Notice: Admin activity review

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hello Lhridley,

I hope that this message finds you well.

I am writing to inform you that you may lose your adminship (and other advanced permissions) on mediawiki.org because of inactivity.

A policy regarding the removal of advanced permissions (e.g.: administrator, bureaucrat, interface-admin, etc.) was adopted by community consensus in 2013. While initially that policy did not apply to this site, the mediawiki.org community decided in August 2020 to opt-in.

You are being notified because we have identified that your account meets the inactivity criteria stated in the policy: no edits and no administrative log actions for the last 2 years.

  • If you want to keep your advanced permissions, you should inform the community (at Project:Current issues) about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. A community notice about this process has been also posted on said page. If the community has a discussion about it and then wants you to keep your advanced permissions, please contact the stewards at the stewards noticeboard, and link to the discussion of the local community, where they express their wish for you to continue to maintain your advanced permissions.
  • If you wish to resign your advanced permissions, you may do so by filing a request for removal on Meta-Wiki.
  • If there is no response at all on one month after this notification, the stewards will proceed to remove your advanced permissions without further notice.

In ambiguous cases, stewards will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review.

If you have any questions, please let me know or feel free to message us at the stewards. If you feel we've made a mistake and your account is active, we'd also appreciate to let us know, and please accept our apologies.

Best regards,

InternalWhitelist thanks and question

Ms. Ridley:

Thanks for your InternalWhitelist extension. I use it on my church wiki to control public access. I have modified your extension to also whitelist all pages in the 'Public' category. This suits my purposes well.

I would like to know hot best to contribute my mods to your code.

Should I edit your extension page?

Should I create another page with a fork of you code?

Should I just submit my changes directly to you?

I've never contributes to OS upstream code, so I'm basically just learning.

Thanks for the great extension!

Troy Hester

Hi, Lisa! Just wanted to ask whether you'd already tried Git (with Developer access), and whether you needed any help getting into that. Thanks!

Hello Lisa, I am the skin creator/extension handler for the Wizard101Central Wiki. I'm a huge fan of you and your work.

I see that you are developing an extension for editing forms. I am looking for a decent extension that is similar to the OC form extensions. Basically, on our wiki, every page is created entirely by infoboxes that we created. These are also separated by custom namespaces.

I was wondering if your extension will fit our needs and what the status on it is. What we need is to have a form per namespace. In each form, have fields for each parameter in the template. Our users are of the younger audience and wiki code is too advanced for them.

I have been attempting to modify the OC extensions to fit our templates but am having little luck (I'm not a php programmer... yet...). I hope to hear from you soon about this extension and it's capabilities.

Thank you for taking the time to read my message.

What is this forum style messaging system? It's really nice looking...
