[OTHER]: Question regarding adding SWViewer to a non-WMF farmEdit

Type Other
Setup unknown
  Hi. At Miraheze (a wiki farm) we would like to get SWViewer in order to be able to combat vandalism more effectively farm-wide. However, I have a question, does SWViewer need direct database access for it to work or how exactly does it work? If this information is private I can be emailed. Thanks!

Hi. On wiki-farms’ server-side should be installed eventStream, also you need a hosting (php/nodejs/cron/DB) for SWV (toolforge is only for WMF’s wikis). Need to rewrite some part of source code and configure oAuth. You could do it ;), but eventStream is not installed. "does SWViewer need direct database access" — no, only SSE (eventStream as source), API and tool’ own database (logs, stats). Database of wiki is not uses. Sorry for my English.—Iluvatar (talk) 08:24, 24 July 2020 (UTC)
It would be a great idea (in the distant future) to combine all projects in SWV: WMF, Fandom (ex.Wikia), Miraheze, etc. But unfortunately eventStream installed only here.—Iluvatar (talk) 08:35, 24 July 2020 (UTC)

Translation progressEdit

Hey, Minorax and Hasley

First of all thank you for all the work in preparation of translation of SWViewer and SWViewer/header.

I am just opening this thread to track translation progress. I see that you guys are fixing little issues. Please ping me once the page is actually ready and have no issues left, so that I can announce it at various places to get translators.

I have also added you two to SWViewer/members, in case you don't want feel free to remove yourself.

To other translators or who wish to help with documentation, if you wish please add yourself to SWViewer/members too. Thanks in advance! ‐‐1997kB (talk) 13:33, 25 August 2020 (UTC)

The latest version looks good from my eyes, but perhaps needs a little tweaking. CC 1997kB and Minorax. Sgd. —Hasley 21:54, 25 August 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB and Hasley: I've added a see also section to link to mediawiki. --Minorax (talk) 04:37, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
@Minorax: Btw it was already linked in header. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 04:51, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
@1997kB: It isn't prominent enough though. --Minorax (talk) 04:52, 26 August 2020 (UTC)
@Minorax: this version seems stable, I think we can proceed now, but would like to suggest changing enwiki articles to Wikidata items. (P.S.: 1997kB, dummy edits are no longer needed. You can mark this page at Special:PageTranslationSWViewer → mark for translation.) Sgd. —Hasley 14:20, 26 August 2020 (UTC)

[ADDITION]: GenderEdit

Type Addition
Setup unknown
  The translation was done in French on, then others came in to put gender in the sentences. Example: When closing in French: « Êtes-vous sûr ? » or « Êtes-vous sûre ? ». Previously this gave « Êtes-vous sûr{{GENDER||e}} ? ». I corrected as long as there was not the m / fem difference. Kind regards.

[FEATURE]: Dubious editsEdit

Type Feature
Setup unknown
  What about adding a feature where could be reported dubious edits and dubious newly-created pages (if an user si unsure whether a certain edit or newly-created page is vandalism or not, other users could verify those edits and pages)?

--NGC 54 (talk / contribs) 18:40, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

@NGC 54: Are there any pages onwiki where people do such requests or you asking it to be added in SWViewer? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:00, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
To be added in SWViewer. --NGC 54 (talk / contribs) 14:02, 22 April 2021 (UTC)
It could look like the log where there are written the last edits/actions made with SWViewer (reverts, warnings, undos...). --NGC 54 (talk / contribs) 14:03, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

[FEATURE]: Enable patrollingEdit

Type Feature
Setup unknown
  Enable patrolling of the displayed edit/diff. This should be available only for patrollers (if not possible, add an option to disable it i.e. remove the button). Maybe a button for this action can be placed at the 1st position (as most of the edits are usually fine). Here's a link to the API reference: MediaWiki API help: action=patrol

[FEATURE]: Warning template levelEdit

Type Feature
Setup unknown
  If a one uses a different warning template after a second uses a different one, it must be arranged in ascending order (1, 2, 3 and 4). Please fix it to prevent objections.

[OTHER]: Rollback pingsEdit

Type Other
Setup unknown
  Recently I made an improvement to config.json, preventing users from being pinged, but today someone reported that they got pinged, so I guess my change hasn't been processed yet. My question is: when will SWViewer load the new config?

bdijkstra (talk) 11:37, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

defaultRollbackPrefix — is parameter for custom rollback: default prefix + custom reason. But here was used normal rollback. String is configured by the MediaWiki, not SWViewer.—Iluvatar (talk) 11:59, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
UPD: see nlwiki and enwiki. You need to ask about settings of MediaWiki for nlwiki on Phabricator. Sorry for my English.—Iluvatar (talk) 12:09, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
I see, so apparently both use the same string, but the MediaWiki rollback suppresses the ping. Otherwise I would have received pings from those. So I think this is an issue with SWViewer. --bdijkstra (talk) 12:52, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
Bdijkstra, No MediaWiki doesn't supress pings. I get them all the time when people revert to my edits. I guess it's depends upon notification settings. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 16:39, 24 April 2021 (UTC)
This isn't about user A receiving a ping when user B reverts their edit, this is about user C receiving a ping when user B reverts an edit by user A to the last revision by user C. In my notification settings, I have mention pings turned on, but I haven't received this kind of ping in ages, except recently with SWViewer. Presumably this user had the same experience. --bdijkstra (talk) 16:54, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Revert potion is not activeEdit

1997kB, You can see here

-- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 05:03, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया, They are disabled because edit is displaying new page creation and you can't do rollback on first edit. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:09, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

1997kB, I just wanted to take this as the basis, sir. In which there is a problem like this even if there are no new pages.-- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 05:23, 27 May 2021 (UTC)

कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया, Please share a screenshot where page is not new and rollback buttons are disabled. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 05:27, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
1997kB, Yes sir sometimes does this problem. Now it is working smoothly. Your pleasure. -- कन्हाई प्रसाद चौरसिया (talk) 08:45, 27 May 2021 (UTC)
