My TodoList: User:Tjoneslo/todo

Version differences[edit]

What is the policy for handling clear and distinct rules differences between editions? The affected content is on the section labeled Imperial Banking, and the content differs sharply from what is given on page 91 of the MG2 Core Rules.

Thank you,

Edit Watchlist[edit]

The "Edit Your List of Watched pages" button on my Watchlist Page simply takes me to a blank web page ( Is there any way to restore this functionality? --WHULorigan (talk) 11:55, 24 February 2021 (EST)

It does for me too. I'll take a look --Tjoneslo (talk) 15:30, 24 February 2021 (EST)
I guess there is no work-around for this? --WHULorigan (talk) 13:18, 26 April 2021 (EDT)
If you go to Special:Watchlist, it displays your current watchlist. How many pages are currently there? Mine shows "11,781 pages are on your Watchlist (plus talk pages)". When I went to Special:EditWatchlist I saw the blank page. I checked the server logs and saw the page generating an out of memory error. Apparently the EditWatchlist is trying to generate the whole list of 11,781 pages to remove them from the watchlist. I can increase the memory limit of the server, but don't want to leave it at an increased value to avoid causing other problems on the server. Trying to generate a full list of 11,781 pages is insane and stupid, and we should file reports to fix this problem. In any case, I know what the problem is, and if you want to edit your full watchlist, let me know and I'll up the memory on the server for a few days. Tjoneslo (talk) 23:13, 26 April 2021 (EDT)
Mine says: "6,196 pages are on your Watchlist (plus talk pages). " Is there an upper limit of pages (e.g. 5000 ?) that it needs to be under? Many of the pages on my list were auto-added because of minor edits I have made that I probably do not want to track anyway. If you up the memeroy of the server, let me know and I will edit my watchlist; I just need to know what number of entries is the maximum. --WHULorigan (talk) 06:00, 27 April 2021 (EDT)
To be clear, the memory requirement is for the "EditWatchlist" page only. Pages on the watchlist is simply pointer records in the database and has little or no other effect on the wiki. I really don't have an idea of how many articles are the upper limit on using the EditWatchlist before the memory for that one page runs out. I have found if you go to Special:Preferences, then under watchlist tab, select the "Edit raw watchlist" (or go to Special:EditWatchlist/raw), this presents the entire list as a edit box. You can remove (or add) article titles to the list and press save. Tjoneslo (talk) 06:47, 27 April 2021 (EDT)
That worked - I got it down to 2885 pages. Thanks. --WHULorigan (talk) 08:50, 27 April 2021 (EDT)

Page to delete[edit]


There are too many pages now for the Special:PrefixIndex to list them all, and when used it doesn't page through the results.

File:Starships Book II0I0 Cargo Barque.pdf has been uploaded instead of the fronticepiece...Please delete this file ASAP!

T5 Artwork / Copyright[edit]

Thomas, what is the policy on uploading pictures/art found in the T5.10 core rules? Is that acceptable on the wiki, or would it be a copyright violation? I was thinking about adding some of the pictures of medals and badges to their respective articles.

Thanks for the welcome![edit]

Looking forward to exploring the Forum threads, and helping out with some of the projects as well as articles requiring work. Cheers!

/data, /sector etc[edit]

Yeah, I was hoping against hope that that would cause Dhughre (world) to display properly - it appears it isn't in the Cargo table.

Pages Moves[edit]

Thanks, still fairly new to this, and will ensure next time move in done.

I do have a couple of page delete requests from previous inexperience at page naming.

Sturray(Pesek 0314)(world) Sturray(Pr 0314)(world)

are both errors on my part, and I've done all that is required to redirect the pages, I just find it's annoying when I search :-)

And you are on the Traveller RPG discord, yes?

Add a {{delete}} template to the articles that need to be deleted. It will allow others to find them and remove them. I am on Discord, come ping me some time. Tjoneslo (talk) 22:34, 9 March 2022 (EST)

Looking for admin with sysop privileges[edit]

Hello, i wasn't sure whom to ask, but i'm looking for any admin with sysop privileges who would be able to perform a Page Deletion. The article in question is Nishant Taliyan which was probably created in some kind of spamming activity. I wasn't sure who would be able to Delete Pages, so i thought i'd ask you because you seem to perform so many useful tasks involving cleanup mechanisms behind the wiki. Thank you kindly for your time.
