Why did the "block" link not follow onto this one? - anja talk 16:07, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Dunno, why not add it? — Eloc 16:08, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Just wanted to see if there was a specific reason first. I'd much rather have the block link than the block log one on this template, since this is mainly for "easy to solve" vandal issues. But someone might disagree with me and have written it somewhere I don't know of ;) - anja talk 16:09, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I think Poke removed it as most admins go to Contribs -> Block, instead of going to the Block straightaway. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 16:17, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes, there was a discussion on Template talk:User when thinking about a name for the template. Some people suggested to leave out the block links (block & block log) as the template could be used for normal linking. In this context all admins said that they always block via contribs -> block, and I think it should be always done that way (to ensure that an admin looked at the contributions firs) while I think that the block log might be interesting and important for reporting users. poke | talk 16:20, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
All admins, like three of 14 or so ;) I prefer to have the block link. Saying that "people shouldn't use it" and "you should always go contribs -> block anyway" just says that you don't trust our admins, honestly. If I prefer to open contribs and block in tabs with simple clicks, is that bad in any way? The block link provides an easy way to see if the user is already blocked or to see block history that's relevant to the contribs, while not having to open three pages (contribs -> block and also block log) - anja talk 16:26, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm not bothered either way. I sometimes do it as Anja does, other times I go to contribs :P --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ Talk 16:28, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
(edit conflict) To clearify: "All admins who participated on that talk" :P - And feel free to add it if you like to, or ask others what they think about it ;) Even if I prefer to have it not in there, also because it is not a clickable link for non-admins. poke | talk 16:30, 1 April 2008 (UTC)
Should we add a resolved / blocked parameter to add strikethrough to the text, change the icon or otherwise visually distinguish entries for blocked / resolved vandals from unblocked vandals? -- Gordon Ecker 09:10, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Poke created a version in which a parameter would change the unsolved No to a solved No. However, this was opposed by Aiiane, and a random icon that had no purpose was the compromise. The relevant discussion is on an admin noticeboard talk archive. --Pling! \ Brains12 \ Talk 14:52, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Just curious but what about making a green version of Tango-vandal-icon.png for the sysop to change it to once the vandal has been dealt with? Also Brains I went to that link you provided but didn't see anything to do with the icon in that section. --Kakarot Talk 23:52, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
"My comments remain the same as the last time this was brought up. Namely: the extra template frippery is both unnecessary and more work, not to mention encourages bad habits. I don't mind the actual layout changes. Go to Aiiane's Talk page (Aiiane - talk - contribs) 17:21, 24 March 2008 (UTC)" Aiiane's link there has more details. --Pling! \ Brains12 \ Talk 23:54, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
