504 Timeout for copyvios.toolforge.orgEdit

Hello MusikAnimal,

the tool currently only returns 504. If I'm not too impatient, could you check this? Thank you. Best wishes, --Leserättin (talk) 10:10, 11 February 2022 (UTC)

Global block:

Hey, this IP address appears to have been blocked by you recently. At least, I was editing from an internet cafe and then got a blocked message mentioning you. This IP address belongs to a wifi portal provider used in coffee shops in the UK and apparently has 22 thousand access points (see the recent discussion here) Do we intend to block thousands of coffee shops and pubs in the UK? I tend to exclusively edit in coffee shops (at least during the day). Talpedia (talk) 14:50, 27 March 2022 (UTC)

This range has all the red flags of vulnerable to abuse, and I see there was abuse that led me to blocking this particular IP. Our tooling gave no indication this was anything but a webhost, hence why I did a hard block. Now knowing it is in fact not a webhost, and the abuse has long since passed, I have unblocked the IP. However I can't guarantee that future blocks won't happen (from others or myself), especially with all these mixed signals in the WHOIS reports… anyways thanks for contacting me, and my apologies for the inconvenience.

User talk:MusikAnimal/Archive 1#Namespace restriction ignored in autoedits-contributions?Edit

UPD (see MediaWiki talk:XTools-AutoEdits.json#AFCRHS @ enwiki): It appears that even autoedits itself ignores the restriction unless a namespace not listed is specified. ~~~~

CWS Current projects (translation)Edit

Thank you pushing CWS Editions_and_projects for translation. Could you instruct me why it seems that I can't translate en-ja the section Current projects  ? Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 07:03, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

@Omotecho: What do you mean by “it seems you can’t translate”? If I open the translation interface, all untranslated bits show up, I can open them and I can also type in some text (I didn’t try to actually save them, since I can’t translate into Japanese). —Tacsipacsi (talk) 23:29, 3 July 2022 (UTC)
Case closed. @Tacsipacsi, hi! Thank you for jumping in, and my bad, it works!
Gosh my brain should have been cooked with 35+ Celsius/70+% humidity outside... Appreciate your rescue dispatch this time very much. Cheers, -- Omotecho (talk) 00:34, 4 July 2022 (UTC)

Quarry queryEdit

Hello, MusikAnimal,

If I wanted to change https://quarry.wmcloud.org/query/59028 to look at my own edits, which field would I change and what identifying information would I be adding? I saw you put together this query for another editor on the Feedback page. Thanks for your technical knowledge and help! Liz (talk) 20:37, 19 July 2022 (UTC)

@Liz I've updated the query to accept a username (see the part that says WHERE actor_name = 'Liz'). Note also the time constraint with AND rev_timestamp BETWEEN 20200101000000 AND 20201231125959. If you don't want that, fork the query and comment out that line. Best, MusikAnimal talk 15:30, 20 July 2022 (UTC)
