Just noting that one of the larger issues with this is the attribution error for licensing purposes. In some cases history merges are needed to fix it, which is a pain.

TonyBallioni added a comment to T195888: Create "vanish" option in Special:GlobalRenameRequest.

@Framawiki: @revi was responding to my comment above about making sure there was confirmation for the intent to vanish using this method. I think a dedicated page or some sort of confirmation to the decision to vanish would be important, otherwise I'm pretty sure we will be getting emails/talk page posts about accidental vanishings.

TonyBallioni added a comment to T195888: Create "vanish" option in Special:GlobalRenameRequest.

Thanks @Trijnstel for adding my comment from the list. Yes. I think requiring two clicks to confirm they actually want to vanish is important. Even if only an edge case, we would get people who claimed to misclick and submit. This would eliminate that problem.

In terms of global account creation this is a limited version of the account creator user group and has less functionality in that regard as it can’t globally override the blacklist or anti-spoof measures.

TonyBallioni added a comment to T193075: Create the 'Event coordinator' user group on English Wikipedia.

@Andrew_Davidson : this is already the standard practice at PERM for confirmed status. You just set an expiry time (usually a week) in Special:User rights management when granting the flag. Autoconfirmed attaches within the time frame once they've made 10 edits, so the right is superfluous.

@mobrovac: the reason there is only one stuck currently is likely because we have stopped doing renames until this is fixed because having users locked out of their account isn't ideal.

@JEumerus

  • A notification on the talk page of the user who made the article

Not always, nominating deletions of Wikidata items do not require such notify.


Also, for several months I'm wondering why Collaboration team is "maintaining" MediaWiki-extensions-PageCuration related tasks, and are members of that really doing maintains? If there's benefit that this work must be continued, how about moving those tasks to another team?

TonyBallioni added a comment to T175225: Add a 'Learners' (autoconfirmed) filter to New Pages Feed and rename the existing 'new editors' filter.

Thanks @TonyBallioni. Sounds good. If we're adding a new filter, I suggest the following: Since the filters discussed above work identically to the "experience-level" filters defined for the New Filters for Edit Review (moving out of beta on RC page soon), we should conform their names with the New Filters names, so we have a consistent filtering experience. (Otherwise we'd have two sets of filters that do the same things but are named differently). So:

  • The existing "New users" filter becomes "Newcomers"
  • And the new filter we create will be named "Learners (autoconfirmed)"

    I added the parenthetical "autoconfirmed" as a way to define this while staying consistent, as I say. You can read about the experience level filters in the New Filters documentation.

    If that sounds good, I'll write it up as a spec in the Description above.

After reading the above, I concur with @Rentier . If ACTRIAL is made permanent we can deal with removing the old feature then. Adding a new filter will be useful for ACTRIAL both during and after regardless of the outcome.

Question regarding this: it has been marked as blocked on development. Does this mean it is not moving forward? I am asking because of the potential impact it might have on gathering statistics during ACTRIAL if it is implemented in the middle of the trial.
