I'm just an ordinary wiki user (not an admin, steward, sysadmin, developer, etc.). My home wiki is the English Wikipedia, but I have accounts on almost every Wikimedia wiki, with e-mail notifications turned on.

I help maintain m:Wikimedia_News and en:Wikipedia:Milestone_statistics, so I watch various projects and tags around here to stay on top of relevant changes.

Dcljr added a comment to T196845: Fix Pswikivoyage banner issue.

@Baloch007 Most problems seen on a wiki can be fixed by editing that wiki (which I assume is what happened in this case). In the future, unless you are sure that a software configuration change is necessary, you might want to try asking for help on some wiki talk page that is relevant to your problem (in this case, a talk page at the English Wikivoyage, since that's what you were using for comparison) before submitting a Phabricator task.

Dcljr added a comment to T192670: Run initSiteStats.php for lfnwiki, inhwiki, gorwiki and euwikisource.

Yes, thanks. In case anyone's interested, it looks like the entire wiki contents were actually imported after initSiteStats.php was run (the first time). The second run that just happened changed the "article" count from 375 to 332. Can't say on-wiki activity was not responsible for any of this, but there were certainly no mass deletions in that time and a quick check of contributions by "active users" did not reveal any mass removal of wikilinks, either. So it looks like the count was off purely due to the importing.

I see that gor:Special:Statistics is full of zeros (except "Words in all content pages"), which doesn't seem normal at this point in the process (seeing as how importing is finished according to MF-Warburg). Is this an oversight on someone's part, or will it be fixed soon as part of the normal creation process? (I don't see the running of initSiteStats.php, for example, in the wiki-creation instructions.)

Keep in mind that some of the large differences between old and new counts seen at m:Wikimedia_News#February_2018 may be due to bugs that have been fixed for many years. The changes seen with this latest recount (T186947#3974067) reflects the cumultaive inaccuracy in stats since the affected wikis were first created (or at least since they were last recounted, which [AFAIK] most Wikibooks wikis have never been); it doesn't necessarily reflect the current inaccuracy in stats.

FYI: Because s3 contains Wikibooks wikis, which are not part of the monthly article recount that has been happening since 2015 (T68867), those wikis have just seen their first recounting since maybe forever (?). As a result, there have been significant changes in article counts (and total pages, and even edits) on those wikis. See m:Wikimedia_News#February_2018 for (some of) the gory details.

(Off-topic) @Aklapper: FWIW, I believe @Felis_domestica was quite reserved in expressing his/her views. The use of the phrase "not bother" was a purely descriptive one about the consequences of the troll's actions, not about any behaviors/attitudes of sysadmins. And the use of "helping" I took as simply a somewhat figurative description of the effect of the decision to revert the change. I don't think either of these show any lack of etiquette, nor warranted the second half of your comment. (And BTW, simply pointing someone to previous comments with no further explanation, when they have specifically asked for a simple explanation, is pretty likely to not accomplish much except annoying the questioner — it is akin to a "RTFM" type of response, which never goes over well.)

If I may comment as a largely ignorant "ordinary user": It seems the fundamental issue being argued here is that future configuration changes may "undo" a user's preference choice without their knowledge. So, we should establish (and state explicitly) whether:

  1. configuration changes (of the sort that could be approved) could undo a user's preference choices regarding LoginNotify
  2. such changes could go unnoticed by the user (if yes to #1)
  3. something can be done to make them not go unnoticed by the user (if yes to #2)
  4. something can be done to prevent/discourage such configuration changes in the future (if yes to #1 and #2, and no to #3)

Can we get an explicit "yes" or "no" to each of these?

Is this something that will need to wait for the CLDR change discussed in T162823?

@DannyH which VPs have you posted to about this? (Or which ones will you be posting to?) Someone may want to monitor the discussions.

Dcljr added a comment to T172056: In RTL languages, Babel should be aligned to the left but is aligned to the right.

@Mikey641 For me (on a LTR system) this change to your hewiki userpage seems to already do what you want. (Note to LTR readers: although the code in the diff may look like {{babel:kn-5#}}, when displayed LTR in an edit window it reads properly as {{#babel:kn-5}}.)

Yep, just like with the reopening of the Dutch Wikinews (T168764), the categories are not properly populated on the new Bashkir Wikibooks after importing. @MF-Warburg any ideas why this might be happening?

The wiki wasn't broken, statistics and links table aren't real-time. The script is being run monthly. But if it'll make you happy, I'll try to catch the import and ask for the script as soon as it will be finished. Is it okay for you?

Do we know how to avoid the problems that arose when the Dutch Wikinews was reopened (T168764)? In particular, see T169881 and T169861. Something went very wrong, and I don't know what it was.

It probably would have been preferable to discuss it at sr.wiktionary and simply direct interested users from sr.wikipedia to sr.wiktionary. Since @Obsuser has already notified the sr.wiktionary community, you might consider extending a special invite to the one really active WT user who apparently hasn't participated in the WP discussion yet.

@Obsuser srwikiquote uses the default settings, so only pages in the main namespace that contain at least one [[wikilink]] to a page title on the same wiki get counted as articles.

It looks like it will be necessary to purge the cache on most of these pages to get the interlanguage links to show up. This can be done "manually" by visiting each page and appending the string "?action=purge" to the end of the URL and then hitting the Enter key to reload the page (with the new URL).
