Category talk:Language templates with no text displayed

Return to "Language templates with no text displayed" page.

More subcategoriesEdit

We currently have subcategories for en, fr, de and nl of which the two last ones could be emptied in a big effort. Category:Language templates with no text displayed with currently 12,000 files is too big to work efficiently using scripts such as VisualFileChange or pywikipedia. I suggest the creation of a few additional subcategories, namely the ones with most transclusions: es, it, ja, pl, ru, zh. Firstly, if a file is in such a subcategory it is known more precisely what needs to be fixed. Secondly, we may get help by Commons users of those languages. --Leyo 13:13, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

✓ Done. However one might expect few days or even weeks for those categories to fill up. --Jarekt (talk) 16:42, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the agreement and implementation. Yes, this will probably be the case. To speed up all files in Category:Language templates with no text displayed might be touched by a bot. --Leyo 17:03, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Less subcategoriesEdit

Can we get rid of the subcategories now. Or keep only 4-5 most common ones? --Jarekt (talk) 03:45, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

There seem to be still many legacy cases around (examples 1, 2 that were in the category today, but they have not been edited for > 1 year). When a template that is transcluded to thousands of file pages is changed next time, there might be many files in the (sub)category/ies. I would prefer to keep them for a while. And I would prefer to keep the en and the de subcategories anyway. --Leyo 09:13, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
OK. --Jarekt (talk) 12:24, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
We might consider “the while” to be over. ;-) --Leyo 14:43, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
