  1. Oppose Oppose This sort of global group is too prone to misuse. * Pppery * it has begun 22:05, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]


  • From above, "the Abuse filter manager page should be more clear that this global group designation has no impact on local abuse filter creation and editing. It is only intended as a global maintenance role. The global maintenance part is included, but the local impact seems conspicuously absent upon first and even second readings." It seems as though everyone participating in this discussion is already fully aware of abuse filter concepts and capabilities. Maybe the page just needs a short introduction to Abuse Filter concepts and who can edit filters by default, and/or links to AbuseFilter, Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Edit filter or similar introductory resources. -- Dave Braunschweig (talk) 05:13, 7 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    I do like Dave Braunschweig's comment and propose that maybe the name of the group as Abuse filter maintainer may assist to reflect the role to take, as the group does not manage anything. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Billinghurst (talk)
    The idea about name change sounds good to me. We can continue the voting and if there is consensus on the creation of the group, rename it at that time. I don't want to move all the pages right now as it may cause confusion.
    But aside from the name change, is there anything else that needs to be done to the proposal? Huji (talk) 13:03, 7 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    This is basically just a rejigging/reactivation of Abuse filter editors right? — xaosflux Talk 15:14, 16 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    @Huji: Courtesy ping, unanswered question above. ~riley (talk) 06:08, 23 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Thanks for the notification, ~riley!
    @Xaosflux: correct. More specifically, this is to make sure than when the underlying AbuseFilter extension is modified, no filter on no WMF wiki becomes deactivate or dysfunctional. Huji (talk) 11:17, 23 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Comment Comment: if the vote is successful, I might make 3 things on meta: a userbox saying the abuse filter manager right, a category about the abuse filter managers and even upload a file for the page. CT301 talkcontributions 01:38, 26 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • Can we add oathauth-enable since this is very sensitive right? I know most of users who will get this right would be admin somewhere but why not? -- CptViraj (📧) 04:03, 30 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • This was definitely overlooked in the original proposal; I have added this change to the current proposal. I would agree that there is no issue in adding this right and encouraging the use of 2FA. Typically, proposals are not modified once voting has begun, however, I do not forsee this to be a cause for concern in era where cyber security is a priority. ~riley (talk) 03:51, 2 April 2020 (UTC)[reply]
