Unknown completion?Edit

Hello, the Oberon book displays a completion status of 90%. Someone please look at Shelf:Operating systems and tell me why Oberon is listed under "Unknown completion".
Thanks, ... PeterEasthope (discusscontribs) 20:16, 5 July 2022 (UTC)

@PeterEasthope: page status only supports "0%", "25%", "50%", "75%" and "100%. You need to choose the one of those that best suits your need. Try "75%" for this one. L10nM4st3r/Roar at me 22:00, 5 July 2022 (UTC)
Now {{decistage|9|Jul 5, 2022}} and {{status|75|Jul 5, 2022}}. Still under "Unknown completion" in shelf lists. Must be something else. Thx, ... PeterEasthope (discusscontribs) 22:13, 6 July 2022 (UTC)
@PeterEasthope: did you add the % symbol? It is needed. L10nM4st3r/Roar at me 16:10, 19 July 2022 (UTC)
That works. Thanks.
Next question relating to access: there are shelves Linux, Mac OS & etc. How can I create Shelf:Oberon. Thx, ... PeterEasthope (discusscontribs) 15:01, 30 July 2022 (UTC)
@PeterEasthope: See Wikibooks:Reading room/Assistance, a user already posted a question about making shelves . L10nM4st3r/Roar at me 04:56, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
Thanks. Appears that with only one book about Oberon, a shelf is not appropriate. OK, except that Oberon won't appear alongside Shelf:Linux, Shelf:Mac_OS & etc. I'm not fussed about it. Thx, ... PeterEasthope (discusscontribs) 16:27, 31 July 2022 (UTC)
