Mustelid did a thing[edit]

viz. and to wit, this thing. And about time, too. I mean, cheers! Alec Sanderson (talk) 20:53, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

Christopher removing some options[edit]

I actually really liked these options. Regardless of not understanding the references, they're funny.—チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 16:02, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

I've put it back for now. Christopher (talk) 16:11, 12 June 2017 (UTC)

Random block reasons[edit]

I scrapped RationalWiki:Random Block Reasons; it's not been used since 2010. Here are its reasons:

Infant games
Race, color, creed, sexual orientation, usually all of the above.
Sock of AmesG
Refused to lie down on the casting couch
You have been selected for a random block, nothing personal.
Not enough goat
Too much goat
This amount of goat is juuuuuuuust right!
Denmark-related offences
Offences against Lord Jerboa
[[Conservapedia:Sysops/Conservative|Ken]]-like pattern of editing
Congratulations! You have won a free block!

Various users had CustomBlockReasons:

firing turbobanners
the NSA made me do it
Preemptive strike
Doing a Schlafly
the NRA made me do it
the devil would have made me do it, but he doesn't exist. . .
don't poke the cheetah-wolf
Sounding too much like Lumenos
Starkid Potter! Moonshoes Potter!
what is this i dont even
Being a toffee
Vandal, Troll, Sock of Icewedge!
Helpless invertebrate
Largely defensive weapon of wasting your time to unblock yourself
Waiting for Bohdan, or somebody like him...
I am the Electrician!
11 prior blocks, a silly pattern of editing, lack of use of a real first name, and an overall distraction from learning here
Lack of Machismo
Mei is useful
Vote for Mei
Suspected spambot. Prove us wrong.

Any worth keeping? 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 14:46, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

I would scrap the Harry Potter, Mei, and Conservapedia ones and keep the rest.-DiamondDisc1|1csiDdnomaiD (talk) 04:23, 11 July 2017 (UTC)

Suggested joke reason[edit]

I saw Spriggina use this one: "This is an ENGLISH website, you ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT". Can we add this one?—チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 20:01, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

New block reason needed[edit]

Please add "You're clueless". — pythoncoder  (talk | contribs) 01:35, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Added. — Dysk (contribs) 01:56, 15 February 2019 (UTC)

Custom Block Reasons[edit]

How do I get some? RoninMacbeth (talk) 18:29, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Edit the page? If you want to spare the list from getting too large, you can take off my homeopathic ban one. It's had a good life. Years. Longer than most anti-vax kids get. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:37, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Sorry, I meant personal custom block reasons. Most people aren't going to get Kaiserreich block reasons. RoninMacbeth (talk) 18:40, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Seems like if we were using the most recent version of media-wiki there might be a hacky work-around in creating your own interface language pack that's a copy with only the ibanreasons-dropdown value changed from the en-us version, but barring something really extreme, there's no user-specific overrides. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:51, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
If you want more custom reasons, I will just add them near the bottom of the list, where most people will probably never see them. The list cant really get too big easily. — Dysk (contribs) 19:01, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
OK, how about these:
  1. Purging Syndicalists
  2. Rooting out Reactionaries
  3. Supporter of Filthy Phil
  4. Insulted Blessed Karl
  6. Reclaiming the Birthright
  7. Breaking the Chains
  8. Maintaining the Balance
  9. Say no to Pelley
If any of you got any of those, then I'm a very happy person. RoninMacbeth (talk) 19:07, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

What happened to the "In order to intimidate and harass" joke block reason?[edit]

I loved that one :( --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my experiments 02:35, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Also, add "Sock of Trump's head of propaganda" and "Sounding too much like Ken" as semi-serious block reasons for use on CP troll socks. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my experiments 02:41, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
