Hey Jayne, I hope you are doing fine! I noticed that at the bottom of wikiHow namespace pages, the number of views to the page are clearly off. I wanted to know how many times the meetups page has been viewed; it only said twice, and I thought that is completely inaccurate. This happens on most or all wikiHow namespace pages, while it used to work/update several years ago. There must be a glitch or something.

P.S. I would love to attend a meetup (or visit the wikiHaus) someday, I can't this year even if you reschedule it. Hopefully things work out for you all! And I might have more time on wikiHow because my two classes have been changed to online for the rest of the semester.?:)

Just wanted to report a strange anomaly I found while processing double redirects. See edit #1 vs edit #2. First edit fixed the double redirect but didn't trigger the new one... second edit somehow "fixed" the non-triggering issue without making any changes...? Only thing I've done differently is retype the entire syntax by hand instead of copy/pasting the target title to change the internal link itself (the way I've always done it). Huh. #imstumped

Jayne, Lyft finally listened. However, there's a question and answer pair about there being no dark mode that is no longer true. I can't find it in the Complete a Trip in Lyft Driver article. Unsure where I spotted and answered it originally. If you spot it in some of the others, please remove both the question and answer pair. The answer (someplace) is outdated now.

Hey Jayne, Recently R2_d2000 had requested a new article, which after researching, I approved from the Manage Suggested Topics tool. However, it's been on my mind to create and this morning I began it (less than 24 hours later), and while I think I got what I knew about the mobile tool Unit Guardian, can you add more information (such as how many it takes to approve or reject a conversion) or other missed details? You can find the article here.

Byankno1Chris said:

It's still a work in progress right now, but the current article I'm beginning is from a meetup-inspired how-to (that I could've used last year when I was almost stuck at Philadelphia). But it's coming along splendidly. There are still some fine points I need to express in Method 2, but I need to decide how I'm going to explain the route by walking from one terminal to the other - one terminal contains a set of stairs that the other doesn't, and the other has a set of two separate gate entries where the other doesn't. It all kind-of reflects on the reader's current location in respect to the article and what direction they are facing when reading it (if reading it at the airport itself): Travel Between Terminals A and F at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)

There's still one more meetup-inspired guide (with a few tweaks) from 2014 meetup I'd like to get out there, but right now, coming to a grinding halt with these existing problems to think about first.

Thanks for the note! We're doing okay-ish, all things considered (both on a national level and on a family level). Hope y'all are doing okay as well?

Also, let me jump straight into a bit of a complaint: UnitGuardian doesn't seem to be doing a good job at doing conversions. See these examples of ill-fitting conversions (or just plain silly ones, like converting feet to meters when they're talking about the body part): [1] [2] [3] [4] [5].

Another problem is that sometimes only one conversion is applied, but nowhere else, which is a consistency issue (like here).

I know I'm a bit too invested in these unit conversions sometimes, but it still worries me that even conversions that are blatantly wrong (like converting feet to meters when they're talking about the body parts) manage to pass through both the unit guardian tool and RCP.

Hello Jayne,

During the Covid 19 lockdown, I have not been idle (well, maybe a little). Would you review my new article Create a Mini Makerspace? It was inspired by a conversation with librarians at branches of the Philadelphia Free Library who said they would love to have a makerspace in their libraries, but didn't have the room. And isn't it time for the browsers to recognize the word makerspace?

Hope you are well, and stay safe,

Ok. THe Philadelphia INternational article is now done with it's first good writing. NOw onto starting the one from the 2014 meetup (with updates provided thanks to the American Airlines app's maps, though my flights back then that provided this service was from its now defunct merging company US Airways).

Hey, I think I accidentally re-uploaded them to the site because the originals when I copied and pasted the link showed up as a different image in the article I took it from.

Sorry for the late response! They should be all tagged now. One thing, though - Make a Homemade Band Tshirt is spelled a bit funkily. Can we retitle that to change it to "Make a Homemade Band T Shirt" or something like that and then update the feed?

I'm doing okay-ish. Stressed out from world events, hence why I'm kind of lurking in the background rather than actively contributing... I'm immersing myself in YouTube, video games, and art projects. I hope you're doing all right!

I filled out Travel Between Portland International Airport's (PDX) Concourses to where I have knowledge of and some reference material.

Unless you know this airport in your travels, I don't expect you to help too much with figuring out what it's missing.

WikiaWangWikiaWang said:

Hi Jayne! I have a suggestion for wikiHow, and I didn't know where to post it, so I thought maybe I should leave it here. wikiHow doesn't have to implement this suggestion, but I sure think it would be a good addition.

To start with, I think there should be a new profile bade: Q&A Patroller. After all, patrolling Q&A is very important and is substantial to the quality and impression of people who view wikiHow. I believe that adding a 5th profile badge might be good, since after all, there are 2 tools that only Q&A Patrollers can access. I know this might not be important, but I still wanted to tell you. Thanks for even reading this! Have a nice weekend!

P.S. Where do I post suggestions? :D

Hello, I noticed that wikiHow Projects recently edited an article with an {{inuse}} tag on it here. While the edit was a maintenance edit, it could still cause an edit conflict if the user has a draft saved of the article. Is it possible that they could skip checking articles with an inuse tag on them, and come back to them latter? Or, if they do check articles that have the tags on them, could they put them on a list to come back to them latter instead of editing the article?

Quick question: can you consider adding "until $6" to the line that says "Your username or IP address has been blocked by $1" on MediaWiki:Blockedtext (i.e. change it to "Your username or IP address has been blocked until $6 by $1"? $6 corresponds to the expiry of a block set, and will be labeled as "infinite" for indefinite blocks, and it is one of the many things that a blocked user should know so they know when they can get back to making useful contributions. I remember when I was blocked for the first two times, I did not know when my block expired until I looked in the block logs, but even then, it is not good to see a good-faith contributor be driven away because they do not see when their block expires.

Thanks, Jayne, we're both fine :-) Both able to work from home so still managing to get some respite from each other ;-) I was pleased to be able to make some contributions yesterday ... obviously members of the community are using time at home effectively by keeping on top of the changes 'cos usually there's none of my 'usuals' available to fix (I struggle with the tools because they let me see lots of change necessary but only allow me to fix the one they've highlighted which leads to frustration for me!). How are you? Hope the new way of life isn't impacting too negatively for you and you're managing ok.
