Is it possible to move the page Extension:BlueSpiceQrCode to the archived page Extension:QrCode since most users might look for a current extension there?

Pppery (talkcontribs)

Please post this at somewhere more central, such as Project:Current issues. Although I happen to be active at cleaning up the Extension namespace (both BlueSpice and non-BlueSpice extensions), I don't think it would be right for me to make this decision unilaterally.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

I suggest running for adminship here - I would be happy to nominate you. You'd be able to delete all of the cleanup yourself after a week, action speedy deletion, etc. Thoughts?

Pppery (talkcontribs)

It seems very surprising that a wiki would accept a user who has only been editing actively for about three weeks as an administrator.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

mediawiki is different from most content wikis, but I also didn't realize you had only been here for 3 weeks

Pppery (talkcontribs)

That said, if you think I would be accepted as an admin despite only being active for a few weeks, I would be willing to run. (I've been doing primarily wiki-agnostic cleanup for the last few days, so have very little idea of what the adminship standards for this wiki are.

...I've blocked and reverted what I saw was still live; let me know if you need help cleaning up after that vandal

Pppery (talkcontribs)

I think this might be the first time I've been personally targeted by a vandal in my entire four year career on Wikipedia.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

Unfortunately, I've gotten used to it; the only annoying thing is dealing with flow

Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

I'd second you running for adminship here, you do good work. Certainly more than I've done here as an admin... =D

Minorax (talkcontribs)

Thanks for that. Was using AWB and forgot to filter duplicate pages out.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

I archived this one again since the required Extension:MyInfo is still unpublished and there is no intention visible that it is going to be published. I guess there is nothing we can do about it. PS You are doing a very good job tidying up things here. Much appreciated.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

I misread "The source code of required software to run this extension is unavailable" as "The source code for this extension is unavailable", and noticed that the repo was in fact available when doing cleanup for phab:T190671.

Kghbln (talkcontribs)

No problem at all. Keeping it would be a kind of false promise to interested people I believe.

Please restore this module. It's not for using directly here, it's for copying to other wikis.

Pppery (talkcontribs)

I really don't think that templates and modules that aren't intended to be used on MediaWiki.org should exist on MediaWiki.org, but since I've left other blatantly-out-of-scope multi-site pages such as Module:Location map and Module:WikidataIB alone it would be inconsistent of me not to restore this one, so Yes Done.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

Hi. I saw that you tagged Category:Not LTS ready for deletion - can you make whatever changes are needed to the template so that it isn't populated?

Pppery (talkcontribs)
DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

done

Pppery (talkcontribs)

It appears Template:Tool also needs to be marked for translation; once you do that and null edit PhotoCommons, the category should be empty.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

I made a null edit, but it didn't leave the category...

Pppery (talkcontribs)

You appear to have run into phab:T255334, since my changes weren't actually synced to the translation subpages. The typical workaround for that it to make a dummy edit to the template (typically toggling between <languages/> and <languages />) and then mark it for translation again.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

I did toggle, with no change

Hi! Module:Extension currently answers only if the value of |needs-updatephp= parameter in {{Extension}} is yes, with a comment that it’s unclear whether “no” needs to be explicitly stated. Despite of this uncertainty, you removed |needs-updatephp=No for example here and here with the edit comment “now loaded from extension.json”. While this is certainly not true in this form, I wonder if there has been a discussion deciding on removing such parameters in the meantime. If there was (where?), it should be reflected in the module comment and your edit comments; if there wasn’t, why do you remove the parameters?

Pppery (talkcontribs)

The current situation "certain extensions explicitly specify they don't need update.php to be run, whereas others do not" is clearly undesirable. I personally don't see the point of setting it to no; running update.php unnecessarily does no harm, and I suspect if a page is silent on whether it should be run, the typical uninformed user would not run it.

I believe I must have incorrectly interpreted that comment to mean that needs-updatephp=no is not supported at all, rather than not automatically specified. Either way, it should be auto-filled or not supported by the template at all (and I'm not aware of any discussion), rather than implemented ad hoc; the entire point of my edits was to avoid ad hoc duplication of data.
