Ajraddatz added a comment to T200176: Deletion of user js and css requires deletion and edituser* rights.

I tested it earlier today - without the editsitecss/editsitejs you can't delete the page, even if it is unprotected.

Ajraddatz added a comment to T200176: Deletion of user js and css requires deletion and edituser* rights.

I'm not seeing a huge issue here. Wikis will just need to ensure they have enough sysop + intadmins to delete these pages if they come up (if needed). If the issue of users creating oversightable content in a js/css page exists in the future, we could look at a workaround for oversighters. Otherwise stewards exist as always to act in emergencies or where nobody else can.

I've added the new right to the stewards global group, because in the local group it only works on Meta. This is an issue for global renamers, as they don't have a global group. As it stands, they will only be able to send emails from Meta. (or where the user a) has an account with edits and b) has enabled receiving emails)

Agree with Billinghurst. If any IP attempts to create a page that is blocked by an abusefilter, that IP is kept forever in the logs. An IP attempting to create a username (and failing) is no different in that regard. The log could be restricted to sysops, and individual IP --> account connections suppressed out.

Ajraddatz added a comment to T5233: Send a cookie with each block.

At some point, it's on the blocking admin to be cognisant of what they are blocking. The same criticism raised here could be raised regarding blocks in general. Keep the cookie for the block length; the issue of IPs being overblocked is separate and not related to this.

Ajraddatz added a comment to T146230: Set-up EventLogging to see how often blocked users are blocked via cookie.

Apologies for being technically illiterate, but could the impact of cookie blocks be seen through the front-end interface? This would be useful for those actually giving the blocks, or for CheckUsers investigating block evasion.

Work is needed on the extension, no matter what form that comes in. In terms of the steward workflow, the most useful addition would be a global checkuser - something which would require a rewrite or a new tool anyway. Could a revamp of the existing CU architecture happen in conjunction with this?

The previous page was so unusable for finding information that Pathoschild made a tool which listed the groups and their associated rights on the labs to compensate. I'm not expecting daily viewership here, but it is useful to be able to link to a page that clearly displays which global groups are active and have specific permissions. I would still prefer that it be separated from group management, but I can also understand the duplication concerns.

Essentially, yes. One page for managing and another for viewing, as is common with wiki extensions. Alternatively, the GlobalGroupPermissions page could be modified to have a more usable interface when reading which permissions a group has. (and preferably still with linking between it and ListGroupRights).

Ajraddatz added a comment to T19929: CentralAuth lock/hide should trigger global autoblocks.

Copying my explanation from the merged task:
Currently, global locks cannot apply an autoblock and only prevent users from logging in. It would be beneficial to add a "global block" option to this, so that the autoblock can be applied. Currently stewards need to use CheckUser to find the IP address and then separately globally block it, which is public and usually results in an easy connection of account --> IP.

Ajraddatz added a comment to T47094: Prevent accounts to be globally hidden or oversighted if they're not about to be globally locked first (or already are)..

I think we don't need this: If you hide or oversight a account, this account gets blocked at all local projects.

That's not how it works. Global account hidding just removes the account from Special:GlobalUsers and maybe users without the appropriate rights can't access Special:CentralAuth for that user either. When we globally oversight an account, CentralAuth goes wiki-by-wiki where the account exists and blocks the user with with nocreate, noemail, nousertalk, hideuser. Now, what would be the purpose on having an unlocked account but not visible in Special:GlobalUsers? or even worse, an unlocked account but globally oversighted? I've always thought "hidding" options were a complement for a lock. Best regards.

I agree that there should be separate global and local filter limits. With no impact on local projects, this shouldn't need any sort of community approval, other than customary input (perhaps through an RfC?) that allows people to point out concerns and perhaps develop systems through which other individuals can become involved in the process.

  2. Change the oversight group to suppress right now and add flow-suppress to it.
