Use of SecurePoll on the Dutch Wikipedia

2
The Banner (talkcontribs)

How do we implement the SecurePoll on the Dutch Wikipedia? Are there any pre-conditions? Necessary rights?

KTC (talkcontribs)

SecurePoll are available on all Wikimedia projects, though votes may be done via Vote-Wiki nowadays. Try contacting meta:User:Jalexander-WMF who should be able to direct you to the correct WMF liaison.

Can this be used to create an editorial Board?

Oleolsenkjhølkølk (talkcontribs)

Can this extension be used to create a board of editors who would have to vote on a submitted article, before the articles goes live? I see someone asked a similar question, which has stood unanswered for 3 years now.

Any ideas on how to get around this?

Update for this: I re-ran the update script and everything went fine. No idea what happened to fix this problem though.

E.g. admins or someone. We want to turn it on in ruwiki in order to vote for Article of the Year, but there is a requirements for voters, which is checked by the jury.

Peachey88 (talkcontribs)

I'm looking to use this extension as a safety for voting on changes to a constitution for an organization. In short, several representatives will vote on changes to a section and, pending a 60% agreement and X number of votes, the motion will be passed to change the constitution. This is to create a digital parliament without direct oversight by any individual representative.

Is there any way to hack this extension to do what I require? If so, where's a good starting point?

"Fatal exception of type MWException" when using the SecurePoll Extension

3
Liberaler Humanist (talkcontribs)

I am currently testing the SecurePoll Extension in order to promote its use in the Wikipedia. I have installed a Wiki on a Webspace that seems to be working. When testing the SecurePoll-Extension itself, it works until a vote is tallied. At this point, an error message for "Fatal exception of type MWException" appears. This error seems to be common, but there doesn't seem to be a specific soultion for this. Does anyone know how to get rid of this error?

Florianschmidtwelzow (talkcontribs)

First you should set $wgShowExceptionDetails to true in your LocalSettings.php to show the backtrace and probably a better error message :)

Liberaler Humanist (talkcontribs)

This gives me "[bb281054] /mediawiki-1.23.6/index.php?title=Spezial:Sichere_Abstimmung/tally/7 Exception from line 36 of /mediawiki-1.23.6/extensions/SecurePoll/includes/talliers/Tallier.php: Invalid tallier type: range"

After a little investigation, I found out that the range-tallier is bugged. The other talliers work. Things are complicated by the lack of a manual.

Info-Screen (talkcontribs)

I want to install SecurePoll but there is no information how to do this. And you must do more as only install. Please put this information on the Page.

62.132.204.221 (talkcontribs)

Why does nobody anwer questions about the instalation and configuration of this extension? Is it some kind of secret?

Jasper Deng (talkcontribs)

The problem is that not many people know, including me, and those who do tend to be rather busy.
