Remove "reviewer" user group from ruwiki (Flagged Revs)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Due to T277883 and unsuccessful experiment on 2-3 tiers reviewing in ruwiki in last 6 years, ruwiki has decided to remove reviewing feature and ability to set 2-3 levels of quality on Flagged Revs. Please, remove a user group "reviewer" from ruwiki (users in this group can set 2-3 levels of quality on Flagged Revs). An user group "editor" still exists (users in this group can set 0-1 levels of quality on FlaggedRevs).

Event Timeline

This week is no-deploy week. I can take a look at it next week.

Change 700854 had a related patch set uploaded (by Ladsgroup; author: Ladsgroup):

[operations/mediawiki-config@master] flaggedrevs: Reduce levels for ruwiki to 1

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/700854

It should be done in multiple deployments and I don't have the time to do if fully. The first part is straightforward.

@Ladsgroup when this process will be continued?

The week before was dc switchover and was messy in so many different ways, next week is wmf holiday and again a total shutdown of deployments. I can do basic parts the week after but again, I'm doing this in my volunteer capacity, be patient.

OK, I thought it's very easy, just removing the usergroup definiton from the config file, less than 1 minute of work.

Nothing with flaggedrevs is easy :(

@MBH if the current config makes sense, let me know and we can close this.

I thought user group "reviewer" was defined somewhere in configuration file and can be removed by deletion of this definition. But you know FlaggedRevs much better than me, so do what you see fit.

That's exactly what I did ;) I mean the config is deployed now, does everything as expected, etc.

I mean, I thought this patch will remove some lines, not add them :)

Yes, I don't see reviewer now on usergroup list: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Listusers

Ladsgroup claimed this task.

aha, that's the default, nine other wikis have done the same (including ruwikinews).

I call this done now.
