Hi! Leave me a message below.

UserRightsManager[edit source]

Hi X, if you get a chance, could you look at the fork I’ve made of another testwiki’s userrightsmanager (in my user space) and see if you can figure out why it’s not working, I’m guessing becuase it’s not in gadget space, but I could always use a second opinion. Thanks, Zippybonzo (talk) 06:54, 12 April 2023 (UTC)

While I am certainly no expert, I can’t seem to find an error in your script. However I did see that the response needs to be changed. It currently says {{done}} ~~~~ , but it should use the templates: AdminAcceptRfP and BureaucratAcceptRfP. Sorry I couldn’t be more help. I would ask username. - (TalkContributions) 10:12, 12 April 2023 (UTC)

For-Test Wiki is up and running again[edit source]

Hello fellow For-Test Wiki Bureaucrats,

I am writing to inform you that For-Test Wiki is now online and testing can resume as normal. Whatever caused the outage seemed to affect all sites hosted by myht.org. Hopefully this doesn't happen again.

Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 10:48, 13 April 2023 (UTC)

Bureaucrat test message[edit source]

My suppressor request[edit source]

I’ve gone and responded to your questions, feel free to ask me some more if you wish. Zippybonzo (talk) 16:09, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

I have responded there. - (TalkContributions) 16:17, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Number of advanced rights requests[edit source]

Dear X,

Please be aware that there are a number of advanced rights requests on the community portal where your input would be much appreciated. Please also continue to be diligent when testing and editing, as our only steward, who can remove bureaucrat rights from users, is currently busy and is unable to assist us.

Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 19:55, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Your suppressor request[edit source]

Hi X, I've decided to close your request for suppressor as successful, just be aware that I haven't granted the rights, as I can't really do that, but you can perform the actions that they do, just not using the suppression function (sort of defeats the purpose of suppressor, but it's the best I can do). Thanks, Zippybonzo (talk) 19:55, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Thank you for closing Zippy, but I would like it to be closed by Matttestzh, who is the only one that can actually grant the rights. I don't want them to think it is closed and doesn't need any action. Hope you understand, and Thanks anyway! - (TalkContributions) 20:11, 14 April 2023 (UTC)

Rights removal of Arkadiy[edit source]

Please do not remove rights of users, when they aren’t classified as inactive. Instead you can set a grace period and they can contact you to have their right extended if they come back online. Thanks, Zippybonzo (talk) 20:59, 17 April 2023 (UTC)

Though if the inactivity policy was discretionary, I would agree with your decision. Zippybonzo (talk) 21:00, 17 April 2023 (UTC)
Hi Zippy, the policy states that users whose only edits in the last month have been to request permissions rights can be revoked. Arkadiy’s only edits/actions in the last month were requesting permissions, so my removal was correct. Please revoke their rights again if you get a chance. I am not at my commuter, so it will be hard for me to do so. - (TalkContributions) 21:07, 17 April 2023 (UTC)
The way I read it is if after a month of their request they have no logged actions, so I will set a grace period of 2 days to meet in the middle. Zippybonzo (talk) 21:58, 17 April 2023 (UTC)
Oh, I see how you could read it like that. I agree, let’s meet in the middle. - (TalkContributions) 22:07, 17 April 2023 (UTC)

Thanks[edit source]

Heya! I didn't notice that undeleting those revisions of deletion test would reveal profanities and inappropriate personal information, so thanks for hiding those using revdel and suppression, respectively. Justarandomamerican (talk) 13:52, 21 April 2023 (UTC)

You're welcome. Sorry for the inconvenience of my test though. - (TalkContributions) 14:05, 21 April 2023 (UTC)
It's fine, we're here to test the software, after all, and minor inconveniences are okay. Justarandomamerican (talk) 14:06, 21 April 2023 (UTC)

User:Username[edit source]

Hi X, I was wondering if you think that Username deleting the page for twinkle and gadget definitions and undeleting them along with the permissions page recently. I would say that they shouldn’t be testing on those pages and they should be warned for it. Thanks, – Preceding unsigned comment added by Zippybonzo (talkcontribs).

I'm sorry that most of you are thinking about it that way. I was actually ruling some edits of mine I found unnecessary and didn't like very much out of the view history pages. Username (talk) 17:41, 22 April 2023 (UTC)
@Username: Ok understood, I thought that you were test deleting those pages. Thanks, Zippybonzo (talk) 18:35, 22 April 2023 (UTC)
Makes sense. - (TalkContributions) 22:37, 22 April 2023 (UTC)

Your myht wiki[edit source]

Hi X,

I was wondering if I would be able to help with your myht wiki that you mentioned earlier. Could you tell me what you mean by not able to login to the wiki, as in, a database error, or a connecting to the webserver error, if you can't connect to the webserver, and have shell access, try running 'cat /var/log/apache2/error.log' if it's an ubuntu host device. Otherwise, I may need to investigate how myht works. But I'll see what I can do. Zippybonzo (talk) 14:50, 8 May 2023 (UTC)

@Zippybonzo: Hey! Thanks for offering your help. I was able to find a tutorial and got it all figured out. The URL is http://xwiki.myht.org/index.php/Special:RecentChanges if you want to do some back-end testing there too. - (TalkContributions) 15:14, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
If you need any assistance with your wiki, just let me know, I'm always open to help. Also, upgrading to any major version is a pain, because you have to redownload the mediawiki files and move over the config files. I'll make an account there in case you need anything. Zippybonzo (talk) 15:34, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Actually, myht seems to make it alright to upgrade, sadly, if you self-host, it's not easy. Zippybonzo (talk) 15:38, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Yeah, myht is a pretty great wiki host with lots of extension possibilities and upgrading. I would recommend switching to it from self-hosting if possible. - (TalkContributions) 15:41, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
I would, but I prefer having root access to my hosting device and I have 100GB of storage on my hosting device, compared to however much myht lets you have and myht is a little slow to publish edits and perform actions. Also you have the renameuser extension on your wiki, but no user group can use renameuser. Also also, you might want to install the UserGroups extension, which allows you to manage user groups without going into LocalSettings.php. Zippybonzo (talk) 16:00, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Understandable. I have tried to install the UserGroups extension, but now my wiki doesn't work. Any ideas why? I followed all the instructions here. - (TalkContributions) 16:05, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Replace the require once bit with 'wfLoadExtension( 'UserGroups' ); as the require once is obsolete, and make sure all the parameters have semi-colons at the end, because otherwise the php file will throw an error when it's being processed. If you can access the apache error log, that might provide some clues. Zippybonzo (talk) 16:16, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
I have added it just as you have said, and all the parameters have semi-colons. It still isn't working and I don't know how to access the apache error log. Any other ideas? - (TalkContributions) 16:35, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Just uninstall the extension, as it clearly doesn't work on your wiki, though try running update.php first as that may fix it, unlikely, but it's the only thing I can think of, unless you have shell access, in which case try running cat /var/log/apache2/error.log, as I imagine that it's hosted on a linux based host device. Zippybonzo (talk) 16:42, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
I will uninstall it, but how do you run the update script? I don't have shell access either. - (TalkContributions) 16:44, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
http://xwiki.myht.org/xxupdate.php is what it says on myht. Zippybonzo (talk) 16:52, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. I ran the update and tried re-installing but it still didn't work. - (TalkContributions) 16:56, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
I'm more used to doing everything through the command line, where I just install an extension by downloading it on my computer, transferring it through scp, and then running tar -xzf and move it to the extensions folder, and then add it to localsettings. Let me know if you need any other help. Zippybonzo (talk) 17:05, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
@Zippybonzo: I will definitely let you know! This is compeletly off topic, but I was wondering if you would support me if I ran for the Steward role? I have come to many instances where the permissions would be helpful and I am wondering your opinion if I was to run. - (TalkContributions) 18:05, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
I would, but I feel there’s not a need when Justarandomamerican becomes a steward. I would support you for Checkuser. I would also support the creation of a role similar to sheriff on the testwiki, and if it were created would support you becoming one, I would also support the debundling of AbuseFilter-modify-restricted to interface admins and the ability for interface admins to add interface admin and remove Bureaucrat from users. In a nutshell, yes, when there is a need, but I would support Checkuser being given to you soon. Zippybonzo (talk) 19:52, 8 May 2023 (UTC)
Checkuser rights will never be granted to users that are not stewards per the privacy policy. I also believe there is a need because there needs to be more than one active steward for accountability. That is part of the reason why I would request steward rights. - (TalkContributions) 19:54, 8 May 2023 (UTC)

Your signature[edit source]

The part of your signature that says "Talk" instead links to your user page. Can you please fix this so that users can easily get to your user talk page? Justarandomamerican (talk) 01:19, 16 May 2023 (UTC)

I am so stupid. Sorry! - (TalkContributions) 01:21, 16 May 2023 (UTC)
It's okay, haha. It's a mistake that is easy to make. Justarandomamerican (talk) 01:24, 16 May 2023 (UTC)

Congrats![edit source]

Congratulations on your promotion to steward! I am sure you'll do a fantastic job here. And thanks for fixing my situation over at Testwiki.wiki. ApexAgunomu (talk) 10:29, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

Thanks Apex! Today, if I have time, I might propose a community unblock on Testwiki.wiki. - (TalkContributions) 11:02, 17 May 2023 (UTC)
That sounds great, and I hope it will be successful. ApexAgunomu (talk) 11:04, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

Also, if you're able to make that proposal today, I'm okay if you feel it's necessary to propose any editing or user rights restrictions as part of my unblock. That might make the proposal more likely to succeed, and I would abide by those conditions to the letter. Just wanted to add that. Also, why do I keep getting a filter message every time I edit someone's talk page here? ApexAgunomu (talk) 11:18, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

I will disable the filter. I don't know why that is happening. I will propose restirctions on holding permissions above administrator untill community approved, similar to here. - (TalkContributions) 11:27, 17 May 2023 (UTC)
 Done. - (TalkContributions) 13:28, 17 May 2023 (UTC)

I am writing to inform you that Zippybonzo has opened a steward rights request. If you are available, please ask a question or !vote on the request on the community portal.

Thanks, MediaWiki message delivery (talk) on behalf of the Steward team.

Filter 18[edit source]

Can you quickly change the edit count condition to 2000 as I can't edit filters with restricted actions for some reason. Zippybonzo (talk) 17:24, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

 Done. - (TalkContributions) 17:25, 22 May 2023 (UTC)

Please give user "Justarandomamerican" member rights on the private wiki. That is me. Justarandomamerican (talk) 12:04, 3 June 2023 (UTC)
