Poop patrol[edit]

Hi Edward, I seem to be getting server errors on ϢereSpielChequers 15:44, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

The errors are caused by a change in the format of replies from the wikipedia search engine. I'm going to modify the code so it works again. Edward (talk) 08:05, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi Edward, I would like to offer this as a tool that other language versions of Wikipedia could use as well as English. Would that require someone from that wiki to run a copy of your code or could you set it up on labs so that people could choose the wiki to run it on? All assuming of course that it is possible to work with the new search engine. ϢereSpielChequers 13:53, 19 January 2015 (UTC)
I can make it work with other languages and with the new search engine, sorry I've not had time to work on it recently. Edward (talk) 18:30, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks that would brilliant, no need to apologise about timing as long as you are still interested, there are of course some tweaks the prototype needs so that I can load my own phrases and indeed words. I started to sort out mangers a while back and this would be great for that. ϢereSpielChequers 21:58, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Hi Edward, just a quick update re presenting this in Mexico. I am now definitely going, and the presentation is on a reserve list of presentations that haven't quite made the schedule but will be slotted in as other presenters drop out due to not getting scholarships etc. I think that means it is quite likely to get on the agenda, and I wondered if you'd have time to get it working again, even if only to the prototype stage? ϢereSpielChequers 16:42, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
Pretty busy right now. Things on my todo list include: a web site for putting questions to candidates in the UK general election, packaging software for Debian and linking OpenStreetMap entities with Wikidata items. Once I've cleared some these items I'll have a go at the poop patrol prototype. Edward (talk) 12:41, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Edward, much appreciated. ϢereSpielChequers 12:21, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Some Assistance Please[edit]

Hi, {{ul|Edward}. Looking for some guidance and/or assistance. I put some suggested edits up on the TransUnion article on its talk page and added them to the page almost three weeks ago and have heard nothing back. Unfortunately, I have a WP:COI and am just trying to be extremely cautious about any edits. I believe the edits are all very straight forward and would be happy to make them myself after someone reviews them and might consider cleaning up a bit after me. I'm still learning. Would be grateful for any guidance.SusanChana (talk) 16:42, 5 June 2015 (UTC)

An apparent bug in the WP:Findlinks tool[edit]

I noticed that the Findlinks tool sometimes suggests edits that have no effect on a page's source code. Can this bug be fixed? Jarble (talk) 01:54, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the report. I've fixed the bug. Edward (talk) 09:22, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
