Reverting multiple changesEdit

It doesn't happen every day, but I had a couple of instances today (e.g. Hysteria and Chemical change) where separate vandals made several edits, making it quite difficult to revert to the previous/last good version. What I do is manually copy that latest good version and make it as a new change. What other methods or tools would you recommend that will make those switch smoother and easier? — Infogapp1 (talk) 13:59, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

If you can't just click undo, one way to do it is go back to the last good version in the history and click on the date for it. It will open the page on that version of the page, at which point you can click edit and it will warn you that you are editing an old version of the page. Then just save it and it will save that version as the new version. -Djsasso (talk) 14:36, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Oh, that's neat. Will do, thanks! — Infogapp1 (talk) 14:38, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Unrelated, but I couldn't seem to be able to use 'red links' tag anymore? I wanted to use it for Toray Pan Pacific Open. Or, has it been decided it's no longer needed to use such taggings? — Infogapp1 (talk) 10:45, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
As far as I know it still exists. I will look into it. -Djsasso (talk) 11:27, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
It still does, indeed. I was typing it as separate words when it should just be 1 word. You can take this off your checklist, thanks. — Infogapp1 (talk) 21:15, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks again for leading me towards the right direction about rollbacks. That's quite handy as I didn't realise I can do it with Twinkle. I'm yet to get a hang of the process for proposing to merge a duplicate page. Is there somehow a feature on Twinkle that helps make this the merge proposal just like QD/RfD and the likes that I may be missing? — Infogapp1 (talk) 20:31, 28 June 2020 (UTC) ┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I'm not seeing much media coverage about Decode Entertainment and the fact that it was acquired by DHX Media, IMO, I would like to propose for it to be either redirected or merged as the company that acquired it has more media coverage (despite the current copy being more in the Decode Entertainment article. What's the best way to go about this? Should I go through usual RfD and include my proposal in the comments? Or is there another process I may not be aware of? — Infogapp1 (talk) 18:25, 30 June 2020 (UTC) ┌─────────────────────────────────┘
I finally got the courage to look deeper into archiving. I've set up your bot (at least I hope I did it right, haha). Thanks for introducing it to me, as despite several attempts, I couldn't seem to get ClueBot III to work. — Infogapp1 (talk) 13:55, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

My talk pageEdit

Hello Djsasso. Can you explain your change to my talk page? You did not leave change summary. The change that you made is: https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:HugoHelp&oldid=7011772 --HugoHelp (talk) 00:13, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

Sorry I meant to leave one. Transcluding that page puts you in a category your talk page shouldn't be in. By all means use the text of that page on your talk page, but transcluding the whole thing is miscategorizing your talk page. -Djsasso (talk) 00:17, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Ok, thank you. --HugoHelp (talk) 02:29, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

OnestrikeEdit

Should we be adding the WP:ONESTRIKE note on this user's Simple profile? I'm not seeing the account being disruptive in this project [yet]. Instead, s/he seems to be cooperative when given objective feedback, but thought I'd double-check. — Infogapp1 (talk) 16:29, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Leave that to admins. We generally only mention it if it looks like they are heading towards a block. But really the point of one strike is that there is no warning. We just do it. -Djsasso (talk) 21:49, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
10-4 :) — Infogapp1 (talk) 21:50, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

wikidata infoboxEdit

Hi, please do not revert a blank wikidata infobox as here [1] , i will sweep through wikidata to add references to fill these out. alternatively, you could change the wikidata infobox to drop the reference requirement, which is an english thing. cheers. Slowking4 (talk) 13:18, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Generally we don't have empty infoboxes so they get removed when they are not displaying anything but the name. It is preferable that you add information before you add the infobox. Since you say you will be looping through I will give you some time to do that. But if they are still empty after awhile they will likely get removed. -Djsasso (talk) 13:52, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
i would suggest not importing the bitey practices of english, but rather linking practices of catalan. if there is a reference in the article then nudge editors to edit wikidata. or change the wikidata infobox to not require a reference. wikidata infoboxes are a major innovation for small wikis. Slowking4 (talk) 23:04, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
Unfortunately the community at wikidata is very small, and because of this there is a very large amount of mistakes in their data so requiring references is necessary to ensure the integrity of our wiki. -Djsasso (talk) 14:01, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Archiving botEdit

I've managed to get your bot running, but looks like I may need to specify some parameters for it to work? For example, I'm seeing an error in the archived page. — Infogapp1 (talk) 14:59, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Took me a few to get it fixed. Looks like you are the first person to have it setup this way. Other people do the months but looks like they have been manually adding the links themselves. But you should be all good now. -Djsasso (talk) 15:24, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
I would take me forever to figure it out, even if I tried, haha. Thank you so much! — Infogapp1 (talk) 15:27, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
Fixed you over on en.wiki as well. I don't run the bot there but the setup is the same. -Djsasso (talk) 15:28, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
You're heaven-sent, thanks very much. — Infogapp1 (talk) 15:32, 14 July 2020 (UTC)
