I was wondering what approach you favor for task T157826[edit]

Do you favor keeping it as a wikipage, and having TitleBlacklist-style options, or turning it into a special page like Special:Interwiki?

Also, do you have any interest in doing a code review if I implement this, or do you know of someone who might? Thanks, Setian~mw (talk) 09:54, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Hello Setian~mw. Thanks for your message. I'd favor for {Spam,Title}Blacklist to turn them into special pages with powerful edit tools as well. I'll comment on the task. With regards to code review, my activities on gerrit ranges from very simple code reviews to janitorial activities (archiving repos, config changes, etc.), but Developers/Maintainers does list maintainers per extension.

Oh, I just saw your comment from 2016, "I think this will be a more modern way to handle URL blacklisting. I very much support this." I posted some follow-up comments to that thread about implementation ideas. I'm thinking that for code review I may try Spam Blacklist project members Legoktm and Jackmcbarn, and some other possible suspects.
By the way, does Phabricator have a way of sending PMs, or is, or email, the best way to reach people one-on-one these days? I guess I can try to /msg people on IRC. (Heh, I'm using you for rubber duck debugging today) Thanks, Setian~mw (talk) 17:48, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
