ToBeFree reopened T177159: Avoid indexing of local "copies" of the central user page as "Open".

reopening, but perhaps it's the wrong phabricator task. T90475 seems to be relevant too. Judging by the title of this task here, however, it isn't yet fixed.

ToBeFree added a comment to T177159: Avoid indexing of local "copies" of the central user page.

Same for the dewiki page; the search terms "Benutzer ToBeFree de wikipedia" and "User ToBeFree Wikimedia Commons" are very specific, but to my knowledge, a properly working "NOINDEX" should prevent, or even remove, these results.

I think I have an example use case that I'd need right now: I'm creating a global userpage on meta.wikimedia.org and would like to add a globally working "Add new message to my talk page" link. This does not seem to work without having a local page that can be accessed using an internal wikilink to execute the action. Any magic words are parsed on Meta before being displayed on the other wikis, external links are unflexible, but wikilinks are being interpreted locally.

The timeout is nothing new, my preferences show 1000 entries by default, and that's too much for 60 seconds. Wondering if PHP7 accelerates this process enough to finish within 60 seconds, I opened the page, and received plaintext instead of the "usual" warning design. I guess this is relatively intentional and can be ignored.

  1. if this happens, the null revisions are not the main problem – the overall high edit count is. It would be wrong to blame the final straw for breaking the camel's back.
  2. Ignore null revisions for non-admin overwriting redirect checks.
  3. Force a null revision to be made, do not provide a checkbox.
  4. Do not show a rollback link if all the affected edits are null revisions.

ToBeFree added a comment to T72239: Generate entries for deletions and restores in page histories.

Most of that IRC log seems to contain arguments that are invalid when implementing this as a null edit rather than doing extra database queries whenever viewing the revison history. The first real point appears at 16:57:22. In my personal opinion, it should not matter how a ticket is written; the existence of a feature request implies that there is use for the feature, and the feature has no downsides, so it should be implemented. This is open since 2014, and people are now wondering (see Village Pump link above) why this is still not a thing.

[...]

  • Allow blocked admins to block the user who blocked them (but not others). That removes first-mover advantage on small wikis - in case of serious trouble the admins will lock each other out and things will mostly be at a standstill until stewards come and clean things up.

If you assume an adversary who is not subject to rate limits and uses automated tools, unblocking themselves whenever needed for further carnage will likely lead to the same result. The unblockself privilege only makes a difference against humans who act harmfully and are limited by their own action speed.
