Semi-protected edit request on 22 September 2017[edit]

Queen Elizabeth II is a descendant of William the Conqueror, https://infogalactic.com/info/Descent_of_Elizabeth_II_from_William_the_Conqueror#Genealogical_relationships_to_Elizabeth_II

Rollo is the great-great-great-grandfather of William the Conqueror, or William I of England. Through William, he is one of the ancestors of the present-day British royal family, as well as an ancestor of all current European monarchs and a great many claimants to abolished European thrones.

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want to be made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. SparklingPessimist Scream at me! 23:18, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Politician infoboxes when there will be a new regent[edit]

What will happen to all the "Monarch Elizabeth II" in the infoboxes of for example Theresa May when there is a new Head of the Commonwealth? Would all the infoboxes of politicians (and others?) needed to be changed manually or is there a automated way to do it? Vespasian (talk) 01:30, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

You mean of course, when there will be a new monarch. Yes, those will be changed from Elizabeth II to who succeeds her as British monarch, Canadian monarch, Australian monarch etc etc. As for Head of the Commonwealth? it's not yet decided as to who'll succeed Elizabeth II in that role. GoodDay (talk) 01:33, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Ok but will it be done automatic? If so, how? Vespasian (talk) 01:40, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
When Elizabeth II dies, Charles automatically succeeds. Therefore, Charles III will be put in Theresa May's infobox with Elizabeth II's name. For now, it's not a concern, as the queen is still alive. PS- We the editors will make the changes on Wikipedia, ourselves. GoodDay (talk) 01:46, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Sorry if I was not clear enough I hope I am now. I'm not concerned with who succeeds her physically but how the changes are made to the infoboxes? -->
The Right Honourable
Theresa May
MP
Theresa May.png
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Monarch Elizabeth II
Charles III
If that's to be done manually then it's a lot of work. Vespasian (talk) 02:01, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
With so many editors watching these articles, I'm confident it'll be completed within 24 hrs. GoodDay (talk) 02:06, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Within 10 minutes using AWB or some other script would be my bet. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:07, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks TonyBallioni that was exactly what i was was looking for. It would be neat if there would be something as a "article variable" so instead of writing "|monarch = [[Elizabeth II]]" you wold do something like "|monarch = {{Current monarch of the Commonwealth}}". Vespasian (talk) 02:30, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
There's no such thing as monarch of the Commonwealth, though. GoodDay (talk) 02:43, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
"|monarch = {{Current Head of the Commonwealth}}" then. Vespasian (talk) 02:50, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
It won't work because there would need to be two monarchs listed. May would be prime minister under both Elizabeth II and Charles III in this example. Celia Homeford (talk) 07:54, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

On a related topic, when she dies what photo should we use for the infobox? The same one we have now (or another contemporary one), or one from her coronation, or something else? Ivar the Boneful (talk) 09:25, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

Why are we suddenly concerned with what inboxes will look like after she dies? Am I missing something? Is she seriously ill? Surtsicna (talk) 09:41, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
