MessageBlock adds a checkbox in the block special page that allows you to send a message with the block reason and duration to the blocked user's talk page directly from the block page. Feel free to post translations on the talk page.

Installation

Add this JavaScript on your wiki:

Global Personal Site-wide
w:Special:Mypage/global.js Special:Mypage/common.js MediaWiki:Common.js
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:MessageBlock/code.js'
    ]
});
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
importScriptPage('AjaxRC/code.js','dev');
 
importScript('MediaWiki:localScript.js');
 
importArticle({
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
});
 
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
 
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:AjaxRC/code.js',
        'MediaWiki:localScript.js',
        'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js',
        'u:wikiname:page1.js',
        'u:wikiname:page2.js'
    ]
});
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.


Message and others features

To add the title and the text of this new message, just add this before the import statements :

var MessageBlock = {
  title : 'Block',
  message : 'You have been blocked.'
};

Then, just change title by the title of the message and message by the text you want.

Include duration and block reason

If you want to include either the duration or the reason of the block, type in the message $1 (for the reason) and/or $2 (for the duration). For example, your message can be : "You have been blocked for $2 because you have $1".

Auto-check the checkbox

By default, the checkbox isn't checked and have to be checked manually. If you want to check it by default, just put this before import statements :

var MessageBlock = {
  title : 'Block',
  message : 'You have been blocked for $2 because you have $1',
  autocheck : true
};

Example of code

var MessageBlock = {
  title : 'Blocage',
  message : 'Vous avez été bloqué pour $2 car vous avez : "$1"',
  autocheck : true
};
importArticles({
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        'u:dev:MessageBlock/code.js'
    ]
});
