Thank you for cool edit on Extension:SpecialDeleteOldRevisions2 ! It is late and my head is of... It's good that you are on guard!
Thank you for appreciating my work here and trying to do my best. Nice to know that this does not happen unnoticed.
Not only that, but you're updating existing pages, which is often so much harder than writing pages from scratch. :-)
I do not think that it is harder, but it indeed may take more time.
I am having HUGE troubles getting your ContactPage extension to work with my wiki.
I'm getting the following error message on Special:Contact DESPITE specifying a valid email in LocalSettings.php
"No email address
This user has not specified a valid email address."
I'm using MW 1.25.2 with the master branch of ContactPage, (although the 1.25 stable ContactPage does the same thing).
The syntax I'm using is: 'SenderEmail' => 'admin AT smiliepedia DOT org',
NOTE: This *is* also the default $wgPasswordSender which also works for sending/receiving emails, just not with this extension.
Can you please assist me with getting it to work?
Kind regards, -- User:BradLeeBH
Hi BradleeBH, well this is not an extension I developed and as a matter of fact I am not even a programmer. However, I answered on the extension's help page. Cheers
Sorry, I saw you had replied on some of the threads and mistook you for one of the extension developers.
No worries. I use this one too and the docu was pretty bad back when. So I helped answer questions as good as I can.
Seems nice at first glance, why do you think it is going to be bad ?
It adds a dependency to a software (VisualEditor) which is still serving in alpha quality and slows down editing. I fear that this will also impact power users since switching between the modes currently appears to be an issue. I am not even speaking about wikis which cannot afford to run parsoid for one reason or the other. Still a long way to go. Let's see what happens.
Oh, I did not dig it too much, thought it is going to be just a beautified UI for source editing. But if they're going to use Parsoid, it will be a really weird solution. Though, I see no reason for Parsoid there, because Parsoid primary task is to convert html into wiki markup and vise-versa, it's unnecessary when dealing with raw source code. We'll see.
I also personally see no reason to use Parsoid, perhaps for switching somehow between the modes. Still, in case we need VisualEditor we also need Parsoid.
Hola, what is your name?

Done - feedback provided.
I am new in Mediawiki. Whitch extensen do you use for your talk page?
Hi I noticed that you changed the info box on UserPageEditProtectin from being unmaintained to stable. However you keep the note about the extension still being unmaintained, which leads me to believe that you found the extension currently works with 1.27. Am I making a correct assumption? As always thanks for any insights you can give. All the best to you
Yes, this extension works with MediaWiki 1.27.x so we are safe till June 2019. :) When it comes to the overall status the following thread contains still valid information.
It will be nice if you could post future extension specific questions on the extension's talk page since I am afraid that no other interested party will have a look here on my talk page. You can do a ping from there.
I support only easy fixes so it is labelled "unmaintained" as a precaution.
Hi just wondering why Extension:UserPageEditProtection is marked as unmaintained by you when it seems a new updated version just came two months ago and this version came out after the extension was marked as unmaintained. Was thinking of using the extension, but the unmaintained thing has me confused (especially since there's lots of extensions that seem not to have been updated, or changed, for a far longer time). Thanks for any insight you can gave.
Hi, this is a matter of caution. I am not really a programmer so I can only do basic stuff. In case something goes wrong I may not be able to fix it. Basically I do not want to make false promises and that is why I marked it as unmaintained. However I found this extension useful and this is why I have it deployed on some wikis. I do however think that it is not an overly complicated extension so in case something does not work it will hopefully be easy to find someone who can help. Cheers
Thank you for the kitten. :)
Thanks a bunch.
