Description

Hi. I request some changes in the AbuseFilter configuration of the Spanish Wikipedia (eswiki)

See the vote: https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Votaciones/2021/Sobre_la_activación_del_bloqueo_automático_del_filtro_de_ediciones_como_medida_de_emergencia

Allow automatic blocks ($wgAbuseFilterActions['block'] = true;)
Default expiry for automatic blocks($wgAbuseFilterBlockDuration = '24 hours'; and $wgAbuseFilterAnonBlockDuration = '24 hours';)
Allow the abusefilter group to revert blocks ($wgGroupPermissions['abusefilter']['abusefilter-revert'] = true;)
Change emergency thottling percentage to 10% ($wgAbuseFilterEmergencyDisableThreshold = 0.1;)
Change emergency thottling count to 3 ($wgAbuseFilterEmergencyDisableCount = 3;)

Yes, I also don't know if the WMF allows config changes made by globally banned users.

Zabe moved this task from Backlog to To deploy on the User-Zabe board.
