Educational institutions

Hey Coloradohusky, I noticed that you recently created Were you aware of (and the raw list It would probably be good to unify pages. --Jodizzle (talk) 18:14, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

No I wasn't, thanks! I'll merge my page into the list, and clean it all up --Coloradohusky (talk) 20:08, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I also think it's worth considering a re-structure of the Educational_institutions page. The way it originally worked was that VoynichCr had a bot that processed the links from into the formatted table on That bot doesn't run anymore, though, and even when it did run, it crashed on processing the Educational_institutions page because it was too big and ran up against wiki page size limits (or something like that).

I'll do something similar to,, etc. --Coloradohusky (talk) 19:41, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

IA links to youtube videos

They appear all broken? Not only are they missing /details/ in the URL, the only video available per the listed link (ones I tried) is from another user, not you? VADemon (talk) 11:48, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

I don't quite get what you mean? The links like, or --Coloradohusky (talk) 03:53, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
Links like this one: (under your Youtube category) are invalid because they don't have /details/. But even the ones I checked aren't uploaded to IA yet? VADemon (talk) 23:08, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
