Friendly reminder[edit]

Just a reminder you said you would review the new discussions when you have some time. As I said there, some editors are construing the results of the proposal and !vote more/less broadly than others... The original "Formal poll" asked for editors to be "stating an opinion based on policy or guidelines in favour of or opposed to the use of flags to represent a driver's or team's nation in Formula 1 articles. Some editors (and the contested edit to the MOS) are taking the close to apply to areas other than Formula 1. Clarification and rationale would be helpful.

That's what you get for trying to be helpful – as they say, no good dead goes unpunished Face-smile.svg. Thanks again. Mojoworker (talk) 18:30, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

I think the edit request was right, I will try to search for a reference. --Stone (talk) 04:32, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Javascript potential[edit]


I know nothing about user scripts or such things, but I was wondering if you could assist me. I am asking you because your name betrays an involvement in such things. There is a gadget on the Commons called "Cat-a-lot". It makes moving categories much easier. It would not've been useful here prior to the enabling of category moves for auto-confirmed users, so I imagine that is why it was never brought over here. However, as we all know, manual category moves, now available to auto-confirmed users, require a lot of clean-up. This gadget would make such clean-up much easier. I asked for assistance with this matter at the gadget's talk page. The sole respondent said to "find a user familiar with javascript who would be willing to adopt it". I wonder, would you be willing to do such a thing? I have no idea what this entails. I have zero technical computer knowledge. I am merely asking, as I think it would be a beneficial tool to have at our disposal. RGloucester 20:57, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm heading out in a couple hours for a 'guys night' with a couple guys from my church and have a church breakfast tomorrow, but once I have a few free moments, I'll happily take a look. I'm sure it won't take much if anything to bring it over. Would you want it to be a gadget or just available as a userscript (you mention it is a gadget on commons)? If you want it as a gadget, we'll have to get assistance from an admin and Writ Keeper, Edokter, and Jackmcbarn come to the top of my head as possible helpers on this. Let me know. :) — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 21:14, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
I imagine a userscript is better. RGloucester 21:35, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
  • RGloucester, have you tried adding mw.loader.load( '' );// [[Commons:Help:Gadget-Cat-a-lot]] to your common.js? I don't see anything that jumps out at me why that shouldn't work. — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 12:16, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
I tried, but it is unusable. The interface is totally screwed up and one cannot click any of the buttons. I suppose it needs to be imported as a gadget, then? RGloucester 15:55, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • I can bring it over if needed, I just have never used it, so it will be a little harder to maintain not knowing exactly what it is suppose to do. :/ — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 17:21, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, one could read this page. Essentially, it makes moving pages between different categories much easier. It provides a convenient interface for such moves. I do think it would be of great benefit to Wikipedia. As a Commons gadget, the original works with file pages. However, here, it should be able to work for article pages. RGloucester 18:00, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Any progress on this matter? If you haven't time or interest, perhaps you could direct me in the direction of someone who might be able to help? RGloucester 21:02, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
    • I really don't have a lot of time. Those three people I mentioned above would probably be a good start if you're looking for someone with time who might be interested. Alternatively, perhaps one of the other editors in User js (I'd suggest someone in 3-5, 2 at the lowest)? — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 21:11, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Much obliged. RGloucester 21:39, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox film[edit]

Hi.... The language parameter should automatically link the language (without any additional text), to the language article. Seems it's not working, take a look at my edit. What could be the problem ? Can you fix this? regards, DRAGON BOOSTER 04:31, 22 March 2015 (UTC).

  • Why (and how) would a template autolink in that way? How would the template know if {{{language}}} should be looking for Telugu/Telugu language/Telugu (language), or some other variation? — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 21:42, 22 March 2015 (UTC)
Believe me... It used to link automatically, (eg: Tamil → Tamil language, Telugu → Telugu language.... xxxxx → xxxxx language..... ), for some strange reason it stopped suddenly, otherwise I wouldn`t be having this conversation. Nevertheless, in both the tables its says "{{{language}}} : In the case of a single language without any additional text, it will automatically link to the language article. regards, DRAGON BOOSTER 06:39, 23 March 2015 (UTC).
It did formerly do that, yes; the feature was removed five months ago by Frietjes (talk · contribs) with this edit. See Template talk:Infobox film/Archive 27#Language linking. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:42, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Infobox college football player[edit]

Hey, T13. Are you available to help and/or give advice with layout and design issues for the revised template? There is a sandbox version under development here: [1]. There will be additional formatting issues involving internal margins, internal justification, lists, graphics, colors, etc. Please let me know ASAP. Cheers. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 18:00, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

  • lol There you are. I was wondering when you were going to come back and visit to work on this some more... That last section got archived about a week after I bumped it and that was a week or two ago... My last comment in User_talk:Technical_13/2015/1#Infobox ...the next step is for you to put together some test cases and tell me "this line should be... and that line should be more like... " and visual references are very good in cases where we are trying to similarly produce and effect available in another box. still applies. :) Your sandbox looks good, what specific tweaks do you need help with? — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 21:47, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

adjust settings in OBA[edit]

Hey Tech,

I was playing around trying to get that One Button Archive to work for my talk page. I sorta got it there - but I want to change some settings.

  1. It shows up on ALL the talk pages I visit - if I wanted to, can I make it JUST show on my own talk? If so, how?
  2. I sort of have it working - but it archives to my very first archive (here). How do I set the parameter to my current archive? (Currently here, but will soon be here.)

any help would be appreciated, but if you are busy with other things I understand - I can just remove the stuff from my monobook.js (or wherever the hell I put it). Thanks. — Ched (talk · contribs) 17:34, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Very good! I thank you. :) — Ched (talk · contribs) 17:34, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
  1. You can't have it "just" show up on your own talk page (although I might consider making that a future option). What I suggest doing in the mean time is, depending on your browser, Alt+ Shift+O to disable the script by default on all pages, then when you want to use it, Alt+ Shift+O to turn it back on, click the link to archive the section(s) you want to archive and then Alt+ Shift+O to turn it back off again.
  2. I've added the template to your talk page so that it will archive to Archive 31. Feel free to adjust the counter or maxarchive size (it will respect maxarchivesize now) to your liking within reason.  :)
Happy archiving! — {{U|Technical 13}} (etc) 18:06, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
I don't edit on my phone, or even my tablet really - so I'll just be careful. (and will try those keys out). I did try to set it up myself (here), but didn't have the energy to troubleshoot it at the time. Just getting harder and harder for me to follow through on coding stuff. I did notice when I removed the code from my talk, once the cache was purged the "Archive" button was still there. Figured I might trouble you at some point for the help. Thank you again Tech - I really do appreciate your time. — Ched (talk · contribs) 18:20, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
