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.

Hi, I am working on dty Wiktionary and to increase the number of article (words) I am planning for importing pages from file (using pywikibot), currently I am importing pages to ne Wiktionary. Is it possible to create and import pages to incubator project?--Nirajan pant (talk) 04:53, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

I'd need to let someone who is more knowledgeable about the technical side of things to respond. I will mention the following:
  • We are normally reluctant to allow bot creation of pages here on Incubator. Consider that even if we were to do so, there are two important items that would need to be true before Wt/dty would ever be approved:
    • A community needs to be working on the test, not just you.
    • Pages have to have substantive content.
  • For that reason, at very minimum, you need to provide a few very specific details here before we'd even consider it. In particular:
    • What do you want to import?
    • From where do you want to import?
    • Do you expect to end up with finished pages, or are you looking to import infrastructure that you can then build on?
Thanks. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:30, 21 February 2018 (UTC)
I have 2 or 3 Doteli word collection books in hand (in printed form). I have planned to reference those books and use my own experience to write articles for more than 1000 words. The articles will be finished pages which includes-
  • Parts of Speech
  • Meaning in Doteli language itself
  • Uses Example (for all words as far as possible)
  • Translation in Nepali and English
I think it would be easier to create some structured data (e.g. excel sheet) with the above sections so that I can use and revise it easily later. This is why I have asked for the possibility of importing.--Nirajan pant (talk) 04:31, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
@MF-Warburg, Ooswesthoesbes, Danny B.: I don't have the expertise to take this further. StevenJ81 (talk) 15:53, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
.xls cannot be readily imported via Special:Import, so in this case it would be required to write a Python program and upload the pages per bot. While this would blow up the article count, it won't be very helpful for the project's approval. It seems that the amount of contents as described above would be as easy to be manually written compared to writing an xls-sheet, a python program and checking all pages manually (which is a requirement in my opinion). I would advise to simply create the pages one by one manually and concentrate on writing a few, large and complete pages with multiple translations, usage descriptions, grammar etc, than uploading 2.000 pages with just a little bit of information. --OWTB (talk) 16:54, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
@Ooswesthoesbes: thank you for your suggestions. As your advice I will work on it manually.--Nirajan pant (talk) 07:46, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
