Hoo User Page Bot - links

Your bot "Hoo User Page Bot" created a page (here, probably on other wikis too) with a link to m:Addihockey10. The link should be m:User:Addihockey10. Please check the links on pages before your bot mass adds them on Wikimedia projects, and fix this error.--Snaevar 18:50, 7 January 2012 (UTC) (sysop and bureaucrat on is.wikipedia)

I've changed the link and restarted the bot, but I can't say why I didn't noticed that, I took a look at the very first edit on ab.wikipedia this time as I do every time on such global synchs - Hoo man (talk) 19:26, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

You broke it

You broke this script. I does not work now :( --Anatoliy (talk) 14:40, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry... I've fixed it now, thank you for your report ;) - Hoo man (talk) 14:58, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

From Ko wikt


Danke für Deinen gelegentlichen Besuch auf Ko wiktionary. Da Du Dich auf Mediawiki verstehst, würde ich mal fragen, ob Du weißt, warum denn der Namensraum 4 in manchen wiktionaries nur in übersetztem Namen funktioniert, aber in manchen sowohl in englischem wie auch in übersetztem Namen: der Link [[Wiktionary:Main Page]] z.B. in Ko wird nicht auf 위키낱말사전:대문, sondern auf die englische Hauptseite umgeleitet, was ich eigenartig finde - in De, Ja etc. passiert so was nicht. Alle Namensräume sollten, sofern es übersetzte Version gibt, zweisprachig gesetzt sein. Ich habe dieses Problem auf Bugzilla (MediaZilla:33593) gemeldet, bis jetzt keine Antwort bekommen. Hast Du da eine schlüssige Antwort? --아흔(A-heun) 03:12, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

Ja, ich weiß (oder denke es zumindest) wo das Problem ist, es fehlen einfach die notwendigen Einträge in 'wgNamespaceAliases' (siehe, die wohl notwendig sind, wenn es einen lokalen Namen für den Projektnamensraum gibt.
'kowiktionary' => array(
        'Wiktionary'             => NS_PROJECT,
        'Wiktionary_talk'     => NS_PROJECT_TALK,
Leider kann ich da nichts machen, da ich auf diese Systeme keinen Zugriff habe - Hoo man (talk) 18:31, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Danke für die Auskünfte. Entwickler von Mediawiki scheinen das Problem für nicht schwerwiegend genug zu halten. --아흔(A-heun) 22:04, 17 January 2012 (UTC)


Hi! Could you please check this edit - almost everything seems to be OK save for the Wikify function in the upper menu (Викификатор, line 437). It doesn't work now (does not appear in the menu). --Al Silonov 20:30, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

That was an load order issue, thanks for the report. I've fixed that with moving the failing code into wikt:ru:MediaWiki:Editpage.js cause it's only needed when editing and that will solve the issue. Please clear your cache if it's still broken for you ;) - Hoo man (talk) 21:14, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! It works now. --Al Silonov 21:29, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Cookie for you

For all of your great work on the 2012 steward elections pages! I really wish I could use JS as well as you can. Ajraddatz (Talk) 22:12, 6 February 2012 (UTC)


Hi. Gäbe es eine möglichkeit dass dein Bot etwa 4000 seiten löscht wenn wir es auf irgendeine Weise markieren? Und wenn ja, was hättest gerne als Zauberwort? ex Wizard --SomeoneBehindYou (talk) 17:56, 17 February 2012 (UTC)

If you find the time…

Hi Hoo, should you have some spare time on your hands, would you be able to deal with these requests? I'd love to start using some of the tools in my global.js. Thank you so very much! m:Mark W (Mwpnl) ¦ talk 21:43, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Hoo User Page Bot

The bot just created "User talk:Mwpnl" on Commons including the quotation marks. See

This is obviously incorrect, particularly since the correct page User talk:Mwpnl without the quotation marks, already existed.      Jim . . . . Jameslwoodward (talk to me) 15:09, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Also in hewiki. I've moved the page to a name without qoates and deleted the original. GilCahana (talk) 15:15, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
Tanvir and I are going to fix those in a second, please hang on... thank you - Hoo man (talk) 15:16, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Quick change to User:Hoo man/useful links.js when you can

Hi, X!'s edit counter has been gone for a bit as the user retired, he passed on ownership of said edit counter to tparis, if you change:

usefulLinksDefaultUserTools.xEditCounter.url = '//$1&lang=$2&wiki=$3';


usefulLinksDefaultUserTools.xEditCounter.url = '//$1&lang=$2&wiki=$3';

the link will work again. Thanks a lot! Snowolf How can I help? 07:12, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, till now I hoped Soxred83 would come back and reactivate his account, but that didn't happen :/ - Hoo man (talk) 23:33, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Help with javascript

Hi Hoo man, you gracefully offered help on IRC with javascript/userscripts. I have the following problem. I created which works sort of. I want to expand it to use a form where I can select a date and a minimum number of edits since. The problem I'm having is with passing those values down the call stack. The number of parameters for the function calls are getting out of hand, but I also don't want to pollute the global namespace too much with loads of variables. What are the best practices here? Is it a good idea to wrap it all in a function and have the variables within that function scope? I'd love to hear what you think, kind regards, Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 15:06, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

I would indeed wrap it up into a var here (I wouldn't choose a function, cause I guess you only need one instance of it). Just like this:
var checkrange = {
	init : function() {
		//add links and stuff
	foo : function(bar) {
	abcde : 'fgh',
	ijk : 123
- Hoo man (talk) 21:08, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Oh and please close your commands with ;, leaving those out is very bad practice in JS - Hoo man (talk) 21:10, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
thanks a ton! I never properly understood why leaving out ;'s is a bad practice in JS, but I don't care much either way, so I'll pic a few of em up. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 21:43, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Just to show what a noob I am, would I do something like this:
var checkrange = {
	init : function() {
		//add links and stuff
	foo : function(bar) {
          return bar + ijk
	abcde : 'fgh',
	ijk : 123

or like this:

var checkrange = {
	init : function() {
		//add links and stuff
	foo : function(bar) {
          return bar + checkrange.ijk
	abcde : 'fgh',
	ijk : 123

or some variant of this:

var checkrange = {
	init : function() {
		//add links and stuff
	foo : function(bar) {
          return bar + this.ijk
	abcde : 'fgh',
	ijk : 123

Thanks again for the patience! Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 22:01, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Ok, the first one wont work cause ijk is neither a global var nor a var in your function, so you can't call it directly, the second one will work but the third wont (if you want to use this you have to wrap it all in a function and create instances then). Btw, the semicolons are recommended because leaving them can cause to problems where parsers don't get command ends properly (rare cases), slowdowns (I'm not sure about those, only heard of it), and it can break automated minification of the code - Hoo man (talk) 22:12, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks again for your help. The this. syntax does actually work, and I think it does look the best for now. This is much less messy than it was, so this is very appreciated! I can certainly see your point in the minification problem with the semicolons by the way! Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 23:43, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm sorry, you're right it works (I actually even used it my own, maybe I mixed it up with another language dunno). Just remember it doesn't work on sub objects, eg. wont work:
var a = {
    b : {
        foo : function() {
    a : 'b'
and there is no native way to access this (like this.parent) - Hoo man (talk) 23:54, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
I can see how that wouldn't work, it does make sense. It doesn't work on callback functions though. Aparently there is no lexical scoping on callbacks. Which is a shame I suppose, but I can live with it. You helped me a ton though. Martijn Hoekstra (talk) 02:53, 22 February 2012 (UTC)


Hi man! :) Kannst du, wenn du nächstes Mal bei vorbeischaust auch in s:ro:Categorie:Propuneri pentru ștergere rapidă (Speedy deletion requests) reinschauen und alles platt machen. Meine drei Löscher haben scheinbar dieses Jahr wenig Zeit. Danke.--Mishuletz (talk) 18:37, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

User talk:Mwpnl


Due to some bug in the Mediawiki software, moving an unpatrolled page in fr.wikt while suppressing redirection leaves that page forever unpatrolled. Please do not do that next time. Many thanks. --Pjacquot 22 février 2012 à 11:03 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't know that bug, is it already submitted to bugzilla? I'm going to keep that in mind ;) - Hoo man (talk) 14:34, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Well, you can patroll such a page, but it is not done easily. In this case it was (by mistake) done by a bot using the information from the list=recentchanges in the API. But I do not think this is a big problem. 'Forever' is aprox one month on svwiki, and cannot be much longer on frwikt. -- Lavallen (talk) 15:05, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll wait for the natural decay. --Pjacquot (talk) 07:20, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

I've changed it to$1 now cause I like that service and it doesn't limit requests as dnsstuff does (AFAIR). I'll watch chm's tool and by the time he makes the required code change, I'll bring it up again (using Wikimedia internal tools is always better) - Hoo man (talk) 22:58, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

Invitation to Berlin hackathon

Hi! Do you think you can come to this year's Berlin Wikimedia developers' event? Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 19:17, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I got smth. important on June 1 which I can't guarantee that it's movable... furthermore I don't fancy traveling though half Germany alone. But it would still be great to meet with the other developers/ admins/ ... from all around Wikimedia/ MediaWiki, so if I find a way, I'll attend - Hoo man (talk) 22:25, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
I understand if you can't make it -- but if you can, that would be great. And maybe another participant will be coming from your region and you can travel together. Sumana Harihareswara, Wikimedia Foundation Volunteer Development Coordinator 01:01, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Your bot on Esperanto Wikipedia

Hi, just to know your bot can add template softredirect ({{Softredirect|target}}) in pages of Esperanto Wikipedia. It's more simple ! Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 23:16, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Well, as the bot usually runs on many wikis and as it always uses the same text, it can't use text that relies on any templates, because many small wikis don't even have the very basic templates. Because of that the users need to subst them here on meta and use that code, that's not a perfect solution, but it at least works on all wikis ;) - Hoo man (talk) 23:21, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Slight problem with Sledge Hammer

On wikt:id: there is a problem with insecure content: is used instead of the secure variant. The problem is that I can not find its source. The local wikt:id:MediaWiki:common.css imports styles from w:id: MediaWiki:common.css but there I see only a secure link . Can you look into this? Ruslik (talk) 16:42, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

The problem was caused within the idwiki common.css which gets imported on idwikt, so I had to fix that (diff). As side effect I also fixed idwiki with that edit, so thanks for letting me know - Hoo man (talk) 17:55, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
You also fixed several other wikis, which import the same sheet. I still do not understand how 'https' turned into 'http'? By the way I found and an interesting stript at wikt:si:MediaWiki:Common.js. Ruslik (talk) 18:42, 26 May 2012 (UTC)

Another wiki that I can not fix myself is q:az:. I do not know where Base.js and InterWikiTransclussion.js are located. Ruslik (talk) 13:07, 27 May 2012 (UTC)

Fair use in Armenian Wikipedia

Hi Hoo man! Recently you started a discussion about usage of non free images in Armenian Wikipedia. We have been working on this issue for a while. Based on Armenian legislation we wrote a strict policy for the usage of non-free images. We have decided that any image that does not meet the requirements of this policy will be deleted immediately. Most of the files that have been uploaded in the past will also be deleted, since they don't meet those criteria. Anyhow, my question is: I requested Talk:Non-free content to add information about the EDP of Armenian Wikipedia, but I there was no reaction. Can I do it myself or only an admin of meta-wiki is allowed to do that? Best regards. --vacio 14:30, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I just realized I didn't have that page on my watchlist... I don't see a problem in editing it, it's not protected and we're a wiki, so be bold. - Hoo man (talk) 17:28, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

Bug on gnwiktiomary

I found an interesting bug on wikt:gn:. There is a js syntax error, which is not related to any custom script (as there is none). It seems to be cause by a redundant apostrophe in a translated system message. I actually do not know how to fix it. Regards. Ruslik (talk) 13:04, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for your report, fixed in (as it's a bug in the CentralNotice extension, it affects several wikis) ;) - Hoo man (talk) 13:50, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

There is also an odd problem on the idwikisource. Both Chrome and IE report that is loaded through an insecure connection. The image is from common.css of idwiki, which is imported by the idwikisouce. It looks like a bug—why is only one particular image affected? Ruslik (talk) 18:54, 2 August 2012 (UTC)

This seems to be a caching issue (I have tested it with both Midori (same rendering engine as Chrome) and Firefox with both Vector and Monobook), you might want to clear your cache and try it again? If it still doesn't work, try it again, after 24 hours and if it's still there after that... I have no idea :D - Hoo man (talk) 22:03, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
I, of course, cleared cache many times. In addition, I rarely use IE. So, when I opened this wiki for the first time in IE, its cache was empty. I have been observing this problem for several days and it is still there. Ruslik (talk) 07:23, 3 August 2012 (UTC)


This wiki includes some external scripts, which throw an error. I do not know how to fix this. Can you look at this wiki? Ruslik (talk) 17:56, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Question about Tagger

Hello, Nice to meet you. I have a question about your tagger. Can I have a question? I used it mass-repeat-editing. Because this work need more 2,000+ edit without bot, I'm granted temporary bot flag, and I use tagger. But, it is not processed bot edit. What can I do for processed bot edit? :) Thank you for your response, in advance! Sotiale (Talk·Contribs) 14:28, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

I've updated the tagger to support bot edits from now on (that option should show up in the tagger window if you got the bot right). If you want to use bot edits for the one click tagging (the drop down menu), you have to add the following to your personal JS:
if(typeof(taggerConfig) === 'undefined') taggerConfig = {};
taggerConfig.botEdits = true;

. That will mark all edits done with the tagger as bot edits per default. (If you don't see the new bot option, please clear your cache, thanks) - Hoo man (talk) 17:01, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm sorry to bother you.. Thank you so much :) Sotiale (Talk·Contribs) 23:52, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Bot for Featured image

Hello, I've seen that your bot update every day feature image @BS-Wikipedia. Can it do something like that in Lez-Wikipedia? Tonight we've chosen first Featured article, so the Main page got some empty space :).--Soul Train (talk) 20:20, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

I just did a first test edit on that page, so you can see, that it works :) But there are three more things that are unexplained so far: 1. It would be great if you could give me an edit summary to use on editing. 2. At which time should the bot do it's edits (UTC)? 3. Do you want to protect the page because it's highly visible? If you want to fully protect it, like it is on bswiki, the bot needs a sysop flag, if you want to half protect it, please wait some time, because the bot probably isn't yet autoconfirmed. - Hoo man (talk) 17:56, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
Well, at the moment there's no vandalism at this sub-page, so no need to protect it. I thing, updating time can be UTC+4 (Moscow time, also this is time-zone of Dagestan and Azerbaijan where the most Lezgi people are living).--Soul Train (talk) 20:12, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Ok, the bot is going to edit daily at 04:00 (UTC) without edit summary from now on ;) - Hoo man (talk) 12:40, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Hello, is it some bug with bot or something? It's not upgrade featured image for the last 4 days.--Soul Train (talk) 11:44, 30 August 2012 (UTC)
I couldn't find any information about occurred errors and a test run went fine, so I presume the toolserver is to blame here. I've changed the cron to run at 3:59 (UTC) now, in the hope that this can resolve the problem. As I'm going to be on a conference from tomorrow on, I wont be able to investigate this any deeper now, so please hang on for a bit in case the problem reoccurs.

OK, thanks!--Soul Train (talk) 13:30, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki talk:OSM.js

Hello. There's a editprotected request at MediaWiki talk:OSM.js which I think it will be better handled by you. Regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:11, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, thanks for the hint, would have been a huge security issue if someone just copied it over! - Hoo man (talk) 18:34, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Ajax Sysop

Hello, are you interested in helping kangaroopower with this issue? Otherwise, do you know who to ask? Thanks, Nemo 07:48, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

I'm terribly sorry, but I don't have the resources to face such a project now. You could ask Krinkle (who, probably is to busy as well) or PerfektesChaos (active JS dev. on dewiki, but I'm not sure he's up for work on others projects). Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 12:21, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Kurz vorm Kollaps

Hi, ich brauche mal wieder dein Skript-Wissen - siehe User_talk:MF-Warburg#Technical_help_is_requested_!. Man wünscht sich zusammenklappbare Vorlagen. Ich würde denen gerne einfach den folgenden JS- und CSS-Code einsetzen: [2] (von incubator:MediaWiki:Common.css) [3] (von incubator:MediaWiki:Common.js). Was ich damit sehe, ist, dass alle Vorlagen in dem bei mir verlinkten Artikel dann zusammenklappbar sind. Bevor ich damit aber Nebenwirkungen verursache und mir den Zorn sämtlicher Developer zuziehe - ist das vernünftig oder gibt es da besseren Code? (abgesehen davon, dass man die Show/Hide-Links noch übersetzen sollte etc.) --MF-W 10:01, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

MediaWiki talk:Common.css

Hello. There's an editprotected request at the sitewide common.css file. Could you please have a look at it? Best regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 19:54, 1 November 2012 (UTC) PS: well, that one highlighted my attention because it was tagged as editprotected, but checking the page there are some more. Regards. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 19:57, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

Smart rollback.js

I really need your help here, please! Wagino 20100516 (talk) 17:33, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Fixed, you should have taken the import code from the documentation which can be found at User:Hoo man/Scripts/Smart rollback - Hoo man (talk) 19:55, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
Thanks so much. Wagino 20100516 (talk) 00:41, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Active sysop script

Hi. I'm using your script for showing active sysops on projects. As I understand it, it shows if an admin has done a logged action within the last seven days. In small projects with few admin actions it can have the effect that the script shows zero as number of active admins, but the local admins is present doing normal editing. Is it possible to change the script so that it shows last edit instead of last logged action? -- Tegel (Talk) 22:48, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

I plan to combine both methods (last edit and last log entry), but this wont be fixed soon, as there are several other troublesome things about the tool which need to be fixed first and toolserver in general is almost unusable atm - Hoo man (talk) 00:40, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
OK. Yes, the Toolserver is an issue. I see one problem with my suggestion, and that is if an admin is active editing articles but doesn't care about admin stuff. -- Tegel (Talk) 19:45, 2 December 2012 (UTC)

Featured image code correction

Hello, I added temlate with description in this page which we can manually edit. Is it OK for bot?--Soul Train (talk) 04:15, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

I've altered the script which updates the page a bit, so it should be fine :) For now you have to notify me any time you want to permanently change the wikicode of that page as the bot script isn't able to only replace the image - Hoo man (talk) 23:19, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

User:Hoo man/Scripts/Active sysops

Hi Hoo man. I added your user script User:Hoo man/Scripts/Active sysops to the page Small Wiki Monitoring Team/Tools#User scripts as I noticed it was missing from the list and it's (imho!) very useful for other countervandalism helpers. Hope you don't mind. Happy holidays and have a great end of year! Best for 2013. With love, Trijnsteltalk 13:56, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Of course I don't mind... in fact I have to thank you for this. Happy holidays and good luck for 2013 from me as well ;) - Hoo man (talk) 20:51, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

why did you delete my article!?!?!?

Hello - why did you delete my article!!?!? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 02:20, 27 December 2012‎ (UTC)

Because the only purpose of the article (as far as I saw) was to advertise the links within it. Furthermore it was no dictionary entry (the aim of wiktionary is to build an open dictionary) ;) - Hoo man (talk) 02:27, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
