Catégories en français[edit]

J'ai rajouter des catégories françaises en gardant le nom anglais et en ajoutant /fr à la fin. Je pense qu'il faudrait faire la même chose avec le nom des pages et renommer la traduction avec un nom français quand la page aura atteint un niveau acceptable. Ce qui permet de bien utiliser le modèle LANGUAGES mais de franciser tout ça.

Trop rapide...[edit]

encore merci pour ta traduction. Pour la peine je te pique ton monobook. aha --Pseudomoi 17:16, 29 June 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, je pense que c'est une bonne idée de garder l'uniformité et de faire de redirections. @ plus --Pseudomoi 17:27, 1 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Copies d'écrans en français[edit]

De nombreuses pages d'aide contiennent des copies d'écrans en anglais. Il serait bien de faire la même chose pour l'aide en français (c'est-à-dire : copie d'écran en français). Je veux bien le faire mais je sais pas comment.

L'idéal serait de faire comme pour les articles et d'adopter un nom similaire avec en plus /fr et de terminer par le format de l'image. Ex: Image:M-en-recentchanges.png > Image:M-en-recentchanges/fr.png

Merci --Pseudomoi 18:26, 1 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Ok, je vais d'abord recenser les images en anglais pour savoir quoi copier. --Pseudomoi 18:36, 1 July 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Re: About this site[edit]

PS - Thanks for all your good work in vandalism/testpage patrol :)

Re: Sysop rights[edit]

Hi, can you give me sysop rights on this site. I'm often/sometimes here for making translation into french and vandalism fighting. It would serve that you, Bdk and HappyDog don't delete what I put in the speedy deletion category, and perhaps some maintenance on protected pages.
I ask now because I just put ten article in the deletion category and I would prefer delete them. I'm yet sysop on the french Wikipedia. Thank you ~ Seb35 09:13, 1 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Explain to me how will benefit aside from "vandalism reversion". Your activities on other Wikimedia wikis are of no interest to me with respect to this one, although I should clarify that I don't mean I don't think they're worth something; they're just not relevant here. :) robchurch | talk 01:04, 2 September 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hi, I reverted your change on Help:Searching/es : the template PD Help Page is obligatory to prevent this page is in the public domain and it is better to keep categories. ~ Seb35 10:00, 27 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thankyou - and sorry about that. My edit was unintentional. I was transferring the files to our site and apparently forgot what file I was editing and saving. --Ashcraft 16:45, 27 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Project:Language policy/Migration list[edit]

Hello, translation administrator! Can you please watchlist this page? I hope to get some work done in the next few months. :)

Specifically for the next few weeks, I proposed translation migration as task for Google Code-in students, so we'll hopefully see some help coming from there. You don't need to do anything special: just check there or on Special:PageTranslation if there are pages to mark for translation and do so if they're ok, as usual. If you wish, however, in addition to that you can monitor the list more closely so that students are mentored and assisted even more quickly. Thank you very much, Nemo 19:07, 20 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks. I will follow it, and it will help me also as new translator administrator. ~ Seb35 [^_^] 10:55, 24 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Modify Sidebar Hook - PHP Error[edit]

Hey there! I'm using your modify Sidebar hook for my Wiki as found here While it works like it is supposed to, it throws an error as follows:

PHP message: PHP Warning:  Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /usr/share/webapps/mediawiki/LocalSettings.php on line 158" while reading response header from upstream, client: xx, server: xx, request: "GET /Icon/browser/mozilla.png HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock:", host: "xx", referrer: "xx"

I know nothing of PHP, so any help would be appreciated.



(copied from User talk:
Hi Jeff! Thanks for using this. I’ve just tested again with MediaWiki 1.26 and it works. What are the versions you are using, for MediaWiki and for the skins? You can find these informations in the special page "Special:Version" on your wiki.
PS: we should continue this conversation only on my talk page User talk:Seb35 because, if your IP address changes, this talk page will change.

MediaWikiFarm on MediaWiki-Vagrant[edit]

I'm trying to get the simplest version of MediaWikiFarm running on an instance of MediaWiki-Vagrant for the purposes of learning how it works. Ultimately I want to incorporate MediaWikiFarm into (and would love to have your help with that). At first, I got an error:

"Fatal error: Call to a member function getConfigFile() on a non-object in /vagrant/mediawiki/extensions/MediaWikiFarm/MediaWikiFarm.php on line 30"

The configuration is a bit sensitive. I needed to hard code $wgMediaWikiFarmCacheDir = '/tmp/mw-cache'; in the load method of the Class. Otherwise it was 'null' and not happy.


// Configuration directory.
// There must be a file 'farms.yml' or 'farms.php' or 'farms.json' inside.
// default $wgMediaWikiFarmConfigDir = '/etc/mediawiki';
$wgMediaWikiFarmConfigDir = "$IP/extensions/MediaWikiFarm/config";

# Include the code.
require "$IP/extensions/MediaWikiFarm/MediaWikiFarm.php";


return array(
  # simple definition compatible with MediaWiki Vagrant
  # This one is only visible to the guest (e.g. using lynx from the guest)
  'mywiki' => array(
    'server' => 'localhost',
    'variables' => '', // without a key named 'variables', configuration will fail
    'suffix' => 'wiki',
    'wikiID' => 'devwiki',
    'config' => array(
      array( 'file' => 'LocalSettings.php',
        'executable' => true,
  # this one is visible from the host, through virtualbox port forwarding
  'devwiki' => array(
    'server' => '',
    'variables' => '',
    'suffix' => 'wiki',
    'wikiID' => 'devwiki',
    'config' => array(
      array( 'file' => 'LocalSettings.php',
        'executable' => true,

@GregRundlett Interesting, the Quality Box project! This existing configuration seems to be already quite good, there is probably only a detail which makes the whole thing crash. I sometimes experienced this 'non-object' error: the object MediaWikiFarm is not created in MediaWikiFarm::load(), probably because the constructor returns an exception (which is silently caught in MediaWikiFarm::load()), so the easiest way to debug it is to remove the try and you will see what is exactly the error.

UPDATE: I did troubleshoot, and found how to get the extension working with MediaWiki-Vagrant... The config above does work

Your config file farms.php is in $IP/extensions/MediaWikiFarm/config, isn’t it? Also I didn’t try with a specific port, so perhaps there is a bug there (although I just verified, the PHP variable $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] returns the host+port). In this case (monoversion mode), I see the error handling (e.g. when no wiki corresponds to the host) could be improved, for instance by killing further MediaWiki loading and only returning a 500 or 404 HTTP error, similarly to the multiversion mode. In the mid-term I also plan to improve the logging to know more easily what are the errors.

~ Seb35 [^_^] 01:01, 14 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Indeed, in this configuration, $wgMediaWikiFarmCacheDir is not set by default (hence has the value null) and the constructor does not like it.
In a next version I will allow null in the constructor as a synonym for false (=no cache).
Thanks for the report. ~ Seb35 [^_^] 16:43, 17 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jobs and deferred updates[edit]

First of all, I want to personally thank you for your great work fixing those nasty bugs about jobs and deferred updates, which are hard to diagnose and cause a lot of headaches to site admins!

The Technical Barnstar
A barnstar for your great work fixing bugs about the Job Queue and Deferred Updates on MediaWiki! --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:59, 14 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Since you've been working recently on this, maybe you can make a quick note about the difference between jobs and deferred updates in Manual:Job queue and/or Manual:Job queue/For developers (this one for example talks about deferred updates), at least to clarify if they're different things. I was about to put a summary like you did on task T154425, but maybe you can fit it better on those pages. Anyway, if you don't have enough time to do that, I can reproduce your summary there. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 19:59, 14 June 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ciencia Al Poder: Thanks a lot for this message and the barnstar :)
You’re right, these bugs and/or their resolution should be documented, I will add something in the coming days in these pages. Some topics I see: the two methods for pushing jobs (push and lazyPush), highlight the difference between jobs and deferred updates (and I see there is no page about deferred updates specifically although some mentions in Database transactions); shutdown operations related to jobs and deferred updates in MediaWiki request and in JobRunner [for developpers].

@Ciencia Al Poder: Done on Manual:Job queue and Manual:Job queue/For developers. Could you proofread what I wrote (possibly some English mistakes) and/or say if it clear and/or improve?

Denelezh gender gap[edit]

Hi there, Seb. If I am not mistaken, you are behind the Gender Gap in Wikidata presentation which has recently been updated. As one of the main contributors to the Women in Red WikiProject on the EN wiki, I found your page extremely pertinent to our work in trying to reduce the gender gap by creating more women's biographies. In particular, your graphics on the various sections make the results far more meaningful than in the previous version. Am I right in thinking the latest version is based on the dump fron Wikidata on 9 April 2018? Do you intend to upate these statistics periodically? If so, it would be useful to know how often as they obviously complement the data we currently monitor at WHGI. In any case, congratulations on the work so far. You're doing a great job.--Ipigott (talk) 09:29, 17 April 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
