Hi everyone!

I put together a global CheckUser policy and associated Access to non-public personal data policy that will lay the groundwork for us being able to give out CheckUser on the local wikis.

In short, the process will be:

  • Get these policies approved (about a week)
  • Have local discussions to modify existing local CheckUser policies, and vote on local CheckUsers (about a week)
  • Local CheckUsers will have to sign a confidentiality agreement (this is different than the Weird Gloop NDA) and provide proof they are at least 18 years of age.

Please share any questions or concerns here. Thanks. ʞooɔ 21:14, 17 June 2019 (UTC)


Support - Had my question answered in discord, but I'll put it here in case anyone else is curious:

Badassiel: if i'm reading right, local admin is an admin of n wiki, and being an admin of n wiki doesn't necessarily mean they are granted access to the information?
Cook: CheckUser is a thing kind on top of adminship
Cook: not all admins will get checkuser

It is with this information that I'm in support of these changes. Badassiel (talk) 21:58, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment - Seems reasonable ^^ I've tweaked/tidied-up the CheckUser policy a tad. Haven't looked at the other one so far (hence not immediately supporting with this message). On a related note, any reason "Access to nonpublic personal data policy" is not called "Access to private personal data policy"? - Rawny (talk) 23:41, 18 June 2019 (UTC)

I have been informed (by Miss Badass and Mr Suity from our legal department) that non-public and private have a legal distinction, so I'm merely hyphenating it - Rawny (talk) 21:33, 19 June 2019 (UTC)
I've tweaked the phrasing of the Access to non-public personal data policy too - Rawny (talk) 23:23, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Support - Seems like a pretty standard checkuser policy. svco4bY.png3Gf5N2F.png 14:54, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Closed - The proposed policy has been approved. cqm talk 23:36, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
