Billinghurst added a comment to T59198: Special:IndexPages: Add a sort by the number of page remaining to correct.

Thanks, though not certain that we have it right.

To note that what we seem to have achieved is to support the display of the number of pages to be moved from proofread -> validated, rather than the total number of pages remaining to be validated.

There seems to be a misunderstanding. To "validate" a page means exactly to move it from "proofread" to "validated" status. And this is what has been done, as this is what was asked. A possible application can be: I want to launch a "validation of the month" contest, and I need a list of books with lots of pages ready to be validated.

Now what you are asking is a different thing, that I would call "total number of pages remaining to be proofread and/or validated", i.e. pages where some kind of work (transcription, formatting, validation...) needs to be done. This looks easy to do, so I'll see if I can add a further option using your formula.

I'm not sure if it's possible to exclude books with 0 of such pages, but I'll look into it.

touch is an edit, and as there has been underlying change in the schema that WS pages it will in essence be an edit. FWIW the interaction of ProofreadPage and Mediawiki has had changes in the page interaction. Also Wikisource transcription processes will often have pages not edited for that many years, so please not be hasty about the age of a page, there are more uses than just Wikipedias.

Billinghurst added a comment to T198470: page proofread status is not displayed in index page for some pages.

So, let's see if I got it right:

The status in the index pages (on enWS) are currently broken because some pages were last edited long ago or for some reason do not have the status property set. There was a fallback supposed to be deployed a couple of days ago, but as far as I can see nothing has changed (e.g. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:The_Book_of_the_Thousand_Nights_and_One_Night,_Vol_1.djvu, which was all yellow before, now it's mostly white and <50% yellow). The solution is to modify (null edit or otherwise) the affected pages one by one, either manually or with a bot, which has been done for a few languages, but not for enWS.

Is this correct? Any estimation when enWS could be done? Can I help?

Per a conversation in enWS, there may be the need to touch all the pagestatus:0 and pagestatus:4 pages on wikis to ensure that they are pushed to utilise the newer system, rather than wait for these pages to be edited (as the bulk of them are unlikely to be edited again). We will need to recognise that this will kick a lot of edits, for example for enWS that looks to be circa 500k pages (5.8 days at 1 edit/second)

@Tpt purge seems to be not enough here (is it a bug?). A null edit is needed to update the page. And I am afraid a bit that null-editing ALL pages may flood RC (as null edits are often not null actually; eg https://pl.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Strona:PL_Nowodworski-Encyklopedia_koscielna_T.5_003.jpeg&diff=prev&oldid=1805135 )

Touching pages is needed to guarantee a fix. I see that some pages are resolved with purge, though that it is not a universal solution. Having to go back and touch every Page: namespace page is a solution, though could be an excessive solution.

As I see it is a rendering issue, and I am guessing something to do with ResourceLoader where the image is loading under the toolbar with a 15px height

Seems that it would be better to flag this for a linter fix, rather than an ugly hack of wikimedia. We have to learn to do things properly, and it isn't as though it is problematic to close <poem> on one page and reopen on the next.

@Xaosflux thanks. That is what I believe that I have been saying, or believed that I have been saying. And only where mediawiki namespace message has been customised, ie. is a local message.

This is clearly a case of minor modifications (using shipped translations is still okay). One would think that for languages where we have XX and XX-LL that we can stem and identify same language. This is quite problematic for English language wikis where any person is using en-gb, en-ca, etc.

bah humbug, it seems that touch/purge in ywikibot needs either categories or transclusion; and I don't see that knWS uses index categorisation based on proofreading :-( I will have to purge all the pages and that will take a couple of hours. I have started it, though will have to look at it tomorrow to judge success.

@jayantanth I am having to push through as billinghurst as the bot doesn't have sufficient privileges to pull enough pages through the API. You may wish to put through the knWS community a request for permissions for wikisource-bot so we can do these things more easily.

Touching the files seems to be working fine. Why they are needing to be touched is unknown to me.

Billinghurst added a comment to T152219: Statistics on Captcha success/failure rate.

We should clean these up a bit so they can serve as a validation of new captcha types:

  • differentiate between registrations which have Javascript and ones which don't (seems like ~90% of spambots do not have Javascript while most user do)
  • also between ones that use the API vs. web interface, and mobile v. desktop (most spambots seem to be using desktop web)
  • store username + captcha success rate in EventLogging so that it can be merged with block logs and editcounts later to get more accurate numbers for spambot vs. productive contributor captcha error rate then make the data easily available somewhere (grafana? ReportUpdater?)
