Citing sources[edit]

I have previously explained to you that Wikipedia's verifiability policy applies to categories as well, but you are continuing to add an uncited category to Rayleigh–Jeans law even after Dllahr has challenged it. Please stop this disruptive behavior.      — Freoh 03:03, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Rayleigh Jeans has been obsolete since 1900 or so. This, again, like on the other article, should be patently obvious to everyone. And, again, because you try to pull a technicality "but it must be sourced1!1!1", this is cited. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 03:04, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not familiar with this topic area but a quick perusal of the article and what it links to indicate that it is "clearly obsolete". Freoh I think it is your behavior, rather than Headbomb's, here and elsewhere, that may be the real question. You seem very confrontational and to stubbornly plow ahead with your own angle on things without much regard to anyone or anything else. —DIYeditor (talk) 03:12, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Wikipedia's verifiability policy is not my own angle on things. The burden to demonstrate verifiability lies with Headbomb.      — Freoh 13:47, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Fair enough I'll leave you guys to sort it out. —DIYeditor (talk) 14:23, 9 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am disappointed to see that you are continuing to add uncited material. Please stop this disruption and ensure that your categories are verified, especially ones that have been previously challenged by other editors. It becomes difficult for me to assume good faith when you are continuing to edit war after I have asked you to stop.      — Freoh 00:56, 16 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Freoh: Go away and stay away. The material is cited, that you refuse to read the damned citation (including the additional ones by XOR'easter) is not my problem. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 01:01, 16 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Your rs script[edit]

At User:Doug Weller/Archaeology and racism it shows this journal [1] with a stop sign. I'm confused. I see I can still use, but of course the stop sign is a bit unfortunate. I don't mind it for YouTube which I'm also using as a source but where I know there's no problem with the particular videos. Thanks. Doug Weller talk 09:41, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm not sure what you mean by stop sign. For Historical Archaeology, my script highlights ResearchGate in yellow for general repository (WP:UPSD#General repositories), but it adds no stop sign or anything of the sort. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 10:39, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The likely culprit is User:SuperHamster/CiteUnseen.js I think. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 10:40, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks. I wondered as it was new. Doug Weller talk 14:56, 13 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Legend of the White Dragon moved to draftspace[edit]

Thanks for your contributions to Legend of the White Dragon. Unfortunately, it is not ready for publishing because it needs more sources to establish notability and it does not meet WP:GNG.. Your article is now a draft where you can improve it undisturbed for a while.

Please see more information at Help:Unreviewed new page. When the article is ready for publication, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. Alexandermcnabb (talk) 09:22, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Alexandermcnabb: really not sure why I'm being notified here, this isn't my article, and I haven't moved it to mainspace... Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 10:03, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry - a touch of finger trouble!!! Should just have informed creator... Best Alexandermcnabb (talk) 10:36, 17 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Source code of AAlertBot?[edit]

Hey Headbomb, small question. I'm finding myself wanting to do something similar to what AAlertBot does for AFD report pages (i.e. getting number of participants and relist status). Before I implement something, I wanted to check if there's already usable code to do this. Is the AAlertBot code public somewhere? Thanks, and apologies if I missed it! Suriname0 (talk) 13:41, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

AAlertBot is closed source sadly, because the code was never designed to be shared. Maybe @Hellknowz: has more advice for you there. You might be better off making a feature request at WP:AALERTS/FR than coding a different bot. Headbomb {t · c · p · b} 19:41, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the info! It's for a Toolforge tool anyway (and I haven't used C# in years), so I'll just plan to implement my own heuristic if I ever get around to it. Suriname0 (talk) 21:11, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah, the code isn't really shareable at this point. I mean, I can sort of paste you the C# code [2], but it's not like exactly a single method. I'm not just reading the page, but getting the revision history. And all of it is via custom code wrapper for Wikimedia API. And inside there's classes for everything and I can't really select and paste dozens of files. And of course C# is kind of useless for Toolforge anyway. —  HELLKNOWZ  TALK 21:34, 23 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks anyway, HK! Those regexes could still be useful! Suriname0 (talk) 00:35, 24 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
