Hello. I came here as you asked. So, what was wrong. Thank you very much. IKhitron (talk) 11:25, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi IKhitron. Let me start by saying that right and wrong aren't very useful categories, usually. There is no need for polarizing language among people who collaborate :) As I wrote: This team is good and consistent in flagging items for Tech News consideration. Next time, please add the relevant tag to the task, or suggest that is added, so that they are also aware and can help with wording, in case. TY! Because the Editing team is pretty independent already when it comes to TN, a very last minute addition that they have no opportunity to comment or collaborate on looks unnecessary. So I am simply recommending using the Phab tag next time, should you find that they may have forgotten about it. Writing TN is as collaborative as any other process, and your help in making sure everyone gets better at doing it is welcome! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 11:45, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
And I promissed you to add this tag in the future. But my question was about your replic "I don't think the line that was added to Tech News about this change is accurate". What was wrong in the text I added to the issue? Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 13:40, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Oh, I thought you meant something else. I just think the item could be a bit more precise. I understand that it was reworded a bit later, and I hope the current language doesn't leave any space for confusion. However, that involved double-checking with the team, a bit of scramble, etc. Again, not a big deal, but avoiding similar situations is the direction which my previous advice aims at. Take care, TTYS! --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 13:49, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
OK, I see. Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 13:51, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Tidy to RemexHtml[edit]

Hello, Elitre. I read your message about replacing Tidy with RemexHtml at fywiki, where I am an administrator. Not everyone has studied computer science, you know (or wants to). The instructions you refer to are completely incomprehensible. If you can't explain what's going to change and what we're supposed to do about it in plain English, you might as well not have placed this message. Also, according to this LintErrors list you mention in your message, we at fywiki have 24,370 errors we should somehow repare (although how we should do that remains entirely unclear). With 2 active administrators that is just not going to happen. Ieneach fan 'e Esk (talk) 15:18, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Question about translation[edit]

Can we translate the page into other languages? (text "We are not fundraising in your country") In the sidebar menu in ruwiki (Википедия:Форум?uselang=en), this link is shown in Participation/Donate. qqx-link does not work, but qqx exists for other pages (changed country to uk in link). --Sunpriat (talk) 19:45, 9 July 2018 (UTC)

We have a translation in Finnish language, see It's translated at donate:Template:CountryNope/FI. I don't know who made the translation, maybe some third-party company. Stryn (talk) 21:24, 9 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll ask the author of that page (Pcoombe). --Sunpriat (talk) 01:37, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Is this sorted out now? If not, may ask you contact the fundraising team about it :) --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:16, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, found team irc on Fundraising and wrote them there. --Sunpriat (talk) 17:44, 10 July 2018 (UTC)


The July/August Remex rollout seems to have broken w:yue:Template:nowrap begin and w:yue:Template:nowrap end (which in turn come from w:en:Template:nowrap begin. See w:yue:Template:Golden-Melody-F - the template now shoves everything into one line. Can this be fixed? Deryck C. 16:11, 21 August 2018 (UTC)

Maybe? Let's ask User:Whatamidoing (WMF) and User:SSastry (WMF) though. Elitre (WMF) (talk) 16:45, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
Fixed. SSastry (WMF) (talk) 15:37, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist Survey[edit]


You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Question about pageviews[edit]

Hi. In ruwiki we sometimes analyze different data for articles. And we saw several anomalous peaks of views.

For example we can not explain the short peak in unpopular articles:

Is it possible to somehow investigate whether it was a computer failure (сould this be a wiki-bug), an attack of bots (сould this be a strange use of Wikipedia services; was it in a short time (by the hour)), interest only from one country (it is unlikely that these are views from a link from another site) or something else(is it normal or not)? --Sunpriat (talk) 23:38, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

@Sunpriat: Hi, I asked a dev and they suggested that you should file a phabricator task with this information (and perhaps one or two more examples, if you're discussing other specific pages at Ruwiki), and tag it with #reading-analysis -- I suggest using the "File a Request" link at the bottom-left of the workboard -- then the experts in that area should be able to help tell you more details. These types of anomalies apparently do happen all the time, but I'm not familiar with the details (i.e. common reasons) beyond that. Cheers, Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 19:59, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
Ok thanks. Filled it in phab:T212963. --Sunpriat (talk) 19:26, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
