Copyvio detector stuff[edit]

Hey!

Rumor has it that you have some kind of JS tool that opens all links in a given page in my copyvio checker. Well, the checker is now smart enough to test all URLs in the page itself as part of its general check (which you asked for... oh... about 14 months ago), so if you want, you can probably update it to just open the one URL which does the regular check (without &url=) and not open a bunch of separate requests simultaneously.

Let me know how it goes. — Earwig talk 09:57, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

  • Earwig, No webservice

    The URI you have requested, /copyvios/, is not currently serviced.
    {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 16:38, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Technical 13 Gah... sorry, fixed now; it looks like Labs is having some issues with webservers shutting down, so I might need to look into auto-restarting it or something if this happens again... — Earwig talk 17:40, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Earwig: No webservice: The URI you have requested, /copyvios/, is not currently serviced.

  • I did get to see what it looked like, and it is making progress and I got an email seeing you added a list of sites checked and confidence for each (which was going to be my next suggestion). I was trying to see what that looked like when I got the error above (modified for Wikipedia). The page I checked it on was a dictionary word, and I got an 83% confidence testing against some dictionary site which copies stuff from a bunch of other dictionary sites. Anyways. I'll update my script once I see how the confidence list thing looks, but you are making it better. :) — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 14:07, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    • You really don't need to paste the entire error message; it's the same thing as always. I've restarted it for now, but I'll have to look into fixing this issue (which seems to be a memory leak or something?) — Earwig talk 15:14, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
      • I apologize Earwig, I've been dealing with a lot of idiots lately and it has become a very bad habit to try and be stupid clear and complete. I've actually not looked at the source and I can't see your usage stats, so I've no idea what is causing it. Thanks for restarting it, I'll look at it tonight when I get home from taking my daughter to the park and then the store to restock on a few things. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 15:48, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

HD preload template[edit]

Hi Technical 13, could you explain to me how changing the header messes up the template? I'm new to templates so I'm not sure how this works. Thank you! —gdfusion (talk|contrib) 22:48, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

  • The template that is posted on the user's talk page via templates and links offers them a link back to the section based on an expected header. By changing the header, all of those links on user's talk pages were broken. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 03:44, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    @Gdfusion: I've restored your changes along with an anchor that fixes the problem that T13 raised. Jackmcbarn (talk) 03:54, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
    Thank you for explaining this to me and correcting it! :) —gdfusion (talk|contrib) 16:44, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

TemplateLinkNamespace[edit]

You said "the standard is TemplateLinkNamespace" in this edit summary. How is this the standard? What other template follows that? Jackmcbarn (talk) 21:53, 5 September 2014 (UTC)

  • Jackmcbarn, there are really only 3 namespaces where templates are currently housed; Template, User, and project. Of those:
    • {{Tl}} for Template namespace (Template Link)
    • {{Tlu}} for User namespace
  • For creating link demonstration (which follows the same convention as they are similar processes), there is a lot more:
Namespace Link to subject page Link to talk page
General {{pagelinks|FULL PAGE NAME}}
Same as for subject page
{{ln|NAMESPACE|PAGE NAME}} {{lnt|NAMESPACE|PAGE NAME}}
Article {{la|ARTICLE}} {{lat|ARTICLE}}
Draft {{ld|DRAFT}} {{ldt|DRAFT}}
Template {{lt|TEMPLATE}} {{ltt|TEMPLATE}}
Wikipedia {{lw|PAGE}} {{lwt|PAGE}}
Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/ {{lafd|PAGE}}
User {{lu|PAGE}} {{lut|PAGE}}
Category {{lc|PAGE}} {{lct|PAGE}}
File {{lf|FILE}} {{lft|FILE}}
Portal {{lp|PORTAL}} {{lpt|PORTAL}}
MediaWiki {{lm|MESSAGE}} {{lmt|MESSAGE}}
Help {{lh|PAGE}} {{lht|PAGE}}
Book {{lb|BOOK}} {{lbt|BOOK}}
Education Program {{lep|PROGRAM}} {{lept|PROGRAM}}
TimedText {{lttxt|TIMEDTEXT}} {{lttxtt|TIMEDTEXT}}
Module {{lmd|MODULE}} {{lmdt|MODULE}}
This is clearly the convention for all of the linking templates... — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 22:05, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
When you call a module, though, you don't do {{Module:FooBar|baz}}. You do {{#invoke:FooBar|baz}}. I also don't see how the l* templates have anything at all to do with the tl* templates. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:06, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Template Link, Template Link User... Link Article, Link File, Link Portal... They are all linking templates, and are the same group as far as I'm concerned. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 22:13, 5 September 2014 (UTC)
    The only thing I see in common between tl* and l* is the word "link" in what they do. Jackmcbarn (talk) 02:04, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
