"copyvio" actions should be publically logged on projects
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Follow up from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval/EranBot_3#Discussion

This task calls for making a project-specific action that causes a change, however there is no log of these actions as either "contributions" or "logged actions" - for transparency being able to identify the account responsible for changes should be visible to users. Adding an additional Special:Log for this may be the best way to solve this.

Thanks, @Xaosflux -- good idea. We'll get to this.

The log is present and all log functionality checked (filtering options, deletion/suppression of log entires) - @MMiller_WMF please take a quick look- https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:Log?type=pagetriage-copyvio&user=Etonkovidova&page=&wpdate=&tagfilter=:

I'm just noticing now that the word "possible" is used in this log, from @Etonkovidova's screenshot. The New Pages Feed UI uses "potential". I remember we discussed this -- is it easy/worth changing so that the log's language aligns with the UI?

@MMiller_WMF while that is the 'default' - it can be set per project at MediaWiki:Logentry-pagetriage-copyvio-insert
