Jean-Roch Ottawa[edit]

Bonjour Benoit J'avais déjà mis la photo du chef Jean-Roch et je ne sais pas comment aller la chercher.

Bonjour User:Missatikamekw, j'ai répondu sur la page de discussion de l'article Jean-Roch Ottawa. Benoit Rochon (talk) 16:39, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

Test-administrateur?[edit]

Salut Benoit,

lorsque tu est actif au Wp/atj projet, tu ne voulez pas devenir le test-administrateur pour cette projet? (or somehow like that ;-))

Bonjour Danny

Oui bien sûr, if you think that woulod be useful, put me test admin !?

Merci Benoit Rochon (talk) 12:06, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Salut, just add your request (for the record) and we'll grant you the rights.

Congratulations! Atikamekw Wikipedia has been created![edit]

MF-Warburg has completed exporting the test wiki to the new location, so you should be good to go. Just a couple of things from here:

  • Have a final check in the coming days to make sure you think everything is ok. I am going to remove the test-admin right from your account one week from today.
  • Test-admins do not automatically become administrators on the new project. To become an administrator, you need to do the following:
  1. Create an "RfA" page (the equivalent of I:RFA or m:WM:RFA) and open a nomination there. It needs to run at least seven days.
  2. When seven days are up, go to m:SRP and ask the stewards to give you administrator rights. As long as there are no objections at the local wiki discussion, they will do that.
  3. Administrator status in small and startup wikis is always temporary. Stewards usually start people off with three months, but if you mention that you were a test admin here, they might let you start with six months.

Any questions, please get in touch. Again, congratulations, and good luck! StevenJ81 (talk) 16:56, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

Workaround for the recent problem we have been discussing on email.[edit]

(calling @MF-Warburg, too.)
On the whole, we will be a lot better off if we can get that bug fixed, as per the phabricator ticket. However, I think Benoit has a point on this issue, too. So I've developed a workaround that we could probably put in place reasonably easily, as long as the bug is not yet fixed. Note that we cannot implement this going back, for reasons described in the email discussion. But we could implement it going forward for every new project approval (or at least every new project approval where people want it).

Go to the page Wp/qdp/Ute pitutshe. (Wp/qdp is a test test that I set up to play with various capabilities on Incubator; qdp is not a real language code.) Leaving aside the page purge link I placed at the top, this page is set up as follows:

  • When the UTC hour is odd, the page shows a soft redirect to the new main page of atj Wikipedia.
  • When the UTC hour is even, the page shows a duplicate of Wp/moe/Ute pitutshe.
  • If you see the opposite behavior, try purging the page cache using the link I provided.

Obviously, this particular example is a mixed example; if we were doing this "for real" I would use the soft redirect to the new location of the moe main page, of course, not the atj main page. And instead of having the page switch by odd and even UTC hours, I'd simply pick some time stamp that is safely after the new wiki will have been created (and perhaps even safely after the test wiki is deleted):

  • Before that time point the original main page appears.
  • After that time point the soft redirect appears.

So then the steps to implement would be as follows:

  1. As soon as possible after the test is approved, but before the new wiki is created, add this functionality to the test's main page.
  2. As soon as possible after the test is exported, remove the functionality from the main page on the new wiki.
  3. Administrator deleting the test project (often me) remembers not to delete the main page.

How does this sound? StevenJ81 (talk) 14:22, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

The top priority should be to get phabricator:T126827 fixed as it will solve the problem. I don't know what Benoit's point is except that this is a problem that should be solved as soon as possible. But I am happy to implement such a workaround for the main page of the next tests that get approved while the bug still persists. Since we nowadays even get to know precise hours and days when a wiki will be created in advance, it should be easy to do (even with just primitively *replacing* the main page with a link to the then-not-yet-existing-wiki shortly before the creation). --MF-W {a, b} 21:08, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Test-administrator status[edit]

Bonjour, Benoit. Your test-admin status for the Innu-Aiman project is about to expire. I notice that you haven't been around recently, and that the test has been quiet since late 2017. If you want to keep the status up, just put a request up at I:RFTA and we'll take care of it. Alternatively, you can just let it expire for now, and if/when the test gets going again, you can reapply at that point. Up to you. A bientôt... StevenJ81 (talk) 20:02, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
