Interwiki table maintenance

Are you running some kind of script to validate the interwiki configuration? If so, it would be nice to post the code publicly, as long as the license is at least as Free as the rest of the wiki. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 00:47, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

It's not scripted. I'm just following a random IW link and seeing if it responds. (And now that you're aware of this project, I can RCC what I've done so far.) --Tepples (talk) 00:52, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
It doesn't look like you've RCC'd anything yet. Should I do so myself? I assume that RCC of interwiki maintenance should be subject to the same 24-hour delay as RCC of spam posts; does this make sense? --Eighty5cacao (talk) 04:03, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
I did RCC some from about a day before my last reply, those before your "headscratcher hooks" edits. But go ahead and apply the same rule. --Tepples (talk) 19:07, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

index.php?diff= gives internal error on user scripts and stylesheets

For example, Special:Diff/15702 (which redirects to, an edit to User:Eighty5cacao/common.js) and Special:Diff/15139 (which redirects to, an edit to User:Eighty5cacao/common.css) show:

MediaWiki internal error.

Exception caught inside exception handler.

Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information.

The longer URLs for the same edits, and, work fine.

Special:Diff/15754, an edit to App Store Review Guidelines, works fine. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 00:52, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Can you get it to happen for any pages that aren't user CSS or user JS? If not, it's probably the same problem as User talk:Tepples/Archive 7#Extensions causing problems with user script and stylesheet pages?. When I get a chance to use the computer on which LocalSettings.php is maintained, I'll try to find time to disable TwitterCards on all diff pages. --Tepples (talk) 18:17, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
The answer as of now to the question in your first sentence is no. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 01:11, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

I have just confirmed that this is still an issue. What are your plans as of now? --Eighty5cacao (talk) 22:32, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

I have excluded TwitterCards from pageviews containing a nonempty diff query parameter. But for anything more substantial, I'll first need to dig up which computer has my hosting provider credentials so I can upgrade PHP from 5.6 to 7.x and then upgrade MediaWiki to latest stable. --Tepples (talk) 02:09, 17 August 2018 (UTC)

NESdev issues, March 2018

RPG assets by Chasersgaming

The link from this thread that you posted here needs to be fixed to point to (determined by carefully examining Chasersgaming's full list of projects for those that specifically mention NES).

The original link currently returns 404 with what looks like a standard error page; please let me know if I need to describe the symptom in more detail. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 05:31, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Both the old link and the new link work for me at the moment. Thank you for suggesting an addition to nesdev:Placeholder graphics. --Tepples (talk) 15:06, 4 March 2018 (UTC)
I can confirm that the old link now works for me as well. Sorry to bother you for what could have been a temporary problem. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 23:02, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

The end of Recent Changes Cleanup

I seek to upgrade to MediaWiki 1.30 until such time as I can switch my hosting to PHP 7. But mediawikiwiki:Extension:Recent Changes Cleanup states that the extension is no longer maintained, and the archived version states that the extension no longer works with any supported version of MediaWiki. This means RCC will cease to be available on this wiki sometime between now and the end of August. --Tepples (talk) 02:55, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Make that now. Welcome to MediaWiki 1.30. --Tepples (talk) 03:40, 18 August 2018 (UTC)
I apologize for the rude edit summaries and for not reading this sooner. I had been away from my computer for a little over a day and only found out the upgrade had been performed for other reasons.
How does this affect the project-scope policy concerns that led to the original use of RCC? I guess that edits to user scripts and stylesheets never really needed to be hidden in the first place, but the more pressing concern is my WMG materials.
I was planning to register on All The Tropes in the near future anyway; I am willing to move my WMG content there, but I cannot promise any particular timescale, especially because my activity is likely to be erratic for a month or more due to real life.
The quick but heavy-handed fix would be to flag my account as a bot until such time as either I complete any migration of content or we find an alternative MediaWiki extension of similar utility. --Eighty5cacao (talk) 06:24, 20 August 2018 (UTC)
