Copy of User:Premeditated/oauth

Hi! I see that you have deleted my sandbox. Is it passible to get a copy of what i wrote or to restore the revision for a short time? I'm planning on using some of it on OAuth/For Developers.

Clump (talkcontribs)

Sure; I've restored temporarily. (But what does spotify have to do with it?)

Premeditated (talkcontribs)

Thanks, I wrote something similar for Spotify.

I'm really tempted to nuke the contribs of and block Special:Contributions/BetterMediaFactor without talk page access for using MediaWiki.org as their own personal microblogging service (edit: especially after Topic:Vrgakmntyxqeihac), but I'd like a second opinion first since it's not obvious vandalism or spamming. Can you take a look and see if you'd agree with those actions?

Clump (talkcontribs)

I agree very much.

Summary by Clump

User created a new user page anyway.

Tlgonline (talkcontribs)

My user page was summarily deleted. It simply stated the truth: "I manage an installation of Mediawiki at <redacted>." I did not link to my website. The statement tells who I am and why I am interested in improving the software. Thanks

Jackmcbarn (talkcontribs)

This seems borderline to me. I wouldn't have deleted it myself, but it's not clear-cut enough for me to unilaterally undelete it given that Clump deleted it. Your user page wasn't completely unreasonable/spammy, but at the same time, you haven't really done anything else significant here, and user pages are meant to be for contributors here to share with each other, not just a generic Facebook-like thing for anyone.

{{Screencast requested}} is needed when a newbie cannot understand long and long lines of text.

Take into account than some pages are also for Wikipedia and other sister projects and its newbies.

I need a screencast sometime to understand how to use some features of MediaWiki, employed also in Wikipedia and other projects.

Clump (talkcontribs)

If it's actually somehow likely someone might actually create a screencast for a specific page it may make sense, but otherwise, which I suspect is most cases, peppering pages with that will just be annoying. Please avoid creating 1-item categories.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

The category, as in Wikipedia, is for the page where people asked for screenshots, screencast and similar . How can I ask for a screencast in the help:notifications or similar name page?. BoldLuis (talk) 22:08, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Clump (talkcontribs)

On wikipedia that project seems to have never really gone anywhere, with little activity since 2010. You seem to have figured out a way to ask here.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

Do not worry. A Mediawiki:Helper that said to me that is going to do his best to create a screencast video about the topic for newbies. BoldLuis (talk) 22:08, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

I fail to see how a broken edit to an (effectively) undocumented template on another wiki was an improvement.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

Documentation can be done using {{Wikipedia doc}} (soon global template documentation is going to be more usual). It links to a page where you can find the word and understand how it is used. It could be improved. But before any effort. Are you ready for change to improve Mediawiki?. I could do my best (and you also). BoldLuis (talk) 22:13, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

Pppery (talkcontribs)

Just copy the documentation from Wikipedia (and, from my experience, remove paragraphs of Wikipedia-specific information) instead of directing users to another wiki.

BoldLuis (talkcontribs)

I would prefer to use a global template. Easier, more useful and quicklier. If the user accounts are global, user templates woud be global, also.
