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.

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.

Question about talk page archives[edit]

Hi Makyen. Not sure if you remember, but you helped me set up my user talk page archives when I joined Wikipedia a few years back. The archiving has been working fine, but I have been unable to get the User:Marchjuly/Archive index page to work. If possible, I would like to have something along the lines of your User talk:Makyen/Archive index. Do you have any idea how I can set this up? Also, there is a redlink "Archive 1" appearing in my archive box, but I'm not sure what it is for or how to fix it. Any ideas on what to do there? Finally, I would like to be able to navigate from one archive page to another without having to go back to my main talk page. I think this can be done using a template such as {{automatic archive navigator}}, but I'm not sure how to do it exactly. Any suggestions about that would also be most appreciated. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 02:03, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

@Marchjuly: I am happy to help. However, due to some family issues, it is going to be a few days prior to my being able to spend some time on this. You might notice that the archive index on my page is more than a year out of date. Let me start running an experiment on my page to see if one way to get that updated will work (could take a few days to know results). — Makyen (talk) 22:07, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi Makyen. For some reason I just noticed your reply now, so sorry for not responding sooner. Would appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:12, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

Ref supports2[edit]

Hi Makyen. Ref supports2 isn't working at the moment. Do you have any idea why that is? --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 06:01, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

@Anthonyhcole: I'm sorry to hear there is a problem. I should be able to take a look at it tonight. — Makyen (talk) 21:54, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks mate. I'm not really using it because it's not accessible to users of screen readers. But the issue of "What exactly does each citation support?" has come up twice in the last few days - User:Magnus Manske mentioned it on Wikimedia-l here and User:LeadSongDog brought it up here on Meta. I'd like that discussion to grow, if possible, and pointing to your solution makes it easier to explain the problem and visualise potential solutions. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 09:59, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
It is fixed. It was still working on the template documentation page because the copy in the page cache had not been updated. When I purged that page's cache it stopped working there. I have updated the {{Ref supports2}} template and verified it is now working on the pages which use it. If you find somewhere it is still not working, please tell me. I investigated to see what was modified to caused it to break. I suspect it was a change to the MediaWiki software that caused the problem as none of the code above that level had been modified more recently than October 2014. The change I made to {{Ref supports2}} results in it being more robust which should help prevent any additional modifications to the underlying software causing more problems. — Makyen (talk) 11:39, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
Yay! Thank you Makyen. --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 12:25, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
Interesting, thank you. Commented at template talk:Ref supports2. LeadSongDog come howl! 22:01, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
