There are several vetoes against "judgment", so we'll block deployment until this can be resolved.

Some thoughts about what the name should communicate:

  • We're stating opinions rather than facts.
  • We're creating these opinions collaboratively.
  • Any opinions generated are part of a dialogue and an ongoing process, not a final verdict. A "stub" article can be improved. A damaging edit can be followed up on to reverse the damage, potentially salvaging something constructive about the edit.
  • Our language should be friendly and relatable. People with no background in Jade should feel encouraged by getting notifications from the service.

For what it's worth, I also think that "Judgement" is a pretty loaded word in English (and apparently in other languages / cultures as well) so would ideally use another term for this.

jrbs added a comment to T210475: User should not be allowed to edit user talk page if checkbox is enabled (partial blocks).

Proposal 1

  • The "Prevent [...] own talk page" checkbox should only be active if the block is configured to sitewide.
  • The input for Page block should reject the block target's user_talk page
  • The input for Namespace block should reject the User_talk: namespace

jrbs added a comment to T210475: User should not be allowed to edit user talk page if checkbox is enabled (partial blocks).

Speaking as a Wikipedia administrator (and not as a staff member):

  • If I am blocking someone from a certain page and nothing else, regardless of the namespace, I would not want to prevent this person from editing their own talk page. I cannot think of a single reason why this would make sense. Topic bans, which admittedly are social, never prevent the person from using their own talkpage (unless they were using it to circumvent the topic ban - like if someone were topic-banned from "bananas" broadly construed and used their talk page to rant about bananas).
  • If I am blocking someone from their own user talk page only, it makes no sense to show the checkbox IMO. Honestly, a better solution might be to detect if the blocking admin is trying to do this and show some kind of warning (or auto-check that checkbox if it remains on the page).
  • However, if I'm blocking someone from the whole user talk namespace, it still makes sense to have this box there, since whatever they're doing that requires them to be blocked from the whole namespace may also be happening on their talk page (thus you'd want to block that off too).

jrbs added a comment to T150826: Remove unblockself right on wikimedia wikis (but allow blocked admins to block their blocker).

@Ankit-Maity is referring to blocking 5-10 admins not ordinary users.
No, what @Tgr suggested is a ratelimit for blocking privileged accounts. See bellow:

A rate limit on blocking privileged users on the other hand is a good mitigation for large projects where the concern is that the attacker blocks all the dozens or hundreds of admin accounts very rapidly, taking advantage of human reaction times being much slower than API speeds.

jrbs added a comment to T150826: Remove unblockself right on wikimedia wikis (but allow blocked admins to block their blocker).

Let's not complicate this situation further by giving admins the ability to block the people who blocked them - in fact, that's exactly the scenario that all of this is trying to prevent. In the three cases on enwiki that immediately come to mind, the blocked admin blocked the administrators who blocked them. Status quo ante, they had to unblock themselves first to do that. This wouldn't even require them unblocking themselves. Please don't go there.

jrbs added a comment to T209802: Cannot vote on votewiki.

Installing the package gnupg1 and using

$wgSecurePollGPGCommand = 'gpg1';

causes this to be fixed, I have tested it on mwmaint1002. Apparently lightprocess hangs waiting for gpg-agent to exit, which gpg2 autostarts whenever a private key operation is done.

Piotr deployed Tim's patch to switch $wgSegurePollPGPCommand as part of European Mid-day SWAT and gpg1 is now installed on all app servers via Puppet. This unbreaks voting, so I'm lowering the priority to "Normal". Not sure if we should explicity track gnupg2 support with a custom task, as this is specific to HHVM, which we're moving away from? We can also simply close the bug for good.

jrbs added a comment to T208507: Unsubmitted text in TitlesMultiselectWidget on Sp:Block should be treated as submitted when widget becomes unfocussed.

I reckon this is OOUI territory but it seems like we'd need to decide what action/character means you are done with that item. Spaces won't work because pages have spaces in the name, right? Some apps that do this with tags use the comma as a signal. At any rate, blurring the field should submit these at a minimum.

Good question, Alex. I would say we should start small and accept their exact input as one submission. In other words, treat spaces and commas as parts of the page name. e.g. if they type George Washington to accept it as George Washington and Omaha, Nebraska as Omaha, Nebraska.

jrbs added a comment to T208512: CheckUser tool is inaccessible while partial-blocked.

If a user needs to be blocked, does it really merit the amount of trust that is needed for holding the CheckUser privilege?

Seems to have fixed itself ... I just ran it in support of T207097 and it seems to have worked fine. Someone may wish to doublecheck.

+1 for removing it and seeing what it looks like now. I was wondering if the spammers had taken a break but didn't want to jinx it. Hopefully it's not as bad as it was before.
