St. Cruz (Goa Assembly constituency)[edit]

Your link redirects internally and has a "[table “” not found /]" message. Might be a temporary problem with the website.
Please avoid wp:BAREURLS (reasoning given on that page). It is best (in my opinion) to use the wp:template template:cite web. See help:referencing for beginners and wp:citing sources. Cheers Adakiko (talk) 08:21, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

So you know[edit]

The word you're looking for is Deprecated, not "Bogus", while fixing the LinT errors. It once was a thing, now it's not. Happy editing! GenQuest "scribble" 08:04, 3 December 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I was using bogus since that's what they are listed as, in the Lint errors page. Will use the word deprecated in edit summary from now on.--ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 08:35, 3 December 2020 (UTC)
No problem. I just haven't seen anyone use that word besides me in the last generation, so it caught my eye. I also wasn't even aware of that list existing. 😊 Thanks for your work here. GenQuest "scribble" 15:39, 6 December 2020 (UTC)

Loggetta del Sansovino[edit]

Hello and best wishes for 2021. You recently made an edit to the page Loggetta del Sansovino. As a result, the two galleries are no longer centred (nor are they flush left). Can you please take a look at the coding and make whatever adjustments are necessary so that the galleries are centred on the page? Thank you.Venicescapes (talk) 11:38, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks @Venicescapes: The galleries are displaying centered in android mobile for me. I had replaced the now obsolete center html tags with CSS, as explained here - Wikipedia:HTML_5#Parser_tags. Looks like the present solution is inconsistent across different devices. I will discuss this them. Meanwhile I have reversed my changes in Loggetta del Sansovino to the previous version. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 12:24, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you. Please let me know if you find a solution. Kind regards.Venicescapes (talk) 11:05, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

MasoudMalekzadeh[edit]

Hello. I created account now!. so please don't delete my account. I want to read about Wikipedia English. so please wait. and I'm active in a Persian Wikipedia. and please don't delete my account. thank you. If you can help me, please help me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MasoudMalekzadeh (talkcontribs) 16:49, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

@MasoudMalekzadeh: I am not trying to have your account deleted. You posted your entire Curriculum vitae in your sandbox, which is not how it is supposed to be used. So I nominated it for speedy deletion and it was carried out by an Administrator. Please read WP:RESUME and WP:UPNOT. Thanks. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (chat) 17:07, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
so now what i must do to register my account? can u take your delete account? — Preceding unsigned comment added by MasoudMalekzadeh (talkcontribs) 17:18, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
@MasoudMalekzadeh: your account is already registered. You are not in any trouble over the sandbox deletion, so don't worry :-) Just continue normal editing of articles like you would in Persian Wikipedia and you will be fine. If you need any help with English Wikipedia, please ask at Wikipedia:Teahouse. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 17:38, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello MR ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ. How are you? I join now to English Wikipedia. And I cant do my works good. I'm active in Persian Wikipedia. someone told you that delete my account. He/She said true. I know but I join now and I don't know anything. Please don't my account. I will try to know it. Please don't delete my account. If you can help me, please help me to growing in Wikipedia. Thank you very much. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MasoudMalekzadeh (talkcontribs) 19:07, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello and with regards. you told admin that he delete my sand box or my account? and when you said my account what I must do to come back my account? please help me. what I must do? I'm a new user. thank you very much. sincerely yours. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MasoudMalekzadeh (talkcontribs) 19:22, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

MasoudMalekzadeh I told Admin to delete your sandbox, not your account. You can recreate the sandbox anytime for test editing (read WP:UPGOOD). It is common for new users to make some mistakes since they are not familiar with all the rules. So you will be treated leniently since you are new. Your account is not in danger of deletion. You don't have to do anything to "come back" since you are not blocked. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 02:42, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

OK. Thank you very much for guidance me. — Preceding unsigned comment added by MasoudMalekzadeh (talkcontribs) 11:55, 15 March 2021 (UTC)

Script error in font tag fix?[edit]

This edit is from 13 April, so you may have fixed it by now, but you might need to check your script. It left a bunch of errors. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:16, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Thanks Jonesey95 for bringing this to my attention. Yes, it was an error in my script. I had forgotten to replace the closing font with span. I have fixed it now. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 16:00, 24 April 2021 (UTC)

Additional Linter fix for User:1111tomica signature[edit]

If you have a regex pattern for User:1111tomica's signature, please add this change. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:30, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

I had done this manually while using desktop mode in mobile phone. It is a bit hard to check for other errors in small screen. If I was using laptop I might have noticed misnesting and fixed it too. I type <font in the "search in page" option of Opera browser. It takes me to the relevant part. I run the script if I notice that it is one of signatures present in it, otherwise I do it manually. If I see a signature 5-6 times, I add it to my script.
For curiosity, do you always check for all type of Linter errors in a page? I just look for the ones that I see in a Lint error list. I fix others if they catch my eye, but do not actively look for them. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 16:24, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
After my initial edits, I use LintHint to check for all Linter errors on a page, and I usually fix as many as I can. I can't always fix them all, but if I'm fixing font tags and there is one unclosed <p> tag left, I'll fix it. Some of the font tags are too complex for my scripts, so I leave them for a second round (or for you!). – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:01, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
Here's another one in which your edit created a new error. I don't always fix all of the errors present, but I do try to use LintHint before saving to see if I have created new errors. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:41, 3 May 2021 (UTC)
I will start using LintHint too. I use preview when not sure but it is not always useful for catching these. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 16:56, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

Linter errors in userboxes, if you are interested[edit]

I fixed many hundreds of Linter errors in userboxes way back in mid-2018 by looking through lists of userboxes, but there are many that are not listed anywhere. I just stumbled across a page that had a hundred or so userboxes on it, and there were a few dozen Linter errors. By opening all of the transcluded userboxes, I was able to fix the Linter errors on that page and on any other page that trancludes those boxes. If you look at User:Nutcracker100, for example, you will see 27 errors from userboxes.

We know that Template space is clean now, so you only have to look at userboxes that live in User space. As a place to start, there are 8,700 userboxes listed on this page.

One tip: to center the text in |info= in a userbox, use |info-op=text-align: centerJonesey95 (talk) 16:17, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

Jonesey95, I found a better way to narrow down the search. This search shows that currently there are 193 pages in user namespace that has "/ubx" in the title and that use center tags. Similarly 299 pages with "/userbox" and 2,221 pages with "/userboxes" in the title. Some that show up in the /userbox and /userboxes search aren't actually userboxes, though they can help locate more. Other obsolete tags can also be searched this way. I have largely avoided Linting in userspace, though will help with this whenever I can since they are transcluded. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 04:47, 18 May 2021 (UTC)

Bulk signature changes[edit]

If you want to continue to make bulk changes to user signatures, you should probably use a bot account and request a bot flag at WP:BRFA. There are also already several bots that already do this, or are working on doing it that you may be able to just give the parameters too (for example see Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/DoggoBot in progress). — xaosflux Talk 11:07, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Xaosflux, I already have a bot account MalnadachBot to make bulk signature Lint fixes. It is currently authorised to fix 8 signatures in over 100k pages. About 20k is done and it will take me a month to finish the rest. I am using my main account for lesser used signatures that cannot individually be submitted for BRFA. Currently I am aiming to eliminate "Tidy font link bug" errors in File talk, Portal talk, Category talk and Mediawiki talk namespaces per Firefly Linter count. I figured it won't cause much disruption since they are less watched namespaces and I do about 100-150 edits per day. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 12:23, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Especially if limited in scope, you could ask for a more general BRFA (e.g. Fix Tidy font link bug in editor signatures on these 4 ns's) - if there is any significant volume left to do that is. — xaosflux Talk 13:30, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
Xaosflux, the 4 ns combined have 2,500 errors, which are spread across approximately 1,500 pages. I welcome your advice whether a bot task is necessary for this or I can continue with main account. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 14:06, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
It's borderline enough, so really depends on how quick you want to resolve it, and if you think it may be needed recurring in the future. — xaosflux Talk 14:12, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
New errors of this type is rare, so it won't recur in future. I think it is sufficient if I spread this over a month by doing 50 pages per day to prevent any watchlist problems. ಮಲ್ನಾಡಾಚ್ ಕೊಂಕ್ಣೊ (talk) 15:29, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
