User group stacking

Hello, I wondering if it is ok for you to remove "Account creator" & "Confirmed" user groups from yourself and @Sannita (WMF) as long as there is no technical reasons you require the rights, since the rights they assign to you are redundant since you hold autoconfirmed and administrator. (Easier to read Special:ListUsers/wikifunctions-staff) Thanks, Terasail[✉️] 15:33, 15 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Same applies to transwiki importer --Ameisenigel (talk) 15:43, 15 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
@Terasail I've removed "Account creator" & "Confirmed" & "IP Block Exempt" from myself and Sannita (WMF) - those were just added when we were having problems editing anything on day 1, but the problems got fixed in some other way that I forget at the moment.
@Ameisenigel I don't have the rights to remove "transwiki importer" from myself! But I'll ask James to do so later. :)
Thanks, both! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 06:28, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply
If there is a problem, I can just request this from the stewards. --Ameisenigel (talk) 07:52, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Now Done! Sorry for the delay. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 16:54, 14 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Permanent user rights

I noticed that you have granted permanent translation admin rights to @Jon Harald Søby: All other user rights granted without Community process have just been granted temporary. Could you please set them temporary here as well? Thanks, --Ameisenigel (talk) 08:23, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Done Thanks! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 08:29, 16 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Check if it's possible to import from wikidata

Hi Quiddity, could you check if import from wikidata to this site works fine? Just want to know if T343365 works as expected. Thanks! Stang 10:55, 17 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Sure, which page(s) would you like me to test with, or import specifically? :) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 15:10, 17 August 2023 (UTC)Reply

Duplication problem


It's seems that duplication is better but still broken (at least for Breton plural -ioù and soft mutation (Z11786)). What should we do now? (also notifying @Koavf and 99of9:).

Hi, is the bug currently reproducible somewhere? If so, would you be willing to file a bug in Phabricator for it? (Or point me towards any details (beyond those in the Project chat thread) so that I can try to do so). Thanks! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:47, 13 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
@VIGNERON I'm trying to understand how widespread the problem is, and what needs to be done (if anything) by the staff developers (or by myself) to resolve this.
You wrote above that Z11786 is "still broken", but in what way? I tried adding a new language label with my non-staff account and it worked.
I'd like to help but I'm not sure what the problem is! Are there still any existing ZObjects that you/others cannot edit or add labels for? Or are you asking for help with fixing the gadget? Sorry for my confusion! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:26, 14 November 2023 (UTC)Reply
TBH, I'm quite confused myself (hence why I didn't created a phab task).
It seems the problem comes from the gadget (so it's quite rare, but duplication feels like an important feature), so I guess the gadget need fixing first.
But also on Z11786, some things are still "strange". Labels works now but not the function : if I enter an input, I've got void (and Error summary: [Z525/Invalid key]). Plus, it's not the right test connected to the implementation (and here, it's me who don't know how to change that). My example is not important in itself but maybe it could help fixing the gadget itself (which is my main goal)
