User script related to Wikidata sitelinks[edit]

Hi there DannyS712. I was wondering if you'd be willing to write/have the time to write/know of a script that would allow users to quickly remove a page on a particular wiki from the WD sitelinks on the corresponding item without navigating to WD. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Hiàn (talk) 02:27, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

@Hiàn: To clarify, when looking at, eg "Help" on enwiki (w:Help), have a button to remove the entry from wikidata:Q20033? Why would this be useful? I could probably make one --DannyS712 (talk) 02:29, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
That's about right. I know it sounds like a very niche area of editing (it probablydefinitely is) but I've been going through the "redirects connected to a Wikidata item" cat on Wikivoyage occasionally and I've been thinking a tool to streamline the process would be a bit helpful.
I'm not sure about whether people other than myself would actually use it - if that's sort of the general criteria for writing up your user scripts then this very clearly fails that. Hiàn (talk) 02:35, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
I should be able to whip something up --DannyS712 (talk) 02:36, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
Much appreciated Danny. Hiàn (talk) 02:43, 25 September 2019 (UTC)
@Hiàn: See User:DannyS712/RemoveWikiData.js - Sometimes the wikidata edit fails, can't tell why yet, so if it fails the first time it is retried once. Let me know how it works out for you --DannyS712 (talk) 00:57, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for all this, Danny, I'll begin using the script and report back when I have the time (tomorrow hopefully). Hiàn (talk) 01:40, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
I'm getting the sense I'm missing something, but do you happen to know where the button is? Hiàn (talk) 20:25, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
@Hiàn: it should be in the toolbar (same area as the "wikidata item" link) --DannyS712 (talk) 20:26, 26 September 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, looks like it's there (was a mistake with the script import on my end) and it works pretty well so far. Thanks for all the help again. Hiàn (talk) 20:41, 26 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for your help[edit]

Aff Com/News[edit]

Could you reconsider and push for translation on those updates/archives for 2019? While jawp is not presented as affiliated community, would you have it benefit from keeping updated of the larger circle please. --Omotecho (talk) 15:16, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

@Omotecho: Yes check.svg Done --DannyS712 (talk) 15:37, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
Thank you, great! Hope please confirm I have took the chance adding trans tags, or sorry if it goes against your plans. Cheers, --Omotecho (talk) 16:07, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

I think links to relevant phabricator tickets in the newsletter would be a good idea. Masum Reza 04:52, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
@Masumrezarock100: will do next time --DannyS712 (talk) 09:31, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
Sounds good. About that duplicated texts on your talk page, I didn't mean to do that. Wikiplus automatically posted those duplicates. This is a wikiplus bug and I have faced this problem before. Masum Reza 11:43, 9 November 2019 (UTC)


Hello Danny. What does it mean that you discouraged further translation of pages of the 2017 movement strategy? Regards, --Gereon Kalkuhl (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

@Gereon Kalkuhl (WMF): it means that, while translations are allowed, they are not a priority for translators and are less visible. I marked them as discouraged to try and direct translation efforts to more current pages - if a translator has the time to translate a page or two, I think its better to focus on the 2018 movement strategy, etc. than the 2017 pages, since those aren't as relevant. Hope this answers your question. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 23:34, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Global watchlist - Update 3[edit]


Hey, Could you make it a blue link? And is it necessary to add (via script)? ‐‐1997kB (talk) 10:41, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

It should always be a blue link... and probably not. I have a few improvements for that script planned at some point --DannyS712 (talk) 11:03, 24 November 2019 (UTC)

Global watchlist - Update 4[edit]


Hello there. I hope that this message finds you well. Would it be possible to add an exception to the script so we could use it on Stewards' noticeboard, please? If the reading of the code is right I see NS_MAIN is (rightly) excluded, but it happens some pages like this are on that namespace and marking stuff as resolved there easily would be nice. Thank you. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:05, 29 January 2020 (UTC)

Sure. Symbol wait.svg Doing... --DannyS712 (talk) 17:39, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done --DannyS712 (talk) 17:41, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll test it tomorrow. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 00:57, 31 January 2020 (UTC)

Can you pop on #IRC for a minute? #wikimedia. Easier than email. ~riley (talk) 07:39, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

I was literally about to log off, you just caught me --DannyS712 (talk) 07:40, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

Need help[edit]

User Surjection filed a Steward_requests against me. But there is a prehistory to this. More at: Wiktionary:Beer_parlour. I would be grateful if you read it. --Meatbowl (talk) 18:37, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

I'll leave this to the stewards --DannyS712 (talk) 23:35, 9 February 2020 (UTC)


I don't think anyone has said it, atleast recently, but thanks for your continous translation admin work. You keep popping up in my watchlist; please don't stop. ~riley (talk) 23:33, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

No problem --DannyS712 (talk) 23:34, 9 February 2020 (UTC)

Script request[edit]

Hey DannyS712, could you make a script that reverts vandalism and warns the vandal at the same time in Meta-Wiki? Thanks! CentralTime301 (talk) 22:48, 16 February 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't think I'm interested in making such a script, sorry --DannyS712 (talk) 01:08, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
Sorry for butting in Danny, CentralTime301, I think its better if we don't warn them automatically after revert, some/most of the vandal/spammer that come to meta are Long Term Abuser, or somebody who do personal attack and spread libel, the more you gave them attention the more they act, so remember, revert block ignore. Do not give them any warning just wait for admin to block then revert, or revert once and tell the admin.--AldnonymousBicara? 20:26, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
@Aldnonymous and DannyS712: ok. Might as well do undo for now. --CentralTime301 (talk) 12:38, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
