Twinkle talk page posts[edit]

Hi, is there any way that situations like this can be avoided: there's a single RfD discussion for a group of related redirects and probably there's no need for their creator to receive a long string of individual talk page notifications for each of them. – Uanfala (talk) 11:27, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

@Uanfala: Sorry, next time I'll combine them. I'm still not used to it posting notices for the target pages DannyS712 (talk) 15:19, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Grayscale Investments[edit]

Hi DannyS712, I wanted to ask if you were able to review some edits you and I had been working on for the Draft:Grayscale_Investments article. I made modifications to meet the criteria you requested and resubmitted the article for review. Hoping to see it moved to the mainspace soon! Thank you for your continued collaboration.

Administrators' newsletter – June 2019[edit]

News and updates for administrators from the past month (May 2019).

Administrator changes

removed AndonicConsumed CrustaceanEnigmamanEuryalusEWS23HereToHelpNv8200paPeripitusStringTheory11Vejvančický

CheckUser changes

removed Ivanvector

Guideline and policy news

  • An RfC seeks to clarify whether WP:OUTING should include information on just the English Wikipedia or any Wikimedia project.
  • An RfC on WT:RfA concluded that Requests for adminship and bureaucratship are discussions seeking to build consensus.
  • An RfC proposal to make the templates for discussion (TfD) process more like the requested moves (RM) process, i.e. "as a clearinghouse of template discussions", was closed as successful.

Technical news

  • The CSD feature of Twinkle now allows admins to notify page creators of deletion if the page had not been tagged. The default behavior matches that of tagging notifications, and replaces the ability to open the user talk page upon deletion. You can customize which criteria receive notifications in your Twinkle preferences: look for Notify page creator when deleting under these criteria.
  • Twinkle's d-batch (batch delete) feature now supports deleting subpages (and related redirects and talk pages) of each page. The pages will be listed first but use with caution! The und-batch (batch undelete) option can now also restore talk pages.

Useboxes categorization[edit]

DannyS712, thank you for creating the userboxes. I would like to remind you that one of the tasks of WikiProject Userboxes is diffusing large userbox categories. I've already moved some the userboxes from Category:Userboxes to a more narrow category. —⁠andrybak (talk) 21:24, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Found new set of categories that need merging[edit]

Scientific society redirects to learned society, but we have separate trees for Category:Learned societies and Category:Scientific societies, which for some strange reason now have historical societies classified as learned but no scientific... (ex. Category:Learned societies by subject vs Category:Scientific societies by subject). Both have 'by country' that need to be merged (Category:Learned societies by country, scientific one doesn't have a container cat and they are just listed in main). Help :) --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:26, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@Piotrus: sure. What specifically do you want tagged, and what do you want the tag to be? --DannyS712 (talk) 03:33, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
I would like to propose a category merger for scientific tree to the learned tree, and I think all of the subcategories need a tag, some for merger, some for just renaming if there is no direct equivalent (like for most of the 'by subject'). I hope you have some tools that can help automate this rather then us having to tag each one by hand? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:40, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
@Piotrus: I can automate it, I just need a list of what to merge, what to rename, and what to delete, etc --DannyS712 (talk) 03:41, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

To rename (from scientific to learned):

To merge (from s to l):

All other categories and articles in parent category Category:Scientific societies like Category:Academies of sciences just need to be recategorized following the merger of the parent. I think that covers all? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 03:18, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

@Piotrus: Sure, file the CfD so I have something to link to, and I'll process this. It has to be the same day (UTC) though, so try to do it early in the (UTC) day if possible. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 03:09, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

File mover granted[edit]

Wikipedia File mover.svg

Hello DannyS712. Your account has been granted the "filemover" user right, either following a request for it or due to a clear need for the ability to move files. Please take a moment to review Wikipedia:File mover for more information on this user right and under what circumstances it is okay to move files. When you move a file please remember to update any links to the new name as well! If you do not want the file mover right anymore, just let me know, and I'll remove it. Thank you, and happy editing! ~Swarm~ {sting} 06:10, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

@Swarm: Thanks so much --DannyS712 (talk) 06:13, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
@Swarm: I have a question though: the note at Special:Move says that "Leaving a redirect from the prior title to the new is the norm for page moves for various reasons, such as that the prior title often has numerous internal and incoming links that would be broken upon the move and that it may be a likely search term. By contrast, such concerns are not normally applicable to file titles, which are often only linked from the one or two pages on which the file appears. Accordingly, unless this file is included in many pages (check using what links here; do not rely solely on the file links at the bottom of the file page), please consider manually changing all links to the old title to the new title, and then moving the file without leaving a redirect behind. The option to leave a redirect behind is checked by default, and must be unticked if you take this course." However, Wikipedia:Page mover#Suppress redirect criteria lists the situations where redirects can be suppressed, and says that "suppressing redirects in other cases may result in the revocation of page mover rights" - can you clarify? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 06:23, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) Congrats. Everytime you use the "Suppress redirect" option, You are basically doing 2 things.
First is the renaming of the file and it should be done as per the policy see WP:FMNN
Second you are CSDing the redirect that would normally have been created. So before you supress the redirect, you should make sure that your action is in accordance with one of the valid reasons to WP:CSD a redirect. If you cant think of a valid reason to suppress the redirect, you should not suppress it.
If you violate the above conditions repeatedly you will loose the FM bits. Good luck. --DBigXray 09:18, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@DBigXray: in that case, the dialogue at Special:Move (determined by MediaWiki:Movepagetext-noredirectfixer, take a look at the source for what I am referring to) should probably be changed DannyS712 (talk) 09:23, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
I looked at your links. Cant find anything wrong. Can you quote what exactly you want changed in a Change X to Y format. --DBigXray 09:26, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@DBigXray: The movepagetext includes the part listed below, which conflicts with the policy
{{#ifeq: {{NAMESPACE:{{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1|2}}}} | {{ns:File}} |
 {{#ifeq:{{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1|3}}||{{notice|Using the form below will rename a file, moving all of its history to the new name. This option is only available to administrators and file movers.

Leaving a [[Wikipedia:Redirect|redirect]] from the prior title to the new is the norm for ''page moves'' for various reasons, such as that the prior title often has numerous internal and incoming links that would be broken upon the move and that it may be a likely search term. By contrast, such concerns are not normally applicable to file titles, which are often only linked from the one or two pages on which the file appears. Accordingly, unless this file is included in many pages (check using [[Help:What links here|what links here]]; do not rely solely on the file links at the bottom of the file page), please consider manually changing all links to the old title to the new title, and then moving the file without leaving a redirect behind. The option to leave a redirect behind is checked by default, and must be unticked if you take this course.

Please remember after the move to revisit the file page and remove {{tl|rename media}} or any other code that requested the move. Please also consider [[Wikipedia:Moving files to Commons|moving this page to Commons]] if it is a public domain release or under a [[Commons:Licensing#Acceptable licenses|suitable free license]].
 }}
and should probably be changed --DannyS712 (talk) 15:11, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
It looks good to me. What is your change proposal. I guess the above language must have been selected based on some consensus discussion somewhere. --DBigXray 06:45, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@DBigXray: What do you mean "it looks good" - the move instructions say one thing, and the policy page says something else!!! --DannyS712 (talk) 06:47, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
  • It seems you are seeing something that I have repeatedly failed to notice (and still do due to lack of a X to Y format). May be you can post your edit suggestion on the policy talk page for wider feedback. --DBigXray 09:30, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Out of curiosity[edit]

Special:Diff/901170178. That script looks ... fascinating. What does it do? Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 05:08, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

@Suffusion of Yellow: Wow, how did you find it? Any way, its (a little bit) based off of your edit filter helper - the goal is to be able to select any previous revision, and from there force an edit conflict with the present revision, so that you can selectively undo previous edits. See meta:Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Admins and patrollers#Allow partial reverts for edits. I figured the new visual edit conflict wizard would be a good interface to use. Also, ygm --DannyS712 (talk) 05:11, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
I have your common.js watchlisted (It's more interesting than most userpages Face-grin.svg), so it wasn't that hard to find. Anyway, I replied to the first email you sent today. If you sent another one, I didn't get it.
If you're trying to figure out how MediaWiki decides when there's an edit conflict, I've done I little digging myself. AFAIK, it's just calling GNU diff3! So the exact description of the algorithm is here. Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 06:05, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@Suffusion of Yellow: hmm, good to know. I don't intend to read all of that, but I saw how you set the old revision with your script and experimented from there. Anyway, since edit conflicts don't work with yourself, if you don't mind I'll keep testing the script from time to time on your pages (and revert myself, of course) DannyS712 (talk) 06:08, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Sure, no problem. Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 06:14, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@Suffusion of Yellow: Also, thanks for testing 123 - I can't see it, but MusikBot tells me you did something, so I'm hopeful that in the medium-term it can be activated. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help DannyS712 (talk) 06:16, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

For your efforts in combating vandalism. Thanks! You're even faster than I am every now and then (though this could be due to the lag from the Windows 10 Update on my computer). You really seem to be on top of things. LightandDark2000 🌀 (talk) 06:00, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@LightandDark2000: wow I was in the middle of sending you the same thing. I use User:DannyS712/ContribSearch, made by a now-retired user, to easily see new changes by an editor. I set it to 5 changes total so that it wouldn't take long to update, and it refreshes every 3 seconds. Maybe that's why I'm faster --DannyS712 (talk) 06:03, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Your discussion close at Talk:Bitcoin Cash[edit]

Hi, I want to discuss your close at Talk:Bitcoin Cash. What I am missing in your close is a reflection of the problem that the "option B" you chose as having consensus is not confirmed by the cited sources. Can you explain it to me, please? Thanks. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 08:31, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ladislav Mecir: Both option A and B agree that Bitcoin cash is sometimes referred to as Bcash. The source from A, [1], says "Bitcoin Cash detractors like to call the cryptocurrency “Bcash,” “Btrash,” or simply, a scam," - thus both proposals agree that it is sometimes referred to as Bcash. The sources for B specifically also use Bcash: "Bitcoin Cash or “Bcash,”", "Bitcoin Cash, now also known as “Bcash,”", "parts of the community are referring to the new token as Bcash" - those are the first 3 of the sources cited specifically for option B. I checked the cited sources before the close, since so much of the discussion was about how it is named, and see evidence that it is indeed, at least sometimes, called Bcash. DannyS712 (talk) 08:40, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Right, that part of the "option B" seems to be confirmed by the sources. Nevertheless, there is also the first part of the "optionB" stating: "The naming of Bitcoin Cash is contentious;" and this part is not confirmed by the cited sources. In my opinion, this part reverts the facts, trying to inform the reader that the "Bitcoin Cash" name is contentious without having any source confirming this claim. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 09:07, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@Ladislav Mecir: (edit conflict) There wasn't any (as far as I could see) discussion about whether or not it was contentious, and given that an RfC had to be held it seems to me that it is contentious. That being said, I was primarily persuaded by the arguments about NPOV and DUE weight. The consensus favored option B, and from a policy perspective it is at least as acceptable as option A. Does that make sense? --DannyS712 (talk) 09:13, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your reponse. It does make sense, as far as the second part of the "option B" is concerned. As far as the first part (the part having a prominent position in the "option B") is concerned, it ignores the fact that the contentious nature of the "Bitcoin Cash" name is not confirmed by any cited source. I know that there are editors trying to cite the discussion as the proof, but that is against the Wikipedia policies, as far as I am informed. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 09:20, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@Ladislav Mecir: yes, the discussion itself can't be cited, and I'm sorry I personally can't track down a source at the moment, though I believe that those who were supporting B have some (I didn't read all of the sources listed) - maybe tag a CN template there? DannyS712 (talk) 09:22, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Well, I think that what is necessary is to appeal the close based on the fact that the Wikipedia policies were replaced by a logically incorrect conclusion that if there is a disagreement on formulation, the subject itself must be contentious in nature. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 09:26, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@Ladislav Mecir: I did not say that it was contentious because an RfC was held, I said that it seems to be contentious because an RfC needed to be held. The close was based on the consensus that I saw at the discussion. Maybe wait a few days and see if the contentious part is sourced? --DannyS712 (talk) 09:28, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Well, I think that your suggestion misses the purpose of the RfC. It is to find whether the Wikipedia policies are held. Since they are not, the "option B" should not have been picked as consensual, so an appeal is justified. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 09:32, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
@Ladislav Mecir: I have reverted my close - clearly there is more to this than just what was written in the discussion --DannyS712 (talk) 09:40, 10 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you. Maybe my contributions were also a part of the problem, since I may not have explained the issue as well as I intended. Ladislav Mecir (talk) 09:46, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Again a little help at gl.wiki[edit]

Hi Danny, I need again a little help with an user script, I hope you can help me. I'm using User:Joeytje50/JWB at Galician Wikipedia. It works fine, but there is a little issue. At "Editing" tab, you can set "Enable RegEx Typo Fixing", the problem is that at Galician Wikipedia that control points to Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos, the english typos, and it should point to Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos at gl.wiki. I told it to Joeytje50, User_talk:Joeytje50#Enabling_RegEx_Typo_Fixing_Javascript_Wiki_Browser_in_Galician_Wikipedia, but I have not got an answer. We need that tool al gl.wiki because our users don't know how to use the normal bots, and with this tool they can do many tasks of this style, and if we fix that, they will be able to improve the articles even more. Could you review it? O:) Bye, Elisardojm (talk) 09:11, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

@Elisardojm: sure, I'll take a look. Are you importing the english JWB directly, or did you make a fork of it on your own site? --DannyS712 (talk) 18:09, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Hi, We are importing it from en.wiki, you can see it here. Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 20:30, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
@Elisardojm: I'll try to debug it before the weekend. --DannyS712 (talk) 23:53, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Great! :) Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 06:36, 12 June 2019 (UTC)
@Elisardojm: Can you give me permission to use it there? DannyS712 (talk) 09:27, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi, I can give you permission to use it at gl.wiki, It's done, but at en.wiki you should request at Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage. Bye, --Elisardojm (talk) 10:31, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

@Elisardojm: I already have permission on enwiki. --DannyS712 (talk) 16:17, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
Ah, ok, I added your user to gl.wiki, it should works now... Bye, Elisardojm (talk) 17:44, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

Presbyterian Church of Ghana[edit]

@ DannyS712 🍁 (talk) The content of the link you posted (https://ghanachurch.com/presbyterian-church-of-ghana/) was actually copied from the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Wikipedia article if you look at the dates. That webpage article was dated 31 March 2018, while the wiki information predates it. A little due diligence could have helped. Kandymotownie ν) 1:00, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

@Kandymotownie: I'm so sorry, I didn't see the date - that text size is tiny! I used ctrl-f to search the page for "on", "as of", "updated", "published", etc. and I didn't find it. Sorry --DannyS712 (talk) 01:03, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: No worries! Kandymotownie ν) 1:12, 13 June 2019 (UTC)
@Kandymotownie: having said that, JJMC89 just reverted your actions, so maybe there is an issue --DannyS712 (talk) 05:23, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
@DannyS712: I think the real issue is the website (https://ghanachurch.com/presbyterian-church-of-ghana/) copied from the wiki article. The original references had already been listed in the Presbyterian Church of Ghana wiki article but I understand the admin would like to investigate any copyright violation before resolution. Sometimes, it seems there's a rush to delete content without extra caution and this is one of those examples. Kandymotownie ν) 17:33, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

more coding help[edit]

Hey Danny!

I'm trying to figure out what I did wrong with User:MJL/textDisallow.js. The goal is to simply highlight instances of the word "Disallow" on Special:AbuseLog. Can you help by taking a look at it when you get a chance? –MJLTalk 20:23, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

@MJL: sure, I'll take a look --DannyS712 (talk) 20:47, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

No problem. There are more important matters, but I'm generally quite paranoid about that subject, as you know. Face-wink.svg Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 02:16, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Talk:African humid period#Merger discussion with Neolithic subpluvial[edit]

Greetings,

several months ago you closed the merger discussion on Talk:African humid period#Merger discussion with Neolithic subpluvial as "no consensus" saying that there was not enough discussion here to establish a consensus. I was wondering if in light of the discussion, holding a redirect discussion for Neolithic subpluvial (i.e an AFD, as redirectings are discussed there) may make sense instead; the key objection to the merge was that merging content would increase the already humongous size of African humid period even more and that much of the content on Neolithic subpluvial is already on African humid period but the objecting editor noted that deletion might make sense instead. As you are the closer of the merger discussion and I was both the initiator of the discussion and the main author of AHP, I wanted to ask for your comments before reopening the discussion in any form. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 10:10, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Jo-Jo Eumerus: Well, shouldn't redirect discussions occur at RfD? Otherwise, I see no reason why you shouldn't go ahead with your plan --DannyS712 (talk) 10:24, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
RFD is for discussing pages that are redirects, not these which one is proposing should become redirects, as far as I know. JoJo Eumerus mobile (talk) 11:01, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
@JoJo Eumerus mobile: Oh, I misunderstood (you linked to a redirect) - sure, go ahead --DannyS712 (talk) 11:20, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@TonyBallioni: no objection from me. Thanks for letting me know --DannyS712 (talk) 19:04, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Draft categories on drafts[edit]

DannyS712 bot removed Category:The Walt Disney Company drafts from a draft.[7] The category is intended for drafts. Can the bot be coded to not remove categories with Draft/Drafts/draft/drafts in the name? Category:Draft articles has many. Another thing, [8] looks confusing on the rendered page because the category links are piped. I think {{Draft categories}} is better [9] but I made it so I may be biased. Could the bot use it? PrimeHunter (talk) 08:18, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

@PrimeHunter: The bot operates based on Module:AFC submission catcheck's detection of categories being written on the page - I have included ignoring categories that end in "drafts", which should fix it. Sorry about that. About the {{draft categories}} part, that would be a lot more complicated to code - can I get back to you about if I can implement it? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 08:28, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks. That handles Category:The Walt Disney Company drafts. I see "Category:Drafts about ..." is already handled. Category:Draft articles is usually added by templates. A search [10] only found two current exceptions. Category:Promising draft articles appears to always be added by a template. {{draft categories}} is not important. PrimeHunter (talk) 08:57, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
@PrimeHunter: I changed "Drafts about..." to just "Drafts..." DannyS712 (talk) 08:59, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #369[edit]

Redirect edge case?[edit]

I came across Arturs Zagars –> Artūrs Žagars in my patrols today, which seems like something your bot should have picked up. My guess is that either the ū or the ž doesn't have an ASCII base character mapping. signed, Rosguill talk 18:19, 17 June 2019 (UTC)

@Rosguill: I'll check, but my first guess is that it was just created after I last ran the bot - see creation log --DannyS712 (talk) 00:12, 18 June 2019 (UTC)
