(bump?) Just wondering if anyone is able to provide an update on this? The issue of new users maliciously hijacking pages for spam continues to be a problem on English Wikipedia, and now the spamming is not limited to disambiguation pages but is also causing preexisting articles to be overwritten. Thanks.

Hi all. I recently proposed on enwiki "that any time an article is moved it should lose its patrolled status, so that it is flagged for new page patrol (again, if necessary), other than page moves by editors with the page mover or autopatrolled rights, or perhaps all extendedconfirmed users." The proposal discussion has closed with consensus to implement the change. I was adivsed to leave a link to the discussion here, so please see the discussion. I'm not familiar with Phabricator so if I need to do something else here please leave me a note on my enwiki talk page. Cheers.
