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)

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)
