Proposal: give the right to hide flow posts only to autoconfirmed

15
Bawolff (talkcontribs)

every now and then anons are inappropriately hiding flow posts. I'm not even sure its malicious I think they just think the button means mark as read. anyways, can we restrict the right to autoconfirm?

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

Support - It doesn't make sense to me that we restrict "Edit Structured Discussions posts by other users (flow-edit-post)" right to autoconfirmed users while giving access to "flow-hide" right to all users. I mean I have seen a number of IPs vandalising by hiding posts.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

sure

DSquirrelGM (talkcontribs)

I've noticed that a number of times recently as well - not sure it needs to necessarily be autoconfirmed, just logged in.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Strong support. Hidden topics can't be noticed unless you actually follow them in your watchlist, and the hide action is not notified in Echo, it only appears when visiting the watchlist, which is annoying.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

For context, originally hiding posts was only available to sysops (I think), and people complained that "normal users can blank talk pages!" and so rights were altered.

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

Doesn't the same logic applies for flow-edit-post right?

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

sounds fine to me, although i'll note that this seems like it has been less of a problem in practise.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yes, that too. Happy to implement the consensus request, once it settles down. Thoughts?

Leaderboard (talkcontribs)

I'm in support of this request.

Mainframe98 (talkcontribs)

So am I. I can't recall I've ever seen an anon use that function productively.

Bawolff (talkcontribs)

I think this counts as consensus?

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

I suppose.

Leaderboard (talkcontribs)

I think so, haven't seen any opposition.

DSquirrelGM (talkcontribs)

I'd consider this to be resolved as accepted by all that have contributed to the discussion.

Editing Sites using MediaWiki/en

"It seems that you're trying to add an external link to a page". Well yes, that's what "Sites using MediaWiki/en" is meant for. I happen to be logged into Wikipedia but that seems irrelevant. Your page asks for an external link, I was obliging but to no effect, your security won't let me.


If anyone would like to drop it there on my behalf, to benefit the page:

Hi @Cb6, looks like you were having trouble with abuse filter 12. Wikimedia sites, unfortunately are prone to third party link spam and other types of vandalism. To keep away the ones who try to harm our movement to share sum of our free knowledge to others, we sometimes have to create filters like this. We regret the inconvenience and the false positives they may cause to our good-faith contributors, but we unfortunately have to rely on feedbacks like this to find those bugs and fix them. I have modified the filter and added an exemption. Could you try again adding the link? Thanks for your report. Courtesy pinging Leaderboard, who have set the filter mode to disallow. It looks like we are facing some false positives.

Leaderboard (talkcontribs)

I think the filter did its job properly. I'm not sure whether it is worth adding that link to be honest; is it really notable?

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

You have read the "Feel free to add your site to the appropriate language list (select your language from the list on the right first)." on Sites_using_MediaWiki. Right?

Leaderboard (talkcontribs)

I'll admit that I haven't, however, I was fully aware of the intention and purpose of the page. I understand that it was good, but I was wondering whether every wiki powered by MediaWiki should be on the list or whether there should be a criteria of 'notability'. After all, this is an old page, and I am not sure whether this page would stand up today. But that's for another time.

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

There is no such thing as "notability" guidelines on this site. That page is for listing and keeping tracks of the sites that are using Mediawiki. If you want to change it, then please feel free to start a discussion.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Actually, WikiApiary is the place to list all sites using MediaWiki.

Leaderboard (talkcontribs)

Hmm, so what should we do with the MediaWiki page then? It was created long ago when WikiApiary wasn't a thing, so was there any discussion on that page?

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

We may get in a never ending fight about what criteria we should establish to the acceptance criteria, so I'd suggest to remove all wikis from there, mention WMF sites and point to wikiapiary for a searchable list of wikis using MediaWiki.

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

No objections.

Leaderboard (talkcontribs)

I think that would be the right approach indeed.

Cb6 (talkcontribs)

Thank you all for your responses. It appears "Sites using MediaWiki/en" may be obsolete, or just a rarely accessed index. There may be other index pages on other sites doing the job more prominently. I have no quibble with those scenarios. I do think that if the page exists then it should do what it says it does, which is to allow other mediawiki site owners to update the index in line with the invitation it presents in black and white. No doubt the position will be clarified in due course once the present debate reaches a verdict. ~~~~

DSquirrelGM (talkcontribs)

All of those site listing pages should probably just be completely removed, since even the existing sites on the list rarely get updated (note I didn't say never, I have actually edited some on it before) when they should, and it's not particularly useful. The way to go forward on this is probably to move it to a page listing WMF projects only, if it's to be kept at all.

I am seeing a HTTP 500 error if I visit the site. How it will be helpful if I just change the URL?

78.32.143.113 (talkcontribs)

I am guessing you are clicking on the old WikiIndex dot '''com''' site. It is now at WikiIndex dot '''org'''. It is now also https, and drops the leading 'www'. Regards. 78.32.143.113 23:28, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Works for me. Maybe it's an intermittent problem. Anyway, URL changed.

Summary by Dinoguy1000

Pages moved

Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

Extension talk:MediaFunctions has a single comment, a Liquified version of a wikitext comment originally left in 2007. This comment is unrelated to the current extension, which usurped an older extension of the same name earlier in 2007 (the dates don't make it obvious, but the contents of the comment do: they relate to Special:Version being unviewable, caused by an accented character in the author's name, Stephane Brunner; this is the name of the author of the usurped extension). I tried moving the talk page (and subpages) to the old extension, but because there's already a LQT talk page there, it was prevented, and I don't have the experience to know how to fix this myself.

I asked for guidelines but you have corrected the template by yourself. Now I see the section 'Structured Discussions Portal' appearing twice. Have you checked the effect ?

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

No. I don't know what you wanted to do.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

ok good propagation of the correction now after Fuzzybot action.

Add wiki to Sites using MediaWiki/en

Luka Ibrišimović (talkcontribs)

Hello,


I would like to list my wiki on Sites using MediaWiki/en but I'm unable to do it myself.

Could you do that for me?


Here is entry for the 'P' list:


PetraWiki - en.petrawiki.org
General interest wiki


Thank you!

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

Looks like your wiki may be violating copyright of Wikipedia, by importing articles from the English Wikipedia without the full history, or attributing correctly the source of those pages. You should fix this first.

Luka Ibrišimović (talkcontribs)

What's the 'correct' way of attributing Wikipedia? Is including Wikipedia link in 'External links' section on the bottom of pages proper way of attributing?
