Tech News: 2016-20[edit]

16:01, 16 May 2016 (UTC)


Hi Jackmcbarn

I have seen wikipedias rules, the question is if you have? First of all I was given 2 weeks to translate my article into English by one of your editors? How come, if you agree that Iridescent based on that reason can delete the article? I guess you now have to see which editor you like the most :)

Second, the algorithme was proven to be working perfectly, with the code provided, so there shouldn't be an issue there.

Third, the only thing you had to check was if it was true I invented the algorithme, and that I am sure one of your editors with lots of knowledge about algorithmes could have given you an answer to.

If you still thinks that Iridescent shouldn't be removed as an editor, then provide me with your supervisors phone number, so I can talk with that person about this issue.

Regards David Hyldkrog — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cop77 (talkcontribs) 20:58, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

@Cop77: You would have got 2 weeks to translate your article if being written in the wrong language was its only flaw. However, that was not the case. Nobody cares whether the algorithm works. See WP:42 and WP:N for rules about what's allowed on Wikipedia. Also, the fact that you invented the algorithm is actually a strike against it; see WP:COI and WP:A11. Wikipedia is self-governing, so none of us have "supervisors". In fact, both Iridescent and I are both administrators here, and any other administrator you ask will also agree with us. Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:11, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

1. So how come the language part was mentioned as a reason for being deleted. 2. An obvious reason why it does matter if the algorithme works or not is that it can help software developers who face mutual exclusion problems. 3. At least you are honest enough to admit that editors protect each other no matter what, which is a big flaw in the way wikipedia works. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:24, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

1. When things are wrong with an article, correct procedure is to mention all of them, even if they're not all necessary to get it deleted. 2. That's not important to Wikipedia. 3. The fact that people agree with each other and disagree with you doesn't mean that they're protecting each other. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:29, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

Tech News addition[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your addition to the current Tech News draft.

Location map switcher logic[edit]

I just noticed the "switcher logic" at Module:Location map. Thanks for implementing that! As far as I can tell, it's not documented anywhere, but people are starting to quietly use it in infoboxes (which settles at least one recent disagreement)

I am not very good at Lua --- could you explain the feature to me, so that I can write some documentation? As I understand it, if you specify more than one location separated by a #, then the first one will be displayed, but the reader can select from any of them with a switcher UI element. Is that right?

Thanks! —hike395 (talk) 06:16, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

@Hike395: Your understanding is correct. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:54, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
I added documentation to {{Location map}}, and noticed a bug where the radio button selector does not line up with the map. If you'd like to take a look, see Template:Location map/doc. —hike395 (talk) 11:06, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Hike395: Yeah, I see what's going on. Apparently I only ever tested this inside of infoboxes, where the radio buttons look nice outside the map. I'll try to make it look good standalone too. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:17, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Sorry to say, I found another bug, and this one is more urgent. Take a look at Mono Mills, California. Ser Amantio di Nicolao has been running AWB on articles with {{Infobox settlement}}, changing the map parameter from (e.g.) California to California#USA. However, this particular article uses the |AlternativeMap= parameter to {{Location map}}. The switcher logic doesn't work when this is supplied -- as a short-term fix, the logic should ignore |AlternativeMap= and |overlay_image= for the second and subsequent maps.

As I said above, I am a terrible Lua programmer. I can try to fix this, but am not confident that I will do it correctly. Could you put in a fix?

In the longer term, I fear that feeding a #-separated list of maps is not a robust way of specifying multiple maps. The common way of doing this is to use extra parameters, such as |map1= or |map2=, and hence allow extra control parameters such as |AlternativeMap1= or |overlay_image2=. If we do decide to add extra parameters, we'll need to surface them in infoboxes (such as in {{Infobox settlement}}, where I just hacked out these parameters today!). We would also need to run AWB to redo the work that Set Amantio has been doing over the last few days.

I do like the multiple map feature -- {{location map}} is just tricky to get perfectly correct. —hike395 (talk) 07:11, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

@Hike395: I added an emergency fix for now that disables AlternativeMap when using the switcher. I'll come up with a solution that lets you specify different AlternativeMaps for different maps. As for why I used #-separated names instead of multiple parameters, I did that because of the sheer number of infoboxes that currently wrap location maps, to avoid all of them having to be changed. Jackmcbarn (talk) 16:12, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
And it's fixed properly now. Jackmcbarn (talk) 16:32, 4 July 2016 (UTC)

Pasterski Dear Jack McBarn,

Thank you for preventing vandalism on so many wikipedia pages. However, you locked the barn door on the Pasterski article after the horses were already stolen.

Can you please revert the page to what it was before the Greek and Netherlandian physics post-docs gutted it?

One appears to be Pasterki's former officemate and was turned down, if you know what I mean. The other tried to prevent her from joining their group in 2013—when she did join, she was the ONLY female—since then 8 other females have joined. They are livid with Pasterski for bringing in so many females.

The Greek one has been upset ever since he added his name to the Strominger page as a Doctor and then the strominger page was completely gutted. He seems to think Pasterski did it. It does not appear that she did.

Everyone outside of Harvard/Cambridge thinks the reason why Pasterski is getting media attention is because Hawking cited her. When in fact, it is because Strominger and Hawking and Perry mis-applied her Triangle and Memory Effects. She gave a Harvard Faculty Conference talk that Lubos Motl helped set up, where she warned, six months before the paper was published, that her ideas should NOT be applied to black hole hair. Lenny Susskind agrees with Pasterski—that is why Susskind and Pasterski were cited, as a 'different way to approach' the problem.

Hawking came to Harvard and had the strongest reactions to Pasterski (uncontrolled jaw movement and shaking) asking her to leave just about anytime he noticed her near him. Pasterski was then invited to Cambridge (by two physicists with a sense of humor that don't agree with Hawking) to talk to the issue. In those two talks, she called Strominger, Perry and Hawking's application of her work “naive” !!!

That resulted in Perry giving an afternoon talk to rebut. He was not originally on the schedule. He cited her work 7 times, cited her by name 7 additional times, and then invited her to spend Spring semester at Cambridge to 'work this out.'

Recently, Hawking deleted his citation of her in the PRL article by dropping the last arXiv digit of her completing the triangle for EM single author paper.

If the page is allowed to survive (Pasterski would be the first to admit that her ideas are not as great as Hawking thinks they are) please revert it to the point just before the two Greek edits (IP addresses, no names then -eg UVAL now, they point back to the Greek university where the post-docs father is a professor of computer science.)

Thank you,

Module:HS listed building[edit]

Hi Jackmcbarn, recently, there's been an effort to move the #coordinates call that Template:Coord does separately into Module:Coordinates. This almost became stable until a compatibility issue with Module:HS listed building was noted, that the direct Module call is no longer working. I've made updates to Module:HS listed building/sandbox (testcases) and intend to sync it in a few days when the Coordinates template and module go live with the #coordinates call moved. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 20:17, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

@Andy M. Wang: Why did you change it to make it go out to the parser to run Template:Coord, that will just in turn have to go back to Lua to run Module:Coordinates, when it previously just called the module directly? Your first change to just remove the parser function call while keeping the module call seemed correct. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:21, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
Hi Jackmcbarn, this revision still caused red errors (nil global frame) at Template:HS listed building row/testcases (though let me try it one more time). I'm not well-versed enough to discern whether there's a way to call the module directly without the issues. Restored the revision you suggested, but not getting the results — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 22:24, 20 September 2016 (UTC) 22:28, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: Ah. What's actually happening there is that Module:HS listed building has stricter bug-checking than Module:Coordinates does, so there's no problem at all in the former; rather, it's uncovered a bug in the latter, namely that there's no variable called "frame" in scope on line 657 when it tries to reference one. I'll see if I can figure that out. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:18, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: Okay, I confirmed my theory by adding the same bug-checking to Module:Coordinates/sandbox, which made it break everywhere with that error. I found and fixed that error, so now it seems to work everywhere. Jackmcbarn (talk) 23:26, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
Oh wow, that's great! Thanks for looking into this. I plan on re-syncing when I'm confident that other modules don't have this coordinates situation. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 23:31, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svg Hello, Jackmcbarn. This message is intended to notify administrators of important changes to the protection policy.

Extended confirmed protection (also known as "30/500 protection") is a new level of page protection that only allows edits from accounts at least 30 days old and with 500 edits. The automatically assigned "extended confirmed" user right was created for this purpose. The protection level was created following this community discussion with the primary intention of enforcing various arbitration remedies that prohibited editors under the "30 days/500 edits" threshold to edit certain topic areas.

In July and August 2016, a request for comment established consensus for community use of the new protection level. Administrators are authorized to apply extended confirmed protection to combat any form of disruption (e.g. vandalism, sock puppetry, edit warring, etc.) on any topic, subject to the following conditions:

  • Extended confirmed protection may only be used in cases where semi-protection has proven ineffective. It should not be used as a first resort.
  • A bot will post a notification at Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard of each use. MusikBot currently does this by updating a report, which is transcluded onto the noticeboard.
Please review the protection policy carefully before using this new level of protection on pages. Thank you.
This message was sent to the administrators' mass message list. To opt-out of future messages, please remove yourself from the list. 17:49, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Re: "minor" reverts of edits that aren't vandalism[edit]

[134] [135]

He explained in the summary of this other, identical edit that wasn't marked as minor that he thought these citations inappropriate as the websites are promotional in nature.

It's subjective, but "I don't think these are appropriate references" is not the same as reverting unambiguous vandalism. I don't generally like using references that weren't written by professional scholars (I think Wikipedia would be a better encyclopedia if topics not covered in scholarly literature did not get articles), but most Wikipedians, including, no doubt, Burninthruthesky, appear to disagree. And most "reliable sources" are trying to sell the audience something (that's what advertising revenue does), so the difference between what Burninthruthesky calls "references" and what he calls "promotional websites" is never going to be agreed on by everyone, which means marking those edits as minor is almost certainly inappropriate.

I only looked at the two most recent ones (where he reverted named accounts rather than IPs, mind you).

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Jackmcbarn.

A new user group, New Page Reviewer, has been created in a move to greatly improve the standard of new page patrolling. The user right can be granted by any admin at PERM. It is highly recommended that admins look beyond the simple numerical threshold and satisfy themselves that the candidates have the required skills of communication and an advanced knowledge of notability and deletion. Admins are automatically included in this user right.

It is anticipated that this user right will significantly reduce the work load of admins who patrol the performance of the patrollers. However,due to the complexity of the rollout, some rights may have been accorded that may later need to be withdrawn, so some help will still be needed to some extent when discovering wrongly applied deletion tags or inappropriate pages that escape the attention of less experienced reviewers, and above all, hasty and bitey tagging for maintenance. User warnings are available here but very often a friendly custom message works best.

If you have any questions about this user right, don't hesitate to join us at WT:NPR. (Sent to all admins).MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:47, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

New Page Review needs your help[edit]

Hi Jackmcbarn,

As an AfC reviewer you're probably aware that a new user right has been created for patrolling new pages (you might even have been granted the right already, and admins have it automatically).

Since July there has been a very serious backlog at Special:NewPagesFeed of over 14,000 pages, by far the worst since 2011, and we need an all out drive to get this back down to just a few hundred that can be easily maintained in the future. Unlike AfC, these pages are already in mainspace, and the thought of what might be there is quite scary. There are also many good faith article creators who need a simple, gentle push to the Tea House or their pages converted to Draft rather than being deleted.

Although New Page Reviewing can occasionally be somewhat more challenging than AfC, the criteria for obtaining the right are roughly the same. The Page Curation tool is even easier to use than the Helper Script, so it's likely that most AfC reviewers already have more than enough knowledge for the task of New Page Review.

It is hoped that AfC reviewers will apply for this right at WP:PERM and lend a hand. You'll need to have read the page at WP:NPR and the new tutorial.
