Description:
Per the linked wikitech-l post ( http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2009-March/042370.html ), and strong consensus on an en-wiki 'poll' page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Flagged_protection_and_patrolled_revisions/Poll ) - please enable the 'flagged revisions' extension on the english wikipedia.

It'd be great to get this available as soon as possible :-)

cheers,

PM

The poll isn't even over yet. While it's unlikely to take a downwards turn at this stage, I still think waiting for it to end would be a good idea.

Yes, not only is the poll not over, but not all of the details of the trial have been worked out yet, it's being discussed at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Flagged_protection_and_patrolled_revisions/Implementation

Per linked discussion, the request won't be actioned until after the devs' conference anyway. So this request is premature but not fatally so.

Various technical and policy details need to be worked out before requesting implementation, this could take weeks, but should be completed before the end of April.

So marked as LATER. I had hopes to open the bug, well...

requested a test implementation at bug 18334 .

It wouldn't hurt if we want to implement it as smoothly as possible.

The aforementioned poll for a two-month trial implementation of [[Wikipedia:Flagged protection and patrolled revisions]] closed with 259 supports, 61 opposes and 4 neutrals, and we had enough time to discuss the configuration and policy details. So I reopen the bug.

The implementation details are at [[Wikipedia:Flagged protection and patrolled revisions/Implementation]] and there's a few remaining issues.

We had a small poll on autopromotion for reviewers, [[Wikipedia talk:Reviewers#Poll on autopromotion]], with a consensus against using an autopromotion.

Resolving this FIXED. The configuration was enabled.

Whether or not the community keeps it forever, changes the configuration, etc. is still up for debate.
