Requests for comment/Limit depth of marked reverts

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

The following request for comments is closed. There is consensus among this RfC's participants against any change. I will note that, if you want a solution to this, you could create a Phabricator ticket (if one doesn't exist already) to have a different depth on talk pages than article pages. That, however, would be out of scope of this RfC process. Regards, Vermont 🐿️ (talk) 02:25, 28 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

In MediaWiki, edits that get reverted are marked with an tag that states just that. The unexpected bit is that these reverts get marked up to 15 levels deep. So, there can be an discussion on an empty talk page with 15 edits or less, an archive bot archives it all and all of the 15 edits get marked as being reverted. The reason for this is the setting mw:Manual:$wgRevertedTagMaxDepth which is set to 15. I think others can agree this is unexpected and unwanted. Below are sections for what this setting should be changed to globally.--Snævar (talk) 08:41, 16 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Change setting to 1[edit]

Change setting to 2[edit]

Change setting to 3[edit]

Change setting to 5[edit]

Change setting to 10[edit]

Leave as-is at 15[edit]


While that tagging may not be as useful on a talk page, that probably shouldn't be adjusted if it is still useful as-is on content pages. — xaosflux Talk 12:38, 16 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
