Footnote preview—possible enhancement?[edit]

First, many, many thanks to you, PiRSquared17, and TheDJ for adding the reference preview function. So helpful!

It would be lovely to have similar functionality when using List-defined references as well, however. I realize that since the references are defined outside the section being edited, it may never be possible to call a preview of them when previewing the article section in which they are cited. However, it would be marvelous if, when editing and previewing the section where they are defined, a preview was available of how they will appear in the reference list in the same order in which they are defined, rather than the order in which they occur in the article. Since they're wrapped inside the {{reflist}} template, this may not be possible, but the answer to the unasked question is always "no", is it not?

Thank you all again!!!

The ability to preview references defined outside the section being previewed (whether list-defined or defined in another section) is being worked on (in gerrit:267515). The most significant obstacle at the moment are database issues so I don't know when we'll have this deployed. Providing a preview of list-defined references in the section where they are defined is quite easy actually, I've done this in gerrit:273141, though this still needs to be reviewed. They appear in the order where they are defined. You're welcome. Cenarium (talk) 00:00, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
@D'Ranged 1: The commit is live! List-defined references can now be previewed in the section where they are defined. Cenarium (talk) 19:51, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Many, many, many thanks! This will make using LDRs easier and hopefully more widespread. (I'm biased in favor of them in case that wasn't obvious.) Kudos and great appreciation to everyone who made this happen!

Cascading Page Creation from a Template[edit]

Hi, I previously asked you a question regarding the PROTECTIONEXPIRY, since you seem to be extremely knowledgeable and friendly I figured I would inquire with you once again about a different topic.

I have been setting up some templates that are used to create articles and give them a layout, part of this involves creating additional articles related to that article, these additional articles are always present but are created with {{PAGENAME}} in the article title, these related articles are also setup with a particular layout. So my question is, is there a way to cascade create these related articles once I create the new originating article using {{subst:}}

Not possible just by using {{subst:}}, you would need to do this with javascript and the writeAPI. Cenarium (talk) 22:01, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

AN mention[edit]

Hi Cenarium. In case you didn't get my ping, I just wanted to note that I quoted your Village Pump proposal creating the 30/500 usergroup during an AN discussion. Not sure if AN notifications are required for tangential mentions, so my apologies if this message was unnecessary. Altamel (talk) 20:44, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I've commented there. Cenarium (talk) 22:07, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

An editor has asked for a discussion to address the redirect Future lorenz. Since you had some involvement with the Future lorenz redirect, you might want to participate in the redirect discussion if you have not already done so. Steel1943 (talk) 23:38, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

Abuse filter[edit]

Hi, because of an irritating AbuseFilter bug, we (Kaldari, MusikAnimal and I) are going to do an update next week that will affect one of your filters. We hope we'll fix all affected filters ourselves, but we're of course grateful if you want to help us. The issue is explained here; the current plan is here. In any case, we wanted you to be aware what's happening, and you're very welcome to help out of course. I'm sending you an email with more details. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:33, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
