  • Q: I am using an old or non-standard, vulnerable Browser and I am unable to update and the gallery look really weird or does not work. What can I do?
    • A: I won't spend my spare-time to think about a solution for old browsers, sorry. This script should work for modern browsers. If you have a suggestion how to fix for your browser, you can report it as a code-improvement.
  • Q: The tool claims, that a file is deleted but it was just moved/renamed.
    • A: The tool traces one file movement. If there is more than one or a deletion in-between, I can't do anything, sorry.
  • Q: The tool claims, that a file is a deleted revision. What the hell is that?
    • A: This is due to the nature of the tool. It tries to find all your uploads consequently using the upload log. There are now three cases possible:
      • It is, indeed, a deleted file version. An administrator deleted this specific version. Click on the icon to see who and why. (Log)
      • The complete file was deleted and a user recreated it with totally different content. Click on the icon to see why it was deleted.
      • MediaWiki (the servers) were to slow and the log-timestamp differs too much from the file-version timestamp: Yes that is stupid but nothing I can change, sorry. Each file version should have a stable ID that is logged but MediaWiki did not implement that. You could also request a new API module there, that allows listing all user uploads directly at Bugzilla.
  • Q: Do you need help?
    • A: Yes. If you have ideas or just want to improve the tool, don't hesitate to ask me.


You can add these to your common.js to alter the default behavior.
