  • With regards to the information about the password requirements for admins and users with other special privileges, is there a list of what user permissions are affected by this aside from admins? RegistryKey(RegEdit) 04:35, 5 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
    • RegistryKey: That item was actually inaccurate; the feature is now available in MediaWiki, but it hasn't been enabled for admins or other groups yet. There is more information at phab:T94774#1414868 and following comments. My apologies for the error. The other groups that will be affected include: Staff, Stewards, CheckUsers, Ombudsmen, and I imagine Oversighters as well at some point. Guillaume (WMF) (talk) 17:51, 6 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
