Disambiguation link notification for May 29[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Art Gallery of Algoma, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page William Morin (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:Bas-Richelieu--Nicolet--Bécancour.PNG or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata.

Election results — Calculating "Swing"[edit]

Hi Super
I noticed you added the figures for Swing to the 2011 election results in the Parry Sound—Muskoka (provincial electoral district) article.  I've seen swing figures in several of the election result tables and I've been wondering how it's calculated.  Would you please share the source or formula you're using to arrive at these figures so that I can consider adding them to other tables as I'm working with them.  Thanks  — Who R you? Talk 05:28, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
P.S. FYI, there are {{CANelec/hold}} and {{CANelec/gain}} (Canadian election result/hold & …/gain) if those would make life any easier for you.

Thanks, those templates will surely help! For Parry Sound, swing was (Δ1+Δ2)/2, rise of one party plus the fall of the other over 2. I'm not sure how to calculate swing when there's more than 2 parties in play (e.g. when the 3rd-place party wins an election), but I've been showing swing for the winning party over their greatest rival. FUNgus guy (talk) 17:15, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Should be (x+-y)/2 actually. -- Earl Andrew - talk 17:19, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Silly me, I forgot the negative. Thanks. (Δ1 + -Δ2) / 2 FUNgus guy (talk) 18:00, 3 June 2014 (UTC)
Thanks (to you both).  You might also care to comment on Calculation of Swing as well as Election results in politician articles.  Cheers  — Who R you? Talk 18:21, 3 June 2014 (UTC) (And you're most welcome for the mention of those templates)
There's also the {{CANelec/nothold}} for notional holds. (Never got around to doing one for gains). This would be used for swings calculated from redistributed results or when calculated from two different predecessor parties (eg Canadian Alliance + Progressive Conservative). -- Earl Andrew - talk 03:39, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

Election results templates — “Total rejected ballots” vs “Total rejected, unmarked and declined ballots”[edit]

Hi Super (Gus, fun guy! Face-smile.svg)
I'm not sure we should be changing the "Total rejected ballots" line in the election results tables to "Total rejected, unmarked and declined ballots".  It certainly is more accurate, summarizing the figures actually summed from the election official results; the problem is, at this point we're talking about updating perhaps thousands of templates, not to mention all the articles where election results aren't in templates but are hardcoded separately into each article.  I appreciate the desire for more accuracy and greater correctness, something vital when updating these tables that often have minor number transpositions, math errors, or earlier unofficial results; but maybe that one line is better left alone.  If the day ever comes to change it, it's probably a process best left to a bot that looks at ever call to {{CANelec/total}} or {{Canadian election result/total}}.  I also wouldn't worry too much about going through changing Canadian election result calls to CANelec calls; that's fine when we're creating new ones, but no reason to go back and edit them for it (it's actually one more step since the CANelec's are just redirects to the Canadian election result's, not that that matters either way).  As for adding Swing figures, my only concern would be if consensus on the talk page about it is to do something different than what you're doing now; just wouldn't want to create a duplication of efforts; although I suspect what you're adding for Swing will match what the consensus finally is.  The only reason I brought up getting consensus on the issue of Swing at all was so that I could add the formula to the …/hold & …/gain template documentations and do/verify the calculations when I'm updating other templates.  Cheers  — Who R you? Talk 00:57, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

New MPPs[edit]

Hello, I see you started updating the MPPs in many of the riding articles. However, I think we are supposed to wait until they are sworn in when the legislature starts to put them officially as MPPs. For the moment, it is still not official, not until Election Ontario releases the detailled results and that they get sworn in by the lieutenant governor. Votre pseudonyme ici (talk) 04:28, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

I feel that is covered by the {{current}} template, and the preliminary results bar on the 2014 results table. I did try, however, to add addenda to the MPPs in the infobox, but it didn't work out as planned. Maybe you are able to add a "preliminary results" tag, or something of the sort, to the infobox MPPs? FUNgus guy (talk) 04:37, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
How about we revert back in the infobox to what the MPP was before the election (just because it is still the official one, according to the law), but we fill in the results in the Election results section? Vous voyez ce que je veux dire? :) Votre pseudonyme ici (talk) 04:54, 13 June 2014 (UTC)
D'accord, je vous comprends. FUNgus guy (talk) 05:14, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Redirect blanking[edit]

Hello. I see that you've blanked the redirect Accipiter hiogaster with the edit summary indicating that the redirect was incorrect. Per WP:BLANK, I've restored the redirect for now. If you believe that the redirect should be deleted, please bring it to WP:RFD. Regards. KJ Discuss? 06:50, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

As there is no content for the species A. hiogaster, this is a good move. It was up until recently synonymous with its redirect, so this works until a new species page can be made. Thanks. FUNgus guy (talk) 06:52, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Same for St. Stephen-Milltown. Take it to WP:RFD if you want to delete it, instead of just blanking the page. KJ Discuss? 00:17, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

I have removed the tag. The portion of the page that CorenSearchBot has flagged as a direct copy was already on this page, and it appears that Cyclopaedia.de copied it from here. I simply added MLAs from Wiki pages and election results from Elections New Brunswick. FUNgus guy (talk) 02:32, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
Maybe it was because I redirected and copied Carleton (1824–1974 electoral district) to this page, as the riding was actually created in 1834? FUNgus guy (talk) 02:37, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Hello, and yes the bot caught an external mirror of the old page, so when you re-created it, it thought it was a violation. Happens all the time, so no worries there. Just one note though, rather than redirect and copy to re-title a page, it is better to just Move it from the "more" dropdown in the upper-right links bar. That way the history of the article isn't split between 2 places, which is important for the CC license we use. I've requested a history merge to fix that, so no worries there either. Thanks for your work, CrowCaw 00:28, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

PEI electorial districts[edit]

Howdy. Would you please stop restoring former MLAs to the infoboxes of those articles? The MOS on Canadian politics, calls for us to place the elected MLAs into the infoboxes. GoodDay (talk) 00:36, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

They are not MLAs, they are MLA-elects. Once they are sworn in then by all means, update them. FUNgus guy (talk) 00:42, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
That was my argument about a day ago, but I was told that Wikipedia:CANSTYLE#Terms in office says otherwise. You'd run into the same resistance by others, if you made similiar edits on the MLA articles themselves. GoodDay (talk) 00:49, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
Hmmm, I had the opposite argument regarding federal riding pages. Maybe they have updated the MOS since then. Ok then. FUNgus guy (talk) 00:53, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
I won't revert you anymore on those articles, as I happen to personally agree with you. IMHO, the new elected members, don't become MLAs until they're sworn in. GoodDay (talk) 00:59, 6 May 2015 (UTC)
