Description Jussi-Ville Heiskanen 2007-06-27 13:28:00 UTC
Finnish wikipedia is using the system of flagging good edits as patrolled, so they can be selectively hidden from recent changes, in order to concentrate effort without too much duplication. There was a [ vote], and the community decided that the limit that users would have to satisfy to be allowed to flag edits as patrolled would be to have made 1000 edits, and have had a registered username for at least 100 days. Now I understand it is possible to set an autoconfirm system for that, please do that for the Finnish Wikipedia. People are eagerly awaiting this.

This will require changing the existing automatic confirmation settings, i.e. affecting those used for moving pages, etc.

I've added appropriate hooks (r23478) and an extension (r23480) to allow simple configuration of automatic group membership based on criteria, which means this can now be done without affecting the existing 'autoconfirm' requirements.

I tried to enable the extension, but failed.

'wgAutomaticGroups' => array(
    'default' => false,
    'fiwiki' => array(
        'patrolers' => array( 'edits' => 900900 ),

'groupOverrides' => array(
    'fiwiki' => array( 'patrolers' => array( 'patrol' => true ) ),

mysql> select user_editcount from user where user_name='JeLuF';
| user_editcount |
|        1000000 |

But I still don't see the links that a patroler should see.

'AutopromoteExtraGroups' => array(
    'fiwiki' => array(
    	'patroler' => array( '&',
                array( APCOND_EDITCOUNT, 1000 ),
                array( APCOND_AGE, 100 ),
