Edit warring on Barelvi and on editor talk pages.[edit]

Dear Jackmcbarn, I hope you are well. I notice that you blocked User:Lagoonaville once before. I'll be grateful if you will please look at his recent edits on the Barelvi page, its talk page and my own talk page. Thank you. Regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 08:12, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

I see this has already been taken care of. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:50, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you anyway for looking. Regards, George Custer's Sabre (talk) 16:31, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Talk:Gustav Geley[edit]

Hello, I saw you blocked (talk · contribs). Please note this comment as well. It's clearly a continuation of the conversation ("All right this is the last thing I'll post on here") and has same long, ranting style as The IP implicitly affirms the socks, or at least does not deny them, by saying "blocked, not banned...". See the matching name in the blog link at User:Pottinger's_cats, one of the socks. I probably wouldn't have mentioned this were not for the crazy anti-Semitic conspiracies coming from the Blastikus (talk · contribs) sock. Manul 17:10, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

@Manul: I don't have time to look over all of that right now. I advise you to go to WP:AIV or WP:SPI depending on how obvious it is. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:53, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

Location map arguments[edit]

Hi Jackmcbarn, I Hope you are doing good. I have noticed a weird issue on ta:Module:Location map in Tamil Wikipedia. The arguments were never passed from template to Module functions. where I need to pass this by manual reference ta:Template:Location map. In turn It is difficult to pass all arguments for Location map+ modules. Can you please advise me how to pass multiple arguments without referring their names in wikipedia Template? or do you have any suggestion to resolve this argument pass issue in Tamil Wikipedia --Neechalkaran (talk) 18:50, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

@Neechalkaran: Everything should be fixed now. Let me know if anything isn't. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:52, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for quick response. I understood that namespace(eg:Template) needs to replaced with local namespace. Now I made few customization to override Tamil names in puspin map. Thank you so much --Neechalkaran (talk) 23:43, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
@Neechalkaran: That change was actually in the wrong place. I undid it and redid it in the right place. Jackmcbarn (talk) 00:01, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
After you undid, new errors were created please check ta:பகுப்பு:Pages with script errors. actually I just renamed the Tamil value which are given in pushin_map to right English value to point correct map. is there any workaround which can directly redirect to English name? i.e 'இலங்கை' needs to refer 'Sri Lanka' as both connected in wikidata--Neechalkaran (talk) 00:34, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
@Neechalkaran: The errors look like they were a caching issue, since all the new ones went away when I purged them. Rather than editing the module to make an alias, just create a redirect at the old name's location. For example, since ta:Template:Location map இலங்கை redirects to ta:Template:Location map Sri Lanka, using இலங்கை as a pushpin_map value will cause the Sri Lanka map to be loaded. For map definitions that are modules, the redirect syntax looks a little bit different. If you need to make one of them, look at Module:Location map/data/World as an example. That should all work with Wikidata. Is something about that not working with it? Jackmcbarn (talk) 00:44, 5 December 2014 (UTC)

Help with Full Moon (MATTE event)[edit]

Now that MATTE Projects has been undeleted, just wondering how to change Full Moon (MATTE event) into its own article instead of a redirect. Thanks! OliverZD (talk) 20:22, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

You should wait until the new AfD finishes to make sure that it stays undeleted, so that you don't end up wasting work. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:06, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Blocked/banned user[edit]

I think that CSD category could do with clarifying. This isn't the first I've come across where they take it to be 'any edit by' instead of 'edits made AFTER the block/ban', which in practice must mean a sock, as they can't do it any other way. Perhaps 'sock' ought to be brought into the wording? I don't know how many our friend's tagged, but he's dealing with the remainder now. Peridon (talk) 20:14, 13 December 2014 (UTC)

I still need help with wikidata coords[edit]

Sorry, but I still can't see how to extract coords from wikidata, in a useful way. I just want values out, preferably long and lat separate, and icing on the cake would be separate values for deg-min-sec. Can't find any documentation anywhere. Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Wed 15:20, wikitime= 07:20, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@Unbuttered Parsnip: mw.wikibase.getEntity().claims.p625[0].mainsnak.datavalue.value is a table containing longitude and latitude. See Module:Location map for a working example. Jackmcbarn (talk) 16:27, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
I really meant from within a regular page, something such as {{#invoke:Wikidata|getRawValue|P625|FETCH_WIKIDATA}}. I note that getValue and getRawValue both return the same thing for coords. It basically needs some sort of parser, such {{formatnum:}} to change that into something to put into {{coord}}. I'm thinking of some kind of {{replace|"coords"| {{|}}| regexp \°':\}}, although it might need a bit more, if either or both arcseconds field(s) not present. --Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Thu 17:50, wikitime= 09:50, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
@Unbuttered Parsnip: You want to get the coordinates from Wikidata yourself and then pass them to {{coord}}? Why? Just have {{coord}} itself fetch them from Wikidata. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:54, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Actually I meant {{infobox settlement}} or similar, where {{coord}} is deprecated. I have been in contact with @Frietjes: who told me she is / you are working on a module:infobox settlement. That seems a whole lot easier than what I had in mind. I'll wait for it to happen. --Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Sat 23:58, wikitime= 15:58, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
@Unbuttered Parsnip: Template:Infobox settlement calls Template:Geobox coor which in turn calls Template:Coord. As long as Template:Coord ends up getting called eventually, it will get the coordinates from Wikidata if they weren't provided to it. Jackmcbarn (talk) 16:01, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Are you saying that removing coords from an {{infobox settlement}} will cause their extraction from wikidata instead? I tried it on one location, and nothing happened. Mind you, I didn't actually save it, just had a preview. BTW can you also confirm that coordinates either have both minutes (seconds), or neither.--Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Mon 23:17, wikitime= 15:17, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
@Unbuttered Parsnip: Can you link me to the page you tried? Also, I don't get what you're saying about minutes and seconds. There's nothing wrong with providing minutes and not seconds, and it already errors if you provide seconds and not minutes. Jackmcbarn (talk) 19:13, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
(a) Like I said, I didn't save it because it didn't work (didn't work in preview). You could try just about anything, I tried Santa Fe, Cebu, which I have now updated with a template to parse wikidata return. Meanwhile Frietjes is working on an infobox update that collects all wikidata 'automatically'.
(b) I meant can the coords be lop-sided, e.g. latitude has minutes and seconds but longitude only has minutes? I.e. either both minutes (or seconds) are provided, or neither.--Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Mon 07:46, wikitime= 23:46, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject Microsoft Participants[edit]

How do I remove the User Talk: and display only the user name and link to user page? For the sake of asthetics (this is the participant page that shows up on all WikiProject Microsoft Pages). Thank You, STJMLCC (talk) 20:39, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@STJMLCC: That's not easily done. The parser function that causes people to receive the mass mailings is what's generating the talk page link. Is it really necessary to change that? Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:09, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Sorry I am late to reply, I just got back from LAX. If it is going to be very difficult to do, it is not necessary. But, it would be superb if it could be done. I say this because that list serves a multitude of important functions. Thank you again,
STJMLCC (talk) 22:30, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

@STJMLCC: Actually, there is one thing I can try. I'll let you know if I get it to work. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:55, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Concord Production Inc.[edit]

You recently deleted Concord Production Inc. as a CSD#G7. It is a real thing though, Bruce Lee's production company, and the request to delete (by a now banned editor) may not have been in good faith. Not sure if it should survive on its own, it might be better merged into Bruce Lee or another article, but it's worth looking at.

Hey, about those titles with wiki markup that you have been moving ...[edit]

Hey Jackmcbarn. I just wanted to give you a quick heads-up about the titles that you have been moving from titles with wiki markup to titles without. First of all, thanks for restricting their existence. However, I want to give you a bit of a heads-up in regards to those titles: in the near future, I plan on creating another RfD like the one that I referenced to you previously to hopefully remove most of these titles once and for all. However, that can only be done without any disruption to Wikipedia if all incoming links are resolved after the page moves (for both articles that are moved and redirects) and if useful page histories are move to alternate titles (for redirects). Just a heads up. Also, if you would like to further help with this effort a bit, I have created a subpage in my user space to track the progress of this task; feel free to update the page if you so desire. In a nutshell, I created that page to track these titles and once all of the articles with wiki markup have been moved, edit histories have been transferred and incoming links fixed, I plan on making a new RFD nomination (I have started the draft of the nomination in the "Redirects" section so that the time-consuming chore of inputting the syntax and recalling each redirect's target does not have to be found again.) Steel1943 (talk) 23:54, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

@Steel1943: I'm thinking of a 4-stage process to get all of these fixed. The first stage, which I already started, is moving all of the non-redirects (except for the valid chemical names) to titles without markup. Once that's done, the second stage will be page-specific fixes, like article history under redirects that you mentioned. The third stage will by bypassing links, and the fourth stage will be RfD. Jackmcbarn (talk) 01:20, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
However you think would resolve these issues works for me as well, as long as any of the previously-mentioned tasks do not get overlooked. Thanks! Steel1943 (talk) 01:37, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

The hyphen in North-East is neither particularly correct nor incorrect, but simply a matter of taste. As it was hyphenated when the article was started the MOS recommends in such cases that it is retained. I'd appreciate it if you left it how it is!

@Ericoides: Sorry about that. I didn't know that was a style issue (I've never seen them written that way).

List of people from San Francisco and Edit filter #645[edit]

I don't understand why you decided to replace semi-protection on List of people from San Francisco with an edit filter. As shown by these edits, adding Annabeth isn't the only problem this page is faced with by anons trying tolist fictional people. And to quote from the instructions at Wikipedia:Edit filter/Requested, "Filters are applied to all edits. Therefore, problematic changes that apply to a single page are likely not suitable for an abuse filter." עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 06:01, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

@Od Mishehu: Emailed you a reply. Jackmcbarn (talk) 17:55, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
Having read your email, I have an answer - there's a good reason to semi-protect such lists: Even without this specific issue, these lists are frequently edited by anons/newcomers to include fictional characters and non-notable people. This has happenned before with this specific list - see here and here, for example. Semi protecting these lists helps deal with that. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 14:17, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Such a semi-protection would have to essentially last forever, which isn't really desirable in mainspace. @Postdlf: Do you have any comments about this, since you originally wanted to switch from protection to the filter? Jackmcbarn (talk) 18:48, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
I had semi-protected that page multiple times before and the vandal would always return as soon as the protection expired. I don't personally have an objection to permanent semi-protection, but I think the community at large does and someone always comes along later and unprotects it on the theory that enough time has passed or whatever. An edit filter seemed like the best and most targeted way to prevent the problem in the first place without the labor of continually watching, reverting, and blocking, and without the side-effect of restricting possibly valid edits. At the time I asked for an edit filter, the vandalism only involved the one character name; it expanded only after Chase was made a forbidden addition to that page. postdlf (talk) 19:24, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks you for your well-meaning edits, but Module:HtmlBuilder is not yet deprecated on other Wikis, so it still needs to be listed on those dependency pages.

@CFCF: It doesn't matter whether or not the other wikis have it marked deprecated. We still shouldn't import it to them, since our modules don't need it anymore (and if their modules need it, they'd already have it). Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:14, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

Vandal Blocker User Group[edit]

Hello Jackmcbarn, I've been highly interested in your original idea about a vandal blocker/stopper/fighter user group since you originally had this idea around 2 months back at Wikipedia:Village pump (idea lab)/Archive 15#New "vandal stopper" user group. There was a similar need like this for those users who wanted to work with protected templates and modules which ultimately lead to Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Template editor user right and finally created the template editor user right for them. And today it is highly useful for those people who do not want to be admins and just want to work in their area of interest. I would also highly appreciate if you and/or someone else could help me draft an RfC outlining its full procedure and process through which we can get the consensus for establishing this user right as well. Regards. TheGeneralUser (talk) 22:00, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Unjust deletion of my user page[edit]

With all due respect, you just deleted my userpage against the rules of Wikipedia. - Wikipedia:Criteria for speedy deletion#List of criteria - LINE 2 - "This excludes the sandbox and pages in the user namespace." Undescribed (talk) 19:58, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

I agree that the reason I used may have been wrong, now that you point me to that, but the deletion definitely was justified, by IAR if nothing else. Jackmcbarn (talk) 20:00, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
What is IAR if you don't mind me asking? I was never intentionally trying to violate rules in any way. I've been a dedicated editor for the past five years and made many very good edits. It was "gibberish" and I did not know I was wasting resources, I was merely practicing a certain typing pattern. Undescribed (talk) 20:04, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
@Undescribed: Linked. If you want to practice a typing pattern, you should use "Show preview" instead of saving. Such as high edit rate (about 10 edits per minute, for hours) is disruptive. Jackmcbarn (talk) 20:08, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
My apologies, I was unaware that it affects the server. How exactly does it "Waste resources"? Undescribed (talk) 20:10, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
And are there any rules that apply specifically to deletion of talk pages? Undescribed (talk) 20:12, 17 January 2015 (UTC)
@Undescribed: Every time you hit save, it created an entirely new copy of the page that now has to be saved forever (even if it's deleted). There were hundreds of revisions when I deleted it. Talk pages generally aren't deleted if they contain legitimate messages. Jackmcbarn (talk) 20:13, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Jackmcbarn!

I wrote the page for and you have deleted it, for reason I don't really understand.

The page construction was based off several existing pages and had no promotional type copy in it.

Is there a way it can be reinstated but with some suggested edits to help it get approved?


Dynacarl — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dynacarl (talkcontribs) 14:05, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

@Dynacarl: The issue wasn't that it seemed promotional. The issue is that not all subjects can have Wikipedia articles about them. They must be notable, meaning that reliable sources must have written about them. See WP:42 and WP:N for details. Jackmcbarn (talk) 16:45, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

You recently blocked me and and another user on the page for Tierra de reyes. I'm not thanking you sarcastically! It wasn't my intention to start an edit war, but I was dealing with another user that would delete my edits within minutes. The issue couldn't have resolved without third party intervention and my edits were restored after a review by an administrator. But, after the block expired the other user immediately went back to deleting my information. I have no interest in having to fight over getting accurate and useful information out there, so I'm done on here. Before leaving, I just wanted to to say thanks for fighting the good fight and working to help people and help get good information on site!!MJDecker (talk) 19:14, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Most of the files I've uploaded have had valid copyrights. The only problem I have is that several files which are my own work have been used elsewhere because I have granted that permission in the descriptions. In a few cases, however, I had already used the images on the internet elsewhere, and the fact that they are "somewhere else" seems to state that I am not the owner/creator. I need help with that. Aside from that, I am familiar, generally, with WP:COPYRIGHT.Qxukhgiels (talk) 21:28, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

@Qxukhgiels: If you can demonstrate that you are the copyright owner satisfactorily enough to get the deletions overturned, I'll restore you to the reviewer group. Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:29, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

@Qxukhgiels: I note that for that image at least, the other people's versions of it are higher resolution than yours. If they took the image from you, that would be impossible. Please explain. (If the explanation is that you do own the higher resolution version and have used it elsewhere, then please upload it.) Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:19, 3 February 2015 (UTC)

Newbie help request[edit]

Hello Jackmcbarn,

I'm a bit of a newbie here on Wikipedia and therefore am not completely familiar with the formality of how things are done here. I inadvertently found myself in a so-called editing war and when I was notified of this, I refrained from making anymore edits immediately (though I understand I can resume after 24 hours). I'm writing to you now because I suspect the same person may be using more than one account. I won't name any names just yet because the evidence admittedly isn't infallible but it's still quite compelling in my opinion. Both accounts have large gaps in their edit history and both have mysteriously appeared on the talk pages of two different articles (always one after the other) I have made edits to over the past few days (London and the French language). The two accounts in question also have some overlap in their fields of interest (i.e. there seems to be a lot of talk about Israel on both pages). Coincidence? I'm not so sure. My question to you is, would it be worth making a formal complaint and is the evidence I have given you here even enough to justify such a complaint? Thank you for your help. NorthernFactoid (talk) 02:54, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @NorthernFactoid: If a new editor makes questionable edits on one article then many editors will glance over the editor's other edits. As for WP:3RR, note that "The rule is not an entitlement to revert a page a specific number of times." Your edit on London has no support so far on the talk page. --NeilN talk to me 03:04, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
@NeilN: Excuse me? I'm not talking about my edits to London here. This has nothing to do with 'many editors glancing over the editor's other edits.' Get with it. NorthernFactoid (talk) 03:10, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
@NorthernFactoid: You wrote: "...two different articles I have made edits to over the past few days (London and the French language)". People who post to your talk page about one issue will likely have your talk page on their watchlists and might look at what is happening when people post to your talk page about other issues. By the way, pings won't work if you add signatures after your initial post. A ping and a signature have to be in a single edit for it to work. --NeilN talk to me 03:25, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
@NeilN: I'm talking about potential sock puppetry here. One person, two different accounts. Please don't distract from the topic at hand (but thanks for the ping tip) NorthernFactoid (talk) 03:30, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
Talk page stalker. Then i suggest you visit WP:SPI and file a complaint. I think you are overreacting here, frankly. WP:AGF. I would honestly suggest you engage on the relevant talk pages first. Create a dialogue, and seek consensus on the issues. SPA allegations are not minor matters. Regards Irondome (talk) 03:58, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Requesting view/help for 2 edit-filter related bugs on phabricator[edit]


Often I have to work on mr-wikipedia filters. Earlier resolution of two bugs namely T21565 and T48773 is likely to be helpful for our project.

In T21565 edit filters can track file uploads they can track comments of files but can not track upload and comments together.

About T48773 I suppose wikimedia software/search works properly about unicode word borders but unfortunately edit filter has not been able to do it till now.

I do not know if at all we can do some thing to get it expedited in resolving.

As one involved in SPIs, can you answer the following questions please.

1. If a checkuser spontaneously blocks a named account as a sock, with no SPI and no other discussion at all, should the blocked account be tagged as "confirmed" or as "suspected"?

2. Should a normal administrator (non-checkuser) blocking a named account ever tag it as "confirmed" when there has been no SPI and no checkuser involvement? (talk) 22:08, 5 March 2015 (UTC)

Coords (again!)[edit]

@Frietjes: has made changes to {{infobox settlement}} and {{infobox airport}} (among others maybe), allowing coords to be fetched direct from wikidata. This is fine, but the problem is that the coords saved on WD don't have any arcseconds, but the returned / displayed coords do, imputing a precision that isn't there (and not wanted to be there). What can be done? -- Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Sat 15:21, wikitime= 07:21, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

User:Unbuttered Parsnip, the problem is that the lat/long import from wikidata doesn't round when converting from dms to dec, so we cannot infer the dms precision from the number. I just refactored {{geobox coor}} to use module:geobox coor which has a hack to round the imported numbers if lats == longs == 0. the better fix would be to have the module that converts the dms to dec not return excessively precise numbers. once we have that, I can remove the hack from module:geobox coor. Frietjes (talk) 16:21, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
That's interesting because my {{ParseWDCoords}} doesn't receive any arcseconds when none had been input. So somewhere inside WD it knows the precision, it just isn't telling you! -- Unbuttered parsnip (talk) mytime= Sun 07:02, wikitime= 23:02, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.
