Admin score tool[edit]

My account age shows up as NaN when using your admin score tool. I'm not thinking about becoming one myself, but perhaps others are running into the same issue. shoy (reactions) 13:49, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

Shoy, that's pretty weird. I can tell that it's not an issue with my tool (probably, at least). I make a specific API call to figure out when a user registered; note that in your case, it contains the text "registration: null". By contrast, the equivalent call with my username has a timestamp in the registration field. I'll look into why this was the case; it could be that your account came into existence through unconventional means, or that this is just a bug in MediaWiki itself. Anyway, thanks for bring this to my attention! APerson (talk!) 22:15, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for looking into this. My log [1] shows an account creation date (Sept. 2005), but this username was usurped in 2007. Maybe that's the problem? shoy (reactions) 12:12, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Shoy, yeah, that could be the problem. On the other hand, I usurped the username "APerson" myself a couple of years back, and as demonstrated, the tool doesn't have any issues with me. It could be something weird with how the usurpation happened. There are a few other logs I haven't checked yet, so I can go do that. In the meantime, are you aware of any other users that are facing the same problem? APerson (talk!) 17:42, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Not that I am aware of. shoy (reactions) 17:46, 24 July 2015 (UTC)
Digging into this, this is apparently a known issue for old accounts, see [2]. Thanks for making me feel old, WP. shoy (reactions) 14:17, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
Whoa, didn't think to check there. Thanks for reassuring me that this is a bug on WP's end. If there are any more people with this same issue, I wonder if we can get the shell group to run that PHP script (fixUserRegistration.php) mentioned there. APerson (talk!) 17:03, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

Yarico the musical[edit]

Hi APerson,

My last submission was declined due to not fulfilling the notability criterion. In your comment you mentioned that if there was a book written on the play it would be sufficient. In the reference section, number 3 - Frank Felstenstein's book is entirely about the play, its various treatments, historical significance etc. It just doesn't have "Yarico" in the title. Also, the play is mentioned quite extensively in Jenna Gibbs book listed in my reference section. Is that sufficient?

Many thanks Korzenaqlag (talk) 11:17, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Korzenaqlag, sorry - while checking the sources, I failed to notice from the JSTOR review I read that the book was actually talking about the play itself. I'll go accept it. APerson (talk!) 03:26, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Teahouse substitutions[edit]

Hi there. I saw that User:APersonBot is replacing (or whatever!) Teahouse invitation templates. Some of these templates use my (old) username, User:SarahStierch. Because of this, each time it replaces a template, it gets added to my watchlist. Is there a way that it can avoid doing that? Thanks for your consideration! Missvain (talk) 16:45, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Sure! I'll just put in a rule that if the bot sees "SarahStierch", it'll skip it so I can manually use your new username instead. APerson (talk!) 20:25, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

19:10:49, 2 August 2015 review of submission by Balzgana[edit] Balzgana (talk · contribs) Draft:Paul Friedlander (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs)

Balzgana (talk) 19:10, 2 August 2015 (UTC)


My reviewer declined my submission stating that it Need sources talking about the subject not just links to art galleries. However I do not agree with this as I tried to reference my sources correctly and if you look at the references list the first words are the actual in bedded links to where they talk about Paul Friedlander and the second one is the original source of websites. For example - [1]

Please reconsider as I've seen pages with less references or otherwise could I be given advice on what to do so this page could go 'live'? Would it be necessary to remove the information that cannot be referenced?

Many thanks

Wikipediholic test problem.[edit]

I have edited the wikipediholic test (there are now 147 questions) so you need to update the automateed version. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kernosky (talkcontribs) 10:44, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

Kernosky, thanks for contributing to the test! The automated test loads itself from the onwiki page every time someone opens it, so updating it isn't necessary. APerson (talk!) 20:49, 4 August 2015 (UTC) (updated 20:52, 4 August 2015 (UTC))
Oh yeah - when you added a question, you removed a parentheses from the previous one, which meant that the automated version didn't detect it anymore. I just fixed it. APerson (talk!) 20:52, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
