Rschen left usEdit

Now that Rschen has retired, who will update this page every week? --PCB 22:26, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

There's WP:USRD/A/Live for a "live" version of the WikiWork calculations, that Fredddie helped put together. I've also contacted the guy behind the WP1.0bot that updates the logs and tables, and he's adding this table to his bot for daily updates. No timeframe on when it will be done yet, but it's coming. Until the bot is doing daily updates, I'll take over the weekly updates for now. (I used to help do them manually from time to time in the days before rschen wrote his program to do it.

But then again, that bot, I've found, isn't so quick. I've found that there've been 7 Colorado C-Class articles for months or so, and the graph sometimes still says there're only 4. --PCB 22:55, 6 April 2010 (UTC)
Have you checked that the articles are showing up in the correct categories? Category:C-Class Colorado road transport articles should be the category they are in. Category:Colorado road transport articles by quality has a table at the top that shows the totals in the different class categories. The bot is really updating the tables off the categories, and Rschen's program was doing the same. I know he had to wait on Friday nights until the bot had a chance to update the last state before he could do the update. There were some glitches for a little while with the updates, but they've been mostly cleared up. The advantage will be that no one will have to do anything, the bot will do it, and actually do it daily. I think the wait is partially for him to set up his code to pull together 59 sets of data (50 states, 4 of the 5 territories, D.C., Interstates, US Highways, auto trails and the total project) as well as set up the math formulas for the two wikiwork calculations. Until then though, the table will still be done, just by hand. Imzadi 1979  23:15, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

ResourcesEdit

How often are the resources at the bottom updated? --PCB 16:26, 24 April 2010 (UTC)

Roughly monthly, but don't expect the map of GAs and above to be updated any time soon. —Fredddie 17:14, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
Also, when the bot does start updating this table, don't be surprised if it looks a bit different from how it is now, and the maps are moved elsewhere. Imzadi 1979  19:53, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
If it's like the quality by importance charts, it will possible to transclude it onto another page. —Fredddie 21:00, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
The new table is up. It's set to transclude from a subpage in the bot's "user space", and except for now displaying to four decimal places instead of three, looks essentially identical. So long as this works out properly, you could expect that someone will take the time saved in updating the table to update other things. As for the GA map, our project is now at 402 GAs and climbing. Some of those maps maybe be best retired or redone on a regional basis as the numbers continue to improve. Imzadi 1979  20:32, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I can change it back to three decimal places; I must have miscounted. — Carl (CBM · talk) 23:29, 25 April 2010 (UTC)
I kinda like the idea of regional featured content maps. But NY would need like three maps  Fredddie 02:27, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
