Definition of Tool1, Tool2, and Tool3

Crystal Clear app xclock.svg Interiot is busy in real life and may not respond swiftly to queries. If you have an urgent matter, it may be best to use email.

Some comments:

  • I didn't leave due to any conflicts or animosity. There were several reasons why I've drifted away, including the need to spend less time doing edits.
  • I still want to see Wikipedia grow and succeed, I still do ~25 anon edits a month, and I advocate for Wikipedia every chance I get.
  • Apologies for leaving the tools hanging, and not providing for a smoother transition. I haven't kept up with their status, but hopefully the tools can be transitioned to others who are interested in maintaining or enhancing them.
  • The email link still works. If anyone is updating any tool code, feel free to ask about clarifications about the code. For other questions, I've tended not to answer... apologies, but I'm not dedicating as much time to Wikipedia as I used to.

Wannabe Kate[edit]

About wannabe kate: If I understand correctly, the script will query a wiki found at the location of (input)+"/w/" - Right? This makes it impossible (i think) to query wikis who do not have a /w/ location, but rather have it in a different folder or in the root directory (such as, in my case, [www.wowwiki.com]). Was the tool never intended to be able to interact with anything besides wikipedia, is there a way to do it and i was unable to figure it out, or is there a way you could implement it? Thanks in any case. ~ twsx | talkcont | ~ 09:48, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Hi Interiot -- I wondered whether "Wannabe Kate" was a reference to Ben Folds Five -- and sure enough, you added a link to the song on the Kate page :-) The article for the song was never written, and someone's removed the link in the meantime -- oh well, time to hand out the Baghavad Gitas...

Oh man[edit]

I'm really glad to see you back. I shared with a couple of trusted friends my concern that you, erm, how shall I put this, might have left more than just Wikipedia, if you catch my drift. (mostly because one of your last edit summaries promised to do something that evening, which seemed so ominous when unfulfilled!) While I'm blushing furiously, I've rarely been so pleased to be wrong. Welcome back! Cheers --Dweller (talk) 13:52, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Mr Coffee logo.gif)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Mr Coffee logo.gif. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 01:46, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:Long captions[edit]

If the template is intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{tranclusionless}}</noinclude>).

Suggestion for editcount script[edit]

Dear Interiot,

Just thought: isn't the number of bytes a user contributes (or deletes) relevant for the editcount script? User may delete: negative diff of article file size, or contribute new material: positive diff of file sizes.

Wikimedia edit counter[edit]

Something's wrong with the graph machine on your edit counter: http://tools.wikimedia.de/~interiot/cgi-bin/count_edits?user=durzatwink&dbname=enwiki_p. That is an example. If one clicks the gray square that says "OPT IN", it says that there is an SQL error 403. Can you fix it? contribsSTYROFOAM☭1994TALK 02:53, 26 February 2008 (UTC) (answer at my talk page)

Fair use rationale for Image:MonsterGarage.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to Image:MonsterGarage.jpg. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use. Suggestions on how to do so can be found here.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If you have uploaded other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Project FMF (talk) 03:58, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Disputed fair use rationale for Image:NOVA logo.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading Image:NOVA logo.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this image under "fair use" may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the image description page and add or clarify the reason why the image qualifies for fair use. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a fair use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for images used under the fair use policy require both a copyright tag and a fair use rationale.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it might be deleted by adminstrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion.

I wanted a tool that ranked articles in terms of my mainspace edits to them - the top 15 mainspace edits are listed in the Wannabe Kate tool, but as I have nearly 30k edits and many articles, I like to keep track of articles I may have edited alot in a desire to get them to a semi-stable point of GA or FA status. If you are unable to make a tool like this can you let me know who could? I am sure Dweller and Awadewit among others would like it too :)

My edit count.[edit]

Hello. The edit counting chart is a great thing, but I have n issue to address. It's probably minor, but I know I can't fix it. Yesterday, I created a template for the band Vintersorg. This is that template. I have donated three edits to that template, but the edit counting chart is only acknowledging two of the edits. Is there anything that you can do about that? Thanks. BTC 19:12, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Your tool[edit]

This one, specifically. I don't understand the average edits per day. The number doesn't make sense even if the first day was when Wikipedia started. The counter claims that I only have made 0.61 edits/day. In reality, the number is much, much higher. Enigma message Review 01:30, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I came here about the same thing... It says I have 4.8 edits per day, but it is closer to 40. [2] There must be an error somewhere. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 18:00, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:NOVA logo.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:NOVA logo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 12:08, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Tool1/WannabeKate[edit]

I have been playing with your tool, for example here and sometimes I notice that it seems to be possibly "confused" and divide the edits of a page into two, the page and its archive. For example, in this case with KillerChihuahua, her 2nd and 3rd most heavily edited article talk pages are:

  • 245 Intelligent design
  • 241 Intelligent design/Archive 23

Does that mean she has a total of 486 talk page edits on Intelligent design? Or what? Thanks.--Filll (talk) 18:13, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Articles Started Tool[edit]

I just whipped up a PHP script on my local MediaWiki site to show articles started by a user, and was just wishing I could run it on the Wikimedia servers... In the course of poking around I saw your tool, but noticed that it's only done by request. Does it take a long time to run? (It's nice and snappy on mine, but my database is about 10MB and cached in RAM...) In any case, would you be so kind as to run a report for my username when you get a chance? No sense in me duplicating your efforts and trying to sign up for the toolserver. Fogster (talk) 18:58, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Counter tool[edit]

According to this I have 3.01 edits/day and over 40,000 edits which would mean I had been editing wikipedia for well over 30 years. The figure may be out to the power of ten )as I have been editing somewhat over 3 years with this account, though that is just a guess. Thanks, SqueakBox 16:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Opt in (User edit counter)[edit]

Although I was opt in in the past when I was user Jeroenvrp on the Dutch Wikipedia, now after my account is renamed to Jeroen, I have to opt in again. When I click on the "Opt in"-image I get the following error for a while now:

Duplicate Image:Fire sign.png[edit]

Information icon.svg

Hello, this is a message from an automated bot. A tag has been placed on Image:Fire sign.png, by another Wikipedia user, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. The tag claims that it should be speedily deleted because Image:Fire sign.png is a duplicate of an already existing article, category or image.

To contest the tagging and request that administrators wait before possibly deleting Image:Fire sign.png, 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.

Your counter in the Wikipedia user interface[edit]

Hi Interiot. In case you still read your talk page sometimes:

We are now using your counter in the Wikipedia user interface. It is in the box at the bottom of all logged in user's contributions pages.

Now we have a concern: The counter is set to default not render the two upper graphs. We want to know if that is on purpose to save tool server load? We would like to know that before we add the parameter to make those images render. Since the link in that contributions page box perhaps causes many thousands of requests a day to your counter. So I wonder: Is it okay that we add the parameter to the URL in that box or not?

Here is our discussion about this at the talk page of that contributions page box: MediaWiki talk:Sp-contributions-footer#Add &showgraphs=2d to interiot. I'd love if you could respond over there.

Tool1 appears to be malfunctioning[edit]

I just went to check my edit count with Tool1, and it put it down to 5403 for some reason. Special:Preferences says my edit count is in the 7000s, as have past counts with Tool1.

Problem with the edit counter[edit]

Days ago, Tool1 reported me passing the 8000th edit line, but now it says I have 7871 edits. I've checked Special:Contributions/Admiral Norton and I have more than 8000. The Tool3 also corroborates that. I'd like you to look into this. Admiral Norton (talk) 12:16, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

I have a similar problem Tool1 says I have 1962 edits, but I do have about 2900 (including >600 at group (mathematics), which are completely lost in the counter). Jakob.scholbach (talk) 15:22, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
I, too am having the problem with Tool1. I did have over 5,000 edits last week, and now have only about 4,500, with dozens of edit being removed from the 12/2007 and 1/2008 months. Tool3, however, seems to show my correct number of edits. Timmeh! 17:59, 15 January 2009 (UTC)
Same here - this seems to be a problem with Tool1 no longer counting "File" or "Image" (the depreciated type) edits. - AKeen (talk) 18:15, 16 January 2009 (UTC)
I compared tool1 and tool3's counts of my "mainspace" edits, and tool1 shows 700 less than tool3. For me, it deleted mostly mainspace edits; I haven't made many image or file edits. Timmeh! 02:26, 18 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, Imitation Kate is broken. For those concerned, this tool is similar and works, though it only shows top user talk and top mainspace edits. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 06:41, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Empty Line in tool1[edit]

Ran tool1 on myself today, and noticed that my second most frequently edited page was a blank line- but I have 80 edits there. The HTML generated is:

Edit counter[edit]

Hi, for some reason the edit counter (http://toolserver.org/~interiot/cgi-bin/count_edits?user=Qllach&dbname=cawiki_p) seems to have stopped at the end of 2008, I can't see my edits in January 2009. Thanks for checking it.--Qllach (talk) 17:57, 29 January 2009 (UTC)

I find that my total edit count is decreasing month by month. On Feb 2, 2009, it is 21231. Back on January 2, 2009, it was 22789. The articles I edited in January 2009 have certainly not all been deleted, since the tool presently credits me with several hundred edits in January 2009. What is going on? Was it wrong on Jan 2 or is it wrong now? Has it been infected with the software used to count votes on electronic voting machines in some U.S. states? If a Wikipedia user does several hundred edits a month, the total should NOT DECREASE! Thanks. Edison (talk) 02:18, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

"count" tool: one article left blank[edit]

  • Hey I just ran your (awesome!) "count tool twice, and both times one article was left unnamed even though it had 195 edits. Any idea what's up with that? Tks Ling.Nut (talkWP:3IAR) 02:20, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with File:PopulousII.gif[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:PopulousII.gif. You've indicated that the image is being used under a claim of fair use, but you have not provided an adequate explanation for why it meets Wikipedia's requirements for such images. In particular, for each page the image is used on, the image must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Can you please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for each article the image is used in.
  • That every article it is used on is linked to from its description page.

Why my editcounter doesn't show any graph?[edit]

TStoc[edit]

Hi, I've added all my tools to TStoc (putting me at the top of your tool count by a wide margin ;-) and I'd like to mention a few issues with your (otherwise splendid) tool:

  • The List of tools not yet registered shows my CommonsHelper, even though it has been on TSoc for quite a while. Maybe you're not checking for URLs without the server name? I've added the "short form" URL as also-url for all my tools, and hope that it will solve the problem (currently it doesn't, but maybe it's a cache issue)
  • Your tags appear to be case-sensitive. I suggest to make them lowercase, so there won't be tools with "Commons" and others with "commons"
  • Clicking on the PMID tag, I get "No tools matched that criteria". However, there is a tool by Holek that has the PMID tag.

So much for complaining ;-) --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:15, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:BabaORiley FR.jpg[edit]

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.
