difference between Kanglei and MeiteiEdit

I think you might have not known about the difference between Kanglei and Meitei! Kanglei is an ancient as well as unofficial synonymous term for Meitei. In most (almost all) references/citations/links available, the term Kanglei is seldom used. The Regular English Wikipedia article en:Kanglei mythology was once created by one of my sock puppets. I was lucky that admins of English Wikipedia didn't find out who the creator of that article really was! Btw, whenever you type Meitei, for example, Meitei language, Meitei script, Meitei people, etc. Things appear as "Meitei" while "Kanglei" remains as an ancient unofficial term. The title of the regular English Wikipedia article was my mistake. And when I tried to organize a discussion to rename the article into formal one, which is supported by the cited references, the discussion closed as I remained blocked in that wiki. So, what do you think about it? Haoreima (talk) 04:33, 19 March 2022 (UTC)

browserEdit

hey djsasso, is it not possible to have browser specific user scripts? Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:03, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

How do you mean? -Djsasso (talk) 00:04, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
Example: I have a dark theme script, it works perfectly on Firefox, however on this browser (Chromimum) it has many errors, I was wondering if there exists such a way to disable this script on chromimum and leave it enabled on firefox?... --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:08, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
Off the top of my head I don't if you could get that to work. I would say likely you could, but it would involve writing some javascript to detect the browser and then doing your script changes conditionally based on what it returned. -Djsasso (talk) 00:11, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
Ohh I see, Thanks for the explanations! It's so strange cause each browser reacts differently to each script, and if it works on one, it won't work on the other --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:15, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
Yes that is a very common issue for websites. That's why their QA will test their stuff on many different browsers to make sure it all works and will write stuff to be different for the browser you are on if necessary. The only reason I am not fully sure about doing on wikipedia is that you can only control your own page and not sure what the wiki itself will let you do in your js when it comes to that. But like I said, it could probably be done. -Djsasso (talk) 00:18, 11 April 2022 (UTC)
There used to be a "Nightpedia" script where you could swtich on and off dark or light theme, and I have no idea where that script went now in my settings. So the downside of Chromimum, is that every site upon closing the browser it signs me out except for Wikipedia, and it has high CPU usage when idle BUT firefox has audio problems and the other problems I mentioned in the past haha. I tried opera in the past but it messed up with the linux update manger lol --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:40, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

Canvassing EnquiryEdit

Hello DJSasso, Does the following situations count as Canvassing? (not that they are happening)

1. User comes into an RFA after being told by another user he is having an RFA there are 20 Support votes and no oppose votes, the user in question opposes the RFA making the tally of their own RFA to 20/1

2. Same situation as above, but this time the user requests specifically to the user in question to oppose their own RFA and they do so Tsugaru let's talk! :) 01:06, 24 April 2022 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) - My personal opinion, but the oppose vote could be seen as disruptive or POINTy, and I would view the !voter negatively. As for the second scenario, I would really question why someone seeking a position of trust would be asking a user to vote a certain way (positively or negatively) in their RFA, and that could be seen as canvassing (and also a negative point for the RFA candidate). Griff (talk) 03:48, 24 April 2022 (UTC)
Good Points, if the user in question did option two above, however taking into account the user has a few thousand edits on the Wikimedia Project in which the RFA is taking place, and they make somewhat valid points, but only sometimes interacts with the user, and the point being put into the RFA an hour or so before it (the RFA) being taken down, would this raise any more red flags if they are accused of canvassing? Sorry this is getting a bit long, just curious about situations like these. --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 00:08, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
I think it would raise some eyebrows, but whether it reaches the point of an actual policy violation is a whole other story. Every situation is unique and it's hard to know when only speaking in hypotheticals. Griff (talk) 03:03, 25 April 2022 (UTC)
Yea, that's the tricky part here, usually canvassing is seen as user voting for the candidate, etc. I don't think I've ever seen a situation where a user votes against. I've seen some RFAs before where users were caught canvassing, but I won't name them (the RFAs) --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 03:08, 25 April 2022 (UTC)

HiEdit

Hey, Djsasso, I haven't seen you around for a while, I hope everything is well :-) --Tsugaru let's talk! :) 03:14, 13 May 2022 (UTC)
