To display a message please insert the template {{Db-hoax}} or {{Fake news}} at the top of the article. See help page on how to add template.

Feature suggestions[edit]

You can put below feature suggestion like installing a new MediaWiki extension in the table


  • User:WikiMasterBot2 should also record the page size (bytes) of each revision in the Edithistory: namespace table page.
  • User:WikiMasterBot2 should record the page ID (also known as curation ID, curid) into the edit history namespace table page. Visible in ?action=info
  • In articles imported from Wikipedia's Draft: name space, the category links (example: [[:Category:Example]]) should be converted into actual categories: [[Category:Example]].
    • I'm planning to do this task but I wonder how to avoid replacing on true link to categories that could exist. WikiMaster


  • Interwiki linking with e.g. de:Hauptseite.
    • Special:Interwiki already exists, WikiMaster will create new interwiki prefix like even for english EverybodyWiki, evfr for french one, evde for german one...

Page protection[edit]

  • Allow Wikeepers to change the protection of pages to prevent vandalism on high-traffic pages and misuse of the “Protect from non-authors” feature on general pages. Vandals currently can create and author-protect pages just to block the titles from any editing (namejacking/titlejacking).
  • There should be protection levels “Autoconfirmed only” (semi-protected) and “allow Wikeepers and WikiGuardians only” for pages like this.

Wikipedia has fine protection levels such as pending changes protection, semi-protection (editable automatically after both 4 days and 10 edits), extended autoconfirmed protection (editable automatically after both 30 days and 500 edits) and template editor protection. Access to the template editor right can only be manually granted by an administrator.

If pages are protected as administrator only due to excessive vandalism, vandals could prevent legitimate editors from editing.

WikiMaster has tried to add the right authorprotect to Wikeeper but it's not working. I will create a report page to let anybody report an abuse of the right to protect a page.

    • Thanks I will check that. WM
      • @WikiMaster: - Do you have check that ? Florian COLLIN (talk) 12:13, 22 December 2020 (CET)
      • $wgGroupPermissions['Wikeeper']['author'] = true;. I think that's it, for the EverybodyWiki in French according to my API requests.


  • Dark mode extension
    • to be tested after upgrade to MW 1.35
  • Enabling $wgMaxCredits (setting to 5 or 10) to write the name of article authors at the bottom)
    • WikiMaster : interesting but "impact on performance for large wikis."
  • Import queue site for user:WikiMasterBot2, such as Project:ImportQueue, because manual copy-pastes do not include edit history tables.
  • Show both Edit and Edit source on top for editors by default:
    • As most of user will never use wikicode I prefer to let the edit Source link hidden but you can still go to your prefs > Editing > Editing mode > Show me both editor tabs to display both :)

Todo for Company and other forms.

Edit requests[edit]

Some pages are edit-protected to prevent damage from vandalism.

To submit an edit request, insert {{edit request}} on the discussion page.

A list of pages with pending edit requests:

To be done by User:WikiMasterBot2[edit]

Check if page "marked as kept on WP" were really kept[edit]

Pages kept on WP are automatically blanked, but the bot could be wrong sometimes so every page has to be checked manually. If the page was finally not kept it has to be restored on Everybodywiki. To do this job go to Template:Kept_on_Wikipedia


Captcha is not necessary for autoconfirmed users

Today was the first time I got a hCaptcha challenge when adding a reference to one of my articles.

I think that autoconfirmed users should not have to solve a CAPTCHA every time they add a link.

I understand it is to prevent bot spamming, but there is already a new hCAPTCHA for registration and strict action throttling for non-autoconfirmed users, therefore autoconfirmed users should not have to solve an hCaptcha.

I hope my feedback will be taken into consideration.


The skipcaptcha user right needs to be added to the Autoconfirmed group.
