Please, add new page protection level for Latvian Wikipedia. So that pages can be edited by autopatrolled users (which were enabled for Latvian Wikipedia at this request), and all higher user types (admins), of course.
All the users with the autopatrol right would be able to edit the pages protected with this level. At lvwiki, this means bots and patrollers, in addition to autopatrolled users and sysops. Is that fine by the community?
Wanted to ask, if it's not too late. Is it possible to add cascade protection option for this protection level (that is - for autopatrolled users)? Or it is possible only for sysop's protection level?
If yes, then could it also be added? If it is too late to do it at this request, but it is possible, then should I have a RfC at Latvian Wikipedia community or I can file a new request without community's RfC? I'm really sure there won't be any opposes to this, as we are really small community, and nobody (except some) is interested in such non-interesting things :)
It is technically possible. The usual procedure is to obtain consensus before deploying configuration changes unless it is a minor or WP:COMMONSENSE case. Since this doesn't appear to be a minor change, I think it is better if you start a community discussion first. If the above changeset gets deployed before the discussion ends and if there is community consensus for cascading protection, you can always file a new ticket.
Postponed the deploy.
<anomie> Glaisher: Do they realize that editing a page protected with cascading requires the 'protect' right in addition to whatever right is specified? <Glaisher> oh, I don't think they do <anomie> Otherwise someone could sneak around not being able to protect pages by editing a cascade-protected page they do have permission to edit, thereby extending the cascading.
Please confirm whether we should proceed with adding cascading protection level along with 'protect' right or whether normal protection only would be fine.
Sorry for delay.
The perfect situation would be: autopatrollers are able to edit pages, which are included in cascading protection. The page, which is protected with cascading protection option for autopatrolled users, can be edited by admins. I hope you understood what I mean.
If it's not possible, then forgot about the cascading protection, just add new protection level for autopatroll group.
