Unbanned and sent friend request to inform user about it.

On the 2017-09-27 at 19:20 CET I banned @SuperHankHill#2151 for 24h without explicit warning for posting a screencap of a greentext from 4chan with a badly drawn picture of a guy masturbating in a shower doing a nazi salute despite being told that this will get them banned. You'll find a screenshot in #staff_log.

You will get a box in your sidebar to show Links to the same page in other languages, if they exist, like here:
Of course you can choose not to add this box if you don't like it though.

Enabling API-access is necessary for the snippet to show links to pages in Japanese on other branches, because with API-access the snippet can check if the page exists on JP.

I'm sorry I was late in here.

I got what you want to do. But, I can't get reason why you want to do.
What will SCP-JP get if SCP-JP introduce it?

API access is now enabled on our Spanish Wiki, so you can work your magic through it. ;-)

Admin de la Fundación SCP-ES

Read access via API expose nothing but things we already can retrieve from wiki by parsing it's pages with scripts (API is just much more convinient to use in scripts).

Write access can potentially be dangerous. For example, it can be used to quickly remove or blank all pages in the wiki (again, it's possible to do that via scripts without API too, but it's more easy with API access). That's why I recommend enabling only read access for members and limiting write access to administrators.

Question: what does the enabling of API implies for us? What will people be able to do with it? I'm all in favour for this, but I don't feel like taking a decision without full consciousness of what's going on.

I reviewed my position once more. Normally I'd go for DD-MM-YYYY because it's a pyramidal and logical scheme, but since it can and probably will be confused by some of our members cough cough Americans let's go with YYYY-MM-DD.


Re: Date format by LofBLofB, 02 Sep 2017 01:16

I'm working on prototype for embedded interwiki block but I'll need API access to all branches for that (to fetch pages lists from them once a day).

Basically, each branch admins should verify that they have read-access enabled for members ("Manage site" > "Security" > "API") and accept my membership request.

Current status:

  • scp-wiki — OK
  • scp-ru — OK
  • scp-wiki-de — OK
  • scp-pl — OK
  • fondationscp — OK
  • scp-kr — OK
  • scp-wiki-cn — OK
  • lafundacionscp — OK
  • scp-jp — OK
  • scp-th — OK
  • fondazionescp — OK

YYYY-MM-DD seems reasonable as it is default international standard for datetime formats (ISO-8601) and minimizes possible confusion.

LurkHD - EN (@Jake™#5903) has been kicked for failing not to shitpost after being warned by Nederbörd last Friday.

Also they said they'd be 20 but ThePaperMask - DE brought up prove that they said they'd be 23 when they first joined:
I'm unsure if we should take that into account, as they just have been kicked already.

Vandalizing another website then is not being angry, it's being an ass IMO.

Re: Agent Timothy by Dr_GromDr_Grom, 28 Aug 2017 07:32

I dont think ban is necessary. This look for me like "im bad because i wanted make something good and people yelled at me", just angry reaction. I think warning would be enough.

Re: Agent Timothy by wanna-amigowanna-amigo, 28 Aug 2017 06:58

I'm all for at the very least a temporary ban for vandalism. Should he prove to be more of an issue, we can always escelate it.

Re: Agent Timothy by LadyKatieLadyKatie, 28 Aug 2017 01:49

Update: he was banned from the French branch for his actions.

I say vandalizing pages is a severe case of being a dick. I don't think a warning is necessary, everybody who vandalizes random pages know what they are doing.

I vote for ban on INT should they reappear, without further warning.

Re: Agent Timothy by Dr_GromDr_Grom, 27 Aug 2017 21:16

It appears the license issues have been resolved:

I understand the frustrations expressed by SCP-RU staff in this post and hope that, in time, true reconciliation can be completed. Regardless I am extremely happy this has been resolved and we encourage all sites which have withdrawn recognition of SCP-RU to renew it as soon as possible.

User Agent TimothyAgent Timothy posted an Author Page on the French Wiki despite not having 3 articles posted. After several messages of french members on the Discord, he blanked two pages of the INT Archives (here and here).

After I told the other INT staff, he sent several messages on the french discord and denied everything entirely, then abruptly left the server. I insisted via PM, and he said that he wasn't even a member of INT (turns out he left the site) and that he had apparently been banned from the french discord (he wasn't).

He remains disconnected, although he joined back the french Discord. We haven't heard of him since then.

Holt and I suspect a severe and not assumed case of lying, and the bustle following all this kinda got me worked up, I admit.

User Resure from the Russian branch posted this on Discord recently:

Consultations with the lawyers are now complete and we're going to make final official statement regarding licensing issues in a few days.

So looks like we'll be hearing from them shortly. :)

Not just ours, it's *everyone's* license. We're all in this together.
