Hello NicoV,

I don't know how closely you've followed the research project about VisualEditor, but since they will be moving into the data analysis phase before long, I wanted to personally ask a few "regulars" at WP:VEF to let me know if they’d seen anything unusual during the last week or two. (I know you don't do much regular editing here, but you're still in the top 10 all-time contributors at WP:VEF.) There's a thread open at Wikipedia:VisualEditor/Feedback#Test feedback if you want, or you can always leave a note at my talk page or send me e-mail. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 06:26, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

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.

WPCleaner for sq wiki[edit]

Hello, I updated WikiCleanerConfiguration but im not sure if i completed it right. Can you please check and tell me what's missing, and what should i do next? Thank you :) --Margott 11:16, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Margott. I've checked quickly the configuration, here's what I see that could be changed:
  • general_wpcleaner_tag=WPCleaner: this means that modifications done with WPCleaner will be tagged with "WPCleaner", but this tag needs to be defined first (it doesn't seem to be in the list of tags on sq). Either you should comment out this parameter (put a "#" at the beginning of the line) or ask for the creation of this tag on sqwiki (the procedure is wiki dependent).
  • general_nobot_templates: not all templates seem to exist on sqwiki, you should comment out this parameter (put a "#" at the beginning of each line) or update the list: "GOCEinuse" doesn't exist so you should remove it from the list, "Inuse" exists but is a redirect to "Duke punuar" so you should add also "Duke punuar", "In use" doesn't exist, "Nobots" seems ok, ...
  • general_todo_templates: "todo" template doesn't exist, same for "to do", ...
  • general_todo_subpage: on enwiki, tasks to be done for an article are put on a sub-page named "to do" of the discussion page. Is it also the case for sqwiki ?
  • general_suggestions_typo: "Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos" doesn't exist on sqwiki, you should comment out this parameter, or put a correct page name
  • similar problems for other parameters...
I think the easiest way to configure WPCleaner for a new wiki is to comment out what you're not sure about (see the template where almost everything is commented out): if you want, I can create a minimal configuration for you, just tell me, I will do it. After that you can add configuration step by step for the extra features you want to activate in WPCleaner (the help page for configuration is quite big, but the prerequisite chapter gives indications on how to configure the most important features). I will happily help you add configuration once you have a basic configuration: I can explain what parameters should be configured and how depending on what features you want. I know it's not an easy task to fully configurate WPCleaner (I did most of enwiki and frwiki but only because I can speak both languages). Magioladitis, I don't know if you can help. --NicoV (Talk on frwiki) 13:25, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
Margott, I made a basic configuration for sqwiki. I haven't tested it, but it seems ok for starting. If you want, I can help expanding it. --NicoV (Talk on frwiki) 15:31, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
Yes, please, i would really appreciate that. I'm new in this, sorry if im making you having a hard time :). --Margott (talk) 09:15, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
Margott I checked how WPCleaner is working with the basic configuration I put on sqwiki. It seems to roughly work for fixing Check Wiki errors and disambiguation links, which are the main functions of WPCleaner. I think the next things that you could do to improve the configuration for sqwiki are:
  • For disambiguation links, in sq:Përdoruesi:NicoV/WikiCleanerConfiguration#Disambiguation configuration, translate into Albanian and uncomment the parameters dab_comment, ... so that WPCleaner automatically suggests a comment when you fix disambiguation links.
  • For Check Wiki, in sq:Wikipedia:WikiProject Check Wikipedia/Përkthimi:
    • First, decide which errors you want to be detected in sqwiki (for example, some errors don't apply in some languages) and modify the _prio_ values accordingly (0 means disabled, 1 to 3 means activated from top priority to lowest priority)
    • Second, for errors that you want activated, translate into Albanian the _head_ parameters to describe the type of error: it's also used by WPCleaner to suggest a comment when you fix such error. You can also translate _desc_ parameters but they're just used for display.
Hope this helps, don't hesitate to ask me more things. The best way to configure WPCleaner is probably to start using it and ask me when you see some behaviour that is not what you want, I can then help you to configure WPCleaner more precisely. --NicoV (Talk on frwiki) 20:54, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
