Important: Admin activity review (2022)

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)


I hope that this message finds you well. I am writing to inform you that you may lose your advanced permissions on mediawiki.org because of inactivity.

A policy regarding the removal of advanced permissions (e.g.: administrator, bureaucrat, interface-admin, etc.) was adopted by community consensus in 2013. While initially that policy did not apply to this site, the mediawiki.org community decided in August 2020 to opt-in.

You are being notified because we have identified that your account meets the inactivity criteria stated in the policy: no edits and no administrative log actions for the last 2 years.

  • If you want to keep your advanced permissions, you should inform the community (at Project:Village Pump) about the fact that the stewards have sent you this information about your inactivity. A community notice about this process has been also posted on said page. If the community has a discussion about it and supports your continued access to advanced permissions, please contact the stewards at the stewards noticeboard with a link to the discussion.
  • If you wish to resign your advanced permissions, you may do so by filing a request for removal of permissions on Meta-Wiki.
  • If there is no response at all after this notification, the stewards will proceed to remove your advanced permissions without further notice after one month.

In ambiguous cases, stewards will evaluate the responses and will refer a decision back to the local community for their comment and review.

If you have any questions, please let me know or feel free to message us at the stewards' noticeboard. If you feel we've made a mistake and your account is active, we'd also appreciate to let us know, and please accept our apologies.

Best regards,

How we will see unregistered users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Josa 확장 기능의 덮어쓰기 용도

Lens0021 (talkcontribs)

(이 게시글은 한국어 위키백과에 먼저 남겼던 것이나 답이 오지 않아 확인이 어려우신가 하여 이곳으로 옮겨 작성한 것 입니다)

Josa 확장 기능에 대한 미디어위키 문서의 사용법 설명이 코드와 다소 다른 것 같아 수정하였습니다(차이).
제가 영어가 다소 약하여 이상하게 써졌을 것 같은 감이 있지만 일단 아예 없는 것보단 낫겠지 싶어서 열심히 썼습니다.

그런데, Josa의 기능 중 '덮어쓰기'가 어떤 때 쓰기 위해서 만들어진 것인지 잘 이해가 되지 않습니다.
예로 {{#을를:시약 100g|덮어쓰기=을}}를 남겨주셨는데, 이것과 그냥 시약 100g을의 차이를 잘 알 수 없었습니다.
아마 틀과 함께 사용할 때 좀 더 편리하게 쓰는 것이 목적이 아닐까 하고 추측은 하고 있습니다만, *devunt 님께서 설명을 해주시면 좀 더 명확할 것 같습니다.


*devunt (talkcontribs)

안녕하세요, 답이 늦었습니다.

우선 조사 확장기능 페이지에 기여해주셔서 감사드립니다.

덮어쓰기 directive는 이해하신 바와 같이 조사 확장기능의 내장 조사 추측을 무시하고 원하는 것을 출력하고자 할 때 씁니다.

만들 당시에는 특정 상황을 상정하고 만든 것이 아니지만 말씀하신대로 틀과 함께 사용할 때 더 편하게 쓸 수 있을 것 같다는 생각도 듭니다.

즉 별다른 생각 없이 추가한 기능이니 편하신대로 사용하시면 될 것 같습니다.

Question About A Page

Examknow (talkcontribs)

When patrolling the wiki for vandalism I cam across this page called, Submit_new_topic. It seemed to have some business promotion on it and I am not sure wether or not to take action can you or someone else help me?

Hiàn (talkcontribs)

Obviously not *devunt but just letting you know that the page in question has since been deleted by Clump. The best course of action in the future would be to tag it for speedy deletion - a sysop will take a look at the page when they can.

Examknow (talkcontribs)

@Hiàn Okay thank you for your help. Btw I was the one who tagged it for deletion.

Hiàn (talkcontribs)

No worries. A good rule of thumb is that anything remotely unrelated to MediaWiki can usually be considered out of scope and under the speedy deletion policy.

Examknow (talkcontribs)

Ok great thanks

I hope this message finds you well.

I wrote a wiki page and was not allowed to publish it.

What can I do about it? Can you please help?

The message received is the below:

"This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and has been disallowed. If you believe your edit was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: new user youtube, &c."

Thank you in advance for your help!
