Cdfeast

Thanks for the message. Huggle really needs to let you know that you are reverting the original author. Anyway, your strikeout edit conflicted with my apology! Cheers Jim1138 (talk) 01:41, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Oops, should have titled with Cdfeast. Jim1138 (talk) 01:44, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for taking the time to do that. Happy Huggling! LegoKontribsTalkM 01:55, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

prod twice

Well, your prod was removed by the article's creator, so I saw myself as restoring a prod rather than starting the process again. I'm minded to keep the prod as is, since the creator seems willing to engage, and it's less of a sledgehammer than AfD or speedy Jimfbleak - talk to me? 11:43, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Attack pages

Hi. Where a page is a personal attack, like the one from this user just now, don't bother with a BLP-prod, just go straight to {{db-attack}}, which blanks it, puts it in a high-priority queue for admin attention, and generates a suitably fierce warning for the attacker. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 15:06, 1 October 2012 (UTC)

Will do. I guess I was being a bit conservative due to DGG's comments above. LegoKontribsTalkM 03:25, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

blp

FYI... Should never add the {{blp}} template to a talk page. The blp template is now only used by {{WikiProject Biography}}. So, please add the Wikiproject banner instead. Bgwhite (talk) 05:23, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry about that. Template:Blp should probably mention that somewhere. I mainly used it since it much shorter to type when patrolling. I've created {{subst:blps}} which is still short but will use the WP:BIO template. Thanks, LegoKontribsTalkM 05:30, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Thank you. Not every biography gets tagged with the Biography banner, so adding it will help out. Bgwhite (talk) 06:22, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
No problem. I also plan on including BLP/WikiProject tagging in the list of suggestions I am sending to User:Ironholds for page curation feedback. LegoKontribsTalkM 06:30, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
That would be a good idea. There are a few bots and other ways to tag new biographies, but it doesn't catch them all, especially for dead people. Oliver (Ironholds) is out on vacation for a few more days. Bgwhite (talk) 07:24, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
I've thought about the different ways bots could be used to tag articles however they all had too many false positives (using primitive methods). Really all we need is a good NLP. It's on my list of things to think about though. And yup, he mentioned that to me on IRC a few days ago. LegoKontribsTalkM 07:49, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

For your impressive efforts at WP:AfC/R. Thanks, and keep up the good work! Huon (talk) 23:23, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Heh. I just gave this to the editor who requested all of the redirects. Regardless, thank you Huon! LegoKontribsTalkM 23:30, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for the barnstar. I was in a bunch of on-wiki conflict over the weekend, so I decided to get away from all of it for a few days and stay away from WP unless logged out. Couldn't think of anything simpler (or farther from the conflict in question) than requesting a lot of redirects for alternate names. Nyttend (talk) 17:13, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Where is the template to add Legobot to a talk page?

I want to ennable an Archive Index for a talkpage, but I see that HBC Indexerbot was replaced by Legobot's Task 15...and I can't find the code/template to add the Bot to the page, there doesn't seem to be a [[Template:Legobot]]. Lots of discussions about the tasks on-wiki (like Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/Legobot 15) but I've been unsuccessful in finding out what the actual template is to set up the Archive-Indexing. If you could point me to where the code is or just *what* it is, that would be a big help. Thanks and Cheers, Shearonink (talk) 15:06, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

desubst oldafd

What happened with Wikipedia:Bot_requests/Archive_50#Desubstitute_Oldafdfull_and_banners? Did it finish? -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:08, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, forgot about that one. Let me finish it now. LegoKontribsTalkM 22:15, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
I found a few problem pages and fixed them manually, but after doing some digging, it looks like User:SatyrBot screwed up a bunch of templates. Most of these have since have been touched by other editors (been nearly 5 years) so it's near impossible to mass-rollback. I'm modifying the script now to see if I can account for these broken edits. LegoKontribsTalkM 01:02, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
Did a bunch just now, I'm running Legobot 21 which has a bit of priority right now since it's blocking Legobot 22, but in between I'll try and finish this up. LegoKontribsTalkM 05:26, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Ricky Dilliard

which you prodded as being too much like a promotional essay. I took a look at it, and it was obviously professionally written, so I checked the ref to his bio on his blog, and there it was, at http://rickydillardlive.blogspot.ca/2008/01/biography-ricky-dillard.html .I deleted as G12 When something looks both smooth & promotional, I usually find something like that. DGG ( talk ) 03:26, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks DGG. I had PROD'd that as part of an AfC cleanup I was working on, so I wasn't really checking for copy-vios. I'll go back through all of them and check once again. LegoKontribsTalkM 04:15, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Sigma's RFA

Legoktm,
As you know, the RFA at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Σ, of which you were co-nominator, has identified a number of community concerns which may rise above the usual level of past unsatisfactory interactions, conflicts and personal dislikes which are typical of RFA in its current format. In particular there are concerns relating to off-wiki vandalism and on-wiki disruption of which you were presumably unaware at the time of identifying Sigma as a suitable Admin. candidate.
In view of the level of concern relating to the past activities of the candidate, it is sufficiently important to ask you to consider whether you wish to comment on whether the candidate still has the confidence indicated in your nomination statement. There is a section on the RFA Talk Page.
Rgds, Leaky Caldron 11:46, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

I will be raising a qusry as to whether your contacting the nominators in this manner is appropriate. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 12:06, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

I can't find this particular comment section at the RFA, it's gotten so long - where exactly is it? Thanks, Shearonink (talk) 12:36, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
lEGO. Following discussion at WP:AN I wish to withdraw my query above. Your continued support as nominator is a matter entirely for you and your candidate deserves no further negative interventions at his RFA. rgds. Leaky Caldron 15:21, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Enid Event Center

Thanks for editing the article and removing the content violations that I had committed. I do not wish in anyway to violate Wikipedia's policies. I would like some clarification as to why the facts regarding the lawsuits could not be included in the article: was it inappropriate content for the scope of the article, or was it my phrasing that violated NPOV and BLP? I ask this just as a learning question to make sure that I don't make the same mistake in the future! Thanks! Kiddo27 (talk) 22:50, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Soul on Fire

File:James baldwin.jpg
James says there's no excuse for sloppy writing

Hi Legoktm, thanks for your attention to James Baldwin: A Soul on Fire. Categorization and un-orphanizing (adoption) are simple enough. (‎Cambalachero pointed out on DYK that there are some spelling grammar issues, which I will also take care of shortly.) Can you offer some advice on making the article less essay-like? I generally tried to use secondary sources for 'interpretation' of the play. Thanks! groupuscule (talk) 05:00, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I think what I first noticed was The original actors were Charles Reese as James Baldwin and Forrest McClendon as his multi-person counterpart; the director was Chuck Patterson. in the lead section. I'm not sure if that is typical for articles about plays but that seemed odd to me.
I just finished a more thorough read through, and I'm removing the tag now as I don't think it seems that way (just that one sentence). And I bet anyone at DYK can give you better advice than I can. Sorry about that! LegoKontribsTalkM 05:05, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
No problem, and I'm glad you pointed that out, because I worried that the description of "ETHEREAL" as Baldwin's "multi-person counterpart" might be too confusing for the opening. Now I know it's too confusing. So I'll see if there's a better way to word that. Salaam, groupuscule (talk) 05:39, 8 October 2012 (UTC)

Turkish Airlines World Golf Final

Hi. I wanted to know why you added tags on that page. You motivation that was stated is vague and raises no issues. But the tags and warnings you added make the page look like as if there is some kind of a problem here. May I know what that is? Loginnigol (talk) 07:47, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Sure. I added two tags, being an orphan and a POV tag. The orphan one was self-explanatory and has been resolved. The WP:POV tag is definitely vague and arbitrary, but now after reviewing the article I think there was only on major issue, and that was the phrasing of Attracting top ranked players.... I feel like that was trying to "bolster" the status of the competition. Looking at a similar article like AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, I don't see any mention of the players who compete in that lead section.
I think that was it, feel free to remove the tag though if you disagree. LegoKontribsTalkM 05:23, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
OK Thanks. The reason I added the names of players is cuz that was a prominent aspect of the tournament that got it headlines in the first place (a rare lineup of all top 5 players came together despite that the tournament has no prior history of past winners that can be listed (which is what you normally find in other tournament articles) mentioning that gives you an indication of the status of the event.

People On The Moon

I've declined your speedy request, because the band actually does have an article. (I've linked it now.) Probably both band and record are non-notable - the band article is maintenance tagged. You could try prod on the record, or a speedy on the band (followed by prod and AfD in the usual course of events...). Peridon (talk) 23:17, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Ah, my mistake. I tried looking for "Electric Machine" all I found was Electric machine. Probably should have looked harder. I'll go ahead and PROD both articles as being non-notable. Thanks for the heads-up! LegoKontribsTalkM 23:21, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Iraqi Army and the rest of the ISF

Your Data is badly out of date and was incorrect in many ways - especially the structure of the IA. You cite my work but then put data out that I never wrote... [E.G. IGFC is an admin IA staff command and should never have been listed as commanding any of the Joint Operational Commands]

Since most of your Iraqi military data was plagerized from my writings at the Long War Journal - that reflects on me.

Current ISF OOB has been and is updated monthly at Montrose Toast Blog since my parting of the ways with Bill Roggio.

Third World Approaches to International Law (TWAIL)

Sorry to bother you again

I am trying to install the project watchlist on Wikipedia:WikiProject Alberta, but it is not working. I don't mind trying to figure this problem by myself, but don't know where the documentation is. Sorry again. Ottawahitech (talk) 00:39, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

So the reason it failed is because the query is running slowly (it auto-kills it self after 10 seconds). This probably means that the toolserver was just under a high load when you tried running the tool. If that happens again, its probably best to wait around 10 minutes and try again. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do at the moment, the toolserver just can't handle the load. There's a bit more information at m:Future of Toolserver if you are interested in the whole drama with WMDE and WMF. If it does happen in the future and doesn't go away for about 2 hours, let me know and I can try running it manually without the limits. Legoktm (talk) 02:19, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

TWAIL website

The TWAIL wikipedia page is definitely not a manifesto. It is actually very surprising that wikipedia didn't already have an entry for TWAIL as it is a pretty significant movement within the last 10-15 years in international legal theory, with countless articles put out using the approach as well as a number of monographs, conferences, and so forth. In fact, the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) just had a conference and included two panels focusing on TWAIL. Moreover, it is cited by scholars from 'outside' / 'critical of' TWAIL. The critiques that are levied against TWAIL in the wikipedia page are essentially what is usually brought up. I'm at a loss to be honest to understand how this is not a perfectly legitimate entry.

Thanks, what a mess. Yes that full list of "famous" articles to start with that would be a good place to start but I'm exhausted after only doing a couple. Going through and wiping them clean and leaving as stubs would be better, but can you put the articles you cleanup on your watchlist, I'll so the same. Yes, my watchlist is already big, probably yours is too but somebody needs to stop them from infesting again!♦ Dr. ☠ Blofeld 09:29, 25 October 2012 (UTC)

Aye, please elaborate on the policy involved.

Current Hurricane Info bot

From Wikipedia:Bot requests/Archive 50#Current Hurricane Info bot

This is a follow-up from the request for a bot to automatically replace current hurricane information.

It has been a week and nobody has replied, so... here I am! :)

For practical testing: Unfortunately, there are no currently active hurricanes in NHC regions, but I do believe there is a cyclone in the west Pacific. I guess this is what testing and sandboxes are for...

Anyway, back on topic – if you have time and are willing, I would appreciate your help – no pressure.

Thanks,

Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 20:43, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Hm, this makes it a little bit difficult. So I found this, but I'm not sure it's the exact format of when the hurricane is active, which is what I need to test on so I can make sure the bot can parse it.
I quickly browsed the NHC website and didn't see anything about a cyclone, but I could have easily missed it.
Going though and old version of the page, I found this basic source:
{{Infobox hurricane current
|name=Tropical Storm Nadine
|time=11 a.m. [[Atlantic Standard Time|AST]] (1500 [[Coordinated Universal Time|UTC]]) September 18<!-- SAME DAY, AST AND UTC: TIME AST (TIME UTC) DATE.
DIFFERENT DAYS, AST AND UTC: TIME AST DATE AST (TIME UTC DATE UTC) ///NOTICE THE DATE UTC INSIDE THE PARENTHESIS NOT OUTSIDE-->
|category=storm
|type=tropical storm
|image=Nadine Sept 17 2012.jpg
|track=14L 2012 5day.gif
|location=[[latitude|34.4°N]] [[longitude|32.9°W]] ± 20 nm<br />About 410 mi (665 km) [[southwest|SW]] of [[The Azores]]
|1sustained=50 [[Knot (speed)|knots]] (60 [[mph]]; 95 [[km/h]])
|gusts=60 knots (70 mph; 110 km/h)
|pressure=990 [[mbar]] ([[hPa]]; 29.23 [[inHg]])
|movement=[[northeast|NE]] at 7 kt (8 mph; 13 km/h)
}}
Ignoring images, those are the only fields the bot should be updating right?
My basic idea for the bot was this: The bot watches a page like User:Legobot/Current hurricanes every hour or so. A human editor adds the link to NHC and the article as soon as the hurricane "becomes active"? The article would need to already have the {{Infobox hurricane current}} template (but it could be empty). It then continues to update every hour (or whatever time interval is appropriate) and stops when someone removes the link from the subpage.
How does that sound to you? The only thing I need to build the bot is well, a hurricane (or a NHC report during a hurricane). LegoKontribsTalkM 04:05, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
More things to think about: the bot should be able to do tropical storms too right? I'm curious as to how the NHC differs reports for hurricans versus tropical storms. LegoKontribsTalkM 04:07, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
Sorry for not replying sooner. I will try to answer your questions in order:
A sample advisory would be this. There is no current cyclone, but this is an archive of one.
Yes, basically all the fields would be updated, except name (maybe bot could update "Tropical storm" only and not "Nadine" ? Or I could just change the template), type (dependent on the type of basin), image, and track, which can be done by a human.
The link to a tropical cyclone remains the same throughout the storm's live-time, so I guess a human editor can supply that.
The interval of updating varies (maybe a human could set this?):
  • 6 hours if no watches/warnings issued (roughly 65% of the time)
  • 3 hours if watches/warnings issued (roughly 34% of the time)
  • 2 hours if near major landfall (only about 1% of time)
Hurricanes and tropical storms have the exactly same advisory format (this applies to both Atlantic and East Pacific basins).
Thank you so much for your help! –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 04:21, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
Do you have any updates regarding this? Here are some updates that I have about the template:
  1. A new tropical storm (Patty) is now active in the Atlantic basin
  2. I have made some changes to the parameters of the template
–– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 21:15, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

Awesome! I assume this is the right page? Things I can easily parse

  1. Date/time (do I leave this in EDT/UTC or convert to EST/UTC?)
  2. location
  3. Sustained winds (Can't see gusts anywhere)
  4. MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1005 MB...29.68 INCHES (assuming this is the |pressure param)

Where does it state the category? I don't see that.

Writing a bunch of code now. LegoKontribsTalkM 07:06, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes, that is the right page (currently).
Date can vary depending upon where the hurricane is, so I think we should just use what the advisory uses.
Gusts, unfortunately, are listed on another page (Fcst Adv). At the moment, I don't think gusts are that important. However, the general rule is that gusts are 10 kt. stronger than the sustained winds.
Category is not always clearly marked – maybe it could be determined by the wind speed?
Face-smile.svg Thank you again! –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 07:16, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Err, the url will change in the future? I was hoping it didn't. Do you know if/when it will change? And what specifically about the url will change? Or if it will be totally different?
Sure, assuming I use the NHC specification on Hurricane#Hurricane_or_typhoon this chart? LegoKontribsTalkM 07:21, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
I meant that the url for that hurricane – the url stays the same as long as the hurricane is active. Sorry if I was a bit unclear.
Yes, that chart has all the info.
–– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 07:28, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Phew, gotcha. See User:Legobot/Current hurricanes for the specification I laid out. Should be pretty simple.
Also, right now Tropical_Storm_Patty is a redirect to a section in 2012 Atlantic hurricane season. I am assuming the intention of the bot is to update the infoboxes in that table, as well as if/when it get's its own article? LegoKontribsTalkM 07:34, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
The specification looks very straightforward. The infobox will always exist on the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, but if the storm is notable enough, it may have its own article. How can it handle that? –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 07:41, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
I might be offline for several hours, but I will get back later, OK? –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 07:49, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good. I'll try and figure out something about the double infobox situation. I should have enough information to finish the code and file a BRFA though. LegoKontribsTalkM 08:06, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Is there a way to detect whether the wiki-link is a redirect or not? –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 15:26, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I'm planning to do. As an update, this bot is a bit more complicated than I initially expected so it's taking a bit more time. I should be done in a few days. LegoKontribsTalkM 20:20, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
Great! If there is anything I can do to make the process more simple, please let me know. –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 21:44, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Questions

  • What does the |type= do? What are the values that it can take?
Values can be the following:
  • tropical storm
  • subtropical storm
  • tropical depression
  • subtropical depression
  • hurricane
These values are normally determined by the wind speed – excluding the subtropical ones. The advisory header should indicate the type, but I agree this may be a slight issue.
The links should really be going to something like Compass rose; I don't know why that has happened.
  • Would you like the bot to update the |name= if it gets upgraded to a hurricane? (this may or may not be possible, depends on some other factors I haven't figured out yet.)
If possible, yes. However, I could just modify the template to use the above-mentioned type parameter.
  • What should happen to fields that the bot doesn't update? (I'm mainly thinking of |gusts= here)
Well, gusts could possibly be determined by the wind speed (gusts is always 10 kt above the wind speed), but the conversion to miles/km could be an issue. The gusts are a bit ambiguous in the advisories, and I honestly think that this parameter should be phased out.
Also, for the rest of fields that it cannot update, it can simply leave them alone.
  • I would rather not use something like |lat=16.3|N|lon=117.5|W because I know that the parser is going to mess it up. While I understand this is visually appealing, could we modify it to something like {{{1|{{{latd}}}}}} (d stands for direction, but anything else would work too) so I could have the bot do something like: |lat=16.3|latd=N|lon=117.5|lond=W
There was a debate about this when I changed the template recently, and I did try to make it visually appealing. The parameters are currently unnamed 1 and 2, but we can name them if necessary.
  • For the timestamp, when should AST/ADT be used?
Whatever timestamp that the advisory uses can be used (typically AST/ADT along with UTC). The time zone varies depending upon where the cyclone is located.

I'll probably add a few more as I finish up the code. Legoktm (talk) 13:50, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

I have tried my best to answer these questions, and I must admit that these could potentially be issues. However, I can modify the template a bit if necessary. Face-smile.svg Thank you –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 16:05, 17 October 2012 (UTC)

How does this look to you? I'm a bit concerned about having no newlines in between coordinate parameters, but I can hack around it. Legoktm (talk) 05:49, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
That looks pretty good, and I think we won't really have to change those parameters that often (N and W most of the time). The template is not currently being used anywhere at the moment (two active cyclones died today), so we can make the change to the template – we will have to update the docs, of course. Also, I don't know of any way to get Template:Coord to work with line breaks between its parameters. And finally, I have never used that special page that you linked to – I usually just link to the revision history directly – kind of an interesting feature! –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 06:04, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
Well the way I designed the fix, is so that the existing format still works, its just that the bot can use this alternative method. I'll look into how Coord works to see if it's possible to workaround. And I've never used it either, it was just linked on Template:Infobox_hurricane_current/sandbox.
I'm pretty much done with parsing all the data from the NHC reports, and I'm working on the editing the infoboxes part right now. Legoktm (talk) 06:13, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
OK, that's great! –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 06:20, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

New goal is to get this operational before Sandy hits. Current status of code is 80% done. Legoktm (talk) 17:35, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

BRFA has been approved for a trial on Hurricane Sandy. I have a few things left to fix up in the code, but we should be ready for a live trial when the next report comes out. Legoktm (talk) 19:42, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Something I need to mention: Hurricane Sandy right now is such an important storm that updates are being released every hour now [1], but the main advisories are still being released every three hours. –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 20:03, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Aaaaaargh. Of course they do something special for this. Will adjust. Thanks for the note. Legoktm (talk) 20:05, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Ran it under the wrong account, how did [2] look? Legoktm (talk) 20:09, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Pretty good, minus the category 2 thing (which I believe you have been looking into already).
As far as advisories go, one more advisory at 11 p.m. EDT is expected, and two updates at 7 and 9 are expected. –– Anonymouse321 (talkcontribs) 22:11, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Hurricane infobox bot

Thanks for adding in the update URL for it to grab. If you didn't notice it in the revision history, the storm strength came out as cat 2 rather than cat 1 (obviously just a simple bug in your script, looking at it), and the timezone was assigned incorrectly as AST... It looks like it only uses AST from your script, but since the hurricane is affecting an area that's primarily in EDT, that's the standard being used at the moment. Maybe add timezone as a command line option? (Or just hardcode it to EDT for now.) – 2001:db8:: (rfc | diff) 20:20, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

Hardcoded to EDT for now, will check on category bug. Legoktm (talk) 20:23, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Also, after reading your talk page message and going to User:Legobot/Current_hurricanes, it seems it only uses one URL? (And it doesn't look like the code would handle just adding a second one in.) I don't think that will work properly, because the interim updates aren't announced when a normal update is. So it needs to check both [3] and [4] and pick the newer one, I think. – 2001:db8:: (rfc | diff) 20:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Ok so I'm seeing MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...90 MPH...150 KM/H and according to the NHC scale in Hurricane#Hurricane_or_typhoon, that should be a category 2. Am I reading something wrong here?
Right now it only supports one url. Give me 10ish minutes and I'll code in support for a second one. Legoktm (talk) 20:37, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Those numbers don't match up properly; I think it's meant to be a comparison of the various systems, so they're misaligned somewhat. The number at Saffir–Simpson Hurricane Scale are correct. – 2001:db8:: (rfc | diff) 20:40, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Fixed in this commit. I'll work on the double URL thing now. Legoktm (talk) 20:48, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Great. Thanks for coding this up; I was actually thinking of similar, but I'm too lazy. :) It might be nice to update the main body info as well if you feel up to adding that, since the only extra thing you have to scrape is the wind extent data. – 2001:db8:: (rfc | diff) 20:55, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
See the new format at User:Legobot/Current hurricanes. It now supports up to two urls, and picks the most recent one (see this edit).
The main body info is a whole 'nother challenge, and I probably won't have enough time to get to it. Legoktm (talk) 20:59, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
I see it did the 5PM update nicely. The one thing that's missing is updating the "distance from"...though that's obviously harder to parse since you have to deal with telling things like "ATLANTIC CITY NEW JERSEY" from "NEW YORK CITY", and figuring out what the state is (if even included) for a human-readable format, etc... That's probably more of a pain than the main body, actually. :) – 2001:db8:: (rfc | diff) 21:07, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Once this becomes a thing, it'll be easy! I've spent a lot of time thinking about how I would tackle that problem. What I came up with was hard code the 50 states, match those, then normalize the state name (using python's str.title() method), but not link it. The state would be linked to the respective article. That would avoid linking to the wrong article for the city or a disambig page, but still provides context with the state. How would that sound? I could have that done by Thursday-ish. Legoktm (talk) 21:49, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, that seems like a good way to do it. In the cases where there's no state (e.g., when they just say "NEW YORK CITY"), or when it's a non-US location, you could perhaps see if a Wikipedia article exists that has the right kind of category on it (something containing "city"/"country"/"island" or whatnot.) Though that's obviously fairly complex...a simple option might be to have a list of common non-US places that the NHC uses for the descriptions; e.g., Cape Verde, the Azores, etc; those are a couple that are commonly used to give locations. I imagine the savvy hurricane folks could fill out a list like that pretty easily, to let you do a simple match for a wikilink if it's in the list. (Or grab the archived hurricane reports and uniq the placenames to come up with the common ones, maybe.) Though most of this is just random musing...your idea covers most situations, and us humans can always wikilink the ambiguous ones. – 2001:db8:: (rfc | diff) 22:13, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
