request for full change[edit source]


can someone change the blocked text like this?

You are currently unable to edit Wikiversity.

You are not blocked from reading pages, only from changing or creating them.

Editing from $7 has been blocked (disabled) by $1 for the following reason(s):


This block has been set to expire on: $6.

Even if blocked, you will usually still be able to edit your user talk page and email other editors and administrators.

Information for blocked users[edit source]

You can email $4 or another administrator (list) to contest the block. You cannot use the email this user feature unless a valid email address is specified in your account preferences, has been confirmed, and you are not disallowed from using it while blocked.

Your current IP address is $3 and the block ID is #$5. Please include this in any queries. Blocked users can edit their own user talk page, unless specifically disallowed from doing so (if you are not logged in as a registered user, this will be the talk page for your IP address). You can add {{unblock|your reason for requesting an unblock here}} to your user talk page to request unblocking.

If the block reason seems unrelated to you, it is possible you were affected by a software feature known as the autoblock. In that case, contact an administrator and they will do their best to remove the autoblock. Please note that, for technical reasons, removing the autoblock is not always possible. In such cases, you may need to wait 24 hours for the autoblock to expire.

Comment[edit source]

This message includes parameters not found in the standard message. I do not know if these parameters will properly function here. I am not a custodian and cannot test this message. However, the request is proper and may remain here until reviewed and accepted or rejected. --Abd (discusscontribs) 16:21, 29 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]

  • The suggested message does not appear to be bad, but I prefer the detailed instructions for blocked users to be on a separate page, as is done with the Wikipedia block message, w:MediaWiki:Blockedtext. There would be no harm in adding the additional display parameters, such as block expiration. Whether those parameters all function on wikiversity is obscure to me. --Abd (discusscontribs) 16:34, 29 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]
    • The one on WP is probably simpler (hadn't looked at this interface on either project in a long time). Does WV have a page with instructions for the blocked user somewhere? --SB_Johnny talk 23:32, 29 November 2013 (UTC)[reply]
      • Note: OP is a cross-wiki long term abuser. Feel free to discuss this though. --Glaisher (discusscontribs) 07:00, 3 December 2013 (UTC)[reply]
I removed the control words that were placed here.
I agree with SBJ, we need a page that will help blocked users.
I wrote an essay/guideline inspired by this. Wikiversity:Blocking policy/Guidance if blocked is a start (it is not complete). This could also be an essay page within Wiki studies, currently called Wiki science except most of it isn't Science. This is Art. A WV space page should be linked from the block message, and it can then be maintained by ordinary users, and link to resources like the essay. --Abd (discusscontribs) 21:21, 9 March 2015 (UTC)[reply]
  • Edit under protection not done. If a registered editor wants to renew this, that can be done. I no-wiki'd the request template. --Abd (discusscontribs) 18:09, 3 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
