Description Rémi Kaupp 2007-02-06 18:31:08 UTC
It has been proposed on fr.wikipedia to include older users in the
"autoconfirmed" group in order to better track vandalism. The discussion has
taken place on the admin's noticeboard where full support has been given.

The discussion shows that wgAutoConfirmAge could be equal to about 90 days
(7,776,000 seconds) and wgAutoConfirmCount equal to 500 edits.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2007-02-06 19:38:03 UTC
Older users would already be included...?
Comment 2 Rémi Kaupp 2007-02-06 20:24:51 UTC
Are we talking about the same thing ? We would like users with those
characteristics (older than 90 days, more than 500 contribs) to have their edits
automatically marked as "patrolled", which is not the case currently: only
admins' contributions are currently marked as patrolled. Sorry if I confused
with something else.

> Are we talking about the same thing? 

Yes and no. Yes, "autoconfirmed" is involved, but no, it wasn't clear *what* was
being asked for. This is two separate configuration issues; changing the
criteria for autoconfirmed status, and granting the permission.

90 days is an extremely long time to make users wait for the permission,
especially when it's used to determine who can access functions such as moving
pages. You might want to reconsider this aspect.
Comment 4 Rémi Kaupp 2007-02-06 21:10:15 UTC
Woops, sorry, I only meant to grant the right to mark (automatically) their
edits as "patrolled", without changing anything else. In particular, we don't
want to change the time after which someone can move a page or this sort of
things. But for "autopatrol", 4 days would be too short. Isn't it possible to
set these two parameters independently? Is there another way to grant this
permission to non-admins?
