DelReqHandler/deletion errors, etc[edit]

Hi Rillke. While deleting the files in Commons:Deletion requests/Files in Category:Photographs by David Plas, I got the following error about 75 times:

"API request failed (backend-fail-internal): An unknown error occurred in storage backend "local-swift-eqiad"

It took 6 or 7 refreshes to get the DR closed. I've also noticed some API errors creeping back in as I've done the past week's DRs. Thanks for your time. INeverCry 07:46, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm getting the same error multiple times in other mass DRs. If it continues, I guess I'll call it a night and try again later... INeverCry 07:50, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Still happening with mass and single DRs this afternoon. Also more API errors. INeverCry 19:42, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Some old scripts[edit]

Hi, Rainer. Some time ago, you posted some messages on User talk:Ricordisamoa/Blurry.js and User talk:Ricordisamoa/TemplateLangUpdate.js, suggesting that they might have been useful to someone else. How far have we got? And... what about ShouldBeSVG.js? --Ricordisamoa 01:29, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I forgot about them and now there is not much I can or want do about this anymore. Code stored on wiki has no value and no future. -- Rillke(q?) 22:56, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
(Wenn du mal bitte Zeit hast on irc zu kommen, muss dich was fragen --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:36, 3 November 2014 (UTC))

Template:Translate/layout[edit]

Kurze Frage dazu: Ist Special:Diff/111522346 wirklich nötig? Ich dachte {{Autotranslate}} erledigt das für uns? Danke und Gruß, --Patrick87 (talk) 20:50, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

Wenn text_switch in einer Übersetzung fehlt, würde stattdessen gar nichts angezeigt. -- Rillke(q?) 22:54, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Bei Nutzung der Translate-Extension ist dieses Konstrukt natürlich nicht mehr nötig, da durch die Nutzung der Extension sichergestellt sein sollte, dass die Parameter in allen Sprachversionen vorhanden sind. -- Rillke(q?) 23:24, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Danke, dann ist klar wie's gemeint ist/war... --Patrick87 (talk) 01:00, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

VisualFileChange[edit]

Hallo Rainer, VFC ist eine grossartige Hilfe. Ich verwende das tool erst seit kurzem, und bin noch nicht so recht erfahren damit.
Wenn ich eine Kategorie mit vielen Dateien durchsuchen will, muss ich da wirklich ewig runterscrollen? Das geht doch sicher einfacher?
Was ganz konkretes: Created with Inkscape enthält 57000 files, und sehr viele davon sind direkt kategorisiert statt per Vorlage. Wenn ich die finden und ändern will, muss ich doch alle 57000 durchsuchen - wie geht das? Ohne stundenlanges scrollen. Sicher hast du eine ganz einfache Lösung. mfg sarang사랑 10:29, 25 September 2014 (UTC)

Die einzig mögliche Option ist "Amount of files to be loaded when clicking on more or when scrolling down" in den Einstellungen auf 100 oder mehr (für admins) einzustellen. Andernfalls pywiki bot, AWB o.ä. benutzen. Ich wollte schon mal eine js-command line schreiben, die es erlaubt zuerst die Aktion auszuwählen und dann über die durch Kriterien spezifizierten, aber noch nicht geladenen Dateien geht, aber dazu fehlt mir einfach die Zeit. Auf dieser Seite und mit FF scheint VFC auch irgendwie nicht zu funktionieren. -- Rillke(q?) 12:28, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
Wenn du doch irgendwann mal dazu kommst: eine Option "show whole category" oder so, die sämtliche Dateien displayed und damit selectable macht, wäre eine grossartige Erweiterung von VFC. Falls das einfacher sein sollte als die js-command line, die natürlich viel universeller wäre. Gruss sarang사랑 14:11, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

Email[edit]

I replied to your email though idk if you can actually reply to the wikimedia server’s emails—Love, Kelvinsong talk 22:18, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

I received your reply, thank you. If you send eMail through WikiMail, the WMF server "spoofes" the sender address to be the one you verified in your user account. -- Rillke(q?) 01:50, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Commons:User scripts/users namespace/reports[edit]

Was dagegen wenn ich da mal ein wenig aufräume? Einträge von später gelöschten Scriptseiten und deren Berichte sind ja eigentlich überflüssig. --Denniss (talk) 20:50, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Löschungen der Berichte durchführen/vorschlagen ist ein Feature das dem Bot wirklich fehlt. Auf der Übersichtsseite macht es keinen Sinn manuell aufzuräumen, da der Bot die Seiten noch in der Datenbank hält und den Bericht jedes mal aufs Neue kompiliert. -- Rillke(q?) 01:46, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Selbsterklärend … Falls kein Template vorhanden ist stattdessen vielleicht ein Archivlink? Grüße,    FDMS  4    22:47, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Au ja, das habe ich vergessen. Danke. Template:AQD error archive header habe ich prompt erstellt.
@FDMS4: Meinst Du einige der Photos die ich kürzlich zu Flickr hochgeladen habe sind nützlich für Commons? Ich meine, die meisten sind schön, aber wenig edukativ. Geo-Tags und präzisere Beschreibungen könnte ich ggf. hinzufügen. -- Rillke(q?) 21:07, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
@Rillke: Hm, flickrphoto:15445886436 gefällt mir motivlich sehr gut, vielleicht kann das jemand zurechtzerren? Ansonsten ist Category:Ilhabela eh nicht überpopuliert, da hat etwas wie flickrphoto:15465758031 sicher Mehrwert. Auch flickrphoto:15468896545 und flickrphoto:15282349857, in anderer Hinsicht. Entweder das Panorama oder das Gipfelbild könnte man auch als Pagebanner verwenden. Hoffe damit geholfen zu haben,    FDMS  4    21:24, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
Werde ich dann im Rahmen des nächsten WLE erledigen. a) Das macht die Organisatoren happy. b) Vielleicht gewinne ich einen der überteuerten WLE Brazil Preise, wenn sie wieder 14'000 U$ verpulvern c) Bekomme ich dann eine nette Dankesnachricht auf meine Disk und mehr Benutzer kümmern sich um Kategorisierung und Einbindung. -- Rillke(q?) 22:06, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
Jaja, die Brasilianer … :) WLE ist jedenfalls sicher ein nettes Event.    FDMS  4    00:36, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton has been previously blocked on several projects[edit]

Hi.

About something you said here on Rodrigo being or not aware, it may be valid bring some very brief links to point out that we are not facing that for the firts time. He has at least three accounts that have had the same behaviour:

That is all I can remember for now and I post here for clarifying that there is strong reasons to believe that he is already aware that uncivility is not allowed here. I hope that helps. Regards.—Teles «Talk to me ˱C L @ S˲» 19:12, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, Teles; I was aware of the previous blocks for this reason. Someone threw it into the meta RfC which I read in almost its length. The point I tried to make is that a) they appears to be frustrated b) their English appears to be worse than they claim to speak and I was therefore in doubt whether they could assess how grave their allegations/insults were (despite the previous blocks). -- Rillke(q?) 22:02, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

Dokumentationsvorlage mit TemplateBox mehrfach nutzen und dabei verschiedene Parameter anzeigen lassen[edit]

Hallo, du hast doch Erfahrung mit der {{TemplateBox}}? Ich versuche Dinge etwas zu vereinfachen, indem ich {{SVG created with/doc}} verwende anstatt an die 30 Mal fast dieselbe Dokumentation zu haben, und pflegen zu müssen. Das geht ganz gut, aber wenn ich dann doch einen speziellen Parameter aktivieren möchte bekomme ich das nicht hin. So zB den fakultativen Parameter IMPORTANT= der exklusiv nur von {{Inkscape}} und {{SVG-edit}} verwendet wird; anderes kann ich gut parametrieren, aber einzelne Parameter der {{TemplateBox}} ein- oder auszuschalten gelingt mir nicht. Siehst du da eine Möglichkeit? Oder weisst du jemanden der mir da weiterhelfen kann? sarang사랑 11:30, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Das ist momentan noch nicht möglich. Siehe letzter Punkt Template_talk:TemplateBox#Minor_improvements. Aber ich denke, das werde ich alsbald ändern (lassen). -- Rillke(q?) 13:36, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
Vielen Dank. Damit lässt sich das dann bestens realisieren; da werde ich eben noch ein wenig warten.
@Rillke:: Nun kann ich auch bitten, die drei Vorlagen lt. User:Sarang/T zu aktualisieren, damit die neue Funktionalität verwendbar ist. Die IMPORTANT-Anzeige bei Inkscape ist noch nicht ganz perfekt, aber das kann ja gemacht werden, wenn dann improved sein wird. sarang사랑 06:10, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
@Sarang: kann ich leider nicht mehr machen, da ich meine administrative Tätigkeit nach der Einführung von Super-Protection niedergelegt habe. -- Rillke(q?) 14:12, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
Sehr schade! Und auch problematisch für mich, es war immer mühsam jemanden zu finden der mir die Änderungen an gesperrten Vorlagen macht. Ich versuche es mal, oder kannst du mir einen volunteer empfehlen? sarang사랑 15:56, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

JS to tag page {{Uncategorized}}[edit]

File:IE8 Tab Wikivoyage without Favicon.png[edit]

Hi. wrt this — I think the screenshot anyway contains visuals and elements of proprietary software (IE), so I think the image should instead be nominated for deletion. -Mardus (talk) 16:18, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

@Mardus: Yes, the page contains elements of proprietary software, as well as other screenshots I uploaded in the same series but I doubt the threshold of originality is met here. The image shows a single tab, which is basically a geometric shape (rounded rectangle with a gradient from blue to white and a border) and an x on it. Feel free to nominate it for deletion but before you do so, please have a look at similar deletion debates. Thank you! -- Rillke(q?) 18:04, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
Commons:Screenshots#Microsoft_products has it that screenshots of Microsoft products go against Commons policy, and I disagree about this image containing only purely geometric objects, and I understand the theme used was not the Classic theme, which mostly consists of geometric shapes. Typically, Microsoft products are only permissible on en-wiki. There are also free software alternatives available. I won't nominate this myself, but I'm sure someone will one day. -Mardus (talk) 18:22, 29 October 2014 (UTC)

Re:[edit]

Hi Rillke,

The only problem that they should solve is the clear one, that one sysop used the adm tools to protect one page using the argument of edition war in one page without edition war. And that's it. Other problem related they are not capable to solve. Rodrigo Tetsuo Argenton (talk) 10:35, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

VisualFileChange errors[edit]

Rillke, I am getting "An error occurred preparing to query file-information. ##### API request failed (iiurlparamnormal): Could not normalise image parameters for A_View.pdf" when opening User:Jarekt/a today. Any ideas? --Jarekt (talk) 17:03, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

It was just a corrupt file: file:A_View.pdf --Jarekt (talk) 17:30, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

implicit categorisation[edit]

Did you notice that this file is already implicitly categorised into category:Qt via category:Qt_Creator?--Kulandru mor (talk) 12:16, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed that and that's why I undid your change. But I wouldn't call it "implicit categorization". Sometimes it's perfectly fine to have a file in, both a parent category and one of its sub-categories. This is the case if you expect that there is another sub-category your file could fit into. -- Rillke(q?) 13:08, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades...

Rillke, congratulations! You now have administrator rights on Commons. Please take a moment to read the Commons:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Commons:Administrators' noticeboard and Commons:Deletion requests), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-commons on irc.freenode.net. There is also a channel for Commons admins, which may be useful for more sensitive topics, or coordination among administrators: #wikimedia-commons-admin.

You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading.

Please also check or add your entry to the List of administrators and the related lists by language and date it references.

Future script errors[edit]

Due to mailarchive:wikitech-l/2014-December/079694.html, some of our modules that use mw.text.unstrip to process special pages is going to break (eg. Module:MyUploads, Module:Page). Do you have any ideas on how to save them? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 06:35, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

We are primarily using it to iterate over subpages, more specifically over language subpages. I don't know whether there is a Lua module for subpages right now; if not, we will have to go with the old approach of iterating over each language variant, which is quite expensive (timely and expensive parser function count). Well, at least it lasted for 1 1/2 year. -- Rillke(q?) 11:36, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Commons Maintenance Bot warning[edit]

Hello. Perhaps you'd like to know that your bot is incorrectly flagging code that clearly passed both JSLint and the Mediawiki version of JSHint. (Special:Diff/141692674) Magog the Ogre (talk) (contribs) 16:12, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

I guess MediaWiki passes some options to JSHint. When I go to JSHint.com and paste the version CMB complains about, I receive said six warnings. -- Rillke(q?) 20:39, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Indeed, they've set some options to the JSHint version running inside the webworker of CodeEditor. The warning you saw should be gone now. -- Rillke(q?) 20:19, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

Language links[edit]

Hi; would you have any idea why the i18n links at MediaWiki talk:Gadget-HotCat.js have vanished? I don't see any recent edit in the templates involved, nor at Module:Languages. But for some reason I get served a page containing only an &nbsp; (actually, &#160;) instead of the i18n subpage links. Lupo 12:00, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

It's because Lua Sandbox will not unstrip special pages to HTML (section "Future script errors" on this page), sadly. I'm looking into this in a minute. -- Rillke(q?) 14:12, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. So, basically Module:Page asks the parser to expand "{{special:prefixindex/%s/%s}}", which comes back as a strip marker(?), which is then unstripped, which doesn't work anymore? Is there no Scribunto/Lua infrastructure or mw.api module to perform normal Ajax API queries?? (The allpages API does what Special:Prefixindex does.) That module could even run its "API calls" entirely on the server side by going through FakeRequest (or whatever the php class is called nowadays). Shouldn't be any more expensive than making the parser jump though all it hoops to expand that transclusion, and would return data in a useable structured format, not as some HTML soup. Lupo 15:05, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
@Lupo: Indeed, I should have been more verbose. frame:preprocess() on text containing a transclusion of a special page returns a strip marker, easily spotted running, for example =mw.getCurrentFrame():preprocess( '>>{{Special:PrefixIndex/foo}}<<' ) in the Lua console. This allowed people to inject <ref> tags in one Lua sandbox call and reading their content later, in another Lua invocation through <references />. Since this violated the sandboxing principle, strip markers representing special pages are now simply killed when mw.text.unstrip() runs over those.
Allowing Lua to access API modules would be certainly powerful but also a little dangerous since API must assume the lowest possible permission level and must only respond to queries (action=query). Will you bring your suggestion to Phabricator? I like it. -- Rillke(q?) 16:25, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
To access the API, I think there would need to be some Lua module acting as a wrapper, and I think it also would need runtime support in the Scribunto implementation to make it use FakeRequest; after all such Lua "API calls" should not actually go over the network. In this wrapper and/or runtime it should be relatively simple to make accessible only a safe (in terms of execution time and other considerations) subset of the API. I would think that simple page-related queries such as the one that would be needed here would be part of that subset.
As for suggesting this at Phabricator: I haven't bothered to create an account there, and I doubt I will. But feel free to do so. Lupo 17:45, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
API wrapper, subpages -- Rillke(q?) 19:05, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

Can something be done about this without having access to the allpages API? Lupo 12:47, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Raising the Expensive parser function count limit, no longer counting #ifexist: and Lua equivalents as expensive, allowing Lua to evaluate existance of multiple pages within just one expensive call, limiting the languages that are being checked to a set of most commonly used languages or requiring an update to the language list each time a new language is added. The create-links-in-wikimarkup-and-parse-them does not work anymore. Of course, we could rely on bots for updating language listings but I'd like to rather avoid that. -- Rillke(q?) 13:49, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
 :-) Now I should have been more specific: I meant "can something be done by changing the way Module:Page is coded in Lua to avoid this while preserving the current functionality?" From your answer above I deduce the answer is "no, not really". Well, maybe that makes getting some built-in way in Lua either to get subpages or to get access to an even more general subset of the API more of a priority. (T49137 already has priority "High".)

Request for Patroller[edit]

Hey I was wondering if you would consider making me a patroller on Wiki Commons. My request was declined because I am facing a one month block on en.wiki for a BLP dispute with an admin (disputes with admins never end well for the regular user :p). However BLP and refs aren't really an issue on Wiki Commons. I would love to help review edits and new pages as I have been doing, and be able to mark them as patrolled so someone else doesn't have to come recheck them. I hope you will consider my request. Thanks! EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 23:50, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

Looking into it. Stay tuned. -- Rillke(q?) 23:51, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
I'll pop this on my watchlist, thanks for the quick response! EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 23:54, 13 December 2014 (UTC)
I see phrases like Sorry, but there are a number of very experienced and sensible users handling this. I trust their judgement and will leave it to them on your enwiki talk page that make me think of either this user is too lazy or doesn't have any backbone. (Please don't cite me on that. That would require backbone to defend :P)
@EoRdE6: What exactly would you do when being a patroller? Please provide a detailed response. Also note, that I will postpone your request by at least 14 days, so the earliest day you will be patroller is December, 28 (dependent on the quality of your reply and what you do in-between). If this is okay for you, please answer the question. Best -- Rillke(q?) 00:16, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
I would do just as all other patrollers do. I would monitor Special:NewPages and Special:RecentChanges and help reduce the large backlog dating back to mid-november of unpatrolled new pages while watching for obvious vandalism, whether the page falls within the project scope, copyvios, and good-faith yet unhelpful edits and revert or correct them. I have a background in removing copyvios and solving deletion requests, as evident by my contributions. I hope this answer is sufficient and that you will allow me to help out as a patroller (on December 28 of course :p) Thanks! EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 01:24, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
P.S If you don't mind me asking, why did you make DLindsley a patroller without a 14 day waiting period? Just curious, especially given her block at en.wiki and her attack pages at wikinews... But alas, that is none of my business... Just curious. EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 01:30, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
If asked by one of my colleagues privately, I will disclose why but I am not inclined to do that publicly. It's not private information but an algorithm, I don't want to see exploited. Hope to see you doing well and not to engage in any edit war, whether here or on other projects till December, 28. -- Rillke(q?) 01:38, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Hey no worries, I'm not botheredOk I guess we will talk again then. Thanks again! EoRdE6(Come Talk to Me!) 01:51, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
