2016 Community Wishlist Survey

Hi,

You’re getting this message because you participated in the 2015 Community Wishlist Survey and we want to make sure you don't miss it this year – or at least can make the conscious choice to ignore if it you want to. The 2015 survey decided what the Community Tech team should work on during 2016. It was also the focus of Wikimedia hackathons and work by other developers. You can see the status of wishes from the 2015 wishlist at 2015 Community Wishlist Survey/Results.

The 2016 Community Wishlist Survey is now open for wishes. You can create proposals until November 20. You will be able to vote on which wishes you think are best or most important between November 28 and December 12. /Johan (WMF) (talk) via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 11:17, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

Yadkard translation?

Hi there. Is there a way to translate Yadkard to work for other wikis? While we have the Citoid now on Polish Wikipedia, I prefer to work in sfn-style refs anyway - and your splendid tool works with them. Sadly, there's no easy way to convert English WP's sfn to Polish odn template, let alone convert all those cite book, cite journal and whatnot to the single Template:Cytuj we use at pl.wiki (it's great, it formats itself basing on the fields you use). So, is there a way to add Polish as an option in Yadkard? Halibutt (talk) 20:18, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Hi Halibutt! Thanks for your interest in Yadkard. Unfortunately, as it currently stands there is no easy way to add new languages. It's not totally impossible though, for example there is also a localized version of Yadkard for Persian Wikipedia running at http://tools.wmflabs.org/yadfa/ . The problem is that each new language will require localizing a few Python/HTML/CSS modules, which is a technical and time-consuming work. I need to simplify the code to ease the process of i18n and add instructions on how to add new languages.
Another issue is maintaining separate web-services on tools.wmflabs.org which seems to be inefficient (both in terms of resources used and maintenance).
To address this issue I may need to create a single web-service which will allow users to localize the output by choosing their preferred language/project via a simple drop-down menu. It requires rewriting and changing the structure of some parts of the source code.
Alas, I probably will not be able to investigate these ideas in a near future due to lack of spare time, but I do have them in mind.
Dalba 06:30, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for the info, I'll stick to using it for en.wp for now then :) Halibutt (talk) 09:49, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

JSTOR account redistribution (The Wikipedia Library)

Hi - according to our records you received a free account for JSTOR through The Wikipedia Library. Because we’ve used up all of our allocated accounts, and it’s been some time since they were distributed, we want to redistribute any accounts that aren’t being used to users on our waitlist.

If you’re still using, or plan to use, your JSTOR access, no problem! Simply head over to the Library Card platform, log in, and request a renewal of your account. You should be able to do this from your user page, or the JSTOR signup page. If you can’t find the renewal button, or have any other issues or questions about this, please feel free to leave a message on my talk page. We’ll begin redistributing inactive accounts in September; if you request renewal after then we will only be able to reactivate your account if we have spots remaining. Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 13:32, 20 August 2018 (UTC)

Citer

does not work for any web-page on this news-domain, which is rapidly becoming a major source in Indian ecosystem. Citoid does not work, either. Also, please ask folks to report bugs over here rather than your Wikitech t/p. Wikitech is not under CentralAuth and we need to create a separate account to access it; even anonymous editing is disallowed. The lesser hoops to submit feedback, the more will be recieved. Regards, Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 15:30, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

@Winged Blades of Godric. I've updated citer. It should now be able to process ThePrint URLs. Also updated the talk page link. Thanks for the feedback. ‍Dalba 11:23, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Many thanks for your prompt response. Winged Blades of Godric (talk) 05:45, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Citer problem 2019-05-16 12:33pm PDT

Hi, currently dropping in a URL, https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2019-0708 & seeing this in response:

{{sfn | ''{{title}}''}}

* {{cite web | website={{title}} | url={{websiteUrl}} | ref={{sfnref | {{title}}}} | access-date=2019-05-16}}

and:

<ref name="{{title}}">{{cite web | website={{title}} | url={{websiteUrl}}}} | access-date=2019-05-16}}</ref>

Yours, Peaceray (talk) 19:33, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Seeing the problem in Edge, Chrome, & IE. Don't have access to Firefox on my current computer. Peaceray (talk) 19:37, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi, Peaceray. Unfortunately I don't think I can fix this one. Citer uses the meta tags on a webpage, if available, to gather the citation info. Looking at the source code of that webpage I can see the following:
    <meta property="og:title" ng-attr-content="{{windowTitle}}" />
    <meta property="og:site_name" ng-attr-content="{{title}}" />
    <meta property="og:description" ng-attr-content="{{pageDescription}}" />
    <meta property="og:type" content="website" />
    <meta property="og:url" ng-attr-content="{{websiteUrl}}" />
Even if I make Citer somehow detect the inappropriateness of the gathered data, there is currently no simple way for it to find the correct ones since that page requires a JavaScript-enabled browser to load completely, but Citer does not process the JavaScript portion of pages right now (for performance reasons, and also, it's a complicated process).
Dalba 00:35, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Ah, yes. OK, you shouldn't muck with things to handle a truly exceptional outlier. Peaceray (talk) 21:09, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Citer bugs

Hi, thanks for maintaining the citer tool, it is very useful for making good citations quickly. I've encountered a two bugs that I hope you might take a look at. First, some non-functional DOIs (particularly with the IEEE journals):

  • 10.1109/TIM.1985.4315297
  • 10.1109/TIM.1976.6312276
  • 10.1524/teme.1979.514524.jg.59

These DOI do seem to work on the DOI wikipedia reference generator, so maybe this is fixable? Second issue is something I've only seen with the APS journals, which work but sometimes are mysteriously missing the page number:

  • 10.1103/PhysRevB.71.045110
  • 10.1103%2FPhysRevLett.102.017002

The DOI reference generator also fails to work on these ones, so maybe APS just has bad metadata on their website. Let me know what you think. Forbes72 (talk) 21:35, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Hi, Forbes72! Thanks for reporting this. I fixed the issue for the first three DOIs. It was a bug in Citer, expecting the `volume` value to be numeral-only.
Regarding the missing page numbers, Citer is using http://api.crossref.org/ . For the last two DOIs crossref does not provide any page numbers, but Citer always adds a `|page=` to the generated journal template in hope of making it easier for the end user to add the page parameter manually.
Dalba 06:18, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
That makes sense. Thanks for improving the tool! Forbes72 (talk) 19:17, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
