Discussion notifications[edit source]

As you have probably noticed by now, Site updates have not been sent/updated for a while. The main reason for this is the fact that there was not an interest in it, and there was not enough information that was worth sending to users monthly.

I am sending this message to the Site updates list because I would like to propose a trying out a different type of notice sent to users. Instead of monthly updates of a limited number of statistics (which can be consulted by users anyway), staff would instead notify interested users if there is an interesting discussion (on Community noticeboard or Stewards' noticeboard) or if there is a local vote on Meta. Currently, there is no incentive for many users to visit Meta and check recent changes to see if there is anything they would be interested in, so this system would fix that and notify users of that so they can join in the discussion whenever there is one.

In order to subscribe to these notifications, please add your name in the same format to Discussion notifications/List, and you will start being notified on your talkpage. If there is interest in these notifications, they will be continued.

Also, please note that at least for the time being Site updates will be discontinued (since all the statistics are available anyway).

housekeeping[edit source]

Hi, you have deleted my pages that I created. Template:Twinkle standard installation/doc is actually needed. LegoMaster (talk Account information: block logcontribslogsabuse logCentralAuth) 00:41, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

@LegoMaster: What is the template needed for? Reception123 (talk) (C) 07:44, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Filter 27[edit source]

What's the purpose of that filter? As far as I know, there's nothing wrong with any regular user using the "Reverted edits by" edit summary, as its obvious that it wasn't MediaWiki rollback from the lack of the associated tag (although @John: or @Void: may wish to confirm this). Unless there is some policy that explicitly prohibits manual use of such an edit summary, I ask that you please revert that filter creation, or at least turn off the disallow feature.

According to the AbuseLog, what MacFan4000 wanted to prevent actually looked like something that is even not an undoing but faking as if it were a rollback/undo like these edits (though I found out later that my test was an incomplete one, there's no way to detect (non-)rollback action itself according to rules format after all, and therefore cannot detect fake rollback by rollbackers or admins). However, you are right and since we can detect such edits by lacking tags, I have disabled the filter.--開拓者 (The Pioneer) (talk/contribs | global🌎) 05:53, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
