Support request with team editing experiment project[edit]

Dear tech ambassadors, instead of spamming the Village Pump of each Wikipedia about my tiny project proposal for researching team editing (see here:, I have decided to leave to your own discretion if the matter is relevant enough to inform a wider audience already. I would appreciate if you could appraise if the Wikipedia community you are more familiar with could have interest in testing group editing "on their own grounds" and with their own guidance. In a nutshell: it consists in editing pages as a group instead of as an individual. This social experiment might involve redefining some aspects of the workflow we are all used to, with the hope of creating a more friendly and collaborative environment since editing under a group umbrella creates less social exposure than traditional "individual editing". I send you this message also as a proof that the Inspire Campaign is already gearing up. As said I would appreciate of *you* just a comment on the talk page/endorsement of my project noting your general perception about the idea. Nothing else. Your contribution helps to shape the future! (which I hope it will be very bright, with colors, and Wikipedia everywhere) Regards from User:Micru on meta.

Change default main page in lt language[edit]

Hi, I saw that you have created this main page for Lithuanian language in Wikidata. Can you change this default page to this one? See the discussion about this here also: [4].--Zygimantus (talk) 19:58, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

@Zygimantus: You need to contact a Wikidata admin and tell them to replace the content of d:MediaWiki:Mainpage/lt with "Wikidata:Main Page". I couldn't do it even if I wanted because I'm not an admin there, and Wikidata isn't a GS-enabled wiki anymore. I believe the page to make admin requests is d:Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard.
Sorry for not responding earlier. I've been inactive/busy lately. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:07, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

Problems with global Twinkle script[edit]

Hi. I've been using your global Twinkle script for a while. And it was great! Unfortunately, for one reason or another, it started to interfere with my local Twinkle on ro.wikipedia. The result was that the local ro.wikipedia Twinkle no longer worked properly :( Is it possible to add (somehow) a script exception for Thing is that the global script is helping me a lot when patrolling on all the other Wikimedia projects where a local TW is unavailable. Not to mention it saves a lot of time. Thanks! Wintereu 20:46, 1 February 2017 (UTC)

@Wintereu: Hi, if you change ( (mw.config.get("wgDBname") !== "wikidatawiki") && (mw.config.get("wgDBname") !== "testwikidatawiki") ) by ($.inArray(mw.config.get('wgDBname'), ['wikidatawiki', 'testwikidatawiki', 'rowiki']) == -1) , it should be okay. Matiia (talk) 21:20, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
@Matiia: Done. It took me a while to realize I also had to switch the order of two lines (getting the "if ($.inArray ..." line above the "mw.loader.load ..." line). It seems to work just fine now. Thank you, muchas gracias, mulțumesc mult :) Wintereu 22:59, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
@Matiia: Thank you for handling that for me. @Wintereu: I've been pretty inactive for a while, but hopefully the problem is resolved now. The "global Twinkle" script could really use some work, and is very out of date, but I don't think I'm personally up to the task of dealing with it (my real life is also pretty busy lately).

Long time no chat! Are you generally on IRC under a different username? See you around. --JustBerry (talk) 23:25, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
