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)[]

User:WhitePhosphorus/all-in-oneEdit

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

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)[]

中文維基學院擾亂性編輯Edit

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)[]

61.239.182.35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)[]

special:abusefilter/169Edit

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 https://2cyr.com/decode/?lang=en 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)[]
