GS active scripts[edit]

I tried to customize (in fact, i18n)the text "X active admins" and "GS wiki" on my global.js but it doesn't work. Any help? (Feel free to modify that page if needed.) — revi 16:16, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, the documentation wasn't up to date here... customizing the interface using those configuration variables is no longer possible. If you want to contribute a translation (which would then be available to all users) feel free to poke me. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 18:12, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Well, I doubt if there is Korean users using this script (other than me), but I want it to be translated. :) — revi 23:03, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Hoo_man. I want to exclude this Meta-Wiki from using the global.js Tagger because I want to use a custom one for this project. However I am not able to find the correct syntax to do it. Is it possible? Could you please help me? Best regards. — M 16:56, 04 December 2014 (UTC)

Sure, Yes check.svg Done: [1]. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 21:56, 4 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you! It works. Best wishes. — M 21:57, 04 December 2014 (UTC)

Special:AbuseFilter/90 (2)[edit]

Hi Hoo man, while browsing the Global abuse filters (in this case Special:AbuseLog/57149), I saw text which looked very close to what filter 90 should catch, it was added in and as far as I can tell it should have been caught by your filter (" ffeededabgbcafec\n").

I can think of several explanations:

  1. opted in during the last 5 days
  2. filter 90 was disabled on December 3
    1. because it hadn't caught much spam lately, but there were false positives
    2. because all filters were temporarily disabled (e.g. processor overload)
    3. for other reasons
  3. I didn't interprete the rule correctly
  4. index.php sanitizes the output of the diff
  5. other reasons which I overlooked.

For most of those explanations, I would take me quite some time to falsify (or verify), while you (as as an abuse filter maintainer) know where to look. Could you take a look at it? -- 13:33, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

help pls[edit]

Hi; I am a student in Başkent University. ip is used by Başkent Üniversitesi in Turkey. But it was blocked in Turkish wikipedia for unlimited time. block begins: 23:15, 6 Feb. 2011. Since that time whole university can not make any edits in Turkish wikipedia. We university students want to edit turkish wikipedia. Local adminstrators say they are very angry with an old time user and they dont unblock th i.p. and they punish a whole university. It has been a long time and probably the person that makes them angry is graduate by now. Thank you for help.
