MyWikis Hosting Service[edit]

Dear LegoFan4000,

I am reluctant to contact you, but need to ask you about the MyWikis hosting services. I have signed up for their services and have not had any response from them. Do you know if they are still in business?

If this message is inappropriate for you and your role in helping with MediaWiki, please forgive my ignorance.

I am not the person to ask. LegoFan4000 (talk) 19:48, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Translate tags for hub pages[edit]

Hi MacFan4000, maybe you can help me. I'm going to redesign some hub pages (user, admin, developer ...) to make them look a bit nicer and more modern with MediaWiki colors. I have a draft here: User:RichardHeigl/Draft. But this page has many translations and I don't know how rebuild this page without crashing the translation system. You're an expert for translation tags. Can you give me some hints how I can help myself? I've studied the help pages, but still didn't get it. :-( RichardHeigl (talk) 13:29, 31 July 2017 (UTC)

Basically just wrap anything that should be translatable (except templates), in Translate tags. Just be sure you leave any <!-T:x-> markers where they are and don’t try to add any yourself, they are managed by the translate system. For templates that are translatable, use {{TNT|Template name|template parameters}}. MacFan4000 (talk) 14:15, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for your quick answer. I'll try this way from bottom up. The problem is, that this portals will get a complete template for the page. That makes it tricky :-) RichardHeigl (talk) 14:27, 31 July 2017 (UTC)
At the draft page it works perfectly, if I try to copy it to the user hub page, I got one error message after another. I also can't do a rollback. Maybe you have more rights and you don't get these error messages which stopp me? RichardHeigl (talk) 08:25, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
I fixed it. MacFan4000 (talk) 11:22, 1 August 2017 (UTC)
Hero!! Great! RichardHeigl (talk) 11:24, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Hey! User:Elitre (WMF)/test doesn't need to be translated, do I need to do something about that? Thanks. --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 17:01, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

I removed it from translation. I was trying to clean up the list of pages that are,t marked for translation. MacFan4000 (talk) 17:03, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Page moves and Structured Discussion[edit]

Hi. Please discuss page-moves before making them, if there's any chance that someone might object. In this case, the extension is in CamelCase because it's easier for developers if software names avoid spaces. The documentation and user-facing name of the feature are not CamelCase.

Additionally, there are problems with moving pages that have "translated subpages" - Those need to be done very carefully, one at a time, starting with subpages first - otherwise all the translations get left behind. I will attempt to repair the damage, but please ask for input and/or advice, before doing things like this in the future. Thank you. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:45, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Phabricator Herald rule[edit]

Hi, could you please disable phab:H340? See Phabricator/Help/Herald Rules: Instead of rules like "Subscribe me to task if it is associated with project Foo", watch the project. Thanks! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 01:46, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

@MacFan4000: No reply within three weeks, so I deleted phab:H340. For the records, the Herald rule was: "If Project tags include any of #Tool-Zppixbot, #User-MacFan4000, #Refreshed, then take these actions every time this rule matches: Add @MacFan4000 as subscriber." --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 10:30, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
A lot of people have rules like that, not just me. MacFan4000 (talk) 16:28, 29 May 2020 (UTC)
