Bay Area WikiSalon series kickoff, April 27Edit

Please join us in San Francisco!
Panel discussion at a recent Wikipedia & Journalism event.

The last Wednesday evening of every month, wiki enthusiasts in the San Francisco Bay Area will gather to collaborate, mingle, and learn about new projects and ideas. We have two brief presentations lined up for our kickoff event in downtown San Francisco:

  • The Nueva Upper School recently hosted the first ever high school Wikipedia edit-a-thon. We will hear what interests them about Wikipedia, what they have learned so far, and what they hope to achieve.
  • Photojournalist Kris Schreier Lyseggen, author of The Women of San Quentin: The Soul Murder of Transgender Women in Male Prisons, will tell us about her work and how she researched the topic.

We allow time for informal conversation and working on articles. Newcomers and experienced wiki users are encouraged to attend. We will have beverages and light snacks.

Please note: You must register here, and bring a photo ID that matches your registration name. The building policy is strict on this point.

For further details, see here: Wikipedia:Bay Area WikiSalon, April 2016

We hope to see you -- and until then, happy editing! - Pete, Ben & Wayne

Hello! :) I'm sorry to bother but have you got my email? I'm starting to think it has never been sent now. - Klein Muçi (talk) 21:06, 21 July 2019 (UTC)
@Klein Muçi: Did you send it via "Email this user" or directly? Anything in particular I should search for? I get a lot of email so it may have been missed. Kaldari (talk) 14:22, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
Via "Email this user". It was a long detailed email regarding WikiLove. I'm an admin at SqWiki and we need some help with it. Can I write you here about it again then? - Klein Muçi (talk) 14:40, 22 July 2019 (UTC)
@Klein Muçi: For some reason, I don't see the email. What did you need help with? Kaldari (talk) 03:14, 23 July 2019 (UTC)
In the email I asked for help creating new types at the WikiLove extension and making it possible for the templates to be substituted instead of transcluded. But now I think I've solved that part. Now I have only two small problems.
  1. These templates: Template:The Left Half of the Half Barnstar, Template:The Right Half of the Half Barnstar require a user name to be added as a parameter to work properly. How do I make it possible so the user only has to write the name at the text area and the extension to take care of the formatting like the other cases?
  2. The images of the type "Gostitje" (please, check the extension at SqWiki) are formatted badly on the extension. How can I fix that?
For convenience, here is our WikiLove page- Klein Muçi (talk) 14:03, 23 July 2019 (UTC)

PS: How can I use new images for the types used in WikiLove? - Klein Muçi (talk) 15:20, 23 July 2019 (UTC) @Klein Muçi: The problem with the Gostitje images is that there isn't enough content about the item to push the Preview button down enough to clear the image. You can fix this by simply making sure that the description of the Gostitje is at least 2 lines long, or you can add a parameter like "Enter a message:". I'll look at the Half Barnstars in a little bit. Kaldari (talk) 17:19, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

Thank you! I was able to solve it after adding a few more descriptive words about each template. When you do write to me about the Half Barnstars, can you also tell me how can I add new images for the types created (possibly from Commons)? The ones here unfortunately, are not enough for the types we have. For the moment, just for distinction, I've been forced to use a glass of beer to represent the type where the intergovernmental organizations' barnstar templates are. And we have to add a few more types so the need for new images is big. - Klein Muçi (talk) 19:03, 24 July 2019 (UTC)
@Kaldari: sorry for bothering but is there any chance you've found a way for the Half Barnstars to work correctly yet? Also the images problem (regarding WikiLove's types) is still relevant. - Klein Muçi (talk) 15:39, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
I was able to solve both problems by experimenting with the code. Thank you for having helped with the creation of WikiLove though! You've helped make every user's life a little bit happier (and easier). :P :) - Klein Muçi (talk) 16:13, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Re: Current eventsEdit

Thnak you for responding. The thing is a lot of contributors provide "general topic" subheaders to curent events anyway. For Sunday, the subheader Argentina–Brazil relations is used, and for Saturday, the subheader Terrorism in the United States is used for example. A quick search of the current events up to at least last yar will generate similar results. So I don't see why my contribution is getting singled out. (talk) 23:08, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

How do you Reboot citation bot pleaseEdit

And, what command do you use? Now that we have authentifciation, when the bot is 99% down, I would like to have an API. AManWithNoPlan (talk) 15:25, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

I log onto Tool Forge and run:
become citations
webservice restart

@AManWithNoPlan: If you have a Tool Forge account, I can make you a maintainer for the project. Kaldari (talk) 18:22, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
It is down again. I do not have a tool forge account at this time. AManWithNoPlan (talk) 14:03, 7 August 2019 (UTC)
Kaldari, Kaldari, maybe I can assist with this. I'm on tool forge everyday. —CYBERPOWER (Around) 01:31, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
