@stjn almost everything we do creates 'massive outrage'. It's important however that options are simply explored, even if they may seem undesirable or possibly even unrealistic.

And by commenting I am trying to say that this is not an option worth exploring. Undeploying without anything else instead is as viable of an option like undeploying AbuseFilter is (albeit it, too, has problems with extension support).

including all patrol actions prior to April 2016

I don't think this is the right approach for removal of autopatrols out of the logging table. Autopatrols before April 2016 are distinguishable, even if not by log_action, and by doing this we would lose a lot of actual data in contrast to removing only autopattrol actions.

MGChecker added a comment to T184309: Investigation: Thanks notification for log entry.
  • are we talking about log entries for log entries being deleted or are we talking about log entries which deal with deletion of stuff on the wikis? If we're talking about the former, I'd err on the side of caution and skip thanking anything. If we're talking about the latter - I'm not sure why we would be thanking the deleted user -- shouldn't we be thanking the person who deleted the user or the person who deleted the offensive action?

So my understanding is that a deleted log entry (i.e. one which all fields should be taken to be deleted) is a "restricted" deletion. These can still be seen by users with the suppressrevision right, and those users might want to be able to thank for them.

Log entries with other deletion types (comment, action, and user) can be seen by users with the deletedhistory right. They also might want to thank for these?

A "comment" deleted log entry is one that's just got its comment deleted. (Umm... I think? I mean, that's supported, but does it ever happen?)

I can imagine someone creating a log entry with an offensive comment and that being deleted. But that's probably very rare.

First of all, it makes this whole thing more complicated. You have to check the accessibility of the log for a given user before delivering a thanks he commited. (Well, you don't have to, as you're technically aren't disclosing any private information, but this leads me to the second point.)

MGChecker added a comment to T186470: Some edits cannot be thanked in page histories with imported revisions.

This isn't the same diff, @Amire80. The thanks link is displayed neither in the history nor in the diff.

MGChecker added a comment to T32750: [Epic] Ping/notify user when username used in an edit summary.

It's possible to add a second textbox where users could add users to be notified. It wouldn't be recorded in the edit summary. Something like...

But of course, it's more work to build and we won't be able to do it within Echo, as far as I can tell.

It sounds like a log type (and not subtype) blacklist is still the easiest thing then.

Nevertheless, I want to point out that exactly this idea is the premise of T182480, which lead to the creation of this project. The activity of this subproject makes monitoring the activity of Anti-Harassment really spammy and messy.

I propose to remove Anti-Harassment from the InteractionTimeline related tasks, is there isn't a concrete sprint assigned, as this was the idea of this project to begin with. You don't use Anti-Harassment at all AbuseFilter tasks either.

MGChecker added a comment to T60485: [Epic] Allow thanks of log entry.

Yeah, but this actually makes them even more complicated in my opinion, as it would be really contraintuitive to disallow thanks on these log entries if they are possible on all the other ones. The software would have to link the revisions associated with moves, protections and uploads with the log entries to prevent double thanks for some actions. Otherwise, this would be confusing for people who give thanks and such who are receiving them as well.

I just realized patrol/autopatrol will be problematic as well. It shouldn't be possible to thank for these log_action, analogous to thanks/thanks, newusers/create and newusers/autocreate. Tagging via applychangetags might be problematic as well, but you can't distinguish them by log_action. [https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/24499 1] However, maybe a distinction between change tags added on edit and change tags added afterwards by log_action can be added in the future.
