Request from the Constitution Wiki
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Please connect several extensions to this wiki (distributed in priority order):

  1. Patroller
  2. StandardDialogs (MediaWiki Stakeholders' Group)
  3. AdvancedSearch (Wikimedia)
  4. StaffPowers (analogue of one of the Fandom extensions)
  5. AbuseFilterBypass (analogue of one of the Fandom extensions)

My comments: The rights granted by these extensions should be available in ManageWiki. The first three extensions improve the usability of the wiki tools, the last two I plan to use to make some flags work.

Thanks in advance!

3 requires CirrusSearch which Miraheze doesn't have installed so it cannot be installed.

4 hasn't been declined but per the rational on T1691, it may not be feasible for install on a wiki.

5 is declined per T8175 which suggested you follow T7306's advice.

  1. Got it.
  2. I think Miraheze staff will be able to block users with the unblockable privilege without any problems by unchecking the user flag or assigning themselves the unblockable privilege. I do not have a goal to prevent blocking from stewards, this right is needed to ensure internal security.
  3. Okay, then I withdraw the request for this extension.

I am canceling the Patroller connection request because I plan to enable the FraggedRevs extension. In total, I ask you to check and connect only two extensions:

  1. StandardDialogs
  2. StaffPowers

StandardDialogs approved. Install should be done sometime within the next few weeks.

Could you also consider Patroller? As a result, FlaggedRevs did not satisfy me. And without FlaggedRevs, the standard patrol mechanism is activated. I think it would be more convenient to patrol edits with this extension.

I will consider it. But you said above you were cancelling that request, but you seemed to have changed your mind... which is fine. Although, if I'm understanding the purpose of it, would ApprovedRevs, Moderation, or even maybe PageTriage (which just lists new edits, not requiring approval) be sufficient for your use?

These should now be available from Special:ManageWiki/extensions.

Actually I'll be reverting Patroller being added as it doesn't seem to work.

Unknown Object (User) added a comment.Jan 8 2022, 03:27

Patroller is therefore declined since it didn't work.

These should now be available from Special:ManageWiki/extensions.

Thank you!
