{{subst:Discussion top|1=The outcome here is that, yes, [[User:Seiyena|Seiyena]]'s behaviour was indeed inappropriate, and the racially insensitive and homophobic comments also inappropriate, [[User:Kazrock4545|Kazrock4545]]'s [[Special:Redirect/logid/30522|block]] was also inappropriate for a few reasons. Firstly, as it was quite clear at [[Test Wiki:Request permissions]] that this was a [[Test Wiki:Stewards|Steward]]-managed user conduct case, the block was inappropriate. Secondly, administrators here are, fundamentally, non-test administrators. Blocking open proxies, deleting spam, or reverting vandalism is fine, but serious user conduct issues [[rfc:2119|'''must''']] be left to Stewards, unless they've explicitly delegated certain aspects (i.e., my saying that <code>[[Test Wiki:Bureaucrats|bureaucrat]]</code> could be revoked if the conditions were breached, for example). Finally, and philosophically, part of developing good [[Test Wiki:Administrators|administrator]] skills beyond technical capability is developing the diplomatic skills and engaging with users to think of other, creative and, crucially, long-term solutions that are at least somewhat amenable to all. I ''had'' meant to ask [[User:Arcversin|Arcversin]] to import the abuse filter from [[mhtest:|Public Test Wiki]], but my other responsibilities precluded that until now, so I ''do'' take that responsibility for not having done that sooner. Nevertheless, this is the solution I believe is the best. If, after a month or so (from now), it's clear Seiyena needs another time away from Test Wiki, I will make that call. Nevertheless, [[User:Seiyena|Seiyena]], to be clear, you ''can'' curse, though I encourage you ''not'' to. What you '''cannot''' do is make racist, racially insensitive, xenophobic, or homophobic comments. Thus, [[User:Kazrock4545|Kazrock4545]]'s rights revocation is {{Done|endorsed}} by this [[Test Wiki:Stewards|Steward]]. You may re-apply for administrator after a minimum of 5-7 days, if a bureaucrat is satisfied with your good edits and log actions. You may then re-apply for bureaucrat on or after May 1st, again under the same terms. I have added several minor user groups, with a particular emphasis on <code>researcher</code>, which [[rfc:2119|''should'']] allow you review your revision deleted [[Special:DeletedContributions/Seiyena|contributions]] and log actions, to help you understand what you '''cannot''' do here and make good edits. Together with [[User:Arcversin|Arcversin]]'s abuse filter, hopefully this should guide you to constructive editing here.

Oversight role?

@MacFan4000 and Void: Do you think it'd be possible to get an oversight role? Seemplez (talk) 14:15, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Seemplez: I'm just gonna bump in here, but there's no need for it right now. From what I've seen, everything is fine, and the CheckUser right isn't really needed either, the only use for the Steward permission is that it can revoke bureaucrat permissions from a user. BlackWidowMovie0 (talk) 17:29, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
I think we already have both kinds of oversight on this wiki, from google I saw https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/oversight which is revision deletion you should already be able to do the admin kind of revision deletion, there is also the suppress kind, which was done to a few entries a long time ago by MacFan4000, but for that you need to be in the suppress user group and only the stewards can assign that. Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 18:14, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
If a steward thinks you should have it, and assigns it to you, or you become a steward, then yes. Otherwise, no. Justarandomamerican (talk) 23:09, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

Spam abuse filters

I'd like to propose that we enable automatic blocking on our anti-spam abuse filters, as they have a rare false positive rate (and we can just unblock if there is a false positive). Justarandomamerican (talk) 17:51, 26 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

 Support I Do think we could use filter for that. --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 18:51, 26 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

Good idea, I had considered proposing this for a while but had never got around to it. Blocking is a restricted action though, so this will need to be closed by a stewards. Naleksuh (talk) 23:28, 26 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
We also need it because there is no way in hell I am doing this again. Naleksuh (talk) 00:10, 27 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Geez, I normally mop up the mess the spambots make, and never have I had to give myself the bot flag, nor flood the log like that. Justarandomamerican (talk) 01:49, 27 December 2020 (UTC)Reply
Agree, and prompt autoblocks will also prevent the spambots from creating new accounts on the same IP for 24 hours reducing the hit rate and making it easier to find any false positives. We can always tweak the filters that result in immediate blocks if problems occur. It may be advisable to limit blocks only to registered accounts for now since they are so far responsible for nearly all edits that trip the filter. Fast - ZoomZoom (talk) 23:15, 27 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

It looks like we had another Hell load of Bot accounts today and don't worry Nalekshu I can always do mass blocking if you need me to or want me to do it just Message me and I'll do it 🙂 --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 04:43, 27 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

Help, abuse filter blocked me

Hi, this is administrator User:PorkchopGMX editing under a VPN, a different browser, and a new account. I was editing one of my subpages, planning to delete it and use my test account to see what it would look like with the “researcher” user group, when the abuse filter thought I was spamming and blocked me indefinitely with autoblock. The only thing I can do right now (besides having to use a VPN) is to email somebody. I don’t know who I should email, so I’m doing this instead. If anybody is skeptical that this is really me, I do have access to my account and can email somebody if they need proof. PorkchopGMX’s throwaway account that will only be used once (talk) 16:15, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hello i already unblocked your main account please Do not use a Vpn i will GO ahead and Unblock your ip aswell so you can edit --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 16:22, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Thank you Cocopuff2018, I’m unblocked now. PorkchopGMX (talk) 16:43, 7 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Proposal : Remove SocialProfile

"High chance of spam" filters and false positives

The spam filters have recently falsely blocked two users (User:PorkchopGMX and User:Dmehus) as spammers that were not. As a temporary solution User:MacFan4000 has set them to just disallow again, but they clearly need to block provided we can remove false positives.

I suggest requiring 0 edits for block. Generally spambots trip this filter on their first edit, so anyone who has made any successful edits is likely not a spambot. Any other ideas? Naleksuh (talk) 23:41, 9 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

The filter should also require the creation of a new page. It already does for one of the filters, but it should for the other too. Naleksuh (talk) 23:43, 9 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
I'm a bit confused, perhaps. Wouldn't requiring 0 edits to block increase the false positive blocks? Administrators are active here, and can revert spam quickly. I'd suggest just setting it to either warn or disallow permanently, with anyone with autopatrol in their user_rights exempted from the filter. Dmehus (talk) 23:46, 9 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
I don't think so. Most administrators have more than 1 edit. I support requiring 0 edits. Justarandomamerican (talk) 23:59, 9 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
@Dmehus: How would narrowing when blocks are placed increase false positives? Naleksuh (talk) 00:00, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
Well, in my case, I only had one edit, and maybe I'm not understanding the central idea idea, but wouldn't reducing the edit requirement mean I would've been blocked when I made my permission request? Note that I never tried to add an external link—it was just an interwiki link. Dmehus (talk) 00:06, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
No, because your permissions request didn’t contain anything that would trip the filter. Also, I just tested that change, and it doesn’t work because most spambots are seeming to first make a change to their SocialProfile, which I guess counts as an edit. Or at least & user_editcount == 0 nothing trips the filter when I test it. MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 13:35, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
Oh, okay, well, I suppose it doesn't hurt to try it then, since you've tested the filter against recent edits. Plus, yeah, spam only accounts do tend add spammy links into their social profiles. Having said that, on some wikis on Miraheze what we do is simply add the SocialProfile-related rights to autoconfirmed, and that stops the spam only accounts cold, with minimal impacts on legitimate users. Also, if the above community proposal passes, this may end up being moot. Dmehus (talk) 15:57, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply
If the above community proposal fails, I support moving updateprofile into autoconfirmed. Justarandomamerican (talk) 16:34, 10 January 2021 (UTC)Reply

Restriction of Administrator rights

Hello everyone I want to explain something important to the community, it's about verification and Users who should or shouldn't have the right of admin, as for testing we already know this is a Test wiki where you can Test administrator actions, I would like to ask should we recklessly give Admin and bureaucrat right to anyone without confirming if they're Known users on Wikipedia?, I think we should ask them to confirm their account on Meta to know whether they get to benefit from using MediaWiki Tools or just for Fun. what do you think?

Thanks 🌸 Sakura emad 💖 (talk) 17:26, 27 September 2021 (UTC)Reply

Add (interwiki) user right to Bureaucrat

Requesting for import of templates Sockpuppet and Sockpuppeter

Recently some users were blocked due to their abusively using multiple accounts. To avoid these users being unblocked by other users who have sysop right wrongly, I'd like to import these two templates from Enwiki and come here to look for some advice [2][3].

It's fine to enable it, especially if it's already enabled in another prefix. Generally the concern with enabling "forward" is whether the site is trusted enough to assume it's not going to be hosting phishing attacks. — Arcversin (talk) 13:19, 19 February 2022 (UTC)Reply

MediaWiki:Gadget-markadmins.js

Can someone (preferably an IA/S/SA) review my version of the gadget and then merge it? I tweaked it so as to automate the getting process. That being said, if my version is approved, we will no longer have to edit the JSON page manually. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh (talk) 19:59, 12 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh, though this exceeds my level of JS scripting expertise, this seems reasonable and, looking at your code, there does not seem to be any potential issues. As such, I've
 done this request for you. However, I'd like Arcversin to take a second look, though, making any tweaks/revisions, as required. Also, I know I've asked you to confirm your Miraheze account on Wikimedia, but can you also provide a Wikimedia confirmation edit for your Test Wiki account? Thanks. :) Dmehus (talk) 22:48, 13 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
@NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh: @Dmehus: Looking over the new script, it's fine, however there are a few small mistakes in terms of compatibility. MediaWiki only supports ECMAScript 5 (as opposed to 6) in most places (notably, this does not apply to scripts loaded directly from a URL), which means that you need to use the var keyword instead of let, which I've fixed. Also, making use of mw.Api requires that a dependency on mediawiki.api be added in MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition, which has been done. Apart from that, the code works quite well. Do note that it would need an update should TestWiki grow to >500 sysops. — Arcversin (talk) 01:59, 14 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Inactivity policy

Hello, can you see User talk:Startus#Removal of bureaucrat.? Thanks! AlPaD (talk) 11:44, 16 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

AlPaD, thank you for your question. Your understanding of Test Wiki:Inactivity policy is the same as mine. Specifically, the one-hour rights readdition clause only applies to Stewards and System Administrators, ostensibly chiefly because those roles require a successful community vote at Test Wiki:Community portal. As to whether someone must wait the standard hold period before readding bureaucrat, I'd say your understanding is also likely correct, but it's also common sense. Provided someone didn't lose their bureaucrat bit for cause or otherwise resign under a cloud of scrutiny, that seems fine. Hope that helps. Dmehus (talk) 03:01, 17 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

You should add an email address in your preferences, then request a password reset here. PorkchopGMX (talk) 21:44, 25 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Is this email address invalid?

staff[at]testwiki.wiki seemed to be invalid? Could anyone have a test on it?Pavlov2 (talk) 16:34, 29 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

This should probably be requested on the Test Wiki Phabricator], as it is in scope of the system administrator(s). I'll try and file a request soon. Dmehus (talk) 01:05, 31 March 2022 (UTC)Reply

Trayfel's Request for Stewardship

Request a desysop for User:Pavlov2 and a permanent lock for that user

Hi, this is Pavlov2, unfortunately, I forgot the password of the previous account. Please desysop it and lock that user. Thanks a lotPavlov2~alternative (talk) 16:09, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

I don't think a total lock is possible but I can desysop the account and block it for you. Seiyena (talk) 16:52, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Seiyena: Thanks a lotPavlov2~alternative (talk) 17:06, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

@Pavlov2~alternative: You can request that your old account be renamed so that you can retrieve your old username. AlPaD (talk) 17:38, 5 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

We wouldn't likely be able to do this on Miraheze, but potentially, assuming MacFan4000 has no objections, and Pavlov2~alternative agrees to the CheckUser, we could potentially run a CheckUser, then merge and delete the former into the latter account, then rename the merged account to Pavlov2?

Removing the chat plugin

Seiyena

{{subst:Discussion top|1=The outcome here is that, yes, Seiyena's behaviour was indeed inappropriate, and the racially insensitive and homophobic comments also inappropriate, Kazrock4545's block was also inappropriate for a few reasons. Firstly, as it was quite clear at Test Wiki:Request permissions that this was a Steward-managed user conduct case, the block was inappropriate. Secondly, administrators here are, fundamentally, non-test administrators. Blocking open proxies, deleting spam, or reverting vandalism is fine, but serious user conduct issues must be left to Stewards, unless they've explicitly delegated certain aspects (i.e., my saying that bureaucrat could be revoked if the conditions were breached, for example). Finally, and philosophically, part of developing good administrator skills beyond technical capability is developing the diplomatic skills and engaging with users to think of other, creative and, crucially, long-term solutions that are at least somewhat amenable to all. I had meant to ask Arcversin to import the abuse filter from Public Test Wiki, but my other responsibilities precluded that until now, so I do take that responsibility for not having done that sooner. Nevertheless, this is the solution I believe is the best. If, after a month or so (from now), it's clear Seiyena needs another time away from Test Wiki, I will make that call. Nevertheless, Seiyena, to be clear, you can curse, though I encourage you not to. What you cannot do is make racist, racially insensitive, xenophobic, or homophobic comments. Thus, Kazrock4545's rights revocation is  endorsed by this Steward. You may re-apply for administrator after a minimum of 5-7 days, if a bureaucrat is satisfied with your good edits and log actions. You may then re-apply for bureaucrat on or after May 1st, again under the same terms. I have added several minor user groups, with a particular emphasis on researcher, which should allow you review your revision deleted contributions and log actions, to help you understand what you cannot do here and make good edits. Together with Arcversin's abuse filter, hopefully this should guide you to constructive editing here. Dmehus (talk) 03:50, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

This participant started fighting, insulting. Use words that violate human rights. Please evaluate my actions applied to this user. If the rules allow, then I ask you to check this user with the CheckUser tool. Thanks.

P.S: Sorry for the translation. Kazrok4545 (talk) 13:19, 11 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

They've asked for the following statement to be copied from their talk page:
I realize that my edits were very wrong and inexcusable, and I am very sorry for putting such bad things here. I realize that at least a temporary block is warranted in this case, but if at all possible, could my current block be set to expire automatically, after which I can have one last chance to test admin and bureaucrat powers here?

Hello! I suggest blocking some domain namespaces like Public TestWiki, because she has some good edits and actions. AlPaD (talk) 17:18, 11 April 2022 (UTC)Reply

Filter #52

@Dmehus: Could you or another Steward please add & page_id == 702 to abuse filter 52, as the second to last line? This would help prevent false positives (which result in no-warning indef blocks) by excluding Test Wiki:Request permissions from said filter. Also, is there any way for non-Stewards to get edit access to those filters? — Arcversin (talk) 01:29, 12 April 2022 (UTC)Reply
