Tech News published three times within ten minutes (Week 37, 38, 39)Edit
Johan Johan Jönsson Hi, on phab:T232379 you asked me to come to you here. If you are the maintainer of Tech/News or of its publishing, so please read the sections above. It's the third week now, that MassMessage delivers the Tech News three times within 10 minutes onto all the discussion pages that subscribed to. I mentioned it in the phab task too. I don't really know why the problem has to be forked onto this talk page too, because of this problem seems to be a result of the problem mentioned in the phab task. Johan, please name me someone, who has to be assigned solving the problem. Thank you very much, Doc Taxon (talk) 11:28, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
- Doc Taxon: Ah, as explained in the Phab ticket, that issue has been addressed and there should be no more than one delivery next week. The reason we asked for comments here was because it had been stated in the ticket that this is being fixed this week (phab:T232379#5508822, phab:T232379#5519095) but you seemed to want more explanations, so I thought you also had other concerns. (: Does that answer your question, or am I missing something? /Johan (WMF) (talk) 11:46, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
- Hopefully this means less annoyance in the future!
- (Also, to avoid future confusion: Johan Jönsson isn't me, we just share two common names. My normal, non-WMF account is Julle.) /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:16, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
- Woelle ffm, Doc Taxon: This is human error. What happened was this: using the main target list, only a small number of targets actually got Tech News (possibly due to phab:T232392). My script to list exactly who failed for unknown reasons, so I ended up trying to figure it out manually before sending Tech News out again in smaller batches. Apparently not well enough. My apologies. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 09:37, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
If anyone wants to learnEdit
A few weeks back we posted Talk:Tech/News/Archives/2019#No issue next week – unless you want to write it but ended up having no newsletter that week, which is perfectly fine that week, of course. But if anyone would like to get more involved in writing Tech News, in a less forced manner, please let us know. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 10:09, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
