Hey, the revdel script is not allowing me to select diffs. This is happening across all articles. I have tried to bypass my cache. I have also tried Safari and Chrome and see no applicable errors in console. I have also turned all of my other scripts off to test for interactions. 19:03, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

Filter Pending AfC Submissions for untagged ones[edit]

Hi! Could you add a filter for Pending AfC Submissions to only show untagged ones (no WikiProjects), so one would have easier time going through the list specifically for tagging them for other to find later. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 09:19, 6 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hellknowz, I think your idea is good, but I'm a bit worried (rationally or not :p) about cluttering up the interface. Would User:SD0001/draft-sort-burst possibly work as an alternative? Let me know if you still want this to be added, and I might make a toollabs:yabbr mode for this or something. (Or just add the checkbox.) Enterprisey (talk!) 21:11, 21 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Oh cool, I didn't know burst-sort script existed. I tried it and it looks good. Unfortunately, it lacks the features of bigger scripts like Rater, such as task force tagging or special parameters like "living" for bios. Talk page is also not necessarily empty for untagged drafts. In short, I would prefer to use a different script for tagging. But it's totally on point otherwise. May be a link to the script could be added at the bottom?
Anyway, my own reasoning for having a checkbox in the main list is that I can't find topics by name that I am interested in and know enough about to review after I ran out of tagged pages for relevant projects. The time it takes to find an AfC I can review is almost more than reviewing itself. I can see when something is yet another bio or village in India and skip it. But I can also guess that "Space Cadet 3000" is likely a video game. Random tagging isn't really appealing to me and often I have no idea what project(s) something belongs to.
I think the UI can easily support more checkboxes and such. Editors who review AfCs are not new to Wikipedia. I imagine people using Labs tools for this are used to software tools. Given the number of AfCs, I think any filtering to accommodate more specific reviewing is good. Even if it's hidden by default behind a foldout or something.
On a relevant note, I am planning to add AfCs to article alerts, and properly-tagged banners is a requirement to have the pages reported. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 09:03, 22 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Looks great! Now if only the detection was always correct :) A bunch of pages listed as untagged actually have project banners. For example, Draft talk:Agritask, Draft talk:UFC Now, Draft talk:Corey Arnold, Draft talk:Musa Arfakiana, etc. I couldn't find any pattern of why they aren't detected when I was looking through the list before. —  HELLKNOWZ   ▎TALK 12:52, 27 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Hellknowz, the tool uses User:Enterprisey/ibx-wproj-map.js as the way to determine which banners and infoboxes are owned by which projects, so if a project isn't in there the tool won't know about it. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:04, 27 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Why not just look for which templates are on the page, and follow any directs, and see if the string WikiProject appears in them? Wouldn't work for the non-standard ones like {{maths rating}}, but it would work for >99% of the rest. Your list could then be a backup/failsafe for the cornercases. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 01:06, 28 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I know of five WikiProject banners that don't have the word WikiProject in their template names: {{Alphabet Task Force}}; {{Maths banner}}; {{Wikipedia Help Project}}; {{Women's Classical Committee}}; and {{WP1.0}} - there may be others. Whatever their publically-facing name, most WikiProject banners have {{WPBannerMeta}} as the second (or third, if it's a wrapper like {{WikiProject Mississippi}}) layer inward - I know of four that don't, these are listed at Template:WPBannerMeta/Conversion. Note that the maths people have two distinct banners, one for articles only and one for everything else. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 11:55, 28 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Query re Articles you contributed to have been nominated for Did You Know[edit]

Hi, re this edit - why were Whispyhistory (talk · contribs) and Philafrenzy (talk · contribs) not also informed? They were informed about other DYKs in the same bot run (Philafrenzy, Whispyhistory), and Template:Did you know nominations/Challacombe scale names both of them before myself. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:47, 27 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Will investigate. Off the top of my head, if the bot thinks their talk pages already link to the article or nomination page, or if they were notified in the past, no notification will be sent. (Probably doesn't apply here, though.) Enterprisey (talk!) 23:06, 27 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

RM Stats tool broken?[edit]

It seems like when I try to do any lookup at I get a 500 error (or sometimes a blank 200 response, then a 500 on subsequent refreshes). I poked around the logs at /data/project/rm-stats but didn't see any obvious explanation - actually I didn't see any log entries since May 2019, which is weird. Anyways, just thought I'd let you know.

Also, I noticed your tool because I was looking for my own tool ( in a directory, and realized I had accidentally semi-plagiarized another tool's name. If that's a problem for you, let me know, and I can look into renaming my tool to something that's less likely to get confused with yours. Colin M (talk) 17:39, 29 July 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

About WP:DEFCON tagging[edit]

Heya Enterprisey! I've looked more into IFTTT's "New edit with hashtag" feature, and I'm under the impression that it looks for literal hashtags in the edit summary, as looks for edits with hashtags in the edit summary, and as WP:HASHTAG explains. It'd be a great help if you could add hashtags, like #DEFCON1, to Enterprisey's edit summary on WP:DEFCON, so I could make a notification using IFTTT.

AFD stats[edit]

Right now the AFD stats page for me outputs "The remaining 133 pages had no discernible vote by this user." but does not indicate which pages those are. Could a list of pages be added which were processed but for which the bot said "nope, don't see anything cool here"? And/or a list of specific edits made in each. Could be a "see this other page for additional details" kind of thing, kind of like how xtools works. --Izno (talk) 18:43, 5 August 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Welcome bot[edit]

Hello, Enterprisey! :)

I'm an admin at the Albanian Wikipedia and I tend to look after the technical side of the project. Recently I've been trying to find how to make a welcoming bot but instead I found many pages of past discussions about how that idea is kind of despised in the EnWiki community. I've read most of them and I know how the Welcoming Community here does the job better than bots and I really value you for that. Unfortunately we don't have that many of active users in our community and the advantages of having a welcoming bot far outweigh the disadvantages of it. We'd like a bot to be able to use the WikiLove extension to give out the welcoming template from it on new users' pages. As I mentioned early, we're a small community and I didn't have anyone to ask for advice on my homewiki about it so i tried asking at the EnWiki. I saw your username at the Bot Approvals Group and thought I'd give it a try. Can you help me with this situation? I should mention that I've never created or helped create a bot before so I'm not very informed on the subject but I'm willing to do what I can to help. - Klein Muçi (talk) 22:55, 10 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

While I'm at it, a simple suggestion. Much like User:Enterprisey/sync-template-sandbox, how about a script that merges the sandbox back into the main after testing is finished? I find that I do that quite often when responding to {{edit template-protected}}. Best regards. --Muhandes (talk) 09:25, 8 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Muhandes, good idea! I'm wondering what sort of confirmation you'd want for this - I know that I certainly wouldn't want to accidentally overwrite a highly-used template this way. Maybe just the usual popup "confirm" box? Enterprisey (talk!) 16:13, 14 October 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AFD Stats[edit]

I've been going through and trying to clear up the UNDETERMINED lines from my AfD stats, and I have a couple of suggestions for that would've cleared up most of them (and undoubtably also clear up many more discussions I wasn't involved in):

  • Change lines 325 and 364 from "speedy delete" to "speedy delet" to correctly parse the phrase "speedy deletion"
  • Change the regex in line 348 to "The result (?:of the debate )?was(?:.*?\n?.*?)(?:'{3}?)(.*?)(?:'{3}?)" (or something like that, regexes aren't my strong point) to catch the many pages where there is a carriage return before the bolded decision.

Possible issue with AFCH script[edit]

When I used AFCH to review Draft:Canary Connect Inc., it seems that the review notification went to DESiegel, who just helped the new editor submit the article by subst'ing the template, rather than the author of the draft. ([7]). Is it possible the script could be improved so that the notification goes to the author, rather than just someone helping them submit to AfC?

About the AfD stats tool[edit]

Also ping User:Σ. I used [8] (awesome, thanks), but there is one element I find problematic. I often nominate things for deletion, but I am totally fine with merge outcome. Yet the tool treats 'merge' just as 'keep', they are both colored red (for a deletion proposal). From my perspective, this is incorrect. Sometimes nominators, including myself, will even say that merge is one of the alternatives to consider in our nominations. The point is that the current stats suggest that for example AfDs I nominated closed as merge are 'failures' just as those closed as keeps. I'd argue that they should be considered successes, green, or at the very least get their own color and should not be counted together with other groups. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:46, 14 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pet Scan and Cat-a-lot[edit]

Just to follow up from our brief discussion a couple of weeks ago in Boston, regarding interaction between Pet Scan and Cat-a-lot, or rather the lack thereof (in case you're interested in tinkering with it). The problem I'm having can be seen here. I just created the Wikiquote category for Guggenheim Fellows, and Pet Scan will tell me that there are 580 English Wikipedia articles in the same category, which also have corresponding Wikiquote articles. Problem is, to reconcile them, I've got to manually open all 580 Wikiquote articles and add Category:Guggenheim Fellows.

All told, there is probably easily upward of a million edits that need to be performed to reconcile the categorization of the English Wikipedia and the English Wikiquote, which obviously is just impossible to do manually. But if I could use Cat-a-lot, and just highlight all 580 articles in the Pet Scan output, and add categories with semi-automation, it could be done fairly easily. Been asking around for about a year now, and AFAIK, there is no current way to do this. GMGtalk 16:43, 19 November 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Hey, Enterprisey. I was going over your dashboard and decided to poach one of your script ideas. You can cross this one off the list:

  • A user script so that whenever you click on a "hist" link in a user contribs page, the resulting page history highlights all contributions by that user (also has form on history page to perform such highlighting)

Hope you don't mind. If you're interested, here's the source. Also I suck at names. Regards, GUYWAN ( t · c ) 21:17, 2 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AFCRHS.js (2)[edit]

Hello. When creating the talk pages for created redirects in non-article space, the script does not create the talk page as the script only appends "Talk:" before the requested title (e.g. this would mean "Talk:Template:" which is a bad title).

EnterpriseyBot 10[edit]

I think there's an issue with this task. There are redirects that I tagged with {{R from related topic}} in 2017 whose talk pages are still marked as stubs, e.g., Green syndicalism (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). Let me know what I can do to help? (Last discussion, for reference) czar 08:28, 1 January 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi @Enterprisey, should I bring this task back to the bot requests board? Between this thread and the last one, it appears that this has been running with issues for a very long time.

If you don't have time to look into/maintain this task, please just let me know so I can find another way to address it. czar 15:04, 1 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
As a side note, I have found that this is too big a task for Python (or, at least, I'm not good enough at handling lots of data in Python). So, I'll be rewriting the bot in Rust shortly, after which it should be back to running regularly. Enterprisey (talk!) 08:26, 6 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Czar, the bot has been running for the past couple of days and everything looks fine. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:06, 17 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Also, how should the bot behave when a project's banner isn't configured to auto-assess? Right now, I've been manually reverting the bot's edits. Enterprisey (talk!) 23:10, 17 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nice—looking forward to it ramping up! For context on that last question, is the idea that the task finds redirects and strips the WikiProject banner class as a courtesy but some banners are not equipped to auto-assess? In those cases, I've traditionally considered it better to have no class param than to leave "stub" or whatever was left behind (since the article is no longer a stub but a redirect). But most often those are cases of the WikiProject not handling the "Redirect" class in their banner, not that it has auto-assess off altogether. If indeed it's a matter of specific banners not supporting auto-assessment, I imagine the most complete way to handle is to hard-code "Redirect" as the banner class param, but that strikes me as overkill when simply removing the param is sufficient. czar 03:40, 18 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Any WikiProject banner that is built around {{WPBannerMeta}} (and there are only four that are not) will, if |class= is blank or absent, auto-assess the talk page of a redirect as Redirect-Class; and if the banner concerned isn't set up for that, will instead use NA-Class. The autodetection is built into {{Class mask}}, as is the conversion to NA where applicable.
Of the four WikiProject banners that aren't built around {{WPBannerMeta}}, only {{WikiProject U.S. Roads}} will behave like a "normal" WikiProject banner (because it also uses {{class mask}}); the other three don't autodetect, and only treat the page as Redirect-Class if fed an explicit |class=redirect, not the shorter forms |class=redir or |class=red that other banners allow.
In summary: for {{WikiProject Anime and manga}}, {{Maths rating}} and {{WikiProject Military history}} (and redirects to those three), set |class=redirect; for any other banner, leave |class= blank or omit it entirely. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:31, 18 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Redrose64, thank you for the information! What about {{WikiProject Ships}}, which doesn't autoassess despite using WPBannerMeta? Are there any other WPBannerMeta banners that won't auto-assess in this way? Enterprisey (talk!) 20:51, 18 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ooof, I missed that one. Ships uses WPBannerMeta but, for some reason, bypasses the standard {{class mask}} template by using a very non-standard custom class mask, {{WikiProject Ships/class}}, which unlike other custom class masks (such as {{WikiProject Trains/class}}), is not built as a wrapper for {{class mask}}. So {{WikiProject Ships}} will require an explicit |class=red, |class=redir or |class=redirect. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 21:26, 18 April 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Redrose64, reading Template:WPBannerMeta/Conversion, it looks like Maths rating and Anime and manga were converted, so that just leaves Milhist? Enterprisey (talk!) 07:53, 23 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Bot Question[edit]

Hi Enterprisey,

I saw your name listed at WP:BAG as being open to answering queries about bots.

I just made this edit to the carnitine article. The prefixes L- and d- are used as part of chemical naming for enantiomers of amino acids, sugars, and various other compounds. The convention in naming is that they appear as small caps rather than as full size letters, sometimes also in parentheses (ie as (l-proline or d-proline for the amino acid proline). We similarly have the convention of italicising E, Z, R, and S in names like (E)-stilbene or (Z)-Stilbene or for names like (R)-thalidomide and (S)-thalidomide in the thalidomide article. There are also name fragments like fac, mer, cis, and trans that are italicised when stand alone. The letters don't necessarily stand alone – for example, meso-tartaric acid is (2R,3S)-tartaric acid or (2R,3S)-2,3-dihydroxybutanedioic acid.

My questions (as a chemist who knows almost nothing about how to program a bot, although who did do programming 20+ years ago):

  1. Would it be possible and practical for a bot to go through article space and change all the L- and D- to {{sm|l}}- and {{sm|d}}- without changing the cases where it is not part of a name (like this mistaken change that I made to a file name), while handling names like acetyl-L-carnitine becoming acetyl-l-carnitine, recognising that a wikilink like [[Glycine propionyl-L-carnitine]] becomes [[Glycine propionyl-L-carnitine|Glycine propionyl-{{sm|L}}-carnitine]], recognising the change in case for the start of a sentence (L-proline ... should be l-Proline ...) and while changing names in references byt not producing the reference errors that I just did?
  2. Is there a bot that already does this sort of thing, to your knowledge?
  3. If it is practicable, could it be extended to other naming corrections like the ones mentioned above?
  4. Is there another editor who I would be advised to ask / speak with?

I can give a list of examples (in cooperation with the Chemistry and / or Chemicals WikiProjects) if that would help, but I thought a general question was best first.

Thanks for your time!

Hi, Enterprisey, I am WikiAviator. Today, I've voted for numerous AfD discussions such as [9]. However, it didn't show up on AfD Stats.

Hey again, sorry for not checking carefully. It now get everything in English but sequence is not right. For eg.

Per [[:en:wikipedia:Special:Permalink/951634818|request on enwiki]] (simple) => Per request on enwiki (simple)

but it should be

Per [[:wikipedia:en:Special:Permalink/951634818|request on enwiki]] (simple) => Per request on enwiki (simple)

Now sequence is right but having wikipedia in the link makes it not work correctly, only w works.

Per [[:w:en:Special:Permalink/951634818|request on enwiki]] (simple) => Per request on enwiki (simple)

Also on metawiki it is generating

per [[:meta:meta:Special:Permalink/19993099|request]] => per request

CustomSummaryPresets as a gadget[edit]

Hi Enterprisey,

I am trying to port your script to as a gadget (due credit to be added), but there is a small issue I would very much like to overcome. What I am trying to do is to add two separate gadgets, one for the actual script and one for a default list of preset summaries, which the user will be able to disable and use their own custom summaries instead on their own common.js file. The issue is, the summary dropdown does show up but without the summaries, unless you add them to your own common.js file. I was wondering if you could suggest a way of solving this.

Links-in-logs script design[edit]

Hey Enterprisey,

I hope you're doing well. First, I wanted to say that I love your Links-in-logs user script. It is curious to me that MediaWiki includes built-in permalinks to revisions of pages, but not to specific log entries. When trying to link to a specific log entry, and with Special:Redirect relying on the log ID, it makes it extremely difficult to try and ascertain what the log ID of a specific log action is. Your script does this beautifully and glitch-free. I daresay this might easily be your best user script.

That being said, I'm wondering if you might tweak the functionality a little bit to the way in which it handles the link address cross-wiki and, in particular, on other wikis which often have the Wikimedia projects linked in Special:Interwiki. For example, on the Miraheze wikis, looking at Special:Log for Public Test Wiki, I have the script installed in my global.js file calling your script located on English Wikipedia using the mw.loader.load function. However, when I click on the log entry link with your script installed, it appears as this URL (directly pasted from "copy link address"). I realize I could export and import your script locally there, but I'm trying to avoid that as this makes it simpler for when you push through any updates. I think the issue is with the script calling both wgServer and wgScriptPath when it's called cross-wiki and/or globally. It seems like there should be a fairly easy fix for this and, with only 27 transclusions of this script, little worry of breaking things for (too many) users. Alternatively, if you wanted to fork this script as a sandbox version, I could test it on other wikis and English Wikipedia and let you know.

Dmehus (talk) 19:06, 26 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Dmehus, thanks for letting me know about this issue. I'm not immediately sure what change I need to make to the script - should I be using only one of those two variables, or should I be doing an additional check for the script being called cross-wiki? A sandbox version would probably help. Enterprisey (talk!) 07:13, 30 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Enterprisey, Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I initially thought it might be a problem with both those variables being called for and if the solution might be to remove one of them. I know very little, or next to no, JavaScript, so am just going from what I know about HTML/CSS and very basic PHP, so will have to defer to your expertise and judgment. However, while my programming experience is quite limited, I have experience testing and troubleshooting. I have since tried a couple things, to rule out whether it was an issue with my CSS/JS file. First, I noticed my externally loaded scripts included the https:// protocol prefix, but I have seen other users' externally loaded scripts, and a MediaWiki help documentation somewhere, use only // as the prefix, so I first made that change. Second, having recently confirmed five of my user scripts worked in my global.js file on the Miraheze wiki farm, I wanted to test whether it was a local issue on Miraheze, so I migrated those user scripts that I had confirmed were error-free cross-wiki to my global.js file on Meta Wiki (Wikimedia). No problems there, and the logs-in-links worked across Wikimedia.
I'm not sure what you had in mind after checking if the script is being called for cross-wiki, so can't really comment there, but seeing as it seems to work globally on Wikimedia, I tend to think it's a problem with (one of) those variables (I'm much less confident that it is a local Miraheze configuration issue, since I do have those English Wikipedia user scripts being called remotely using the same method). I think an additional check to determine if the script is being called for on a server other than Wikimedia or Wikipedia couldn't hurt. What would be interesting is to try testing this on the Beta Cluster servers, maybe, since that uses a different domain? That way, we could determine if an additional check is required (i.e., if the user is on Wikimedia's production servers and/or beta servers returns as true, then it could use the normal scripting; otherwise, an alternative would be used). Feel free to setup a sandbox version and {{ping}} me with the location to try it out. Dmehus (talk) 09:21, 30 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Imported my Meta Wiki (Wikimedia) global.js file to my Meta Wiki (Beta Cluster) global.js file, and confirmed the same error as on Miraheze's wiki farm. Since there's no problem with both those variables on the production Wikimedia servers, there's probably no harm in leaving that code as is, but it seems to be a problem with the server name being called for twice, essentially, by (one of) those server configuration variables and by the full path name in the user's script file. So, perhaps a check if it's being called for by a non-Wikimedia production server is best, and then it's a matter of taking out one of those variables. My "hunch" says take out wgServer, but again, with my limited JavaScript knowledge, that's really all it is, though it does seem logical. Dmehus (talk) 09:41, 30 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Enterprisey: I'm just following up with you to see if you had a chance to test my hypothesis yet on the problem of your links-in-logs user script not working on the Beta Cluster and non-Wikimedia wikis. Look forward to hearing from you when you get a chance. Dmehus (talk) 01:19, 11 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, can you add a possibility to add other WikiProject banners to the talk pages besides the AFC banners and mark them as redirect? Just a suggestion, of course you don't have to do that. --TheImaCow (talk) 18:32, 23 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Most WikiProject banners don't need an explicit |class=redirect, it's autodetected as either Redirect-Class (if the banner allows that) or NA-Class (if it doesn't). There are only a small number of WikiProject banners that won't autodetect a redir correctly (or at all):
  • {{WikiProject Anime and manga}} needs an explicit |class=redirect
  • {{Maths rating}} needs an explicit |class=redirect
  • {{WikiProject Military history}} needs either |class=red or |class=redirect - note that |class=redir doesn't work
  • {{WikiProject Ships}} needs either |class=red, |class=redir or |class=redirect
  • {{WikiProject U.S. Roads}} needs either |class=redir or |class=redirect. This one will autodetect, and also recognises |class=red, but for those two situations it gets the importance wrong (as well as a a few other things) so it's best to use an explicit |class=redirect for this one too.
I recently fixed {{WikiProject Aviation}} so that it autodetects - it already allowed the three variations on |class=redirect. At this stage I don't know of any others with non-standard behaviour. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 23:22, 23 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

unblock-review.js doesn't work well with autoblocks[edit]

When User:Enterprisey/unblock-review.js is used on an {{unblock-auto}} request, it doesn't work well. See Special:Diff/973555329 for an example. Three problems are apparent:

  1. It used {{unblock reviewed}} instead of {{unblock-auto reviewed}}
  2. It showed the blocking admin's name as the request reason, and threw away the rest of the original information
  3. It caused the page to end up in Category:Pages using duplicate arguments in template calls (cleaning out this category is what led me to notice this problem)

@ArnabSaha, probably fixed. Enterprisey (talk!) 04:00, 2 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hello, Enterprisey. I have a question along similar lines. I'm concerned that manually editing my status page (TBD) will artificially boost my edit count. Does your .js or another user's .js status changer alter the status directly in a way that doesn't get recorded as a user edit, as far as my account is concerned?

I would also like to share some ideas. Rather than having online, offline, and sleeping cluttering the top row, to instead just have a Status link to the user's /status subpage. There on the subpage, they can have a table of individual buttons for all of the status options available between <noinclude> tags. Clicking a button will update their status to the button they clicked, preferably without recording it as a user edit... but if they have to edit the page anyway, they might as well have the status table transcluded without it being detectable by {{UserStatus}} or {{UserStatusShort}}.

Finally, have I read correctly that a user can manually change their status directly from the template, or the prefix to the status? What I mean is, it might be fun to allure to A Charlie Brown Christmas using something like {{UserStatusShort|name=REAL}}, and the User:{{ROOTPAGENAME}}/status page being IN
— CJDOS, Sheridan, OR (talk) 03:53, 4 August 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@CJDOS, you would need to make a new account and run the script from there to make the edits show up on that account. For making the buttons only show up on your status page, you can write if(mw.config.get("wgPageName") === "the_title_of_your_status_page_with_underscores") in front of the line that mentions StatusChanger.js. And from the template documentation, it seems that you may set the demo parameter, like {{UserStatusShort|demo=sleeping}}, to change your status directly from the template, if I understand the question correctly. Enterprisey (talk!) 04:04, 2 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
An alternative account, cross-linked and labeled for the purpose per WP:ALTACCN. The alternative account taking the edit count from changing the status of my primary account. That's not a bad idea; I might just do that. Thank you for the suggestion, Enterprisey. How does it work regarding signing in? Would I have to sign into each account separately, i.e. if I wanted to edit using my primary account and have the status show that I'm online, would I also have to manually sign into my alternative account as well to edit my primary account's status? I suppose I could do it without signing in an alternative account, but IP addresses may be shared, and I'd rather not edit with an IP address. — CJDOS, Sheridan, OR (talk) 08:09, 2 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

If I've understood you correctly about my previous 3rd question, {{UserStatusShort|demo=REAL&nbsp;IN}} REAL IN.

I mean, I assume that the demo= parameter will default to File:Symbol neutral vote.svg and gray text when given a status it's not setup for. This is why I was asking about the name= parameter of Template:UserStatus (misattributed to UserStatusShort).

AfD stats and redirects[edit]

Forgive me if we discussed this before - but still lists 'redirect' verdict in 'green' as kept. I think this is wrong - redirects should be counted as deletion. On the other hand, 'merge' is counted as 'deletion', despite being more inclusive. I'd suggest counting 'merge' with 'no consensus' or in its own, separate section. PS.

cv-revdel causing issues on new Vector[edit]

A screenshot of new Vector - the search bar is higher than normal, and an extra search button is visible.
An example of the issue.

Hey! It seems like cv-revdel is causing some visual issues on new Vector - there's an extra "search" button and a lot of the padding is broken, causing the search bar to move up. I've confimed that this occurs on Firefox and Chrome, and have attached an example screenshot. Thanks! Remagoxer (talk) 18:45, 7 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Update: seems to be caused by this line - disabling the declaration removes the extra search button and fixes the padding issues. Remagoxer (talk) 20:20, 13 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WP:PRESERVE example[edit]

Hi Enterprisey! Following up from our WCNA discussion, this thread is a good example of how WP:PRESERVE isn't always followed. I'm increasingly coming around to the view that we ought to get rid of the PROD system entirely. I don't know when the last big discussion on PRODding was, but it might be time for another. Coupling the deprecation with some way to make it easier for obviously deletable articles to go through AfD might help with getting consensus.

Section link JS userscript[edit]

Hi. Thanks for the script. Would you consider updating the script with autoClose: true in the PopupWidget params? Also, the current version doesn't update the text-to-copy if a second popup is enabled and will still have the first text in the copy span. It's probably because it's var instead of let and is thus popup === null is only valid for the first popup. I've removed the entire if-else for popup and it seems to work fine. This also removes the need for var popup = null and you can put let popup = new OO.ui.PopupWidget. Here's my diffs: Special:Diff/1050085717 with autoClose set to true. — DaxServer (talk to me) 18:18, 15 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

New vector script bug reports[edit]

Hi Enterprisey. I'm one of the heretics people who use the new vector skin and a big fan of your scripts; I noticed that two of them have incompatibilities with NV:

  • It appears that User:Enterprisey/search-shortcuts.js doesn't work with the New Vector skin (presumably because of the new search bar)
  • On high zoom levels (~140%), User:Enterprisey/superjump.js draws the leftmost part of the pop-up box "under" the left sidebar. My laptop has a pretty small screen though, so I suspect I'm one of very few people to ever run into this issue

I thought I'd drop a note here in case it's an easy fix (though the easiest one would probably be for me to just move back to old vector ). Best, --Blablubbs (talk) 11:29, 31 October 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question about User:EnterpriseyBot Task 10[edit]

Hello Enterprisey! I had a quick question about this bot, specifically related to task 10. It removes the class parameter for redirects, but it also leaves in the importance parameter. I was wondering if there was a particular reason for this decision or if it could be changed to remove both parameters. I have never seen a project that commonly assigns importance ratings to redirects and was curious if there was a reason for keeping them in. Thanks!

Hi Enterprisey,
According to WP:MOSTIMPORTED, the afch-dev is being imported by 23 users.

mw.loader.using(['mediawiki.api', 'user.options']).then(function() {
    if (!mw.user.options.get('gadget-afchelper')) {

Hello Enterprisey! I hope you are well and know that you are busy. But the matter seems serious. I exported and localized your script installer on Bengali Wikipedia. Now I have proposed to transfer it to gadget.

One Wikipedian commented that, the script installs with importScript, which is not smooth on mobile and desktop. While reading the script I saw case 0 using importscript and case 1/2 using mw.loader.load. Does it have a special cause or rationale? Or if I use Case 1 by default in the script, will there be a problem? Because, our template installs Case 1.

AfD Stats - weird username[edit]

Is there any way to use the AfD Stats tool with usernames that contain reserved characters - for example 7&6=thirteen ? HighKing++ 08:53, 7 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I suspect that the bot is able to work out which AfD pages link to a given user page, but is not able to identify the individual !votes. This may be because it is unable to parse the signature. Here's a sample: 7&6=thirteen () - this contains the invalid attribute style="text-shadow:#396 0.2em 0.2em 0.5em; class=texhtml" which should be two attributes, either style="text-shadow:#396 0.2em 0.2em 0.5em;" class=texhtml or style="text-shadow:#396 0.2em 0.2em 0.5em;" class="texhtml". Notice also the three instances of a character entity for the ampersand in 7&amp;6=thirteen, this may also cause problems for the bot. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:54, 7 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Commenting out Redirect-Class[edit]

Commenting out Redirect class in {{WikiProject U.S. Roads}} has the side effect of adding NA-Class importance ratings. That banner template is designed to always have article assessments explicitly stated, so removing them by bot breaks things a bit. Imzadi 1979  12:37, 23 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On this revision, the banner doesn't know that it's a redirect, so it flags the page as needed a KML file, needing a map, etc. and reverts to NA-Class for importance, but when the class assessment is explicitly noted, as in this revision, the banner correctly handles everything. Imzadi 1979  12:41, 23 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Imzadi1979 I see, thanks. Is there a way the banner template could be changed for automatic classification? Above and at Template:WikiProject U.S. Roads/class#Classification of redirects, I get the impression that the automatic classification should be happening. Enterprisey (talk!) 05:43, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It appears that the template doc at Template:WikiProject U.S. Roads/class#Classification of redirects is out of synch with how the template actually behaves. Most WikiProject banners do indeed do that, but there are two banners which recognise Redirect-Class but still do not autodetect, this is one and Milhist is the other. This is primarily because they are the only two WikiProject banners that have not yet been converted to use {{WPBannerMeta}}. There is a proposal to alter U.S. Roads to use WPBannerMeta, and it's been sandboxed, but as yet there is no consensus to alter it. If approved, autodetection will then occur. The conversion proposal has been around for more than thirteen years, see for instance Template talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Archive 1#photo parameter proposal, Template talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Archive 1#WPBannerMeta?, and Wikipedia talk:WikiProject U.S. Roads/Archive 25#Banner testing. Notifying MSGJ and Imzadi1979, not sure who else would be appropriate. --Redrose64 🦌 (talk) 09:29, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Enterprisey, Redrose64: If |class=redirect is not specified on a redirect, as on this revision, it will detect the redirect and apply Redirect-Class, as I already noted above.
The trouble is that the banner is built to track compliance with various project standards in articles. To that end, on an article, we need to note a value for |needs-map= and |needs-jctint=. There is also |needs-KML=, but that is optional because the banner can check to see if the KML file exists at the correct name based on thee article title.
Files, redirects, dabs and the like don't need these items, so when |class=redirect is specified, the banner bypasses the requirement for it. If you look at the referenced revision produced when the bot removed the class assessment, now the banner has "This article has been identified as having the following issues:", and the collapsed section says that it doesn't know the article eras a hard-coded junction list, that it doesn't know if the article has a map, and that the article has is missing a KML. The banner also defaults to NA-importance.
When I reinstated the explicit assessment in this revision, the unneeded importance and the article issues disappear.
There are similar issues related to importance with {{WikiProject Highways}}, so this isn't related to {{WPBannerMeta}}, but rather in how banners expect to be used. Imzadi 1979  22:11, 27 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Most WikiProject banners simply have
as a pass-through parameter to WPBannerMeta. Highways instead has the non-standard code
which will force any page where the |class= param is either blank or omitted, and the |importance= param is entirely omitted, to be treated as Mid-Importance. I don't think that's a desirable default. --Redrose64 🦌 (talk) 00:06, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree with Redrose. Hmm. @Imzadi1979, could we use Module:Redirect#IsRedirect to set needs-map and needs-jctint to "no", and importance to NA, for redirects? Enterprisey (talk!) 06:38, 28 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Restating from archive here, from several years ago: "Hi, I am a fan of the wp:AFDSTATS tool (i understand it was developed by User:Scottywong and maintained by you and User:Σ), however I have a potentially easy-to-implement suggestion about ordering the outcomes for visual clarity about an editor's conformance with prevailing views. Ordering the matrix rows and columns as SK, K, M, U, NC, T, R, D, SD, instead of the current random-like order, would make perfectly conforming performance appear on the diagonal, and it will be visually more clear when a voter's tallies are far off (off-diagonal). Merge is closer to Keep because it agrees there is some material worth keeping somewhere, and similarly for Userfy/Draftify. No consensus is properly in the middle. Redirect is closer to Delete as it asserts there's nothing worth merging. T for Transwiki is rare but is useful to keep as an option to remind us of the possibility, but I put it to the right of middle because it conveys the material is inappropriate for wikipedia, unlike M and U."

Reordering display from SK to SD that way would [still] be a good improvement, methinks.

I don't necessarily disagree with your idea, it would be interesting to see how a reordered matrix changes the visualization. Although, I'm not sure if your proposed change would make as much of a difference as you think. As long as the vertical axis and the horizontal axis list the options in the same order, then you'll see the diagonal light up green for any user whose votes tend to match the eventual consensus. To get that diagonal effect, it doesn't really matter what order things are in as long as they're in the same order vertically and horizontally. However, ordering things in the way that you suggested (essentially on a continuous spectrum from keep to delete) might allow the user to understand deviations from the diagonal more easily. For instance, if an editor tends to be more of an inclusionist, then their matrix might show the green diagonal on the "keep" side of the spectrum, but then gradually veer off the diagonal as you get closer to the delete side. Either way, I haven't touched the original code for this tool in probably a decade, and I don't even know where it's hosted these days, so I probably can't be much help. —⁠ScottyWong⁠— 22:17, 14 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The ol' bot tasks haven't been doing too well lately in general and need a serious once-over. I don't currently have too much daily access to a computer, but once I'm back, I'll put the bot tasks higher on my to-do list. Enterprisey (talk!) 14:59, 5 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Minor thing with[edit]

I've noticed that if I nominate an article for afd [10], and then, during the discussion, !vote for something else (keep, redirect), I will not be "(Nom)" in the stat page Vote-column, like with my latest afd, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Fatma Hatun. It doesn't happen very often, but it happens.

"(Nom (flip-flop))" perhaps? ;-) Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 08:13, 5 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

WP:RFPP/E form broken by CAPTCHA[edit]

Hi Enterprisey, there's an issue with the way MediaWiki:Request-page-protection-form.js currently works: WP:VPT § WP:RFPP/E broken whenever a CAPTCHA is required. Perhaps there's a way to fix this without investing hours of work to get the CAPTCHA transcluded somehow? ~ ToBeFree (talk) 00:09, 24 July 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I see nobody has responded to you. I have a similar question, about whether there is a browser-specific function enablement. I use FireFox and do not see the 'More' element as suggested by the documentation. User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 01:15, 27 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
