Add group permissions to control who can create threads, edit messages, etc
Open, LowestPublicFeature


It currently has those permissions: lqt-split, lqt-merge and lqt-react.

Some users would like more fine-grained access control (see URL). lqt-react apparently controls whether a user is allowed to post a reply to another thread. I guess how useful is that right if there's no access control for creating threads, or even edit your own/other user's messages. Apparently, $wgNamespaceProtection does not work as expected when it comes to the Thread and Summary namespaces.

I think we should at least add those specific rights for:

  • creating threads
  • editing own message (message created by the user)
  • editing message created by other user
  • create/edit thread summary

The "editing *" right may affect also the ability to change a thread subject.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
