Wikifunctions:Apply for editing

From Wikifunctions

There are two new types of advanced-rights user-groups in Wikifunctions: Functioneers and Maintainers. The short-descriptions of each user-right are within Special:ListGroupRights, and there is more detailed context at mw:Help:Wikifunctions/User rights.

Other roles with respective user group rights can be requested on the Requests for user groups page.

Limited function editing during early access

During the first few months of Wikifunctions existence as a production-wiki, the access to creating and editing Object-pages will be limited to an initially small, but steadily growing number of trusted editors, as described in our initial deployment plans.

This is needed because there is a lot of uniquely complex software behind this project, and we want to make sure it is secure and scalable, both for users, and also for the developers in other teams who are supporting the related backend Services.

Permissions during this testing-period will be temporary (~6 months). Once this testing-period is over, the approval process will be run by the community. Processed requests are archived.

Requests for early access to function editing

Please add your username below to be on the list for approval. The development team will steadily approve new accounts as the system successfully scales with that growth. We will try to roughly follow the order of requests, but we might prefer community members in good standing.

Note: we are slowly giving out user rights for now, in order to watch for irregularities. Apologies for being so cautious!

  • Thanks! --Charcoal feather (talk) 23:35, 5 August 2023 (UTC)
  • I'm diverse but it's intentionally impossible to tell, lol. I'm a complete newbie to functions, I just want to try them. Sandizer (talk) 21:37, 7 August 2023 (UTC)
  • Matthew Sumpter, 15:07, 8 August 2023 (UTC) - software developer and very interested wikipedian!
  • I would like to help contribute to this effort in various ways, including adding / editing functions, as well as helping with backend features where possible (found my way here via Denny's posts in the Future of Coding community) Jryans (talk) 15:29, 9 August 2023 (UTC)

    @Stuartyeates (wikifunctions): Are you the same Stuart Yeates as Stuartyeats on Wikipedia? If so, happy to grant it, but please use the SUL account. --DVrandecic (WMF) (talk) 19:23, 29 August 2023 (UTC)
    @DVrandecic (WMF): That would be great, I didn't get the ping, because it wasn't my SUL account. Stuartyeates (talk) 04:20, 21 November 2023 (UTC)

  • I have more experience with other sites using mediawiki. Although I will not be very active here, I still want to participate in the construction here. 星海子 (talk) 08:18, 24 August 2023 (UTC)
  • Reasonably competent in Python, JS, Go. Muxon (talk) 09:03, 4 October 2023 (UTC)
  • I'd like to try this Wikifunctioning thing out. I've got a decent amount of experience in Python and, last I checked, not breaking things. DigitalCross (talk) 02:28, 5 October 2023 (UTC)

  • Versed in JavaScript and Python --TenWhile6 (talk) 13:45, 14 October 2023 (UTC)
  • Versed in Python and in addition I know a fair amount of various mathematical functions as well as their implementations. --Cool314 (talk) 14:41, 17 October 2023 (UTC) ADDENDUM: I realized just now that I ought to mention that I am in the process of learning OCaml and that I have worked with various proof assistants and verifiers like Lean, Coq, and Metamath.

  • I’m also versed in JavaScript. Aaron Liu (talk) 15:01, 20 October 2023 (UTC)
  • I want to edit and practice wikifunction. I can write code because I am a supporter and editor on mediawiki. I also contribute on Google.Tanbirzx (talk) 07:11, 21 October 2023 (UTC)
  • I can write python and javascript. Discovered you need edit rights to edit even labels so I apply :) Long time wikimedian, I coded javascript gadgets (for Wikidata mostly) and a bit of lua for modules. No plans for Wikifunctions yet, I might toy with the suggested functions and try to implement one on occasion. TomT0m (talk) 17:16, 21 October 2023 (UTC)

  • Hello everyone, I have been contributing to Wikimedia projects for more than 6 years, and I have advanced knowledge of the Python language, and I have worked on developing bots previously, and I would like to start here.--Osps7 (talk) 23:40, 14 November 2023 (UTC)

  • I have a long history of good edits on Wikidata. I know python and js and would like to help create implementations for math functions. Lectrician1 (talk) 17:20, 19 November 2023 (UTC)
  • I know some python. I would like to try this out and start with Dagbani string functions. -Masssly (talk) 20:19, 23 November 2023 (UTC)

General release

Now that we have reached the general release phase, it is no longer necessary to be a Functioneer in order to create new functions, implementations, and tests. You can all start creating functions now!

Thank you for your patience during the soft rollout and careful early testing and scaling of the software. If you have any questions, please bring them to the WF:Project chat.

@Quiddity: Exciting! Thank you, I can't wait to try it with my LLM API-based reference verification experiments. Is there any provision for keeping secrets like API keys? Sandizer (talk) 07:45, 2 December 2023 (UTC)
Thank you for the ping, I am very happy to hear that, after waiting patiently. ToadetteEdit (talk) 19:17, 2 December 2023 (UTC)
