A symbolic block (often abbreviated as symblock) is a measure used bywhen she is too lazy to contact an admin to have someone blocked. This technique consists of her modifying the user's common.js file to prevent them from accessing the website, using code similar to that shown below:
alert("You have been symbolically blocked. Love, JJPMaster");
document.location.href = 'about:blank';
This displays a message, blanks the page in case the user is on mobile, and closes the tab.
Owing to the limits imposed on third-party editors, this measure only works if done by an admin or an interface admin. Owing to the fact that admins have normal blocks, and JJPMaster is the only interface admin of Uncyclopedia, a symbolic block is only useful for her.
this symbolic block is better than the real deal
with it, you cant do ANYTHING
because it closes the page
[a symbolic block] displays a message
then closes the tab entirely
it's a better block than the real thing
[the problem is] that symblock is stupid
Needs more symbols.
- ARandomPage used a version of the symbolic block that doesn't actually block people on themself. Page calls this glorified alert the "symbolic brick".
- Not counting every time was symblocked for the purpose of testing the feature.
