Removal of wfgeoLink function hook from the MapSources extension

2
RolandUnger (talkcontribs)

Hallo Max,

last night the wfgeoLink function hook was removed from the MapSources extension. Why you did this and why nobody told this to the community? On the German Wikivoyage #geolink is used for about 30.000 times.

This hook has nothing to do with the slippymap.

You did us a disservice.

By the way I am one of the former authors of this extension. But nobody made my a subscriber.

Replied at phab:T149288.

Unbelievable, as a new user to media wiki I am really put-off with this product. To delete pages on wim - without informing the contributor in any way before hand is un precendented and completely rediculous. This is truly a first. I will never use this product again, and I will go out of my way to ensure that people avoid using it at all costs.

Have you seen the warning "Attention visitors: This site is for documentation on the MediaWiki software. If you are trying to add a page to your company's internal wiki site, you're in the wrong place. Just hit "back" in your browser until you find yourself back home." at the top of edit page?

SWEngineering (talkcontribs)

I am not questioning your reason fbehind deleting my page. I am questioning your process. Have you no notion of consideration? Is sending a warning message a difficult undertaking for you? Are you so irritated with your life that you feel the need to detriment others? My advice is to take a vacation, find a new line of work, or see a therapist. You strike my as a very angry person.

MaxSem (talkcontribs)

Looks like you need to take a vacation too:)

Guaka (talkcontribs)

I have to agree with SWEngineering here.

I think you should really stop deleting pages this fast and put a template first!

Hey Max. Having run into Bugzilla 49893 (the index problem with GeoData), I was wondering if there's any timetable for fixing it? I can get round the way it makes gslimit useless (or rather, a big over-estimate of the actual number of results returned), but it seems to drop results which makes GeoData near-useless for my purposes. If there's a fix on the horizon then I don't mind waiting, but otherwise I'm going to have to start looking at other ways of extracting a comprehensive list of geotagged articles, like hacking through an entire database dump. (ugg!) Cheers.

MaxSem (talkcontribs)

This depends on switch of all wikis to ElasticsearchCirrusSearch, so probably a matter of weeks or a couple of months. Meanwhile, I manually perform a full reindex from time to time to reduce the impact of this bug.

Hi, MaxSem, and sorry if this is the wrong place to ask. Two weeks ago I added the {{#coordinates:}} tag to the main coordinates template on nnwiki. However, no pages are available via the API yet. See for example this one versus this one; they are both for the same coordinates, and many of the pages in the nowiki results exist in nnwiki, but none show up in the API. Did I do anything wrong, or miss some steps or something?

Jon Harald Søby (talkcontribs)

Aaaah, nevermind, I made a mistake with primary/secondary in the template. I forgot to translate one parameter from Bokmål to Nynorsk. I have fixed it myself. Thanks anyways. :-)

MaxSem (talkcontribs)

Yeah, I see in the DB that you have 44542 geo tags in the DB now, 40195 of them primary.

Здравствуйте. Можно мне флаг автопатрулируемого? Без него неудобно (например, мою правку на странице Manual:Installation requirements никто не досмотрел с 6 сентября). Редактор я опытный, более двух тысяч правок на Викии. Wassily Steik 14:27, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

MaxSem (talkcontribs)

Hi! Опыт редактирования вики ≠ опыту администрирования, поэтому я бы хотел увидеть побольше правок в документации, прежде чем присваивать флаг, сорри. И я уже попадал когда-то в неприятную ситуацию с запросами в личное обсуждение, так что флаги присваиваю только по запросам в Project:Requests.

Edward Chernenko~mediawikiwiki (talkcontribs)

Ладно. Я напишу на Project:Requests чуть позже, если буду участвовать здесь более активно. Пока мало времени. Спасибо. Wassily Steik 04:53, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi Max,

I have a problem with GeoData,seems not to create gt_spatial index. Ho trovato una risoluzione al bug qui Bug 62127, but it is not explained how to set up the tables. I tried, however, to create them. Could you tell me if the settings are correct or if I need to change something?

Below I paste the links that show the pictures of my settings:

Thanks for your patience!

I apologize, I wrote a sentence in Italian: "Ho trovato una soluzione al bug qui" the English translation is: "I found a solution to the bug here".

I write a reply because it does not give me the ability to edit. Thanks again for your patience

hello, could you tell me how to edit mobile version for english wikipedia for example?. i mean if i want to add something to mobile version how can i add it?. thanks.

MaxSem (talkcontribs)

There is no "mobile version" per se, there is a mobile site that displays the same content as the desktop one. To edit, click on the pencil button. Please direct further requests for help to appropriate wiki projects' help desks.

ASammour (talkcontribs)

Thanks for your reply, what i meant is when i open wikipedia on the phone i see the mobile site for wikipedia, if i want to correct something in the mobile site, how can i did it?.
