Educational institutions

Hey Coloradohusky, I noticed that you recently created https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Schools_and_Universities. Were you aware of https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=ArchiveBot/Educational_institutions (and the raw list https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=ArchiveBot/Educational_institutions/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 https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=ArchiveBot/Educational_institutions/list into the formatted table on https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=ArchiveBot/Educational_institutions. 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). (This sort of bot-management the original point of the "ArchiveBot/" titled pages.)
Maybe the way to go is to have a top-level "path" called "Educational Institutions", and then nest pages under that educational institutions on a per-country basis. We do something like that for the "Elections" pages, where we have https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Elections, and then for e.g., the United States presidential election, we have https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Elections/2020_United_States_presidential_election. --Jodizzle (talk) 01:07, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Yes, I think that Jodizzle suggestion is fine. Sub-pages per country, or sections in one page if lists are short (not this case). My bot is deprecated and it isn't going to update "ArchiveBot/" pages. JAA was working in a new approach, but it isn't finished yet. --VoynichCr (talk) 15:54, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
I'll do something similar to https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=ArchiveBot/Museums/Africa, https://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=ArchiveBot/Museums/Poland, etc. --Coloradohusky (talk) 19:41, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
