China photos[edit]

Hi. Was the deletion of File:Steep portion of the Great Wall.jpg an accident? And do you have one or more of these photos in higher resolution? Thanks -- Rillke(q?) 19:13, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

It seems like it...I sent the requested emails to OTRS, so it should have been fine. And no, these are the only versions I have, they're from long ago and I didn't have the best camera. --MarkTraceur (talk) 19:16, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Code issues in User:MarkTraceur/editDescriptions.js[edit]

Hi MarkTraceur, I am a bored bot (this is kind of a computer program) that is watching the recent changes and tapping buttons like I did now.

Curious about the reason? Possibly not but I will tell you anyway:

  1. You edited User:MarkTraceur/editDescriptions.js. Glad to see you coding in javascript! Have you ever considered becoming a MediaWiki hacker?
  2. Though, that change appears to introduce 1 new jshint issue -- the page's status is now having warnings. Note that invalid or ambiguous code often has unwanted side effects like breaking other tools for you. If you cannot find out how to fix it, I suggest blanking the page for now.
  3. To help you understanding where the issues are, I have aggregated a report here and now. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask users experienced in javascript writing for help. But do not ask the bot's operators (chronically overwrought) unless you suspect an error of mine. If you prefer not getting spammed by me, you can opt-out reports by adding {{ValidationOptOut|type=all}} to your user page. Good luck at Wikimedia Commons and happy hacking!
  1. ISSUE: line 194 character 19: Don't make functions within a loop. - Evidence: } );
  2. ISSUE: line 384 character 19: Expected an assignment or function call and instead saw an expression. - Evidence: } );

issues with editDescriptions.js[edit]

hello, I noticed a few wrong edits from someone using your editDescriptions.js' script.
When descriptions are provided via the mld (multi lingual description) template.
your script makes not description being shown.

Esby (talk) 12:38, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

@Esby: I'm going to be a bit of a bastard here and tell you to look at {{mld}}, paying special attention to the "Recommended use at" row in the criteria table. {{mld}} is recommended for use outside of file pages, I would imagine, because if we had multiple formats for descriptions, we would be less able to read the data with machines. And lo, this machine is now less able to read the data. :) --MarkTraceur (talk) 14:28, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
the fact the mld template is recommanded somewhere does not mean it must not be used elsewhere. Your script has a bug, fix it or prevent the script from deleting data and causing possible vandalism? Esby (talk) 15:27, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
Did you know we have a JavaScript parser? It's quite old but still seems to work.
mw.loader.using( 'ext.gadget.libWikiDOM', function() {
 console.log( mw.libs.wikiDOM.parser.text2Obj( $('#wpTextbox1').val() ) );
} );
-- Rillke(q?) 16:34, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
Issue fixed. Esby (talk) 11:23, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Huh, I see no changes in/ to the script? -- Rillke(q?) 14:36, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, because it is a design issue. The script checks for Category:Language_templates to construct the list of language templates like {{en}} to edit,
the issue is that the pages in that category are not necessarily language template as the script awaits...
I changed the category of {{mld/start}} {{mld/end}} (which were categorized when creating the template 5 years ago...)
So basically the main issue is 'fixed' (hiding of information, resulting in possible loss of information), but there might be troubles with other template in this category,
{{mld}} is also probably not supported for editing right now with the script...
Esby (talk) 14:56, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
@Esby: I don't think it ever will be editable with this script. The only thing I see changing here with respect to {{mld}}, is handling it only to replace it with multiple language template calls. I'm not going to ignore the template authour's recommendation when it comes to where their template should be used...and clearly, the output structure is different, or there would have been no issue...consistency in format seems like a worthy goal here. --MarkTraceur (talk) 15:46, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
For what it's worth: It wasn't the template's author's recommendation; I boldly threw this table to the template documentation attempting to standardize and documenting how current practise (mostly) looks like, including considerations from previous discussions. -- Rillke(q?) 16:08, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi again, I initially thought that removing the two templates from the category was enough, but it seems not, here's a fix for showing multilingual div when the script is loaded. diff (it is not taking into account the multilingual div, it is just ignoring it when it is present.)Esby (talk) 18:18, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Zombie page[edit]

Hi Mark. Good day to you. Could you see what this page is all about? Related discussions are here, but the plan on getting in zapped was discussed on IRC. Regards, Rehman 11:02, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

@Rehman: Gooood morning. A brief adventure, figuring this one out, but I think you'll enjoy it.
At first I thought it was the default message page, but that wouldn't make much sense, as I don't think messages can have slashes in their names. So theory one, dashed. Er, slashed.
Then I thought it might have been created before at some point, but there was no history. So clearly that's not it.
Well, then I tried going to MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown/asnotehuetnohanthoeu and the page was still there. It turns out most combinations of characters will bring you to that same page. Except for a select few: Non-English language codes. MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown/fr, for example, is the French version of the message. So basically, MediaWiki thought, "Oh, here's a helpful native speaker of the language 'proposal'. I don't have a clue about that language, but this person apparently does, so I'll just give them the current English text so they know what they're translating, and let them translate their little hearts out." Thanks a bunch, MediaWiki.
Not sure what your goal here is, but if you want to propose a new value for the message, you might want to do it on MediaWiki talk:Deletereason-dropdown/proposal or some other page in the talk space. --MarkTraceur (talk) 15:22, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you! Since it's an automated thing, I guess there is no need of zapping it then. :) Have a good day. Rehman 02:07, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Default language for editdescriptions.js[edit]

would it be possible to make english (en) the default language option instead of 'aa', most times i end up saving after changing the description not realizing that the language is set at 'aa'.. I know other may have faced the same problem..English is the most widely used language on commons for description and categories so why not make it default by default?..hehe..--Stemoc 14:36, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

@Stemoc: Should be set now.
