Hello!

Request: description updating

A lot of the 'Product Description' sections in the various parts pages are outdated, because they don't get automatically updated (though they do seem to be added automatically during the initial page creation). For example, when the [Radial Engine Body] was renamed to "Engine Pre-cooler" in 1.0, its description changed, but it wasn't updated by BobBot. I was hoping a script could be added to pull the updated descriptions from the "description = " entries in the part configuration files.— Preceding unsigned comment added by VariousMetals (talkcontribs) 13:42, 11 May 2015‎ (UTC)

The problem is to reliably determine the place on the page where the bot can insert the description. — xZise [talk] 14:01, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Don't all of the parts pages already have isolated, standardized "Product Description" sections? VariousMetals (talk) 15:09, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Well … LV-N "Nerv" Atomic Rocket Motor#Product description. But maybe I'm able to make something work. — xZise [talk] 23:56, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Okay I've run a script and there might be some problems but Special:Contributions/BobBot shows the contributions. Most are marginal changes (if at all) and those seem fine. But sometimes (like in http://wiki.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?title=Probodobodyne_OKTO2&diff=next&oldid=61691 ) it fails because it wasn't in the usual style as it had the old description first. You can also see another issue which makes that complicated is when there is markup as the bot then thinks the text has changed although it hasn't. — xZise [talk] 11:10, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm going to fix some of them (you can determine those by looking at the contributions as they don't have the (current) at the end). — xZise [talk] 11:12, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Okay all pages done. I'll integrate the code into my 'update' script which I usually run after a update. — xZise [talk] 14:05, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. Hopefully that'll save a bit of time in the future. VariousMetals (talk) 16:14, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Hey, I'm xZise (yes with a lowercase x) and learned most of the wiki syntax stuff in the official Wikipedia where you can find too. I'm an admin/sysop, so if you want to delete/moved something I most certainly can help you out. There is also the bot BobBot in preparation which will work for me.

Styleguide

Some might ask why I edited their article after they edited them: I usually look through the Special:RecentChanges and follow those three rules:

  • The information must be factual
  • It's written from a third person's view point (basically no “you”, but I except this rule for tutorials)
  • Only proper names are written with capitalisation, similar to the English Wikipedia. This includes removing capitalisation in page and section titles.

I use different prefixes to show the type of difference in the summary:

  • ! – fix
  • * – change
  • + – addition

Pages to delete

The following pages should be deleted for example because they are named incorrectly. But because they are still referenced, they can't be deleted:

No more internal references but might still be referenced externally:

No more references (should be actually deleted?):

Badly named pages:

Blacklist and Greylist

Following users have been posting spam pages only.

  • None at the moment

There is one user who looks like a troller. I'll keep an eye on the one: Lavameh (talk·contribs·abuse log) and Magrillico man (talk·contribs·man abuse log)

And I really don't know what these users are about. They only created a user page:

Why enforce part names

One nice example: click on it and then tell me if you'd get to the slanted version of the part (with only looking at the page) and if the link in here would go to the same page as the page in the version before. You might be surprised (or not because you've read this here).

Misc

Maybe take a look at my atmospheric height analysis.

New celestial body infobox

Because the current infobox for celestial bodies, {{Infobox/Body}}, is pretty difficult to understand, I'm trying to develop an advanced version, using Lua modules. Currently this wiki does not support modules, so I'm testing it on the German Wikipedia.

The data for each body is in a /Param subpage. For example in Kerbin/Param are the values for Kerbin, but the editor doesn't see anything. See the development version, that shows the table simply no matter what values are there.

The {{Body data}} template then parses this using a separate module, which isn't implemented yet. The infobox itself then uses the BodyData module which parses the parameters and calculates the rest. Because there are some values required multiple times they can easily be buffered and reused. For example both sidereal and solar days need to be calculated twice. Once to show the seconds and then to show the time splitted in days, hours, minutes and so on. This module isn't implemented yet either., could you run the update job to update the part config files for KSP 1.4.2? It seems like the bot has not updated them since 1.0. I also fixed the link for the git repository. Tidal Stream (talk) 17:27, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
