Каму перашкодзіў існуючы спіс інтэрвікі? Хто захацеў яго "скараціць" і з якой мэтай? І хто пазбавіць мяне ад прагляду змен у маім спісу назірання, зробленых у вяікай колькасці гэтым ботам? Змены бота засмецілі спіс!!!--VladimirZhV (talk) 16:11, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry I don't speak your language. Please see Wikidata/Help which should explain what is happening to interwiki links. Legoktm (talk) 16:21, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I'm sorry I don't speak your language.--VladimirZhV (talk) 18:24, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
According to User:Base, VladimirZhV is not happy that bot is flooding his watchlist, and he is "angrily asking to whom[?] existing list of interwikis interferes". So does that clarify things? πr2 (t • c) 18:41, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

Enlaces interlingüisticos en la enciclopedia wikipedia en lengua española[edit]

Hola usía, llamado Legobot o Legoktm o como fuere que sea tu nombre. Me he cruzado, tiempo hace ya y en repetidas ocasiones, con alteraciones y modificaciones en los artículos enciclopédicos de wikipedia en español donde desaparecen los enlaces interlingüísticos por algún tipo de traslado de esa información a algo nuevo llamado wikipedia, pero al realizar esta automática acción robótica se incluyen erratas provenientes de versiones anteriores del artículo, por lo que toca revertir la edición automática de tu programa de edición de wikipedia (y alguien/otro robot deberá volver a hacerla, esperemos todos que la próxima vez lo haga bien). Esto ha sucedido en el artículo de w:es:Gerona, véa usted el diferencial entre ediciones: [1]. Atentamente le envía una cordial salutación Felipealvarez (talk) 21:27, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Legobot@huwiki[edit]

Hi! Your bot reverts some edits while removing interwiki links. Example1, example2. Please fix your bot's script, otherwise we have to block your bot. Thanks, Hunyadym (talk) 15:24, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the note, I'm investigating right now and have shut off the bot. It *should* detect for editconflicts, but apparently isn't. Legoktm (talk) 20:38, 17 March 2013 (UTC)
This has been fixed and is running again. Legoktm (talk) 17:08, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Legobot@eswiki[edit]

There are arround 40,000 articles with local iw links in eswiki. Can you run your bot again? --Kizar (talk) 00:04, 25 March 2013 (UTC)

Yup running again now that the editconflict bug is fixed. Legoktm (talk) 17:09, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Hmm?[edit]

See [2] and ch:Kombetsasion:Fanhaluman#Missing_interwiki_links. Can you explain, reply to the message, etc.? πr2 (t • c) 03:26, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata[edit]

Hi ... i need that you must remove Interlink it:Tarantula (Maria Vasquez) because no one has yet created the page, makes me a favor? --Angelo.1961 (alias Bestione) 13:47, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Legobot@lawiki[edit]

Hello Legoktm, la.wikipedia still has a large number of local interwiki links and even a lot of unconnected pages. If you have the time and resources, I would welcome it if you could run your bot there! Greetings, --UV (talk) 20:36, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

New option on interproject links[edit]

Hi, thanks for participating in the RFC for interproject links. There is a new option that might be interesting to explore. Please check Dropdown next to title 1 and Dropdown next to title 2. They are part of Option 5.--Micru (talk) 14:31, 25 April 2013 (UTC)

Deprecated toolbar[edit]

Hello, you said you have a script to easily search some text on all wikis. Given bugzilla:47872, could you make a list of all *.js pages (in User or MediaWiki namespace) containing mwCustomEditButtons please? --Nemo 08:41, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

.js.js?[edit]

Or just .js? ;) PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:29, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

Heh, thanks :D Legoktm (talk) 23:31, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

bugzilla:42715#c33[edit]

Can you fix this as well, or is it unrelated? I added a comment to bugzilla:44841 too, if you're interested. I just happened to find the error when looking at EdwardsBot edits, looked for a bug, and found that one. PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:14, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Anyways, thanks for bugzilla:41637#c12 PiRSquared17 (talk) 03:15, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Modifications to be made on the LT page of the European Ombudsman[edit]

Hello,

I would like to suggest following changes to the LT version of the European Ombudsman page, which was last modified by you March 2013:

- The name of the European Ombudsman has to be corrected- P. Nikiforos Diamandouros.

- I think it would be useful to add that the institution was created with the Maastricht treaty.

- Info that new ombudsman has been elected - Emily O'Reilly (new EU Ombudsman as of 1 October, add also the election date 3 July 2013), Ireland.

Thanks

Huh? Which article are you talking about? Legoktm (talk) 00:52, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
(FYI: This IP is from the European Parliament.) The article is Europos Ombudsmenas. Your bot edited it in March 2013. I actually happen to speak Lithuanian a bit so I may be help you (User:Vogone speaks it at an advanced level), if you can't figure out what to change or need help with grammatical cases, but I think that's not needed in this case.
To the writer from the EP: Thank you for reporting this. If you know any English-Lithuanian translators, they may be able to help with the text. If not, ask me, User:Vogone, or a native LT speaker like User:Hugo.arg or User talk:Martynas Barzda. Legoktm does not speak LT. He just operates a bot (program) that deals with linking translations of articles together.
More to the writer from EP: the name "P. Nikiforos Diamandouros" is already in the text after the LT rendering of the name. (In Lithuanian, names are often translated/transliterated to use LT grammar.)
Recommend you contact a native LT speaker. If none are available, ask me.
Regards, PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:00, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Help test better mass message delivery[edit]

Hi. You're being contacted as you've previously used global message delivery (or its English Wikipedia counterpart). It doesn't feel so great to be spammed, does it? ;-)

For the past few months, Legoktm has built a replacement to the current message delivery system called MassMessage. MassMessage uses a proper user interface form (no more editing a /Spam subpage), works faster (it can complete a large delivery in minutes), and no longer requires being on an access list (any local administrator can use it). In addition, many tiny annoyances with the old system have been addressed. It's a real improvement! :-)

You can test out MassMessage here: testwiki:Special:MassMessage. The biggest difference you'll likely notice is that any input list must use a new {{#target:}} parser function. For example, {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales}} or {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales|test2.wikipedia.org}}. For detailed instructions, check out mw:Help:Extension:MassMessage.

If you find any bugs, have suggestions for additional features, or have any other feedback, drop a note at m:Talk:MassMessage. Thanks for spamming! --MZMcBride (talk) 05:25, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Beginning of MassMessage, end of EdwardsBot[edit]

Hi. You're being contacted as you're listed as an EdwardsBot user.

MassMessage has been deployed to all Wikimedia wikis. For help using the new tool, please check out its help page or drop a note on Meta-Wiki.

With over 400,000 edits to Wikimedia wikis, EdwardsBot has served us well; however EdwardsBot will no longer perform local or global message delivery after December 31, 2013.

A huge thanks to Legoktm, Reedy, Aaron Schulz and everyone else who helped to get MassMessage deployed. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:36, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

bugzilla:52510 (Echo and FlaggedRevs)[edit]

Hello Legoktm, I'm really happy and very grateful that you have taken on Bug 52510 - Echo should provide notifications about your revision being approved or rejected on wikis with FlaggedRevs enabled. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please let me know if i can be of help, for example communicating with german Wikipedians (on technical matters i am not able to help, I'm afraid).

  • Regarding your to do list point: custom icon (Echo's checkmark icon is used now) is this one, right? Echo (Notifications) modules icons Reviewed.png
  • There is commons:Flagged_Revisions and a FlaggedRevs icon: FlaggedRevs-2.png which could be used, maybe its color should be changed to green, according to this, Notification icons should be 30x30 pixel monochrome graphics that use the following color scheme: Black for negative actions, Green for positive actions, Blue for neutral actions

Anyway, thanks again! --Atlasowa (talk) 17:15, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome :)
That is actually User:Matma Rex's todo list, I just didn't change it. That is currently the check mark being used, yes. I'm not sure whether it makes sense to use a different icon for a flagged revs patrol versus a "normal new pages patrol", but I don't have an opinion either way really. Legoktm (talk) 02:14, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

You're very active on a lot of wikis[edit]

Are you part of Wikimedia Foundation staff? TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 18:03, 18 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes, but I was active on "a lot of wikis" before I became a staff member. Legoktm (talk) 18:27, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
Well, you're quite active here as well. Would you like to be made sysop at least, so you could do more vandalism work? TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 02:15, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Having sysop here might be useful in some cases, but I doubt I have any time to do any anti-vandalism work. Legoktm (talk) 03:03, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree you could be helpful as a Meta sysop. By the way, Legoktm is one of the most xwiki users (source). The other really xwiki users tend to be (semi-)automatic bots or SWMT members, such as myself. PiRSquared17 (talk) 04:11, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
What sort of cases? TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 07:57, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
Dunno, having rollback would be nice for the occasional spambot I see in #wikimedia. I had to ask admins for help in fixing a MediaWiki message for MassMessage a few times, but I doubt that will happen often. Legoktm (talk) 09:26, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

You created your account in mid-2007? How come I haven't heard about you when I initially joined a few years ago until recently? TeleComNasSprVen (talk) 22:42, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

That is a good question ;) Legoktm (talk) 23:43, 24 January 2014 (UTC)

Can your random-user-contacting bot be used to generate a representative unban discussion[edit]

Hi Legotkm, excuse me for just dropping in but I noticed your Legobot somewhere on English Wikipedia and it seemed to be contacting random users. I wondered if it could be used to invite a set of, say, 30 users to an unban discussion. This would have the advantageous effect of generating a discussion that could be scientifically said to be representative of "the community." My position is that the current place such discussions occur, which is mainly WP:AN/ANI, is heavily populated by blocking enthusiasts, and thus not particularly representative of the community.

If it worked for this purpose, I think there are myriad other Wikipedia processes, say Arbcom elections and so forth, where Legobot could similarly be used to get a more representative result,

I have a selfish purpose for this. I am banned for socking. I never did it, there's never been evidence. I did respond poorly when WP:AN/ANI regulars started pushing me around at my page, and before I knew it I'm kicked out, and talkpage blocked. I try to get unbanned but the problem is a few of the same people hound me and pounce on every word I say, and then WP:AN/ANI groupthink sets in. The WP:UNBAN policy says I can be unbanned as result of a community discussion, but my dilemma is how to have that in another place than WP:AN/ANI. This is where your bot could come in. Set up a location, and randomly invite editors to unban me or not. This could be done as a pilot effort. If it worked out, I think there're a lot more unjustly banned editors that could make use of it. Thanks, and let me know if you'll consider this. Colton Cosmic (talk) 13:44, 11 August 2014 (UTC) PS: I am not going to tie up your talkpage with the details of my case, but there have been a *lot* of unfounded accusations directed at me, so please allow me to defend anything you read elsewhere that turns you against me.

Nope. Legoktm (talk) 22:44, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
Why not? Do you understand what I'm proposing? Are you aware of another bot that could randomly contact a set number editors from the entire editor base, and if so which one? Colton Cosmic (talk) 10:24, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Because it's outside of the scope of my bot's approval. Yes, and no. Legoktm (talk) 18:04, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Letter petitioning WMF to reverse recent decitions[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation recently created a new feature, "superprotect" status. The purpose is to prevent pages from being edited by elected administrators -- but permitting WMF staff to edit them. It has been put to use in only one case: to protect the deployment of the Media Viewer software on German Wikipedia, in defiance of a clear decision of that community to disable the feature by default, unless users decide to enable it.

If you oppose these actions, please add your name to this letter. If you know non-Wikimedians who support our vision for the free sharing of knowledge, and would like to add their names to the list, please ask them to sign an identical version of the letter on change.org.

I'm notifying you because you participated in one of several relevant discussions. -Pete F (talk) 22:12, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Global preferences[edit]

Hi, on a user talk page I stumbled over apromisingn experimental link to globalprefs ending up on a login page. Clicking that I arrived on an error page telling me to inform the project administrator how that happened. That might be you, please consider yourself as informed… –Be..anyone (talk) 16:20, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

Did you try https://tools.wmflabs.org/globalprefs/ ? (Note the trailing / at the end) Legoktm (talk) 19:26, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
Got it, it's a02e59464a7a0970da28f0bbe29fd01f, the OAuthListConsumers search form is apparently case sensitive. "Something" happened today after a click on login, I got an OAuth permission form, and doing that, I could pick en-GB as global language. A quick sanity test on w:zh: did not confirm any immediate effect, but maybe that's as expected without browser restart. One global preference I'd really love in addition to the UI language would be the MediaViewer opt-out.Face-smile.svgBe..anyone (talk) 13:19, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
How long did you wait? IIRC the tool is pretty slow and goes in alphabetical order, so check your language preference on aawiki or something. It was mainly a prototype to prove it was feasible, not really intended for proper usage. Legoktm (talk) 14:36, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Doesn't work for me; I'll disable it, but count me as support to put working "global preferences" at the bottom of the unbreak now annoyances.Face-smile.svgBe..anyone (talk) 00:17, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 31 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that OTRS volunteers sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have been identified as an OTRS volunteer and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy. If you do not sign the new confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015, you will lose your OTRS access. OTRS volunteers have a specific agreement available, if you have recently signed the general confidentiality agreement for another role (such as CheckUser or Oversight), you do not need to sign the general agreement again, but you will still need to sign the OTRS agreement.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me (gvarnum@wikimedia.org). Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 31 December 2015 to retain your OTRS access. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation

Hey, I wanted to let you know that the process for AAR2015 has started (see Admin activity review/2015). Someone is already getting a list of users affected by the process; do you still have ideas on how to easily get the community messages out, and direct messages to those affected?

Running a sql query across all wikis[edit]

Hi. Can you please point me to an easy way to run the query

 SELECT af_id, af_public_comments FROM `abuse_filter` WHERE `af_pattern` LIKE '%ccnorm%';

across all wikis. Running it per wiki is going to be dick useless for my needs, and my patience. Thanks if you can help.  — billinghurst sDrewth

There's no easy way for you to do it, but I'll run it server-side for you since that's much easier. Legoktm (talk) 04:28, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
I have a little C# script for crosswiki queries — just enter your SQL and choose how to output the results, and it'll connect to the Tool Labs databases through an SSH tunnel. I can run crosswiki queries for you, or send you the source code if you're on Windows and comfortable with C#. —Pathoschild 23:59, 20 February 2016 (UTC)
@Pathoschild: Looking to get the data so we can progress Phabricator:T29987. So at this time I am wanting to 1) identify which wikis use "ccnorm" in an abuse filter; then 2) the filters themselves. Then we have the scope of how wide we need to communicate, etc.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:52, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

Cross-wiki notifications[edit]

Hi. I was just reading your blog post. I went to Special:BetaFeatures at en.wikipedia but couldn't see "enhanced notifications." Has it been removed? (Thanks for working on this. I think it will be a great community building feature.) --Anthonyhcole (talk) 02:52, 28 February 2016 (UTC)

So it turns out that it's currently only on a few wikis right now, the list is at mw:Help:Notifications/Cross-wiki#Release_timeline. It should hit all other wikis by the end of March (exact date still unknown), we want to make sure we quash most of the bugs before it goes out everywhere, and that the backend infrastructure scales properly. I'll update my blog post accordingly. Legoktm (talk) 20:16, 28 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback. I look forward to the release on en. --Anthonyhcole (talk) 02:56, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hey Legoktm. Hope you are doing better dude. I saw your recent edit and started wondering if there was more context here - specifically, this page. It is definitely useful, compiled from public information but it is missing a lot. I wanted to ask 2 things - First, was there any discussion anywhere (lists etc.) that I missed? Second, I think this should have a more complete set of numbers, and since this is from public reports? maybe there is somewhere to search and compile this further? Thanks. Also, hi. ;) Theo10011 (talk) 21:27, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Hey Theo! No public discussion as far as I know, there have been multiple discussions about it on the private wmfall mailing list though. The table was originally created on officewiki, and then I moved it to meta ~2 weeks ago since all of the data was public. What data do you think is missing? AFAICT it contains all the data available from the public 990s that the WMF has published. Legoktm (talk) 09:01, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

Affiliate-selected Board seats/2016/Questions[edit]

Hello there! Please, do assume good faith :) You have not posted your answers to the question:

The voting starts today, so it is better to have everything done as soon as possible. I do want to hear your opinion on the question you have missed, and I am going to ask this from every candidate, as it is important to understand how a future Trustee (and technically any of us can be elected) treats this or that issue, to know his or her thoughts about it on a public page. And I think that I am not very unique in my desire to have more text to get to know people better :) Wikipedians tend to read people (literally speaking) --アンタナナ 02:15, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

P.S. I do not have intentions to make you answer the questions you do not want to answer, I just want to know your opinion before you are elected as a Trustee. Even if you think that some questions are out of scope or not relevant. Thank you :) --アンタナナ 02:15, 24 March 2016 (UTC)

Affiliate-selected Board seats[edit]

Dear Legoktm, I am chair of Wikimedia Ukraine Board and writing to you on behalf of Wikimedia Ukraine. Is it possible for you to find an hour to talk via Skype (hangouts) during the next few days? Preferably before May 6, as we have to vote before May 7. I have written a letter to you, please check your email.

I apologize for such a short notice, but I thought I would have an opportunity to meet all candidates during Wikimedia Conference 2016. And we were really busy with Wiki Loves Earth contest last week --Ilya (talk) 22:58, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Sure, I responded with my availability via email. Legoktm (talk) 09:46, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

2FA, how does it work xwiki[edit]

For each wiki where I am an administrator I am seeing different 2 factor secret key, and scratch codes, and all for the one account. That would just seem to be courting disaster or is there some uniformity to a 2FA that is not self-evident? (asking where it is quieter)  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:29, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

If you activate it somewhere, it works just fine on other wikis even if activation credentials are different. (Say, I activate it on commonswiki and when I login to incubatorwiki you're forced to enter commons' 2FA digits.) — regards, Revi 06:02, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

toollabs:checker not correctly checking transclusion[edit]

Hi. For the past little while I have seen that the checker tool fails on some works in that it reports pages as being transcluded, though they are definitely not.

https://tools.wmflabs.org/checker/?db=enwikisource_p&title=Index:Swedenborg,_Harbinger_of_the_New_Age_of_the_Christian_Church.djvu

It shows all pages as being transcluded, yet the /307 to 312 are most definitely not transcluded. This phenomenon only seems to be recent works, another being https://tools.wmflabs.org/checker/?db=enwikisource_p&title=Index:Poems_of_nature,_Thoreau,_1895.djvu

Older works like https://tools.wmflabs.org/checker/?db=enwikisource_p&title=Index:A_London_Life,_The_Patagonia,_The_Liar,_Mrs_Temperly.djvu display correct information.

If you could give it a poke at some time that would be great. It is beyond my mediocre skills. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:35, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

billinghurst, sorry about not responding earlier. I've mostly been swamped with school lately, and am significantly less active than I'd like ot be. Maybe MZMcBride can take a look, otherwise I'll find some time this weekend to investigate. Legoktm (talk) 20:29, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
The best bit of news is that you are alive and well, and still here. Best of luck with the study. There is no issue that you didn't respond or get to it. I had moved the request to MZM's page, which was why I removed it here. Thanks for the response.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:20, 11 February 2017 (UTC)
