Description Mike.lifeguard 2008-08-01 00:29:15 UTC
This would be useful when reverting pagemove vandalism so we don't create bad redirects that then need to be deleted. Perhaps would be best to make it an optional thing like markbotedit, where it only kicks in if you add the &noredir=true to the page, then his rollback links.

Code from suppressredirect can possibly be used here.

This was done by Tim Starling in r41714 (but changed the default in r41715). Please enable this for WMF wikis so we don't scurry around creating redirects after pagemove vandalism we must go back and delete. While this shouldn't be used all the time, it should be an option.

$wgGroupPermissions['rollback']['suppressredirect'] = true; //for en.wikibooks for example
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']   ['suppressredirect'] = true;

This has already been done for global rollbackers and stewards (quite a while ago), and the wikis haven't imploded yet. All vandal fighters will benefit by adding this to to the default rights for local rollbackers and sysops.
