The oversight group's internal name should be changed to suppress, following the change made for all non-Wikimedia wikis already. This will require assistance from the Wikimedia communities.
Actions required by Wikimedia project communities
Currently, the group's internal name is "oversight". Communities can customize how the group is referred to by MediaWiki by changing the following pages:
- MediaWiki:Grouppage-oversight (linking to a local project page, describing the role of the suppressors/oversighters)
- MediaWiki:Group-oversight (containing the name MediaWiki should call the group by)
- MediaWiki:Group-oversight-member (containing the name MediaWiki should call the group's members, at lists such as Special:Listusers)
The names can be changed in Translatewiki for all wikis in your language. For convenience, translation links are listed below.

Starting February 21, 2022 (tentative date), the group will be renamed in Wikimedia's configuration. Once that happens, new set of pages will be used (MediaWiki:Grouppage-suppress, MediaWiki:Group-suppress, MediaWiki:Group-suppress-member). Please ensure content of those pages is consistent with your community's standards.
Once the rename happens, it will be necessary to change links going to Special:Listusers/oversight to Special:Listusers/suppress.
