Hi there, So the browser login that was still working no longer works -- and I am no longer able to edit Wikipedia logged in a BrillLyle. Please, if anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. I would prefer not to have to register a new account. Thanks so much in advance. - Erika aka BrillLyle

BrillLyle added a comment to T176051: Dashboard should prompt/automatically request IP throttle exemption.

Having editors with Account Creator status is helpful, but the main problem with putting in a Phabricator request to lift the IP throttle is that the organizers need to have the IP address for the editathon from the partner organization where the event is taking place.

BrillLyle added a comment to T152922: Global user contributions - tool not working.

I was seeing User Contributions on the User page on English Wikipedia and then seeing none on the GUC. But it seems to be working now thankfully, so I guess this is now resolved.

BrillLyle added a comment to T152922: Global user contributions - tool not working.

So if I click on Global user contributions in the footer of a Wikipedia User's User Contributions, the GUC interface is not pulling current information. Like for some new users at the editathon, it is pulling up NULL (i.e., no entries) for users who have English Wikipedia entries listed on their Wikipedia User's User Contributions page. So the GUC is blank but it is clear they have contributions. I am not sure how much more detailed I can be since the tool is providing an absence of information, whereas before it was providing information that matches user contributions on the various projects.

  • I don't know what that code means, what action item I should take
  • I find it hard to believe that this is not fixable. This is fundamental functionality to use the WikiMarkup citation templates. I don't understand the delay and I am concerned at the lack of what seems to be concern about such an important loss of functionality.

Curious if it would be possible to have whatever is currently working in Wiki Markup (the magnifier/lookup button) that does a lookup function -- and have inter-operability with Wikidata -- in addition to making Citoid work with Visual Editor? Basically could we have whatever works with Visual Editor also work with the old school Wiki Markup?

BrillLyle added a comment to T1035: Consolidate the many tech events calendars in Phabricator's calendar.

@Qgil -- Hi Yes I have looked at the Phabricator Calendar. It seems fine but there are some significant things missing that would mean loss of functionality. (i.e., time zone support, color coding, ability to select and maintain different calendars, ability to copy to events to personal calendar, etc.). It also requires end users sign in using OAuth and have a Phabricator account, correct? We have problems getting participants onboarded to the en-Wiki so this is another thing that I'm just thinking of. Unless this solution was fully integrated with Wikipedia where it would not require logging in to another system to easily copy/export events, I am concerned this is a big issue.

I agree that just because there is a budget and a time constraint doesn't mean that's the best approach -- especially because a bandaid and/or short-term solution may not provide what is needed in the long-term.

The thing that us folks doing Wikipedia:Meetup editathons need is something that can be maintained on the Wikipedia namespace -- and probably for those still using Meta for use on that namespace as well.

My suggestion of RSS was more of just thinking the quickest way to get it into MediaWiki wikis on the WMF cluster.

But if we want to put time into a extension that can pull a calendar widget (etc) into a page would be fantastic and would be more versatile.

But its more a side thing compared to the main goal of this bug (example: thinking of the tech events list on the main page of mw wiki).
