Wiki Request 14010 and Meta translation administrator[edit source]

Hi HeartsDo,

We've interacted a bit on Meta and on Public Test Wiki, so it's nice to finally be introduced. Anyway, regarding your above-captioned wiki request, it's been created. Perfect purpose, scope, and topic for your French language wiki (not that I'm surprised by this, given you are an experienced wiki creator). I should also let you know that RhinosF1 did tell me when I asked him that, as wiki creators, we can just create our wiki(s) directly using Special:CreateWiki, if we wish, or we can use Special:RequestWiki, as you've done, if we prefer or want another wiki creator to peer review our request. Either option, though, is completely fine, so just wanted to make sure I advised you about that as you may not have been aware.

Separately, it's wonderful to see you on active patrolling duty here on Meta again and, in particular, noted your actively translating existing Meta pages. Meta currently has no translation administrators, which isn't necessarily a big deal actually since those tools are incorporated into the administrator toolkit. Nevertheless, that role provides access to useful translation administration tools and, as part of my outreach efforts as a Meta administrator, am currently reaching out to our most active translators who seem to be experienced with the Translate extension doing translations. It will, among other things, allow you to mark updated content pages for translation, and it will also allow you to prepare untranslated pages for translation using various special pages. It won't allow you to delete translated subpages or mark/prepare pages protected at administrator level of page protection, but is nonetheless useful.

If you're interested, let me know by way of a reply to this message and {{ping}} me to grab my attention, and I'll grant that user right to you. If you do end up taking me up on the offer, a couple guidelines that I used when I was a translation administrator:

  1. Check Special:Contributions/FuzzyBot after marking an updated page for translation or preparing a page for translation, to see when the system maintenance bot account has completed your request, so as not to add too many requests for the jobrunner to process; and,
  2. Don't mark the noticeboards or talk pages for translation, given how frequently they are updated.

Anyway, thanks again, and look forward to hearing back from you, particularly on the latter. :)

@Dmehus: Hi, about your proposition for the translation administrator group, I am interested !
PS: Is good to known that is ok to create a wiki directly without pass the process of requesting, but I prefer pass it for have a second opinion :p
HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 15:54, 30 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@HeartsDo:  Done. Oh, that's great to hear you volunteer to help with translation administration, since you're so active there. By the way, @Reception123: and I formalizing a guidance essay on guidelines for new patrollers, and you will be among the first (if not the first) patroller added to the new group. We just want to have our guidelines and notification template in place first. Dmehus (talk) 16:47, 30 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Patroller granted - 2020-08-31[edit source]

Hi, HeartsDo. An administrator on Meta has granted you the patroller user group permission, which gives you the ability to patrol recent changes and new pages of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either autopatrolled or an administrator. In addition, this group also means that your edits are autopatrolled, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active administrators, that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an administrator or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a rollbacker, of course), you should always first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.

  1. When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in Main and Meta namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (~~~~). If they have not, you should add {{unsigned}} by substitution ({{subst:Unsigned|username|00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)}}), where username is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the diff page. As a best practice, you should also link to the diff in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the diff-permalink user script from line 5 of this page into either your (a) common.js or (b) global.js page (the latter applying globally on all Miraheze wikis);
  2. When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the correct noticeboard. If it is not, you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the diff page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]], where ###### represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  3. Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a best practice, take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per WP:LISTGAP;
  4. If something requires deletion, you can add {{delete}} to the top of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  5. If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  6. If in doubt whether something requires remediation or not, patrol it, and then ask any administrator via their user talk page or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard if any further action needs to be taken.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 04:45, 31 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Special:MyLanguage and "tvar" tags[edit source]

Hello there, could you implement Special:MyLanguage in tvar tags on FAQ when you have got the time, it's quite a long page tbh. So no need for right now if you're busy in school :) --Raltseye (talk) 23:33, 12 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Raltseye: Hi, FAQ page is protected at sysop level so I can not do this, but I will left a message on the Administrators' noticeboard ! HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 05:51, 13 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, thanks! --Raltseye (talk) 22:26, 13 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Small change to the RequestWiki UI[edit source]


Just letting you know that there's been a small change to the RequestWiki UI this morning and you can check the new steps to take here.

Mainly wanted to note that you can leave the reason field blank if you are approving a request, as it will automatically link to the request.

Also would like to note that declining is now also done via the "Handle request" section rather than a separate one.

My Wiki[edit source]

Hello, can you help me set up the logo on my Wiki here. I can grant you rights temporarily to help me set it up. Cheers --Synoman Barris (talk) 07:30, 11 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Synoman Barris: Hi, you can read this for setup your logo. But if you don't make it, come on IRC and ping me ! HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 08:05, 11 October 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rollbacker granted[edit source]

Hi HeartsDo,

Thank you for the excellent work you've been doing as one of Meta's most active non-administrator patrollers, as well as for your work as a translation administrator and wiki creator.

As you routinely revert blatant vandalism, spam, and out of scope content creation not only on Meta but on Miraheze Commons and Miraheze Template Wiki as well, not to mention you've been a Mirahezian for a long time and are very trusted, I thought you could use the rollbacker user group, which I have now granted you. For most things, Twinkle's pseudo-rollback and undo should continue to be used, but, similar to my granting conditions to Universal Omega when he requested it at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard, you can additionally use rollbacker in lieu of Twinkle's pseudo-rollback tool when you are mobile, as I understand there can be web browser compatibility issues with Twinkle when on mobile.

Message[edit source]

Thank you for the reply. I don't know how to go about this matter. I'm the only contributor on all three of the wikis. Could you help out? Ty. Hrvcfr (talk) 08:28, 10 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

thank you soo much[edit source]

thanks for fixing that for me I got a bit lost where I was at and may have Messed it up anyways thanks for fixing it (: have a great day!! --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 18:15, 12 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No problem, but your request has been removed by Dmehus per this diff. You should probally see with him ! HeartsDo (Talk || Global || Wiki Creator) 18:33, 12 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Cocopuff2018: @HeartsDo: is correct that I removed the malformed request in an edit conflict. Having been familiar with the overall community sentiment and the sentiment of Meta administrators, I don't feel your request stands a high likelihood of success at this time, per the reason(s) I articulated to your privately. That being said, if you wish to re-add your request, you may re-add wikitext from the revision HeartsDo fixed. Dmehus (talk) 18:37, 12 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Thanks[edit source]

Thanks for updating my userpage! Great to have a housemaid haha!

Your good-faith fix at User talk:Universal Omega[edit source]

Hi HeartsDo,

I noticed that the section header on User talk:Universal Omega was broken. Looking back through the diffs, it appears that this diff was fine, but that your good-faith fix, removing the duplicate thread, ended up breaking things. I haven't looked at it in detail, so would you mind repairing the wikitext on that page? Thanks! :)

Dmehus (talk) 14:36, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Dmehus: Thanks, I have  fixed this on this diff. HeartsDo (Talk / Global / Wiki Creator) 14:50, 1 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About the earlier incident[edit source]

I'm using a phone and had a hard time using a source for edits, thus my fault in the letter. ArturvonRedditz (talk) 05:14, 27 February 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@ArturvonRedditz No problem, this can happen to all, don't worry :p HeartsDo (Talk / Global / Wiki Creator) 19:40, 8 March 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pro tip: in response to this diff[edit source]

Hi HeartsDo,

Noting this edit, you may or may not be aware that you can link to categories (as well as file pages) without categorizing or transcluding them. You would just link to the category, or file page, like this:

[[:Category:Candidates for deletion|this category]]

Hope that helps,
