Description Mike.lifeguard 2009-05-09 00:50:36 UTC
Currently, centralauth can only hide users, or not. We'd like to be able to set whether admins can see these, or hide from everyone, just like with revision deletion. This would presumably impact several other bugs relating to hiding users. Since Aaron did revision deletion, he may have some clues for this request as well.

Closing the bug, as now stewards have the choice between simply hiding a user from public lists and oversighting it completely. Hope that's what you meant.
Comment 2 Quentinv57 2012-03-04 13:12:30 UTC

Apparently I'm wrong on Comment #1.

Now the account can be :
* viewable from everybody
* hidden from public lists (don't know what that clearly implies)
* completely oversighted

What I think Mike meant was to add some new possibility here to hide the users at an admin-only level, which is not the [hide from public lists]. Hope I'm true.
