Please read before you post

The Indic-TechCom request page is intended for placing a technical request for help and support from Indic communities.

  • Relevance: All requests should be related to technical aspects of Indic Wikimedia projects. In other words, a request should be directly related to any Indic-language Wikimedia projects.
  • Community discussion: In many cases, to process the request, community discussion and consensus is a must. So, please consult your community on the respective village pump/mailing list etc. Even in remaining cases where community consensus is not must, you are encouraged to first discuss the request within your community (on your respective Indic Wikimedia project) and discuss before placing a request here. You need to wait for at least 7 days after starting a village pump/mailing list discussion to get community response. Please share a link of such a discussion.
  • User rights: Some of these requests need "Interface admin rights" in a project to complete it. We will request you Interface admin rights for a limited period of time and you may need to write in the same discussion where a community was consulted to make it happen. Please follow this up whenever needed.
  • Assume good faith: Indic TechCom is managed by volunteers. Although we would try to respond as soon as possible. sometimes there might be delays. Based on the difficulty of a requested task, there might be delays as well. Please assume good faith.
  • Archive: For the archive overview, see Archive.

Help neededEdit

Bangla wikipedia's twinkle gadget stopped working. It says ‘Failed to retrieve edit token.’ Not just bnwiki, same on hiwiki. I think this is because of https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.37/Deprecation_of_legacy_API_token_parameters I think bn:মিডিয়াউইকি:Gadget-morebits.js needs correction. Help needed. আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 23:26, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

@Jayprakash12345: Could please take a look. It little bit urgent. --আফতাবুজ্জামান (talk) 23:28, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Hi আফতাবুজ্জামান, Twikle gadget on Bangla Wikipedia is very old. It is using XML format for API calls which is very-very old. Nowadays most of the dev uses JSON format for API call. So I strongly urge to upgrade it to the new version. For urgent basis, I fixed the speedy deletion and rollback modules of twinkle which is most used and usefull module. Maybe other modules can also work but I have tested only these module. See [1], [2], and [3]. চিয়ার্স--Jayprakash >>> Talk 20:23, 9 October 2021 (UTC)
