Timed out connection?[edit]

I initially raised the "timed out connection" issue at MediaWiki but then was told to come here instead. More than eight hours ago, I tried surfing Phabricator, Meta-wiki, Wikipedia, and other project sites, but then these sites took too long to either respond or load. Meanwhile, the Internet in my area was all right. Fifteen or twenty minutes later, the sites were able to load once again. Was there something wrong with the servers or something like that?

@George Ho were you connecting from somewhere in Asia/Oceania? You probably encountered phab:T284986. Legoktm (talk) 18:30, 16 June 2021 (UTC)
Neither of those regions/continents. But received reply at Mediawiki, saying that there's the server admin log. George Ho (talk) 20:07, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

Module Lua error[edit]

how to correct this mni:Module:Lang Lua error at line 15 A Mangang (talk) 19:04, 13 June 2021 (UTC)

Script error: No such module "ping". Hi, the complete error message is Lua error in Module:Lang at line 15: attempt to index field 'lang_name_table' (a nil value) (please always include complete error messages for anyone who might be looking at this thread at some later point). Please explain what [[List of national mottos#M|La Patria Es Primero]] on mni:ꯃꯦꯛꯁꯤꯀꯣ is supposed to do, and how mni:ꯇꯦꯝꯄ꯭ꯂꯦꯠ:Native_phrase is supposed to handle that input. Thanks, --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 17:29, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

Asking About the Feasibility of Enabling Extension:Lockdown on zh.wikipedia[edit]

The Chinese Wikipedia is discussing whether to set the LTA namespace (to record the activities of long-term abuse[rs]). Some suggested that the namespace should enable mw:Extension:Lockdown to prevent abusers from accessing the pages to whether avoid their editing behaviors or learn more vandalistic techniques. So I'm here to ask if the community would have a consensus on setting the namespace, is it possible for zh.wikipedia to enable Extension:Lockdown? THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR ENABLEMENT --羊羊32521 (talk) 03:35, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

In theory, yes you can request for it to be enabled. But as it is not enabled on any WMF wiki, it would require going through mw:Writing an extension for deployment#Preparing for deployment, and potentially need some remedial work too. None of that is a quick process, and is not guaranteed that it will result in deployment. Reedy (talk) 04:17, 19 June 2021 (UTC)

I feel like the current logo of the Latin Wikisource (Vikifons) is not an SVG but a bitmap image, please see my comparison where the Vikifons logo appears blurrier than the other Wikimedia projects logos. Can anyone confirm? Veverve (talk) 21:24, 9 July 2021 (UTC)

@Veverve: All logos are bitmap for performance (clients can faster render them) and compatibility reasons (older browsers may have issues with SVG). However, most logos (including the four wikis you took screenshot of, as well as the Latin Wikipedia and Wikibooks) also provide 1.5× and 2× sized PNG logos for high density screens. Latin Wikisource and some 200 other wikis, however, don’t have such resized logos, and thus look blurry on high-density screens or when you zoom in. I’ve opened a task on Phabricator to ask for high-resolution logos for all wikis. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 11:47, 10 July 2021 (UTC)
