Malformed requested moveEdit

Your requested move at Talk:List of Big Brother housemates (British series 1) had to be modified, because some entries were listed as malformed requests (they were redirects). Paine Ellsworthed. put'r there  04:47, 9 June 2019 (UTC)


Check this out: there are two 2016 TV series with this title: Bordertown (Finnish TV series) and Bordertown (2016 animated TV series). The latter is currently poorly disambiguated IMO. Note that there is also a Canadian/French(/American?) series – Bordertown (1989 TV series) – and an Australian series – Bordertown (1995 TV series). The latter should either be moved to Bordertown (Australian TV series) or to Bordertown (miniseries). The second looks like is could simply be moved to Bordertown (American TV series) (as this label would not apply to the 1989 series...). Thoughts?... --IJBall (contribstalk) 13:54, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Bordertown (Finnish TV series); Bordertown (1989 TV series); Bordertown (2016 animated TV series) -> Bordertown (2016 American TV series) (if the 89 version is not American as it seems it isn't); Bordertown (1995 TV series) -> Bordertown (Australian TV series) (no idea if this is a miniseries or not, and as I'm not a fan of that term, I don't mind staying with the current title preference). --Gonnym (talk) 16:12, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Bordertown (2016 American TV series) is unnecessary disambig. if it is the only American TV series with that title (as it seems to be, as the 1989 series looks to be Canadian, or Canadian-French) – you would only need "double disambig." here if either the 1989 or the 1995 series was also American... In the case of the Aussie, series, I would agree that Bordertown (Australian TV series) is the safest choice... I'll probably move these when I get the chance... --IJBall (contribstalk) 17:16, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, edited my comment but the context was changed. If the American one isn't double then yeah, what you said. --Gonnym (talk) 17:48, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Merging of pagesEdit

Hi User:Gonnym, it's been a while, but I meant to ask you on what basis you merged the Episode lists for List of Where Is My Friend's Home episodes years 2015 and 2016, here: [1]? What Wikipedia rules did you base it on? I had separated the pages based on byte size (and anticipating another season for the show), and when you recombined them, it made for a very large page, some 214,000 bytes. I am looking to re-add the subtitles for different countries back, that were lost in the transitions, and wanted to find out from you first your reasoning.

You did not give a reason in the Edit Summary, other than to say you were merging them. And, although it was not necessary to consult me, as the editor that created the 2 pages, you might have opened the discussion on the Talk Pages. A new editor had picked up the summary writing, and those 2016 additions and futher back still need to be trimmed. Again, before I start any of it, I am considering making the 2 separate pages again, unless you can convince me otherwise. Thanks.--Bonnielou2013 (talk) 10:48, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Ok, on the 2015 page you redirected, I see your reason in the Edit Summary [2].....but tell me again why the years can't be separated, if the byte size is large? And no explanation for losing the Summary of episodes by country that was on both pages?--Bonnielou2013 (talk) 11:14, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Unless the page has reached the max limit, there is no reason to split a single season into two different articles. If the page does reach the max size for a single season, usually there is a much bigger issue which should be addressed. Looking at the amount of plot description, you should focus on trimming that per MOS:TVPLOT. --Gonnym (talk) 14:57, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

Template code questionEdit

Gonnym, as per the result of Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2019 July 9#Template:Nickelodeon original series and Nicktoons, we've been working on splitting the template into {{Nickelodeon original series}} and {{Former Nickelodeon original series}}.

However, in doing this, I was reminded that we have some hidden "code" at the top of both templates. What I'm wondering is – Is this code even necessary (and if not, can it just be deleted)? And what is the purpose of this code?... I will note that when this code is "unhidden", the template is no longer rendered properly, so unless it's actually necessary I'd rather just remove it. (And, if it is necessary, then I'm hoping it can be "fixed" so it doesn't lead to the "rendering problem"...) Thanks in advance. --IJBall (contribstalk) 19:49, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

Can you point me to what isn't working when its gone? I can't see an issue. --Gonnym (talk) 20:00, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
No the problem came when the code was "unhidden" – something like "yes}}" would appear above the template. So I think just removing it is the best answer. I'm not sure what its original purpose was, but I don't think it's needed with the split-out templates. FWIW, the code was still in the original, as of this edit – but I'm not sure what it was supposed to do... --IJBall (contribstalk) 20:06, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
Ohhh. If you look closely you'll see that you've just read the last part of a bigger code which was {{Template for discussion/dated|action=|page=Nickelodeon original series and Nicktoons|link=Wikipedia:Templates for discussion/Log/2019 July 9#Template:Nickelodeon original series and Nicktoons|help=off|bigbox={{#invoke:Noinclude|noinclude|text=yes}}}}. --Gonnym (talk) 20:09, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
