What is "WP" in this context?[edit]

What is "WP" in the following (from the lead section)?

" improve WP's JavaScript coverage"

Wikipedia? WikiProject?

It could be clearer.

Help: I am unable to use scripts to create redirects[edit]

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but for some reason, when I try to use Capricorn to create redirects or AFCRHS to review WP:AFC/R requests, I encounter a "notoken" error which means that I have to create redirects manually instead. How should I fix this? feminist (talk) 02:05, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Feminist, try it again. Wug asked me to take a look last night, and I caught it while closing down the home. Should be fine? ~ Amory (utc) 10:23, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
Amorymeltzer, thanks, Capricorn has been fixed. User:EnterpriseyBot/AFCRHS.js still needs to be updated though. feminist (talk) 12:57, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Pinging Enterprisey. feminist (talk) 12:58, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

 Done, thanks for the heads-up. Enterprisey (talk!) 16:07, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

Collapsed install codes[edit]

In this edit, SD0001 added a collapsed container around the install code list at the bottom of the page. That seems to be a bit problematic, though, because at least in Google Chrome 80.0.3970.5 Linux on my system, clicking on the reference number next to one of the list entries no longer scrolls the page down to the corresponding entry in the install codes list unless it's already been uncollapsed manually by the user.

Is that a local problem specific to my system, or are others seeing the same thing? If it's not just me, then perhaps the collapsed list — while a nice idea for keeping the page tidy — is not be the best approach? -- FeRDNYC (talk) 06:40, 7 December 2019 (UTC)
