Marking "MediaWiki 1.31" for translation

4
Ochaochaocha3 (talkcontribs)

Hello. Could you please mark the recent revision of MediaWiki 1.31 for translation? I'm translating it into Japanese, but I can translate only a small part of the page because translate tags in the marked revision don't contain the whole text.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Done, though it's quite messy. :-(

Ochaochaocha3 (talkcontribs)

Hello. Could you please do this again? This page seemed to be stable, so I added translate tags to all list items.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Done!

Reorganizing the 2017 WikiEditor Workboard at the Phabricator

George Ho (talkcontribs)

Hello again. Should I create a task requesting reorganization of the 2017 WikiEditor Workboard at the Phabricator? There are 100+ tasks in the Backlog column and no other columns at the moment.

Deskana (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hi @George Ho. That workboard isn't actually used for anything; all the work for the 2017 Wikitext Editor workboard is tracked inside the VisualEditor and VisualEditor (Current work) projects. I should probably turn the workboard off.

George Ho (talkcontribs)

What do you mean "turn the workboard off", @Deskana (WMF):? Do you mean merging the tasks into the "VisualEditor" project? If so, the VisualEditor Workboard is filled with too many tasks. Merging two Projects into one would need more reorganization; otherwise, how else can the 2017 WE be tracked? If not, what else do you mean?

Ok, no problem. They will deploy 100% because is merged.

Non-binary current edit

Summary by Jdforrester (WMF)

Interesting idea; let's follow-up on Phabricator!

Kjerish (talkcontribs)

Instead of a user edit being either current or not current, what if there was an indicator on the contribution page that indicated how many bytes have changed since an edit? Would that have an effect on performance? That would be very useful, and interesting to see the numbers get larger as you scroll back!

Whatamidoing (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the picture. You're not looking for the number of bytes changed by that edit; you're looking for the net number of bytes changed since that edit – which could mean processing a very short list of subsequent edits, or, in some cases, could mean processing thousands of edits. There is some potential for significant performance issues in the latter.

Jdforrester might have different advice, but my suggestion to you is to write up a description of what you want to see on phab:. How to report a bug explains how to do it. You might additionally make a note on your calendar to look for the next m:Community wishlist survey, which should start in ~10 months. You could suggest this idea there, too.

Hello, happy New year ))) I have 2 accounts. I scored a password - user:Bari srtik, one of the stewards said that can help system administrators. On the personal page of Bari srtik, it is written that this is my page. Please help me...Ankax Hayastan (talk) 10:10, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

WhatamIdoing (talkcontribs)

What is the practical problem? If you don't want to use two accounts, then simply stop using the second account. (Some people want two accounts. For example, they use one account on their own computers, and another when they visit an internet café.)

Ankax Hayastan (talkcontribs)

You did not understand me

Ankax Hayastan (talkcontribs)

I want to use my second account. But I don't remember the password. I want to get a new password, but I haven't used email.

Ankax Hayastan (talkcontribs)

I want to use my two accounts

Ankax Hayastan (talkcontribs)

I am don't good speak English.

WhatamIdoing (talkcontribs)

Without an e-mail address, password resets are almost impossible. Unless a system administrator has met you in person, or knew that you had both accounts before the password is lost, then it cannot be done.

User:Yurik could probably explain this.

Alsee (talkcontribs)

I noticed this thread because I had this page watchlisted from an old discussion.

Userpage m:User:Bari_srtik has not been edited by anyone except the owner (history link). The account has no contributions outside it's own userpage and usertalk page (contrib link). The user page says:

Hello, I am Bari srtik (nickname), and I am volunteer in wiki projects. My first user's page - Ankax Hayastan (6AND5).

The grammar is odd, but the meaning is clear. I have no idea what the (6AND5) part is about, but assuming there are no other accounts resembling "Ankax Hayastan" then it seems reasonable to reset Bari_srtik to it's asserted owner. However I couldn't find an explicit policy on reset requests.

On the personal page of the second account says that my account.

Engaging with and understood by the community

Rogol Domedonfors (talkcontribs)

It would cost you nothing to respond to sensible suggestions and requests from the community with helpful and informative responses, rather than amusing yourself with unhelpful flippancies. You are clearly capable of understanding and responding in a positive and constructive fashion if you so choose – please try to do so regularly in future, you might even find that you come to enjoy it.

[Moved] Enabling "Single Edit Tab" mode on a third party installation

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Originally posted elsewhere by @Rozpalacz:

Single edit tab is close, but I still have a problem. I have fresh installation MW 1.27 with Visual Editor, I'm logged in as Admnistrator but I can not see option Editing mode: in Preferences. How can I enable this option? I would like to get Visual Editor as a default editor. Thanks.

Jdforrester (WMF) (talkcontribs)

Hey. That feature was added about a year ago in 748db015 to fix T58337, and made it into MW 1.27; the option you mention sets the visualeditor-tabs preference and should be available, as long as you set $wgVisualEditorUseSingleEditTab to true in your LocalSettings.php file. If that's the case, did you also set visualeditor-enable to 1 there too?
