Enable the 2017 wikitext editor on Meta

Should we enable the 2017 wikitext editor as a beta feature or use it as the default editor in Meta? Cigaryno (talk) 11:15, 20 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I don't see a need to change the editor from how it works now, which allows for both visual and source. --Raidarr (talk) 13:11, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Its VisualEditor, but inside there is source editing. See mw:Special:MyLanguage/2017 wikitext editor for more information. Cigaryno (talk) 13:22, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
The 2017 wikitext editor could be enabled in Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-editing. Cigaryno (talk) 15:43, 27 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Question about bots

I will create a bot and I need to find a page to request bots to be approved. Cigaryno (talk) 10:33, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Cigaryno, bots approvals are requested at Meta:Requests for permissions. Thanks. Startus (talk) 12:51, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I created a bot password but the account still does not exist. Cigaryno (talk) 13:08, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]
A bot password is the password you use to sign into an account as an automated script, it's not a separate account. In order to create a separate bot account, you should use Special:CreateAccount while logged in. — Chrs (talk) 22:01, 21 June 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Move Tech:MediaWiki appserver to Tech:MediaWiki

I want to move Tech:MediaWiki appserver to Tech:MediaWiki? Muhammad Alfarezal (talk) 07:37, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

I'm not delete Tech namespace Muhammad Alfarezal (talk) 08:01, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
@Muhammad Alfarezal: why do you want to change it at all? If you do not have a clear reason, it's best to leave it alone. Preferably either a) you have a clear organizational reason, ie, category work, or b) you're in SRE (the group that benefits from anything in that namespace) and have practical reason to modify the setup. --Raidarr (talk) 12:16, 29 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
I'm moving page from Tech:MediaWiki appserver to Tech:MediaWiki. Muhammad Alfarezal (talk) 00:36, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Again, why? --Raidarr (talk) 01:06, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
X mark.svg Declined – not enough deletion. Muhammad Alfarezal (talk) 05:17, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Please explain what you are posting. --Raidarr (talk) 12:20, 30 July 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Unable to review wiki requests

I don't know if you guys know this, but I ran into an internal error when trying to approve or decline wiki requests. Is anybody else having this issue? DarkMatterMan4500 (talk) (contribs) 15:50, 10 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]


Hello. I come here to seek consensus on the Table of Contents of this page if it is better on the left or right side. I prefer the right side as it doesn't pollute the list and you don't need to scroll down to look at the list. — Pixial [Talk] 16:23, 10 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]
