You're welcome.[edit]

Trophy.png You're welcome.
Happy to support the valid points you made. By the way, I've proposed some additional language citing facts that are not supportive of the IPCC's projections on climate change. You may be interested, and I would encourage you to check them out in the talk page. Kolg8 (talk) 14:12, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, Kolg8. Have you had a chance to look into this list? Cheers.

Aggregate data lists[edit]

Hi Guarapiranga,

I noticed that you are a heavy contributor to all sorts of lists of data points on Wikipedia. I am interested in such lists as well, but many of them are very difficult to maintain and update. In theory, the ones that come from a single source should be easy to update, but someone needs to write a script to do this. Still, it is hard to believe that every update currently made (e.g. annual update) is made by hand. Are you aware of any existing tools for updating such lists, even if they only deal with a specific list?

Thanks, Ynhockey (Talk) 10:41, 12 November 2019 (UTC)

Hi Ynhockey, what I've been trying to do is link the lists via transclusion. Look for instance at the List of South American countries by population and how it's linked to the List of countries by population. Not only were the population figures there static (and therefore outdated), but all calculations were pasted as number. I have since then replaced them with formulas linked to the source column. This doesn't always work, as the wiki engine is not designed for spreadsheets, so it takes some playing around with the syntax for it to work.
Alternatively, there's a script that queries tables from Wikidata, but I find that's too automated, as much of the work in keeping the data up to date requires pulling it out from external sources not prepared for scraping (and many times in foreign languages). Again, a good example of that is the List of countries by population, which is maintained by vigilant wikipedians. But even there the percentage calculations were made by entering the population numbers twice, one for the pop column and one for the percent column, which is obviouly prone to error, instead of transcluding from one to the other, so I changed that.

De-grouchifying[edit]

I realized on a re-read that I'd been a bit testy in my wording toward you, on the content alignment threads. Sorry about that. I think it's a seasonal affect thing that's put me in a poor mood. Today is American Thanksgiving, and Christmas is around the corner. Both of them being very family-oriented holidays, they make me unhappy because few of my family members are still living and those that are live half a continent away. At least I'm catching myself at projecting my mood around. Need to compartmentalize better again!  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  19:34, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

No offence taken, SMcCandlish. If you realised you're in a bad mood, you're already halfway out of it. Happy holidays! Guarapiranga (talk) 20:39, 28 November 2019 (UTC)

Your draft article, Draft:List of countries by prevalence of circumcision and female genital mutilation[edit]

Hello, Guarapiranga. It has been over six months since you last edited the Articles for Creation submission or Draft page you started, "List of countries by prevalence of circumcision and female genital mutilation".

In accordance with our policy that Wikipedia is not for the indefinite hosting of material deemed unsuitable for the encyclopedia mainspace, the draft has been nominated for deletion. If you plan on working on it further, or editing it to address the issues raised if it was declined, simply edit the submission and remove the {{db-afc}}, {{db-draft}}, or {{db-g13}} code.

If your submission has already been deleted by the time you get there, and you wish to retrieve it, you can request its undeletion by following the instructions at this link. An administrator will, in most cases, restore the submission so you can continue to work on it.

Thank you for your submission to Wikipedia! CptViraj (talk) 04:10, 1 November 2020 (UTC)

AfC notification: Draft:List of countries by prevalence of circumcision and female genital mutilation has a new comment[edit]

I've left a comment on your Articles for Creation submission, which can be viewed at Draft:List of countries by prevalence of circumcision and female genital mutilation. Thanks! -- RoySmith (talk) 13:56, 1 November 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for intervening, RoySmith. This is the result of a clear effort from a mob of Wiki activists at the service of the US medical establishment to impose their own consensus over the whole English-speaking world, of which WP.en should be a reflection of. This is my latest draft before it was mangled and bulldozed by them. Guarapiranga (talk) 02:13, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Transclusion of deleted template[edit]

Hi, I saw that a page in your userspace was transcluding a nonexistent template, so I nowiki'd it. It looks like you were editing it recently, so if testing this page requires you to transclude a nonexistent template, go ahead and put it back in (I just do this to clear out the database report). jp×g 17:27, 17 May 2021 (UTC)

New templates now listed at Help:Sorting, etc[edit]

The new templates you created are now listed here:

Ping fix[edit]

Information icon Hello Guarapiranga. I noticed your attempt to fix a ping. Unfortunately, that method does not work. The notifications system only informs a user when you link their username in the same saved edit as you successfully sign your post. A ping cannot be fixed in a later edit by adding your signature or fixing a botched username. Instead, reference the user by adding [[User:Example]] to an edit summary, or use one of the other methods at Help:Fixing failed pings. ― Qwerfjkl | 𝕋𝔸𝕃𝕂  (please use {{reply to|Qwerfjkl}} on reply) 11:23, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

common.js[edit]

Regarding [1] note you've already redefined importScript once (in the caching code!), doing it again stops any caching; also there is an error in that function -- it'll only work for script pages that don't have spaces in their titles. – SD0001 (talk) 16:30, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

Right! Thanks. — 𝐆𝐮𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐢𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐚 (talk) 16:48, 31 May 2021 (UTC)

List of countries by hospital beds moved to draftspace[edit]

An article you recently created, List of countries by hospital beds/sandbox, is not suitable as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. ... discospinster talk 01:46, 8 June 2021 (UTC)
