Hello. There is an RFC for the removal of inactive bureaucrats and interface administrators. As this might affect you, your input at the RfC is greatly appreciated.

Traduction des pages d'aide MW

Kikuyu3 (talkcontribs)


Je me suis mis en tête de comprendre comment fonctionne wikipedia (le wiki), d'où visite à MW, et de proche en proche j'ai commencé à traduire les pages d'aide (enfin une certaine page, dont tu es le créateur :

. Donc c'est de ta faute. Donc tu es volontaire pour me répondre (c'est où les smileys, sur Flow ?). Je m'acharne depuis ce matin à faire apparaître à l'écran les derniers alinéas traduits hier. J'y avais mis le texte original (en anglais des messages d'erreurs, avec entre () la traduc française, pour d'une part que l'on comprenne ce que dit le message en anglais, ce qui n'est pas une évidence, même pour certains informaticiens, même jeunes, et d'autre part en vue de la traduction future des messages affichés eux-mêmes. Or non seulement la traduc des messages n'apparaît pas, mais la traduc des "kesskifofère" qui suivent reste planquée dans les limbes, et c'est peu dire que je me suis acharné. Tu n'aurais pas un petit miracle à m'offrir dans ton grand sac à trésors ?

Au passage, si je ne craignais d'abuser, je te suggérerais une relecture de mes sévices, vu qu'en informatique, je ne suis expert que pour planter les ordis,. Il y a des traducs sur lesquels j'ai des doutes ... inventifs (le nommage de tubes, ça existe ?)

Cordialement, et Hop !

PS : pour ton info, sur ta PU, dans la phrase "You can find ...", le lien vers "...the French Wikipedia" envoie vers l'article "Accueil" de FR, au lieu (probablement) de la page d'accueil de la version française.

PPS : merci pour ton travail de moine sur ce projet, et les autres.

Configure $wgConfigureAdditionalExtensions

Ofbeaton (talkcontribs)

I'm a newbie extension author here... am I to understand that without changing any files in Configure I can add Configure support for my extension using $wgConfigureAdditionalExtensions? Is this the prefered way to do it? Where should I be putting this in my extension.php file? In the constructor for my extension class? Will you load it, otherwise how would it ever get called? Am I forced to use a init function instead?

The first part is correct. You need to define your extension in $wgConfigureAdditionalExtensions after including the Configure extension itself but before calling efConfigureSetup() since the inclusion of the extensions sets that variable to an empty array (to prevent register globals vulnerability) and it will be used in efConfigureSetup(). The best way to do this is to put it directly in LocalSettings.php between the two statements described just above.

Ofbeaton (talkcontribs)

Thanks, that did the trick. I should of been able to figure that out >< More importantly I've put this information in my FAQ for my extension so others will hopefully run into it. Thanks for the extension!

Hi there. I'm not sure I understand this change, as it almost emptied the page. Can you please explain? Thanks!

IAlex (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the notice. There was indeed something broken in the script, which is now fixed.

An important message about renaming users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Dear User talk:IAlex/An important message about renaming users,

I am cross-posting this message to many places to make sure everyone who is a Wikimedia Foundation project bureaucrat receives a copy. If you are a bureaucrat on more than one wiki, you will receive this message on each wiki where you are a bureaucrat.

As you may have seen, work to perform the Wikimedia cluster-wide single-user login finalisation (SUL finalisation) is taking place. This may potentially effect your work as a local bureaucrat, so please read this message carefully.

Why is this happening? As currently stated at the global rename policy, a global account is a name linked to a single user across all Wikimedia wikis, with local accounts unified into a global collection. Previously, the only way to rename a unified user was to individually rename every local account. This was an extremely difficult and time-consuming task, both for stewards and for the users who had to initiate discussions with local bureaucrats (who perform local renames to date) on every wiki with available bureaucrats. The process took a very long time, since it's difficult to coordinate crosswiki renames among the projects and bureaucrats involved in individual projects.

The SUL finalisation will be taking place in stages, and one of the first stages will be to turn off Special:RenameUser locally. This needs to be done as soon as possible, on advice and input from Stewards and engineers for the project, so that no more accounts that are unified globally are broken by a local rename to usurp the global account name. Once this is done, the process of global name unification can begin. The date that has been chosen to turn off local renaming and shift over to entirely global renaming is 15 September 2014, or three weeks time from now. In place of local renames is a new tool, hosted on Meta, that allows for global renames on all wikis where the name is not registered will be deployed.

Your help is greatly needed during this process and going forward in the future if, as a bureaucrat, renaming users is something that you do or have an interest in participating in. The Wikimedia Stewards have set up, and are in charge of, a new community usergroup on Meta in order to share knowledge and work together on renaming accounts globally, called Global renamers. Stewards are in the process of creating documentation to help global renamers to get used to and learn more about global accounts and tools and Meta in general as well as the application format. As transparency is a valuable thing in our movement, the Stewards would like to have at least a brief public application period. If you are an experienced renamer as a local bureaucrat, the process of becoming a part of this group could take as little as 24 hours to complete. You, as a bureaucrat, should be able to apply for the global renamer right on Meta by the requests for global permissions page on 1 September, a week from now.

In the meantime please update your local page where users request renames to reflect this move to global renaming, and if there is a rename request and the user has edited more than one wiki with the name, please send them to the request page for a global rename.

Stewards greatly appreciate the trust local communities have in you and want to make this transition as easy as possible so that the two groups can start working together to ensure everyone has a unique login identity across Wikimedia projects. Completing this project will allow for long-desired universal tools like a global watchlist, global notifications and many, many more features to make work easier.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns about the SUL finalisation, read over the Help:Unified login page on Meta and leave a note on the talk page there, or on the talk page for global renamers. You can also contact me on my talk page on meta if you would like. I'm working as a bridge between Wikimedia Foundation Engineering and Product Development, Wikimedia Stewards, and you to assure that SUL finalisation goes as smoothly as possible; this is a community-driven process and I encourage you to work with the Stewards for our communities.

Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) talk 18:24, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Harmonia Amanda, contributrice de la Wikipédia francophone, a découvert récemment le mot-clef présent sur quelques redirections.

Nous avons un peu regardé à quoi cela correspondait, et j'ai trouvé la tâche ad hoc de correction des doubles redirections.

Manual:$wgFixDoubleRedirects contient la remarque Tends to conflict with page move vandalism, use only on a private wiki.. Nous nous demandions quel pouvait être un exemple de scénario d'un tel vandalisme ?

IAlex (talkcontribs)


Tu peux regarder le , avec un lien vers ce qu'un des administrateurs a du faire pour révoquer les contributions du script qui corrige les double redirections (dans le champ « URL »).

Le principal problème si mes souvenirs sont bons, est que quand un vandale renomme une page vers un nom obscène ou injurieux, toutes les pages qui ont un lien vers celle-ci vont alors aussi avoir le nouveau nom de la page renommée dans le titre et que suivant comment est effectué le renommage en sens inverse, tu dois révoquer toi-même les modifications du script.

J'espère que cela a répondu à ta question.
