Project complete (I think)Edit

I have updated the progress table and added a few notes to this project page to indicate that, as far as I can tell, this project is complete. Post here or modify the page if I missed anything. Nice work, everyone. It's nice to get a project like this completed on WP. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:44, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

Was I premature in June?[1] Where's the after-party? ―Mandruss  04:27, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
Just a bit. There were some off-Earth templates (for Moon craters and such) that were done in June and July. The party starts in western Europe in just under 5 hours UTC and will continue for 24 hours! – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:11, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
I don't think I can swim that fast, but I'll be there in spirit. ―Mandruss  04:33, 1 January 2018 (UTC)

OK to delete Category:Pages using deprecated coordinates format?Edit

Are we ready to delete Category:Pages using deprecated coordinates format? I do not think it has any further use. – Jonesey95 (talk) 21:46, 27 December 2017 (UTC)

I marked it with a speedy-delete template. Act fast if you want to keep it. – Jonesey95 (talk) 19:13, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Coordinates display above infoboxEdit

I just created the page Tomb of Lord Yanju, with a historical site infobox and coordinates. For some reason, the coordinates display both in the infobox and above it. It doesn't look horrible, just not right. Is there a way to fix it? Jacqke (talk) 15:43, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

That's pretty much the standard way of displaying coordinates here. It's produced by the "display=inline,title" parameter in the {{coord}} template. Deor (talk) 16:07, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
@Jacqke: You are two orders of magnitude over the maximum recommended precision. See WP:COORDPREC and the section preceding it. ―Mandruss  16:14, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
I figured it was too precise. I was just happy I finally got the coordinates to work; it was very difficult to find the location to get them. I understand the military's grid ref system and trimming numerals there, but I haven't looked up how to trim them from Lat and longitudes, yet... Thank youJacqke (talk) 16:19, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
@Jacqke: I went ahead and reduced the precision to the maximum recommended.[2]Mandruss  16:24, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Thank you, I appreciate it. Jacqke (talk) 16:29, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
