Today is Wednesday, September 22, 2021, and the current time is 21:23 (UTC). There are currently 108,805 pages



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) 22:05, 12 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Request for autopatrol rightEdit

I have requested for autopatrol rights in Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat#Request for Autopatrol rights. Could you help me to check it? Thank you. Best regards --Matttest (talk) 04:29, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[]

I would like another admin review your request. Sgd. —Hasley 14:41, 15 January 2021 (UTC)
Just a note they had also ask Krd for the request, but was then ask for it at RFH. Will note at RFH. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:42, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[] templateEdit

Hello Hasley, yesterday Turkish Wikivoyage was created. However, Turkish version doesn't appear on This HTML page shows a module error. Since you usually update these types of pages, I wanted to ask you. What can you do for this problem? Regards. --Uncitoyentalk 20:36, 20 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Hola Hasley. He estado mirando por ahí y no veo el motivo por el que aparece el error Lua. Me aparece para Wikivoyage y para Wiktionary. Actualicé las estadísticas de visitas, esperando que al añadirse las nuevas wikis el sistema dejase de quejarse pero aún así no hay manera. ¿Tienes idea de qué puede ser? Un saludo. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:36, 20 January 2021 (UTC)[]
@MarcoAurelio@Uncitoyen seems need to get the bots to update Wikivoyage/Table for tr to show, I check the rest is fine. CM-Public (talk) 22:47, 20 January 2021 (UTC)[]
(Edit conflict.) Hola, MarcoAurelio. Parece que EmausBot no ha agregado trwikivoyage a Wikivoyage/Table, de donde presumo que el módulo obtiene las estadísticas (aunque no estoy seguro, teniendo en cuenta mis pobres conocimientos de Lua). ¿Puedes echarle un vistazo? Sgd. —Hasley 22:49, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Puede que sea el bot, sí; pero también faltan unas wikis en el módulo de registro. Voy a añadirlas a ver si soluciona algo, pero el bot no lo controlo yo así que habrá que esperar a que se refresque o algo. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:39, 20 January 2021 (UTC)[]
He añadido un par de idiomas que faltaban y leído un poco el código. Si mal no entiendo, los módulos Lua están programados para obtener las estadísticas directamente de los wikis afectados, sin embargo si hace poco que se crearon hay que esperar a que las estadísticas locales se refresquen. No sé si ello seguirá siendo cierto pero creo que por el momento lo mejor será esperar unos días a ver qué pasa. Lamentablemente Mxn está bastante ocupado offwiki como para preguntarle :-( Saludos, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 23:39, 20 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Yes, same problem exists on Wiktionary. Has this been a problem because new wiktionaries and wikivoyages have been created recently? Thank you for everyone's comments here. --Uncitoyentalk 07:39, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
I fixed the Wiktionary issue, which was caused by a typo in a Lua module. I've now updated the Wiktionary template, but if I am not mistaken the updates won't display at until next Monday. The Wikivoyage portal is waiting for EmausBot to detect tr.wikivoyage and add it to Wikivoyage/Table. I assume the bot skipped it previously because the site stats were not initialised by then. I asked a sysadmin yesterday to populate them so I expect the bot to add it to the table in today's nightly run. Regards. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:06, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
trwikivoyage was added to the table and I have updated the portal. Thanks. Sgd. —Hasley 12:37, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. Even though I touched something while previewing, it seemed like I made a contribution. See Special:Diff/20990639 Would it be a problem? --Uncitoyentalk 13:40, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
UncitoyenShouldn't be, I tried updating again and it can't save, seems to be alright. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 13:44, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
Some reason after automatically saved after the preview. I don't quite understand why such a thing happened. It doesn't show that I made any editing. I won't even preview it here anymore. I hope there is no problem with the display of the site. --Uncitoyentalk 13:54, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
As far as I can see there isn't, it's odd given I also previewed around then and nothing happened for me. Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 14:04, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]
There were no changes in your edit, so display should be fine in a few days. Sgd. —Hasley 14:04, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Probably something happened with of my browser. If I add or see something on this page, it should appear. I've made you busy for these problems for few days. Thank you all for your hard works. --Uncitoyentalk 14:09, 21 January 2021 (UTC)[]

Thanks for blocking that spammer posting junk to random pages (I had already ordered him, he continued, I have reverted all its modifications, and marked its creations for deletion (you did it). verdy_p (talk) 20:18, 24 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Hi, I request you to secure this page. Please lock it. SHEIKH (Talk) 09:48, 25 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Hello. Unless there is evidence of disruption, we usually do not lock user pages as they are protected through an abuse filter, so that only users with autopatrol status can edit others' pages. Sgd. —Hasley 13:29, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
But I want to lock my page. And its page can be locked at the user's request.— SHEIKH (Talk) 04:27, 26 March 2021 (UTC)[]

title blacklistEdit

Can I ask that the updated form of regex be temporary (3, 6, months?). I am not certain that it is reasonable to be an eternal addition to protect a form of a username that could reasonably have valid variations. [Note, not criticising, just asking].  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:15, 29 March 2021 (UTC)[]

Sure, will return to the previous regexp in a few months. Sgd. —Hasley 13:54, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

I have now blocked the whole /32 range for three months, as it showed abuse over quite a long period of time (see also the deleted contributions for the listed IPs). Feel free to narrow down the block if you think this is an overkill. A global block for this or a related range also seems in place. ~~~~

For the current vandal on Tegel's and Bbb23's talk page, I blocked the /17 range (/18 would not even have caught all instances of today's abuse btw) for six months (this one has been going on for over three years) and requested a global block. ~~~~

Hello! You deleted the discussion page of the title page due to vandalism. I believe that it needs to be recreated, because vandalism is a reason to protect, and not to delete the article.--Энциклопедист свободного контента (talk) 18:38, 19 July 2021 (UTC)[]

I am not sure what you are referring to. Would you care to explain? Sgd. —Hasley 20:15, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
You have deleted the title page reasoning page because of vandalism! I believe that it was possible to simply protect from editing only to auto-confirmed, and in extreme cases, to administrators.--Энциклопедист свободного контента (talk) 05:34, 20 July 2021 (UTC)[]

title blacklistEdit

... when adding user names it is best to put some restrictions in place, typically at least a starting \b as often there are legitimate alternatives. Noting that the page additions are case insensitive so it can blind one to matches. I did the boundary trick to the recent addition  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:18, 25 August 2021 (UTC)[]


Hi Hasley, I just want to ask why you deleted my userpage? Was it vandal? Did I do something wrong? 15:57, 15 September 2021 (UTC)[]

IP addresses should not have userspace pages. Please see Unregistered user: “Because IP addresses are sometimes dynamic, an IP-based user page can be impractical, and in fact it is disallowed on some wikis”. Note also that GlobalUserPage does not work with unregistered editors. Sgd. —Hasley 16:57, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
