Not sure if it's related, but I keep getting this error when uploading new version of files.It might be a generic issue, not a chunk upload one? (Also see my earlier comment on this when uploading images through Lightroom, also not sure that's chunk upload?)

@MatthewVernon Thanks for looking into this. Just to note that it does go back a bit longer, this ticket was started in early February.

Just to note that I've now gotten to the bottom of this in the pywikibot code. If after getting the property claim for an external-id, I request 'clm.getTarget()' - then I get lower case. If, however, I do 'clm.getTarget().title()' then the first letter is capitalised. To generalise the code, I've added a check for if a claim is an external-id or not, and use the appropriate call accordingly.

Copying over my comment from the task that was merged in (I didn't see this one, wasn't expecting Yann to have created two on the same issue):
I'm also getting this error surprisingly often at the moment (after <5 minutes of starting a bulk upload). From Lightroom uploading: "The MediaWiki error backend-fail-internal occured: An unknown error occurred in storage backend "local-swift-codfw"." I've also had the same error when uploading a new version of a file.
The items were created in 2022, so probably not a current problem?

Sorry, it works out too expensive for me in the end. :-( Hope to join in with a future Wikisafari instead!
Jan 25 2023
It looks much better now, thank you for working on this!
Jan 23 2023
I think this happens when the article is shorter than the sidebars, going from a random selection of articles.
Jan 16 2023
Hi, it's still on my to-do list, sorry. :-( Will try to get to it as soon as I can.
I'm potentially interested, but I could only participate if it's before the end of March. The current suggestion of 11 February might work.

I'm just wondering - if the system is checking and knows that the link is to a redirect already, is there a way to highlight or auto-select the sitelink to redirect options?

@Azaya89 @Aklapper The Slack link was mentioned on the Outreachy website, I've fixed it. At this point in the process we use Zulip - please see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Outreach_programs/Zulip for how to connect.
Oct 16 2022
Ah, I see, thanks. Looking a bit more, there are examples where they are noindex but probably they do want to be in Wikidata, e.g., https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Serial_murders_in_France - so excluding noindex probably wouldn't work well anyway. Will have to look into this further before deciding how the bot should approach this now.
@Ladsgroup The specific case I came across was AfC categories on enwiki, like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:AfC_submissions_by_date/07_January_2021 - that should be excluded, but weren't.
Hi, using the new database structure, I've run into a problem: I think it's not excluding one or both of noindex and hiddencat - which normally should not be connected to Wikidata. Please could someone check this?
Oct 15 2022
Thanks, implemented now, and this seems to be working well!
Oct 10 2022
@Ladsgroup @Lucas_Werkmeister_WMDE OK, reading through the other task (and quickly renaming this one, sorry for that confusion!), the big change is the new page_prop 'unexpectedUnconnectedPage', which I could simply query here. I need the page title rather than the ID. So probably something like this would work? (changing, e.g., -0 to -14 for categories):
Oh wow, I didn't realise I'd sent you down a rabbit hole, sorry - and really nice work fixing this!
Oct 8 2022
Thanks for the replies! I've gone with Lucas's solution, since that's probably more stable than the categories, but that's also an interesting approach to take! The query ran successfully, and Pi bot's adding infoboxes again now.
Hi, the change also affected Pi bot's deployment of Wikidata Infoboxes on Commons, help rewriting the query would be appreciated at T320314!

@srishakatux I can co-mentor this, I've already registered to do so on Outreachy. I'm not planning on proposing any of my own projects this round.

Adding pywikibot tag - does any pywikibot developer have thoughts about saving multiple changes in one edit?
Aug 23 2022
While this seems like a good thing to integrate into MediaWiki, it is also something that is supported on the browser side. I regularly use Google Chrome to translate Spanish documents to English through Google Translate. If we want to do this, how could we do it *better* than Google Translate does?
Aug 12 2022
Ah, pull request posted at https://github.com/wikimedia/Wikibase/pull/235 - but it's saying it should be on gerrit instead. No idea how to do that (or time to find out...)!
Aug 9 2022
OK, going through all uses of globe in P625, and uses of P376 (per https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Wikidata:Request_a_query&oldid=1700293636#Globes_we_might_want_to_have_coordinates_on). Also, ignoring fictional items such as Q1005907 (Earth depicted in Star Trek), Q5807471 (dinosaur land), I think we need to add: Q596, Q16711, Q107556, Q158244, Q3030, Q6604, Q149012, Q150249, Q510728, Q1385178, Q11558, Q16081, Q16765, Q844672, Q149374, Q319, Q193, Q17754, Q3257, Q15662, Q17751, Q324. Here's a drop-in code replacement that does this (re-ordering by current use and adding more on the end, let me know if you want me to git push this):

@hlepp In case it's of use, I gave a general talk about Outreachy at Wikidatacon last year, I'd be happy to repeat it if you wanted a couple of related talks together - or @PangolinMexico could reuse some of the content if they wanted.

Thanks! The new code is live, some changes appeared on the Grafana link @Snaevar shared, but they looked reasonable. If anyone spots any problems with server load from commons, please let me know, otherwise the big change has now happened. :-)

Ah, thanks for the link to that help page, I'd forgotten about that! With a bit of investigation, it turned out that AdBlocker Ultimate was blocking the images as advertisements! Disabled on commons.wikimedia.org, and it now works! Many thanks for the pointer.

I think this is no longer needed, since it's now 'multilingual sites' rather than other sites, which is a big improvement.
Jul 8 2022
Just to note that Pi bot was removing some of these links in 2018, focused on tgwiki, but I haven't been running that script recently. Documentation at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Requests_for_permissions/Bot/Pi_bot_9 and code at https://github.com/mpeel/wikicode/blob/master/check_tgwiki.py . I'm happy to help with similar bot work if you need, but suspect you've got it well in hand @MisterSynergy!

Two big advantages of the normal EditWatchlist over raw are being able to see which items have been redirected or deleted, without having to check them manually.
May 29 2022
The raw watchlist loads fine for me, although I haven't tried saving it (it would be a lot of work to rebuild it manually if the saving went wrong!).

Much better, thanks!

Hi all, sorry for the delay in replying. Everyone now has replies on the talk page (basically, everyone's work was accepted as completed), and we'll take this work into account while assessing and deciding on the internship. Thanks everyone for your work during the contribution period!
Apr 22 2022
@301295_kTH Task 2 looks good, you can count it as completed on Outreachy, sorry for the delay. I'll reply about the task 3 issue on the task 3 ticket.
@301295_kTH please see the 'Application and timeline' section of T300207 that describes how to do the timeline.
Apr 21 2022
It's up to you, you can add them all, or just the one you think is most appropriate. You should put at least one URL per task though.
Hi all, sorry, something unexpected came up. I’ll check and comment on your tasks as soon as I can, but please go ahead and submit applications now, you don’t need to wait for the tasks to be checked first.
Apr 19 2022
Hi @301295_kTH Nearly there! I've left feedback on the talk page, at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User_talk:Varsha_ahirwar_from_India/Outreachy_2 . You can also find the article you should use for task 3 there.
@Prince418 Your proposal still seems substantially the same as Lennard's, just with some rewording and rearranging, which still isn't OK. I don't think you've tried the microtasks either? I'm not sure of the GSoC rules for submitting this, and the deadline is today.

Hi, @Bisola7 you have a reply in your email inbox, @Akandoria you have a reply on the talk page.
Apr 13 2022
@LennardHofmann Thanks! Those changes look good. I can now see it in the Google dashboard. With "I might have to fix urgent bugs reported after the deployment of a key part, while I'm already working on the next feature" - yes, this is the norm when developing community-facing code!
Apr 12 2022
Hi @LennardHofmann, this is looking good! I think you also have to submit this via Google's system (please make sure you do so!).
Apr 11 2022
@PangolinMexico @Jiehui_Ma You have replies on the talk pages!
I've marked this as 'Closed to new applicants' on Outreachy as there are now several people that have completed all three tasks. The project is still open for contributions, though, and will remain so until the contribution period ends. And if anyone new still wants to have a go at the tasks, that's also fine.
Hi @Amitha67 and @Sonali.Rastogi welcome! Please try the first microtask to get started, see T301733
