Done x2. If you are finding that you need to make edits to protected pages on other wikis as well, maybe request global interface editor? DannyS712 (talk) 22:33, 13 September 2020 (UTC)
I don't have enough credibility to request it at present, and there are some technical things I really really shouldn't have God like powers to break. But thanks for the vote of confidence. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 23:01, 13 September 2020 (UTC)

Lint (ongoing)Edit

No one's told me I'm doing anything wrong yet...Edit

Not a good sign...

I'd appreciate someone doing a check on my edits in Wikiquote namespace, especially the repairs to signatures, and so on. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:07, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Sure, I'll take a look when I have some time (I've been checking the edits I've made for you though) and may also set up AWB to make some of the changes myself DannyS712 (talk) 20:19, 14 September 2020 (UTC)

Lint - QOTDEdit

And fixed a QOTD, using {{Pbri}} for speed.

Lint - Edit request for protected page...Edit

I attempted another lint repair here- Wikiquote:Recentchanges/sandbox ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:38, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Request for edits to protected templates..Edit

Wikiquote:Quote of the day/2003

Final list should be wrapped by

<div style="font-size:smaller;">
...
</div>

instead of small tags. (this is the approach I've also used for the same situation elsewhere.) ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 14:43, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

 Y Done DannyS712 (talk) 14:44, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

The massive edit needed (which is why I asked about AWB)Edit

Category: Category:VfD archive entries

Search string: No further edits should be made to this page. </div> <!--Template:Vfd bottom-->

Replacement: No further edits should be made to this page.'' </div> <!--Template:Vfd bottom-->

Note I've used Syntaxhighlight here so I don't generate more errors in giving the pattern to look for. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:50, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Okay. Do you want me to make these edits, or do you want to request AWB yourself? DannyS712 (talk) 16:59, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
If you already have admin bit, it would be more sensible for you to do them in batches with a detailed edit summary. Thanks.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:33, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
Of course the pattern given may need to be refined based on experience, so I would just do 20 or so edits as a 'test' to start with.. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:34, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
Technically it's only those that appear in the category AND listed ad https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Special:LintErrors/missing-end-tag?namespace=4 that need looking into, but I wasn't sure how easy it was to write a Quarry query to do the intersection of the Category concerned and the LintError sub-report.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 19:39, 16 September 2020 (UTC)
Okay, I'll do it at some point (probably this weekend) DannyS712 (talk) 20:36, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Wikiquote:Quote of the day/February 14

This has a missing closing italic.. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 18:00, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

 Y Done DannyS712 (talk) 18:01, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Lint...Edit

Slowly ever slowly..

I've been very carefully doing some bold and italic tag matching on Talk pages and there are many pages I skipped over, because I couldn't be sure. If you want me to stop, or confine the Linter removal edits to certain namespaces, Please say so after consultation with your fellow administrators.

I think I am starting to reach the limits of what I fell comfortable attempting to repair on some pages. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:05, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know DannyS712 (talk) 20:10, 17 September 2020 (UTC)

Request for edits to protected templates..Edit

https://en.wikiquote.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Db/sandbox&oldid=2859493

I removed an obselete tag.

I'd appreciate someone taking on the remaining Misnested and stripped tags. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:44, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

 Y Done DannyS712 (talk) 16:58, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Shaking the tree harder.... we are into fall...Edit

I changed this to eliminate the deprecated CENTER tag Template:QoD/sandbox , needs review. I've used the center block approach from English Wikisource. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:04, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Hmm, the current display isn't actually centered. Maybe just remove the center tags to avoid altering the output? DannyS712 (talk) 17:08, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Whatever works.. For me the centering was design choice, but if you think otherwise, I'll leave it to your discretion...

Also : - Template:People by name/sandbox..ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:19, 18 September 2020 (UTC)


BTW Clearing up the remaining misnested FONT and CENTER tags will allow for a BOT to potentially convert them to more modern syntax at a later date, (Wikiversity had a maintaince script that did/does this automatically.)ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:19, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Removed the center tags from QoD, copied your edit for People by name DannyS712 (talk) 17:37, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:58, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

Removing center is relatively painless, other templates can be updated per the approach I've already used.ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 17:58, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

my editsEdit

I have already stated in the edit summaries why I was removing or adding content. Rupert loup is undoing my edits, and claiming I am guilty of "block evasion". Rupert has a history of poor behaviour on this wiki, he was recently banned for a week. --2001:8003:59DB:4100:5D6:EBDA:4936:13EA 02:15, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
I don't see a single edit summary explaining your removals or additions of content, just `rv` without context DannyS712 (talk) 02:16, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
not those edits, but the ones made that rupert reverted, that say things like "Trotskyist Fraction – Fourth International is hardly a notable source or a reliable source or a neutral source" and "red flag is not a good source". These are my edits that rupert reverted, and rupert wrote in the edit summary "block evasion". No idea what that is about. --2001:8003:59DB:4100:5D6:EBDA:4936:13EA 02:20, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
Plus a few of the edits I reverted of ruperts were of rupert removing content that I had added. --2001:8003:59DB:4100:5D6:EBDA:4936:13EA 02:26, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
