Global User Rights Requests
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

I would like to request the following changes to user rights across all wikis:

  • Add (deletelogentry) right to admin group. - with delete, you can only hide entries from non-admins. Staff can still see deleted logs and admins still can't see or change visibility of suppressed logs. Having this will allow admins to better combat spam and vandalism.
  • Add (deleterevision) right to admin group. - with delete, you can only hide revisions from non-admins. Staff can still see deleted revisions and admins still can't see or change visibility of suppressed revisions. Having this will allow admins to better combat spam and vandalism.
  • Add (importupload) right to admin group. - This will allow admins to bring in data from other wikis onto the platform, allowing them to transfer another wiki to here or bring in a relevant article from another wiki. You could also make it bureaucrat or steward only.
  • Add (import) right to admin group. - This will allow admins to bring in data from other wikis onto the platform, allowing them to transfer another wiki to here or bring in a relevant article from another wiki. You could also make it bureaucrat or steward only.
  • Add (upload_by_url) right to admin group. - This will allow admins to quickly bring in images from other sites without having to download them first.
  • Create patrol group with (patrol) and (autopatrol) rights. - to allow semi-trusted users to help patrol and have their edits autopatroled.
  • Add (tboverride-account) right to bureaucrat. - this plus (override-antispoof) meens that bureaucrats can use any non-taken, non-reserved account name.
  • Create ipblockexempt group with (ipblock-exempt) right. - to allow semi-trusted users to bypass ip blocks.
  • Give admins the ability to add and remove the rollback, patrol, and ipblockexempt groups.
  • Also let both bureaucrats and stewards add and remove the new groups as well.
  • Allow anyone to remove themselves from any group. ($wgGroupsRemoveFromSelf = [ '*' => true ];)
  • And maybe, add some requirements to be autoconfirmed. If you do also add a confirmed group with the same rights that can be added/removed by admins, bureaucrats, and stewards.

Almost everything on this list is not set the way you're requesting on purpose.

Can I atleast get an explanation?

To which of the 30-million points?

Import: nobody is importing anything at the moment.
Patrol group: Not globally, there's a very few wikis on ShoutWiki that would actually find this useful.
AntiSpoof: No, accounts are global, local bureaucrats don't have global rights, and therefore don't need global exemptions.
Rollback group: 'crats are the de facto assigners of rights. If you really have that many people to assign rollback to, assign more 'crats.
