I wish to be able to edit in the MediaWiki namespace, in order to add useful editing gadgets to Wikispecies. I did this successfully, before this elevated level of permission was introduced (see for example MediaWiki:Gadget-HotCat / MediaWiki:Gadget-HotCat.js.

I need to be an Interface Admin in order to update badly formatted and/or outdated MediaWiki CSS- and JavaScript files. Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 10:36, 13 December 2019 (UTC)

Close as promoted. Permission set to expire automatically in a year. OhanaUnitedTalk page 00:51, 26 December 2019 (UTC)

  1. Yes, I've been using two factor authorisation (TFA) for all Wikimedia- and Phabricator logins since it was first officially implemented by Wikimedia (i.e. I did not fully trust nor use it during the initial 2016–2018 TFA beta-test period).
  2. As described by our Interface administrators guideline above: "The promotion to interface administrator is time-limited to one year, after which the user is automatically demoted." In other words the time-limit is set as part of granting the interface admin rights, and 365 days later the demotion is automatically handled by the MediaWiki software.
