Anti trolling/malware question[edit]

Is there a way to edit the interface to prevent transparent image overlay <div>s linked to e.g. malware or shock images with interface edits, or will a spam blacklist-like examination of style="..." attributes be necessary? There have been recent GNAA-related attempts to troll WP:ANI with what very well may be malware targeted at controlling admins' browsers. Tashir 19:02, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Add review and/or autoreview right[edit]

I would like to suggest to logically add review and/or autoreview right to this group, so changes can be seen immediatelly and not wait ages for review.

Review, no way. Autoreview, maybe. Where are you running into this? (as a sidenote, these permissions would have to be added from testwiki or as meta doesn't have either, and stewards do not posses either to the best of my knowledge). Without a very good reason, I would say no. Snowolf How can I help? 18:11, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

RfC to make this a policy or guideline[edit]

Global userpage creation[edit]

It seems that the recommendation to auto-create a global userpage is no longer possible. Is anyone aware of a working method of doing this? @User:Krinkle @User:Pathoschild @User:Hoo man --99of9 (talk) 10:17, 16 July 2014 (UTC)


What is a typical use of editprotected right by interface editors? Are there examples of *.js or *.css that are protected and need to be edited by them? whym (talk) 00:16, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes. This primarily applies to templates we have to edit, but sometimes wikis also import scripts from other namespaces (most commonly the Project namespace, e.g. Wikipedia:) in which those pages both can (and should be) additionally protected. –Krinkletalk 12:37, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for answering, it totally makes sense to me. whym (talk) 12:46, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

"By default"?[edit]

"By default, appointment will be temporary, lasting any time up to a year..." What does this mean? Is "by default" = a) "normally", b) "thus far", or perhaps c) "without exception"? --Pxos (talk) 17:34, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Normally, I think. --MF-W 18:49, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

How to make a request[edit]

The Communication section should probably mention how one can ask global interface editors to do something - there doesn't seem to be a separate requests page for them. --Tgr (talk) 08:10, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
