Infobox Berg to Infobox Mountain[edit]

Hi. In principle, converting Infobox Berg to Infobox Mountain makes sense in the long term. However, sometimes information is lost, usually the elevation reference datum which states e.g. whether the height is above Normalnull in Amsterdam or metres above the Adriatic in Trieste. They are slightly different. Before we lose much more info in converting the tables from one to t'other, could Infobox Mountain be modified to cater record and display the height reference system? --Bermicourt (talk) 06:04, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Wikimedia - open source & hiring[edit]

Hi, RedWolf. I noticed from your edits & userpage that you're a developer. The Wikimedia open source community welcomes you to get developer access so you can contribute code, critique others' commits, and generally get a better sense of how this place works on a technical level.

Also, the Wikimedia Foundation is hiring programmers, in case you know anyone who's looking (especially for Java work on Gerrit or Lucene). Remote work is often feasible.

  • Hi. At present I do not have sufficient free time to undertake any sort of developer role on an open source project. As well, since I develop proprietary application code as a profession, I must be careful to avoid contamination to/from open source code which can lead to licensing issues for my employer. That however does not automatically prevent me from working on open source endeavors. In any case, I don't rule out any future developer role participation on Wikimedia projects and will keep the opportunity in mind. Thanks. RedWolf (talk) 03:45, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Obsolete category[edit]

Hello RedWolf. I wanted to let you know that I depopulated Category:Somatoform disorders, a category you created, and taged it {{csd-c1}} as an empty category. I did this because the new DSM-5 has discontinued using the term: somatoform disorder in favor of somatic symptom disorder.[1] All pages have been moved to the newly created category: Category:Somatic symptom disorders. Thank you for this and all other contributions you have made to this encyclopedia. Best regards.—John Cline (talk) 02:07, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Peakbagger ref template[edit]

Hello. Regarding this change. I cite Peakbagger fairly often and I don't have a problem with using this template other than it takes just as long to fill in the fields as it does to format it manually and I don't have to copy/paste or remember the proper syntax of the template. So overall it's quicker for me to manually format. Also, the way I have been doing it the past 2 or 3 years, the resulting displayed text is exactly the same anyway. If there is a good reason to use the template, I will be happy to start using it from now on. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 20:05, 10 May 2014 (UTC)

Hi. The citation templates have a number of advantages:

  • the references formatting is consistent.
  • updating the url is easy in case the site ever decides to change it (e.g. the GNIS URL tends to change every couple of years as it did recently).
  • a tracking category can be easily added to the template if need be.
  • using the "what links here" for the template allows us to quickly find all articles using it as a reference/source.
  • if the peakbagger site ever goes away, we can add the 'archiveurl' and 'archivedate' parameters to the template so editors can still find the original content on archive.org.

I can see it being a bit easier/quicker not to use the templates but I feel the template benefits are worth the extra bit of time.RedWolf (talk) 18:07, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Very well then. Those are good reasons so I will certainly use it now. Thanks. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 18:21, 11 May 2014 (UTC)
