I noticed a few patch diffs in the template mainspace (all named Template:PatchDiff/...). I'm pretty sure it's not common practice to store patch diffs in a wiki database and transclude them on the mainspace in this dimension. The latest diffs are from late 2013, so one can assume this practice has been given up?
In my honest opinion, Special:Nuke looks very promising without looking back. The diffs neither add any value to the overall patchlogs, nor anybody will ever dig through them to find worthy information (if there is).
I believe RJ stopped doing them because he didn't have the time. I would actually prefer we still had patchdiffs, no reason to remove the old ones... - Lemoncake(talk) 18:15, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Bureaucratic and administrative duties
Heads-up: This is a purely constructive advice! I have some long term experience as head admin at a medium sized wiki myself and I'd like to share some of my observations.
Blocking, protected pages and titles
Special:BlockList lists IPs that are blocked for an infinite amount of time. Most IPs change every 30 days at maximum and it sometimes happens that another user cannot edit the wiki because he got a banned IP. The chances are pretty low, but I already had the case.
That leaves User:Robjackson, who seems pretty busy. It's really recommended to put one of currently active admins in charge of a bureaucrat to edit admin and bot user groups. The alternative would be to grant the specific rights to revoke and grant the bot and admin status to all admins. The latter is independent from the right userrights, so the bureaucrats can still only be demoted by themselves.
I guess I could join, but so far, as an anonymous, I've been checking out my favourite heroes and making their pages more appealing. Also, cleaning up certain discussion pages sometimes.
