Script modificationEdit

I've edited your reply-link.js script here to not reload the page. Instead it retrieves the new section content via ajax. Could you please test this version. It works intermittently for me and I am not sure why. --Gryllida (talk) 01:13, 29 May 2019 (UTC)

Please check this issue and also that one in afch. If you do not have time to implement any of this then guidance about how to do it would be most appreciated, as I have a beginner knowledge of JavaScript. Gryllida (talk) 00:40, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

The wmflabs.org servers have been experiencing problems the last days, so that might have caused it. Regards SoWhy 14:13, 31 May 2019 (UTC)


Server glitches makes sense. I wonder if it's browser specific. I just changed computers to check this, and it doesn't work for me on either computer. Both computers use Firefox 67.0 (64-bit) Although, until yesterday, I never had an issue pulling this up. — Maile (talk) 14:18, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Scripts++ Newsletter – Issue 6Edit

Administrators' newsletter – June 2019Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2019).

  Administrator changes

  AndonicConsumed CrustaceanEnigmamanEuryalusEWS23HereToHelpNv8200paPeripitusStringTheory11Vejvančický

  CheckUser changes

  Ivanvector

  Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

  Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

AFCRHS.jsEdit

Project page was moved to Wikipedia:Articles for creation/Redirects and categories, could you update the script? Thanks, Sam Sailor 06:32, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

cv-revdelEdit

...should fail gracefully, given an error, or do something when encountering the spam blacklist. I tried to add a rd1 tag to a page, and one of the sources tripped the blacklist. Rather than closing, giving an error, or doing anything, the script just remained in the same state, except that it didn't add the actual tag. See [1]. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 01:22, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Had such a case today with Italian Islands of the Aegean. Manually trying to add {{copyvio-revdel}} with the first URL from this case brought up MediaWiki:Spamprotectiontext. Sam Sailor 06:15, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

cv-revdelEdit

Hey, the revdel script is not allowing me to select diffs. This is happening across all articles. I have tried to bypass my cache. I have also tried Safari and Chrome and see no applicable errors in console. I have also turned all of my other scripts off to test for interactions. 19:03, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Tweak to bag bot sortingEdit

[3] This would allow better sorting of bot ops in the table, rather than have 'none' in the middle of the sort. See [4] for how that would affect the table. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 16:41, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

It would also be nice to have usernames linked. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 21:06, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Also, there is an issue with headers with links with a leading : in them. The current TOC has
instead of

Filter Pending AfC Submissions for untagged onesEdit

Hi! Could you add a filter for Pending AfC Submissions to only show untagged ones (no WikiProjects), so one would have easier time going through the list specifically for tagging them for other to find later. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 09:19, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

Hellknowz, I think your idea is good, but I'm a bit worried (rationally or not :p) about cluttering up the interface. Would User:SD0001/draft-sort-burst possibly work as an alternative? Let me know if you still want this to be added, and I might make a toollabs:yabbr mode for this or something. (Or just add the checkbox.) Enterprisey (talk!) 21:11, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
Oh cool, I didn't know burst-sort script existed. I tried it and it looks good. Unfortunately, it lacks the features of bigger scripts like Rater, such as task force tagging or special parameters like "living" for bios. Talk page is also not necessarily empty for untagged drafts. In short, I would prefer to use a different script for tagging. But it's totally on point otherwise. May be a link to the script could be added at the bottom?
Anyway, my own reasoning for having a checkbox in the main list is that I can't find topics by name that I am interested in and know enough about to review after I ran out of tagged pages for relevant projects. The time it takes to find an AfC I can review is almost more than reviewing itself. I can see when something is yet another bio or village in India and skip it. But I can also guess that "Space Cadet 3000" is likely a video game. Random tagging isn't really appealing to me and often I have no idea what project(s) something belongs to.
I think the UI can easily support more checkboxes and such. Editors who review AfCs are not new to Wikipedia. I imagine people using Labs tools for this are used to software tools. Given the number of AfCs, I think any filtering to accommodate more specific reviewing is good. Even if it's hidden by default behind a foldout or something.
On a relevant note, I am planning to add AfCs to article alerts, and properly-tagged banners is a requirement to have the pages reported. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 09:03, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
"properly-tagged banners" here meaning "drafts properly tagged by banners" Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 21:20, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
Alright, should be updated with the new checkbox next time the update script runs, which will be at about 10:20 UTC. Enterprisey (talk!) 09:39, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Hellknowz: small hiccup, but now we're in business! Check it out. Enterprisey (talk!) 11:09, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
So I wasn't crazy then, there was an issue with the checkboxes earlier. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 11:11, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Looks great! Now if only the detection was always correct :) A bunch of pages listed as untagged actually have project banners. For example, Draft talk:Agritask, Draft talk:UFC Now, Draft talk:Corey Arnold, Draft talk:Musa Arfakiana, etc. I couldn't find any pattern of why they aren't detected when I was looking through the list before. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 12:52, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Hellknowz, the tool uses User:Enterprisey/ibx-wproj-map.js as the way to determine which banners and infoboxes are owned by which projects, so if a project isn't in there the tool won't know about it. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:04, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
Why not just look for which templates are on the page, and follow any directs, and see if the string WikiProject appears in them? Wouldn't work for the non-standard ones like {{maths rating}}, but it would work for >99% of the rest. Your list could then be a backup/failsafe for the cornercases. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 01:06, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
I know of five WikiProject banners that don't have the word WikiProject in their template names: {{Alphabet Task Force}}; {{Maths banner}}; {{Wikipedia Help Project}}; {{Women's Classical Committee}}; and {{WP1.0}} - there may be others. Whatever their publically-facing name, most WikiProject banners have {{WPBannerMeta}} as the second (or third, if it's a wrapper like {{WikiProject Mississippi}}) layer inward - I know of four that don't, these are listed at Template:WPBannerMeta/Conversion. Note that the maths people have two distinct banners, one for articles only and one for everything else. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 11:55, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Kyoto Animation arson attackEdit

I re-instated the info about why the names of the deceased have yet to be released. In my opinion it doesn't need a time stamp as the information is still true that the victims haven't been identified yet. - Knowledgekid87 (talk) 13:29, 22 July 2019 (UTC)

@Knowledgekid87: - to sneak in an answer, time stamps are wanted for edits, as at some stage it won't be correct. That's fine if the editor always immediately appeared and updated, but that's not always the case. As such, it's helpful to add it in so that, in the event it's not updated, readers can know "ok that was the case 4 weeks ago, but might not be now" Nosebagbear (talk) 12:40, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

Query re Articles you contributed to have been nominated for Did You KnowEdit

Hi, re this edit - why were Whispyhistory (talk · contribs) and Philafrenzy (talk · contribs) not also informed? They were informed about other DYKs in the same bot run (Philafrenzy, Whispyhistory), and Template:Did you know nominations/Challacombe scale names both of them before myself. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:47, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

Will investigate. Off the top of my head, if the bot thinks their talk pages already link to the article or nomination page, or if they were notified in the past, no notification will be sent. (Probably doesn't apply here, though.) Enterprisey (talk!) 23:06, 27 July 2019 (UTC)

RM Stats tool broken?Edit

It seems like when I try to do any lookup at https://tools.wmflabs.org/rm-stats/ I get a 500 error (or sometimes a blank 200 response, then a 500 on subsequent refreshes). I poked around the logs at /data/project/rm-stats but didn't see any obvious explanation - actually I didn't see any log entries since May 2019, which is weird. Anyways, just thought I'd let you know.

Also, I noticed your tool because I was looking for my own tool (https://tools.wmflabs.org/rmstats/) in a directory, and realized I had accidentally semi-plagiarized another tool's name. If that's a problem for you, let me know, and I can look into renaming my tool to something that's less likely to get confused with yours. Colin M (talk) 17:39, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

  Guideline and policy news

  Arbitration

  Miscellaneous

  • Following a research project on masking IP addresses, the Foundation is starting a new project to improve the privacy of IP editors. The result of this project may significantly change administrative and counter-vandalism workflows. The project is in the very early stages of discussions and there is no concrete plan yet. Admins and the broader community are encouraged to leave feedback on the talk page.
  • The new page reviewer right is bundled with the admin tool set. Many admins regularly help out at Special:NewPagesFeed, but they may not be aware of improvements, changes, and new tools for the Curation system. Stay up to date by subscribing here to the NPP newsletter that appears every two months, and/or putting the reviewers' talk page on your watchlist.

    Since the introduction of temporary user rights, it is becoming more usual to accord the New Page Reviewer right on a probationary period of 3 to 6 months in the first instance. This avoids rights removal for inactivity at a later stage and enables a review of their work before according the right on a permanent basis.

About WP:DEFCON taggingEdit

Heya Enterprisey! I've looked more into IFTTT's "New edit with hashtag" feature, and I'm under the impression that it looks for literal hashtags in the edit summary, as https://hashtags.wmflabs.org/ looks for edits with hashtags in the edit summary, and as WP:HASHTAG explains. It'd be a great help if you could add hashtags, like #DEFCON1, to Enterprisey's edit summary on WP:DEFCON, so I could make a notification using IFTTT. Thanks for taking time out of your day to help someone, and possibly several others out! andritolion (talk) 16:16, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

AFD statsEdit

Right now the AFD stats page for me outputs "The remaining 133 pages had no discernible vote by this user." but does not indicate which pages those are. Could a list of pages be added which were processed but for which the bot said "nope, don't see anything cool here"? And/or a list of specific edits made in each. Could be a "see this other page for additional details" kind of thing, kind of like how xtools works. --Izno (talk) 18:43, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

I'd second this. It would be a nice feature to have. --Ahecht (TALK

@Izno: You might want to try my fork of AFDstats at https://tools.wmflabs.org/ahechtbot/afdstats.py?name=Izno. It detects votes in a few extra situations that the main version doesn't, but more importantly it will show "undetermined" votes in the list (these tended to be mostly "Move" votes in my case) and there is a "Show pages without detected votes" link to show all the AfD pages where no vote was detected. --Ahecht (TALK

Bots Newsletter, August 2019Edit

Bots Newsletter, August 2019

Greetings!

Here is the 7th issue of the Bots Newsletter, a lot happened since last year's newsletter! You can subscribe/unsubscribe from future newsletters by adding/removing your name from this list.

Highlights for this newsletter include:

ARBCOM
  • Nothing of note happened. Just like we like it.
BAG

BAG members are expected to be active on Wikipedia to have their finger on the pulse of the community. After two years without any bot-related activity (such as posting on bot-related pages, posting on a bot's talk page, or operating a bot), BAG members will be retired from BAG following a one-week notice. Retired members can re-apply for BAG membership as normal if they wish to rejoin the BAG.

We thank former members for their service and wish Madman a happy retirement. We note that Madman and BU Rob13 were not inactive and could resume their BAG positions if they so wished, should their retirements happens to be temporary.

BOTDICT

Two new entries feature in the bots dictionary

BOTPOL
  • Activity requirements: BAG members now have an activity requirement. The requirements are very light, one only needs to be involved in a bot-related area at some point within the last two years. For purpose of meeting these requirements, discussing a bot-related matter anywhere on Wikipedia counts, as does operating a bot (RFC).
  • Copyvio flag: Bot accounts may be additionally marked by a bureaucrat upon BAG request as being in the "copyviobot" user group on Wikipedia. This flag allows using the API to add metadata to edits for use in the New pages feed (discussion). There is currently 1 bot using this functionality.
  • Mass creation: The restriction on mass-creation (semi-automated or automated) was extended from articles, to all content-pages. There are subtleties, but content here broadly means whatever a reader could land on when browsing the mainspace in normal circumstances (e.g. Mainspace, Books, most Categories, Portals, ...). There is also a warning that WP:MEATBOT still applies in other areas (e.g. Redirects, Wikipedia namespace, Help, maintenance categories, ...) not explicitely covered by WP:MASSCREATION.
BOTREQs and BRFAs

As of writing, we have...

  • 20 active BOTREQs, please help if you can!
  • 14 open BRFAs and 1 BRFA in need of BAG attention (see live status).
  • In 2018, 96 bot task were approved. An AWB search shows approximately 29 were withdrawn/expired, and 6 were denied.
  • Since the start of 2019, 97 bot task were approved. Logs show 15 were withdrawn/expired, and 15 were denied.
  • 10 inactive bots have been deflagged (see discussion). 5 other bots have been deflagged per operator requests or similar (see discussion).
New things
Other discussions

These are some of the discussions that happened / are still happening since the last Bots Newsletter. Many are stale, but some are still active.

Add a few WikiProjects to AFCH fieldEdit

Would you add a few active WikiProjects to the choices available in the AFCH acceptance field where reviewers add projects? Namely:

  • American Open Wheel Racing
  • Anime and manga
  • Classical music
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Human–Computer Interaction
  • Newspapers
  • Translation studies
  • Women writers

Thanks. --Worldbruce (talk) 16:32, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

This should really be dynamically supporting every non-redirect Template:WikiProject ... banner, possibly excluding those from Category:Inactive WikiProjects. If a dynamic listing can't be had, then from a daily/weekly/monthly-updated list. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 17:07, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
+1 to some sort of automatic update. Maintaining this manually, while praiseworthy, is sub-optimal. -- RoySmith (talk) 01:45, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

XfD Stats malfunctiongEdit

I'm afraid to report that the tool is malfunctioning. The "user" and "number of discussions" text boxes work fine, but pulling up the results leads to a "ERR_SPDY_PROTOCOL_ERROR" error message on Google Chrome. Might be a domain issue in the code. ToThAc (talk) 00:52, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Welcome botEdit

Hello, Enterprisey! :)

I'm an admin at the Albanian Wikipedia and I tend to look after the technical side of the project. Recently I've been trying to find how to make a welcoming bot but instead I found many pages of past discussions about how that idea is kind of despised in the EnWiki community. I've read most of them and I know how the Welcoming Community here does the job better than bots and I really value you for that. Unfortunately we don't have that many of active users in our community and the advantages of having a welcoming bot far outweigh the disadvantages of it. We'd like a bot to be able to use the WikiLove extension to give out the welcoming template from it on new users' pages. As I mentioned early, we're a small community and I didn't have anyone to ask for advice on my homewiki about it so i tried asking at the EnWiki. I saw your username at the Bot Approvals Group and thought I'd give it a try. Can you help me with this situation? I should mention that I've never created or helped create a bot before so I'm not very informed on the subject but I'm willing to do what I can to help. - Klein Muçi (talk) 22:55, 10 September 2019 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – October 2019Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (September 2019).

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following a discussion, a new criterion for speedy category renaming was added: C2F: One eponymous article, which applies if the category contains only an eponymous article or media file, provided that the category has not otherwise been emptied shortly before the nomination. The default outcome is an upmerge to the parent categories.

  Technical news

  • As previously noted, tighter password requirements for Administrators were put in place last year. Wikipedia should now alert you if your password is less than 10 characters long and thus too short.

Hi there. I thought I'd stop by and thank you for your useful scripts. It's hard to remember how I ever managed without things like User:Enterprisey/script-installer, User:Enterprisey/cv-revdel or User:Enterprisey/diff-permalink, so thanks for putting all that hard. While I'm at it, a simple suggestion. Much like User:Enterprisey/sync-template-sandbox, how about a script that merges the sandbox back into the main after testing is finished? I find that I do that quite often when responding to {{edit template-protected}}. Best regards. --Muhandes (talk) 09:25, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

Muhandes, good idea! I'm wondering what sort of confirmation you'd want for this - I know that I certainly wouldn't want to accidentally overwrite a highly-used template this way. Maybe just the usual popup "confirm" box? Enterprisey (talk!) 16:13, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

RfA toolsEdit

Hello there Enterprisey, I just recently became aware of some of your tool work on wiki. It looks like you've worked on/replaced/repaired some of the ScottyWong tools. Is there perhaps a fix or replacement for this one? I did see the "voting pattern" one for RfA, but was interested in seeing how a single user voted over multiple RfAs. TY for all your great work - it's appreciated. — Ched (talk) 23:44, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

I remember there certainly used to be one (as in a version more recent than scottywong's). I thought it was in xtools, but I checked there and didn't see it. I put a few minutes into looking elsewhere but couldn't find anything. I would certainly be happy to make it myself if one can't be found, although I'm a bit busy IRL lately (...when is that ever not the case, haha) so we might have to delay a bit. That said, I'm going to try to get as much stuff out the door as possible before the upcoming WikiConference, so there's a good chance we'll have a tool like this by then.

Finding wikitext positions for Parsoid HTMLEdit

You said you were wondering if this is possible, so here's how:

  1. Fetch the Parsoid HTML, e.g. from https://en.wikipedia.org/api/rest_v1/page/html/The_Fighting_Temeraire/914474798. Note the revision ID and the "etag" HTTP header value.
  2. Fetch the Parsoid data for your HTML output, e.g. from https://en.wikipedia.org/api/rest_v1/page/data-parsoid/The_Fighting_Temeraire/914474798/c26208b0-f29e-11e9-b2c6-a5178ebb33fb (using the revision ID and the etag – you need to pass the etag to request the data for a particular parse result, since changes in transcluded templates affect the output).
  3. Fetch the wikitext source, e.g. from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fighting_Temeraire?oldid=914474798&action=raw (or the API)

Then, to find the wikitext position corresponding to a piece of the HTML output, for example this link in the second paragraph:

<a rel="mw:WikiLink" href="./HMS_Temeraire_(1798)" title="HMS Temeraire (1798)" id="mwEg">HMS <i id="mwEw">Temeraire</i></a>

…you take its id and take the JSON data for it, for this example it's:

"mwEg":{"stx":"piped","a":{"href":"./HMS_Temeraire_(1798)"},"sa":{"href":"HMS Temeraire (1798)"},"dsr":[906,948,23,2]}

The dsr numbers (I think this stands for "data source range") are the wikitext positions of the beginning and end of the markup, and the lengths of the opening and closing "tag". In this example, the characters 906 to 948 in the wikitext are:

[[HMS Temeraire (1798)|HMS ''Temeraire'']]

…where the 23-character opening tag is [[HMS Temeraire (1798)| and the 2-character closing tag is ]].

Some of the other properties are documented at mw:Parsoid/Internals/data-parsoid (which also says that this is internal and subject to change at any time, but AFAIK it hasn't changed much since Parsoid was invented).

I hope this helps, or is at least interesting :) Matma Rex talk 18:37, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

AFD StatsEdit

I've been going through and trying to clear up the UNDETERMINED lines from my AfD stats, and I have a couple of suggestions for afdstats.py that would've cleared up most of them (and undoubtably also clear up many more discussions I wasn't involved in):

  • Change lines 325 and 364 from "speedy delete" to "speedy delet" to correctly parse the phrase "speedy deletion"
  • Change the regex in line 348 to "The result (?:of the debate )?was(?:.*?\n?.*?)(?:'{3}?)(.*?)(?:'{3}?)" (or something like that, regexes aren't my strong point) to catch the many pages where there is a carriage return before the bolded decision.

Possible issue with AFCH scriptEdit

When I used AFCH to review Draft:Canary Connect Inc., it seems that the review notification went to DESiegel, who just helped the new editor submit the article by subst'ing the template, rather than the author of the draft.

About the AfD stats toolEdit

Also ping User:Σ. I used [17] (awesome, thanks), but there is one element I find problematic. I often nominate things for deletion, but I am totally fine with merge outcome. Yet the tool treats 'merge' just as 'keep', they are both colored red (for a deletion proposal). From my perspective, this is incorrect. Sometimes nominators, including myself, will even say that merge is one of the alternatives to consider in our nominations. The point is that the current stats suggest that for example AfDs I nominated closed as merge are 'failures' just as those closed as keeps. I'd argue that they should be considered successes, green, or at the very least get their own color and should not be counted together with other groups. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:46, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Pet Scan and Cat-a-lotEdit

Just to follow up from our brief discussion a couple of weeks ago in Boston, regarding interaction between Pet Scan and Cat-a-lot, or rather the lack thereof (in case you're interested in tinkering with it). The problem I'm having can be seen here. I just created the Wikiquote category for Guggenheim Fellows, and Pet Scan will tell me that there are 580 English Wikipedia articles in the same category, which also have corresponding Wikiquote articles. Problem is, to reconcile them, I've got to manually open all 580 Wikiquote articles and add Category:Guggenheim Fellows.

All told, there is probably easily upward of a million edits that need to be performed to reconcile the categorization of the English Wikipedia and the English Wikiquote, which obviously is just impossible to do manually. But if I could use Cat-a-lot, and just highlight all 580 articles in the Pet Scan output, and add categories with semi-automation, it could be done fairly easily. Been asking around for about a year now, and AFAIK, there is no current way to do this. GMGtalk 16:43, 19 November 2019 (UTC)

I have caused MusikAnimal some grief...Edit

... and I have you to thank for it.

In delsort, right now the script selects an insertion point in the skin directly (it might reasonably instead be some sort of modal but I don't know how to do that myself :), a point in the skin which not all skins have (cough Timeless cough). Would you mind if you fixed that? I think the preferable way would be to target #contentSub instead of #jump-to-nav, but you could also guard against timeless using an if-else on the skin to insert it in Timeless in the else statement (since we Timeless are few and far between).

Entirely untested, but my button hasn't worked for a year now and I'd like it to. :( --Izno (talk) 22:58, 22 November 2019 (UTC)

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!Edit

Hello,

Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to google-code-in-admins@lists.wikimedia.org, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

Poached!Edit

Hey, Enterprisey. I was going over your dashboard and decided to poach one of your script ideas. You can cross this one off the list:

  • A user script so that whenever you click on a "hist" link in a user contribs page, the resulting page history highlights all contributions by that user (also has form on history page to perform such highlighting)

Hope you don't mind. If you're interested, here's the source. Also I suck at names. Regards, GUYWAN ( t · c ) 21:17, 2 December 2019 (UTC)

AFCRHS.js (2)Edit

Hello. When creating the talk pages for created redirects in non-article space, the script does not create the talk page as the script only appends "Talk:" before the requested title (e.g. this would mean "Talk:Template:" which is a bad title). Could you change the JavaScript to handle creating talk pages for non-article space redirects? Thanks for the great tool, Dreamy Jazz 🎷 talk to me | my contributions 20:06, 5 December 2019 (UTC)

EnterpriseyBot 10Edit

I think there's an issue with this task. There are redirects that I tagged with {{R from related topic}} in 2017 whose talk pages are still marked as stubs, e.g., Green syndicalism (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). Let me know what I can do to help? (Last discussion, for reference) czar 08:28, 1 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Enterprisey, should I bring this task back to the bot requests board? Between this thread and the last one, it appears that this has been running with issues for a very long time. I just received a flurry of manual edits correcting some of the instances that were waiting for bot edits. If you don't have time to look into/maintain this task, please just let me know so I can find another way to address it. czar 15:04, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
As a side note, I have found that this is too big a task for Python (or, at least, I'm not good enough at handling lots of data in Python). So, I'll be rewriting the bot in Rust shortly, after which it should be back to running regularly. Enterprisey (talk!) 08:26, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
Lol, look at the excuses people have for switching to Rust these days! SD0001 (talk) 15:44, 7 April 2020 (UTC)
A fellow can only get so many TypeErrors before he snaps and rewrites 2500 lines of Python in Rust :)
I have rewritten the task in Rust, and it seems to be running fine on toolforge (using approximately infinity times less memory!). I'll have it do a few articles daily, and then ramp it up later. Enterprisey (talk!) 21:54, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
Czar, the bot has been running for the past couple of days and everything looks fine. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:06, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
Also, how should the bot behave when a project's banner isn't configured to auto-assess? Right now, I've been manually reverting the bot's edits. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:10, 17 April 2020 (UTC)
Nice—looking forward to it ramping up! For context on that last question, is the idea that the task finds redirects and strips the WikiProject banner class as a courtesy but some banners are not equipped to auto-assess? In those cases, I've traditionally considered it better to have no class param than to leave "stub" or whatever was left behind (since the article is no longer a stub but a redirect). But most often those are cases of the WikiProject not handling the "Redirect" class in their banner, not that it has auto-assess off altogether. If indeed it's a matter of specific banners not supporting auto-assessment, I imagine the most complete way to handle is to hard-code "Redirect" as the banner class param, but that strikes me as overkill when simply removing the param is sufficient. czar 03:40, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
Any WikiProject banner that is built around {{WPBannerMeta}} (and there are only four that are not) will, if |class= is blank or absent, auto-assess the talk page of a redirect as Redirect-Class; and if the banner concerned isn't set up for that, will instead use NA-Class. The autodetection is built into {{Class mask}}, as is the conversion to NA where applicable.
Of the four WikiProject banners that aren't built around {{WPBannerMeta}}, only {{WikiProject U.S. Roads}} will behave like a "normal" WikiProject banner (because it also uses {{class mask}}); the other three don't autodetect, and only treat the page as Redirect-Class if fed an explicit |class=redirect, not the shorter forms |class=redir or |class=red that other banners allow.
In summary: for {{WikiProject Anime and manga}}, {{Maths rating}} and {{WikiProject Military history}} (and redirects to those three), set |class=redirect; for any other banner, leave |class= blank or omit it entirely. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:31, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
Redrose64, thank you for the information! What about {{WikiProject Ships}}, which doesn't autoassess despite using WPBannerMeta? Are there any other WPBannerMeta banners that won't auto-assess in this way? Enterprisey (talk!) 20:51, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
Ooof, I missed that one. Ships uses WPBannerMeta but, for some reason, bypasses the standard {{class mask}} template by using a very non-standard custom class mask, {{WikiProject Ships/class}}, which unlike other custom class masks (such as {{WikiProject Trains/class}}), is not built as a wrapper for {{class mask}}. So {{WikiProject Ships}} will require an explicit |class=red, |class=redir or |class=redirect. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:26, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
  • How often should this bot be cycling through tagged redirects? Would once a month (or more often) be reasonable? I'm still monitoring redirects tagged in 2017 as {{R to list entry}} that have not been scanned by the bot. czar 17:45, 31 May 2020 (UTC)

Bot QuestionEdit

Hi Enterprisey,

I saw your name listed at WP:BAG as being open to answering queries about bots.

I just made this edit to the carnitine article. The prefixes L- and d- are used as part of chemical naming for enantiomers of amino acids, sugars, and various other compounds. The convention in naming is that they appear as small caps rather than as full size letters, sometimes also in parentheses (ie as (l-proline or d-proline for the amino acid proline). We similarly have the convention of italicising E, Z, R, and S in names like (E)-stilbene or (Z)-Stilbene or for names like (R)-thalidomide and (S)-thalidomide in the thalidomide article. There are also name fragments like fac, mer, cis, and trans that are italicised when stand alone. The letters don't necessarily stand alone – for example, meso-tartaric acid is (2R,3S)-tartaric acid or (2R,3S)-2,3-dihydroxybutanedioic acid.

My questions (as a chemist who knows almost nothing about how to program a bot, although who did do programming 20+ years ago):

  1. Would it be possible and practical for a bot to go through article space and change all the L- and D- to {{sm|l}}- and {{sm|d}}- without changing the cases where it is not part of a name (like this mistaken change that I made to a file name), while handling names like acetyl-L-carnitine becoming acetyl-l-carnitine, recognising that a wikilink like [[Glycine propionyl-L-carnitine]] becomes [[Glycine propionyl-L-carnitine|Glycine propionyl-{{sm|L}}-carnitine]], recognising the change in case for the start of a sentence (L-proline ... should be l-Proline ...) and while changing names in references byt not producing the reference errors that I just did?
  2. Is there a bot that already does this sort of thing, to your knowledge?
  3. If it is practicable, could it be extended to other naming corrections like the ones mentioned above?
  4. Is there another editor who I would be advised to ask / speak with?

I can give a list of examples (in cooperation with the Chemistry and / or Chemicals WikiProjects) if that would help, but I thought a general question was best first.

Thanks for your time!

  • Can you take a look at User:GoldenRing#Generate_Diffs and update its fork in your user page. It is very helpful and it stopped working for some reasons. I posted on GR's talk but looks like he is not editing nowadays. --DBigXray 17:08, 19 January 2020 (UTC)

Administrators' newsletter – February 2020Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (January 2020).

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following a request for comment, partial blocks are now enabled on the English Wikipedia. This functionality allows administrators to block users from editing specific pages or namespaces rather than the entire site. A draft policy is being workshopped at Wikipedia:Partial blocks.
  • The request for comment seeking the community's sentiment for a binding desysop procedure closed with wide-spread support for an alternative desysoping procedure based on community input. No proposed process received consensus.

  Technical news

  • Twinkle now supports partial blocking. There is a small checkbox that toggles the "partial" status for both blocks and templating. There is currently one template: {{uw-pblock}}.
  • When trying to move a page, if the target title already exists then a warning message is shown. The warning message will now include a link to the target title. [18]

  Arbitration

  • Following a recent arbitration case, the Arbitration Committee reminded administrators that checkuser and oversight blocks must not be reversed or modified without prior consultation with the checkuser or oversighter who placed the block, the respective functionary team, or the Arbitration Committee.

AfDStats doesn't count my votesEdit

Hi, Enterprisey, I am WikiAviator. Today, I've voted for numerous AfD discussions such as [19]. However, it didn't show up on AfD Stats. I checked the AfD pages and found no problem with spelling and all votes are bolded (i.e. Redirect and Delete) and refreshed the page several times. After about an hour, I force-stopped my browser and loaded the AfDStats webpage again. Nothing worked and only my old votes were shown. May I know what is the problem and would you kindly resolve it or give me some suggestions? This AfD Stats function is very important to me as an indicator of my understanding to deletion guidelines and to let me assess when should I apply for New Page Reviewer and Articles for Creation.

Administrators' newsletter – March 2020Edit

News and updates for administrators from the past month (February 2020).

  Guideline and policy news

  • Following an RfC, the blocking policy was changed to state that sysops must not undo or alter CheckUser or Oversight blocks, rather than should not.
  • A request for comment confirmed that sandboxes of established but inactive editors may not be blanked due solely to inactivity.

  Technical news

  • Following a discussion, Twinkle's default CSD behavior will soon change, most likely this week. After the change, Twinkle will default to "tagging mode" if there is no CSD tag present, and default to "deletion mode" if there is a CSD tag present. You will be able to always default to "deletion mode" (the current behavior) using your Twinkle preferences.

BRFA thoughtEdit

Just a thought, be lazy like me and let the bots handle the moving/removing/relisting of completed BRFAs; I almost missed your latest approval (and the point about the bot flag) because it wasn't transcluded properly onto the "approved" list. Primefac (talk) 12:04, 6 March 2020 (UTC) (please ping on reply)

Primefac, thanks, good to know! Does that mean that step #4 ("Does the bot need a flag?") of User:SQL/How to close a BRFA should be removed? Enterprisey (talk!) 04:46, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
I don't think it needs to be removed, because the directions do say that #3-4 will be done by the bot. Maybe move that line further down to make it more obvious... Primefac (talk) 14:15, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

New NodeJS bot frameworkEdit

Hi, while I know that you don't use Node.js for your bots, I thought you still might be interested in a new bot framework that I created - mwn. It's mostly written on the MWBot as a foundation with some enhancements copied from mw.Api, some original improvements like automated retries on maxlag and expired token errors, and finally I bundled in my own libApi.js functions for bulk processing tasks. It's intended to cover the limitations of the existing nodejs bot libraries - which have few features and use outdated JS techniques. Your contributions would be very much appreciated! See issues for a list of open tasks if you like. Regards, SD0001 (talk) 20:06, 8 April 2020 (UTC)

any way to scp files over to toolforge? I tried scp'ing them to login.tools.wmflabs.org but of course that didn't workEdit

You asked "any way to scp files over to toolforge? I tried scp'ing them to login.tools.wmflabs.org but of course that didn't work"

Do you mean to an instance that is not tools.wmflabs? Not certain how you are accessing, but have you glanced at wikitech:Help:Access to Cloud VPS instances with PuTTY and WinSCP which has some configurations that may guide you. — billinghurst sDrewth 07:28, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Yeah, the thing was I had only tried doing scp during the recent brief Toolforge outage (which would certainly do it!). I tried it recently with login.tools.wmflabs.org and of course it worked fine. Thanks for the helpful link! Enterprisey (talk!) 19:08, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Hey Enterprisey,

On non-English wikis it is populating non-English version of site name (for eg. Per [[:ويكيبيديا:ar:Special:Permalink/46130020|وب:تام]] on arwiki). Because of this link breaks. If possible, can all of them have English version of site name or just hard code it to w as most of them are wikipedias. Thanks for your awesome work.‐‐1997kB (talk) 09:35, 17 April 2020 (UTC)

Yes, working great. Thanks!‐‐1997kB (talk) 06:39, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

Hey again, sorry for not checking carefully. It now get everything in English but sequence is not right. For eg.

Per [[:en:wikipedia:Special:Permalink/951634818|request on enwiki]] (simple) => Per request on enwiki (simple)

but it should be

Per [[:wikipedia:en:Special:Permalink/951634818|request on enwiki]] (simple) => Per request on enwiki (simple)

Now sequence is right but having wikipedia in the link makes it not work correctly, only w works.

Per [[:w:en:Special:Permalink/951634818|request on enwiki]] (simple) => Per request on enwiki (simple)

Also on metawiki it is generating

EnterpriseyBot malfunctioningEdit

We've been having to manually update {{vandalism information}} as of late (the bot is/was inaccurately reporting low RPM when it's actually high at the time, and occasionally it goes hours without updating). As having to go in and manually update it is tedious, I think I speak for many when I say the errors should be fixed ASAP. Kirbanzo (userpage - talk - contribs) 01:21, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Fixed; I wasn't checking the edit summaries in a case-insensitive way - that is, the bot would only recognize "undid", not "Undid". Enterprisey (talk!) 22:18, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

User:Enterprisey/unblock-review.jsEdit

Just tried to decline an unblock request and this happened. The script hasn't changed since 2019, but then again I don't know when the last time was I tried to decline an unblock request. Primefac (talk) 02:34, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

Motorola 68000Edit

This is to report a cyberstalking editor, judging fromhis edit history, who reverted all edits on the Motorola 68000 page made by me on the 25th. Zac67 claimed to have changed just "1" of my edits, yet failed to identify which edit of mine was "unhelpful" - let alone why. 205.166.94.16 (talk) 08:04, 28 April 2020 (UTC) another Zac67 victim

Ed6767, nah, it was a bug in the script I'm using. I have fixed the bug and it shouldn't happen again. Good spot, though. Enterprisey (talk!) 01:02, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying! Gl with the script. Ed6767 (talk) 01:05, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Hate to bring this up againEdit

I mean this with all due respects, but still, I feel I need to scrutinise your blocks as they seem overly harsh. Somebody getting a 2 week ban for that? Yet vandals get 31hrs, as they should, as the purpose of a block is to prevent disruptive editing when that person hadn't even broken the 3rr yet, nor did they receive proper warnings past a Level 1 good faith. If again, there's something I'm missing please say. You're an admin so can probably see way more about this user than I can. Thanks in advance! Ed6767 (talk) 02:14, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

Ed6767, sure, sounds sensible. I discussed this with someone more familiar with various methods of IP-hopping and 31 hours would probably work, so I'll reduce all the blocks to that. I had 2 weeks originally to discourage re-use of IPs for this attack; probably just one week would've worked. Almost all of the IPs had no prior use on here that I could see, otherwise two weeks would've definitely been overboard. Enterprisey (talk!) 02:20, 6 May 2020 (UTC)
Tysm for clarifying! Sorry if I'm being annoying, I'm still learning all the ins and outs really, I've only been editing mainly for a month. Seeming it's featured, I'll probably propose page protection if it's vandalised again. Again, thanks for clarifying. Ed6767 (talk) 02:23, 6 May 2020 (UTC)

AFCH buggerino :(Edit

So while reviewing drafts in AFCH I discovered a bug that when there is a notice (e.g. There is a comment with 30 characters of more) then none of the buttons work (accept, decline, comment, and the preferences button).

The buttons to "clean up/tag article for review" still work though, and removing the reason for the notice or tagging it as under review get rid of the bug. dibbydib boop or snoop 05:26, 11 May 2020 (UTC)

JoshGaming2003Edit

It is odd/disturbing that this user came to continue the blanking of that IP talk page after the IP had been blocked and lost talk page access for edit-warring over said talk page. JoshGaming2003 created his account exactly upon the expiration of the block. It almost leads me to wonder if JoshGaming2003 is a sockpuppet of the IP. He is WP:PRECOCIOUS too, with the edit filter requests. Elizium23 (talk) 04:05, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

TFA vandal recycled IPsEdit

Special:Contributions/104.172.108.167 appears to have been used very recently for the same purposes (they also vandalised the TFA of May 24th). Maybe longer blocks should be in order? Just saying. Cheers, RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 00:36, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

As a VPN is clearly being used, blocking that IP for longer would've just caused them to hop to a new one. The fallout is minimized with 31 hours - heck, a shorter period would probably work as well. On the other hand, assuming it's a peer-to-peer VPN, longer blocks might discourage people from participating in the VPN. But those IPs haven't edited too much otherwise, nor is such a strategy likely to be within policy, so 31 hours sounds about right. Enterprisey (talk!) 00:41, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Many VPNs use open proxies that are blocked for long periods of times so it would not be a issue to block them for longer times since their edits need rev deletion and are seriously bad unless there is evidence that the IP is either not a proxy or a closed proxy 🌸 1.Ayana 🌸 (talk) 10:49, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
