I'm helping for the harvesting and adding these data Amir (talk) 21:47, 26 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]
┌────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘ @Ladsgroup: I was unable to find the related edits. Could I (and anyone else who wants to see) please have a direct link to them? HazardSJ 00:12, 30 December 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ladsgroup: Having looked at a few, this is the 2013 value (the table contains none for 2014), and this sets the value as 14,196,912,534±1 (whereas the table says 14,196,912,535, so why not set 14,196,912,535±1?). HazardSJ 02:05, 3 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Hazard-SJ: Hey, Thanks for the review. For first one, it was a bug in parsing values the only affected countries are:
Egypt, Arab Rep.
Micronesia, Fed. Sts.
Hong Kong SAR, China
Iran, Islamic Rep.
Macao SAR, China
Korea, Dem. Rep.
Congo, Dem. Rep.
It's fixed now. The other thing is that. In their API it's saved as 14,196,912,534.6. I cut the decimal part, the GUI rounded it. I changed it to rounding for sake of consistency. The question is whether we want to fix made edits or not. Best Amir (talk) 15:31, 3 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ladsgroup: Thanks for the update, but do we even need to round? Why not just use the exact value? Also, for the ones with the decimal simply cut off, strictly speaking they're technically still correct (thanks to the ±1), but if it's not too much work it would probably be nice to have them set to a more accurate value. Anyways, that aside, is that other account still going to be created, or will this task be assigned to Dexbot? Also, are you going to import the data for multiple years, or just the most recent? I think it might be useful to set the preferred rank to the most recent nominal GDP if so. HazardSJ 18:44, 3 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Hazard-SJ: GDP of country definitely has way more error than 10 cents. I think it's safe to keep it around 1 dollar. About the bot account. I'm not sure. Do you think we should make another one, switching between accounts is not easy for me. Lastly, I'll not import multiple years now, let's finish recent year values and then I start importing two or three more years (definitely I use preferred rank in that case) and see how it goes :) Amir (talk) 11:32, 5 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ladsgroup: That's rounding is fine, then. Regarding the multiple years, that's also fine. Regarding the bot account, that's up to you, it would just be nice to know what account this will be approved for (and consequently if a bot flag would be needed). I'm okay with approving this, just need that last bit of information :) HazardSJ 21:10, 7 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not going to approve a non-existent bot account. It is not even technically possible.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:31, 7 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, that's why I said he needs to let us know which account will be used. As far as I see, that's the only thing we're waiting for. HazardSJ 04:46, 8 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think that would be good if we use Dexbot account for this action since it's easier to work Amir (talk) 17:28, 8 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
