Disambiguation pages with links[edit]

Hi! Wanted to ask one question about Disambiguation pages with links. How did you deal with redirects? I have a similar query for Latvian Wikipedia, where redirects are ignored, but it would be nice to include them. Maybe you could post the SQL query here? --Edgars2007 (talk/contribs) 11:58, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

PAGANISM a recognised religion in europe but not in america. Why not?[edit]

Why are pagans persecuted and derided in America? Why is paganism not taught in schools in Britain? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:56, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Mobile friendlier[edit]

Put <meta name="viewport" content="initial-scale=1.0"> on every dplbot page and iOS Safari/Android will stop rendering pages to a virtual 980px wide screen (Its all very IEtastic). — Dispenser 00:15, 9 November 2015 (UTC)

Move watch down?[edit]

JaGa, I think Move Watch is down again, as no longer seems to be returning any results. Just so you know... --IJBall (contribstalk) 07:19, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

DPL Bot links[edit]

Hey JaGa. The dablinks and dab solver links used by DPL Bot don't seem to be working anymore (I get a 404 at least). I think it should be a simple fix, just change, for example with dab solver, to Likewise with dablinks, the change would be from to Cheers, Jenks24 (talk) 13:38, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

An expanded bot role[edit]

Could DPL Bot take on the role discussed here? Or could you help to create a bot for that role? Thanks! Swpbtalk 17:25, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

So I tried quickly building it off my mosdab_checker.js script. It shows the before and after status of an article. Its a long way from being bot ready. — Dispenser 04:40, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

List of California Colleges and Universities[edit]

Silly Bot - you removed all of the counties that Wikipedia asked for in the page "List of California Colleges and Universities" ... I spent a lot of time adding them. I will try again so please don't delete the counties. Backgammom (talk) 01:45, 24 November 2015 (UTC)Backgammom

(talk page stalker) @Backgammom: Silly human. First of all, there is no page called List of California Colleges and Universities. I guess you probably meant List of colleges and universities in California. Second, JaGa's bot didn't remove anything from that page. The human user who did revert your edit left you a message on your user talk page saying what he did, and why he did it. Perhaps you overlooked it. --R'n'B (call me Russ) 11:11, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for calling to my attention my inadvertent error on the Newburgh (town), New York page. You are 100% correct. It was NOT my attention to link to a disambiguation page. I believe I have now corrected it. I did not know Mr. Gross was a former resident of Newburgh until I read his obit in the New York Times last week. I am now searching for that newspaper so that I can add it as a source. Nghtownclerk (talk) 15:00, 24 November 2015 (UTC)nghtownclerkNghtownclerk (talk) 15:00, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

Advice on the Teamwork Barnstar[edit]

Greetings JaGa.

If you'll kindly check my talk page you'll see that another user recently awarded me a Barnstar. While I much appreciate barnstars (as evidenced from my user page), I fear this particular case is inappropriate because the barnstar he used was the Teamwork Barnstar, and it does not appear that it was given to any other users as part of a "team". I was about to graciously decline when I decided to look up the origin of the Teamwork Barnstar in order to help craft my declination message. I see in the archives that you are the originator of this barnstar and that your initial proposal had that it could be given to an individual. As the progenitor of this award I'd like to know your thoughts, should I decline it or do you still believe it can be given to an individual?

Ironically when I finally get some time to look over all his work on the VAW squadrons I was going to either give that user a barnstar and/or nominate him for a wikiproject level award (I just don't have time in this part of the year)

Suggested improvements- meat before fluff[edit]

The bot works really well- I rely on you messages but have you ever considered making it less verbose- after nearly 20,000 edits I don't need a welcome, or to shilly shally around. I just want the meat. I am concerned that the email tells me on the first line - the article name, and gives a link to dabsolver. This is so I can see the meat in the email summary without having to open it. Similarly in the message- it is a bit jarring for a serial offender- how about

Hi.Looking at Council house, there is a wikilink to Labour party (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver), which is a disambiguation page.
Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles it should be refined.Read the [[User:DPL bot/Dablink notification FAQ|FAQ]]{{*}} Join us at the [[Wikipedia:Disambiguation pages with links|DPL WikiProject]].
