Incubator:Administrators' noticeboard

From Wikimedia Incubator
(Redirected from Incubator:AN)
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the page to request attention from test administrators, administrators and bureaucrats. Note what they can do.

Administrators can:

  • protect and unprotect pages
  • delete and undelete pages
  • delete images and other uploaded files
  • block and unblock users
  • edit the interface and other protected pages

Test administrators can do the same, but only within their tests (therefore they cannot edit the interface).

Bureaucrats can do all the above, as well as:

  • grant administrator/bureaucrat status
  • rename users
  • grant/revoke bot flags

Note: Only Stewards may remove adminship or bureaucratship. If you want this to be done go to Requests for permissions at the Meta-Wiki.

If there is no response, you may wish to try the IRC channel, #wikimedia-incubator.

  • For deletion requests, use I:RFD for test deletions and {{delete}} for speedy deletions.
  • For user rights (admins, test-admins, bots, ...) or renamings, see I:A.

Account creator flag[edit]

Hi, fellow sysops.

Merge history[edit]

Can some admin merge history of Template:Wy/ko/Pagebanner into Template:Wy/ko/문서 배너? It's the same thing created without knowing same thing exists. Test-admins cannot perform history merge, so... (PS: Please merge the Documentation as well, thanks.) — regards, Revi 15:13, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

In principle, sure. Do you intend for Template:Wy/ko/문서 배너 to be the surviving page? (Also, I don't see documentation subpages. Where are they?) StevenJ81 (talk) 15:22, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, that should survive. (Just realized that destination page doesn't have documentation, I'll just move it after you're done with that.) — regards, Revi 15:28, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
You can, by deleting, moving and restoring. --MF-W {a, b} 16:03, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Please create global template {{ISBN}}[edit]

So we can get rid of magic words. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:02, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Magic words aren't going to disappear so fast, if ever, notwithstanding the RfC on enwiki. And I personally oppose their disappearing. But if you feel strongly about this, create a template at {{Wp/qdp/ISBN}} and I will globalize it. StevenJ81 (talk) 11:14, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
Utter nonsense, we don't want global templates for the content. --MF-W {a, b} 14:39, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
The idea is that I would use {{Use prefixed copy}} while globalizing, to try to get people to create prefixed versions. But I don't favor this whole enterprise anyway. StevenJ81 (talk) 14:42, 28 July 2017 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg: Why would a global template be a bad thing in this case? It's replacing hardcoded MediaWiki. We have a few such as {{Delete}} (or even {{tl}}), so why not this? —Justin (koavf)TCM 19:29, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Delete is the only one that doesn't throw error messages on a main space page. All the others are really designed for user, talk, and project pages. And if we create a global template, then the tests won't create local templates that would be exported at the time of approval. No, in general, global templates not for Incubator maintenance are a bad idea. StevenJ81 (talk) 20:55, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
Okay but we'll need something to deal with the actual ISBN magic link errors that we have. The interiwiki map includes aliases for PMID and RFC but not ISBN/ISSN. —Justin (koavf)TCM 06:49, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Can you show me a page that has one? Do we have a (created or uncreated) category for that? Honestly, if the only "error" is that a page uses a magic link, I'm inclined not to worry about it. (I found one page in the notional Category:Pages with ISBN errors, and that is because the ISBN is rendered in non-Arabic numerals. But I think that's the test's problem, not ours.)
