regarding valuation (auditing)[edit]

Dear Slashme,

Thanks for your review in the page valuation (auditing), however, i would like to request for some clarification in this topic.

Valuation (finance): is the process of determining value of assets and liability by the management appearing the balance sheet of the company whereas valuation (auditing): is the review process of value determined by the management of the assets and liability appearing in the balance sheet.

They are distinct concept and related with independent field of study. Need your coordination and consideration

Thanks in advance Nirjal Shrestha

Parliament diagram tool : Category:Translation possible - SVG (switch)[edit]

Hello, Slashme,

The parliament diagrams generated by your tool are in the category 'translate' so that there is no text. The category is found drowned under the number of files that have nothing to do there.

May you change your tool and see if it is possible to do a batch process to remove all these files in the category ?

Hi Michka B, sorry about that mistake! I had intended to add tags to allow the number to be displayed in different numerals (e.g. Arabic vs western), but I haven't yet implemented that feature. I should be able to make that change to the tool today, and then I'll look at removing the files from the category. --Slashme (talk) 08:29, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Sorry, I had a harder weekend than I expected and I still haven't gotten around to fixing this. --Slashme (talk) 08:19, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

I've finally gotten around to removing that template. I'll now look at how to best clean up the category. Sorry for the delay. --Slashme (talk) 12:51, 7 August 2017 (UTC)

parliament diagram question[edit]

Hello Slashme ! i have one question about the parliament diagram. is it possible to add spacing options or smt else for the arch diagram to create a diagram simular to the polish sejm or finnish riksdag diagrams on wikipedia. And thank you for creating this amazing tool to feed my addition to elections and parliamentory diagrams Best wishes

Hi Flyingcow 1234, can you link examples of those diagrams so that I can be sure that I'm aiming at the right target? --Slashme (talk) 08:21, 24 July 2017 (UTC)
Hello again Slashme here are the examples
POL Sejm RP seats 2015.svg

Is the suggestion to add gaps in the arches of dots, or to try to match the seating plan of certain specific parliament houses?

If the idea is to add gaps to space out the dots into wedges, I don't really see the advantage, but if a consensus emerges that it's better, I could certainly write code for that layout.

If the idea is to make them fit specific seating layouts, that's not in the scope of the tool: the idea is to make it easy for the user to understand the relative size the parties and to understand how many representatives they have. It would make the tool too complicated if I tried to match the layouts of various parliaments, and it would remove the benefit of offering a standard diagram type across the project.

This is a common request, and it would not be that difficult to code a tool that allows templates of parliaments to be made and filled in:

  • The user gives a name (e.g. "Tinytown Parliament"), a list of coordinates of spots in the order that they should be filled, for example [(75.0,1.1),(1.1,1.1),(75.0,98.9),(148.9,1.1)] and a spot size (e.g. "1.0"). This would need to be designed by the user, because the script couldn't reasonably predict any possible layout. This might be saved on Wikipedia somewhere or on a user page, or might be uploaded by the user as JSON.
  • The user also gives a list of parties and their support, e.g. [("Speaker","DarkGray",1),("Party party","Red",1),("No-party party","#EED211",2)] - in this case, the "speaker" spot would be in the middle on the bottom, the "Party party" would be at the left on the bottom, and the other two spots would be the "No-party party"
  • The script then reads the layout file, checking that it's valid (e.g. no spots outside the diagram border, and no more than some reasonable number of spots).
  • The script then reads the list of parties, and checks that it's valid (i.e. no more members than the diagram has room for) and then fills in the spots in the order given, and writes an SVG.

I'm not sure that this is a worthwhile goal, but if you feel strongly about it, add your voice to this feature request on GitHub: feel free to connect to others who also want this. If there's enough support for the request, I could certainly code it. --Slashme (talk) 13:23, 24 July 2017 (UTC)

Yeah i was thinking of smt like that allows the user to fill in varibles and the tool to generate a diagram based on those varibles
anyway thank you and i hope this idea becomes reality someday

OK! Please remember to support the request on GitHub. --Slashme (talk) 07:24, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #273[edit]


Hi Slashme,

Nice to see you on! I have been trying to update some of the chemistry pages there lately. A page like organic chem got a fair bit of hits (up to 15 or so, I think a lot of them schoolkids) every day, but it was nothing but a bunch of loose red links. The page af:Biochemie is about as dismal. I am an inorganic solid state chemist and really do not feel up to cleaning that one up. Care to give us a hand with that? Jcwf (talk) 19:18, 15 August 2017 (UTC)

Hi Jcwf, good to meet you! Yes, that article really is terrible! I've committed to the 100 wikidays challenge, which is all about new article creation, so that will be my first priority for a while, but in between I'll definitely start hacking away at it. Thanks! --Slashme (talk) 10:57, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks. Maybe turn some of its red links blue? It's where I started with the organic page. Then it grew. Funny how that happens :-) Jcwf (talk) 12:50, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
Not a bad idea :-D --Slashme (talk) 15:54, 16 August 2017 (UTC)
