Ciao. Purtroppo con il mio inglese non riesco a comporre frasi molto complesse. Te lo spiego in Italiano: quando incollo una stringa di Wikitesto (vedi per esempio la stringa da copiare per le abilitazioni degli autoverificati su Wikipedia) me la trasforma in Stringa di Wikitesto>. Questa è una cosa che mi da molti problemi e mi fa perdere molto tempo, purtroppo. Quindi sono stato costretto a disattivare. È molto simile al caso che mi hai riportato a quanto vedo.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Una cosa che puoi fare al momento per aggirare la difficoltà è tenerti queste stringhe che copi e incolli in una sandbox o simile precedute dai tag nowiki (esempio). In questo modo il codice che andrai a ricopiare dalla modalità lettura non sarà sottoposto ad alcuna conversione.

Dear Elitre. I'm writing you this as I saw you updating the discussion page on the Egyptian Wikipedia.

I really need to know how to implement the last good edit to the Egyptian Wikipedia, because it is not as monitored in the past and nearly half of its articles have been vandalized and still left as they are.

At least tell me where to post that question and implement that. Thanks. --Mahmudmasri (talk) 16:44, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

If I understand your request correctly, you'd want some kind of "Flagged Revisions" enabled. However, one year ago the decision was taken not to enable that extension on new wikis anymore. The code is old and unmaintained, and it seems to be damaging communities more than it benefits them. I would recommend instead gathering a small but motivated group of users and look into the possibilities that ORES offers - basically, have artificial intelligence assist you in dealing with vandalism! You can leave a message in the talk page there, and someone will be able to offer more help.

Thanks for replying. The wiki is 10 years old, though. It's not new.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

New means it didn't have it before.

Assistance request: Enabling citoid templates on Wikiversity

Evolution and evolvability (talkcontribs)

Hi, I'm trying to enable Citoid templates on Wikiversity (discussion). The configuration process is slightly beyond my technical expertise. Would someone from Wikipedia be able to help me to make sure I don't break anything? Secifically, I need to enable the ability to autogenerate the {{cite journal}} from a DOI and PMID code.

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Hello! Thank you for leaving feedback on the Wikistats - Future per report and Feedback/Round 1 pages. We used it to build an interactive prototype of the next version of Wikistats. We're now looking for feedback on the visual design, and we'd love your input. We have some follow-up questions but mostly an open discussion at Request for feedback/Round2 (if you prefer email, write to milimetric@wikimedia.org and please include "Wikistats Design" in the subject). Please comment by Monday, May 1st so we can include your feedback into the first release of Wikistats 2.0. Thank you very much!

Hello. We have finished the translation. Is it possible for you to replace the incomplete translation of the newsletter that was delivered to the Greek Wikipedia Forum on 12 May? Its title is "Editing News #1—2017". Thank you!--Dipa1965 (talk) 22:12, 13 May 2017 (UTC)

Now at Topic:Tn4q0l4fzgoe63o8. Thanks.

Brynda1231 (talkcontribs)

Something unusual is happening at the All logs history. Time to check there.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Brynda1231, can you be more specific? What should I be seeing there? Thanks.

Brynda1231 (talkcontribs)

Account creation log.

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Again, what about it? Project:Current_issues has nothing and it's probably the best place to formulate a description of any issues. (Automatic creation of account shouldn't be one, if that's what you actually mean.)

Brynda1231 (talkcontribs)

Many accounts created in 1 minute ans some created by others

Elitre (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I don't know if that is normal or not, hence why I suggested a different venue for this conversation. I'll open that thread for you to save time.

Brynda1231 (talkcontribs)

And some of those usernames are spam or profane and should be blocked.
