Monobook[edit]

You may wish to make use of a 'Dates' tab in edit mode that will help with unlinking unnecessary date links. Simply copy the entire contents of User:Bobblewik/monobook.js to your own monobook. Then follow the instructions in your monobook to clear the cache (i.e. press Ctrl-Shift-R in Firefox, or Ctrl-F5 in IE) before it will work. It also provides a 'Units' tab. If you know what you are doing, you can copy and modify the subfiles as you wish. I just thought you might be interested. Regards. bobblewik 20:03, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

The reason it fails is because you refer to User:Hmains/monobook.js/dates.js and User:Hmains/monobook.js/unitformatter.js and these articles do not exist. You have two options:

Reviewer Right Granted[edit]

Wikipedia Reviewer.svg

Hello. Your account has been granted the "reviewer" userright, allowing you to review other users' edits on certain flagged pages. Pending changes, also known as flagged protection, is currently undergoing a two-month trial scheduled to end 15 August 2010.

Reviewers can review edits made by users who are not autoconfirmed to articles placed under pending changes. Pending changes is applied to only a small number of articles, similarly to how semi-protection is applied but in a more controlled way for the trial. The list of articles with pending changes awaiting review is located at Special:OldReviewedPages.

For the guideline on reviewing, see Wikipedia:Reviewing. Being granted reviewer rights doesn't change how you can edit articles even with pending changes. The general help page on pending changes can be found here, and the general policy for the trial can be found here.

If you do not want this userright, you may ask any administrator to remove it for you at any time. The Helpful One 17:59, 28 June 2010 (UTC)

I follow the directions in the message shown on the screen.

On my computer I have to remember that "refresh" looks like a circle with an arrow at the top, and it's the fourth of five icons to the right of the URL. I don't even know what the others are.

Adminship[edit]

Since you are very active in the project, would you like to be an administrator? Do you need tools to move/delete pages for example? Are you active in WP space, involved in xFDs or something similar? -- Magioladitis (talk) 07:03, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I'll second Magioladitis here. I think you'd do fantastic as an administrator. The choice is entirely yours, but just know that should you ever submit an RfA, you'll have my support. Kurtis (talk) 03:53, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks to you both, but I think I would lose interest in WP doing admin things. Hmains (talk) 03:56, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
Understandable. Do whatever you feel comfortable doing, it's not my place to pressure you.
But in the off chance that you ever change your mind, know that I would feel confident in entrusting you with the tools. =) Kurtis (talk) 04:05, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

problem[edit]

Whatever it is, this problem has not been fixed and there seems to be no activity by the people responsible for this mess to fix it. Hmains (talk) 02:13, 19 September 2013 (UTC) Hmains

I'm sorry that you're still having this frustrating problem. BJorsch named above the three different places where this problem may be caused: 1.your own computer, 2.the WMF's servers, or 3.a server in between you and the WMF's servers.

Each user is necessarily responsible for cacheing problems that appear in his own browser. Please follow all the steps at WP:BYPASS and let us know if that (hopefully!) solves the problem for you. If the problem is the WMF's caches, then it will likely be fixed relatively soon. If the problem is at a third-party server in between you and the WMF (e.g., on your corporate or university network or your local ISP), then I'm afraid that there is often nothing that either you or we are able to do about it except wait for the third-party server to update its cache.

AWB: mass category creation[edit]

Can AWB create mass categories? E.g. i need to create categories from ”Football clubs established in 1900” to ”Football clubs established in 2020”. Each category must have 2 categories- parents, one stable ”Football clubs establishements by year” and second incrementable ”Establishements in {{year}}", where {{year}} has value from 1900 to 2020, for each new category incrementation +1. Its possible to do that with AWB? XXN (talk) 19:50, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

@XXN:, yes, check out CSV Loader. You will need to file a BRFA and get approval before you start creating the categories. Ganeshk (talk) 22:42, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
Thanks, but i dont understand how to use your plugin)) I know about bot policy, i will work on ro.wiki, i have already submitted an request for approval. XXN (talk) 23:35, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

Category[edit]

Hi there. Would you have a moment to look at the discussion on User talk:Thewildone85s talk page? I have no beef with this editor's addition of Category:Unincorporated communities in New Jersey. In fact, when you are searching for a place within a state, and you don't know the county, this is the easiest way to find it. It's the "master list". I support this editor's addition, but I know you are more familiar with the use of this category. Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 03:30, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

  • I am not sure what is question. Is something being disputed here? Hmains (talk) 03:39, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Yes. Thewildone85 has added the parent category "Unincorporated communities in New Jersey" to many New Jersey articles; another editor claims they are "unneeded and inappropriate" and plans to delete them. I think adding both the parent and child is a good edit. The parent serves as a "master list". Magnolia677 (talk) 03:55, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
    • This is the same thing I tried to do but the other editor is the self-created 'owner' of New Jersey articles and categories and will not allow anything to happen to them that he disagrees with. He will fight any and all other editors with all the power that he has and do it continually with threats and ill will until he gets his way. Hmains (talk) 04:01, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
That's one of the reasons I asked you to comment. I'm up to my ears here with this editor, so don't want to get in deeper. I actually support the addition of this category though. When I made hundreds of edits to Mississippi articles last year, it was a huge help having each town listed in the parent category. It really is the only way to have a complete list. Otherwise, you need to search through each county. I know this is your area of expertise, so any help would be appreciated. Magnolia677 (talk) 04:20, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
I think the only way to get change is to get admins involved but from what I see they don't want to be involved either as dealing with this editor would take all their time. Hmains (talk) 04:32, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Sadly, it looks that way. Anyway, nice chatting and thanks for your many great edits. Magnolia677 (talk) 04:45, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Bots[edit]


You are receiving this message because a technical change may affect a bot, gadget, or user script you have been using. The breaking change involves API calls. This change has been planned for two years. The WMF will start making this change on 30 June 2015. A partial list of affected bots can be seen here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-June/081931.html This includes all bots that are using pywikibot compat. Some of these bots have already been fixed. However, if you write user scripts or operate a bot that uses the API, then you should check your code, to make sure that it will not break.

What, exactly, is breaking? The "default continuation mode" for action=query requests to api.php will be changing to be easier for new coders to use correctly. To find out whether your script or bot may be affected, then search the source code (including any frameworks or libraries) for the string "query-continue". If that is not present, then the script or bot is not affected. In a few cases, the code will be present but not used. In that case, the script or bot will continue working.

This change will be part of 1.26wmf12. It will be deployed to test wikis (including mediawiki.org) on 30 June, to non-Wikipedias (such as Wiktionary) on 1 July, and to all Wikipedias on 2 July 2015.

If your bot or script is receiving the warning about this upcoming change (as seen at https://www.mediawiki.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allpages ), it's time to fix your code!

Either of the above solutions may be tested immediately, you'll know it works because you stop seeing the warning.

Do you need help with your own bot or script? Ask questions in e-mail on the mediawiki-api or wikitech-l mailing lists. Volunteers at m:Tech or w:en:WP:Village pump (technical) or w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard may also be able to help you.

Are you using someone else's gadgets or user scripts? Most scripts are not affected. To find out if a script you use needs to be updated, then post a note at the discussion page for the gadget or the talk page of the user who originally made the script.

AWB error?[edit]

I've never used AWB, so I don't know how much of an actual problem this is; if you just made a typo, no problem.

Look at this edit, in which you made some link changes, from [[plantation]]-style" complexes to [[plantations in the American South|plantation]]-style" |[[Plantation complexes in the Southeastern United States|complexes]] Note the pipe character after -style". Is this a problem that needs fixing, or is it merely a negligible typo, as it would be if you'd made it when editing manually? Nyttend (talk) 12:52, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the note. I use AWB in a rather simple way. In AWB, I create a list of strings: from-string to-string so that any time the 'from-string' is found, it gets changed to the 'to string'. Because of the infinite variation in how the articles are written, I then may have to add more from/to pairs to clean up the results to help the semi-automated results and reduce the manual corrections/fixes I have to make. In all cases, the results are then presented to me to read, which I can save as-is or perform further, manual, edits before saving or just cancelling the edit completely. AWB results do not distinguish what the table changed versus what I changed manually. And of course, as with any human effort, human errors can be introduced at any point. I see that this ended up somehow with an extra/out-of-place pipe character as you saw. I see you correctly removed it. Do you have other questions about the links I used? Any other questions about AWB? I will try to explain as best I can based on what I am doing. AWB itself seems to be rather error free. Hmains (talk) 03:00, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the details. I have no questions nor comments about that edit, aside from the pipe character. I've never used AWB and really don't know how to make it run, so I figured I'd best just report it in case the report could help. I know it's semi-automated, so I had imagined that it was basically an automated thing that required you to press "OK" or "not-OK" before it saved each edit; I didn't realise that you would be able to do anything else without making a manual edit.

Redundancy in your edit summary is redundant[edit]

Hey Hmains, certainly this falls under the "extremely unimportant" heading, but one of your current edit summaries is a bit redundant: "copyedit,refine category structure, general fixes using AWB using AWB" (emphasis mine). It certainly isn't a problem in any way, but I thought I'd let you know. Take care - Antepenultimate (talk) 22:18, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Categorizing NRHP articles under alternate names[edit]

Can you please explain your rationale for edits such as this? While I understand that you're trying to have the articles appear in their categories under their NRHP name, there's no real need for that, and it hurts navigation for users. NRHP titles for train stations are notoriously awful; many identify only by the railroad name or a general descriptor of the station. Old Colony Railroad Station (used three times!) or Northbound and Southbound Stations don't provide a useful indication to the user of what station they actually are. Furthermore, by removing the categories to the redirect, you are preventing a user on the article itself from being able to use those categories for navigation. WP:RCAT supports adding categorization where appropriate for sufficiently different alternate titles; however, those categories should not be removed from the actual article as you have been doing. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 17:24, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Sorry, I did not read this before I put my categories back to what I had edited. I understand the problem with user navigation, but still think that in NRHP categories there should just be the NRHP name (or something very close to it) and not some current/modern name that may be totally misleading and be very out of place within the category itself. So my change makes the category navigation better if one is looking at the category itself. These are my thoughts. Thanks. Hmains (talk) 18:18, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
  • I understand what you're saying, but a stylistic matter like that should not overrule the needs for actual navigability. Can you provide examples of where the modern name is actually misleading, rather than merely in a different naming convention than most NRHP articles use? I believe you should get consensus at WikiProject NRHP before making any more of such changes. Pi.1415926535 (talk) 18:27, 5 June 2016 (UTC)

If you are still active editing[edit]

You might like to look at the John Yang article. He is no longer at NBC (large NBC template had to go), and his self-published LinkedIn, ABC, and NBC bios, cited throughout, are both non-independent, and (practically), all were deadlinks, and untraceable!. So, nearly all inline citations came out, as nonworking/untraceable, but I added and corrected three (updating and fixing the Chicago Tribune and the Backlot—from deadlinks—and adding a PBS, so his latest job is sourced).

Bottom line, the article looks bad because none of its earlier citations / links were valid or working, but it is improved in that the citations that are there, are all good, and properly formatted. Take a look if it interests you. Cheers. Le Prof Leprof 7272 (talk) 00:19, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't know if that is enough justification for putting the park in the NRHP category. I'm not good with categories so I'll leave that up to you. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 01:27, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks. What I saw was that Camp Lawton (Georgia) is in the proper NRHP categories but nothing saying that Magnolia Springs State Park itself is listed in the NRHP--only that it had a NRHP entity in it. I not seen geographical locations placed in NRHP categories just because the location includes a NRHP entity within it. Think of where what would go if were done! The NRHP categories would no longer be places that readers could go to for other NRHP entities--almost anything might be found there. Hmains (talk) 01:37, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
I agree. Bubba73 You talkin' to me? 01:43, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for July 11[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Communist Party USA, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Revisionism (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

AWB[edit]

Hi, I know AWB allows lots of edits quickly. Please be careful and check what you do though. If a category you are making is red, it needs to be corrected. There is no Clark County, Georgia (but there is a Clarke). :) LadyofShalott 04:37, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks for noticing and fixing, I am just using AWB here to identify what articles to work on and then making manual changes while in AWB. Human error on my part: reading one screen and then typing on another. And unfortunately AWB never shows red links or red categories--not built into it. Hmains (talk) 04:44, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
That is an unfortunate lack. LadyofShalott 04:47, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
I very much agree. Hmains (talk) 04:50, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject Wildfire[edit]

Information icon

Hello! I have recently started a new WikiProject and am trying to recruit new members. The project, WikiProject Wildfire, focuses on articles that relate to wildfires. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. From updating templates, to classifying and improving articles. Any level of commitment is welcome! If you care to just add some input on the founding of the new project, awesome. If you would like to take an active role in editing articles, that is awesome as well! Knowledge of wildfires is NOT a prerequisite for joining the project. In fact, it would be great to have some members of the project who are NOT fire-buffs. That way we make sure that articles aren't just written by and for people in the fire community. If this is something you have any interest in, I would love to have you join the project! Please feel free to join the discussion or leave me a message on my talk page. (Note that you are receiving this message from me because I saw you made multiple edits on a wildfire related page, specifically Old Fire. Not just spamming you at random.) Hope you have a great day!

Renaming categories[edit]

Hello. Re: your recent move of Category:City_halls_in_Virginia. The way to move a category to another name is through the Wikipedia:Categories for discussion procedure. If it's something relatively trivial like a typo or bringing a category name in line with others in the hierarchy then you can use the speedy rename procedure which has bots to help you with the mechanics of it rather than having to do it manually. Also it's good to run these kinds of things past the community, just in case there's some good reason not to rename that one hasn't spotted. Cheers Le Deluge (talk) 08:27, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

  • Yes, there are several ways to rename categories; you describe one of them. Hmains (talk) 00:51, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
