your Reverse edit on Request for Permissions[edit source]

hey there i wanted to speak to you about your reverse edit on Undid revision 159554 by Dmehus (talk): Vandalism - Your action implies that you do not care about Meta policies. And private discussions help nobody. If you do want to revert this then please hold a community discussion first. Thanks.

Dmehus always has respect for the Rules and etc. and I just want to say he always assumes good faith and he removed my request for a reason we spoke about it on irc and since no one voted it still complies with the rules to remove the thread and I just wanted to mention this. --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 17:04, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi, I actually reverted another edit but that has been taken care of privately. I hope this helps. :) R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 17:46, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

thankyou for reverting that I just did not want anyone to be confused by those edits (: --Cocopuff2018 (talk) 18:24, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

It is alright. :) R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 18:34, 28 January 2021 (UTC)

Frequency of operation of TranslationHelper bot[edit source]

Hey R4356th,

I meant to ask you, actually, how frequently your TranslationHelper bot proposed to operate and whether it would be automatically or manually run? Looking at this revision, that seems to indicate it is manually run, which is fine. I'm just wondering if you might consider setting it up on a cron, like Revibot, and have it run either once a day or once a week (however often we felt it needed to be run)?

Separately, I noticed that you add categories at User:TranslationHelper/Categories to Crawl, which is good. While fairly minor, I'm wondering if we could modify the code, perhaps, to have the bot monitor, say, Category:Pages monitored by TranslationHelper instead?

Dmehus (talk) 16:21, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Yes, you are right. And I am not currently interested in setting up a cron job for the bot without any specific use case. I am of course always open to suggestions, however. :) And regarding using a category instead of a page for tracking which pages to update, using a category will technically be better for me and if I ever decided to set up a cron. So if the Meta community does not have any problem, we can use a category. R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 19:16, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
R4356th The Meta community will have not any issues with using either a subpage of your bot's userspace or a category page; however, it's really more of a administrator issue as it's mainly a logistical/administrative concern. I personally don't mind either, actually, though I wondered whether using a category would be technically more difficult to set up (i.e., a major change to your bot's code), but I guess it doesn't. The automation isn't essential, but it would just be nice to know that as future pages are marked for translation, the bot will check it on a regular basis. Also, another advantage to automating is that an update time could be set to when editing volumes are low (which is probably in the overnight hours for me). Either one is not essential, though, just more of something to think about over the next month or so maybe. Dmehus (talk) 23:29, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
Do you think there needs to be a thread on Meta:AN regarding this? R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 07:54, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
Hrm, likely not, no. It's just an administrative/logistical discussion that can occur anywhere. As the operator of User:TranslationHelper, your talk page is arguably the best place to have any discussion between one or more Meta administrators and you regarding logistical changes to the bot's operations or technical specifications. As long as the bot isn't being proposed to add new tasks or expand its scope of operation, no new bot approval request discussion is required. Dmehus (talk) 13:09, 4 February 2021 (UTC)
Sounds good. I will make the technical changes soon then. R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 13:15, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Answer for the request[edit source]


It seems I can't answer to your response to my request, because it asks me to read a captcha code and it simply isn't there, so I do it here.

"It isn't an alternate account, just another people who want to participate to the wiki and I told her I was going to submit it but she didn't saw it so this is it. (Here is a screen of her apologising, basically "yes I'm sorry, I didn't saw it and I was in a rush to create the wiki")"

Thanks for your answer,

Abibeur. 17:33, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

@Abibeur: While I'm not certain why you were not able to reply on your user talk page but could reply on R4356th's, and I'll let R4356th reply to your comment and action your wiki request, I just wanted to remind you of the following:
(Please sign your posts on talk pages by using four tildes like this: ~~~~.)

Hi, @Abibeur:! I am surprised to hear you were not able to reply on your talk page but it is, of course, okay to post here. :) It looks like the message in the screenshot has not been written in English. That itself is not a problem but could you please ask them to confirm their identity here? Thank you.

Wikiwars[edit source]

It's good, I have changed the subdomain of my wiki. Thank you for your message. Cordially, Inès3112 (talk) 15:10, 16 February 2021 (UTC)

Hello, thanks for reaching me out. I have replied on the request. Please follow my instructions. Thank you. R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 15:17, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
Noting your edit summary, DiscussionTools is not disabled. Sometimes the "reply" links do not load, which could possibly be related to times when the servers are under excess load and page load times are slow. Dmehus (talk) 15:19, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
@Dmehus: Yeah, agreed. I have been experiencing slowness for about half an hour now. I also noticed that loading scripts from other wikis takes much time, which could be making the case worse for me. It should be noted that the Reply button does usually show up even if there is slowness, however. R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 15:27, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, it's been really slow for me as well for the past hour or so. It's probably even slower for you. I think that DiscussionTools doesn't work when the NOEDITSECTIONLINK magic word appears on a given talk page, but not sure if that's an upstream bug or by design. In any case, that seems not to be the case here as well, so we could possibly file a Phabricator task, but I'm not sure how to word it? Dmehus (talk) 15:37, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
A Phab task regarding what? R4356th 2,902 Local Contributions Logged Actions Rights CentralAuth (talk) 15:45, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
