Is deletion of comments permanent?

GZWDer (talkcontribs)
  • Is it possible to view a deleted comment? Are those really deleted in database?
  • Is it possible to restore them?

A example for a comment that should be recovered is phab:T195740#4248545 (as various people commented on it)

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@GZWDer Spammers' comments will be removed and there is no reason to recover or restore them. In the case described above, at least for Phab admins there is no user interface to restore them, no.

GZWDer (talkcontribs)

How can an IP comment?

I'll tell the person. Thanks.

Neil Shah-Quinn (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@AKlapper (WMF), I've recently changed my name and would like my Phabricator account changed to match.

My current username is Neil_P._Quinn_WMF. I would like my new name to be nshahquinn-wmf.

I understand this will break all my existing at-mentions; I'm not aware of any other side effects.

Thank you!

Thank you very much! 8 minutes turnaround time...not bad 😂

Is this file in a bug report?

I don't think we have any "Show file usage" option on Phabricator. Addition of it would be helpful of course. For now, I recommend to ask the uploader. They might know where it is being used.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Whatamidoing (WMF) That file is not linked/mentioned in any task, as the file page has no "Attached" tab which would link to the task.

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

You are right. For phab:F30986055 does have a "Attached" tab. I don't think Phabricator have any feature to show external site usage or if it's being used by external websites.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

It does not, as Phab does not run a search engine in the background which crawls the entire internet to find out if an image uploaded in Phab is embedded on another website. :P

Can my Phab account (no activity) be deleted?

予弦 (talkcontribs)

I want to give up my account (Siuhkjit) . Thanks.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

I don't know if it can be deleted, but would you like me to disable it?

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

A phabricator admin can delete your account.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi, I'm not sure which problem this would solve?

予弦 (talkcontribs)

I simply want to give up my account.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

You could simply ignore its existence.

Phatality documentation out of place?

5
Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'd have expected the documentation about Phatality to go on the pages about logstash (where it is installed and used), not here. @Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE), you feel it belongs here?

Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talkcontribs)

Well, I thought it would be useful to have some link to it on both mw.org and wikitech, and as far as I’m aware mw.org doesn’t have dedicated logstash pages. A full documentation, if someone feels inspired to write it, should probably be closer to logstash, yes.

Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talkcontribs)
Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Ah, yes, I don't have that on stalk. (We really should scrap wikitech, it's such a useless divergence). Maybe cross-link to wikitech where we'll put documentation(!?). @MModell (WMF), did you plan to document it?

MModell (WMF) (talkcontribs)

The only documentation, so far, is in the form of a blog post. I'll write a bit more but there really isn't a lot to say about it I think.

Pavithraes (talkcontribs)

I was wondering if there are any rules or conventions for awarding tokens on Phabricator. Are tokens awarded to the task as whole or in reaction to a comment posted or both?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Rules or conventions: Not that I knew. It's all left to the interpretation of the viewer. :)

Python 3.7: imagetransfer can only concat str (not "byte") to str

Summary by AKlapper (WMF)

Off-topic - This is for Phabricator. Please ask Pywikibot questions in a Pywikibot forum.

Chihaya~chan (talkcontribs)

I am using Python 3.7 and I tried to use imagetransfer but it returns error, for example:

>>> python pwb.py imagetransfer "File:Rifle is Beautiful volume 1 cover.jpg" -tolang:vi -dir:en


0. Found image: File:Rifle is Beautiful volume 1 cover.jpg

Traceback (most recent call last):

WARNING: .\scripts\imagetransfer.py:140: DeprecationWarning: pywikibot.page.FilePage.fileUrl is deprecated for 3 years and 4 months; use get_file_url instead.
  url = sourceImagePage.fileUrl().encode('utf-8')

    pywikibot.output('URL should be: ' + url)

I also change url = sourceImagePage.fileUrl().encode('utf-8') to url = sourceImagePage.get_file_url().encode('utf-8') but still not working Any solution? Thanks a lot.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

This seems to be about "imagetransfer" (whatever that is) and not about Phabricator itself, hence closing this as off-topic. Please ask in a related support forum for whatever software you are referring to.

Framawiki (talkcontribs)

Disable my Phabricator account, please!

Summary by Masumrezarock100

Account renamed

In fact (talkcontribs)

Please disable my Phabricator account with no activity , so that I can create a new one.

Thanks in advanced.

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

Please also note that Phabricator accounts can be deleted. Do you want an admin to delete your account instead?

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)
In fact (talkcontribs)

All I want to do is to rename my Phabricator account. What is the best way to do it ?

Masumrezarock100 (talkcontribs)

I am guessing they want to create a new one because of the current one's username. If that's the case, renaming the account would suffice.

GZWDer (talkcontribs)

A question about phab:T108586: Does running Herald rules blocks every change to every task? Many rules should actually run asynchronously ("as a job").

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Yes, Herald is synchronous (hence why we discourage new/more complex Herald rules). There's no such thing as asynchronous "jobs" in Phabricator, that's a MediaWiki concept.

GZWDer (talkcontribs)

So it may be meaningful to ask upstream to allow running some Herald rules asynchronously. This will optimize performance significantly, giving the low transaction rate (=frequency of actions) in Phabricator.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

No, that's not a plausible request and I would not endorse it.
