Universal Code of Conduct - Enforcement draft guidelines review

1
MNadzikiewicz (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2 drafting committee would like comments about the enforcement draft guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC). This review period is planned to begin 17 August 2021.

Community and staff members collaborated to develop these draft guidelines based on consultations, discussions, and research. These guidelines are not final but you can help move the progress forward. Provide comments about these guidelines by 17 October 2021. The committee will be revising the guidelines based upon community input.

Everyone may share comments in a number of places. Facilitators welcome comments in any language on the draft review talk page or by email. Comments can also be shared on talk pages of translations, at local discussions, or during round-table discussions and conversation hours.

There are planned live discussions about the UCoC enforcement draft guidelines:

Wikimania 2021 session (recorded 16 August)
Conversation hours - 24 August, 31 August, 7 September @ 03:00 UTC & 14:00 UTC
Roundtable calls - 18 September @ 03:00 UTC & 15:00 UTC

The facilitation team supporting this review period hopes to reach a large number of communities. Having a shared understanding is important. If you do not see a conversation happening in your community, please organize a discussion. Facilitators can assist you in setting up the conversations.

Discussions will be summarized and presented to the drafting committee every two weeks. The summaries will be published here.

Please let me know if you have any questions. ~~~~

Summary by Clump

wrong place for this concern

Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talkcontribs)

Hello, line 4873 of file DefaultSettings.php reads $wgMaxTemplateDepth = 40 . Apparently "The current parser adds two levels to the PHP call stack for each template, and xdebug limits the call stack to 100 by default. So this should hopefully stop the parser before it hits the xdebug limit." This suggests the maximum depth could be amended to 48 or 49. For wikispecies there is an issue with eg where there are c.43 templates, and so the category "Pages where expansion depth is exceeded" is created. It is unclear if there are other repercussion. Please advise as to the impact on Anas formosa - and the possibility of the limit being increased as above. Thank you, ~~~~

Updating == See also == on Gerrit/Code_review/Getting_reviews

Michaelcochez (talkcontribs)

In the 'see also' section Gerrit/Code review/Getting reviews#See also , there are two outdated links.

I wanted to change the links from http://www.gossamer-threads.com/ to https://lists.archive.carbon60.com/ because the gossamer-threads.com domain is now forwarding to a not relevant website.

But, I got an error (It seems that you're trying to add an external link to a page. ...)

Can someone change these links? Perhaps it is even better to link to archive.org

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hey there. I've replaced the links with links to our first-party archive, which are now stable, unlike in the old mailman2 times, AIUI.

There are quite a few links to that old third-party archive, sadly.

About translation pages of Skin:Lakeus

5
Lakejason0 (talkcontribs)

In the original page Skin:Lakeus, the first line description is not seperated into two lines, but in Skin:Lakeus/zh, it is separated.

Also the "Planned Features" paragraph; the link to Skin:Vector using {{Ll}} with parameter nsp is set to 0; however it still shows the ns prefix in zh subpage, while the other two links does not.

Can someone help me fix these problem? I would like these to behave the same as the original page.

Shirayuki (talkcontribs)

(1)It is caused by {{NoteTA}}.

(2){{ll}} does not support translated namespace names (皮肤, etc.).

Lakejason0 (talkcontribs)

somehow the reply button does not work; I have put my reply below.

Lakejason0 (talkcontribs)

(1) hmm, but NoteTA is required in this case (since only `zh` is available for translation and we are told to use NoteTA and Language Converter syntax to apply regional differences); I guess I'll just say "fine". Seems like can be fixed by adding a return line after {{NoteTA}}.

(2) I simply would like to remove the prefix in that ll template. Why other two links are fine?

Remove main namespace from wgExtraSignatureNamespaces

4
Matma Rex (talkcontribs)

I am planning to remove the main namespace from the wgExtraSignatureNamespaces configuration setting on this wiki. I think this will have very little impact, but letting you know just in case. For more context, see task T291630 (although I'm happy to reply here if you have any questions).

Currently, that configuration setting affects:

It was configured that way in 2014 for all "special" wikis (basically, anything other than the Wikimedia projects with multiple language versions), on the assumption that they often have discussions, including their "village pump" equivalent, in [main namespace]. This doesn't seem correct for this wiki. We're planning to use that config setting for future discussion-related features, and it would probably be unexpected if they showed up in the main namespace here.

Please let me know if there's any problem with this. Thanks.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Sounds good to me.

Este projeto trata-se do meu primeiro usando o MediaWiki. Quando tento criar uma página, surge um aviso de erro informando "Este site é para documentar o software MediaWiki . Não é o wiki que você configurou para sua aula, local de trabalho ou uso pessoal, nem é a Wikipedia."

Alguem saberia dizer por que isso acontece e como corrigir ?
