English Wikipedia request to remove 'obsolete-tag' from $wgSignatureAllowedLintErrors
Closed, DuplicatePublic


In this December 2023 RFC, the English Wikipedia chose to disallow obsolete tags in newly saved signatures.

In task T140606, matmarex wrote "I updated the patch to include a config variable $wgSignatureAllowedLintErrors. It defaults to [ 'obsolete-tag' ] (which allows <font> tags etc.), and you can file a task to change this config to an empty array [] whenever the community of English Wikipedia (or any other wiki) agrees to that."

This task is requesting implementation of the RFC's consensus via removal of 'obsolete-tag' from $wgSignatureAllowedLintErrors on the English Wikipedia.
