is that a general problem, or just affecting me?
Also, the web version of Nick's replay appears to have no content from
him, only his quote of my message:
In message <JNEIKFDPGFACDNNDIHNMKEIHELAA.nickpj(a)gmail.com>om>, Nick Jenkins
months ago, User:GMaxwell undertook to arrange for Google to
read the new 'coord' template:
when they parse the raw Wikipedia data for their Google Earth Wikipedia
Unfortunately, he hasn't posted for some time (I do hope he's OK).
Can someone else pick up that baton, please, or advise me who to
contact? Or perhaps even confirm that that's been done?
, it looks
like Google just get the Wikipedia database dumps, do some text
processing stuff with it, and use that.
That's my understanding.
(Although I probably could have confirmed this with the
yesterday at their developer day, but it was stand around for ages
after his talk
when he was swamped by questions to ask this, _or_ go and drink free
what are you gonna do?!)
Tsk! Some people have no web 2.0 priorities!
What do we have to do here? If the template changes,
isn't it up to
Google to update their internal tool for parsing the database dump to
extract this info?
I would have thought so, too, but there has been some - very vocal -
opposition to changing anything until *after* Google have updated their
parser; hence my request here.
