Hiding images

The following discussion is closed: possible with RevisionDelete.

Is it possible for oversights to hide old versions of uploaded images? MaxSem 19:42, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Nice Question.
The Picture Description page clear yes.
The picture self:
No, it hasn't a revision ID for Special:HideRevision and I dont see a delete button when I click on the deletet picture.
It looks like that you can only normall delete files.

Only edit histories, not file histories, may be oversighted currently. There is an open feature request for file oversight at bugzilla:8196, but a developer responded "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." I don't know when that will be. Dmcdevit 23:51, 2 January 2007 (UTC)
The new deletion system will be able to further hide deleted images. It can also hide usernames from the user list, blocklist, and block log, as well as individial revision and archived revision content/usernames/edit summaries.Voice-of-All 02:25, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
This is now possible with RevisionDelete, the result of the bitfields for rev deleted work linked by Voice of All. —Pathoschild 18:54:16, 05 November 2009 (UTC)

Adding a new rule

Can we add "Removal of information that might harm users"? I mean, getting you into jail or losing a job...--The Joke النكتة‎ 13:40, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Concerns from English Wikipedia

The following discussion is closed: not implemented.

Any thoughts on the arguments here? The change to the local policy looked likely to stick around, until someone remembered this is a centralized policy: w:Wikipedia_talk:Oversight#Added_IP_addresses_to_list. -- 146.115.58.152 21:07, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

This was never discussed or implemented, but revision deletion has since been invented and suffices for such cases. —Pathoschild 17:45:44, 05 November 2009 (UTC)
