Create a new variable for last edit time in AbuseFilter
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Hi, I propose have a question about the ability to create a new built-in variable for AbuseFilter used to retrieve page_last_edit_time (may be in seconds) similar to page_age variable, it's may be used to block bots from editing pages that have been recently edited (to minimize users-bots conflict), is that possible?

Hi @Mohnd_Kh, please ask questions how to do something or if something is possible in support channels instead.
Phabricator is for software bug reports and for feature requests. Thanks a lot! :)

Hi @Aklapper it's a proposal actually (request), but i didn't know if it's possible or not, so I was unsure about it, thank u

I forgot to answer -- yes, it would be possible. However, I would also expect such a variable to be slow.

@Mohnd_Kh: I see, thanks. In the future, please follow https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug in such cases, to avoid misunderstandings. Thanks :)
