|Open||None||T212699 Allow more customization on abuse filter blocks|
|Resolved||DannyS712||T231756 Blockautopromote duration should be configurable per wiki|
Copying my comment from gerrit:
The duration of blocks can be configured both on a per-filter basis and via globals. But that's just because of historical reasons: previously, it was only configurable per-wiki, then we added per-filter customization, and the global setting became just the default value for the dropdown.
However, for other actions, I'd like to stick to a single config type: either per-wiki or per-filter. Having both is IMHO hard to maintain, and not much useful. Hence, I think we should discuss (on phab) the pros and cons of both approaches and determine which one we want for blockautopromote.
Given the nature of the 'blockautopromote' action, I think users won't need to customize the duration for every single filter. Thus, I tend to think that per-wiki would be the best choice. But I'm also fine with having both options, if there's a good reason to.
This has been marked for inclusion in Tech News, but I'm not intimately familiar with the AbuseFilter extension. Is "blockautopromote" barring users from being added to auto-promoted groups? (And also revoking existing group memberships?) It's not actually related to blocking the user, as in barring them from editing the wiki?
