Same-sex marriage in the United States[edit]

You added a protection tag that I needed to revert in order to undo some vandalism. Perhaps you'll want to re-add it? (It was also in an odd location in the file, not sure why.) Thx. Bmclaughlin9 (talk) 23:39, 14 April 2015 (UTC)

That's Cyberbot's job. I'm planning on making some major changes in the coming days.—cyberpowerChat:Limited Access 13:37, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

List of Pokémon: XY episodes (part 1)[edit]

On the Pokémon: XY episodes (part 1) webpage, it states that the number of episodes is 49. I count up to 48 episodes. Shouldn't the number of episodes be changed to 48 to reflect what Wikipedia viewers are seeing? If the correct number of episodes is 49 then are you including the delayed Pokémon episode titled "An Undersea Place to Call Home!"? If you are including the delayed Pokémon episode in the episode count number then shouldn't this episode be apart of the List of Pokémon: XY episodes (part 1) webpage instead of the List of Pokémon: XY episodes (part 2) webpage?

Cyberbot II breaking redirects, still[edit]

[1]. Please try to get it to stop breaking redirects. All that really needs to happen is to recognize that the page is a redirect, and then place the template after the redirect, not before it. - TexasAndroid (talk) 14:01, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. I never got around to it. I will start working on the bot soon.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:05, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
I placed a quick dirty fix to fix your problem. I want to rewrite my bots soon, this code will likely get scrapped soon.—cyberpowerChat:Online 12:29, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Cyberbot II section headings[edit]

Hi, this is in response to the bot-inserted heading "Blacklisted Links Found on" (pagename) at Talk:Jessica Henwick.

I guess this is a matter of taste for talk pages. However, as unnecessary capitals are not used in section headings in articles, I suggest that it would be best if Cyberbot II did not use them on talk pages either.

Thanks for improving the encyclopedia! – Fayenatic London 08:23, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry. That would require the bot to start searching for new and old section heading. It already does that, and since this change isn't very necessary, I'm going to respectfully decline this suggestion.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:07, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
OK, thanks for replying. I don't understand your point about the bot having to search for new and old section heading. I did not mean that it should do extra work to change the headings for messages that it had already left in the past. What I means was that for new messages left from now on, you could change the text prefixed before the page name from "Blacklisted Links Found on " to "Blacklisted links found on ". I'm sure that should be simple. However, it's obviously not at all important, just presentation. – Fayenatic London 21:21, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Cyberbot currently surveys every page that has a tag, and checks the talk page for a message. It checks using section headers. That's what I mean by new and old.
Ah, I see, Well, forget it then. Thanks – Fayenatic London 08:43, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Edit count[edit]

Heyo, it has been so long! How have you been? :) Well, I have absolutely no idea how all this works but I wanted to ask something. Is it possible to include edits made using this script in the section of "(Semi)-automated edits"? — Yash! [talk] 02:51, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Possibly yes. Would you mind opening a bug on GitHub so this suggestion doesn't get lost?—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:08, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Book report issues[edit]

Cyberbot has just created a report at Book talk:English Heritage properties in Somerset however there are a couple of errors and I'm not sure why. List of English Heritage properties in Somerset is shown as a list (should be FL) and Dunster Butter Cross is showing as B class (when it should be GA). Do I need to do anything to update these?— Rod talk 06:54, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

The classes were incorrect on the talk pages of those articles. The class= parameter is what is read when listing. I have fixed them for you and they should be updated soon.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:10, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks.— Rod talk 19:29, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Help please: Opt Out for "additional statistics"[edit]

Hello Cyberpower678,

Would you please be able to help me understanding what the process is to Opt Out to "additional statistics" for the for the User Analysis/stat tool found on this page? (I found your name on the FAQ of that page, and hope you may be able to help).

I understand that to opt in, you have to add content to User:Ludopedia/EditCounterOptIn.js, but I am confused as to what to do to Opt Out. Thanks in advance for your help. Face-smile.svg — Ludopedia(Talk) 08:55, 30 April 2015 (UTC)

Hello, just to avoid confusion would like to add : I was opted in, but now wish to opt out (this is for the Wikipedia in French. Thanks for sharing info if you can. — Ludopedia(Talk) 02:41, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Blank the page that opted you in or delete it. Both ways work.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:11, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
I could not blank the page (would not allow me), so following your advice I had it deleted. Thanks for your help in the first place Face-smile.svg — Ludopedia(Talk) 11:16, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Couple minor (yet strange) bugs I've noticed[edit]

Hello. The edit counter seems to running reliably as of late. Thought I would drop by and mention some minor problems I've seen.

A few months ago a very strange edit, credited to my account, appeared on the 'Latest edit (global)' list. It was some obscure change to an obscure technical page (I think) on German Wikipedia. I have never edited on German WP and certainly not on any page like that, and I currently have no contributions of record on German WP. The edit description remained on my latest edits list for a least a couple weeks, maybe more, before it disappeared. The entire time the edit description was visible, my edit count page was thrown into a funk with many of the words appearing in German. For example, under 'Top edited pages' the first sub-heading was spelled "Artikel" instead of "Article". After the strange edit disappeared off the list, everything returned to normal.

Less mysterious is the HotCat count at the bottom of the counter page under '(Semi-)automated edits (approximate)'. It shows 0 edits, and always has shown 0 edits, despite the fact I have used HotCat hundreds of times. --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 04:00, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Sounds like a bug for sure, but since I've been inactive on wiki recently, I can't tell what caused it. If it happens again, let me know.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:13, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Will do. I assume you are talking about the appearance of the German words. Any thoughts on the HotCat count? --RacerX11 Talk to meStalk me 21:00, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
I've been inactive so I can't say until I look at the code.—cyberpowerChat:Online 22:08, 14 May 2015 (UTC)


Moin, just a question, is it possible to check with your tool this elections too?

Thanks :-) --Itti (talk) 20:34, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

If the page structures are the same, it should work, but there is no certainty.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:15, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, they are, it would be great :-) Thanks --Itti (talk) 19:22, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Then you should go ahead and try it.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:31, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
There are in the moment two OS and six SG elections, but I can´t choose them and I can´t select them, sorry --Itti (talk) 22:03, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Can you open a bug on GitHub for this. That way your suggestion won't get lost.—cyberpowerChat:Online 22:11, 14 May 2015 (UTC) --se4598 (talk) 15:04, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Wikidata inactivity tool[edit]

Hi! This isn't particularly urgent, but we changed our inactivity rule from 10 actions to 5 actions every 6 months. Would you mind updating the bot? Thanks! --Rschen7754 01:27, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

I'll update it in a few minutes.—cyberpowerChat:Online 19:15, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done and fixed several bugs in the process. Check it out.—cyberpowerChat:Online 20:15, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
It looks good, thanks! --Rschen7754 00:56, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

RfA tally outdated[edit]

I've noticed that the RfA tally page has, unusually, not been updated for quite some time. This results in inaccurate stats on all RfA templates. Is something wrong, or is this scheduled downtime? Mamyles (talk) 21:04, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

I noticed the same thing. All the best, Miniapolis 13:31, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Bot flagging links on the article about the site[edit]

The bot is (correctly) detecting a blacklisted link on the article Fiverr. The catch is that the link is to the article's subject's website. which is generally permitted under WP:EL. I'm sure the site is probably on the spam list for a good reason. And because of that, I don't wish to request the site be whitelisted or for the bot to stop flagging links to elsewhere in Wikipedia. Is there a way for the bot to stop flagging a link just on the link subject's article? Thanks, Stesmo (talk) 16:41, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

If it's the only link, you can set the invisible parameter on the tag to true.—cyberpowerChat:Online 17:25, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the workaround.Stesmo (talk) 17:35, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Cyberbot I doesn't parse {{pagelinks}}[edit]

I've just noticed that the RFPP clerking task doesn't recognise {{pagelinks}} and skips over them. Twinkle doesn't use them nor do most manual requests but Huggle does use them so it can send requests to RFPP from any namespace without much fuss, this request seems to have prevented the bot from processing further down. Take a look at it whenever, it's not a high priority fix. tutterMouse (talk) 15:33, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Fixed and squished several bugs that were crawling around the code.—cyberpowerChat:Online 17:50, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Cyberbot confused by duplicated listing at AfD[edit]

This version listed Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Louise Blouin twice. One of them was speedy closed, but the second not. Formally this action of the bot was correct, but can it be made smarter than that? E.g. teach it to remove duplicate transclusions in AfD pages. Staszek Lem (talk) 03:04, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I'll look into it.—cyberpowerChat:Limited Access 11:39, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/Recent automation?[edit]

Would it be possible for your bot to automatically update this list? –xenotalk 13:50, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

I'll look into it. Right now I'm updating RfPPBot.—cyberpowerChat:Online 13:54, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Hi Cyberpower, I saw your name on the XTools page, by which I assume that you are one of the people now maintaining the tool. I'm curious to know whether you are also behind the cool new updates to the edit counter, like the edits by time of day, day of week, etc. (It kind of reminds me of Wikichecker.) Anyway, if you are, or if you have a good understanding of how it works, I was wondering if you would be interested in having a chat via email (or something else off-wiki) about a tool I've been mulling over and wanting to make for a couple of years, but haven't had the knowledge of where to start. Please let me know if you would be interested in discussing it. ~Adjwilley (talk) 04:57, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Hedonil made those changes but I should understand how to implement something like that. In any case, I'm traveling today and my availability is limited.—cyberpowerChat:Offline 08:03, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the reply. There's no rush, this has been on my back burner for a couple years. I'll send you an email with more detail on the project so I don't have to be so cryptic. I'll also ping User:MusikAnimal, who I suspect might be interested since this deals with a (potentially) better way of detecting sock-puppets than subjective observations of behavior. ~Adjwilley (talk) 16:16, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
