@Aklapper, this discussion is not very productive, so I suggest we end it here. I understand you need to follow your checklist but I still maintain that the original description was perfectly actionable. Can we now return to discussing the bug please?

Sorry for nagging you folks, but patrolling wikidata is becoming increasingly important and doing so from my home wiki is just so much easier (if it works). I would very much appreciate it if we could find a solution to this problem in a timely manner.

We definitely need more time to fix this at rowiki, since apparently I'm the only one with both the knowledge and access to be able to fix the main page and I currently don't have more that 5-10 minutes at a time to devote to wiki. I would appreciate it if you could push back the deadline to Jun 2nd or later in the hope that I will be able to look into the design on a national holiday.

Strainu added a comment to T243701: Wikidata maxlag repeatedly over 5s since Jan20, 2020 (primarily caused by the query service).

I have been thinking about this and I think I have a suggestion. bots and tools, should respect maxlag before it reaches the threshold. We need to return the value of the maxlag in the API as well but tool developers should check the maxlag, even if it's 3 or 2 seconds, then wait for that amount and make the next edit after that (or just sleep exactly after the edit is made). This way they slow down before "they reach the threshold and then have to back off the let go back to normal and then they start the flood of edits again and so on and so forth."

Strainu updated subscribers of T234051: Patroller right changes to ro.wp.

That said, could you tell me what kind of review there would be for a policy against undeleting by patrollers? If violations of that policy would be noticed fairly quickly, I think that would address the concern because they'd be given the right only for helping to clean up content, but if an undeletion might go unnoticed for a long while, I'd be more hesitant.

Strainu added a comment to T234051: Patroller right changes to ro.wp.

Hi all. A couple thoughts. I note from the original ticket that there's a note that patrollers were all selected through an RFA style process, which would satisfy the need for community review before giving people rights. It's not clear to me from this thread if that's the process for all patrollers or if it's just coincidence that it applies to all patrollers right now. If the latter, I would suggest that you formalize that the process to get patroller rights requires a community review and then this is fine.

Strainu added a comment to T226273: Demographic Surveys Configurations.

@Isaac , I believe the approach you took to calculating the sampling rate is misleading and you might end up with a low number of responses, at least for Romanian. Since you extrapolate directly based on 2017 data, you seem to assume the differences in pageviews between May 2019 and June 2017 are all due to the normal evolution of the wiki, with no seasonal variation. However, looking at the available pageview data for ro.wp ( https://stats.wikimedia.org/v2/#/ro.wikipedia.org/reading/total-page-views/normal|table|all|~total|monthly ), one can see there is a decrease in PV each June on the order of 15-20%, followed by another decrease in July of more than 20% compared to June. These are caused by school recess, people taking vacations or simply going out more and will likely affect your potential audience.

@Evad37 : thanks, I wrote a similar module myself last year, but there are two problems with such a module: it needs to be regularly maintained by adding new templates to the exclusion list and it fragments the implementation between wikis potentially leading to slightly different results.

We do already refer to the link text as "label" in other places -- e.g. a numbered link gets an "add label" button to swap out the "[3]" for text -- that said, if people think it's unclear and needs explanation in this situation, now would be a good time to quickly change that before people spend effort on translations.

Strainu added a comment to T187588: Responsive references divide the reference list in unequal columns.

I don't see how fair use has any relevance, since that is not a quote. Regardless, MediaWiki should accommodate all existing uses, especially since this change was made specifically to eliminate the need for the template.

Strainu added a comment to T179259: Visual Editor removing whitespace from infoboxes by default.

Please note that this bug is causing some issues with AbuseFilter, because it's adding lines which are not really modified to the modified lines category. For instance, this change wouldn't have triggered the filter without this bug.

I see the wiki is now available. What is the process for having accounts on that wiki and what other steps are needed? Thanks

And one more. I seem to remember a brief period when creating your own translation was possible? Was that an experiment or do I just remember wrong? Currently there is no way to do this as far as I can see

I'm familiar with the development process, but I feel that somebody should properly investigate this situation (which is expected for older entries at Wikidata according to a talk page I can't seem to find anymore) and evaluate whether this fix is enough. I don't have the time to invest in that anytime soon, sorry.

Very similar actually. :) {{{0}}} is a generic solution to my problem, making getParent() work an unlimited number of levels is a Lua-only solution. No idea which one is easier to implement.

@Chicocvenancio , I was able to start the bot server while my user's server was on, so my steps to reproduce no longer apply.

Strainu added a comment to T18889: Removal of mo language codes.

Is there a way to know if there are any active wikis using this translation? At the very least, can we check how many users currently use this interface language on any Wikimedia wiki? Without those datapoints, it's hard to see if the effort (and drama, TBH) associated with maintaining this translation is worth it.

Thanks for the correction @Dereckson , wikipedia was indeed a typo from me. I'm not sure why the "i" in romid though?

I would personally prefer romd.wikipedia.org (we often use WMROMD as a short name). @Andrei_Stroe @Giku : any preferences from you?
