Would you consider running for steward? MechQuester (talk) 19:50, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

Your bot's edit on SRGP[edit]

Hello. I've looked your bot's edit on SRGP and didn't archive the full discussion of the -jkb-'s request. Is a bug? or can you fix it? --Ks-M9 [disc.] 02:56, 30 January 2017 (UTC).

Mismatch, in general the bot isn't archiving the section. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:31, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Global rename?[edit]

lb Steinsplitter, ich habe für ein Projekt eine Gemeinschaftsaccount, den ich umbenennen möchte. Ich logge mich jetzt mit diesem Account ein, damit du nicht meinst, ich mache Unfug --Hubertl (talk) 09:18, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

So, neu eingeloggt: Ich möchte gerne, dass dieser Account auf "Kellergassen" global umbenannt wird. Wir dachten nämlich, dass das Projekt mit 2016 hätte beendet werden können. Gruß aus Wien. --Kellergassen Niederösterreich 2016 (talk) 09:17, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
@Hubertl: Erledigt :-). --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:41, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
Danke! --Kellergassen (talk) 11:43, 13 February 2017 (UTC)


Dear Steinsplitter, ich habe ein frage, its written on some places, that your bot SteinsplitterBot which measures patrol backlog at Wikispecies and Swedish Wikivoyage, is not working anymore? Is this true, and should I remove it, or is there plan to reactivate? Best regards, Dan Koehl (talk) 15:19, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

@Dan Koehl: Fixed, should work again. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:42, 13 February 2017 (UTC)
Thanks a lot :) Dan Koehl (talk) 15:51, 13 February 2017 (UTC)

Translation of the week[edit]

Hello, may u help me with Translation of the week page. And mark it 'ready for translate'? It will be really helpful. Iniquity (talk) 14:28, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Done. Start to work with it with one of translation administrator. Thanks. Iniquity (talk) 17:04, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
<!--T:--> shouldn't be added by hand (additionally tvar's etc. must be added) and once the page is marked all existing translations must be moved by hand into the new system. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:18, 20 February 2017 (UTC)
Yep, I have already recieved this information, thanks! Iniquity (talk) 17:26, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

View raw source[edit]

Hi. Could you please create a "view raw source" for translations for Admin activity review/Notice to communities and Admin activity review/Notice to inactive right holders as you did for {{usurpation requested}}? Thanks! —MarcoAurelio 11:45, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Done. --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:56, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Environmental impact[edit]

Hallo Steinsplitter! Sag mal, wie bearbeitet man eine solche Seite eigentlich, ohne sich völlig in diesen ganzen Übersetzungs-Tags zu verheddern? Wenn ich zum Beispiel einen Abschnitt verschieben will, ist das ja im Quelltext ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit und im VisualEditor geht das überhaupt nicht, oder? Danke und Gruß, --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 00:08, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Ein Tool existiert hierfür nicht, beim verschieben von Abschnitten ist darauf zu achten das alle relevantenten Translate Tags intakt bleiben. lg --Steinsplitter (talk) 11:59, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Ja, aber die sind ja nummeriert, muss ich dann von Hand alle Nummerierungen ändern? ich blicke gerade überhaupt nicht durch. Gruß, --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 12:07, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Die Nummerierungen nicht bearbeiten. --Steinsplitter (talk) 12:15, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
So? Danke und Gruß, --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 13:43, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Ein paar Sachen waren kaputt, habe sie repariert. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:27, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
Super, vielen lieben Dank! Gruß, --Gnom (talk) Let's make Wikipedia green! 17:04, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Who request to delete Wikimedia Conference 2017/ESEA Meeting ?[edit]

Hi Steinsplitter,

I am reviewing the meeting but I cannot find any info other then the deletion log. I am wondering who request to delete this page, since I am the one who created but I didn't request to delete it. Thank you. --Liang(WMTW) (talk) 16:59, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

The author was Whym (no other user edited the page), he requested deletion. --Steinsplitter (talk) 17:10, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

Now that we have subpages for the signatures up and running[edit]

We should semi protect the main page. It is by far the most viewed page on meta at 30k views per day[1] Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:24, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Done :-). --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:25, 7 May 2017 (UTC)
By the way just noticed you are from Tyrol, one of the most amazing places in the world :-) We went their last year after Wikimania to climb a bunch of via ferrata. Amazing. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:29, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Translation admin[edit]

By the way how to I become a translation admin?

This has been translated to a number of languages Wiki_Project_Med/The_Cure_Award

But I do not know how to formally set it up?

Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:39, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

You have to ask at RFP. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:42, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

This is a parsing error. Does the problem still exists? --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:25, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Ihre Bot[edit]

Hallo, meow :)

It seems the bot is kinda lazy at SRAT, and sometimes it duplicates section heads.

I've done some tagging there today. Maybe you can run the archiver bot there to clean up the page a bit?

Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 15:50, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Done. Regarding the duplicate section headers: i have to check. --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:24, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Nahuatl Wikipedia 2[edit]

Hello; In this page, is over second closure for Nahuatl Wikipedia. Regards.--Marrovi (talk) 23:18, 8 October 2017 (UTC)


Hi Steinsplitter. I hope you are spending a very good autumn. I write you, because I notice something is broke in this page. Maybe you can check it. Regards, Jmvkrecords (Intra talk) 23:13, 17 October 2017 (UTC).

Hi @Jmvkrecords:, This needs a fix upstream. Filed as Phab:T178752. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 08:09, 22 October 2017 (UTC)


Danke, dass du meinen Benutzernamen geändert hast! Ich hoffe, das hat nicht zu viel Zeit in Anspruch genommen. Mahagaja (talk) 19:35, 21 November 2017 (UTC)

abuse rule: Emoji limits[edit]


ich wollte das Jahresarchiv von Template_talk:Userpage anlegen auf Template talk:Userpage/Archive/2017 , aber ich habe immer abuse rule: Emoji limits erhalten. Die Seite enthält natürlich viele non-latin Zeichen, aber soweit ich sehe kaum Emojis. Und ich verstehe auch nicht, was an Emojis nun schlimm wäre. Jedenfalls kann ich das Jahresarchiv der Disk-Seite nicht speichern. --𝔊 (Gradzeichen DiſkTalk) 18:26, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

Erst jetzt gesehen, existiert das Problem immer noch? --Steinsplitter (talk) 16:13, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Ja. --𝔊 (Gradzeichen DiſkTalk) 16:33, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Das Problem ist immer noch ungelöst. --𝔊 (Gradzeichen DiſkTalk) 11:37, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Filter 107[edit]

Hi Steinsplitter. In the hunt for overall condition limit hits, ran across global filter 107 last updated by former steward Barras. It has only had 1 hit in 16 months and consumes 2 conditions. I recommend disabling it. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 15:39, 1 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Sounds reasonable. Editing is stew restricted, maybe @Barras and MarcoAurelio: can disable it. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:51, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Oops, sorry didn't look up your flags first :D. Barras is no longer a steward, MarcoAurelio? — xaosflux Talk 15:59, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
Done. While initaly totally opposed, maybe we need two local groups at Meta: one to allow some people to edit local edit filters and another one granting the extra ability to edit the global rules as well. I'm still rather opposed as bad filter syntaxes can cause a big mess, but on the other hand we're loosing the experience from some experts like you or MusikAnimal. What a dilema :-) —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:02, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
We're both abuse filter helpers, but that gives us read-only rights. Looks like global abuse filter editors was a thing, not sure why it was removed. Maybe we should revisit the idea? I occasionally assist other wikis with filter improvements, especially now that we have a slow filter dashboard, that few of us have access to (since it contains private information like IPs, etc). It would be neat to not have to go in circles relaying information I see on the dashboard, essentially trial and error process until I see the filter is no longer slowing things down. — MusikAnimal talk 18:11, 2 February 2018 (UTC)
I've started a discussion at Meta:Babel#Restoring global abuse filter editor group. — MusikAnimal talk 18:38, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

Abusefilter on WS[edit]

Dear Steinsplitter, for your information, I "discovered" abusefilter on Wikispecies a couple of days ago, and today the Mediawiki instruction page, and imported a couple of configurations from Commons, just to try it out. I Have also noticed all admins on WS, so they can engage in this toll, which by all means looks useful. Dan Koehl (talk) 00:09, 13 February 2018 (UTC)

2017/2018 mixed in SRAT[edit]

Meow. I see that your bot on Steward requests/Permissions/Approved temporary is mixing 2017 and 2018 requests. Could those please moved back to the top and be left there for the next archive rounds? Yes, I know I should be reviewing those. I plan to do that shortly but if the bot keeps moving them up and down it's a bit difficult :-) I am also thinking on disbanding the page (although we should maybe wait until expiring global userrights are avalaible). I am also wondering if the bot could fetch the data and mark the requests as removed or expired itself? That'd save me a lot of redundant and boring work. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:28, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi, Move to the top. If the page is getting disbanded soon, it makes imho no sense to add new features to the script. Best --Steinsplitter (talk) 13:22, 26 February 2018 (UTC)
"Disbanding soon" is not something I'd say. As things stand now, it is likely the page will last for some more time, so if you want, you can implement those new functions. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:17, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Global preferences ready for testing[edit]


I am contacting you because of your support for Global settings in the 2016 Community Tech Wishlist. Global preferences are now available for beta testing, and need your help before being released to the wikis.

  1. Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
  2. Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
  3. Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
  4. Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, German Wiktionary, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
  5. Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations

Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 22:07, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Übersetzung freigeben[edit]

Hallo! Die Seiten WikiAlpenforum und aus konkretem Anlass WikiAlpenforum/Events/Toblach-Dobbiaco sollten mehrsprachig verfügbar sein. Soweit ich verstanden habe, kann das nur ein Admin; könntest du das eben mal machen? Ich würde dann zeitnah die Übersetzungen schreiben. Danke und Gruß–XanonymusX (talk) 10:50, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
