Hey. I forget how to add votes to the Timeline. Please add this one. I see no problem with inventing words in the vote. --Gente como tú (talk) 15:49, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

  Done. But it's really easy, just edit that box that pops up in your watchlist. —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:43, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

Proto-Indo-European redlinksEdit

In 2016, you deleted Category:Proto-Indo-European redlinks. What was your reason for doing so? I am a bit confused by an explanation you gave in User talk:Daniel Carrero/2016#Redlinks categories. Was the rationale for deleting the PIE category the same, i.e. because you were “testing Module:redlink category and Template:redlink category to see if it was possible to populate all redlinks categories at once”? (Did you create it?) And, if so, why did you delete this category but keep certain others?  — J​as​p​e​t 01:57, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

@Jaspet: The answer is this: Yes, I created and later deleted the PIE redlinks category.
Currently, we only have redlinks categories for a few languages -- see Category:Redlinks by language. Anyone can edit Template:redlink category and thus change which languages have redlinks enabled, including you or me. (unless there's some template protection, in which case people can ask an admin to do it)
Presumably, we should really only enable redlinks categories for a handful of languages when we are actually going to work with these categories. Ideally, I would like to keep redlinks categories for all languages. That's why at some point I really did enable redlinks categories for all languages, to see if that would work. But I quickly discovered that it's a strain on the server and it causes numerous entries to have module errors. I created and deleted the PIE redlinks category, and also Category:Chinese redlinks and others. Feel free to recreate the PIE category if you are going to work with it. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 02:30, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
Ah, I get it now. Thank you :)  — J​as​p​e​t 02:37, 22 January 2018 (UTC)
@Jaspet: You're welcome. :) --Daniel Carrero (talk) 02:38, 22 January 2018 (UTC)

Template ws and the headword as synonym to itselfEdit

{{ws}} seems to generate "[WS]" even when the headword is identical to the page name. Thus, in WS:aircraft, the word "aircraft" in Synonyms section has a little "[WS]" to the right of it, in boldface.

As far as I remember, the template did not used to do that. Would you be able to change the behavior back? --Dan Polansky (talk) 14:11, 3 February 2018 (UTC)

@Dan Polansky: I believe it's fixed now. The problem was that the template was specifically testing for the existence of "Wikisaurus:aircraft" as opposed to "Thesaurus:aircraft". --Daniel Carrero (talk) 14:15, 3 February 2018 (UTC)
