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!

CSS styling in templates[edit]

Hello everyone, and sincere apologies if you're getting this message more than once. Just a heads-up that there is currently work on an extension in order to enable CSS styling in templates. Please check the document on to discuss best storage methods and what we need to avoid with implementation. Thanks, m:User:Melamrawy (WMF), 09:11, 6 February 2017 (UTC)


Hi SiBr4. Are you still maintaining Module:CountryData? I was preparing to use it in a new module, but noticed that it has a globally defined function, getcontents, that trips Module:No globals. Could you take a look at marking it as local? -- ferret (talk) 19:12, 14 March 2017 (UTC)

This should be all that is needed (it works when previewed on my test page). SiBr4 (talk) 20:11, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
Thanks much! :) -- ferret (talk) 01:05, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

As info, Module:CountryData is transcluded in 14,000+ articles now that Module:Video game reviews is using it. I am going to TE protect it. Shouldn't cause you any issues. -- ferret (talk) 16:41, 21 March 2017 (UTC)


Is Module:ISO 3166 finished? I've imported the data going in the other direction (text to code) for Module:Country extract, and it might be useful for finding errors and inconsistencies and various other things. Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

@Jc86035: It works, but I've yet to create the data subpages for many countries' subdivisions (the redlinks here). Go ahead to compare what's there, though. Note that Module:ISO 3166 can go both ways (code to name and name to code). SiBr4 (talk) 20:46, 8 June 2017 (UTC)
I didn't realize that, and spent ages collating about 10,000 aliases which aren't really sorted properly in Module:Country extract's subpages. Should all of the new data be stuck in the older module; and if so, how should that be done? Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

@Jc86035: I have the remaining data semi-ready to add (which I could use AWB for), so it won't be necessary to directly use your module's data to complete mine. I'll definitely compare the data in order to add missing/additional aliases, though. SiBr4 (talk) 10:31, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
Thanks for working on this. It would be nice if you could add a fallback mechanism (if there isn't one already) so that errors aren't generated in normal usage; I'd added one to Module:Country extract. Jc86035 (talk) Use {{re|Jc86035}}

There is an "error" parameter to return nothing or the unaltered input in case of a wrong input; the default can be easily changed (and/or a tracking category added) when/if the module is going out of beta. SiBr4 (talk) 11:46, 28 June 2017 (UTC)

On another note, is it necessary to replace {{ISO 3166 numeric}} using the module? It's only used on one page so it could be replaced and deleted instead. Jc86035 (talk) 11:55, 19 October 2017 (UTC)
