locks[edit]

just a note on locks. When a lock happens, it prevents logging in', anywhere, even on meta. MechQuester (talk) 19:10, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

@MechQuester: Thanks for explaining that. I have never been clear what the difference is between a lock and a block. JamesBWatson (talk) 21:10, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
You probably are thinking of Global blocks. It technically can only to IP addresses and not users, at least what Global blocks says. In that case, the (hard) block will prevent editing everywhere except meta, where a local block has to be in place. A person can still log in but couldn't do anything except on meta. Then it would require contacting a steward. I hope that clears it up. MechQuester (talk) 23:40, 16 December 2016 (UTC)
