No map for Querétaro[edit]

Thanks for making Mexico location maps! I notice there's no map for Querétaro. Interested in making it?

Thanks WhisperToMe (talk) 21:11, 4 December 2017 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: In June 2013 when I created those templates, I recall we didn't have map images available for all of the states. That has since changed (see commons:Category:Location maps of states of Mexico), so I created modules for Querétaro and the seven other Mexican states which did not have one:
  1. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Baja California
  2. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Chiapas
  3. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Durango
  4. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Nuevo León
  5. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Querétaro
  6. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Sinaloa
  7. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Tamaulipas
  8. Module:Location map/data/Mexico Zacatecas
Also, I only created the map definitions and the template/module documentation. The actual maps were created by others, including Addicted04, Battroid, and MikSed. -- Zyxw (talk) 07:29, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free image File:Ravn Alaska logo.png[edit]

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Ravn Alaska logo.png. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

SFA player template[edit]

A heads up - the SFA have updated their website. The id numbers don't see to have changed, but the links have been shortened from old format to new format. Jmorrison230582 (talk) 13:54, 13 December 2017 (UTC)

Navigation popups[edit]

Hello!

I find your name in Wikipedia:Tools/Navigation popups#Contributors.

Actually I recategorizing a thousands of files in Commons (Commons:user:Jmarchn, in Medicine field, thus I am physician). A lot of images are overcategorized, then I delete this categories. Obviously, also I created a new categories and recategorize a lot of files.

Currently mouseover an image the popup shows the category number to which that image is linked, but does not show what categories are. If there is a popup that shows a category list to which an image (or file) is linked would be very useful to me (and, obviously, for other users). This would avoid me opening the page of each image and, more quickly, with Cat-a-lot could eliminate (or assign) a category to a set of files.

Could you (or another programmer that you know) create an option that would be activated via "window.popupShowCategoryList = true;" (with a default value of "false"), with this option?

Very, very thank-you. Jmarchn (talk) 17:14, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Upcoming changes to wikitext parsing[edit]

Hello,

There will be some changes to the way wikitext is parsed during the next few weeks. It will affect all namespaces. You can see a list of pages that may display incorrectly at Special:LintErrors. Since most of the easy problems have already been solved at the English Wikipedia, I am specifically contacting tech-savvy editors such as yourself with this one-time message, in the hope that you will be able to investigate the remaining high-priority pages during the next month.

There are approximately 10,000 articles (and many more non-article pages) with high-priority errors. The most important ones are the articles with misnested tags and table problems. Some of these involve templates, such as infoboxes, or the way the template is used in the article. In some cases, the "error" is a minor, unimportant difference in the visual appearance. In other cases, the results are undesirable. You can see a before-and-after comparison of any article by adding ?action=parsermigration-edit to the end of a link, like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Foss?action=parsermigration-edit (which shows a difference in how {{infobox ship}} is parsed).

If you are interested in helping with this project, please see Wikipedia:Linter. There are also some basic instructions (and links to even more information) at https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-ambassadors/2018-April/001836.html You can also leave a note at WT:Linter if you have questions.

Thank you for all the good things you do for the English Wikipedia. Whatamidoing (WMF) (talk) 21:18, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for May 20[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Ensenada Airport, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Ensenada (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are usually incorrect, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of unrelated topics with similar titles. (Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.)

It's OK to remove this message. Also, to stop receiving these messages, follow these opt-out instructions. Thanks, DPL bot (talk) 09:27, 20 May 2018 (UTC)

webarchive[edit]

That will work. The |date= argument is technically required and any missing will be added to Category:Webarchive template warnings though no red warning is displayed. I have a bot that can automatically fill in the |date= keying off articles in this cat, though it runs periodic when the cat gets big. The ability to extract the date from the URL is more of a convenience factor since there were initially so many (95% wayback) but most are now fixed and why I haven't done the same for the rest that use 14-digit timestamps, a couple dozen; the code would need to refactored to comfortably handle it. -- GreenC 13:10, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for June 25[edit]

An automated process has detected that when you recently edited Barbara Chiu, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Canton (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Template:Rotten Tomatoes[edit]

Hi... thanks for all your recent template tweaks. I was wondering: your edit here puts pages in the tracking category even if they have the appropriate wikidata property set... is that what you intended? I would have thought they should only be there if they had no parameter and no corresponding wikidata property. —Joeyconnick (talk) 05:57, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

@Joeyconnick: Hi. The {{Rotten Tomatoes}} template doesn't actually use or track Wikidata... yet. The template was/is using {{PAGENAMEE}} when the ID is not provided. That didn't always generate a working link, so I am cleaning up the instances of missing ID now (found some interesting ones where the Wikidata property generated a different link). I am almost done with that (as you noticed, I've been getting sidetracked updating many other film templates that weren't using the associated Wikidata property). After I've checked the remaining 18 articles in that category, I will update the Rotten Tomatoes template to use Wikidata... and then the category would only be added in the case you mentioned. -- Zyxw (talk) 06:16, 30 July 2018 (UTC)
Oh... weird! Sorry... I misinterpreted what was happening with Cloverfield. Thanks for the explanation! —Joeyconnick (talk) 06:20, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Replacing <tt> with <kbd>[edit]

Hi. I see you're replacing a lot of <tt> with <kbd> tags; have you considered that this is by-and-large semantically nonsensical? IMO where <tt> were being used purely to efficiently monospace the font, we'd better use a <span> with a dedicated class (.mw-code didn't look okay to me, but I have so many custom stylesheets applied, I have no clue without a lot of dicking about whether that's "normal") to do the job. The "default" monospaced (user-agent yadda yadda) tags in HTML5 have primarily semantic usefulness, and the font-family is more of a side effect than their purpose. Just saying :) Fred Gandt · talk · contribs 20:51, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

File:47th Artistic Gymnastics World Championships 2017.png[edit]

Hi, I'm RonBot, a script that checks new non-free file uploads. I have found that the subject image that you recently uploaded was more than 5% in excess of the Non-free content guideline size of 100,000 pixels. I have tagged the image for a standard reduction, which (for jpg/gif/png/svg files) normally happens within a day. Please check the reduced image, and make sure that the image is not excessively corrupted. Other files will be added to Category:Wikipedia non-free file size reduction requests for manual processing. There is a full seven-day period before the original oversized image will be hidden; during that time you might want to consider editing the original image yourself (perhaps an initial crop to allow a smaller reduction or none at all). A formula for calculation the desired size can be found at WP:Image resolution, along with instructions on how to tag the image in the rare cases that it requires an oversized image (typically about 0.2% of non-free uploads are tagged as necessarily oversized). Please contact the bot owner if you have any questions, or you can ask them at Wikipedia talk:Non-free content. RonBot (talk) 17:13, 6 September 2018 (UTC)
