Who's Who article names[edit]

Hi, per WS:STYLE the article names in the Who's Who should be in title case rather than all-caps. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 07:29, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

@Beeswaxcandle: Sorry I didn't know that. I'll fix it. Just want to make sure, do you mean I should move Who's Who in the Far East (June) 1906-7/ABE, Taizo to Who's Who in the Far East (June) 1906-7/Abe, Taizo? Besides, should the names in the header section on each page also be in title case? --Stevenliuyi (talk) 07:37, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
Yes, to the second question. How many articles have already been created that will need moving? If it's only a few, then you can move them and tag the redirects for speedy deletion. But if there are a lot, then make a Bot request at WS:BOTR to get them moved. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 08:38, 6 May 2021 (UTC)
@Beeswaxcandle: Thanks for the information. I've already made a request at WS:BOTR. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 08:59, 6 May 2021 (UTC)

Eminent Chinese, thanks and edit filter note[edit]

Hi! Thanks for your work on Eminent Chinese: I'm glad someone can read the Chinese in those scans, because I struggle hugely!

Just FYI, I have adjusted the settings for the vandalism filter, since "Fukien" and "Fukushima" were setting it off. You shouldn't get your edits flagged so often now! Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 12:39, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

@Inductiveload: Thank you! Besides, the templates you set up are really helpful. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 22:30, 10 May 2021 (UTC)

Works templates for Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Period[edit]

Hi. For works like this, I have been looking to move away from direct use of {{header}} and instead utilising specific works template. We also set up work specific linking templates for internal (short and long) linking


and typically we will throw in redirected shortened forms for ease of use. Ease of use, uniformity, and ease of updates all flow, and categorisation, etc. It will also more neatly allow for data migration to Wikidata as we have easier parameters for something like WD Harvest tool.

Happy to set these up, and would think that I would we would have

  • Template:Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Period
    • redirect Template:ECCP
  • Template:Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Period lkpl
    • redirect Template:ECCP lkpl
  • Template:Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Period link
    • redirect Template:ECCP link

I also have a script that will do existing uses to the template, so happy to bot those whilst you continue on your other work. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:31, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I see that some of the linking templates are already in place. Sweet. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:35, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Yes, User:Inductiveload already set up {{ECCP lkpl}} and {{ECCP link}} a while ago. It would be nice if there is {{ECCP}} to replace {{header}}. However, since I'm new and not very familiar with the practices here, I'm not feeling very comfortable creating the template myself. So it will be really apperiated if there is any help. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 02:50, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
Have a look at special:permalink/11270662 and tell me if you are content, or changes you would like. I have used push to Layout 2, though that can be your preference. Template:Eminent Chinese of the Ch'ing Periodbillinghurst sDrewth 04:13, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Thank you, it looks great! --Stevenliuyi (talk) 04:41, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
Updated documentation. I would suggest that you put a defaultsort into future transclusions, typically we will do {{DEFAULTSORT:{{SUBPAGENAME}}}} so they sort. Guessing that we don't need to do the European name-type of name swap. I will be applying that to the template replacement that I am about to do. Having this helps with any further categorisation that is wished to be underaken on the subpages. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:20, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I have been through and converted the previous biographical subpages to use {{ECCP}}. I have also created numbers of the contributors' author pages where I was reasonably comfortable that I had the right author. I have only added one biography per pages as part of that process and will leave the remainder of bio additions to you. I will pick through some of the other author red links and look to convert them, though if there are further authors that you would like author pages setup, then feel welcome to ping me. Some of the Chinese names with initials only were not something I was confident I could correctly identify. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:15, 11 May 2021 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Thank you! I've tried to set up some author pages myself (Author:Kwang Tsing Wu, Author:Li Man-kuei) but not sure if I did it correctly. --Stevenliuyi (talk) 13:45, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
All good smiley. Generally every author page created will be checked for consistency by someone with a good background in Author pages. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:56, 11 May 2021 (UTC)
