The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis[edit]

Thank you so much for fixing "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" season 1,2 and 3. Season 4 also needs to be fixed. I'm sorry to ask but the same Bot also did the same thing to all the seasons of Gilligan's Island. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilligan%27s_Island_season_1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilligan%27s_Island_season_2 https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gilligan%27s_Island_season_3&action=edit&section=11 And all the "Leave It To Beaver" seasons. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leave_It_to_Beaver_season_1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leave_It_to_Beaver_season_2 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leave_It_to_Beaver_season_3 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leave_It_to_Beaver_season_4 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leave_It_to_Beaver_season_5 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leave_It_to_Beaver_season_6 Thank you so much for your help.

Removing Template Assistance[edit]

Hi, I'm not an experienced editor here, though I did contribute significantly lately to the Zahran tribe page and would like you to review the authenticity of the template that reads "This article needs additional citations for verification. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed." 144.86.34.230 (talk) 05:03, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Also, happy birthday! 144.86.34.230 (talk) 05:04, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the birthday wishes - that's a few weeks ago now.
Let's see. The tag was added in 2018 by Bradv (talk · contribs) when the article looked like this. Since then, yes, the article has changed substantially, and many new sources have been added. I'm going to remove the tag. -- John of Reading (talk) 10:48, 26 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Direct uses of Template:Infobox[edit]

A decade(!) ago, you kindly created User:Pigsonthewing/Direct calls to Infobox. Please could you repeat that exercise (feel free to overwrite the original). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:32, 6 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

 Doing... -- John of Reading (talk) 16:43, 6 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
@Pigsonthewing:  Done - pretty speedy now I have the uncompressed dump on an SSD drive. At the bottom of User:Pigsonthewing/Direct calls to Infobox there's a short list of articles using redirects to ((Infobox)). There aren't many redirects, and they aren't used much, so I looked through them all manually. I fixed Federal College of Agriculture, Akure. -- John of Reading (talk) 17:17, 6 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
