So, does merge work now? Can I propose more users to be merged on SN?

That's how we'd do to make sure nobody is stealing accounts (as it would happen if someone created a temp account and then asked on the Steward's noticeboard):

I should learn to search before opening a task, sorry.

I thought so. Nothing can be done apparently. The case is close, thanks anyway.
I mean, if a file was changed, the old versions aren't there; it's only reported on the page's history, that's it. Maybe previous versions of files were not dowloaded at all by Teamwiki, I'm just asking.
Thanks. I see past revisions of the file (not the page) are lost, there's only the last editor and the laste version of the file. Before I open a futile task, can something be done about it?

Great! I'll fix the rest, it's just a few pages. Thanks a lot, this task can be closed now; if more inconsistencies show up I'll open a new task.
Thanks again. There's a few more things to do. I found a lot of talk pages that ended up in the main namespace: pages starting with Discussioni manuali should be moved to "Discussioni nonbooks" and lose the prefix; the ones starting with Discussioni test should be moved to "Discussioni noniversità" and lose the prefix too.
Can confirm. Yay! Now only "Discussioni nonnotizie" and "Discussioni nondizionario" are missing.
PPS: apparently the articles starting with "NonNotizie" are in the main namespace (check it) and for some reason are redirected to the "Nonnotizie" namespace, which is empty.
PS: the problem is only related to the ns "Nonnotizie", "Discussioni nonnotizie", and "Discussioni nondizionario".
"Nondizionario" is ok.
Yes. The problem here is that pages were imported with the old namespaces but we can't reach them because Mediawiki points to the new ones, where the pages don't exist yet. As in the example above, try clicking on NonNotizie:"Bidone d'oro" 2009; trionfa Felipe Melo, sul podio Quaresma e Tiago: you'll end in "Nonnotizie:"Bidone d'oro" 2009; trionfa Felipe Melo, sul podio Quaresma e Tiago", which doesn't exist yet.
Not yet. Articles in ns "Nonnotizie", "Discussioni nonnotizie", and "Discussioni nondizionario" are still out or reach.
Thanks. What about this:
Hey, guys, any update?

Ok, so we decided to change the ns "Nonversità" into "Noniversità". I've updated the task accordingly.
Good! I just tested moving a page and its 72 subpages and it worked.
I thought all namespace allowed subpages, anyway yes, both the original location and the target location are in namespaces that seem to allow subpages, see for example https://nonciclopedia.org/wiki/Nonciclopedia:Cimitero/Articolo_della_settimana/Archivio and https://nonciclopedia.org/wiki/Cimitero:Nonciclopedia:Articolo_della_settimana/Archivio/10
Now it works, thanks!
I tried yesterday and yes, it still happens.

Care to explain why not being on git is a problem? Just out of curiosity.
Well, luckily enough it's just a bunch of pages, I can move them manually.
Thanks! Please wait a little before moving Test to Nonversità, we're probably about to change its name.
Wouldn't that prevent all users from re-creating their account because it already exists? EDIT: ... and therefore open a task here? Please tell me the steps users should follow, exactly.

Nov 16 2018
Ok, I'll wait.
I don't really know what that means, but how am I supposed to administer a wiki if I can't even delete single pages?
Nov 12 2018
I'd like an update on this.
In the meanwhile there's an issue with namespaces that could be probably fixed easily. We used to have a namespace named "NonNotizie" and we asked for a new namespace named almost the same, "Nonnotizie", except for the third "n", which is not capitalized; now, the pages starting with "NonNotizie" exist in the main ns but clicking on a link opens the wrong page, the one with the same title but starting with "Nonnotizie", which of course doesn't exist.
There is probably some conflict with namespaces. Would you please move such pages in the correct ns before doing the other things I asked? It's the only pages I can't move myself because of that inconsistency.
Care to explain in layperson terms?
I can't even use NukePDL:

I hope it will be possible to fix histories so that images won't be all attributed to mr. 127.0.0.1 in the file's page.
Nov 10 2018
Exactly (images, videos, audio etc.), not pages themselves, that are already imported; if you look at https://nonciclopedia.org/w/index.php?title=Speciale%3APrefissi&prefix=&namespace=6 you can see file pages were already imported but there's no actual file, just the page itself with history, categories etc. Then maybe it would need a script to "bond" images with the related File pages, create the history with thumbnails that appears at the bottom of the page etc., but I don't really know.
This still happens after the new import of the new XML dump. Any update?
No, it's only possible with WikiTeam. Anyway, IIRC the syntax error came after importing images, maybe you could try importing images only (not the pages in the File namespace, they were already imported) and see if any error shows up?
I can try but first I I'd like to know why I should because I'm on a limited data plan and every GB is precious.
I see the wiki is online again and pages with full histories and user contribs are imported. Good! Two things:
Nov 8 2018
In case it's still possible (if not, never mind) I'd like if you imported pages directly from Wikia because I just requested an updated dump, just wait until the date is 2018-11-08; but that dump doesn't include images, which should still be uploaded from the XML dump I provided.
Thanks a lot, even if I barely understand what you people are talking about here ;) But let's give it a try:
Nov 7 2018
It's the only one I know. BTW I said "temporarily", just for importing pages, and then upgrade to 1.31 again after the import. About the money needed to get a larger database?
Nope, I'm the only user who can edit pages and I only edited a few things in the MediaWiki namespace. BTW the wikia dump is not ideal because it doesn't provide images, and in fact you imported a ton of pages that we didn't even want imported (that's why I provided a dump in the first place).
Just gave it a try but nope, again an error:
Statistics are still erroneous: only the first one about content pages changed and it gives 171 more pages more than it should, while the rest stayed the same.
Nov 6 2018
Nov 4 2018
Ok, it doesn't matter much. What about this bug?
The usual way to show edits is Username (links to user's page) (talk | contribs | block), not Username (links to contribs) (talk). Can this be fixed?
I'd rather have the old behavior because 99,99% of users will never sign up and histories would be barely usable; actual edit counts could be fixed by using the latest script only for the minority of users who will sign up.
Also, now my contribs show multiple instances of the same edit, see https://nonciclopedia.org/w/index.php?limit=500&title=Speciale%3AContributi&contribs=user&target=Wedhro&namespace=&tagfilter=&start=&end=2018-08-15
Excuse me, but yesterday histories linked to user's pages (including users not signed up yet) and now they don't. Obviously something changed.
As I said, the vast majority of users will never sign up because they're inactive, and the ones who are active will sign up erratically. Before importing a page would just link to the user's pages no matter if it existed or not, I don't understand why all of the sudden this became so difficult.
It works for my edit count but now page histories show a plain >Username instead of the links to the user's page, talk etc. For an example see https://nonciclopedia.org/w/index.php?title=Governo_ombra&action=history
Nov 3 2018
I see histories now link to user's pages but edits are not assigned to the user's edit count or contribution history; see for example my own, which stops at june 2018 (I created my account in 2007): https://nonciclopedia.org/w/index.php?title=Speciale:Contributi/Wedhro&offset=&limit=500&target=Wedhro
Nov 2 2018
Can I get a final word on this? It would be a gigantic bummer for users to lose all their edits (not to mention the uninformative page histories) after I told them they wouldn't lose anything. And it's not just about my community: how many people would want to move here if they were told there are so many issues? "We can't do anything" won't cut it, guaranteed.
I'm not sure I got what you meant, but it's just like I put it above (I will use my own username for the example): if in the history it's imported>Wedhro it should get assigned to user Wedhro no matter if he got an account on the wiki yet or not. Same for any other prefix, such as it>Wedhro (I used "it" as a prefix for the few pages I imported myself, just because it's mandatory to write something).
Whoa. I'll install MassEditRegex but I really hope this situation won't break more things.
Pages were imported by the staff and I had no control on that.
Oct 28 2018
The new namespaces I asked for were already added, thanks. I will only need to move pages starting with "OldNamespace:Title" to the new namespaces, but that requires the import to get finished. Then I'll need a ton of other changes but let's make one little step at the time.
I have no idea what the above means. I can only tell the import in the main namespace ends at the letter O and that the pages in old namespaces (which should go into the main one since they don't exist in the new wiki) were not imported at all.
OK, I'll wait.
... but it isn't live yet, isn't it? Compare https://nonciclopedia.org/wiki/Special:Statistics with https://nonciclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Statistics and you'll see there's still a lot of pages (and some files) missing.
Oct 23 2018
Ok, I didn't knew it. So that means we won't be able to move to the new wiki until more money comes in?
Maybe you should warn people before they start moving their wikis because now we're stuck with a wiki that nobody wants to edit anymore since we thought we were about to leave, and a new wiki that is not ready and won't be for who knows how long. I don't think the community will survive this and I wish I knew before starting this process.
I can understand this kind of issues but the dump I provided (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UbDuh0KW8xnYoadRtPkVK6CHy-RhnhNK/view?usp=sharing) is not 50 GB but 7,7 GB, and files were already uploaded together with 63,623 pages out of 171,977, so maybe there's only 3 GB left to upload. Are you sure you're uploading that dump? We don't want the whole wiki, just what we provided as a dump.
Oct 16 2018
After 6 days there's still no sign of progress. Can you tell me something so I can tell the users?
Oct 10 2018
Thanks, everything is ok now. Friendly reminder: import is still being delayed, see T3637.
Oct 9 2018
Notice how talk namespaces ending in "talk" instead of starting with "Discussioni" doesn't seems to be language-related. Here's how I see Special:Search in Italian: http://i.imgur.com/AuxurQi.png - Here's how I see it in Spanish: http://i.imgur.com/eaEyMsf.png - And here's Japanese: http://i.imgur.com/zywa4Nx.png
Any update? I can't start moving pages to new namespaces until they're fixed.
Sep 27 2018
This is taking too much time. People are losing interest in the wiki because editing the old one is pointless, and editing the new one is impossible until the transfer is done, so they're no longer showing up. Can I get an update on what's going on, so at least I can tell something to the users?
Sep 22 2018
I mean, all default namespaces are already "Discussioni file", "Discussioni MediaWiki" and so on, so if custom ones display the english form (ending with "talk" instead of starting with "Discussioni") maybe there's something wrong in the configuration or such.
Sep 20 2018
Sep 19 2018
I know, but I do have Italian as the selected language: http://imgur.com/utewgm2l.png
There's a few mistakes: talk pages are named "XYZ talk" instead of "Discussioni XYZ"; "Portal" and related talk ns should be "Portale", with a final "e"; ""Progretto" and related talk ns should be "Progetto", without the middle "r"; and "Cimitero" has no associated talk page ("Discussioni Cimitero"). Also, " Nonversita" should have an accented final "a" i.e. "Nonversità", but maybe that's just not doable.
Sep 11 2018
Sep 10 2018
I added two more namespaces in the task:
- 2010 Cimitero
- 2011 Discussioni cimitero
@Reception123 Ok, don't worry, it took me a week to download it and a night to upload it, I expected it to be a lenghty operation. Please note it includes images.
@Reception123 I uploaded the archived dump in Google Drive (8,1 GB), here's the link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UbDuh0KW8xnYoadRtPkVK6CHy-RhnhNK
@Reception123 Yes, I confirm I need the deletion of the whole wiki. The actual content will be restored via a XML dump and users will subscribe again.
