There is no discussion and consensus happened on the Flagged Revisions at Bengali Wikipedia. We discuss about the Rollbacker, Riviewer, Autopatroller, Flood flag.

So I am request to enable Rollbacker, Riviewer, Autopatroller, Flood flag features except Flagged Revision. Community need to raise the issue and discuss more about it.

FlaggedRevs enables reviewer flag. Only a reviewer or administrator can accept a pending change of an article which is protected under flagged revs.

Still there is lot of scope to disucss about the FlaggedRevs at Bengali Wikipedia. In the discussion we discuss about the impact on wikipedia users or contributor. But that feature will create the impact on the article as well. At the current situation whether Bengali Wikipedia need that feature or not is matter of serious discussion.

So I'd like to request to discuss it separately with the community first and then after the consensus enable it.

As a user uninvolved in the discussion, who was pointed to this by someone involved in it (and as someone who understands the language), I'd say there is consensus to implement Rollbacker, Autopatroller, Flood flag, and Reviewer in Bengali Wikipedia. If I consider Bellayet to be in opposition of the implementation of the reviewer flag, I see three others in agreement that it should be implemented. It was mentioned that the reviewer flag would help in maintenance of BLPs/articles on sensitive issues and for that matter, that reviewer flag is a part of FlaggedRevs is usually known and it is assumed that most when a certain flag is proposed to be implemented, people would review what the flag is about. If I were to assume that everyone did check what the Reviewer flag was, I would say that they knew enabling it would mean enabling FlaggedRevs. So I'd say there is consensus to implement this. Of course, I am not a part of the community and the community can think otherwise.

all the mentioned features should be added, because i do not think that by adding these extensions users or contributors will fall into a trouble. as i found that these extensions were created to maintain the Wikipedia in a efficient way and i wish by adding these features we will be able to do so.

I thought the discussion had already taken place and consensus was achieved? Please discuss these things on-wiki, not on Bugzilla.

Please enable all as said by Tanvir.

Thanks for the reminder. There is a solid base of consensus on the local community discussion about implementing these changes. Four supports against one oppose, which made 80% votes in favor (including 3 sysop supports). I belive, this is regarded as local community consensus for a small wiki like Bengali Wikipedia.

Please note: For FlaggedRevs, we would like to have the same settings like the current enwiki settings. See that here: http://en.wikipedia.org/?&oldid=420880541. Pending changes should not be applied automatically on any pages of any namespaces. It should only be applied on specific pages when administrators assign the settings/protections (like semi and full protection) there. If you have any question about settings, feel free to ask us. Thanks.

Tim said, he could enable flood flag for all wikis, but if I need to get it enabled only for Bengali Wikipedia, then I have to wait for you. :) And I did not ask for that in foundation-l, I don't think all Wikis need this flag. For example the recent changes of Commons and English Wikipedia are always flooding, and it's true for all big wikis too. They don't need a flood flag. But we do, since we have relatively low traffic there, and we don't want to get it flooded with some continuous and repetitive maintenance jobs.

For your information, flood flag is already enabled for individual wiki, such as Meta. There are few others AFAIH. Thanks!
