Description Dominic 2006-12-09 07:35:17 UTC
Currently only page revisions may be oversighted. However, non-public personally
identifiable or libelous images (and other media) can only be deleted. We
recently ran into this problem and could not have hidden a file without
developer help.

Oversighting images sounds good to me.

Please don't post "yeah, +1" style comments on bug reports. Thank you.
Comment 4 Aaron Schulz 2006-12-21 05:05:03 UTC
This may have to wait until live image storage is converted to FileStore format
like the archives. Otherwise the code would end up useless soon anyway.
Comment 5 Effeietsanders 2007-12-23 11:29:57 UTC
Is it already possible to fix this error? I have come across a few occasions now already where there was no possibility to remove the images, although that would have been preferrable (either because of the image itself, either because of a summary during the upload, which is visible very much in the file history. Also in the log's, but that's another story I assume :) )

Right now the image has to be deleted manually from the deleted image archive directory. This isn't very difficult, but it's a slight pain.

In theory it ought not to be too difficult to set up an alternate archive and an interface to move them over.

Comment 9 Larry Pieniazek 2008-01-16 19:49:28 UTC
Give that we have two dup bugs created, one by me (and  honestly, I searched for bugs that might be dups of it and did not find this one) I tried to add some keywords to hopefully forestall more dups. (That didn't work, so I changed the summary to add "images", a natural thing for non devs to search on ) I suspect that there will be increasing interest in this. bug 12646 has some UI suggestions that might be useful for the implementer to review (in a nutshell, please make the UI as much like text revision oversight as possible, and maybe use the same permissions group to control who can use it)
Comment 10 Aaron Schulz 2008-04-02 05:56:01 UTC
Done in 32278 - r32685.
Comment 11 Victor Vasiliev 2008-07-09 15:41:44 UTC
Actually, it isn't fixed. Please, check bug component before closing bug and don't confuse oversight extension with rev_deleted.
Comment 12 Aaron Schulz 2008-07-09 16:50:53 UTC
This extension was only a temporary hack until the new deletion system was made.
Comment 13 Aaron Schulz 2008-09-18 11:42:31 UTC
This is done with revisiondelete. It should not be done in the temporary Oversight extension. Request to enable it would be a separate bug.

That would be bug 15029.
