Who can block a user?
To block another user, you must have administrator privileges.
Steps to take
Look in the history section of an article that the to-be-blocked user edited to find a line that looks like this, and click on the word block:
Once you have clicked on the word "block", you'll be taken to a page that looks like this:
Pull down the menu by the word "expiry" and choose the amount of time you wish this user to be blocked.
Pull down the menu by the word "reason" and choose the option that describes the reason that describes why you are blocking this user.
Check the box that says "prevent account creation". Do not check any other boxes.
Finally, click on the bar that says "block this user", and you're done.
