I've been wondering what's the difference between these two blocks: infinite and indefinite. Any help would be great. :) -- Bermuda 17:43, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

No difference in blocking. In definitions, yes, infinite means forever indefinite is un sure of when it is finished. --TheBen10Mazter (T-B-C) 17:54, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
There would be no reason to put both if they had no differences. Of course, if Wikia just put in both just for fun or any of that sort. -- Bermuda 18:00, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
No, some people might prefer infinite, some, indefinite. It's more organized with both. --TheBen10Mazter (T-B-C) 18:03, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
Until I get another answer from another user, I can't be sure about this. -- Bermuda 18:06, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
There is no difference -- RandomTime 18:09, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

If two people agree, well I guess there's nothing to it. Unless someone wants to break it. -- Bermuda 18:13, October 9, 2011 (UTC)

There is no difference, both block times last forever or until you unblock.--GodPray  18:58,10/9/2011 
The use of different terms implies different things - if you select "indefinite", it indicates you are going to unblock them at some point in the future, and if you select "infinite", it implies you are not going to. However, it is possible to reverse an infinite block so there is no technical difference. But I guess that is the reason for the two different terms--Category:Acer4666 19:51, October 9, 2011 (UTC)
