BOT Request[edit]

Hi Anomie, I have requested for a bot to cleanup the Tamil wiki articles, I didn't get any reply regarding the same, to whom I can approach for the same? Thanks!--Dineshkumar Ponnusamy (talk) 09:45, 21 April 2014 (UTC)

AnomieBOT doesn't clerk DRV[edit]

For some reason AnomieBOT hasn't update the two DRV subpages in the last 2 days, and the task status on Labs says "job missing". Regards, Armbrust The Homunculus 10:55, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Restarted (looks like it died for out-of-memory). Thanks for pinging me about it. Anomie 13:20, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Request assistance with Wikipedia:High-risk images[edit]

Hello Anomie,

I was doing some research on WP:CSD criterion, and noticed that one of the criterion, CSD F8, had a link to Wikipedia talk:Cascade-protected items#About high-risk images explaining what a "High-risk image" is. Since this links to a section on a talk page, this isn't really an official community-approved process, and if the page gets archived, the link will eventually be broken. What I have done is the following:

  1. Copied the section Wikipedia talk:Cascade-protected items#About high-risk images over to a new page: Wikipedia:High-risk images.
  2. Placed a {{Brainstorming}} tag on Wikipedia:High-risk images until the guideline is further developed.

I'm informing you of this as you were one of the participants in Wikipedia talk:Cascade-protected items#About high-risk images. As I'm not a complete expert in the field of high-risk images, any assistance you may be able to provide in hopefully writing Wikipedia:High-risk images into a policy that can be accepted by consensus would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Steel1943 (talk) 17:51, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Updates to User:Anomie/useridentifier.js[edit]

I added massmessage-sender and some global rights, seems to work fine, and I assume you're okay with this modification. Side note... I just discovered User:Anomie/ajaxpreview.js. Holy cow! I also love your link classifier and user identifier, but this ajax preview in particular needs to be installed as a gadget. Not being able to see the refs when previewing is a common frustration. The heck with the gadget, merge this into core! Shall I make a proposal at WP:GP? Thanks — MusikAnimal talk 22:21, 4 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the update, looks correct although I haven't explicitly tested it yet. Feel free to make the gadget proposal if you want, although I'm going through a wikibreak phase at the moment and probably won't do a whole lot if anything needs doing. Anomie 13:25, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

BAG assistance needed[edit]

Hi, there is an ongoing discussion at the moment at WP:ANI#User:Werieth_runs_unapproved_bot. Maybe you are interested to join it. Thanks. (talk) 20:49, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

Why is code in mw.lua running twice?[edit]

When I add the following code to the end of mw.lua (right above "return mw"):

countInGlobal = (countInGlobal or 0) + 1
string.countInString = (string.countInString or 0) + 1
math.countInMath = (math.countInMath or 0) + 1

and I check the values of those variables, countInGlobal is 1, which makes sense, but string.countInString and math.countInMath are both 2, which doesn't. Do you know why this is? The only way I can see that happening is if all of mw.lua runs twice, but I'm not sure why this would happen, or why string and math would be preserved but globals wouldn't be. Jackmcbarn (talk) 04:18, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Apparently whatever is running it twice is preserving the built-in globals but not globals defined in the file itself. I suspect this could happen if Scribunto_LuaSandboxEngine is instantiated twice. Anomie 11:31, 15 May 2014 (UTC)


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)

File:Flag of Sweden.svg[edit]

Would you mind please updating the file with the new colours set to the Commons file? We found a government source on the official shades of blue and yellow. Fry1989 eh? 21:20, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

@Fry1989: Anomie's on a wikibreak, so he probably won't get around to this any time soon. You might get a better response at Wikipedia:SVG help. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 21:44, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Request for comment[edit]

Hello there, a proposal regarding pre-adminship review has been raised at Village pump by Anna Frodesiak. Your comments here is very much appreciated. Many thanks. Jim Carter through MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 06:46, 28 May 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)
