KmWiki

Wikispaces, which kmwiki was hosted on, has been shut down for quite a while. It also appears the site was dead for several years at this point and there is a fairly minimal amount of links to it. A bit of searching yielded no successor sites (it doesn't appear that this can be updated); on another hand, this could conflict with the Khmer Wikipedia link (km).

None of the four supposed links are even useful. The Spanish pages and the Marc Kupper page on en.wikipedia are lists of interwikis. The Legoktm page is actually trying to link to km.wikipedia. So, I think it should be perfectly safe to remove. PiRSquared17 (talk) 23:47, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
Yes check.svg removed, though not phab'd  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:11, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

ISSN redirects to HTTPS

ISSN: https://www.worldcat.org/issn/$1 issn:0021-6925

Note: Some ISSN URLs, such as http://www.worldcat.org/issn/0021-6925, generate a 301 redirect to an HTTPS URL that generates a 303 redirect to another HTTPS URL. At the same time, there are other ISSN URLs, such as http://www.worldcat.org/issn/1810-9047, that only generate a 301 redirect to an HTTPS URL. The change specified above should cover both situations. --Elegie (talk) 09:56, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

HTTPS for freedomdefined

Please update freedomdefined: to https://freedomdefined.org/$1 to use encrypted connection. It has a three-month Let’s Encrypt certificate valid from last Sunday, so it’s a fast catch! :) Hopefully they configured the update script correctly and it will still work in May. —Tacsipacsi (talk) 20:54, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

New tool for finding potential interwiki conflicts

@Billinghurst: (because you seem to be the de facto interwiki map guy nowadays)

Comment Comment I would prefer not to be, and have tried to not be.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:53, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

I just created a new tool, toollabs:pirsquared/iwconflict.php, which can be used to determine whether a proposed interwiki link conflicts with any existing page titles and namespace names/aliases. (It has exactly as much charmful CSS as my previous tool.) It takes a long time but I think it works. It should handle edge cases but I don't want to go into details. For example, let's say someone proposed making a new interwiki called "R" and we only wanted to check itwiki and metawiki (because checking all wikis takes a few minutes). Then you can see the list of conflicts here. Another example: [1]. PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:13, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

It should be noted that a namespace conflict isn't necessarily a dealbreaker. For instance, the interwiki "Wikipedia" included in the map conflicts with the project namespace on enwiki (and a bunch of others). It just means you won't be able to access the interwiki on those projects. PiRSquared17 (talk) 02:25, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
