Present problems to edit filter managers and patrollers on wikis where lot many filters are in use
- On single topic/subject/issue there can be multiple filters for various reasons created as and when required and thus they are not in single order to track or compare or make changes in them.
For example in English Wikipedia if one has to search all filters that handle abusive language one has to go from one page to next page searching visually.SO this process can miss the fact that a filter is already available and just not tweaking and he may end up working on a different filter or creating a new filter effectively causing a duplication of activity.
Requested Solution may be
- Search titles & Filter ID no: Add filter IDs not in search and save search or
- assign topic/group/issue name to existing filters
- The same thing is about Special:AbuseLog either it gives filter log of only single filters or all filters together Here in this case solution seems simple Special:AbuseLog already has a search field Filter ID: This search field should accept filters ids with commas and should have a capacity to save search
*This bug is created by splitted point no 2 from T49494: Option to view public filter and its logs only for abuse filter management. Again in this bug their are 2 points please guide if I do need to split it again
