CoordinatesEdit

Regarding this edit, yeah, I know, that's a problem. What I generally do is pull up the location on Google Maps and copy-paste the lat-long from the URL bar. I'd love to see some kind of software support which automates this repetitive and error-prone task. -- RoySmith (talk) 20:07, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

  • I use Wikimapia which allows toggling between Google, Bing and OSM. It has a reticle and constantly displays the coordinates which can be easily copied. Abductive (reasoning) 20:24, 9 September 2020 (UTC)

Little questionEdit

Hi Abductive, two questions really. I note you've sicced a bot on Protea foliosa in this diff. here. Thing is, I had another draft floating around. I can/have easily copy & paste your changes to the draft. First off this: |last1= vs. |last=, does that really matter? I don't see a difference in how it renders the page. Second this: Category:Taxonbars desynced from Wikidata, what does that mean? I don't see anything changed in the 'taxonbar'. Succinctly, if I c&p your changes to the old draft, will I screw something up? Cheers, Leo Breman (talk) 22:19, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

  • @Leo Breman: The bot makes changes based on whatever the guys who maintain it think are correct. I suspect that there may be an effort to systematize the collection of data from Wikipedia articles. The changes the bot makes are supposed to be for our convenience, so c&p if you like. People are activating Citation bot on 100s of articles at a time, so eventually the edits will be made. As for taxonbars desynced from Wikidata, if the article is not listed on Wikidata, towards the bottom, it is desynced. After I create an article, I click on the Wikidata link in the taxonbar, check I got the correct Q number, and add my article to the list of Wikipedias. Or you can just wait for the bot on Wikidata to do it. Abductive (reasoning) 03:36, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Right, I get what you're saying. Thanks for the explanation. I'll double-check that last part when I'm done. Leo Breman (talk) 10:44, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
