Proposed deletion of Members of the European Parliament 2014–19[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Members of the European Parliament 2014–19 has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

This page is redundant to the article List of members of the European Parliament, 2014–19. Both pages provide breakdowns, only the other one is more thorough.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. -- Kndimov (talk) 22:10, 6 June 2014 (UTC)

Process question on PROD[edit]

Hi Christian75,

I saw that you declined my prod on LNX Code 8. I'm happy with the article turning into a redirect, but based on your edit summary I'm pretty sure I've misunderstood something. What little information is in the "code 8" article has been added to the Elonex One article. I used the word "merge" there, which might not have been appropriate. What am I missing here? Thanks, Lesser Cartographies (talk) 14:56, 26 June 2014 (UTC)

Hi Lesser Cartographies - If you compare the current version of LNX Code 8 with this edit Elonex ONE it looks like it has been copy/pasted (merged). I think a redirect would be a good solution because LNX Code 8 is mentioned at Elonex ONE. It sounds like you know that the content of Wikipedia is copyrighted. (otherwise look at Wikipedia:Merge and delete) Christian75 (talk) 15:56, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for the pointer—I can see the confusion I caused now. I'll go ahead and make the page a redirect. Thanks for the help! Lesser Cartographies (talk) 03:47, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

re Infobox element: what are yo trying to say?[edit]

re {{Infobox element/sandbox}}: what are yo trying to say? And why this way?-DePiep (talk) 22:33, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I am trying not to force the size of the image to be 250px. It should be set by user preferences, which could be from 120 to 300px. I know it isnt finished, it has to check if the image is defined, but the size is working. Christian75 (talk) 22:37, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
DePiep, btw. I have tested it. If I change thumbnail size (in Special:Preferences) the size of the image change too. Christian75 (talk) 22:41, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
As far as I can follow. 1. Again, why this way? (editing a running porocess?), and 2. "should be set by user preferences" -- user (editor) pref is an exception, to be motivated (i.e., when user/editor edits the page's infobox input). It primarily should be set by the meta {infobox element}, defaults & prefereneces. -DePiep (talk) 22:47, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Isnt that the way to do it - its a sandbox? Why do you want to force the size of the image? On my screen you make the image smaller. Wikipedia:Thumb#Thumbnail_sizes says thumb should be used, and we shouldnt force any size of images. And MOS:INFOBOX contains nothing about size of images. Where do you get from that it should be size of image should be set by the infobox? Christian75 (talk) 22:55, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
To continue at WT:ELEM. -DePiep (talk) 23:01, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Listen. As we speak (actually, as I speak), I am editing & working myself with that sandbox and its effects. Intensively, with dozens of pages to follow. If you cannot communicate about what you do, I'll revert yours everything. What I don't understand, will go. -DePiep (talk) 23:15, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

DePiep, I am using module:infoboxImage which is normal to use in infoboxes to display images. The size worked after I removed _ from - I think its a bug! Btw. its the same parameter I proposed to do with {{chembox}} Christian75 (talk) 23:27, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
As I said: listen (i.e., read my concerns). You are editing the same set of pages I am working with. You just don't do that without communication. OK? -DePiep (talk) 23:36, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
From documentation, "Editors can experiment in this template's sandbox (edit | diff) and testcases (edit) pages.", otherwise move it to your user space.

New huggle 3.1 is going to be released soon[edit]

Hi Christian75, we are to release a new major version of huggle, but we did receive almost no feedback from our beta testing team, which you are a part of (see It would be of a great help if you could download it (if you have windows, all you need to do is getting and putting it to a folder where you have installed huggle) and test it. You can always get a help with making it @ #huggle connect!

Major changes:

  • Multisite support - you can now log in to unlimited number of wikis in 1 huggle session and get a huge queue of all edits made to these wikis. This is good for smaller projects which gets overlooked often.
  • Ranged diffs - you can select multiple revisions and get a huge diff that display all changes done to them.
  • Fixes of most of bug reports we had so far

In case you found a bug, please report it to bugzilla: thank you! Petrb (talk) 10:19, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
