Language tabs[change source]

I found your language tab while reading over a page on meta. I've added it to both my interface here and on enWP. This is a VERY fine piece of work! I immediately fell in love with it. Intentionally or not, you may have found a way to make both projects very accessible. Even as an interface update on both projects. I'd love to see you offer it up as a gadget, either way... Operator873talkconnect 22:28, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

@Operator873: Yeah I have been using this for a very long time. I think I even had something similar to this for a few years before this version. The one thing to be aware of is that it works on article title so sometimes it will show you the wrong article if they are named differently on but that isn't the case too often and if it is, I just hit back and click on the interwiki. -DJSasso (talk) 12:32, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
Hey there! I tinkered with the script until I was perplexed and befuddled. As a last ditch effort, I asked for help on IRC. Krenair answered my call for help and, in short order, got the script working. I only changed the positioning of the tab (to the left side vs right side) and renamed it to "EnWiki" or "Simple English," with respect to the project. I wanted to let you know so that you could find both files in my userspace here and on enwiki and copy them back to your userspace. Operator873talkconnect 22:19, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
@Operator873: Haha figured you might be the reason I was getting pinged about my tabs suddenly on Or else its one crazy coincidence you all both found it at the same time. -DJSasso (talk) 17:14, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

{{Dts}}[change source]

Can you take a look? It's seemingly the cause of a LOT of stripped SPAN's suggesting it's generating one more span than it should be somewhere? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:27, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

I will look, I already switched it over to using a module, so unless you are using a realtime list it may already be fixed. -DJSasso (talk) 14:53, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

how was your Thanksgiving 2018[change source]

Hey Djsasso: Did you have a happy Thanksgiving? What did you do for Thanksgiving? Angela Maureen (talk) 23:58, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

Repairs...[change source]

Generally I try to change as little as possible, when making a repair, if you are able to build on that , good. BTW you might want to to look over some of my recent efforts.. There are some problem templates I can't find stable fixes for.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 21:10, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Yup that is understandable. Don't mind me if I come behind you. Its just usually me making sure all the templates that touch a template are updated. I have been on a year or so long project to try and get our templates fixed up. People used to just bring over the main one and not any of the ones that were called by it so things didn't always work right. So sometimes when I see someone edit a template I might end up importing anything that it touches. Some of our templates are a decade out of date. -DJSasso (talk) 17:09, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Second opinon sought..[change source] — Preceding unsigned comment added by ShakespeareFan00 (talkcontribs)

I will take a look. -DJSasso (talk) 17:11, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Replacing center on tables..[change source]

How do I make a request for a CSS class to be added to Simple English wikipedi so I can just do class="center-float" to replace the center tag?

I'd also like to request that the styles I used in

  • {{Del_block}} to replace STRIKE and S which only work on SPAN based elements.
  • {{Monospaced block}} to replace TT, and related in certain instances...

be considered for generalisation into classes that could be used across the wiki. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:22, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Because we have so few people who like to play with code on this wiki we just refresh our CSS to match whatever has most of the time. Sometimes we get a bit behind but in general we have whatever has and then only things that are super specific to our wiki. I can try to see how we can do it. I will have to get back to you. -DJSasso (talk) 11:42, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
To be fair the code on those , should also be subject to an RFC back at English Wikipedia..ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 12:02, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

CSS note...[change source]

You can replace bgcolor=#xxxxxx with a "background: #xxxxxx" style BTW. which was what I've done sometimes when repairing other concerns. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:42, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Documentation is "junk" for {{Infobox generic}}[change source]

As per heading ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:19, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Looks like that was a long extinct template, have replaced the only two uses and removed. -DJSasso (talk) 13:43, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

FYI[change source]

Please be careful when importing templates. Your update to {{Greek alphabet sidebar}} broke the images on all of the pages. I just finished fixing those. Nunabas (talk) 16:17, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Was aware, was leaving them that way on purpose as part of some other changes to do all at once. But thanks for fixing them. -DJSasso (talk) 17:04, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

JRS[change source]

Basically any sock that includes "Smith" in it or writes about a "Smith" is JaySmith2018. They pretend to be new users, and their userpage commonly includes some variation of,"I also occasionally revert vandalism and spam". See User:Vermont/Reports/JRS for a list of socks. Thanks, Vermont (talk) 20:40, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Yeah no I realize that, I think I just didn't notice the smith yesterday. Was too early in the morning I think. -DJSasso (talk) 11:44, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Yeah sometimes they can be hard to notice. I remember around 1-2 weeks ago they came under the persona of a dog, and I didn't identify it as them for a few days. Vermont (talk) 12:32, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

Template:Col-end[change source]

Stray DIV, can you unprotect this template so a repair can be made? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 12:30, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

I believe that div is there to close the one in Template:div col but yeah I can unprotect it. -DJSasso (talk) 12:59, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

more common names[change source]

Please, can you move Qoppa to Koppa (letter) according to w:en:Koppa (letter) at en-wiki? Unicode itself says Koppa, see official pdf, article too primarily says Koppa in itself. According to Wikipedia:Follow English Wikipedia: Please make space to page move of Qoppa into Koppa according to article content and then move Qoppa to Koppa to match spelling with w:en:Koppa (letter). Unicode itself says Koppa, see official pdf, article too primarily says Koppa in itself in BOTH enwiki and simplewiki. (talk) 14:34, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Follow English Wikipedia does not apply to article titles. Those can very much differ here. That guidelines is about guidelines. If the policy doesn't exist here we make en's policy a guideline here. I am unaware of a policy that requires us to move that article. I will however look into moving it. -DJSasso (talk) 18:04, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Regardless of it all, Unicode calls this letter Koppa and not Qoppa. (talk) 18:39, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
Right, but we are also not Unicode. -DJSasso (talk) 18:40, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Pagemoves[change source]

You moved letters from alpha to omega, according to plain English Wikipedia, but plain English template links additional letters to following English pages:

Can you assign them same names here? (talk) 19:32, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Unicode naming[change source]

I consider letter names deviating from Unicode ones as multivariant/confusing. All glyphs being proper Greek letters are under *GREEK*LETTER* naming wildcard and are only bearing one name variant per letter. I mean them all from - their unique names sum up to 32 letters. Collation is according to: (talk) 16:08, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Cat[change source]

Why do YOU REMOVED THE PICTURE ON Cat that I added??? Roj Serbest Kerîm Talk with me 13:25, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Can't connect Rudaw Media Network[change source]

Can u connect it to the real site link? Roj Serbest Kerîm Talk with me 16:17, 11 December 2018 (UTC)

update of attribution template[change source]

For what particular reason are you updating the attribution template on certain Wikipedia articles? Angela Maureen (talk) 16:35, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

So that the English one matches the other languages in a more uniform way. -DJSasso (talk) 16:39, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Movies by language[change source]

Are you taking into account that the category can just be removed if the language is specified in an infobox? --Auntof6 (talk) 13:46, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Same for the year category, although I know that's not what you're working on. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:47, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
At this point no, because the code in the infobox takes that into account. Well the new code will once I figure out why it wouldn't place some categories on the pages. Either way having both isn't an issue as the system knows to ignore one anyway and sometimes you might want to manually have one on for alphabetizing reasons. -DJSasso (talk) 13:49, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
But I will probably make a pass checking for that after the initial pass anyway. -DJSasso (talk) 13:50, 13 December 2018 (UTC)

Periodic tables[change source]

Might be a good idea to import

from En wiki. It's better than the hand-made one we have and less vulnerable to changes by users (page Extended periodic table). Macdonald-ross (talk) 11:01, 16 December 2018 (UTC))

@Macdonald-ross: There I think I bought everything for it over. -DJSasso (talk) 17:25, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Template:Infobox animanga[change source]

Hello Djsasso, I was trying to import en:Template:Infobox animanga and some related templates but was not able to. Most of our articles at Category:Anime still lack the necessary infobox templates. So, can you please help in importing those templates? --BRP ever 04:55, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

Yeah I can take a look in the next couple days. Still a little busy from the holidays. -DJSasso (talk) 13:53, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Yeah I took a short look at some of them and it will take a bit to do. Once I can sit down and focus on it I will start bringing them over. The biggest issue with them is they do a lot of automatic category adding, which isn't always an issue, but it seems in the case of these articles alot of them might end up being single item categories so I will have to go through and figure it out. -DJSasso (talk) 18:13, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
I brought over a bunch that should help for now, haven't put them on pages yet. But should be able to help you out. -DJSasso (talk) 18:21, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, I am listing the necessary categories here to work on making enough items for the categories.--BRP ever 02:16, 2 January 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @BRPever: Please try to make that a priority. All those redlinked anime and manga categories have been clogging the wanted categories page. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:57, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Happy New Year![change source]

Happy 2019 Djsasso! Angela Maureen (talk) 17:39, 30 December 2018 (UTC)

Recent vandalism[change source]

Would RevDel be appropriate for the recent vandalism on your talk page? IWI (chat) 14:03, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

You could certainly make a case for it and it would be understandable if anyone did it. However, I tend to stick very closely to the if it can't be oversighted then it can't be RevDeled rule. And something like this wouldn't be able to be oversighted as it is just run of the mill vandalism. -DJSasso (talk) 14:07, 15 January 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough, it’s pretty severe. IWI (chat) 14:09, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Cleaners[change source]

My thinking was, since the word links directly to the verb, it would be easier to understand. IWI (chat) 15:43, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Template:Country data New York (state)[change source]

You recently imported a new copy of this template. It appears to be a duplicate of Template:Country data New York. Should we redirect one to the other (and adjust the interwikis in Wikidata)? --Auntof6 (talk) 11:43, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

 Done -DJSasso (talk) 12:33, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 12:37, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

extending orphaned articles limit to 8,000[change source]

Can you please have the orphaned articles limit extended to 8,000? 'Cause looking at the number of orphaned pages when the limit is 5,000 is not enough; there are probably more than 7,500 orphaned articles on the Simple English Wikipedia at this very moment. Angela Maureen (talk) 20:36, 17 January 2019 (UTC)

Not sure what limit on orphaned articles you are talking about. -DJSasso (talk) 20:45, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) @September 1988: Are you talking about Special:LonelyPages? I think that limit is on many special pages, and I don't think we can change it. Does being able to see 5000 of them not give you enough to work on? --Auntof6 (talk) 21:34, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
@Auntof6: The 5,000 limit restricts the ability to see how many orphaned pages there are besides the ones that are already listed. There are many other orphaned pages in addition to those articles. Angela Maureen (talk) 21:46, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
See meta:Help:Special page. Pages like Special:LonelyPages are limited to 5000 results. It's not something that can be adjusted. Only (talk) 21:49, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, User:Only. @September 1988: I suspect it's to limit how much in computer resources has to be spent scanning the database to produce the special pages. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:30, 17 January 2019 (UTC)
