{{looks useless}} to me and is unused. Similar case as Template:OPPOSE. I can understand that we may want to create a less serious atmosphere here sometimes, but I'd prefer this kind of templates don't mushroom on Meta. Thanks. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:58, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Recent creation, and I would agree with the sentiments expressed. The strength of someone's support would have no impact on my decision making compared with the argument they produce.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:22, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
I agree with MarcoAurelio. In retrospect, I think it will be better to create in my userspace next time. Is it possible for userification? If not I will agree to it's deletion. Apologies.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 07:41, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
Sure it's possible. No objections to userfy to your space. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:46, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

User:Jose txitxi

Improper use. I tried to use {{Delete}}, but I was stopped. --HVL talk 22:34, 2 March 2020 (UTC)

  • @HVL: Thanks. The reason why you are stopped is non-autopatrolled users are prevented to edit other users userpage by an abuse filter. I will add autopatrol to your account for you to tag it.   Done--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:06, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
@Camouflaged Mirage and HVL: that filter should have told you to just place the tag on the associated talk page for follow up. — xaosflux Talk 16:18, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Thanks for the elaboration, yes, the abusefilter-disallow text will point them to use the talkpage rather than here. In general, this will be the approach and not by granting the autopatrol user right. I granted them the autopatrol is mainly due to the trust that they are a sysop of a large wiki (ptwiki) and won't vandalize or screw up things here. That said, I know their edits here are quite low, less then the usual threshold that we usually grant (I personally will grant around 50 - 100 edits at least). With this valid use I am considering this as an IAR action and I believe they won't abuse the right in general. I hope this explains. Thanks. --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 17:59, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

User:Killarnee/archive/wiktionary/1

The following discussion is closed.

Oben steht, dass man hier in jeder Sprache einen Antrag stellen kann. Ich hoffe, es gibt Admins hier auf Meta, die Deutsch können.

You can find an English translation below. --Udo T. (talk) 13:30, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

Auf der genannten Seite wird die Benutzer-Diskussions-Seite von User:Killarnee aus dem de.wiktionary angeblich archiviert; eigentlich eher gespiegelt bzw. dupliziert. Das Original befindet sich unter wikt:de:Benutzer Diskussion:Killarnee

Da aber hier auf Meta die Vorlagen aus dem de.wiktionary überwiegend nicht vorhanden sind bzw. eine ganz andere Funktion haben, werden dadurch natürlich einige Diskussions-Beiträge nicht korrekt wiedergegeben. Außerdem hat der Benutzer eigene Anmerkungen hinzugefügt. Mal abgesehen von Sinnhaftigkeit dieser Kopie stören mich dabei einige Aspekte:

  • Auf dieser Seite sieht es auf den 1. Blick so aus, als ob ich und auch noch 2 andere Benutzer aus dem de.wiktionary dort mit Killarnee diskutiert hätten. Dies ist aber natürlich nicht der Fall und ich möchte mich in aller Entschiedenheit dagegen verwahren, dass meine Signatur hier auf Meta auf einer Benutzer-Unterseite auftaucht, auf der ich nie etwas geschrieben habe. Ich sehe hierin mein Persönlichkeitsrecht in starkem Maße verletzt; immerhin sind es meine Signaturen, also meine Unterschriften, die ich auf dieser Seite aber nie gesetzt habe.
  • Auf der zu löschenden Seite ist es auch, anders als auf der Original-Seite im de.wiktionary, nicht möglich, anhand der Versionsgeschicht überprüfen zu können, wer genau was und wann geschrieben hat. Theoretisch könnte der Benutzer dort den Diskussionsverlauf abändern und damit verfälschen, was auch durch Einfügen einer Fußnote bereits geschehen ist.
  • Darüberhinaus sehe ich in der Seite auch einen URV-Verstoß: auf w:de:Wikipedia:Urheberrechte beachten steht in 2 Sätzen folgendes:
„Nach der Creative-Commons-Lizenz „Namensnennung, Weitergabe unter gleichen Bedingungen“ und der GNU-Lizenz für freie Dokumentation, der alle Wikipedia-Artikel unterliegen, muss die Information über die Originalautoren stets erhalten bleiben. Diese speichert die MediaWiki-Software in der Versionsgeschichte. Ein einfaches Cut&Paste von Text in andere Artikel ohne Hinweis auf die Autoren ist nicht gestattet.“
Dies dürfte meiner Anischt nach sinngemäß auch für Diskussions-Seiten gelten.
  • Und zu guter Letzt ist noch ein weiterer Aspekt zu beachten: Auch gemäß Meta:What Meta is not Punkt 9. (Meta is not a big truck) und/oder Punkt 12. (Meta is not a storage room) ist die genannte Seite zu löschen. Man stelle sich einfach nur vor, Millionen von Benutzern aus über 700 Wikimedia-Projekten würden alle ihre Diskussion-Seiten hier auf Meta rüberkopieren und damit quasi spiegeln bzw. duplizieren. Es lässt sich wohl leicht abschätzen, dass man dann für Meta sehr schnell die Datenbank-Resourcen extrem erhöhen bzw. ausbauen müsste...

Zusätzliche Info: Ich habe den Steward Schniggendiller auf seiner Diskussions-Seite schon deswegen angeschrieben, da ich der irrigen Annahme war, alle Stewards wären auf Meta auch Admin, was aber wohl nicht stimmt. Die dabei entstandene Diskussion kann unter User_talk:Schniggendiller#Ist das auf Meta zulässig? nachgelesen werden.

--Udo T. (talk) 11:35, 4 February 2020 (UTC)

Wirklich? Das alles hatten wir doch schon bei Schniggendiller. Was hast du nur für ein Problem? Bitte Admins, sagt ihm er soll endlich aufhören. --Killarnee (TRP) 13:11, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
jetzt ich auch noch :) Ich bin insofern von der Sache betroffen, als der erste Teil auf der Diskussionsseite von Killarnee von mir geschrieben ist. Killarnees Einstieg als Autor im wiktionary war nicht so geglückt, wenn ich es mal so formulieren darf. Was sich dort, im wiki, als ein Geflecht von Links und archivierten Versionen verschiedenster Edits zeigt, das in einem Umfeld von Hinweisen, Hilfstexten und Anmerkungen steht, ist hier eine Kopie mit Rot-Links und ohne Hintergund.
Ich verstehe Killarnee, der frustriert ist, weil wir seine Edits nicht so akzeptieren. Er will das Ganze ausserhalb dokumentieren. Das ist nachvollziehbar, aber letztlich sinnlos, weil sein Problem mit dem wiktionary nur dort gelöst werden kann. Nicht hier.
Ich verstehe Udos Löschantrag, der keine anderweitige Veröffentlichung seiner Originaledits/Unterschrift sehen möchte, die ja hier auf meta ua aus dem Zusammenhang gelöst sind.
Meine Meinung ist, die Kopie mit den Unterschriften aus dem wiktionary hier zu entfernen und durch einen permanenten Link auf die damalige Version der Diskussionsseite mit genau den Beiträgen zu ersetzen. mlg Susann Schweden (talk) 13:39, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
Das alleinige Setzen eines Links zur Disk.-Seite auf de.wiktionary wäre völlig ok, mit nichts zu beanstanden und regelkonform. Ob es sinnvoll wäre, müssten andere oder Killarnee für sich selbst entscheiden. --Udo T. (talk) 13:56, 4 February 2020 (UTC)
  • @Killarnee: I am not asking specifically about this Wiktionary archive but to all of them, why are you making copies here on meta? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:57, 10 March 2020 (UTC)
I see you are very curious... Don't worry, I'm not ignoring you, but my changes after your ping were just one thing I wanted to do quickly, and then I wanted to quit, so I decided to write to you today. I also have a real life. To answer your question, have a look at Schniggendiller's discussion page, we have already discussed all of this. If you wait a few more days you can delete the page, I will tell you why. --Killarnee (T12) 13:25, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
The page can now be deleted. If you want to know why, check out my user page in a few days. --Killarnee (T12) 18:34, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply Killarnee,   deleted per discussion and author request.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 18:43, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

PhpDoc

This page is tagged to be exported to mediawiki.org, and it could be, but mediawiki doesn't (no longer? not sure if it did) use phpdoc; we use doxygen, which is similar, but not identical, and it is already documented at, eg, mw:Manual:Coding conventions/PHP#Comments and documentation. I propose that PhpDoc be deleted from metawiki; if others want the documentation to be kept, I'll import it to mediawiki and mark is as outdated. So, can it be deleted, and should it be imported there first? --DannyS712 (talk) 03:05, 11 April 2020 (UTC)
