Description Borgx 2006-01-19 01:33:49 UTC
It will be nice if there is by usergroup filter in rc, so I propose this idea to
make rc patroller job easier.

Show edits made by:
- all
- anonymous users
- anonymous users+registered users (minus administrators and bots)
- administrators (sysop+bureaucrat)
- bots

The current set of default filters still dont provide all the views requested here.  It would be possible to set up AbuseFilter rules to label edits to achieve these goals, but that is a bit silly.

"anonymous users+registered users (minus administrators and bots)"

not possible.  I think this would help some workflows for small wikis

"administrators (sysop+bureaucrat)"

not possible.  While nice, I cant quickly think of a common workflow which would benefit from this.  No doubt it exists.  It would be good if someone can mention a specific use for this.


not possible.  (show bots & hide registered users returns 0 bot RC entries)  IMO this is the most significant lacking feature of the RC UI.  People often want to specifically review what the bots are doing, as these edits are not reviewed by usual RC workflows.
Comment 4 Krinkle 2014-06-05 09:43:50 UTC
Why would one need to explicitly hide/show edits made by sysops or bureaucrats?

If certain users don't need their edits patrolled, those users or user groups should be given the 'autopatrol' right.

I'm not seeing a valid use case in this request that would justify such a feature.
