Xaosflux added a comment to T268800: SecurePoll should differentiate partial blocks from "full" blocks.

For very complex cases, those are likely a minority of users - that can be added to the override list as needed?

Xaosflux added a comment to T268800: SecurePoll should differentiate partial blocks from "full" blocks.

Notably the enwiki electcom shouldn't be the decider in how this software works - some users of it may want this functionality even if others don't; perhaps adding support to securepoll for differentiating block-types for restrictions though?

Xaosflux added a comment to T265726: Assign oathauth-verify-user to bureaucrats on WMF wikis.

@Tgr - we also allow all those 'crats to issue int-admin to anyone - but they are not supposed to do it unless the accounts have 2FA -- but they aren't able to actually check that so they just give it to anyone that claims they have 2FA, defeating the control (also not allowing audit to see if 2FA has been disabled). I expected this to be a bit borderline due to the way some projects (such as eswiki I mentioned above) give out 'crat to lots of users.

Xaosflux added a comment to T265726: Assign oathauth-verify-user to bureaucrats on WMF wikis.

Somewhat expect this to be controversial and need some weigh in. One the one hand, there is no way for these users to ensure this is in place before extending sensitive access - on the other hand some projects have a staggering amount of bureaucrats for some reason that this would extend the query access to (e.g. eswiki has 68 crats!). I'd say only on projects where bureaucrats can issues interface-admin, but that is currently all of the projects.

Xaosflux added a comment to T202989: Administrators can no longer view deleted history of js/css pages.

@PerfektesChaos those pages can be deleted for any type of reason (a common reason is "owner" request) - occasionally the owners then ask what the content was. Also keep in mind, that while those content models are designed for code, users can put anything in them - and letting admins investigate what happened by users is normally a good thing. If there is actual "dangerous" code on those pages, revision/page suppression can still be used.

Xaosflux added a comment to T262621: Add checkbox to account creation form for making the user manually confirmed.

Would want to see this allow for expiration as well, practice-wise on enwiki for example we have many groups that may create accounts - but depending on the reason for creation this is designed to only be for a specific event and should expire (of course the account could become auto confirmed in the interim). Perhaps even a default value / list such as on the block form could be used?

Xaosflux added a comment to T259863: Watchlist Expiry: allow expiry timestamps in raw mode.

I wasn't trying to be prescriptive in the format - and raw editing is usually more of a 'power editor' option. Right now it appears that the expiring data is completely lost if you use the raw editor though to do bulk changes (as it isn't included in the data feed) - so if you copy out thousands of rows and want to restore them you loose the existing expiries.

That should be discussed locally, the community may prefer to keep both the h2 headings visible as long as possible, even if it will make narrow columns. Local discussions are welcome at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template_talk:Protected_page_text

Xaosflux added a comment to T254485: Regression: Wikidata item missing in Monobook (WikibaseClient should use the SidebarBeforeOutput hook instead of BaseTemplateToolbox).

I'm not saying that is an overwhelming amount of feedback - but it is user feedback, there are only 14 subscribers on this task as well. Some of the feedback is that links to wikidata aren't as useful for readers as they are for editors, as wikidata isn't really reader content; but it is very useful as a tool for editors that incorporate the data in to the presentation content.

Xaosflux added a comment to T66315: Move "Data item" link outside of sidebar toolbox.

Recent discussions of this use with editors (c.f. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment/2020_left_sidebar_update&oldid=960644483#Move_Wikidata_to_%22In_other_projects%22 ) that make use of the link, where the feedback was to keep it in tools. Moving it around sections based on external factors may be confusing.

@Demian and @NordNordWest - a recent discussion with editors that use this link though that was a bad idea (c.f. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Requests_for_comment/2020_left_sidebar_update&oldid=960644483#Move_Wikidata_to_%22In_other_projects%22)

With a patch authored over a year ago, is there anyone else that can get this moving again?

Xaosflux added a comment to T194529: Allow a user to be blocked from moving/renaming pages.

@Mooeypoo partial blocks already support blocking editing/creating as an action; and most projects will speedily delete pages that copy-and-paste as copyright issues. This is solely about the permission, as there have been instances where users are disruptive - but only about using the 'move' function - where prior to partial blocks would have been remedied with a traditional site block.
