Lea_WMDE added a comment to T142372: Solution ideas for wish #7 - page protection switches.

Hypothesis:
Sometimes pages are protected for a longer time than necessary, since admins cannot be following all pages they protect and unprotect

Lea_WMDE added a comment to T143419: Insights/ Voices from the Community for the page protection wish (#7).

Since admins are more reacting to outside demands "protect this page!", "unprotect this page", and have different strategies, they may accidentally be undoing each other's actions

Lea_WMDE added a comment to T143419: Insights/ Voices from the Community for the page protection wish (#7).

There are different protection types:

  • edit protection
  • move protection: This is actually the hardest to clean up. It is mainly about articles that have been renamed, or worse, split
  • upload protection

Lea_WMDE closed T143414: Investigate how to undo moving a file to commons as "Declined".

There are multiple issues that arise if we implement a rollback option from the very beginning:

  • Technically, people would have to have deletion, not just rollback rights, since they are deleting a file on Commons
  • What should be done if further changes had happened on the Commons version of the file? It could then not just be undone

Lea_WMDE added a comment to T143419: Insights/ Voices from the Community for the page protection wish (#7).

From conversations with 7 admins of de-wiki:

  • The principle of "trust first" is very important. Often times there is also pages with an infinite protection whose protection has simply been forgotten. This should not happen. A page should have the least protection necessary. "If the page protection prevents one good edit, it has already been a bad idea"
  • Sometimes it is necessary to protect a page for long periods of time, e.g. pages that are used in school context (e.g. articles about building tools, animals...), pages about famous people (e.g. Angela Merkel) or controverse topics (e.g. abortion). They need to be protected for long periods of time, because there is a high likelihood that they are vandalized
  • Which protection level is set also depends on the history of protections for this page.
  • Admins have different strategies of page protection. E.g., some never use the infinite protection status, but only 1 year or 2, so that the page has more chances of losing its protection again.
  • It is not really that pages are watched to be able to protect them at some point, but more alerts admins receive and react upon, e.g. requests for protection, or requests for taking away protections.

Lea_WMDE added a comment to T143419: Insights/ Voices from the Community for the page protection wish (#7).

Basics about page protection:

  • The wiki default is "everybody can do everything". However, there are different protections that take away some of rights for some of the users.
  • Protection rights are hierarchical. However, user roles (groups) may mix protection rights in whichever manner they want. Therefore groups are not necessarily hierarchical.
  • Right now, per protection level, one (or no) group is defined for protection, i.e. "autoprotect"...
  • Which user roles and page protection types exist differs from community to community. There is the default of semi-protection/ full-protection throughout the wiki, but e.g. de-wiki has another right for "sighters" in between the two. It looks like usually the number of protection rights (including unprotected) is between 3 and 6
