Create new "archiviatore" flag on it.wikinews
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As per community request and documentated consensus, please create on it.wikinews anew flag named archiviatore (archiver in English), with the protect permission.
This flag will be assigned and revoked by bureaucrats.


Event Timeline

If you want to allow archivers to protect the pages for administrators only, they also need to have editprotected right. Users can't protect a page to lock themselves out of it :-).

In another words, without the group having editprotected, the protect interface will look like this:

@Urbanecm Ok, if there’s this clear technical need, add also this permission.

Do we have a similar usergroup elsewhere on the wikis to avoid creating Yet Another WikimediaMessage for Yet Another Custom Group? :-)

archiviatore translates to archiver. Maybe we could use the closer message we use for the ruwiki user group and let itwiki people customize it locally or at translatewiki?

@MarcoAurelio I was thinking about simply creating the relevant message only locally, but what you says has a point :-). Happy to change the patch if you think it's better to use "closer".

Change 612873 had a related patch set uploaded (by Urbanecm; owner: Urbanecm):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Create archiver group at itwikinews

@MarcoAurelio has a point, renamed the group to "closer" in the patch. @Ferdi2005 Your project will need to create MediaWiki:Group-closer and MediaWiki:Group-closer-member with whatever name you wish to give to the group.

This will get processed tomorrow.

Right created. I tested locally at itwikinews it works, by promoting my test account to closer and trying to protect my snadbox. Please reopen if you find any issues.
