Rolling Stones redirect move contestedEdit

Hello User:Gonnym. I think a current entry at WP:RMTR#Requests to revert undiscussed moves might be a complaint about a move of the redirect that you did recently. Thanks, EdJohnston (talk) 19:55, 5 November 2020 (UTC)

MCU file names updateEdit

Hey Gonnym. So as I'm sure you've seen, I've gone through and moved some of the files you had in your sandbox area. I wanted to talk through what remains. Many of these are VFX comparison shots, so I'm wondering if they should have another name beyond simply "[Content] in [film]". That'll cover much of the first set of files and some of those character ones. Also, for fully CGI characters (Thanos, Dormammu, and Korg) we've been using the naming format they are currently at, so I don't think those should change. I can see an argument for the Thanos one switching to include Brolin, but not Dormammu or Korg. Thanks. - Favre1fan93 (talk) 22:53, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

  • Regarding the VFX, I agree. I was also thinking about that and I think I commented that somewhere in the /sandbox. Regarding Dormammu/Korg, sure, np. If some names are ok, just strike them out so I can see. Also, feel free to comment on that page so it'll be easier to follow. --Gonnym (talk) 23:37, 8 November 2020 (UTC)

The Doraemon series articlesEdit

So, Doraemon (1973 TV series) and Doraemon (1979 TV series) are both using {{Infobox television season}}, but they shouldn't be, right? (More WP:ANIME silliness, it seems! Doraemon (2005 TV series), at least, looks to be using the correct {{Infobox television}}.)

Is there a script or something that can do a "fast replace" of {{Infobox television season}} with {{Infobox television}}? Thanks. --IJBall (contribstalk) 06:10, 13 November 2020 (UTC)

  • The anime articles might either be incorrectly disambiguated or use an incorrect article, so it takes a bit more work to validate that, but generally yes. Series articles should use the series infobox, season ones should use the season infobox. Category:Television articles using incorrect infobox is a category which gets populated automatically when it detects certain issues. I used {{subst:User:Gonnym/sandbox/subst season}} to convert series infoboxes to season (juse replace the template name with that and it does the work). A season-to-series one would need to be created. --Gonnym (talk) 17:56, 13 November 2020 (UTC)
OK, I will try to remember to fix this "manually" soon, but I'm at least a week from my work load winding down to manageable levels... --IJBall (contribstalk) 19:24, 13 November 2020 (UTC)


{{Episode list}} is not suitable for use in this list because:

  1. there are more plays than episodes
  2. there is no consistent numbering of either, and {{Episode list}} requires numbering
  3. the list is very likely to be incomplete at present
  4. {{Episode list}} does not generate anchors using titles

Jim Craigie (talk) 13:55, 16 November 2020 (UTC)

  • How are there more plays than episodes? And even if there were, split episode usages are already present in numerous pages, so that isn't an issue.
several episodes contain more than one play
  • The numbering should be based on broadcast order, unless otherwise noted (and for a very good reason). The list should under no circumtstance be a random one or based on editor preference. If the current numbering doesn't match, then it should be fixed.
so adding missing episodes changes anchors created by episode table thus breaking links to them
  • The list being incomplete does not matter. Again, if the numbering does not match, then correct the numbering.
  • The template does not generate anchors using titles, so?
Only use of titles gives anchors that remain constant as episodes are added
I don't see how the template is even an issue. On the other hand, the template now made this page consistent with thousands of television pages, fixed style issues and allows for easier maintenance. --Gonnym (talk) 14:07, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
Also, just to let you know, your table was created by you 2 days ago, meaning that I could have easily reverted back to the status-quo version. Unlike you, I try not to WP:OWN pages. --Gonnym (talk) 14:21, 16 November 2020 (UTC)
Hmm, seems to me that you are trying to own use of a template which is not suitable for drama anthologies, where overall sorting by writer and director is highly useful.
Any numbering you assign is likely to be wrong, and in any case is a Wikipedia artifact that shouldn’t be visible to readers. Therefore only anchors using titles are useful.

Wiki Ed subpagesEdit

  • Not sure where to post this, but this seemed like the correct place. There are many sub-pages of Wikipedia:Wiki Ed ([1]), but that page is a soft redirect and the actual page is at Wikipedia:Education program. Those sub-pages should move so they all are all much easily searchable, especially with tools like the above sub-page tool. Also when navigating between pages, not being sent to the redirect or have the title change is an added bonus.--Gonnym (talk) 11:09, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
    • @Gonnym:, I tried moving some pages individually, because swapping isn't a fine option there. If we, for the time sake do this, a number of 100 sub-pages can be moved with it (only if we move the main page as well, which we don't have to). I guess these pages should be moved individually whenever you have time. These are about 4000 subpages, and "destination targets" don't exist. Can be moved easily, but I don't know any tool with which we can move multiple pages. Hope Anthony Appleyard might be having any idea since they are an admin, and they are mostly active at RMT. ─ The Aafī (talk) 05:27, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
