Archiving Support

Hello. With support now using good ol' talk pages, do you think you'll need a bot to regularly archives threads over there? If nobody is willing to, I operate a bot with on Wikimedia wikis which I may be able to run here too if so wished. The script is basic though, but does its job. (By the way, there are a number of inactive users flagged as bot that TWN staff may wish to review). Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:24, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, I was planning on setting up an myself, but if you already run one and would be willing to set it up for use here, that would be awesome. Will you also create the archiving template the bot needs? Jon Harald Søby (talk) 16:27, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I can try it, but it may take a while since I'd prefer to use a separate Toolforge tool independent from the one I use for Wikimedia wikis. If you already planned to setup a bot yourself, and since you have a bot approved here already, I think I'll give way. But if you need help with the script, etc. please let me know and I'll be happy to help if I can. Yours, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:30, 14 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Per our conversation on IRC today I set up User:ArchiveBot and started configuring the tool server as well. In order to run the tool via the OAuth secure protocol, I'll need temporary admin rights on ArchiveBot for Special:OAuthConsumerRegistration (can be taken back after I've finished) and then I'll be ready to test it. We can talk about this on IRC later. Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 22:59, 23 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why does this wiki and wikispore allow us to change languages regardless of whether we are registered or not, while Wikimedia (and Miraheze) projects require login? No se (talk) 18:49, 10 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@No se: As far as I understand, it is because of caching issues. This wiki (and Wikispore wikis) are quite low-traffic, but for wikis that get as much traffic as Wikimedia's wikis do, changing languages without registering adds a lot of complexity when it comes to caching; instead of having one copy of the page that is served to users, you would have to have hundreds of copies (one for each interface language), and that could potentially slow down the sites. I'm not a caching expert though, so I don't know the specifics. Jon Harald Søby (talk) 14:28, 11 June 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
