WMF Advanced Permissions[edit]

Hey Mike - thanks again for taking the time to maintain Pi bot to update the above. I think, however, that it might be broken; the spreadsheet was added to a few days ago and it has yet to synchronise.

That having been said, I'm very close to finalising the audit, and will be updating the python script to handle the new sheet; I'll make the change direct to your userspace page and flag it in the Phabricator ticket. This will probably be done today, so might be worth waiting and just synching that code on the Pi. Up to you if the fix is worth it!

@JSutherland (WMF): Thanks for the heads-up. There was a character encoding issue, which was a quick fix. I look forward to seeing the new code - do you want me to keep running it after that, or will you run it elsewhere? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:45, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Code's updated, now. :) I think for now it'd be ideal if the situation remained the same, but I am happy to look into alternatives if you'd like it taken off your hands. Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 20:56, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
OK, I've updated the version of the code that the bot's running, and ran an update, please check the page to make sure everything looks as intended. I'm happy to keep on running it. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 21:01, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks Mike - looks like it's skipping the first row (currently Szymon). Figured changing i > 2 to i > 1 would sort that, but I guess not? Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 21:13, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Aah, the example line is no longer there. i > 0 (i.e. only skip the 0th line) does the job, it should now be fixed. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 21:17, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Perfect. Thanks so much. Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 21:18, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Adjusted text[edit]

There has been a request to inform all who voted in the RfC about interlinking accounts involved with paid editing about the following adjustment in the "statement of issue" on Sept 18th, 2017.

It was clarified that this effort will help deal not only with impersonation of specific Wikipedians but also claims of being in good standing made by those who are not.[1] Thanks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 19:59, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
