IP blocked[edit]

Hi Hoo Man, My isp address has been blocked, so that i cannot improve the page on Thomas Szasz. I am a real person, with a lifelong interest in Applied Ontology, and regard Thomas Szasz as a man of exceptional insight and truthfulness.

Szasz deserves better than to have his ideas represented in the past tense, as if they are no longer valid. A common and grievius error by commentators that i edit out of my own electronic library because it dulls the potency and immediacy of important ideas. I have a registered name as an editor [unless it expired], but i ended up here.

hello hoo man, I made a review about China Famine in Italian... italian speech in the article was very poor, I rewrite it in a better way keeping your original fonts in the wici voice... I was blocked, unfirly in my opinion... the sense ok wikipedia is give the best information is possible, if I made a mistake I'm sorry. Please remove my lock. Many thanks

Better hashing alhorithm for unique reference names[edit]

Hi, we've been implementing the functionality mentioned in this task description, namely generating unique reference names for references created from Wikidata (and solving some adjacent problems), in ruwiki (after T175725: Deploy HTML5 sections to WMF production was done for ruwiki and some things broke). Do you have any thoughts on which algorithm is better suited for generating hash values for references? I've done my modest research and stopped at fnv164 as it is fast, and 64-bit hash reduces collision probability to a negligibly small value. But maybe I am missing something.

The choice hash_algos() gives is the following:

"adler32", "crc32", "crc32b", "fnv132", "fnv164", "fnv1a32", "fnv1a64", "gost", "haval128,3", "haval128,4", "haval128,5", "haval160,3", "haval160,4", "haval160,5", "haval192,3", "haval192,4", "haval192,5", "haval224,3", "haval224,4", "haval224,5", "haval256,3", "haval256,4", "haval256,5", "joaat", "md2", "md4", "md5", "ripemd128", "ripemd160", "ripemd256", "ripemd320", "sha1", "sha224", "sha256", "sha3-224", "sha3-256", "sha3-384", "sha3-512", "sha384", "sha512", "snefru", "tiger128,3", "tiger128,4", "tiger160,3", "tiger160,4", "tiger192,3", "tiger192,4", "whirlpool"

Thanks in advance. If you cannot answer, but you know somebody who can, please tell. Jack who built the house (talk) 03:09, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Account renamed[edit]

Hi, Hoo man. I came to rename an account with 50k edits, by mistake. I realized that this account has more than 50k edits after accepting the change. I know that our policy says that "accounts with more than 50,000 edits altogether should not be performed [without supervision of a sysadmin]. Can you see if all is right, please? I'm sorry if something is wrong, and my apologies for it. Jmvkrecords (Intra talk) 16:47, 23 November 2017 (UTC).

GS delete[edit]


Could you, if you have time, take a look at User:Snowolf/GS delete.js please? I heard a steward talking about it and that steward said the script doesn't work. I tested this as well and came to same conclusion. As this script is in use by people (mostly stewards and global sysops) it would be nice if this would work. With kind regards, Wiki13 talk 14:47, 10 March 2018 (UTC)
