Heyo. Any chance you know what needs to be done to re-enable navpopups here? You removed it in 2015, and I'm hoping it's as simple as just

but possibly not, because wikitech.... Thanks! Quiddity (talk) 13:04, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Oh, and related, could we install Hotcat here, too? (I.e. are there any reasons not to, or should I just boldly request it, and potentially others, on the gadget page?) Ta!Quiddity (talk) 14:22, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

I don't remember the circumstances around that and I can't install it anyway (I'm not currently a local administrator and due to this being a non-SUL wiki, GEI does not extend here). This kind of gadget should just work exactly the same way as it does on other wikis, so your steps should work. --Alex Monk (talkcontribs) 18:48, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

Wiki Replica c3.labsdb to be shutdown Wednesday 2017-12-13

A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). This server will be taken out of service on Wednesday 2017-12-13.

Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the new Wiki Replica cluster. The c3.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until they are updated to use a new service name.

Tools that are hosting self-created data on c3.labsdb will lose that data if it is not migrated to tools.db.svc.eqiad.wmflabs (also known as tools.labsdb). If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c3.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at or phab:P6313.

Please see Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 20:38, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
