I would like to propose to allow experienced users to claim their mentees, in additional to the random thing that's currently working. Questions from users that are participating in wiki-courses actually happened (at least https://cs.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Diskuse_s_wikipedistou:Martin_Urbanec&diff=17481782&oldid=17479745), and in this particular case, the instructor/wiki ambassador for that project actually was upset that their course participant is asking somebody else. Yes, the answer should be more-or-less the same anyway, but that's not on topic here.
Draft business rules
This feature should at least:
- Warn experienced users if they are going to change mentor for the second/third time.
- Warm mentors that they have changed mentor
- Log changes to prevent abuse (hiding the log to admins is fine if necessary due to Privacy)
@MMiller_WMF, could this be priorized, please? I believe I mentioned this on our meetings. I consider this quite important, and since what I was worrying about has actually happened, I think we should really consider to do this as a major improvement for cs.wikipedia.
