Description

3 years ago
Right now we're under utilizing mediawiki's page patrolling features, which is very useful for combating spam and which we'll need if we intend to open up registration.

I suggest we make the following changes:

1. make edits all users in confirm group group autopatrolled
2. make 'patrol' ability available to many more users

#2 can be accomplished either by recruiting and training for Anti-spam team or by adding 'patrol' ability to 'confirm' group. 

I think I'm in favor of adding 'patrol' to 'confirm' group rather than on-boarding a ton of folks to Anti-spam since that group can delete pages.

Another option is to add patrol ability to bureaucrat group and recruit for that.
I agree with the following things:

* Add 'autopatrol' permission to 'confirm' group.
* Add 'patrol' permission to 'bureaucrat' group.

If there's any other proposals on the table, let's defer them.
I also agree with the following:

* Add 'patrol' permission to 'confirm' group.
