Hey Derick!

I am so happy to see you working with the WMF. Congratulation! I did not get time to apply for this offer, as I see my friend there why can't I be happy? I also encourage your commitment to the african community. Go ahead! --BamLifa (talk) 11:21, 22 March 2018 (UTC)

Thanks a lot BamLifa. I'm grateful! --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 21:35, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

Ops!!! Please login with your user account!Edit

your change is still causing havoc. You might want to ask ops to flush the caching of that. I get the pop up on every single page here. Multichill (talk) 17:45, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Sorry about the inconvenience. I've reverted the change. The cache gets flushed automatically in 5mins. Sorry! --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 17:47, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Multichill: Issue has now been resolved. Sorry about the inconveniences. ✅ --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 18:08, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Your recent JS changesEdit

Status:    Done


As you are likey aware, your recent change to javascript caused all users to see a dialog box appear unexpectedly. In light of this, Can I recommend you test changes in another environment first? You also may want to consider adding an indication of what triggered it. Finally, I noticed you had 'Ops!' in the notice, Did you mean 'Oops!'? Thanks, RhinosF1 (talk) 17:49, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for reporting. I already reverted the change and using a different approach in solving the problem. Sorry about the mess. --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 17:52, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

default gadgetsEdit

Status:    Done

Hi DAlangi (WMF), are these entires:


literally only used to be the target of the buttons on this page: Connect?

If so, can we change them to sto being default and just tie the script to the button link? — xaosflux Talk 18:42, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
FYI, we recently were able to do something similar on enwiki (c.f. w:en:MediaWiki_talk:Gadget-DRN-wizard.js#convert_to_Snippets/Load_JS_and_CSS_by_URL?) by using newer functionality. — xaosflux Talk 18:44, 27 March 2020 (UTC)
Hi xaosflux, yes I think they're used only on the Connect portal. I'll look at the link you shared and try to understand what was done. Or do you want to go ahead and tie the script to the buttons? --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 10:39, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the note, since it is also on all of those "pencil" links, not going to migrate it for now. Would be a good candidate for <templatescripts> if it ever launches. — xaosflux Talk 12:32, 4 April 2020 (UTC)

Thank you very much! --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 17:33, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

User:Isaacandy userpage editEdit

Status:    Done

I notice that you did a minor edit to the userpage of User:Isaacandy, who has since been blocked for spamming on the English and Malay Wikipedias. There is also currently a discussion open regarding the user's problematic (self-promotional) activities here on Meta-Wiki. Since you made the edit using your staff account, I'd like to know: Does the Wikimedia Foundation have any particular association with the individual in question? I assume the answer is no, and the use of the staff account was just a mistake (or just for convenience), but I just want to be sure.

Thanks. --Yair rand (talk) 06:07, 12 May 2020 (UTC)

@Yair rand: Can no longer see the content of the edit(s), seems the page as been deleted (by ~Riley). Before I begin answering the questions, let me apologize, sorry to break any rules or violate any policy. I had no idea this user had been blocked from editing on several wikis and also, the edit was made just for convenience (in this case I guess) - if I see the revision of the edit (which has been unfortunately deleted as at now), I would have known the reason I made the edit. Also, in my view, I'm not sure if the WMF has any particular association with the individual, none that I'm aware of. Thank you 🙂 --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 10:00, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
Don't worry, you weren't breaking any rules, I just wanted to know if there was some official function I was missing. :) Thanks for the clarification. --Yair rand (talk) 17:00, 19 May 2020 (UTC)


I'm new here and looking for support. I requested a new wiki idea.

Hi Seikopo, welcome to Wikimedia. I don't understand your request, can you throw more lights? --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 12:09, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello Derick. I hope that you're okay. I was wondering if it'd be possible to add a space after the colons (:) in the edit summaries left by the tool y'all use in Module:Affiliate Indicators? I guess it's MediaWiki:Gadget-wadpAIUForm.js but I can't find where to tweak that myself. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:05, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi awesome MarcoAurelio ☺️. I'm okay, world is busy but I'm trying. I'll that, thanks for the suggestion. I'll include it in my work for today & I'll do it for all the scripts. Regards! --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 12:09, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind words and for accepting the suggestion. All the best & stay safe. Regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 12:19, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! I'm trying to stay safe daily. I've applied your suggestions to the scripts. Edit summaries should be fine now, see example edit. --DAlangi (WMF) (talk) 15:56, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Thank you :-) —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:00, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
