Is this project inactive?[edit]

Looking at the project page listing the last release at over a decade ago. Some sort of overhaul of the content would be good to give folks an idea of where this is up to would be good...@Walkerma:? cheers, Cas Liber (talk · contribs) 20:39, 12 September 2019 (UTC)

No! The project has changed, and we don't really produce specific collections in the same way - we work to guide and support offline work, and to connect end users with the technical people; that's much harder to write up on a page than the "Version X" collections that we used to put together. I'm aware that I haven't updated the page much since our Hackathon in 2017. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to spend a day rewriting the page to reflect the new situation properly, or even to do my part to help support the coders. Right now, there's a lot of work going on (not by me!) rewriting the bot, and there is regular contact between active participants (2-3 times per month), and almost daily emails.

Maybe the project should be rebranded and the 1.0 project shutdown? Jason Quinn (talk) 11:29, 11 January 2020 (UTC)

Printworthy settings of a template are wrong[edit]

{{R from city and state}} marks all those redirects as printworthy but I don't think that's accurate: lots of cities are only in one state or it would be trivial to find the city entry you're looking for in a print edition. ―Justin (koavf)TCM 15:13, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

This probably applies to all the templates that feed Category:Redirects from more specific geographic names. I see that {{R from unnecessary disambiguation}}, which is unprintworthy, gives Paris, France as an example of an unnecessary comma-separated qualifier.
I first noticed this issue when fixing a printability conflict on Los Angeles, California. I noticed the same on Boston, Massachusetts but haven't fixed it there yet.
I suppose it would be best for the aforementioned templates to default to unprintworthy but accept a parameter for overriding this. --SoledadKabocha (talk) 19:33, 7 August 2020 (UTC)
Another example is {{R from ambiguous sort name}}, which is {{printworthy}} with no way of making it {{unprintworthy}}. Thus for example Taylor, Dean redirects to DAB page Dean Taylor, which is correctly DEFAULTSORTed as "Taylor, Dean". This means that in print there will be two identical entries, one a redirect and the other the DAB page which it targets. IMO it should be unprintworthy by default, but accept a printworthy parameter in like manner to e.g. {{R from ambiguous term}} and {{R from incomplete disambiguation}}.
