Template talk:WikiProject BiographyEdit

Hi Redrose64, quick message. On Template talk:WikiProject Biography, I removed the category not because I had been lazy and just not fixed the issue, I just hadn't realised that it might have been there because someone had posted a link to it in the talk. I had assumed it was just a one-time problem with the actual template itself at the top of the talk page, and so I could fix that by removing the category. I used hot cat, so didn't actually see what I had deleted. I should have checked changes before pressing to save my edit. I apologise, I just wanted to clear any misunderstanding. Thanks, SamWilson989 (talk)

An' you never would be broke.

Draft:Emily Skinner (actress, born 1970)Edit

Hi Redrose, excuse me for interrupting, but I could see you were online. Could you do me a favor? I had requested Emily Skinner (actress, born 1970) be CSD'd because it was a cut and paste move from Emily Skinner, rather than actually moving the article. Another admin did the CSD, but before I could move the article, another editor recreated the redirect, again blocking the move. I moved the page into draft, thinking I could then move Emily Skinner, but it keeps telling me the article exists. Can you help me clean up my mess? Onel5969 TT me 16:09, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

Let's see. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:16, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Which one needs moving, to where? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:20, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Hi. Emily Skinner should be moved to Emily Skinner (actress, born 1970), then the redirect should be turned into a dab for Emily Skinner (actress, born 1970) and Emily Skinner (actress, born 2002). Then the draft should also be deleted. Thanks. Onel5969 TT me 16:25, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
Apart from deleting the page currently in draft space, I don't see what is preventing you from doing this move. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 17:16, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
I agree, but when I attempt to make the move, I am prevented from doing so by the same message you get when there is a legitimate page exists. Believe me I tried several times before bothering you. And I just tried again, in case some time needed to pass, and still no dice. I don't get it. Onel5969 TT me 17:21, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

@Snooganssnoogans: Not quite. For a long RfC like that, you need two signatures: one at the end of the opening statement (as you did) plus one at the very bottom in the normal manner, which I have added. The extra one (at the end of the opening statement) is used by Legobot for several purposes, such as how much should be copied to the RfC listing page, which in this case is Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Politics, government, and law. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 07:56, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello R. I am stumped by the articles that are currently in Category:Wikipedia pages with incorrect protection templates. The common denominator seems to be Chris Martin but I can't find the reason why. Your help will be appreciated. MarnetteD|Talk 16:39, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

It was this edit by Mad Hatter (talk · contribs), which I've reverted. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 17:02, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
Now that was an odd thing to redirect :-) Thanks for the fix! MarnetteD|Talk 17:08, 24 May 2019 (UTC)
I will purge this parody of Template article from the face of Wikipedia and nominate for deletion and get it broomly out of the floor, because it fails of being any useful in notification in Music articles, since all that it's related to Chris Martin is virtually all Coldplay and it has 0 articles to mention, Chris Martin has no solo work virtually out of Coldplay "area". I will nominate it for deletion this spun of template, that I don't know how you managed to conjure or create. Am I clear, Redrose64 (talk · contribs)?
Regards: The Mad Hatter (talk)
@Mad Hatter: No, you are not clear. Your English is of a strange dialect, unfamiliar to me. I don't know what you mean by "this parody of Template article" - templates are not articles. The page in question (Template:Chris Martin) is a specific type of template, known as a navbox; a means of navigating between articles, but not an article in itself. By making this edit, that meant that every page that had displayed the Chris Martin navbox at the bottom would instead transclude the whole of the Chris Martin article, something that is highly confusing and simply not something that we would normally do.
You say "I don't know how you managed to conjure or create" - I did neither, the navbox was created by Daani94 (talk · contribs) and developed by other people including Another Believer (talk · contribs), Eqwdasf (talk · contribs), Bonjovipearl (talk · contribs), Woodensuperman (talk · contribs) and Landingdude13 (talk · contribs). I'm just the guy who traced and fixed the error that was found by MarnetteD.
I gather that you do not like the navbox. If you wish to delete this, the options are either (i) the G or T criteria of WP:CSD; or (ii) WP:TFD. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 23:03, 24 May 2019 (UTC)

Another oneEdit

Hello again. There is a redirect page that showed up in the cat today. As it is fully protected I can't get at it so, when you have a moment, if you could perform the needed change that would be great. Cheers. MarnetteD|Talk 14:53, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Meridian Water railway stationEdit

Not knowing who best to contact, noting matters in the Wikipedia article on this new station, it looks somewhat confusing and I seek your thoughts on the matter. The station is said to open this week on 28th May 2019, the same day when Angel Road railway station is due to be closed, but in the article itself, under "Services", a date of 9th September 2019 is shown for services commencement.

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 23:17, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

Not a RS, but Liverpool Street is festooned with "Warning, Meridian Water opening delayed" signs. ‑ Iridescent 23:38, 26 May 2019 (UTC)

As you can see, those were the very words that were used to head this query. Do you mean something else?

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 10:47, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Chrono Order of XFDsEdit

Okay. Is that by order of the original date of the XFD, without regard to any relistings, and does that mean to put the oldest XFDs at the top, or at the bottom? Robert McClenon (talk) 18:40, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

It should be clear by examining the ones that are already there. But for XFDs it's by the original timestamp of the discussion concerned, and that is the timestamp that goes into the {{initiated}} template. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:48, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

RfC problem?Edit

Thanks for your effort with this edit. Do you know if it is working now? Is there a way for me to check? --David Tornheim (talk) 17:08, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

@David Tornheim: Yes; in the box at the top of the section there are two links: Politics, government, and law and Biographies. Follow either one, and find the heading for Talk:Fabiana Rosales; as things presently stand, it's followed by the RfC statement and a timestamp, which is normal for RfCs. Now go to this older version of the same RfC listing and search for Rosales - the heading is at the bottom, with no statement and no timestamp - this indicates an error. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:00, 30 May 2019 (UTC)

Edits on Ashford International railway stationEdit

Sorry if I have mucked up again on Ashford International railway station (and in putting this on your user page). When I saw it it showed up as disambiguation links to South Eastern Railway, which I dabbed to South Eastern Railway (UK) and Appledore railway station which I dabbed to Appledore railway station (Kent) - as previously discussed the dispenser tool which I use for thousdands of dabs doesn't seem to identify the template:rws so in the view provided doesn't show that this already exists. Checking in a sandbox {{rws|Appledore}} still shows as a link to Appledore railway station (Kent) and Appledore railway station (Devon).— Rod talk 20:02, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Ah, but I didn't do that. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:06, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
So I think you are saying I should have made it into {{rws|Appledore|Kent}}. I will try to remember this in future (or maybe I will just avoid dabs which are station links).— Rod talk 20:20, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
Yes, the {{rws}} template takes more than one parameter: {{rws|Appledore|Kent}}Appledore. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:24, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Template : Oxted LineEdit

I have just printed out a 2-page A4 size hard copy of this Wikipedia template to pass on to a very elderly friend who no longer has computer access, but the resultant print-out is absolutely full of blank white spaced sections between each line entry, which makes this print-out useless for an old person with fading eyesight to follow.

Have you any ideas as to why this problem has occurred? At the foot of the template, it states that "This page was last updated on 31 October 2018 at 10.43"

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 06:34, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

No link - no action. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 15:48, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

Once again,I thank you for your assistance in this matter and I will convey what you have said above, when I visit my very elderly friend with the aforemention 2-page A4 size hard copy print-out.

Xenophon Philosopher (talk) 23:01, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

I have since put the same query to Useddenim and he said it was because it was still on the old computer format and the said template has now been updated by the use of Routemap. I have again printed out the 2-page A4 printout, which is perfect in all respects. I have posted this printout to my very elderly friend.

Request for comment on whether "Enterprise client-server backup" should be split from "Backup" into a stand-alone article, and if so how to protect it from "simplifying" re-mergerEdit

Sorry if my deleting and re-adding the {{rfc}} template caused problems; I was trying to get Legobot to show a summary for my RfC on the appropriate listing page. I had been working on that section of the Talk page for 5 out of the preceding 7 hours, and I'd forgotten to start it with a brief comment followed by a signature—so I realized I'd exceeded the limit of what Legobot could list.

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions you could make on how to get the "other editor" Pi314m to not make a "simplifying" re-merger. The fourth and fifth paragraphs of that Talk page section explain the problem with his un-discussed "cut-and-paste mergers". IMHO every January Pi314m gets an urge to exhibit his intellectual prowess in the wider WP arena, so he "simplifies" a set of related articles by merging them into one article. Unlike in 2017 and 2018, in January 2019 he didn't get denounced for un-discussed article deletion by another editor, so he decided to do it again in late May 2019.

Pi314m's contributions list shows he doesn't have any knowledge of enterprise IT beyond the mid-1990s, and this time he got in over his head. I've tried educating him with extensive comments on his personal Talk page, but he hasn't responded there. I'd guess Pi314m suffers from a combination of feeling useless in retirement and of feeling that a "real man" doesn't respond to criticism. I've reluctantly concluded the only solution to this problem is to get him banned from editing Wikipedia, or at least banned from editing certain articles. I will now proceed along that path via the Administrative route. DovidBenAvraham (talk) 17:33, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

@DovidBenAvraham: Legobot runs once an hour, it looks at open RfCs and updates the listing pages where necessary - if you alter your RfC, don't be surprised if the listings aren't updated immmediately. Pi314m I care little about: I advised you that various avenues are available to you concerning user conduct, and none of them involve bringing your dispute here, so please don't. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 22:46, 16 June 2019 (UTC)

Challacombe scaleEdit

hi @Redrose64:...Is it possible to add colour to the table on this page...preferably going light to dark as severity gets worse. Happy for @Philafrenzy: to intervene. thank you Whispyhistory (talk) 17:50, 23 June 2019 (UTC)

Colour can be added, but we need to observe MOS:COLOUR carefully. You might be considering coloured backgrounds - I find this a detraction (see British Rail Class 58#Names and numbers for example). Instead, consider vertical bands of colour, which are not used as a background, like those at Clapham Junction railway station#Services. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 18:08, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure it is needed as the text explains very well, also light to dark with dark worst might be problematic. What would do the job best is a "0" described as normal. Does 0 appear in the scale? Philafrenzy (talk) 18:30, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
[1]..has three shades. Does that help? Whispyhistory (talk) 05:23, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
These colours are: 1-3      or #eae1f0; 4-6      or #d0bedd; 7-10      or #bc9dca. If used as the background for black text, all of these are WCAG 2 AAA Compliant and so would satisfy the contrast/readability portions of MOS:COLOUR. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 06:26, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Thank you very much as always ...I have been trying to practice but I don't understand where to put those codes. Do you know of an article where this is done? Thank you too "0" in might think a good hook here. Whispyhistory (talk) 14:30, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Shouldn't there be a 0 if 1 is expressed as a degree of abnormality? Perhaps there could be a line at the top with no number but just saying normal? Philafrenzy (talk) 17:42, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
For humour: DYK that the Challacombe scale measures CODS?
Or a serious one DYK that the Challacombe scale measures the dryness of the human mouth? With the picture. Philafrenzy (talk) 17:46, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
@Philafrenzy: There are ten binary (yes/no) tests; you score 1 for each "yes", and 0 for each "no". When you have answered all ten, add up your scores. If you answered "no" to all ten, then your total score will be zero, and presumably you don't have the condition. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:26, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
So is the presentation misleading? You could have for instance cervical caries on more than two teeth but not otherwise have a problem yet the table seems to suggest that is characteristic of severe dryness when each test in fact has an equal weight. Perhaps it should be split into a section for the things to be tested and below for the score. Philafrenzy (talk) 20:38, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
I think that the PDF supplied by Whispyhistory (talk · contribs) is misleading in that it segregates ten symptoms into three groups with the implication that if your patient has, say, no saliva pooling in floor of mouth, their score is going to be at least 4 - even if they exhibit none of the other symptoms. But the wording elsewhere uses the term "additive" four times, and there is also the significant sentence "Each feature scores 1 and symptoms will not necessarily progress in the order shown, but summated scores indicate likely patient needs." --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:54, 24 June 2019 (UTC)
Thanks both..I will reread tomorrow and maybe ask some experts before sending a reply. I rephrased the interpretations, which appear this space. I like the first hook...keep both. Whispyhistory (talk) 23:15, 24 June 2019 (UTC)

@Whispyhistory: Check it now. Philafrenzy (talk) 07:34, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

Looks good at quick glance...will check later in detail...tied up for now. Will get back tomorrow. Thanks @Philafrenzy:. Whispyhistory (talk) 10:03, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

IMHO a particular list should be formatted as columns. I don't understand how to do that.Edit

Hi. I'd like to make columns and don't understand the instructions for how to do so.

Golden_Age_of_Television_(2000s–present)#List_of_selected_important_and_notable_shows contains a long and unwieldy list of "important and notable" television shows.

London and South Western RailwayEdit

Hi. Don't know what happened there, that template came up as a dab yesterday, which is why I took that action. I just checked it again in Dabsolver, and it doesn't show an issue now. Very weird. I thought perhaps that the underlying template might have been changed, but that's not the case, your edit in February was the last time someone changed the template, well Template:Stnlnk, which is where this redirects to.Onel5969 TT me 11:12, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

The problem was that the second parameter, i.e. |London, had been omitted. All that you needed to do was add in that parameter, there was no need to covert it to a full link. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 11:23, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

Disputes for over a yearEdit

This is happening on multiple articles. For example, the disputes on another article are not resolved for over a year. See talk page. I tried fixing things before on this topic area and I was told to revert. The RfCs will help resolve the disputes. QuackGuru (talk) 19:30, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

@QuackGuru: Why do you need eight ongoing RfCs for one article? Have you been observing WP:RFCBEFORE? You are swamping the RfC system (see WP:RFC/ECON), and I expect that a lot of people are already thinking "oh no, not another RfC for electric smoking system - I shall ignore that, just like the rest". Have you considered holding off starting a fresh RfC until the outstanding ones are concluded? --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 19:48, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I am waiting for most of these to be completed to start one or two at the Nicotine marketing talk page. You can read the sources. There are obvious problems with this. I could fix it but I don't want to be told to revert. You have a better idea to remove problematic content? WP:DR is for regular content disputes. QuackGuru (talk) 19:53, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
If a page is prone to back-and-forth editing which doesn't quite make it to WP:EW, ask for protection. Then, don't jump straight for RfC - hold a calm discussion on its talk page. When you get it down to a small number of potential outcomes, then try for RfC. But holding lots of RfCs at the same time is simply going to make people turn off. As I mentioned before, there are eight ongoing - and in the last six months, there have been a further fourteen that were started (mostly by yourself) and are no longer running. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:24, 26 June 2019 (UTC)
I am not reverting anymore. That won't work. Wikipedia does not have a noticeboard for failed verification content for admins to enforce V policy. This is not minor inaccurate content. This is obvious failed verification content. If I start a RfC it would be replaced with better content. I have lots of diffs like this. If this went to one of the drama boards things would resolve much quicker and there may not be any need for anymore RfCs. That's because an admin may show them the door. These articles are under DS. Editors being on there best behavior is not an option. QuackGuru (talk) 23:00, 26 June 2019 (UTC)

I was too late to register my view which would have been strong oppose but I gotta admit the redirect would have been almost worth it (WP:HOW) :) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sphilbrick (talkcontribs) 19:22, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

Edit to Hinckley railway stationEdit

Hi, can you tell me why you've removed my edits to the Hinckley Railway Station page?

It is quite common for station pages to include information about adoption groups and the links I added are relevant to the station and the Friends of Hinckley Station group which has adopted it.

Hello, can you tell me what was wrong with my edit on this page please? You have removed it as link spam, but it is quite common for railway station pages to refer to adoption groups, and the two links I added are relevant to the station and the Friends of Hinckley Station group.

Sorry this is a duplicated topic, I didn't see the first one appear. OurMikeGeorge (talk) 10:02, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

See WP:ELNO, WP:NOTPROMOTION and WP:SPAM. Also WP:OTHERCONTENT. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 10:39, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your prompt response. I can see how the links I added can be regarded as spam, although that was not my intention, but the paragraph about the station adoption group is an objective statement of fact which adds relevant information to the entry. Could this be reinstated please? OurMikeGeorge (talk) 04:54, 14 July 2019 (UTC)
Please find some independent sources, per WP:IS and WP:NPOV. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 13:34, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Would these be suitable? OurMikeGeorge (talk) 06:37, 15 July 2019 (UTC)

These are better. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 16:23, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
