Billinghurst added a comment to T217730: Connect wikimaniawiki to Wikidata.

I don't see the links to other wiki's on Wikimaniawiki. Also checked nlwiki and there I see a link to Wikimaniawiki.

I will rephrase that. It works when done as the converted hex text, though not as unicode text. It would be most useful to not have to do a conversion.

Billinghurst added a comment to T202684: Import the old per-year Wikimania wikis into the new Wikimania wiki, each under their namespace.

Other bits:

  • In all cases, I think a list of migrated pages should be generated per namespace and stored on wiki in Wikimania:Migration/YYYY/Namespace
  • WD linking is not initiated at this point, though I don't see that it is going to be an issue as we have a standard implementation, with the additional content wikis. There is no existing WD configuration that would need to be amended for this migration. All uncharted!
  • I am guessing that we would update the interwiki maps to relink to wmania:YYYY:$1 respectively. Guessing that internal mapping

Billinghurst added a comment to T202684: Import the old per-year Wikimania wikis into the new Wikimania wiki, each under their namespace.

This is the area that could be most problematic, as it has the biggest overlap, though my light cruising through the wikis doesn't show a high use of the project namespaces. It would be useful to generate a report to see what exists needs to be managed. I would think that we could just move Wikimania:pagename to wikimania:pagename/YYYY and we can manipulate from there.

Billinghurst added a comment to T146628: Add IP range support to [[Special:Log]].

Just wondered where this is currently sitting. I truly (for the 1000+th time) could do with the ability to search both Special:Log/spamblacklist, Special:DeletedContributions and Special:Abuselog by IP range. Where we have spambot activity, it is next to impossible to identify where the spambots are happening by any reasonable functionality than browser search.

Each year will have a namespace (2019s already exists) on the new wiki, so it can still work that, instead of (Main NS):2019/Schedule it would just be 2019:Schedule the namespaces that people will need to be careful will be Template, File, Category etc.

From memory, I have also read that the search system has been set to default to the 2019 namespace as well.

@Billinghurst It would be great if the WMSE employees had admin rights in order to do smaller tasks until the next host organization takes over, but my goal is that the main work is carried out by volunteers. Thus, I'd like to delegate as much as possible. In the case that there's crucial tasks that no volunteers want to do, we do have capacity at the office.

I would suggest that any admin rights can be managed through this ticket for the foreseeable future [...]

Excellent idea. As I can work on translations, I'm looking for translation admin rights (I have them on Meta). If possible, I would request sysop rights, which is always convenient to have when you work on translations (I have those rights on fr.wp).

WikiConference North America does “Year/Pagename” e.g. “2018/Schedule” along with per-year templates that strip out the year prefix in the displayed page title and add a year-specific tagline. We have done five of these conferences now and this system has worked well for us.

The one thing that has been tumbling over in my mind is now that there is one wiki for many years, there will need to be the hierarchy to cover many years. In previous wikis, they could do it all one level down from root, and not have to worry about next year, that is no longer the case.

I can talk about stewardry processes from a previous life, they are looking for a process to know that an authority process has been undertaken. I would suggest that initially some names are put forward to be crats and approved here on phab. I would suggest that any admin rights can be managed through this ticket for the foreseeable future, and that they are set time limited (up to one year). The rights process for a permanent wikimaniawiki can be developed as things progress.

@Eric_Luth_WMSE We are going to need to work on rights pretty soon at least for allowing for translation admins. Probably best if the wiki can get bureaucrat(s) so that can be assigned locally; otherwise we can just lay them on the stewards through meta as long as you line up an approval process that sits outs outside of standard wikis

Have you tried writing it into the help pages for the extension? A parenthesis shouldn't be considered a page number, and the instructions are specific about what are available page numbering styles
https://wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:ProofreadPage
Why would you be adding some decorative aspect? If there was any part to be added, it would be better added to the page numbering style anyway.

Billinghurst closed T214797: Transclusion of entirely blank page with custom numbering, corrupts page numbering display on transclusion (due to overlap?). as Invalid.

This is completely part of the javascript page numbering functionality, and how it hides page numbers when they are squashed together preventing overlap, as that they don't fit in the same space. Simply use the exclude functionality of <pages> to omit the first blank page so it doesn't obscure the subsequent page number.

Is it possible to look at something other than a binary solution (off/on). For those of us who do the unheralded work in the background — spambots, vandals, LTA — having something to make our life easier would be most helpful; most especially at meta for the global filters where the spambot hits drown out others. Is there an intermediate measure other than at a point of call generation. Is it possible that this could be updated hourly, of six hourly?

Billinghurst added a comment to T205556: Missing labels on items (statements show item IDs instead of labels even though labels are defined).

@Addshore As I mentioned above, whilst I a having some issues with WD directly, I am having greater issues with WEF framework tool's lookups. As I create items and do the lookup for matching terms it is finding items successfully, though the rendering of the name into the visible for selection is regularly not occurring. If it was anything but the lookup I could say I had caching issues, however, the lookup will be fresh name every time.

I regularly use the WEF Framework gadget, and over the last several days I am seeing this problem come and go.

It doesn't read that way. And nearly always mirroring is not 'always mirroring'

I have no knowledge of which is the best way to fix it, I suspect all pages is gross overkill rather than targeting the Index: ns.

null edit kills the page status colouration for anonymous logins. Purge will bring it back.

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.

For anonymous user, index pages that I view randomly the pages show without page status in anonymous, though are showing with page status as logged-in user. If I purge (and wait) doesn't matter whether I am logged -in or anonymous to purge, then the Index: pages do update and remain updated.

As a logged-in user, it will also show normally/as expected.

It's interesting. As a logged-in user they whee not shown to me but if I try to edit the page and ask for a preview it works.

It looks like a cache problem.

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.
