Barnstar for you![edit]

Template:Infobox men's college basketball team‎, etc.[edit]

Frietjes, here's a template merge I would support in a heartbeat: Template:Infobox men's college basketball team‎ and Template:Infobox women's college basketball team‎.

Have you ever contemplated a comprehensive merge of all the college sports team infobox templates? With a handful of options, I think all U.S. college sports could be accommodated and the team infoboxes would then have a uniform appearance across all sports. Just a thought . . . . Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 21:48, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

the first is already proposed here. I had thought about the second as well, but it will take more time to work out all the details, since there are differences in the post-season tournament section for various sports. Frietjes (talk) 22:19, 23 May 2013 (UTC)
I just posted a comment in support of the merge of men's and women's college basketball templates. That pending merge should be a no-brainer, and you are clearly already on top of the two minor issues to be addressed in the combined template.
The creation of a combined infobox template for all U.S. college sports teams would require a lot of work and the inclusion of several options, but the core information to be included is common to all. Differences in NCAA playoff structure, etc., could be accommodated by options to be toggled as needed. The payoff would be worth the effort. Not only should these infoboxes have a common appearance within a given sport, the teams affiliated with a given university should also have a common appearance and graphics style, and that can only be accomplished by a common template across all college sports teams. I think you would find the college football, basketball and baseball sports projects to be supportive, and the other college sports do not have active/vocal WikiProjects and tend to follow the lead of the football, basketball and baseball projects. I would be grateful for your help in making this happen, but I also understand that you have numerous pending template projects already. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 11:14, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Is merge possible?[edit]

I wonder how possible is to merge Template:Infobox WNBA biography into Template:Infobox basketball biography. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:30, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

@Magioladitis: possible but difficult, and given the existence of Template:Infobox NBA biography, seems one-sided to only merge one. Frietjes (talk) 14:02, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
Template:Infobox NBA biography is a redirect. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:11, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
@Magioladitis: oops, yes, you're right. then, I suppose it seems like a logical merger. someone would need to do some more in depth analysis of what would be required to merge them. Frietjes (talk) 14:14, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

There are 5 things to take care of:

  • |highschool= needs to be renamed to |high_school=
  • |draft= needs to be demerged to |draft_round= and |draft_pick=. |overseas_career_start= and *|overseas_career_end= do not exist in Infobox basketball biography
  • |profile= is |NBA_profile= so I guess we only need to support both
  • career_teams, overseas_career_teams, awards, medal_templates, medal_templates-expand do not exist in Infobox basketball biography

-- Magioladitis (talk) 14:21, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

@Magioladitis: seems many of the field labels have WNBA in them as well (e.g., "WNBA head coach of" and "Non-WNBA career")? Frietjes (talk) 14:24, 30 December 2013 (UTC)
WBNA career can certainly change to just Career but in worst case scenario we could use Template:Infobox basketball biography as the base infobox for Template:Infobox WNBA biography. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:28, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Template:Infobox pipeline[edit]

Hi, Frietjes. You are expert in the field of infoboxes. Could yo please see {{Infobox pipeline}}. The field discharge_bbl_d is meant to be million barrels per day; however, it uses Mbbl/d instead of MMbbl/d. Could you fix this? Thank you in advance. Beagel (talk) 05:33, 24 March 2014 (UTC)

Tables not correct end[edit]

There is this list of 3,000 pages with tables that do not correct end Wikipedia:CHECKWIKI/028 dump, usually because they contain some header template and not the corresponding footer template. I believe that you are interested in this kind of stuff. In some cases the missing footer template should be created. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:53, 24 May 2014 (UTC)

New list released. Same place. -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:17, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

@Magioladitis: would be good to get the false positives removed. this is triggered by the {{{|safesubst:}}} which, apparently, is being confused with the start of a table. Frietjes (talk) 14:37, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Only by removing redlinks and duplicates, list was reduced by 600 items. I'll ask Bgwhite to exclude {{{|safesubst:}}} using checkwiki's code. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:42, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I cleaned out articles starting with a thru i. The rest of the articles with {{{|safesubst:}}} should either go red or revert back to normal within a week. Bgwhite (talk) 17:11, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
@Bgwhite, Magioladitis: it seems as though this is a false positive? according to {{H:IPA}}, a brace is a valid input, but is also equivalent to ae, and others. Frietjes (talk) 23:56, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Need(s) proper infobox[edit]

I like the header ;)

Something from Lua[edit]

Hi! I posted at User talk:Mr. Stradivarius, but it looks, that Mr. Stradivarius won't respond. So maybe you could have a look:

I wanted to import the portal module to Latvian Wikipedia, but we have diffrent system, as we don't have very much portals and the syntax is a little bit different. I created such data page:

'Portal name' = 'parameter 1', 'parameter 2', 'parameter 3', 'parameter 4' (optionally)

If it would be template, then its code would be something like this (for each portal):

[[File:{{{parameter 3}}}|{{{parameter 4}}}]] [[Portāls:{{{parameter 2}}} portāls|{{{parameter 1}}}]]

And for inclusion in article I would write {{portal|<<here goes the portal name (from data module)>>}}.

So, how it looks to You? You can make any changes for the module @lv wiki, you won't ruin anything as it isn't used.

If the 'Portal name' would be case sensitive (it would be nice, if not)?--Edgars2007 (talk/contribs) 14:20, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

List of pages with unclosed center tags[edit]

User:Magioladitis/sandbox. -- Magioladitis (talk) 15:10, 12 June 2014 (UTC)

Pages with p tags[edit]

Mainly used to align inside tables or define background color. The list had 1,2000 entries but I did most of them. The others need more thorough look.

Only 99 pages left. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:16, 27 July 2014 (UTC)

TwoLeg start[edit]

I have some proposal for a new module. Basically it would implement Template:TwoLeg start (and result) templates, but it could be functionality could be expanded to more legs. There could be such module result:

{{#invoke: Leg|main|legs=2
here goes some formatting things (result width eg.) and maybe some optional text for cells
|{{fb-rt|SCO}} || 1–6 | '''{{fb|NED}}''' || 1–0 | 0–6

would produce

Team 1 Agg. Team 2 1st leg 2nd leg
Scotland  1–6  Netherlands 1–0 0–6

And to use the module for existing templates, there could be functions for that, so TwoLegStart's code could be replaced with something like {{#invoke: Leg|start|legs=2}}.

And for the optional text for cells:

CHECKWIKI July lists are available[edit]

p tags. In many cases inside tables. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:03, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
