I don't know about other projects but on enwiki we usually indef block accounts engaging in behaviour that gets accounts locked. And when an expiry is applied anyway, what typically happens is that the account is gone completely after the block has expired or that the misbehaviour continues, requiring more work at cleaning it up/more readers seeing vandalized or spammy content.

JEumerus added a comment to T88044: Make rollback use POST instead of GET (use AJAX in GUI).

Seems like such a construction would increase the time it takes for an edit to be rolled back, which is a problem for vandalism on highly visible pages (I've seen pages on enwiki with 100,000 or so views per day) and for wikis with lots of readers and lots of rollback actions (even if the added delay only increases the number of readers that see a vandalized version by 0.01 readers/rollback, this stacks up on a wiki with 1000 rollbacks per day to 10 readers) since it increases the visibility of vandalism. No opinion on what the cost/benefit ratio is at the end.

Perhaps what is wanted is to allow page curation to supports variations on the workflow I proposed above. That would mean Page Triage, but with the messages/tags/notifications customizable (including no notification). And where a deletion discussion is posted would also be customizable. And how many iterations of these workflows are possible. I don't know if this all is technically feasible.

JEumerus added a comment to T50552: Make PageTriage wiki agnostic.

@MarcoAurelio's proposal seems to be the right one. As far as I know, most workflows for deletion involve:

  • A tag on the article, linking to the place where the discussion is held
  • A notification on the talk page of the user who made the article
  • Either:
    • A dedicated page like "Project:X/Articletitle" (e.g Commons:Deletion requests/File:Spam.png)
    • A section on a dedicated page like "Project:XY#Articletitle" (e.g Wikipedia:Files for deletion/20 September 2017#File:Spam.png), typically with Y being a date
    • No discussion at all (PROD and speedy processes)

Not sure that the template markup "{{PMID|somenumber}}" is in any way messier and unreadabler than "PMID somenumber". The very existence of this task is kind of proof that the magic links can make problems. As well as a number of "RFC somenumber" making false positive links on enwiki.

JEumerus added a comment to T11790: Watchlist doesn't show earlier normal edits when hiding bot edits or minor edits.

I don't think that all reverts by a bot by default imply that the reverted edit can be hidden. Since rollback is usually applied to vandalism and vandal edits are the problem case to hide here, I'd limit the "hide reverted edit" function to rollback so that different reverts can be treated differently if need be.

JEumerus updated subscribers of T11790: Watchlist doesn't show earlier normal edits when hiding bot edits or minor edits.

@MZMcBride : Point #1 is right. Point #2 would need a bit more discussion, especially about whether "revert" means "any revert" or just "rollback".

The fact that (with the exception of Ilmari_Karonen farther up) nobody has proposed a patch to fix the issue, and Ilmari_Karonen's patch has the issue Quiddity mentioned. Someone with dev skills needs to write another code patch.

If it matters, my impression was that Gather was insufficiently socialized and that the maintenance burden for the communities involved was underestimated.

JEumerus added a project to T154262: Rename user SSTflyer to Feminist: DBA.

Perhaps in a new wiki. A bit concerned that the extensive inter-site dependencies such a repository would create (a bad edit in the repository affects hundreds of projects) clash with the self-governance philosophy of Wikimedia projects. There are already some conflicts when Commons removes images that are in use in other projects.

editinterface in SUL means all admins, seems like. I've seen concerns that one can easily lose access to an account with 2FA and opposition towards making it mandatory for this and other reasons, so probably needs a consensus first.

My impression was that the Meta Wiki block here is used to prevent appeals/edits when they have no chance of ending well. Is there a need for a three layer (blocked everywhere but Meta - blocked everywhere but Meta user talk pages - blocked everywhere) system over the two layer one which seems to be the current system (blocked everywhere but Meta - blocked everywhere)?
