Forum Guidelines
This board is for discussing the Lolcow Wiki, which is still in early phases.
  1. I think @Darwin Watterson suggested the security mod we're using, but I don't know much about it.

    I agree, it's sort of hard to set in stone a perfect article. LCW borrows heavily from WP. It's not meant to be parodic or funny. It's like, this is what we know, and here are sources to back it up. What's funny is what's reality.

  2. It was suggested to me by @WeeGee who had it suggested to him by @GethN7.

  3. I suggested it given the Lolcow wiki's relatively small size and traffic, but it does require a lot of manuall overrides, otherwise it prevents a lot of otherwise innocent editing.

    If there aren't going to be regular people at the wheel, it would be better to remove it.

  4. I feel that I do a decent enough job of keeping track of it, though I'm just one guy who does have other things to do. Jaimas seems to be laying low for now so it's just me for the time being, and I have no idea where the hell Chimpburgers fucked off to. The Wiki is essentially being staffed by two people right now, myself and Null.

  5. I think locking it down to mod-approved edits because of the one Solidmario incident will slow the already infinitesimal growth of the wiki. Even if my edit gets approved in a day, that's still a day of waiting that I could've used to continue drafting the article.

    Finding some way to lock down high-traffic pages would work way better. At the very least, I should be allowed to edit subpages of my user page somehow.

  6. If the extension is moderation, when I believe you just have to assign the user rights to skip moderation, which becomes a separate user group in and of itself.
    PHP:
    require_once "$IP/extensions/Moderation/Moderation.php";

    $wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['moderation'] = true# Allow sysops to use Special:Moderation
    $wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['skip-moderation'] = true# Allow sysops to skip moderation
    $wgGroupPermissions['bot']['skip-moderation'] = true# Allow bots to skip moderation
    $wgGroupPermissions['checkuser']['moderation-checkuser'] = false# Don't let checkusers see IPs on Special:Moderation

    $wgAddGroups['sysop'][] = 'automoderated'# Allow sysops to assign "automoderated" flag
    $wgRemoveGroups['sysop'][] = 'automoderated'# Allow sysops to remove "automoderated" flag

  7. Perhaps maybe more sysops need to be appointed? How about @Feline Darkmage, would you be a wiki sysop?

  8. He got a real job and retired from professional cyberbowling.

    I don't even know how to wiki and I have other shit to do aside from hotpocketing this website.

    But I recommend @LulzKiller in my stead because he's good at wiki.

  10. I will say keep the amount of sysops proportional to the amount of activity on the wiki. This is why I suggested removing the security shit; it's overkill, and if we solve it with more sysops, that'll be a lot of people policing no content. Most days, the recent changes list is under 10 lines. Even three people monitoring 10 changes a day (usually closer to 5), most of which come from only a few people anyway, sounds remarkably inefficient.

  12. That's admittedly my fault. Minor power level, but I'm dealing with a ton of heavy-handed IRL shit and it kinda slipped past me.

    I approved the corrections and blocked the account though. Next time I'll be more careful. I apologize.
