Talk to me — if you have questions or comments, feel free to post them below or send me an email. If you saw me edit on your wiki, it was probably related to the synchbot service (which maintains global user pages for others) or interface editor (which lets me maintain my user scripts).

About me — my name is Jesse. Nowadays I quietly write scripts, make the occasional edit, and love Shanel. Many moons ago I was an active editor and administrator on several wikis, a Wikimedia steward (2006–2014), a language committee member (2006–2011), an email response volunteer (2006–2011), and a Board elections committee member (2008 and 2009).

Need tools for 2015 Steward elections[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered (done). If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.

Hi P/child. Stewards' elections are imminent, and previously you have had tools available to assist in the process. So some advance notice that stewards would again appreciate your tools again, and if there are any modifications that need to be made for February could they be made and notified to stewards, if you are willing to assist. If there is anything that we need to know or do, then please let us know. Again thanks for your invaluable assistance in this governance process, it is appreciated by us all.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:46, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Billinghurst. The 2015 election tool is now live. :) —Pathoschild 04:17, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Page count not updated on Kyrgyz Wikipedia[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered. If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.

Hi Jesse!

I know two bots (isabaeva and rahat) uploaded some 1300 new words in the Kyrgyz Wiktionary, but the counter on the main page remains at 3490. Please advise what is the reason. Shall there be some more action to be done to get the new words finalised, or some other reason behind?

Thanks! Bakai unsigned by Bakaizh 16:40, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

Hello Bakai. See mw:Manual:Article count for information on how the article count is calculated. It seems you need at least one wikilink in the page text for it to count. —Pathoschild 19:36, 11 January 2015 (UTC)

OK, I've finished. Excuse me for the bother. Bye, --Epìdosis (talk) 11:09, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Epìdosis. I can only delete pages as part of the synchbot service, so I marked those pages with {{delete}} instead. Please add a deletion request to Steward requests/Miscellaneous with a link to q:af:Category:Candidates for speedy deletion.

Involve Synchbot with global user page migration[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered (Synchbot available for migration requests). If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.

Gday P/child. With this new concept of a central wiki page going through test, is it possible for you to consider extending the scope of synchbot to have an involvement? Thinking that those who have userpages could get those that are going to be in excess, especially where soft redirects.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:37, 6 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Billinghurst. It's great to see global user pages finally moving forward. Synchbot already supports deleting pages, so we just need to figure out when it's appropriate or inappropriate to delete a user's main page. (For example, is it appropriate to delete a user's main page on a wiki where they're currently blocked? Is it appropriate to delete their page on their home wiki?) —Pathoschild 15:08, 07 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Pathoschild. I saw your email to -ambassadors, though I was thinking even smaller approach. Could the bot selectively remove pages where a template like {{softredirect}} is in use? I know that on numbers of wikis that I went to the effort of putting on pages to point to my meta pages, or my commons page, or my WS page on the interlanguage WS. Whereas I wouldn't want to remove user pages where I have compiled local information.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:19, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Yep. The bot is very flexible, so it can easily accomodate most custom requests. —Pathoschild 14:08, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

Synchbot request for my user pages[edit]

Hi there, Pathos! How is it going? Hope you're doing well. It's been some years since we last talked. I just wanted to ask you —if your synchbot is still functioning— if you could add a tag to all of my userpages and talk pages (including those of my alt accounts Lester Foster and Küñall). Would it be possible? Regards, --Diego Grez return fire 00:16, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Hi Diego Grez. I'm doing well; how about you? :) The bot is still active; you can place requests on Synchbot. What kind of tag do you want to add? —Pathoschild 01:38, 09 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm doing well too. I'm also glad you're fine. I want search engines to avoid indexing my user and talk pages, by adding at the top of the pages, a "__NOINDEX__" thingy. I'll make a formal request, Mr. Jesse :P Cheers, Diego Grez return fire 02:43, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Re: Global CSS/JS migration[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered (done). If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.
Hello Frigotoni. You have a global.js page which contains your global scripts for all wikis. Since August 19th 2014, your global.js and global.css pages are loaded automatically on all wikis (see announcement). Since you already load them yourself on some wikis, you may experience script errors or issues like tools being added twice. I can fix that for you by merging your local scripts and styles into your global pages, and deleting the local pages with synchbot. Do you want me to do that? —Pathoschild 02:52, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
Hi Pathoschild. I must say I miss it: now I figure out why the tools appear twice. If you can do that for me, I'd really say thank you. Btw, is still possible changing the signature globally?--– Frigotoni..talk 08:44, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, the separate bot which sync'd preferences is no longer active.

Done! You can see the full log on your archive page. —Pathoschild 16:53, 16 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello Bigwill91. Most contributors are volunteers with competing priorities — you can't expect an immediate response at all times, nor is anyone even obliged to help you.

Hi DivineAlpha. Each wiki has its own set of templates, and it's not possible to use one wiki's templates on another wiki. You can only use templates that exist on Meta in your global user page. —Pathoschild 03:01, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Thank you so much for your help deleting my user pages on so many wikis. You know the pain it would have been to request their deletions myself on every wiki, given that I don't even speak the language used by most of them. You've saved me so, so much time.

Global preferences?[edit]

Is there a way to have my preferences apply to all Wikimedia Foundation wikis without going into each separate one (applying settings from the English Wikipedia)? DivineAlpha (talk) 22:46, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Not currently. I think there are plans to deploy the GlobalPreferences extension someday, but I'm not sure what the timeline is. There's an early experiment on Tool Labs to synchronise your settings, but it only handles setting the language so far. —Pathoschild 22:52, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Thank you. Also regarding the global.js/css pages: Does that combine all the js. and css. pages that I have on a local wiki into one global.js and one global.css? DivineAlpha (talk) 23:14, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Yep. Your global.css and global.js on Meta apply on all wikis. You don't need the local CSS/JS pages anymore, but you'll need to move any local CSS/JS into your global pages manually. You can request the deletion of the local pages via Synchbot. —Pathoschild 23:18, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Mirroring of JS[edit]

Most wikis seem to have duplicated javascript... which is an issue, I think, you're aware of happening due to SUL changes... anything about it can be done? (Could this also be related to errors I've been getting specifically on Commons, I wonder?) -- Mentifisto 01:06, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi Mentifisto. Your global.css and global.js pages are now loaded automatically on all wikis as part of global user pages. Since you already load them manually using mw.loader.load, they're loaded twice to adverse effect. I can remove the now-unnecessary local imports for you; just add a Synchbot request if you're interested. —Pathoschild 01:18, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Um, I'm not sure what parameters to use for the request... does every js/css page need to be deleted except some? -- Mentifisto 19:27, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
You can delete them all, unless you have custom scripts on specific wikis you want to keep. If you want to be safe, I can remove global.css and global.js imports, and only delete pages that are otherwise empty. —Pathoschild 19:30, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, do that please. :-) -- Mentifisto 19:33, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Migrating scripts to TemplateScript[edit]

Examples not working[edit]

The following discussion is marked as answered. If you have a new comment, add it just below the box.

Probably my clumsiness, however, when trying to use the Addwith component of TemplateScript I was unable to get it to show in the list of regex editor. Even failed for me when I copied your example text into my global.js file. Slowly beating my head as I try to update my enWS file as it finally fails and fails since last week's update. <shrug> The tardy!  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:40, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

I think I have identified the issue, though not exactly certain. When I change the position: parameter from after to bottom it goes missing from the list in templatescript.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:19, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
Now that I look at your table the parameter bottom is not shown, though it is in your examples. Is that a case of a change made to the coding that the examples did not catch up with?  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:30, 9 May 2015 (UTC)
I corrected the documentation and updated your script. Thanks for pointing that out. —Pathoschild 13:09, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Placing an 'if' statement[edit]

Okay, I seem to be getting the hang of it. Need help on how I would put an 'if' statement in place to only call certain scripts based on the url, ie. work specific cases. An example of what I am trying to do is have something that works for DNB specific works and in s:en:User:Billinghurst/common.js you will see how I tried to put 'if (isDNB00)' statement around a small templatescript within an TemplateScript.AddWith and it breaks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:02, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Billinghurst. I updated the documentation, and fixed your code so the DNB00 templates will only appear on the relevant pages (using the enabled: isDNB00 option). Let me know if anything breaks. :) —Pathoschild 16:45, 09 May 2015 (UTC)
Ah okay, many thanks. The enabled: field didn't read to me as having that effect. Can multiple components be added to 'enabled', if so, how would that be coded. I obviously haven't got it figured out for the headers and footers, but I will keep flogging away. [The clueless will not be prevented from displaying their coding incoherence. <g>]  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:19, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
It's a boolean value, so you can put anything that would fit into an if(...). For example, you could do enabled: isDNB00 && mw.config.get('wgTitle').match(/Chapter \d+/). —Pathoschild 13:13, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Wrapping around cursored text[edit]

You possibly saw the convoluted script that I got from Hesperian for ye olde regex tool for adding text around highlighted cursor text. I have no idea how to do that with this tool. I see replacement, but nothing for dynamically selected.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:52, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

TemplateScript lets you replace the selected text outright (using the position: 'cursor' option), but you couldn't change the existing text instead. I refactored TemplateScript to support that with a replaceSelection($target, function) method you can call. For example, this template wraps the selected text with <poem> tags:
   {
      name: 'wrap with <poem>',
      script: function(context) {
         pathoschild.TemplateScript.replaceSelection(context.$target, function(selected) {
            return '<poem>' + selected + '</poem>';
         });
      }
   }
Pathoschild 14:39, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Pathoschild, thank you for your kindness when informing me. My main purpose with that request is switched to global user page, though. Anyway, thank you very much because you have handled my request. ;) --minhhuy (talk) 17:37, 9 May 2015 (UTC)

Yep, you have successfully switched to using your global user page. Any changes to your page on Meta will apply to the other wikis. —Pathoschild 17:45, 09 May 2015 (UTC)

In reference to Gadget-RegexMenuFramework.js[edit]

Hi. I suggested some possible changes about your Search and Replace gadget on wikisource and was told to contact you. Would my request be possible? Ineuw (talk) 01:21, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Ineuw. The version you're using is very old and no longer maintained (see MediaWiki talk:Gadget-RegexMenuFramework.js). Fortunately the regex search & replace feature is part of the much newer TemplateScript, which already lets you save your search & replace patterns. You can use the newer version immediately by disabling the gadget, and following the instructions at TemplateScript#Installation. —Pathoschild 03:48, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks for your quick quick reply. Will do as instructed. Ineuw (talk) 20:15, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

global .js migration[edit]

Hello Addihockey10. You have a global.js page which contains your global scripts for all wikis. Since August 19th, your global.js and global.css pages are now automatically loaded on all wikis (see announcement). Since you were already loading them before this feature, you may experience script errors or issues like tools being added twice. I can fix that for you by merging your local scripts and styles into your global pages, and deleting the local pages with synchbot. Do you want me to do that? —Pathoschild 19:39, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Hi again! Feel free to add a Synchbot request or leave a message if you want me to do this; for now I'll strike you off the list. :) —Pathoschild 21:05, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

Go ahead! --Addihockey10 (talk) 13:00, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Done! You can see the change log on your archive page. —Pathoschild 02:43, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

global.js Part 2 migration[edit]

Pathoschild... now that's a name I haven't seen in a long time :P. Yeah I'd appreciate the removal of the imports to my global.js file. Thanks! ---Kangaroopowah 19:48, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
