Signing using Visual Editor

Hi Krenair. Please help test template VESign. Edit a page using Visual Editor. Add template VESign. Hit Insert template. Click on the puzzle piece. Add four tildes in the field overwriting the gray four tildes you already see. Apply changes. Save page. Retry. Document your findings. Please let me know your experiences (thoughts, feelings). What would be proper name for the template? What would be a proper name for the single parameter? Can you suggest any other improvement?

Ad Huikeshoven (talk)15:06, 13 July 2014

Hey. Have you seen bugzilla:51154? I think a better way to do this (instead of using a template) would be to write a JS plugin to VisualEditor that inserts the signature. Also, I changed the 'default' part of the TemplateData because it doesn't actually default to anything (just blank).

Krenair (talkcontribs)15:12, 13 July 2014

I have read the bug now. Sorry I don't have any experience with JS. I have updated template VESign and tested again on user:Ad Huikeshoven/test. It is true that the default value in templatedata is displyed grayish in the dialog and those four tildes didn't write after hitting Insert template. Yes you have to manually insert four tildes in the parameter field. Those will display black in the dialog. Then after hitting Insert template you have entered four tildes. Which will render to your signature after hitting save. VE allows users to enter wiki syntax in template fields.

Ad Huikeshoven (talk)16:22, 13 July 2014

Can you please change the bad wording of my initial question? I'm afraid the same two users will continue reverting everything I do just because it's me. I really don't understand why they are insisting on keeping the question in that exact wording. Why am I not allowed to make it better if I was allowed to add it in the first place? Your addition was the first that actually added value to the page. It makes no sense to ask if "wikitext will be removed from the system" like Jorm wrote. It was not my intention to ask this. Basically I wanted to add the same question as in en:WP:Flow/FAQ: What editors will Flow support? Which editor will be the default? How will switching between editors work?

TMg21:10, 20 August 2013

*Most* of their reverts were okay and I would do the same.

I might add some more text to it, but really what I've done so far to the page was to attempt to address some of your concerns in a way that would not be an issue to other people.

I don't really know how switching between editors will work. But I understand, from the post that you quoted, that Flow will support VE (as a default) and a wikitext editor (potentially only accepting a subset of wikitext... I'd be interested in finding out why this might happen).

Krenair (talkcontribs)21:42, 20 August 2013

Okay, so I talked to Jorm and it seems that to switch editors, there will be a preference, and possibly a button to toggle in situ.

The wikitext editor may only accept a subset of wikitext because of the (currently limited) capabilities of Parsoid in comparison to the PHP parser. This is to ensure that other editors can still edit your message using VisualEditor (where some tricks might not necessarily be understood).

Krenair (talkcontribs)21:59, 20 August 2013

I know this. I tried to add this exact answer to the page but it was deleted and replaced with the same nonsense as before.

I still don't understand in which way "Flow is replacing talk pages" is an answer to the question "What editor(s) will Flow support" (which would be a better wording for the question, for example). It's like telling the consumers cold refreshments are not replaced because we are replacing ice cream with vegetables. Could you please clarify the question and/or the weird "see above" answer?

Request for permissions

Oh, sorry about that. I didn't realize I was leaving my comment on Rschen's page. Fixed now, thanks!

Also, I just clicked HackPad to see what that functionality was like and it automatically deleted your page. I undid that obviously. Sorry, but that's what happened. Cheers.

Hello, I'm still interested in this request. It has been 4 weeks and there hasn't been any response. Could you take a look at it? I think I could help out with spammers and vandalism. Thanks.

Unified Login

Hi Domotiki!

I'm trying to unify my account. Not Tarodnet (it was created to discuss with you), but Tarod.

Tarod is my username used in wikipedia and its different sites, except

I've checked the user Tarod in this site, and the user hasn't any contributions, so I suppose it is possible to change that username so I can unify my account.

I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask about this issue. Could you help me anyway?

Thank you very much.

Tarodnet (talk)15:25, 4 January 2013

The proper page is Project:Requests but I don't think it's really necessary, so YesYDone. You can create an account called Tarod here now. :)

Krenair (talkcontribs)15:33, 4 January 2013

You're the best. Thank you very much! :)

Picture site selection for different languages

Hello Krenair, I do not know what you have a problem. The site selection for different languages ​​can not only be something positive. Or are you jealous that you is not remembered something good.

Gieselkalk (talk)20:50, 24 July 2012

They did not seem to be within's scope.

Krenair (talkcontribs)20:54, 24 July 2012

Speedy or Delete?

Hi Krenair. Regarding this page and this one, are you sure that shouldn't be deleted as speedy deletions? Actually I wasn't sure too, but seeing their CA and their global contribs, maybe their aim was clever ;). Bye,

Frigotoni ...i'm here;13:28, 16 May 2012

Obviously if the page is out of scope it can be speedily deleted. However I wasn't sure if they were out of scope or not, so I changed the template to normal deletion.

Krenair (talkcontribs)15:04, 16 May 2012

Yes, I know. If it's so, I've also tagged this page with the delete one. However, their user pages (of all these users) are projected in a similar way, so it might be a misuse of multiple accounts.

Frigotoni ...i'm here;17:23, 16 May 2012

Hei Krenair, see User talk:Geitost#Editor rights: The bug fix with reviewing is getting live in a few weeks, and hopefully, reviewing will work then again. Greetings

Linking to a raw file on Git

Heiya Krenair, you seem to know your way around in Git. In case I want to link to a raw file to display on screen which is in the root directory of an extension I do e.g.;a=blob_plain;f=INSTALL;hb=HEAD This is understood and expected. What do I have to do if a file is in a subdirectory of the extension, e.g. /includes/Parameter.php So far I managed only to trigger a direct download? However most files are in subdirectories, so it would be cool to know how to do it. I currently have no idea how. O_o May you help? Cheers

[[kgh]] (talk)21:58, 5 May 2012

Hi. I definitely know my way around Gitweb and Gerrit as well to some extent. Just change "f=INSTALL" to "f=/includes/Parameter.php". Unfortunately because the file type is PHP it'll try to download the file instead of display it. This happens even if the file is in the root directory, and I'm not sure if there's a way to force display on screen.

What you might like to do instead is this:;a=blob;f=includes/Parameter.php;hb=HEAD

Krenair (talkcontribs)22:03, 5 May 2012

:) Yeah, forcing php files to display on screen without getting a download was basically what I was trying to achieve. So I guess it is not possible right now. :( Hopefully on day ... I thought about your alternative proposal, too. I figured that it is not very elegant in case you want to link to a file for documentation purposes, since you get to read revision comments etc. Still it is better than nothing, isn't it?!. Thank you very much for your help and for fixing the link on my talk page. :) Cheers

[[kgh]] (talk)22:15, 5 May 2012


Hey Krenair. Sorry, I made a mistake in the month. I thought this deletion request has been made more than 30 days ago.

Tim (SVG)16:53, 5 May 2012

It's fine. Thanks for telling me what you meant.

Krenair (talkcontribs)17:34, 5 May 2012

An advice?

Hi Kreniar. I apologize for the inconvenience, I see your advice towards me just now. Well, I'm used to tagging test pages with Delete template just because I use this tool. So I leave that template on every test pages/vandalisms pages etc. globally. But if you think it's better to use Speedy template here insted Delete one in those cases, I'll do it.

Frigotoni ...i'm here;15:34, 24 April 2012

It's okay, I've noticed quite a few people tagging such pages with delete instead of speedy.

Speedy is used for things that can be deleted by an admin on the spot - spam, out of project scope, test pages, etc. Delete is used for pretty much anything else.

Krenair (talkcontribs)15:58, 24 April 2012

Gitweb links

Shouldn't link changes like [1] be done by bot on all pages?

Nemo16:21, 9 April 2012

Could be. Not required to be though, as it was done manually.

Krenair (talkcontribs)16:27, 9 April 2012


Hello Krenair, can you please explain your revert to me? I’m not sure how it is in English, but in German we’re using the normal apostrophe which is ’ and not ' (which isn’t an apostrophe but often used as such instead, if there’s no apostrophe on the tastature – but it shall not be used in German Wikipedia articles since it’s not the right sign – typography). That’s why I changed the apostrophes here also. I just saw into the English article w:Apostrophe where I’m also told that this is the (correct) apostrophe. Maybe there are other conventions about that in English Wikipedia or here that I don’t know? I just don’t understand by now, what is wrong with using the right apostrophes.

By the way, the Quotation marks are also wrong most of the time I see them here. Normally, in English texts, they are “…” and not "…", but they also are often used as "…" which I don’t understand. If I had found the correct English quotation marks on my tastature at once, I would have change that, too. What do you think should be used normally? And you also reverted the wrong sentence again to „We a have lot of work to do“ which I can’t understand that way – what shall this mean? Kind regards, Geitost diskusjon 23:48, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

Geitost diskusjon23:48, 18 March 2012

I've only ever really considered "'" and '"' to be apostrophes. I rarely see people using "’", "“", or "”". Maybe it's a non-English keyboard thing.

That said you're probably right, so I've reverted it to your revision. :)

Krenair (talkcontribs)23:57, 18 March 2012

Ok. I asked you because I’m really uncertain about the English conventions at Wikipedia or here about which signs shall be used or which ones shouldn’t (and perhaps only are used by habit or because they are easier to reach). ;-) I’m also seeing very often the ' and " in English texts and I’m always wondering about that. (I thought you perhaps might know more about such conventions.) ;-) Maybe, there’s a guide for it somewhere which I don’t know by now. I only know that these signs are also often used in German texts, but the conventions say that they shouldn’t, so a lot of people change them to the right signs. :-) Maybe, someone comes along and tells us more. :-)
