Welcome to Meta! edit

Hello Hydriz, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing! mickit 13:38, 28 November 2010 (UTC)Reply

Thank You edit

I wanted to personally thank you for your help with translations during the fundraiser. I appreciate the work you put in, and we couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again - Deniz (WMF) 22:14, 26 January 2011 (UTC)Reply

Oh? Thanks for your remark! I personally thought my translations were not used. Thanks again! Hydriz 14:16, 27 January 2011 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for supporting Angika Wikipedia edit

Thank you for voting. Btw, we say Croatian, not Croation language :) --Anton 008 16:43, 27 March 2011 (UTC)Reply

Sure, no problem. I just hope that you will take care of your Wikinews well! Hydriz 12:26, 28 March 2011 (UTC)Reply

Global.js edit

Hi! I noticed your global.js is showing up in the speedy deletion category. Might be a good idea to use '{{delete' + '|Little or no meaning}}' in the code instead of putting the whole template in one string, so that MediaWiki doesn't think that the page is actually tagged for deletion. Jafeluv 12:46, 29 March 2011 (UTC)Reply

I did it. I hope you do not mind.   mickit 12:50, 29 March 2011 (UTC)Reply

Also, thanks for cleaning up after my stupidity. Jafeluv 13:37, 29 March 2011 (UTC)Reply

Dear Hydriz, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

user category on PL-Wiki edit

I hope you'll excuse me for editing your userpage on Pl-Wiki, where I changed your "Chinese traditional/simplified" fluency to just "Chinese fluency". It automatically generated categories, which in Polish were titled "simplified Chinese language, not script. Because mistaking script for language is all too common among people who do not know Chinese, we'd rather not have categories supporting such mistake. Thank you for your understanding!--Felis domestica (talk) 22:40, 14 January 2015 (UTC)Reply

Why did you revent me on steward requests/username changes if I wanted to request a change in my username--Anningia (talk) 10:37, 13 June 2015 (UTC)Reply

Global CSS/JS migration edit

Hello Hydriz. You have global scripts and styles in global.js and global.css, which you import using your local CSS/JS pages. Since August 2014, your global.js and global.css pages are loaded automatically on all wikis. Since you already import them yourself, you may experience script errors or tools being added twice. I can remove the global imports from your local pages using Synchbot (without touching other scripts). Do you want me to do that? —Pathoschild 23:24, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes please. Please delete User:Hydriz/*.js and User:Hydriz/*.css from all wikis (including closed wikis) except for en.wikipedia and simple.wikipedia. There are some wikis with additional pages (which are not the default vector.css/vector.js pages), but just delete them. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 06:36, 24 June 2015 (UTC)Reply
Sure. Do you want me to delete the non-skin CSS/JS pages like LiveClock.js too, or just the standard skin pages like chick.css? —Pathoschild 05:30, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
Yes, please delete those as well. Thanks! --Hydriz (talk) 05:42, 27 June 2015 (UTC)Reply
Done! You can see the log on your archive page. —Pathoschild 18:43, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

Internet Archive collections edit

Re [1], did you acquire the right to change collection of other users' items? If not, isn't it better to suggest writing directly? --Nemo 19:39, 27 August 2015 (UTC)Reply

If I remember correctly, I believe this right has always been available for trusted admins on the Archive. I have always been moving new WikiTeam items into the collection as well, likewise for the Wikimania archives. --Hydriz (talk) 22:55, 27 August 2015 (UTC)Reply

The Wikimedia Commons Gargle edit

Hi Hydriz,

Are you planning to continue saving Wikimedia Commons Grabs? --abián 11:24, 4 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

@Abián: It's planned, but it's not of highest priority right now. Are you able to help out? --Hydriz (talk) 15:27, 4 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
How much time would it take? --abián 19:54, 4 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
Probably quite long. The size of Wikimedia Commons increases exponentially and archiving the more recent files will take a long time to finish. --Hydriz (talk) 16:23, 7 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
I think I could help from time to time. What should I exactly do? --abián 21:34, 23 March 2016 (UTC)Reply
@Nemo bis: Do you have more details to provide on archiving the more recent files? --Hydriz (talk) 17:03, 24 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Abián alerted me on IRC of this discussion. There isn't much to say, just run from Tools Labs, then, then Some tweak might be needed, for instance I'm not sure "sql-s4" still works. Other than keeping an eye on disk usage and so on, there isn't much to do while the scripts run. The file can then be uploaded with your preferred method (usually I used ias3upload). Nemo 13:07, 26 March 2016 (UTC)Reply

Your scripts seem to work. I am too busy right now but, in a few weeks (~June), I will continue saving the Wikimedia Commons Grabs. Thanks for your comments. --abián 17:58, 13 April 2016 (UTC)Reply

About interwiki links edit

User script to access other watchlists edit

Hi Hydriz,

If you remember, you participated in the 2019 Community Wishlist Survey, including the discussion for reviving "Crosswatch" to allow for cross-wiki watchlists (Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Watchlists/Revive Crosswatch tool).

I sent you this MassMessage because I wanted to let you know that I have made a user script to make accessing your watchlists on different wikis easier, since for now that wishlist item has not been actioned.

The way it works is that, on any wiki, when you look at your watchlist, there is a button labeled "CA" that takes you to the CentralAuth page for you. There, when looking at your own information, each link to a wiki ("", "", "", etc.) is changed so that it links to your watchlist on that wiki.

If you are interested in using it, just add mw.loader.load('//'); to your global javascript page. This imports the code at m:User:DannyS712/Watchlist.js.

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

Thanks, --05:50, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Community Wishlist Survey 2020 edit


You are getting this message because you've previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey, in either the Wikisource or Wiktionary categories. I wanted to let you know that this year's survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until November 11. Unlike previous years, we are only accepting proposals for non-Wikipedia content projects with no dedicated teams (i.e., Wikibooks, Wiktionary, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity, Wikispecies, Wikivoyage, and Wikinews). You can learn more on the survey page.

You can vote on proposals from November 20 to December 2. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won't send out a separate reminder to you about that. We look forward to your participation. Thank you! IFried (WMF) (talk) 18:52, 22 October 2019 (UTC)Reply
