  • Since you're taking an active interest in Gender pay gap, please be advised that I added one new comment to our discussion before adding one new section to the talk page. I also moved a small amount of text from the section we have been disputing, but I moved it to the section immediately above the disputed section, because the higher section and the text that I moved have precisely the same topic (so that's where that text actually belongs). Thanks for your patience. • ArchReader 09:36, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

How to tag a userscript for deletion[edit]

Hey do you know where you add a tag to have a userscript deleted (U1 stuff, not someone else's)? To wit: User:Protonk/IRCNick.js. I think I can create User:Protonk/IRCNick but I don't know if creating that to add a tag works. Protonk (talk) 14:30, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

IE, how do you tag JS pages for deletion? Ironholds (talk) 15:40, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes. Protonk (talk) 14:46, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
I...don't actually know! Do U1s not work? Ironholds (talk) 15:40, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
They don't work on the the js page itself. I could make a non-js page and tag that, noting the actual page I want deleted in the reasons, but I don't think Twinkle or similar tools will understand that request. Protonk (talk) 15:53, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
What page do you want deleted? Ironholds (talk) 15:54, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
User:Protonk/IRCNick.js. Protonk (talk) 15:56, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey! You hit the big 2-0-0 recently--and rather too quietly, in my humble opinion. You've truly achieved the rank of DYK master, dude! Keep on keepin' on. Fisheriesmgmt (talk) 23:27, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
@Fisheriesmgmt: thanks! Ironholds (talk) 01:45, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

How do I update page views in my quarry query?[edit]

Would you please help me with ? In particular I would like to get actual page views for a more informative sort. Also please tell me which automated measure of reading level is best. Thank you. EllenCT (talk) 02:14, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure what you mean by update; the problem is simply that storing pageviews in the database would pretty much cripple everything, so we've stopped storing them there in any form (basically we'd have to make up to 125,000 writes to the database a minute, and things would fall over in...less than that).
The new pageviews definition I wrote mostly lives inside the analytics cluster at the moment; there are people working to surface it in an automated way, but it probably won't be available through Quarry - too big :(. Ironholds (talk) 03:42, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I hope some day the ability to update the snapshot of article popularity is achieved. Otherwise my plans to scrutinize in proportion to influence may be at risk. In the mean time, which automated measure of reading level has the best agreement with a panel of judges'? EllenCT (talk) 07:11, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't know if that kind of comparison has been performed; for what it's worth I've always used SMOG (although it doesn't work well with non-English languages). Ironholds (talk) 20:40, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
