  • Hey CzechOut!

    Sorry for the delay, but I was wondering if you had the time to change over the next lot of infoboxes on this wiki to their newer counterparts some time in the near future. This time, it is the infoboxes for episode pages (links to old and new infoboxes). These should be relatively easy compared to the last lot and are only on 36 pages. The code from and to is below as before, taken from the infoboxes' respective documentation:

    Old New
    {{Episode
    |image =
    |caption =
    |epname =
    |epnumber =
    |lvlnumbers =
    |levels =
    |epcolour =
    |epsetting = 
    }}
    
    {{infobox episode
     | banner      = 
     | image       = 
     | episode     = 
     | world       = 
     | levels      = 
     | characters  = 
     | champion    = 
     | new         = 
     | released    = 
     | previous    = 
     | next        = 
    }}

    Where "epnumber" is changed to simply "episode". Otherwise values with the same names are kept, and the rest removed.

    An example of the two in use again for comparison like before with the old infobox taken directly from a page and the new fields in the new infobox left blank:

    Old New
    {{Episode
    ||image = [[File:Candy_Town.png|300px]]
    |caption = Candy Town
    |epname = Candy Town
    |epnumber = 1
    |lvlnumbers = 10
    |epcolour = Pink|name = Candy Town
    |levels = 1 - 10
    |epsetting = Unknown}}
    
    {{infobox episode
     | banner      = 
     | image       = Candy Town.png
     | episode     = 1
     | world       = 
     | levels      = 1-10
     | characters  = 
     | champion    = 
     | new         =
     | released    =
     | previous    = 
     | next        = 
    }}
    

    I notice that in this example above even there is the problem of having multiple parameters on one line, which you said was a difficulty with the last infobox switch. I dunno if this is a stupid suggestion since I'm only just starting to learn regex, but could the situation above with the different parameters on the same line be dealt with by identifying and deleting:

    |epcolour =[^|]*
    

    That as far as I know would delete anything up until the next pipe, regardless if the next pipe is on the same or the next line. If it won't work, then just forget I said anything.

    Anyway, I think that should be all the info I can give you if you want to help out. If any clarification is needed, just ask. There's no rush, but if you do have some time to make the switch, I and the rest of the users here would really appreciate it!

    Thanks in advanced!

    • Heya ;)

      Sorry you had to wait, but I had an actual deadline on another wiki that was fixed by the release date of a movie, so I had to put the brakes on this project until this week. I apologise for not keeping you in the loop.

      This proved, as I suspected from your initial request, slightly more complex than apparent, due to the inconsistent way people had filled out {{episode}}. It took two or three bot runs and even a bit of manual editing, because I wasn't able to find a replacement pattern that universally worked. Nevertheless, I think it's all in place now. Lemme know if you find differently.

      At the end of the day, the one thing I wasn't able to do was to organise the variables in the order you specified. Because people had filled out {{episode}} with variables all over the place, the task of reordering them, while not strictly impossible, would require more time than I have to give. However, for ease of data entry — if not later reading — it makes a kind of sense that the variables you need to fill out are all now located at the top of the variable list.

    • Thanks CzechOut! That's perfect! The parameter order doesn't really matter in the end. The main thing is it all displays right once published.

      Good luck on your other projects!

  • This is in regards to the TARDIS Data Core. I am a long-term user of this Wikia (about five years) and I am pretty dismayed to see the mock bureaucracy it has become. I was just blocked by an administrator called Shambala108 for attempting to fix an error that has been present since 2008 and has been made particularly egregious by the rise of Peter Capaldi - the Lucius Caecilius Iucundus page. The character introduces himself to the Doctor as Lobus Caecilius (spelling from http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00hzmlb) and is credited as simply Caecilius. The current name is speculation based upon the historical figure and his fictionalisation in the Cambridge Latin Course. This administrator thoughtlessly reverted my edits, even after I referred him to the sources and proceeded to block me for 24 hours. How can a Doctor Who fan become such a pig-headed apparatchik? A Wikia should not have every edit frozen by deliberation - that is not how they work. I never have felt that this is the Wikia that Doctor Who deserves but you have one of the largest Wikia audiences and you owe it to the fans to get things like this right.

    • I apologise that you've had to wait for an answer.  The whole Wikia network is having some issues right now that have made it hard to answer your question.  Please give me a few more minutes to figure out what's going on.

  • Hi CzechOut, I would like to personally thank you for taking your time in helping this wiki convert to the new infobox template. You and your bot saved us a lot of time and work implementing the new design into over 600 pages! We're all really grateful for your efforts :)
