Thanks!

Thank you for helping ug.wiktionary to remove content. I want to know how to become an administrator?

Because there are many problems to be solved. For example: Restored several MediaWiki: file. Require an import permission. The need to protect the Module and Template Files. Etc. Thank you --Oyunqi (talk) 05:57, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Hi, you're welcome! (Temporary) adminship can be requested on Steward requests/Permissions, where you should start by asking for a temporary flag. - Hoo man (talk) 11:27, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
I'm going to try,thank you again. --Oyunqi (talk) 22:44, 1 January 2014 (UTC)

Hoo Bot on bs.wiki

Thanks for letting me know about Hoo Bot. Currently my script is working fine, so there is actually no need for Hoo Bot to work on that anymore. However, if you insist, which is also fine, you can pick up where you left and continue updating the picture. Furthermore, in my current script I have added the possibility of adding an image description (if available in Bosnian) from commons. So you would need to update your code if you haven't already done so. Note also that I have set the protection level of that page from "sysop" to "autoconfirmed" (offering enough protection in my opinion), which means that Hoo Bot does not need an admin flag anymore. I would therefore suggest to remove it. If you agree let me know so we can take care of it. -- Edinwiki (talk) 12:49, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

I've just disabled the cron job for the bot and will get the sysop flag removed. In case you need help again, just ping me. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 11:14, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Request for feedback on my GSoC'14 proposal

Hi Hoo man,

I am planning to work on the project titled "Tools for mass migration of legacy translated wiki content" this summer under Google Summer of Code. I have drafted a proposal for the same over the past few weeks. This project is going to help the translation adminstrators like you in a great way, as it would completely automate the tedious manual task of preparing a page for translation and then importing the translations into the Translate extension. You can check the proposal page for detailed information on how I plan to accomplish this.

As you would be an end user of this tool, it would be great if you could go through the proposal and provide feedback/suggestions. Your feedback would definitely help me improve the proposal as well help in creating an even better tool. You can do the same on the discussion page of the proposal or reply here, whichever is convenient for you. I look forward to hearing from you! Thank you!

P.S: I need to submit the proposal to Google by March 19, 2014.

Syncbot tool

Do you realize that Pathoschild's tool is also discontinued? I'm going on vacation, but I could look at taking it over in a few days when I get back. Ajraddatz (talk) 18:11, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I do... but I no longer am really willing to do this (and neither seems Tanvir), so that I just had to pull the plug. Feel free to take it over or do whatever you want with it. - Hoo man (talk) 18:12, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Special:AbuseFilter/90

Hi. Please either disable this or make it match \b[a-k]{16}$. It seems to use a different code every time. It might have even stopped (maybe Aldnonymous would know, but I haven't been in #cvn-sw much recently). Thanks. PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:46, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

You mean what you told me on #wikimedia-stewards? (new_wikitext rlike '\b[a-k]{16}\b$' & user_age = 0), Yes I do remember them, this was the case about mass spamming attack 3 days ago that reverted globally by Illuvatar and deleted by Tegel and TBloemink.--AldNonUcallin?☎ 03:53, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

@Aldnonymous: Log. Has it missed any of this kind of spam so far? PiRSquared17 (talk) 16:18, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
@PiRSquared17: It working, but on some non-GAF wiki it's not, and cvn-sw had to watch 5-15 spam everyday on those wikis.--AldNonUcallin?☎ 16:32, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
Articles already existing are also being spammed. Not only new page creations. --Glaisher [talk] 16:43, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Compact Personal Bar

Hi Hoo, I've mentioned you in this post on MediaWiki.org. Regards, Mathonius (talk) 03:56, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

A request!

Hi Hoo man, Our colleague on Ar Wiki User:Elph, experienced a problem, his account was hacked a couple of days ago and I have requested removing his sysop, bureaucrat and check user rights and have banned him upon his request. Now he wants to set this email address abbasalhelfy@gmail.com as his account email address instead of the old one. Can you help us doing so? Thanks a lot for your help. -- Samir El-Sharbaty (talk to me) 19:52, 2 May 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, but I need a prove to verify that this request is legit and that the user really wants this email change. - Hoo man (talk) 15:27, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Alright, this is a good question. I think the steward @Meno25: can help validate this request. -- Samir El-Sharbaty (talk to me) 15:07, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
I confirm this request. --Meno25 (talk) 16:16, 4 May 2014 (UTC)
@Meno25: It would be great, if you could get a few more users who know Elph in person that can confirm this request here. The current facts are rather vague and we would like to be sure about this - Hoo man (talk) 21:12, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
Hi Hoo Man. I confirm this request. I am user:Elph. Please see this diff. Thanks in advance.--Arqavan (talk) 15:37, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Hoo bot on wikidata

Hi Hoo man, A bot operated by you with user name Hoo Bot have removed a lot of wikidata links. So, now it is difficult to go to one wiki to another wiki. I came to know when I was going from Hindi wiki (hiwiki) page आचार्य तुलसी to Acharya Tulsi. Now I have fixed this one page but it will be a problem if the same happened with many pages. Please take some fast action.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 11:49, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

It has done a lot of unlinking please do it correct. It is making problem.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 15:33, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
The example given was a correct link removal, as the page was deleted at the time it was unlinked (See the logs). If you have any actions which really were incorrect, please let me know. My bot only unlinks deleted pages. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 18:24, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. I am sorry because I didn't see the delete date.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:31, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Removal from spam blacklist

Hi. Thanks for cleaning up the spam blacklist. However, it seems that at least one entry you removed (namely \bdurl\.me\b for durl.me) was still online. How did get the list of entries to remove? PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:44, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

That entry was on the list twice, so my script removed one instance. (Note: This is why I just reverted my changes, before I noticed it was removed because it was listed twice) - Hoo man (talk) 02:53, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
Oh, sorry. Didn't notice that... PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:00, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

I am sorry, I have reverted it for now. I think this needs prior discussion. First, some of the sites could be temporarily down, secondly, that they are down does not mean they can not be (ab)used (or even were abused when inactive - I could foresee cases where that is possible). I am also afraid that some of these will be resulting in squatting-cases (where the link goes to a place where either the traffic is valorised or for advertising purposes).

I do however see the concern that the list is very long, and maybe should be cleansed to upgrade usability / parsing speed (though I doubt that it is putting a large strain). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 05:59, 28 May 2014 (UTC)

Ok, thus I'll stop doing this. Please note that I've done this several times before (and each time removed much more domain names). Also please note that I use soa lookups, not a type ones. - Hoo man (talk) 14:14, 28 May 2014 (UTC)
That is not what I meant, Hoo man - I'd just prefer that it gets first listed for some time to allow for discussion. Although most of the domains that you remove are really the base-domains, which can easily be scripted, some rules are out to catch something wider ('\ba\.com\b' could be for 'http://something-a.com' and 'http://somethingelse-a.com'), etc. I just think that these removals should be suggested for removal first, left for 1-2 weeks to allow people to have a look at it and see if they recognise why something was added, and then removed. I do value the cleanup (per the second part of my previous remark), the list is way too long and likely catching stuff that does not need to be caught anymore. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 06:56, 29 May 2014 (UTC)

globalPageHistory for "Module:" namespace

Bytes tool

Hello! I just saw this tool and I was wondering if it's possible to see how many bytes are been added/removed on a single page by a specific user. Or, even better, a kind of merging with this other tool, in which I could see the list of users ordered by the number of bytes added/removed in a specific page. I wish I've been quite clear.

Please answer on my it.wiki talk page. Thank you, --Horcrux92 (talk) 10:36, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Need help

Hi Hoo man, I am admin on Hindi wikipedia. There some-one abused some users from two different IP's. I have blocked those IP's but is it possible to test those IP's. I mean which user is using those IP's? ☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 07:27, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Such a check is possible, yes. For this to happen you have to open a request at Steward requests/Checkuser. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 17:14, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
But to make a request at Steward requests/Checkuser, I have to give possible user's name. Isn't it?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 17:29, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Not necessary, just give whatever information you have and explain why you need the lookup. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 17:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I am putting my request.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Need help again

Hi, On the request of some users of bhwiki, I wanna update those templates, for this purpose I need Import rights on bhwiki. What should I do for Import rights on bhwiki?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:35, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

From which Wiki do you want to import pages? It might be a good idea to configure the Wikis you need to import from as import sources, so that administrators can import pages from them (that requires community consensus, but import rights do so as well). - Hoo man (talk) 13:03, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
I would like to import from hiwiki and enwiki. I am admin on hiwiki but I didn't do any work on bhwik, so I can't ask for admin rights on bhwiki but I can ask there for import rights. So, shall I start a discussion on that wiki?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 13:48, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
You could still ask for the "Transwiki importers" group which gives you the same import rights as Administrators have. But that would still require some community consensus (same goes for the configuration change) - Hoo man (talk) 19:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I am starting a community consensus on bhwiki.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 02:13, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi again, I started a community consensus on bhwiki at village pump for Transwiki importers rights. Two users supported me, if it is sufficient then please give me corresponding rights on bhwiki or please let me know, what else I have to do?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 14:10, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
For getting the actual rights, please go to Steward requests/Permissions, I can't do that per talk page request. Regarding what else to do: You have to quickly ask for consensus to add wikis to $wgImportSources, so that you can import from them (please make sure you ask for all wikis you want to import from, so that you don't have to do that twice). After that I can take care of the actual configuration change for you. Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 08:55, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

┌───────────────────────┘
Thanks for your kind help. I did a consensus to add wikis to $wgImportSources at village pump and active users supported it. Now I don't think we will need more wikipedia's for import. The whole list is as:

  • Wikipedia Commons (commons)
  • Metawiki (meta)
  • Wikispecies (species)
  • German wikipedia (de)
  • English Wikipedia (en)
  • English wikibooks (en:b)
  • English wikiquote (en:q)
  • English wikinews (en:n)
  • English wikisource (en:s)
  • English wikiversity (en:v)
  • Spanish Wikipedia (es)
  • Persian Wikipedia (fa)
  • French Wikipedia (fr)
  • Hindi Wikipedia (hi)
  • Malayalam Wikipedia (ml)
  • Nepali Wikipedia (ne)
  • Dutch Wikipedia (nl)
  • Romanian Wikipedia (ro)
  • Russian Wikipedia (ru)
  • Polish Wikipedia (pl)
  • Portuguese Wikipedia (pt)
  • Simple English Wikipedia (simple)
  • Tamil Wikipedia (ta)
  • Urdu Wikipedia (ur)

Can you please configure it for bhwiki? In any other case please let me know where should I take it.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:22, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

I've just arranged it, so that this will happen on Monday (by Monday 16:00 UTC you should be able to import from all the sites you listed above). Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 14:24, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 19:19, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
... and this is Yes check.svg Done now! Cheers, Hoo man (talk) 15:18, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Other configurations of bhwiki

Hi Hoo man, On bhwiki, there are many problems like: w:bh:wikipedia:चौपाल shoud go to "https://bh.wikipedia.org/wiki/विकिपीडिया:चौपाल" but it going directly to enwiki. Similary, We want that https://bh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Import should go to https://bh.wikipedia.org/wiki/विशेष:आयात. Can you please configure these also?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 10:08, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Other this are also needed are like short forms: U:Name goes to User:Name, WP:Page goes to Wikipedia:Page etc.

One another problem I faced is:

Import failed: Can't save non-default content model with $wgContentHandlerUseDB disabled: model is wikitext, default for Module:Message_box is Scribunto

☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 18:17, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry for the late reply, but I've been travelling and attending Wikimania recently. I'm going to answer one by one below. If I miss something feel free to ask.
  • Having Wikipedia as namespace alias to विकिपीडिया requires a configuration change for which you need consensus/ inform the community.
  • The translation of special page names has to be done in MediaWiki core. I guess I can do that for you, if you create a bug on bugzilla.
  • Imports of Modules have to be targeted to the Module: namespace, if you select it as import target namespace, the import should work.
- Hoo man (talk) 09:55, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Again, On other wikipedia's (like hiwiki, enwiki, meta etc) <table class="metadata plainlinks ambox {{{class|}}}" style="{{{style|}}}" role="presentation"><tr><td>test</td></tr></table> gives me a box. But on bhwiki, there is no box. Why is it not coming properly. Can you please configure it?☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 20:07, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
A CSS rule is missing here, if you want I can find that and add it to bhwiki's common.css
- Hoo man (talk) 09:55, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your kind help.
  • For first topic, I will start a consensus on bhwiki and after I will let you know. If I have to post somewhere else, please let me know.
  • I didn't create any bug on bugzilla. Today, I tried then I forwarded to the page https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/enter_bug.cgi . So, I wanna know, which type of bug I have to create?
  • I forgot the issue about import module. I will check it on bhwiki and let you know.
Can you please fix the CSS missing rule on bhwiki. With many thanks ☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 11:18, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
I've added the CSS rule, which you need (I hope that's all, if there's more needed, just let me know). Translating the special page names can be done on translatewiki, you don't need to create a bug (sorry, I had that wrong first). Once you have consensus for the namespace aliases, just let me know. - Hoo man (talk) 10:45, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for adding css rule. We also have updated it according to our requirement. On transwiki, I couldn't find special page names. We are making a list of required namspace aliases. After that we will do consensus and let you know. Thanks for kind help.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 13:03, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Use the link to translatewiki I've listed above, with that you will be able to translate the special page names (if you have the required permissions on translatewiki). - Hoo man (talk) 16:16, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Today, I got the write permission on translatewiki and I am able to edit that page. I have submitted few things but I think it will take some time in purge.☆★Sanjeev Kumar (talk) 16:43, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Special:AbuseFilter/90 (2)

Hi Hoo man, while browsing the Global abuse filters (in this case Special:AbuseLog/57149), I saw text which looked very close to what filter 90 should catch, it was added in https://sr.wikibooks.org/w/index.php?diff=18263&oldid=18262 and as far as I can tell it should have been caught by your filter (" ffeededabgbcafec\n").

I can think of several explanations:

  1. sr.wikibooks.org opted in during the last 5 days
  2. filter 90 was disabled on December 3
    1. because it hadn't caught much spam lately, but there were false positives
    2. because all filters were temporarily disabled (e.g. processor overload)
    3. for other reasons
  3. I didn't interprete the rule correctly
  4. index.php sanitizes the output of the diff
  5. other reasons which I overlooked.

For most of those explanations, I would take me quite some time to falsify (or verify), while you (as as an abuse filter maintainer) know where to look. Could you take a look at it? --80.114.178.7 13:33, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

I found that Tibetan font css was changed by you, on https://bo.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css, so I hope you can help us to increase that font size, because we are unable to read such small font. on Dzongka wikipedia, they share same as us, but they got much bigger font, i found out that their https://dz.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.css, they got big font size on css. hope you change it soon as possible, we are waiting long time for it. thanks in advance.

help pls

Hi; I am a student in Başkent University. ip 212.156.67.30 is used by Başkent Üniversitesi in Turkey. But it was blocked in Turkish wikipedia for unlimited time. block begins: 23:15, 6 Feb. 2011. Since that time whole university can not make any edits in Turkish wikipedia. We university students want to edit turkish wikipedia. Local adminstrators say they are very angry with an old time user and they dont unblock th i.p. and they punish a whole university. It has been a long time and probably the person that makes them angry is graduate by now. Thank you for help. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 212.156.67.30 (talk) 07:41, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
