Фонтан для СахаВики и ТуваВики[edit]

Привет! Мы проводим марафон для тюркоязычных вики и вот наткнулись на проблему. Почти для всех википедий создали Фонтан, где есть активный админ, кроме Саха и Тувинской. И вот, просьба к тебе чтоб для них тоже создал бы. Детали напишу внизу.

Саха Вики
  1. Код для новых статей:
  2. Код для старых статей: (здесь больше ничего не нужно)
  3. Время: 1-30 июня (как для новых статей, так и для всего конкурса)
  4. Размер статьи: мин. 2000 байтов и 150 слов (консенсус жюри и прочее не нужен)
  5. Баллы: 1-5
  6. Жюри: User:HalanTul
Тува Вики
  1. Код для новых статей:
  2. Код для старых статей: (здесь больше ничего не нужно)
  3. Время: 1-30 июня (как для новых статей, так и для всего конкурса)
  4. Размер статьи: мин. 2000 байтов и 150 слов (консенсус жюри и прочее не нужен)
  5. Баллы: 1-5
  6. Жюри: User:Agilight

Будут вопросы, напиши мне. Заранее спасибо, --Mehman 97 09:41, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Mehman97, привет! Для саха всё сделал, правда я не знаю, как на этом языке «дополненные», поэтому второй назвал просто Түүр марафона 2020 +. На тувинском я вообще не нашёл, что писать в название, поэтому написал по-русски. Если надо поправить, скажите, на что. Le Loy 06:52, 7 June 2020 (UTC)
    • Спасибо, все в норме, пусть будет как есть. --Mehman 97 14:44, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

Fountain tool for WikiKata[edit]

Hello. I would like to have a Fountain tool for an online editathon from 1-31 July 2020 called WikiKata in Malay Wiktionary. I hope you could make a Fountain tool for me. Thanks in advance! --Tofeiku (talk) 08:52, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi Tofeiku, please provide the following information:
    • What's the editathon's name in Malay language?
      • WikiKata
    • What is the exact start/end time in UTC?
    • Who are the jury members?
    • Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the article is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
    • What are the submission criteria? Are only new articles accepted? What is the minimum size requirement (in bytes, characters and/or words, excluding references and templates)?
    • What is the marks' system? In WAM it was 'accepted/not accepted', but you can also have additional points or penalty points.
  • Thanks. Le Loy 11:00, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
    • What's the editathon's name in Malay language?
      • WikiKata
    • What is the exact start/end time in UTC?
      • 16:00 UTC 30 June 2020 - 15:59 UTC 31 July 2020
    • Who are the jury members?
    • Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the article is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
      • Nothing to add to the talkpage.
    • What are the submission criteria? Are only new articles accepted? What is the minimum size requirement (in bytes, characters and/or words, excluding references and templates)?
      • New and old articles are accepted. Minimum 100 bytes.
    • What is the marks' system? In WAM it was 'accepted/not accepted', but you can also have additional points or penalty points.
      • I want to have 'accepted/not accepted' option. I also want additional points for smaller edits which carry 0.5 mark.
      • --Tofeiku (talk) 11:16, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
        • Tofeiku, it is not possible to use non-integral marks. You can multiply everything by 2 and have 0, 1, 2 points as a mark system. Is that OK? Le Loy 23:06, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
          • That works too. Maybe the additional point is 1 and new article is 2. --Tofeiku (talk) 02:27, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
            • Tofeiku, here you go: Enjoy! Le Loy 04:39, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
              • Thank you for making it for me. How different is this tool from the Asian Month version like the markings, etc? I have only used this in Asian Month. --Tofeiku (talk) 04:48, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
                • Should be VERY similar except for that there are 2 buttons: 1 point and 2 points :) Le Loy 05:01, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Additional buttons[edit]

  • Is it possible to add more mark for each section? Wiktionary follows a strict format and a simple article must have a meaning section. Pronunciations, synonyms, etc sections are optional. --Tofeiku (talk) 00:58, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
    • Tofeiku, sure. You can have many individual buttons that add 1 point (for example, if there are several criteria), many buttons that add different amount of points (+1, +1, +3, +4, +4 etc) or just one control that allows you to choose the overall score (say, from 0 or even −5 to 50). Like this: Would you prefer individual buttons or one control? Le Loy 00:09, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
      • Individual buttons would be better. I want new created article +2, expanded in existing article +1, having each other section in an article +1. For example, a newly created article with Pronunciation and Synonyms section would be 4 marks. Can the tool detect new created article and the sections automatically? --Tofeiku (talk) 03:33, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
        • Check the point system now please, is this what you were asking for? There are 2 buttons for new and expanded + a single control to assign up to 6 points for individual sections.
        • 1) yes 2) no. If you look at the article from the jury tool you'll see that articles that were not created during the editathon have a red date in the upper right corner. Le Loy 04:19, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
          • Yes exactly like the screenshot. In this competition, they can expand articles that have been created before the competition. Would that be a problem? Also, can you add a bonus article button too (+1)? --Tofeiku (talk) 04:53, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
            • Nah, no problem. The jury members will have to estimate how much was added / improved manually though. Added the +1 button as well! Le Loy 05:13, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
              • Thank you very much! Can you screenshot the buttons of the tool? I want to show it to the jury members on how to use it. --Tofeiku (talk) 05:33, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
              • Also, please add these usernames as the judges, Awang Rablah, Mutiara1 and Josak Siam. Thank you! --Tofeiku (talk) 11:06, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
                • Tofeiku, done! Click here to see the process :) Le Loy 22:06, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
                  • Can you reduce the requirement to 50 bytes? Thank you. --Tofeiku (talk) 13:01, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

Extension date[edit]

Hello. Please extend the end date to 15 August 2020 15:59 UTC. And also decrease the byte limit to 10 bytes. Thank you! --Tofeiku (talk) 02:50, 30 July 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi, sorry for the wait, all done. Le Loy 05:47, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Error 500[edit]

Hello, Fountain is not working, please fix error 500. Thank you a lot. Patriccck (talk) 21:09, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Фонтан для ТатВики[edit]

Здравствуйте. Как добавить свои статьи, у меня Фонтан не открывается (не появляется Добавить)? Спасибо.--Әмир (talk) 13:32, 28 June 2020 (UTC)

  • Әмир, здравствуйте! Какую ссылку вы открываете? Le Loy 22:13, 28 June 2020 (UTC)
Le Loy, здравствуйте. Вот эту ссылку: m:Turkic Marathon 2020/Rules & Guidelines/Fountain.--Әмир (talk) 10:00, 29 June 2020 (UTC)
      • Frhdkazan, в базе нет марафонов с такими названиями. Сделаете? Le Loy 11:39, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Extending WikiKata[edit]

Hello. Can you extend the final date until 15 August 2020. Thank you. --Tofeiku (talk) 05:38, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Error code 500[edit]

Hello! can you fix Error 500. Fountain tool isn't working for me. Thanks in advance. YAHYA (talk) 12:32, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

Request for a new edit-a-thon tool[edit]

Dear Ле Лой, I would like to request for setting up our new edit-a-thon on your Fountain tool. The event's name is "Bulan Sejarah Indonesia 2.0", which is a continuation of Bulan Sejarah Indonesia. This event will start on October 1, 2020 at 00:00 UTC and end on October 31, 2020 at 23:59 UTC.

If it is possible, please configure the tool so it will only accept a new-created article with at least 3,000 bytes and 300 words.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks for your help! Be safe, Rachmat (WMID) (talk) 14:25, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi Rachmat, I can set it up for you but I need to know who are the jury members. Alternatively, you can set it up yourself by clicking Create new on the main page. Le Loy 21:01, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
    • forgot to ping: Rachmat (WMID). Le Loy 23:12, 23 September 2020 (UTC)
      • Hi, Le Loy! Thank you for your response. I have set up an event, however, I couldn't open the tool I created. Could you please check it at this link. I tried to change my browser (to see if it is okay in other browsers), but the tool keeps loading. I wonder if the problem is from my side. :) Thanks! Rachmat (WMID) (talk) 07:58, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
        • Rachmat (WMID) the thing is, if an editathon is created by a non-admin of the corresponding language edition, it needs to be approved by an admin. The idea behind this is so that vandals do not create offensive editathons. I've approved yours, next time any admin can do it here. Le Loy 00:56, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
          • Very nice, thank you very much! One more question if you don't mind: if I would like to reconfigure the tool, for example, we modified the rules thus the criteria of articles submitted by participants that already set on the tool need to be changed, how do I do that? Is it possible to do by myself? Rachmat (WMID) (talk) 07:06, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

I understand now. Thank you for your kind assistant! Have a nice day! :) Rachmat (WMID) (talk) 02:37, 28 September 2020 (UTC)

Wiki of functions and Abstract Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Ле Лой. I was wondering if you would be able to help translate some content related to the Abstract Wikipedia project. In particular: this short message I plan to send next week; and the intro and first 2 sections (and optionally more!) at Abstract Wikipedia/Wiki of functions naming contest. As a multilingual user, I also hope you might be interested in watching the main project page, and participating more in that entire project in the future, if you're not already! Much thanks if you are able to help with this, and I hope you have a good weekend. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 23:34, 25 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Hi Quiddity, I've translated the 1st link (3 messages). Le Loy 02:03, 26 September 2020 (UTC)
    • Thank you! Let me know if you have any questions about the project itself. :) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 19:49, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

Minimum number of votes[edit]

Dear Ле Лой, in the German language Wikipedia we have a lot of judges this year. I remember an alert, when not all judges have votet for an article. Can you add an option to silence the alert, when a minimum number of judges have votet, i. e. 3? Thank you in advance, --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 06:15, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Dear Sebastian Wallroth, done! If you look into any editathon's /config, you'll see that on the Jury tab there now is a Minimum number of marks per article setting that is 1 by default but you can set it as high as the number of the jury members. Le Loy 01:47, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
Dear Ле Лой. Thank you. What is the exact effect of this setting? Is the e help page for the administration of the tool? If not, can I help to create one? --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 05:56, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
Dear Sebastian Wallroth! Here's a little explainer :-) Hope it's reasonably clear.
Say, if we have 7 jury members and the setting is 3. There are 150 articles in the editathon. All of the articles were marked by 2 jury members or more so here we see "0 articles need to be marked"
Now let's change the setting to 3. Now there are 39 articles that have only 2 marks. And now we see that I can help with all of them
Let's look at a different editathon. Here we have 3 jury members and the setting is 2. As a jury member, I see that 115 articles need marks (there are no marks there or only 1; less than the setting). At the same time, only 62 articles need MY mark -- I've marked the rest! One of the other 2 jury members need to put their marks there Le Loy 07:07, 17 October 2020 (UTC)
There is a help page on enwiki: en:Wikipedia:Fountain. Feel free to update it! Le Loy 07:09, 17 October 2020 (UTC)

Фонтан для «Вики любит Кавказ» — новый язык[edit]

Доброе утро. Скоро начнётся второй конкурс «Вики любит Кавказ 2020». По сравнению с прошлым годом в северокавказских разделах будет добавление — Аварская Википедия (av), для которой надо будет создать «Фонтан». В качестве члена жюри можно сделать меня (участников там очень мало, но хотя бы один намерен стабильно создавать статьи).--Soul Train (talk) 11:20, 26 September 2020 (UTC)

  • Приветствую, Soul Train. Сейчас создать «фонтан» можно без моей помощи, но если она всё же желательна, мне нужно больше информации. В прошлом году для всех разделов были разные правила, в этом году они такие же или для всех одинаковые? Если что-то поменялось, прошу указать для каждого языка
  1. Код языка
  2. Название на языке марафона
  3. Время проведения по UTC
  4. Минимальный размер статьи (слова, байты, символы). Можно ли принимать старые статьи?
  5. Какой шаблон добавляется на СО?
  6. Какие оценки? (например 1—3 балла + кнопка +1 для больших статей)
  7. Жюри.
  • Спасибо! Le Loy 23:09, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
    Решили всё делать в таблицах для единообразия. — Soul Train (talk) 22:37, 12 October 2020 (UTC)


Can you add Turkish translation for editathons tool? I translated it 4-5 months ago. Thanks --ToprakM 13:33, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi ToprakM, I'll try to add it soon. Thank you for translating it! And sorry for the long wait. Le Loy 22:44, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
How long will this take? --ToprakM 21:46, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
I hope you get it done soon --ToprakM 23:54, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

Is editathons running now?[edit]

I'm not able to access. --Andyrom75 (talk) 08:47, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi Andyrom75, which editathon are you trying to access? Le Loy 23:08, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
this link and this link. Any idea? --Andyrom75 (talk) 23:15, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Andyrom75, could you please send me a screen shot or describe what exactly you see on your screen? Le Loy 23:26, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Same scenario for both links.
Top line a pen on the left and language+my name+log out on the right.
Bottom line Please contact Le Loy if you have problems with this tool. Translate this page.Technical Information..
Mid line: nothing but moving diagonal lines ... like it would load something...
--Andyrom75 (talk) 23:44, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Andyrom75 could you please try again and then click "Technical information"? A zip file will show up; save it and email it to me the: Le Loy 00:05, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
I got file named "report" without any extension. I've mailed you the content (plain text) via mail. --Andyrom75 (talk) 00:38, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Fountain tool for WAM[edit]

Will Fountain tool be ready to use on 1 November as earlier year, or must each language version apply at Fountain tool as French and Japanese versions have done?! Deryni (talk) 22:54, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi Deryni! You can do either: if you create one on your own, I won't make a duplicate. If you don't, I'll make it for you. Le Loy 23:09, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! Then I'll wait for you, as every year. Deryni (talk) 07:12, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
I suppose Fountain Tool asian-month-2020-sv/add will function by midnight!? (Looking forward to WAM 2020.) Deryni (talk) 22:22, 31 October 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, it's up! Le Loy 01:42, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Fountain tool for a certain edit-a-thon[edit]

Hi, I sent an edit-a-thon yesterday, but today I need to include, but a name as members of the jury. Would there be a way to add that extra name? Juan90264 (talk) 01:38, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Juan90264, I can answer you. I got a similar issue and I've solved adding "/config" at the end of the URL. You can change anything from there. --Andyrom75 (talk) 17:05, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Andyrom75: I can't add the missing organizer, due to the "/config" link, giving as forbidden (403) when saving. What do I do? Juan90264 (talk) 18:58, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Ле Лой: Since you are the creator of the "Fountain" system; could make certain edits here? On the beginning page, check the option "Consensual vote" and on the last page "Jury", you can add this name "Allice Hunter". Juan90264 (talk) 19:29, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi Juan90264, done! You need to be an admin of the editathon's language edition to use /config. Le Loy 21:39, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
@Ле Лой: Thank you, but we missed the "Consensual vote" option! Juan90264 (talk) 21:43, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

@Ле Лой: Could you make another edition here? on the last "Jury" page, you can add this name "Athena in Wonderland". I hope not to bother! Juan90264 (talk) 22:15, 28 October 2020 (UTC)

Can you resolve the above request? Juan90264 (talk) 19:00, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi Juan90264, done! Le Loy 01:42, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
@Ле Лой: Thank you! Juan90264 (talk) 01:53, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Fountain tool for WAM[edit]

Hi! The fountain tool creation rules say "To approve an editathon, you must have an admin flag in the corresponding language Wiki-project.", neither me nor my co-jury member is an admin in our home wiki. How can we create it then? Teemeah (talk) 14:06, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi Teemeah, you can ask me or any admin from your home wiki. If you don't create the WAM editathon yourself, I'll do it for you. Le Loy 21:42, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Could please create it then? It would be difficult to find an admin who'd come and do this on time, also having to learn a new process just for this. This admin rule should be somehow be revisited and other user groups added too. Being an admin is not a guarantee to anything. Trusted users should be allowed to create an editathon. In most cases anyway it is not admins who organize these kind of events. Cheers. Teemeah (talk) 10:09, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
There is something wrong, someone created this fountain page where me and Ogodej are jury: But the name is odd, what is WikiUral? This is supposed to be Asian Month... I'm confused. :) Teemeah (talk) 09:59, 31 October 2020 (UTC)
Hi Teemeah, it's a different editathon that Niklitov created for his Ural region-related subcontest WikiUral.
The WAM page is Le Loy 01:44, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Dear Teemeah, I made an invitation to the WikiUral subcompetition. Did not work out? Ping not working? Sorry! — Niklitov (talk) 01:53, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Word counting[edit]

I've made some test with the Preview/Show tool and I've noticed that the tool do not consider the text inside a bullet list. As a mere example look at voy:it:Roma (disambigua) whose word count is 0.

This should be an easy fix; could you support?

More complex is the following that is quite necessary for Wikivoyage where almost all the articles are based on the voy:it:template:listing. Almost each element is described in this way (these are the Italian name, but each language version has teh equivalent template):

* {{listing
| nome= | alt= | sito= | email=
| indirizzo= | lat= | long= | indicazioni=
| tel= | numero verde= | fax=
| orari= | prezzo=
| descrizione=

Is quite crazy that the word count for voy:it:Pest is just 377! :-D

Is it fixable? --Andyrom75 (talk) 15:22, 27 October 2020 (UTC)

Hi Andyrom75, this is by design. Fountain encourages users to write coherent text instead of lists with individual words. Disambiguation pages usually do not participate in editathons. If your project wants to allow them, you can delete the minimum size requirements and allow the jury members to decide if the page is big enough for a "Yes" mark. I think Wikivoyage is quite unique in this: most other projects do not format their pages as long lists. Le Loy 21:45, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
The disambiguation case was just an example to show you the wrong word count. In order to have a clean and correct word count, can the tool analyze the HTML rendered page instead of the wikicode? --Andyrom75 (talk) 21:55, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Andyrom75 the tool does analyse the HTML. The fact that it ignores <li> is deliberate. Le Loy 23:27, 27 October 2020 (UTC)
Can this rule be overridden for Wikivoyage? If not it would be impossible to use this tool on Wikivoyage. PS As written by email, I'm not able to delete "WAM2020 - Wikipedia Asian Month 2020" that is a duplicate of "WAM2020 - Wikivoyage Asian Month (Italiano)". --Andyrom75 (talk) 08:49, 28 October 2020 (UTC)
Andyrom75, yes, the local organisers can create an editathon with their own settings. Or do you mean you'd like me to create it for you? Le Loy 01:45, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
I mean, can fountain words count consider the bullet list for Wikivoayge? Currently we are forced to count the words with an external tool. --Andyrom75 (talk) 07:03, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Andyrom75, it is a difficult task. I would have to take into account all kinds of footnotes and reference lists to exclude them but not the main page text. Le Loy 07:45, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Consider that in Wikivoyage we don't use references and notes. --Andyrom75 (talk) 10:34, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
I'll look into it. Le Loy 01:21, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
Any update? --Andyrom75 (talk) 09:08, 10 November 2020 (UTC)
Please let me know to evaluate future use of this tool. --Andyrom75 (talk) 15:54, 1 December 2020 (UTC)
Last reminder to not disturb you firther. Without any response I'll consider this tool not suitable for Wikvoyage. Thanks in any case for your support during WAM. --Andyrom75 (talk) 20:43, 20 December 2020 (UTC)
Hi Andyrom75, sorry for the wait. I looked into it and it seems like I can make this change but there is one problem. Most of the sections are wrapped into templates like {{to do}} and these templates add a <div>. I exclude divs from the count because they are used in image captions and other block inserts (that aren't tables). Would the Wikivoyage community prefer 1) counting these captions and blocks as well or 2) to change the templates so that they do not add divs? Le Loy 03:00, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
I've looked into it:voy:Template:Listing and I've seen the presence of a BDI tag (originally it was a SPAN tag), but I haven't seen a DIV tag. Could you tell me where you see it?
In any case, the whole the "listing family" (see, do, drink, listing, eat, sleep, etc.) it's featured by the class vcard. I think you can use this class to differentiate the listing block from others. What do you think? --Andyrom75 (talk) 08:35, 21 December 2020 (UTC)
Hi Andyrom75, done! Please check. All the editathons in Italian Wikivoyage are now automatically calculated this way. Le Loy 22:10, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Excellent! Next time we'll use it I'll be glad to test it :-) --Andyrom75 (talk) 13:39, 27 January 2021 (UTC)

Фонтан для конкурса[edit]

Можете сделать "Фонтан" для конкурса "Месяц Азии" в Википедии на эсперанто? --Fenikals (talk) 15:47, 31 October 2020 (UTC)

  • Fenikals, получилось? Если нужно, попробую помочь! — Niklitov (talk) 01:47, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Fenikals, да, конечно: Le Loy 01:49, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, Le Loy! I am the second jury member for Esperanto. Could we please get also a Fountain instance for Esperanto Wikivoyage in Incubator?

Hi KuboF Hromoslav, I'm very sorry but Incubator is not supported as of now. I hope to get to it at some point. Le Loy 23:32, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thanks anyway! I hope that this is last time we are organising something in Incubator (at least, with current wikimedia projects...). --KuboF Hromoslav (talk) 19:55, 3 November 2020 (UTC)

Add as jury member in WAM-2020 in Bengali Wiki[edit]

Hey, add me as jury member in Bengali Wiki in WAM-2020. Here is link: [1] Thank you—ImranAvenger (talk) 14:50, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi ImranAvenger, do other jury members agree? @Marajozkee, @Moheen, @Szilard, @ZI Jony. Le Loy 01:50, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
Hi Le Loy, Szilard and ImranAvenger was requested to be part of our jury. I added Szilard and declined ImranAvenger as jury due to lack of experience. Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 04:41, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
@ZI Jony:, I was a jury member in WAM-2019, besides I reviewed many articles you can check. Why do you say I have lack of experience?—ImranAvenger (talk) 06:32, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
@ImranAvenger:, I've reviewed you last year works, and based on that I've said. Actually directly saying lack of experience is wrong, you need more experience on it. I'm not confident to add you, but I'll let Moheen and Marajozkee to review your request to be part of the jury in this year. Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 14:31, 2 November 2020 (UTC)
@ZI Jony: There were no complaints in WAM-19 for reviewing any articles. And you don’t give me any specific criteria which I didn’t follow. What are you based on and measured that I ain't experienced on it? You should have removed my name from jury board in BN-Wiki after completing a discussion as well as left me a message for how can I maintain the rules of jury. I hope you'll get what I've said. Thank you —ImranAvenger (talk) 15:05, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Template of WAM for Portuguese Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Le Loi, can you please add the template WAM talk 2020 in the judging tool for Portuguese Wikipedia? Thanks and greetings. Athena in Wonderland (talk) 19:12, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Athena in Wonderland, it's already done! Le Loy 22:22, 2 November 2020 (UTC)

A problem with edit-a-thon WAM in Portuguese[edit]

Good morning, I come to report a problem that is being caused in edit-a-thon [asian-month-2020-pt]; the problem is this: "A jury (Renato de carvalho ferreira) from the aforementioned edit-a-thon came to tell me that only being able to send articles to edit-a-thon and cannot judge the articles [There is no extra button "Judge"]. And now come to ask what is causing the problem?" Thank you in advance!!! Juan90264 (talk) 05:58, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Juan90264! Could you please ask this user to open Fountain again, see if the button is there and if it isn't, ask them to click the "Technical information" link at the bottom of the page (it will create a file) and send me the file. Le Loy 22:50, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
Ok! Juan90264 (talk) 23:21, 8 November 2020 (UTC)
@Ле Лой: Just a small question: "How can the file generated by Fountain Tool be sent?" Juan90264 (talk) 00:03, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
Juan90264, click the "Technical information" link at the bottom of the page, it will create a file. Le Loy 00:25, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
@Ле Лой: Ready! I notified the user what I said to do; and now just wait for the user (Renato de carvalho ferreira). I appreciate your help! Juan90264 (talk) 00:38, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

Blocked Accounts[edit]

Hi Le Loy, we have a problem with blocked users at the German language contest. Accounts that are blocked in the German Wikipedia add random articles to the contest. Is it possible to block accounts in the tools that are blocked in Wikimedia projects? --Sebastian Wallroth (talk) 12:04, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi Sebastian Wallroth, currently there is no mechanism to do that. I'll add a check for that ASAP. Le Loy 22:54, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

Asian Month, catalan edition[edit]

Hi, is there a way that Fountain could accept the article Drets del col·lectiu LGBT al Kirguizistan? the author used some translation tool and the article appears as created on the 31.10 at 23:49 h. Therefore it is not admited. However, the article was not live till november. The author is complaining and asks for a solution. I would like to compute the article in the wikiproject, but unfortunatelly I have no rights despite being jury member. Thanks! --F3RaN (talk) 19:28, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

Hi F3RaN, absolutely. German Wikipedia has the same problem because of how their translation tool works. I'll add this article when Labs DB issue is resolved. Le Loy 21:19, 11 November 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia Asian Month 2020: Fountain tool[edit]

Dear organizers:

Fountain cannot accept new articles temporarily because of a problem with the Wikimedia Labs database. It will be back ASAP. Please don’t feel panic. Let's keep fingers crossed for it.

Question for Fountain[edit]

Hi. I have a question for Fountain and the judging of articles. An article can be judged by a jury after the end of the Asian Month (and any contest at general) or not? NikosLikomitros (talk) 15:05, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

@NikosLikomitros: Yes – until December 31, per Wikipedia Asian Month 2020/Rules#Wrap-up: Before 2021. Gikü (talk) 15:57, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

Fountain 500[edit]

Hello, a few hours till the end of WAM 2020 and Fountain does not work. It is mistiming... Is that maintenance? When will it be working? Thanks for reply. --Patriccck (talk) 16:18, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

The same problem also exists in the Greek WAM's fountain. Because a few hours are remaining for the end of the contest, if the problem endures what will happen? There will be a kind of extension or not? NikosLikomitros (talk) 16:31, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
I think that we could set in /config, that users can add articles retroactively (but they cannot add articles created in December). I think it is the best solution. Patriccck (talk) 17:33, 30 November 2020 (UTC)

I had those users not added yet @Majd7597, Omar MYH, Simazarustom, Noor Bilal Alsarayreh, Mirnaalassaf, and Demamakhadmeh: so could you please open the submitting button for additional days for me to add them as they are new comers who informed us about their contributions recently.

2021 African Month[edit]


Can you configure the Fountain tool for the new edition of African Month from 1st may to 31 may please ? Also I will give you the jury in few days (in march I think).

Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by AirSThib (talk)

  • Hi AirSThib, sure. I need you to provide me with the following information:
    • Where is the editathon happening? (German/Indonesian/Arabic Wikipedia/Wikivoyage/Wikibook etc)
    • What's the editathon's name in the project's language?
    • What is the exact start/end time in UTC?
    • Who are the jury members?
    • Is there any template to add to the talkpage after the article is submitted? Does it have any parameters?
    • What are the submission criteria? Are only new articles accepted? What is the minimum size requirement (in bytes, characters and/or words, excluding references and templates)?
    • What is the marks' system? In WAM it was 'accepted/not accepted', but you can also have additional points or penalty points.
  • Thanks. Le Loy 10:02, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
  • French Wikipedia
  • Mois africain Wikipédia 2021
  • 2020-05-01 00:00:00 UTC+0 / 2020-05-31 23:59:59 UTC+0
  • Actually I don't know, is it possible to add them after ?
  • {{Article Mois africain 2021}}
  • New articles or existing articles with the "ébauche" status. We need to do something like 300 words.
  • Yes/No, 1-5 points (with half points), 0.5 if this is a good article and 1 points if this is a quality article.
Thanks, I hope it will be okay for you :) AirSThib 🌌 Cyclist stars cafeteria 🚴 10:15, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
  • It it possible to add the jury later; I'll add you there temporarily and will replace you with the actual list later
  • It is not possible to check if an article has an ébauche template (or any other template)
  • Points have to be integer numbers (1. 2. 3...)
The rest is all good! Le Loy 04:01, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Just being curious about the Fountain[edit]

Is there any kind of backlog, to show when and how frequently an moderator accepted, rejected, or completely deleted the application of a certain participant? —— Eric LiuTalk 05:27, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi Ericliu1912, currently Fountain contains no analytics of any sort but there is an API that is open to anyone who wishes to use the data about marks and jury members who assigned them :-) You can access it from the Network tab of your browser or by substituting the code of your editathon here instead of the word TITLE:

Greek version of Wikigap[edit]

Hi. Could you delete the three pages for the Greek Wikigap in Fountain? Two of these are set to end in August 4th (wrong date), while all are set to begin on March 6th. As the beginning date was reset to March 8th in order to be coterminous with Wikigap Challenge (the international contest for women organised by Swedish wikimedians) and all of the titles, WikiGap 2021, Wiki Gap 2021 στην Ελλάδα are already used, I ask you to delete this three editathon-related pages in order to register them under the correct title and date.
