Welcome to my talk page!

Please place new messages at the bottom of this page, or click here to start a new discussion, which will automatically be at the bottom. I will respond to comments here, unless there's a better place for them. Please read the following helpful hints before posting:

Moderate __ __ __ __ __
  • Think. Use common sense. Read this before posting; failure to do so may result in your posts being ignored or mocked.
  • Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. That means it is not a social networking site, a place for self-promotion, a marketing tool or a free web host.
  • I prefer to be contacted here (as opposed to email) where possible. You're much more likely to get a prompt response.

upload in Wiki-java[edit]

Hello! Could you please help me with my problem. I use your Wiki-java framework and i can't upload any image. In my code I just log in to my own wiki (not Wikipedia) and after that do

File g1 = new File("Graph1.png");
if(g1!=null) w.upload(g1, "Graph1.png", "test", "test");

In the second line I get an exception: MediaWiki error, response was <?xml version="1.0"?><api><error code="notoken" info="The token parameter must be set" /></api> Źmicier Dzikański (talk) 20:29, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

Works for me. You should be using the latest revision. MER-C 11:42, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for answer! So, I also can upload pictures to Wikipedia, but can't upload to my wiki. Probably, it depends on version of MediaWiki. I use 1.23.9. Źmicier Dzikański (talk) 17:53, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
I would try updating your MediaWiki to 1.25.1, and if that doesn't work dump the output stream to a file (minus the image), compare it to what it should be as per your wiki's API documentation and inspect the cookies sent. Unfortunately, as I can't see your configuration that's the best advice I have. MER-C 06:50, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Me, hat in hand again[edit]

Hi. :) So, I've got another massive CCI (this case, an expansion of an existing CCI when new problems were uncovered :/) and I wanted to use your CCI analyzer, but I'm not quite sure how. Or remotely sure. Do I add it to my common.js? It's the last (and newest) three pages at Wikipedia:Contributor copyright investigations/Epeefleche. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:58, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

It's not exactly user friendly -- the program is in a state where a (Java) programmer can use it, but nobody else. It's not even complete -- I have to post-process the output before posting. That said, I am running it and will post the results shortly. MER-C 12:03, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
Done. Wow, it really tore through that last page. MER-C 13:10, 16 July 2015 (UTC)

CfD merge to multiple targets[edit]

Hi, I'm really glad you are doing so much work at CfD, as most of the old regulars have moved on to other things.

When the consensus is to merge to multiple targets, please list the task on the manual page WP:CFDWM rather than the automated Working page, as Cydebot can't merge to multiple categories. I spotted this set and think I fixed them. – Fayenatic London 12:43, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

I already know of that page, that particular listing was one that slipped through. MER-C 12:44, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I do that sort of thing too... – Fayenatic London 20:17, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Category:Roman roads in the Balkans[edit]


Thank you for taking the time to close out CFD discussions. It looks like Category:Roman roads in the Balkans was inadvertently left behind after a delete decision. Thanks. RevelationDirect (talk) 01:44, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Deleted. MER-C 05:13, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
