Bot[edit]

Hi. I do not understand the exact reason that you withdraw your request. -- Magioladitis (talk) 06:57, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

@Magioladitis: Simply ran out of time to do a full bot run generating wiki pages and manually update 100's of toolserver external links before June 30 to assure a seamless transition of cleanup listings from toolserver to labs. The bot has been generating html pages for several weeks that are hosted on labs and can be used for the external links. --Bamyers99 (talk) 17:51, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

@KatBerg52: See Wikipedia:Bots. In this message Bot refers to User:CleanupWorklistBot. --Bamyers99 (talk) 23:42, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

User:AlexNewArtBot/NZ on commons?[edit]

I would like a report like User:AlexNewArtBot/NZ, but on commons rather than en.wiki. Even better would we a report that covered both (better because it would encourage editors to be cross-project, to reuse commons images, etc). Any hints on where I might find one? Stuartyeates (talk) 08:10, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

@Stuartyeates: I did some testing to see if this is feasible. commons adds 50,000+ new files a day vs about 3,000 new articles a day for en.wiki. The processing time (> 24 hours to do all projects) was to much for me to attempt something like this. --Bamyers99 (talk) 00:20, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
@Bamyers99: thanks for that. While it doesn't solve my problem it does at least narrow the field. Stuartyeates (talk) 00:28, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Nomination for deletion of Template:Alcohol laws in the United States[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svgTemplate:Alcohol laws in the United States has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page. While I like the idea of this template, I don't think it serves much of a navigational purpose when most of the links here direct to different parts of the same article. In clicking through about 15 states, Texas is the only one I could find with its own article. As the author of this template, I thought you would want to know about this nomination. --CrunchySkies (talk) 04:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

After closer examination (caused by going through and redirecting each state to the proper section, after sections had been renamed in the core article), I believe I have made a mistake and am now withdrawing my nomination. Turns out 19 states have their own articles: Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin. This would make the template quite useful. The first bunch of the alphabet don't have their own articles, and that's where I was clicking around initially, which mislead me to think that the majority didn't... I guess I should've checked everything. Sorry for the trouble. Anyway, carry on. :) --CrunchySkies (talk) 05:31, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Cape Bojeador[edit]

Hello,

The bot placed Cape Bojeador into the FinlandSearchResult page. Try as I might, I can't see how it could possibly be related to Finland. Can you advise? JIP | Talk 07:40, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

@JIP: It matched because the Finland rules look for lang-fi which also matches lang-fil. I updated the Finland rules to ignore lang-fil. --Bamyers99 (talk) 13:49, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

New articles bot[edit]

Hello! I'm wondering why the information from User:AlexNewArtBot/CanadaSearchResult isn't being transcluded on Wikipedia:WikiProject Canada/New articles. I can't seem to figure it out. Got any ideas? - SweetNightmares 17:59, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

@SweetNightmares: The 'New articles' page after transclusion is too big (> 2 Meg). It is in the hidden Category:Pages where template include size is exceeded. I have modified InceptionBot to decrease the size of the transcluded SearchResult page. The change will take effect for the August 21 bot run. --Bamyers99 (talk) 19:03, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
