Your message makes no sense to me. I have explained how to accomplish what you want. Please do not start the same conversation in two different places. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:54, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

Bot request[edit]

Thanks for placing it; hopefully someone will be able to delete the newsletters, but if not it's not the end of the world. Long ago, I screwed up (copy-pasted without the closing tag; that doesn't count the times I forgot the four tildes Face-smile.svg); some kind soul fixed it, but I don't remember who (or how). All the best, Miniapolis 22:11, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

No worries. This is hardly even a problem, in the grand scheme of things. Just a little goof-up. As I said, I do feel partially responsible. I had the tab open for many days in my many-tabbed WP editing window, and I've been procrastinating. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:46, 17 September 2021 (UTC)

Question you may not have the answer to[edit]

Hello J. I'm coming to you because I see that you were the last person to edit the {{Infobox Pirate}}. I am clearing out fields in the infobox person that have been deprecated over the years like residence. Tonight when I went to edit articles using the infobox pirate and hit the show preview button to find out what field needs to be removed I get the red warning message that the field that needs to be removed is "denomination" but, try as I might, I can find no such field empty or populated. Calico Jack (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs) This is the first article that I found this problem at but it happens at other articles for pirates as well. I am wondering if you can find out what is going on. If not no worries I can always ask at the infobox person talk page but I thought I'd check with you first. Best regards. MarnetteD|Talk 04:00, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

Fixed. Happy to help. Any articles still in the category can be null-edited to remove the category. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:04, 21 September 2021 (UTC)
That was quick - and painless :-) Thanks for your time! MarnetteD|Talk 04:06, 21 September 2021 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of 2020–21 Russian Women's Volleyball Super League[edit]

A tag has been placed on 2020–21 Russian Women's Volleyball Super League requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section R2 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a redirect from the article namespace to a different namespace except the Category, Template, Wikipedia, Help, or Portal namespaces.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, 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 deleted 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.

September 2021 Guild of Copy Editors newsletter[edit]

Guild of Copy Editors September 2021 Newsletter
Writing Magnifying.PNG

Copyeditors progress.png

Hello and welcome to the September GOCE newsletter, a brief update of Guild activities since June 2021.

                 Current and upcoming events

September Drive: Our current backlog-elimination drive is open until 23:59 on 30 September (UTC) and is open to all copy editors. Sign up today!

Drive and Blitz reports

June Blitz: From 20 to 26 June, 6 participating editors claimed 16 copy edits, focusing on requests and articles tagged in March and April. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

July Drive: Almost 575,000 words of articles were copy edited for this event. Of the 24 people who signed up, 18 copyedited at least one article. Final results and awards are listed here.

August Blitz: From 15 to 21 August, we copy edited articles tagged in April and May 2021 and requests. 9 participating editors completed 17 copy edits on the blitz. Final results, including barnstars awarded, are available here.

Other news

June election: Jonesey95 was chosen to continue as lead coordinator, assisted by Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

New maintenance template added to our project scope: After a short discussion in June, we added {{cleanup tense}} to the list of maintenance templates that adds articles to the Guild's copy editing backlog categories. This change added 198 articles, spread over 97 months of backlog, to our queue. We processed all of those articles except for those from the three or four most recent months during the July backlog elimination drive (Here's a link to a "tense" discussion during the drive).

Progress report: As of 18:26, 24 September 2021 (UTC), GOCE copyeditors have processed 468 requests since 1 January and there were 60 requests awaiting completion on the Requests page. The backlog of articles tagged for copy-editing stood at 433 (see monthly progress graph above).

Thank you all again for your participation; we wouldn't be able to achieve what we have without you! Cheers from your GOCE coordinators Jonesey95, Dhtwiki, Tenryuu, and Miniapolis.

To discontinue receiving GOCE newsletters, please remove your name from our mailing list.

GOCE September drive barnstars[edit]

I see that you've begun the barnstar page for the September drive. You'll be able to calculate the awards faster, since you can run the script. Something I would take into account, if I were to do it by my laborious by-hand method, is that I finished my last article ~1.5 hours past the finish time and that my completing three oldest articles pushed two editors off the leaderboard, who each had completed two (they are preserved in a hidden comment). I would consider giving them 5th place leaderboard barnstars, since that strictly was their placement at the finish. What do you think? Dhtwiki (talk) 02:17, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

I can't run the script anymore. I do not have access to a Windows computer. As for the circumstance you describe, if I were applying that circumstance to myself, I would either forgo drive credit for that article, since the drive was over, or give myself partial credit for the work I did before the drive ended (and not put myself in the "oldest artices" count, since I wasn't done with the article). I had a month to edit three whole articles, after all. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:50, 2 October 2021 (UTC)
Dhtwiki, I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is that another editor edited four old articles, pushing you off the leaderboard. The good news is that your thorny moral and ethical quandary is moot, so you can finally sleep peacefully again. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:10, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Where does WP:UNDO prohibit modifying the revision that is being reverted to?[edit]

 You are invited to join the discussion at Wikipedia talk:Reverting § Using undo for an edit that isn't a revert. CapnZapp (talk) 17:46, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

Specific to this instance, sending a notification to a vandal is fine. Their edits should be "dinged". But when we aren't actually reverting someone, we should not use undo. Getting a "you have been reverted" message in these circumstances comes across as antagonistic. (Just clarifying that your reply over at Primefac wasn't precise - no vandal or actual revert was involved; let's discuss at the linked discussion.) CapnZapp (talk) 17:46, 2 October 2021 (UTC)

September drive bling[edit]

Replacement of Template:Main in category space[edit]

Hi, regarding your revert of my edit, I'll be adding title namespace-detection to {{cat main}} sometime after I finish the run of replacing uses of {{main}} with {{cat main}} in the category namespace. With that future change in mind, your revert is unnecessary. Nevertheless, I totally understand why you made it; I'll just get it again on my second pass (my first regex misses cases that are just {{main}}). {{Nihiltres |talk |edits}} 22:34, 4 October 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation. It would make more sense to me if you added the namespace detection first. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:36, 4 October 2021 (UTC)
Okay, implemented. {{Nihiltres |talk |edits}} 23:04, 4 October 2021 (UTC)

Colonial Bank of New Zealand[edit]

You have 'removed linter errors' but how do I get the pictures and text to display like they used to? Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 22:52, 4 October 2021 (UTC)

The previous image display was chaotic, so I assume you do not want that. I have added {{multiple image}}, which does a reasonable job. Feel free to adjust it. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:05, 4 October 2021 (UTC)
Beauty's in the eye of the beholder. Thanks, why do computerists make it so Complicated and I can't involve text as well. Hope you regard new arrangement with favour. Thanks, Eddaido (talk) 00:35, 5 October 2021 (UTC)
It looks lovely. Nice work. – Jonesey95 (talk) 01:02, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

Nomination for deletion of Template:Pittsburgh Pirates roster/sandbox[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svgTemplate:Pittsburgh Pirates roster/sandbox has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the entry on the Templates for discussion page. Spanneraol (talk) 16:04, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Spanneraol: sandboxes are useful and typically cause no harm. Please withdraw your nomination or provide a valid reason for deletion. – Jonesey95 (talk) 16:52, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
There is no reason for a sandbox for a roster...no other roster has one and there is no practical use for it. it is unused and useless. Spanneraol (talk) 17:02, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
Of course there is a practical use for it. If the roster template has a problem, and someone wants to troubleshoot the problem without breaking existing transclusions, they can modify the template sandbox, see the results in the testcases page, and preview the results in a page with a transclusion. That's literally why sandboxes exist. If the template is deleted, it will create a WP:REDNOT error at Template:Pittsburgh Pirates roster/testcases. See Wikipedia:Template sandbox and test cases for further details. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:21, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

Podkoren 3[edit]

You can see on official FIS Alpine Ski start lists / results from Kranjska Gora (past and present), that World Cup course is officially called Podkoren 3. See [1], [2] and [3]. Sportomanokin (talk) 07:19, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

I don't know what this is about. Are you contacting the right person? If this is about a specific article, please link to it and let me know why I should be interested in it. I edit dozens of articles every day, typically for small errors, without paying attention to what the article is about. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:58, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
You incorrectly deleted Podkoren 3 (World Cup ski slope) and changed it to Podkoren (false) on 2021–22 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup article. Sportomanokin (talk) 15:26, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
I see. Thanks for the link. It looks like I reverted your good edit, which was followed by a bunch of edits that broke syntax in various places, without seeing that your edit was valid. My apologies. Sorry you had to redo that link. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:51, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
No problem. Sportomanokin (talk) 10:30, 9 October 2021 (UTC)

Archiving[edit]

Hi Jonesey, I'm sorry for this and this; I'm not sure why but my OS seems to randomly paste stuff without my knowledge. Thanks for fixing it; please note it's not malicious and I don't have a virus. The archiving bot seems to be asleep; if it stays asleep a few days I'll raise in on REQ Talk. I just wanted to help clear the August section. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 03:53, 11 October 2021 (UTC)

I made at least four worse mistakes today. No worries at all. AGF and all that. We are here to take care of each other. Thanks for checking on the bot. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:51, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, the bot has woken up again. I do keep an occasional eye on REQ activity, though I'm not as active on WP as I used to be. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 07:43, 13 October 2021 (UTC)

Cite patent template[edit]

Thanks for adding the code to the Cite patent template to make the Category:Pages using cite patent with unknown parameters[4] page. It was most useful.

Skullcinema (talk) 09:13, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

You're welcome. I'm glad that you found it useful. I was surprised to find that it didn't already have that parameter check. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:53, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

Re: List of Graduates of the United States Military Academy Class of 1829[edit]

I am not using op.cit. without any further qualification; I am always writing it thus: Heitman 1903, op.cit., vol. 1, p. 625. There is no way it can be confused, even of citations are added in between. Please do not add tags routinely before actually reading the citations. I am actually using an abbreviated title. Creuzbourg (talk) 09:49, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

I tagged that article with op cit because, as you can see when you follow the links in the template to WP:OPCIT, the use of that arcane terminology is discouraged for multiple reasons. We have better, clearer ways of doing the same thing. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:53, 12 October 2021 (UTC)

Participation in a signpost interview[edit]

Hi Jonesey95, hope that you're well. I was wondering if you'd be able to participate in a Signpost interview in your capacity as a contributor to WikiProject Actors and Filmmakers? I am enthusiastic about these interviews because they help remind other Wikipedians about the passionate and diverse group of volunteers that edit Wikipedia, and into the many discussions and editors that inhabit our space, nooks and crannies. If you had time to even answer a few questions here (User:Tom (LT)/sandbox/WikiProject actors and filmmakers interview draft) I'd be very grateful :). Tom (LT) (talk) 22:42, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

I do not consider myself a contributor to that project. It looks like I commented on the project's talk page after I came across some problem edits while fixing an unrelated problem. That's about it. I'm just gnoming over here. Happy Friday! – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:56, 15 October 2021 (UTC)
No worries! You too, Tom (LT) (talk) 19:22, 20 October 2021 (UTC)

Unused templates with /rater-data.js[edit]

At User:Jonesey95/unused_templates there are 97 templates of type /rater-data.js. The edit summary at Template:WikiProject Africa/rater-data.js says it is for User:Kephir/gadgets/rater which User:Evad37/rater says was abandoned. Can't see in the doc of the rater if it uses that or not though. Gonnym (talk) 11:23, 17 October 2021 (UTC)

This discussion from 2019 says that they were still in use then. If in 2021 that is no longer the case, they might still be in use by Evad37's tool. You could ask at the tools' respective talk pages. If they are in use, I can remove them from my filtered table. – Jonesey95 (talk) 15:25, 17 October 2021 (UTC)

Linter error[edit]

I was reviewing the Jenna Hutchins article an article I created a couple of years ago, and saw that you'd made a number of edits. I didn't know what "Linter error" meant so had to look it up. I looked at your edit total summary and saw that you had just hit a total of 215,000 edits, a milestone of sorts, I expect. It's gone now, as you've hit 215,001. Thanks for your considerable efforts. Activist (talk) 17:03, 18 October 2021 (UTC)

You're welcome. Most of my edits have been considerably more minor than that edit; I typically go around to articles or templates and fix very minor problems, many of which do not even cause visible errors (yet) in the rendered article. I'm just a gnome with a very small broom and dustpan. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:58, 18 October 2021 (UTC)

Name[edit]

Your name actually reminds me of Jonesy from Fortnite. 114.202.207.70 (talk) 10:20, 20 October 2021 (UTC)

Unused Templates[edit]

Jonesey for your subpage you should remove the Adminstats, Afc, and WikiProject Templates that are named WikiProject per the fact their deletion will cause disruption and thus them being unused is not an overall problem. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 00:40, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

Please be more specific. The Adminstats templates are already not there. I have just filtered out templates starting with "AfC " (case-sensitive). What do you mean by "WikiProject Templates"? I think Template:WikiProject status/Draft, for example, should not be excluded from the report. Template:WikiProject Ariana Grande Invitation should be labeled with {{subst only}}, not excluded from the report. – Jonesey95 (talk) 00:54, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

I forgot to mention that templates numbered 248 and 249 should be removed from the list. Those templates are left unused and kept for historical record. --WikiCleanerMan (talk) 21:50, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

Adding Category:Wikipedia transclusionless templates to a page (in the noinclude section, if it has one) should automatically remove it from the next version of the bot-generated report, if I understand the report's configuration page correctly. I do not have the appetite to filter pages from my report one at a time when there is a way to do it in an automated manner. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:41, 21 October 2021 (UTC)

Fix Linter errors?[edit]

Hi Jonesey95. I've been fixing multiple pages like Special:Diff/1051155787 where you replaced a {{col end}} with a {{certification Table Bottom}}. The certification Table Bottom is not a table end template, it s a footnote template. The correct fix is to use {{table end}}. Happy editing. --Muhandes (talk) 07:36, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

Interesting. I was following logic — nearly all sets of top/bottom and start/end templates work the same way — and the clear documentation at {{Certification Table Top}}. You might want to address that issue at the templates' talk page. Using {{table end}} (or just {{end}}) makes sense as a straight replacement, however, so I'll do that at your request. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:20, 22 October 2021 (UTC)

October 2021 GOCE blitz award[edit]

Modest Barnstar.png The Modest Barnstar
This barnstar is awarded to Jonesey95 for copy edits totaling over 2,000 words (including rollover words) during the GOCE October 2021 Copy Editing Blitz. Congratulations, and thank you for your contributions! Dhtwiki (talk) 01:16, 27 October 2021 (UTC)

Military person infobox[edit]

Wasn't there a recent discussion about using this for people that had a rank but weren't actually military. I can't seem to find it or remember if there was any resolution. I just noticed Evan McMullin where CIA service (which is significant) got removed from the infobox there because the CIA isn't really mil. The mil parameters fit better in my opinion than officeholder (which I think is supposed to be for elected people (politicians) only. Another case where just changing the heading would be handy. MB 03:31, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

I updated the documentation at {{Infobox military person}} to explain better how to use it for other uniformed service. There was a discussion here. – Jonesey95 (talk) 04:13, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
I was unaware of |embed_title=. I put the child infobox back at Evan McMullin with a new header. Will see if it still gets reverted. MB 04:43, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Vitruvian Barnstar Hires.png The Technical Barnstar
For continuing to fix my dumb mistakes. Izno (talk) 05:26, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
I would have almost nothing to do around here without your help! No other editors make mistakes of any kind. /s – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:52, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
Don't worry, the majority of my mistakes are inspired by my mission, so if you should ever find yourself in the scenario again that you have nothing to do, there's some more work. Izno (talk) 17:08, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
TemplateStyles is complete Greek to me. I'm glad there is someone who understands it and is working on a way to make WP more elegant. – Jonesey95 (talk) 17:10, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
You actually don't need to know anything about TemplateStyles if you don't want to (though I am happy to learn you). For example, most of the remaining effort for cleaning up infoboxes is just working on the 4000 mainspace pages using a bare {| class="infobox" such that they use a proper template. This search is an example. Izno (talk) 12:43, 1 November 2021 (UTC)

Boo![edit]

liter error[edit]

At Bad Housewife, you fixed a "linter" error by adding |module= which isn't supported. I put the info into |native_name= instead of |caption= which probably causes the same linter error???? If so, we need a better solution here. MB 22:00, 30 October 2021 (UTC)

I just noticed you did add module and it was reverted... MB 22:27, 30 October 2021 (UTC)
It looks like putting it in |native_name= avoids the Linter error. That doesn't work in all infoboxen; it depends whether they are wrapped in span tags, which I hadn't checked for. Nice work. – Jonesey95 (talk) 01:47, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
You mean nice luck :) MB 02:54, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

List of programs broadcast by Discovery Kids (Latin American TV channel)[edit]

Other users added shows which had left the channel's schedule and added unscourced shows such as True and the Rainbow Kingdom, so can you add warning to other users please? 85.255.236.101 (talk) 18:38, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

The article is not protected. You can add any tags that you see as appropriate. I just fixed a couple of formatting errors. – Jonesey95 (talk) 23:59, 2 November 2021 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

...for your work copy editing. You might consider a further look at the Martyn Lloyd-Jones article, which uses single quote mark (') for inline quotes, when the usual is the double ("). A motivation to do so might be that any eventual case of a quote from ML-J where he quotes another would require single quotes nested inside double (which the status quo thwarts, for the confusion it would cause). Cheers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:246:C700:558:CDBA:A8C3:3D28:729F (talk) 00:14, 10 November 2021 (UTC)

Family tree of Russian monarchs[edit]

Your edit on Family tree of Russian monarchs [5] was extremely problematic due to the mass content removal, including the intro, as well as wiping out the entire Romanov line (!). I can appreciate the edit was likely automated and I'm sure accidental, but please take a look at the pages you edit after hitting save. The article was significantly damaged for days before I saw it. Ribbet32 (talk) 23:34, 11 November 2021 (UTC)

Oof! Sorry about that. That was a bad copy/paste error. I did preview, but I didn't notice that an entire section had gone missing. My apologies. – Jonesey95 (talk) 02:50, 12 November 2021 (UTC)

England football team[edit]

In the Honours section, within the 'Major' honours section, a 3rd place finish (semi finals) needs to be added for European Championship 1996. 2A00:23C4:D917:5901:90C5:4A9A:73EF:34E7 (talk) 00:00, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

I have no idea what you're talking about. If you can't edit an article directly, use the normal edit request form that appears when you attempt to do so. Provide a link to a reliable source to support the statement that you would like to see added to the article. – Jonesey95 (talk) 00:34, 17 November 2021 (UTC)

Template:Infobox animanga/Footer[edit]

Looks like Template:Infobox animanga/Footer is now causing a whole bunch of stripped tag link errors. —Anomalocaris (talk) 09:23, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

I tried to fix a Linter error, but it made things worse and quickly reverted, so there should no longer be any errors caused by my edits. Please link to a page where there is an error. – Jonesey95 (talk) 14:22, 22 November 2021 (UTC)

unhelpful interference[edit]

re [6]. If you want to be the Right Judge by deciding in a minor (actually closed) dispute, you better start researching the issue. Now, your 1st es "This seems to be what is wanted here. If you need help, ..." you show lack of interest. It is also quite, eh, risky to make such a claim for others. If you wanted to "solve" the issue (that was not an issue btw), you could and should have known what the intention was. For starters, instead of making claims for others, "this is what is wanted", you could have asked. Then again, you repeating "breaking" indicates that you have chosen a position beforehand -- which is unadvisable for a Right Judge, and complicates your reasonability. Anyway, this action is tacktless (as in: not sensitive wrt the environgment), and skewed in quality. Anyway, it is not what was wanted, and nothing was broken. -DePiep (talk) 21:12, 25 November 2021 (UTC)

You broke the template documentation multiple times. Intentionally making breaking changes to a live template is disruptive, especially after you have been asked not to do so. I fixed the template a couple of different ways. You broke it again. It looks like you have finally marked it with a speedy deletion G8 template, which seems like it would be a reasonable next step if {{P-phrases}} had already been deleted. I'll be happy to let an admin decide whether the speedy template is valid. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:34, 25 November 2021 (UTC)
No I did not break. A missing link is not a broken link. You postulating removing a link is "disruptive" is incorrect, and introducing a battle attitude. Anyway, you could have known what the background was, had you asked.
Just curious: how did you find this sleeping issue, and what triggered you to engage this way? -DePiep (talk) 22:13, 25 November 2021 (UTC)
I will let your edit history speak for itself. – Jonesey95 (talk) 22:47, 25 November 2021 (UTC)

Question from new user about your request edit.[edit]

Dear Sir,

I am a relatively new user so please forgive me if I have mis-posted or otherwise violated some policy I am not aware of. If you wish me to undo , please let me know.

I noticed the word "followed" in the Rittenhouse article, as you did, and it seemed out of place to me too. Sort of like saying a lion is "following" a gazelle.

I had found several sources that note that Mr. Rittenhouse was "chased" by Mr. Rosenbaum. After this I saw your request for a change, and added my sources to this request. I hope doing so was okay.

As part of this change I noticed the box that stated: This edit request has been answered. Set the |answered= or |ans= parameter to no to reactivate your request.

(1) I was wondering if you know how to do this? I was also wondering under what circumstances this should be done? For example, should only you, as the original requestor do this, or could I or someone else?

(2) The sources I found mentioning Mr. Rosenbaum chasing Mr. Rittenhouse were from a variety of sources running the political spectrum from left (NYT, CNN) to right (Fox, DailyCaller), as well as unknown (Richmond, Chicago local sources). I have since noticed that what seems to be all politically conservative sources seem to have been banned (or termed non-reliable). Would you know more about how this decision was made? Or when? It seems very difficult to have an encyclopedia when only one side is permitted?

(3) On a similar request for change on the Rittenhouse page regarding Mr. Rittenhouse being at the car dealership, the editor told to the requestor to "form a consensus". How does one "form a consensus"? I note that no one has objected to this change, at least so far.

Template:Rulers of the Ancient Near East[edit]

Hi Jonesey95. How can I make sure that content does not flow to right at Template:Rulers of the Ancient Near East? पाटलिपुत्र Pat (talk) 20:56, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

Also, isn't it possible to have a slightly smaller font size to better fit a table? Per MOS:FONTSIZE: "large tables may require a decreased font size in order to fit on screen", and "In no case should the resulting font size of any text drop below 85% of the page's default font size".... I'm only using 90%. पाटलिपुत्र Pat (talk) 21:06, 1 December 2021 (UTC)

It looks fine to me. If the table is wider than your screen, you can change your browser's zoom level, get a bigger monitor, or change your screen's resolution (if you have a fancy monitor). Making the letters smaller is contrary to MOS:SMALLFONT, for accessibility reasons, so you can't do that. The font size in navboxes is already 88%, so layering 90% on top of that makes the font render smaller than 85%. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:10, 1 December 2021 (UTC)
