    Edit request in MediaWiki:Grant-usedatadumpapi

    This grant was recently added and it's currently using the default interface message. If an admin could put "Create, view, and delete dumps", that would be great. This interface message is only used in the grant's entry at Special:ListGrants. OrangeStar (talk) 21:26, 22 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Please ignore, I'm going to add it the proper way. OrangeStar (talk) 15:19, 23 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Protected edit request

    In the page Oversight there is a typo in the "Local permission" section in the sentence saying "...and that candidate must also fulfil all requirements laid out in this section." The word "fulfil" should be changed to "fulfill". Kristiannumber1 (talk) 20:53, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    I already made a thread about the typo on Talk:Oversight. Thank you for pointing that out in your original thread. Tali64³ (talk) 21:07, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Protect User talk:Airtransat236 from anonymous editing

    The talk page of a user named Airtransat236 has been subject to vandalism by an IP editor dating back several months. Each time their vandalism has been removed, they add more. It seems like the only way to stop it is to protect that page so that only logged-in users can edit it. Tali64³ (talk) 19:53, 29 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Also going to add that this was an issue on TestWiki recently, and the IP range(s) have now been blocked. If a global block could be implemented on the IP range (GS/Steward), that would be much appreciated. Thanks - BrandonWM (talkcontributionsglobalrights) 20:12, 29 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    @Tali64³ @Airtransat236, I have protected the page for 3 weeks for excessive vandalism, after that time if problem continues, further action will be considered, including but not limited to implementing abuse filters. Zppix (Meta | talk to me) 20:05, 31 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    Hello there. These IP adresses has been also vanadalising and typing nonsense my talk pages on Wikimedia wikis too.
    But when you revert their edit, they will undo your edit in the same day or later.
    When you block one of those IPs, they will vandalise their talk pages. Airtransat236 (talk) 16:30, 3 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Article body way off to the right after 1.39 upgrade

    After the 1.39 upgrade, the article body is way off to the right. I believe this code in MediaWiki:Vector.css is causing the problem:

    .mw-content-container, .mw-article-toolbar-container {
        max-width: none;
        margin-left: 11.5em;

    Disabling the margin-left property with Inspect Element fixes the issue, so an interface administrator should remove it. Tali64³ (talk) 00:50, 22 January 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

    Report AbuseFilter error filtering


    I recently discovered by accident that one of my translations was being filtered by AbuseFilter errors when I was translating the FAQ page, and it told me "Blanking and semi-blanking". (My edits and a before and after comparison are attached below)
