Block access of creating new articles among ip address user

CyberTroopers (talkcontribs)

Hi guys, I'm one of sysop in Malay Wikipedia and we had done a vote about this matter. Before I do an application about it in meta, I would like to learn a bit about configurations in mediawiki which is related to the matter. Would someone suggest me links to the related-matter? Thank you!

Note, that in wikimedia, there are various configs related to this beyond what the standard documentation mentions.

In particular:

  • enwiki and fawiki allow everyone to create pages in the draft namespace (but not other namespaces)
  • Some wikis restrict either (or both) createpage and createpagemainns rights

In any case, don't worry too much about the technical details, when you file a request in phabricator, whomever processes your request will sort out the technical details.

Our proposal is to block "createepagemain" only which is only subject to the creation of articles in the main namespace. A meta admin had helped us to create the task in Phabricator. Thank you for all information given!
