FlaggedRevs sometimes not autopromoting users when it should (on pl.wikipedia)
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

We've noticed that FlaggedRevs on pl.wikipedia sometimes doesn't autopromote users which appear to be eligible for it.

Looking through the rules available at [1], this user[2] appears eligible for autopromotion (I manually checked, he fulfills all listed conditions) - however, he still wasn't promoted to the 'reviewer' status[3].

This is somewhat rare, but it did happen at least a few times (sorry, but currently I don't have any more examples at hand). I think in most cases the user was granted the right manually, by an administrator passing by.

(I didn't know whether to report this under Extensions/Flaggedrevs or under Wikimedia; I eventually chose the former.)

Whatever caused this issue back in 2012 when I filed this, it's probably not relevant now.

The currently ongoing issue affecting pl.wp and several other sites is tracked in T237191: FlaggedRevs: Automatic user promotion stopped working on some wikis on June 24, 2019.
