AutoWikiBrowser access[edit]




Having contributed here since July 2007 I have come across numerous instances of unconstructive edits or blatant mistakes. Albeit not on the same scale as the English Wikipedia, where I've had rollback rights for a while. Thank you. Mattythewhite (talk) 11:09, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

Upload Wizard campaign editors[edit]

Максим Підліснюк[edit]

I need to create a campaign for uploading large number of files on one of the OTRS-query. Thank you. Максим Підліснюк (talk) 18:59, 30 June 2015 (UTC)

@Максим Підліснюк: @Ahonc: Since when campaign are needed for OTRS massuploads? --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:04, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
So. What criteria? We usually give rights for trusted users. OTRS-agents are trusted as for me. Well, I'll revoke status until then end of this discussion.--Anatoliy (talk) 19:10, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
This permission is needed to setup json campaigns for upload wizard. This campaigns can be used for events (like WLE, etc-). But not for otrs uploads, this don't make sense to me. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:11, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Let me explain the situation. There is a proposal on the conditions of a free upload licenses a large number of photos. Necessary to minimize all possible technical obstacles (by not very experienced on using the computer). So why would not go to the meeting? --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 19:16, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
To be honest, that would be very difficult to do with a campaign. There are some feature requests (like phabricator:T36332) reported on phab. --Steinsplitter (talk) 19:18, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Currently, I have almost finished text campaign, where the user will need to specify only the description and name. Author, licenses - all automatically. It is much easier and faster than to request phab. Once again, please go to the meeting... --Максим Підліснюк (talk) 19:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Can we see your .json file please? --Steinsplitter (talk) 10:49, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Could, if I had the right to create--Максим Підліснюк (talk) 21:30, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
