Note: I don't check this page very much. If you need a fast response, send me an email.

where is the ISO 8601 page? it was speedy deleted, can you undelete? the wrong implementation still exists.

As Tim did not delete the page, here is not a suitable place to ask this question. It is also inappropriate for you to spam the whole wiki with the same question. If you register, login, and place a request on my talk page then I will copy the most recent version of the deleted page on your user page. You can then report it on Bugzilla if it has not already been reported there. --HappyDog 13:24, 2 April 2007 (UTC)
with whom did you think you spoke? You may know that Tobias was blocked. Furthermore a private discussion between Tobias and Tim took place. And since when it is the wrong place here? Tim is an admin who could undelete it. It's strange that User Tobias asked at different places where he could write about ISO 8601 and it was suggested he could create a page for it, but then one admin can delete it without discussion and with obviously false claims.
And with a lie ( #REDIRECT MediaWiki This page has been salted and protected due to excessive vandalism and trolling re-creations of nonsensical content. )
I am ignoring your request until you start acting in a civil manner, and I suspect the other admins will too. --HappyDog 15:53, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

HappyDog and Tobias: please find some other page on which to conduct your arguments. -- Tim Starling 08:20, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Hi Tim - I'm sorry, that this problem flared up again here. Was not intentional. --HappyDog 23:45, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Extension:Labeled Section Transclusion[edit]

Thanks a million!

Maybe it would be a good idea to describe performance concerns on the talk page so that people will be aware of the issues and maybe even hep solve them. Dovi 21:25, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

LOParserFunctions fix[edit]

Tim, please take a look at Extension talk:LO Parser Functions for some fixes I made. In its official incarnation, LOParserFunctions crashed my MediaWiki. Basically, the i18n file is missing, so I created the i18n file and had it called properly from the main extension file. Thanks. Listrophy 18:31, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Flagged Reviews and Section Transclusion[edit]

As per Aaron's comment here, it would be great if both could be made live at testwiki so that any potential conflict could be noted and dealt with. Thanks! Dovi 16:41, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

CheckUser extension[edit]

Hi Tim.

How can I add CheckUser rights to one user on my own wiki (linux OS)? Extension is already installed. Thanks. Kaster

You should install Extension:CheckUser - VasilievVV 14:38, 14 January 2008 (UTC)

id="wpTextbox1"[edit]

Dear Tim; « id="wpTextbox1" » is an anchor available for

  1. editing pages as [1]
  2. viewing the source code for protecdted pages as [2]

It would be a great improuvement for directional editing having the same anchor also at:

  1. editing an email as in testwiki:Special:Emailuser/I18n
    1. ‎→ bugzilla:012082 · "add « id="wpTextbox1" » to the « textarea » at « special:Emailuser/Foo »"‎
  2. uploading a file as in testwiki:Special:Upload
  3. viewing the source of a deleted page as at [3]

I hope it neither does require to much of your time nor are there other reasons not to implement this. Thanks for all your efforts in advance! Best regards Gangleri 07:37, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Use the existing IDs. There's no need for the ID to be consistent, for either JS or CSS. -- Tim Starling 08:24, 16 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Tim! It is really the best solution. Best regards Gangleri 00:11, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Hi tim,

I just install a second wiki (same database, different table prefix and seperate localsetting.php). How do I transfer specific pages from one wiki to the new wiki. I know you can use import /export from the GUI but how do you do it using the maint script.

Any suggession will be helpful

Thanks

"rc" robot on irc.wikimedia.org[edit]

Hello, someone on #mediawiki say to me you maintain this scipt. I would like to had the bot flag on the irc RC. For the moment the irc robot only display n:new and m:minor flag. For me this flag bot is very helpful, i can do without, but its harder. What do you think about that ? If you show me where i can see the code, i can send you a patch. I can open a bugzilla too, or what even it need. What do you think about that, and can you help me ?

Thanks a lot. Bayo 18:13, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

The relevant code is getIRCLine() in RecentChange.php. -- Tim Starling 10:54, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
Thank.
I just request a simple change if it's possible. Changing the line :
$flag = ($rc_minor ? "M" : "") . ($rc_new ? "N" : "");
by
$flag = ($rc_minor ? "M" : "") . ($rc_new ? "N" : "") . ($rc_bot ? "B" : "");
Bot can also delete, rename a page, upload an image (first part of the if), but maybe its not often, its less important, and it need a more big change. If it need i can do something to display both.
I also see a problem with RC on a long page name, long user name and long comment. The output line is cutting and can broke a multi byte utf-8 charactere, with problem to decode. If i have time, i can do something and and you a patch ? Bayo 12:14, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

SVN extensions[edit]

Hi, I noticed your new WikimediaDownload template, Ive also put a post suggesting a template providing general information for the installation of extensions from the wikimedia SVN here, specifically the template should provide command line svn checkout instructions. I can make a start on it. --Zven 10:57, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Replied on Talk:Subversion. -- Tim Starling 12:27, 18 June 2008 (UTC)


Random Expression in ParserFunctions[edit]

Hi Tim,

in the Help_talk:Extension:ParserFunctions#Rand.28.29_for_.23expr:.3F you stated, that there once was a rand() function, but it was deleted because of the parser cache. Now, i'd like to use it with subst - which i think should work. So if you got that code lying around somewhere nearby, I'd be very happy if you'd share it - please ;) --Sidcom 09:14, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Thank you for the recent extension review work at review queue. I really appreciate it. --MZMcBride 04:52, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

wikidiff2 has been re-written[edit]

Hello, Tim,

I would like to bring a re-written wikidiff2 to your attention, which is supposed to avoid some of the shortcomings of the current standard diffpage.

Recently Sumanah contacted me on this issue.

Please note that the new code is already working locally on string base, that means, I can feed the program with some dummy wikitext pairs and will get the HTML code I did expect. However, there was no broad test in the field yet, experiencing some more real situations than my constructed examples.

I have absolutely no idea how to establish compiling C++ and test environment on a test wiki.

Rather to attract notice than to win a virtual decoration for my CV I filed this story on Coding Challenge, but that one faded away somehow.

Have a successful 2012 --PerfektesChaos 20:01, 27 December 2011 (UTC)

Question about Lookup User[edit]

On the list of information, when it says User record last touched:, what actions trigger the date for that?

Specifically, is it only actions by the user, maybe logging in, or would an action such as blocking the user also trigger it?

Call between Templates JS and Lua[edit]

Sumanah say me to talk you my question : In WM, have you already talked about the call from Templates/JS/Lua to each others ? And perhaps also use variables in templates. I explain in Talk:Lua scripting and hope this can help. Rical (talk) 17:41, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Product Manager (MediaWiki)[edit]

Hi, do I understand correctly from Architecture committee/2017-03-01 that you have something to do with the job posting for a Product Manager (MediaWiki)? Are you interested in getting the posting distributed more widely? For instance, I was thinking it would be nice to tell the top N bug closers/triagers of bugzilla time. --Nemo 08:17, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
