Dagu Sector Dukes (2017)[edit]

499 out of 560 with less than 30 left? (2015)[edit]

Hi User: Tjoneslo, I see that Dagudashaag Sector has less than a subsector worth of worlds left (i.e. less than 30), but the "SectorWorlds2" only shows 499 out of 560 worlds. If you get a chance, can you help me troubleshoot this? And let me know what the problem was since I'm not savvy to it now. Thanks! Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 10:36, 11 July 2015 (EDT)

I am not sure where you got your "less than thirty " count from, but the first pass of entering the worlds was from the library entries in Signal-GK. That did not include every world in every subsector. At the time the Wiki policy was not to enter empty articles, meaning ones that did not have anything more than was published in the sector UWPs. So there are some missing from other subsectors that have no articles. I would tell you to ignore them, but I know you won't. Tjoneslo (talk) 12:35, 11 July 2015 (EDT)

Now, all 562 worlds out of 560 are entered. That includes two non-canon worlds not in T5SS. Every subsector shows full up. Do you want me to ignore the non-working "Sector Worlds2"? Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 12:39, 11 July 2015 (EDT)

The worlds that are missing are not there because the articles do not have all the pieces the template requires. You will have go through the articles one at a time to find the broken ones. Tjoneslo (talk) 13:17, 11 July 2015 (EDT)

Ok. I think I would like to try and pleasantly surprise you. You wrote "I would tell you to ignore them, but I know you won't." So, I'll ignore them. Wishing you well. Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 13:23, 11 July 2015 (EDT)

The light dawns. The SectorWorlds2 list is generated by the Dynamic Page List tool. By default this has a limit of 500 items. So the list has only 500 items on it because the query only returns the first 500 items. The reason for this is a combination of not wanting to overload the server with trying to process many items in a query and returning a very long list to the user. We'll run into this problem on the Domain pages using the SectorWorlds2 template as well. I need to talk to Aramis about server use before changing the default for the DPL.

Thank you very much, Tjoneslo. Awesome find. I always appreciate your help. Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 23:48, 11 July 2015 (EDT)

Use SectorWorlds3 (2015)[edit]

The 500 item limit on the Dynamic Page List tool means that both the {{SectorWorlds}} and the {{SectorWorlds2}} do not show all the worlds in the sector. Hence I keep changing this back the {{SectorWorld3}} template. Please stop changing it. Tjoneslo (talk) 19:05, 23 November 2015 (EST)

Understood. Sectorworlds3 it is. Maksim-Smelchak (talk) 19:44, 23 November 2015 (EST)
