Hace no mucho tiempo, me agregaste como usuario, y te lo agradecí muchísimo, porque por estos lares no se prodigan en halagos. Pero mi pregunta es, ¿Cómo después de casi 12000 traducciones puede llegar alguien, decir que copio y pego y quitarme como usuario autoverificado?. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bartolocarrasco (talk) 01:18, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

@Hasley: can you explain the "concerns about translations"? --DannyS712 (talk) 02:44, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
My apologies for the delay. I left a note at his talk page. This user has been heavily using machine translation, which produces texts of unsatisfactory quality —some of them are almost completely incomprehensible—, as well has had problems with documentation pages. Please note that a lot of those translations should be checked and rewritten. Feel free to revert my action if you disagree with it. Sgd. —Hasley 13:01, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Everything that person describes about my translations is false, I do not use any robot and if my translations are of poor quality let him prove it to me. However, these things tire me out a lot and since I don't have the quality to translate, I'm going to quit, I thank you for recognizing my work at the time, but I'm sick and since I only do this to contribute to something that should be beautiful, but sometimes it isn't, I regret the inconvenience caused and I say goodbye. Greetings —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bartolocarrasco (talk) 03:21, 10 July 2020 (UTC)

Blocked Url Cinebible

Hi Danny @DannyS712:, I added a section called Popular Manhwas to wiki/manhwa. The section was kept however the was put into blocklist. If I have violated some rules, I was completely unaware of it. I am still new here and learning things Kindly request you remove it from the list. I will be more careful from now and will go through all the policies. After going through all the policies I do understand how what I did could affect the site. And from now I will strictly abide by all the policies. Please kindly understand and remove the Url from block list. Thanks Elliot —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Elliot wk (talk) 21:40, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

If you would like to use the url on a specific wiki, please request that it be locally whitelisted --DannyS712 (talk) 09:37, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: No I wouldn't link to the site from any wiki for now. First I will work on building the authority of the site for a few years. Its just later it would be very difficult to whitelist it. I do understand why you did that and appreciate your contribution. I promise that will never happen again and I do look forward to learning a lot from you. Please give me one chance. I promise that I won't disappoint. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Elliot wk (talk) 17:57, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

So what exactly do you want me to do, if you don't want it whitelisted? --DannyS712 (talk) 17:59, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

I think its on the global blacklist. I just want you to whitelist it so later I don't have to whitelist it locally. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Elliot wk (talk) 18:02, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

There is no global whitelist, and since you said you aren't going to use it I'm not inclined to remove it from the blacklist. (Also, please sign your posts with ~~~~ at the end) --DannyS712 (talk) 18:08, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

I honestly was unaware of the policies. It just makes me anxious that my site is on the blacklist ( a side effect of PTSD). And just because I am aware of it, it's constantly bugging me. What I meant is that currently, I won't link to the site and will work on its authority so after some time it becomes link-worthy. I have been researching Wikipedia policies and realized how some people can bring down its credibility by spamming. Trust me I am not one of them and what I did was truly a mistake which I guarantee will never happen again. I really want to learn as much as I can from you. Please give me one chance for redemption and remove it from the blacklist. I have worked really hard on the site and have been saving for 7 years to get it made. To have it on a blacklist takes my sleep away. --Elliot wk 18:59, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Okay, I'll remove it, but if it is spammed (by you or others) it'll be added back --DannyS712 (talk) 19:12, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks a lot DannyS712. I assure you that will never happen from my end and I will remove it if I ever find it at any other wikis. But when it comes to others can you please suggest how I can make sure no one else does it. Also if you find it anywhere else just nudge me once and I will remove it instantly. Thanks again --Elliot wk 19:58, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Intervention needed on IG wiki

Greetings, Danny! I see you've recently helped revert some vandalism on the Igbo WP. As it's a more extensive and recurring problem, I've explained it at Talk:Small Wiki Monitoring Team#Protection against IP vandals. Hoping this will help. -- Cheers, Deborahjay (talk) 15:47, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. DannyS712 (talk) 16:19, 5 September 2020 (UTC)


Hi DannyS712. Let me ask you a question. Who do you give autopatroller to? --Gomdoli (talk) 03:36, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

I look through recent changes and check the users with unpatrolled edits. Trusted users on other wikis, WMF staff, users I personally have interacted with, and others that I don't believe require patrolling are the ones I grant autopatroller to. --DannyS712 (talk) 03:48, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
changed my group membership on autopatroller, and revi changed again. What do you think? --Gomdoli (talk) 03:51, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
I think you should discuss that with @-revi --DannyS712 (talk) 03:52, 11 September 2020 (UTC)
Ok thank you -- Gomdoli (talk) 04:04, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

Removal for October 2020

Hello Danny, I tried to help you too. By the way, I didn't write admin actions that are in 10, because they are no less than 10. You can check what I've added informations if you want. Regards. --Uncitoyentalk 00:02, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Meanwhile, I exempted 8 newly elected admins and foundation accounts. I checked the contributions and logs between 1 April and 1 October with both Xtools and manually. --Uncitoyentalk 00:12, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
I originally included DerHexer, but then realized that their edits include edits in the mediawiki namespace, which count as admin actions, so I removed them, see Special:Diff/20510356 DannyS712 (talk) 00:16, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
As for the other admins missing log entries, they appear to have had 0 and so didn't show up on Xtools DannyS712 (talk) 00:19, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
You are telling the truth. Also Kaganer have 1 edit on MediaWiki namespace. There was too much inactive admins during this period. :( If there is something missing, you will notice better. --Uncitoyentalk 00:25, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
I reviewed the other users that you added:
I also double checked Base and Anthere
It would be nice if I could help you. Are deleted contributions also counted? Perhaps it may work for those admins on the borderline. I can't see it because I'm not an admin. You deserve to be congratulated as you prepared this list almost by yourself. :) According to the response from bureaucrats, this list will be finalized. --Uncitoyentalk 00:56, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
I checked all of the deleted contributions if I recall DannyS712 (talk) 01:07, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
You've done almost everything. Thanks. --Uncitoyentalk

Thanks Danny. I forked and amended the query we used the last run at quarry:query/47833 but for some reason it keeps failing (Lost connection to MySQL server during query). Regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:06, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

No idea, sorry. It might be too much to try and get edit counts and log actions at the same time. For the future, edit counts can be retrieved with quarry:query/38975, and for log actions xtools and manually checking might be needed (we still need to clarify which log actions count though) DannyS712 (talk) 21:06, 4 October 2020 (UTC)


Please delete this. Cheers --Synoman Barris (talk) 21:06, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Already deleted by @Hasley. In the future, reporting to GSR is probably the fastest DannyS712 (talk) 21:15, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Permissions on Wiki

Hello, can you help me request some user groups to be added to the Wiki i am in. The only usergroup in sw.wiktionary is IP block exception, I don’t know any thing on phab and how to create tasks e.t.c. Since its a dictionary Autopatrolled Rollbacker, Mover and Patroller . I have already discussed with the only active user. Cheers (please ping on reply) --Synoman Barris (talk) 11:13, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Please see Limits to configuration changes - specifically "Special groups on small wikis" - if there is only one other active user, the creation of such groups will likely be declined DannyS712 (talk) 15:48, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you make script for me?

This script is Twinkle ARV script on kowiki. A new section should be created at the bottom, but the English Wikipedia is not, so it has to be changed. I don't know how to do it. Thanks. Gomdoli (talk) 00:09, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I don't really know how to do that DannyS712 (talk) 00:09, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Ok, Thank you for reply. Gomdoli (talk) 00:11, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi Gomdoli4696, you might want to know about Grants:Project/Rapid/SD0001/Twinkle_localisation. SD0001 (talk) 13:30, 14 October 2020 (UTC)
I checked it. Thanks. Gomdoli (talk) 22:45, 14 October 2020 (UTC)

Please block

Hi. Will you please block (talk · contribs), (talk · contribs), and (talk · contribs) since IPs on those ranges have been persistently harassing and vandalizing pages I edited and my talk pages for months. Not only in enwiki but also across several wikis like idwiki and commonswiki. the first ( (talk · contribs)) and the 2nd are now blocked on enwiki only for some time so he moved to commons. Thanks. Flix11 (talk) 07:12, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

I suggest requesting an Meta:RFH for local blocks - since those are fairly large ranges, I don't feel comfortable blocking them right now. Though, a global block might be called for instead? In which case I suggest using SRG DannyS712 (talk) 22:34, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi there

Hello from Wikivoyage Danny, I could use some advice. WV has been giving me alerts about failed attempts to log in my account (six as of the last 60 minutes). My password is strong, but I wonder if there are ways to beef up the security. Any help from you is welcome. As a side note, I'd like to be of more service as janitor in Wikipedia and Simple Wikipedia, help with the massive workload there, as you've been helping Wikivoyage, and maybe start tweaking Wikidata too for the benefit of both communities. Your guidance is very welcome here. Cheers Ibaman (talk) 21:32, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

I get a lot of those notifications too - its an lta, and I would ignore them (maybe enable 2FA?) DannyS712 (talk) 21:33, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Infobox template

Hi there! I kinda need a help of adding legal status in the Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia infobox.

Help activating translation

Hi, could you please help activating translation to this page Wiki Masyarakat Adat. I'm about to translate the page into English. I've marked it with translation tags but need a translation administrator to activate it. Thank you in advance. Wirjadisastra (talk) 05:51, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

@Wirjadisastra sure, but before I do the page language needs to be set correctly - what language is the page written in? DannyS712 (talk) 05:54, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I forgot to tell. It's written in Indonesian or Bahasa Indonesia. Wirjadisastra (talk) 06:06, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi, could you help me again with tagging for translation to Wiki Masyarakat Adat? I would translate the numbered part, but I can't. Also, please tag Wiki Masyarakat Adat/Berkas for translation, including the filenames. Thank you! Wirjadisastra (talk) 03:45, 19 December 2020 (UTC)


Hi! You granted autopatroller rights to Vova WIFI thinking that his edits didn't have to be patrolled, but in fact they do.

Actually, I've already looked at his activity on Meta and asked him to refrain from translating anything here, but he doesn't seem to be willing to stop. (See ru:"Обсуждение участника:Vova WIFI#Ваши переводы на Мете". And here are some examples of bad translations, look at my comment.)

Therefore I think it would be advisable to remove his autopatroller flag before he does any more damage.

Btw, the user has already lost his autopartroller status on the Russian Wikipedia. Cause he posted machine-translated articles there. See ru:"Википедия:Заявки на снятие флагов/Архив/Патрулирующие/2020#Vova WIFI: флаг автопатрулируемого". --Moscow Connection (talk) 08:02, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

  Done DannyS712 (talk) 08:37, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Hello, @DannyS712:! For some unknown reason, I was not warned in time, so I could not say anything in my defense :(. But I will speak out now:
First, the reason for withdrawal can not be another project (in my opinion). Second, three hundred and fifty translation edits are enough to say that my translation is correct. Thirdly. The theme of Wikipedia is much easier than those topics that I've translated in the ruwiki. So you can be sure of the quality. I don't really care if I have rights or not. But it's a shame Vova WIFI (talk) 09:57, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

In this case, given that cannot check the quality, since I don't know the language, I'd rather err on the side of caution --DannyS712 (talk) 06:07, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712:OK. I can get people to check on me. They know both English and Russian. They will check and correct for a while, and then they will give their opinion. How do you like this idea? Vova WIFI (talk) 06:10, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, but I'd rather someone who understands the language regrant the rights if and when that should occur DannyS712 (talk) 06:11, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712:, I'm afraid there are few administrators who know both English and Russian. If they exist at all. Vova WIFI (talk) 06:12, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Sorry DannyS712 (talk) 06:14, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Nothing wrong. We will look for a way out of the situation. Vova WIFI (talk) 06:15, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Vova WIFI has contacted me on whether I can grant him the flag pointing to this discussion for context. I looked briefly through 50 recentmost contributions of his, at the moment it is a no. Translations:Wikitechnocracy/1/ru, Translations:Grants/27/ru, Translations:Grants/31/ru, Translations:Grants/35/ru — those are considerably off. Knowing from Discord server that the user uses Yandex translate, I have checked if that's the case here: — indeed, the former translation goes as far as to match broken wikicode. The latter seems to be fixed a bit, but the translation is off (I do not see what "людей" is for there). Either the user shall stop translating or their contributions indeed need to be patrolled. I see them as a good-faith editor, but unfortunately in this case CIR kicks in. --Base (talk) 08:45, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

@Base:, I can offer an alternative. I can invite people to follow my edits, and then they will give their opinion about the quality. Vova WIFI (talk) 09:05, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Vova WIFI, that is a good option, but that basically is patrolling. --Base (talk) 09:15, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
Then we'll see, we'll see. Vova WIFI (talk) 09:20, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
@Base:, @DannyS712: What if I don't do translations? I can fix incorrect links, for example. Владимир Меланхолин (talk) 09:29, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
In that case, patrollers will likely patrol your edits - autopatrol isn't a "hat" (w:Wikipedia:Hat collecting) that you should pursue, it does not grant you any additional powers, just reduces the burden on patrollers DannyS712 (talk) 09:31, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: I know. If I fix links, it will turn into massive bot-like edits, and I don't want to unpatroll articles. Владимир Меланхолин (talk) 09:52, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
If you're going to be bot-like editing, maybe request approval for a bot? You can't unpatrol articles... its just your specific edits that would need to be reviewed DannyS712 (talk) 09:55, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712:I don't know how to make bots. I could request a fluder flag, but I'm unlikely to get one. I'm not sure if my edits are big enough to be patched quickly. Moreover, there will be a lot of them. Владимир Меланхолин (talk) 10:02, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I don't really understand what you're asking - if you don't think this warrants a bot flag, why describe it as "massive bot-like edits"? Either way, I'm not comfortable granting autopatrol, particularly given your repeat requests - autopatrol is designed to help the patrollers, not the editors that have the flag, and you seem overly focused on gaining the rights DannyS712 (talk) 10:03, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: no way. My focus is not on rights, but on helping the project more. I think the patrollers are not idle, they have something to do. Владимир Меланхолин (talk) 10:07, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
If your focus is on helping the project, please go help instead of requesting rights here DannyS712 (talk) 10:08, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Please check my edits. Are the pages I edit open for editing? Владимир Меланхолин (talk) 10:19, 14 December 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, but I'm not going to go check all of your edits right now - all pages are generally open to editing, and if your edits are inappropriate they'll be reverted, but at this point I've spent a lot more time on this conversation than expected, and would prefer to just move on DannyS712 (talk) 10:20, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

Find blacklist entry

Thanks for this. I have one request though, could this be hooked into the {{BLRequestLink}} and’s {{WLRequestLink}}? Both are used on the blacklists and whitelists. —Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 04:24, 20 December 2020 (UTC)

@Beetstra what do you mean by hooked into? What do those templates do? DannyS712 (talk) 07:02, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
With 'hooking into': I would like to have a 'find entry' link that calls your script, reporting back the results on these links.
For 'BLRequestLink' it is to specify a specific link for the blacklist (either adding or removing), 'WLRequestLink' (on en.wikipedia) is specifically used on the whitelist but basically doing the same as BLRequestLink:
  • Link/text requested to be blacklisted:
The blacklisting script (BLHandler and the WL and BL scripts in my userspace) take that link, convert it to a regex and add/remove it to/from the blacklist and whitelists, like they do with the domains out of {{LinkSummary}} (the 'find entry' is sometimes also informative on the domains reported in LinkSummaries).
Thanks. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 08:13, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Hmm, okay. So this will need to include the regex handling your scripts have, and also have a parameter to pre-set the url to search for. Might take me a bit DannyS712 (talk) 09:08, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Is your script matching an url against all regexes? In that case it is a matter of doing the same with parameter '1' (or 'link'). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 11:16, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
The script is testing the url against the blacklist api first. If it matches (and thus the url is blacklisted) it retrieves the contents of the local spam blacklist, filters the lines, and then checks the url against each regex until one matches. If there is no match, it does the same for the global blacklist DannyS712 (talk) 20:52, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Okay, you can now set the link= param to preload a value. Is that what you were looking for? DannyS712 (talk) 04:29, 22 December 2020 (UTC)



The Editing team has scheduled a major update to mw:Extension:DiscussionTools (the new Reply tool) for next week's deployment train. Since you invoke the feature from a script (I do, too), you're probably going to see that update next week, before it's officially released in the mw:Beta Feature system. The new update will use a similar system for starting a ==New discussion==. As before, full-page wikitext editing will not be affected. There is more information on the project page at mw:Talk pages project/New discussion.

If you encounter problems next week, please ping me or leave a note on the talk page for the project. Thanks, Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:49, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

re-opening previous request

Dear DannyS712,
in your talkpage archive 2 is a request User_talk:DannyS712/Archive_2#Help_activating_translation - from user:Wirjadisastra with regards to how to get the page Wiki Masyarakat Adat/Berkas set up for translation. It was requested after the original message and so you mightn't have seen the followup. This page is the most visually impressive part of that project's report, and so as the grant-officer from the WMF associated with the project I would really like to help it be seen by as many people as possible. I don't suppose you could help set it up so that it can match the Indonesian equivalent - see the redlink for "Berkas" at Wiki_Masyarakat_Adat/en. I'm sorry if this is an unusual request, but I don't wish to ruin or cause extra work for user:Wirjadisastra by fiddling with templates I am not confident with. Sincerely, LWyatt (WMF) (talk) 16:44, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

@LWyatt (WMF) @Wirjadisastra sorry for not seeing the request earlier. I've switched the page language to Indonesian and marked it for translation, please let me know if there is anything else DannyS712 (talk) 04:34, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, but there is one thing you miss, the "Peraturan Bupati" part. I've added tags around it, but I can't translate it, so need your help again. Wirjadisastra (talk) 12:58, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Hello my friend! We’re launching wikiKind today as part of Wikipedia’s 20th year, and to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

And I want to personally thank you for being a founding member of wikiBlind. We’re starting to pickup steam!

Made this Heart-shaped Finger Labyrinth especially for you and all our wikiBlind wikiKind! Can we send you a tactile version by snail mail so you you can enjoy it with your fingertips?

It’s a maze of twisty passages all around here. Sometimes, it’s hard to feel appreciated, and you deserve some love! This Heart-shaped Labyrinth is to say Thank YOU for all your hard work. I appreciate you being here - I really do - and so do these peeps!
You can also share some wikiKind wikiLove (on English Wikipedia) by adding {{subst:Heart Labyrinth}} to any talk page with your own message. Or grab this code and remix to post anywhere!

love always,

Please share some wikilove!
What the world needs now, is love sweet wikilove
It’s the biggest thing that there’s just too little of.

please contact by e-mail

Dear DannyS712, please contact me by e-mail if possible. Thank you. --Krd 14:14, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

@Krd unfortunately, this isn't currently possible, my email account was suspended by gmail (fairly sure its because of a specific LTA that has been harassing me) - I'm waiting to hear back from google about my requests to restore the account. Is something wrong? DannyS712 (talk) 15:16, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
I just wanted to point out what you just described, but as you already aware please disregard my request. --Krd 16:39, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Global watchlist - Update 8

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. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 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. DannyS712 (talk) 16:29, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
I could probably live with 15 wikis for now. Will open a Phab task. 𝟙𝟤𝟯𝟺𝐪𝑤𝒆𝓇𝟷𝟮𝟥𝟜𝓺𝔴𝕖𝖗𝟰 (𝗍𝗮𝘭𝙠) 23:06, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Hello i use your script FindIPActivity and i have often a problem

I receive the message "Something went wrong" Do you know how to fix the problem. console.log:

@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 translation

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 assistance

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: autoblocked : 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)

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

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.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:22, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
