Well the current version of the block text is just too simple and needs to be changed.2602:304:AF53:3E99:3019:3E60:9D00:BF36 01:36, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
- ...needs to be changed why exactly?
- In my view, the ONLY change worth making, since we don't have anywhere near the issues en.WP has for instance, would be to delete the current version and let the "default" from mw-messages take its place. Its almost the same as what you propose here from what I can tell anyway. -- 03:48, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
- Well I deleted what we had just to see what the default was, and sure enough, almost the same thing came up on its own. An additional up-side to leaving it this way is that MediaWiki:Autoblockedtext is also now provided along with this default. Feel free to revert however - sorry, but its the only way to be sure to see what we get (not what the entire code is). -- George Orwell III (talk) 03:59, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
Update the block text for the last time
Hi there admins ,this is the final time we are going to replace the Mediawiki:Blockedtext if this plan fails, then we'll keep the current message. I want it to be done By 14:55 16 February 2014 using this message:
You are currently unable to edit Wikisource.
You are still able to view pages, but you are not currently able to edit, move, or create them.
What does this mean?
What is a block?
A block is a measure used to protect Wikisource from possible improper use or modification in breach of editorial policies. Blocks can apply to a user account, an IP address, or a range of IP addresses that is deemed responsible for or related to problematic activity. You may be an innocent victim of collateral damage, whereby a block of some other activity has accidentally caused your account to be inaccessible. The reason for your block may be found above.
Most common causes
What do I do now?
You have many routes to appeal the block or its duration. Firstly, if you are a registered user and have a valid e-mail address confirmed, you can contact $1 via e-mail (via that link, or by clicking on the "E-mail this user" link to the left of their userpage). This feature can be removed if abused. You should include the following information about your block in all such communication: Username: $7, IP address: $3, Block ID: $5.
Alternatively, you may appeal the block by requesting that another administrator review the block. To do so, add
If $7 is not blocked, your IP address ($3) or range may have been blocked. Please check your user talk page.. If this is the case, please copy and paste the following text to the bottom of
Please note: While this block may be upsetting or unexpected, abuse of appeal processes, repeatedly using the unblock template when denied, personal attacks, or impolite conduct may lead to the removal of your ability to edit your talk page.

- No need to wait until February. Not done Thanks for your thoughts and copying over another's block messge. We really don't need an epistle. Unlike enWP, we rarely block people or for long periods, and when we do, it is usually outright vandalism. Most blocks people will encounter will be global blocks put in place by stewards, and that is a different message, and different controls. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:46, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
