Full-protecting Project:Current issues?

6
Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

Does anyone know if full-protecting Project:Current issues will prevent non-admins from creating new topics on it? If so, is there any way to full-protect just the board description? This seems to be a spam/vandalism magnet.

Aah, of course there's a Phab task for this. Thanks for the pointer!

Right, I didn't even think of abuse filters for this. I don't have much experience writing filters, so it'd probably be best for someone else to write one for this.

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

I've repurposed this filter that was affecting only Project:SupportDesk to also affect all namespaces other than user talk pages, since other boards are also target of this nonsense (help, project, and even categories)

The entire page is full of dead links to semeb.com instead of followthescore.org

This page was a subject to rewriting and is still marked as a draft. This discourages translators. Last edits on the page were in March; does anyone plan to continue writing this page?

Pinging @SUM1

As said in Topic:Vhhf32auldojenjp, if the page is to be rewritten, it shouldn't be marked for translation. However, if nobody is going to improve it in some days, I'd suggest to remove that draft template.

It looks very complete.

It seems to be a cache problem. See also this in private window.

আফতাবুজ্জামান (talkcontribs)

@Shirayuki I am still seeing this template in english.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

I have nothing else to do.

আফতাবুজ্জামান (talkcontribs)

I just noticed {{int:lang}} gives me "en" and not "bn"! (test) I tried this on commons, meta & wikidata, on these site {{int:lang}} gives me correct result. How can i fix this?

Unable to add external links to mediawiki user page

Privacybatm (talkcontribs)

As a part of GSoC, I created a user page in mediawiki and was trying to add links to my weekly blogs and it resulted in error. Can you please help me to rectify this?

ZI Jony (talkcontribs)

@Privacybatm: could you please provide that link? so that we can check the issues. Thanks!

Hi @ZI Jony Just now I tried using the insert link option in the 'edit source' page and it worked!

Thank you so much for your quick response :-)

It reads “Seguidor de errores” which literally means “error follower”. Please change it to read “Rastreador de errores” instead. TIA.

(Note: I posted this a year ago as an {{edit request}}, and have now learned that that template is useless and misleading. I suggest you delete it so as not to waste people’s time with it.)

Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

There's no possible literal translation for "Bugtracker" in Spanish. "Rastreador de errores" is in fact similar to "error follower".

I've decided to translate it as "Gestor de incidencias" since it's more broad than just "errors", and is used for tools like Mantis, Jira, etc

Born2bgratis (talkcontribs)

I disagree that it isn’t possible to express the concept in Spanish, and that “rastrear” (‘to track’) and “seguir” (‘to follow’) are somehow interchangeable (it’s not the same as “hacer seguimiento”). However, “Gestor de incidencias” is absolutely fine, since not all requests are bugs (= ‘defectos’), but also it may accomodate enhancement requests (‘solicitudes de mejora’). Thanks!

updating SPARQL endpoints to use https where possible

Summary by Jonas.smedegaard

did a fresh update (only checked for https, forgot which has updated addresses).

Jonas.smedegaard (talkcontribs)

Hi,

I have gone through all SPARQL endpoints listed at Wikidata_Query_Service/User_Manual/SPARQL_Federation_endpoints and tested those using http if they also offer their service on https protocol. Would such change please be permitted?

A few entries have moved to a different URL, which I would also like to change if permitted, thank you.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Be Bold. Make the change. If it isn't wanted, it can be reverted.

Jonas.smedegaard (talkcontribs)

Not an issue of being bold or not, but apparently I was blocked write access initially - no longer.


Too bad - I don't have my notes for those improvements any longer :-(

GreenComputer (talkcontribs)
Ciencia Al Poder (talkcontribs)

I've updated it. Actually, I've created that page, but it doesn't update the link in other languages, because this message apparently is provided by an extension, and all languages have its localized link. Looks like it needs to be changed somewhere else...

This works around the problem, not solves it.
