What does parameter $3 indicate in these messages? Is this a username?

The documentation for both messages say that $3 is "the affected page":

I've read the documentation, but yet I did not understand what $3 indicates. What does “the affected page” mean in this case?

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Users.


You can view and copy the source of this page.

I don't understand the word “page”. Since when PAGES are blocked? Shouldn't it be "the affected USER" instead?

@MarcoAurelio: Since you're a steward, do you have a way to try touching both logs (or, have you did some actions in the past that touch both?), so that we could know which "page" the $3 points?

I think $3 means the IP or CIDR being locally whitelisted or de-whitelisted.

I did some testing at <https://es.wikibooks.org/wiki/Especial:Registro/gblblock>. Indeed $3 seems to be User:<blockedIP/blockedrange> being whitelisted. I'll update the docs.

The problem comes from Template:Logentry which has hardcoded settings. It's not something we can change from gerrit unless we rewrite the entire message. Maybe we can amend the template so it is more customizable. Ping @Nemo bis and Nikerabbit:.
