Please can you elaborate on your claim that Wikispecies:About/cy is "not a translation", and so should be speedy deleted? Do you not see anything recoverable in the page history? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 13:04, 1 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Pigsonthewing: thats one of the issues with the translate extension and tagging for speedy deletion - I only tagged a single translation unit for deletion, since its that individual translation that needs deletion: Translations:Wikispecies:About/7/cy --DannyS712 (talk) 19:00, 1 May 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Now deleted. โ€“Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:38, 2 May 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]

Since you were marking the page for translation: Could you please make sure translation-aware transclusion is enabled? It appears that Wikispecies:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage is broken because it isn't. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 12:49, 12 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Not sure how to do that, sorry --DannyS712 (talk) 19:25, 12 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Me neither. May be @Dan Koehl: knows more, he used to be quite AWB-savvy. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 20:05, 12 June 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]
@Tommy Kronkvist This is completely unrelated to AWB. You have to re-mark the page for translation and tick the box "Enable translation-aware transclusion". I could also do that if you give me translationadmin rights; I already have experience with them from metawiki. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 20:48, 12 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
1234qwer1234qwer4: Done. You now have Translation Admin user rights. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 20:55, 12 June 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Thanks. I fixed that issue, though the page still does not seem to be parsed by AWB. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 21:07, 12 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your talk page history...[edit]

Not quite in line with w:WP:DENY/w:WP:BRI I'd say. A change like this would have done it, too, especially given you seem to have had the desire to not keep the messages on your talk page for a couple more minutes at any costs. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 12:43, 29 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@1234qwer1234qwer4: its in line with w:WP:BMB and I was working to get blocks the whole time. Also, I can't see the edit filter change you linked, so I'm assuming its a private filter --DannyS712 (talk) 13:12, 29 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, I meant the global filter; open the link on Meta (the filter change is very likely not . ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 13:17, 29 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hm, okay - I wasn't aware of that filter. Thanks for letting me know --DannyS712 (talk) 13:18, 29 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Duh, I accidentally published the message early, sorry; here's the full intended text: Sorry, I meant the global filter; open the link on Meta (the filter change does very likely not exist here). The policy does state that edits by banned users are to be reverted, and I didn't dispute this, I just said that keeping reverting on and on might be less productive from a DENY point of view than reverting just a bit later/less, especially in a non-content namespace. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 13:23, 29 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[edit]


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you donโ€™t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

re IPs[edit]

I cautioned Tommy against the IPs privately, did not intend it to be public. But my reason was that the one he has there now is a result of a CU though he does not have access to the log and only you, Dan and I can see the IPs involved. Just wanted to be careful. I agree though it did not need to be written on the page. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 22:10, 26 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just being careful was my reason too, really. "Better safe than sorry", so to speak. All is good now though and I have absolutely no problem with the current version without the note (it looks better, too). Btw I know that โ€‹Scott, Dan and Koavf can see the involved IPs, since they're members of the CU user group, but how come you can see the them too, DannyS712? โ€“Tommy Kronkvist (talk) 06:01, 27 February 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]
oops sorry my mistake as far as I know Danny cannot, I meant Koavf. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 06:32, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ok, np.ย :) I asked because DannyS712 is a member of several global user groups, and I thought may be some of them had changed (in regards to specific functions of the user groups, or him being a member of them). Case closed. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 10:02, 27 February 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]
@Faendalimas @Tommy Kronkvist I can't see IPs, but my antivandalism experience tells me that it can be beneficial to publically connect IPs and accounts based on behavior, to make it clear why a block might be blocked when the IP's actions alone might warrant lesser consequences (i.e. a single vandal edit from an IP vs. a single vandal edit that is clearly the behavior of a sock).

Module:Transcluder - import assistance[edit]

Hello again, after some further testing, please could I take you up on your offer of import assistance, of en:Module:Transcluder. Thank you very much, Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talk) 18:07, 11 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Maculosae tegmine lyncis so you just need the one module? It doesn't appear to depend on any others. And it should be at Module:Transcluderย ? DannyS712 (talk) 18:20, 11 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just that one for now, and yes please, to Module:Transcluder. Many thanks, Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talk) 18:25, 11 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you. Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 19:43, 11 March 2022 (UTC).Reply[reply]
Yes, thank you โ€” the function I was looking for is now working here on wikispecies as it does on enwiki, Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talk) 22:44, 11 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
