Summary0002601: It is possible to (attempt to) delete a tagreltb entry via URL hack
DescriptionDeleting a tagreltb entry is a surefire way to wreck havoc in the related tag. I don't know whether recreating the entry without database magic is even possible.

It is possible, by hacking the URL, to issue a del creq on tagreltb entities. While that is highly unlikely, and the offending user would certainly be made an example of, it is not outside the realm of imagination that a half-asleep mod might end up granting such a creq by pressing the wrong button or something.

Please add a check that halts the action and throws an error if the user attempts to issue a del creq on that specific table.

Example of such a creq in action, and of its results:
Steps To Reproduce

Testing should obviously be done on devint only, owing to the destructive potential of this issue.
TagsNo tags attached.

Also note in that devint creq in the creq header block, it says tag system but links the tag itself.

Should be a field called tag that links the tag itself (type in this case), then another field tag system that quotes the tag system (character in this case).

Which is a completely different thing and you're just asking baka to yell at you. :P

I'll add a feature request for that.

i don't see the issue. it creates a creq. if you grant that that is the mod's fault

Yes, and I'd like to not see it happen. But if you don't think the risk is enough to justify it, I can live with that.
