I saw your post on Angela's talk page. If by mediawiki-wide you mean Wikimedia-wide, then of course you may put something up related only to your local wiki on your local sitenotice, just edit your local MediaWiki sitenotice page. Cbrown1023 talk 18:50, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Cbrown. I think by Sidebar, you mean the "Sitenotice" feature. You are correct about my typo: I meant Wikimedia-wide site notices. And still you have not answered my question. Is there a policy or guideline addressing this?Huji 19:17, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
Ah yes, I do mean that (and I have corrected it in my original post). There is no policy addressing that you may do it, but there also isn't one that says you cannot. The sitenotice is used for whatever the local wiki wants, or else the local users (admins) would not be able to edit it. So yes, you may change it and no I do not believe there is a policy or guideline for this. Cbrown1023 talk 20:52, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Re: Your dumpsEdit

Hi there. Although Wikipedia is a good source of information, it is misused by spammers who add links to their own sites. I regularly check the repository and download the latest dumps, I upload them into my own MySQL program, and execute several queries. One query returns the list of the most linked sites. While you can expect sites like to have a lot of links (the external links dump Wikipedia generates consider wikipedia own links as external links, that is why they are listed there), if you notice a strange foreign link that has a high rate (in example, a Russian or a Chinese site), it may indicate an attempt of spam. Also, it allows you to keep watch on sites that should not be really linked, like photobucket, imageshak, flickr, rapidshare, etc.

A second query returns the list of articles with the most external links. An article with 10 or 15 external links appears to be correct, however an article with 100 or more external links becomes suspicious. Spammers tend to add links to pages with already too many links, where they can defend the insertion with statements like "but X is already there, why not my link" or "there are over 100 links now, adding another won't damage the article". In articles about cities, in example, it is common to list local radios, newspapers, parks, etc. Sometimes, people create a table with the name of the place plus an external link to the site. However, it is always preferred to link to an open directory (a site specially designed to hold external links based on a criteria), or to create an article about the radio or newspaper, and add the external link there. Also, sometimes people don't know about the references tag (Cite/Cite.php), so they add the same external links several times through the article as reference, in these cases they should be replaced with a single reference used multiple times.

These two lists are community focused: since I don't know which links are preferred in each community, I create the dumps and let them check and make their own conclusions. A site may not be useful in a Wikipedia, but may be pretty useful for another.

Finally, I execute two queries aimed at finding spambot pages. Some spambots are bugged, and create pages ending with / (in example, Test/ instead of Test) or send a wrong query to create the page, creating titles like W/index.php or W/w/index.php, or even /wiki/Forum. I generate two lists, one of very probable spambot pages that include index.php and /wiki/ in their title, and another of probable spambot pages that end with slash. These pages should be manually checked to see whether they have valid content or not, and if not, tagged for speedy deletion. In your case, I found fa:User:ReyBrujo/Dumps/20070427#Very probable spambot pages, I found this page that is created but has no content (note that I usually wikilink the articles, but if it fails, I also add the article id to manually find it). In this case, it is not a spambot page (it was created by a valid user), but has a wrong format and should be deleted. Some wikis have a higher chance of getting these pages (in example, the english one has a lot of them every month). Most of the time I review the pages myself and tag them for deletion, but I have little time lately to do that.

The dumps are aimed at spamming. I generate them for every Wikipedia (User:ReyBrujo/Dump statistics), along with stats like page count, external link count, variation between dumps, list interesting cases (like the spammer who added external links to stub templates to effectively spread them into thousands of articles) and list some tasks I find (like external links that are dead and should be removed from pages, point spam pages I cannot tag for deletion, etc). As I said, the lists are aimed at the communities, and if I don't report them is because I sometimes have a hard time finding a community place to advertise (that is why I am lately pointing to my meta file instead). If they are not needed (I create dumps even for very small wikipedias that may have no problems), just tell me and I will remove it from my list until they are needed. No big problem with me, while in the beginning I did everything by hand, nowadays I run several scripts that do all the processing for me, so I won't be offended :-)

Hope this clarifies the dump purposes. There is no fixed schedule, I just generate them whenever a new dump is uploaded (sometimes I get backlogged and generate two or three dump processings at once), which is usually once every 2 months for the English, one every month for every big (Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese, Finnish, etc) one, and between 2 and 3 times per month for the smallest ones. -- ReyBrujo 18:43, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

This was a long, complete, and highly valued answer. Thanks a lot :) Huji 20:40, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: ToolserverEdit

Hey Huji, you might like to take a look at Toolserver for instructions on getting your own account on the toolserver :) Cheers, Tangotango 16:30, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Well I found that page later on, after I asked you for help. Thank you anyways. At least, your comment made me correct an incorrect date on that page :) Huji 16:47, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

panic at ar wikiEdit

Hi Huji, just read the english bit here. if you read my posts here, you may know the reason. don't want to get you involved, but reading about others' mistakes can be useful, and fun. khodafez. --Azdiyy 09:34, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Me at Farsi WikipediaEdit

Absolutely! I don't mind at all.:)--The Joke النكتة‎ 09:35, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

It looks very nice now..thanks ..I noticed that farsi for 'joke' is the same in english..right?--The Joke النكتة‎ 10:13, 25 May 2007 (UTC)
Well, that Farsi word for joke, is simply imported from English. Huji 11:33, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Arabic arbcomEdit

Hi Huji, a few days ago you added the Arabic Wikipedia arbcom to Arbitration Committee. Is it active and running, or is it still being tested out to make sure arwiki needs it/thinks it is the best solution? I wouldn't want that page to mistakenly list it as active if it is not yet, and since it has only been around since February and has less than a dozen edits I want to make sure. Picaroon (Talk) 18:59, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

Well I thought it was as active as a newborn ;) but I will check this out and let you know. Huji 19:16, 27 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes. it is active and you know the Arabic Wikipedia currently don't have the same number of active contributors of the English the possibility of using it everyday is low compared to the English one. Aren't a dozen edits also mean that there aren't problems currently?..don't worry, if it isn't functioning, I will de-list it myself. Salam.--The Joke النكتة‎ 19:57, 27 May 2007 (UTC)

We talked on IRC, feel free to ask anything else :)--The Joke النكتة‎ 11:54, 14 June 2007 (UTC)

I`m in your waitEdit

hi dear hojjat, I`m so glad to meet you here. If you have any work that I could do it, I`m in your wait. be happy and have rest.--Gordafarid 12:28, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

Well I thought you said you didn't know English! :) Huji 16:54, 16 June 2007 (UTC)
take it easy! I said that I don`t know as well as farsi. then that`s a strategy for a reminding to rebel sysop that we`re in and must transfer the information with farsi language, not english. be happy,--Gordafarid 18:11, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
Fine. I appreciate your multi-lingual efforts :) Huji 22:43, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I answer you about your regard in my talk page, see it and guide me if you can. thanks,--Gordafarid 23:30, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Byrialbot at fawikiEdit

Hi Huji

Can you please help with a question about the farsi wikipedia. I would like to run my interwiki bot (fa:User:Byrialbot). Where should ask for a bot flag, and may I start using it or do I have to wait for permission? Thank you, Byrial 18:25, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

You can start using it on Farsi Wikipedia, but with a low load of edits. We will review them, and as you request on this page, your bot will be granted a flag hopefully. Huji 22:36, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I little late thank you for your advice. I have requested now. Byrial 11:05, 20 June 2007 (UTC)

مشكلة الصورEdit

A fellow took care of the problem before I even think :) the beauty of talk pages :)..I appreciate your help..don't know how I was missing that..if you find any other problems, let me know immediately (yep, I will use you :P) :)--The Joke النكتة‎ 13:07, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

I just did :D ...and I wish to write it in farsi --The Joke النكتة‎ 13:44, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Great job! By the way, it has been a long time from our last visit on IRC. Huji 14:33, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Thanks the way..that logo wasn't a is the cnn in arabic..check the official website --The Joke النكتة‎ 12:17, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Yes it was not a derivative. But I just wanted to do an "overkill" and prevent a common mistake of substituting an image with a derivative. LOL. Thanks again. Huji 12:56, 6 July 2007 (UTC)


Yeah, I saw it on RC or somepage like that, and I had a read through, and corrected some links. It's a great tutorial, very useful. TheFearow 01:00, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Fa wiki CUEdit

I am actually about to write a second midterm (we have to write two for every subject), so I have still been busy. :( I promise I will look at the results as soon as I can. I sent them to Pathoschild too, so you can bother him if you urgently need them. I don't really want a pony; I just ask for one to be cute. :P --Shanel 17:23, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

Request for CheckUser information processedEdit

Hello Huji. Your request for CheckUser information has been granted and archived (see result). —{admin} Pathoschild 20:46:15, 10 November 2007 (UTC)


Hi Huji! I heard from Bastique you are interested in helping translation. Have you visited Translation, our introduction to Wikimedia translation? If it doesn't answer your question, or just you'd like to say hi to someone on meta, feel free to contact me : Cheers, --Aphaia 16:51, 12 November 2007 (UTC)


dear huji i need you help and guides on fa.wikinews .and by the way if it is possible copy your monobook for me here.--Mardetanha 21:51, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm afraid I don't have enough time to help with another project. As I'm not an admin on Meta, I cannot touch your monobook. Cheers, Huji 15:12, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

oh thanks as matter of fact actully i don't mean you to help me. you have good knowldege of wiki . just chek did i followed procedures correctly or not? --Mardetanha 20:09, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

I haven't been involved in the procedure of setting up a new wiki, so I'm not a knowledgeable person in that field. Sorry, but I think I'm of no help in this case. Huji 13:59, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
anyway thanks--Mardetanha 03:24, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Mazanderani's Local nameEdit

Hi Dear Hujjat, Could you please change the local name for mazanderani (code:mzn) from current مَزِرونی to مازرون گیلکی or مازرونی ? It would be appreciated --Ali 19:53, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

You need to specify what you want more precisely. If you want the name of the mz wikipedia to be changed, this cannot be done by me but I can request it to be done for you :) If you think a different thing, I'll be glad to help. Huji 20:21, 25 December 2007 (UTC)
Could you specify where it could be requested ? Because it may be subject to change later, Since there is inconsistency among dialects, Some refer it as Tapuri, some gileki, some mazaniki, some mazeruni, some mazeni, But in present time i am sure that it must not be مَزِرونی,, I prefer to be مازرونی. Please try your best and i am awaiting for the results. --Ali 15:33, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
It should be requsted on BugZilla. Please make sure there is a consensus in your community before making the request. Also, it is a good idea to link to the consensus page on your wiki, in the request you make in BugZilla, so future visitors can find it more easily. Huji 19:10, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
Happy New Year! Hujjet Jan, a request exists there, but no reply received, I am not sure if i could be able to getting response there. --Ali 23:40, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Can you send the link to me here, so I may follow it up? Huji 12:22, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Follow this Link, Thank You--Ali 08:52, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
And what is the final decision about the name?! (That discussion was really confusing). Huji 22:28, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
Hey Hujjat Jan, I know you can edit this page, I guess the name below is perfect. Although i would like to having name for Gileki but the fact is it will be too missy when we have interwiki name with 3 different names.

مازرون / تپری

Thank You! --Ali 07:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Persian translationEdit


سیاست‌گذاری های ترجمه‌ی فارسی کجا و چطوری تبیین می‌شه؟ مثلا کجا تعیین می‌شه که کجا نیم‌فاصله گذاشته بشه یا اینکه «خانه‌ی» نوشته بشه یا «خانهء» و یا ...

و احتمالا همونطور که می‌دونید تمامی «هٔ» هایی که در متون فارسی به کار برده شده‌اند، اصولا حرف فارسی محسوب نمی‌شن.

ضمن اینکه برخی جزییات دارای مشکل است که کم کم برطرف خواهم کرد.

اگر خواستین ممنون می‌شم از طریق ایمیل من یا همینجا با هم صحبت کنیم.

ممنون :)


اول این که از شما دعوت می‌کنم که حساب کاربری بسازید، و هر بار که پیغام می‌فرستید به دنبال آن امضا بزنید (با وارد کردن ~~~~ در پایان نوشتهٔ خودتان).

در پاسخ به سوال شما: مبنا مصوبات فرهنگستان زبان و ادب فارسی است. به همین خاطر، نه «خانه‌ی» و نه «خانهء» درست نیستند. نگارش درست کلمه به صورت «خانهٔ» است؛ دقت کنید که در نگارش صحیح، ابتدا حرف «ه» و بعد علامت «ٔ» وارد می‌شوند. (منظور این که به اشتباه از نویسهٔ دیگری که به صورت هٔ دیده می‌شود اما از دو نویسهٔ جدا تشکیل نشده استفاده نکنید.)

اطلاعات بیشتر را در fa:ویکی‌پدیا:دستور خط، fa:ویکی‌پدیا:فارسی‌نویسی و fa:ویکی‌پدیا:خط فارسی را پاس بداریم بیابید.

موفق باشید.

Huji 09:32, 2 March 2008 (UTC)


ممنون از پاسختون و لینک‌های خوبی که دادید :) من برای فارسی کردن تاریخ مدیا‌ویکی به سمتش حمله‌ور شدم! بعد از اینکه فارسی کردم، به هر حال، خبر رسید که در نسخهٔ آتی تقویم فارسی پشتیبانی می‌شه و ... در همین حین با عبارات مشکوک توی ویکی برخورد کردم که بعد از تحقیق رسیدم به شما! به عنوان مثال کلمهٔ «یک‌شنبه» و «پنجشنبه» و ...

به هر حال خوشحال می‌شم بتونم کمکی بکنم :) البته بیشتر دوست داشتم کار تخصصی‌تری برای توسعه امکانات فارسی انجام بدم تا ترجمه، اما شاید متعاقبا ایده‌ای ایجاد شد. (احتمالا با توجه به مواردی که از فعالیت‌های من می‌دونید، در جریان هستید که من پی‌اچ‌پی کار می‌کنم)

در ضمن، من آدرس رای‌نامهٔ شما رو نیافتم. اگر امکانش هست با لینکی که دادم تماس بگیرید.

موفق باشید.

Hi, I remember you had an access to some statistical data of Persian Wikipedia. Could you help me understand some confusing data:

According to fa:ویژه:Statistics Persian Wikipedia have 94,790 registered user Now

If you summarize numbers of New Wikipedians in this chart you will see the number of Wikipedians must be 1,505 (until Feb'08) Norwegian Wikipedia is in deferent situation 3,789 Now Registere Users and 4,638 SUM of New Wikipedians (until Feb'08). Is there any possible mistake in source code? (like using a persian number character as a Number), or any kind of trolling? Please if you fined out the answer leave a message in my Persian user page

Regards. --Mmehdi.g 02:44, 30 May 2008 (UTC)

Hello. There are more than 90,000 registered accounts on Persian Wikipedia (from the first day till now). 1,505 accounts were created in February 2008; that is 1,505 out of 90,000. So what you said is wrong: it is not that 1,505 accounts were created until February 2008; it is that 1,505 accounts were created in February 2005 (not January, not March, only February). Huji 19:21, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

There is 2 different column in fa stats chart (Total:A, New:B) you should see. I summarize both in excel


Where is 94,790 ? --Mmehdi.g 19:47, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Oh! I totally misunderstood your question, and the statistics! Here is the answer: The number 1505, is the count of "Wikipedians" not users; it seems that Wikipedians are defined as user with at least 10 edits from the date of account creation. Hope this answers your question. Huji 14:39, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
Thank you. I read that on top of other pages of after this discussion. I gathered some stats analysis about users and admins of persian wikipedia in this page. I will be happy if you could join us after your wikibreak. Mmehdi.g 10:54, 4 June 2008 (UTC)


Dear huji you have been very helpful here and all where so i think it is good time for you to take this position in meta . so i nominate you for bureaucratship and i hope you accept it.--Mardetanha talk 13:29, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

This will be a pleasure :) Huji 13:42, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
But please notice that the regular way to get bureaucrtship here is to wait for 6 months, after becoming an admin. It doesn't say you can't get bureaucratship by nomination, but don't get sad if they refused your nomination. Huji 13:51, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
I've deleted the RFB page, as it's not necessary. While I think Huji would make a good bcrat, he's not been an admin for 6 months yet so can't be promoted. Cheers, Majorly talk 15:43, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

حذف دسته جمعی کاربران افغان از ویکی پدیای فارسیEdit

سلام دوست عزیز. من مهدی خراسانی هستم. کابران افغانی که از یک شبکه اينترنتی با یک دستگاه رایانه جهت ویرایش مطالب خود استفاده می کردند، متاسفانه به صورت دسته جمعی حذف شدند! البته در این مورد توضیحات کافی به مدیران ویکی داده شد. اما شوربختانه آنها با دیکتاتور مابی، به هیچ یک از خواسته های منطقی ما گوش فرا ندادند که هیچ، بلکه ما را توهین نیز نموده و به ما تهمت تقلب هم بستند. حتی ما به آنها پیشنهاد کردیم که کاربران ما حاضر هستند با شما تلفنی صحبت کنند، اما آنها بدلایلی خاصی سیاست افغان ستیزی را پیشه کردند. موفق باشید. -- Mehdi Khorasani 15:45, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!Edit

Deutsch | English | español | français | italiano | 한국어 | Nederlands | português | русский | العربية | edit

An offering for our new administrator from your comrades... (our budget is smaller than Commons)

Huji, congratulations! You now have the rights of administrator on Meta. Please take a moment to read the Meta:Administrators page and watchlist related pages (in particular Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat, and Meta:Requests for deletion, but also Talk:Spam blacklist and Talk:Interwiki map), before launching yourself into page deletions, page protections, account blockings, or modifications of protected pages. The majority of the actions of administrators can be reversed by the other admins, except for history merges which must thus be treated with particular care.

A tip: add this page Meta:Administrators' discussion index to your watchlist, it tracks the latest activity to various sections of many of the important pages.

Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-admin @ You may find Commons:Guide to adminship to be useful reading although it doesn't always completely apply here at Meta.

Please also check or add your entry to Meta:Administrators#List_of_administrators and the Template:List of administrators.
