Why don't we link these sources to their appropriate pages? Intelligence4 (talk) 01:00, 11 July 2015 (CEST)


hah, wow, more than a year later.... anyway, why don't we put the abbreviation for these sources with them too? Intelligence4 (talk) 07:27, 15 December 2016 (CET)

Go for it. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 23:38, 15 December 2016 (CET)

Lego message boards deletion

Wasn't really sure where else to post this since it's about our sourcing... but apparently all the stuff on the lego message boards is going to be deleted come the end of february. since we source so many things greg said by simply linking to the message boards, is there a way we can archive stuff before it all gets taken down? Intelligence4 (talk) 19:54, 6 January 2017 (CET)

We should find the "webarchives" versions of the posts before the LMB is deleted. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 19:59, 6 January 2017 (CET)
I believe we should archive all the pages, not singular posts (it would take too much time). At least, that's what I'm doing. As of now, I've archived the first 50 pages of CwGF.
--OnionShark 21:23, 6 January 2017 (CET)
Every page is already backed up on archive.org, we just need to update the links as appropriate. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 09:24, 7 January 2017 (CET)
No, there are many pages wich have not been archived.
--OnionShark 12:20, 7 January 2017 (CET)

I ran a script that should have archived them all, could you give an example page? I can run it again. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 18:48, 7 January 2017 (CET)

I checked some random pages and they weren't archived, 272, 329, 822 and 823.
--OnionShark 20:18, 7 January 2017 (CET)
Eh, you checked these pages in different archived days? If you didn't, you need to. Like when I added the archived comics' links to the articles, I should count with the days. Like the Ignition comics. Most of them have an archive link for December 6, but one of them doesn't have for Dec 6. just for Dec 11. -- Surel-Nuva (Talk) 20:27, 7 January 2017 (CET)
Sorry, but I don't understand what you're talking about. I just copy&pasted the links to WA's search bar and I got a page that said "Wayback Machine doesn't have that archived" and "this page is available on the web." Could you please explain what you're saying? Thanks =)
--OnionShark 20:40, 7 January 2017 (CET)


Check the Ignition Comics. Comics: 6-11's archive date is " 6 December 2008". Comic 12's archive date is "11 December 2008". Comics: 13-15's archive date is "6 December 2008". The Comic 12 doesn't have an archived page with the "6 December 2008" date, like the other comics, but have with the "11 December 2008" as wall as the "5 April 2008", "4 June 2008", and "12 September 2008" dates. --Surel-Nuva (Talk) 22:56, 7 January 2017 (CET)
I know, but when you put a link into the search bar, it already shows you all the times it was archived, so I'm not getting your point.
--OnionShark 23:47, 7 January 2017 (CET)

@OnionShark All those pages are archived: 272, 329, 822, 823. When I first searched for 822, archive.org claimed it didn't have an archive, but the archive was accessible from a link on page 823's archive. A few minutes later, the archive shows up as expected when you search for it. So I think archive.org did collect all the archives when I ran the script, but my guess is it won't process them for searching until someone actually runs a search. But as long as the pages are archived, we should be all good. -- Morris the Mata Nui Cow (talk) 00:18, 8 January 2017 (CET)
