User:AlexNewArtBot

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The bot looks at New Articles and puts relevant articles into the New Articles lists of Portals and Projects. The goal is to help editors find new articles related to their areas of interest.

If you are interested in Wikipedia:New pages patrolling, add importScript( "User:Fred Gandt/getUnpatrolledOfAlexNewArtBotResultsPages.js" ); (Feedback welcomed and encouraged) to your account's common.js file before reading these lists.

The script will create buttons on these pages, which on use will begin relevant searches to determine which new pages listed are still unpatrolled, and highlight those references/page-links.
All links in the page will open by default in a new tab or window, and visited pages will have the normal [Mark page as patrolled] option at the bottom right.

The bot is superseded by InceptionBot by User:Bamyers99. InceptionBot still uses this page.

Process overview[edit]

When the bot runs, it scores a new article using the rules and if the score matches or exceeds the threshold, the article is added to the top of the new article list for a Portal/WikiProject. Articles already on a new article list are removed 14 days after the creation date. Articles moved into the Main namespace from another namespace will be reported as new articles.

The following namespaces are scanned for new articles/pages: Main (Article), Draft, Category, Template. New non-Main namespace articles/pages will only be displayed when transcluded into the Wikipedia and User namespaces. They will not be displayed when transcluded into other namespaces such as Portal. New non-Main namespace articles/pages can be suppressed from displaying when transcluded into the Wikipedia namespace by using the SuppressNS option in the rule page. See 'Create the rules' below.

Viewing previous new article results[edit]

The bot does not create an archive of previous new articles. The history for a SearchResult page can be used to view previous results. Viewing every 14th history item will yield the desired result. Example: JapanSearchResult. Click on the date for a history item to view the page asof that date.

How to add feeds to the new article bot[edit]

Yes, you can add new feeds for the bot yourself. Here I describe how to do it. It is a little bit tricky, so if you are unsure what you are doing, ask the bot's owner.

Steps to create bot feed:

Select a name for the new feed[edit]

The name should not be used for any other feeds. It should not contain spaces and other non-letter symbols. It should be disambigous. E.G. UK is not good: is it Ukraine or United Kingdom. It should be reasonably short and you should be able to spell it uniformly through out a few steps. E.g. Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is not a good name.

Announce the new feed on this page[edit]

Put the template {{Subst:User:AlexNewArtBot/NewFeed|FeedName|Portal Name}} in the appropriate subsection of the #Currently supported section of this page. Here the FeedName stands for the name you have selected and the Portal Name is the name of a Portal page with the feed (Portal:### or Wikipedia:WikiProject ###). The feed would create redlinks for the Rules, Search Results and Log of the new feed. The Portal Name will be linked automatically, so there is no need to put it in square brackets.

Create the rules[edit]

Well this is the most tricky part: You have to provide some rules for the bot. Each rule has some numerical value (might be negative). All the values from the rules applicable to the article are added together to get a score. If a rule matches the lead of the article the points for the rule are doubled. If the final score is at least as much as the threshold, then the article is in.

Both threshold and rules are written in the rules page. One line per rule (and one line per threshold).

Threshold is specified as

@@number@@ where the number is the threshold (duh). If omitted the default threshold is 10 points. E.g.
@@14@@

means 14 points threshold

Rules has format:

Points /Pattern that we should have/ , /Inhibitor1/ , /Inhibitor2/ , /Inhibitor3/ ...

The Points is the number of points for the rule, negative numbers are allowed. If omitted than by default every rule costs 10 points. Do not forget that if the lead is matched points are doubled. Pattern that we should have is a Regular expression as in Perl that should be matched in the text of an article so the rule is counted. The inhibitors are the patterns that "inhibit" the rule. Making it inactive even if the Pattern that we should have is matched. E.g when creating the rules for the Russia related articles, I want to include Saint Petersburg - the second largest city in Russia. On the other hand many American articles mention St. Petersburg, Florida and other American cities. Thus, I could want to decrease the value of the rule and inhibit it completely if Florida mentioned:

7 /Petersburg/ , /Florida/

In general the names of a country or of its capital are often mentioned in unrelated articles (e.g. somebody traveled there, etc.) But lead rarely mentions unrelated articles, thus usually we would want to have the name of the country to be below the threshold but above the half-threshold.

Categories are usually friends of the bot (if only all the new article writers used them!) so they deserve the cost above the threshold.

Note that \W (uppercase only) is needed to mark a word boundary. Without this by default a rule can match any part of a word.

The following symbols {}[]()^$.|*+?\ must be preceded by \ to be taken literally. Otherwise they have special functions: * - wildcard, x? - optionality of the preceding symbol or bracketed string, (xy) - scope marking (e.g. for the purpose of | or ?), (x|y) or [xy] - alternatives, etc.

For other inspirations look in the rules for similar newsfeeds.

There are a few magical words in the rule file:

  • $USER substitutes into the user name
  • $SIZE>value / $SIZE < value : if the pattern true then it is matched.
  • $TITLE:pattern - if the pattern is found in the page title then it is matched. Example: /$TITLE:nature p?reserve/
  • $$FOO$$ matches {{FOO.*?}}
  • \p{Is...} matches a character in ... alphabet. Ex. \p{IsGreek} List of Alphabets
  • ##SuppressNS=Category|Template## Suppress new non-Main namespace articles/pages from displaying when transcluded into the Wikipedia namespace. The available options are Category, Draft, Template. Multiple values are separated with a |.

Test the rules[edit]

Use the page at rule test (Wikimedia Tool Labs) to test the rules after they have been saved. This will check for rule errors. A wiki page name can also be entered to test the scoring.

Inform the bot about the new job for it[edit]

Put into User:AlexNewArtBot/Master a new line with the name of the newsfeed (the same as the name of the rules file after the /). And that is all. The next time the bot works it will work on your feed.

Add the feed to a Portal/WikiProject[edit]

Add {{User:AlexNewArtBot/<insert rulename>SearchResult}} to the new articles section of a Portal/WikiProject. Example: {{User:AlexNewArtBot/RussiaSearchResult}}

To display as a collapsed list use the following:

{{show
|Bot detected new articles
|
{{User:AlexNewArtBot/RussiaSearchResult}}
}}

For a scrolling list use the following:

{{scrolling window|link=User:AlexNewArtBot/RussiaSearchResult|height=300px|title=New articles}}
