Tiny suggestionEdit

Ciao Danny, On your personal page, you put a link to the creation of props that you have created. Don't you want to make a table replacing this link (on a new page for example)? The more numerous your contributions, the heavier the load and the longer the research time. I think a lot of people have already clicked on this link following your application. My warmest regards.  Eihel (talk) 08:24, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

I'd rather not need to maintain that table DannyS712 (talk) 13:40, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

DannyS712 publicEdit

I guess the account DannyS712 public is used by you on public computers for safety reasons? If so, perhaps you'd consider to add a user page stating this. Lymantria (talk) 12:29, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Yes, it is - its one of a bunch of alternative accounts I have that I should probably create user pages on meta for instead of on each wiki individually... for now   Done locally though DannyS712 (talk) 13:40, 2 December 2020 (UTC)
Now created on meta DannyS712 (talk) 16:09, 2 December 2020 (UTC)

Just to let you knowEdit

Request for checking username to find socksEdit

Hello Danny , could you please find username of previously deleted item by name Ray Blakney this month . Here is another item Q104553175 created by the user JayMK119 . Once I get the username of creator who created previously deleted item I can report it at WD:CHECK . It will be easy to keep a track of all further socks too Rockpeterson (talk) 14:23, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

I don't know how to do that (find previously deleted items by name), sorry DannyS712 (talk) 20:13, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Newbie needs to be pointed in the right direction.Edit

On https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/xj-xj6-xj8-xjr-x350-x358-28/obd-error-codes-241702/#post2339098 there is a proposal to create a knowledge base of OBD error codes. OBD (On Board Diagnostics) refers to a computer in cars made after 1996. While dealers have detailed systems, when a car is ten years old or older, the dealer is not interested in support, and the dealer shop cost for repairs is not commensurate with the car's value. Accordingly, forums arise where members share their knowledge. However, forums are a bad structure for collective knowledge.

The format used in Wikipedia is ideal for this type of collective knowledge, where one takes the source code for the screen, copies it into Wikipedia, and the basic structure is installed, for members to add their knowledge. However, Wikipedia will delete such a posting because it is not deemed an appropriate subject for an encyclopedia. It appears WikiData is an appropriate site, but I am unable to work out if its framework is similar to Wikipedia. If it requires I add each diagnostic code separately, it would take too long for what is a hobby. Following the tutorials was not much help, probably because I am intuitive learner.

Is WikiData the right tool, and if not, can you point me in the right direction?  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by X350X358 (talk • contribs) at 20:09, 11 January 2021 (UTC).

I don't think wikidata is the right tool, since it would require adding each code separately as its own item. Not sure what the right direction would be, sorry. --DannyS712 (talk) 00:09, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
