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.

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)

WikiProject Stub Sorting reports[edit]

It would be nice if you could update Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Uncatted stubs and Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Stubs catted via redirects - both of these arhave been updated last in December. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 04:39, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

And Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/missing stubs - not updated since 2012. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 04:46, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
All done. Enjoy. - TB (talk) 20:48, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. One more thing: Next time you do it, please make sure that stub tags with equal signs get escaped properly (<nowiki<{{stub=tag-name}}</nowiki>, not {{tl|stub=tag-name}}. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 03:41, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
Sure thing; this is normally handled automatically by my editing tools, but you caught me on my holidays. It seems my mobile phone's just no good at copying and pasting utf8 and html. I'll regenerate the reports again from my normal system in a couple of weeks time for you. - TB (talk) 11:30, 10 August 2014 (UTC)
By the way, keep in mind (for Wikipedia:WikiProject Stub sorting/Uncatted stubs) that transclusions of redirects are also counted as transclusions of the redirectr target; counting each separately means thst you end up counting them twice. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 08:52, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Not all admins are active[edit]

About that box on your userpage.. wouldn't it be more accurate to say, "... and of those 1,402 (0.01%) administrators, only 612 are active (as per WP:List of administrators)" Which would raise the number to one administrator for each 213 'active' users. -- œ 04:04, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
