Clearing completed functions

At what point should we clear out the functions that have already been created? -wd-Ryan (Talk/Edits) 16:24, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

I'd hesitantly suggest leaving many of them in place for "a while" [purposefully fuzzy!].
Perhaps [only/especially?] if they're part of a larger group of related functions?
I think that could be useful because they might provide both helpful examples for other editors to examine/adapt, as well as simple motivation/inspiration along the lines of "other people have solved some of these, so maybe I can help, and add a {{done}} of my own!".
I do agree occasional cleanup would be good, but I'm not sure on the timing. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 20:36, 15 September 2023 (UTC)Reply
Alright, I think they should also be added to the Wikifunctions:Catalogue when created/cleared. -wd-Ryan (Talk/Edits) 01:03, 16 September 2023 (UTC)Reply

Some functions that might prove useful to some people are various statistical lookups..

I was wondering if there are some statistical significance/ranking tests that could be added here. The thought was being able to take a wikitable as input, and do something like a Spearman rank test, very quickly. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 15:21, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

@ShakespeareFan00 Yes, I definitely expect those to be ones people create. However, we don't have support for integers, let along floating point numbers yet, so these should probably wait. Jdforrester (WMF) (talk) 15:47, 29 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

natural language morphological functions

I was thinking that WF:human languages would have and link to subpages that could act like wikiprojects for each language. Thus projects building up to abstractwiki could stay in one place instead of being shuffled from WF:suggest a function#Morphological functions to WF:catalogue#Natural language String operations.
