Please reformat message to ja.wikipedia.org edit

On ja.wikipedia.org, messages from "MediaWiki message delivery" are post to ja:Project:お知らせ/ウィキメディア共通, and messages are included on ja:Project:お知らせ(discussion:ja:Wikipedia‐ノート:お知らせ#財団さんからのお知らせと日本語版内部のお知らせを分けませんか). So, please change message's header from h2 tag(== xxx ==) to h3 tag(=== xxx ===), and post on section "ja:Project:お知らせ/ウィキメディア共通#ウィキメディア共通のお知らせ" . --Miraburu (talk) 04:24, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply

Hi @Miraburu. Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the default Heading-level (h2->h3).
MassMessage senders just use the interface shown here File:Screenshot of MassMessage MediaWiki extension.png. It simply adds a new section to the bottom of whichever page is specified in the Distribution list that was used (per your listing).
You could file a Feature Request for this in the Phabricator workboard (phab:tag/massmessage/), or contribute a patch. However, I would guess (I am not a developer) that it would be technically complicated to make a new setting that only applies to specific pages, so that would make it more difficult, and thus unlikely to be implemented soon.
I hope that helps. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 21:54, 12 September 2022 (UTC)Reply
Hi Quiddity. Thank you for advise. I will discuss format to display the message some more at the ja.wikipedia.org. Miraburu (talk) 00:50, 13 September 2022 (UTC)Reply

Messages are delivered on a wrong page on Nias Wiktionary edit

I noticed that the MediaWiki message delivery arrived on a wrong page on niawikt. Would you please post the messages on wikt:nia:Wiktionary:Monganga_afo as it correctly done on niawiki. I had to move the old messages (2022) to the correct page manually. Thank you in advance. Slaia (talk) 11:35, 14 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Slaia There were a few delivery lists that had Bawagöli zato. I've changed them all to Monganga afo. (1, 2, 3, 4.) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 23:52, 17 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Request to support a wiki edit

Can i request to massmessage support Ghanaian Pidgin Wikipedia, CentralAuth includes a huge list, so why not support this wiki? Notrealname1234 (talk) 21:35, 22 July 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Notrealname1234 It should already work, it's just that newer wikis are not shown in that account's CentralAuth table due to a technical issue (phab:T275931). If it's failing to deliver messages that were sent to that wiki, please file a new bug for that. I hope that helps. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:35, 18 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Questionario edit

Stavo rispondendo ed è saltato tutto senza alcuna spiegazione ciò è molto antipatico. Cordialmente Agnese Cetti ciuliettom 80.104.15.115 13:29, 5 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Erroneous destination edit

Hi, someone sent a MassMessage destination in the Wikisource:Scriptorium page on the French wikisource. But that page is actually made of monthly pages, so it should have been sent to the fr:Wikisource:Scriptorium/Octobre 2023 page instead. I did the transfer, but please fix this if other messages are planned in the future. Seudo (talk) 16:38, 18 October 2023 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the transfer and for the note here! You can find out which delivery list was used in a MassMessage by looking at the wikitext for the original message, which always ends with a hidden HTML-comment that links to the page used; in this case it was from User:SGill (WMF)/lists/WS VPs, which I think I've now fixed by copying from a working version elsewhere. I hope that helps. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:26, 18 October 2023 (UTC)Reply
