2021-02-28 16:07:21 <MH-Discord> <Doug> hi @Hispano76 ๐Ÿ™‚
2021-02-28 16:13:44 <JohnLewis> dmehus: can you explain your recent revdels? I canโ€™t see a need or justification myself
2021-02-28 16:14:16 <MH-Discord> <MrJaroslavik> ^agree
2021-02-28 16:20:16 <MH-Discord> <MrJaroslavik> Also why oversight every edit from IP adress without any request?
2021-02-28 16:41:26 <dmehus> JohnLewis, there's no policy on revision deletions; it's largely based on common sense. The thinking here is that the really long nonsense vandalism clutters up the page histories. Note that I didn't revision delete the content, only the summaries, and I did peer review it with Reception123 who said it was a tad unconventional, but did see a use case
2021-02-28 16:42:08 <MH-Discord> <MrJaroslavik> Oh, as always - "there is no policy"
2021-02-28 16:42:14 <MH-Discord> <DarkMatterMan4500> I was about to ask why he added it, then deleted it.
2021-02-28 16:44:11 <MH-Discord> <R4356th> While I agreed with the deletion, I just thought it would be worth noting that you doing a "peer review" with Reception123 is canvassing ([[w:WP:CANVAS]]).

2021-02-28 17:52:05 <Zppix> Just because theres no policy doesnt mean it should be used at free will
2021-02-28 17:52:21 <MH-Discord> <MrJaroslavik> ^
2021-02-28 17:53:11 <Zppix> Im frankly getting tired of people in general using lack of policy as an excuse for their actions
2021-02-28 17:53:30 <Zppix> We shouldnt need a policy for everything
2021-02-28 19:02:01 <MH-Discord> <Lake> uh, can a moveBatch be done?
2021-02-28 19:02:30 <MH-Discord> <Lake> For some reason, the CSV I imported didn't detect the "File:" prefix
2021-02-28 19:02:40 <MH-Discord> <Lake> so it created normal pages
2021-02-28 19:04:20 <dmehus> @Lake, yep, it can. Reception123 just did one not too long for BurningPrincess1
2021-02-28 19:05:00 <MH-Discord> <Lake> oh, alright, thanks :)
2021-02-28 19:05:10 <dmehus> ```Old page name including namespace (if any)|New page name including namespace (if any)```, one per line
2021-02-28 19:05:10 <dmehus> I believe the syntax for your *.txt file is:
2021-02-28 19:05:15 <dmehus> @Lake, np :)
2021-02-28 19:07:00 <MH-Discord> <Lake> and another thing. Is it possible to hide, merge or even delete history of pages? Would be good if those pages I'm moving didn't had that warning saying "there was a page here and it was move"
2021-02-28 19:07:04 <MH-Discord> <Lake> moved*
2021-02-28 19:07:54 <dmehus> @Lake, that should be possible, yes, I believe there's a delete old revisions script
2021-02-28 19:08:07 <dmehus> but I'm not as familiar with the configuration parameters of that script
2021-02-28 19:19:38 <MH-Discord> <Lake> did it, [[phab:T6914]]
2021-02-28 19:19:39 <MH-Discord> <Wiki-Bot>
2021-02-28 19:19:40 <MirahezeBot> [ โš“ T6914 MoveBatch a list of pages ] -
2021-02-28 19:35:41 <dmehus> thanks, Lake
2021-02-28 19:41:15 <dmehus> @Lake, did you want Reception123 to run `createLocalAccount.php` first, to force attach Move page script to your wiki so you can `bot` flag it and prevent RC flooding?
2021-02-28 19:42:10 <MH-Discord> <Lake> not really, I didn't know it flooded RC (as far I remember, deletebatch did not)
2021-02-28 19:56:25 <dmehus> @Lake, not too badly, yeah, but it will show up in the `(Deletion log)` or `(Move log)` in RC
2021-02-28 19:56:46 <dmehus> You can always bot flag it after the script is run, for next time, if you want
2021-02-28 19:57:12 <MH-Discord> <Lake> well, it can, or not, doesn't really make a difference for now, the logs will disappear after I made a lot of other edits, right? :P
2021-02-28 19:57:23 <dmehus> @Lake yeah
2021-02-28 19:57:48 <dmehus> and you're also the only main contributor to that wiki, so not really an issue from that perspective as well
