User talk:CobraMice

From TestWiki

Despite your extremely dubious comment that you were "granted permission by JohnLewis to attempt a privilege-escalation on this wiki", I see no evidence of this and it appears to be a hoax. As such, I have blocked you for attempted script injection. If this is not the case, John is welcome to perform the unblock. Naleksuh (talk) 02:46, 29 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  • @Naleksuh: Aww, you got it :). For what it's worth, I actually did get IRC permission from JohnLewis to attempt this; you can see the JS was set to lock this account automatically. John: The problem here is that instead of just one page to protect (Mediawiki:common.js), if you want to do it this way you'll need to protect every .js file for every account with advanced privileges (e.g. User:JohnLewis/vector.js) -- an impossible task. Instead, remove the ability of administrators to edit js (both sitewide and userspace), or at least remove the ability to modify rights on this wiki.

    • @Dmehus and Naleksuh: For what it's worth bureaucrats should not be given this permission either. I don't know how widespread these policies are on Miraheze wikis, but editing sitewide/other user JS on any wiki should be restricted to users whom you really wouldn't mind becoming stewards. The risk level associated with these permissions is quite high. Best, CobraMice (talk) 03:02, 29 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I can confirm this was responsibly requested through me before. User is established elsewhere, and no malicious intent exists. John (talk) 03:26, 29 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@John: Thank you for this confirmation. I've removed the block. Dmehus (talk) 03:29, 29 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
