In jawp, the template is defined that you always include access-date, but that's not compatible with enwp: I am working on w:en:Google Code-in for example, and two errors encountered as enwp translation original lacks matching data for access-date parameters in cite web templates.
It is frustrating while CX2 offers me to edit cite web reference, the button "edit" does not work; only I could copy Template:Cite web. Not the parameters nor the url to check.
Why do you not define cite web template with the access-date set as required in enwp as well? If we don't have access-date params, then how do we prepare for cases of deadurls/replaced urls? My guess is that it's not too hard to automatically add the access-date param to at least the date the editor added that template to the page.
Is there better way to hit the date the cite web template was added, rather than manually trace the edit history? Or do you think we keep the cite web param as is, and blame jawp being too strict?
- I have to save CX2 output once, then go to enwp translation original, find the target ref tag;
- I need to browse through Edit History until I hit the date the cite web template was added.
- The ambiguity is that I am not sure if the editor adding cite web template accessed the website on the date they edited the translation original.
