Hi Quentin,
Your tool sulinfo.php has some bug. It can't read and display if user has been blocked on enwiki. Look 2 examples:

Use toollabs:quentinv57-tools/tools/sulinfo.php instead. Toolserver is deprecated and broken. PiRSquared17 (talk) 14:37, 18 January 2014 (UTC)Reply
Ok. Thank you. --XXN (talk) 17:27, 19 January 2014 (UTC)Reply

Miami Bleach[edit]

I saw this comment you left at en.wiki. The operator of that account has been disrupting en.wiki for some time, with w:Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Dragonron being the latest such investigation into things. I think it would be beneficial to take a look at all of the accounts discovered there so this disruption can be stemmed across the project.—Ryūlóng (竜龍) 17:05, 28 January 2014 (UTC)Reply

Hi. It seems that Barras handled this case. He locked all the accounts for cross-wiki abuse. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 13:31, 8 March 2014 (UTC)Reply

Admin on lb:[edit]

May you renew my adminship en Wiktionary:lb. As you know no other luxemburgish speaker is working on this project. Best regards --Les Meloures (talk) 13:20, 29 January 2014 (UTC)Reply

Hi. I'm returning from a period of inactivity and have just seen your message yet. Apparently your adminship has been renewed for one more year. Feel free to ask if you need my help on the Luxemburgish Wiktionary again. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 13:26, 8 March 2014 (UTC)Reply

SUL Info (links)[edit]

Followed the link from the tool to submit a bug report. The individual links to user, talk, and edits point to "https://http//..." May want to update your file a bug instructions as well to create a new ticket on Bugzilla (which I vaguely remember). Technical 13 (talk) 14:25, 12 February 2014 (UTC)Reply

On toolserver and tool labs, the links work for me (on HTTPS). PiRSquared17 (talk) 14:30, 12 February 2014 (UTC)Reply

Notice of review of adminship[edit]

Hello Quentinv57. In accordance with Meta:Administrators/Removal and because you have made fewer than ten logged administrator actions over the past six months, your adminship is under review at Meta:Administrators/Removal/April 2014. If you would like to retain your adminship, please sign there before April 08, 2014. Kind regards, Barras talk 10:00, 1 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

Thank you for the notification. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 10:40, 1 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

Seems like a bug in QuentinvBot[edit]

Hello there! Just saw what seems like a bug in QuentinvBot, and thought it might be usable to let you know.

Please, have a look at this edit which performed archiving – its edit summary states that three requests were archived, while obviously only two sections/requests were deleted from the Steward requests/SUL requests page. At the same time, 2014-04 archive actually contains three requests (out of which one wasn't deleted from the SUL requests page), and, just to make things a bit more weird, edit which created the 2014-04 archive states that two requests were archived.

It's probably something up to two sections having the same title, "Anup". Hope it helps. — Dsimic (talk) 18:54, 10 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

Dear Dsimic, thank you for the comment, I will do this as soon as I have the time to. Best regards, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 18:21, 12 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
You're welcome. — Dsimic (talk) 23:04, 12 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
By the way, why one of the revisions for this thread (12 April 2014, adding 187 bytes on 20:14) has been deleted? — Dsimic (talk) 23:14, 12 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
It was me, I wasn't logged in while editing. -- Quentinv57 (talk) 07:53, 13 April 2014 (UTC)Reply
Ok, thanks. — Dsimic (talk) 16:27, 13 April 2014 (UTC)Reply

Seasons greeting. Kindly, have a look at following support request from mr wiki projects :Steward requests/Miscellaneous#request for "Bulk importing article pages, from mr-wikibooks to mr-wikisource"

NOTE: Expired Account?[edit]

Hello Quentinv57,

Received the message below at about 04:35pm/et/usa, May 6, 2014.

403: User account expired

The page you requested is hosted by the Toolserver user quentinv57, whose account has expired. Toolserver user accounts are automatically expired if the user is inactive for over six months. To prevent stale pages remaining accessible, we automatically block requests to expired content. If you think you are receiving this page in error, or you have a question, please contact the owner of this document: quentinv57 [at] toolserver [dot] org. (Please do not contact Toolserver administrators about this problem, as we cannot fix it—only the Toolserver account owner may renew their account.)

Hope posting this here is *entirely* ok of course - in any case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 20:33, 6 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

@Drbogdan: The Toolserver is being replaced by Wikimedia Labs (specifically Tool Labs). The Tool Labs version works fine. You can change any links to the TS version to point to the Labs version, or maybe Quentin could set up a redirect. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:39, 6 May 2014 (UTC)Reply
@PiRSquared17: Thank You *very much* for your comments - they're greatly appreciated - no problem whatsoever - all seems ok - Thanks again - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 23:58, 6 May 2014 (UTC)Reply


Hi Quentin. You're bot has been inactive since 5 May, which is for over a week now. Can you please restart them or so? Trijnsteltalk 14:56, 12 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

Ping ping ping. It's pretty annoying to do this manually now. Can you please look at this ASAP? Trijnsteltalk 10:39, 19 May 2014 (UTC)Reply
(Talk page stalker) ... and looking into another section above would be a good thing, too. :) — Dsimic (talk) 20:36, 19 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

And again... since 24 June this time. Please restart them. (I've now archived everything manually) Trijnsteltalk 11:35, 3 July 2014 (UTC)Reply

archiving of Steward_requests/Username_changes[edit]

Hello! This is to inform you that since your bot is now inactive, SteinsplitterBot is going to be used for its purpose: Meta:Requests for bot status/SteinsplitterBot 2. I've suggested to remove the sysop bit from your bot there. Sincerely, --Glaisher (talk) 12:02, 31 August 2014 (UTC)Reply

Dear Quentinv57, 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.

Discrepancy in SUL Info[edit]

Different edit counters always give slightly different numbers.
That's normal; I would call that "noise".

But there is a 20% variation between my numbers for dewiki:

dewiki user, talk, edits 26 May 2009 1006 autoreview, editor
Live edits: 1,239
Deleted edits: 64
Total edits (including deleted): 1,303

Any guesses as to why?
Thanks a lot, Varlaam (talk) 02:11, 20 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

Sulinfo is currently unsupported. Please look to utilise Special:CentralAuth, the interwiki link has been updated to point there.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:23, 20 October 2014 (UTC)Reply
Interesting, but same issue:
de.wikipedia.org 03:22, 11 September 2009 confirmed by password(?) — 1,013 autoreview, editor
Live edits: 1,246
Deleted edits: 64
Total edits (including deleted): 1,310
20% variation.
I haven't noticed this issue with any language except German, but I have not looked exhaustively.
Cheers, Varlaam (talk) 05:17, 23 October 2014 (UTC)Reply
The discrepancy persists.
With my missing German edits, I would crack the 100,000 edit ceiling and I can retire from WP.
Please find those missing edits.

Updated scripts[edit]

Hi Quentinv57. I edited your global.js to update you to the latest version of force ltr and ajax sysop, which are compatible with the latest MediaWiki changes and reside on the Wikimedia Tool Labs for easier updates. I also updated various deprecated functions and made your scripts HTTPS-compatible. Let me know if anything breaks. :) —Pathoschild 04:55, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Global CSS/JS migration[edit]

Hello Quentinv57. You have global scripts in User:Quentinv57/global.js, which you import using your local JS pages. Since August 2014, your global.js and global.css pages are loaded automatically on all wikis. Since you already import them yourself, you may experience script errors or tools being added twice. Do you want me to fix this by removing the imports from your local pages using Synchbot (without changing any other content)? —Pathoschild 21:39, 05 July 2015 (UTC)

Hi again! I haven't heard back from you, so I'll assume you don't want to do this. Feel free to leave me a message or add a Synchbot request if you change your mind. :) —Pathoschild 17:52, 09 January 2016 (UTC)Reply


Are You the person behind this? If so, since when is all of Wikipedia a "(closed wiki)"? -- Innocent bystander (talk) 12:23, 26 July 2015 (UTC)Reply

Hello Innocent bystander. The database it uses has invalid data; see Tool Labs issue #T106897. This affects all tools, not only sulutil. —Pathoschild 14:22, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
