Twinkle templates[change source]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have edited the Template:You've got mail for removing the extra bold, and can an administrator please do the same to Template:Talkback? Thanks. Curtaintoad (talk) 05:32, 27 April 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Eight years later, this is still not fixed. Might be better to request at the template's talk, though. 1234qwer1234qwer4 (talk) 21:03, 9 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Twinkle rfd option to wrap with noinclude doesn't work[change source]

With the rfd function, Twinkle gives you a checkbox to allow wrapping the rfd template in "noinclude" tags. Checking that box doesn't seem to do anything. Could we either 1) make the function work or 2) replace the checkbox with a note about using "noinclude" tags if you're rfd'ing a template? --Auntof6 (talk) 23:25, 21 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Twinkle seems to have stopped marking pages as patrolled[change source]

When I use Twinkle to do a QD, it is no longer marking the page as patrolled. Was that a deliberate change? --Auntof6 (talk) 19:58, 12 June 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Changed {{Uw-vandalism2}}[change source]

I have changed that Template:Uw-vandalism2 to have an orange icon. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 08:38, 7 May 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Hmm... I see that new orange icon on the English Wikipedia. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 08:53, 7 May 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Same with almost every Level 2 warning tag. Edited more. Qwertyxp2000 (talk) 09:01, 7 May 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Twinkle down?[change source]

I have been trying to give warnings to a user, but nothing happens. It shows the box, but it stops. Also can't report to VIP for some reason. Glitch? --ABCDEFAD 21:28, 24 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]

Apparently, it works on page tagging. What?--ABCDEFAD 21:40, 24 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I did a few tests and it appears that it's just a bit slow; wait a few seconds and it should work fine. -Mh7kJ (talk) 21:43, 24 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]
There is a type of glitch that if a warning is reverted, then Twinkle gets confused and does not work correctly. I had a vandal reverting me and another editor yesterday here on an IP talk page: [[1]. Twinkle completely stalled and would not work right. It would not enter any warning except leveI one. I had to manually enter all the IP notices after the first, and some of the vandalism levels, as you can see from the history. Fylbecatulous talk 22:11, 24 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Twinkle is very much a use at your own risk item here. It isn't really fully supported or working here. -DJSasso (talk) 01:52, 30 June 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Other things it's no longer doing correctly:
  • If you select any warning level other than 1, it seems to hang up.
  • It doesn't let you select any options other than "General note".
--Auntof6 (talk) 17:11, 2 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Cool, now when I press something, lets say level 3, it shows level 1 instead of level 3 warning.WTF?--ABCDEFAD 20:52, 8 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, level 2 warning hangs up. Thought it might be that preferences need to be refreshed here every now and then, but reselecting them and restarting the browser both don't help. Sminthopsis84 (talk) 16:18, 9 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]
I changed the tw preferences to make the default level 2, and now the only thing it is showing is level 2 warnings, not level 1.--ABCDEFAD 13:07, 23 July 2015 (UTC)[reply]

About[change source]

I think we should have users put in the code because it puts admins in a better position to help deal with abuse (as admins can edit other's JS files). Opinions? Krett12 (talk) 22:28, 24 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

That's not a very good idea. We want to make it easier for other editors to use Twinkle. It's more intuitive to just check a box in your own preferences as compared to inserting some code in your own JS (which some editors may not even understand). If there's abuse of Twinkle, the blocking policy will apply. Chenzw  Talk  01:20, 25 October 2015 (UTC)[reply]

"product" in QD A4[change source]

Twinkle currently lists "People, groups, companies or websites" for A4 quick deletion, and the note mentions "a real person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content". However, the deletion policy refers to "people, groups, companies, products, services or websites". Notably, "products" is listed on the deletion policy but not in Twinkle. Could this be changed? Thanks, -- Irn (talk) 15:18, 13 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Where is the list that needs product added? When I use Twinkle, I see "product" included in the A4 option. Note: if possible, it would be good to refer to the policy page instead of duplicating information. --Auntof6 (talk) 15:30, 13 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
That's strange. Mine shows as I quoted it above: "A4: People, groups, companies or websites that are not notable." When I hover over the little question mark, it says "An article about a real person, group of people, band, club, company, or web content that does not say why it is important." -- Irn (talk) 15:40, 13 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Maybe you're invoking it differently. Can you post a screenshot? --Auntof6 (talk) 16:10, 13 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Screenshot. -- Irn (talk) 17:06, 13 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. I don't think I've seen that screen before. Since I'm an admin here, though, I'd have little use for it here, and I don't work on other Wikipedias much these days. In any case, I don't know how to change those things. I recommend that you post at WP:Simple talk to ask for help and direct people to this conversation. It might help if you say (here) what skin you use and exactly how you invoke Twinkle. I imagine someone will be able to help. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:36, 13 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
I have updated the wiki's gadget file. Please bypass yourr browser's cache and see if the revised QD A4 description shows up. Chenzw  Talk  07:07, 14 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]
That did it, thank you! -- Irn (talk) 16:37, 14 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

QD U2 Notification[change source]

When I mark an anonymous IP user's user page, which shouldn't exist, with Twinkle as QD U2 and ask for notification of the author, the notification is not happening.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:01, 23 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

The same is happening with QD G7.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:51, 24 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

I've noticed another change with Twinkle in the last few days or week or so: when I roll back a change, then click on the user's talk page to leave a message, it doesn't always insert the name of the page where the rollback happened. --Auntof6 (talk) 17:53, 24 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Protect alert[change source]

Ambox warning pn.svg

This page will be protected. --Carmen Melendez 21:06, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

@Carmen Melendez: I strongly doubt a Wikipedia-space talk page will be protected, plus Wikipedia:Twinkle hasn't seen any disruption since last year, and doesn't need protection -- There'sNoTime (to explain) 21:11, 26 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]
I meant the project page. --Carmen Melendez 21:39, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
@Carmen Melendez: Well it's unlikely to be protected given the amount of disruption doesn't warrant it. Also, please change your signature so it meets our requirements -- There'sNoTime (to explain) 21:41, 26 June 2017 (UTC)[reply]

VIP[change source]

Hi, Is there anyway this can be changed so that if a user you're reporting to VIP is already at VIP that it doesn't automatically redirect you there?,

For instance over at EN if a user is already reported at AIV it says:
"Processing AIV request: Report already present, will not add a new one
The comments you typed are provided below, in case you wish to manually post them under the existing report for this user at AIV:
Test for Simple EN - ignore this. ~~~~"

It would be far more helpful to have this action happen here so that if someone's already at VIP you can then copy and paste your rationale there as opposed to losing it all and essentially starting from scratch (Although you wouldn't copy/paste your whole reasoning you would copy atleast half of it which is what I do at EN if the user i'm reporting is already reported),

Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 23:57, 2 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, where is the source code/pages for Twinkle's options[change source]

Hi, I is looking for the source code of Twinkle's modules, where can the codes be found? -- Psl631 Leave me a message! my changes email me 14:41, 24 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

The Rollback Links does not display[change source]

Hello, The "rollback" types this tool offer does not appear, today when I reverted vandalism, forced I to click "undo" on the vandalism edit. Today, also on the article Vitruvian Man, changed multiple IPs the article, the change was vandalism, but the "Restore this Version" link to the latest non-vandalism edit also does not appear, forced I to revert the change (s) manually by going to latest non-vandalism edit and click "Change" and then "Publish changes". Please fix this issue. -- Psl631 Leave me a message! my changes email me 08:08, 27 April 2018 (UTC)[reply]

New welcome problem IP template[change source]

Hello. Would it be possible to blend {{welcome}} (for registered editors) with {{welcome-anon}} for IP editors who have made unhelpful edits, but may not be worthy of a warning? Importing the en:Template:Welcome-anon-unconstructive from enwiki would be great. The wording isn't quite simple, but I'd be willing to simplify it, if needed. I'll provide any assistance I can.

Can we add custom warnings template on Twinkle?[change source]

Should we add a template that can allow us to put custom warnings in Twinkle (just like in the English Wikipedia)? CentralTime301 (📱, 📝) 18:23, 5 December 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Does Twinkle work on Safari on iPad?[change source]

I just wanted to know If Twinkle just works on iPad running iOS 13 on Safari. Thank you. Arthurfan828 - CHAT 15:47, 26 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Yes, but not on "Mobile view". Also works on iPadOS 14. Android 2113853211 (talk) 10:31, 28 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Self-warn[change source]

I nominated a page that I created myself for QD, and it notified me. See here ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 00:35, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Prahlad balaji, this is normal for it to notify you, also your signature is confusing when I view it while editing in edit mode--Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:03, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Thegooduser, how is my signature confusing? ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 01:05, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Prahlad balaji, It isn't when I am just viewing the page, but when I edit I see [[User:Prahlad balaji|~]][[User:Prahlad balaji|Prahlad balaji]] ([[User talk:Prahlad balaji|t]] / [[Special:Contribs/Prahlad balaji|c]]) and it's confusing at first to try to copy and paste your username to ping you --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:12, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
thegooduser, ok. I will simplify it a bit. In progress... ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 01:14, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]
 Done ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 01:16, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

~Prahlad balaji, thanks! --Thegooduser Let's Talk! :) 🍁 01:21, 29 July 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Double warns[change source]

When I tag an article with QD G3, it asks for more details twice, not once as with the other criteria, even if I tag it with other criteria. ~Prahlad balaji (t / c) 03:59, 6 August 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Grant proposal for creating a localised version of Twinkle[change source]

Hi all. I wanted to note that I have made a m:Rapid Grant proposal for improving Twinkle so that it is localisable. See m:Grants:Project/Rapid/SD0001/Twinkle localisation. It means it would be easier to set up Twinkle on a new wiki, and updates will automatically propagate to Twinkle installations on all wikis. Project-specific templates and logic would be customisable via sitewide configuration files. Feel free to drop any comments or community endorsements. Thanks!

Not found[change source]

I don't find Twinkle in the gadget preference. Can someone explain? Enjoyer of World (talk) 00:51, 13 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I'm Sorry[change source]

I Didn't Do Any Vandalism on 2nd Millennium Kat885 (talk) 15:06, 29 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

I've marked your edit as wrong information, not vandalism. It is not a bug in Twinkle, I am just adding templates because it was quicker and easier to do. (It would take a while to type everything out and just remove the vandalism part!) I have responded to your comment on your talk page. Please don't worry about this edit, you won't be getting blocked for it at all. Belwine💬📜 15:08, 29 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
