It looks like some AnomieBOT tasks have errors, and doesn't work currently. Regards, Armbrust The Homunculus 14:41, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Looks like the shared database ran out of memory, so queries failed, so the tasks were stopped. Restarted them. Anomie 15:31, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
Face-smile.svg Thank you. Armbrust The Homunculus 17:10, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

Some tasks have "errored" out. Could you restart them? Regards, Armbrust The Homunculus 05:55, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Shared database again. Anomie 11:10, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

The same as before. Some tasks errored out. Armbrust The Homunculus 10:28, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Database again. Restarted. Thanks for the ping! Anomie 11:07, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Sleep state misperception[edit]

AnomieBOT is edit warring with me over Sleep state misperception. AnomieBOT can't read the talk page as a human can, please check Talk:Sleep state misperception#Ann Finkbeiner before letting the bot add a fact template. Proxima Centauri (talk) 15:11, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

The bot's not adding the template; it's adding a date to it. If you actually remove the template, it won't put it back. Jackmcbarn (talk) 15:13, 11 June 2014 (UTC)

Removing API formats[edit]

Max made an RFC, pls take a look. [1]. Thx! --Yurik (talk) 01:59, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Template:Language with name[edit]

Any thoughts on Template talk:Language with name#Suggestion: An optional literal translation? Yaris678 (talk) 16:21, 4 July 2014 (UTC)


Hi Anomie. Could you stop AnomieBOT from adding the "metadata" class to TfD pages when it creates the daily log? This has been creating problems on mobile view, and also with T13bot, which has been removing the class from old log pages. See here for an example where they are reverting each other, and here for the VPT thread. Best — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 23:44, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

See User talk:AnomieBOT#Bot warring. Note the one being "warred" over is the navigation header at the top, not the closed discussions. Anomie 01:55, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, I hadn't seen that. I'll remember to check the bot's talk page as well next time. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 02:14, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Can you please adjust the bot to not leave the extra whitespace at the top of each daily section? -- Netoholic @ 21:35, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

I've removed the space between the category and the comment, which seems to give the same output as in your edit. The other bit of whitespace seems like it would be more problematic, so I'm not going to mess with it. Anomie 12:24, 18 August 2014 (UTC)


Lower to semi-protection? It is transcluded by less than 3,000 pages. I requested template-protection for similar reason on template:in-universe, but it was declined. --George Ho (talk) 16:13, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Why ask me? Take it to WP:RFPP. Anomie 11:20, 30 July 2014 (UTC)


Thaks for re-acculturating me. :-) --Kim Bruning (talk) 14:52, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

Bug in 'Sandbox' link colouring[edit]

Hi Anomie. I believe you were the author of MediaWiki:Gadget-mySandbox.js? I've just posted a bug report about it at Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)#Bug_in_.27Sandbox.27_link_colouring (permanent link) - your input would be appreciated. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 09:49, 17 August 2014 (UTC)


Thank you!!!! It's fantastic!!! Anna Frodesiak (talk) 08:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

You're welcome! Anomie 11:21, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
+1 for this. That's a nice script! — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 13:39, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

Just wondering, is there a script to make the whole left side column narrow and tiny font? It takes up so much space. Best, Anna Frodesiak (talk) 09:08, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Not that I know of, sorry. Anomie 11:21, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Unnecessary code[edit]

Is the line | subst = <includeonly>{{subst:substcheck}}</includeonly> unnecessary in templates Ambox and Fix if {{ {{{|safesubst:}}}#invoke:Unsubst||$N=Current |date=__DATE__ |$B= etc.}}</includeonly> is used? Debresser (talk) 17:37, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Probably, yes. Anomie 19:38, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

OAuth Hello World[edit]

Hi Anomie,

I'm just reading and playing around with OAuth and found your OAuth Hello World script, which seems very helpful to me. However, after having authorized the script and trying to do a post through the script (second link) I get an internal server error. The same problem occurs with the "enduser" version. Would you like to have a look over it? It would be very helpful to me to have a working example script. Thanks a lot, cheers from Germany, Yellowcard (talk) 11:26, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

It looks like something is not right with HHVM and OAuth, or else with OAuth and testwiki. I'll have to follow up with one of the developers working on that. Anomie 13:30, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks a lot, Anomie! Do you think you could give me a short hint on my German talk page when it's fixed? Thanks again, Yellowcard (talk) 12:08, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
