Hi from Alex brollo[edit]

I took a look to your common.js and I found that you are running boldly eis.js. Ok! This means that you are testing it here into en.source :-)

I'll import your common.js into my one and I'll see what will happen.... I guess, I'll be fashinated by what I'm going to discover!

PS: I use my "test account", User:Alex brollo bis, to test anything new. --Alex brollo (talk) 15:04, 14 October 2016 (UTC)

Ok, I found the first (surely not the last...) issue: while importing your common.js as it is into User:Alex brollo bis/common.js, eis tool doesn't run, since a global object alex={}; (the global object I use anywhere to see what's happening inside my "iffy" and to allow objects sharing among different tools) is need into main javascript namespace. Such a need should be avoided for sure, but presently it is needed. Please add it into your common.js and test eis.js again. --Alex brollo bis (talk) 15:26, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
I moved eis.js here into User:Alex brollo/eis.js, please feel free to use it and edit it as you like, as yours (you've needed privileges for sure). Presently I'm using it into it.source, but I can fastly point again into it.source code if anything goes wrong. I already translated into English somethoing, Iì'll go on adding some comments into the code. --Alex brollo (talk) 07:24, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
@Alex brollo: Sorry for my slowness in replying. I'll let you know how I get on with eis! :-) I'll fork it to User:Samwilson/eis.js for testing. Sam Wilson 15:27, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
As soon as you like.... I'd like to share a couple of other exotic, but running, ideas to support a faster editing; but I feel better to deal one thing at a time. ;-) --Alex brollo (talk) 16:04, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Bot archiving available[edit]

Hi SW, we have Wikisource-bot that is able to archive progressively, if that is of interest. It uses the standard pywikibot script from elsewhere at WMF that archives based on time passed on each section. — billinghurst sDrewth 22:12, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Hm, well maybe if I become more talkative! :-) I've only just needed to archive after 8 years... hehe. I'll keep it in mind though. Sam Wilson 01:12, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
