Phabricator Tasks[edit]

Thanks for fixing up my bum edit. I even created an account on Phabricator and searched for the number. I've just double checked and an advanced search on "T8129" for document type task returns nothing useful and certainly not *sigh*.

Security issue for Widgets[edit]

Hi, about two months ago, you added a "security risk" warning to the top of the Widgets extension page. Could you clarify if this was meant to indicate that cross-site scripting attacks could be added to calls to #widget, or to pages in the "Widget:" namespace, or both? Yaron Koren (talk) 14:57, 21 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Yaron! I added the notice because of bugzilla:39883, which is a very serious issue. Just for the record, I linked that bug on the edit summary when I added the warning. Cheers. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:08, 21 February 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

TextInputField without button (Project:Support desk; 19:26, 16 January 2014)[edit]

Thanks for your help, it works fine. But do you have an idea how I can put 2 or 3 TextInputFields in a single line. It seems that the class forces a new line after every TextInputField. Do you have a workaround to avoid the newline? I have made some examples in [es:Wikilibros]. --Thirunavukkarasye-Raveendran (talk) 21:16, 23 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, User:Thirunavukkarasye-Raveendran. You may ask adding this CSS:
.nobuttons div, .nobuttons p {display:inline;}
.nobuttons div form {display:inline;}
.nobuttons input.searchboxSearchButton {display:none;}
.nobuttons br {display:none;}
Then, You'll need to put both inputbox inside the same div class="nobuttons", or use style="display-inline" on that div, since a div by itself forces a new line. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 21:51, 23 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you for your thank you :-) about Manual:Restoring a wiki from backup[edit]

This where my first edits on this wiki about the MediaWiki software so it's nice to have some confirmation I didn't completely mess up the page :-) I'm still not yet finished. I get an SQL error saying I'm missing the privilege to "DROP" tables when importing the database backup with the current instructions. I'll improve the instructions some more.

BTW my ancestors are Catalan :-) They are from Perpignan, the small part of Catalonia that's in France.

Moltes gràcies i més[edit]

Moltes gràcies per contents. M'has resolt un bon problema per tal de facilitar la traducció a altres usuaris en un wiki (de consells per a pacients oftalmològics i, més endavant, vídeos que estem fent amb el meu fill sobre oftalmologia).

M'agradaria, però, col·laborar amb un exemple complex en les explicacions de Help:Extension:Translate/Page translation administration#Segmentation en l'apartat de variables, utilitzant plantilles i redireccionant a la traducció en l'idioma escollit. No sé com fer-ho ja que no tinc accés a modificar aquella pàgina.

Hello Ciencia, I tried to install Extension:LinkSuggest on my local testing MW and found a possible error within the javascript Jack Phoenix took in recently. I'm not into javascript that good, could you take a look in there, please?

  • Activating the extension supresses up/down keys
  • No suggestions pop up (refer to Extension_talk:LinkSuggest#MW_1.25.1_fixes which fixed another problem on sql query, too)
  • Deactivating the extension lets the cursor move again
  • removing below listed addons results in the same behavior


WikiEditor addons (perhaps there are conflicts?):

Will take a look when I have time, thanks for reporting. In what browsers did you test it? --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 13:52, 19 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Now that is interesting. I wasn't sure I've tested it on Chrome, I just found out it works on Chrome 44.0.2403.155. Though Firefox 40.0.2 isn't happy with my arrow keystrokes. Dominik Maus (talk) 12:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Dominik Maus, I think I've fixed it on gerrit changeset 238018, --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 20:03, 13 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Heya Ciencia, the changes seem to work for me so far, box is coming up and suggests funny things. Thanks alot for your efforts :) There seems to be another problem: The box only pops up after I entered two curly braces. Adding more characters (3+) doesn't update nor show the box anymore. Trying the same using brackets fails completely - no reaction there. I've tested that on Firefox and Chrome as usual. Dominik Maus (talk) 11:52, 14 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That's strange. In fact, when you said it was working on Chrome, I have my objections to that, since I'm pretty sure it couldn't work on any browser since MediaWiki 1.25. Now I've tried with the gadgets you mentioned, since I didn't test with them yet, and I though they would break the script in some way, specially the syntax highlighter, but apparently they don't. It continues to work for me. The only things I found were:
  • I need to also apply gerrit change 225715 on my wiki
  • I've added more pages after testing, and found that requests are cached on the browser, so autocompletions that I've already typed don't update to show the newly added pages.
If it continues failing, try disabling those gadgets and see if it works now, in case there's a specific load order that triggers this incompatibility that I can't reproduce. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:50, 14 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Cheers. Believe it or not, I messed up my system earlier and forgot to include the gerrit change 225715. Your hint saved my day, the script works perfectly now on both, FireFox and Chrome. Thanks alot! Dominik Maus (talk) 12:03, 15 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Found one more thing: On entering '' and choosing an entry in the result list, a simple link is created (not adding the namespace). Edit: That's not only on Category prefixes. Whenever I write a longer passage (ex. 'Primal Instant Heal ') the suggestions are cut off. Dominik Maus (talk) 17:08, 15 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

In Mediawiki:Common.js, make a Piwik tracker code not executed for bot, sysop, bureaucrate[edit]


You might not remember me. But i remember you from Wikia. You were really good with JS code, if i remember correctly, and i learned a lot of usefull thing from you back then. I have quit Wikia some years ago, but i have set up a wiki of my own. I have hard time finding time to work on it though, so it's content is really scarce.

Anyways, today a have a small problem because i'm not good enough with Javascript. Some days ago, i inserted in Mediawiki:Common.js a tracking code that comes from the Piwik software. It's working great. Visits are registered. But, now i want to exclude users by group. The script should not run for bot, sysop and bureaucrates.

The thing is, looking at the code, i am unable to determine if it's possible to put an If block around it. Also, i'm not sure of the proper way to script the conditionnal part with wgUserGroups been an array. Would i need to scan the array with a For Each containing the If or run a check just before the If and store the result in a new boolean variable ?

I hope i'm not bothering... Any suggestion is welcomed. You can reply here or on my own talk page. Many thanks. TulipVorlax (talk) 01:26, 30 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey TulipVorlax, yes, I remember you! Glad to hear from you again :)
I've modified the code for this: [3]. I've put everything inside the closure (the function that executes itself), so the return statement will exit it. Walking through arrays needs to be done with a normal for, not a "for each", because in JS that walks through properties of objects (and it would iterate over the "length" property as well, which we don't want). In addition, I've explicitly set _paq to the window object so it stays global, since there are plans in future versions to make scripts in Common.js to be executed in a local scope, and the "var" statement would not be visible for the piwik script.
I've also moved trackPageView down, since at least in google analytics, it needs to be the last statement, so it uses all the variables added before (they are read sequentially). Well, double check if this change is not wrong!.
Best of luck for your wiki. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 09:49, 30 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have copied the snippet, but you made a tiny error, hardly more than a typo. Can you find it ? Ok, i'm telling...
You had sysop two times, so i replaced one with bot.
Anyway, as far as i can see, it work great. My visits are recorded in Piwik if i'm anon, and not anymore if i'm logged in. Reading the code, i understand how it work. Making it as a conditionnal exit of the function is really better than what i was thinking. I used a similar thing when i was younger and discovering programming with LogoWriter. It's been a long time...
By the way, i entered you nickname in google translate. I think their translation is not as good as it could be. But if i understand it correctly, it would mean « Power of Science ». Or is it « Power by Science » or something else ? 18:54, 30 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Erf, i though i was logged in... TulipVorlax (talk) 18:58, 30 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ah, yes, when I was testing I changed one of them to "*" to see that it worked and that I haven't broken anything obvious ;) but then I changed it back wrong. Yes, my nick can be translated as "Power of Science". That's a long story, though. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:40, 30 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Template:Git_file and diffusion[edit]

Hi, you switched {{git file}} back:

(Revert edit "First step of migration to Phabricator Diffusion, per phabricator:T101358", since this task is blocked by other unresolved tasks. Not all repos are in diffusion (currently failing at Manual:MWDumper)

phab:T101358 isn't blocked by anything relevant. I created its blocker phab:T110607 "redirect gerrit repo paths to diffusion callsigns" because developers unhappy with Module:Callsigns proposed that approach, but they haven't produced code yet. It just moves the problem to "Not all repos have correct redirects and/or not all repos are in diffusion".

MWDumper is in diffusion. Usually the issue is just a path issue in Module:Callsigns; in this case it had

["mwdumper"] = "MWDU";

when it should have been "mediawiki/tools/mwdumper". Easy fix so {{git file}} is back to using Diffusion. Probably any repo path in Module:Callsigns with a dash or with no slashes is a warning sign. is slow and unreliable and going away. I think we should leave {{git file}} using Diffusion in order to find and fix problems. (A test for gerrit repos not in Phabricator would be to get the full list of projects in gerrit, check if a mapping to call sign exists, browse to URL for the callsign in differential, check for 404 errors; but I don't know how to get started.)

Cheers, thanks for all your help with and on MediaWiki{.org}!
-- SPage (WMF) (talk) 01:55, 20 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, let's assume all usages of the template will point to repos that are already hosted on phabricator. Since you've implemented {{git file}} is now using callsings, you should probably resolve the task, but the blocker task is still open, which means it shouldn't be a dependency. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:00, 20 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The place to ask for support is Project:Support desk. About your error, that solution is usually not effective because the problem is that MediaWiki can't write to that directory. And that's all.

"width and height" en Manual:$wgFooterIcons[edit]


Soy bastante novato por aquí pero me he puesto a traducir la documentación al español, de momento no he investigado cómo funciona la extensión Translate ni mucho menos me he unido a, pero si pudieras hacer que esta cadena fuese "traducible", te lo agradecería. Ignoro si basta con ponerla entre las etiquetas translate y renumerar los índices, y ante la duda prefiero no meter la gamba ;)

Un saludo y gracias. --Tactica amiga (talk) 18:16, 4 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hola Tactica amiga. En primer lugar quiero agradecer tu esfuerzo pues he podido revisar varias de tus traducciones realizadas en páginas de mi lista de seguimiento y son francamente traducciones de gran calidad. ¡Buen trabajo!.
Sobre tu consulta, puedes agregar las etiquetas translate sobre cualquier texto para que se convierta en una unidad de traducción. Sin embargo, generalmente no debes tocar los índices numéricos que aparecen justo delante de cada unidad de traducción, y tampoco agregarlos manualmente, pues estos se generan automáticamente cuando un administrador de traducción aprueba los cambios en la página. Normalmente te bastará con marcar los textos con la etiqueta translate, y esperar a que un administrador de traducción revise la página y la apruebe, generando esos índices y quedando disponibles para traducir. En el caso concreto que comentas, acabo de hacer un cambio que quizá sea más claro, y es separarlos en líneas diferentes, pues son dos parámetros independientes, pero si quisieras prepararlo para traducción como estaba lo ideal sería poner una etiqueta translate únicamente en la palabra and (pues width y height no se deben traducir), o bien poner width y height en la etiqueta tvar por si algún idioma requiere otro tipo de formato de conjunción.

On translation of "Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manual"[edit]


I have been interested in translating "Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manual" to Japanese. But we cannot see all source text while translating. Perhaps the problem occurs because the text does not have enough "translation comments." ( It has only 8 translation comments, while it has 11 sections and 42 sub-sections.) You wrote "Please do not add manually those translation comments, that's not how it works. They're added automatically when the page is marked for translation)" while editing Extension:Scribunto/Lua reference manual. Perhaps you know how to add enough "translation comments." So please let me know how we can add enough "translation comments" to the source text.

Thank you!!ツバル (talk) 00:22, 14 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

They shouldn't be added manually to the source wikitext. Instead, you need to just use translate tags where appropriate, and then a translation admin would mark the page for translation (this is an action to do on the software). This automatically adds those translation comments, that will populate the list of available translation units on other languages. However, a translation admin already has raised an objection about making the whole page translatable as is, in Extension talk:Scribunto/Lua reference_manual#Translation of the reference manual, and proposed splitting it into several subpages, which would allow translations to be more effective and easier to review. So the only way to make this go forward is to make the split. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 13:10, 15 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Give us your feedback about some new features for the Flow:Extension[edit]

Hi Ciencia Al Poder,

Since you discussed about the Flow:Extension, I imagine you are using the Flow extension on your wiki.

To us, Flow discussion boards are very powerful. However, they can only be used on the discussion page of a specific page. This doesn't encourage collaboration because users usually visit the pages they watch and some discussions remains unanswered for days...

We believe a special page that gather all the discussions of the wiki will improve collaboration between users.

In the meantime, discussions boards are displayed in a separate tab. This can be confusing to newcomers. If the discussion boards were transcluded under the wiki page itself, it'd look like what users are used to see on other sites (like comments on a blog).

As Mediawiki developers, our team have apply for this Grant to develop such features.

If you think this project should be selected for a Project Grant, please add your name and rationale for endorsing at the bottom of this page :

Of course, other constructive feedback is welcome.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Indefinite block on an IP[edit]

Hi, I'm leaving this message to inform you that I've shortened the block on to a month, because it is an IP, not an actual user account. (And an IPv4 address, rather than an IPv6) Considering the duration of the ban and the fact that no-one using that IP will be able to do anything, I think that the ban is way to extensive.

Question about Grabbers[edit]


We (the admin team at a wiki we are attempting to move from Wikia) are currently trying to run the grabFiles.php script from Manual:Grabbers in order to move our files from Wikia. However, we are encountering errors running it, and since you seem to be active with the upkeep of the Manual page for Grabbers, we were wondering if we could ask you a question about running it.

We have cloned the grabbers through git, and used the command:

php grabFiles.php --url --wikia

to try and run the scripts. We've also used the command:

php grabFiles.php --url --wikia --username seewhati --password REDACTED --db bitnami_mediawiki --dbuser bn_mediawiki --dbpassword REDACTED

But both methods received the same error.

The error we received is:

Hi! You don't have to use the --db, --dbuser nor --dbpassword parameters. If you have a working LocalSettings.php, it should pick the correct settings from there. However, if you specify them, you should be aware that MySQL server has 2 ways to receive connections: Over a socket file, or a network port. The MySQL driver usually takes "localhost" as connecting through a socket, while "" means using the network interface. Check whether MySQL is using socket or network, and switch --db to if appropriate. If it's using the socket, you may need to modify the php.ini file to specify the correct location for the socket file. Cheers! --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 11:02, 18 November 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikidex Question[edit]

Hey, thanks for helping me fix some issues with my JoJo wiki the past few months. I saw that your Wikidex site has a unique image preview box that opens when you click an image. Does that come from this extension? My wiki has some issues with MediaViewer stretching images incorrectly so I think the one on your site looks a lot better and I was thinking to install it. It also seems like it may fix some issues I have with CloudFlare since CloudFlare can't tell when an image is replaced when I cache the images. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Vishkujo (talkcontribs) 07:26 20 dic 2019‎

Hi! The image preview box is done using a custom gadget (but can be used directly in the wiki's css/js too). See [4] and [5] for the code. The extension is effectively to fix issues with cached images, because it changes the URL of the images adding a timestamp of the last uploaded version, generating a new URL everytime a new version of the image is uploaded. This extension, however, requires custom rewrite rules on the web server (nginx example provided) to translate the generated URLs to the actual files on the server, so be sure to understand and adapt them to your needs if you want to use it. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 10:32, 20 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Christian FR (talk) 13:49, 13 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Wladek92: you should use the {{TNT}} template for transluding. When a page is marked for translation, it generates a "/en" subpage without all the translate markup, just like any other language. The TNT template takes care to transclude the "/en" subpage or the one corresponding to the language subpage. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 14:22, 13 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  1. He hecho una modificación a la página base y a mi ya me aparece la imagen en catalán del editor de mapas.
  2. Esto no es posible, ya que la página en inglés es la que indica las dimensiones. Las imágenes en inglés son algo diferentes, por eso la diferencia en proporción de aspecto o dimensiones. ¿Son capturas de los mismos lugares? Si ha cambiado el diseño de esos diálogos y menús, probablemente se tendrían que actualizar también las imágenes en inglés, y darles las dimensiones adecuadas.
  3. Esto es imposible salvo que se suba la misma imagen en inglés, debido a que el nombre base de la imagen viene de la página en inglés y no puedo hacer que en catalán u otros idiomas use un nombre diferente
Algunos temas tendrás que editarlos tú en la página en inglés o coordinarte con alguien que normalmente edite esas páginas en inglés para que haga los cambios en la página base y luego se repliquen a los demás idiomas. Saludos, --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 15:30, 7 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

[WMF Board of Trustees - Call for feedback: Community Board seats] Meetings with MediaWiki and Wikitech communities[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is organizing a call for feedback about community selection processes between February 1 and March 14. While the Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown about five times in the past ten years, the Board’s structure and processes have remained basically the same. As the Board is designed today, we have a problem of capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity. Our current processes to select individual volunteer and affiliate seats have some limitations. Direct elections tend to favor candidates from the leading language communities, regardless of how relevant their skills and experience might be in serving as a Board member, or contributing to the ability of the Board to perform its specific responsibilities. It is also a fact that the current processes have favored volunteers from North America and Western Europe. In the upcoming months, we need to renew three community seats and appoint three more community members in the new seats. This call for feedback is to see what processes can we all collaboratively design to promote and choose candidates that represent our movement and are prepared with the experience, skills, and insight to perform as trustees?

In this regard, two rounds of feedback meetings are being hosted to collect feedback from the technical communities in Wikimedia. Two rounds are being hosted with the same agenda, to accomodate people from various time zones across the globe. We will be discussing ideas proposed by the Board and the community to address the above mentioned problems. Please sign-up according to whatever is most comfortable to you. You are welcome to participate in both as well!

Also, please share this with other volunteers who might be interested in this. Let me know if you have any questions. KCVelaga (WMF), 14:37, 21 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Inuka Team: We need your help.[edit]

Hello Ciencia Al Poder,

Thank you so much for all the work you do in translating pages marked for translation. It is great to have you doing so much work to ensure that knowledge is available in other languages. Once again, we will need your help in translating the pages below to the language you know:

Please, don't feel pressured to finish all the translation; it is okay to translate some of the pages.

JS problems with pagename[edit]

Hola Jesús, may be you can help me; unfortunately I am not knowing JS.

In a script, there is the following sequence

c = mw.config.get([

followed later by using encodeURIComponent(c.wgPageName). But because the pagename contains a % sign which is not converted to %25 the access fails. Pleae help me, somehow to bypass that failure! Pls ping me commons:User:Sarang 06:29, 22 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello @Sarang: . encodeURIComponent works as expected for me. Debugging on the development console of my browser (hit F12):
> encodeURIComponent('%')
> encodeURIComponent('A%B')
> encodeURIComponent('%25')

Gracias Jesús, my problem occurred with File:10% Share of women in parliament, OWID.svg which became File:10%_Share_of_women_in_parliament,_OWID.svg instead of File:10%25_Share_of_women_in_parliament,_OWID.svg. May be it comes from the sequence % + _ ?
The script gets the same failure with e.g. File:10%_pie_chart.svg -- sarang사랑 12:03, 22 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Again, this works well on my developer console, tested on this page:
> c = mw.config.get([
> encodeURIComponent(c.wgPageName);
There must be some other processing after that, or encodeURIComponent is not being used. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 12:29, 22 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you, due to your testing it is not a JS problem - must be something else. I will try it otherwise -- sarang사랑 15:35, 22 June 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

How we will see unregistered users[edit]


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)

Support desk[edit]

Hello! I found your name on the Project:Support desk history.

I recently tried many times creating a new topic there and something really peculiar happens: As soon as I hover over the page my cursor shows the loading symbol even though nothing is loading. The page has already fully finished loading. I can't interact with it in any way because of that. This has never happened to me before. Any idea what might be happening? I'm really surprised. - Klein Muçi (talk) 02:34, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Came here to report the same thing. Same thing happens in firefox or edge or on my samsung. Tenbergen (talk) 04:47, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
This has been identified and reported in phabricator: phab:T299473. Hopefully they'll apply the fix in the following hours. Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 08:29, 19 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Should Manual:MWDumper be tagged as historical? (See: Template:Historical for its application of "obsolete")

If not, please explain. (E.g., if it actually works and is not obsoleted by an easier/faster method).

I look forward to your reply. The Transhumanist (talk) 08:44, 20 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hey Ciencia, I was wondering if you could answer something for me. I have slow internet, and every time I try to upload a large file (compared to my internet speed), it takes about a minute, then I get this message:

This site can’t be reached
The webpage at [ForcedToDeleteThis Special:Upload] might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. ERR_HTTP2_PING_FAILED

How can I overcome this? Can it be addressed by changing this setting(?):$wgHTTPTimeout --UltimateKuriboh (talk) 16:32, 7 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This can be a timeout on the webserver, but not anything controlled by MediaWiki. Look at your apache or nginx configuration (whatever your server is using), or even PHP. PHP has max_input_time. Apache has RequestReadTimeout Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 17:57, 7 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you very much. We found an alternative solution for this, in the end. --UltimateKuriboh (talk) 23:06, 7 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unblocking a possible candidate of outreach programs[edit]

Hello! This is regarding the following user block. This user is a possible candidate for outreach programs and reached out sharing the concern they are unable to create an account and use Phabricator because of the block. Unless there are any significant concerns, I kindly request you unblock this user so they can begin contributing. Thank you! Srish 18:25, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@SSethi (WMF) I've unblocked the range. However, due to constant abuse, it's likely the block will be applied again. Hopefully the user is able to create an account before this happens. The block shouldn't affect logged in users though. Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:08, 16 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Veo que sabes español (ni decir de tu nombre jaja), perfecto, quiero notifiarte sobre un "falso positivo" del filtro antiabusos 91, como ves, me falta traducir solo 1 texto de la página Extension:CodeMirror/es, en donde dice "boolean" en español es "booleano" (según Google translate), pero al momento de hacerlo me sale un filtro impidiéndome publicarlo, la descripción del filtro es "Translations: append gibberish", busqué en Special:AbuseFilter ese filtro y es el 91, ¿podrías modificarlo para que permita publicar las traducciones correctas?, saludos 16:38, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Por desgracia, la cantidad de vandalismo añadiendo basura a las traducciones es altísimo, y ese filtro tiene un bajísimo índice de falsos positivos. Por esta vez he añadido yo la traducción. Lo que te recomiendo es que crees una cuenta para crear traducciones. Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 16:53, 27 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Exención de bloqueo[edit]

Hola, ¿podrías por favor aplicarle una exención de bloqueo a otra IP...? 05:03, 20 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Podría, si supiera el contexto de esta petición, y cuál es la IP, pues ninguna edición desde tu IP ha sido parada por ningún filtro. Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 15:03, 21 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bueno, es para aplicarle a la IP, no sé que le pasa a Hasley, pero tanto esta IP como la otra ( son proxies abiertos de origen luxemburgués (puedes mirar en "geolocate"), no quería hacer esto pero uso proxy abierto, es para que yo pueda seguir editando aquí en Mediawiki traduciendo páginas sin usar VPN, te agradecería bastante de que lo hicieras, 19:54, 21 July 2023 (UTC) (edited at 20:00, 21 July 2023 (UTC))Reply[reply]
Yo no puedo hacer exención de bloqueos a IP, eso es algo que se otorga solo a ciertos grupos de usuarios (ver permiso ipblock-exempt en Special:ListGroupRights), lo cual implica que primero tienes que iniciar sesión o crear una cuenta (no puedo aplicar eso a una IP o usuario individual). Tampoco puedo desbloquear esas IPs, porque son bloqueos globales, y por el motivo del bloqueo se entiende que se usan para vandalismo. Lo único que puedes hacer es crearte una cuenta desde una IP que no esté bloqueada, y luego iniciar sesión aunque sea desde ese rango de IP bloqueado. Podrás editar normalmente, debido a que el bloqueo solo afecta a usuarios no registrados (impidiendo también crear cuentas, pero no editar desde existentes). Crear una cuenta no requiere email, no veo qué tanto problema hay con crear una cuenta de usuario para editar... Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 11:35, 22 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Bueno, tal vez no me expresé bien, te quería preguntar si podías desactivar el bloqueo global desde esta wiki para poder editar aquí, es decir, aplicarle una excepción local para el bloqueo global (que tan solo hay 1 registro, por cierto), el problema con Hasley es que no me permite ni apelar el bloqueo por medio de la página de discusión (es que ni siquiera tiene habilitado "anonymous only"), por lo que me veo obligado a usar VPN, no quiero ofender a Hasley, pero él es un tirano (repito, no quiero ofenderlo tampoco) porque, en vez de usar el tiempo para traducir las páginas Ayuda:Palabras mágicas y Ayuda:Extensión:ParserFunctions, la desperdicia bloqueándome (al menos actualmente), a pesar de que ha bloqueado el rango, mi IP no cambia de la terminación .62, además ha borrado Topic:Xl14dk87cqlqg0la, ahí había reportado un error cuando se mostraban los registros de una IP, y aunque se ha solucionado (no del todo), no supe porqué pasó eso, hace varios meses, había hecho ediciones totalmente legítimas (no en este proyecto), pero fueron revertidas, y Hasley, que no duda en bloquearme, no quiere ni hacerse responsable del daño, me tomaría mucho tiempo yo mismo traducir al 100% las 2 páginas, pero lo que me molesta es que, si soy bloqueado por un sysop (o hasta steward), este no me permita ni apelar el bloqueo de ninguna manera, y además no hace nada para traducir al español las páginas, incluso si consideran que el bloqueo completo hacia mí es justo, tampoco deberían humillarme, pero como no quieren dejar de hacerlo, tendré que seguir usando VPN, no debería, pero lo hago ya que ellos también no cumplen con las políticas, en cambio si cometo un pequeñísimo error me quieren sacar, aunque bueno, solo te pido en pocas palabras que, desactives el bloqueo global para poder traducir aquí, o como mínimo, traduzcas al 100% las 2 páginas, saludos 02:47, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Un bloqueo global no puede desactivarse localmente, ni tampoco al revés. Y los rangos de IP de proxy por donde se cometen abusos me parece bien que queden bloqueados. Como te comenté, puedes crearte un usuario sin usar la VPN, y luego editar con ese usuario desde la VPN. De la misma forma que estás editando en mi página de discusión revelando tu dirección IP, también puedes crear una cuenta de usuario. O editar la página que quieres editar desde esta misma dirección IP. Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 09:25, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Está bien, si no te parece buena idea, no desbloquees esa IP de aquí, pero ese usuario:hasley ya me tiene harto porque no me permite ni apelar el bloqueo, pero no se molesta ni en traducir las 2 páginas, definitivamente me quiere bloquear de todas formas, mi IP predeterminada ( está bloqueado de crear cuentas, además no está activado "sólo anónimos", y no quiere hacerse responsable del daño que hizo, espero que esta conversación termine porque ya parece foreo con más comentarios largos 19:11, 25 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]


It’s okay to have this as a warning, but it shouldn’t prevent saving; please uncheck that option. By nature of translations, it’s every now and then absolutely okay to not change anything even though the English message changed – singular/plural change in English, but the target language doesn’t differentiate them in the given context, a different wording in English that necessitates changes in most languages but not in that one, and so on. When working with natural language, like in translations, there is always an exception. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 13:36, 1 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I understand the problematic that you describe. However, as a regular patroller, I'm tired of anons wrongly unfuzzying translations. That type of vandalism is one of the most disruptive, because there's no way to revert that, except manually locating the message for comparison with the base language, check if the unfuzzy without changes is correct (and in 90% of cases it's obviously that it isn't because of formatting or length, the remaining 10% I can't tell because I don't know the language), and manually edit the translation adding the text !!FUZZY!!. The edit only affects anons and newbies with less than 20 edits, it doesn't affect regular translators. What's the issue if a fuzzy text can't be confirmed? The text appears with a redish background but with the translated text (not English). What's the issue with a wrongly confirmed text? The formatting may be wrong, links are missing or wiki markup is breaking something, and the unit is NOT marked for translation! I'm sorry but the problem you describe may be annoying 1% of the legitimate translators of this site, while reducing the effectiveness of that filter will annoy probably 20%-40% of the patrollers of this site. Also, looking at the stats of that filter, from the past month, 3 users were caught and retried saving the same edit. From those, 2 of them were completely wrong edits, and the last one looked legit (I manually unfuzzied it when I saw it) but (surprise!) another filter also caught the same anon trying to create a page with the same English text, so this was probably a coincidence and not a legit edit. If you really want to pursue this, feel free to propose it on the Project:Support desk, but I'll strong oppose to it with the reasons I've described. I hope you understand the situation. Cheers!
