Admin Access Request edit

Hello,

IT sent me over here to request admin access for http://lists.wikimedia.org/. As part of the onboarding process, Ops adds new hires to that site. Please advise.

Thank you,

@AStariha-WMF Hi, I do some maintenance on lists.wikimedia.org. To my knowledge, a super admin account can't create new users. We don't have admin accounts for the whole site (only superadmin which has a pretty large access). If you want to add emails for new hires to some mailing lists (and remove them in case of offboarding), you don't even need to create an account for them, you can just add the email address directly. You just need to be admin in some mailing lists (like wmfreqs-l, etc.) and I can take care of that.
TLDR: What is your specific usecase and I can help you get it done. ASarabadani (WMF) (talk) 15:05, 22 January 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I cannot vote edit

I have been trying to hit the vote button for Turkmen's Steward campaign, but the message will not show up. Is my account not actually eligible to vote or is it something else? GoutComplex (talk) 15:11, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@GoutComplex: You could try to manually cast a voce clicking on "Edit" if you're not able to see the script (maybe your javascript is disabled) :) --Superpes15 (talk) 15:14, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@GoutComplex: Ah, just noticed, the right page is this one :) Superpes15 (talk) 15:16, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Some users had such problems last year as well. The peculiarity is that all these users had few or 0 local edits. I think this happening because users are not autoconfirmed. In this case, need to add vote manually, through "Edit", yes. ❄️Mykola❄️ 15:21, 6 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Adding comments and quotes by the visual editor edit

I don't have the button to add comments and quotes. I really need this, and I'm pretty new to using mediaWiki. Would appreciate help. Nchmn (talk) 21:43, 12 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question about using the MediaWiki API to edit pages edit

I want to use the MediaWiki API to edit pages. And when:

  • My query parameters include "token" (CSRF token), it told me "The following parameter was found in the query string, but must be in the POST body: token."
  • When I move it to the body of the POST, 'The "token" parameter must be set.'
  • No matter how I use it, it responds with a 301 error.

Is it something wrong with the server? Or my code... The content below is my code(in Dart):

final headers = {
  'User-Agent': 'WikiApp/1.0 contact: [email]',
  'Authorization': 'Bearer $credentials', 
};
final code = await http.post(
  Uri(
      scheme: 'https',
      host: fullServerName,
      path: '${wgScriptPath}api.php',
      queryParameters: {
        'action': 'query',
        'meta': 'tokens',
        'format': 'json',
      }),
);
var data = code.body;
final Map wikiTOC = jsonDecode(data);
String token = wikiTOC['query']['tokens']['csrftoken'];
final apiUrl = Uri(
  scheme: 'https',
  host: wgServer,
  path: '${wgScriptPath}api.php',
  queryParameters: {
    'action': 'edit',
    'format': 'json',
    'title': PageName,
    'summary': 'Edited via MyApp',
    'text': textContent,
    'token': token,
  },);


final response = await http.post(
  apiUrl,
  headers: headers,
);
