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)

[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

StanProg (talk) 14:15, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

  Support. --NGC 54 (talk / contribs) 12:02, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

[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)

Tracked in Phabricator:
task T281033
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)

[BUG]: Report function adds improper newline before reportEdit

Type Bug
Setup unknown
  See diff on English Wikipedia: it's a list, so a blank line in between the list items ends the list and starts a new one, instead of adding an item to the list. This is minor, but it'd be nice if it was fixed. Tol (talk | contribs) @ 05:06, 23 April 2022 (UTC)
@Tol Seems no issues and these are unbulleted list after all and I think some noticeboard prefer newline and that's why it was added. (Don't remember exactly which require it). ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:18, 20 July 2022 (UTC)
@1997kB, this is per English Wikipedia's w:en:WP:LISTGAP guideline section and for accessibility in general; this is problematic because it creates a new list instead of adding another item to the existing list. Would there be any way to change this just for English Wikipedia? Tol (talk | contribs) @ 00:11, 21 July 2022 (UTC)

[ADDITION + FEATURE]: About warnings on eswiki and enwikiquoteEdit

Type Addition + Feature
Setup unknown
  • Addition: First of all, on enwikiquote there are some vandal warnings yet to be added: For Spam, Level 1 and Level 2 (Last). Promotional/Advertising Spam: Only warring. Vandalism: 1 (more like for test edits in general), Level 2 (vandalism in general), Level 3, Level 4, there's also another warning, but it should be used only by admins, Lvl 5. Please add them, they're necessary. Also: vandals who passed the 4th or only warning, should be reported on q:Wikiquote:Vandalism in progress, with the following syntax, for IP addresses: * {{IPvandal|INSERT IP ADDRESS}}<br> Vandalism after the last or only warning. ~~~~ and * {{Vandal|INSERT USER}}<br>Vandalism after the last or only warning. ~~~~ for accounts. The header or thread text should read: New report {{CURRENTYEAR}}-{{CURRENTMONTH}}-{{CURRENTDAY}}, {{CURRENTTIME}}
  • Feature: On the other hand, I noticed that there's a problem with the speed deletion warnings in Spanish Wikipedia. SWViewer is using speedy deletions warnings from Huggle, which are now outdated and we now use the following syntax: {{subst:Aviso destruir|PAGE NAME HERE|REASON HERE}} ~~~~. The other speedy deletion criteria can be found in es:WP:CBR.

-Alabama- (talk) 19:23, 17 July 2022 (UTC)

@-Alabama- All of these can be changed by anyone. You just need to edit SWViewer/config.json. ‐‐1997kB (talk) 14:14, 20 July 2022 (UTC)

[SUGGESTION]: Custom CSS/Javascript pages shouldn't appearEdit

Type Suggestion
Setup unknown
  Hello! I feel like SWViewer shouldn't show edits to Custom Javascript and CSS pages since the majority of users can't do anything to them and it requires them to be an interface administrator. Including them in the SWViewer feed feels rather pointless if the majority of users can't do anything about them even if they're vandalism.

Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 15:39, 13 September 2022 (UTC)

@Blaze Wolf On the English wikipedia if you come across inappropriate content in a user CSS or JS page you should place a speedy deletion tag on the associated talk page. 10:04, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
That's something you can do? I didn't even know they did have talk pages. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 13:01, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
@Blaze Wolf All user pages have associated talk pages. Your common.js talk page is w:User talk:Blaze Wolf/common.js. 15:46, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
Well I knew that all userpages had an associated talk page, but I didn't know that CSS and JS pages had one, I didn't even know you could edit them. ― Blaze WolfTalkBlaze Wolf#6545 15:47, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

Translation errorsEdit

Hey, some of the Scowiki edit summaries are incorrect/Scotched. The Scots for "page" for example, is "page" rather than "paige", "Nae uiseful content" should be "Nae uissfu content", "Oot o projecht scope" should be "Oot o project scope" and "Baffle" should be "Haivers". I've asked a few other Scots editors to check in in case there's something I missed CiphriusKane (talk) 01:01, 11 November 2022 (UTC)

Hey, please fix it on:
Summaries, warnings, etc: SWViewer/config.json.

[FEATURE]: Remove edits that have already been reverted from the queueEdit

Type Feature
Setup unknown
  I wish SWViewer could be able to remove from the queue edits that have already been rolled back by other good-faith users or bots, so as not to stumble upon irrelevant cases of vandalism.

evs 💬 19:20, 14 November 2022 (UTC)

It's impossible. Too much load on the device, network and server. Every X seconds scan all queue for each user.—Iluvatar (talk) 05:56, 15 November 2022 (UTC)
