Pete the Cat[edit]

Hey there, not sure how much interest you have in the topic, but I was going to TNT that article if you wanted in on it. My work (very much in progress) is on my sandbox either way, thanks for reverting those edits. Oh and hi! Drewmutt (^ᴥ^) talk 22:35, 5 October 2017 (UTC)

Should Template:trimc be used in Template:toolbar?[edit]

I don't understand the code well enough to implement it without breaking something, but it looks like putting {{trimc}} into {{toolbar}} might eliminate some of the Linter double-colon errors. See Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/IncidentArchive572 for an example of a double-colon link used inside of {{toolbar}}. Thanks for taking a look. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:30, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

My mistake, it looks like you already fixed the Toolbar module. Nice work. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:33, 13 October 2017 (UTC)[edit]

Hello! Are you the maintainer of this tool? If yes, is it okay to this tool in the german wikipedia for connecting to freenode? The guys there are a little bit sleepy (sorry) and use still the direct link which in (standard installation of) firefox connects to mibbit, but mibbit seems to be blocked by freenode. Now I have seen that the en-WP uses this tool, but since de-WP is not a small one I would like to ask before. Thanks. --Wurgl (talk) 06:53, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

@Wurgl: Feel free to use it. Make sure to look at the documentation at on how to configure the randomly generated names. Unless you want the names to be in English, you'll have to create a page on dewiki based on Wikipedia:IRC help disclaimer/nicks and call it out using the baseurl= parameter. --Ahecht (TALK

Thanks! The web interface seems to be in the local language (for me in german) which is fine. The start page without parameter consent=yes is in english, is there some way to localize that page too – if we decide to use it. --Wurgl (talk) 14:08, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
@Wurgl: That parameter was added just to avoid toolforge policies that prohibit blind redirects, but should never actually be seen by end users. I would localize it on a page on dewiki that includes the appropriate disclaimer (like Wikipedia:IRC help disclaimer des) and then just always pass consent=yes. --Ahecht (TALK

New Page Reviewer Newsletter[edit]

Hello Ahecht, thank you for your efforts reviewing new pages!
Wikipedia New page reviewer.svg

Backlog update:

  • The new page backlog is currently at 12,878 pages. We have worked hard to decrease from over 22,000, but more hard work is needed! Please consider reviewing even just a few pages a day.
  • We have successfully cleared the backlog of pages created by non-confirmed accounts before ACTRIAL. Thank you to everyone who participated in that drive.

Technology update:

  • Primefac has created a script that will assist in requesting revision deletion for copyright violations that are often found in new pages. For more information see User:Primefac/revdel.

General project update:

If you wish to opt-out of future mailings, go here. TonyBallioni (talk) 17:47, 21 October 2017 (UTC)
