Kind Query

Hi Grace. It's Mohammed Sayanvala here. I was wondering if you could please give me an explanation as to why Wikipedia will not remove the pictures portraying prophet Muhammed? Thank you so much.

rollback.js[edit]

Can you please configure the script to add the "sum" link next to every rollback link rather than just on the diff pages? -- IRP 01:33, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Done. I've added the "sum" links onto history and contributions pages as well. If you want to disable the script on any one of those pages, just a line of code after the import statement:
//the script won't run on diff pages, history pages, and contribs page respectively,
//depending on what you put in the "rollbackLinksDisable" list
rollbackLinksDisable = [ 'diff', 'history', 'user' ]
 
//only disable one
rollbackLinksDisable = [ 'user' ]
 
//don't disable any: this is the default setting, no need to write it out
rollbackLinksDisable = []
I've also changed the script to use the browser's built-in method of finding rollback links, if such a method is available (otherwise defaulting to the normal implementation). If any bugs were introduced, please let me know about them! GracenotesT § 02:40, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

your script :/[edit]

I luffs j00 lots, but your Gracenotes/rollback.js script caused the error rbnode is null, which had the side effect of disabling my entire monobook except on diff pages, and I had to remove it :/ // roux   08:24, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Spam in Importance[edit]

Information icon.svg
Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Importance, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Importance is blatant advertising for a company, product, group, service or person that would require a substantial rewrite in order to become an encyclopedia article.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Importance, please affix the template {{hangon}} to the page, and put a note on its talk page. If the article has already been deleted, see the advice and instructions at WP:WMD. Feel free to contact the bot operator if you have any questions about this or any problems with this bot, bearing in mind that this bot is only informing you of the nomination for speedy deletion; it does not perform any nominations or deletions itself. To see the user who deleted the page, click here CSDWarnBot (talk) 14:20, 26 December 2008 (UTC)
You forgot to explain why this is relevant to me, Mr. Bot. GracenotesT § 19:53, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

AfD nomination of Importance[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg
I have nominated Importance, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Importance. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time. dougweller (talk) 19:34, 26 December 2008 (UTC)

An article you created maybe deleted soon: Tools which can help you[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

The article you created, Importance maybe deleted from Wikipedia.

There is an ongoing debate about whether your article should be deleted here:

The faster your respond, the better chance the article you created can be saved. This is because deletion debates only stay open for a few days, and the first comments are usually the most important.

Life Preserver.svg

Question book-new.svg
Merge-arrows.svg

There are several tools and other editors who can help you keep the page from being deleted forever:

  1. You can list the page up for deletion on Article Rescue Squadron. If you need help listing your page, add a comment on the Article Rescue Squadron talk page.
  2. You can request a mentor to help explain to you all of the complex rules that editors use to get a page deleted, here: Wikipedia:Adopt-a-User. But don't wait for a mentor to respond on the deletion page.
  3. When try to delete a page, veteran editors love to use a lot of rule acronyms. Don't let these acronyms intimidate you.
    Here is a list of your own acronyms you can use yourself: WP:Deletion debate acronyms which may support the page you created being kept.
    Acronyms in deletion debates are sometimes incorrectly used, or ignore rules or exceptions.
  4. You can merge the article into a larger or better established article on the same topic.

If your page is deleted, you still have many options available. Good luck! travb (talk) 22:08, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Happy New Year![edit]

rollback.js[edit]

There should be "sum" links in Special:RecentChanges now that rollback links are enabled there. Also, the default text for the summary field should be "[[WP:RBK|Reverted]] edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last version by $1; ". I understand that it will create such a summary after clicking "OK" (when the field is blank), however, the field should be prefilled with that text before users click OK so users can easily append the rollback reason after the default summary. If they do not want the summary to contain the default text, they can just blank the summary and write a custom one. -- IRP 15:08, 25 April 2009 (UTC), modified 15:09, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I've added RC support! Unfortunately, the default rollback edit summary is only available after you click OK: it is generated by the system. Anything generated by the script would be susceptible to race conditions (errors caused by bad timing), and require a few API calls. To make a long story short, it is possible to replace the default summary, but not append to it. I think there's a bug request for customizable summaries, like submitting an edit summary with $1 and having MediaWiki replace it with the correct variables server-side. Until then, this feature can't easily exist. However, I've added an option for a default value, if it helps. For anything more complicated, try using more complex anti-vandalism scripts. GracenotesT § 15:57, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
If I manually paste in "[[WP:RBK|Reverted]] edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last version by $1" for the summary, I get the same thing that I would if I were to click "rollback". If I enter "[[WP:RBK|Reverted]] edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last version by $1; reson for reverting", I get the default summary with the reason after that. I don't see any problem with that. It's just like appending "Reply" after "/* rollback.js */ " when I replied to this post. If I didn't change it, I would just have the default edit summary. Do you see what I'm trying to request? -- IRP 16:16, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh, so it was in fact added as a feature! Lots of things change when you're not in the loop :) To enable this, just add:

rollbackSummaryDefault = "[[WP:RBK|Reverted]] edits by [[Special:Contributions/$2|$2]] ([[User talk:$2|talk]]) to last version by $1";

After the script inclusion. Then it will be the default summary. GracenotesT § 16:30, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Where am I supposed to add it? -- IRP 16:40, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
After the script inclusion, so on the next line after the importScript on your user JS page. GracenotesT § 16:45, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for the help. -- IRP 16:58, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

I forgot something. I forgot to request that it be enabled on Special:Watchlist. -- IRP 17:15, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Also, I think it would be better if the "rollbackSummaryDefault" was enabled by default (without the extra code in the monobook.js file) and should have an option to disable it just like the "rollbackLinksDisable" option. -- IRP 17:21, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Note: I have fused the script inclusion and the extra code. Now instead of doing that, you can just add:


importScript('User:Porchcrop/rollback.js');

A problem with 'User:Gracenotes/amelvand.js' and 'User:Gracenotes/wpPicmark.js'[edit]

Hi, when I have this enabled in my monobook.js (as importScript('User:Gracenotes/amelvand.js');), when I load up a Wikipedia page, I get an error:

An error has occurred in the script on this page
Line: 771
Char 25
Error: Expected ';'
Code: 0
URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Gracenotes/amelvand.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript

Also, in wpPicmark (in monobook as importScript('User:Gracenotes/wpPicmark.js');), I get two different errors:

When I first go to a File: page, I get:

Line: 131
Char: 5
Code: 0
URI: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Gracenotes/wpPicmark.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript

And then when I choose a template from the drop-down list, I get two messages:

Message: '0.lastChild' is null or not an object
Line: 131
Char: 5
Code: 0
URI: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Gracenotes/wpPicmark.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Deprecated/undated[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Thank you for experimenting with Wikipedia. Your test worked, and the page that you created has been or soon will be deleted. Please use the sandbox for any other tests you want to do. Take a look at the welcome page if you would like to learn more about contributing to our encyclopedia.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Mhiji 01:21, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

You are invited to the National Archives ExtravaSCANza, taking place every day next week from January 4–7, Wednesday to Saturday, in College Park, Maryland (Washington, DC metro area). Come help me cap off my stint as Wikipedian in Residence at the National Archives with one last success!

This will be a casual working event in which Wikipedians are getting together to scan interesting documents at the National Archives related to a different theme each day—currently: spaceflight, women's suffrage, Chile, and battleships—for use on Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons. The event is being held on multiple days, and in the evenings and weekend, so that as many locals and out-of-towners from nearby regions1 as possible can come. Please join us! Dominic·t 01:19, 30 December 2011 (UTC)

1 Wikipedians from DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Newark, New York City, and Pittsburgh have been invited.

Invitation to events in June and July: bot, script, template, and Gadget makers wanted[edit]

I invite you to the yearly Berlin hackathon, 1-3 June. Registration is now open. If you need financial assistance or help with visa or hotel, then please register by May 1st and mention it in the registration form.

This is the premier event for the MediaWiki and Wikimedia technical community. We'll be hacking, designing, teaching, and socialising, primarily talking about ResourceLoader and Gadgets (extending functionality with JavaScript), the switch to Lua for templates, Wikidata, and Wikimedia Labs.

We want to bring 100-150 people together, including lots of people who have not attended such events before. User scripts, gadgets, API use, Toolserver, Wikimedia Labs, mobile, structured data, templates -- if you are into any of these things, we want you to come!

I also thought you might want to know about other upcoming events where you can learn more about MediaWiki customization and development, how to best use the web API for bots, and various upcoming features and changes. We'd love to have power users, bot maintainers and writers, and template makers at these events so we can all learn from each other and chat about what needs doing.

Check out the the developers' days preceding Wikimania in July in Washington, DC and our other events.

Best wishes! - Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer Development Coordinator. Please reply on my talk page, here or at mediawiki.org. Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 01:42, 4 April 2012 (UTC)
