Edit Request ~ Add Wikipedia talk:Harassment#Can other site accounts ever be linked to[edit]

I'd like to request that the following RFC Wikipedia talk:Harassment#Can other site accounts ever be linked to be added to the watch list messages. This policy change would have a far reaching effect to all editors of Wikipedia and I think they deserved to be notified this discussion is taking place. --Cameron11598 (Talk) 23:11, 5 July 2016 (UTC)

I see it was added to WP:CENT a few days ago. I imagine that would be sufficient for a discussion like this, and I'm not sure I agree that it would be far-reaching. Will leave open to see what others think. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 11:03, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done Does not appear to be wide-reaching enough; agree that WP:CENT is a good place. — xaosflux Talk 11:42, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

RfC on new user-right package[edit]

text=There is currently a request for comment open to add a new user-right package with a set of content-related admin tools (NOT block or protect), requested through RfA-like process.
text=There is currently a request for comment open to add a new user-right package option.

Last time I proposed this, it was requested to be added here, so I'm asking again (4 years later : )

While I could technically add this myself, I'd prefer someone else look it over first. - jc37 00:19, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

  • For what it's worth, I'd prefer something shorter like: "There is currently a request for comment open to add a new user-right package". As it stands, it seems to give too much information and could bias people before they even show up to the RfC. I'd also suggest maybe waiting a day or two before putting on the watchlist so it can gain some traction (like with RfAs), but I don't feel strongly enough that I would be upset if you completely ignored this.

    Listed a a shorter version above, per your comments. As I said above, this affects all wikipedians, so last time it was suggested to be listed here. Are there any oter concerns before adding it? - jc37 23:39, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
    How long to you plan to run this? (and how long do you plan to run the current rfc if different?) — xaosflux Talk 23:45, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
    30 days is up august 8. so roughly til then on both counts, I suppose.
    That said, even though I don't think there is a rule for it, I think we should probably keep watchlist notices to 10 days or less. 14 days isn't much longer than that, but still. - jc37 11:56, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
