MarcoSwart added a comment to T358338: PAGENAME returns - instead of - if title starts with a - (hyphen-minus).

I already made a fix for the template "huidigbestand" itself. But to enable you to check the behavior of PAGESINCATEGORY I posted a simple test on the talkpage of -en.

MarcoSwart added a comment to T358338: PAGENAME returns - instead of - if title starts with a - (hyphen-minus).

As suffixes and interfixes typically start with a hyphen, this bug is visibly breaking a template nl.wiktionary has used for over a decade on hundreds of pages. As far as I can see, this is caused by the magic word PAGESINCATEGORY not recognizing - as a hyphen when used as part of a category name. This change wasn't properly prepared and ought to be reverted for now.

MarcoSwart added a comment to T355608: Undetected automated agents on nl.wiktionary.

I noticed that the increase in Pageviews is not accompanied by a similar increase in Unique Devices. For online dictionaries, Pageviews per visit (~unique device) are typically between 2 and 3. I don't know if we could somehow filter out very large (e.g. >100) numbers of pageviews from a single device.

@GoranSMilovanovic on October 31st you stated: I will see to take a look at it ASAP. On December 16th you suggested that a solution might have something to do with "ShinyProxy". Unfortunately there seems to be no one else around who is able to do something about it. Now other problems are added, which may or may not be related. Could you please find time to look at these problems soon, or find someone else who is able to do so?

MarcoSwart added a comment to T297443: Add title/alt attributes from caption to media where caption isn't visible.

Dutch Wiktionary uses inline media captions on tens of thousands of pages in a similar way as described by @stjn above. The captions were intentionally added to improve usability. Starting a process where the easy way to get rid of an error message is simply removing this information, seems counterproductive to me.

@Jdlrobson : At nl.wiktionary a discussion at our Village Pump has resulted in this proposal for a new design. As far as I can see the user experience on mobile and normal site would become identical, except for the chrome and the font. As my experience in this field is limited, I would appreciate if you could check this design for major flaws.

Is this the cause for Recent Changes on nl.wiktionary showing just the message "Internal Error" (Interne fout)? This is blocking the patroling against spam and vandals, so it is an urgent problem.

MarcoSwart added a comment to T166487: Provide statistics about Cognate on Wiktionary.

@GoranSMilovanovic, thanks for your replies. I now have a better understanding of the hub-tabs. After some pondering I feel the most useful parameter would be: the number of links divided by the total number of links for the target wiktionary. In connection with this approach, it would be better not to add a percentage of the total number of pages for the target wiktionary but present the percentage of the total number of links instead. So I amend my original suggestion made Jul 9, 11:03 PM. This would make the different presentations more consistent with one another. The amount of pages without any wikilinks has often to do with specific choices made by a wiktionary, like putting flected forms or different spelling or script on separate pages or not. These choices are not very relevant for interwikilinks and when comparing numbers of interwikilinks I expect more meaningful results when we ignore them.

MarcoSwart added a comment to T166487: Provide statistics about Cognate on Wiktionary.

Finally the Links Dataset. I understand why the lines are duplicated. Unfortunately the search function operates on all columns, making it difficult to create useful lists.

  1. Assuming that the search-function is able to discern interpunction symbols, would it be possible to add a colon to all the language codes in the first column and a period to the codes in the second column (e.g. en: and en.)? It would still be possible to search on the present two or three letter codes, but by adding the colon or the period you could select "clean" lists.
  2. To expand on this proposal: some of the two letter codes are part of the three letter codes. So it is impossible to select 'an' without selecting 'ang' en 'zh_min_nan' too. Using a semicolon and comma for codes having over two letters would create the possibility to select an: without selecting 'zh_min_nan;'

MarcoSwart added a comment to T166487: Provide statistics about Cognate on Wiktionary.

The "Hub tabs" are a little overcrowded. I suspect that most of the lines all are connected to the same top or bottom wiktionaries by size. Maybe it would be more informative if we could adjust for the size of the wiktionaries involved. What I forgot in my earlier remarks: wiktionaries are not just different in size, but they may also differ in the number of pages without any wikilink. On the other hand: although it is nice to know, I don't see a real practical use for this type of information anyway. Maybe we should just enjoy the pictures.

The My Wiktionary tab is interesting. Presently it only shows the absolute number of links. To me it would be useful if this was also expressed as a percentage of the number of "Good pages" in [http://wikistats.wmflabs.org/display.php?t=wt this table]: sometimes a high number is mainly the result of the target wiktionary having many pages, sometimes it really has to do with a strong overlap between projects, which would be indicated by differences in the percentages.

MarcoSwart added a comment to T166487: Provide statistics about Cognate on Wiktionary.

@GoranSMilovanovic I was referring to the additional request by Pamputt. It could be realised as a kind of filter on the results of "I miss you" showing only links to pages that contain a word in the language of the selected wiktionary. But I don't know whether this information is accessible in the Cognate database, because the interwikilinks only need the page title, not the page content.

The main page Special:LintErrors on Dutch Wiktionary has been updated this morning, showing as a new find an old page with both a misnested tag and an obsolete tag, which of course have been corrected by now. What puzzles me is that the counter for "Missing end tag" was and is at 11 pages, with the corresponding subpage only showing the 8 pages that have become our baseline. If it had been 10 I would consider it the result of rounding, but how do we get to 11?

At the moment editing a page on Dutch Wiktionary has the effect of removing all interwikilinks of that page. Both Cognate and the datacenter switch were presented with assurances that everything was well-prepared. The message concerning the datacenter switch mentioned that a big team was standing by to solve unexpected problems. I strongly support making this "Unbreak now!"
