My script[edit]

  1. How did you get access to it?
  2. Why did you use it? You know GlobalCssJs might be deployed soon, making this a waste of effort.
  3. If you have a copy of the script I would appreciate it if you delete it, although it is under CC-BY-SA so I cannot force you to.

PiRSquared17 (talk) 14:44, 14 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

  1. If that is so private, this doesn't seem like a proper place to talk about it.
  2. .
    1. The new font was too unreadable when I went to any other sites that I have the css on.
    2. I'm not sure that Hoo man will work on Synchbot as User:Hoo_man/Synchbot is delayed for days.
    3. I would question that "soon" as the fix of bugzilla:62602 is nowhere near soon
  3. Deleted. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 12:45, 15 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]
    Did an admin give you the content of the page? I'm also somewhat upset that you linked to my script in the page text. I know that's the default but the whole reason I deleted the script was because I don't want to be blamed for stuff like this. PiRSquared17 (talk) 18:54, 17 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]
    Actually, I got the script myself (If you want to, I can tell you how tomorrow on IRC). And sorry for the links. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:56, 18 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Superprotect letter update[edit]

Hi Zhuyifei1999,

Along with more hundreds of others, you recently signed Letter to Wikimedia Foundation: Superprotect and Media Viewer, which I wrote.

Today, we have 562 signatures here on Meta, and another 61 on, for a total of 623 signatures. Volunteers have fully translated it into 16 languages, and begun other translations. This far exceeds my most optimistic hopes about how many might sign the letter -- I would have been pleased to gain 200 siguatures -- but new signatures continue to come.

I believe this is a significant moment for Wikimedia and Wikipedia. Very rarely have I seen large numbers of people from multiple language and project communities speak with a unified voice. As I understand it, we are unified in a desire for the Wikimedia Foundation to respect -- in actions, in addition to words -- the will of the community who has built the Wikimedia projects for the benefit of all humanity. I strongly believe it is possible to innovate and improve our software tools, together with the Wikimedia Foundation. But substantial changes are necessary in order for us to work together smoothly and productively. I believe this letter identifies important actions that will strongly support those changes.

Have you been discussing these issues in your local community? If so, I think we would all appreciate an update (on the letter's talk page) about how those discussions have gone, and what people are saying. If not, please be bold and start a discussoin on your Village Pump, or in any other venue your project uses -- and then leave a summary of what kind of response you get on the letter's talk page.

Finally, what do you think is the right time, and the right way, to deliver this letter? We could set a date, or establish a threshold of signatures. I have some ideas, but am open to suggestions.

Thank you for your engagement on this issue, and please stay in touch. -Pete F (talk) 18:18, 26 August 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Migration inter wiki links for ur wiki[edit]

Hi, Can you please run your bot to migrate interwiki links of newly created articles and categories to wikidata for urdu wikipedia? --Muhammad Shuaib (talk) 16:56, 6 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Sure, I'll file a request on ur:ویکیپیڈیا:درخواست_برائے_اختیارات_روبہ later. Note that my bot won't add interwikis to Wikidata, just remove them locally if they are already on Wikidata. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 17:59, 6 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Wikisource interwiki[edit]

Where in Wikidata the information that this translation is a 1937 work can be added?

The current Wikidata interwiki model is not suitable for Wikisource and another concept is being disputed AFAIK. Most translations should have their own Wikidata entries. Please do not move interwiki into wrong Wikidata entries. Ankry (talk) 10:16, 11 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]

@Ankry: Do you mean s:pl:Album (1937) is not referring to the same thing as s:cs:Album & s:en:The Album? Also my bot does not move anything to wikidata, what it see is that the local interlanguage links are redundant --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:35, 11 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Not exactly. I mean that there are at least two different Polish translations of this text: s:pl:Album (1937) and s:pl:Album (1926) and they both need to be linked in some way to d:Q3201687 (probably should be moved to separate Wikidata entries and then linked via another interwiki-like mechanism; so s:pl:Album (1937) will likely disappear from its current location in d:Q3201687). But if you do not move links to wikidata, it is OK. Ankry (talk) 08:49, 13 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
And note, that s:pl:Album disambig is intended as disambiguation page of all texts with this title, not only Chekhov's ones. So linking to this disambig is risky and likely to become incorrect in future. Ankry (talk) 08:54, 13 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
@Ankry: Right, multiple translations seem to be a problem for wikidata. How do you handle those with old interlanguage links (i.e How do you make other wikisources link to both of your translations)? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 10:13, 13 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]
We think of implementing solution like here (in LUA + js) Ankry (talk) 17:30, 14 August 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Wikispecies, Meta-Wiki and interwiki links[edit]

Hi :) Wikidata has just added support for links to Wikispecies, Meta-Wiki and Will your bot automatically start removing the redundant interwiki links from pages on those sites? If not, would it be possible to add support for them? Wikispecies in particular should have quite a lot. - Nikki (talk) 01:37, 23 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Right now it fetches the list of wikis to operate on from Special:WikiSets/2, so only Meta-Wiki will be autommatically started when pywikibot is updated to support it. The other two require local approval probably. I'll look into it when I have more time. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 03:16, 23 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Hi Zhuyifei1999,
I am reaching out to you because you signed up to receive updates about the Global Wikimedia survey.[1]

We will be hosting a public event online to present the data, a few examples on how teams will be using it for annual planning, and what are next steps for this project. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 10, at 9:00 am PST (1600 UTC), and the presentation will be in English. You can watch the livestream here, and ask question via IRC on #wikimedia-office.

If you are unable attend, you can also find the report on meta, and watch the recording of the event at a later time.

We hope to have you join us online! -- María Cruz 23:28, 2 October 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Tech ambassadors, "take two"[edit]

Hello tech ambassador! This month has seen a good influx of new faces in this crew \o/ , so it is time to reactivate our conversations. Now that we have a pretty good coverage of so many different projects, here are some topics for your consideration.

  1. Are there further thoughts on the role itself? I hope the questions available on Meta can help spark them. Please weigh in at Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#Tech ambassadors, take 2.
  2. How about we try and organise future collective work in a Phabricator workboard? Talk:Tech/Ambassadors/List#A Phab workboard for us? has all the details to explore this proposal.
  3. Finally, you are also welcome to comment at, should you happen to have suggestions for the Community Liaisons team, currently wondering how to measure "Wiki projects requesting beta features and other early deployments".

We hope to be able to host a live discussion in early 2018; until then, we're looking forward to hearing from you on Meta! All the best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk), on behalf of the Community Liaisons

Getting started on Phabricator[edit]

Greetings, ambassador!

As recently discussed within this group, we are ready to experiment with setting up a project and its related workboard on Phabricator, the platform used in the Wikimedia movement for project management, software bug reporting and feature requests. It will help us coordinate and cooperate better on projects that should require ambassadors' involvement.

For the time being, I'm just asking that you please add your Phabricator nickname next to your name in the ambassadors' table (you can create an account now if you don't have one already). I will send you further information soon! Thanks for your patience as we get to the operational stage of this effort :) Best, --Elitre (WMF) (talk) 14:48, 16 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]

YiFeiBot in arwiki[edit]

Hello. I've notice that your bot work in Arabic Wikipedia without bot flag, please request a bot flag in there to make sure that your bot work without problems. Thanks.--ASammour (talk) 08:43, 6 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@ASammour:. It's operating under Bot_policy#Global_bots. Is it not acceptable? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 14:18, 6 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

New Tech Ambassadors Phabricator board[edit]


You have listed yourself as an active Tech Ambassador, thank you for that!

We have recently set up a board on Phabricator so that you can learn about tasks and updates that are potentially interesting for your community, and take action when necessary. During the pilot phase we are currently in, to avoid confusion, only Wikimedia Foundation's Community Liaisons will mark tasks so that they end up in the various columns. Thanks for your understanding!

Please follow this Phabricator board (learn how to). You'll receive "notifications" for updates in all tasks listed there. In case you choose to receive them as email; we currently expect the volume to be fairly low, but in any case you can learn how to manage it.

If you have any feedback about this board, please leave your questions and comments on the Ambassadors talk page.

All the best, Trizek (WMF) (talk) 13:03, 24 May 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Incorrect interwiki connections[edit]


thanks for all your effort, but could you maybe look into your bot's edits like this one? Back in 2013 somebody mistakenly coded a link to an article in French Wikipedia as interwiki, nobody has ever realized and now your bot decided to transfer it to the Wikidata item. As the page this link was placed in is an old page of deletion requests, it is, of course, not corresponding to the French lemma. Do you think you could teach your bot to maybe raise the issue of such links, but not to transfer the link to Wikidata if the pages are in different namespaces (or by some other criterion)? Obviously these links should be fixed, but not the way the bot thought it had to be.

Best regards, → «« Man77 »» [de] 11:09, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

@Zhuyifei1999: There are more of those[1], please stop your bot ASAP from doing this, thx. --SI 14:47, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
(Edit conflict.) My bot doesn't add new links to Wikidata (there are other bots doing that half of the work), only removes those it sees that is already on Wikidata. In theory yes my bot could raise the issue, but in reality, there are many questions:
  • raise... where to? Some sort of noticeboard? As a global bot site-specific configuration won't scale (i.e. I'd have to go to every wiki it operates on to ask for a creation of a noticeboard.)
  • what criteria? and no cross-namespace isn't a solution. There are perfectly valid cross-namespace links that should be migrated
  • and what about the links on Wikidata that other bots already added? Should they be just left there? I would say my bot's current changes actually increases visibility of these bad links.
--15:02, 23 October 2018 (UTC)
Your bot follows the mistakes of @Emaus and EmausBot:, who links a lot of WP:Project pages with articles, Templates with articles, templates with project pages... This should be easy to teach a bot never to do this across mismatching namespaces.
And YiFeiBot should be told not to delete links that are in the midst of the page text, often in the middle of a sentence. Generally please don't ask us how to fix your bot's mistakes, you are responsible for what your bot does. --SI 15:30, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
> Your bot follows the mistakes of @Emaus and EmausBot:

Not done Explained above
> And YiFeiBot should be told not to delete links that are in the midst of the page text
Give an reasonable algorithm for this, thanks.
> Generally please don't ask us how to fix your bot's mistakes, you are responsible for what your bot does.
The bot did that it was asked to, to remove redundant links. Whether it was a mistake is your interpretation.
For any bot there will be a number of false positives and false negatives in unconventional circumstances. Our responsibility is to make sure these 'unconventional circumstances' are as few as possible, but that does not mean all 'unconventional circumstances' should be fixed / workarounded.
--Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 15:47, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

The deletion is wrong, the change should only go from [[en:example]] -> [[:en:example]], if a link goes from project name space to article name space. --Harald Krichel (talk) 15:51, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Again, whether-cross-namespace is not usable as a source of whether-to-remove, as explained above. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 15:57, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
The German Wikipedia has a very strict policy regarding inter-namespace links, so no project namespace page should have an interwiki-link to an article namespace page at all, unless it is commented out. Simply adding a colon to those would solve the problem. --Harald Krichel (talk) 16:25, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Then the policy should apply to the person writing the comment. You are free to make another bot that catches these links and add colons before Wikidata-processing bots come over. Of course, I can code that as a separate bot task, but not until this weekend I have time. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 17:03, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Why don't you just tell your bot not to remove interwikilinks from anything starting with de:Wikipedia: and de:Wikipedia_Diskussion. Can't be so difficult. --SI 18:38, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Do your research before asking. Thanks. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 18:51, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Why do you think it is more important to continue to produce mistakes than to look for a solution? The bot can run these edits later when we have found a working solution. --SI 21:52, 23 October 2018 (UTC)[reply]
