The Affiliate-selected Board seats process welcomes your supportEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because you are active in the field of translations <3 The movement needs you! The Nominations phase has started for the ongoing selection process of two Board members, and the timeline is quite tight.

A Translation Central is available to help translators figure out what's been covered and what's left to do. Over the course of the next few weeks, your attention on candidates' profiles is particularly welcome.

While there are four languages that are especially relevant for multiple affiliates (namely Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish), you can also add others. If you can't help: please see if you know anyone in your circle who could, and spread the word :) Thank you! Elitre (WMF) and Facilitators of ASBS 2019, 13:20, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

User script to view subcategoriesEdit

Hi DannyS712,

If you remember, you participated in the 2019 Community Wishlist Survey, including the discussion for a button to easily view subcategories (Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Categories/Button to show subcategories).

I sent you this MassMessage because I wanted to let you know that I have made a user script to do this.

If you are interested in using it, just add mw.loader.load('//meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:DannyS712/Subcategories.js&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript'); to your global javascript page, or to your wiki-specific common.js page. This imports the code at m:User:DannyS712/Subcategories.js.

If you want to learn more, there is documentation for the script available at w:en:User:DannyS712/Subcategories. If you would like to discuss the script, talk to me at m:User talk:DannyS712.

Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 00:51, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Hi I have installed your script, but I do not see anything new. Alexei Kopylov (talk) 04:46, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
    • @Alexei Kopylov: if you go to a category page, there should be a button labeled "Subcategories" - what skin do you use? --DannyS712 (talk) 04:58, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
      • Hi @Alexei Kopylov:, with the default skin, the link appears in the menu containing the rename page link in my configuration. In the Timeless skin, the link appears in the first section on right of the page.
        • Ok, I found the link, but it does not do anything. Alexei Kopylov (talk) 17:42, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
      • But for me, these links doesn't do nothing. When I click on it, no action is thrown. I'm using Firefox (an old version - 52 - due to my company restrictions). I will try on my own computer this evening. Jpgibert (talk) 08:01, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
          • For me, the console of firebug is empty. Nothing is thrown when I click on link. Only a message in status bar appears indicating "javascript:void(0)". Just one thing, the menu is not hidden after clicking on link in default skin. I don't know if it can help you. Jpgibert (talk) 09:32, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
        • Hi DannyS712. Would it be possible to have a screenshot of the expected result, because I don't see any change in my interface ? Thank you. BluesyPete (talk) 08:47, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Does this help you? -- Lord van Tasm (talk) 06:28, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Not really, I get the first 2 alerts too, but none of the others, and I get them without the script too:
JQMIGRATE: Migrate is installed with logging active, version 3.0.1
VM216:420 This page is using the deprecated ResourceLoader module "jquery.throttle-debounce".
Please use OO.ui.throttle/debounce instead. See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T213426
So I have no idea what could be causing it. I'll try to look into it, but can you uninstall my script and see if the warnings go away? --DannyS712 (talk) 06:32, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Jpgibert commentsEdit

Hi DannyS712,

I tried to execute the test on my personal computer. Fail.

I tried to understand the problem. I launched the debugger on the script with a break point. The script is correctly executed (good thing).

So, I viewed the source code of the page in debugger and I saw that the content of the title attribute of the element having for class CategoryTreeToggle (the element searched by the script I think) is développer (in french, because it is my default language) instead of expand. When the category is expanded, the title element contains replier instead of collapse.

I think that is the origin of the problem on my side. I hope this information can help you to improve your script.

Jpgibert (talk) 18:25, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

@Jpgibert: yes, it does! Thank you so much. Now I just need to figure out how to internationalize it. --DannyS712 (talk) 18:28, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

UpdateEdit

@Lord van Tasm, BluesyPete, Jpgibert, and Alexei Kopylov: It should work now --DannyS712 (talk) 20:12, 19 May 2019 (UTC)

It works fine for me, thanks a lot for your work. Jpgibert (talk) 07:43, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
Now it works on Wikipedia.en and Wikipedia.fr... but (sob) the button title is not translated on the French interface ("Subcategories" instead of "Sous-catégories") on Wikipedia.fr !!! Thank you. BluesyPete (talk) 08:51, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
@BluesyPete: sorry --DannyS712 (talk) 15:54, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
 Thanks! Alexei Kopylov (talk) 01:16, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, great, it works! You're my hero of the day! Thank you so much! -- Lord van Tasm (talk) 09:39, 9 June 2019 (UTC)
ty for your work--Barcelona (talk) 13:39, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

Timeshifter commentsEdit

Category:Meta-Wiki organisation - a deeply nested category.

I am using Firefox (latest standard version) on Windows 7.

When I click on "Subcategories" it expands one level down. When I click it again it collapses. Repetition does the same thing.

Is this the expected result? Would it be possible to add choices to expand further and further down? One level at a time.

Maybe via ctrl-click or something similar. Or a right-click menu that allows one to select the number of levels down. -- Timeshifter (talk) 12:32, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Timeshifter: I couldn't make it recursive without making it language-specific, so for now this is the expected result --DannyS712 (talk) 12:34, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Script to access user watchlistsEdit

Thanks for your note, DannyS712! The solution you provide doesn't really work for my setting since I need to have something that works on a series of private wikis that don't use centralAuth. I appreciate you taking the time to sent out a mass notice, though, so thanks for that!Tenbergen (talk) 02:31, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

@Tenbergen: well I could try to rig something up for you anyway - can you get me the URLs of the watchlists you want to access? (https://________/wiki/Special:Watchlist) I should be able to make a menu to navigate around those, though you would have to install it individually on each wiki if there isn't access to global.js. --DannyS712 (talk) 02:46, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the user script. It provides me a convenient list of all my Wikimedia watchlists. It would be nice if there were checkboxes next to each one. And that checking several of them would set up a single watchlist containing all the items on those checked watchlists. Preferably stacked one after another on one page, and not mixed together. --Timeshifter (talk) 01:47, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

@Timeshifter: that would be a lot harder - retrieving, formatting, and embedding watchlists from different sites is a lot more work. This was only meant as a stop-gap measure until the actual community wishlist item gets actioned. So sorry, but I don't think I can do that. I'm glad it is useful in its current form though. --DannyS712 (talk) 01:49, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
What about stacking transcluded watchlists inside show/hide boxes? So there would be a list of closed boxes on a page. People pick their choices. I might pick these:
  • Meta
  • Wikibooks
  • Wikisource
  • Mediawiki
I have a page of transcluded newsletters:
en:User:Timeshifter/Newsletters
I could easily put them in show/hide boxes on that page.
So why not a page of transcluded watchlists? Can't be that hard. :)
I don't want the watchlists themselves to be modified in any way. Just transcluded.
I guess the key question is whether it would be possible to make a watchlist open in a template:
{{Special:Watchlist}}
Is your user script about to be a gadget or setting on English Wikipedia preferences? It should be.
I have a list of related links:
User talk:Timeshifter/global.js
--Timeshifter (talk) 10:47, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
@Timeshifter: I'll try to work on something, but no promises --DannyS712 (talk) 10:54, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks! --Timeshifter (talk) 10:56, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
I linked to this discussion from the "Latest activities" section at the top of this article:
en:Wikipedia:Global, cross-wiki, integrated watchlists. --Timeshifter (talk) 12:15, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

The Research team could use your helpEdit

Hello. You are receiving this message because of your recent activity in the Translations namespace.

The Wikimedia Research team is developing a new algorithm that automatically recommends sections for editors to add to articles. Translations have already occurred for some of the few languages that we are testing in, except for Spanish and Russian. If you have some time in the next few days, please consider translating the short message (only 6 items) we aim to send out soon, in one or both of these languages. (And if you feel like you want to support your tester peers even more, you can do so by taking care of the related instructions page.)

Thank you! Jonathan Morgan & Diego Saez-Trumper, Wikimedia Foundation Research - 18:14, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Meta:Requests for translation adminship/DannyS712Edit

@Matiia: thanks so much --DannyS712 (talk) 02:42, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Re: remove unneeded newlines to avoid changing translation page template unnecessarilyEdit

What do you mean with such edit summary? Nemo 20:16, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

I've been going through the backlog of pages that have been edited since they were last marked for translation, and on some of theme the only (net) edit is the addition of a blank line. Marking the new version for translation with the newline means that every language version is then updated by FuzzyBot to have that extra line, despite having no benefits. If the change is just ignored, the note about the page having been changed since it was last marked for translation will just stay there. Thus, I revert the addition and mark the newer version for translation, eliminating the message about changes without causing a bunch of blank lines to be added. --DannyS712 (talk) 21:24, 17 July 2019 (UTC)

Please translate the Editing newsletterEdit

Would you please translate VisualEditor/Newsletter/2019/July into your favorite language for me? I'd really appreciate it. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:30, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
