Description Dbl2010 2007-04-25 14:32:11 UTC
When stewards change user right of someone for some wiki, using
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Makesysop , there is no comment field
that they can enter a reason. It would be very useful for logging purposes.
Comment 1 Darkoneko 2007-04-25 15:25:38 UTC
I really agree.. and if I wasn't so damn lazy I'd have post this myself earlier :)

Being able to add a comment would be really helpful, especially since our
actions as steward can supposedly bring lawsuits and similar things upon us
(that's the reason we were asked to give ID scans when we RfS, I heard)
Comment 2 oscar 2007-04-25 15:28:08 UTC
following the similar advantage of a commentary with the checkuser-tool for the
log, this will communicate much faster the rationales of steward-actions
Comment 3 Cary Bass 2007-04-25 15:48:56 UTC
I have so many times wanted to explain why I did a makesysop action or
understand why someone else did one without having to track them down and ask
them.  This will greatly help the steward community and the community at large.
Comment 4 Raimond Spekking 2007-04-26 09:28:22 UTC
Fixed with r21607.
Comment 5 Darkoneko 2007-04-27 11:48:59 UTC
Thank you very much
Comment 6 Cary Bass 2007-04-28 15:20:21 UTC
This is not showing up in the log now :(
Comment 7 Aaron Schulz 2007-04-28 15:22:31 UTC
(In reply to comment #6)
> This is not showing up in the log now :(

What do you mean? The reason?
Comment 8 Dbl2010 2007-04-28 15:26:02 UTC
The box is still there. And you can enter. But the message is not carried to log
anymore. See : http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Log/rights The log was
working 27th but not anymore.
Comment 9 Jon Harald Søby 2007-04-28 15:26:17 UTC
See [[m:Special:Log/rights]]. A few days ago (like yesterday), the form of a log
element was like this:

* 22:52, 27 April 2007 Jon Harald Søby (Talk | contribs | block) changed group
membership for User:Jon Harald Søby@tawikiquote from (none) to sysop; to delete
vandalism

While now it only shows up as:

* 22:52, 27 April 2007 Jon Harald Søby (Talk | contribs | block) changed group
membership for User:Jon Harald Søby@tawikiquote from (none) to sysop

(It was correct initially, but now it's not, for some reason.)
Comment 10 Raimond Spekking 2007-04-28 15:37:00 UTC
Fixed with r21683.
