Why is your bot adding "underlinked" to nine word articles?[edit]

If there are only nine words in an article, and three are already linked, why is your script saying to tag the article as "underlinked?" When I go to your bot's user page it has links to Task numbers, can you link to this task or tell me which one it is? I think your bot and another one I just saw were not thought out.

@MicroPaLeo:. Hi, thanks for letting me know, my Bot was most likely performing Task 2 or Task 3, without the diff I wouldn't know for sure. However tagging the page as underlinked would have been added as part of general fixes, this means that the problem lies with Auto Wiki Browser not specifically my BOT. If you let me know the pages and/or the diffs you or I could add a feature request to change the behaviour. Jamesmcmahon0 (talk) 12:47, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for March 10[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kayak, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Great Falls (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

About your bot[edit]

Your bot MoohanBOT added a WikiProject Biography to the article Basque Uruguayan, presumably because of a category that article is in. According to WP:BIOG only articles about individuals are within the scope of the WikiProject. I'm not sure if the article is miss categorised or if the problem is with your bot, but I'd have a look at it if I were you. Thanks,  Liam987(talk) 00:02, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

The problem is that articles of this type, about an ancestry in a country, are normally in the category for people of that ethnicity. For example, Polish American is in Category:American people of Polish descent. I'm guessing your bot treats these articles as being biographies because they are in Category:People stubs.  Liam987(talk) 00:08, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
@Liam987: - Your above assessment is correct, that because it appears in Category:People stubs. I will look at using some other methods to weed out non-biog pages before allowing the bot to begin editing in the future. Jamesmcmahon0 (talk) 10:30, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
