Happy First Edit Day[edit]

Inglorious response[edit]

I do not think your comments at User_talk: give you any credit. —DIV ( (talk) 03:28, 20 September 2018 (UTC))

I don't recall asking for any. --jpgordon𝄢𝄆 𝄐𝄇 16:10, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

This is a treat J. I like the phrase "pull the other one it's got bells on" as well. As a Yank I must have gotten that one from watching EastEnders back in the 80s and 90s. Cheers and enjoy your week. MarnetteD|Talk 18:37, 30 September 2018 (UTC)

Seeing double[edit]

Hi Jpgordon, the Special:BlockList tool like what you have cited here is unreliable when two or more blocks have been entered in the block log for the same user, IP address or range. It took me a moment to realize that it is presenting info from both of my blocks in the log (from this to this, it is using pieces from both blocks to present a bad entry). @JamesBWatson, Drmies, and Yamla: should be made aware.

See my response in a circumstance where it is two or more different admins. It will be clearer to see using that example and shows where this has been acknowledged as a bug and being tracked at the phabricator. Here it is.

Oooh. That's nasty. I'm glad it is being tracked by phabricator. Short of... guessing... is there a way for me to tell when someone's being hit by multiple blocks? I assume not, at least not practically. --Yamla (talk) 17:08, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
@Berean Hunter: Yes, I noticed this quite a while ago, but (strange though it may seem) I just thought of it as how the Block list worked, rather than as a bug. It gives the date from which the current period of blocking dates, and the most recently updated block log reason. Obviously likely to be misleading, so I suppose it must be regarded as a bug, but I just sort of accepted it. @Yamla: What do you mean by "being hit by multiple blocks"? If an IP address is simultaneously affected by blocks on more than one range (including the trivial case of a range of one) then the block list does show them all. The only other way that I can think of where more than one block can be effective at the same time is when a blocked account is also subject to an IP block, which of course is not visible to anyone except CheckUsers.

Right. I need more coffee these days. Thanks. Everything's clear now. :) --Yamla (talk) 19:59, 2 October 2018 (UTC)
