    Ballmedia

    Suppression is the act of redacting any log action/edit through means of the netsuppress user group on all Ballmedia wikis. It is used to temporarily hide potentially sensitive information from all users (excluding users with the deleterevision right). Depending on severity, most requests for suppression are automatically forwarded to Stewards for oversight though some may not if not severe. Across Ballmedia, suppression is a special right only usable by Network Consuls. It can be requested in private by contacting any Consul and requesting it.

    It should not be confused with Oversight which is a special right only usable by Miraheze Stewards.

    Valid cases for requesting suppression[edit | edit source]

    • A user has accidentally posted private information (image, address, name, etc.).
    • Information about a user was revealed without their consent.
    • An administrator disclosed too much information on a case.
    • Confidential information was disclosed accidentally.

    There may be more use cases for requesting suppression. If in doubt, please contact a Consul and they will assist you.

    Consuls should not abuse suppression to hide unfavorable information on them or if unjustified. If a Consul abuses the right, they are subject to immediate demotion.

    Availability[edit | edit source]

    Across Ballmedia wikis, the following rights are only granted to the netsupress group: deleterevision, deletelogentry, deletedtext and deletedhistory. Some wikis may have these rights assigned to local sysops within their default toolset.

    When needed, a Consul will assign these rights to themselves with the following log summary:

    • If redacting information on request: "Removing/redacting information per request pursuant to the network Suppression Policy. Consul action." (Removing/redacting information per request pursuant to the network [[mh:ballmedia:Suppression Policy|Suppression Policy]]. [[mh:ballmedia:Network Consuls|Consul]] action.)
    • If redacting information found by the consul themselves: "Removing/redacting information pursuant to the network Suppression Policy. Consul action." (Removing/redacting information pursuant to the network [[mh:ballmedia:Suppression Policy|Suppression Policy]]. [[mh:ballmedia:Network Consuls|Consul]] action.)
    • If checking logs: "Checking deleted logs in course of an investigation pursuant to the network Suppression Policy. Consul action." (Checking deleted logs in course of an investigation pursuant to the network [[mh:ballmedia:Suppression Policy|Suppression Policy]]. [[mh:ballmedia:Network Consuls|Consul]] action.)

    Once suppressed, the revision will look like this:
