Faster than the speed limitEdit

Wikipedia:Page_mover#Increased_page_move_throttle has a speed limit. But the tool seems to hit the limit quite frequently, leading to dropped entries, that need to be collected and the tool need to be rerun. @Ahecht: Can this tool be made a slightly slower to agree with the server imposed limit, so that all the entries are handled. --Venkat TL (talk) 15:50, 16 April 2022 (UTC)

@Venkat TL I could've sworn that that script retrieved the rate limit and throttled itself, but I must've been thinking of one of my other scripts. I'll take a look. --Ahecht (TALK

@Ahecht Thanks for the reply. With a batch of 66 entries 3 dropped. 7 dropped in a batch of 160. Hope this helps you. Other than this, the tool works like a charm. Thanks for your efforts in sharing this. Venkat TL (talk) 21:26, 16 April 2022 (UTC)
@Venkat TL 7 out of 160 sounds a bit low. How long did that batch of 160 take to run? When I've tested it each move takes about 1/4 second, so I would use up my 16 moves in about 4 seconds and the next 224 would fail until the 60 seconds were up. Maybe if your computer or internet connection is slower you'd get more. In any case, I pushed a new version of the script that will retrieve your rate limit and throttle accordingly (so with the enwiki defaults, if you're moving more than 16 pages, it will move one every 4 seconds). --Ahecht (TALK

If not 7 it may be 10 or 12, I dont exactly remember, But certainly not more than 15 drops happened in that batch of 160. How long did it take to run, It is tough, as I was not keeping track of time. If it helps you, I would note the time and exact number of dropped entries next time I run the tool. Venkat TL (talk) 18:50, 17 April 2022 (UTC)
@Venkat TL: Next time you run the tool, if you open up your browser's console (usually ⇧ Shift+F12 to open developer tools, and then esc to open the console if it's not already open), it will display a time-stamped log of all its actions that you can copy and paste. I put in an option to bypass the rate limit if you want to do more testing. --Ahecht (TALK

Ok. I will follow these steps next time I am running the tool. I will respond here with the log. Venkat TL (talk) 19:18, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

the tool is broken, now it halts after successfully moving one page. The batch, apart from the first entry, remains unprocessed. Please revert back to previous version that worked. I was attempting the Category:Assembly constituencies of Gujarat as a batch. Venkat TL (talk) 11:14, 11 May 2022 (UTC)

@Venkat TL I fixed a potential bug. Try it again now, and if it still doesn't work send me the console logs. --Ahecht (TALK

@Ahecht it worked well without drops for the ones in Gujarat that remained. I am logging, will share if there are drops. So far none. thank you. Venkat TL (talk) 15:46, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
No drops faced so far. I think I have done around 200 already. This is resolved with your recent fixes. Venkat TL (talk) 17:42, 11 May 2022 (UTC)

Page move: SwapEdit

Hi Ahecht, I don't know if it is just me but I'm no longer seeing a "swap" link within "The page cannot be moved" error message using your pageswap.js script. Cheers Polyamorph (talk) 11:22, 26 April 2022 (UTC)

@Polyamorph Looks like this was caused by MediaWiki getting rid of the errorbox class. It should be fixed now. --Ahecht (TALK

@Venkat TL Thanks. Moving the talk really should be the default in the script the same way it is at Special:MovePage. --Ahecht (TALK

Yes, I used the feature in your tool. Strangely your moves left the page at old locations. May be you forgot. I asked you since you had moved those articles, let me know if you want me to move these talk pages for you. Venkat TL (talk) 15:44, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
@Venkat TL Yeah, I forgot to check it, but I went ahead and moved them now. I modified the script so it will make moving the talk the default now. --Ahecht (TALK

New Page Patrol newsletter May 2022Edit

 
New Page Review queue March 2022

Hello Ahecht,

At the time of the last newsletter (No.26, September 2021), the backlog was 'only' just over 6,000 articles. In the past six months, the backlog has reached nearly 16,000, a staggering level not seen in several years. A very small number of users had been doing the vast majority of the reviews. Due to "burn-out", we have recently lost most of this effort. Furthermore, several reviewers have been stripped of the user right for abuse of privilege and the articles they patrolled were put back in the queue.

Several discussions on the state of the process have taken place on the talk page, but there has been no action to make any changes. The project also lacks coordination since the "position" is vacant.

In the last 30 days, only 100 reviewers have made more than 8 patrols and only 50 have averaged one review a day. There are currently 704 New Page Reviewers, but about a third have not had any activity in the past month. All 1041 administrators have this permission, but only about a dozen significantly contribute to NPP.

This means we have an active pool of about 450 to address the backlog. We cannot rely on a few to do most of the work as that inevitably leads to burnout. A fairly experienced reviewer can usually do a review in a few minutes. If every active reviewer would patrol just one article per day, the backlog would very quickly disappear.

If you have noticed a user with a good understanding of Wikipedia notability and deletion, do suggest they help the effort by placing {{subst:NPR invite}} on their talk page.

If you are no longer very active on Wikipedia or you no longer wish to be part of the New Page Reviewer user group, please consider asking any admin to remove you from the list. This will enable NPP to have a better overview of its performance and what improvements need to be made to the process and its software.

To opt-out of future mailings, please remove yourself here.
