Hello, I’m Amanda.

I am currently the webmaster for Weather Wiki - https://weather.miraheze.org

I try to help out where I can. Please note though, that I am usually sleeping between 02:30 and 13:00 UTC (10:30 PM - 9:00 AM Eastern Canada Time) so I will not be able to attend to any tasks I may have started during that time.

AmandaCath changed the status of T3831: New Extension For Wikis from Open to Stalled.

Used by ShoutWiki which is another trustworthy wiki farm, so shouldn’t be any security issues per se. However, I will note that the MediaWiki documentation page indicates that the latest version was released back in 2015 for MediaWiki 1.23, so if there haven’t been any substantial core updates since then, the code will need to be examined closely to see if there are any major bugs or flaws that would block installation.

AmandaCath added a project to T3794: Upgrade to MediaWiki 1.32: Amanda Catherine.

Hmm... am I missing something here? I haven’t seen anything on the mw mailing list about a new version release, and the version lifecycle on MediaWiki.org still displays 1.31 as the latest version. To make things even stranger the lifecycle timeline jumps from 1.31 to 1.33 (skipping 1.32 altogether). Anyone have any insight?

AmandaCath changed the status of T3783: Request for New Skin from Open to Stalled.

I’m not sure if this is possible as it is not a standard MediaWiki skin but rather a custom skin that an individual wiki created manually for themselves. As it does not appear to be maintained upstream, it likely is incompatible with Miraheze, but I’ll let the security reviewers have the final say @labster @Samwilson

AmandaCath moved T1670: Test CheckUser (Review/Allow) from Needs Review to Other on the Extensions board.

Okay, status update: The code is definitely workable. It needs to be updated for the latest version(s) of MediaWiki, but that’s the largest issue that I could find. The only other thing that I’ll note is that the current code doesn’t give users with the checkuser-limited permission access to Special:CheckUserLog, which is one of the key elements of the CU extension. I’ll look into adding code to allow a restricted log access where one can only see log entries of checks they have run, and since they will have only run checks on themselves, no PII will be divulged.

Then import the file to your wiki.
