Manual requests

OAuth approval request for ABS uploads

Status:    Not done

To switch my pywikipedia bot over to oauth. It seems like I need to do this now. --File Upload Bot (99of9) (talk) 13:16, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

It looks like your client is owner-only. That should be auto-approved without manual approval. ("for owner-only consumers (which do not need to be reviewed or authorized but are only usable by yourself) @ mw:OAuth/For Developers") Check it, please. — regards, Revi 14:01, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Ok, that's correct. Feel free to decline this then. --File Upload Bot (99of9) (talk) 14:09, 3 April 2018 (UTC)
Glad to hear that! — regards, Revi 14:14, 3 April 2018 (UTC)

Ongoing disruption on Lak Wikipedia by ‎

Status:    Done

w:lbe: - not sure what this IP is doing but they vandalize the project for the second day in a row. Probably in need in a long-term block. Thanks. --Ymblanter (talk) 12:06, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Globally blocked for 1 week. Thanks for reporting. Stryn (talk) 12:56, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

User pages deletion

Status:    Not done

Could you please speedy delete all my user pages (that I had created before the Meta default user page)?

I repeat, please erase the page "User:JackPotte" on every wiki except for Meta. JackPotte (talk) 17:43, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Hi User:JackPotte, if you have a user page on many projects it's probably better to ask the deletion at Synchbot. Stryn (talk) 17:49, 6 April 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, I didn't know this process. So this request can be considered as done. JackPotte (talk) 17:50, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Use of testwiki for testing = all your stuff gets deleted.

Status:    Not done

I have used testwiki for testing the MediaWiki software (which is what it is supposed to be used for). Recently, all of the stuff I put there post-2017 was deleted with the cryptic reason "Why". ("Why" indeed.) Could somebody please transwiki the deleted pages to test2wiki Deployment SimpleWiki, which appears to actually allow testing? (It could just be testing of admin tools, but that's unlikely, since if it was testing, it would have been undeleted already.) Lojbanist (talk) 22:33, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

Have you attempted to discuss this with deleting admin testwiki:User_talk:Oshwah yet? — xaosflux Talk 22:54, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
That being said, the deletions do look like "content" and testwiki is not "A place to put content or anything meaningful". — xaosflux Talk 22:56, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
Also, test2wiki has a front page banner "don't expect anything to be kept." as well. — xaosflux Talk 22:57, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
I have changed my mind; please import here instead. Lojbanist (talk) 00:10, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
It wasn't real "content"; it was test content. (May be interwiki confusion, as the deleting user is also a sysop on enwiki.) I want this content to be somewhere safe, not on a "test" site that turns out to be in-name-only. Lojbanist (talk) 00:36, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
As a note, I have blocked this user for mass tagging pages with {{delete}} tags. --Rschen7754 00:59, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Not done. Stryn (talk) 10:19, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

Delete non-free files in pam.wikipedia

Status:    Done

A year ago, I tagged some non-free and unused images in (pam:Category:Candidates for speedy deletion) and these were never deleted. Today I found this resolution of the Foundation where it says that files uploaded without a free license to sites without Exception Doctrine Policy should be deleted. (Resolution:Licensing policy). does not have active local admins or EDP, could you please delete the tagged images? I tagged only a few, this wiki has hundreds of non-free images that do not indicate license or origin or any data whatsoever (many are images copied from where they are under fair use), but what sense does it have to replace them with free images of Commons (when possible) if then nobody deleted the violations of copyright? Sorry if this request was not very kind (I apologize) but recently I tagged vandalisms and deleted them in a short time (and the images are there always). --Metrónomo-Goldwyn-Mayer 10:11, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

  Done. Ruslik (talk) 20:07, 9 April 2018 (UTC)

Bigdelete request

Status:    Done

en:List of Nostalgia Critic episodes needs a steward to be deleted per en:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of Nostalgia Critic episodes (3rd nomination) because of the long history. Sandstein (talk) 11:20, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

This also applies to the other articles listed in the AfD such as en:List of Nostalgia Critic episodes (2007–2008). Attempting to delete them gets errors such as "To avoid creating high replication lag, this transaction was aborted because the write duration (4.2991790771484) exceeded the 3 second limit. If you are changing many items at once, try doing multiple smaller operations instead. [WtHkJwpAAD0AACZL8LAAAACA] 2018-04-14 11:21:25: Fatal exception of type "Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBTransactionSizeError"", or "A database query error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software.

Taking care of this - per ops guidelines, we need to do one page each time, so it'll take some time to complete. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:24, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
Sandstein: As far as I can see w:List of Nostalgia Critic episodes is the only article with 5,000+ revids. As for the others, local administrators can delete themselves (just try not to perform all of them in the same time or the DB will complain). —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:27, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, deleting one by one seems to work. Sandstein (talk) 11:35, 14 April 2018 (UTC)
I'm trying to delete the big one, but I'm running across DB errors; most likely there's high database replag so I need to wait until it decreases a bit. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:41, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

OAuth approval request for lvwiki

Status:    Not done

It currently will be used for two tools, which has to be developed :) a) View list of articles, that are missing in lvwiki and do some edits to list (in tool side), like translating name of article. These rights of course can't be given to all users. b) Second tool is new page review for one of lvwiki users. Doing some actions on tool side (mark pages, import pages to list etc.) and on Wikipedia side (add maintanence tags to articles for example).

But first of all, this OAuth is for testing/learning. Can't use "Edgars2007-only-OAuth", because I will need authorize functionality. --Edgars2007 (talk) 15:25, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Nothing has been developed yet as I understand? Ruslik (talk) 20:50, 20 April 2018 (UTC)
@Edgars2007: --Alaa :)..! 13:09, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
Currently marking this as not done. A little bit misunderstand OAuth using. Will get back when it's really needed. --Edgars2007 (talk) 15:57, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

@Wikitanvir: Why can not you use mw:OAuth/Owner-only_consumers? Ruslik (talk) 19:53, 23 April 2018 (UTC)
I didn't know about that Ruslik, but that's exactly what I was looking for. Therefore, I withdraw my request. Thanks very much for informing me. — T. 07:01, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
