Requesting for Adminstration
I would like to be a Administrator here for having access to Special:ReplaceText, I think after near one year activity here and near 2k edit I have enough experience for using this extension wisely. I don't know granting access in translatewiki is community based or not but I think the Persian translators community can trust me for having this access. Special:ReplaceText is very good for finding exact instance of one Regex template in texts and I think I know needed Regex sufficient.
Sorry to step in here. ReplaceText is not to be used by users with the Administrator/sysop role; we reserve usage of this functionality to staff. I am removing this right for administrators. We suggest using a pywikipediabot.
ops, pywikipedia for crawling near 2milion pages? really? okay, I want to know read-only ReplaceText is not applicable for you? (for manually editing)
Please explain your problem. I can provide a list of pages in a particular language.
You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Users.
You can view and copy the source of this page.ebraminiotalk
Return to Thread:Project:Translator/Requesting for Adminstration/reply (6).
Using regex on over a million pages in translatewiki.net will be blocking our database for too long. We really cannot make that functionality available. If you were to provide the regexes you are looking for, we will try and find a way to help you out.
Okay, Thanks for your great jobs on TranslateWiki. Seems i must use Pywikipedia. If you have time, Please make list of Persian translations for me. Also SQL or XML dump of this wiki (separated for each language) or a replication on toolserver is other solutions I think.
May it is better this thread moved to Portal:Fa. Thanks again!
Feel free to move the thread. Will get back with a reply. Data dump: have to ask Niklas.
I'm running a backup script now. We'll have to inspect what this results in. If it's OK, we can schedule a weekly dump.
php ./dumpBackup.php --current --report=1000 --skipheader --skip-footer --conf=../LocalSettings.php --output=bzip2:$HOME/dump.bzip2
Backup is ready. Took about 20 minutes to create. Now checking if there's not something in there we wouldn't want to distribute (I think that there are no issues, but better safe than sorry). Will now also prepare a list of '/fa' pages with namespace.
- fa.txt contains all pages ending "/fa"
- translatewiki.net-dump-2011-04-13.xml.bz2 contains an XML dump of translatewiki.net
Thank you. I don't need fa.txt because I will use "LIKE" on titles (also this is not needed really for me), But just a little problem, I can not download huge files in periods of time because it will consume my Internet traffic limits and my Internet traffic is so limited.
Can you split this dumps if you have program for publishing this dump also in future?
Split what/how? It's "only" a 77MB download.
Splitting dump of each language. This tool is useful if you want.
Sadly, yes, it is only "77mb" but is big for me :(
