  • @99of9: I tried to create this property but an automatic check failed: example value "guide/wa/WE00684" does not match regular expression [a-z]+/[a-z]+/[a-z]+/[A-Z]{2}\d{5}[a-z]?(.htm)?.. Please fix your proposal and your property will be created shortly. This is an automated message but do not hesitate to ping me if you need any help. − Pintoch (talk) 22:43, 28 June 2019 (UTC)
    Thanks, I've adjusted it. --99of9 (talk) 10:22, 29 June 2019 (UTC)
    Some help, 99of9? Go to, then copy and paste your regular expression (([a-z]+/)?[a-z]+/[a-z]+/[A-Z]{2}\d{5}[a-z]?(.htm)?) into the designated "REGULAR EXPRESSION" slot (top left). If there is any red somewhere on the page, it's because something is wrong (whether it's the expression or a string test).
    Your RegEx: you use delimiters / without informing that it is a character. \ is used to express any character (a literal value, a metacharacter or a / delimiter). The point . also has a special use: it designates any character. It must also be preceded by \ to indicate that it is again a character to read.
    In the examples, there is one or more sequences of abcdefghi followed by /, so ([a-z]+\/)+ (+ indicates one or more times what precedes it). Subsequently, there is the identifier itself which consists of uppercase, lowercase and numbers, so: \w+ (\w is the equivalent of [a-zA-Z0-9_]). Finally, there is sometimes .htm at the end of the identifier, so: (\.htm)? (? means zero or once what precedes it). You have a fair result when it is indicated Match 1 - Full match and that your string of characters is copied exactly in the same way. Friendly. —Eihel (talk) 00:45, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
    Yes, thanks Eihel. I've done it often before, scraping for MnM sets, but was too quick here. --99of9 (talk) 00:51, 3 July 2019 (UTC)
