Majora added a comment to T214003: Merge the "extended-uploader" and "autopatrolled" user groups on Commons.

@Tgr Would it be possible to also add the upload_by_url right to the patroller group per https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Commons:Village_pump/Proposals&oldid=336738154#Make_the_%22more_upload_options%22_proposal_apply_to_all_user_accounts_with_autopatrol_flag? Or should I create a new ticket for that?

Is here still consensus for doing this?

@Zoranzoki21 as you claimed this task, do you agree the proposal included all autopatrolled users, so also patrollers and bots? If not, I'll just request for those 687 users to be granted autopatrol.

While deployment of this request, extended-uploader can be migrated to autopatrol via this script.

@AlexisJazz Obviously there was some confusion between user groups and user rights which is understandable. I personally don't have a problem with including the patroller user group in this request since, as you said, patroller is an "upgrade" to the autopatrolled group as it is currently defined on Commons. I didn't read your original proposal as meaning "add upload_by_url to every group that has the autopatrol flag" but I guess I could read it that way also. If another RfC is required to grant the flag to the patroller group as well then so be it. But that would be up to the devs who actually make those changes whether or not they want to include the patroller group since it is set up to be an extension of autopatrolled on Commons.

Would this then also automatically give these permissions to "patrollers"?

Autopatrol is included in patrol.

Majora added a comment to T150826: Remove unblockself right on wikimedia wikis (but allow blocked admins to block their blocker).

I would have to agree that the ability to block the person who blocked you would mitigate the problems with small wikis that have very few admins that the removal of this permission presents. At least with that there is the ability to stop the damage being done if the entire admin staff is blocked by a compromised account. Non-compromised accounts can be easily unblocked and the vandalism would be stopped. As for rate limits I really don't think that is a good idea. The limit would need to be set so high as to be rather useless as to not interfere with the normal administrative duties that occur.

I'll note the relevant recent vandalism has occurred on wikis other than just enwiki. It stands to reason the account compromises that enwiki saw can and will happen elsewhere.

Why was this done globally instead of just to enwiki as requested? No other project requested this as far as I'm aware. To remove unblockself from all wikis, especially smaller ones where there are only one or two admins, raises a bunch of problems. It would be better if the devs only did this on the projects that requested it instead of extending the massive paranoia to every single project.

Majora added a comment to T190349: Allow users to be blocked from editing pages within a specific category.

Not to put a damper on this idea but did we all forget about cascading semi-protection? That was removed because it would have allowed non-admins to perform admin actions. Unless we were to restrict adding and removing categories to admins only this would allow anyone to block people under this type of partial block from additional pages. Which is something that should probably be avoided.

Majora added a comment to T125459: Investigation: Can we find a new search API for CorenSearchBot and Copyvio Detector tool?.

@Tnegrin: Yes, we are still considering Google. If nothing pans out with Microsoft on Monday, it seems like it will be the only option still available. And yes, we'll need to talk about funding for it.

How about an impromptu (is that the right word?) fundraising banner (read 'edit notice') and all money generated goes directly to this...😋

That would be a good idea, but it would have to be not intrusive. Massive banners asking for people to give money would annoy people. A sitenotice could be used too.
