Hi Petr!

The Extension:MultiUpload page says that you've taken over maintenance of that extension from Tderouin, who has abandoned it. I'm very unclear how this process works, and I'm confused. I applied a while back to maintain this extension, and successfully had a git repo created for that, so I thought I was the maintainer, though I haven't made time to work on it yet.

My intention was to check in a completely new piece of code in place of the existing extension, since I've written a new MultiUpload interface as part of a different project. Here's a demo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d90Tt5EGAc

Do you want to do something different with MultiUpload? Would it be better for me to create a new, separate extension and leave MultiUpload to you?

Thanks!

Sorry, I didn't see this message, you can do whatever you want with that extension, you can even become the maintainer if you wish.

Your recent page move from API:Recentchanges to API:RecentChanges breaks the convention of other pages. We're not using the internal name, as far as I know, we're using the command. Take, for example, API:Usercontribs, which is not only lower-case, but if we were using the internal name, would actually just be "Contributions" once you strip off the "ApiQuery". Or were you referring to a different internal name that I'm not thinking of?

Why do you make a disconnect form SUL and why didnt you change my username globaly?

Jasper Deng (talkcontribs)

He can't. You must do this on all wikis, sorry :'(. Extension:CentralAuth does not support global renames.

There's a discussion about CentralAuth and renaming users that I think you would be able to help with

The question I have is here, and I though you might be able to help with it.

Hi Petrb. I remember that awhile ago, you advertised the Wikimedia Labs project on the en.wikipedia adminstrator's noticeboard. Is it still possible to obtain an account on labs? I left a message for Ryan Lane here, but it doesn't look like he has been very active on this wiki.

Petrb (talkcontribs)

Hello, if you can access irc, please join #wikimedia-labs and type !accountreq in case you can't, please send him a mail, you can use interface of this wiki, to do that

FSII (talkcontribs)

Thanks, Ryan just set me up with an account. If it's not too much trouble, and when you have time, could you do me one more favor? Could you set up a bot instance (or add me to) for me with the java virtual machine and java development kit installed? Thanks!

Hello bots-3 and bots-5 is perfect for you, just type ssh bots-N to get access there.

Please keep in mind that bots-1 - and bots-2 are heavily loaded now

An important message about renaming users

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Dear User talk:Petrb/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)

Whack!

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

For never searching before asking, and for making people who help you feel miserable, free money time machines forced to give you summaries or clickable links to documentation. If spending 30 more seconds to consume some advice you received looks a huge effort to you, why demand others to undergo it?
