Description MA 2013-02-17 12:46:27 UTC
The current CentralAuth form allows you to globally hid or oversight an account without setting the global lock option first.

It is my understanding that global hidding and global oversighting is a complement to global locking; as it makes no sense to globally oversight or hid an account without globally locking it first so it can continue editting.

Please prevent selecting the 'hidding' options if you don't select first the 'lock' option.

I would prefer to just add a javascript confirm dialog in this situation.
Comment 2 Chris Steipp 2013-02-20 01:00:17 UTC
Javascript would be good, although checking that the user is locked on when doing the hide should be pretty easy also.

Note that at least when I wrote it, oversighted users actually had stronger restrictions on them, like, they were not allowed to create accounts on new wikis because they'd appear in logs.
