I'm trying to edit the election results boxes to include a separate column for winners and make them neater, but I can't quite figure out how to make it work without making the whole box a mess. Any advice, please?

I was trying to make them neater by creating a separate column that would indicate the winner of the election. When I try to edit the templates, though, everything becomes messy.

Thanks. Which template would that be on?

Tom Reitz, I understand you maintain User:LinkRotBot. I recently noticed two minor bugs in LinkRotBot.

For the first, it annotated a link as dead that it had already previously annotated as dead a month earlier, resulting in a link with two "(dead link)" annotations.

The second bug was this change of a link to an archive link that has worked without issue throughout the period in question. I undid the LinkRotBot edit. I suspect the reason the LinkRotBot might have thought the linked timed out is because cal-access.ss.ca.gov's robots.txt is configured to deny access to all robots. LinkRotBot should probably not treat such links as having timed out.
Hmm... something similar may have happened at Davidson County Schools, North Carolina. I reverted LinkRotBot edits to that page. —RichardP (talk) 03:26, 1 December 2014 (CST)
A second example of a link that was doubly annotated as dead is this edit. —RichardP (talk) 03:30, 1 December 2014 (CST)
