Creating an owner-only consumer should not require an autoconfirmed account
Closed, ResolvedPublic


While new users won't need bot access immediately, there are two ways in which the autoconfirmed requirement can bite established users as well:

  • if they never visited meta (e.g. an enwiki-only botmaster wants to switch to OAuth authentication)
  • if they want to use a separate bot account

There isn't any point in trying to limit owner-only accounts (not after T142276 gets fixed, at least) so maybe just drop the mwoauthproposeconsumer requirement for owner-only?
