on the wikimedia-l mailing list, you can check it below.

Thanks

Hello all,

The Wikimedia Foundation Anti-Harassment Tools team is continuing to talk
with the Wikimedia community about adding a partial blocks function to
Special:Block.1

No functionality will change for sitewide blocks. All existing blocks will
remain in place and the ability to block users from the entire wiki will
remain as-is.

In addition to sitewide blocks, a partial block would be the ability to
block a user from:

1.

Editing one or more specific page(s)
2.

Editing all pages within one or more namespace(s)
3.

Uploading files
4.

Emailing other users


Alex Hollender, a User Experience designer at Wikimedia Foundation, has a
second set of wireframe designs of Special:Block with partial block
included. You can take a look at the wireframes and leave us your feedback
on Meta.2

Please spread the word and forward this email to others (especially
administrators) who might be interested in helping re-design
Special:Block's layout. In particular, feedback is needed about the best
ways to create a log that will work well with the existing administrator
workflows.
