Template:Taxobox[change source]

I see that you recently changed this taxobox. Was it because of the syntax errors in articles such as Carnivoramorpha? I was trying to get that article out of and saw the syntax issues. Is this something you're looking into? Could the problem have something to do with the fact that we don't have Template:Sets taxobox colour? --Auntof6 (talk) 22:06, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

I updated it for something else. But that template was the fix to your problem. Thought I had grabbed all the templates we didn't already have. Thanks. -DJSasso (talk) 23:31, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

Regarding your bugfix on the Taxobox[change source]

Hi Djsasso. I wonder if you could help me for a moment please. I've just had to undo the change to the Taxobox template you made June 29th, because I noticed while editing another article, that the Taxobox template was entirely broken, and had code remnants showing through in the box itself. The undo that I performed, appears to have fixed the broken box, but since you were trying to fix a bug, I am aware that I may have caused further complications. Is there any way you could have another look at the template code please, and see if you can sort out what went wrong? Many thanks, DaneGeld (talk) 21:15, 31 August 2017 (UTC)

Could you let me know what page you saw the issues on? -DJSasso (talk) 10:32, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
Yes, with pleasure. The problem was visible on the page Organism, where I initially thought the editor may have done something wrong when using the template. The template usage appeared correct, so I checked the documentation on Template:Taxobox and saw that the box was also broken there; there is a blank demonstration of the Taxobox on the bottom of the template page, and the resulting box that the code produced was also broken. I would like to take a screenshot to show you, but the box is widely used (about 3800 articles) and I don't want to make unnecessary edits. If you would like me to do this though, please let me know. Thank you! DaneGeld (talk) 14:28, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

http vs. https[change source]

Hi, Djsasso. I'm curious about why you're undoing KolbertBot's changes where http was changed to https in external links. Are some of the https links not working? --Auntof6 (talk) 02:51, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

I didn't undo any of his changes. I was undoing changes by an IP that was vandalizing. -DJSasso (talk) 02:53, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
Its possible I caught one or two in a revert, but being a bot it will fix them again anyway, doesn't actually break anything. -DJSasso (talk) 02:56, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

CU[change source]

Hi Djsasso, Is there really any point in keeping the report ?, I'm assuming no one's replied because it's inactionable/declined and all IPs blocked so far make no mention of the fact they're a sock so atleast in my eyes my report is simply a waste of space essentially ?,
Obviously I'm not gonna war over it but I really don't see the point in keeping it? ..., Thanks, –Davey2010Talk 03:13, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

Reports are kept in case we need to go back and see history. Talk pages/reporting pages are essentially permanent. Not everything reported to CUs can be commented on. We can't actually link an IP to an account publicly so none of us could say whether or not those are socks of that user. -DJSasso (talk) 03:16, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
Ahhhh right, Yeah I forgot about the public IP identifying thing, Okie dokie well thanks for reverting anyway :), Happy editing :), –Davey2010Talk 18:02, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

edits to Template:Orphan[change source]

Your edits to Template:Orphan may cause the issue template to not show up on orphaned articles, or may cause the template to not show up correctly. Can you please do something about it? Angela Maureen (talk) 01:04, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

It is working, it makes the template hidden so it doesn't show. -DJSasso (talk) 01:16, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
I hadn't gotten to updating the documentation yet. It now explains how it works. It shows for couple of months and then it hides old ones but still categorizes them. If you want to always see them there is an explanation for what you can put in your css file to make them always show. Basically all I did was standardize the tag here with the tag on en.wiki as the orphan tag tends to get over used. -DJSasso (talk) 01:26, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
