How so?  Does the "redirected from" notice not appear at all, or does
the wrong one appear?  I can imagine that there would be some cases
that would get messed up no matter what (e.g., loading the same page
twice from two different redirects at once), but I should think most
cases could be made to work properly.

I can most certainly believe it. It's not like the messages files are
reviewed before they're released.

Localised special page names were added to zh-hans shortly before the
branch point:

<http://svn.wikimedia.org/viewvc/mediawiki/branches/REL1_14/phase3/languages/messages/MessagesZh_hans.php?view=diff&r1=45302&r2=45303>

No similar list was added for zh-hant or zh-tw, so the simplified list
is used for all of them. There was no localised $specialPageAliases
for zh-* in 1.13.0 so it seems likely that the English names were used
at that time.

It would be helpful if you could provide a translation for these
special page names into Traditional Chinese. This translation can be
included in 1.14.1.

Re: How to calculate word count in an article according to contributors?

Thank you Robert,

In fact what I want is a mechanism to evaluate the contribution of every
author. What I think now is to compute the word count of every author, then
the system could give a score to them.

Is there a better way to evaluate the contribution of the authors?

Thanks!

Autopromotion and revoking

Hi everyone,

there is a discussion going on on Commons about a rollback policy. This 
involves deciding how users should be given this permission. We have 
been discussing autopromotion, but Andrew told us on IRC that he thinks 
it's not possible to revoke autopromoted rights. Revoking rollback 
permission is very important to take care of 
edit-warring/mass-rollbacking troublemakers, so we don't want to 
surrender this possibility. Can anyone comment on this, is it 
effectively impossible to revoke automatically given rights?

Thanks and best regards,

ChrisiPK

It would be possible, although kind of hackish.  The procedure would
be to create a "norollback" group that can be manually granted and
revoked, then make the autopromote criteria for rollback require that
the user not be in the "norollback" group.  Possibly a nicer way of
doing this would be good, but it should be good enough for now.

Or it can be done like FlaggedRevs did with the Editor group.

Which was? I didn't thing FlaggedRevs had anything to do with
promotions, it just has a few permissions and you use the standard
methods of granting them.

FlaggedRevs, instead of improving the existing autopromote
architecture, decided to create its own with the ability to revoke
autopromoted groups. It would have been nice if, instead of
implementing this in an extension which had nothing to do with
autopromotion, the improvements in question were made to core.

Not quite. Have a look at 
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FlaggedRevs and you will see, 
that there is $wgFlaggedRevsAutopromote to control when a user is 
autopromoted. I initially thought, that FlaggedRevs would use the 
standard way for autopromotion, which is why I took for granted that 
this is just what autopromotion works like. Turns out it is not.
