Autoundo scriptEdit

Hello. Is it possible for you to add another "prepend delete|spam" to your undo script? Minorax (talk) 03:46, 26 February 2020 (UTC)

@Minorax:   Done --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 11:53, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
Thank you :) Minorax (talk) 13:10, 26 February 2020 (UTC)


Hi man, sometimes all-in-one does not autopopulate the username field. I find this is most often when the wiki is non-English or uses arabic script. Any ideas on how this can be fixed? Love this tool! Its my most used - I hit every spambot with it. ~riley (talk) 22:46, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

@~riley: Sorry I cannot reproduce this, for example this guy on arwiki. If you are able to reproduce this please provide the contribution link. Auto completion will only work on Special:Contributions/Example or Special:Logs/Example etc. pages and the script uses the username provided by mediawiki (search "wgRelevantUserName") so if this is really an issue maybe we shall go to phabricator. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 03:26, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
I will come back when I can reproduce it! :) On a related note, packages break when using inf. I experienced this previously and Vermont did today; see Special:Diff/19995059. ~riley (talk) 04:25, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
Figured out the problem - it is when I am clicking all-in-one on user pages. I noticed it was only happening for spambots and thats mostly because I was opening up spam in userspace. Can auto completion support be added for userspace? ~riley (talk) 04:32, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
@~riley: Done. Also works on user talk page though rarely needed I guess. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 04:42, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
Fantastic! Any idea whats going on with inf? ~riley (talk) 04:55, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

Your user pageEdit

Sorry for Hamish went stupid again on your user page. --Hamish 16:49, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

Over-qualified CSS selectorsEdit

My apologies that this message is just available in English.

Over-qualified CSS selectors of portals in Wikimedia skins have been changed. div#p-personal, div#p-navigation, div#p-interaction, div#p-tb, div#p-lang, div#p-namespaces or div#p-variants are now all removed of the div qualifier, as in for example it is #p-personal, #p-navigation …. This is so the skins can use HTML5 elements. Your gadgets or user styles seem to use them and you will have to update them. You can read more in phab:T252467.

all-in-one blocking emailEdit

Can I ask why you don't allow revoking email access from IPs? Its under "some block settings are not applicable" - I think email is always applicable. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 00:14, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: Thanks for pointing that out. It was my misunderstanding and I fixed it. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 04:59, 29 September 2020 (UTC)


白磷君好。最近維基學院出現了一組擾亂性用戶,創建無任何來源的百科內容,被我提刪後和警告後屢次移除刪除模板。中文維基學院的管理員都不太活躍,故希望您協助。此外,zhwiki LTA:X43亦在學院持續進行擾亂性編輯,請協助處理。感謝!--LuciferianThomasTalk 05:27, 30 January 2021 (UTC)持續在維基學院進行擾亂性編輯,早前Kuon還在的時候沒封但保護了其中一個被破壞的條目,現在在另一相關條目再次進行破壞,請幫忙處理,感謝!--LuciferianThomasTalk 07:48, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
2001:B011:FA02:3FC6:8181:C936:B31B:38E9持續刪除條目內容。 LuciferianThomasTalk 11:26, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
@LuciferianThomas: 谢谢提报,近期事务繁忙,迟复为歉。如果是像刚才这种大规模破坏,也可以来 freenode #wikimedia-gs 发送 !gs <请求> 炸我(和其他在线 GS)一下,如果回到电脑旁边会及时处理。 --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 11:51, 14 February 2021 (UTC)
好的,感謝!另外,v:zh:全明星運動會/第一季v:zh:全明星運動會/第二季在前幾天亦友IP屢勸不改加入離題內容,能否連同v:zh:全明星運動會三個條目進行半保護兩週(主要因為節目第二季在28日播放,不想影響其他用戶進行編輯)? LuciferianThomasTalk 11:58, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

Taxobox template problem at mni.wikipediaEdit

Hi, can you give some suggestion or help in correcting alignment of this taxobox as in w:mni:ꯀꯕꯣꯀꯩ template and the removing the annoying "colspan-2 ..." at top and bottom of templateLuwanglinux (talk) 18:29, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

@Luwanglinux: sorry for the delayed response. I fixed by creating this template there, copied from enwiki. You may need to localize the documentation. Note that the template could not be visited normally other than using url like /w/index.php?title=ꯇꯦꯝꯄ꯭ꯂꯦꯠ:;. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 14:15, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
@WhitePhosphorus thanks a lot I will localize the documentationLuwanglinux (talk) 14:46, 26 March 2021 (UTC)

Congratulations, Dear Administrator!Edit

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

Congratulations, WhitePhosphorus! You now have the rights of an administrator on Meta-Wiki. 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. Please feel free to join us on IRC: #wikimedia-adminconnect. 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. You're also allowed to subscribe the metawiki admins private mailing list. Again, congratulations and welcome to the team. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:33, 22 March 2021 (UTC)


Would you please undo your recent edits to the filter. That sort of regex is better in Title blacklist—which is truly global—where I have been adding and managing these. This is the first time that I have seen an auto-confirmed account make these edits. the issue is bigger than you may know, and one I have been addressing for months. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:08, 1 April 2021 (UTC)

  Done, diff for archival purposes. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 03:02, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
And I have been guided to to look at how the Windows-1251 coded titles are being used to circumvent the blacklist for their Cyrillic equivalents. I have started adding some, and hope that we are able to round up more.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:56, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

On a question you hadEdit

Hi WhitePhosphorus. The answer to this question [1] of yours is here [2]. ǁǁǁ ǁ Chalk19 (talk) 22:54, 1 August 2021 (UTC)

Hello, abt the Author Request delectionEdit

Hi, I am Akai. I want to ask, if the significant contribution is that User:特克斯特and Z423x5c6, and they also agree to use Author request to delete this page(It is only a personal talk, and I find that it is a bit trouble), then can I put G6 in this page?Detective Akai (talk) 06:18, 11 October 2021 (UTC)

Akai 你好,我看到你是粵語使用者,所以我就用中文回覆了。如果他們都同意的話是可以刪除的,但是這樣的話我還是建議透過刪除請求,請他們在那裡表達意見同意刪除,因為快速刪除方針並沒有涵蓋這種狀況(Unneeded talk 是指主頁面已經刪除或不存在的討論頁)。 --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 02:50, 12 October 2021 (UTC)
好吧,謝謝解答。Detective Akai (talk) 16:10, 19 October 2021 (UTC)

Global auto-undoEdit

猫老师您好,今天遇到一个情况,当用户被全域锁定之后,rv页面上并没有显示如“xxx locked, stop stalking”的字样,希望您可以协助。Stang 18:34, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

@Stang: 全域锁定的 $logParams 格式最近被改了,所以用来检查是否锁定的代码不工作了。我已经更新了代码,但毕竟没权限测试,所以还是麻烦下次目标被锁定的时候留意一下是否正常。 --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 15:12, 24 November 2021 (UTC)

Request for local IP block exemptionEdit

I would like to request IP block exemption for User:VChang (WMF) on Meta-Wiki (and maybe a global one too?) here, as I could not find a dedicated page for this :( He needs the right because of security-related concerns. —— Eric LiuTalk 12:33, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

Local IPBE granted. For GIPBE he can request on SRGP or contact stewards --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 15:54, 14 December 2021 (UTC)
Thanks so much WhitePhosphorus and Eric, much appreciatedǃ --VChang (WMF) (talk) 08:45, 15 December 2021 (UTC)

commonswiki customization of Global auto-undoEdit

猫老师您好,有客户反应commonswiki上速删模板应该采用{{speedy}},因此希望您可以进行适当的修改。同时希望您可以一并修改(local) auto-undo在commonswiki的表现。非常感谢!Stang 21:47, 22 December 2021 (UTC)

  Done --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 14:47, 31 December 2021 (UTC)


新年快乐。希望您可以现实充实,本站愉快。 Stang 16:33, 31 December 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

猫老师您好,后端似乎挂了,劳烦检查一下,非常感谢。Stang 13:00, 17 February 2022 (UTC)

  Done,之前设的备用定时脚本没工作,现在好了。 WhitePhosphorus (talk) 16:07, 17 February 2022 (UTC)

似乎依旧存在问题,现在的数据似乎停在了4个小时之前。Stang 17:00, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
贵站机器 k8s 的 container 环境有问题,在外面直接用 venv 里面的 sqlite 版本就够高,能跑我写的一个 query,到容器里面就 syntax error 了。先把 container 的 image 改成 py 3.9 看看,到时候再研究一下。 WhitePhosphorus (talk) 01:24, 18 February 2022 (UTC)


猫老师您好,希望给一条龙服务和 (global) AutoUndo加上id,这样改颜色什么的方便一些。非常感谢。Stang 22:17, 22 February 2022 (UTC)


Stalking Mypetclinic
New edit: Mypetclinic, revision id 20319802, on page Käyttäjä:Mypetclinic@fiwiki

Mypetclinic is global (b)locked, stop stalking.

咱不确定这是不是预期行为。个人看来应该是在lock的瞬间有编辑的话,同样需要执行回退。Stang 13:34, 24 February 2022 (UTC)

active_sysops (2)Edit

猫老师您好,后端又一次爆炸了。您的crontab没起作用似乎?Stang 18:18, 7 March 2022 (UTC)

哭哭,又一次爆炸了,要不您给个access咱自己重启如何。 Stang 03:34, 25 March 2022 (UTC)
感觉maint.sh似乎输出的东西有一些变化(比如咱不知道她是不是跑完了)?另外管管数据更新似乎卡在了两天前。Stang 19:38, 20 May 2022 (UTC)

Translations:Community Resources/COVID-19 Notice/13/qqqEdit

I don't think this "translation documentation" page provides anything documentational. NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh 02:14, 24 May 2022 (UTC)

@NguoiDungKhongDinhDanh: Thanks, you are right, I didn't notice that page is a translation documentation. Deleted just now. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 02:16, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
