Unable to edit RfD page from February[edit]

Hi,

I'd like to edit my previous RfD from February by the edit button on the top of the page, but Commons does not let me switch to edit mode. Also manually changing the URL to edit mode does not work. The page does simply not reload. The RfD is also not visible on Commons:Deletion requests/2022/02 and visible part of the page is quite short, which makes me wonder if this is just me or maybe something happened, like an unclosed tag in one of the other deletion requests included in the page? Ciell (talk) 12:31, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@Ciell: Our monthly DR backlogs are normally too long to be displayed correctly. I have no probblem in editing the page, and have also fixed one missing-end-tag and one misnested-tags. Please try again and let me know if you still can't edit. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 13:44, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks @NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh. I can reply through reply-tool, but when trying to edit the page, the page still does not open in source code. Ciell (talk) 14:26, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Ciell: Can you see the [ edit ] links? If yes, try placing this line to your common.js:
  • mw.loader.load('//en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:BrandonXLF/QuickEdit.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript');
You will then see [ quick edit ] links which allow you to edit pages in-place. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 14:42, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, I can see edit links and I can edit other DR pages. Ciell (talk) 14:48, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The script fixes it for now though, thanks! Ciell (talk) 14:51, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

File:Flag of Ukraine.svg[edit]

Someone made a disruptive edit before the file was auto-protected. It tells me I can't, so please revert.--TFerenczy (talk) 14:39, 15 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

WLE SE 2022 mass message[edit]

I'm looking after the Wiki Loves Earth contest in Sweden, and would like to send a mass message to previous entrants encouraging them to enter again. I've followed the recommendations here and here, and have updated Commons:Wiki Loves Earth in Sweden/Mass message with the necessary information. Could an admin please send the message for me via Special:MassMessage? Thanks in advance! /Axel Pettersson (WMSE) (talk) 12:35, 16 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Short caption abuse filter[edit]

The edits marked by the short caption abuse filter are mostly bad and become reverted in approximately 80-90% of checked cases. As of this I would suggest to enable a warning on this abuse filter. The message could be MediaWiki:Abusefilter-warning-short-caption. Are there any objections? --GPSLeo (talk) 13:30, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

@GPSLeo: Filter looks good, but the warning probably needs some changes. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 14:40, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@GPSLeo and NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh: It should definitely use "quite" instead of "quit" twice.   — Jeff G. please ping or talk to me 14:49, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
...and a link to Abuse filter/Error reporting is also needed. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 14:50, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Does this very small filter needs a link to the reporting page? It is just a warning if the short caption is fine they can just safe the edit. --GPSLeo (talk) 15:06, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
As a courtesy, yes. More false positive reports mean that admins can further enhance the filters. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 16:18, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Typo fix in File:Wikiversity-logo-beta-v2.svg[edit]

Please change the file link in "other_versions" section to [[:File:Wikiversity-logo-beta.png]], it was a typo. Thanks! Stang 20:50, 17 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

GRP[edit]

Please help GRP is trying to take over Wikicommons and Wikiquote. – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 05:57, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Rollback[edit]

Can I have rollback rights? – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 07:22, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done. Rights are requested in Commons:Requests for rights. But I suggest you not to do that, because you have less than 50 edits and you are not yet an established user. Taivo (talk) 07:33, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Check my Wikiquote edits (the only reason I’m here is because of GRP’s interwiki stalking). – Ilovemydoodle (talk) 08:11, 18 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
