Welcome to my talk page! Drop me a line.

  • If you're here because you got an invitation to visit something called the Teahouse from someone called HostBot: double welcome! I run HostBot.
  • If you have a question about editing. Please ask it at the Teahouse Q&A board. You'll get better answers there, and you'll get them faster.
  • If you have a question about HostBot itself, or want to report a bug: please leave a detailed message and I'll respond as quickly as possible.

RE: Name on HostBot[edit]


I've recently been inactive but I plan to come back and be active as of now, so I would like my name to still be on the List, if that's at all possible.

Sounds great. I'll keep you on. Thanks! - J-Mo Talk to Me Email Me 16:21, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Message of HostBot's invite to TeaHouse[edit]

After receiving an invite from HostBot, I got interested in how HostBot had chosen user I JethroBT from all TeaHouse hosts (and finding answer here), I got really interested in HostBot, and read through stack trace of sending an invite. During that I noticed, that HostBot chooses text of the invite randomly from two different strings. Those two texts convey kinda different messages to the receiver of invite. Wouldn't it be better to merge them, so that the receiver can get a better picture about TeaHouse when reading the invite? --andrybak (talk) 19:05, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Andrybak, yep for a while this year I was helping some researchers run a mini-experiment to see if serving up peer support appeals vs. expert support appeals led to different outcomes. But that research project kind of disintegrated, and I hadn't bothered to update the code. I've done so now: the bot will be back to a single generic message that mentions both veterans and newcomers tomorrow. Good eyes :) Also, welcome (back?) to enwiki!

No, Special:Contributions/Rybak is not my account. However, accounts with same username on ruwiki, meta and wikidata were mine until I requested a username change to distinguish myself from de:User:Rybak and to be able to make a unified login. --andrybak (talk) 03:42, 13 January 2015 (UTC)


Hi! You're absolutely correct! As it was my first edit I was really just feeling it out.

As a further edit, does this seem to present a more neutral view? User:Michaelhyer/Bruce_Hyer
