Grant checkuser rights to DannyS712 on testwiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Danny has recently received NDA access (T256367). It would be immensely helpful for our ongoing work on Checkuser if Danny was allowed to access checkuser on testwiki to run tests with his own test accounts.

Tagging @JanWMF for approval and SRE for granting rights.

@Trust and safety - if this is approved, can you please let me know (either here or via email) the specific guidelines that would apply to my use? @Niharika has discussed it a bit over IRC, but I'd prefer to know the official rules regarding what I can and cannot do.

This is not within SRE scope. T&S should either grant themselves, or post a request at the steward request page.

Jan has approved the request and I’ve applied Checkuser rights on testwiki to Danny’s account through 18 November 2021. We can revisit and extend it by default if necessary after that. @DannyS712, You can use it for all work related to Checkuser and other things you are working on in collaboration with or related to AHT and admin topics. Thanks.

@Nahid just so that I understand correctly

  • Can I use checkuser/investigate on, eg, ltas and spambots with accounts on testwiki?
  • Can I use the investigate block function on such accounts
  • what do you mean by "admin topics"?

Hey Danny, You can use the tool and its functions for development purposes but not for regular LTA/anti-spam fighting. ‘Admin topics’ is both maintenance-related administrative tasks but also how the CU extension interacts with CU user rights in case you see opportunities for technical improvements to make folks' lives easier.
