Redban closure[edit]

Hello HandThat Feeds. About this closure. The entry in the block log doesn't say he is a sock. Do you have another source for this information? I don't object to the block, but am just trying to ensure that all the closure information is correct. The actual block was done by User:Postdlf and his reason was 'Disruptive editing', with a link to the ANI. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 14:11, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

The ANI discussion points out that Redban edited around his/her block by editing as an IP, then as User:Percentagesign. The original block was for disruption, it was then extended after the socking by User:Postdlf. Postdlf didn't change their reason for the block, but it seems to me that the indef was for the socking. If you'd like, I can change the Archive wording. — The Hand That Feeds You:Bite 14:39, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
If you just change your closure to 'Indef by User:Postdlf for disruptive editing' that would make the different messages consistent. Unclear whether placing sock tags is worth the trouble, though anyone could do so. EdJohnston (talk) 15:39, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
I went ahead and updated it to "'Redban blocked by Postdlf for disruption, extended to indef after socking around the block.'" Hopefully that's clear enough. — The Hand That Feeds You:Bite 17:00, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Sounds good. Thanks for being willing to reconsider. EdJohnston (talk) 17:24, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
