@kaldari There were nine files uploaded today. Eight have been deleted, and none of those eight needed purging. We'll see what happens with the ninth file. Seems like the purge is working so far.

I don't want to commit to this yet, until we see how the TCG rework goes.
The retrospective was held today, facilitated by Max Binder. From Audiences we had Dan Garry, Danny Horn, and Sam Smith. From the CL team we had Erica Litrenta, Nick Wilson, and myself.

Had a brief chat with Tilman about all of our various plans at Wikimania. Should we all have a meeting and get on the same page, and maybe have some sort of working timeframe?
Meta-ORES is now known as JADE.

I've created T174492 to split out the CU table request.
This task can probably have the problem reworded more elegantly.
Actually using this solution will to fight abuse will require having GRR ID numbers available to see which wiki the request was filed from, so that the investigation can be carried out by local CheckUsers or Stewards as appropriate.

I think the most frequent question I've been asked is, "Have you see <Jane/John>?"

@kaldari It seems we have goal #4 in T167400: Disable serving unpatrolled new files to Wikipedia Zero users, and it is an important one to the Commons community to end the piracy issue. The uploads of IP protected media are not necessarily coming from WP0, but it is large groups of WP0 users that are organized to download said material. We can play whack-a-mole all day with uploaders, but it is believed the situation will not go away until we remove access to downloading the files. Is this something we're going to look into?

Yes, thank you. I'm now subscribed to T129845 (restricted), which contains all the useful links.
Someone hit English Wikinews the other day as well (https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Edman_Musik3). According to @Dispenser , the files were deleted within ten minutes but still accessed ~100,000 times.
