UpsandDowns1234 added a comment to T192719: Suggestion: Modify and Deploy RC Patrol extension from wikiHow onto Wikimedia projects..

The main problem is that going through recent changes on large projects like Wikipedia is a nightmare. Because Wikipedia gets thousands of edits every hour, it becomes extremely difficult to patrol recent changes for vandalism, etc.

How can "edits" ever be stored as a "cookie"?

They can't. A cookie can only hold around 4–10 kB or so.

So they can be stored in the database but they are deleted after 24 hours and invisible to all users. That could work but can still create issues with copyrighted content.

My contribs (included my deleted ones). What I did was transcluded my user talk page into my user page, where mention notifs were sent. Then I transcluded my user page into a user subpage, where they were sent again. I left an apology on my talk page, but that was disruptive enough to get me blocked indefinitely from editing. I only have access to this diff (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:UpsandDowns1234/main.css&oldid=794971340). I transcluded the css file a while ago before doing this to my chat.

I actually realize that this should do the same thing as global locking except that they are given a link to unlock their account that expires in thirty days. Of course, if they contact a steward, then the account can be reactivated, but this will likely be declined unless if their account was compromised.

Whatever "Fandom" is (probably some hosting service?),

Yes, Fandom is the global community for all wikis on Wikia.

there is the ability to close one's own account.

Why would you like to "close" an account, compared to not using an account anymore? Which problems does that solve?

Closing accounts prevents unused accounts from being compromised or becoming sockpuppets.

This task currently proposes a solution to an unknown problem.

The problem is similar to why Google and Microsoft offer account closure. It removes most of the evidence that the user never existed: it removes the user's credentials, removes the settings, and scrambles the password, but does not remove the user's contributions.

Can you add that functionality to Wikimedia?

Is this a request to review and deploy the "CloseMyAccount" extension on Wikimedia servers?

Yes

(Removing MediaWiki-User-management tag as this does not seem to be a request to write code in MediaWiki core.)

It would be best if this function was created, however, with the blocked users and the banned users deleting accounts to circumvent their blocks, they should be locked into their account so they cannot sign out or delete. Also, to prevent errors, all contributions must be assigned to an identifier. The following can occur:

  1. The user cannot use the same username.
  2. All of their pages will be tagged for speedy deletion.
  3. The above cannot take effect for 30 days.

This will prevent errors and also ensure that users do not circumvent their blocks.
