Templateize Meetup in XXX YYY categories[edit]

I'd like to run this bot (using a slightly modified copy of the pywikipedia framework) to change the 672 Category:Meetup in XXX YYY categories that currently are just links to their parent category to use the Template:Meetup by location, which adds a link back to the graticule, and could do more later if someone wants to. Thoughts, support, objections? JesseW 01:45, 17 May 2012 (EDT)

And, hearing no objections for a week, I'm going to start doing it now. JesseW 23:34, 21 May 2012 (EDT)

Inactive graticules[edit]

I believe 2012-05-21 50 -119 has the correct categories and such, but the bot still changed 50,-119 to inactive today. --Juventas 22:16, 23 May 2012 (EDT)

The bot just showed me edits to the actual graticule page, not the existence of recent expeditions, so since 2012-05-21 50 -119 wasn't listed there, I mistakenly marked the graticule as inactive. I've fixed it now, thanks for alerting me! JesseW 22:29, 23 May 2012 (EDT)
I think you'll find a lot of graticules are active even if the page for them is not. Perhaps this batch of changes should be reevaluated? --Juventas 23:49, 23 May 2012 (EDT)
I can certainly work on implementing a check against the relevant Meetup in XXX YYY categories, and do a 2nd pass. I hope that if folks notice a graticule they are active in got mistakenly marked as inactive, they simply change it back. There's nothing magic or authoritative about the bot doing it.

That would be better. I'm just too lazy to always change the graticule page and add a recent expedition.--Reinhard 03:08, 24 May 2012 (EDT)
I do the same thing, so seconded. A good example is the Daytona Beach graticule, with three expeditions since April, but I never think to edit the page itself, so it shows up as inactive. -- DrCanadianNinja 20:33, 24 May 2012 (EDT)
OK, you've convinced me. I'll certainly make another pass and check the Meetup in categories. It would also be good to remove the redundant links to peeron, that are also in the template. And I'm not sure if there is a link to the Meetup categories from each graticle. If not, there should be. Maybe I'll do all this at the same time. In any case, I'll make sure to describe it beforehand, and ask for opinions... ;-) JesseW 22:16, 24 May 2012 (EDT)
And now I'm ready to make another pass. I'll upload a list of which graticules my program wants to change, and ask for opinions. JesseW 16:53, 28 May 2012 (EDT)
