For many of these bibliographic works the defaultsort is simply problematic to have set in the template. Many of the works have titles, so the defsort approach is wrong. They were set up specifically for the reason of having the defsort visible, rather than buried. If you had asked me as the author of the templates, then we could have had that discussion. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:19, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Apologies. In the future, I'll make sure to discuss major changes like that before I make them, and err on the side of caution regarding what counts as a major change. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talkcontribs) 19:23, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Cleanup...(Part 2)Edit

I recentyl finished cleaning out the 'missing-end' tage linter of block level tags as far as I was able.

Any chance you could add to your list of ongoing projects, cleanup of ns0 works using raw HTML elements that are not recomended?

Like use of the HTML tags BLOCKQUOTE, FONT and CENTER directly.

Many older direct HTML usages in ns0 have templated equivalents now :)

Can you think of other 'clunky' direct HTML coding that a regexp can find, and replace with a (semanticly meaningful) templated alterantive? ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:38, 23 January 2022 (UTC)

Thaaat is a sign I need to be way more careful about copying and pasting, use the Show Changes feature, and check my recent edits to see if I've made other mistakes of that nature. What I was going for was this. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talkcontribs) 06:24, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
Think I'm gonna stick to things that are harder to screw up for a bit. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talkcontribs) 07:40, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
Checking diffs and previewing is rules to live by. Saved my behind on any number of occasions. :-) Xover (talk) 12:36, 24 January 2022 (UTC)
