The Great Unassessed-Article Avalanche of 2017[edit]

Hey hi hello, I first want to thank you for taking the time out of your day to tag literally a couple hundred articles with Template:WPG, but just wanted to ask you to try your hand at assessing them by hand (like me, but I don't want to toot my own horn here) instead of dumping 250+ articles to assess into the pile. Gott mit Uns, –Vami_IV✠ 04:20, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

One step at a time, please. First identifying those articles that fall into the scope of the project, then sorting out the ones that are already assessed, and then dealing with the rest. That's my plan. WYT ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 04:22, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
Alright; I'll keep assessing articles and you keep throwing them in. Sounds like a plan. –Vami_IV✠ 04:30, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
BTW These articles have all been assessed already for MILHIST, which in general works for WPG too. So there is no need to re-assess them, except for the biographical articles that have been turned into redirects recently. ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 04:34, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

Text insertion with AWB[edit]

I see you have been able to insert text into lists with AWB. I can't figure that out. AWB is ok for replacing text, but how would I insert two lines into a list? Specifically the problem I am having is creating the new lines using find/replace.

Find: "*1 × 8.8 cm (3.46 in) deck gun (220 rounds)"

Replace: "*1 × 8.8 cm (3.46 in) deck gun (220 rounds) *1 x 3.7 cm (1.5 in) Flak M42 AA gun *2 x 2 cm (0.79 in) C/30 AA guns" How do I make AWB create a new line before each *? Thank You Snowdawg (talk) 00:51, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

If you programme the AWB to replace the old text (above) with the new one, including the breaks, it should do the trick [1]. ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 04:40, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
How do I make AWB insert breaks after each line though? What does your replace string look like so I can compare it to mine? (talk) 16:35, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
I figured it out. I was doing all of my edits within AWB from the edit box and then copying the text if it looked right into the filter section and saving it. However for some reason while it looked right there it was wrong once committed to the page. So I edited the page first and copied and pasted what looks right on the page into the filters section and saved it. They look nearly identical but somehow the breaks are now in there. Thanks!
