Code review[edit]

Congratulations and many thanks for being the most active reviewer of December in MediaWiki core! --Nemo 08:43, 1 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks. Do one good thing per day ;-) [and a bit more].
You should set explicit UTF-8 on the linked page to support Internet Explorer better, because he detects the wrong charset/coding (Seeing "Dziewoński" for example). Der Umherirrende (talk) 09:51, 1 January 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thank you[edit]

Dear Umherirrender. I can't thank you enough for all your help with regards to Code Review and Phabricator. Most patches of mine have moved forward because of you. So thank you for your help and apologies if I did something wrong. I also take this opportunity to wish you Merry Christmas if you celebrate them, and a happy and prosperous new 2018 year. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:59, 7 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello MarcoAurelio, thanks for the warm words and I wish the same. But I cannot help on all Patch Sets ;-) Extension registration is not my area. Der Umherirrende (talk) 20:36, 8 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Unpatrolled pages not showing in newpagesfeed[edit]


Sorry for contacting you here but I couldn't send an issue directly on github about the pagetriage extension.

I've run into a new problem : the unpatrolled/unreviewed pages aren't shown in Special:NewPagesFeed

Oddly, if I review it (without the curation tool, by clicking on "mark this page as patrolled") and then unreview it (with the curation tool), the page magically appears in the

For example, the page "principe" appears in recent modification as a new unreviewed page

But not in NewPagesFeed

Any idea how to solve this ? Thanks !

Hello, the bug tracker for PageTriage is on Wikimedia's phabricator, see all open tasks (with project #MediaWiki-extensions-PageCuration). I am not a developer of that extension, I have only fix some tests to avoid some trouble with them when others changing the extenion.

Collecting examples of simple code work[edit]

Hi Umherirrender, I've been lately thinking of simple configuration code work which does not require much previous knowledge. The idea behind is to help individuals in smaller wiki communities to better support their communities by enabling them to write code changes themselves.

I tried to collect a number of things on mw:User:AKlapper_(WMF)/T126330. As you are very active and knowledgeable across all MediaWiki code in Gerrit (thanks for all your work!), I wondered if there's anything more that could be added.

If you have some time and feel interested, please feel very welcome to take a look and to make edits to that draft page on mw:User:AKlapper_(WMF)/T126330. :) Thanks a lot in advance! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 15:23, 8 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello Elitre, thanks for the Trust, but in my mind I am not the right person for that work. Der Umherirrende (talk) 19:12, 14 July 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
