User:Rillke/SVGedit.js / User:Rillke/MwJSBot.jsEdit

Your User:Rillke/SVGedit.js / User:Rillke/MwJSBot.js thing for SVG file editing behaves in a somewhat annoying manner, since it apparently inserts a pre-canned generic message into the upload summary, and does not require users to provide any indication of the nature and purpose of their edits to an SVG file. This probably will not found to be acceptable in the long term... AnonMoos (talk) 14:30, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

AnonMoos, thanks for raising this concern. Are users mandated supplying an edit summary when using the upload form for overriding a file? Can you please start a discussion on User talk:Rillke/SVGedit.js? Thank you. -- Rillke(q?) 21:43, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
It can be annoying when a user uploads a new edited file version without supplying any indication of the purpose or nature of their edits. I was already annoyed with User talk:大诺史 with respect to File:Coat of arms of South Yemen (1967-1970).svg and and File:Coat of arms of South Yemen (1970-1990).svg... AnonMoos (talk) 06:32, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Can you please add your suggestion for a mandatory edit summary on User talk:Rillke/SVGedit.js? Thank you. -- Rillke(q?) 09:36, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
I basically know nothing about Javascript, and do not have Javascript turned on for all websites in my browser, and do not feel qualified to comment about any technical aspects -- however, I do know about UPLOAD SUMMARY best practices on Wikimedia Commons (Note: not quite the same thing as an edit summary, though your tool may slightly blur the distinction between the two). As the author of the tool, you can presumably take any comments made here into account... See near the bottom of User talk:Sarang right now for some quasi-technical comments. AnonMoos (talk) 19:36, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for sharing the reason for your hesitation. No technical understanding is required to comment on how a particular script should work or pointing to issues with it. That's also why the scripts point to themselves in their edit summary. It's about keeping discussion and changes together and allow other people who are watching the script but not my talk page to comment. I'd rather avoid doing changes to scripts seemingly out of the blue. -- Rillke(q?) 22:55, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

User:CommonsMaintenanceBot/autopatrolled candidates.jsonEdit

Hey Rillke,

The bot no longer updates this. Can this be fixed? 1989 (talk) 20:41, 13 July 2019 (UTC)

The bot takes the data from - however expose-data seems to be broken then. -- Rillke(q?) 22:13, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
  Done. Bot needs to be unblocked. -- Rillke(q?) 12:13, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins-data.js brokenEdit

Hello. It appears the group "Image-reviewers" has been renamed to "image-reviewers". Can you please fix that in your script? Thx. --Krd 16:24, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Maybe next week. I didn't change anything of its code recently. -- Rillke(q?) 18:59, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
  Done Krd, Didym Please unblock. -- Rillke(q?) 12:06, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Please replace Image-reviewer with image-reviewer in MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins.js and also in these user scripts. Thanks! -- Rillke(q?) 12:27, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

And why does User talk:CommonsMaintenanceBot link to User talk:Rillke/Discuss/2016? --Krd 16:26, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
Probably to avoid a double-redirect. -- Rillke(q?) 18:59, 15 July 2019 (UTC)


Der Bot dreht im Moment völlig durch, daher war vorläufig eine Sperre notwendig. --Didym (talk) 16:29, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

Das hat er auch schon als die OTRS Benutzergruppe umbenannt wurde. Wer nennt nur Benutzergruppen um ... -- Rillke(q?) 19:06, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
Hast du den Bot mitterweile wieder soweit unter Kontrolle, dass ich die Sperre aufheben kann? Notfalls vorerst ohne die Aktualisierung der Liste, aber wenigstens die anderen Aufgaben sollten wieder weiterlaufen können. --Didym (talk) 19:32, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Nein :-( Habe diese Woche zahlende Kunden. Nächste Woche schneide ich eine Scheibe Freizeit ab. -- Rillke(q?) 21:30, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
Der CommonsMaintenanceBot sollte jetzt wieder problemlos laufen. Bitte entsperren. -- Rillke(q?) 12:15, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Bitte ersetze Image-reviewer mit image-reviewer in MediaWiki:Gadget-markAdmins.js und ebenso in diesen Benutzerscripten. Danke! -- Rillke(q?) 12:28, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
  Done --Didym (talk) 13:28, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

Didym, vielen Dank. Könntest du auch noch diese Änderung anwenden? Es hat sich gezeigt, dass es einen Bug im Script gibt: Wenn eine Gruppe nicht anzeigen lässt (z.B. per User/common.js), dann werden alle Gruppen, die ein Benutzer hat und erst nach der versteckten Gruppe gelesen werden nicht gezeigt. -- Rillke(q?) 16:38, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

User:CommonsMaintenanceBot/autopatrolled candidates.jsonEdit

Hi, I don't know who places names in this botfile, but user:Lidewij C J. (id:262263) does not belong there. I think a dutch moderator who had some differences in the past with Lidewij C J. on NL-Wikipedia, put this user on that list. Who controls this? There is no reason this person needs to be patrollerd here. Regards, - Richardkiwi (talk) (talk) 23:07, 5 August 2019 (UTC)

Hi Richardkiwi, you are absolutely right that the list contains some users who shouldn't be auto-patrolled. It servers administrators to better find the needle in the haystack, because it is otherwise not easy to find users who do not participate in discussions and work in fancy topics. Administrators then individually assess whether a user might be trusted having their own edits patrolled. The patrol backlog is usually overwhelming. There are currently 392248+ unpatrolled edits. This in turn means that we can either decide to let edits go unpatrolled entirely or grant user groups to users.
The list states the criteria it is created from and offers links to view - besides others - global account information and the right log. Feel free to edit the description of Commons:Requests_for_rights/possible_autopatrolled_candidates, if you feel you should mention that appearing on this list doesn't automatically makes good candidates; that individual assessment is required. -- Rillke(q?) 05:37, 6 August 2019 (UTC)


Can I add a custom option to tag files for speedy for criteria (F10 / G10) similar to Help:QuickDelete? 1989 (talk) 18:08, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

It is possible but undocumented (and therefore not well supported; might break at any time). One would have to observe the vFC event on $(document), and if it says 'installed', insert elements on mdUserTags, mdFileTags, mdOpt and mdCommandsExec. The interesting code for that is MediaWiki:Gadget-VisualFileChange.js/core.js. If you really want to do this, either figure out yourself or please provide me with:
  1. An edit summary on the file description page and on the uploader's talk page
  2. The templates to insert to the file description page and at the user's talk page.
Otherwise it might be just easier to select "prepend text, notify uploaders", fill it in correctly and safe as a profile. -- Rillke(q?) 22:53, 6 August 2019 (UTC)
Here's the info. 1989 (talk) 15:06, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
