Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Note to self and anyone else interested.

Category:Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania should it be a portal too? If yes, we really need a means to autopopulate (minor) portals so we do not have do lots of work in that space.

If it is not, we need to look to adapt {{authority control}} so it can be utilised with arbitrary access to WD so AC can be filled on such a page. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:26, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Move template data to WD

Category:Pages using authority control with parameters has pages with {{authority control}} data that should be housed on the WD page of the item. Look to set to utilise PLbot to move the data to WD, save some queries on its use and set up tracking. Need to be a good lad and set up fully-fledged maintenance pages. Oh for more time! — billinghurst sDrewth 06:31, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

header WP links and the use of main subject at WD

have a check to see that where we have (encyclopaedic) pages in main namespace that link wikipedia = through header, that these items at wikidata may or may not have "main subject" wikilink. Can or should we be pulling that link via WD to manage deleted and moved items, and also be prepared for any item that has a future wp link. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:35, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Category:Authors with missing death dates -> Category:Authors without death dates

explore making this change. They are not missing if they are not dead, so we should cater for both scenarios without confusing things. Only would be missing of the person is alive 130 years after death. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:43, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Contributing translator -> header template

(parking) See if we should plug in a parameter so something like Popular Science Monthly/Volume 3/September 1873/Hypnotism in Animals I can properly represent the translator. Otherwise we can have it as a note as we do for {{illustrator}}. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:38, 28 March 2018 (UTC)

my recent edit at Portal:Educational institutions of Europe. There is a Oxford portal but not a Cambridge one here in WS. I am the author of w:Cambridge Companions and w:Cambridge County Geographies I hope that eventually we have WP articles on every notable book series published by OX and CAM. But that is too much work for me alone, what I would like to propose that we create a new list of book series by these two press first (two articles) from which redlinks can be turned blue slowly. If they are public domain we can consider creating portals similar to Portal:Cambridge County Geographies. Ping @Charles Matthews: if they are interested.

My second request is to create a template similar in format and scope to Template:Rulers of India for the indexes of Froude’s History of England (there appears to be two more volume indexes not uploaded here yet). Also ping @Beeswaxcandle: as they have it in their to-do list. Solomon7968 (talk) 09:39, 22 January 2019 (UTC)

@Solomon7968:I paused on the Froude project because I couldn't find scans of Volumes 6 and 12 in the same edition as the other 10 volumes. At some point I do intend to find those two volumes and complete the proofread, there is just rather a lot on my plate at the moment in RL as well as multiple projects here. I'm not sure why you want a template in the Volumes field, what I have done there is sufficient and covers everything required. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 05:38, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
I thought you had forgotten about it and would appreciate if others would join in this effort. I have seen Billinghurst using templates frequently but if you are fine with not templating I am of course ok with that. FWIW I am reading the first volume of the series slowly along with Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall (both cover the same period). Have you read the book? Solomon7968 (talk) 06:21, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

And Foss, Edward (DNB00) needs to have an author page ASAP (from your booklist). Solomon7968 (talk) 13:03, 22 January 2019 (UTC)
