New 'patroller' user group for Meta-Wiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This is, for now, a placeholder for what it is being discussed and supported at this RfC.

A new 'patroller' usergroup seems to be being approved by the community, with the following rights attached to it:

  • Have one's own edits automatically marked as patrolled (autopatrol)
  • Mark others' edits as patrolled (patrol)
  • View recent changes patrol marks (patrolmarks)
  • Quickly rollback the edits of the last user who edited a particular page (rollback)

I guess we'd like to discuss granting and removal requirements before this going live, but there's agreement that this permission be assigned and removed by administrators.

I'll work on this task.

Consensus about the creation is achieved and only minor policy points are still pending discussion so I'll go ahead and patch this, although I won't schedule it for deployment until the whole thing is closed.
