Apparently, Mediawiki pages cannot be created inside the Wikipedia themselves, how can we add the WikiLove feature to the Central Kurdish Wikipedia? Should we create a certain page from this site? Help would be much much appreciated. Thanks.

How do I add the WikiLove extension to my UserTalk page?

This post was posted by Smlombardi, but signed as Stmullin.

Which wiki is your home wiki?

Note that you cannot see the extension on your own talk page. You can see it on other user's talk pages, however.

Can someone please tell me whether I'm on the right track with trying to understand how WikiLove might be deployed in the Simple English Wikipedia? I've been trying to follow various sets of instructions, and a discussion has started again in the Wiki that might lead to a consensus for requesting deployment (this has been discussed at some length before). Is the following correct?

Simple English has been started on translatewiki.net but isn't listed at MediaWiki.
(I'm able to select Simple English as a language, but there don't seem to be any translations with it on translatewiki.net.)
Simple English has not reached the 18%-translated point that is mentioned in the FAQ as a criterion for listing at MediaWiki.
Simple English may never reach that point because of its nature as a close relative of EN.
WikiLove cannot be deployed at Simple English until its WikiLove messages have been translated TranslateWiki, as mentioned on this page.

Therefore, the discussion should stop because WikiLove is not available to small projects like Simple English Wikipedia. Thanks for any advice, I'm quite lost here.

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

The translatewiki page seemed to be empty/broken, but if I go to another language first, and then change to Simple English, the needed translations appeared: https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&group=ext-wikilove&filter=!translated&language=es&optional=1&action=translate Try selecting Simple English, from here?

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Thanks very much. Now that I have an account, I was able to enter translations by that round-about route.

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

If you insist on doing so, however, I'll delete them. I already told you not to.

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Wow, thank you, that gets me to the list! (However, I have so far been unable to make a signon for translatewiki.net because my translation record is non-existent, as it seems to be inevitable that it would be, since I don't have an account. I'll try again to make a signon.)

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

Ah, yeah. That wiki is not part of the Wikimedia wiki-farm/family, so you'll need to create a new account there. (A frequently confusing step :)

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Indeed. :-( Some people have somehow managed to sign up, but all I get is email with "Thank you for applying as a translator at translatewiki.net. I regret to inform you that I have rejected your application, because the quality of your translations did not meet the requirements." Zero translations = inadequate quality, apparently. Of course, this is not the place to complain about that. Thank you for your reply.

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

I was given an account, perhaps as a result of this discussion, so was able to proceed.

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

As implied by bugzilla:70612#c1, the localisation requirement there doesn't apply to the Simple English Wikipedia. The wiki's locale is "en", from MediaWiki's perspective, so you're all set. Sorry for the confusion!

Sminthopsis84 (talkcontribs)

Well, I'm completely lost and don't understand this at all. Now I have an angry message that I should not have proceeded with translating the messages. Clearly, translatewiki.net is beyond my comprehension. I'll see if I can find a way to have my account deleted.

Nemo bis (talkcontribs)

I'll try to be clearer. Quiddity was wrong, you don't need to translate anything to get this extension on simple.wiki. Ok?

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

(My apologies for confusing things. >.< )

Sminthopsis84, I believe the next step (once you have local consensus at simple:) is to file a bug, per steps 2 and 3 at m:Requesting wiki configuration changes. You should just need a Summary ("Enable WikiLove at Simple Wikipedia") and a link to the onwiki discussion. Hopefully Nemo can confirm or correct me.

At the English Wikipedia, I am unable to locate the method for disabling this feature in my user preferences.

Bluerasberry (talkcontribs)

Several people hear ask about instructions for disabling. I also wanted to check this, and the instructions seem outdated because I see no "miscellaneous" tab in preferences.

Is this tool on by default for all users? Can it be turned off in preferences?

Fabsouza1 (talkcontribs)

Preferences, in the 3rd. tab

Quiddity (talkcontribs)

bugzilla:52757 moved it to the Editing tab. I've updated the explanation on the docs page.

It has been raised adding more pictures like barnstars, kitten or so. but someone said 'I doubt whether such a thing is possible.' is that true?

Reply to "I want more Kitten or so."
Thnidu (talkcontribs)

The lede says

It was originally developed by Ryan Kaldari as a user script, and is now available as a MediaWiki extension.

To a non-developer, this can suggest that an ordinary wiki user can use the extension. I've added

that developers can add to their wikis

to the end of the sentence.

If I wanted this kind of intrusive nonsense on my page this post would be on Facebook. IMNSHO this cutesy rubbish has no place here. Wikimedia projets are serious work, not for social networking. This stuff should be an opt-in extra, not an "on by default" feature. I'm not an eight year old little girl who likes decorating her room with pink ponies! Yuck! Dodger67 16:54, 6 July 2011 (UTC)

No. I completely agree. It reminds of the stupid huggy Esperanza project (which got shut down).

TMg (talkcontribs)

I agree. The WikiLove comments are like spam. I don't want to receive such crap. Where is the opt-out setting?

Steven (WMF) (talkcontribs)

WikiLove are simply talk page edits assisted by a special interface. The only way to opt-out of talk page comments is to get your user talk page protected.

TMg (talkcontribs)

I don't want to "opt-out of talk page comments". I never said that. I want to disable this tool for my talk page. Simple.

MartinPoulter (talkcontribs)

The talk page messages that are added by WikiLove can still be added in other ways. The point of a tool like this is obviously to make things easier for new users, so having it disabled by default would defeat the purpose. You're free to delete unwelcome comments from your Talk page. The "social networking" comment is irrelevant. Thanking people for work they have done is not "social networking". It's just being nice and creating a welcoming atmosphere: something we seriously need to get sorted out in order to get help with all the serious work that needs doing.

TMg (talkcontribs)

Adding a "thank you" to my talk page is one thing. Throwing stupid kittens at me is an other thing. This is spam. I repeat: Where is the opt-out setting? At least let me disable the stupid images. Or simply redirect the people and help them add a new section to my talk page. Without the spam. Thank you.

WikiLove not functional on widescreen laptop due to disabled scrolling

MartinPoulter (talkcontribs)

I'm using Chrome on Windows 7 on a modern-ish widescreen laptop. I can't use WikiLove on English Wikipedia because it disables vertical scrolling, so when I create and preview the message, the button to continue and post is below my (768 pixel high) screen and so I can't get to it. This makes for a very frustrating experience. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's not obvious what. I ended up just pasting in the barnstar the original way, but I can imagine a newcomer being very discouraged by what's supposed to be a simple transaction. Thanks in advance for any help, and in general for WikiLove which, when it works, is a good feature.

The code works great--but I couldn't get it to add a subtype. What does the code look like to add a subtype? I.e. how would I add "hedgehog" to say, food type? Lionelt (talk) 05:20, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
