Hello Alan012! The bot will only be used for edits while debugging the pywikipedia framework if any wiki-specific issues arise. Unless the wiki guidelines specify all bots need a bot flag, I'd rather refrain from having one: debugging is generally because something is wrong, and if I miss a buggy edit, it's better to have it in recent changes ;). Anyway, thanks for the note. Valhallasw 20:18, 2 Awst 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

Hi Alan, the correct range is (which should be globally blocked), as you can see from its block-log on, while /16 is an enormous range containing a lot of italian good users for further references please contact me on my talk page on italian wikipedia. Have a nice day! --Vituzzu 12:06, 5 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

Many thanks. That's odd, because when I do a WHOIS lookup on any of the addresses, it gives me the /16. Anyway, I concur that all the addresses seen are in the /18 that you quote (first quarter of the /16) so I've narrowed the range of the block. Alan 22:07, 5 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]
Yes, the whole /16 class belongs to infostrada but the vandal seems to have assigned adress from /18 subnet only, it depends on his eographical collocation, regards--Vituzzu 12:02, 6 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

Negeseuon Mediawici

Diolch Alan am fynd ati i ddiweddaru a chyfieithu rhai o'r negeseuon Mediawici. Efallai dy fod yn gwybod eisoes bod modd diweddaru'r neges diofyn (default) ar (Betawiki). Weithiau mae camgymeriadau mewn cyfieithiadau'n codi oherwydd nad oedd y wybodaeth am y neges ar Betawiki'n ddigon manwl pan aethpwyd ati i'w gyfieithu. Pan ddof fi (a chyfrannwyr eraill Betawiki) ar draws negeseuon heb wybodaeth amdanynt rwy'n ychwanegu hynny o wybodaeth sydd gennyf i'r is-dudalen /qqq o'r neges. Byddai'n gret petaet yn gallu ychwanegu gwybodaeth at y tudalennau /qqq hefyd - mae hyn yn gyfraniad tuag at gyfieithu'r rhyngwyneb i bob iaith ar draws Mediawiki gyfan. Fe wnaf fi barhau i edrych ar dy ddiwygiadau i'r negeseuon ar Wicipedia er mwyn eu diwygio ar Betawiki lle bod angen. Yn anffodus mae'r holl fusnes uwchlwytho lluniau ar Wicipedia yn mynd â llawer gormod o'm hamser felly mae'r bwriad i orffen cyfieithu'r negeseuon mewn byr amser wedi hen fynd ar chwal!

Ynglŷn â'r neges MediaWici:Tooltip-preview - nid wyf fi wedi cael trafferth gyda hyd y neges hwn fy hunan. Rwyn defnyddio firefox a'r wyneb/croen Monobook. Pa we-lywiwr a chroen wyt ti'n defnyddio? Holi ydwyf er mwyn gallu ehangu'r nodiadau /qqq i'r neges ar betawiki ydw i - nid am fy mod am newid y neges eto. Ateb fi'n Gymraeg neu'n Saesneg, p'un bynnag sydd haws gennyt ar ddydd Sul braf o Hydref:) Lloffiwr 13:26, 12 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

Okay, I'll reply in English (on an overcast Tuesday in fact). First, about the /qqq subpages of the MediaWiki, I don't quite understand. I assume that these are things that just exist over on Betawiki, right? Or do we have "qqq" pages here as well? Also I don't quite get what information you are asking me to add to them, as I'd rather assume from your description that they would be written by the people who develop the software, and referred to by the people who translate the messages -- or is this wrong?
Re the Tooltip-preview, I'm using Firefox, and the "skin" is whatever the default is -- in "fy newisiadau" it claims to be MonoBook. Sometimes I use Windows XP and sometimes Linux, though Firefox in both cases. I'll try temporarily undoing my change and also trying it with IE, and maybe even try to get a screenshot if I can work out how to do that. Alan 17:30, 14 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]
I've now done various tests under Windows, first by explicitly putting in the "os gwelwch yn dda", and then by removing the local MediaWici page entirely so that the default applied, and whether I look at it with Firefox or with IE, I can't reproduce the earlier problem at all. I'll leave MediaWici:Tooltip-preview deleted for the moment, and try again some time on Linux, though the machine with Linux is in a different location so I can't check ir right now. Alan 17:48, 14 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]
Okay, here is a screenshot with Firefox (version / Linux. You can see the truncation. I'm going to restore the shortened message again. Alan 07:53, 15 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

Diolch i ti Alan am dy waith ymchwil ar y broblem gyda'r neges Tooltip-preview. I can now add the extra information on the length of the message as it appears on Linux / Firefox to the /qqq information page on Betawiki and raise it as a general issue on the Betawiki discussion pages. If you don't mind I may have other requests for detailed information on problems encountered with the use of translated messages, again in order to enhance the information on the site and possibly also to request amendment of the original English message, if necessary.

As to Betawiki, if you're interested then you'd better read the introduction to it on Betawiki. As with all wikis, anybody can contribute. Although 2 Mediawiki developers designed the site, it is up to all the Betawiki users to create the information pages. Lloffiwr 14:52, 18 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

Fandal Disney

Hi Alan, sut mae? You may have noticed I permabanned "two" users yesterday, namely Arbennig:Contributions/Iluvteletubbies and Arbennig:Contributions/Sjakoj. They were both sock puppets of a highly disruptive vandal with a bee in his/her bonnet about Disney films usually referred to as the "Disney vandal". Some details here on en.: 1, 2 + list of socks. Latest incarnation here: Arbennig:Contributions/Spokenames. As you know more about the technical side of things than me, could you look into the possibility of applying a range block (see also the list on en)? We could do without him/her shifting their activities here (also been active on Simple English and possibly elsewhere). Diolch a chofion, Anatiomaros 15:11, 28 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

It's a job to know what to do. Looking at the list of IP addresses, there are no one or two ranges that would neatly cover the set of addresses, although I see that someone has suggested a couple of ranges that would get a number of them. There is always the possibility of "collateral damage", so how about if for now we just wait and see, and start getting tough if trouble recurs? At least one thing in our favour if range blocks are required is that the addresses are outside the UK (southern USA), which reduces the chance of collateral damage. (Fortunately the same also applies for that range in Milan that I blocked -- I had hoped to be able to lift the block, but there was an annoying stalemate where the ISP wouldn't investigate the individual user without having rather more log information than the checkusers would have been likely to provide.) Alan 17:07, 28 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]
Thanks for looking into this, Alan. Your suggestion that we wait and see seems fair enough given - as I suspected - the technical difficulties. Maybe I over-reacted a bit, but when I saw the extent of what they've been trying to deal with on English wikipedia I thought "s**t, and now we've got him as well!" If the worst happens at least they are addies in southern USA so are unlikely to cause much "collateral damage". Try and keep an eye open for any unusual edits to films/related categories though; he/she mixes innocuous edits with vandalism, usually in the guise of correcting an edit by one of his socks. All in all we could do without the hassle - I came here late the other night with the idea of writing a quick article and instead spent all my time dealing with this. Cofion, Anatiomaros 17:22, 28 Hydref 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]
Update. Following the lead of the English wiki, I've just blocked the ranges,, and for 3 months (theirs was a one month block, but I think we can afford it). You might find this useful/interesting too: Bambifan101 and his socks. Anatiomaros 23:19, 9 Tachwedd 2008 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]

I'll respond in English if you don't mind. Thanks for the welcome. Some of my concerns remain, about spending disproportionate time compared to the useful results, particularly as regards getting into conversations on talk pages where the language gets difficult and I spend ages composing something in Welsh that only very indirectly ends up affecting the content of any articles. I would still like in principle to improve the science articles because I do actually know some science, but my Welsh just isn't good enough. I will tinker a little, but am cautious about promising too much, particularly as I do have to watch the total time spent. I still want to improve my Welsh, but may more often be reading the BBC's Welsh news site than on Wicipedia - though the other day I read through all the top stories in Welsh, and almost every article was either about crime, accidents or about job losses - and today, more of the same, how depressing.

Depressing indeed, maybe that's why I just "keep an eye" on the news these days rather than following events closely as I used to.

Hi, i have visited your wiki and found not localized messages in the sidebar. Perhaps you could change this:

  • First you have to create MediaWici:cafe with content "Y Caffi" (of course not quoted) This would be the local message as shown at the moment
  • create MediaWici:cafe/en with content "Café" (german translation would be the same as en and en ist fallback for de, so there is no need to create a special message for de)
  • then change in MediaWici:Sidebar the line "Wicipedia:Y Caffi|Y Caffi" to "Wicipedia:Y Caffi|cafe"

If you would like check if you changes are successful, you have to use https. This is because of a heavy cache function at http-squids. cy en de Merlissimo 23:11, 23 Medi 2009 (UTC)Reply[Ateb]
