Phase III Dark Trooper[edit source]

Hey PING, Your recent edit on the Phase III Dark Trooper went a little sideways. When you edited "Behind the Scenes" section, you mislinked the Imperial sentry droid, It led to a Legends page. Just be sure to check where the link goes. Welcome to Wookiepedia! Happy Editing! May The Force Be With You! Supreme Commander Raxus (talk) 13:55, February 18, 2019 (UTC)User:SupremeCommanderRaxus

Oh, my. Articles separated by case sensitivity? That's confusing! Most wikis I've seen use parentheses (ISD (Astromech) | ISD (Security)) to clearly disambiguate articles, I certainly couldn't tell from the autocomplete feature that I thought was bugging out.--PlNG (talk) 20:28, February 18, 2019 (UTC)

Special:Revision[edit source]

Hello! Just wanted to point out to you that your recent edit regarding the use of Special:Revision has led to redlinks here. Any idea why? Imperators II(Talk) 19:21, December 3, 2019 (UTC)

I misremembered. :forehead slap: It's Special:PermanentLink/7197677 --PlNG (talk) 19:55, December 3, 2019 (UTC)

I can complete your request on WP:BR, but I'm wondering how you compiled such a list without simply removing the template on each article yourself? Tommy Imperial Emblem.svg Macaroni 18:22, January 28, 2020 (UTC)

I did an API query for the list of pages in the template supplied category, then I processed the pages from API query result by using a JavaScript fetch of the rendered pages without the FANDOM wiki wrapper (?action=render). This returns straight HTML text that can be passed to the browser's DOMParser to construct the DOM virtually. Then I did querySelectorAll("a.new").length thus counting the number of nodes with the redlink class. I can provide the JavaScript if you wish to review it.--PlNG (talk) 21:39, January 28, 2020 (UTC)

  • Oh awesome. No that's fine thanks, you seem to know what you're doing, I was just curious how you got those results. All done now. Tommy Imperial Emblem.svg Macaroni 15:31, January 29, 2020 (UTC)
