Bot - database report[change]

Hi. I'd like permission to run a bot that will report words that exist on enwiktionary but not here, to help provide users with a place to contribute (i.e. a list of words to create here). Thoughts? Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 04:32, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

Somewhat related, you may like this script: w:en:User:Koavf/simplife.js. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 05:02, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
I'll try it out, but you should know that using global variables like wgPageName rather than mw.config.get is deprecated (same with using addOnloadHook). --DannyS712 (talk) 05:05, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks. If you have suggestions on how I can rewrite it, that would be appreciated. —Justin (koavf)TCM☯ 05:47, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
So it’ll be a bot that updates a page regularly? Minorax (talk) 13:31, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
Idk if this will help but do check out User:HydrizBot’s page. Minorax (talk) 13:36, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Is it possible to also have a page that includes all pages in Special:WantedPages? Minorax (talk) 05:23, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Sure, https://simple.wiktionary.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=querypage&qppage=Wantedpages retrieves it as a query. --DannyS712 (talk) 06:13, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Is it possible to go beyond 5000? Minorax (talk) 08:03, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Not from that query, but I can recreate the query used (https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/plugins/gitiles/mediawiki/core/+/refs/heads/master/includes/specials/SpecialWantedpages.php) if needed. It'll just be really slow --DannyS712 (talk) 16:14, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Seems good. Minorax (talk) 17:03, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
I support this proposal. Thoughts @Brett? Minorax (talk) 17:03, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
Yes, it seems like a good proposal.--Brett (talk) 19:52, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Kindly create the bot’s userpage and do a trial run. Minorax (talk) 23:32, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: Any updates? Minorax (talk) 05:30, 17 January 2020 (UTC)
Sorry, forgot about this. I don't remember how I was planning to code this, but when I do I'll be back :( ...--DannyS712 (talk) 06:13, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

Movement Learning and Leadership Development Project[change]


The Wikimedia Foundation’s Community Development team is seeking to learn more about the way volunteers learn and develop into the many different roles that exist in the movement. Our goal is to build a movement informed framework that provides shared clarity and outlines accessible pathways on how to grow and develop skills within the movement. To this end, we are looking to speak with you, our community to learn about your journey as a Wikimedia volunteer. Whether you joined yesterday or have been here from the very start, we want to hear about the many ways volunteers join and contribute to our movement.

To learn more about the project, please visit the Meta page. If you are interested in participating in the project, please complete this simple Google form. Although we may not be able to speak to everyone who expresses interest, we encourage you to complete this short form if you are interested in participating!

Additional interface for edit conflicts on talk pages[change]

Sorry, for writing this text in English. If you could help to translate it, it would be appreciated.

You might know the new interface for edit conflicts (currently a beta feature). Now, Wikimedia Germany is designing an additional interface to solve edit conflicts on talk pages. This interface is shown to you when you write on a discussion page and another person writes a discussion post in the same line and saves it before you do. With this additional editing conflict interface you can adjust the order of the comments and edit your comment. We are inviting everyone to have a look at the planned feature. Let us know what you think on our central feedback page! -- For the Technical Wishes Team: Max Klemm (WMDE) 14:15, 26 February 2020 (UTC)
