Tags created by LCA tools[edit]

Hi. I've noticed that LCA tools 1.0 and 1.5 had created each one a tag with one edit, see the bottom of Special:Tags. I'm contacting you as the publisher of those OAuth apps. Do you still need those tags defined ? If not, it would be appreciated if you could un-define those so that they can be deleted (or delete them yourself if possible). Regards, Cenarium (talk) 23:45, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

@Cenarium: 1.5 is an active tool that could still edit here on occasion (it is a tool that we use for some copyright takedowns etc) and so I'd prefer it stay around to allow tags created by the tool to be recognizable as such. 1.0 is an old version (OAuth sadly does not yet have a way to ask for more rights without creating a whole new consumer) and so I don't have a huge issue with it being deleted with that few edits here. I disabled it (and so it's shown as no longer active) however I can't honestly find anyway to delete it.. the interface doesn't let you delete tags used by extensions and I'm not sure if OAuth has anyway to do it itself. (If the way exists I likely have the "ability" to do it but I can't find the way...). Jalexander--WMF 00:44, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into that. So it looks like the OAuth extension always tags the edits made through it and there's no way to prevent that or subsequently make the tag no longer defined ? That's a problem in the OAuth extension then, I'll file a bug for this. Cenarium (talk) 14:55, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

We especially encourage folks to add your 5-minute lightning talks to our roster, and otherwise join in the "open space" experience! Newcomers are very welcome! Bring your friends and colleagues! --Pharos (talk) 21:58, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
