Regex for replacing = codes

Hi, regarding User:Lahwaacz#User:Lahwaacz#Regex_for_replacing_.3D_codes do you intend to use a similar expression with the editor assistant or directly with the bot? In the latter case I think it would be pretty dangerous, for example it would break templates that already use a named parameter, e.g. {{Template|parameter=value}} would be turned into {{Template|1=parameter=value}}. -- Kynikos (talk) 16:57, 21 March 2014 (UTC)

I used it only once and don't have any specific plans, but I'm quite certain I will need to use it again sometimes... Thanks for the warning, I will be cautious. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 17:50, 21 March 2014 (UTC)


About [1] (and [2]) User:Levi0x0x, who should have indeed provided an edit summary, appears to be the developer of the application and the maintainer of the PKGBUILD. I would keep his edit. -- Kynikos (talk) 00:45, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I know - I've seen also bash-player removed, both from wiki and Github (it seems the repo has been recreated from scratch). PodCastXDL has always been available upstream. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 08:20, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Didn't he add it to the list one week ago? [3] Maybe he's found some bug and doesn't want people to use it until he fixes it? Anyway I'm not that interested, we can as well see if/how Levi0x0x reacts. -- Kynikos (talk) 04:32, 6 July 2014 (UTC)


The variables ACTION, INTERFACE, SSID, and Profile are only exported by auto.action and only netctl-auto uses that script. So if your not using netctl-auto then they don't do anything. Captaincurrie (talk) 08:35, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

That may be true, but that's not reason to remove the expansion flag from the page. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 08:45, 27 December 2014 (UTC)

Article discussion prior to deletion argument

On 2015-03-24T13:21:22, Lahwaacz deleted article Firefox/Font_type_and_size.

I believe that it is Arch Linux wiki policy and general wiki policy to have discussions before article deletions. Exceptions that I have known have been for has been instances, for example, like original research, intentional vandalism, sensitive details related to personal biographies, and similar criteria. The reasons given for the deletion do not belong to the noted exceptions and any other reasons that I know:

"ArchWiki is not your blog (inappropriate language, not specific to Firefox, duplicates other pages: Fonts, Font configuration)"

Gently (talk) 14:26, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

The page was not deleted but moved to User:Gen2ly/Firefox/Font_type_and_size. This is not an excuse, just to set things right. This case indeed does not fall into the exceptions you've named, but I believe that low quality is good enough reason to move a page into the userspace. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 15:31, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
The "low quality" quip is unnecessary and I think we as wiki administrators would do good to try and be accurately descriptive particularly on such serious actions. If this action and comment is for personal reasons, please mention so and I'll contact you by email where that discussion would be more appropriate. Otherwise, if can be gotten over please continue to read.
I went to the article the day after and saw initially the notice "This page has been deleted...". This was new to me. I have since learned that moving a page without a redirect would leave this message. This message may bear discussion in similar form in the future but as it is now, this topic is erroneous and considered closed by me. (To deal with the "moving to userspace" reasoning I will take a tangential angle and open a discussion bearing the reasons for the move and attempt to resolve them (in the attempt to be as helpful as possible). If the topic is of interest, please visit and leave a comment if it is desirable there.)
