Ah yeah. I forgot about the Abuse filter removing other groups. But that's mostly because I haven't modified the Abuse filter on any sites or wikis in a long time.
There's an option where the Abuse filter can temporarily revoke a user's autoconfirmed status if they trigger the filter.
Also I wouldn't change the information if I were you. Since any local user can be autoconfirmed. Which is probably why it is treated as a local group, despite technically being a global group.
Correct. Even though Autoconfirmed is considered to be a local group, it can only be applied globally. The only exception to this that I know of is locally having your Autoconfirmed status revoked temporarily by the Abuse filter on wikis that have the Abuse filter extension enabled.
That's a good one! :D
Why is what for?
We aren't logging out. What are you on about? No need to rage quit over this. Seriously.
+Weg444 - As we have said hundreds of times, the legacy platform isn't coming back. So don't even think about getting your hopes up. Because you'll just end up disappointed.
It's the same thing.
You do realise that this discussion has been dead for more than 2 years, right? You shouldn't be necrobumping old threads.
@Andrewds1021 Yeah, but it doesn't fix the SnowStorm script.
I stand corrected. The database dump has been generated since I checked yesterday. But it took ages compared to how long it takes on legacy. On legacy it only took a few minutes at most. Whereas on UCP it takes several hours at least.
That doesn't explain whether or not it will be brought back. Special:Disambiguations is as good as gone. But I was asking if they had plans to add the Special:DisambiguationPageLinks page in its place.
Though it isn't part of the core MediaWiki software, it is treated as the successor to the now defunct Disambiguations special page.
3 hours later and still no database dump.
A couple of other things I forgot to add:
*The category box still doesn't show up outside the article, file, category, and blog namespaces.
*I only just submitted this bug report recently, but I think that it should reach the attention of more users:
There's a bug where certain accounts incorrectly display as being part of certain usergroups globally when you check the Special:UserRights page on UCP wikis, and the Special:ListGlobalUsers page.
**Default, Fandom, FandomBot, MediaWiki default, Wikia, and WikiaBot all incorrectly show up as being part of the bot usergroup globally.
**Grunny incorrectly shows up as being part of the bureaucrat usergroup globally.
**Callofduty4, Kerri Amber, and TyA all incorrectly show up as being part of the chatmoderator usergroup globally.
**Abuse filter, Monchoman45, RansomTime, Robin Patterson, and TK-999 all incorrectly show up as being part of the sysop usergroup globally.
This bug has been around for years, but it had been largely ignorable until now.
This is great news! But there are some things that I would like to see addressed:
*The page width preview on UCP wikis in the article namespace is still inconsistent with the actual page width.
*Special:Editcount has not yet been added to UCP wikis. And there is no confirmation as to whether it will be added to UCP wikis. It will cause problems for some communities if it doesn't get added.
*Special:DisambiguationPageLinks (which is the successor to Special:Disambiguations) has not yet been added to UCP wikis. And there is no confirmation as to whether it will be added to UCP wikis. It will cause problems for some communities if it doesn't get added.
*There is no confirmation as to whether Extension:TitleBlacklist will be added to UCP wikis. It will cause problems for some communities if it doesn't get added.
*I've just checked one of the wikis where I regularly request database dumps, and it still hasn't received its dump yet. I just made another request but it still hasn't generated. Not sure if it's because UCP dumps take longer than legacy dumps. But I'm doubtful that it will generate any time soon.
*There's still the issue where when you export and import pages from UCP wikis, the revisions that were made by other users may be erroneously attributed to the user that made the export.
Ghost tab? What do you mean?
I understand that this is an issue in newer versions of MediaWiki - I'm actually planning to submit a complaint to the developers - but it is really annoying how users with the (deletedhistory) and (deletedtext) permissions can't view deleted revisions that they can't (undelete) such as MediaWiki messages that are not whitelisted.
I really hope that a fix is being looked into. Originally I thought this was a Fandom specific issue. But I checked on Miraheze to see if the same issue existed there, and the same issue did exist.
Well yeah, but that's completely different.
