FOUNTAIN BUG REPORT: Updating comment after judgeEdit

There is no way to remove comment only. Although I was able to push the "save" button in the comment sub-window after changing the comment, I could not push the "save" button of the judging. As a result, I have no way to remove a comment only without changing the judge result. It was troublesome when I noticed I put a wrong comment when judging. --Takot (talk) 15:16, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Takot, you can change the comment (or delete it) and then save again. But thank you for this report, I'll think of a better way to do it. Le Loy 22:46, 15 November 2019 (UTC)
    • Hello Ле Лой, thanks for your interest. Probably I have not described enough the phenomenon. See these three images. You can change the comment after judging, but can not leave it as null.
      Already judge is given and comment is attached.
      Removing already-existed comment.
      After I removed the comment, "Save" button turned gray-out.

Delete EditathonEdit

Hello @Ле Лой:, first I wanna thank you for the great fountain tool. I have a question about deleting an Editathon completely. Would it be possible? I first want to create Editathons for test cases, which have to be deleted shortly after their creation.

How to contribute towards Fountain Tool?Edit

Hi @Ле Лой:,

I am curious to know if the tool's code is open source or that if a clone of the same can be distributed to the local communities' tech interested people (supported by a training) it will be easy to handle glitches from the backend instantly. Please let me know your views on the same.

Re-adding rejected articles due to word countEdit

Minor Issues with Fountain ToolEdit

Hi Le Loy,

We have observed a minor issue in the fountain tool (for Tamil Language) that both of these following titles are represented only with suffix as "30". [2] [3]

Is it possible to fix it? Once we hit these titles (shown as 30) under the tool, it shows the actual numbers and values. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. --Dineshkumar Ponnusamy (talk) 18:45, 4 December 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Dineshkumar Ponnusamy, oops. It's just a display bug (the article's title is stored as it should be, it's just the visual representation that is weird. I'll work on it! Le Loy 23:24, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

In the last hour I am trying to submit a Bengali page named এশীয় মাস ২০১৯ / 'শ্রীলঙ্কার জাতীয় প্রতীকসমূহ' of 33,018 bytes but word count only 131, due to table work and that's why I am unable to submit it to the fountain!

Sumasa (talk) 18:21, 7 December 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi Sumasa, unfortunately that is the way Fountain works -- the idea is to encourage users to write coherent text instead of long lists or tables. Consider splitting it into several short sections -- I'll add it for you then. Le Loy 23:10, 14 December 2019 (UTC)

Adding articles with template to fountainEdit

Hi! Can you please add articles with template:Asian-month-2019-new to fountain? Almost 200 articles with template on the talk page in ukwiki are not in the tool.

About WAMEdit

Hi Le Loi, I would like to warn you that I am interested in contributing to another front in the upcoming WAM contests.

My intention is to contribute to the global organization, I have satisfactory experience in languages such as Spanish, English, French and German, as well as Portuguese.

I also have experience in research projects, studies and statistical calculations. I ask that if you are interested, contact me. Edmond Dantès d'un message? 06:19, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

Suggestions for Fountain toolEdit

Hi, after judging the first contest and seeing Fountain tool in action, I have a few suggestions:

Operation of the toolEdit

I think that the tool should display (to judges) the version of the article that was submitted by the editor, even if newer versions exist. Displaying the current version of the article is unfortunate because:

  • Different judges judge at different times. This might cause different results because the article might have been improved over time.
  • When an article is deleted, it is not possible to see it at all.
  • This happened to us on Slovak Wikipedia: the article was submitted but later somebody moved it to a different page and create disambiguation which was then shown in the tool. We needed to give zero points although the article in the new location was good.
  • We should judge article that was submitted by a certain editor because the points go to them. It is unfair if somebody submits a poor article, submits it, then somebody improves it, you mark it as a great article and editor who added poor article is awarded instead of the other one.


Regarding translations, there are certain messages that appear to be untranslatable in any language, could you please add them and then update the translations?

  • Users
  • Articles
  • Marks
  • Without marks
  • Translate this page.
  • Technical information.
  • Award (button on the edit-a-thon home page)
  • Awarding
  • Award (button on the awarding page)
  • Cancel (button on the awarding page)
  • Accept the article?:
  • Yes (button when accepting/not accepting the article)
  • No (button when accepting/not accepting the article)
  • Personal Cabinet
  • Participation
  • Editathons You Participate In
  • has ended time ago
  • Evaluation
  • Editathons Where You Are in Jury
  • Created
  • Editathons Created by You
  • Approval
  • Editathons Requiring Approval
  • not accepted
  • +1 accepted
  • search... (tool home page)
  • project... (tool home page)
  • Create new (tool home page)
  • Finished (tool home page)

Plus, there might be some other that Patriccck already mentioned.

Also, I don't know how translations are done on a technical side, but I think it would be worth considering to start to use for it as doing it manually as in Slovak language case took a very long time. Also, it is better when you need to update something. For example, the word "Judge" can be a noun as well as a verb. And when we were translating it into Slovak, we used noun because we didn't know the context. Now it is updated but I am not sure when it is going to appear in the tool. It would also be good for other languages if they could add themselves easily so that Fountain can become a standardized tool for contests of this type across the movement. Maybe you could create a team so that there would be more people to maintain it.

Thanks for maintaining the Fountain tool and I hope it is going to be even better in the future. --Luky001 (talk) 11:54, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

One thing I forgot about: When having the tool in Slovak, on the home page ( there are Russian words instead of untranslatable English ones:
  • поиск...
  • проект...
  • Создать
  • Завершившиеся
These ones are normally displayed in English in other languages. What is the problem with the Slovak version? --Luky001 (talk) 12:44, 18 December 2019 (UTC)

Since the contest is going to start on 1st February it is important for the wizard to be live before it starts. Kindly do the needful and ping me if you need any help with the same. Thank you --Tiven2240 (talk) 14:55, 28 January 2020 (UTC)

@Ле Лой: gentle reminder.--Tiven2240 (talk) 09:12, 30 January 2020 (UTC)
@Ле Лой:! Hope you are well. Firstly, I wanted to thank you for setting up our project fountain tool for Wiki Loves Women India 2019 last year. This year we are back again with Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2020 and the campaign starts tomorrow. Can it be possible for you to help us set it up as a priority. I understand that you may have many others tasks in real life and as a amazing volunteer contributor. We would be super grateful for your support for setting up the project fountain tool. If it can be done as soon as possible, our team of 16 language organizers are eagerly looking forward to the tool, so the participants can start submitting the articles. The contest is from: (00:01 UTC 1 Feb - 23:59 UTC March). Cheers!! Wikilover90 (talk) 10:00, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Ле Лой: Me and my students are trying to submit articles in fountain tool (Punjabi) but the tool is not working. The link we got in our project is [this] but we are unable to find anything. Please have a look on it.. we are creating articles and unable to submit. --Jagseer S Sidhu (talk) 12:48, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

@Ле Лой: Thanks dear... Jagseer S Sidhu (talk) 02:40, 11 February 2020 (UTC)

Hi @Ле Лой:, thank you for sharing this information. We actually did follow the instructions. But there are several complications involved. For instance, the first issue is after publishing the campaign, we are not able to change jury members. Second we are unable to change the criteria for a language edition, like remove the 300 word criteria and third, fountain is not accepting expanded articles.

Can you please let me know what can be the solution. Thank you. Wikilover90 (talk) 05:41, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Jury members for WAM2019-simpleEdit

Hello Le Loy, Would you mind changing jury members of Simple language Wikipedia (simplewiki) for WAM2019 tool? Wei4Green is inactive and the article is still to be reviewed. So, can you please add BRPever and Camouflaged Mirage?  Thank you very much! Kind regards, — Tulsi Bhagat (contribs | talk) 10:01, 15 February 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your prompt response, appreciate it a lot :) --Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 12:58, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Customizing Fountain toolEdit

Hi, first of all, thank you much for creating the Fountain tool. However, in many small community-run editathons, where new editors are encouraged to contribute or the topics of contribution does not have much coverage to reach the benchmark set for this tool. Is that possible for you to keep an option for the organizers to set the benchmark based on the parameters that work for their topic(s), community size and other important local factors? --Psubhashish (talk) 06:38, 1 March 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi Psubhashish, it's my pleasure to see Fountain being helpful to many people! Any editathon organiser can make their own editathon with any rules: no size limit -- OK! Accept articles that have 50 or more words -- OK! Accept any articled that were started after year 2000 -- Sure! There is no requirement to have any requirements :-) There are however some editathons that are organised internationally (like Wikipedia Asian Month) that have some international rules and international awards. Your community can run independent events, of course. Le Loy 10:36, 1 March 2020 (UTC)
  • Hii... Le Loy I have expanded two women biography article in english wikipedia but couldn't be able to add it on 'Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2020' in english fountain tool,Plz solve this issue sir.thanks.Durga Soren
    • Hi Durga Soren, the rules of the editathon do not allow that at the moment. If Gnoeee or Tiven2240 agree to allow expanded articles there I can change the settings so that you can add it. Le Loy 22:28, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

Removal of articleEdit

Hello Le Loy, this article was submitted on Fountain tool (For 'Wiki Loves Women South Asia 2020' competition)in my name by another user by mistake. (As I was logged in to the fountain tool on that system.) Could you please remove this article from the submitted list so that the user can submit it again? Thank you in advance. --ज्ञानदा गद्रे-फडके (talk) 14:07, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi ज्ञानदा गद्रे-फडके! Actually any jury member can do that. If they click the little arrow-like drop-down button next to the 'Submit' button, a 'Manage' menu item appears. After clicking it they would see a list of all articles submitted. They can select one or more articles that should be deleted from the editathon and then click 'Remove'.
