Block Notification

We had suggested the idea that all blocks done by Blockers would be posted somewhere specific. Since nothing formal has been set up as yet, I'm posting here for now.

I've just blocked User: for 3 hours for intimidating behaviour on Oblivion talk:The Necromancer's Amulet and for being an open proxy. Robin Hoodtalk 05:38, 21 August 2010 (UTC)

The block is not immediately obvious when looking at the user's talk page on Wikipedia, but it can be seen here: [1]. Robin Hoodtalk 05:41, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Robin Hood. That's the info I was looking for -- I'd checked the standard block log, but forgot about wikimedia's global blocks. --NepheleTalk 05:45, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
And another one. User: is also blocked for 3 hours per Wikipedia. Robin Hoodtalk 09:41, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Update: It seems the user is IP-hopping. It may be beneficial to semi-protect the page rather than trying to keep up with blocks. Robin Hoodtalk 09:43, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
I've created this subpage to keep track of blocks not made by admins. rpeh •TCE 11:00, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
That works for me. Can I suggest that an admin permanently semi-protect it to minimize the chance of vandalism to that page? Robin Hoodtalk 16:58, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
I blanked the list once Krusty had made the blocks permanent. Do we want to do it like that or should it always be an admin who clears the list? rpeh •TCE 17:58, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm fine either way, though if we're going to leave it in place, I'd suggest we add new entries at the top rather than at the bottom, just for easier administration (no pun intended). Robin Hoodtalk 18:48, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
While we're on the topic (in a very broad sense, at least), did we want permanent Blocker requests to be archived like Admin and Patroller discussions are? Robin Hoodtalk 18:55, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
I don't think that's necessary, but it wouldn't bother me if people wanted a permanent record. rpeh •TCE 19:03, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
