Template:Infobox route mapEdit

Was the template replaced before you deleted it, or are there ~250 pages with a missing template? AlgaeGraphix (talk) 05:27, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) You can see that there are no transclusions by looking at Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:Infobox route map. – Jonesey95 (talk) 06:58, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
AlgaeGraphix, you can find the bot edits here. Many could probably be improved since the infobox was being used to show very little information, or the infobox could be moved to the main article. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 14:43, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

Problem with SporkBot Bot Task 8Edit

For the cleanup of Template:Infobox mountain, I was spot-checking the results of the bot, and found an unusual case at White Mountains (New Hampshire).

The previous version of the article had |region=New England and |region1=. The bot added |subdivision2_type=Regions. I think the bot should not have added |subdivision2_type=Regions because region1 was empty. Does the code check for the parameter name and not whether the value is non-blank? That might be what is going on.

Thanks for your help! — hike395 (talk) 05:57, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

hike395, thanks for spotting the problem! I created Category:Pages using infobox mountain with potentially incorrectly plural labels to find/fix any other bad edits (it will take some time to fill up the tracking category). You are correct, that it was incorrectly matching empty parameters when doing the logic for the labels, but it looks like it is doing the right thing for the enumeration part. I will fix the code before running it on any more articles. Thanks again! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 17:27, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for adding the code for the tracking category! Would you like me to fix the infoboxes in that category? I don't know whether you need those examples to fix your code. — hike395 (talk) 17:58, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
hike395, you can go ahead and fix them if you want (I saved a list of one from each subcategory). Many are "false positives" where the label is plural but there is no data content. I can tweak the tracking to filter those out, but in some cases you may want to remove the label. The bot is currently slowly silently purging all transclusions of the infobox, so the tracking category should be filled in about 12 hours. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 18:28, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

To let you know, there was a data loss on Karakoram (which I've now fixed). It looks like your code assumes that parameters would be invoked in order, but on the old version of Karakoram, region (etc.) were non-contiguous. — hike395 (talk) 21:17, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

Another example of data loss due to out-of-order parameters: [1]hike395 (talk) 21:58, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

hike395, that's bad! Thank you for finding it! There was a problem in how I was marking where to place the merged parameters which caused it to remove the merge point before the list was placed. So, it had no where to place the merged list and didn't report an error. I have fixed the code. I plan to review all the bots edits [2][3][4] and compiling a list of all bad edits for further code testing before running the bot again. Thank you again! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 16:43, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
I know fully automated bots are very difficult to get 100% right --- editors do all sorts of odd things that are quite hard to anticipate. Thanks again for all of your efforts on this Task!! — hike395 (talk) 19:56, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Request revision deletionEdit

Hi. I would like to request revision deletion of Special:Diff/1000938838 (addition), Special:Diff/1000953501 (removal), and any intermediate revisions between the two revisions that may contain the offensive material per RD2. – Ase1estet@lkc0ntribs 15:15, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi Aseleste, could you ask another admin? I haven't done complicated revision deletion before. Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 15:34, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

what did sporkbot do...?Edit

sporkbot changed something on my user page that i am confused what the point of was. I just copy pasted it from a user's talk page that was temporarily blocked that someone put on there, so if they did something wrong i'm sorry. link to edit is here [[5]]

thanks, Firestar9990 (talk) 03:11, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Firestar9990, the bot replaced Template:border-radius (which was deleted) with the equivalent inline CSS string. There is nothing to be concerned about. The border-radius template had been used on several thousand pages, but it was decided that it was no longer needed since typing "border-radius: 40px;" is easier than typing "{{border-radius|40px}}". Thanks! Plastikspork ―Œ(talk) 14:19, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for translation - article is now liveEdit

Hello - just to let you know that the article is now in Climate change in Brazil so translations can be put in there rather than in my sandbox. If you have time I am sure you would be able to improve the article a lot, as I think the Portuguese one it is linked to is rather out of date. Also you might like to nominate it for DYK if you have an idea for a good hook. Chidgk1 (talk) 06:13, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Category:Congressional delegations from Kentucky navigational boxes Edit

Those templates are missing because nobody has (yet) made them. —GoldRingChip 17:31, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

This is the 2nd time you helped edit my translations-[Long-term effects of alcohol consumption] and [Single-payer healthcare] especially in the part of references.(I recognized you'd helped some other time) I'm a retired person, used to work in the financial field, what you've done, to me, is sort of mysterious, but I can guess the modifications brought the dead reference to live. Maybe you can help enlighten me. Thanks. p.s. I've got another 76 translations waiting for me to edit, I started translating the healthcare and medicine related topics in March of 2020.
