Copyright violations module for wikiprojects[edit]

@Harej and Doc James:, as we discussed in Wikimania about wikiproject module for copyright violations, there is now infrastructure for getting the last suspected edits:

What do you think of creating a wikiproject module with top 5 or top 10 edits referring to this page? We can consider to try it in WikiMed project as "Eating your own dog food". Eran (talk) 19:05, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Sure. Lets add it to WP:MED. We would like the 10 number. Would be nice to allow different WP to set the number differently. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 06:00, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Eran and Doc James, I am not entirely sure what you are asking for. Your link does not work—what does this API do? If it gives me a list of pages suspected to have copyright infringement, I could pair that with my own table pairing articles and WikiProjects. If you would like this service for WikiProject Medicine, I can work on it, though keep in mind I have a bunch of other things to work on at the moment. In any case, I am now tracking it as a feature request in Phabricator if you would like to follow along there. Harej (talk) 15:47, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Women in Red[edit]

Werner projection SW.jpg Formal merge proposal
There is currently a merge discussion at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Women in Red#Formal merge proposal. As you are a member of WiR, this is a courtesy notification in case you want to join in the discussion. Thank you. Rosiestep (talk) 02:37, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi @Harej:. I really think you need to give us some feedback on the progress you are making on the automated approach to red links from other language wikis in connection with this project. I think your approach has great potential but it is likely to be swamped by merging with WP:Women unless you can provide a status report. How much longer will it take to provide usable results?--Ipigott (talk) 18:01, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Hello Ipigott! Here is the report for Wikipedia:WikiProject Women scientists. Women in Red is next! Harej (talk) 05:43, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
@Harej: Thanks. This certainly seems to indicate substantial progress. As far as I can see, you have automated the listing of articles about women scientists from the Czech Republic. Do you intend to initiate a country-by-country development for Women in Red too? It sounds to be like an interesting approach.--Ipigott (talk) 06:21, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Ipigott, the Czech Republic wasn't targeted specifically; I had the report cut off after the first 100 entries and they happened to be predominantly Czech figures. (Wikidata entries are often created in batches, it seems.) I may want to randomize it so that we have some others represented as well. One idea I had (I will bring it up with the rest of the project) is to have individual lists for different specific WikiProjects (Women Scientists, Women Writers, etc.), and then have them all aggregated together through the Women in Red project. Would that be a useful approach? Harej (talk) 16:54, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
While I think they should all be included in the Women in Red project, I think there is something to be said for keeping the lists separate, unless you can use the Wikidata descriptions to identify the main field(s) of involvement of each individual. But you should ask for feedback from the project as a whole. In any case, I think we need to trial the system over a reasonable period to find the best way of presenting the results.--Ipigott (talk) 07:32, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
James, I like that. Aggregating them would be ideal. Lots of fun stuff to figure out I'm jazzed at the possibilities! --Rosiestep (talk) 14:30, 19 August 2015 (UTC)


Hi! As the project founder of Wikipedia:WikiProject Socialism, is there any change that Wikipedia:WikiProject X will come around and "save" it? .. A tip (even if you've probably discovered this out yourself), you should get bots to update the WP project pages (individual users won't...) .. Keep up the great work. --TIAYN (talk) 09:40, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Hello TIAYN! Sure, I can consider WikiProject Socialism for the next round of pilot tests. (And yes, much of my work has been focused on automated maintenance.) Harej (talk) 17:49, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

WikiProject category migration[edit]

Hi, re this edit and others: please don't (i) insert blank lines after {{DEFAULTSORT:}}; (ii) move <!--...--> comments away from the lines to which they relate. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:07, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Redrose64. Thank you for your report. The bot uses a pywikibot library for adding/removing categories. Disappointing to see that it messes up the formatting like that on certain pages. I will have to investigate. Harej (talk) 23:34, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
