There was a thread about this in the list back in
January, but nothing
happened because of it. So I started an on-wiki proposal about this (which
was adding a certain edit count to the autoconfirmed threshold) at
. I hope that
everyone goes there and at least gives an opinion (and maybe this email will
actually make it to the list this time).
This poorly worded proposal strikes me as just more muddled instruction
creep that serves no useful purpose.
