Problem with Tibetan Wikipedia font.[edit]

I found that Tibetan font css was changed by you, on https://bo.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css, so I hope you can help us to increase that font size, because we are unable to read such small font. on Dzongka wikipedia, they share same as us, but they got much bigger font, i found out that their https://dz.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css, they got big font size on css. hope you change it soon as possible, we are waiting long time for it. thanks in advance.

Need help[edit]

Hi Hoo man, I am admin on Hindi wikipedia. There some-one abused some users from two different IP's. I have blocked those IP's but is it possible to test those IP's. I mean which user is using those IP's? ☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 07:27, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Such a check is possible, yes. For this to happen you have to open a request at Steward requests/Checkuser. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 17:14, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
But to make a request at Steward requests/Checkuser, I have to give possible user's name. Isn't it?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 17:29, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Not necessary, just give whatever information you have and explain why you need the lookup. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 17:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I am putting my request.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Need help again[edit]

Hi, On the request of some users of bhwiki, I wanna update those templates, for this purpose I need Import rights on bhwiki. What should I do for Import rights on bhwiki?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:35, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

From which Wiki do you want to import pages? It might be a good idea to configure the Wikis you need to import from as import sources, so that administrators can import pages from them (that requires community consensus, but import rights do so as well). - Hoo man (talk) 13:03, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
I would like to import from hiwiki and enwiki. I am admin on hiwiki but I didn't do any work on bhwik, so I can't ask for admin rights on bhwiki but I can ask there for import rights. So, shall I start a discussion on that wiki?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 13:48, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
You could still ask for the "Transwiki importers" group which gives you the same import rights as Administrators have. But that would still require some community consensus (same goes for the configuration change) - Hoo man (talk) 19:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I am starting a community consensus on bhwiki.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 02:13, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi again, I started a community consensus on bhwiki at village pump for Transwiki importers rights. Two users supported me, if it is sufficient then please give me corresponding rights on bhwiki or please let me know, what else I have to do?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 14:10, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
For getting the actual rights, please go to Steward requests/Permissions, I can't do that per talk page request. Regarding what else to do: You have to quickly ask for consensus to add wikis to $wgImportSources, so that you can import from them (please make sure you ask for all wikis you want to import from, so that you don't have to do that twice). After that I can take care of the actual configuration change for you. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 08:55, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

┌───────────────────────┘
Thanks for your kind help. I did a consensus to add wikis to $wgImportSources at village pump and active users supported it. Now I don't think we will need more wikipedia's for import. The whole list is as:

  • Wikipedia Commons (commons)
  • Metawiki (meta)
  • Wikispecies (species)
  • German wikipedia (de)
  • English Wikipedia (en)
  • English wikibooks (en:b)
  • English wikiquote (en:q)
  • English wikinews (en:n)
  • English wikisource (en:s)
  • English wikiversity (en:v)
  • Spanish Wikipedia (es)
  • Persian Wikipedia (fa)
  • French Wikipedia (fr)
  • Hindi Wikipedia (hi)
  • Malayalam Wikipedia (ml)
  • Nepali Wikipedia (ne)
  • Dutch Wikipedia (nl)
  • Romanian Wikipedia (ro)
  • Russian Wikipedia (ru)
  • Polish Wikipedia (pl)
  • Portuguese Wikipedia (pt)
  • Simple English Wikipedia (simple)
  • Tamil Wikipedia (ta)
  • Urdu Wikipedia (ur)

Can you please configure it for bhwiki? In any other case please let me know where should I take it.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:22, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

I've just arranged it, so that this will happen on Monday (by Monday 16:00 UTC you should be able to import from all the sites you listed above). Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 14:24, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 19:19, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
... and this is Yes check.svg Done now! Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 15:18, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Other configurations of bhwiki[edit]

Hi Hoo man, On bhwiki, there are many problems like: w:bh:wikipedia:चौपाल shoud go to "https://bh.wikipedia.org/wiki/विकिपीडिया:चौपाल" but it going directly to enwiki. Similary, We want that https://bh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Import should go to https://bh.wikipedia.org/wiki/विशेष:आयात. Can you please configure these also?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 10:08, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Other this are also needed are like short forms: U:Name goes to User:Name, WP:Page goes to Wikipedia:Page etc.

One another problem I faced is:

Import failed: Can't save non-default content model with $wgContentHandlerUseDB disabled: model is wikitext, default for Module:Message_box is Scribunto

☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:17, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, but I've been travelling and attending Wikimania recently. I'm going to answer one by one below. If I miss something feel free to ask.
  • Having Wikipedia as namespace alias to विकिपीडिया requires a configuration change for which you need consensus/ inform the community.
  • The translation of special page names has to be done in MediaWiki core. I guess I can do that for you, if you create a bug on bugzilla.
  • Imports of Modules have to be targeted to the Module: namespace, if you select it as import target namespace, the import should work.

Again, On other wikipedia's (like hiwiki, enwiki, meta etc) <table class="metadata plainlinks ambox {{{class|}}}" style="{{{style|}}}" role="presentation"><tr><td>test</td></tr></table> gives me a box. But on bhwiki, there is no box. Why is it not coming properly. Can you please configure it?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 20:07, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
A CSS rule is missing here, if you want I can find that and add it to bhwiki's common.css
- Hoo man (talk) 09:55, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind help.
  • For first topic, I will start a consensus on bhwiki and after I will let you know. If I have to post somewhere else, please let me know.
  • I didn't create any bug on bugzilla. Today, I tried then I forwarded to the page https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/enter_bug.cgi . So, I wanna know, which type of bug I have to create?
  • I forgot the issue about import module. I will check it on bhwiki and let you know.
Can you please fix the CSS missing rule on bhwiki. With many thanks ☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 11:18, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
I've added the CSS rule, which you need (I hope that's all, if there's more needed, just let me know). Translating the special page names can be done on translatewiki, you don't need to create a bug (sorry, I had that wrong first). Once you have consensus for the namespace aliases, just let me know. - Hoo man (talk) 10:45, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for adding css rule. We also have updated it according to our requirement. On transwiki, I couldn't find special page names. We are making a list of required namspace aliases. After that we will do consensus and let you know. Thanks for kind help.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 13:03, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Use the link to translatewiki I've listed above, with that you will be able to translate the special page names (if you have the required permissions on translatewiki). - Hoo man (talk) 16:16, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Today, I got the write permission on translatewiki and I am able to edit that page. I have submitted few things but I think it will take some time in purge.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 16:43, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
