Letter from Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong[edit]

Dear Jc86035,

Thank you for your interest in our user group. To obtain the status as a Wikimedia User Group, we have to make a decision on our mission. A member of the user group put forward a motion to amend the provisional missions proposed in March 2017 since i) it is unable to reflect the user group’s actual operation and social situation and ii) it has never been endorsed by a majority of members of the user group. You are welcome to endorse or discuss on this motion on Meta (link.) We look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Spring Roll Conan ( Talk · Contributions ) 15:02, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

The consultation on the proposed amendments to the user group's mission will end on Sunday, 20th May. You are encouraged to comment on our meta page. As a reminder - two-third majority is require to have the motion passed. Regards, --Spring Roll Conan ( Talk · Contributions ) 14:06, 6 May 2018 (UTC)
The consultation on the proposed amendments to the user group's mission has ended. However, the results can't be confirmed instantly due to errors in my statement. You are welcome to comment on ways to deal with it on our meta page. Regards, --Spring Roll Conan ( Talk · Contributions ) 14:28, 1 June 2018 (UTC)

A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png For being WP:Bold and cleaning up my template User:DBigXray/ref. Thanks DBigXray 16:14, 18 June 2018 (UTC)

Adjacent stations[edit]

Can the new template use completely custom messages in boxes? That would come in handy for Tokyo's many through services, or any other through service for that matter. Cards84664 (talk) 15:29, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

@Cards84664: Where are you putting your custom messages? {{Adjacent stations}} can already handle |through= (here the lines aren't linked because they don't have their own articles yet).

If you want you can also arbitrarily swap the termini, but I haven't done it because most of the lines in this system are shown south-to-north. If you meant you were to add text which isn't a line label, I think you would need to add an extra line definition to Module:Adjacent stations/RTA Rapid Transit (if it existed). Jc86035 (talk) 15:35, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
For cases like yours, instead of having custom text you could alternatively have two rows which are identical except one row has |through4=Blue and the next has |through5=Green. Jc86035 (talk) 15:37, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
I think what especially needs custom text is the Chicago L near the loop elevated, because of the orange and brown lines swapping identities between stations during morning rush hours Cards84664 (talk) 15:57, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

@Cards84664: It's definitely possible to make this with {{Adjacent stations}}. The template also has |note-left(n)= and |note-right(n)=; and you can also enter arbitrary termini in |type-left(n)= and |type-right(n)= for lines without alternate termini*: |type-right=Cottage Grove or Ashland/63rd (as an example) would return something that looks like "Cottage Grove or Ashland/63rd".
You might want to remove the <small> tags – they contravene WP:FONTSIZE. Jc86035 (talk) 16:17, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
* It's more complicated than that, but that's basically how it works: If there are no alternate termini and the module finds "or" or "via" in the text, then it splits the links. Jc86035 (talk) 16:17, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
