Is this problem still occurring? I just tested logging in on ShoutWiki Hub and I had no issues with logging in/logging out/logging back in.

This was fixed on the same day by @lewiscawte (kudos!). The mistake was mine, sorry about that; I was trying to stop some cross-wiki spam originating from a certain IP range and as the spam edits (but not account creations) stopped, I figured the code snippet worked as expected, but I didn't test it. Again, apologies for this!

Okay, this rather harsh and unfriendly communication from a staff member already painted a bad picture. Now, we have this, which is totally unacceptable and amounts to global users with "superpowers" overriding a local community/admin action. That's two strikes. One more and I leave. This is not the behavior that I expect from the staff team from a service like this.
But... while all RevDel leaves a trace, there are two levels of RevDel. The "lower level" can be restored by anyone with the deletionrevision right, which by default is assigned to the sysop group (as on Wikipedia). The "second level" can only be restored or viewed by users with the suppressrevision right, which is what the WP:OS is.
No. Oversight is the group that remains at Wikipedia assigned the RevDel permissions. Oversight was an extension that used to leave no trace that was replaced by RevDel. All RevDel now leaves a trace and can be restored, all this information is on the WP:OS page you linked - however, this does not matter as we are not granting that right to users.
I'm sorry, but they are not the same thing.
They're the same thing. They use the same feature. We're not giving out rights to them, and we won't be "cleaning up" logs and history in future, unless there's a leak of personal information or libel as stated in the system message for RevisionDelete.
@jack thanks for the response.
ShoutWiki is indeed not consensus-operated and individual wikis' settings generally speaking need consensus only from the existing community (if any); "global consensus" just isn't something that's a thing over here.

Except that I'm not asking for revision suppression. I'm asking for revision deletion. There are two different things.
I think it needs consensus from all ShoutWiki users to have the supressrevision right on Independent wikis.
I don't know who or what "Miraheze" is/was or what that has to do with this request.
I am a former Miraheze user, I do not think that it is possible. Maybe it could be restricted to SW staff.

One thing I'd like to ask you right away: are these requests for all of ShoutWiki or for a single wiki? (If the latter, can you provide its URL/subdomain?)
Hi @Brianna82, thanks for filing this request! One thing I'd like to ask you right away: are these requests for all of ShoutWiki or for a single wiki? (If the latter, can you provide its URL/subdomain?)
This was done ages ago.
LookupContribs v. 2.0 fixed this for LookupContribs, but as discussed on IRC, we'll need that schema change to the lookupcontribs table to be able to make MultiLookup use LC's dataset.

Can I atleast get an explanation?
Almost everything on this list is not set the way you're requesting on purpose.
