IP list[edit]

That's tremendously useful thanks! Can you move the 316kb list from my talk page though to Wikipedia:WikiProject Africa/The Africa Destubathon/IP invite list? Cheers.♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:53, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Done. --Unready (talk) 13:02, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

One thing, would it be possible to filter down that list by IPs who've made multiple constructive edits over several different days in that period? I'm not sure it would be a good thing to notify them all that's all, but the ones who seem more active and not having work reverted etc. Can you filter down to something like that? Perhaps exclude all of the ones who've made less than 5 edits?♦ Dr. Blofeld 12:56, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

I'm not sure how to filter by constructive edits, except by reviewing them all. The table is sortable, so you can sort by number of edits, then pick the more prolific contributors. --Unready (talk) 13:02, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I think the best thing though might be say over a month, create a list of African IPs by edit count of say the top 500 editors or something like that? if we can find the top 500 most active African IPs we can invite them to create an account and participate. Would that be possible?♦ Dr. Blofeld 13:04, 9 October 2016 (UTC)
The data in the table is a month of contributions, from 9 Sep to 9 Oct. If you click the "Contribution count" header, the table sorts by contribution count. --Unready (talk) 13:09, 9 October 2016 (UTC)

Thank you so much for generating that list! I had no idea how to do that, and it's a huge help!_

Draft:Security review RfC 2016[edit]

Hi Unready, thanks for contributing to the 2016 security review RfC draft - I've added some more clarity to the page, as it may have not been clear it was a RfC which is still being drafted. If you have any further suggestions for implementing password audits please feel free to leave a message on the draft RfC's talk page or at this Village Pump (Technical) thread. If you have any questions please feel free to drop me a message -- samtar talk or stalk 18:17, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

ArbCom Elections 2016: Voting now open![edit]

Scale of justice 2.svgHello, Unready. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.

The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority 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 in the 2016 election, please review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page. MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 22:08, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

The commonscat linking to commons gallery thing[edit]

Hello my friend. All is archived with no action. I'm astonished that it got wide support and nothing got done. I am so grateful you wrote that code. Could we please persue this together. I'd be happy to write to some of the supporters at commons as well. Is there a next step here? Post at meta? Best wishes. :)

@Anna Frodesiak: I would say the way to proceed is:
  1. We should be sure that the code does what you want and that what it produces looks the way you want. You kind of avoided it before, but you can put the code in your personal common.js on commons, then visit a few galleries to see the results. At the moment, it looks kind of bland, because I wanted to be sure of function.
  2. Once you're satisfied it fulfills your requirements, I would suggest asking for comments, probably as an RfC either on commons:Commons:Village pump/Proposals or on commons:MediaWiki talk:Common.js. I think VPP is probably the better place, because it's probably more widely read than a MediaWiki talk page and because the proposal should probably suggest putting any styling in Common.css. It would be weird to have a proposal that affects Common.css on the talk page of Common.js.
  3. It's possible someone may suggest an alternate solution, but the proposal itself should address why a bot, a template, or user duplication are not desirable or are actually infeasible. If the proposal is accepted, the commons admins would implement it.
Let me know what you think. --Unready (talk) 19:17, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Hi Unready. I've posted to centralize the discussion at Commons pump. I'd best let others check it out. Many, many thanks. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 23:49, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
