About the restriction that wikipedia pished on me[edit]

Why do I have to be sanctioned for rendering the right sources for any information those people needed. I just edited a little infos on the history of IDL. Why do I have to be punished for that? Adhesivecobra17 (talk) 13:58, 1 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It isn't much clear what you are referring to and what technical problems you are facing in particular. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 19:39, 1 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Account Deletion Should Be Allowed[edit]

I think while account can be easily added, account deletion should also be allowed. This may increase the number of accounts created. Because if there is no account cancellation, there may be those who don't want to become a member. Ekrembjk09 (talk) 22:45, 1 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Does Right to vanish cover what you would hope that "deletion" of an account would accomplish? -- BDavis (WMF) (talk) 23:42, 1 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Customize sidebar for some pages[edit]

I want to design a sidebar for particular pages. For example, I have some pages categorized in "Chemistry" and another pages categorized in "Physics". I just want to show "Chemistry" related sidebar and hide "Physics" related sidebar in "Chemistry" pages. Same for "Physics". Is it possible to do this? What kind of extension is needed? Thanks for helping! WentaoXu22 (talk) 06:48, 3 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This question is probably better suited for mw:Project:Support desk than this forum, but Extension:DynamicSidebar might work for you. If it does not, try following up at the MediaWiki support desk. -- BDavis (WMF) (talk) 21:49, 3 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Help Needed[edit]

Hello, This is Khattab. I am an interface admin of Bengali Wikiquote. We considered to add a working script as gadget. I added this to Gadget-Defination. But the gadget doesn't work.

I am adding URLs for checking.

@খাত্তাব হাসান: Hi, please follow mw:Help:Locating broken scripts to debug, and please explain why you try to load mediawiki.Title.jquery.ui and what that is... Thanks! --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 20:57, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@AKlapper (WMF) I was trying to find out which dependencies are not being loaded. AI Debugger says that (Maybe It's wrong) there is a JQuery dependency should be loaded. Then I added this. and still not working.
It's working when I use mw.loader.load but as a gadget, that's not working. I tried for debugging with Chrome, but I am confused why this one is not loading. খাত্তাব হাসান (talk) 11:34, 14 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@খাত্তাব হাসান: What is "AI Debugger"? Why would "AI Debugger" know about existing MediaWiki ResourceLoader modules? What makes you think that mediawiki.Title.jquery.ui exists? Have you read and followed the steps in mw:Help:Locating broken scripts? If yes, what is still unclear why it is not loading? Thanks, --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 12:12, 14 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@AKlapper (WMF) Ok, maybe it is for es8 and es6 conflict. now we (actually only the writer 😒) should work on this script again. Thanks a lot for your time. খাত্তাব হাসান (talk) 17:34, 15 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
