Perelman School of Medicine at the University of PennsylvaniaEdit

Note to self and anyone else interested.

Category:Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania should it be a portal too? If yes, we really need a means to autopopulate (minor) portals so we do not have do lots of work in that space.

If it is not, we need to look to adapt {{authority control}} so it can be utilised with arbitrary access to WD so AC can be filled on such a page. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:26, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

To reviewEdit

billinghurst sDrewth 12:35, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

template:OGL needs an author: ns version created for use. Currently only has works version.

header WP links and the use of main subject at WDEdit

have a check to see that where we have (encyclopaedic) pages in main namespace that link wikipedia = through header, that these items at wikidata may or may not have "main subject" wikilink. Can or should we be pulling that link via WD to manage deleted and moved items, and also be prepared for any item that has a future wp link. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:35, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Category:Authors with missing death dates -> Category:Authors without death datesEdit

explore making this change. They are not missing if they are not dead, so we should cater for both scenarios without confusing things. Only would be missing of the person is alive 130 years after death. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:43, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Files to recover from CommonsEdit

monobook toolbar againEdit

Have another look at it and see if I can get it functioning. fr:Special:Gadgets <sigh> — billinghurst sDrewth 01:43, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

template:DNB linkEdit

Consider with the anchor feature whether it should project the name and state that it is part of a parent article. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:19, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

write proposal to remove "categories"Edit

  • use of this methodology overrides redirect and disambiguation aspects of templates and hotcat
  • makes maintenance harder with pywikibot, AWB and HotCat
  • put in a tracker on use
  • non-standard and should be avoided unless part of a standard
  Done and resolved. Use of category in header can be replaced. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:14, 14 February 2021 (UTC)

Clean up to do History of Abraham, Isaac, & JacobEdit

  • mv text to header
  • rm "EM"
  • replacement /\<br \/\>/g
  • cleanup script
  • note to editor
  • consider if scripts are required for other NLS works, and either do or document the AWB actions

Categorisation to fixEdit

To do: The Dictionary of Australasian BiographyEdit

  • Consider whether we want to migrate to its own header series   Done
  • review wikipedia and wikidata linking   Done => {{topicmatcher}} implemented
  • Check readiness to export
