Exit command[edit]

I reverted your redirect of Exit (command), because the article deals with the exit command in all operating system shells, not just the one in Unix. Please discuss majors changes like this on the talk page first. — Loadmaster (talk) 18:39, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Your Wiktionary script[edit]

I've just installed it into my Monobook, it's excellent. Wikipedia:WikiProject User scripts will tell you how to get it included in the list of scripts.

Hello JackPotte. Please block this user indefinitely. It's an imposter and will only be used for more vandalism. Thanks. -- zzuuzz (talk) 14:16, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

I've done it because he seemed irrecoverable and you've got "enwiki 74822 21:53, 03 August 2005 Abusefilter; Sysop". JackPotte (talk) 15:03, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. See also v:Wikiversity:Request_custodian_action/Archive/2#Another_vandalism_spree :) It is no doubt one of my many admirers. -- zzuuzz (talk) 15:31, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Xymon[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Xymon, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become an encyclopedia article. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Business for more information.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion, or "db", tag; if no such tag exists, then the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate and adding a hang-on tag is unnecessary), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the page meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the page that would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. Eeekster (talk) 02:29, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Nomination for deletion of Template:User interwikis[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svgTemplate:User interwikis has been nominated for deletion. You are invited to comment on the discussion at the template's entry on the Templates for discussion page. The Evil IP address (talk) 14:35, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Liberal profession[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Liberal profession has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

No need for this unsourced dictionary definition in the encyclopedia.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. PamD 17:39, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

You need a GitHub account[edit]

I posted the code onto GitHub, but I couldn't find you there. Do you have an account? The code is located at Cyberpower678/xtools.—cyberpower ChatOnline 19:26, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done JackPotte (talk) 19:40, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
I added you. You can now modify the code as needed on sight. Everything about xtools except for Peachy, is posted there.—cyberpower ChatOnline 19:43, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, I can now treat the obvious requests of https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Nova_Resource_Talk:Xtools. JackPotte (talk) 19:54, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
Please redirect that page to GitHub now, as that should now be the locate to submit bug requests.—cyberpower ChatOnline 20:04, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
It's also best to fork it first, to have a sandbox, before submitting it to the master, mine.—cyberpower ChatOnline 20:06, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
OK, I'm watching... JackPotte (talk) 20:17, 27 December 2013 (UTC)

Snottywong's tools[edit]

Thanks for migrating Snottywong's tools. I noticed that his adminscore tool doesn't seem to be working – at least not at http://tools.wmflabs.org/jackbot/snottywong/adminscore.html. Any chance you could take a look at it? Thanks. Mojoworker (talk) 00:53, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Hmm. Now none of them seem to be working (they were earlier). Getting the error message: "No webservice. The URI you have requested, /jackbot/snottywong/afdstats.html, is not currently serviced." Thanks. Mojoworker (talk) 01:02, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
I don't know why the webservice process has stopped, maybe I should restart it by cron every two hours....
Concerning the few tools out of order like the graph, I couldn't repair it in less than one hour, but I can let the volunteers have on look if they have a Labs account. JackPotte (talk) 07:53, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
There's no functionality of snottywongs "votecounter" at (example) [1] so I wonder, was this one of the tools migrated? - LuckyLouie (talk) 13:12, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes but the URL redirections are so tricky that I could not fix them for now. So currently we have to retype it: http://tools.wmflabs.org/jackbot/snottywong/cgi-bin/votecounter.cgi?page=Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Medieval_censorship. JackPotte (talk) 13:18, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Thank you again, Jack! - LuckyLouie (talk) 13:32, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Salut Jack. I was wondering if you could take another look at the tool you migrated. Snottywong's adminscore tool still doesn't seem to be working. It seems like some of the other issues you mentioned above might have been fixed. You might want to check out Wikipedia:Wikimedia Labs/Toolserver replacements. Merci beaucoup ! - tucoxn\talk 23:30, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

OK, I will try to fix or merge it and update the board after. JackPotte (talk) 09:35, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Also, afdadminstats is working, but there's no user interface page for it. It is working properly from the RfA toolbox template, and it can be used with the bare URL and editing the user param: https://tools.wmflabs.org/jackbot/snottywong/cgi-bin/afdadminstats.cgi?max=250&name=JackPotte but should there be a user i/f for it? I don't know if there was one previously. Thanks. Mojoworker (talk) 17:35, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

I'll resolve that too as soon as I will finish to master this technology. JackPotte (talk) 18:50, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Now I'm stuck on the error: No module named numpy, so let's retry next week... JackPotte (talk) 23:06, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
I've installed the good version of numpy and it's working on my PC. But with the huge Wikipedia database, the URL returns 504 Gateway Time-out. So I should remove or migrate some functions (eg: Python threads, PHP...). JackPotte (talk) 15:33, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
I've just tried in PHP but it's too slow on the server. JackPotte (talk) 20:12, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Because even in shell this simple query takes several minutes: SELECT MIN(rev_timestamp) FROM revision WHERE rev_user_text='JackPotte'; JackPotte (talk) 20:55, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

JackPotte (talk) 20:34, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Why don't you use some data that is already farmed (perhaps faster) using other tools that were re-created recently? Block count, namespaces, recent activity, and patrols (4 of the longer calls) are all available from this page (I think missing edit summaries can be calculated from there, too). Non-redirect articles created can be calculated from info on this page. That still leaves the 3 admin-area calls, which are all long. I haven't though much about this but I'll let you know if I come up with any easier solutions. - tucoxn\talk 01:07, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, actually I had this idea of merging it into Xtools on GitHub, that's why I had translated the .cgi in .php. But unfortunately the tool has been shutdown yesterday so I'll be forced to migrate before my planned unit test. JackPotte (talk) 07:17, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
My WMFLABS webservice is very unstable so I've requested a merging of the most visited snottywong tool into xtools. JackPotte (talk) 21:41, 13 September 2014 (UTC)

Mes images perdues[edit]

Bonjour,

La plupart des images que j'avais placées dans mes wikilivres (en particulier "Mathématiques avec Python et Ruby" ont été supprimées par Krd qui les trouve mal licenciées pour commons. Y a-t-il un moyen de les récupérer? Si oui, comment? Si non, que faire (réécrire les wikibooks sans images)?

AfD votecounter tool down[edit]

Hey JackPotte, looks like this tool is down. Any idea why? Thanks. ‑Scottywong| speak _ 23:11, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

It's fixed:
tools.jackbot@tools-login:~$ webservice restart
Restarting webservice... restarted.
tools.jackbot@tools-login:~$
I don't know why this service is so unstable, even when I relaunch it every 30 Min by cron...
Anyway, I've mentioned it to find a solution. JackPotte (talk) 10:20, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

NAC tool[edit]

Hey Jack, are you maintaining the NAC tool too? I'm having trouble getting it to work on me czar  06:26, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

I'm afraid that we've reached the server limit with this time out. So we must rewrite the script, maybe on Xtools (if you know any volunteer he can access to the code). JackPotte (talk) 11:51, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
