Renan Feitosa[edit]

Olá boa tarde, gostaria que me tirasse uma dúvida... Qual o modo estrutural que existe para atualizações na Wikipédia, além de atualizações feitas por pessoas que tem o cadastro para os conteúdos disponíveis, fundamentando minha dúvida que seria ter conhecimento se existe algum tipo de sistema que recebe ou busca atualizações dos conteúdos expostos aos internautas? Grato desde já por sua atenção, aguardo seu contato!

Admin activity tool[edit]

Thanks everyone for participating. With Freddy2001 volunteering to create the list by 1 Oct (we have already been in touch), this problem is solved. --MF-W 01:03, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

I was hoping it could be generalized and used in other communities, too. Seems it's going to be Meta-specific. (Well, that's fine too.) — regards, Revi 01:07, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
I guess for such specific requirements, it makes more sense to write a script in each case than some kind of tool. Especially because the data are only required on 2 dates per year. --MF-W 01:26, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
How's it going? --Base (talk) 11:09, 1 October 2017 (UTC)

You will need to go to python.org and follow the instructions there. If you need any further help please feel free to reply here and someone will be around to help! Zppix (talk) 23:27, 3 October 2017 (UTC)
Fixed that topic for you. Please don't use completely uninformative topics like that in the future. EddieGP (talk) 09:53, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

How do I force a magic word-based transclusion instead of a template parameter?[edit]

{{User talk:{{PAGENAME}}}} gives a different magic word than {{{{PAGENAME}}/stuff}} -- the problem is that a template parameter (three {'s) seems to have higher parameter than a magic word (two {'s), probably because the parser just reads left to right and never comes back. Anyway, how can I force the transclusion -- how do I tell the parser that it's not a template parameter? Banaticus (talk) 20:51, 13 October 2017 (UTC)

{{User talk: {{PAGENAME}} }} should work, use spaces. Or better still {{ {{TALKPAGENAME}} }}. --Base (talk) 20:57, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
Got it, AntiComposite in IRC suggested {{:{{PAGENAME}}/stuff}} instead of {{{{PAGENAME}}/stuff}} and that solved the problem I was having. :) Banaticus (talk) 21:02, 13 October 2017 (UTC)
