Invitation to join the Ten Year Society[edit]

Ten Year Society.svg

Dear Zocky,

I'd like to extend a cordial invitation to you to join the Ten Year Society, an informal group for editors who've been participating in the Wikipedia project for ten years or more. (You arrived here at almost exactly the same time as me.)

Best regards, — Hex (❝?!❞) 12:35, 21 January 2013 (UTC).

Distress call[edit]

Zocky, your javascript searchbox don't work for me no more. My life is so much worse! :-( Bishonen | talk 18:12, 5 February 2013 (UTC).

PicturePopups in other Wikipedias[edit]

Hi, Zocky. I love your Picture Popups script for Vector, but it doesn't work in other Wikipedias because they use different words for "File". I fixed the script by replacing File: with [^:]+: in line 24. If you decide to change it here we won't have to copy the whole script just to fix this small thing though. Thanks. --V111P (talk) 05:56, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Done. Zocky | picture popups 13:29, 20 March 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, one more little thing. You can remove the http: part of the css url on line 7, otherwise the script doesn't work in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer when using Wikipedia through https:. --V111P (talk) 09:00, 21 March 2013 (UTC)
Starting August 28 all registered users will be using https. That means without the simple modification I described above your script won't work any more. Please, see m:HTTPS#Help! My code is broken!. Thanks. --V111P (talk) 12:48, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

Order of the People's Hero?[edit]

Hi, as you have contributed to the discussion at Talk:Order of the People's Hero, you may be interested in Talk:Order of the People's Hero#Requested move. --Eleassar my talk 08:25, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

search box[edit]

Could you please use commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Button_find.png instead of en-file? The file was moved to commons and I do not see the pic at de-Wikipedia. Thank you. --Anka Friedrich (talk) 18:56, 23 March 2013 (UTC)

QuickEdit[edit]

Hi there, apologies if this does not really concern you, but I think this tool features some code you wrote?, and in this case you might want to know it conflicts with VisualEditor, or at least it appears so. Regards! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 15:59, 21 June 2013 (UTC)

Slovenian help needed[edit]

Hello Zocky, I'm contacting you because we need some Slovenian translators to help with the deployment of the new VisualEditor on sl.wikipedia. There are help pages, user guides, and description pages that need translating, as well as the interface itself. The translating work is going on over on MediaWiki: Translation Central. I also need help with a personal message for the Slovenian Wikipedians. If you are able to help in any way, either reply here, or head over to TranslationCentral. Thanks for your time, PEarley (WMF) (talk) 23:15, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

Popup no longer working for me. :-([edit]

When I click on the middle of a picture, nothing seems to happen. It used to work. I saw my name in the list of users, and clicked, and it went to a page with the document.write command. Cannot recall when it worked last, but it has been "some time". Using Firefox 24. I cleared cache. I re-pasted into standard.js. I don't think I can try anything else. ( Martin | talkcontribs 17:40, 18 September 2013 (UTC))

I had the same problem, Zocky just needs to include his stylesheet with "//" instead of "http://" as mentioned above (all logged-in users are now on https). I just forked Zocky's script in my own userspace, made the change on line 7 and changed my vector.js to point at my own fork. I hope Zocky fixes it soon so that I can point my vector.js back at his script. - Phorque (talk) 21:46, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
Fixed now. Zocky | picture popups 20:19, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
Hooray!! ( Martin | talkcontribs 17:47, 8 October 2013 (UTC))
Thanks! Phorque (talk) 20:14, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

Vilko Novak[edit]

Želim ti citirati iz časopisa Vestnik (1997. 22. maj), kaj je povedal prof. dr. Vilko Novak: Po drugi vojni leta 1956 sem prvi prišel uradno na Madžarsko in v Porabje in tam govoril slovensko v našem (beltinskem) narečju, sodeloval sem namreč pri odprtju kulturnega doma Avgusta Pavla, ko sem predstavil delo Avgusta Pavla. Zato sem bil napaden v domačem prekmurskem okolju. Temu je sledila dveletna disciplinska preiskava... Me je pa ovirala (preiskava) pri mojem strokovnem napredovanju.

Template:Location map/test/rectangle[edit]

What's the use of Template:Location map/test/rectangle? If it's no longer needed, can you delete it under G7? Thanks, Jackmcbarn (talk) 20:22, 13 April 2014 (UTC)

User:Zocky/SearchBox.js[edit]

Hallo Zocky,

thank you for your script. I’m very glad that I can use it. But I don’t get the button-images any more. I think, it is because they are loaded in http, not in https, mode. Could you please fix this? --Anka Friedrich (talk) 11:13, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

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.

Extended confirmed protection[edit]

Padlock-blue.svgHello, Zocky. 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)

Two-Factor Authentication now available for admins[edit]

Hello,

Please note that TOTP based two-factor authentication is now available for all administrators. In light of the recent compromised accounts, you are encouraged to add this additional layer of security to your account. It may be enabled on your preferences page in the "User profile" tab under the "Basic information" section. For basic instructions on how to enable two-factor authentication, please see the developing help page for additional information. Important: Be sure to record the two-factor authentication key and the single use keys. If you lose your two factor authentication and do not have the keys, it's possible that your account will not be recoverable. Furthermore, you are encouraged to utilize a unique password and two-factor authentication for the email account associated with your Wikimedia account. This measure will assist in safeguarding your account from malicious password resets. Comments, questions, and concerns may be directed to the thread on the administrators' noticeboard.

A new user right for New Page Patrollers[edit]

Hi Zocky.

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) 13:48, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

Notification of pending suspension of administrative permissions due to inactivity[edit]

Information icon Following a community discussion in June 2011, consensus was reached to provisionally suspend the administrative permissions of users who have been inactive for one year (i.e. administrators who have not made any edits or logged actions in more than one year). As a result of this discussion, your administrative permissions will be removed pending your return if you do not return to activity within the next month. If you wish to have these permissions reinstated should this occur, 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, that your inactivity did not have the effect of evading scrutiny of any actions which might have led to sanctions, and that you have not been inactive for a three-year period of time). If you remain inactive for a three-year period of time, including the present year you have been inactive, you will need to request reinstatement at WP:RFA. 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.

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]

Hello,

Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.
