TWA code[edit]

Hi again, Happy New Year! Thanks for helping out with my previous TWA-related query - would you happen to know if/where The Wikipedia Adventure's code repo is? It mentions the scripts were open sourced, and I was guessing they would be up on GitHub somewhere but I'm struggling to find them. Thanks again Face-smile.svg -- samtar whisper 13:57, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

I looked around a little and found Wikipedia:The Wikipedia Adventure/Index#Guide tours. I don't know whether there is more. The author would be the one to ask. PrimeHunter (talk) 16:07, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
You're a star thank you Face-smile.svg I've left the author a message -- samtar whisper 16:12, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
(talk page stalker). Hi Samtar. User:Ocaasi was the Project Manager for TWA back in 2011 or 2012. Are you porting TWA to VisualEditor now? That would be great! Jake Orlowitz might be more accessible now at: User:Ocaasi (WMF). Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 01:46, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

WSS prime non-existence proof[edit]

Hey Jens! I wondered what you made of that non-existence proof. PD seem to be going out of their way to insult everyone who interacts with them. And as far as inclusion of the material in Wikipedia goes, it of course does not matter if that proof is valid, invalid, or simply nonsense, as long as there are no reliable sources which support its conclusion. But I figured that if the proof were tractable then it might be of interest to you. I follow most of the individual statements, but don't follow the logic, though it's been a long time since I've done any number theory. Does it make any sense to you? -- ToE 21:31, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

I haven't examined the details and prefer not to deal with it. PrimeHunter (talk) 11:21, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

1CA now set to "off by default"[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter. I was trying out an Android at 4:07 on Friday and I guess I accidentally clicked archive at the same time I saved an edit at VPT. The archive link is very small on the Android and very close to the submit link. To that end I have now set 1CA to "1CA off by default" since I rarely use 1AC and only on my own Talk page.

As an aside, why does the VPT archive go to the "wrong" archive when using 1CA? 1CA just sends things to the latest archive increment in the archive script on the particular Talk page. PS: 1CA=One Click Archive. Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 01:40, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

@Checkingfax: I have never used OneClickArchiver and don't know anything about it. The author is blocked indefinitely. PrimeHunter (talk) 01:51, 31 January 2016 (UTC)
1CA is pretty nifty. I think the blocked author was a consultant for 1CA and made a parallel version to implement his/her version of how it should work. Too bad s/he got blocked. S/he used to be a very prolific helper on Wikipedia. That is all I know about that situation except I did glean s/he was blocked for mis-using multiple accounts. Sorry for the commotion I caused at VPT. Cheers! {{u|Checkingfax}} {Talk} 02:08, 31 January 2016 (UTC)

A question about the "User Wikipedian for" template[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter.  I have a question concerning templates.  Is it permissible to subst the  "User Wikipedian for" ( {{User Wikipedian For|year=2015|month=5|day=1}} )  template?  The purpose would be to change the colors to something other than the normal (purple) color.  Just to be clear, I'm talking about substing it, saving the page, and then editing the actual wiki code for the template right on my own user page; it would not in any way affect the template for anyone else.  I need to know if there is a policy prohibiting it (or a guideline discouraging it). Also if it is permissible, does that generally apply to all or most templates designed to be used by users in their own user space? Thank you.
Richard27182 (talk) 11:18, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

@Richard27182: There is no problem in that. You have a lot of freedom in your userspace and can generally do this there. Templates sometimes have undocumented parameters you can see in the template source. The source of {{User Wikipedian for}} says:
| border-c = {{{border|#8d40b3}}}
| id       = [[file:Noia 64 apps karm.svg|42x42px|link=<!-- leave empty as this userbox should not link to anywhere by default for privacy reasons -->]]
| id-c     = {{{imgbg|#d9bfe5}}}
| info-c   = {{{bgcolor|#f0e6f5}}}
Code like border-c = {{{border|#8d40b3}}} means you can override the default color #8d40b3 by using the parameter |border=. Same for imgbg and bgcolor. Here is an exampel using named colors but you can also use hex triplets like the default colors:
Noia 64 apps karm.svg This user has been on Wikipedia for 1 year, 2 months and 27 days.
PrimeHunter (talk) 12:18, 14 February 2016 (UTC)


Hi PrimeHunter.  Thank you for your prompt and very informative reply.  I'm glad you mentioned about being able to use added parameters in the normal use of the template to obtain the desired effect without even having to subst the template; in fact that's how I'll probably do it in this case.  But it's also nice to know that, in those cases where substing and editing the template wikicode (in my own user space) would be necessary, it would be OK to do.  Again, my thanks and appreciation.
Richard27182 (talk) 13:08, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

A copyright question[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter.  (For the sake of full disclosure, I just want to mention that I'm asking one or two other administrators this same question.)  In a Wikipedia article about a motion picture, how closely can the plot summary duplicate the plot summary from the Turner Classic Movies website.  Is it OK if it reads basically the same with some words changed here and there?  Or would that be a copyright violation?  I'm asking because I noticed that (as of this writing [11:45, 16 February 2016 (UTC)]) the Plot section of the Wake of the Red Witch article is extremely similar to the plot summary for that film on the website TCM.COM (click READ THE FULL SYNOPSIS).  (There is actually a reference to the TCM website at the end of the Plot section.)   I doubt that it's a problem, because the Wikipedia article has been that way since December of 2008; and I imagine that if there were a problem it would have been detected and corrected by now.  Nevertheless, I'm curious.  Thanks; I appreciate your time.

Purge needed for India ink[edit]

This is the same problem that you fixed for Poi, with the edit link. Thanks for your help. (I've never seen any of these problems before a few days ago. Did something happen to WP's script to make these screw up?) Milkunderwood (talk) 02:14, 4 March 2016 (UTC)

@Milkunderwood: It's a recent issue. The box at the top right of Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Edit section links in article links to phab:T124356. You can purge by yourself. See WP:PURGE. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:00, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I looked at that WP:Purge page when you first mentioned it, relating to Poi. I'm a passer-by, not a dedicated WP editor - I don't even know what "transclude" means, and don't want to know. I stumbled upon two of these things in a row, and it's not my job to fix WP's markup language screwups. Not your job either, of course. I'm happy to leave them be. Sorry if I seem to have a bad attitude - I do fix a lot of easy things as I come across them, but purging is outside of my pay grade. The real issue is, it shouldn't be happening at all, for you, me, or anyone else to have to clean up. With Poi, it wasn't an editor making a mistake, it happened (as far as I could see) from a bot. I don't do bots, either. I come here not to write, with a very few years-old exceptions, but just to look stuff up and read. You say it's a recent issue. If I were you, I'd kick it upstairs for massaging instead of fixing one page after another. Milkunderwood (talk) 05:50, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
@Milkunderwood: I have purged India ink. One way to do it is to add ?action=purge to the url. I have enabled 'Add a "Purge" option to the top of the page, which purges the page's cache' at Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-gadgets. Then I can purge a page with a click. phab:T124356 basically is "upstairs". PrimeHunter (talk) 09:40, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your help. You understand my point is that it shouldn't be happening at all to start with, rather than providing a fix that non-editors (much less noobs) would have to grapple with. It's whatever in the markup language itself that's making this happen that needs to be fixed; purge is just a workaround for individual articles. If it's a recent issue - and it does appear to be - somebody coded it badly. That's what I meant by "upstairs"; users have no interest in phab:T124356. There shouldn't even be a gadget - it ought work correctly internally, all by itself (just like it used to). Neither you nor anyone else wants to go around purging pages, much less trying to explain to users like me how to do it. Milkunderwood (talk) 18:12, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
I often purge pages for different reasons. This recent issue is just one of them. I find it handy to have a one-click purge option. If the software always worked 100% correctly then purging would still be useful sometimes to update a page after a used template has been edited. For performance reasons, all pages using the template are not updated immediately. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:12, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

Followup Rollback question[edit]

Hello PrimeHunter! I saw your recent post to the Help Desk, and it prompts a question. First, let me admit upfront that I don't have Rollback. And one of the reasons I've never bothered with it is because I don't want Rollback links in page histories, Contribs page, or Watchlists! In short, I'd only want to see the Rollback link on a 'diff' page. So, with that in mind, what would the requisite common.css code need to be if I just wanted to see Rollback links on diff pages (only!) look like? Thanks in advance! --IJBall (contribstalk) 03:09, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

@IJBall: In your CSS:
.mw-special-Watchlist .mw-rollback-link {display: none;}
.mw-special-Contributions .mw-rollback-link {display: none;}
.mw-special-Recentchanges .mw-rollback-link {display: none;}
.action-history .mw-rollback-link {display: none;}
I added Special:RecentChanges. PrimeHunter (talk) 09:12, 18 March 2016 (UTC)
Awesome! Thanks! This makes it a lot more likely that I'll request Rollback, at least on a trial basis. --IJBall (contribstalk) 12:52, 18 March 2016 (UTC)

Your draft article, User:AlysonDutch/sandbox[edit]

Hello, PrimeHunter. It has been over six months since you last edited your Articles for Creation draft article submission, "sandbox".

In accordance with our policy that Articles for Creation is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}} or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thanks for your submission to Wikipedia, and happy editing. Legacypac (talk) 16:06, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

regex[edit]

Hello PrimeHunter, how would one go about matching a particular url from a body of text using regex? See Wikipedia:Help desk#List of Essential Mix episodes. For eg., if I wanted to remove both [http://core.thomaslaupstad.com/bbc-radio-1-essential-mix-2010-09-04-swedish-house-mafia-at-creamfields-2010/ Mixes] and [http://er7radio.net/?p=3699 Mixes] in this version, what would be the regex to find everything between "[http://" and "Mixes]" and replace it with white space? - NQ (talk) 18:18, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

@NQ: Search for \[http.*Mixes\] and replace with nothing. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:18, 30 April 2016 (UTC)

Women's Action Coalition and the editor who espouses the cause[edit]

Thanks for joining in on TEA's talk page. I am having a good break from WP after Wikiburnout, and am concentrating on the other things in my life that also were the reason for my withdrawal from ArbCom elections. At present my circumstances mean I would not have been able to do justice to that job at all, which would have been grossly unfair to the community had I been elected.

I do not have the patience at present that I usually have, and cannot be a positive influence in helping this editor, who has reappeared on my talk page. I think they have a limited understanding of WP, and would benefit from their hand being held a little. I hope you may be able to guide them in the correct direction. I'd like to be able to help them myself, but cannot summon the patience genie from its bottle right now. At least I know what I cannot do!

Another few months and I will be back in the saddle again. Too much work at WP:AFC can leave one exhausted, wikipedially. Is that even a word? Fiddle Faddle 16:01, 16 May 2016 (UTC)

@Timtrent: I have offered help at User talk:Tracy ann essoglou#Women's Action Coalition. PrimeHunter (talk) 18:20, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. I think you may need a lot of patience here. As you have seen, TEA seems unable to get past the "The draft is gone" stage and does not examine the facts of the actual article's presence. She seems keen on somehow blaming me for something, which, in my present state of lack of patience, I fear I may become a tiny bit sharp over, were I to reply. Fiddle Faddle 21:03, 18 May 2016 (UTC)


Immense to you both! I have published knowledge of WAC because I am the author of the first and only full chapter covering the movement; Louder Than Words: a W.A.C. Chronicle in But Is It Art? The Spirit of Art as Activism, editor Nina Felshin, Bay Press, Seattle, 1995.

I have zero familiarity with Wiki and am utterly sympathetic to philosophical and technical complexities, exhaustions and misery of dealing with WIKI-illits like myself.

Questions: 1) As published author can I contribute to entry that appears? 2)If not can I sugest to Taylor Kuhn (who I only know from interview that she edit using her more accomplished entry to that which has been accepted? 3) Does WIKI still 'possess' a copy of Taylor Kuhn's submission?

Thank you both! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.175.70.91 (talk) 18:59, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

MediaWiki displaytitle updates[edit]

Hi, I believe updates need to be made to MediaWiki:Duplicate-displaytitle and MediaWiki:Restricted-displaytitle, because a page like User talk:Amortias is not showing up at Category:Pages with disallowed DISPLAYTITLE modifications. I think it's due to the non-ASCII characters used for sorting on the MediaWiki page itself, and the categories don't sort those extra symbols.

The fix would simply be changing those characters to alphanumerics. Does this sound right? — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 01:02, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

Scratch that, it did appear. Sorry to bother you. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 01:07, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: Category:Pages with disallowed DISPLAYTITLE modifications takes time to autopopulate. User talk:Amortias showed up after I made a null edit. In some circumstances like a purge a page can have a category at the bottom without the category displaying the page. A null edit updates the required link tables. I'm not sure why all pages sort under N. PrimeHunter (talk) 01:19, 20 May 2016 (UTC)
Looks like there are numerous titles that will not show up until edited. Would it make sense to sort pages of particular namespaces (such as User space or others you might see fit) to a different cat/subcategory? The category is starting to get unwieldy. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 17:05, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: Pages show up when they are edited or some time after a used template is edited, or when the link tables for the page are updated for some other reason. I have made many attempts [1] to sort by namespace but none of them worked. The magic words like {{NAMESPACE}} don't work normally in MediaWiki:Restricted-displaytitle, probably because it's a MediaWiki message evaluated in a special way. The current code says [[Category:Pages with disallowed DISPLAYTITLE modifications|{{NAMESPACE}} {{PAGENAME}}]] so userspace should sort under "U" but that doesn't happen. phab:T135949 and gerrit:290071 say the MediaWiki software itself will soon add pages to a tracking category. I don't know whether this category will allow namespace dependent sorting but the software should be installed here later today so we can soon test it. There are other options like fixing the userspace cases with semiautomated removal or commenting out of all DISPLAYTITLE but let's wait and see. PrimeHunter (talk) 18:30, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, I removed an automated message from Twinkle (from me) about the template temporarily used for testing. Well-meant, but wasn't appropriate for an editor your caliber. Good intentions :) — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 05:36, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: No problem. I have only heard that concern for user warnings and not notifications about deletion nominations. I have deleted it. The new category feature has been installed. I directed pages to the existing category by creating MediaWiki:Restricted-displaytitle-ignored. The feature does not make namespace dependent sorting and I can see no way to do it in the category but I have added a link to only display articles.[2] PrimeHunter (talk) 10:14, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
There must have been another update that makes the red error display in preview only. On the category page, I removed how to find the articles via links to "Wikipedia:Page name" because I don't think links happen in preview. — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 05:11, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
@Andy M. Wang: Yes, this was decided in phab:T135949 and implemented in gerrit:290073 which went live here yesterday. I have added a new search to the category page.[3] PrimeHunter (talk) 10:01, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Substitution[edit]

Hello PrimeHunter!

Data : just an example.

  • I have superseded the content of the page (1) in the page (2), using this element : {{...}} (and not this element : {{subst:...}}) .
  • The page (1) contains this category : [[category : Example]].

Question : What can I do for that category to seen it in the text editor of the page (2) (note:I can't rate it manually in the text editor of the page (2) when there is a lot of pages).

Same question with another way : what is the code that can modify the [[category : Example]] on the page (1) to rendre it seen in the text editor of the page (2).

Hei PrimeHunter! You removed my suggestions to Palindromes. The chapter None-English palindromes is very poor, I think. If You google "Risto Rekola" You will find many articles (in Finnish, of course). My book Ikävää, väki? is at the moment the most popular at eKirjasto (library) in linguistics and Naaraan in poetry in Finland. "Unnotable?". And when You say a Finnish palindrome it's a palindrome still, 'cause Finnish is phonematic language.84.248.53.209 (talk) 14:13, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Can't figure out how to add this?[edit]

Name
A white horse

Hi, at Template:Infobox equestrian event, I can't figure out how to add an alt description for the picture so that it's hidden except in the edit window. I added the parameter fine, but it won't hide like on other infoboxes. White Arabian Filly Neigh 22:27, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

@White Arabian Filly: alt text has a function in rendered pages so it must be part of |image=[[File:...|alt=...]] in calls of the template. Some infoboxes build the file syntax from multiple parameters but Template:Infobox equestrian event expects the image parameter to have fully formatted file syntax so the template should not have an alt parameter. Callers can make their own alt if they want. The infobox here has image = [[File:Pur sang arabe - Haras de Kabyuk (Bulgarie).jpg|200px|alt=A white horse]]. Your browser may display "A white horse" when you hover over the image. Screen readers for blind users may read it out. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:53, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Ah, I see now. Thanks! White Arabian Filly Neigh 20:18, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Inside Out's awards list[edit]

I added an old version of the awards list to List of Pixar awards and nominations (feature films) for the consistency of the tables in the list. And now that the awards list does not affect Pixar's list, I removed footnotes from Inside Out's awards list. Hope everything is sorted now. FrB.TG (talk) 13:44, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

@FrB.TG: You are badly breaking the history revisions for no reason. See for example [4]. I'm at 3 reverts so I'm not reverting you again but if you don't restore </onlyinclude> in [5] then I'm bringing in others. See also Wikipedia:BOLD, revert, discuss cycle. The code has no effect on the article itself so I don't understand your obsession with removing it. If you do remove onlyinclude tags then please remove both the starting and ending tag since it gets worse when you only remove the end. I also oppose the code duplication in [6] instead of using transclusion. There is no good reason to force editors to maintain almost the same content in two places. A minor table formatting difference is not a good reason to me. If problems are fixed or content improved in one of the places then the other will often be overlooked. Also note you have to give attribution per Wikipedia:Copying within Wikipedia when you copy content. PrimeHunter (talk) 14:17, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
Alright, how's it look now? FrB.TG (talk) 14:36, 7 July 2016 (UTC)
@FrB.TG: Thanks. It looks good now. PrimeHunter (talk) 14:57, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Golomb Sequence edit[edit]

Hi PrimeHunter:

This is Re: editing the Golomb sequence article and I attach your response below. If it isn't stated that it is the [b]smallest[/b] unique integer that satisfies this condition then this seems to be a possible sequence as well:

n = 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 a_n= 1 3 2 2 2 3 4

On the OEIS it says that 'it is understood that a_n is taken to be the smallest number > a_(n-1)' This is not obvious from the definition on the page currently and certainly caused me some problems which is why I was spurred to make the change.

Do you have access to a proof/argument that says that the problem statement as is implies that a_2 must be == 2 or am I missing something/misunderstanding something?


"(Undid revision 728582945 by Asyepifanov. It means that for a given n, there is only one possible value of a_n. It's not necessary to specify "smallest". OEIS:A001462 has a comment about it but it's not a required part of the definition" — Preceding unsigned comment added by Asyepifanov (talkcontribs) 10:23, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Asyepifanov (talk) 10:37, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

@Asyepifanov: The opening sentence in Golomb sequence says: "a non-decreasing integer sequence", so an ≥ an-1 by definition. an says how many n's the sequence must have and since the sequence is non-decreasing, they must be consecutive and come before larger numbers. After a1=1 is defined, that directly gives the whole sequence. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:45, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

@PrimeHunter How stupid of me. Thanks for the clarification, you are correct.

Palindrome[edit]

Hi! I mean that most English palindromes aren't palindromes acoustic. "Eye" should actually be written "ai". "Easy" is a palindrome acoustic ("iisii"), but You write the phonem /i/ with three different letters. Été is a French phonemic word like nearly all Finnish and Estonian palindromes. If You record English palindromes on tape and listen them backwards, You can't understand what they mean. --Risto hot sir (talk) 14:18, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

@Risto hot sir: The concept of acoustic palindromes is not well-known in English as far as I know. A later section might mention them but the article lead shouldn't give the impression that a written palindrome is a special kind of palindrome. It's the normal kind and the kind which is meant when you just say "palindrome". PrimeHunter (talk) 20:33, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

The roman languages, like Latin, Spanish and Italian are much more phonemic than English. The magic of Sator Arepo... is based on not only writing but pronouncing, too. English palindromes actually are formed of ancient writing mistakes under French influence. The Normans hardly spoke English. There's no logic writing "iivils liv" as "evils live"! You have just used to this as children. Risto hot sir (talk) 08:17, 25 July 2016 (UTC)
