Protecting LiquidThreads talk pages
Open, MediumPublic


Looks like there isn't a way to protect (or semiprotect) completely a talk page with LiquidThreads, e.g. an archived talk: even if you use [edit=sysop] [move=sysop] [newthread=sysop] [reply=sysop] [cascading] , users will be able to edit existing replies (but not to summarize threads, if my test was correct).
I haven't tried all the other possibile actions, but I think that at least cascading protection (or something similar) should block them all.

Otherwise, it's impossible to protect pages from vandalism and even from good faith edits; while currently, if you archive a page, you put the archive in your watchlist and if someone edits it you will see it immediately; with threads it isn't so easy, although I don't remember if watchlisting a talk page will watchlist every included thread).

This is a big, big conversation, and one that I think requires more consideration than a simple bug can give it. I'm going to take this bug (to remove it from Andrew's plate) and we'll hopefully begin a dialog on a wiki page.

I believe there's one there already (on the redesign talk page) - we can continue it further.

Cancel LiquidThreads talk pages.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
