- [(+338)] – New anti-vandalism function is included to the recent changes. When an edit is made it now shows up in the RC how many characters are removed or added. This function is also added to the IRC-stream of the recent changes. To use is conect to irc.wikimedia.org with a IRC-client and go to #xx.wikiproject = so FR Wikibooks is #fr.wikibooks
- [Site notice] – registered users have now the option to hide the site notice messages. It works with a cookie. The cookie expires after one month. To view the the site notice again or delete the cookie “dismissSiteNotice” or a sysop must give the site notice a new ID-number. This can be set in MediaWiki:Sitenotice_id a number other then the current ID-number. Ad one digit or use a random number. Translate MediaWiki:Sitenotice_close for the “close” link.
Reminder; if the site notice shown to the anonymous users must be the same as for the registered users then you can keep MediaWiki:Anonnotice empty. Then MediaWiki:Sitenotice will also be used for anonymous visitors.
- [Oversight] – this is an technical function that can be used to censor the history of an article. The difference with a normal dentition is that there is no undo like for the deletion function. When used, it is also no longer visible for sysops.. It is actually a function to hide things that also the sysops are not supposed to see anymore. Using this function to hide an edit is more user friendly if you are a sysop; you can hide a specific version without deleting and restoring the article like you must do as an sysop to hide a version. It is in use on the English Wikipedia. It is now technically possible for a steward to grant “oversight” status to any user on any WMF-project. Discussion is now in process about who can be trusted with this function.
