@Ahmsaqib you can also just use regular Special:Nuke to mass-delete pages created by any author in any namespace (assuming that the pages aren’t ancient). The Special:Nuke form has an option to limit pages to be deleted to certain namespaces.

AmandaCath changed the status of T4015: Adding wikibase client from Open to Stalled.

Security review is needed, although I will say from the beginning that the fact that the extension docs on MediaWiki.org says that its only compatible with the “master” version of MediaWIki (i.e. the latest development and WMF version which we aren’t running) is a red flag. However it does appear that there are versions of the extension available for older versions of MediaWiki, so I’d assume that would include the current stable and LTS versions.

AmandaCath changed the status of T4003: Extension:IframePage from Open to Stalled.

The MediaWiki documentation page says that the extension was last updated in 2014, which is out-of-date for a production system like Miraheze that is concerned about security and bugs and the like. However, MediaWiki docs have a notorious reputation for being out of date themselves and thus reporting incorrect information, so I’ll let the reviewers take a look.

Security review of the skin is required. However, the fact that the MediaWiki documention page says “Status: Unkown” doesn’t inspire my confidence. Also it appears that this is a customized Wikia skin and so I don’t know if it would be compatible with Miraheze or not.

AmandaCath closed T3998: Wiki session keeps getting invalidated (after short period of time before cookie expires) as Invalid.

Unfortunately this is a known problem that has been reported many times before, with no solution able to be determined. Usually when you receive “this session has been cancelled due to suspected hijacking” you can simply refresh the page, or sometimes close your browser and start it up again, and then log back in, and you should be successful. Alternatively, if you don’t want to worry about it, next time you log in successfully, check the “keep me logged in” checkbox (assuming that you’re not using a shared device with other people).

AmandaCath added a comment to Blog Post: ManageWikiNamespaces: Collating Pages More Easily.

So the next thing we know, someone (whether it be us or upstream) will be saying that we should make all restricted special pages read-only to all users... which means that we’d be saying we should make pages like Special:Block and Special:DeletedContributions available to be read by anyone? No, that’s not good at all. And then, taking it to an extreme step, should we say that even the most restricted like Special:CheckUser should be readable by everyone? Making the pages readable to everyone only opens up more potential loopholes and security/privacy risks. If you are not authorized to use a feature than you are not authorized to use it - period. That includes viewing it.
