Template:Geobox locator Australia for all Australian states and territories[edit]

Hi there. Thanks so much for creating the {{Geobox locator Australia New South Wales}}. I'd really value your help to create Geobox locators for all other Australian states and territories. Are you able to help me by either creating them for me, or by showing me how they are created. I tried to create {{Geobox locator Australia Victoria}} but I could not calculate the ratio in order to get the map centre. I keep getting an error message "Expression error: Unrecognized punctuation character "["." Many thanks for your advice and help. Rangasyd (talk) 13:33, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I forgot to say that the template is sitting in my sandbox, here. Thanks. Rangasyd (talk) 13:55, 6 January 2014 (UTC)
Hello. The values defined in User:Rangasyd/sandbox/Template:Geobox locator Australia Victoria appear to be correct except ratio, which for File:Australia Victoria location map blank.svg would be 0.7033 (rounded). To calculate that value I divided 967 (height in pixels) by 1375 (width in pixels). The values are displayed by {{Geobox locator info}}, which was written with the expectation that it would transcluded in either Template:Geobox locator NAME or Template:Geobox locator NAME/doc (where NAME is the map location name, such as Australia New South Wales). I updated {{Geobox locator info}} to handle other namespaces and subpages, so it now displays the values in your sandbox template. However, if you want to test your template prior to making it live, you'll need to place it at Template:Geobox locator Australia Victoria/sandbox because the geobox templates expect the map definition to start with Template:Geobox locator. -- Zyxw (talk) 05:27, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I've created the template and placed it at Template:Geobox locator Australia Victoria/sandbox. Would you please provide feedback here or on the template's talk page? Thanks agian. Rangasyd (talk) 11:16, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay responding, but I see that you've already made it live and are using it. I updated the documentation for {{Geobox locator Australia New South Wales}} and {{Geobox locator Australia Victoria}} and also moved both templates from Category:Geobox locator to the new category Category:Geobox locator Australia. -- Zyxw (talk) 16:11, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Just a note - Commons:User:Bidgee is working on this map at the moment. See Commons:User talk:Mattinbgn#Deamalgamated Shires in Queensland for a discussion. -- Mattinbgn (talk) 23:57, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi Zyxw. It's me back again. This time I'm working on Template:Geobox locator Australia Australian Capital Territory/sandbox; but I've stuffed up the ratio again. Perhaps you could explain to me this time how the calculations are actually made, because clearly the ratio is wrong. Many thanks. Rangasyd (talk) 12:31, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
Hello again. The ratio value for map definitions used by Template:Geobox map is based on the map image that will be used: just divide the image height by the image width. The box displayed by {{Geobox locator info}} even has a nice little reminder of this: "ratio (height÷width)". You asked specifically about Template:Geobox locator Australia Australian Capital Territory/sandbox:
  1. This appears to be based on File:Australia Capital Territory location map.svg. If you click that image link you will see it listed as "477 × 691 pixels" (first value is width, second value is height). Therefore divide 691 (height) by 477 (width), which equals 1.4486 (rounded).
  2. The alternative image File:Australian Capital Territory parishes.png is NOT going to work with that map definition since it has different coordinates for the edges (top, bottom, left, right) and also a different height/width ratio.
  3. In the documentation at Template:Geobox locator Australia Australian Capital Territory/doc, the map definition, examples, and calibration tests don't work correctly because they are set to use the live template which does not currently exist.
  4. I have updated the map definition to the correct ratio. I updated the documentation to remove the image with different coordinates and the non-existent image, plus the map definition, examples, and calibration tests now display correctly since they use the /sandbox map definitions. Please be sure to remove all occurrences of "/sandbox" from the documentation before (or immediately after) making the template live.
Thanks. -- Zyxw (talk) 08:37, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for that. I think that all makes sense. So, does that mean using the .svg image is not recommended over the .png image? I shall now proceed to make the sandbox live. You're quite the expert in this area. While you're so good at it, is it worthwhile continuing for the remainder of the Australian states and territories that are yet to have Template:Geobox maps (e.g. SA, Tas, WA, NT, Qld, AAT, etc.). That way, they're done and when I complete my projects of rivers, mountains, and dams with geoboxes, I can add maps to them. A penny for your thoughts? Cheers. Rangasyd (talk) 08:33, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
In general, the {{Geobox map}} and {{Location map}} templates with work with any image type: .SVG, .PNG, etc. My comment was just that the coordinates (top, bottom, left, right) which you defined in Template:Geobox locator Australia Australian Capital Territory/sandbox were matched to the coordinates specified in the description of File:Australia Capital Territory location map.svg. When compared side-by-side, it was obvious that File:Australian Capital Territory parishes.png would not have the same coordinates. There is no reason why you couldn't define a different "Geobox locator" template for that .PNG image, assuming could find the correct latitude for the image's top & bottom and the longitude for left & right (they are not specified in the image description). -- Zyxw (talk) 21:19, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

List of Breweries in...[edit]

Hi Zyxw: Recently one user has started redirecting the Lists of breweries in ___ state to other articles such as Brewing in Vermont. He has been asked to form consensus on this in several places including Talk:List of breweries in Illinois, Talk:Brewing in Vermont and on his own talk page. When he replies it is to state a rigid self-defined policy that will result (according to him) in every one of these state lists being lost. Since you've done so much work on these type of lists and templates, I'm asking for your contribution to these discussions. Ellin Beltz (talk) 17:48, 20 January 2014 (UTC)

Hi. I've commented at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of breweries in Connecticut (which also includes AFDs for Idaho, Iowa, New Mexico, and Tennessee), plus the individual state AFDs listed below:
I also took the time to update List of breweries in Connecticut with references, including publications such as the New York Times and the Hartford Courant. To help keep these from being deleted, all of the other lists should be updated with references from reliable sources. It only takes an investment of time and some Google searching. -- Zyxw (talk) 05:49, 21 January 2014 (UTC)
Thank you so much for your help. I have gotten the list for California in order, but the problem is the other user is redirecting the old list pages to "Brewing in____" pages without retaining the information or having consensus of the other editors on the page. I've tried to talk with him, and he did fix one page's information that was lost in the redirect for Brewing in Vermont but I never even knew he did AFDs until you pointed this out. I never had much to do with Brewing anywhere until I worked on the Wiki pages of couple breweries who are large employers in Humboldt County and a "PROD" tag was pasted on that List of breweries in California page. Again thank you for your help, I've never met a large scale deletionist/redirector like this before and I don't want to start a tempest in a brewing kettle.

Musical infoboxes[edit]

When you convert a musical artist infobox into a person infobox with a musical artist module embedded in it, remember to move the "background" parameter into the module. It doesn't have as obvious an effect on the appearance of the infobox when it's embedded, but it's still a mandatory parameter and causes errors if it's not included. — Paul A (talk) 04:25, 1 September 2014 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Good morning, Zyxw. Got a question for you: why are you distinguishing between the parameters imported from Infobox sportsperson and those those parameters that are specific to Infobox swimmer [1]? Is there some reason to do this? It was agreed several years ago that Infobox swimmer could be merged with Infobox sportsperson but maintained as a wrapper with its own swimming-specific parameters, but without importing the long list of optional parameters that Infobox sportsperson includes. That's the background, and most swimming editors want to maintain those boundaries and keep a shorter, simpler infobox for swimmer bios. To that end, I would like to understand the purpose(s) of your last change to the template documentation. Thanks. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 15:14, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello. I felt it would be helpful to go through the documentation of all the infoboxes implemented via {{Infobox sportsperson}} to make it clear which parameters were added that did not exist in the main template. Part of what prompted this was that I recently noticed a new infobox created with {{Infobox sportsperson}} which did not have any additional parameters and only defined a value for |sport=. I have revised the documentation at {{Infobox swimmer}} to remove the highlighting and list the descriptions in the order displayed, with a less obtrusive table row header showing the parameters added for swimmers. I hope that will address your concerns. Thanks. -- Zyxw (talk) 16:04, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for your explanation, Zyxw. I now understand what you were trying to accomplish. The merge/wrap of this Infobox swimmer into Infobox sportsperson was a compromise coupled with a promise: that Infobox swimmer could maintain its character and sport-specific parameters, without importing the long list of optional parameters that Infobox sportsperson includes. Your latest round of edits appears to be in keeping with that understanding. Hope to bump into you again around the encyclopedia. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 03:41, 2 February 2015 (UTC)

Template:Infobox college football player[edit]

Zyxw, I have reverted your recent edit to Infobox college football player. I didn't do this because I disagreed with your addition of date and place of death parameters; in fact, they are at the top of the list of parameter changes that will probably be made to this template in the near future. The template's design is under active consideration by members of WP:CFB and WP:NFL (see User talk:Dirtlawyer1/sandbox), and we are presently waiting on a mock-up of the revised infobox before we commence !voting on the final changes. If you would like to express your opinion regarding the proposed addition of date and place of death parameters, we would welcome your participation. We would also welcome your critique of the revised template coding when the mock-up becomes available. Thanks for your understanding. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 23:47, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Template:FIPS[edit]

The {{FIPS}} template recently stopped working for me. It used to function as advertised, but now every link takes me to data for Salton City CDP in California. Can you correct this?—Stepheng3 (talk) 06:48, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Now it's working again. I don't know why. Sorry to have bothered you unnecessarily.—Stepheng3 (talk) 04:58, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of List of Miami City Ballet performers[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article List of Miami City Ballet performers has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Outdated and no reason to believe any of these dancers are notable enough to be listed on Wikipedia. This sort of company list should remain on the Miami City Ballet website, if anywhere. Fails WP:GNG.

While all constructive contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.
