This seems related to T250856 regarding issues with bots and minor edits.

Seriously? I can't even come up with a cogent reply. You're seriously suggesting that every person who has email enabled who might not want this change has to figure out how to set up a bot in toolforge to email them?

Good god. First we can't fix T250856, and now we're making the problem worse??? I might be in the minority of wanting to get every edit made to my watchlist to my inbox, but I feel like this goes over the top to fix what is not necessarily an issue.

Primefac added a comment to T25310: Global suppression does not work properly when the target has already been locally blocked.

If I suppress a user name locally then I expect, that the user name can't be reading publicly locally by any users any more. That's the result of a suppression and should work.

Agreed; if a name is so bad it needs to be wiped entirely from the system, the WMF should be doing that themselves.

I will also note that the usual editnotice-related content does not appear on any page, i.e. when you edit a page there is no "Group notice" or "Page notice" redlink that appears as an option for making an editnotice.

Primefac added a comment to T263328: Agents can view watched tickets outside of assigned queues.

I would argue there's a difference between seeing a ticket once and kicking it over to the oversight queue, and being able to access that ticket a year or two later. While helpful for an OSer, it gives unnecessary access to a non-OSer, who will likely forget the specifics of the ticket shortly after moving it (given that I as an OSer sometimes don't remember the exact name of a suppressed article until I see the ticket again.

This problem seems to have now spread to articles, I have a couple dozen pages on my watchlist that I never received notification for, for example this edit by FrescoBot, this edit by QEDKbot, plus edits by BHGbot and Cewbot.

Can confirm. I hate to admit that this happens more often than not when I protect a page; I just assumed it was something buggy with one of my scripts and/or extensions and just went with it.

From my reading of this thread, it sounds like Timeshifter wants Rollback either disabled entirely or turned into another just another "undo" function.

Is there any motion on this? It's a rather serious deal, especially given the fact that we've had a couple thousand drafts accepted in the last few months that have likely slipped through the cracks.

Primefac added a comment to T188753: WMCZ want to use its own mail system instead of OTRS queue wm-cz@wikimedia.org.

So, "moving" it to the queue would still forward it to the proper location? How would we then track it if it's being forwarded to their private servers?

Also make it a lot harder for cross-wiki postings (i.e. something comes into info-en, now instead of just "move to info-cz" I have to actually forward the whole damn thing).

Nothing is "incorrect", I just don't particularly like the new interface. I know that's not a great reason for wanting things to stay the way they are, but the dropdown menus are massive (often going off the bottom of my screen) and I definitely preferred the smaller and more readable options of the previous version.

I'm not entirely sure. I asked Earwig about it (since he runs the bot) but he wasn't able to find anything obvious about why it would still be on the list. He's the one that suggested I open a phab ticket. I'll add him to this conversation, I guess.

This is not a Wikipedia issue. It is an issue with someone listing WP:BATHWATER as a shortcut to [[WP:Baby and bathwater]] when it really points to [[WP:Overzealous deletion]]. It should be noted that I have removed BATHWATER from the {{essay}} tag.
