Hello all,

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

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:


Editing one or more specific page(s)

Editing all pages within one or more namespace(s)

Uploading files

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
