GenFix [[WP:JR/SR]] behavior in {{DEFAULTSORT}}s
Closed, ResolvedPublic



  1. failed to fix, in this version, an unnecessary comma in "{{DEFAULTSORT:Morgan, Carey Elmore, Jr.}}" on [[Carey Elmore Morgan Jr.]] (note the absence of the extra comma in the page name, but its inclusion in the {{DS}}), and
  2. failed to add, in this version, any {{DEFAULTSORT}} on [[Carey Elmore Morgan Jr.]]. Yet, the original "{{DEFAULTSORT:Morgan, Carey Elmore, Jr.}}" was added by GenFixes a week ago, when the page was named [[Carey Elmore Morgan, Jr.]]. So is GenFixes abstaining from {{DS}} corrections on pages like this on purpose?

GenFixes definitely still adding a comma before Jr/Sr when creating a new DEFAULTSORT (example).
