On the removal of a reference from the "explainable AI" article[edit]

I believe that the addition of the reference was an attempt at self promotion of one of the authors of the article.By looking at the history of that article you can see that the reference was unnecessary. This is not the first time that Andreas(http://andreasplagiarism.wordpress.com/2020/12/02/andreas-theodorou-committed-plagiarism-in-his-phd-thesis/) has attempted to unnecessarily insert his name on AI articles. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mindpit (talkcontribs) 20:15, 25 April 2021 (UTC)

I see, Mindpit; thanks for letting me know and sorry for the late response. It was difficult to tell that it was your intention because you didn't include an edit summary with your removal. If you feel an editor has a conflict of interest, you can report it (with evidence) to the conflict of interest noticeboard. Sdrqaz (talk) 17:56, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

Congrats on being in the top 5 most active pending changes reviewers this month. Great job. –Novem Linguae (talk) 14:42, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
Novem Linguae, gratias tibi for the barnstar (and sorry for the late reply)! I didn't realise that there was something tracking it; just tried to chip away at that eternal backlog every once in a while. Face-smile.svg Sdrqaz (talk) 18:03, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Scott Mann[edit]

I'm not sure how to insert Scott Mann into British Government frontbench, can you help?

Sorry for the late reply, BlueD954; you caught me just as I had gone on a Wikibreak. I see that the information has now been added and I'm sorry to hear of your block. Sdrqaz (talk) 18:52, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Joe Manchin[edit]

I just wanted to appologize for making my prank edit on Joe Manchins page and wasting your time having to review it and revert it back. I am sure that is as annoying to you as it was unneccesary for me to do. Enjoy your day. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1000:B143:D99C:201F:102B:8CDF:E8D (talk) 21:37, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Thank you for the apology. It wasn't that annoying, just a minor inconvenience. I hope you enjoy your day too. Face-smile.svg Sdrqaz (talk) 21:57, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Source for British Government Frontbench[edit]

I think this is the best source for the article British government frontbench. Do update if you like cause it is outdated.2401:7400:4009:6801:5CDD:2E5:A65D:6271 (talk) 04:32, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know. I'll update it when I get the opportunity. Sdrqaz (talk) 21:47, 13 May 2021 (UTC)

Good to know. In the future, kindly do not engage in sockpuppetry to publicise such valuable information. Sdrqaz (talk) 01:06, 8 June 2021 (UTC)

Searching rendered text[edit]

Hi, I saw your post on the AWB talk page. Do you have an example of what you are looking for? What you might want to search for? I have some methods of getting around some AWB limitations. If anything comes of this discussion we can post on the AWB page. Regards, Neils51 (talk) 21:37, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

Hi Neils, thanks for the message. Necessary disclaimer: I'm pretty weak on the technical side of the encyclopaedia, so there's probably a blindingly obvious solution. A little bit of context as well: my last run of AutoWikiBrowser was to make MOS:QWQ changes, like this edit at Chief Wiggum, which involves searching for things like "The Curse of the Flying Hellfish"]]" and changing it to 'The Curse of the Flying Hellfish']]{{-"}}.
My two issues are this:
  1. I cannot make AWB differentiate between apostrophes and italic/bold markup. As many QWQ changes involve changing two inverted commas into one single inverted comma and one double inverted comma ('' into '"), searching for QWQ violations would throw up a lot of perfectly-valid uses of bold and italic. Searching the rendered text wouldn't have the same problem, as Ctrl-F doesn't look for things like italics. As I said at WT:AWB, I'm using a pretty conservative program so fewer false positives are thrown up, but that also means "true" positives are falling through the cracks.
  2. As AWB searches "in-source", it ignores what Lua modules render. This edit at The Simpsons (season 14) successfully changed "[['Scuse to {{"-}}[['Scuse, but ignored [['Scuse in § Episodes despite that creating the same rendered text. That's due to {{#invoke:Episode list|sublist}} (I think, or at least one of the modules) wrapping every episode title with inverted commas.
I hope that's clear, and would be happy to clarify further (though my grasp of the jargon may not be great). Sdrqaz (talk) 22:41, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
