A goodieEdit

This one was really odd ... dropped the date and dropped the nom page ... https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Berlin_to_Kitchener_name_change&diff=1020785014&oldid=1020780143 Best regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 00:41, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

The DYK entry was in error. According to Template:DYK talk, the date is the second parameter and the third is for an image. The article used an old form, with the third parameter containing part of the date. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 05:45, 1 May 2021 (UTC)

Updates to peer reviewEdit

Hi Hawkeye7, just to let you know I have updated some parameters that are used for old peer reviews (in particular, an automatically included ID of the page revision, and also either a full link to the peer review page or the name of the article when it was reviewed - in case of a move). You can see the new parameters that I've included at Template:Old peer review/doc.

I mention this because I am contemplating asking you to run the bot on the 13,500 or so articles at Category:Old requests for peer review with a view to reducing template clutter so that old peer reviews can be integrated into the article history template where possible. Tom (LT) (talk) 02:14, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Actually, there are a lot less than that, because Module:Article history/config attaches that category to pages where the Article History template includes a Peer Review. I will start by updating the Bot to recognise the new parameters. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 04:07, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

FAR archivingEdit

Bit of weirdness: Nikkimaria closed 5 FARs yesterday[1] and 1 has been processed by the bot but the other 4 haven't been. DrKay (talk) 06:58, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

  Resolved – Caused by Degrassi: The Next Generation. Reverted and the Bot was able to process. Will add some more error recovery. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 08:00, 16 May 2021 (UTC)


This one missed: [2] Best regards, SandyGeorgia (Talk) 18:57, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

FA icon template placementEdit

According to MOS:ORDER, {{Featured article}} should be at the top of the article, after Short description and Hatnote templates. The relevant RfC was closed in May. However, FACBot places these templates at the end of the article. Can this be fixed? I would also love to see the template name capitalized, but that is only a personal preference. Regards, IceWelder [] 12:15, 18 July 2021 (UTC)

It was placing the template down the bottom where the MOS specified it should be located; the MOS was changed to move it up higher. It's a bit more work for the Bot, but it can be done. I'll report back here when it is implemented. Hawkeye7 (discuss) 19:27, 18 July 2021 (UTC)
This has now been implemented. The code is as below. Note that this only affects featured articles and lists; good articles are not handled by the FACBot. (Also: the "F" has now been capitalised.)
sub addStar ($@) {
    my ($self, @elements) = @ARG;
    my @hatnotes = $self->find ($hatnotes);
    my $hatnote = pop @hatnotes;
    my $position = $hatnote ? $self->_pos ($hatnote) + 2 : 0;
    splice @{ $self->{'elements'} }, $position, 0, @elements;
  Resolved – Changed to match the MOS Hawkeye7 (discuss) 01:08, 19 July 2021 (UTC)
Looks fantastic, thanks! IceWelder [] 14:59, 21 July 2021 (UTC)
