kolbert added a comment to T265812: Common Protection/Block messages should change based on the language of the user/site they are access from.

I would like to implore the Language Team to see if they have any suggestions on a good implementation of this. T243863 hasn't had any real progress on it, and there are two issues that could potentially be addressed simultaneously.

kolbert added a comment to T261481: Allow bureaucrats to remove sysop permissions on Commons.

There's a consensus to do take this action, it would not be appropriate to re-visit the discussion here. That opportunity was had and it was open for three months...

kolbert updated subscribers of T255161: Poll stewards and admins on spam-fighting efforts.
  1. I used to be more active in anti-spam, but I have largely given up due to the lack of tools to be able to effectively mitigate them. How much time you spend depends on how in-depth you go. You can easily just lock the lists of 20+ spambot accounts posted on SRG, without doing any checks or blocking the underlying IPs/ranges. It takes much longer if you're looking into the underlying IPs/ranges, and checking for potential collateral damage for blocks.

Declining in favour of T209669, as the error output is no longer broken and that task seems like a more updated proposal.

kolbert added a comment to T132614: No way to work around account creation blocks for global accounts.

OTRS Ticket#2019081310000247 is another example. I think a reasonable solution is to create a globalgrouppermission to Global IP block exempt that would allow a user to create an account even if their IP is locally blocked.

I was able to reproduce this while trying to use it on zhwiki, and the deletions I had were not even successful. Keep in mind, I was trying to delete on a wiki I was not a sysop, but had deletion permissions for (as a steward).
