Why did you block this user? He seemed a valuable contributor to me. --Erik Krause 09:41, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Ok, I found the reason given on the hugin-ptx list. However, wiki blocks should be transparent to wiki users. --Erik Krause 10:18, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
The actual reason is given here. In a nutshell:
  • The user broke the instructions badly with no value added, causing errors, grievance and confusion to the general public.
  • The user demonstrated lack of understanding for what he is doing at a very basic level (adding an irrelevant switch to a simple mkdir command).
  • Past incidents with the same user following the same pattern show that he does not understand when the solutions to his problems are on his end. Without such understanding the problems can't be fixed and must be limited from influencing the project.
  • His constant finger-pointing in every direction but himself affects the project negatively.
  • And to answer your point: I don't know about all of his contributions. Maybe you can point me in a direction that shows value? Most of what I have seen from him is anything but valuable.

Now a question to you: how do I make a wiki block "transparent to wiki users"? Isn't the block log transparent enough? How is this entry any different from these? --Yuval 12:34, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
