Template:Taxobox/showtaxon[edit]

Hi, I understand why back in 2012 you created {{Taxobox/showtaxon}}. However, it did create a continuing anomaly in the automated taxobox system. The cells shown in the right-hand side table in a taxonomy template (such as e.g. {{Taxonomy/Amaurobius}}) have the rank name displayed via {{Anglicise rank}}. The cells shown in an article using an automated taxobox (such as e.g. Amaurobius) have the rank name displayed via {{Taxobox/showtaxon}}. Unless these two templates are kept strictly in step, the display can be different, e.g. the rank name having parentheses round it in one, but not the other, or being italicized in one, but not the other. I've recently edited {{Taxobox/showtaxon}} to try to keep them in step (e.g. |rank=unranked_ordo previously resulted in different output in the two places), but the code duplication continues to bother me. However, if {{Taxobox/showtaxon}} were altered to use {{Anglicise rank}}, it might cause template expansion depth problems again.

Any thoughts? Peter coxhead (talk) 10:01, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

In a case like this, it might be enough to just cross-document the need to coordinate changes between the related templates. Otherwise, the wp:expansion depth limit is a very severe problem, even causing Template:Documentation to exceed depth when showing some /doc pages. -Wikid77 (talk) 15:59, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
I thought that might be the case; I put notes on the /doc pages of the two templates; maybe there should also be an HTML comment in case a template editor doesn't read the documentation. Peter coxhead (talk) 17:59, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

Expansion depth error in taxonomy template[edit]

Template nesting limit is effectively 20[edit]

I suspect you knew, but I didn't until today, that actually the effective nesting limit for templates is 20, since in a transcluded template, each contained template counts twice. I've amended Wikipedia:Avoiding MediaWiki expansion depth limit#Checking the current expansion limit to explain this – it would have saved me a lot of time if I'd known it before!

Automated taxoboxes and Lua[edit]

Hi, just thought I'd let you know that I'm working on what seems to be by far the best solution to expansion depth limit problems. This is to rewrite the parts of the code that traverse the taxonomic hierarchy in Lua. It avoids completely the need to have multiple templates with nesting (like the t^ family for example). You just write loops! The expansion depth drops dramatically, and hierarchies of 100+ levels should be no problem.

Lua is so much easier! Using the template language, it took me about 3 days solid work to reduce the expansion depth needed to find the taxobox colour. It took me about 20 minutes to re-do it in Lua, and I'd never used the language before.

So far I've created Lua versions of the traversals needed to find the taxobox colour and to generate the table shown on the "Taxonomy/TAXON" pages. The final step is the traversal needed for the taxoboxes themselves. It looks straightforward, although it's necessary to work slowly, in view of the number of pages that would be affected by any error.

When converting traversals to Lua is finished, we should be able to restore the original behaviour of |same_as= and some of the other bits of the system that were disabled as part of fixes to reduce expansion depth. We shouldn't need hardcoded or /skip templates purely to reduce the number of levels.

Ultimately I think that most of the automated taxonomy system can be moved to Lua, leaving only the raw data stored in the taxonomy templates, since this format is much easier for most editors to set up and modify.

If you're interested, Module:Autotaxobox/sandbox will have the latest version. Peter coxhead (talk) 10:33, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

@Peter: The Lua script is powerful, but unfortunately, not portable to other wikis which use only the core MediaWiki software (as those users have reminded us). Meanwhile, I thought the plan was to reduce the taxonomy depth by using major taxon levels, to skip minor clades, and not encourage excessive clades by making it easier to have taxon depths over 100. Switching to Lua is the wrong solution, while ignoring the solution to set major taxon levels, but such is common when people find new computer tools and forget prior design decisions. -Wikid77 (talk) 09:01, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
Firstly, as has been shown several times, the automated taxonomy system is difficult to port to other wikis: because of the number of templates involved, the frequency with which they change, the number of detailed decisions about what ranks and levels to display that are built in to the system that aren't accepted elsewhere, the different taxonomies preferred elsewhere. Another major issue, as I found when I tried to help on the Basque Wikipedia, is the frequency with which key parts of the system are changed as problems crop up, and the complexity of re-implementing these. These problems aren't going to go away.
Secondly, yes, we could have introduced "majorparent", and I thought it was the answer. I started planning how to implement it. However, I quickly realized that it introduces problems of its own, similar to the hardcoding you introduced and similar to /skip templates. Who picks the "majorparent" taxa? On what criteria? How can you understand and edit taxonomies when some parts of the system skip bits of them and others don't? Who decides how far up a hierarchy to follow "parent" and when to switch to "majorparent"? If we allow editors to decide article by article, as I think they will demand, in the same way that they can choose how many ancestors to display (i.e. we have a parameter that sets how many "parent" links are followed before "majorparents" are) then depth problems can't be prevented. If we don't allow this, then there will be conflicts over where to put "majorparent" links. (And, of course, selecting whether to follow "parent" or "majorparent" itself introduces extra expansion depth, making the allowable hierarchy even shallower.)
The truth is that the template language is totally unsuited to coding the traversal part of the automated taxobox system. I spent 3-4 days solidly working on the colour setting system, and managed to shave off 3-4 depth levels: just enough to make Pteranodon work properly. But even "reasonable" depth hierarchies, such as for most plant taxa, produced expansion depths in the high 30's. This means there would be little or no scope for any major additions/changes, since these invariably introduce more expansions. For example, the correct logic for selecting taxobox colour couldn't be implemented (at least I couldn't do it): if going up the hierarchy you find "incertae sedis" you should note this fact but carry on to see if there's a 'real' colour above, then only use the incertae sedis colour if no 'real' colour is found. Implementing this in the template language needs nested if statements, and instantly sharply increases the expansion depth.
I conclude that "majorparent" would be another temporary fix: it would solve the problem for a while but would not be a permanent long term solution. The only long term solution is to code the traversal in a different language. I'm sorry if this isn't a solution for other wikis, but it is for us. Peter coxhead (talk) 09:45, 11 December 2016 (UTC)
I'd also point out that more and more of key templates in the English Wikipedia either have been or are being converted to Lua: the citation templates are perhaps the most striking example, all of which are now implemented via Module:Citation/CS1, which is used on over 3,100,000 pages. {{Clade}} will soon be converted, and will then work much better, allowing larger cladograms. So very few pages in the English Wikipedia would now work in the same way if moved to a wiki without support for Lua. Peter coxhead (talk) 14:53, 11 December 2016 (UTC)

Template:Metadata population AT-4[edit]

Hi Wikid77, need some assistance with this template. I have updated the latest population, and the new population number appeared in all the infoboxes for all the towns/cities, except for the "time" and the reference. It looks like the template's time and reference are following its predecessor from DE template. Can you please take a look? I have changed and saved a few times but the date remains 1 January 2016 and the reference is as per DE template. Thanks --Jay (talk) 10:24, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Although timestamp should come from "Template:Metadata population AT-4", there was a design flaw where the timestamp comes from AT-1 (Template:Metadata population AT-1) and should be fixed to use "4" not "1" when population code has prefix "4". -Wikid77 (talk) 10:54, 13 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the timestamp, however, the reference is still wrong. If you noticed, I changed the reference to Statistik Austria - ...... Erstellt am 14.06.2016 (Last accessed 13.12.2016) but it still showing the old one. --Jay (talk) 17:02, 13 December 2016 (UTC)

Attention: WikiProject African diaspora participants[edit]

Hello fellow project participants. Not sure how many users are still active as normal Wikipedia editors but felt the need to attempt to get a gauge on who can be called on for help with articles falling under the umbrella of the African diaspora project. According to the project's article table there are over six thousand articles related to the African diaspora; there's not a hundred at FA/GA grade and there's over twelve hundred that are unassessed. With Wikipedia being one of the major information reference points in the world today we should consider this unacceptable. Much work needs to be done on the rating of the importance of articles as well. With more communication amongst participants and a dedication to addressing the articles on the to-do list I believe we can make this WikiProject one of the most well organized and thorough on the site. If you are interested in collaborative work with some of your fellow project members, have certain expertise on any particular subjects, ideals on/about the WikiProject, etc. simply drop your name under the "Project revision" section I've created on the project's talk page and state your intentions and main points of interest in our WikiProject and we can attempt to move forward from there. Hoping to hear from everyone soon! WikiGuy86 (talk) 03:32, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Soft hyphens[edit]

Hello, please do not use soft hypens again in Wikipedia. Many screen readers treat them as spaces, so "pronun­cia­tion" is pronounced like "pronun cia tion". I accidentally discovered this while viewing an article that used {{IPA-de}}, which you'd edited to add the soft hyphens. I've also used the edit summary search tool to find other instances where you added them, and I've removed them. Graham87 04:32, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

edits to Monty Hall problem[edit]

I've reverted your edits to the Monty Hall problem because they're unsourced (and also incorrect). If you'd like to talk about the math of this problem, please post at talk:Monty Hall problem/Arguments. In any event, please don't edit the article without the backing of reliable sources. -- Rick Block (talk) 22:55, 7 May 2017 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Starship Troopers, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Graft (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.

Dear Wikid77, thank you very much for your recent comment on Janevistan fake article at Jimbo talk page. I would appreciate if you give the comment on the Village Pump at Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia were currently their administrator and one of the editors explained that administrator deleted only the main page Janevistan because its different "thing" that the user page space [1] (see last at Village Pump). Any of your explanations about the real content of Janevistan at Village Pump at Serbo-Croatian Wikipedia could be helpful to eliminate Janevistan fake article forever.

Chrome on Android[edit]

Hi Wikid77,

I saw your note at VPT about the buttons clicking the wrong thing. Can you share a screenshot? (Dragging and dropping it into phab:T171495 is the fastest way to upload one; your SUL account works there, too.) Also, do you have Javascript disabled? (Please ping me, so I'll see your reply sooner.) Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 17:58, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

  • @Whatamidoing (WMF): The Android display (in Desktop mode) changes depending on which button has been clicked, where the size of the "Save changes" or "Show preview" will expand, to cause the phone screen to wrap at "Show changes" on next line. The problem does not happen on Swedish WP (svwiki), although the SAVE button still shows blue, as: " Publicera ändringar ". On German WP (dewiki), the problem is even worse because show-preview "Vorschau zeigen" triggers a page-SAVE " Seite speichern " of whichever experimental text I have entered. To avoid the problem on preview, I append "&useskin=monobook" because Monobook works ok with the new buttons and activates the proper button as clicked. -Wikid77 (talk) 15:06, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Publication list - en[edit]

Hi there. Appreciate your help but the publication list for CPPC is going to be reused on the various language Wikipedias, including Spanish and Portuguese -- so using the ISO two letter code -- including en for English -- makes them translate to the local language without manually updating. And we are trying to list en so as to let people know who are on the other language wikis what language the resource is in. This is part of a GLAM initiative so this is sort of our master list so am also trying to keep formatting very consistent and tight. So no extra spaces is ideal, since the refs are built from the RefToolbar 2.0 in WikiMarkup filling in the forms, often auto-populating from lookups. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Your contributed article, Reverse surge[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Reverse surge. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Voltage spike. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Voltage spike. If you have new information to add, you might want to discuss it at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, then please contact the deleting administrator, or if you have already done so, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 22:15, 13 September 2017 (UTC)
