00:41 < GorillaWarfare> Ecco_the_Dolphin: What, one day?
00:41 < SigmaWP>  The reason China had such a horrible 19th and 20th century, and the Qing lost power, is because there was essentially a 60-year period1 of constant war, famine, and a general collapse of traditional society due to the upheavals caused by the introduction of European ways, especially opium, Christianity, and the potato.
00:41 < SigmaWP> The potato
00:41 < SigmaWP> What

00:50 < Ironholds> well, you're overthinking
00:50 < Ironholds> it could be economic
00:50 < Ecco_the_Dolphin> come to think of it I dont know any Chinese alcoholic drinks
00:50 < Ironholds> potato is better at thriving than traditional staple foods leading to a population glut as food gets cheaper coupled with rising unemployment in farming classes.

11:30 < SoapX> anyway i misunderstood you earlier
11:30 < LtNOWIS2> bah, I failed at searching then
11:30 < SoapX> i thought you were saying it was a literal word-for-word recreation with almost no changes
11:31 < LtNOWIS2> but like, if we delete an article on Joe Schmo, and then another editor creates an unrelated article, it's supposed to be deleted again
11:31 < LtNOWIS2> it's like, speedy-able.
11:31 < SoapX> only if the content has no significant changes
11:32 < SoapX> that's generally understood to apply mainly to self-promotion articles where one person is just being stubborn and trying to sneak the article in when others arent watching

12:54 < Jan_telco> well, Snowden has done his share since the Germans are up in arms over the NSA the issue isn't going away prior to the federal election in Berlin. Time for him to look for a quiet datscha and retire

12:59 < FastLizard4> The next U.S. federal election cycle is going to be interesting

13:04 < SoapX> wow I didnt know that there were people with *no* email account
13:04 < FastLizard4> TheDruId: Would you still give them permission if you found out they planned to arrest you as a political prisoner?
13:05 < SoapX> I mean having an email and just not reading it outside of absolutely important things is pretty common. I do that

16:25 < Ironholds> dtm: what do you mean?
16:25 < GorillaWarfare> dtm: For logged-in editors
16:25 < Ironholds> it's been an opt-in since December 2012
16:25 < Ironholds> and has been part of a randomised A/B test since early June.
16:25 < Ironholds> can you think of another interim step between "people get it if they want it", "people get it randomly" and "people get it all the time"?
16:25 < dtm> Ironholds: oic.  so it's been public, but not default, since dec 2012.
16:25 < Ironholds> yup
16:25 < dtm> ok.
16:26 < Ironholds> now we're switching it to default

16:26 < Ironholds> UltimateKyurem: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor

16:26 < UltimateKyurem> Thanks.
16:26 < dtm> Ironholds: and the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VisualEditor page is accurate in saying that the new public default editor is known to be buggy and limited?
16:26 < dtm> Ironholds: or is that information old

16:27 < dtm> guillom: two tabs is probably a good idea.
16:27 < Ironholds> the only way to only deploy when it's perfect is never to deploy.
16:27 < guillom> dtm: and two edit links for section titles
16:28 < dtm> guillom: that's good
16:28 < dtm> so.  given the known buggy output that it generates, i wonder if it's easy to manually identify and fix those in wikitext.
16:28 < dtm> the "odd-looking" and "incomplete editing" etc
16:28 < Ironholds> dtm: yep
16:28 < Ironholds> there's a VisualEditor tag that gets attached to any edit made with the VE.

16:29 < dtm> ok.  i hope it's easy for a human to manually identify and fix what part of the wikitext is corrupt though
16:29 < dtm> OlEnglish: yeah.
16:30 < dtm> Ironholds: so i guess it's possible that half or more of an article's wikitext content could be comprised of VE notification metadata ;)

16:34 < dtm> it would seem that if wikitext was that difficult, people wouldn't have been editing for long enough to be considered in the retention thingie.  they just wouldn't do it.  did they also factor in the barrage of social negativity, the archaic disorganization, the information overload, and the overall impenetrability of basic orientation?

16:38 < dtm> and yeah wikitext would have been the next hurdle, in terms of slightly more advanced copyediting.  and then after i've inched up to the edge of that diving board, it's all off the deep end from there.
16:39 < dtm> nonetheless!  VE is surely quite an achievement.  nothing detracts from that.  i'm just chattin.  and i look forward to some capacity of offline editing of full wikitext, other than making my own installation of mediawiki ;)

16:51 < dtm> SoapX: a more thorough answer for your question as to why anyone would ever think that caps are shouting, is basically found (though i can't find it) in a wikipedia article explaining the basic human deficiency of differentiating between an idea and a real thing.  people tend to think that an idea or intangible thing or attributes of a thing, are actually a real, concrete thing or event
16:51 < dtm> SoapX: and then you probably also have some tiny limited experience of Some Dude who did deliberately say that he's shouting, by using all caps, and he was very mean about it.  and i guess ... lol.. some screen readers.

17:10 < Nascar1996> No consensus?
17:11 < SoapX> Smith and Turner formed an alliance to build the track, and they signed a contract with NASCAR to run a 600-mile event on Memorial Day. Once the construction crew broke ground, they found a layer of granite under the topsoil, making the construction costly. The area for the first turn alone used $70,000 worth of dynamite, making Turner's $750,000 construction plan near two million dollars.
17:11 < SoapX>  In the spring of 1960, Turner begged for a six-week postponement for the race after a snow storm delayed the pouring on concrete.  With two weeks remaining until the inaugural race, the paving subcontractor threatened to leave the job site for lack of payment. To solve the problem, Turner and one of his friends threatened the paving subcontractor with a shotgun and a revolver to make
17:11 < SoapX> sure the track's backstretch would be completed.

17:33  * FastLizard4 arrests BobTheWikipedian for illegal possession of a denied question
17:33 < BobTheWikipedian> sooooo let's say you have a series of volumes of books

18:41 < Revent> "The 50 Mt three stage Tsar Bomba (King of Bombs) tested by the Soviet Union on 30 October 1961 was the largest and cleanest bomb ever tested, with 97% of its yield coming from fusion (fission yield approximately 1.5 Mt). Assuming a primary of 250 kt (to keep the fissile content relatively low for safety reasons), we might postulate secondary and tertiary stages of 3.5 Mt and 46 Mt respectively. Thi
18:41 < Revent> s fusion stages would require 1700 kg of Li6D (at 50% fusion efficiency), and something like 250 kt of fission for reliable ignition. If the initial spark plug firings were 25% efficient, later fission would release another 750 kt - placing the total at 1.25 Mt (close enough to the claimed parameters to match within the limits of accuracy).

19:09 < Nascar1996> foks: So your reason for not using Vector is the drop down menus?
19:09 < foks> there are a few other reasons, but that's a pretty big one
19:10 < Sky2042> The dropdown menus make deletion a pain.
19:10  * Sky2042 is just sayin'.
19:10 < Nascar1996> o_O
19:10 < foks> They make pretty much everything a pain.
19:10 < Nascar1996> like deleting a page
19:10 < Nascar1996> ?
19:10 < foks> Yes.
19:10 < Sky2042> Rather, mass deletion of pages.

19:10 < Nascar1996> ah
19:10 < foks> You have to like, mouse over the menu and pray it doesn't randomly shut itself etc.
19:11 < SoapX> Monobook is the only one worthy of serious use
19:11 < Sky2042> It used to be shift + tab, click for 15 sets of pages, then the same thing to delete. Now it's hold mouse for dropdown, then move mouse, then click.
19:11 < Nascar1996> Is there a pie chart showing what amount of users use which?

20:49 < MJ94> Nascar1996: whaaa
20:49 < Nascar1996> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:VE
20:50 < SoapX> yeah
20:50 < MJ94> jesus there's two edit buttons
20:50 < SoapX> Visual Editor is the biggest change in the last 3 months
20:51 < Nascar1996> MJ94: just add importScript('User:Matma Rex/VE killer.js') to common.js to disable it
20:52 < GorillaWarfare> Wow, so he _just_ notices teh VE and you're already telling him to disable it?
20:52 < D_> To be fair, that's probably the first reaction of a lot of people
20:52 < D_> Justified or not
20:52 < GorillaWarfare> D_: AGH CHANGE
20:52 < D_> Pretty much
20:53 < D_> During the beta I disabled VE for a period of time because I kept clicking the wrong button
20:54 < Nascar1996> GorillaWarfare: Most of the editors probably will not like it. It is only good for editing text. Even adding a wikilink is complicated on VE.
20:54 < Isarra> .
20:54 < SoapX> its good for editing tables
20:54 < SoapX> but still buggy
20:54 < Nascar1996> SoapX: If you don't have to add more to it
20:54 < MJ94> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:MJ94/sandbox
20:54 < MJ94> I did it!
20:54 < SoapX> and sssslllloooooowwww
20:54 < GorillaWarfare> Nascar1996: I don't mind it, and I think that it will lower the bar for new editors. It's still new, and there are bugs, but I don't feel the need to condemn it.

20:57 < MJ94> Ironholds: I like it!
20:57 < GorillaWarfare> MJ94: Because it's more familiar to new users
20:57 < Nascar1996> MJ94: Because it will go from people who are using it because they want to, to all users.
20:57 < GorillaWarfare> MJ94: Wikitext is scary to new users
20:57 < MJ94> New RFA nom: X should be an admin because he knows how to /edit the source/

21:04 < SoapX> eh
21:04 < SoapX> i'd be hesitant
21:04 < D_> To be fair, I'd expect an admin to have at least some very basic familiarity with wiki markup
21:04 < SoapX> it really depends on what they were planning to do as admin
21:05 < D_> Even if they were to use VE for majority of edits
21:05 < CoalBalls> I guess it's more of "I didn't learn how to use markup because I never had to" in this case
21:05 < SoapX> also Im assuming Visual Editor will improve, and that we're not just going to freeze the development and let the bugs keep on festering

21:48 < MJ94> JustBerry: yes?
21:48 < dtm> D_: so we have a lot more workage there now, but not totally.
21:48 < JustBerry> MJ94: Hello?
21:49 < JustBerry> MJ94: Need something?
21:49 < MJ94> Hello. No, you sent me an ellipsis so I was just asking. :)
21:49 < dtm> D_: so what would you suggest overall for having named references, which are grouped at least in their presentation?
21:49 < D_> The way you're doing it makes sense
21:50 < D_> Except I'd use names that are simpler
21:50 < dtm> yeah.
21:50 < dtm> D_: i guess <ref group="d" name="foo"> and <ref group="v" name="bar"> would be better.
21:50 < dtm> D_: you had mentioned figuring out some other way but i can't even imagine that
21:51 < dtm> D_: and as for group="small-alpha", i dont even know what good that is.

21:52 < D_> I actually don't know
21:52 < D_> it might go aa ab ac, etc.
21:52 < dtm> yeah.  ;)

21:54 < GorillaWarfare> CoalBalls: What?
21:54 < GorillaWarfare> It's a The revision #562480608 of the page named "Main Page" does not exist.
21:54 < CoalBalls> Oh, someone got it already
21:54 < GorillaWarfare> k
21:54 < dtm> D_: is the way i'm doing it now in my sandbox (like i had just said, with <ref group="d" name="foo">, basically how that film list is doing it?
21:55 < D_> Yes, except you're doing it in a list-defined reference
21:55 < D_> but that shouldn't make a difference
21:55 < D_> also, I was wrong, the labels are actually defined here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Cite_link_label_group-lower-alpha
21:55 < D_> So you can go up to azz and then you're out of footnotes
21:55 < ToAruShiroiNeko> GorillaWarfare it seems like interesting stuff is happening

21:56 < dtm> okay.
21:56 < ToAruShiroiNeko> It turns out US is wiretapping every dipolatic mission it can think of...
21:56 < dtm> D_: we've got the full spectrum treatment
21:56 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I wonder if they wiretap themselves out of habit...
21:56 -!- foks [~sup@wikipedia/fox] has quit [Quit: zzzz]
21:57 < D_> Well, it looks like you still have mismatched references there
21:57 < dtm> they go cruisin around in their slow-motion thug limos and sunglasses, eyeballing office buildings, goin "oh HAYL yeah, i'd totally wiretap DAT!!!"
21:57 < dtm> D_: chaos abounds.
21:57 < GabrielF> I am shocked, SHOCKED that the government is spying on foreign embassies
21:58 < D_> Yeah, isn't that the whole reason for existence of spy agencies?
21:58 < dtm> *our* government is doing WHAT NOW?
21:58 < SoapX> lol
21:58 < dtm> better watch more Burn Notice
21:59 -!- FastLizard4|away is now known as FastLizard4
21:59 < ToAruShiroiNeko> GabrielF, I am actually shocked.
21:59 < ToAruShiroiNeko> You wouldn't want to wiretap your loyal allies.
21:59 < ToAruShiroiNeko> if the word gets out people can become ex allies
21:59 < ToAruShiroiNeko> its too much of an unnecesary risk
21:59 < dtm> D_: feel free to let me know that that's just about one of the most bad ass artists' biographies you've ever seen in all your natural born days, btw.  i wrote it all.
22:00 < GabrielF> well the EU stuff probably needs some explaining, but in general there's a reason we have a huge intelligence apparatus
22:00 < D_> Well, uh, it's pretty, um, neat
22:00 < ToAruShiroiNeko> GabrielF there are conventions signed on this
22:00  * dtm flashes a blade in front of D_ 
22:00 < ToAruShiroiNeko> there is no point for countries to have embassies if they cannot have secure communicaiton with them
22:00 < D_> I mean, it's awesome
22:00 < D_> I want to donate my firstborns to it
22:00 < D_> Yes, multiple
22:00 < ToAruShiroiNeko> diplomats arent just tax free tourists
22:01 < dtm> D_: it shall not have any firstborns.  its contributions are only literary, and audiovisual.
22:01 < D_> Good, cause I don't have any
22:01 < GabrielF> the whole point of having intelligence agencies is that governments have things that they feel are necessary but not legal or, for lack of a better word, socially acceptable
22:01 < dtm> even though this article transcends this puny wiki, it  does not assimilate firstborns
22:01 < ToAruShiroiNeko> GabrielF I can kind of guess how they gotten into the EU systems
22:01 < dtm> D_: graphs!!!!!!  WE HAVE GRAPHS.
22:02 < dtm> D_: i want moar graphs hax.  ideally i'd like to have multiple colors on the same horizontal row in the same place, like if a guy played multiple instruments or something
22:02 < dtm> at the same point in the timeline
22:02 < dtm> IS POSSIBRU??
22:03 < D_> Like, with stripes or something?
22:03 < dtm> D_: i knwo there are different types of graph engines
22:03 < ToAruShiroiNeko> GabrielF I wonder how much of a hard time US diplomatic missions will get.
22:03 < D_> I've seen people just replace native graphs with SVGs to accomplish that
22:03 < ToAruShiroiNeko> any svg artists here?
22:03 < dtm> D_: i compromised on the patterns, by doing a light color.  as you can see.  but also, i would like to basically have mini lines.
22:04 < dtm> SVG file??? shiiiiiiiii
22:04 < dtm> that is beyond my present, though substantial, hax quotient
22:04 < GabrielF> we'll see, particularly with regards to US allies, but historically spying on embassies is pretty much expected
22:04 < ToAruShiroiNeko> sure
22:05 < ToAruShiroiNeko> its not suprising for Russia to listen to the US or vice versa
22:05 < ToAruShiroiNeko> the problem happens when its allies that you are treating like your enemies

22:07 < D_> without breaking a microphone
22:08 < dtm> D_: so for example, you presently see one solid green line there, but i'd also like to suddenly split that line's height in half and add another part like if he started playing harmonica for one album or something

22:11 < D_> dtm: I don't think you can split bars. You could try some fancy things with lines, but like I said, by then you might be better off doing a dedicated image
22:12 < dtm> D_: and what app would one use for this?
22:12 -!- snuffeluffegus [~snuffeluf@ps95204.dreamhost.com] has joined #wikipedia-en
22:12 < dtm> D_: does an svg file remain editable and viewable by all?
22:12 < D_> You could hand-draw it in Inkscape, but there's probably some advanced tools like matplotlib you could use
22:12 < D_> And yes, svg files are XML
22:12 < dtm> D_: is that something that is presented by mediawiki and rendered in the browser, and just downloaded?
22:12 < D_> MediaWiki renders svgs as png by default, I think
22:13 < D_> you can click through them to get the original svg
22:13 < dtm> k
22:13 < dtm> sounds good, though way more difficult
22:13 < dtm> unless there's some app just for that
22:13 < dtm> or whatnot

22:28 < SoapX> "cannon" is the plural of cannon in some contexts
22:28 < SoapX> I personally find it annoying
22:28 < SoapX> but it's not incorrect
22:28 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I think it is trying to say "commenced their attack"

22:29 < ToAruShiroiNeko> OH
22:29 < GabrielF> it seems antiquated and stuffy to me
22:29 < ToAruShiroiNeko> I know what this means
22:29 < ToAruShiroiNeko> what police did is they addec chemicals into the water supply of the water cannons

22:31 < ToAruShiroiNeko> "amalgamate" ?
22:32 < D_> dtm: Apparently it works either way
22:32 < D_> what you need to make sure is that your calls to the ref in the text actually have the group specified
22:32 < ToAruShiroiNeko> or maybe just "mix"
22:32 < D_> I think that's the problem with your sandbox article
22:33 < D_> "Most modern water cannon are also capable of adding tear gas to the stream."
22:33 < D_> Is what our article on water cannons says
22:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> thats a lie though
22:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> water cannons can only handle pepper spray
22:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> thats not really a gas

22:36 < dtm> D_: i am just wanting to verify with you that i dont really need to internally organize groups; just to present them as groups in {{reflist|group=..}}
22:36 < dtm> amirite
22:36 < dtm> for this type of article

22:38 < ToAruShiroiNeko> GabrielF do any of those suggestions work better?
22:38 < D_> Right, you don't need to explicitly specify the group inside your list

22:45 < dtm> D_: so what do you think of my discography layout?  selected discography in a table, and full discography in {{collapse}} (suboptimal for screen readers though it might be, so i've heard)
22:45 < D_> You could always spin the discog off to another article
22:46 < dtm> D_: yeah i might do that later.
22:46 < D_> I don't know what the MoS or other recommendations say about discographies
22:46 < dtm> D_: so far i haven't seen any official way to do it; the discography guidelines all say "here are some templates and suggestions but do whatever"
22:46 < D_> But, I think that collapsible is by default uncollapsed without js, and should work nicely with screen readers
22:46 < dtm> yeah it's just way too long if uncollapsed by default
22:47 < dtm> so, whatever.
22:47 < dtm> i haven't tested it with a screen reader.
22:47 < D_> Depends on the screen reader
22:47 < D_> As a rule, if it looks ok in Lynx, a screen reader can probably manage somehow
22:47 < dtm> D_: how do you like the Achievements tab?  i'm trying to pack in the most notable stuff about a given artist.

22:59 < TeeTylerToe> So edit source is how you do anything that isn't editing text that doesn't include any links
22:59 < Charmlet> TeeTylerToe: yep.
23:00 < Charmlet> TeeTylerToe: i.e. vandals inserting PENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENIS get it easier, everyone else still has to use the old editor.
23:00 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: What, the references thing?
23:00 < D_> I dunno, edit source would be faster if you just wanted to insert a lot of penis
23:00 < D_> It doesn't need to load a bucket of js
23:00 < TeeTylerToe> VE isn't enabled on the main sandbox?
23:00 < Charmlet> D_: Some vandals insert it in a <!-- html comment PENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENISPENIS inadvertantly -->
23:00 < Charmlet> TeeTylerToe: Nope.
23:01 < D_> Not enabled in WP: space

23:01 < TeeTylerToe> Is there anything good about VE?
23:01 < D_> Only mainspace and User:
23:01 < D_> So you can use it in your sandbox
23:03 < GabrielF> whoever is working on the Turkey protest article has got to stop omitting the author name from references

23:04 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=39621
23:04 < TeeTylerToe> that doesn't sound like a terrible problem, and a lot of times finding the author is difficult or impossible
23:05 < GabrielF> its usually right below the title!
23:05 < GabrielF> I'm talking about references to the New York Times, The WSJ, Foreign Policy, etc.
23:05 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: I don't know what that means
23:06 < GabrielF> especially if its an opinion piece, if you omit the author name it reads like you're citing the newspaper's editorial board, not a contributor
23:07 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: That's a bug report regarding the VisualEditor and citations. You'll notice its status is "NEW" (not "WONTFIX" or similar), and its priority is "High normal"

23:07 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: ... New means it hasn't been changed to WONTFIX yet ;P
23:07 < ToAruShiroiNeko> thats some dedication
23:08 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: I understand the BZ interface.
23:08 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: I don't understand the title.
23:08 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: What is the title of the BZ ticket asking them to do
23:08 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: It was reported in August.
23:08 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: Do you understand what "refactor" means?
23:08 < Charmlet> Not in code terms...
23:09 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: Refactoring code is when you take existing code and alter how it's written for one reason or another
23:10 < {soap|bed}> ♥♥♥
23:10 < dtm> the general reason is to make it not suck!
23:10 < GorillaWarfare> In this case, it's to work the VE plugin for Cite into the Cite extension so that it will work with the VE
23:10 -!- SigmaWP [~coalball@Wikipedia/Lowercase-Sigma] has joined #wikipedia-en
23:10 < D_> Ah, optimism
23:10 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: so it's basically asking them the same thing they've confirmed MORE RECENTLY they won't do?
23:10 < dtm> to make it not suck, usually due to its origins in hackery, kludgery, and quick fixes!
23:10 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: When exactly have they said "we won't work on references"?
23:11 < dtm> wikipedia has good articles about code refactoring and code smell lol
23:11 -!- Gfoley4 [~Gfoley4@wikipedia/Gfoley4] has joined #wikipedia-en
23:11 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: gah, we've been through this.
23:11 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: Right. And yet somehow you still came out of the discussion thinking they're not going to make any improvements to the citations?
23:12 < Charmlet> They said it's too enwiki specific.
23:12 < Charmlet> I can quote that shit.
23:12 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: No, they said that citation _templates_ are too enwiki specific
23:12 < GorillaWarfare> There is a huge difference
23:12 < Charmlet> So you're saying theres some other way to improve the citations?
23:12 < Charmlet> #seemslegit
23:13 < dtm> D_: so what have you been up to lately?  now that you're here, i realize that i've missed you!
23:13 < Gfoley4> hashtags don't work in IRC
23:13 < D_> Oh, you know, certainly not anything illegal
23:13 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: You think that citation templates are the only way to make a good citation?
23:13 < dtm> D_: absolutely
23:13 < Charmlet> Gfoley4: they do actually, but they're links
23:13 < D_> To channels
23:13 < D_> There is a #yolo channel
23:13 < Gfoley4> well yes
23:14 < dtm> D_: oic
23:14 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: I think the reftoolbar is the only way to make an easy one with all the things in it someone needs to verify for a newbie.
23:14 < Charmlet> Gfoley4: #you #just #got #b #u #r #n #e #d
23:14 < Gfoley4> damn
23:14 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: So, say the VE had a popup that looked just like the RefTools one, that created the formatted text without the use of a template. That's not a good solution?
23:15 < Charmlet> No, that's a good citation.
23:15 < Charmlet> The reftoolbar wouldn't *HAVE* to use templates.
23:15 < Charmlet> But it's the easiest way to do it.
23:15 < GorillaWarfare> It's the easiest way if you're editing enwiki.
23:15 < Charmlet> otherwise a change would produce inconsistency.
23:15 < GabrielF> we should definitely try to standardize citations so that the data is structured
23:15 < GorillaWarfare> But if you're creating a product that's supposed to work cross-wiki, then what?
23:15 < Charmlet> (and es:wiki among others)
23:16 < D_> Then you make it modular enough that you can make it work cross-wiki
23:16 < D_> I suppose then it doesn't fall to the people working on VE to incorporate some sort of a ref template functionality, though
23:17 < GorillaWarfare> D_: Right. And mass-creation of templates on any wiki that wants nice cites is, IMO, not a good solution.
23:17 < D_> What I'm saying is, there needs to be a way to write a reftoolbar equivalent for VE
23:18 < D_> But I don't know the first thing about VE, so I don't know how viable that is
23:18 < GorillaWarfare> D_: I agree, and I think they are working on finding a good solution.
23:19 < TeeTylerToe> Imagine code is a black box, things that come into the black box are called input, and things that go out of the box are output.  Refactoring code is changing the black box and making it better, but keeping the input and output the same.  Refactoring is rewriting something to do the same thing...  just faster, and better
23:19 < GabrielF> *sigh* we're citing an author as last name Board, first name Editorial
23:20 < D_> I bet there's an automated tool involved in the process somewhere that did it, GabrielF

23:21 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: Anyway, feel free to continue angrily ranting about the VE. But until you actually start to contribute productively towards making it a better tool, don't expect anyone to take you seriously.
23:21 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: Have you seen the mountains of suggestions and bugs I've given them?
23:22 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: Probably not, what's your bugzilla name?
23:22 < Charmlet> GorillaWarfare: bugzilla is for sissys. I go to WP:VE/F
23:22 -!- closedmouth [mouthy@wikipedia/closedmouth] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
23:22 < GorillaWarfare> Charmlet: My point.
23:22 < GabrielF> if someone is creating these refs with an automated tool that scrapes the article website or whatever then they need to be smacked
23:23 < D_> Why? Automated tools are useful, as long as you pay attention and don't just blindly trust their output
23:23 -!- SigmaWP [~coalball@Wikipedia/Lowercase-Sigma] has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
23:23 < dtm> D_: :-[   waaaah.  i can't figure it out!  all i want to do is to separate the ==References== into subsections, like the film list was, but while using named references!
23:24  * IDoH agrees with D_
23:24 < GabrielF> well this person was not paying attention and blindly trusted the output
23:24 < dtm> D_: it does seem that the film list is doing that, and it's sometimes using multiple citations per named reference
23:25 < Charmlet> TeeTylerToe: oh hell no they better not leave the reference output be the same as it is in VE now.
23:25 < dtm> D_: like for example <ref group="#" name=kramer>
23:25 < Charmlet> dtm: there's also autogroups that change the numbering style :D
23:26 < dtm> D_: in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-grossing_films
23:26 < dtm> Charmlet: are you talking about the three reserved names, like lower-alpha or whatever
23:26 < Charmlet> dtm: yep :P
23:26 < Charmlet> dtm: I've been meaning to vandalise (cough) an article by changing that xD

23:32 < dtm> ok.  and i'll have to remember why THAT didn't work, once i switch it back to that.  ;)
23:35 < dtm> the film one doesn't have inline citations in the article for everything.
