POTY script fixed[edit]

Sorry for the inconvenience. https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki%3AEnhancedPOTY.js&diff=87889281&oldid=87662697 should have fixed this. -- Rillke(q?) 00:18, 18 January 2013 (UTC)


File:How to hack on Wikipedia.pdf[edit]

Hi Qgil, I don't have the time to scan through this pdf-file. However, if the content is what the title suggests/claims, this file will be clearly out of COM:SCOPE. We really have enough problems with the many unsolved bugs in MediaWiki software, we don't need even more problems produced by hackers. --Túrelio (talk) 07:52, 29 January 2013 (UTC)

Software developers tend to use confusing terminology. I think the title should be „Which components of MediaWiki can be improved?“ to reflect its contents. But this would neither sound exciting nor challenging. -- Rillke(q?) 11:52, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Hi, these slides are being prepared for a lightning session at FOSDEM this Sunday with the idea of making them reusable by anybody willing to explain mw:How to contribute. Yes, the title is focused on Wikipedia more than MediaWiki because this is what most people know and also because it is also true that the path to Wikipedia / Wikimedia technical contributions goes through MediaWiki development. Túrelio, you probably should look at the slides. The title refers to hacking ON Wikipedia, not to hack Wikipedia itself, see w:Hacker (programmer subculture). In the context of free software development (as in FOSDEM conference) the language brings little confusion. The goal of this presentation is precisely to find more technical contributors to (among other things) address the bugs you refer to. (((In fact security hackers are also useful to keep an infrastructure healthy but we are definitely not calling them, and I'm digressing now))). Still, if you find this presentation is off-topic here I can move it to mediawiki.org, no problem. I thought of Commons to increase the audience precisely among those that haven't visited mediawiki.org yet.--Qgil (talk) 01:15, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your feedback. Seems I was mislead by the misleading filename. Actually, the out-of-scope threat was the mellow alternative to speedy-deletion, based on the mislead perception of the content of that file in mind. --Túrelio (talk) 07:30, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for bestatesting the title of the session. :) It still works perfectly well for the first conference where we will use this presentation but it is good to keep in mind the risk of misleading people in other contexts. Proposals for short, catchy alternative titles are welcome.--Qgil (talk) 16:46, 30 January 2013 (UTC)
