AWB testing page

Hello an AWB testing page would be really useful.--Angelo Pisani (talk) 18:14, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Angelo Pisani Sure, I can see a use case for that. Please feel free to create AutoWikiBrowser test as the title for the page, then categorize it with Category:Special test pages. Dmehus (talk) 18:16, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Dmehus Done--Angelo Pisani (talk) 19:30, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Angelo Pisani That's great. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 19:43, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
PS the page must be added here.--Angelo Pisani (talk) 13:58, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Angelo Pisani:  Done. --Brewster239 (T/C) 14:53, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. I've updated the japanese version too.--Angelo Pisani (talk) 15:21, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Rights removed from ten (10) users. Dmehus (talk) 01:12, 31 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]


I propose that we use the following as our new wordmark. What does people think?
MacFan4000 (Talk Contribs) 20:33, 16 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This is so small, and our logo already includes the words "Public Test Wiki." I'm not certain we need this here. I propose we just have the space allocated for the wordmark in New Vector be whitespace instead. Dmehus (talk) 22:50, 16 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
This is too small Shakil (talk) 08:20, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hello MacFan4000, I would like to say that the proposed wordmark is small and, at least to me, it seems it's width is more than its height. And well that's not an issue.
I can't read what is written on the two sides of the triangle. It looks like it's pixels has broken and the current one seems to be more clearer. Thanks:) Mazzaz (talk) 05:09, 18 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Install Variables and Arrays extensions


May Variables and Arrays extensions be installed so that I test their behavior?

Thanks in advance! — Preceding unsigned comment added by DarkPaladin125 (talkcontribs) 02:45, 7 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

DarkPaladin125 Apologies for the slight delay in responding, but this is quite a reasonable request and has now been  done. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 22:00, 8 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
No problem regarding the delay. Thanks a lot. 😄
DarkPaladin125 (talk) 23:18, 8 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Face-smile.svg Thank you and no problem. :) Dmehus (talk) 23:36, 8 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Various skins and extensions

Could you please enable the Cosmos skin and install Message Walls so that I could test replicating Fandom on Miraheze? Thank you! Firestar464 (talk) 10:16, 11 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Cosmos  Done, Wikia extensions we can't do because Wikia use too far an old & forked version of MediaWiki. It's also not in its own git repo. Something like WikiForum might work. RhinosF1 (talk) 09:29, 13 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Cosmos was already available. You should be able to set it in your Preferences. RhinosF1 (talk) 09:36, 13 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Is it possible to just download that section of the repo, or do I have to download the entire repo? Firestar464 (talk) 06:38, 14 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Well, I think it's because SocialProfile is required to use message walls. We'd rather prefer not to enable SocialProfile here, as it's got issues with GlobalUserPage, amongst other things. Dmehus (talk) 02:26, 16 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

TestWiki:Request permissions

Hello. One user requested permissions without having written what permissions. In case he does not answer in how many days the request must be closed? Thanks! Fffv7787 (talk) 14:43, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

@Fffv7787 I think such those request should be closed immediately. I did not find much in the policy --MdsShakil (talk) 14:43, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@MdsShakil Thank you! Fffv7787 (talk) 14:47, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Hello. Fffv7787 and MdsShakil, no! Such requests should not be closed (declined) immediately. The best practice to deal with such requests is to ask which permissions they want and put the request on hold. If they didn't reply close the request as stale after the few days (preferable after 4-5 days). --Mazzaz (talk) 14:55, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Mazzaz Hello. I reopen this request. Fffv7787 (talk) 15:15, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Request for Consul: Magogre

Magogre · talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log.

Hello, I am Magogre. I have been around since the past few months translating and assigning permissions to users at TestWiki:Request permissions. I would like to request the consul rights to help out in removing the rights of the inactive admins, thereby, helping to reduce the workload of the current consuls which are stewards or sysadmins. Thank you for considering, --Magogre (talk) 08:03, 10 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • SupportVery helpful and friendly user. Fffv7️⃣7️⃣8️⃣7️⃣ (talk) 11:51, 10 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • BA candidate.svg Weak oppose - really you are a good contributor but I think you have needed little more experience for this role. Your 1st edit in this wiki only 2 months ago --MdsShakil (talk) 13:53, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    Thank you for expressing your opinion. The edit you are referring to, was made on 14 June and it has been 3 months since then. I know this may be an early case but keeping in view the work stewards and sysadmins regularly do on meta, phab and elsewhere, I can help help to perform the consul duties on this wiki to ease their work here. --Magogre (talk) 16:53, 13 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support Friendly and helpful 🌸 Sakura emad 💖 (talk) 05:33, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • I oppose, there is certainly not any "strong workload" and I've never heard of you until this request. Also, the removal of inactive sysops is done once a month and partially automated. Naleksuh (talk) 08:43, 27 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Support I agree there is no strong workload but it never hurts to have more volunteers. I patrol TestWiki from the shadows and Mazzaz is incredibly helpful in fulfilling rights requests and not only that, he's helpful across Miraheze globally. Currently, though we have 6 consuls, none of them are active on TestWiki (understandable, most of them occupy global roles) and I believe the addition of Mazzaz would be beneficial to the local community. For this reason, I support this request. Agent Isai (talk) 04:38, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]
