Thanks in advance!

@Tulsi_Bhagat sorry, edit conflict - if you want to do this just reclaim it

No problem. You can proceed. Thank you!

@Guilhermebm can you confirm this understanding?

@DannyS712 I'll need to confirm the part about the user themselves being able to remove it. Since it's the normal behavior in other wikis, I think that's the way to go, but I'll ask. Thanks!

@DannyS712 yes, the community have confirmed the group can also be removed, but only removed by the user themselves. Thanks!

@DannyS712 sorry. The group can be added by sysops+crats, and removed by sysops, crats and the user themselves. Thanks!

Okay. Doing now

[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Add flood group to ptwiki

Looks redundant. Do you have bureaucrats which are not also sysops? It'd save a line of config.

And yet enwiki had an RfC ( that resulted in crats getting explicitly assigned rights that admins already have, and looking through the InitialiseSettings file I see, just at first glance, the following wikis explicitly (in addition to the defaults) allow both admins and crats to add:

  • arwiki - reviewer and abusefilter
  • enwikinews -flood
  • enwikivoyage -patroller
  • eswiki - rollbacker
  • enwikisource - autopatrolled
  • foundationwiki - inactive
  • frwiki - rollbacker

and so on. While I understand your point, I think that it should either be applied globally (eg on wikis where crats can add +sysop, they don't need rights specified explicitly that are already included in that group) or left to communities to decide.

@MarcoAurelio yes, we do have crats which are not sysops. Diego Queiroz is the only one, currently, but in the past there were more. Best regards!

@DannyS712 thanks for the patch!
