial blocks can be used, when the behavior that would lead to a (full) block, is limited to certain pages and a productive activity according to the rules has been shown on other pages and is still expected." (Sie kann dann angewendet werden, wenn sich das sperrwürdige Verhalten nur auf bestimmte Bereiche bezieht und eine bedeutsame regelkonforme Mitarbeit in anderen Bereichen vorhanden war und weiterhin erwartet werden kann.) --Der-Wir-Ing ("DWI") talk 23:28, 12 December 2019 (UTC)Reply
