Remove show/hide patrolled edits from watchlists if patrolling is disabled
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We don't use patrolled edits on wikipedia, so this should be removed from watchlists. This does nothing, just confuses users. It's not in recent changes.

There is no configuration variable for this.

Actually, it shouldn't be there at all if patrolling is disabled. this should be moved to mediawiki.

Looks like it appears because new page patrolling is enabled. It only disappears when both $wgUseNPPatrol and $wgUseRCPatrol are set to false. That makes sense, I think.

Actually, it doesn't work for new pages : edits creating a new page that is not yet patrolled are shown even if patrolled edits are hidden. So this does nothing. Although it may be considered a bug, the use case of this setting for watchlists when $wgUseRCPatrol is disabled is so insignificant that it should rather be removed, as it has been already removed for recent changes. This should disappear when $wgUseRCPatrol is set to false.
