Strange layout[edit]

TestWiki's CSS is giving me some heartache. This is what I mean. I've already tried en:WP:BYPASS and multiple browsers, and the problem persists -- but only when I'm logged in (when I'm logged out, it looks fine). Any thoughts? Theopolisme (talk) 15:36, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Bypassing the cache is more like purgeing a page. Try clearing your CSS-or use your global.css stylesheet instead-it will effect EVERY wiki, including this test wikipedia, the other test wikipedia, and the test wikidata. Lemondoge (talk) 15:04, 24 December 2015 (UTC)

Proposal for additional namespaces for Test Wiki[edit]

Should Test Wiki have additional custom namespaces? Please see bugzilla:52528. This, that and the other (talk) 10:41, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

FWIW, the change to add the custom namespaces was merged. Yes check.svg Done I guess. John Vandenberg (talk) 16:10, 7 October 2014 (UTC)

Just out of curiosity[edit]

What the fuck happened to this site? Everything's displaying the names of system messages rather than the system messages themselves. Not that I care that much, this is only the test Wikipedia.

A know issue --@lestaty discuţie 06:17, 7 <april> 2014 (UTC)

Where to opt on this gadget? --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 05:09, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

@Liuxinyu970226: near the bottom of Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets.   — Jeff G. ツ 10:48, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

@Yusuf 506: I'm not sure who is responsible for its implementation here, but you could ask at en:Wikipedia talk:HotCat.   — Jeff G. ツ 13:12, 18 August 2016 (UTC)

Request for sysop flag[edit]

G'day, I cant find where to request this, so ... may I have sysop on this wiki to help development of pywikibot and/or triaging mediawiki bug (e.g. testing bugzilla:32361). Thanks, John Vandenberg (talk) 02:22, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Flow-enabled talk pages for testing?[edit]

I'm working on the Co-op project in this space: Wikipedia:Co-op, and I need a couple of Flow-enabled talk pages for developing User:MatchBot. Who can I talk to to get Flow enabled on Wikipedia:Co-op/Mentor1 and Wikipedia:Co-op/Person1?

In the process of looking for a Flow-enabled test page, I found that Talk:Sandbox gives me the following error: [74d21412] /wiki/Talk:Sandbox Exception from line 61 of /srv/mediawiki/php-1.25wmf7/extensions/Flow/includes/Model/UserTuple.php: User has both id and ip.

I may or may not need those pages, but Talk:Sandbox still gives me the same errors. -Fhocutt (talk) 22:17, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

Material Design[edit]

I would love to see material design on wikipedia. Animations are a very key part of Google's Material Design. Will wikipedia start to use animations in the future (or material design)? I'd be so happy if people were working on it. LasPo rocks (talk) 01:11, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

What do you think Wikipedia is? It is just a website, not an operating system to incorporate material design. SD0001 (talk) 15:37, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

dank interface[edit]

Unsure if this is a testing form or an actual feedback form. Wiki is good either way. Chess (talk) 05:24, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

@Chess: Thank you for your compliment. Whatever form you filled out put it here.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:20, 1 April 2017 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: And a dank response too at 4:20 on April 1. This is quality support. Chess (talk) 02:38, 2 April 2017 (UTC)
@Chess: I didn't plan that, honest. Lunchtime on a Saturday. BTW, it appears the form you filled out was "If you have a minute, please leave us a note." under "Feedback" in the left sidebar.   — Jeff G. ツ 03:37, 2 April 2017 (UTC)

label prueba[edit]

If this a good job! -- Tusca~enwiki280778 (talk) 12:22, 16 November 2015 (UTC)

@Tusca~enwiki280778: Please do not continue here the behaviors that got you indefinitely blocked on English Wikipedia.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:16, 1 April 2017 (UTC)


Are you not supposed to create redirects here? The redirects I've made have been tagged with "creating another annoying redirect". Thanks, --Rubbish computer (talk) 18:17, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

@Rubbish computer: Thanks for asking. That is a new tag in this implementation of MediaWiki, but not in the stable production implementation on English Wikipedia. If introduced on English Wikipedia, I am sure the "annoying" part would draw criticisms of violation of en:WP:NPOV and en:WP:AGF on the part if the implementation team or individual responsible.   — Jeff G. ツ 15:51, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Crashes on Wikipedia alpha for Android[edit]

I'm experiencing crashes when I try to launch the app with my account logged in. So I'm now editing this page as an IP user. The version is 2.1.144-alpha-2016-05-12. You may reply to me on my talk page. Please tell me if this page isn't the right one to report this problem, thanks!-- 09:52, 16 May 2016 (UTC) --Tigerzeng

The problem is solved in the latest version.--Tigerzeng (talk) 14:49, 17 May 2016 (UTC) can't be linked from ?[edit]

At I tried to add as sitelink.

Welcome, Ayman. We use the English language here.   — Jeff G. ツ 15:26, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

A lot of problems[edit]

Navigation popups, I enabled from Preferences not working. The same thing goes for the edit toolbar. In addition; When we click the star to add to watchlist the page, instead of adding to the list of automatically monitoring the page, you will add pages to watchlist the page. Then; Click on one of the icons showing our acknowledgement, directly leads to the notifications. And, I can't see my notification. Yusuf 506 (talk) 15:16, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

My ip blocked[edit]

Please unblock ip —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 08:00, 31 August 2016 (UTC).

This IP isn’t blocked anywhere. Regards --Schniggendiller (talk) 18:08, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
Schniggendiller doesn't exist. So how can we trust things said by such a user? Regards.---Randeerjayasekara (talk) 16:32, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
It’s even worse: My home town doesn’t exist ;-) regards --Schniggendiller (talk) 17:48, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
Very funny. That whole netblock is now blocked.   — Jeff G. ツ 15:07, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Request for Reviewer permissions[edit]

Within the next couple of weeks, Cenarium, an administrator on English Wikipedia, will be testing w:en:WP:Deferred changes on either here or labs, and they will need help from other reviewers to test it. I already have Reviewer rights on English Wikipedia How do I request Reviewer rights here? I looked at Wikipedia:Requests, but that seems to only be for bot and admin permissions. Gestrid (talk) 19:11, 7 December 2016 (UTC)

@Gestrid: Hi, in Test2Wiki you can ask some administrator there for the editor and reviewer rights, here I think they are not granted yes they are not strictly necessary. There you can ask for Murbaut or DCB. Regards.Alvaro Molina (Let's Talk) 19:43, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
@Gestrid: Cenarium granted you that right 20:17, 7 December 2016 (UTC).   — Jeff G. ツ 19:45, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
@Jeff G.: Yeah, I know. I just never commented again here after they got back to me. I've been pretty busy these last few months. Gestrid (talk) 19:55, 31 March 2017 (UTC)

This site gave a lot of knowledge and experience of writing and creating. It is still helping me in my studied from since I was in 7th class. Thank you. Sultan sulaiman mughal (talk) 16:26, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for that information.   — Jeff G. ツ 13:20, 1 April 2017 (UTC)

Amazing Test site, but different from wikimedia default[edit]

I want to thank you for this amazing site for testing wiki featuresm, but actually the editor is different from that on my wikimedia package and also the options on the left are different

thank you —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mostafa 36a2 (talkcontribs) 13:56, 6 February 2017‎ (UTC).

Machine translated from French, that is "Obviously as you knew them I reaffirmed my commitment to follow my efforts or new years which real view for assured my existence". Thank you for that information.   — Jeff G. ツ 19:55, 31 March 2017 (UTC)
