Unintended PING-Spam[edit]

The last change of MediaWiki software had an unintended collateral damage: Instead of just pinging those, who are mentioned deliberately for that cause in an edit summary, it pings all, that are accidentally the last stable version editors of vandal reverts. Ther is already a Phab about that, and it's mentioned in a thread in the chat, but as a fast fix some admin could simply change the MediaWiki:Revertpage to the recommended version without linking the former editor to:

Reverted edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last revision by $1

The recommended version should be by [[:User:$1|$1]] which I have already done. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 16:52, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
I've asked if this could be done before, quite a while ago. I don't think anyone was against the idea, it just seemed that nobody could be bothered to change the status quo. Now it seems necessary and I would welcome this change being done. I would do it myself, but don't want to "break" anything! (edit conflict) @Matěj Suchánek: I can't see the previous version in the history, but who says this is "recommended"? Jared Preston (talk) 16:58, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
My version will keep the link (status quo) as well prevent the ping-spam. I didn't remove the link because I just wanted to prevent the latter. I think nothing will break if you remove the link. The "previous" version was loaded from translatewiki. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 17:03, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
I just think it would look neater not linking to the username of the last non-vandal contributor, like on the English and German Wikipedias for example. Jared Preston (talk) 17:13, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
As mentioned here and here the problem will be fixed this week --Alaa :)..! 18:50, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

350 edits per minute[edit]

User talk:Renamerr#How many batches and edits do you have left? - can someone keep an eye on him and possibly unblock him when he responds? It's 1AM now, and I may not be around when he's around. — regards, Revi 16:14, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

I took care of it, maybe we need to document about "acceptable (semi-)automated tool speed" or is it already documented but I don't know where it is? — regards, Revi 16:50, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
Yes, we need one. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 17:12, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
There are some sensible guidelines on meta:Bot policy#Edit throttle and peak hours. --bdijkstra (overleg) 19:52, 20 March 2018 (UTC)
