Change upload rights at Russian Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Community of Russian Wikipedia thinks that autoconfirmed users should not have upload rights, and criterias for users who can upload files should be more stronger.

  • Remove "upload" and "reupload" rights from autoconfirmed users;
  • Add right to add uploaders group for sysops, not only stuards;
  • Create new group with upload rights (or modify uploaders group) so that it includes the users who registered 14 days ago AND have 20 edits

It is no answer here during 2 weeks, and we find other way to stop invalid uploads and want to try it first. If we'll not have good result, we'll back to this query. wrote:

For this moment we have no result and ask for this changes again.

I have added the 'uploader' group which as upload rights. Presently sysops can add and remove users from the group. The upload right has been removed from autoconfirmed users.

I also added in auto-promotion to the uploader group for anyone registered over 14 days with 20 edits as requested.
