Again on the incorrect template import

Template:Languages has a Lua error, but it's not a module; see history and info. Given phabricator:T72592 perhaps someone can achieve "editcontentmodel" right, but IIRC it's enough to delete the page and restore it. --Nemo 13:24, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

I deleted the template, then restored it, but the error still shows. Can you please guide us on which further steps we should take to solve this? —MarcoAurelio 13:31, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
Legoktm fixed it. See also phab:T85847. --Glaisher (talk) 16:24, 3 September 2015 (UTC)

Incomplete import

I do not have an admin right here, and almost everyday I am facing troubles with templates or other pages. Template:Multicol exists (43 revisions were imported in 2009. Can someone check Template:Multicol break and Template:Multicol end (from En WP)? --TitoDutta 10:30, 4 September 2015 (UTC)

I don't follow. Can you be more specific? Are you requesting import of a specific template or generally having trouble with templates? I checked the templates on enwp and they look.....fine? Regards. Theo10011 (talk) 18:11, 7 September 2015 (UTC)

Hi sysops. Wikimedia Chile is organizating a photo contest called Wiki Tour (like as 2014). We want a CentralNotice to spread the word in the projects and we are thinking in two sub-campaigns:

  • Both campaigns:
  • Campaign 1:
    • dates: Sep 15 2015 03:00:00 to Oct 15 2015 03:00:00
    • text-1: Si amas la comida chilena y quieres que una fotografía de tu plato favorito esté en Wikipedia, participa en Wiki Tour 2015.
    • text-2: Sube tu fotografía entre el 15 de septiembre y el 31 de octubre
  • Campaign 2:
    • dates: Oct 15 2015 03:00:01 to Nov 01 2015 02:50:00
    • text-1: Si tienes una fotografía de comida chilena y deseas que aparezca en Wikipedia, ¡apúrate en subirla a Wiki Tour 2015!
    • text-2: El plazo para subir fotografías finaliza el 31 de octubre a las 23:59

Closure of at least one RfC (then several more...)

I proposed this RfC regarding time limits for RfCs (a "meta RfC") and there is certainly much consensus, with the middle time in my eyes being about one year. I request an administrator:

  1. Evaluate the consensus for this RfC and then close it
  2. Based on consensus, update the RfC guidelines and close old RfCs

Cheers, --LT910001 (talk) 06:34, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

I noticed "ASS PUSS" written in red on Meta's front page a few minutes ago on. It might have been some template vandalism or central notice hack geolocated to my area. I saw it on my tablet but can't seem to find it on the PC now an hour later. Can someone check please, in case it happens again. Thanks. Theo10011 (talk) 19:44, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

Already reverted by Elfix. Matiia (talk) 19:46, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
Found it. Elfix reverted. Template vandalism. Thanks. Increase protection level? Theo10011 (talk) 19:48, 23 September 2015 (UTC)
