Hello, could you check your emails and your talk page on thetestwiki.org? I sent 2 emails on March 20 and I left the message on your talk page on April 9.

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

I will never respond to email, consider it a one-way communication channel. As for your talk page request, I'm largely unconcerned. The account will be deflagged for inactivity eventually.

OK, thank you for information.

How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hi!

You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

First admin activity review

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)

Hello! Happy new year. I hope that this message finds you well. I am about to start the first admin activity review round based on the August RfC. I'll post the list at Project:Current issues and on each affected admin talk page. While we've reviewed the list a couple of times to ensure there's no mistakes, we've identified that a couple of tools seem to be lagging behind (or the replicas). Best regards.

Please check your email box.

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

I received your email but have some questions; you seem to already have an account here. Which wiki are you asking about?

ZhuofanWu (talkcontribs)

I`m sorry,I mean your test wiki.

I was wondering if you'd be open to creating a gerrit repo for GTag? That way you would get automatic access to updates and other things.

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

I'm not interested in putting anything on Gerrit for the time being. The upsides are not worth the downsides in my opinion (that is: lack of ultimate control over what does/doesn't get merged in and the fact Gerrit itself is a gigantic pain in the rear to work with).

I may re-evaluate when/if GitLab happens, but even then the control issue still exists. I have had issues in the past where well-meaning contributors break the compatibility policy with their updates or just outright break the extension in general due to not understanding what it does (and not testing), and someone else who similarly has no understanding and didn't do any testing +2's it.

MarkAHershberger (talkcontribs)

Understood. I just discovered this and deployed it so I thought I'd ask.

"mdwiki" is not approved as a Connected App. Contact the application author for help.--~~~~

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

The OAuth application has not yet been approved yet, please give it a few days. Was just approved actually, so should work now.

Updated

Awesome Aasim (talkcontribs)

MW 1.33 was released and I was wondering if you can update it? I would like access to the partial blocks feature so I can test it.

Awesome Aasim (talkcontribs)

(unrelated) can you also change my username on the test wiki? Thanks.

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

Getting it updated to 1.33 is on my todo list. To request a rename, please request on my talk page on TheTestWiki itself.

Sorry about the thank that I gave you accidentally. My fingers slipped. I am not getting any error on test wiki by the way.

I thought you were talking about test.wikipedia.org. Sorry for wasting your time.

No worries!

Cannot access TheTestWiki without VPN

Can you see if any IP addresses that look like 99.9.xx.xx have been blocked from the entire site recently? (Not blocked from editing, blocked from viewing the entire site.) Can you also check for 403 errors?

Using 2.3.1 (eb18c26) 14:36, 15 March 2019 on MediaWIki 1.33, Centos 7

When Executing any script from the Maintenance page I get

HTTP 500 error

That’s odd... the website can’t display this page

I don't see any required dependencies, any reason why it fails.

Skizzerz (talkcontribs)

I do not maintain that extension anymore, so it is possible that it is no longer compatible with recent MediaWiki versions. As I am not involved with the extension anymore, I'm not going to devote any time to helping you find or fix any issues. Look at blank page for general troubleshooting tips.
