Need some help with uploading these comments. And also need help with deleting some stuff
Open, NormalPublic


There are two things that I need help with. The first thing I need help with is importing these comments. They were comments of pages that had the Poll: prefix. I wanted to upload them with the prefix Talk:AjaxPoll: instead of the prefix Talk:Poll: but it won't let me upload anything with the Talk:Poll: prefix because of the restrictions placed on the Poll namespace. Even if I try to immediately upload them to the Talk:AjaxPoll: namespace which I created, it doesn't work. I was hoping a system administrator could upload them from the server side. The Miraheze wiki in question is

I also wanted the following pages to be deleted. But NOT suppressed. Just deleted normally:

I've deleted the pages, as they just required bigdelete.

Per Void and the XML page you mention is 65 KB so you should be able to use Special:Import for that.

I have attempted to use Special:Import for that. But it doesn't let me import it. Because when I import it, it says that I can't import things under those titles.

I've just tried it again. It still doesn't work.

Per ^

@C.Syde65 I apologize for the time that it took for this to be done.

There seems to be an issue with the import which will need @Paladox to look into it.

Yeah, that's why I had to go here in the first place. Since I'd done everything I could think of. And it still hasn't worked.

I get stuff like:

Page "Talk:Poll:Do_you_prefer_Robots_or_Madagascar?/@comment-5143323-20191102030407" is not imported because its name is invalid.

Yes. I was hoping perhaps they could be imported from the server side. Or if there was some trick that can allow you to import them directly with the "Talk:Ajax Poll:" prefix instead of the "Talk:Poll:" prefix, because the latter prefix currently is preventing all attempts at importing the comments from being impossible.

Now there's this one that also needs uploading.

As well as this one.

@C.Syde65 Sorry for the late reply. It seems there have been many replies on this task, what do you still need doing as of now?

I need help with uploading everything that I said that I needed help uploading.

@C.Syde65 I am sure you would be able to upload 3KB files via Special:Import.

No response for more than a week. If this is still needed / you are unable to upload the files please feel free to reopen.

That's not the point. I'm trying to upload comments that have "Poll:" in front of them. But because of the restrictions on the poll namespace, I can't upload them. Even if I upload them directly to another title, it still refuses to let me do it. Which is why I require assistance from someone that has the ability to bypass these restrictions and upload this stuff from the server side.

It seems the bug that Paladox mentioned is still happening.

Is this still needed?
