digits grouping


  • Hey, I don't know how to drop you a message, so I will do it here: please add digits grouping to your s23 List_of_Wikipedias script, so as to improve readability. This 's/(?<=\d)(\d{3})(?=(\d{3})*\D)/ \1/sg' regex (using NBSPs for grouping) should do it. If you disagree, please let me know why (maybe on this wiki page). Thank you.

Alternatively, you could wrap the numbers in the formatnum: magic word, so that {{formatnum:123456789}} gives 123,456,789. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 08:28, 1 October 2006 (UTC)Reply
I've just tested the proposed regex with commas and it seems it's quite ugly as compared to nbsps. I think commas are too ugly for a page with so many big numbers. Actually, I suspect this is the very reason why digits grouping has not been introduced yet, so I think nbsps are the best solution. 12:04, 1 October 2006 (UTC)Reply

Better RSS Feed


Hi - I've created an extended version of the rss feed extension you wrote, have a look: User:Duesentrieb/RSS. It would be cool if you could link to this from User:Mutante/RSSFeed if you like it. Ach, ich könnte ja auch deutsch sprechen... naja :) -- Duesentrieb 15:07, 30 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Ich hab' auf deiner Seite einen Link zu meiner Version hinzugefügt - ich hoffe das ist OK :) -- Duesentrieb 01:29, 2 May 2005 (UTC)Reply

Wikistats broken


The link to your Wikistats tool has been commented out at List of Wikipedias, because it currently lists some of the largest Wikipedias (such as the French one) as having zero articles. I have no idea what's going on here, but I just wanted to let you know in case you hadn't noticed. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 07:58, 1 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the notice, i am currently working on it and updating them again. I had tried to use a different method of retrieving the stats pages (with curl, rather than PHP built-ins) hoping to speed up the process, but causing this bug instead for some reason. Also the whole server hosting the update script was not reachable for a while. Mutante 18:40, 1 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Wikistats request


Hello. Thank you for the Wikistats. Could you add a combined total line to the bottom of the statistics, that would show (for example) the total number of articles, edits etc. in all Wikipedias? -- 18:31, 9 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Ok, good idea, look here, i added one to the Wikipedia list. Mutante 06:28, 10 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Ah! Very nice. Thanks! By the way, it shows that Ripuarian Wikipedia has -15 images, but it must be a bug in MediaWiki. -- 11:44, 11 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hi, some anonymous users have eschewed your script for updating List of Wikipedias in favor of templates that must be updated by hand. I suppose if you changed your script to use the templates, it'd make it a lot easier to update, although it'd probably put a bit more load on the server than simply displaying a table. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 23:58, 15 May 2006 (UTC)Reply

Wikistats - EL


Hi. Great work!! Could you add Enciclopedia Libre, spanish wikipedia fork, to the non-wikimedia wikistats list? Thank you. --Zuirdj 22:22, 30 June 2006 (UTC)Reply

I would love to, but they are using Mediawiki 1.4.15, meanwhile that version is really old, and it doesnt provide "raw" statistics like all mediawikis over 1.5 (f.e. compare http://enciclopedia.us.es/index.php/Special:Statistics?action=raw and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Statistics?action=raw) You may tell the ELibre admins that there are several very good reasons (including serious security issues and being in these stats) for upgrading their Mediawiki version asap and then tell me to add them again.

Missing projects


Hello Mutante,

Thanks a lot for Wikistats. I noticed some projects are missing:


Could you add them to the table? Thank you! Korg + + 17:12, 21 July 2006 (UTC)Reply

Added. Mutante 21:29, 25 July 2006 (UTC)Reply

Thanks! Sorry to bother you, but I noticed you added 3 entries in duplicate in the Wikibooks table (ka, ky, ne), 2 in the Wiktionary table (cr, tk) and 1 in the Wikiquote table (gu); tkwikiquote is also missing. Best regards, Korg + + 00:55, 26 July 2006 (UTC)Reply

Better now? The duplicates happened cause i tried to script automatically adding these wikis and needed 2 or 3 tries until it worked. Mutante 05:51, 26 July 2006 (UTC)Reply

Qu'est-il arrivé a list of wikipedias


pourquoi est-ce il n'y a que les 35 premiers wikipédias ou sont passés les autres 10:09, 14 August 2006 (UTC)Reply

I'm not sure if i understand this right. You are missing 35 wikis? which? Mutante 18:33, 17 August 2006 (UTC)Reply



Just as a heads up for the stats, you might want to look at adding the Wikiversity projects to the list of MediaWiki projects you are monitoring. I'm not exactly sure how everything is going to be linking around to them, but the English Wikiversity (http://en.wikiversity.org/) has started and other languages will soon be added. Putting this into the list would be appreciated, especially with the stat bot you have written. --Roberth 21:02, 15 August 2006 (UTC)Reply

How is the largest Wikis list formed?


I thought it would just take all the Wikis and just return the largest ones, but, for example, GamerWiki seems to have enough 'good' articles in your stats to qualify but isn't in that table. 09:55, 8 September 2006 (UTC)Reply

Sortable lists of Wikis


I think it would be nice if your wiki-syntax tables (like [1]) used class="sortable" in the table. Then the tables that are copied here at meta-wiki will be sortable. I am not sure if the sorting will work with the number format in List of Wikipedias, but for the lists of the other projects it should work nicely. / 16:32, 25 November 2006 (UTC)Reply

This has been tried before and people decided to change it back (because it messed up the table layout, i think) Mutante 11:03, 29 November 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hm, to be honest the XML output is not really created by myself,i simply use "mysql -X -u", the option of MySQL client to output XML data directly from tables. Therefore i dont have that much influence on the output, or do i? Is that a bug in mysql then? Mutante 18:18, 31 December 2006 (UTC)Reply

Hi, I wonder how the ratio of "stubs" is calculated in [2]. How does the script even classify an article as a stub? Length? Number of links? Anything else? \Mike(z) 09:45, 26 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

Hi, what my script does is just divide the number of "good" articles by the number of "total" articles (as reported on Special:Statistics), and call that the "stub ratio". But it doesnt do the classification of what is a "good" article, that are mediawiki rules. Afaik it is a combination of article lenght in bytes and at least one internal link, maybe more, not sure, you would have to ask Mediawiki developers in #mediawiki on Freenode IRC or search the source code. Mutante 23:01, 26 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

Ok, then I see. Well, I'm fairly certain that the "total" number given is the number of pages in the wiki without reference to namespace. As it says on en:wp (to be prejudiced: I guess that's where the people are most aware of what's going on :) the total number of pages includes redirects, discussion pages, image description pages, user profile pages, templates, help pages, portals, articles without links to other articles, and pages for Wikipedia administration, next to the "good articles". Based on that, I believe the only pages in the main namespace which does not count towards the "good" article are 1) redirects and 2) pages without links from them. Thus, I think that the number rather reflects something like "how much work is going into the actual project, and how much time is spent talking about it and socializing" :D \Mike(z) 07:23, 27 April 2007 (UTC)Reply

List of Wikipedias


Hi, I saw you helped someone with updating the statistics for the List of Wikipedias. I have the same problem with the Bulgarian list (Списък на уикипедии), I need to update it (semi)automatically. I read your explanation on the Discussion page of List of Wikipedias but I am not sure what exactly I need to do. Can you help me please? Also I wanted to ask you if it is better to keep the list here in Wikimedia or in Wikipedia itself since I see different language versions post them in either one of the two. Danke! --Vanka5 01:56, 4 May 2007 (UTC)Reply

Hi, you can copy / paste wiki code with current numbers from [3], but you would have to make yourself a script that replaces the english with bulgarian language names and table headers. Sorry but i cannot start offering that in every language of Wikipedia automatically, that would go beyond my resources. About the Wikipedia or Wikimedia question, i am not sure either, but probably wikipedia for the wikipedia lists and wikimedia for the "all wikimedia projects" list. You could even start pasting others lists of (all) mediawikis to mediawiki.org argueing that they are stats about mediawiki in general... Mutante 07:37, 5 May 2007 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for your reply, Mutante. I created the different Bulgarian equivalent templates already. The Bulgarian list is also available on the Bulgarian Wikipedia: w:bg:Уикипедия:Списък на уикипедии, I translated the language names and everything. I noticed a lot of the different language lists use bots to update the numbers, I can start updating them manually but that is defeating the whole purpose. If you are aware of the bot script I can use maybe you can provide it for me here and I would refer it to people who are more familiar with bots than I am. Any other suggestions? Thanks for all your help. --Vanka5 04:44, 25 May 2007 (UTC)Reply

redirect to local language pages on wikipedia


pasted from IRC #wikipedia channel

<mutante> if i just have a page title from en.wikipedia, can i still link to the german version of
that article on de.wikipedia,given that they are linked to each other
<mutante> i mean linking to it from an external page, and if the german page title differs from
the english one, when just having the english one as input
<mutante> arg..cant describe

<kmccoy> mutante, I don't think so.
<kmccoy> mutante, I guess you could figure out some way to parse the interwiki links from the
 english one and build a database.  I don't know if anyone has done that sort of thing.

<mutante> kmccoy: i wasnt sure if i saw something similar to  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/de:Pagename
.. but maybe just  wishful thinking

<kmccoy> mutante: That link does redirect me to http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pagename
<kmccoy> mutante, but you still have to know the name of the page on the German Wikipedia.

<mutante> kmccoy: aah, yes, so far i remembered it right, just that i would like de:Egypt to
 redirect to de.wikipedia.org/Ägypten  too, if they are linked in the languages section

<kmccoy> mutante, this sounds like a good job for an external tool somewhere. :)

<mutante> kmccoy: if i wouldnt have to know the page title in all local languages, i could insert
 a template {{wikipedia}} on my personal wiki to link to multiple language versions of the current
 page title on wikipedia, without having to add all the local names..

<kmccoy> mutante, well, the interwiki links aren't created automatically, so I think the way to do
 it would be to build a separate database of them.  Or it could be cool if there were a mediawiki
 extension or something that could  redirect something like [[Egypt/de:]] to the appropriate German
 page.  I know that Commons does some stuff with multiple languages, though I haven't looked at it

<mutante> ok, maybe i should mention it on #mediawiki then ..thanks kmccoy

<kmccoy> Good luck. :)

<Physchim62> mutante, at the moment all interwiki links have to be added by hand or (usually) by
 bot. Commons does try to have machine readable versions availbale for everyone, but…

<mutante> Physchim62: so if somebody manually adds an interwiki link in the page, which shows up
 in the "languages"  box, could that also change the behavior of the redirect mechanism if someone
 opens de:PAGENAME

<Physchim62> mutante, it shouldn't do, as the databases are supposed to be independant

<Physchim62> mutante, it is a common problem for interwiki bots not to know which article to link to,
 because the existing interwikis are inconsistent

<mutante> Physchim62:  goal is to have only the english version and a lang prefix as input , and
 automatically end up on the page that is linked in the languages box

<kmccoy> Physchim62, mutante's idea would be independent of that, though.

<Physchim62> OK, I didn't quite understand

<kmccoy> It could work on any language, too.  If the de article A linked to English article Z, but
 the English article Z linked to German B, then [[en:Z/de:]] could link to [[de:B]], but
 [[de:A/en:]] could link to [[en:Z]].

<mutante> Physchim62: for that it doesnt matter if the actual links are added manually

<kmccoy> mutante, did you ask in #mediawiki?
<kmccoy> mutante, you could also file a request on bugzilla...

<mutante> i copy/pasted the IRC conversation to meta.wikimedia and pasted the link to that in #mediawiki , no double  typing ;)

Two problems on Wikiversity list


Hello, Mutante. Thank you very much for the Wikistats. I found two problems (or questions) in the List of Wikiversities:

  1. I think that the top line of http://s23.org/wikistats/wikiversity_wiki.php should be a level 2 header, but it is a level 4 header right now. The total header is a level 3 header and I think it right.
  2. I think that Wikiversity.at should be removed from this list. I understand that it has the same name and a different concept from s23wiki:Wikiversity.

Thanks for your time to read my message. --Kanjy 15:29, 24 March 2008 (UTC)Reply

Hi, i changed the header as requested and deleted wikiversity.at from that list, moved it to the general Mediawiki list instead. Greets, Mutante 22:51, 28 March 2008 (UTC)Reply

DaSch-Tour → WeCoWi


hey, auf deiner Wikistatistik taucht immer noch mein altes Wiki DaSch-Tour auf das Wiki gibt es in dieser Form nicht mehr, der Link weißt auch schon auf das neue WeCoWi hin, der Name ist aber der alte, vielleicht kannst du das ja mal bei Gelegenheit ändern. --DaSch 12:31, 6 June 2008 (UTC)Reply

DaSch-Tour is still listed in WikiStats although the Wiki does not exsist anymore and the Entry is linked to WeCoWi! --DaSch 21:39, 6 March 2009 (UTC)Reply

Some bugs


I recently added new wiki. Currently it appears like this (http://s23.org/wikistats/largest_html.php):

94 Mediawiki Все о кино 44292 79125 110202 3001028 2 500 2363 0.5598 0000-00-00 00:00:00 3469

  • Number of images are parsed incorrect. It should be 23637 instead of 2363.
  • When you generate link to the page it shouldn't include ":Special" for international wiki's. For example instead of


it should be




Is it possible to get AboutUs.org added once again? http://www.aboutus.org/Special:Statistics .



It is still in. RobiH 17:55, 27 July 2008 (UTC)Reply

Hi, Mutante!

Long time since I last worked on this, but here's a list of updates to the local language links:

In addition, the got language link and the local name seem to have got corrupted. The correct link is got:𐌲𐌿𐍄𐌰𐍂𐌰𐌶𐌳𐌰 and the name is 𐌲𐌿𐍄𐌰𐍂𐌰𐌶𐌳𐌰 Malhonen 12:09, 21 December 2008 (UTC)Reply

I see Minh Nguyễn already commented on this last point. The local name could be 𐌲𐌿𐍄𐌹𐍃𐌺, since that's what it said originally. The Gothic codepoints in Unicode are above the U+0000..U+FFFF range, which is probably the source of the problem. Malhonen 12:21, 21 December 2008 (UTC) Reply
Hi, took me a while to make those changes, and for the "got" links i manually converted them to html entities from [4]. Please recheck my changes now. Mutante 00:38, 29 December 2008 (UTC)Reply

If you want to correct other errors feel free to edit it in this syntax right away, makes it very easy for me then.

Removing Volapuk from wikistats/wikipedias_wiki.php


Hello. you seem to maintain the list at http://s23.org/wikistats/wikipedias_wiki.php that is copied into http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/List_of_Wikipedias. the position of Volapuk at #21 is misleading in the extreme. there was a request from Jimmy Wales a year or two ago to take this one out of the list; a long discussion ensued -- see the discussion, Archive 5, #24, i.e. http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:List_of_Wikipedias/Archive_5#Volap.C3.BCk (sorry not sure how to make the link turn out right in this wiki). general consensus was to take out Volapuk, except that it couldn't be done on that side since the statistics are just copied directly from your site. could you do it on s23.org?

Benwing 04:50, 20 February 2009 (UTC)Reply

RSS Extension Licensing


The licensing is a bit vague on the RSS extension page. You are noted as one of the authors. Extension:RSS. I am trying to package this for the fedoraproject, but our licensing guidelines require that the code be licensed with an open source license (Fedora Licensing Guidelines for reference).

Thank you,

Clint Savage

Fedora Project


Hmm, I say it's GPL 3.0 for my original version, and for the current version, which is so heavily extended over time, i wonder if all listed authors should/can/have to agree on a license, or if a license can be different for each revision of the page, but that would not sound like a very smart idea. So GPL if the other authors don't disagree and dual-licensed Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License because it is on this wiki page. I really like to hear that the RSS extension makes it into Fedora. Mutante 21:45, 8 July 2009 (UTC)Reply


  1. mediawiki
01:11 <mutante> once started the page Extension:RSS with minimal code, in 2005, then several authors extended it heavily over time, it never had a license, besides the "CC-by-sa" because its a mediawiki.org page, now a Fedora maintainer asks me they want to package it with mediawiki and they need it to be a Free License.. can i just say its GPL 3 now?
01:12 <flyingparchment> mutante: only if you have the permission of all the copyright holders
01:12 <mutante> flyingparchment: that is all editors of all revisions?
01:12 <thedj> yes
01:12 <mutante> flyingparchment: but technically each revision could be a seperate work
01:12 <mutante> i could say it alone, but only for my own ancient revision
01:13 <mutante> and what about the following ones ..P
01:13 <thedj> that is, if all people claim their copyright
01:13 <flyingparchment> mutante: no, each revision is a derivate work of the preceeding one
01:13 <thedj> and you can't know if they will claim their copyright, unless you ask.
01:13 <mutante> hmm ok, but it is very likely not all users will answer
01:13 <mutante> if we just write on their talk pages
01:13 <mutante> and how long to wait
01:14 <thedj> that's kinda a problem, but you have to try first.
01:14 <GreenReaper> But isn't CC-BY-SA a free license
01:15 <mutante> GreenReaper: hmm, he links me to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing#Good_Licenses  .. checking again
01:15 <mutante> GreenReaper: not considered a license for code by them? shrug
01:16 <flyingparchment> it would be a stupid choice to license code under, but since it's already done, the code should be free, technically
01:17 <GreenReaper> It is under "Good Licenses" for Content Licenses
01:17 <mutante> can the authors say: "GPL 3 or CC-by-sa dual license - user can choose what he uses" ?
01:17 <GreenReaper> The authors can but they all have to.
01:17 <flyingparchment> yes, but it still only applies if they all do that
01:18 <mutante> thanks, so the easiest way would be i guess:
01:19 <mutante> Fedora just takes it as cc-by-sa, like Content

Update 2:

  1. fedora-devel
01:34 <mutante> Can code be licensed as cc-by-sa and be included in Fedora? on the page about what is a "Good License", it is not listed with the code licenses, but it is for content, but this case would be PHP code being on a cc-by-sa mediawiki page, with no other license and several authors over time
01:35 <tibbs|h> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing
01:35 <mutante> yes, on that page it is listed as Good for content
01:35 <mutante> it is PHP code for a Mediawiki extension
01:36 <f13> cc-by-sa is a little strange for code
01:36 <f13> but I think it's still OK

Hi - i'm happy to release my own minor contribution to the extension under GPL, LGPL, BSD, MIT, Apache or whatever license. Have fun :)

PS: that was my very firts bit of mediawiki hacking... -- Duesentrieb 18:45, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply

Hi Mutante, I answered you already on my user page (Free license for my contributions, i.e. I do not claim any rights for that). GFDL or CC-BY-SA would be also okay if required. --Wikinaut 19:09, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply
Nice news! GPL v2 or later are good for my little contribution. If no consensus are reached on GPL, any GPL compatible license from Fedora Good Software licenses is fine for me. --Dzag 21:12, 12 July 2009 (UTC)Reply
I only just now saw the note you left on my talk page six months ago. Any license which makes possible the re-use of the code without requiring payment to anyone is fine with me. Please email me at the address on my user page if you've got any news. —Alxndr (t) 06:56, 14 January 2010 (UTC)Reply

To follow up in a more specific way on the previous comment: The scripts that generate the "mwiki" versions of the wikistats tables for Wikipedias, Wiktionaries, Wikisources, and Wikiverisites need to be changed so that the "Active Users" stats are linked to "Special:ActiveUsers", not "Special:ListUsers". - dcljr 20:33, 22 August 2011 (UTC)Reply

Protocol relative urls


May I ask you to update your script to support protocol relative urls? See also this. Thanks you. Ruslik 12:15, 11 February 2012 (UTC)Reply

Mutante, did you accidentally reply to this request in the next section?? Anyway, yes, the way you "support protocol relative urls" is to simply drop the "http:" part of the URL in external links. But I'm wondering why you're using external links in the first place. For example, the "mwiki" output for Wikipedias uses {{fullurl:}} for links to the "native" language names and "raw" statistics (and so already generates protocol-relative URLs):
| 2
| [[w:German language|German]] 
| class="plainlinksneverexpand" | [{{fullurl:de:Deutsch}} Deutsch]
| [[:de:|de]]
| class="plainlinksneverexpand" | [{{fullurl:de:Special:Statistics|action=raw}} '''1,375,899''']
| 3,845,301
| [[:de:Special:Statistics|105,495,484]]
| [[:de:Special:Listadmins|288]]
| [[:de:Special:Listusers|1,391,143]]
| [[:de:Special:ActiveUsers|23,733]]
| [[:de:Special:Imagelist|173,916]]
| 88
But note that "action=raw" has been deprecated since MW1.17, so you should probably just use the same [[:xx:Special:Statistics|...]] links in the Articles column as you do for Edits (note also the changes to the two language-name links):
| [[:en:German language|German]] 
| [[:de:Deutsch|Deutsch]]
| [[:de:|de]]
| [[:de:Special:Statistics|'''1,375,899''']]
| 3,845,301
| [[:de:Special:Statistics|105,495,484]]
Unless you want to replace the "raw" stats links with API queries, in which case you'd keep them external links:
| [//de.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&meta=siteinfo&siprop=statistics&format=xml '''1,375,899''']
Now, as for the mwiki output for the other projects, these use external links for everything except the language names (English and native):
|- style="text-align: right;"
| 2
| [[w:French language|French]]
| [[w:French language|Français]]
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/ fr]
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Statistics?action=raw '''2172867''']
| 2325268
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Recentchanges 10384202]
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Listadmins 24]
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Listusers 63345]
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:ActiveUsers 367]
| [http://fr.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Imagelist 29]
| style="font-size: 70%;" | 2012-03-12 00:30:02
Here, too, you can just use "interwiki" style links for everything:
|- style="text-align: right;"
| 2
| [[:en:French language|French]]
| [[:fr:Français|Français]]
| [[wikt:fr:|fr]]
| [[wikt:fr:Special:Statistics|'''2172867''']]
| 2325268
| [[wikt:fr:Special:Recentchanges|10384202]]
| [[wikt:fr:Special:Listadmins|24]]
| [[wikt:fr:Special:Listusers|63345]]
| [[wikt:fr:Special:ActiveUsers|367]]
| [[wikt:fr:Special:Imagelist|29]]
| style="font-size: 70%;" | 2012-03-12 00:30:02
Again, note the changes to the language-name links — in particular, the "native" names should be linked to Wikipedias in the appropriate languages. OK, I'm done. [g] - dcljr (talk) 05:59, 12 March 2012 (UTC)Reply

Hello Mxn, note that mutante is very busy and vital parts of wikistats still have to be ported to Labs: I suggest you to file new bug reports and feature requests in its bugzilla component to ensure that they're not forgotten. --Nemo 07:12, 7 February 2013 (UTC)Reply
Hello Mxn, added: min.wikipedia. | added: sa.wikiquote | already existed meanwhile: ro.wikivoyage, pl.wikivoyage. | added: ko.wikiversity. | separate table for wikivoyage is here. Mutante (talk) 11:13, 10 October 2013 (UTC)Reply
Hello again, i also fixed the broken links in the tables you mentioned here. The best would be for now if you create bugs and assign them to me to make this faster. Sorry for the delay but i didn't regularly check my talk page anymore for a while, trying to get better at that again. Mutante (talk) 13:44, 10 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Please, delete latin form in the name of Lezgi language/Wikipedia.--Soul Train (talk) 19:25, 19 February 2013 (UTC)Reply

Done. Mutante (talk) 14:58, 10 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Min.wp on List of Wikipedias


According to the bot operator's talkpage, I should contact you. Talk:List of Wikipedias#Minangkabau Wikipedia. Thanks. Bennylin 14:47, 1 March 2013 (UTC)Reply

Hi Mutante. Why there is still no Minangkabau Wikipedia at the List of Wikipedias? The wiki is now over 700 article. Please add it. SpartacksCompatriot (talk) 12:37, 17 March 2013 (UTC)Reply
Hi? PiRSquared17 (talk) 00:36, 24 May 2013 (UTC)Reply
I still don’t find it in the list, so I see, why on Wikidata, there are 286 WPs and here in the list only 285. That’s not good, cause the min-WP has already 5,384 articles by now according to min:Istimewa:Statistik. It has been 4 months now and it now is behind bcl: on position 142 already which is in the first half of all languages. Can anyone please add it? That would be great. --Geitost diskusjon 11:04, 1 July 2013 (UTC)Reply
Added. I promise it won't take as long next time. This just fell through the cracks. If i seem to ignore you here please use Bugzilla and/or bug me on IRC (mutante). Mutante (talk) 15:00, 10 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Please don't use the s23.org links anymore, use wikistats.wmflabs.org instead. Code got moved there and changed a lot. Mutante (talk) 10:36, 10 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Frrwiki FRR


Hi Mutante, the general name for the language is Nordfriisk. At the moment the statistics show Nuurdfresk, which is the name in one dialect, but not the more general name. Please correct it in the bot's database:
From: | class="plainlinksneverexpand" | [{{fullurl:frr:Nuurdfresk}} Nuurdfresk]
To: | class="plainlinksneverexpand" | [{{fullurl:frr:Nordfriisk}} Nordfriisk]
Thank you! --Murma174 (talk) 14:05, 11 July 2013 (UTC) (sysop and crat on frrwiki)Reply

[EDIT] Wikistats shows the name as it should be. --Murma174 (talk) 16:39, 12 July 2013 (UTC)Reply
Done Danke :-) --Murma174 (talk) 16:38, 15 August 2013 (UTC)Reply
Aber hier steht immer noch 'Nuurdfresk' (?) --Murma174 (talk) 16:45, 15 August 2013 (UTC)Reply

Re: New planet languages


Hi, I've try to create the account on wikitech: for the developer access, however it is currently unable to do so and the error message shown as "There was either an authentication database error or you are not allowed to update your external account.". Is the account needs to created by the someone have the rights to create the account there? Seems this was exist over a week already. Thanks. :) Shinjiman (talk) 13:24, 2 November 2013 (UTC)Reply

Hi, which user name are you trying to use? I just asked on #wikimedia-labs and i've been told the most common reason for this error is when there are invalid characters in the user name. Also, if you are a IRC user, please feel free to join the labs channel on Freenode, i'm sure we can walk you through it there. Mutante (talk) 20:15, 6 November 2013 (UTC)Reply
I've just resolved the issue with wikilabs and it was the conflict with the svn username with the one which was intended to use. It just fixed on a day before, and I will try to have a look how the Git work in these few days. :) Shinjiman (talk) 08:11, 26 November 2013 (UTC)Reply

Superprotect status


Dear Mutante, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

Le projet wikipédia Guyanais !


Bonjour, Oui enfaite il a de cela quelques mois que j'ai rajouter le créole guyanais comme candidat pour le projet de nouvelle langue sur Wikimedia et je n'ai toujours pas reçu de réponse, S'il vous plaît, j'ai vue sur votre page d'utilisateur que vous travaillez pour la Wikimedia fondation, faite que quelqu'un jette au moins un petit coup d'œil sur mon projet, même ne serai-ce que vous, car je parle Français (je suis français), Anglais (J'ai appris tout seul) et Créole Guyanais (Je suis plus précisément guyanais) et ça fait déjà 2 ans que je suis sur Wikipédia, surtout que ce projet me tient vraiment à cœur, SVP faite quelque chose pour Moi LeGuyanaisPure (talk) 22:31, 19 April 2017 (UTC)Reply

Bonjour LeGuyanaisPure,

Vous avez probablement vu mon nom sur un changement d'évaluation de code lors de l'ajout d'un nouveau wiki. Néanmoins, je ne suis personne qui prend des décisions concernant de nouvelles langues. C'est le travail du "langcom" (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Language_committee). Une fois que langcom approuve une nouvelle langue, je serai heureux de l'ajouter à DNS pour vous. Où avez-vous fait la demande? Est-ce déjà une demande officielle sur wiki que vous pourriez lier? Oui, je travaille pour WMF, mais je ne suis qu'un administrateur de serveur technique, alors je fais des modifications techniques qui impliquent des décisions politiques, mais je ne peux pas prendre de décisions politiques. Je devrais donc vous demander de contacter le comité officiel pour cela. J'espère que vous comprenez et bonne chance avec votre projet,

Désolé si quelque chose n'est pas clair, j'ai utilisé Google translate, mon français est très mauvais.

Respond on your e-mail that sent to my address regarding MNguyen


Since I can't directly reply you via e-mail interface because of "host mx00.udag.de[] said: 550 5.7.1 <541329866@qq.com>: Sender address rejected: Spam (in reply to RCPT TO command)"

OK I've just removed MNguyen from Trusted contributors, in that day I just tried to add some Vietnamese users by searching "Nguyen", I didn't heard that the MNguyen has leaved from WMF years ago, I'm apologizing for my confused actions. But is there having other problems on adding other Vietnamese users than this? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 10:14, 19 March 2019 (UTC)Reply
