Limit file uploads on Ladino Wikipedia to administrators (and bureaucrats?)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Please see discussion on Meta here, and community notification at Ladino Wikipedia here. To summarize the results: (a) there were no comments whatsoever on this community notification in over two weeks, and (b) no one who is not an administrator has uploaded a media file to ladwiki locally in over eight years. So putting all that together, I conclude that the community does not object to our formally limiting media file uploads to administrators only, and I would request that change through phabricator. (With respect to bureaucrats, all current sysops are also 'crats. I leave the question of whether this right should also remain in the 'crat toolbox as a technical question for you to decide; I'm ok either way on that.)
