AlexisJazz added a comment to T362379: Several major news websites (NYT, NPR, Reuters...) block citoid due to too much traffic.

How about scraping RSS feeds every 10 minutes and caching the results? That's very little traffic. Includes titles, links, author and date.

While npr.org isn't covered by search engine cache, it seems https://www.nprillinois.org/ is. There's no obvious way to rewrite the URLs though, for example compare:

The NYTimes has been blocking us for a while, it briefly worked when we changed datacenters and ergo IP, but they've understandably reblocked us after a few weeks' reprieve!

There's not a whole lot we can do except to ask for IP exemptions - @Samwalton9-WMF would this be something partnerships could try?

..there's no budget to get a VPN for $2/month and spread the traffic across a dozen IPs? Do you need me to pay for it? I can do that.

I don't think hiding our traffic so that our impact is less obvious is the way to go here, not least because as far as I'm aware Citoid identifies itself in the user agent. Much better for us in the long run to work with these orgs to either educate them on what we're doing, or to figure out ways of reducing our traffic volume. We don't want to burn bridges, especially when many of these orgs are current or potential TWL partners.

This is very interesting. Yes, I hack your HTML a lot. It's pretty maintenance-intensive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Alexis_Jazz/Factotum adds multiple buttons/links. (configurable, but it can add like six or seven max I think) Especially because I aim to support all skins, including Minerva.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T340705: [performance budgeting] Improve JS payload for projects with gadgets that lead to a 30%+ increase after gzip.

The current skin has no effect on the result AFAIK? But it's true that the script doesn't filter for skins. If there's a Vector-only default gadget but you're using CologneBlue, well, that gadget isn't loading for you. If there's a Minerva-only gadget but you're using Vector, same. For the purpose of finding low-hanging fruit this doesn't really matter IMHO.

The current skin has no effect, which is a problem for figuring out what contributes to payload on mobile. E. g. I got this in ruWP https://ru.wikipedia.org/?oldid=136342483 but most are gadgets for a namespace/action/etc. or do not load in Minerva.

But this task isn't about figuring out what contributes to payload on mobile. And that pie chart seems very useful to me: it shows instantly that https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-wikibugs is the largest default gadget.

$ php update.php 
PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Exception: Unable to open file /usr/share/mediawiki/extensions/LocalisationUpdate/extension.json: filemtime(): stat failed for /usr/share/mediawiki/extensions/LocalisationUpdate/extension.json in /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/registration/ExtensionRegistry.php:199

Open your LocalSettings.php and delete this line:

Now run update.php. This resolved the issue for me and the wiki is loading once more.

If MW estimates the transcode will be bigger than that size, then it will refuse to do it. In essence, it will change the error on the VP9 2160P transcode of File:Politparade.webm.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T340802: Remove the ResourceLoader targets system from MediaWiki core in 1.42.

@AlexisJazz the gadgets system is not impacted by this change. It maintains its own targets system (T328610) which I highly discourage using (as it may go away in future), but it's there in the mean time if you need it. There are no plans to deprecate Minerva. Not sure where you got any idea that this is happening. There are efforts to align the desktop Minerva/Vector skins and mobile Minerva experiences more (e.g. making gadgets work in both places) and the removal of the targets system as outlined in this ticket is part of that.

T111565#9135498 points to the relevant gerrit patch review of which you were a part. I would be as happy as anyone to have it loaded 'natively', but until someone prioritizes doing so, a gadget it is. (Speaking of which, we're planning to roll that out to all mobile users Soon after the briefest of brief trials with registered users. Better hang on to your hats.)

Right but the patch didn't pose opposition - it just recognized that the fat finger concern is a problem and is hard to solve.

(Speaking of which, we're planning to roll that out to all mobile users Soon after the briefest of brief trials with registered users. Better hang on to your hats.)

It doesn't look like the gadget addresses the fat finger concern so I'm not sure why we intentionally want to roll out a bad experience to end users?

As there are people opposed to making this change in MediaWiki core, I would suggest doing it in your wiki's MediaWiki:Common.js or a gadget, as long as your community finds that agreeable.

What exactly is the opposition here? Who is opposed to making this change (I can't see anything about this in the ticket).

My understanding of this ticket is nobody is prioritizing this work, the work is challenging and that's the only problem here.

In gadget/userscript form I made ColMask which is yet another take. Code is a bit messy though and it's JS on top of jquery.makeCollapsible. It does address the fat finger problem though, the whole collapsed object can be clicked to expand it and it uses buttons.

I think, per modules/tlsproxy/manifests/localssl.pp it was 180s when we were using nginx, so I'll adjust it accordingly.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T191804: Allow to store files between 4 and 5 GB.
There's one more use I think: the 4K transcode of https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Politparade.webm failed, presumably due to the 4GB limit.

More likely it hit a timeout. The lower resolution transcodes were already taking 9 hours. However if the transcode was > 4GB then the FileStoreRepo changes would fix it. Anyways, this task won't fix everything about large video files, there are still aspects that are going to be shaky for very large files.

How about both? The 1440p VP9 transcode is already 3.9GB.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T191804: Allow to store files between 4 and 5 GB.

As a note

My expectation is that the primary usage for a higher limit would be:

  • Long (or HD) videos which previously had to use more aggressive compression to fit in 4GB
  • Videos which previously had to be split up into multiple files

Right now we are averaging 12 files > 3GB a month on commons (overwritten and deleted files are negligible), and 3 files / month > 3.9GB. [enwiki has 0].

It seems for the most part large files are special cases, and I'm doubtful that increasing the limit will affect much in terms of capacity.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T351024: When requesting content, drvlimit/adrlimit/arvlimit/rvlimit is 500, not 5000.

The code to reduce the limit when content is parsed is in ApiQueryRevisionsBase, so this affects the following modules:

  • list=alldeletedrevisions with adrlimit
  • list=allrevisions with arvlimit
  • prop=deletedrevisions with drvlimit
  • prop=revisions with rvlimit

Also the deprecated list=deletedrevs with drlimit

Thanks for the clarification and research. You're talking about another sense of "parse" I'm guessing as the wikitext isn't actually parsed like action=parse does.

Yes, when fetching content the limit is set to 50/500, the normal limit is 500/5000. When parsing content via drvparse parameter the limit is set to 1/1.

The first number is without apihighlimit, the second with that right. There is no depending on the modul name, if you see different numbers that must depend on the rights (logged out vs. sysop/bot account)

AlexisJazz added a comment to T351124: Abusing spam-blacklist to deny anyone from editing a page.

This would seem to, in general, militate against the wisdom of implementing a spam URL blacklist as a magical totem that prevents *anybody* (including EC, including TE, including sysops) from editing the page.

Do we have some problem where template editors are spamming references to best-free-viagra.biz?
