Please create the Edit filter helper user group on en.wp
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Following a month-long RFC at the edit filter noticeboard (permalink) there is consensus to create the "edit filter helper" usergroup on the English Wikipedia.

Membership of the group should be grantable and revokable by administrators and confer the following rights:

  • abusefilter-view-private
  • spamblacklistlog

Full details are at WP:EFH.

Change 377473 had a related patch set uploaded (by MarcoAurelio; owner: MarcoAurelio):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] New 'abusefilter-helper' configuration for en.wikipedia

You'll need to create the following local messages:

  • MediaWiki:Group-abusefilter-helper: Edit filter helpers
  • MediaWiki:Group-abusefilter-helper-member: {{GENDER:$1|edit filter helper}}
  • MediaWiki:Grouppage-abusefilter-helper: {{ns:project}}:Edit filter helpers

I'll try to have the new group live on Monday for the EU SWAT window.

Can these be created before the group exists or is it best to wait?

These need to be created pre-patch.

Creating the messages is not a blocking task, however I've already made the localizations so it is done anyway.

Messages can be created at any time indeed. Thanks for taking care of that already. I'll try to get this done on Monday EU SWAT window.
