What if we delete the usergroupEdit

Hello. We, ruwiki users, want to remove one of ours usergroups for non-experienced users and join its userrights to another usergroup. We have a question: is it necessary to exclude this group from all users having it before that, which will litter the action logs, or at the moment of deleting the group it will simply disappear from all its users without visible actions in the wiki logs?

Hi @MBH, thanks for the question! When an user group is deleted from the configuration, sysadmins generally do empty it out. This is not automatic, but there is a script (emptyUserGroup.php) to facilitate this. Generally, you don't need to worry about it -- just fill a Phabricator task to get the group removed (and its permissions reassigned), and sysadmins will do the needful. Hope it makes sense!

Thanks, but I'll try to make my question clearer. One ruwiki user opposed the proposal to delete the group because before deleting it 1500 users would have to be excluded from it and this would clutter up the logs. Is this true, or will deleting the group not create 1500 new entries in the rights log? MBH (talk) 14:16, 5 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
