Description:
Request 3 changes in the configuration of plwikiquote:

  1. disable file uploads
  2. enable semiprotection (no, it's not up on *quote)
  3. enable the exclamation mart feature in RC (the one where one can mark valid

revisions)

All three were submitted to the community (small as it is) for approval and were
accepted.

Do you really think the semi-protection feature is a
good idea for pl.wikiquote? pl.Wikiquote is relatively
small, so I think you would rather profit from edits of
anonymous and fresh users, don't you?

I didn't say we want to use it often. We just figured it'd be nice to have the
ability to use it instead of a regular protection (which is used very seldom on
the project anyway). Might come in handy during times like parliament/president
elections (we had some trouble with vandals last year).

Sorry for my comment, I confused "semi-protection" with
the feature that hinders IPs and new users from creating
articles.

I support this request, of course! --- Best regards,

Is there a reference for these discussions?

(I've enabled the semi-protection along with some other wikis.)

Of course. Proposals for 1. and 3. were submitted to the Bar (our Village Pump
equivalent) at http://pl.wikiquote.org/wiki/WC:Bar#Adminowanie_na_cytatach
("Administration of the 'quotes"). I have also prepared a formal policy draft
for 1. at
http://pl.wikiquote.org/wiki/Wikicytaty:Zakaz_przesy%C5%82ania_plik%C3%B3w (this
is still marked as a proposal 'cause I'm still waiting for any input on the
actual wording of the text, deadline was set to Sat, Feb 4) and submitted it for
aproval in the Bar at http://pl.wikiquote.org/wiki/WC:Bar#Nowe_propozycje_zasad.
No opposition was voiced.

this request is quite old now - do you still want these changes?

lgarczewski wrote:

Yes, we do. :) The community has expanded a bit since this was first requested, but still consists of only a few active editors, so patrol would come in handy. The "no uploads" policy is still in place and it is very unlikely that it will ever be changed.

okay, done. rc patrol is only enabled for sysops, say if you also want it for autoconfirmed users or everyone.
