For any page with a history of edits greater than 100, permit moves only after
administrator approval. Essentially, this could be some what of a 'built-in'
version of Requests for page moves. Additionally, preventing pages from being
moved after a certain number of edits helps to reduce vandalism page moves.
CVS version got a new system for user rights. You will then be able
to disable page move for all but certain groups of people. Should
solve the trouble.
Again, I think you missed the point of the request. The request was to permit
users to move pages, but the page move does not occur immediately. Rather, some
special page would be used where administrators can approve or deny the page
It's like prompting whether you want to move a file, except a sysop is the only
one who can answer yes or no.
From what I can understand, you think this fixed since there is a restriction on
user moves. "You will then be able
to disable page move for all but certain groups of people."
The point of this was to automatically build in [[en:Wikipedia:Request for page
moves]]. If a page is protected from moving or what not, a user may attempt to
move the page, where by it is listed on to a special page that automatically has
Page requesting to be moved -> page requesting to be moved to -- User, User's
talk page, User's contributions (Comment) (Allow) (Deny)
When an administrator clicks either Allow and Deny, a comment box is given why
the request was denied or allowed. The Allow and Deny is shown only those with
sysop status. The comment is for all users to make a comment to support or
oppose the move.
Well, it sounds unwiki to me. Page moves can be reversed, after all. I do
sympathise with those people battling Willy on Wheels and his various hordes of
page move vandals, but I don't see this feature going up on regular Wikipedia.
Having said that, I can't see any reason why it could be implemented as an
optional feature, toggled by a configuration file option.
See above. I said it could literally automatically build the log for Request
for page moves. This actually gives a bit more power to people with non-sysop
access. Anyone who wants a title corrected because they don't have the rights
to do so, may have the move be "reviewed" by an Administrator. Furthermore, the
moves can be queued and stacked.
Moves can be reversed. Plus, we disable moves for non-autonfirmed users. If
anyone is disruptive we can always block.
This is too much complex code for little use.
