Merging via Special:MergeAccount does not work[edit]

Dear Administrators,

I would like to merge User:Wolfing from german wikipedia and german wikibooks. In english wikipedia there is also a Wolfing with 3 edits (, which is not me.--Wolfing (talk) 17:12, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

You can't merge the account because you're not the "winner". Just make two more edits on and it will work. --Nemo 12:44, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Setting global interface language[edit]

It's clear that the preferences for each wiki are set independently, however when I travel around each wiki I'm required to try to find the preferences and set the interface language on each wiki. Is there a tool or a change to global.js that could set the interface of all global accounts to the same interface language? - Technophant (talk) 22:54, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

I'd assume that the software needs the language setting before running Javascript code. If not, try adding mw.config.set('wgUserLanguage', 'en'); to Special:MyPage/global.js. --Stefan2 (talk) 23:33, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
