Help, please[edit]

A message left at Module talk:Citation/CS1/Archive 9#Change to lua library yesterday suggests that some code you wrote for the Citation Style 1 module is going to die on 18 February 2014. In particluar, mw.message.newRawMessage is going away. This seems a rather hard deadline. I'm concerned because I'm not quite clear on what's happening in that library function. Your change to use the library happened with this edit.

Can I go back to the pre-library function code without problems or is mw.message.newRawMessage doing other things for us that will require additional code?

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Climate scientist opinion.png or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

Keeping track of DOIs used.[edit]

Of interest to all devs on the Lua module Citation/CS1 @Dragons flight:, @Trappist the monk:, @Wikid77:

I'm working on the Open-Access Signalling Project, which aims to upload the full article text to wikisource and link it to the reference in Wikipedia. I'm writing the bot at the moment to do this, and I'm encountering a question - how do I keep track of the values of the template {{Cite doi}} and the doi parameter of {{Cite journal}}, in as close to real-time as possible?

Is it possible to modify code of {{Cite journal}} in such a way that it will make a record or push a stream of when the "doi" paramter is changed?

The most efficient approach I can come up with at the moment is to query the SQL servers on Labs in constant loop, returning the results of "What transcludes {{Cite doi}} and {{Cite journal}}" and seeing if the last_edited timestamp is newer than previous? If the last_edit is newer, then get the content of the page and see if the doi values has changed, checking against a local database. But this seems horribly ineffecient.

Thanks, Maximilianklein (talk) 18:43, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

If I understand what it is that you want, and I'm not sure that I do, I suspect that what you're looking for is not possible. But is 'real-time' tracking of the |doi= parameter in {{cite journal}} citations really necessary? Documents with doi identifiers don't change.

Hi Dragons flight. Is Template:RemoveCoins, which you created, still required? If not, I'll nominate it for deletion (or you can, if you prefer). Thanks. DH85868993 (talk) 13:00, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

gravitation[edit]

Please an answer.

Two last posts and then I go sleeping.

Gravitation Relativity Cosmology[edit]

I have put a small exercise

N738139[edit]

I am sorry to disturb you. I know you have other things to do than to answer my questions. But if we consider :

 High gravity on A, low gravity on B.
 :*Synchro0 : 00h00 on the two glocks.
 :*Synchro1 : 01h00 on glock A 00h59 on B.
 :*Synchro2 : sunrise, 02h00 on A 01h58 on B.
 :*Synchro3 : sunset, 06h00 on A 05h54 on B.
 The referential was A, now lets with B:
 :*Synchro0 : 00h00 on the two glocks.
 :*Synchro1 : 01h01 on glock A 01h00 on B.
 :*Synchro2 : sunrise, 02h02 on A 02h00 on B.
 :*Synchro3 : sunset, 06h06 on A 06h00 on B.
 B has to compare data with A at 6h00 for A. It means 5h54 for B

Am I wrong ?

Disputed non-free use rationale for File:Risks and Impacts of Global Warming.png[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Risks and Impacts of Global Warming.png. However, there is a concern that the rationale provided for using this file on Wikipedia may not meet the criteria required by Wikipedia:Non-free content. This can be corrected by going to the file description page and adding or clarifying the reason why the file qualifies under this policy. Adding and completing one of the templates available from Wikipedia:Non-free use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your file is in compliance with Wikipedia policy. Please be aware that a non-free use rationale is not the same as an image copyright tag; descriptions for files used under the non-free content policy require both a copyright tag and a non-free use rationale.

If it is determined that the file does not qualify under the non-free content policy, it might be deleted by an administrator within a few days in accordance with our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions, please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 16:11, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

RfA data[edit]

Hi Dragons flight. I've been thinking about collecting and analysing some RfA data and stumbled across your probability plot today. Just wondering how you collected the data for that plot and whether you wrote up any further analysis of it? Thanks, Sam Walton (talk) 23:23, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Revise caption on File:Climate science opinion2.png ?[edit]

Climate science opinion2.png

You may recall a discussion of this then-new chart at New bar chart. You seemed to agree that it would be better to change "Largely caused by humans" to "Significant human impact."

This never got done, and the issue has been revived at Graphic.

Would you be able to edit the chart to read ""Significant human impact?" This would seem to match the survey results more closely. Thanks in advance, Pete Tillman (talk) 04:26, 27 November 2014 (UTC)

Already done by another editor. You might check in at the discussion, to see if you agree with the mods proposed. Thanks, Pete Tillman (talk) 14:56, 4 December 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Risks and Impacts of Global Warming.png[edit]

However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image 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 images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

After you told me to look for it I found it in my spam folder. Under ordinary circumstances, I almost never check the spam folder so there would be a high probability of missing it, if you hadn't mentioned that it was coming. Keyword: Smaug. Google also added a big warning bar over top of it that said: "Be careful with this message. Our systems couldn't verify that this message was really sent by yahoo.com. You might want to avoid clicking links or replying with personal information." Dragons flight (talk) 18:24, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
Okay, thanks, that's extremely helpful. (I got a notice at 12:42 NYC time the message had been returned undeliverable.) I will simply delete the yahoo account, which seems entirely useless and create a new one. Feel free to delete or archive this, you've been very helpful. μηδείς (talk) 21:57, 6 December 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for unblocking! It is sad that I have to waste my time on vandals Lackope. Have you seen this [1], [2], [3], [4], [5] Montenegrins have become Serb-Montenegrins who speak only Serbian. Will Ukrainians in Canada to become a Russian-Ukrainians in Canada? I have to draw on each talk page that I'm right. [6], [7]... and others have him corrected --ChumleeS (talk) 12:14, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Lackope[edit]

I've noticed you've blocked the above mentioned user recently. I just want to point out that he is at it again. I've been following him for the past couple of weeks and this user is showing highly disruptive behavior. Now, while I don't agree entirely with ChumleeS method (he should have reported him already several times instead of reverting him) I believe his intentions are in good faith. This is not some content dispute, this is one user deleting content from one page (sourced with reliable references) and inserting content with dubious references (tabloids, daily portals, etc.) on other pages. I also believe this user has one other clone account User:Mitrale89 and also that he he was the same anon user User:212.200.65.244 which I personally reported and which got blocked about a week or so ago...they all have same modus operandi, same interests and identical rhetoric. Shokatz (talk) 13:51, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

this is not true because I do not disrupt anything I just enter valid sources in articles about Serbs, but for weeks these users(Shokatz and ChumleeS) remove sources because they do not like their content for i believe political reasons because they are from Croatia and Montenegro,and I do not have any clone account it is a ridiculous accusation.

Speedy deletion nomination of Template:Edit count[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:Edit count requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion because it is an unused duplicate of another template, or a hard-coded instance of another template. After seven days, if it is still unused and the speedy deletion tag has not been removed, the template will be deleted.

If the template is not actually the same as the other template noted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page explaining how this one is different so as to avoid any future mistakes (<noinclude>{{substituted}}</noinclude>).

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page's talk page, where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here.

Update your abuse filter: New user removing speedy deletion templates (29)[edit]

Please modify the above filter: Change "Warn, Tag" to "Warn, Disallow". WhiteWindow (talk) 14:17, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

Cervantes[edit]

The source cited but not quoted is 2008. Nothing is said about the proper attribution, and copvio covers unattributed statements of other authors even if they are out of copyright. It seems the 2008 source is inappropriate. Until the the copyvio tag should stand. As for the tools, I get "server error" when I try to check the rest of the text. But if you've read any of it it is a load of copy and paste not suitable for the project. If the 2008 source is proper, it is not attributed or put in quote marks. μηδείς (talk) 04:36, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Though related (and often simultaneous), WP:COPYVIO and WP:PLAGIARISM are separate issues. My contention is that {{copyvio}} is not appropriate for issues that consist solely of plagiarism. (I'm not saying that plagiarism is not an important issue, just that the full blanking of copyvio is not generally regarded as an appropriate or approved response.) Any way, I intend to step out of it, and let other people decide what to do, which is why I left a message at ANI. Dragons flight (talk) 04:43, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
This is the first time I have dealt with such an issue. I replied at ANI. If plagiarism is the "real" issue, that's fine with me. But the cited source is from 2008, so we seem to be stealing from them what stolt from others. I think a response from a regular copyvio editor can be awaited. I fear a large part of the article is below standards for more mundane reasons, but our disclaimer says copyvios will be deleted on sight. μηδείς (talk) 04:50, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Edit_filter#Feature_requests[edit]

Hi,

This has reference to your post at Wikipedia_talk:Edit_filter#Feature_requests. I am one of admin at mr language wikipedia and have been working on/maintaining mr wiki edit filters regularly.

I have registered quite a few feature request bugs on phabricator which will be help full for edit filter manager/admins and make their work easier, as below

क्रमांक Feature request Benefit or Purpose Phabricator no
1 Special:AbuseLog should be filterable by action taken, e.g. "disallow" disallowing filters and disallowed edits would be monitored more effectivelly (for falls positives etc.) T50961
2 Special:Tags - Tagged changes to show total of only currently visible logged numbers making Special:Tags user friendly for patrolling purposes T50369
3 Option to group filters & their logs Building and using a group of filters as deterence capability as and when needed; Easier for monitoring and improving specific group of filters; Easier for patrolling specific group of tasks of their choice for patrollers T49531
4 additional options to rate limit trigger More effective filter management, smarter messaging which will reduce feeling of harrassment on part of unconfirmed editors; will help to improve common editor's perception of edit filters as a good freindly facility. T49493
5 Ability to match text based on a negative lookbehind/lookahead regex edit filters work to the point; become more effective in controlling abuse T49495

Besides I am looking for earlier resolution of two priority bugs namely T21565 and T48773. Resolution of this will help wikimedia commons, many small wiki's and to some extant en wiki too.

  • Edit filters can track file uploads, they can track comments of files; but can not track upload and comments together and in T21565 we need to achieve the same.
  • 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, T48773 bug has critical importance level for indic wiki's, and certainly be useful to effectively control vandalism using indic script even on en wiki.

This is just to keep you informed and request whatever help possible about above fearure and problem bugs

Thanks and rgds

Which graph are you referring to, because to the one Piotrus is referring to doesn't have "typical edit" anywhere on it? Dragons flight (talk) 22:42, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
File:Wikipedia account age of average edit by registered user.png Carrite (talk) 01:17, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
It's just a colloquial way of saying average. Specifically, each edit by a non-bot registered user is associated with an account age (defined as the months elapsed since first edit by that account) and the plotted value is the mean of those associated ages for all edits made during each month.

Hi Dragons flight. Any idea where we are with getting some profiling back for edit filters? It would be great to be able to find the worst offenders for hitting the condition limit again. Thanks, Sam Walton (talk) 00:33, 14 July 2015 (UTC)

It's been discussed some, but nothing has been done. I would like to implement an updated version myself if no one gets to it, but I am currently very busy and am unsure when I might get to it. So, probably not soon. Dragons flight (talk) 01:26, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
