Global watchlist - Update 8Edit

Is there a way to disable this notification? I am currently using the script with 32 wikis, but the extension only allows 5, so I would like to keep using the script. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 08:45, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
@1234qwer1234qwer4 no, there isn't currently. If you want to use more wikis (which I totally understand) please file a request on phabricator - its currently limited due to a performance concern, but since the extension should be more performant than the script I think the limit could be increased.

I could probably live with 15 wikis for now. Will open a Phab task. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿบ๐ช๐‘ค๐’†๐“‡๐Ÿท๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿœ๐“บ๐”ด๐•–๐–—๐Ÿฐ (๐—๐—ฎ๐˜ญ๐™ ) 23:06, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

@WikiBayer yeah, that has happened to me a few times for random wikis, but I can never reliably reproduce - if you just refresh (or hit submit again) it should work DannyS712 (talk) 16:30, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

Page translationEdit

Hi, @DannyS712:! Wikimedia Indonesia will have a Wikipedia competition in 5 local languages next month. Can you help us to mark this page and this page for translation? Thank you for your support.

Best, Raymond (WMID) (talk) 09:55, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

I can - both pages are currently in Indonesian, right? I should set the correct page language first, so I wanted to make sure. DannyS712 (talk) 12:24, 17 March 2021 (UTC)
Yes, you're right. Both pages are in Indonesian language. Raymond (WMID) (talk) 17:58, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi @DannyS712:, sorry to disturb you again... I added some clickable button templates and 2 sentences at the end of Tantangan WikiTeroka 2.0 page. But I didn't see these addition on the translation page. Do you have to mark it again to make it appear? Regards, Raymond (WMID) (talk) 12:16, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
@Raymond (WMID) I've marked the page for translation again. You may want to consider requesting translation admin rights yourself DannyS712 (talk) 14:37, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for your help! Yes, I've considered for the rights before, but I think I will rarely use it in the future. Raymond (WMID) (talk) 18:03, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Quick assistanceEdit

Hey DannyS712! I've been cropping images from WikiCommons for the longest time and haven't received any negative feedback. However today when I was about to start my wiki edits for the day, I could not crop any images from commons using crop tool because I've "Upload failed! [api] Received error: autoblockedย : Your IP address has been blocked automatically, because it was used by a blocked user". I have not received any messages suggesting I may be blocked or my actions are disruptive. I'm confused because I have not been blocked from editing on any other wiki platforms. The only wiki-related thing that I've been blocked from using is the crop tool? I was wondering if there was a way to check if I am blocked and if so how I can resolve this OR if this is a crop tool glitch. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 11:02, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

@TDKR Chicago 101 can you confirm that your own IP is not blocked on commons? I.e. can you still edit there? If so, then the issue is likely that whatever ip the tool uses was autoblocked DannyS712 (talk) 14:37, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
@DannyS712 I can 100% confirm that I can still confirm my own IP is not blocked. I have no messages, whenever I edit a file there's no banner that says that I'm blocked and I even recently uploaded a file from flickr. Is there a way to fix this autoblock on crop tool? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 14:40, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Then the IP used by the tool itself is likely blocked. I suggest reporting this in phabricator DannyS712 (talk) 14:49, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Where/who would I reach out to? I felt that this might've been a WikiMedia problem since crop tool is using my wikimedia info. --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 14:56, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
Use phab: and file a bug report that crop tool is blocked DannyS712 (talk) 15:12, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
@TDKR Chicago 101 update: this was addressed in a security task on phabricator and should be working now DannyS712 (talk) 17:28, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

You got mail!Edit

Does something like this exist? (Bot or script to generate a summary of conversations in multi-language distributed discussions)Edit

Hi DannyS712, I was hoping you might be able to help me answer a scripting question: we're looking for something that generates a human-readable sortable report showing, for example, comments with attached diffs in ongoing conversations across different wikis. I suppose it is kind of like a global watchlist, however the display would be formatted differently to better represent a view of participation on a given page that exists in multiple languages. Do you know of anything like this?

(Further details) The usecase scenario looks at wikidata:Q106318421 with the understanding that some of these links are redirects to sections of village pumps (e.g.) and we don't want to know about the whole page in this case, just any thing in that particular heading or subheadings thereof. Xeno (WMF) (talk) 16:15, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

@Xeno (WMF) I haven't seen anything like this - the closest thing I can think of is w:User:Enterprisey/section-watchlist DannyS712 (talk) 17:35, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for the tip, I'm going to try that now. Xeno (WMF) (talk) 23:16, 2 April 2021 (UTC)


Hi. The filter seems to be getting a lot of false positives, and probably due to IP editors. Can I suggest for this filter that you look to exclude page_namespace=10 as that was copping a flogging for a few days, and typically that namespace is not one of particular interest in a global sense. Thanks. ย โ€” billinghurst sDrewth 23:22, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
