What are the rules for semi-protecting pages?[edit]

Hi Alai. What are the rules for semo-protecting pages? I'm a bit tired of having to remove the same vandalism to Youth of the Danish People's Party everyday. (Its mother party is deeply controversial, but somebody seems to mistake this project for a soapbox, especially since Denmark is currently in the middle of an election). Best. Valentinian T / C 14:16, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Roger. I won't guarantee that I'll be around to spot this everytime it happens. I still don't understand why anon editing is permitted on this project at all, given the vandalism/good edits ratio from IPs. Valentinian T / C 14:41, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
I don't either. This project has a lot of problems and very few answers. Vandals, trolls, anons etc. jump to mind, not to mention the work climate. Valentinian T / C 15:18, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

Re: uncat albums/EPs by year, WPSS-cat[edit]

Yeah, I guess I'm saying it's been wrong, at least in the majority of cases where it was used on non-talk pages. Talk page templates go on talk pages only, right? --PEJL 22:04, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

BTW, I copied the code from {{notice}}, which uses the same logic to display different colors on talk pages and non-talk pages. In this case we should probably change it to unconditionally use the non-talk colors if this isn't to be used on talk pages. --PEJL 22:10, 4 November 2007 (UTC)
There doesn't currently appear to be any standard color scheme for category pages. I'd argue that using talk page colors is a bad choice, as it makes editors think it's a talk page template even if it isn't. --PEJL 22:59, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Re: (User talk:ais523) User:ais523/stubtagtab.js[edit]

I have actually given some thought to programming this with a menu of options; you're not the only person to request this feature. I'm somewhat busy in Real Life, though (maybe I should put {{busy}} on my talkpage!), so it's unlikely to be implemented in the immediate future unless someone else does it; maybe I'll have a look at it in a week or two weeks, when I ought to have more time (hopefully). --ais523 08:42, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I welcome any objective third parties to come on over and take a look.

Splitting Burmese geo stubs[edit]

Hi aren't you the guy who does the stub sorting? If so we need to sort Category:Burma geography stubs asap into the relevant states. I am aiming to add the villages in the coming months. Could you take care of it for me asap? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ Talk? 20:25, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Burma is divided into 7 states and 7 divisions although they are all basically states at the same level of administration I think: Split by Chin State, Kachin State, Kayah State, Kayin State, Mon State, Rakhine State, Shan State , Ayeyarwady Division, Bago Division, Magway Division, Mandalay Division, Sagaing Division, Tanintharyi Division, Yangon Division.

OK? ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ Talk? 20:30, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

I'm back from my extended wikibreak (though I'm not going to be as active as I was before) so I've started brining BJBot's various functions back online.

{{Mexico-radio-station-stub}}[edit]

Could Alaibot move some articles into this new stub type? Specifically, For all articles in Category:Mexico broadcasting stubs that have their article name ending in "-FM" replace {{Mexico-bcast-stub}} with {{Mexico-radio-station-stub}}? I'm checking those without a suffix by hand since they might not be radio-stations, but if a bot could do those, it'll save me some work. 22:58, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Betacommand: Part Deux[edit]

Betacommand acted a bit hastily with respect to my suggestion of how to accommodate his desire to have the expanding it link in stub templates be something he could ignore while engaged in his quest to rid Wikipedia of internal external links. Just thought you ought to be aware of it as an admin associated with this project. My kludge does work (for now), but if the dev's ever use the fake URL parameter "stub" as real URL parameter, it'll cause some havoc. Shouldn't cause any immediate problems. Caerwine Caer’s whines 00:44, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Categorizing Consultation[edit]

I'm working on a split of Category:Communes and villages in Romania because someone made a lot of stubs. I based some edits on previously created categories for communes, but I am not so sure that make sense now that I've looked at it more deeply. There seems to be little to no distinction between communes and villages in the articles. At present, there are categories for communes, for communes and villages (grouped together) and for "localities" for each county. Can you take a look at it and tell me what you think? Whatever is best, it should be done in a uniform way. I tried to consult with WikiProject: Romania's members, but so far I haven't heard back from them so I decided to consult you and Grutness. Aelfthrytha (talk) 04:05, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Tech help[edit]

Hiya, and happy new year.  :) I'm working on a new proposal to help deal with disruptive editors on Wikipedia, via a technical solution, and I could use some assistance from someone who could write a bot or javascript utility... Do you think you might have time to help? If not, I understand, but I remember what a great job that you did with the categorization stuff, and I'd love to work with you again! Best, Elonka 16:59, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

This is what I'm working on: User:Elonka/WikiDots proposal. For implementation, I'm thinking that it should start with a bot-maintained page that would compile a list of all active editors (defining active as 100+ edits/month), and filter out those who meet certain requirements, starting with two: recent unreversed blocks, and/or being listed on Wikipedia:Editing restrictions. The total "active editor" list is probably going to be about 10,000 editors, though the two-criteria list will probably filter to something much smaller (100-500). How hard do you think that would be to create such a list? -Elonka 21:18, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Gah[edit]

Another issue: WikiProject Saudi Arabia has a template used on talk pages that puts all the articles into stub categories (sometimes twice - once for talk and once for the article). I think it's template {{Expand Saudi Arabia}} but I can't find it to check up on it, and some articles that don't have that template on their talk page do that. I've contacted the wikiproject and am waiting for their reply. Could you take a look in the meantime? Category:Saudi Arabia stubs is a good place to start investigating if you care to. Aelfthrytha (talk) 07:30, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Burma-geo-stub[edit]

Trust me -in a few months there will be several thousand articles and you'll be making a lot of stub sorting work for yourself . I don;t care whether this is 55 or 60 articles for each state it needs setting up. The country covers nearly 680,000 km ². Luckily I have nearly sort the categories by state so it should be made much easier for you ♦ Dr. Blofeld ♦ Talk? 18:23, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Yeah well I couldn't give a jonathan ross what you think either . But yes best to split when one of the states reaches 60 or so I thought there would be more by state than there are at present. Its managable as it is -believe it or not I was actually trying to save you have to stub sort in the future but you seem to enjoy this anyway. ♦ Dr. Blofeld ♦ Talk? 15:39, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Its just seems as there are 342 geo stubs at present I thought you'd want to think about splitting. Whats a good figure for you 600, 800? ♦ Dr. Blofeld ♦ Talk? 15:48, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree with you. Sorry if I appeared aggressive its just we will be generating a lot of geo articles for Burma over the next few weeks. However initally it is the main towns and districts by state so there probably won't be over 60 for each one for some time (even though some states have as many as 10,000 villages). I was more concerned that the main burma-geo-stub category would get too large ♦ Dr. Blofeld ♦ Talk? 16:12, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Category:Cities, towns and villages in the Mandalay Division has 42 at present -I'll be adding a few places tomorrow so it should be around 60 by tomorrow night. The others may take a few weeks to reach 60 particularly the smaller states but just so you know. Anyway take care of yourself mate. I can almost catch that cold online!!

Bot help[edit]

Hi. You were recommended as a possible resource to create a bot for a mundane task I have in mind. For example, Mission San Juan Capistrano (Texas) is in Category:National Historic Landmarks in Texas and also Category:Registered Historic Places in Texas. The latter is redundant and should be deleted since the former is a subcategory of Category:Registered Historic Places in Texas. So, when a reader goes to Category:Registered Historic Places in Texas he'll see Category:National Historic Landmarks in Texas at the top, and then all of the "non-landmark" sites listed below. There needn't be any individual landmark sites in the list. Can you use a bot to do that (for all the states)? (I've done it manually for a few of the states, so you may find some that don't need any done.) Thanks.--Appraiser (talk) 20:48, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes. For any article that contains both Category:Registered Historic Places in Alabama and Category:National Historic Landmarks in Alabama, the former should be deleted. And the same rule would apply for all 50 states. Thanks for your help.--Appraiser (talk) 22:51, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
Just a little bit at User_talk:Ebyabe#Ton of work.--Appraiser (talk) 00:33, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Burma-stubs again[edit]

Hi there's now around 600 Burma geo stubs. I just wondered if there was a figure that you thought was appropriate for splitting as you said Tibet was oversized around this mark. ♦ Sir Blofeld ♦ Talk? 17:37, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Category:American television actor stubs[edit]

Could you have Alaibot sort through this stub category searching for birth year categories to place them into per decade templates (1900s thru 2000s) This category is oversized at 7 pages and a fairly random sample of about 30 of them I just tried to sort indicates that about 3/4 of them could be sorted into the per decade templates (Note, the 1900s, 1910s, and 2000s templates sort into the main category as well right now, so if you can get the list of what to sort by using What links here, it might work smoother.) Caerwine Caer’s whines 23:35, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

OK, done. You might want to coordinate with Leofric1, who I notice is (repeatedly) editing a lot of these stubs too, and one might wonder whether in the most efficient of all possible ways. Alai (talk) 20:57, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm just trying to sort them, in part because of the proposal of {{child-actor-stub}}. The bot wasn't as helpful as I hoped, but that's because of pages that use per category sortkeys instead of DEFAULTSORT. Since DEFAULTSORT addition needs to be dealt with by hand, that's not really a problem. Caerwine Caer’s whines 04:05, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
