please can you return the article kingston hospital radio to my sandbox. i do not understand what you mean by redirects etc, and I find the wikipedia guidelines confusing and complicated. i work for the charity involved so am not sure how why i don't seem to be able to use our content. all i need is for someone to say do this, don't do this in relation to my article. if necessary i will move it to a special page. thanks.

Information.svg When using {{outdent}} or {{od}}, please make sure to include a parameter with the number of colons that the previous post had. For example, if the previous post had four colons (::::), use {{outdent|::::}} or {{outdent|4}}. This makes sure that the line properly connects to the previous post.

Hello Topbanana, this list is generated by a bot? I'm interested on its use on pt wiki. Rodrigolopes (talk) 14:53, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

It's not a bot, I have a set of scripts I run on tool labs that generates most of what's needed to repopulate the most wanted list. I'll start a run against the Portuguese-language Wikipedia now and post some results for you in a few hours. - TB (talk) 15:40, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
This is absolutely great. thanks Rodrigolopes (talk) 15:57, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
I have put your list of most wanted links at pt:Usuário:Rodrigolopes/mostwanted. You can also find a few thousand automatically generated suggestions for correcting red links in the Red Link Recovery Live tool. Have fun. - TB (talk) 18:18, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
In first place thank you so much for the attention. I think that can be very usefull to me. One last help, the replace button is not working on pt wiki. Rodrigolopes (talk) 19:39, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
You're welcome. I've tested the 'AUTOFIX' links and they are working for me. I see you've changed pt:Usuário:Rodrigolopes/vector.js and pt:Usuário:Rodrigolopes/common.js a few times - what you have now looks correct. Did you bypass your browser cache for both pages (CTRL+F5) ? - TB (talk) 19:56, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Using to create a redirect is ok, but when using to replace does not work. Rodrigolopes (talk) 00:33, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
The buttons Find and Replace appears on the text, but clicking on it nothing happens. Rodrigolopes (talk) 00:57, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Odd, very odd. Does this AUTOFIX link show up for you like below? File:RLRL ex.png

Yes, and when i click on Replace the message "Finished; 1 items were replaced." is there, but when i save, no change happens. Rodrigolopes (talk) 10:58, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Most strange - it works for me. I wonder if the difference is between the Portugese and English language Wikipediae, or between our accounts. Can you try this AUTOFIX link (on the English Wiki) to see if it behaves the same for you please. - TB (talk) 12:50, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Works fine to me here see it. After many attempts, one time it works, but the replacement was wrong. And after that nothing happens again. Rodrigolopes (talk) 13:08, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Take a look how it works for me. Rodrigolopes (talk) 17:55, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I think the problem is due to the 'WikEd' gadget and the RLRL scripts working against each other. Can I ask you to temporarily turn off the WikEd gadget on your ptwiki account (Preferences->Gadgets and untick 'WikEd' in the Editing section) and try a few AUTOFIX'es to see if they behave properly then please? Cheers. - TB (talk) 20:25, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
That's it, works perfectly. Thank you for the patience and i hope don't disturb you for a looong time. Big smile.png My best regards. Rodrigolopes (talk) 22:55, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
No problem at all - in fact I prefer it when people let me know that something's not working. I will update the RLRL tools to make them work with the alternate 'WikEd' editor, but it may be a few weeks until I get a chance to do so. Please shout if I can do anything else for you or ptwiki. - TB (talk) 07:48, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Hello TB, here I am again. I have a suggestion about RLRL (and don't know if is possible), in this cases, maybe a buttom AUTOFIX ALL could be usefull. By the way, Check a specific page and MULTFIX are not working in pt version. thank you Rodrigolopes (talk) 01:25, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

The broken 'MULTIFIX' and 'check a specific page' are now working for ptwiki. I agree it would be nice to fix multiple red links in one edit, but have never found a way of doing this that is nice to use yet still encourages careful editing. Until then, do be sure to use the 'check a specific page' function to search for articles matching entries on your most wanted list - this link should do it for you. - TB (talk) 09:23, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Spelling correction on Right Sector[edit]

I’d like to acknowledge that my revert to your helpful correction at Right Sector should be interpreted as an error on my part, not yours. --Dervorguilla (talk) 11:45, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

No problem, cheers - TB (talk) 13:57, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Link repair[edit]

Hi, regarding edits like this - how does that fall within WP:RLR? Neither were redlinks. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:31, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

I'm trying to train a new system to predict common mis-spellings of article titles; this would be of great use in suggesting potential matches for red links. I had hoped to use redirects marked with the {{R from misspellings}} template as training data but there's not much consistency or logic behind the template's current use. So, I'm trying to clean these up by hand to move things forwards - so far I've checked 3000 of them, 2000 more or so to go ;) - TB (talk) 17:00, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
