Hello! - about your Popups[edit]

Hi there! I just started using this really nice "software" and found a minor problem: when I hover onto article names, it dosen't display as this image: Revert popups.jpg , that is, it does not show "actions" on the side of the article name, but as the following: [article name]lastEdit|lastContrib|sinceMe|edit-history-un|watch-talk|edit|new|whatLinksHere-related Changes-move
I would like to know that if this is normal or not. If it is not normal, do you have a solution? Thank you!-- Vintei  talk  21:20, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

It is normal in browsers which I believe are not able to display the menus as in that screenshot. The canonical solution is to use Firefox. Lupin|talk|popups 00:16, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Hi and there is another problem. When I hover over an image, it reads "image preview failed. install query.php" or something similar, but with the query.php stuff (I can still see the image though). I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.9. How to solve the problem? Thank you!-- Vintei  talk  01:39, 26 November 2007 (UTC)
The query.php thing appears for everyone here. I, too, can see the image thumbnails, just without any page preview. It appears that something changed with query.php and Popups hasn't been updated yet. Tuvok[T@lk/Improve me] 06:19, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

possible bug with pop-ups (disambiguation)[edit]

There appears to be a bug with the pop-ups' disambiguation feature. At times, it will disambiguate incorrect links as well as the ones I'm trying to fix. For example, in this edit, it changed the graph coloring link, which was not supposed to happen. Please look into this.

Thanks. --Ixfd64 22:11, 1 December 2007 (UTC)

Feature bloat[edit]

Popups have just gotten to big and slow for me, so I had to remove them. Do you have a simple compact version. All I'd want is the page preview box when I hover over a page link, the top 20 contribs when I hover over user links, add diffs shown on diff link hover. Voice-of-All 21:36, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

Small Popups feature request[edit]

Hi, Lupin! I just have one small request for Popups. It would help greatly if Popups would determine if the "Newer revision" in a diff link is the current one, and say so if it is. That would be extremely useful in conjunction with tools such as Twinkle. I'm not sure where you prefer to have Popups-related discussion, but I figured I'd ask here so you get that nice yellow bar. ;) I'll be watching this page for a response; feel free to decline if it's too hard or you don't have the time.

AntiVandal Tool bug[edit]

Image:Lupin problem.jpg was taken by User:Snowolf, but I'm getting the same problem; the tool still works, 'cept it highlights the suspected words as [ and < symbols. There haven't been any malicious edits to the Badwords list, at least none that I can see... anyway, your help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Master of Puppets Care to share? 20:26, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion for filtering[edit]

Can I suggest that there should be a new switch for the filter to ignore a set of sexual words (bondage/lesbian etc) for biogs categorised in various sexual categories, such as those referring to porn? That'd take care of a lot of false results. And if it doesn't already, conversely, it should filter for the addition of such cats to biogs, which would help with WP:BLP monitoring. --Dweller (talk) 10:31, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Launch pop-ups on key command?[edit]

I really enjoy your popups tool -- thanks so much for making it available -- but I do encounter two problems with it: 1) it often pops up when I don't want it to, which is annoying, and 2) when I do want it to pop up it takes too long. I thought both of these could be solved with one new feature: a setting where you press a key to cause the pop up. If it was set, no pop ups would appear unless you moused over something and pressed a key (maybe ctrl?). That way, pop ups would never appear by accident and you could cause them to come up as fast as you could hit the control key.

I don't think this should be too hard to implement, just replace the current mouseover/timer set up with an onKeyDown thing. In any event, I hope you'll consider it and thanks again for the great tool! AaronSw (talk) 18:42, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Problem with toolbox[edit]

Lupin i've recently been using your Live Spellchecker, and for some reason it's vanished from my toolbox under the search bar, is there anyway of fixing this problem. →Yun-Yuuzhan 16:57, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Inclusion of userscript as Gadget.[edit]

Hi Lupin,

What is the procedure for requesting that a userscript become a gadget. My script for bypassing Special:Book_sources is fairly popular (700+ users) and, in my opinion, very useful.

Lunchboxhero (talk) 18:28, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

There isn't one, and yours can't be used because you need to manually add a URL. Prodego talk 00:08, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Perhaps there is not a formal procedure, but somebody or some group of people certainly decides what scripts become gadgets. You are quite right that the externISBN script in its present form is not ready for inclusion, but if there was interest, it could be made acceptable.

Recommended update to your RC filter[edit]

Hi. I've started reverting vandalism using you RC filter and it's a great tool. One thing I noticed though is that the links to warn vandals don't automatically add the shared IP notice to the talk pages of IPs like when you warn users using Twinkle. Is their any way to update the filter so that it will do this? Thanks.--Urban Rose (talk) 05:09, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

default value of popupStructure[edit]

Hi Lupin,

thanks for the popups -- they're great!

In the table of options at Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups, the value "shortmenus" is in bold to indicate the default value of popupStructure, but text to the right says that "menus" is the default value.

Just a little 'U' typo...[edit]

Hello Lupin! I seem to have found a repeated mistake on some pages, while I was logged in to my account on Wikipedia. It looks to me like it's a typo in one of the Popups software's strings, and that's why I address this message to you (correct me, please, if I was wrong).

For example, when on  "my talk"  page:, if I hover onto the link: "Post a message to Slaughtre", the popup titled: "User talk:Slaughtre" appears. In that popup's horizontal menu (to the right of the popup's title), I hover onto an item called: "user", and when a "user submenu" appears, I then hover onto an: "edit counter" item in this submenu. If the mouse cursor is left unmoved over this "edit counter" submenu link, the yellow rectangular tooltip appears after a while...

The tooltip says:  "Count the countributions made by Slaughtre", which probably should be:  "Count the contributions made by Slaughtre".

Here are the step-by-step screen dumps of my browser displaying the above mentioned typo:

The above example describes the "edit counter" link's tooltip typo, on a "User talk" page only, but later I realized, that this behavior is true for all other user-related links in popups, site-wide, so the affected URIs are not limited to the list below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Slaughtre
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Slaughtre
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Slaughtre

In addition to that minor typo report, I would also like to thank you for your Popups soft! Despite the fact, I am quite new to editing Wikipedia, I already found this tool not only very pretty, but extremely useful too. I also hope that fixing all the instances of this typo (if it is a typo - counting countributions sounds nice:), will just be a matter of changing one string somewhere.   Cheers!    --slaughtre (talk) 19:06, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Popups suggestions[edit]

As the script now stands (a fascinating tool BTW, great thanks!), when a popup is generated for a link to a section, a preview of the first paragraph of that section is shown; however, if a link leads to an anchor in a page that is not a section, the first paragraph of the article is previewed, not of the linked part. (Sections are preceded by <a name="smth" id="smth"></a> HTML construction, while in most lists entries are surround either with <span id="smth">...</span> or <div id="smth">...</div> tags.) This is also the case with redirects to sections and list entries. For example, compare popups for Art inspired by J. R. R. Tolkien and Alliterative verse by J. R. R. Tolkien (both are "redirects with possibilities", to a section and a span'ed paragraph respectively); Minor places in Middle-earth#A (section) and Minor places in Middle-earth#Aldburg (div'ed entry). Can this be tweaked? (Added 15:40, 11 January 2008 (UTC): looking closer, I see that the popup for the third link shows not the first paragraph, but the first that consists of a text without div tags, but I suppose this is intentional.)

And another proposal. I suppose it would be handy to preview the table of contents in popups for articles; this would cast the light not only on the topic itself, but also on what is encompassed by the page. This could come as a custom option, if say popupToCs = true. What do you think? Súrendil (talk) 15:30, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

And #3. When previewing the contents of a category, would it be possible that the popup reacts on the from=<name> option in the link so that the contents are shown beginning from <name> member? Súrendil (talk) 14:44, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

AVT filters not working[edit]

The two filter pages (Filter recent changes & Live spellcheck) are not returning any changes. The framework works fine, but each update returns zilch.

I've tested it over and over again on different browsers and even on a test account with no other scripts. Still no changes coming up. Could you possibly take a look? haz (talk) 20:08, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

The "show details" links are also not working, on all four AVT pages. The edit summary is shown underneath the entry, but the actual diff is not. Possible page-parser fault? haz (talk) 20:42, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

What kind of browser are you using? I know for a fact that at least Safari is not supported by AVT. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 20:46, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Tested in IE7 and FF2. No JS errors reported by either. haz (talk) 20:47, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

"undo this edit" in Popups[edit]

Hi!

The string "undo this edit" seems intranslatable. I added it to my translated version, as well as to your draft list of strings, however it remains in English. Where next Columbus? (talk) 19:03, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Nevermind, fixed it myself. Hope my editing of the strings-draft isn't annoying - please tell me if that is the case. Still, the regexps for options popup{Dab,ImageVars,Stub}Regexp seem confusing to me - what exactly do they look for? Dab and stub detection don't work as advertised in the sv translation, so I'd like to translate them just to be complete. Where next Columbus? (talk) 20:29, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Translation for "mark patroled"[edit]

Please put "mark patroled" to translation text page, so that we can localize this term within another language's Wikipedia. Thanks. Vinhtantran (talk) 14:44, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

Problem solved, I think, with the Anti-Vandal tool[edit]

Hello Lupin! I figured out why my rollback wasn't working even with the Pop-ups installed: the Pop-Up sript was disabled. Please put the following into your "installation guide":

Once that is done, go to your preferences. Go to the new "gadget" tab. Tick the box that says "Pop-ups" Click "Save Changes". After that, non-admin rollback works! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Mister1nothing (talkcontribs) 17:29, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

One rainbow for you![edit]

Without the help of the Lupin tool i would never, EVER have been able to revert vandalism in such an effective way as i am doing now. The little marvel helps wikipedia in an astonishing way, by making sure that every vandal fighter can revert vandalism quickly and easily. For this incredible tool, no star less then the Special Barnstar would be appropriate! --Excirial (Talk,Contribs) 15:39, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Problem with admin rollback while using filter[edit]

Hi. I have been granted access to the admin rollback and while using the Lupin RC filter, sometimes the "no rollback link found" message still appears when I try to rollback using the admin only rollback. I would just use the non-admin rollback, but something is wrong with it and I'm now required to save my changes to pages manually.--Urban Rose 20:26, 21 January 2008 (UTC)

It happened to me too.--Antonio Lopez (talk) 03:33, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

yeah, I know you get a lot of these...[edit]

but I have a suggestion/request for your popups. Can you please make it/fix my pop ups to make it so I would have to hover my mouse over an article or picture link for 5 seconds before a pop up appears. In reality, pop-ups are the most annoying thing ever, but I still use it because of the wonderful diff previews and fast vandal reverts, but when reading an article, it is very annoying to have windows popping up just when casually sliding the mouse across the screen. Just for articles and image previews, could it be possible to delay the appearance rate for those, as I would not be reading all those articles, which sometimes get in the way when they don't disappear. I know some people may not agree with this, but would it be possible to just fix mine (copying the source code to jss), or tell me how to. I would be so immensely grateful. Thanks, whether you do it or not, -- penubag  11:33, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

Why don't you try the available options first? Specifically, the very 1st option. (You're supposed to add that into User:Penubag/monobook.js) ∴ AlexSm 14:40, 22 January 2008 (UTC)
Ah, I did not know that page existed. Thank you very much, however further customization would be great. -- penubag  04:46, 24 January 2008 (UTC)


Disputed fair use rationale for Image:Skegness-postcard.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:Skegness-postcard.jpg. However, there is a concern that the rationale you have provided for using this image under "fair use" may be invalid. Please read the instructions at Wikipedia:Non-free content carefully, then go to the image description page and clarify why you think the image qualifies for fair use. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If it is determined that the image does not qualify under fair use, it will be deleted within a couple of days according to our criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot (talk) 05:31, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

popups displaying images mentioned in edit summaries[edit]

When I hover over a link to a page history where one of the edit summaries contains a link to an image, the image is displayed (at its full resolution), rather than displaying a link to the image.

For example see Kirpan (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) and User:Thryduulf/Imagetest (edit | [[Talk:User:Thryduulf/Imagetest|talk]] | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views). Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn't - but it always happens when viewed from your special contributions. Feel free to use the latter page for testing of this if you wish. Thryduulf (talk) 01:13, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

edit: forgot to add I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.11 on Windows XP. I get the same behaviour in Konqueror and Firefox 2.0.0.11 on Linux. Thryduulf (talk) 01:31, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
OK, this can be solved i think:
Previewmaker.prototype.editSummaryPreview=function() {
	var c=this.data;
	var re=/^\/[*] +(.*?) +[*]\/(.*)/;
	alert( "editSummaryPreview: " + c );
	if (re.test(c)) {
		var section=c.replace(re, '$1');
		var t=new Title().fromURL(this.baseUrl);
		t.anchorFromUtf(section);
		// work around livepreview brokenness with anchors:
		// pass .-escaped anchor instead of literal value
		c=c.replace(re, '[[' + t.toString(true).split("'").join('%27') +
			    '#' + t.anchor.split("'").join('%27') + '|→]]' +
			    '<span class=autocomment>$1</span>$2');
	}
	this.html=wiki2html(c, this.baseUrl);
	return this.html;
};

This function would need an additional check that replaces [[Image: with [[:Image:. Unfortunately, this is a tad beyond my understanding of popups and regexps atm.. I'll try a couple of things. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 00:48, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Nav Popups Bug: Character encoding troubles[edit]

I discovered a bit of a bug when following links with funky characters in them. For example: Račak incident when moused-over gives an empty preview with the title RaÄak incident. Yet, if the link is to Racak incident which redirects to Račak incident, then it shows the re-directed preview just fine. Also, when on the page for Račak incident, links to footnotes render with the Ä character (and thus empty). I assume there's some encoding issue in there somewhere? Yuletide (talk) 00:11, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Makotoy recently found a fix for this. I'm testing it on my own personal version of popups here. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 22:48, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

User:Lupin/alltalk[edit]

The above (very long! Crikey!) page is in CAT:SPEEDY at the moment, I can't see a tag and am not sure why. Is it a bug? Or is there a speedy tag there I can't find? SGGH speak! 01:16, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Bug in popups.js/autoedit.js[edit]

User:Lupin/popups.js (and User:Lupin/autoedit.js) contains a bug that breaks other scripts. It defines (or redefines, if it exists already) a global function getParamValue, but does so wrongly. The function should use decodeURIComponent instead of decodeURI. As it stands, it breaks on parameter values containing properly encoded characters. Caused me quite some headache over at commons:MediaWiki:Gadget-DelReqHandler.js, which didn't work as expected for one user, who also happened to include your popups script in his monobook.js. commons:MediaWiki:Common.js normally defines that function correctly, and it took me a while to find out why it didn't work anymore. I've worked around this bug, but it's probably still a good idea to get it fixed in your code. Lupo 08:33, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

I wonder if this is related to the slightly higher mentioned "encoding char bug" that users on Safari are experiencing. Might be coincidence, might not be :D --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 22:59, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
Tested and the issues are not related. I have both active in my personal version atm. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 18:58, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

WikEd compatibility[edit]

Hi, thank you very much for the Navigation popups; they help a lot. I have one small request: I have wikEd installed also, and when I use its in-page preview mode, the navigation popups won't work on the links in the preview region. Is there a possibility to rectify that? Maybe it's easier to modify wikEd instead; if so, let me know and I'll ask there. Cheers, AxelBoldt (talk) 00:29, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

query.php to be removed[edit]

He Lupin, not sure if there are still any parts in Popups that do use query.php, but even if it doesn't I'm sure you will be interested. http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/mediawiki-api/2008-February/000345.html --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 12:09, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

spellcheck bug - quotes in article title[edit]

Thanks so much for your wonderful tool! I use it all the time, and noticed a bug today. If an article title has quotes in it, like (the now deleted, sorry) "illusive media" and Bobby "Davidson" Mohammed, the links to fix spelling do not work because the javascript call becomes something like recent2.correctSpelling(""illusive media"", "ablity"). KathrynLybarger (talk) 18:53, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:FIdot[edit]

A tag has been placed on Template:FIdot requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section T3 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a deprecated or orphaned 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 intended to be substituted, please feel free to remove the speedy deletion tag and please consider putting a note on the template's page indicating that it is substituted so as to avoid any future mistakes.

Thanks. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:49, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Popups may pop the wrong article up[edit]

Hover over this link: Shall We Dance? (2004 film) Notice how it behaves like you hovered over this link: Shall We Dance I believe the problem to be related to the question mark, which should probably be encoded like %3F. Shinobu (talk) 14:54, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

This issue should be fixed once Lupin applies #Nav Popups Bug: Character encoding troubles. In my private version of popups, this is already fixed, and I see the correct articles. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 16:29, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Suggested improved to the RC filter[edit]

Would it be possible for a user to choose to disable the notifications that you have previously rolled back an editor from appearing for select users? I at times find that I have accidentally rolled back an admin or other vandal fighter and the RC filter becomes flooded with notifications that I have rolled back the editor.--Urban Rose 17:42, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Another RC patrol suggestion[edit]

There is a popups/recentchanges patrol conflict (at least in FF2.0.0.12/WinXP) because the link for "history" is sort of wrong; it includes the diff= and oldid= parameters.

In User:Lupin/recent2.js, in the function recent2.doLine, would you consider changing:

 linkmaker(bundle.article+'&action=history', 'hist')

to:

 linkmaker(recent2.articlePath + bundle.articleTitle + '?action=history', 'hist')

I don't experience any problems with spaces, but one could also do:

 linkmaker(recent2.articlePath + bundle.articleTitle.replace(/ /g,'_') + '?action=history', 'hist')

Thanks, JackSchmidt (talk) 18:10, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia article traffic statistics[edit]

Adding these (http://stats.grok.se) to the popups would be a great addition. Thanks, Sandstein (talk) 16:31, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

spaces in section links[edit]

Hi Lupin,

when I click on a link to a section title in a popup (e.g. the link to "Transplantation#Art der Transplantation" in the popup for "autolog" in the German article de:Nabelschnurblut), spaces in the title aren't transformed to underscores as they are outside of popups, and the page gets opened at the top and not at the section.

I have tagged Image:Rovers1970s.jpg as {{no rationale}}, because it does not provide a fair use rationale.

popup suggestion: history view[edit]

Hi, here's a suggestion for an addition to your popup script: when I hover over an article link, under "actions" it gives me the option "history" to view the article's history.

Popup footnote problem[edit]

Could you please respond to this problem when you have time? Thanks. --NigelG (or Ndsg) | Talk 16:43, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

As noted on the discussion page for User:Lupin/popups.js, TimR has created a fix for this new problem. Until it is incorporated in User:Lupin/popups.js, you can use TimR's code by inserting this after the User:Lupin/popups.js line in your monobook.js page:
importScript('User:TimR/misc.js');
Lupin, the next time you check these, it would be nice of you to include this small change in your popups.js. :) Earthsound (talk) 01:26, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

popup navigation to a specific chapter[edit]

Hi Lupin, the navigation to a chapter (represented by a link like [[<article>#<headline>]]) does not work from out of the popup window. Example in German Wikipedia: article de:Dresdner Brückenstreit - wikilink to de:Dresdner Elbtal#Kommunikationsproblem im Nominierungsverfahren. It fails in both browsers I tested (IE and firefox). --de:user:LogoX (de:User talk:LogoX) 14:02, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

query.php and api.php[edit]

If need arises, I have a version of Navigation popups that supports api.php User:TheDJ/apipopups.js It only uses the api.php where it previously used query.php and is backwards compatible. There is only a few small issues with imagepage content and detection of conflicts between images on commons and on en.wikipedia. But it works and if query.php is every disabled, it can be easily deployed here and in the Gadget version. I will be working on a slimpopups version that has as goal to replace the current gadget. It will be lighter to download, faster, use API wherever it can benefit and only support Wikipedia and current version mediawiki software. A lot of people are disabling popups Gadget because it has grown too big. The original idea was a good one, but for a gadget it is just too large --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 19:10, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Invaluable tool[edit]

Hi Lupin, I can't tell you how much your anti vandal tool is appreciated around here. You probably know that already, but I thought I'd add my personal thanks and perhaps a request:

Is it possible to make a modification to the tool so that it shows additions to ANI? I guess that would be a different tool, but it would be super-helpful to have something like that available to admins. I've taken a look at the code and quickly discovered modifying what you have is far above my head so I'm not going to try to do it myself. It sure would be useful. Thanks!

This is for all of your tireless work making Wikipedia easier to use.

I have a suggestion though - could we have a way of whitelisting certain words on certain articles?

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Wimbledon logo.png)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Wimbledon logo.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media 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 media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BJBot (talk) 05:02, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Template:ITdot[edit]

Open source? Doh!!![edit]

Hey! Could I use code of your popups under terms of GPL?

Iraqi Air Force[edit]

What did you do in Iraqi Air Force#Persian Gulf War and no-fly zones here??

The MiG-25 force (NATO codename 'Foxbat') recorded the only Iraqi air-to-air kill during the war. A Mig-25PD shot down an American F/A-18 on the first night of the war. In another incident, an Iraqi Foxbat-E eluded <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Lupin/navpop.css&action=raw&ctype=text/css&dontcountme=s">eight American F-15s, firing three missiles at an EF-111 electronic warfare aircraft, forcing them to abort their mission.
This is a problem with this version of popups when used by certain browsers (Safari). It was introduced here. I'll see into getting that fixed soon. --TheDJ (talkcontribs) 12:58, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
I've had a few problems in the last couple months with popups in Firefox:
  • showing popups that never disappear and have transparent background
  • having extraneous html (presumably from document.write) show up in diffs
Most recently, using Safari, I had the same problem as above with the Iraqi Air Force article. I nearly committed this diff. --Jeremyb (talk) 04:18, 17 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Dan Foord[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Dan Foord, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached.

UTF-8 problem with Konqueror[edit]

Hello,

today I tried out your Navigation-Pop-up-Gadget. I really like it, but it has a stupid bug. In German we öften use the umlauts and KDE/Konqueror displays everything in UTF-8 charset by default for internationalization. The problem is that the codes seem to be interpreted in the pop-up as ASCII-characters. I guess it is working over AJAX to grab the correct article from the server, but then it is searching for the wrong word in the wiki database. If I use your pop-up over articles with an umlaut or szlig it shows the string "/* Empty */" as article text. Do you think you can fix that UTF-8-character problem?

Thanks --93.134.139.200 (talk) 00:05, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

Hello 93.134.139.200,
I had the same problem with popups. To fix it, you can copy the script on my de:monobook.js in your monobook.js and then it should be OK. Auxerroisdu68 (talk) 06:42, 20 July 2008 (UTC)

This bug is still there (non-ascii letters show up as Latin 1 - values of their UTF-8 parts for popup.js), on Nynorsk Wikipedia this nice popup is part of the general settings repertoire. Better than having individual users downloading individual fixes it seems that adding User:Auxerroisdu68 to the popup script wherever it appears. Trondtr (talk) 16:40, 12 November 2011 (UTC).

Image source problem with Image:Henry V Branagh.jpg[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading Image:Henry V Branagh.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, please add a proper copyright licensing tag if the file doesn't have one already. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have uploaded by following this link. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 16:15, 23 July 2008 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. --Geniac (talk) 16:15, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Resonate[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

A tag has been placed on Resonate, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article seems to be blatant advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam as well as the Wikipedia:Business' FAQ for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. Bvlax2005 (talk) 09:42, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Google translation[edit]

I noticed Lupin's very comprehensive popup javascript in the Wikipedia documentation. I suspect it can be amended so that google toolbar-like translations of words and selected text can be achieved, by referencing the Google translation API itself, which provides an URL which will, upon request, translate up to 500 characters of information between any 23 supported languages.

If Lupin's script made an AJAX call to a wikipedia URL that reflected the request up to the Google translation URL then the entire Google translation feature would be available to Lupin's javascript.

The Wikipedia URL for this wouldn't be there now, but it would be a simple cgi script and quite easy to put together. With Lupin's popup javascript it could make word and selected text popup translations available to anyone who includes the script in their monobook.js

I have a web implementation of the idea at:

http://www.securecottage.com/cgi-bin/reference.cgi

Endo999 (talk) 07:39, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Endo999, for various reasons, Wikipedia will never dynamically mirror content from an external internet source, and as you're probably aware, most browsers will reject AJAX calls to other domains for browser security. As a result, it is unlikely that what you're suggesting could ever be implemented, especially as Lupin no longer performs any serious maintenance or development of his tools. haz (talk) 16:35, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Your popups tool[edit]

I was just using your pop-ups tool and I notice there is an "Hide admin edits" function. I was thinking, as a suggestion to improve upon on the tool, what about a "Hide rollbackers edits" function?

"Monitor my watchlist" improvement suggestion[edit]

IME I get a lot of lines where it just says "updated..." over and over before it gets something of content.

As such, I suggest that if you ever *create* an updating/updated div, and the immediately preceding div is an empty updated div, delete that previous one.

I'm not sure how your script works, but you could e.g. tag empty divs w/ a 'empty' CSS class, and remove all divs by class when inserting the 'updating...' div.

File source problem with File:Exploding-animals-problem.png[edit]

Copyright-problem.svg

Thank you for uploading File:Exploding-animals-problem.png. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of that website's terms of use of its content. However, if the copyright holder is a party unaffiliated from the website's publisher, that copyright should also be acknowledged.

If you have uploaded other files, consider verifying that you have specified sources for those files as well. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged per Wikipedia's criteria for speedy deletion, F4. If the image is copyrighted and non-free, the image will be deleted 48 hours after 11:26, 5 May 2010 (UTC) per speedy deletion criterion F7.

Revision to Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire and Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri articles[edit]

I noticed that you have revised either Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri or Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire.

I intend to revise those articles following the Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games/Article guidelines. There are more details on the discussion pages of those articles. I'd be interested in any comments you have. It would be best if your comments were on the discussion pages of the two articles.

Thank you.

Hi. I've copied User:Lupin/recent2.js to User:Ali Esfandiari/recent2.js in Persian Wikipedia and also these pages have ben created:

User:Ali Esfandiari/badwords

User:Ali Esfandiari/Filter_recent_changes

User:Ali Esfandiari/All_recent_changes

User:Ali Esfandiari/Recent_IP_edits

User:Ali Esfandiari/Monitor_my_watchlist

and five options are added to my toolbox. but when I click them, I cannot see any dynamic page shows the recent changes consequently. Just this message appears on the pages: "If you have installed the anti-vandal tool and you are logged in, then you should see activity below this line soon" and no activity is seen.

Image source problem with File:Turin dot.png[edit]

Image Copyright problem

Thank you for uploading File:Turin dot.png.

This image is a derivative work, containing an "image within an image". Examples of such images would include a photograph of a sculpture, a scan of a magazine cover, or a screenshot of a computer game or movie. In each of these cases, the rights of the creator of the original image must be considered, as well as those of the creator of the derivative work.

While the description page states who made this derivative work, it currently doesn't specify who created the original work, so the overall copyright status is unclear. If you did not create the original work depicted in this image, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright.

If you have uploaded other derivative works, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged images may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the image is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the image will be deleted 48 hours after 06:09, 1 January 2011 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Magog the Ogre (talk) 06:09, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Suspension of admin privileges due to inactivity[edit]

Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative privileges of users who have been inactive for one year, meaning administrators who have made neither any edits nor any logged actions in over one year. As a result of this discussion, your administrative privileges have been removed pending your return. If you wish to have these privileges reinstated, please post to the Wikipedia:Bureaucrats' noticeboard and the userright will be restored per the re-sysopping process (i.e., as long as the attending bureaucrats are reasonably satisfied that your account has not been compromised and that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions). This removal of access is procedural only, and not intended to reflect negatively upon you in any way. We wish you the best in future endeavors, and thank you for your past administrative efforts.

Spellcheck script suggestion[edit]

I wish to suggest something for the spellcheck part of the script at User:Lupin/recent2.js. I think that the reason that is automatically entered should also say that it uses the script that it does, that way, the admins can let you know that it is your script that they used if someone uses it to mess with the wiki.

File:Altroutenorth2.png needs authorship information[edit]

Dear uploader:

The media file you uploaded as File:Altroutenorth2.png appears to be missing information as to its authorship (and or source), or if you did provide such information, it is confusing for others trying to make use of the image.

It would be appreciated if you would consider updating the file description page, to make the authorship of the media clearer.

Although some images may not need author information in obvious cases, (such where an applicable source is provided), authorship information aids users of the image, and helps ensure that appropriate credit is given (a requirement of some licenses).

  • If you created this media yourself, please consider explicitly including your user name, for which: {{subst:usernameexpand|Lupin}} will produce an appropriate expansion,
    or use the {{own}} template.
  • If this is an old image, for which the authorship is unknown or impossible to determine, please indicate this on the file description page.
If you have any questions please see Help:File page. Thank you. Sfan00 IMG (talk) 11:36, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. For the Election committee, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:14, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

Hello Hello, I seek direction[edit]

Hello, Your anti-vandalism tool, i seek to make proper use of, but i am unable to successfully install it. My web browser is chrome and i edit wikipedia through a mobile phone, also,in this part importScript('User:Lupin/recent2.js');

Do i substitute your username and put mine instead? please, do enlighten me, i'm sorry if this questions may sound very silly to you, but software programming wasn't my best course in college.Celestina007 (talk) 20:21, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Celestina007, this user's last edit was made in 2009, and is probably inactive. This tool is unusable through a mobile platform. Dschslava Δx parlez moi 05:53, 14 July 2017 (UTC)

Interested in "fixnew"[edit]

I understand you may not respond, but as long as SOMEONE can politely explain, then I'll be glad. Too bad I Couldn't "Ping" all the script people at once. So for now,

@Lupin: I would like to know more about importScript('User:Lupin/fixnew.js');, before I implement it. For one thing, what does the script do for me (or help me with editing?). And the second thing is, how do I use it afterwards? I really thank whoever responds to this for using their time to provide a light. Have a nice day!
