Updated scripts[edit]

Hi Bawolff. I edited your chick.js to update you to the latest version of TemplateScript. You were using a much older version called regex menu framework, so the main difference you'll see is an improved regex editor and cleaner custom scripts. I also updated deprecated functions and made your scripts HTTPS-compatible. Let me know if anything breaks. :) —Pathoschild 19:05, 09 August 2015 (UTC)

Major breakages[edit]

Hi. Almost all the major automation on Wikinews has gone away. Even WN:Make lead is broken, this time. (Make lead didn't break last Friday, when they decided to stop loading gadgets that don't use ResourceLoader; at that time we temporarily lost all the important things except Make lead, getting them all back by declaring in MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition that they do use ResourceLoader.) I'm glad to see my dialog tools haven't broken yet (modulo declaring that the gadget uses ResourceLoader)... though I admit I'm pretty worried since they seem to have gotten extremely reckless about breaking things that aren't theirs (after all, if it's software and it's someone else's, it can't be important, right?).

Sorry, I guess my patience with the Foundation has gotten stretched beyond the limits of its elasticity.

Anyway, if there's anything you can suggest to bring any of it back — and if there's anything you can suggest to make the tools I'm developing more robust against future breakage by software "improvements" — it would be greatly appreciated. --Pi zero (talk) 19:44, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Its due to [3]. I didn't realize my scripts actually used that. Guess they do. Bawolff 04:24, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Using IP, this error message is displayed on CAT:REV, after I click OK for purge[edit]

ReadyAlert gadget fails at life, please tell Bawolff. error: ReferenceError: sajax_init_object is not defined (talk) 21:41, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

I think I've got it fixed (mimicking at MediaWiki:Gadget-readyAlert.js bawolff's fix to User:Bawolff/mwapilib.js). --Pi zero (talk) 22:05, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Popular articles[edit]

Hello. Long time no chat. I was just writing to inform you Template:Popular articles has been broken since June. Is there a chance it might be fixed? Cheers. DragonFire1024 (Talk to the Dragon) 21:49, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

@DragonFire1024: Fixed. Tool labs admins in their infinite wisdom decided it would be a good idea to disable all scheduled jobs :s Bawolff 18:10, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Please sign new Wikimedia confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information by 15 December[edit]

This is a message from the Wikimedia Foundation. Translations are available.

Wmf logo vert pms.svg

As you may know, the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees approved a new "Access to nonpublic information policy" on 25 April 2014 after a community consultation. The former policy has remained in place until the new policy could be implemented. That implementation work is now being done, and we are beginning the transition to the new policy.

An important part of that transition is helping volunteers like you sign the required confidentiality agreement. All Wikimedia volunteers with access to nonpublic information are required to sign this new agreement, and we have prepared some documentation to help you do so.

The Wikimedia Foundation is requiring that anyone with access to nonpublic information sign the new confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain their access. You are receiving this email because you have access to nonpublic information and are required to sign the confidentiality agreement under the new policy.

Signing the confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information is conducted and tracked using Legalpad on Phabricator. The general confidentiality agreement is now ready, and the OTRS agreement will be ready after 22 September 2015. We have prepared a guide on Meta-Wiki to help you create your Phabricator account and sign the new agreement: Confidentiality agreement for nonpublic information/How to sign

If you have any questions or experience any problems while signing the new agreement, please visit this talk page or email me ( Again, please sign this confidentiality agreement by 15 December 2015 (OTRS users have until 22 December 2015) to retain your access to nonpublic information. If you do not wish to retain this access, please let me know and we will forward your request to the appropriate individuals.

Thank you,
Gregory Varnum (User:GVarnum-WMF), Wikimedia Foundation
