It seems a patch of yours went missing from the schedule. :) Given phabricator:T154816#3048705, you can probably restore it. Nemo 13:06, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

@Nemo bis: I tried but they refused to do it. —MarcoAurelio 09:29, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Una pequeña cuestión[edit]

Hola, desafortunadamente mi actividad se ha reducido en febrero debido a problemas personales, pero ya he vuelto a estar un poco más activo. Veo que solicitas añadir 'OTRS-member' a algunos usuarios (obviamente el permiso global es solo para la cola de permisos, no para info). Mi duda es la siguiente: Si tú eres administrador de OTRS (y a la vez un Steward) ¿Por qué no lo haces tú? Eso siempre me ha parecido extraño. Supongo que tal vez tendrá que ver con Stewards policy, donde no se puede actuar en la homewiki. Saludos. --Ks-M9 [disc.] 13:32, 27 February 2017 (UTC).

Sabía que tarde o temprano me harían la pregunta. Simplemente prefiero evitar la remota posibilidad de conflicto de intereses, si bien inexistente en tanto que dicho permiso sólo se añade o revoca a petición de los administradores de OTRS y no está sujeto a ningún tipo de discusión. No obstante, en tanto que la mujer del César no sólo ha de ser honrada sino también parecerlo, prefiero dejarle el trabajo a mis compañeros. —MarcoAurelio 14:53, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Documentation template[edit]

Hi MarcoAurelio! I think you are one of the main adminstrators here, so I ask you in front of. While my maintenance work I hit on {{Documentation}}. To remove errors, I patched this template, but this is not how I am working. Now I want to resolve this problem, but there are a lot of imports to do, additional difficult updates on outdated pages (you know what I mean), before it will work correctly. See my chain of thought; due this I have a few questions:

  1. Why are so less documentations imported? And if they exist, why are they outdated?
  2. Is history of an import not needed? There are many copies of wp content without history or revision info.
  3. Do you think, if I request a temporary adminship for this job, I will receive this? Import rights are not enough, at first some pages are protected and in second I want to protect some of the imported pages.

Thank you for a reply and a hint how to resolve this problem. --Plagiat (talk) 22:30, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Dear Plagiat. Thank you for your kind message. You're raising an interesting question. Indeed many stuff at Meta is outdated, and maybe {{documentation}} is one of them.
Answering your first question, I think we lack wikignomes that cover that important area of this project :o) Any help will certainly be welcome.
With regards to the import, I don't think we need to do a full import of the history. According to our Terms of Use an hyperlink to the permanent link to the source is enough attribution. I personally prefer that as well since imported histories are confusing as it appears that some editor did something here when it's not true, although I can understand people making transwiki imports.
Third, I think that our community would be sympathetic to any request for limited adminship with good reasoning and scope, and maintenance is IMHO a good reason.
Having looked at your subpage, it looks great. However, do we really need to import everything from there? I mean, we know enwiki has a lot of templates and nice things but I'm not sure we need all of those here. There's also a proposal to develop a central repository for Lua modules, templates, gadgets, scripts; that will make having copies of everything outdated. I am not good when it comes to complex syntax or Lua, so while I appreciate you contacting me, I'd also prefer that you consult your roadmap with an experienced editor in advanced wikisyntax et al. so we're sure that everything goes well.
Best regards, —MarcoAurelio 22:51, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for this pleasant response. I will request my limited WikiGnome adminship today. I know it is a long list of imports. When I stumble upon this loose carpet edge {{Documentation}} I wouldn't thought that either.
