A beer for you![edit]

Export hell seidel steiner.png Yo, thanks for the timely template magic. If you don't like beer, pretend it's some other thing you like. Anon423 (talk) 00:46, 31 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't. Thanks, though. SiBr4 (talk) 11:51, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your ISO/FIPS country code compare page, I've been ripping my hair out all day looking for country codes and here you give me two at once, with a list of differences. Thanks!

Thanks for the userscript -- it's been very helpful. One feature that would be nice to add is for the script to remove a trailing }} from the input as well. This would allow something like {{Example}} to be copied into the search box and automatically replaced with Template:Example. --Ahecht (TALK

Done. As a note, you can use your own set of regexes to apply to the search box by defining SearchRegexes as a table of find/replace values, like I have done myself. SiBr4 (talk) 17:23, 16 March 2016 (UTC)

State flags of Mexico[edit]

There was an edit conflict when we were both editing this article a few minutes ago, which caused me to make a minor change to your edit without having seen your edit summary. I removed the "at least" phrase from the beginning of the sentence, because it seemed to be an admission that we weren't really sure how many states have official flags. But the point raised in your edit summary is valid, as well. I'll defer to you as to whether the phrase should be restored. NewYorkActuary (talk) 16:16, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

If my understanding is correct, we aren't sure, as any of the remaining state flags could be official without us having found a source for its status yet. IMO, implicitly admitting uncertainty is better than giving a potentially incorrect number. SiBr4 (talk) 20:48, 1 May 2016 (UTC)

Message on Commons[edit]

Did you read my message on Commons? (talk) 11:29, 25 May 2016 (UTC)


I saw a broken template and absently minded fixed it without realizing it was vandalism. --occono (talk) 21:24, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

ISO 3166-2:HT[edit]

Last year we had a talk about rendering the content on ISO 3166-2 pages exactly in the same way as it appears in the ISO standard. Although certain descriptions are sometimes ambiguous or don't make sense (we were discussing the GB page) I could understand your point of view of sticking to that principle. Your latest edit on the HT page, however, makes me raise this issue again. The change of spelling in this case is not 100 % but 200 % incorrect. This is a French language name & a construction like this (Grande'Anse) is totally impossible in French. The apostrophe indicates omission of 1 or more characters; the space between the word involved & the next one is dropped. In this place name the apostrophe serves to replace the e in Grande. There is no way they can appear together: the right spelling is Grand'Anse. Do we really have to copy & list such ISO errors until someone points this out to ISO after which it will probably take many months before they send out an update? IMO, people who are looking up information should get to see valid data, not obviously wrong stuff like this just because it's in the standard.BeerBuildsBetterBodies (talk) 13:35, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

I'd say keep the wrong name in the list and add a footnote explaining that it is wrong. If we do it the other way around (changing the name in the actual list and adding a footnote with ISO's name), we should be consistent and change all ISO 3166 articles to the common names.
