Note about VE and the read mode on Sept. 1th 2020

2
Jeblad (talkcontribs)

Unless the bug is fixed in VE and WtE, they will get stuck if you try to save when the servers are offline, and possibly also in read only mode. They will not get unstuck before the server is back in normal operation. In some cases (and I have no idea why) the browser seems to timeout (usually it doesn't) and you get an error page. If the server has processed the post-request, then there might be a backup. Also in some cases it seems like the browser has the edited page in the local cache, but it is not given that the web page is still functional (JavaScript may have croaked).


So in short, users should make a local backup before they try to post their edits.


(And yeah, some coders will now insist that I debug the whole problem, which I will not do…)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm not sure to understand: is this to warn me or to warn some devs or to tell people about something?

Translated template updated with outdated text

Tacsipacsi (talkcontribs)

Hi! When marking Template:Growth/Active wikis for translation, FuzzyBot unfortunately picked up an outdated version (again), see the English diff (fawiki missing). Please go to https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:PageTranslation/Template:Growth/Active_wikis&do=mark and press the button once more; this should make FuzzyBot find the right version. (Please note that even though the page’s current version is marked for translation, no dummy edit is needed since a change to the extension a few weeks ago.) Thanks in advance!

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello

Thank you for the ping. I pressed the button once again.

It seems to work now, since I made the translation in French.

Tacsipacsi (talkcontribs)

Thanks! Actually “since I made the translation in French” is not a good indicator—it automatically updated the wiki list when I updated the Hungarian translation, well before you marked the page for translation once again; the bug affects only translations (including the /en page) that are not touched manually. Anyway, the /en page was updated, so it really works.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Okay, got it now. :)

Activate Structured Discussions on vec.wikipedia

Fierodelveneto (talkcontribs)

Good morning, the message has just arrived on the coffee page of vec.wiki and it is interesting that again you can ask for the activation of structured discussions in the wiki. I think they are much more useful and easier to use than the typical very complicated discussions for new users. I would like to request its activation on the discussion of the home page and on coffee (which we call Ciàcołe), so as to increase and facilitate the participation of visitors to the Wikipedia in the Venetian language. I don't know if it's possible, but it would be very useful to be able to activate it in the discussions of the user pages! Thank you very much for reading, I apologize for the bother and thank you in advance for the answer!

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello

Thank you for your message.

There is no more activations of Structured Discussions. Which message did you received about it?

However, I may have two things that may help you concerning discussions and welcoming newcomers. :)

First project: Talk pages project/replying is a new project to add more obvious ways to reply to a message. This is a work in progress, but you can ask the project team to consider adding your wiki to their current deployment plan.

Second project: Growth features are a set of tools that help new users to make their first steps on wiki. They receive suggestions of edits to make and a mentor to contact if they have questions. You can get these features by getting a community agreement about them, and listing requested information on Phabricator (see there to know more about it). I work on this project, and I can help you if you have questions!

Fierodelveneto (talkcontribs)

Hi, here it is .. here you can find the message that has been sent to us regarding the comments. --> vec:Wikipedia:Ciàcołe#Editing news 2020 #2

I apologize for the delay! A greeting and a big thank you for your availability

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Fierodelveneto (talkcontribs)

Oh! Thank you very much and I apologize for the inconvenience! Let's say that understanding English is not something I do well! haha. A great greeting.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

No problem! I'm really happy to help you! :D

Sure! :)

FR translation done - anyone to reread ?

Christian Wia (talk) 19:38, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Why "Editing News #1—July 2019" remains in ENglish on my FR translated page ? ...it should be also translated (please adapt EN page, and resubmit). thanks.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thank you for the translation!

The newsletter will be delivered by MassMessage, which will ignore that line anyway.

Jeblad (talkcontribs)
Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello

Great news! Please ask me about anything related to these prototypes or their deployment.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Jeblad (talkcontribs)

No response, so it will not get enough votes. Perhaps later.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

A text needs translations in German, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Portuguese (and more languages are welcomed):

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Office_actions/Community_consultation_on_partial_and_temporary_office_actions/09_2019

Direct translation link: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Office+actions%2FCommunity+consultation+on+partial+and+temporary+office+actions%2F09+2019&language=&action=page&filter=

Ideally, the message should be translated by Monday.

Thank you for your help!

Display whether Thanks has been given(& no. of thanks given) to a reply on Structured discussions

Falcopragati (talkcontribs)

I think you raised a very valid point in T181753.

I am also trying to do that in my wiki. Is that task abandoned or someone is working on it?

Can the number of ‘thanks’ be stored in a variable or in the database and can be displayed for each comment?


Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Tasks are not really abandoned: they are open to be grabbed by someone who can work on them. It is like adopting a kitten. :)

No clue concerning the technical details: if I was a developer, I think I would have work on it, but I'm not a developer.

About Growth Team in Vietnamese Wikipedia

Bluetpp (talkcontribs)

Hello,

I was informed that you're looking for a team for a project in ViWiki, I'd like to help the project. How can I help? Thank you very much. Bluetpp (talk) 11:00, 19 October 2018 (UTC)

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hello Bluettp and thank you for your message!

So far, we are looking for a wiki that agrees to work with us. You can hep by looking at the ressources we have. minhhuy has forgotten the links in his message - not a big deal, it happens. :)

If your community agrees to work with us, we will globally need help on translating the tools.

Each project has some specific tasks to work on:

  • for Understanding first day (Hiểu được Ngày đầu tiên), we will need your community help to edit some templates and pages. This is needed to know where people go when they create an account.
  • for Personalized first day (Cá nhân hóa Ngày đầu tiên), we will ask newcomers about their motivation. Why have they created an account? About which topics do they want to edit pages? Do they want to be contacted by a volunteer via email? We will need a list of the most active wikiprojects your community have and some people ready to reply to some emails (that option is still under discussion).
  • for the focus on the help desk we will need more people ready to reply to newcomers. We will provide some advice for people who are not sure about how to interact with new users.

I will recontact your community about all those tasks if you all agree to work with us.

Your community will get some benefits from those experiments: you will have a better understanding of what people do and want to do when they create an account on Vietnamese Wikipedia. You will also have a better way to interact with them.

Do not hesitate to tell me if you need more information. You can share what I've written to your community. If your community has questions, please gather them on Vietnamese Wikipedia's Thảo luận, I'll reply there.

Thank you again for your help!

I want to add Structured Discussions Extension to my wiki..

Falcopragati (talkcontribs)

Does anybody knows the correct way to do so ??

Using MediaWiki for the first time

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)
Falcopragati (talkcontribs)

(I have posted this on Extension talk:StructuredDiscussions also)


My MediaWiki version is - 1.32.2 .

I have installed the 'Extension:Flow' to my wiki, it appears in the 'Installed Extensions' section on my Wiki too.

But it is not running properly, instead this error is occurring-->

Fatal error: Class 'Pimple\Container' not found in C:\wamp64\www\wiki\extensions\Flow\includes\Container.php on line 5


The Extension-Distributor for this Extension is bugged at the moment also.

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm sorry but I can't help you. What you've posted is gibberish to me! :D

Developers will reply on the talk page about the extension soon.

Falcopragati (talkcontribs)

ok

Summary by RhinosF1

Qualtrics was withdrawn - Discussion regarding communication ongoing

RhinosF1 (talkcontribs)

As asked previously on the Individual feedback page, When will the Qualtrics survey be available for the talk pages consultation?

Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm afraid that option is not on the table anymore. We had some issues to configure it and the deadline is soon.

RhinosF1 (talkcontribs)
Trizek (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I need to confirm that first. Thank you for the ping though! :)

RhinosF1 (talkcontribs)

@Trizek (WMF): What is their to confirm? If the option is not available then you should tell people especially when someone has asked about it.


If you're on IRC, please feel free to PM me (RF1dle) as long as you have a registered nick.
