Welcome back, Microchip08[edit]

I wanted to ask you what you think of the add-on for Firefox:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/source-fill-for-wikinews/?src=collection

There is a discussion open about it at the water cooler but I am not sure whether you are watching the page.

Script?[edit]

Hello Microchip08,

Do you use a script for tagging articles? The edit summary looks interesting. I spend a lot of time doing this manually in at least two clicks plus manual typing and waiting and this gets tedious. I thought I asked before but I don't see this question here now; probably I forgot to ask.

Yes; it's at User:Microchip08/vector.js. If you find it useful, we could add it as a gadget. Microchip08 (talk) 01:49, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
Works with the timeless skin too. But you still check the history tab of each article by hand first? Maybe the script can be extended to show the last edit date in the label or on mouse hover in a tooltip? --Gryllida (chat) 05:41, 19 October 2018 (UTC)
Why does this not make any edit? --Gryllida (chat) 21:30, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
Your script seems to currently not work also. It says that `"api" is not defined.` --Gryllida (chat) 21:38, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
Looks like it depends on Bawolff/mwapilib. My script is two years' old and the way MediaWiki works with JavaScript has changed a lot -- I'm surprised it still works to be honest. Microchip08 (talk) 08:49, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
Most of our older generation of automation uses that library, I think. --Pi zero (talk) 13:31, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
Updated it to use the api directly. Here are scripts to add abandoned, under review, editing tags without refreshing the page.
When using the {{editing}} script I suggest to click the button first and then click 'edit' so that the 'editing' tag is already in the article source by the time you load the edit box. Gryllida (talk) 23:48, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

i asked you a question on irc[edit]
