Current Seniority in the U.S. House of Representatives for individual reps[edit]

Do you know a way to create a template where each US rep page can update through a template where someone can change the sequence number in one place and centrally rather than update 435 individual pages? It seems real tedious to do every time someone leaves or dies, not to mention trying to sift through all the watchlist pages. I've been doing 50 at a time, but there has got to be a better way if we want to keep it.... — 11:51, 5 July 2017‎ Pvmoutside

  • Alas, no. But that would be a fascinating script for someone smarter than me!—GoldRingChip 19:55, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

When I made those edits, they had some strange quotes in them by some ip user. SamSennett (talk) 23:27, 5 August 2017 (UTC)

US Judge Succession Box Template?[edit]

I saw that you have been a major contributor to Template:USRepSuccessionBox and Template:U.S. Senator box. Over at Wikipedia:WikiProject United States courts and judges I'm interested in a template for us judges succession. This would cover all levels (district, courts of appeals, and supreme court) and would simply the succession boxes, which are in a very poor state across the project. But I have no experience with this sort of thing. Would you be willing to help @Safiel:, @Snickers2686:, the rest of the project's members, and me out with making a template for this sort of thing? It would ideally cover something like this:

{{s-bef|before=[[Joel Fredrick Dubina]]}}
{{s-ttl|title={{nowrap|Judge of the [[United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit]]}}|years=2017–present}}

Possible parameters would include "predecessor", "successor," what circuit/district, and "start"/"years". I look forward to working with you on this. – JocularJellyfish TalkContribs 02:09, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

  • You would want a parameter that would default to "Judge" unless it was invoked as, as, "Justice".—GoldRingChip 13:10, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
  • Many judgeships are not successive, but some are. Some judges replace others and some are appointed/elected as a group.—GoldRingChip 13:10, 14 August 2017 (UTC)
  • As with all succession boxes, I believe the dates should include the month & day, not just the year.—GoldRingChip 13:10, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

United States Senate elections, 1940 and 1941[edit]

Please check your last edit, you have duplicated nearly the whole article! --GünniX (talk) 05:25, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

  • Whoops! Fixing. Thanks. —GoldRingChip 13:01, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

Maine's 2nd congressional district[edit]

Hello. Not sure if you're the right person to ask, but I'd like to figure out if the Aldric Saucier mentioned as an independent candidate at Maine's 2nd congressional district is the same person as the whistleblower. I don't see in-line references. Are you able to find an RS please? I looked for him on but the newest matches are all from 1992.Zigzig20s (talk) 18:36, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

I have found this, but there's no bio, so I can't add it to his article.Zigzig20s (talk) 18:56, 26 August 2017 (UTC)
  • I suspect the two are the same person, as you do. I would continue on that assumption, until you discover otherwise. I found no other reliable sources. —GoldRingChip 21:40, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Admin confidence survey[edit]


Beginning in September 2017, the Wikimedia Foundation Anti-harassment tool team will be conducting a survey to gauge how well tools, training, and information exists to assist English Wikipedia administrators in recognizing and mitigating things like sockpuppetry, vandalism, and harassment.

The survey should only take 5 minutes, and your individual response will not be made public. This survey will be integral for our team to determine how to better support administrators.

To take the survey sign up here and we will send you a link to the form.

We really appreciate your input!

Please let us know if you wish to opt-out of all massmessage mailings from the Anti-harassment tools team.
