Wikipedia Help Survey[edit]

Hi there, my name's Peter Coombe and I'm a Wikimedia Community Fellow working on a project to improve Wikipedia's help system. At the moment I'm trying to learn more about how people use and find the current help pages. If you could help by filling out this brief survey about your experiences, I'd be very grateful. It should take less than 10 minutes, and your responses will not be tied to your username in any way.

Thank you for your time,

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
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.

Are you Filipino-American?[edit]

Hi, I noticed that you contribute to Ilokano Wikipedia a lot and I just want to ask if you have Filipino ancestry considering you're from the US. Thank you for your contributions for the Ilokano language. Darwgon0801 (talk) 11:13, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

Greetings Darwgon0801!, personal information I'm willing to share can be found on my user pages, but I'll be more than happy to answer any wiki related questions.--Lam-ang (talk) 16:04, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for your reply. Sorry for the personal asking. Darwgon0801 (talk) 23:19, 17 November 2016 (UTC)

Edit to Module:Autotaxobox/sandbox[edit]

Hi, could you explain the reason for your edit to Module:Autotaxobox/sandbox? I noticed that the sandbox was way out of line with the live version, and so synchronized them, which had the side-effect of undoing your edit. It can be made again if justified.

@Peter coxhead:I was trying to fix this error/testcases with this edit, I wasn’t sure if the error produced by the module is intentional or not, don’t know much about coding Lua but seems to fix it at ilowiki.--Lam-ang (talk) 16:11, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
@Lam-ang: ah, all the test cases used to work, but the taxonomy template this one uses has changed. The code was definitely wrong; the correction required is to change line 256 from local extinct = string.lower(frame.args['extinct']) or '' to local extinct = string.lower(frame.args['extinct'] or ''). If |extinct= is unset in the taxonomy template, then frame.args['extinct'] will have the value nil and so string.lower fails, whereas frame.args['extinct'] or '' will be the empty string, so string.lower works. The conversion to lower case just allows, e.g., |extinct=Yes to mean the same as |extinct=yes. It may not be needed at ilowiki. I've now applied this fix to the live and sandbox versions of the module. Peter coxhead (talk) 16:39, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
