Hello, can my account be unlocked now? Pardon and thanks!

Re: Possibility of adding a Babel tag[edit]

Of course, actually I thought I had it since I added it to all wikis by using a bot, but I forgot I had already an user page here so it did not change. Thanks for advising. Regards. Mr.Ajedrez (talk) 14:58, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

(-: thanks for whatever you can do in this space. It is not a requirement, though obviously it is useful.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:39, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

User rights account creator on fr.wikisource[edit]

Hi Billinghurst,

Please can you either give me the right to give rights of account creator, or give this right yourself, to User:Ernest-Mtl. Thanks for your help! --Zyephyrus (talk) 22:24, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done via SRP. @Zyephyrus: If you wish for the grant rights for "account creator" to be held by frwikisource bureaucrats (s:fr:Spécial:Liste des droits de groupe), then have a local discussion, to reach consensus (and submit a bugzilla request). If you need a hand, then give me a shove and I can explain the technical detail, but to start the conversation, that is the pertinent detail. :-)  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:52, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Hello Billinghurst. I think that you forgot to remove your checkuser right on fawiki. Regards.--Calak (talk) 13:12, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

COIBot xwiki review[edit]

Hi billinghurst, can you examine my action on User:COIBot/XWiki/ and other COIBot userspace edits (mostly clousures)? I'm newbie to antispam world (especially COIBot), so I want to get second opinion on it, and I saw you have done lots of effors in this area :) — revi 16:09, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Looks fine. I usually just place commentary to explain either to myself or to others what I sort of did. More explanation if I think that it needs more, or less if it is obvious.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:18, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, one question: Can COIBot configured to stalk a domain addtion on local wiki?(not xwiki) — revi 07:19, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
There are local reports Category:COIBot Local Reports‎, though generally it isn't designed to limit its focus, per wiki as COI and spam are just that, and it doesn't matter whether it is a local wiki or xwiki it is still spam, or CoI.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:51, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Then, how can I command to watch addition of some domain? — revi 09:57, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Available commands at Small Wiki Monitoring Team/IRC  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:55, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Template:Tps(Edit conflict.) - User:-revi, do you mean that you want a report for a specific domain? For that, on wiki, there is User:COIBot/Poke - you poke the domain in a LinkSummary template there, and COIBot should save a report for that domain 'shortly' (though it seems to have saving hickups at the moment, I hope to have time in the end of next month to look at those problems). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 11:56, 16 October 2014 (UTC)
Billinghurst: Thanks, but seems the commands need some permissions, but I don't have it :(
Beetstra: Thanks, that's what I was looking for! — revi 12:02, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

I have no specific opinion about your block on species. My comment was more generic.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:35, 19 October 2014 (UTC)


Re your question on IRC: What did you mean by aligning namespaces? I'm guessing it'll probably require filing a shell bug detailing what needs to be done? Legoktm (talk) 16:30, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

@Legoktm: Bugs exist. Talking about aligning/standardising NSs for the WSes, initially defining/declaring a standardised set(s) of NSs that the WSes will use, then working on migrating the WSes to the defined sets. Primary interest is declaring Index: and Page: so components can be set in the governing extension. All stuff that is discussive, such why a name, and managing expectations, so looking for a pointer of the direction (technical or community relationship within WMF)  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:09, 20 October 2014 (UTC)
