Hi Whatamidoing (WMF)

I think you are interested in visual editor. If so, is it true that ve does not work in user space?

Thanks, @Ottawahitech. I replied there. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 05:14, 18 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Flow ?[edit]

Hi Whatamidoing (WMF),

You have probably already seen it, but just in case. I happened to see an old discussion at: WD so thought I would bring it to your attention. Ottawahitech (talk) 18:00, 11 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks. I wonder why they never (apparently) created the page they were discussing. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:39, 13 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

replyto tool[edit]

I have been using the replyto tool on several wikis, and it works well in most cases. However, just now I am trying to use it on outreach-wiki to repond to someone who pinged me to a discussion, and maddenly a post I worked on for quite a while will not post, insisting I am not logged in, even though the preview clearly shows that I am logged in (by showing my signature). I even tried discarding my post and stating over again (after copy & pasting my post), but still no go. I hope it is OK to post this here. Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 06:42, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

problem solved - sorry to bother. 07:25, 31 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Just here to report I have been using the reply tool on Wikiquote, and am very happy with it, especially with the addition of an edit summary line at the bottom (not installed at w-voyage yet), I guess. The only problems I have encountered with it so far, is in a couple of instances where I got into an edit conflict. The last time this happened I was able to simply reload my box of text, but had to completely redo my edit summary, which did not render very well.
I hope others will start using it more frequently, as the indentation and signing of posts is atrocious on some boards there when users try not do it the oldfashioned-wki-way.

Some more feedback[edit]

Hi Whatamidoing (WMF)

I just noticed a notification i recieved on this wiki:

Cngratulations! You are now eligible for The Wikipedia Library. Cick here...

I thought it would be handy, but since I am blocked on enwiki, I was curious to see how I could get access. So I clicked and, no surprise, saw:

Meet these criteria for automatic access... No active blocks

I think that you have to be blocked on two wikis for it to matter. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 19:04, 28 February 2022 (UTC)[reply]
