Suggestion: e-brake on pageswap if there's a previous move <X minutes/hours ago[edit]

This seldom happens, but occasionally pagemovers would inadvertently, unknowingly, race each other in swapping the same page while processing the RM/TR queue. My most recent encounter was with Our Extended Play where @Doomsdayer520 and I were swapping the same page within second of each other. I wonder if it is possible to have the script to check for prior recent moves, for pagemovers to either be warned or check again if the prior move was of a pageswap of similar nature. – robertsky (talk) 05:02, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This has indeed happened to me a few times. As for the recent mishap that Robertsky described above, I noticed in the page histories that he and I were both working on it at the same time, with the page titles swapping back and forth in quite the bizarre fashion. I sent him a quick message at his Talk page, volunteering to step back and allowing him to finish the operation. We worked it out with no problem, but I can imagine other cases in which this would lead to a huge mess of incorrect page titles, which is exactly what we're trying to fix in the first place. ---DOOMSDAYER520 (TALK|CONTRIBS) 14:44, 14 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Doomsdayer520 and Robertsky, I'll play around in the sandbox to see how I can implement this without adding too much overhead (as you said, it's a pretty rare event). I'll probably just add a warning message if the source page has been moved within a certain time period (the API only lets you pull the move log for 1 page at a time, and I'd rather not add an extra API call). Any suggestions on how far back I should look? 1 day? 1 hour? 5 minutes? --Ahecht (TALK

thanks. given the RM/TR queue is worked on multiple times a day the request being cleared out almost immediately, an hour is more than sufficient. – robertsky (talk) 05:39, 16 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's what I already implemented in the Sandbox version. Feel free to try it out, and I'll probably copy it over to the main script in a week or so. --Ahecht (TALK
