Hey Naleksuh,

I see that you partially blocked yourself for testing purposes for a period of two hours, and you have the ability to unblock yourself before that so there's nothing really to do, but what I had a question about—whenever you return—is where it says, "from specified non-editing actions with an expiration time of 2 hours (autoblock disabled)," I can't figure out what those non-editing actions are. Did you just prohibit yourself from editing your own user talk page for the prescribed period? If so, then I think I've understood the log entries correctly.

Also, it's probably not a big deal since the block was a test block you made on yourself, but just a heads up with regard to revision deletion, we try for transparency here. I made the mistake of test blocking a consul for a couple minutes, so hid my block log entry from the consul's block log, but they said not to worry about it and that it's better to keep log actions unhidden. So not sure if you maybe want, perhaps as a rest of undoing the revision deletion, to unhide the "username hidden" and "edit summary hidden" actions? Up to you, though, as I say, it was a test block on yourself and you're not hiding the log action itself.

Cheers,

@Dmehus: Yeah, I didn't know that text was in the interface either. The way this works is by placing a partial block that does nothing - i.e. no actions are set to be blocked, not even editing. As for why I revision deleted, was just somewhat dicking around, but I could see how that would be confusing as it could be confused with a real block. I will undelete that revision now Naleksuh (talk) 21:40, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
@Naleksuh: So basically, you show as being partially blocked, but because nothing was selected, all you got out out of it was a block log entry? Interesting. Anyway, revision deletion is a powerful tool. We have Revision Deletion Test where you can create revisions, hide them, and the like. No need to undo the revision deletions on that page, since it's specially earmarked for that purpose (though if revision deleting a log entry for a revision deletion, I'd still undo that). Let me know if you'd like to play around as a bureaucrat and I'll grant that. Dmehus (talk) 21:47, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Ten edits are required for bureaucrat, but it would be interesting for sure once I have met them. The idea of a public test wiki instead of each user creating their own is chaotic as hell for sure, but also part of fun and allows users to help (for whatever reason, dicking around here is a lot more fun than on localhost). Hope to learn policies, interact with the community, help others, and possibly become consul one day! Naleksuh (talk) 22:36, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
@Naleksuh: You're half way there on Public Test Wiki in terms of edits, but you have been an administrator for at least 24 hours. More importantly, though, you're fairly active on Meta and you have your own wiki, so you are trustworthy. Dmehus (talk) 22:51, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
 Done. If you are interested in helping out on Public Test Wiki and aren't sure if it's something that you should change, I'd recommend running it by any consul to see if there's support for the idea. Now that you are a bureaucrat, you can assist at RfP by actioning permissions' requests. Dmehus (talk) 22:56, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
