Restoring pedialite[edit]

I will restore pedialite template using AWB, using dump enwiktionary-20140728-pages-articles.xml.

--DPMaid (talk) 18:52, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

The actual number of edits was around 2700; the remaining pages from the worklist still used "pedialite".

Example diff: diff

Prevalence of the competing markups obtained from the dump from Windows command line:

  • 'find /c "{{pedialite" enwiktionary-20140728-pages-articles.xml' yields 12980 hits.
  • 'find /c "{{projectlink|wikipedia" enwiktionary-20140728-pages-articles.xml' yields 1 hit. Yes, only 1 hit.
  • 'find /c "{{projectlink|pedia" enwiktionary-20140728-pages-articles.xml' yields 601 hits.
  • 'find /c "{{projectlink" enwiktionary-20140728-pages-articles.xml' yields 857 hits.

Restoring Czech rhyme pages[edit]

I have restored Czech rhyme pages to their state before a run by MewBot from the beginning of September 2014. The MewBot run was probably undiscussed, as is their habit.

Some characteristics:

  • Technology: AWB
  • Number of replacements: over 1300
  • Replacement:
    • Restore the top line to read "[[Wiktionary:Rhymes|Rhymes]] > [[Rhymes:Czech|Czech]]".
    • Place Category:Czech rhymes at the bottom
  • Consequence: the rhyme pages are no longer categoried into rhyme subcategories. I oppose rhyme subcategories.
  • Example edit: diff

This DPMaid run restored the pages to status quo ante.

Adding Polish external links[edit]

I added Polish external links to between 1000 and 2000 pages. I first started alphabetically and then by a frequency list. To add an external link, I would open a command URL that uses User:DPMaid/common.js.

The external link is to a PWN dictionary page, which has multiple dictionaries and corpus search results; overall looks quite neat.

I only added links to pages for which the target page had dictionary results. To do that, I run the candidate term list through the following filter:

import sys, urllib, httplib, re
# Take a list of Polish terms and output only those that are found in Polish dictionaries online
for term in open(sys.argv[1]):
  term = term.rstrip()
  termURL = term
  # Assumption: the input encoding is UTF-8
  url="" + termURL + ".html"
  notFound = False
  dictPolishFound = False
  for line in urllib.urlopen(url):
    if "Nie znaleziono" in line:
      notFound = True
    if".*<span class=.entry-head-title.>S..?ownik j..?zyka polskiego.*",line):
      dictPolishFound = True
    if".*<span class=.entry-head-title.>Wielki s..?ownik ortograficzny.*",line):
      dictPolishFound = True
    if".*<span class=.entry-head-title.>Wielki s..?ownik W. Doroszewskiego.*",line):
      dictPolishFound = True
  if not notFound and dictPolishFound:
    print term
    print >> sys.stderr, "Not found in PWN: " + term

Moving Wikipedia box and images into English language section[edit]

I have moved Wikipedia box from above the English language section into that section.

  • Technology: WT:AWB
  • Search term: {{wikipedia}}\n==English==
  • Replacement term: ==English==\n{{wikipedia}}
  • Number of edits: 2018
  • Example edit: diff
  • Edit summary: Move WP box into English language section

--DPMaid (talk) 12:07, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

I have, furthermore, moved images from above the English language section into that section.

  • Technology: WT:AWB
  • Search term: (\[\[(File|Image):.*\]\])[\n ]*==English==
  • Replacement term: ==English==\n$1
  • Number of edits: 385
  • Example edit: diff
  • Edit summary: Move image into English language section
  • Note: I sometimes added more edits manually.

--DPMaid (talk) 13:12, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

A follow-up on the 1st step, to catch e.g. "{{wikipedia|dab=digit}}":

  • Search term: ({{wikipedia\|[^}]*}})[\n ]*==English==
  • Replacement term: ==English==\n$1
  • Number of edits: 777
  • Example edit: diff

To put these numbers in perspective:

  • Search for ==English==[\n ]*{{wikipedia found 30093 items
  • Search for ==English==[^=]*\[\[(File|Image) found 7282 items

Adding Slovak external links[edit]

I added over 250 external links for Slovak entries:

I am trying to figure out how to query web site using Python to tell me whether the target page exists, doing that for a list of pages that have a Slovak lemma and are missing Slovak enternal links. For some reasons, I am getting weird results for URLs likešpiračná+teória. I expect to get a page containing "nič nebolo nájdene", but I get some other page instead such as that for "čo". Maybe later. --DPMaid (talk) 16:25, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

I added over 1000 external links to Slovak entries:

  • I proceeded as above, using command URLs that take advantage of User:DPMaid/common.js.
  • I manually checked presence of entries in
  • I achieved rather high degree of coverage. There are now about 200 Slovak lemma entries with no external link to, out of 2545 Slovak lemma entries.
  • I used the following little Excel VBA, having "Yes", "Y", or "y" in the third column to indicate presence in the dictionaries:
Sub SubmitYeses()
  For Row = 2 To 300
    If Cells(Row, 3) = "Yes" Or Cells(Row, 3) = "Y" Or Cells(Row, 3) = "y" Then
      addr = "" & Cells(Row, 1) & _
      ActiveWorkbook.FollowHyperlink Address:=addr
      Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:06"))
    End If
End Sub

Adding Czech external links[edit]

I added external links to {{R:PSJC}}, {{R:SSJC}}, and sometimes {{R:KNLA}} to over 800 Czech entries. I went by a frequency list; many more can be added. I used the same technique as in #Adding Slovak external links; I updated User:DPMaid/common.js to support Czech. I checked the presence of terms in PSJC and SSJC by automatically quering the dicts online. --DPMaid (talk) 14:02, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

I expanded a little less than 1500 additional Czech entries with external links. All links were checked to have targets via a run of a Python script before the adding began, although there was a hiccup during the checking that I had to correct. --DPMaid (talk) 23:13, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Adding Romanian external links[edit]

I added 100 external links to {{R:DEX}}.

--DPMaid (talk) 21:56, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Adding Turkish external links[edit]

I added over 50 external links to {{R:TDK}}, after creating the template.
