“still used at User:Yair rand/STUFFlist and User:Yair rand/sandbox -- can we fix those first somehow?” —Equinox, 14 June 2021 (Special:Diff/62746955).

As the template is obsolete and deprecated (all subpages have been deleted; uses were converted to {{desc}} and {{desctree}}), I marked it for deletion, however, your subpages are still using it. J3133 (talk) 09:31, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

@J3133: Removed both uses. --Yair rand (talk) 20:08, 20 June 2021 (UTC)

Minor issue with your orangelinks2.jsEdit

Hi. Look at ghost#Verb, the sense that says "To break up with someone without warning or explanation; to perform an act of ghosting." That last linked word uses the l template with an id parameter in order to jump to the correct sense on the target page and highlight it. Your orangelinks2.js makes this link orange (which should mean "entry exists but not in English"), which is incorrect in this case. Equinox 19:41, 7 August 2021 (UTC)

@Equinox: Should be fixed now. (There's a general problem with it recognizing senseids starting with capital letters, distinguished from part of the language name, so I just added "Q followed by any numbers" as a recognizable type of id.) --Yair rand (talk) 08:12, 8 August 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

Hi, Yair some time ago you helped with a edit count list https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Yair_rand/TopMed_2020 I was wondering if we could get yearly stats for editors on MDWiki (MDWiki is [1]https://mdwiki.org/wiki/Main_Page is a Thematic organization in WikiMedia that is medical articles only), I would appreciate any help possible, thank you, Ozzie Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 18:40, 21 October 2022 (UTC)
