Category:Pages using infobox television episode with incorrectly formatted episode list[edit]

Hey Alex, I saw that you created this category Category:Pages using infobox television episode with incorrectly formatted episode list and added it as a tracking category to the infobox, but I think this issue is a bit larger. I was looking at the first article in the category, which is 2-D Blacktop and that uses Template:Infobox Futurama episode, which is a "wrapper" of television episode and has in its code | episode_list = [[Futurama (season {{{season}}})|''Futurama'' (season {{{season}}})]]<br>[[List of Futurama episodes|List of ''Futurama'' episodes]]. Since I'm not familar with what you did and how this tracks, I don't know how to fix this. Mind taking a look? --Gonnym (talk) 15:12, 7 October 2018 (UTC)

Gonnym, sorry for the late reply! The template is meant to use |season_article= and |episode_list= with just the plain links in each parameter; joining both by using |episode_list= with the formatted links is a deprecated format. I've updated the Futurama episode infobox template, so the category should soon begin to clear out. I'll see what other episode infobox templates do this too - cheers for the heads up! -- AlexTW 06:56, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Draft:Supergirl (season 2)[edit]

After what user Legacypac suggested over here, I've decided to do the same. But not right away; I'll need you and Brojam to say it's good to go. Previously you said, "The Production section needs a great deal of expanding. Some of those sections are one, two, maybe three lines long. Critical response as well. No home media dates given for other regions, and it really ought to be in prose. Broadcast has one sentence." Just glimpse at these sections now, and please share your updated view on Talk:List of Supergirl episodes (I'm sure you have time for this). That is a key move in establishing the consensus of the draft being fit to enter the mainspace. Kailash29792 (talk) 15:23, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

DW 11x02 director?[edit]

Hi just wanted to bring this to your attention

I don't think it means anything I just though it was interesting.

There is NO ONE listed as director.

Ok you were right ...

Niki (singer) move[edit]

Hi there, can you explain to me how your move of Niki (singer) to the all caps-stylized NIKI does not go against Wikipedia rules for stylized all caps artist names, MOS:ALLCAPS, etc.? I am honestly puzzled.

See, for example, Zayn, Neiked, Sohn, Alma, 6lack, PartyNextDoor, etc., all of whom are not represented by their stylized all caps names on Wikipedia. Thanks! —Electricnet (talk) 06:46, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Electricnet, don't ask me. As my edit summary states in the move, as I provide one to explain moves that I execute, the move was requested at WP:RM/TR. Thank you. -- AlexTW 06:51, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Sorry for being frank, but are you saying that anyone can request any kind of page move, label it as uncontroversial, and moderators will perform it without looking into whether or not it's actually appropriate? —Electricnet (talk) 11:09, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
AlexTheWhovian, I just researched how to request a revert of the move and made my case for it there. So all is good again, sorry for the trouble, and have a nice day. :) —Electricnet (talk) 11:39, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Electricnet, if the page mover or administrator looking at the page at the time believes it as uncontroversial, then yes, it can be moved. If it becomes controversial, then a request to revert it can be filed, as you did. Cheers. -- AlexTW 13:05, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

Doctor Who episode infobox[edit]

Hi Alex. On Template:Infobox Doctor Who episode for a Doctor Who episode, as I assume you know, it lists both the 1963-89 and the 2005- episode articles at the bottom. As this was unlike the infoboxes on the Doctor Who season articles, I thought I would sandbox the episode infobox and I have made it so that the template doesn't have to list both episode articles, using DWC and DWN for the show parameter instead of DW (see User:TedEdwards/sandbox1 and User:TedEdwards/sandbox2). What I'm asking about though is whether I should edit the template to implement what I've done in my sandboxes (and use AWB to update all the episode articles) or should I just leave the articles as they are? TedEdwards 14:32, 13 October 2018 (UTC)

TedEdwards, why not just list the correct episode list based on the provided story number? Using |number=, everything less than or equal to 156 gets the 1963-89 article, everything else gets the 2005-article. Saves having to use two separate templates, no AWB required. -- AlexTW 14:37, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
O.K. I'll try that out. Thank you. TedEdwards 14:39, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
TedEdwards, no problems. Something like this should work:
{{#ifexpr: {{{number}}} <= {{tmpv|Doctor Who (film)|Infobox Doctor Who episode||number}} | [[List of Doctor Who episodes (1963–1989)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (1963–1989)]] | [[List of Doctor Who episodes (2005–present)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (2005–present)]] }}
Gets the story number and checks if it's less than or equal to the story number displayed in Doctor Who (film). If it is, 1963–1989 article; if it's not, 2005–present article. -- AlexTW 14:44, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Cheers. Unforunately it doesn't work when it's a multi-parter, as the |number= is something like 160a. Any ideas? TedEdwards 14:54, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Actually, as multi parters are only in the new series, would the parameter below be OK, as in this, if the letter causes an error, it defaults to the 2005- article. {{#iferror: {{#ifexpr: {{tmpv|Doctor Who (film)|Infobox Doctor Who episode||number}} >= {{{number}}}| | }} | [[List of Doctor Who episodes (2005–present)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (2005–present)]] | {{#ifexpr: {{tmpv|Doctor Who (film)|Infobox Doctor Who episode||number}} >= {{{number}}}| [[List of Doctor Who episodes (1963–1989)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (1963–1989)]] | [[List of Doctor Who episodes (2005–present)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (2005–present)]] }} }} TedEdwards 15:21, 13 October 2018 (UTC) and can you think of any way to improve it before I implement it? TedEdwards 17:03, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
TedEdwards, there's a template that returns all of the numbers at the start of any string, removing the "a" from "160a", or and references after the number: {{Str number/trim}}. So, going back to my original example, use:
{{#ifexpr: {{Str number/trim| {{{number}}} }} <= {{tmpv|Doctor Who (film)|Infobox Doctor Who episode||number}} | [[List of Doctor Who episodes (1963–1989)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (1963–1989)]] | [[List of Doctor Who episodes (2005–present)|''Doctor Who'' episodes (2005–present)]] }}
So, now instead of just getting the story number, it gets the story number and takes only the digits at the starts, making sure it's a definitive number, then proceeds with all the checks. -- AlexTW 23:55, 13 October 2018 (UTC)
Implemented that change. Thanks for all your help. TedEdwards 12:53, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
TedEdwards, no problems, great work. -- AlexTW 12:58, 14 October 2018 (UTC)

There was an error being generated if the number parameter is not defined. So as a temporary fix, I have omitted the link altogether if no number is given. — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 07:02, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

MSGJ, even better, thank you! That works perfectly for Draft:The Witch Finders as well. -- AlexTW 09:06, 15 October 2018 (UTC)
