Schniggendiller added a comment to T242712: Deprecation (if possible) of the #central channel on irc.wikimedia.org.

As a steward, I very much rely on #cvn-unifications.
The SUL watcher bots report all new account creations there, with a link to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/username. That's very useful to lock LTAs very quickly or at least examine suspicious accounts. Also, there are some regexes to highlight potentially unsuitable user names. And of course you could use your IRC client to set "private" pings for names/name patterns that are of special interest for you.
Some LTAs troll in a specific wiki with a specific name pattern, and when their IP/IP range is blocked locally, switch to another wiki to continue. Without #cvn-unifications it's next to impossible to follow them, because you couldn't watch ~ 950 account creation logs manually. (Okay, you could watch Special:Log/newusers @ Loginwiki, but you need to reload that page permanently ...)

Schniggendiller added a comment to T205794: "Thanked" sometimes not shown in revision history or diff-page (after restarting browser / session).

The thanks log does not record the specific edits. The information that you thanked user X for edit Y is stored in your browser session. If you restart your browser, there's again the "thanks" link instead of a "already thanked". And if you use another browser simultaneously, this one will not know that you thanked User X for the edit Y.

Maybe you’ll find lintHint interesting :-)
