Recent comment at WT:LuaEdit

I just wanted to follow up here to this interaction. Was your issue with the ping I left:

  • That you were called Mr. Scribunto, or
  • That you don't want to be asked for help with Lua/MediaWiki's integration with Lua?

I didn't mean to offend there if the first -- I personally used the term because I associate you with Knowledge of Things Lua and certainly did not mean it in any sense to be related to your former employer or your then/earlier job of maintaining the extension (the leaving from which I did know of). If it was the second, I would be disappointed to hear that, but you get to define the terms of your wiki engagement. --Izno (talk) 22:47, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

@Izno: I wasn't really offended, sorry that I came across that way. I'll still answer what questions I can, particularly in the context of on-wiki module editing, but I don't intend to spend much time digging into issues with the code anymore since I'd rather not give free labor to an organization that treated me so poorly in the end.

I'm sorry to hear about the poor treatment—I wish the WMF were less predictable. Thanks very much for your excellent work with Scribunto, and no doubt with other things that I never saw. Johnuniq (talk) 02:51, 30 October 2020 (UTC)

extensionTag + inputboxEdit

Is there another way to make the arguments for the extensionTag function? Inputbox has two arguments type and break which Lua seems to be tripping over (which I can see why). Code I was playing with was the below for Module:Administrators' noticeboard archives/sandbox.

mw.getCurrentFrame():extensionTag{ name = 'inputbox' , args = {
	bgcolor = 'transparent',
	type = 'fulltext',
	prefix = 'Wikipedia:Administrators\' noticeboard',
	break = 'yes',
	width = '32',
	searchbuttonlabel = 'Search',
	placeholder = 'Search noticeboards archives'
}}

Lua does not accept a keyword like "break" in the syntax above. Replace it with ['break']. Same for type. Johnuniq (talk) 23:30, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
Bah, I swear I tried that. Thanks. --Izno (talk) 17:43, 18 December 2020 (UTC)

what's up?Edit

I just noticed this and this and this and that makes me  

And just a couple days after your last mailing list announcement.

Well, Happy New Year and I hope you're doing OK. wbm1058 (talk) 00:32, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, it made me sad too. WMF management had been seeming to be getting disconnected from the actual Wikimedia mission for years, but I didn't think it would get that bad that quickly. I had a rough few months in there, but I'm settling in well at a new job now  . Thanks for the well-wishes! Anomie 02:50, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
