Extension talk:BlockBatch

About this board

The next extension will be RevertBatch. It will have much the same UI as this one, except that it will also let you revert a bunch of people, in two steps:

  1. Revert all page moves of those users. Go through the page move log, and for each page, move it to the location it was at before any users on that list moved it. Thus, it will be necessary to start with the most recent page moves and work backward. If the user rights have been properly locked down, e.g. with page moves throttled to, say, a few per day for non-autonconfirmed users, then page move vandalism shouldn't be a big deal.
  2. Revert all edits of those users, back to the most recent edit by a user other than those users. (If there is no such user, delete the page, perhaps; although this could also be done by DeleteBatch. Usually if there's been page move vandalism, there will be new, undesirable redirects.)
  3. Delete all the new file versions added by these users, which in most cases will be goatse or the like. (talkcontribs)

I got the "Block batch of users" link in the Special page, but when i clicked on it, i got:

Summary by Bttfvgo

There should be no extra spaces after usernames or IP addresses, otherwise they will be rendered as erroneous.

Hi! I am being told to enter an IP address or username, but when I do and enter the block settings I am told "There are problems with some of your input." ̶ "Invalid IP address"... But I am not trying to enter an IP addresses, only usernames. I don't understand!

Nevermind! I figured it out! My entries all have two extra, empty spaces after them. I deleted all of the extra spaces and then it worked great! This will help me tremendously!
