AWB testing page[edit source]

Hello an AWB testing page would be really useful.--Angelo Pisani (talk) 18:14, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply][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][reply]
@Dmehus Done--Angelo Pisani (talk) 19:30, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]
Angelo Pisani That's great. Thank you. Dmehus (talk) 19:43, 22 May 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]
PS the page must be added here.--Angelo Pisani (talk) 13:58, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]
@Angelo Pisani:  Done. --Brewster239 (T/C) 14:53, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]
Thank you. I've updated the japanese version too.--Angelo Pisani (talk) 15:21, 23 May 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]

Wordmark[edit source]

I propose that we use the following as our new wordmark. What does people think?

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][reply]
This is too small Shakil (talk) 08:20, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply][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][reply]

Install Variables and Arrays extensions[edit source]

Hello.

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][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][reply]
No problem regarding the delay. Thanks a lot. 😄

Various skins and extensions[edit source]

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][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][reply]
Cosmos was already available. You should be able to set it in your Preferences. RhinosF1 (talk) 09:36, 13 August 2021 (UTC)[reply][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][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][reply]

TestWiki:Request permissions[edit source]

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][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][reply]
@MdsShakil Thank you! Fffv7787 (talk) 14:47, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply][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][reply]
@Mazzaz Hello. I reopen this request. Fffv7787 (talk) 15:15, 28 August 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]
AlPaD, Magogre, and MdsShakil, I thought I'd jump in to clarify the uncertainty in response to AlPa's question. Magogre's response is generally correct, but there's not a specific timeframe. It really depends. It could be two or three days, or 4-7 days, and then closed as stale, but yeah, basically (a) don't close it immediately and (b) don't close it as declined; rather, use stale. Hope that helps. :) Dmehus (talk) 04:48, 12 October 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]

 Rights removed from ten (10) users, noting that HeartsDo was given a temporary, three-month inactivity exception, with Consul discretion due to their activity from StructuredDiscussions seemingly not counting. Dmehus (talk) 23:46, 16 October 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]

New policy for abuse filter[edit source]

Hello guys, I am Matttest. I have created a new proposed-for-policy page for abuse filter. In fact now there are no policies or guidelines related to the abuse filter test, and I think it’s better to create one. Currently, I think this page can be merge into the TestWiki policy TestWiki:Main policy. What do you think? Please give some suggestions for the community. You may also change this proposal page. Regards, —-Matttest (talk) 09:45, 8 November 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]

P.S. I think the testing of abuse filter is a serious action, and it may be misused. It has its importance to be part of the policy of TestWiki (and maybe by merging to TestWiki:Main policy or TestWiki:Testing policy). I hope you guys can give out some opinions concerning this.

TNT module[edit source]

Why does my module that works good in meta doesn't work here? The imported module here links to Module:TNT for some reason, TNT does nothing for the template, and there's not even an invoke code or require code in lua Anpang (talk) 08:49, 19 November 2021 (UTC)[reply][reply]
