Description Michal Zlatkovsky 2008-03-26 16:41:52 UTC
Make autoconfirmed apply to all projects once the global username reaches the criteria on one project.
Comment 1 Patrik (pajz) 2008-04-06 09:24:41 UTC
I am not sure if this is such a great idea. It would be much easier for vandal accounts to edit semi-protected pages/move pages/upload images on multiple wikis as they'd need to fill the criteria only once (i.e. wait some days).
Comment 2 Daniel Kinzler 2008-07-26 07:24:58 UTC
I think this would be ok when combined with the ability of global blocks.

Indeed - that would be quite an exploit. Note that the users most needing this (cross-wiki vandal fighters) have the appropriate permissions applied to the global group such that this is unnecessary. Suggest WONTFIX.
