globalPageHistory for "Module:" namespace[edit]

I noticed this tool doesn't work with the Scribunto namespace:

This would help with mailarchive:wikitech-l/2014-June/076921.html. Could you fix that? Thanks! 23:52, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

toolserver -> toollabs[edit]

Just noticed that your user page still points to toolserver, so just thought that I would mention that.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:01, 18 June 2014 (UTC)

Bytes tool[edit]

Hello! I just saw this tool and I was wondering if it's possible to see how many bytes are been added/removed on a single page by a specific user. Or, even better, a kind of merging with this other tool, in which I could see the list of users ordered by the number of bytes added/removed in a specific page. I wish I've been quite clear.

Please answer on my talk page. Thank you, --Horcrux92 (talk) 10:36, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

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)
