[edit] DotNetWikiBot

I tried to connect with cs.rodovid over C# and dotnetwikibot, but it not work (connect error). It's possible use dotnetwikibot? It's possible use dotnetwikibot with my account? --kloin 09:12, 7 February 2017 (EET)

  • I never test it. Could you check the version of MediaWiki that bot supports? RD is powered by MW 1.9.3. --Baya 22:17, 8 February 2017 (EET)
    • Thank you. I will try debug dotnetwikibot. Dotnetwikibot is not tested on Rodovid. Probably variable useApi controle access to older version wiki. I will try make it work. --kloin 08:49, 9 February 2017 (EET)
      • Unfortunatly MW 1.9.3 is ten year old (2007-02-20) (too many changes). Are you going to in the near future to upgrade MediaWiki?--kloin 07:52, 10 February 2017 (EET)
  • There so many changes in MW code. I want to do it, but I think I'll have no time for this in nearest future ((( --Baya 17:24, 10 February 2017 (EET)

[edit] The "yellow wall"

Hi Baya!

Please don't forget to answer to Kloin!

We were waiting for you : this is the first of our request. I guess solution is simple for you.

Help Popup behaviour has changed (I think since we are hosted by Amazon, not sure). Help Popups now appears "on mouseover" ! This is a complete disaster! I thought I was the only one crying with these popups, but no. We had several users complaining past weeks, in RD.FR. I tried to teach (in real life) Rodovid to a new user : these popups are a misery to peoples who are not fluent with computers.

Please do something! Yellow Help popups must appears "on mouseclick" and have a close box! Nowadays, new users are quickly facing a Yellow Wall of popups, and they can't close them! Because they open them by accident, and because these popups stay on screen even if user goes to an aother tab…

Was I Clear?

Once again, it's nice to hear about you! --Christophe Tesson - talk. 15:04, 7 February 2017 (EET)

  • It is an old behavior. I did not change it. But I will try to redevelop it on weekends. --Baya 22:19, 8 February 2017 (EET)

"Blin!" I thought it was easy for you, just some clicks… I hope it won't be too much work? --Christophe Tesson - talk. 11:20, 11 February 2017 (EET)

  • It was not so hard )) DONE. --Baya 22:23, 11 February 2017 (EET) ("Blin" is a childish word for "blyad" == "fuck") ;)
    • Thank you ! (My children speak russian as well as french ! Not me…) --Christophe Tesson - talk. 10:38, 12 February 2017 (EET)

[edit] Alphabet

In the list of users, the order of the cyrillic letters seems to be unusual :
There is a similar situation in the list of countries. Dn Gov (d) 00:00, 13 February 2017 (EET)

Also, is it possible to translate the names of the alphabets in the FamilyList ? Dn Gov (d) 00:00, 13 February 2017 (EET)

  • Do you have any idea of when the order was changed? --Baya 20:47, 18 February 2017 (EET)
Not really. I began to notice that for countries some months ago (maybe one year?). Dn Gov (d) 21:00, 18 February 2017 (EET)
  • It's a pity --Baya 00:00, 19 February 2017 (EET)

[edit] Blocage

Bonjour, Baya. Le 27 janvier j'ai bloqué l'utilisateur Brachid après l'avoir prévenu et qui entrait des fiches sans aucune date ni lieu et évidemment sans source et ce sur de nombreuses générations. Le 12 février l'utilisateur Inestj (avec la même adresse IP) a frénétiquement créé des fiches sur de nombreuses générations sans date ni lieu et toujours sans source. Je l'ai donc bloqué. Nous lui avons proposé (elle est tunisienne) d'utiliser Rd.Ar, ou les règles de saisie sont à ce jour inexistantes. --alain 19:55, 18 February 2017 (EET)

thank you. --Baya 20:48, 18 February 2017 (EET)

maybe it will be better to give him possibility to finish his work? --Baya 21 février 2017 à 00:12 (EET)
Just do it!--alain 09:34, 21 February 2017 (EET)
I apply simply the rules that we settled. With a lot of moderation!--alain 13:36, 22 February 2017 (EET)
Dear Sir, I do not see good reasons to have a change of mind. Sorry.--alain 20:35, 22 February 2017 (EET)

[edit] Indonesia

Someone has sent us a message, asking the deletion of 4 records created about him and his family : id:Orang:236907, id:Orang:237998, id:Orang:238034, id:Orang:238035. Dn Gov (d) 00:00, 20 February 2017 (EET)

  • You have removed information about, thank you. If it is enough - ok. --Baya 00:59, 20 February 2017 (EET)
I thought it would be enough, but in another message that person insisted for a complete deletion. And I don't have admin rights for Rodovid ID… Dn Gov (d) 01:30, 20 February 2017 (EET)
Also I don't have access to the function "Special:CheckUser" that THLA used (neither on Rodovid FR nor on Rodovid BR). Can you change it? Thanks a lot. Dn Gov (d) 22:00, 20 February 2017 (EET)
  • both done --Baya 00:06, 21 February 2017 (EET)
Thank you!
(Unfortunately it does not work, or I miss something : it always ends with the message "Unable to add log entry". Anyway it is not very important). Dn Gov (d) 00:00, 23 February 2017 (EET)

[edit] Тяжёлый запрос

Если сделать запрос на, то есть без параметра p, в котором указывается место, то сервер на некоторое время подвиснет и будет отдавать 504 на все запросы.

  • Ага, фактически сортированая выборка всей базы ))) Давно писал, и тогда еще решил не разруливать. Сейчас со временем очень тяжело ((. --Baya 18:44, 24 March 2017 (EET)
  • Спасибо, очень полезная правка. --Baya 22:11, 29 March 2017 (EEST)

[edit] Wikidata

I talked of Rodovid to Ivan A. Krestinin a bot manager for Wikidata (the system organizing language links in Wikipedia), and he asked in return questions about compatibility.
I am unable to answer myself but I am sure that you know everything about these aspects. Dn Gov (d) 21:00, 13 May 2017 (EEST)

  1. I do not understand the situation.
    if it was possible 2 years ago
    • ... I have seen that on 5 January 2015 KrBot added numerous links to records of our site...
    why such question appears now?
    • ... Rodovid uses CC 2.5, WD uses CC0. Are these license compatible and allows data import ...
  2. where did you find links added by KrBot? (I'm just curious :) )

--Baya 22:55, 14 May 2017 (EEST)

I have only noticed this week that links to Rodovid pages had been added in Wikidata. For example, if you go to the Wikipedia page of Yaroslav the Wise, and if you click on "Редагувати посилання" at the end of the list of languages it brings to the Wikidata page with Rodovid among external links.
Some of the links added are listed in the history of Krbot.
After that I saw that other records of Rodovid had not yet been linked to in Wikidata, so I asked Ivan Krestinin if he could add them (I don't know how his bot works and why it added only some links).
Having these Wikidata links could be a good way to reach quickly Rodovid pages about famous people (and to avoid some duplicates in the different languages of Rodovid). Dn Gov (d) 01:00, 15 May 2017 (EEST)

Thank you. The KrBot have imported to WikiData only already existed links to RD from Russian & Ukrainian wikipedias. The bot only adds the link to RD page, and do not copy any information from RD. So I do not understand the question about license. --Baya 13:28, 15 May 2017 (EEST)

Krbot re-started to add links to Rodovid. Some of these Wikipedia pages were already tagged with a Rodovid template in several languages. Dn Gov (d) 03:00, 16 May 2017 (EEST)

Previously bot imported data from Wikipedia. Now you suggest to import data from Rodovid site. — answer (copied) from Ivan A. Krestinin 21:28, 15 May 2017 (EEST)
This list can not be used directly. It has many unreliable records. My bot need account for getting page source. Could you create it? — question (copied) from Ivan A. Krestinin 21:54, 15 May 2017 (EEST)

Is it OK to create an account for him ? Dn Gov (d) 22:00, 16 May 2017 (EEST)

As you wish :) I think it may be good cooperation. --Baya 08:38, 17 May 2017 (EEST)

[edit] Удаление умерших

Некоторые участники, требуя удалить личные данные родственников, также настаивают и на удалении данных умерших родственников. Согласно российскому законодательству потомки являются правопреемниками умерших родственников и в том числе имеют право от их лица настаивать на сокрытии личных данных. Полагаю, что в украинском законодательстве аналогично. С другой стороны мало кто может подтвердить подобное родство, особенно если речь идёт о пра-прародителях. Получается, что некое лицо, о котором ещё неизвестно, что оно вообще является тем, за кого себя выдаёт, требует удалить записи, связь с которыми оно вряд ли сможет подтвердить. Какова политика в этом случае? — Dionys 11:34, 16 June 2017 (EEST)

  • На ваше усмотрение )) Я бы, если дедушка/бабушка (и легко прослеживаются) - удалил бы. Во всех остальных случаях если записи добавлены этим человеком, то он их сам может поудалять. Если настаивают на удалении прабаушек и прадедушек и дальше, то можно еще и потролить. Типа спросить у них сканы паспортов и метрик )))
  • Подобные особомыслящие люди в 100% случаев гуглятся по вконтактам, однокласникам, фейсбукам и прочей социалке ((

[edit] Pridėti žmogų

Hello !
Lithuanian user Audronaša would like a correction for the system message lt:MediaWiki:Rd addperson.
It should be written :
Pridėti žmogų
Can you change it? Thanks. Dn Gov (d) 02:01, 22 August 2017 (EEST)

  • done --Baya 23:40, 22 August 2017 (EEST)

[edit] Hello!

Privit Baya!

How are you? Did uou have any hollydays this summer? We were ten days in Moscow with my familly, in august. Really nice.

Some new users make Rodovid.FR rolling its slow run. Strange but interresting study about soldiers is developped by a new user in Rodovid.EN.

As usual : slowly but surely.

Ah uh… on the other hand… huh… I've blocked Almoustine… one more time… I guess now it's not really important… not sure…

Complete transcription of Tamerville is now rolling from 1624 to 1864 : more than 18.000 precisally sourced records !

Have a nice day ! --Christophe Tesson - talk. 16:13, 24 August 2017 (EEST)


why did you delete private persons and sourced records added by Almoustine? --Baya 22:18, 27 August 2017 (EEST)


If you think these records are good things for Rodovid, no problem, it's possible to unerase them. But we are several users thinking it's a very bad idea. (See: Stop trolling RD campaign !, en:User_talk:Koavf#Back_to_reason etc.

Here is a good abstract of what are these contributions :

I didn't wrote this, and it's funny, but true.

We all know that this particular user built herself a pathologycally mythomaniac genealogic tree, with connections with almost all noble european families, specialy from Scandinavia and Normandy.
Plus making arbitrary connections from these families with antiques families, and then from Bible or legends etc. Using methods described in Common Genealogy Mistakes. I copy / paste :

  • "You are Related to People Who Have the Same Family Name"
  • "You Have Royalty in Your Family"
  • "Family Trees Can Go Back 1,000 Years"
  • "Citations Are Not Necessary"
  • "Ignore Minor Things Like Spelling"
  • "Fill in the Blanks"
  • "Dates Are Fluid"


If you want I can watch precisely last erased records (with help of french users, I must not do that alone) to correct what is possible to correct. But there won't be a lot to save.

This ask the question "what can be a collaobrative Genealogy site?". It seems that we don't have the answer yet.

Friendly yours --Christophe Tesson - talk. 17:44, 28 August 2017 (EEST)

Ok. I accept this decision. --Baya 21:34, 30 August 2017 (EEST)

Ok. Not particullary proud of this… --Christophe Tesson - talk. 15:29, 2 September 2017 (EEST)

[edit] Alphabets

Hello !
Does Rodovid have system messages to translate the names of the alphabets (for example in the page uk:Special:FamilyList) ?
Dn Gov (d) 21:00, 21 September 2017 (EEST)

  • They are hard-coded. It is very approximate naming. I'll look at it and refactor it to be more usable in nearest month. --Baya 18:45, 24 September 2017 (EEST)
O.K. :) Dn Gov (d) 01:00, 25 September 2017 (EEST)

[edit] Ссылки-сноски

Привет. Если в тексте поля «Заметки» профиля персоны вставить ссылку с помощью тега <ref> на одну и ту же сноску несколько раз, то обратная ссылка от сноски будет сформирована только для второй и последующей ссылок, но не для первой. Например, в тексте 3 раза встречается ссылка на сноску:

    <ref name="source">...</ref>
    <ref name="source"/>
    <ref name="source"/>

со сноски обратных ссылок будет всего 2:


[edit] Sources

  1. 1.1 1.2 ...

  • а зачем вставлять сноску на одно и тоже в одном месте? --Baya 21:08, 4 October 2017 (EEST)
Здесь сноски вместе только для примера. В реальности они, конечно, раскиданы по тексту. Но результат тот же. — Dionys 23:12, 4 October 2017 (EEST)
  • Понял, нет обратного линка на первое упоминание сноски. Посмотрю --Baya 22:26, 5 October 2017 (EEST)

[edit] Happy new year

Privit Yaroslav !

I wish you a happy new year, and a merry Xmas, to you and all of yours !

Thanks a lot for all you did with Rodovid ! --Christophe Tesson - talk. 16:03, 26 December 2017 (EET)

Best wishes too for 2018!
Could you unprotect the Dutch Main page ? The statistics need to be updated. I asked the admin Svdmolen (the one with the most recent contributions) but I got no answer. Thanks ! Dn Gov (d) 02:00, 22 January 2018 (EET)
We're wirying about you… Is everything OK? Have you any problems? --Christophe Tesson - talk. 13:06, 3 February 2018 (EET)


  • I have missed e-mail about the page changes. Main page unprotected.
  • Thhank you, no any problems, just everything is unchangeable ...

--Baya 22:08, 17 February 2018 (EET)

O.K. By the way, the number of records for persons is now over 1 million (since 2 February). Бу́дьмо ! - Dn Gov (d) 22:00, 18 February 2018 (EET)
Oooooooooooooone millioooooooooooooooooooooon !!!
Anyway, glad to read you ! I was worrying (and not wirying…) --Christophe Tesson - talk. 15:45, 19 February 2018 (EET)

[edit] Big mistake

Privit Yaroslav :

How are you ?

I've made a big mistake : I've erased several Images description pages, though they were used :

  • Image:Sophia Karkovna et Alexei Alexandrovitch.jpg
  • Image:Sophia Karlovna Rimsky-Korsakoff.jpg
  • Image:Cours supérieur pour les femmes. Le bâtiment principal sur le terrain de la Vierge.jpg

The user told me she don't have any copies of these images…

Is there any way to recover these files on Rodvoid ?

Have a nice day… --Christophe Tesson - talk. 09:59, 7 March 2018 (EET)

Hello !
Can I have sysop rights for Rodovid Engine?
(Some system messages haven't yet been added : editing form, preferences…).

А також може ви знизити захист на головній сторінці сербської мови? Я хотів би додати повідомлення про створення нових облікових записів.
Я залишив повідомлення на сторінці сербського адміністратора Baron, але він не відповідає. Очевидно, він є у вікі-паузіі з 2006 року.
