Xauroflaux [ Global Accounts ]

Hi, I'm Xauroflaux. I'm not very active on Wikimedia projects, but can be found elsewhere and use my Wikimedia SUL account primarily for contact purposes. However, you can also find me at the following sites:

  • WikiCity on the Referata Wiki Farm - founded by me but currently inactive
  • Referata TestWiki - founded by me but currently inactive
  • Thetestwiki.org - currently a sysop for both testing and project management
  • ShoutWiki Wiki Farm - account exists but has not done anything

I do follow MediaWiki development to some extent.

Xauroflaux added a comment to T162634: If you block an IP address as anonymous only, and then change it to a hardblock or vise versa, it is recorded as a completely new block.

Don't leave this as undetermined priority

@Xauroflaux: Do you plan to work on this task?

Xauroflaux triaged T155909: Provide contribs link in block logs similar to hist link in protection logs as Normal priority.

Xauroflaux added a comment to T157508: Issuing an anon-only block, then changing anon-only setting causes incorrect block settings to be applied for anon user.

This seems very similar to T162634

Xauroflaux triaged T155051: An admin cannot create an account with Special:CreateAccount if the IP is blocked with account creation prohibited as Normal priority.

Xauroflaux added a comment to T152850: Bring the CIDR calculator to MediaWiki core.

I'm not sure about the priority on this one, but it's something that I would like to see. Makes rangeblocks easier to calculate for admins who are not checkusers.

Xauroflaux triaged T132220: Add datetime selector to Special:Block to select expiration as Low priority.

Xauroflaux triaged T128328: Split the block permission into several permissions as Low priority.

I agree with this, but there are numerous other things that need to be handled first.
