@DannyS712: Sorry, I should have used Sandbox for experimenting. Will ensure that it won't happen again

February 2019

Hello, I'm Donner60. An edit you recently made to Wikipedia:MEDSKL/Acute vision loss seemed to be a test and has been removed. If you want more practice editing, the sandbox is the best place to do so. If you think I made a mistake, or if you have any questions, you can leave me a message on my talk page. Thank you.

Demo edits?

Your pattern of editing at Wikipedia:VideoWiki/Dengue_fever seems odd. If you're really testing the system, couldn't you use your sandbox rather than article space? — soupvector (talk) 13:29, 6 September 2019 (UTC)[]

@soupvector Ohh, [VideoWiki] is a new project, I have been giving a lot of demos explaining the concept. I only make demo edit to this file, and more precisely the same edit (editing the first line).I revert the edit after the demo. However, you are right, Its better to show a sandbox edit, I guess. --Pratik.pks (talk) 14:08, 6 September 2019 (UTC)-[]
I am glad you're doing demos, but I would not want anyone to see the demo and think that doing such edits in article space is good practice - it's not. — soupvector (talk) 14:18, 6 September 2019 (UTC)[]

Google Code-In 2019 is coming - please mentor some documentation tasks!


Google Code-In, Google-organized contest in which the Wikimedia Foundation participates, starts in a few weeks. This contest is about taking high school students into the world of opensource. I'm sending you this message because you recently edited a documentation page at the English Wikipedia.

I would like to ask you to take part in Google Code-In as a mentor. That would mean to prepare at least one task (it can be documentation related, or something else - the other categories are Code, Design, Quality Assurance and Outreach) for the participants, and help the student to complete it. Please sign up at the contest page and send us your Google account address to, so we can invite you in!

From my own experience, Google Code-In can be fun, you can make several new friends, attract new people to your wiki and make them part of your community.

If you have any questions, please let us know at

Thank you!

Videowiki assistance request

Hi Pratik. A script I made (Wikipedia:VideoWiki/WikiJournal_PDF_formatting) doesn't seem to be functioning when I try to preview it. Could you check and see if I've dome something wrong? I've previously just uploaded a full video with timedtext (example), but I'd like to use videowiki since it should be more flexible. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 05:58, 11 June 2020 (UTC) ---Will look into it and fix it by Sunday? will keep you updated.@T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2405:204:5686:7DB7:2829:D6CB:230B:B9EC (talk) 06:18, 11 June 2020 (UTC) []

Seems to be working now so thank you if it was your doing, or perhaps I just needed to be more patient. The next issue is that in this example, videowiki skips to the next section as soon as it finishes reading out the words, rather than playing the full media clip. Is there a way to get it to play the full media clip before moving to the next section? (also noted here). Thanks again! T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 01:43, 14 June 2020 (UTC)[]
Yes, we fixed that issue @T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk :) Hmm, that's a good feature - we will work on that and get back to you by the end of this week (20th hopefully). Will keep you updated on this or for all I know - you might find the solution fixed even before I mention it. Pratik.pks (talk) 14:53, 14 June 2020 (UTC)[]
Hi there, did that feature happen to get added? I'm still keen to get this script working fully before I start making more with lots of video clips. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 12:00, 5 July 2020 (UTC)[]
@T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)Apologies for the late reply. Yes, you can now add a video without text, and it will work :) Do let me know if you have any other feature requests or if you face any issues. Apologies again for the dealy in getting backPratik.pks (talk) 13:55, 16 August 2020 (UTC)[]
Aha, that's a useful work-around. Ideally, it'd be possible to have a 30 second video clip with text displayed for the first 10 seconds, then the next 20 seconds silent. For example this section (55s video, 16s text) - do you think that'll be possible? Otherwise I'll use alternating static text slides then silent video clips as the backup option. T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 01:21, 17 August 2020 (UTC)[]
@T.Shafee(Evo&Evo): So users normally drag and drop an entire Commons video which is usally very long (Example: A 2 minutes video) to a 10 second text slide. So we automatically take the first 10 seconds of the video and don't show the remaining part. Ideally,if everyone just puts the appropriate amount of video bit - it will be ideal to do you just mentioned.

Maybe a workaround for your use case could be that you crop the first 10 seconds of your video and put it along with the text and the remaning video you can keep it as a video slide (Without any text) as we now support that. Thoughts?Pratik.pks (talk) 06:04, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[]

That's probably a doable workaround, but of course it'll make it more complex to edit (e.g. if the text amount is decreased, parts of the first cropped video would be omitted). T.Shafee(Evo&Evo)talk 06:10, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[]
Ahh good point. Pratik.pks (talk) 06:13, 18 August 2020 (UTC)[]
