Based on scripts to generate articles on geographic features on the Moon, articles on chemical elements, articles ripped from definition entries in a public domain dictionary, and US Presidents, AutostubLP2 is being used to generate article stubs for county parties wherever usable data can be found.

AutostubLP2 doesn't access the wiki directly. It 'exports' content to be imported by a wiki admin. It is maintained by James Gholston.

Process

Attempts to describe the process used to hunt down historical information using the Internet archive include here and the following:

Find all local contacts: county/parish/borough parties, organizations, affiliates, auxiliaries' and whatever else may appear. Document the page you found them and document any names attached to places and the date.

Additional historical information from the first half of 1995 can be found at:

Please note any additional sources that may be discovered!

  • 1A: For student organizations, contacts, and anything else that can be found: find the earliest versions of each organization and record who was in it when to the best approximations that are practical. If a person's title is unclear, put in a question mark (often a singular contact will be a chair).
  • 1B: Find the next preserved version of the organization and repeat the above. Keep going until you've reached either the present or the most recently preserved information about it.
  • 2: Move to more recent versions of the state party and find county/parish/borough parties, organizations, affiliates, auxiliaries' and whatever else that may not have been found on the previous iteration. Repeat steps 1A and 1B accordingly.
  • 3: stuff the results into a spreadsheet (James will happily handle this step)
  • 3A: Stuff the spreadsheet into the bot (James will happily do this step).
  • 3B: import the script output into LPedia and watch the articles pop into existence. The person doing this will need Admin permissions here.

Difficulty Estimation

Some states will be easier to start than others, and progress may resume faster and keep from stalling longer if James focuses on the easier targets.
