How to add magnifier icon to Tab panel

2
Dvorapa (talkcontribs)

If I create a dashboard, there is an option to combine more queries into Tab panel. But tab panel is missing a magnifier icon if I want to see more results (like older or something). Is there a way how to work it around?

I tried to list merged commits of project pywikibot here, but as you can see I was not successful. I listed all commit activity on that project (patch uploads, comments, reviews, abandons, tests, etc.), commits are listed twice or even more times here. Could you help me to create list (query) of merged commits only? In addition I would like to see, which files were changed and who was the last patch uploader, but this is not so important.

Tl;dr: I want to achieve the same list as Gerrit's Merged Changes (past week)

Hello! Today I've tried to log into my Phabricator account, but it seems that it is disabled. Could you please tell me the reason of disabling and how can I restore it back?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The "Rendann" user account seems to be a sockpuppet of the user account "NoRandom". Correct?

Rendann (talkcontribs)

Not exactly. That is unused account.

CC'ing @Jalexander-WMF who might know

@Rendann Sorry for the speed in getting back to you on this it's been a bit busy here and I wanted to have time to double check some things. If you want to appeal the ban I will have to ask you to send an email to me (either personally at jalexander@wikimedia.org or to my larger team at ca@wikimedia.org). That appeal will also cover your accounts (which I'm about to block). While I certainly may be wrong the evidence I have makes it appear that you're likely to be a globally banned user and at this point it's likely enough that I'm going to shut all of the accounts down. I will be happy to discuss an appeal privately if you wish to do so.

Hello. Yesteday I've tried to close via email command a task assigned to me as resolved (phab:T150586). I've tried !close two times and !status resolved one time but the task didn't update. A couple of days ago I've also tried to raise the task priority via email command to phab:T150925 whithout success either. I'm not sure if this is happening just to me or you've just disabled this kind of operations. Thanks in advance for your help.

MarcoAurelio (talkcontribs)

The problem seems to be with email in general. I cannot issue email commands nor even reply to Tasks via email when it was possible before.

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thanks for reporting this in phab:T151229. The problem (and its resolution) was also announced here, to help other people discover the issue.

Hi, I am not sure how to move forward, but it was suggested I post on this page. We initially proposed this project on Village pump (idea lab) The proposal generated a good amount of activity with some very positive feedback, but lead to no conclusion or direction.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

(extract from Village pump (idea lab))

Provide a Wikipedia search service that indexes Wikipedia data semantically, based on sentence structure; subject, subject complement, or direct object, etc. versus just key words. Recognize information that is not directly communicated by the author, by relating acronyms, abbreviations, and compound nouns to appropriate subject matter within an article. Results will be ordered and prioritized by the strength of the correlation of search term to the sentences returned. Results will provide full sentences where possible, with deep links to those sentences, making it possible for users to jump directly to those sentences of interest. Such a tool will improve the search experience within Wikipedia and increase the value of the Wikipedia data. Any help or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

See a demo at www.wikisandy.org

Thanks.

Thomas

Thanks, Thomas. What is your question? :) Phabricator offers a place to plan and manage existing code & non-code projects. If you have a code project related to WikiSandy its code could potentially be hosted in Wikimedia Git/Gerrit and its development tasks could be managed in Wikimedia Phabricator. But it's unclear to me what you'd like to have help with...

Sandypondfarm (talkcontribs)

Thanks for your reply. We are a small startup that is looking to offer a radical shift in search technology, which at this time is hosted our infrastructure. We have received very positive feedback, and encouragement, but like I said no conclusion or direction, on how to move forward. We are looking for for evaluation and potential adoption

If you could point us in the right direction? If there is a direction?

Thanks

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Direction for what? Again, I do not know what your actual question is. Can you be more explicit please?

Hi! Can someone delete my Phabricator account? I created it to ask a question then found the answer elsewhere. The account name is Nadhika99 (i changed my Wiki username to this one)

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi. Why do you need your account deleted (instead of just ignoring its existence)?

RavenNR (talkcontribs)

I just don't like having random unused accounts and passwords and I know I won't use it again.

Is there any way to visualise the dependencies between all tasks in a project or sub project?

Hi

I'm currently working as Wikimedian in Residence at UNESCO and I'm planning on using Phabricator to organise my work but I'm struggling to find ways to make the projects I'm doing and the steps to make those projects happen more understandable to other people.

Is there some way of visualising all the steps in a project or sub project as some kind of flow diagram? I know there is the task graph but I need something that gives a wider overview.

Thanks

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Not that I know, sorry.

John Cummings (talkcontribs)

No problem :) I'll work something out, I feel like this might be useful tool to have in future

Cannot verify wrong email for new phabricator account

Gianttrombone (talkcontribs)

Hello,

When trying to sign in to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org for the first time, I typed in the wrong email address, and I don't have access to the one I entered. Hence, I cannot get or answer the "verify email address" email, nor can I change my email address, so I've locked myself out of phabricator.

Would you kindly look into the issue?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I destroyed the unused account https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/gianttrombone/ which was linked to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Gianttrombone . Please try re-registering in Phabricator. Thanks!

Weird message when viewing notifications in web

Kaartic (talkcontribs)

When viewing the notifications in the web view the end of the list contains a weird message "Notification server not enabled". What's that supposed to mean ? Further, it seems to be overlapping on something.

The tail of the notification bar of Wikimedia Phabricator containing a weird message.

Kaartic (talkcontribs)

Seems to be quite an epic task! What about the weird thing which the message overlaps ?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Content overlap sounds like a bug, and bugs can be reported in the bug tracker. :D

Kaartic (talkcontribs)

Filed it! It's task T166448.
