Survey link error fixed[edit]

Hi there, there was a error with the Inspire survey link that caused the survey to be shown as expired, but has now been fixed. The link in the above message should now bring you to the survey. Apologies, I JethroBT (WMF) 19:20, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

Oauth Consumer proposal[edit]

Greetings. I proposed an oauth consumer application: Wikigenomes, that you approved before. I have proposed another under my bot account MicrobeBot, called Chlambase, that specifies the callback URL. It was working, with a configured raw IP address then it expired. Now I have submitted a new proposal with the domain name "" as the configured url callback, while allowing consumer to specifiy callback url and I am getting different errors. Mainly E002 saying that I didn't supply a callback. I am using python mwoauth and including it. Not sure what is wrong, or who to ask about this. I can resubmit a proposal under this user account rather than my bot account if that helps simplify the situation as well. Cheers Putmantime (talk) 20:34, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Putmantime! Can you join #wikimedia-labsconnect and ping me (I'm "halfak" in IRC). It'll be easier to help you synchronously. :) --EpochFail (talk) 20:37, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Great! Connecting now. Cheers Putmantime (talk) 21:13, 13 April 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for the help and for approving so quickly! I just had to re-propose again unfortunately, to remove the www. from the url and clean up the name. Sorry about the inconvenience. No rush on the approval. Cheers Putmantime (talk) 22:23, 13 April 2017 (UTC)

Hi Again EpochFail! Wikidata user Djow2019 has taken over development of a Wikigenomes spinoff site I worked on called that will allow users to make some similar wikidata edits involving bacterial genomes. He put in a proposal for a new consumer license here Chlambase Proposal and hasn't heard back on approval after a few weeks. I was hoping you could help like you did for me?...or suggest who to reach out to?

Hi Putmantime! Sorry for the late response. Yes check.svg Done --EpochFail (talk) 20:34, 20 June 2018 (UTC)

OAuth - request for deleting a request[edit]

Hi, I've saw you've approved my testing OAuth request. I'd like to have Special:OAuthConsumerRegistration/update/ef7a36e4253bae2c27231cab71cb27de deleted as I've requested it mistakely. Thank you in advance! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:38, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Martin Urbanec, The best I can do is reject that request, so I've done that. Please feel free to ping me again here again if you want me to look at a future consumer request for you :) --EpochFail (talk)

Template:Research project[edit]

This template is transcluded in 400+ pages. Is semi-protection needed? --George Ho (talk) 15:02, 30 April 2017 (UTC)

George Ho, we haven't had a problem so far, but we also haven't had any contributions with non-confirmed users to this or related templates over years. So I guess that semi-protection sounds like a fine idea to me. We might want to also protect the dependencies and redirects.

Do whatever feels necessary. :) --George Ho (talk) 01:40, 1 May 2017 (UTC)

Research:Content persistence[edit]

I saw that you have contributed to Research:Content persistence, which I can praise for your good work. I can't tell whether it's still in progress or fully completed. Also, adding "research project" without indicating the status would result in the big red "X" with "failed" input or something. BTW, your talk page is getting longer. Any plans to archive old messages? --George Ho (talk) 19:31, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Hi George Ho! Thanks for the praise re. Research:Content persistence. It's not really a research project but more of documentation page. Whereas Research:Measuring edit productivity is more of a project page. That project has been on my back-burner for a while. I pick it up whenever I get a chance to extend it. I've recently got some interest in turning the data processing job into a recurring thing. That would allow me to really start exploring Research:WikiCredit. --EpochFail (talk) 20:37, 8 May 2017 (UTC)
You're welcome. :-) --George Ho (talk) 20:44, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Your files here[edit]

Hi! Could you take some time and move your files here to Commons? Or, at least, provide some description and licensing information for those which do not have it, such as File:Vandal fighter bots.png (it is not the only one with the problem). I would hate deleting them, but without the information and according to Meta:Fair use they would have to go if not fixed. Thanks! --Base (talk) 11:52, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

Oh wow. I must have uploaded those before I really knew how to use commons effectively. I'll get to it. Thanks for the ping, Base. --EpochFail (talk) 22:08, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done! All files licensed by me as CC-BY-SA, moved to commons and deleted from meta. :) --EpochFail (talk) 16:35, 14 October 2017 (UTC)

Research:Civil Behavior Interviews[edit]

I'd be into participating. I've been the most active editor/steward of the en.Wikipedia Manual of Style (a continual hotbed of site-wide conflict) for years, wrote w:en:WP:HOTHEADS, am behind the ongoing efforts to overhaul the en.WP Arbitration Committee's discretionary sanctions system, etc.  — SMcCandlish ¢ >ʌⱷ҅ʌ<  04:17, 28 July 2018 (UTC)

Approx deletion rate for established articles[edit]

Originally posted at w:WT:Articles_for_deletion

Are there stats anywhere for the number of established articles deleted each day (i.e. not via WP:AfC/WP:NPP). The stats were very useful for the number of newly created articles that are deleted (meta:Research:Wikipedia_article_creation), but I couln't find any equivalent for deletion of established articles. Any rough useful, detailed stats a bonus! T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 02:09, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
