AfD script/redirect[edit]

I got called out, appropriately, for forgetting to categorize redirects after closing AfDs, what do you think about adding something like \n{{uncat}} to the redirect you create when an AfD is closed redirect or merge? The hope is that this would allow for quicker correction. --j⚛e deckertalk 18:06, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Article hits for WP:RPG[edit]

Mr.Z-man, would you be willing and able to create an Article hits page for Wikipedia:WikiProject Role-playing games? BOZ (talk) 04:18, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

I saw your FAQ, so I put in a request for it; if I did it correctly, then nevermind.  :) BOZ (talk) 19:51, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Request: detecting surges in page views[edit]

Dear Mr Z man, Would it be possible to add a feature to the popular pages tool that would flag pages which receive surges in page views? Say if they received 50 times more views than they had the previous month. I work with Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject Chemistry and we see surges like this nearly every month. Normally it's caused by some sort of health scare, which as you can imagine results in all manner questionable edits. If the chemical involved is obscure it may not be on anyone's watchlist in which case we normally fail to react in time. Project Osprey (talk) 17:42, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

Would you want something that just flags it as part of the monthly reports, or something more "real time"? Mr.Z-man 17:57, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, obviously the more real-time the system the more potentially useful - but you can go too far with that. Too sensitive and you have to start thinking about things like cool-down times between alerts, excessive server use etc. Also, beyond a certain point I expect we're talking about a whole new tool rather than just a new feature - and I wouldn't want to burden you in that way. A monthly feature would, I hope, be fairly easy to add; so perhaps we could start with that as a trial and see how well it works. Unless you think the system could be pushed further than that without undue bother? Not being familiar with its inner workings I'll have to defer to your judgement on that.
