Mark global renames as done[edit]

Requested by xeno. Will look into it today hopefully Legoktm (talk) 20:59, 13 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Legoktm. With the global renamer usergroup rolling out soon this would be great to have. –xenotalk 01:39, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
@Xeno: now implemented in the code, it'll look like [1]. Legoktm (talk) 07:19, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks muchly. I'll test it soon I gather. –xenotalk 09:56, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
  • Hmm, is this code live yet? It didn't mark this one: [2]xenotalk 13:23, 4 September 2014 (UTC)
    @Legoktm:? –xenotalk 18:12, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
    maybe i was impatient, or you fixed it. either case, thanks! –xenotalk 15:43, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
  • @Legoktm: it works sometimes but not always. 1 of 3 it marked here: [3]xenotalk 12:44, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Hmm, I haven't touched the code since I last commented here. I'll try to take a look over the weekend. Legoktm (talk) 18:51, 12 September 2014 (UTC)
Legoktm Any progress on this? [4]xenotalk 18:23, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

RfC tag removed from Talk:Champagne Charlie (play)?[edit]

How was that tag expired when I had just put it up today? Aristophanes68 (talk) 01:19, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Aristophanes68: Assuming that you mean this edit, it's because the very next timestamp was 23:43, 2 October 2008 (UTC). As far as the bot was concerned, the RfC closed nearly six years ago. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:27, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
I added a comment to a discussion that was started years ago but had never been resolved, and I didn't think we needed to create a new thread on it. Where should I have put the RfC to not confuse the bot? Aristophanes68 (talk) 13:36, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Personally, I would have added a level 3 heading, and started the RfC below that:
Evidence about the existence of a play seems to be hard to come by. ...
:The "popular actor" George Lemon, ...
::Lemon would just be a character's name anyway, as a stand-in for Leybourne. ...

===RfC on the existence of a play===
Is there any evidence for the existence of ... ~~~~
In this way, it's also clear that the two comments from 2008 were not made as part of the RfC, but are background information to the new RfC. --Redrose64 (talk) 15:40, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks--that's helpful to know for next time. Aristophanes68 (talk) 16:57, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Maths problem[edit]

Hi User:Legoktm,

Legobot is struggling with RFCs. Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Maths, science, and technology begins with the link to Talk:Artificial intelligence, but then gives the description from Talk:Metacompiler (with no link to that page). Please take a look when you have a moment. WhatamIdoing (talk) 19:08, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @WhatamIdoing: The |rfcid= were identical - this is what caused the error, because they must be unique. I am certain that the one on Talk:Metacompiler was the incorrect one, because it was set in this edit by Steamerandy (talk · contribs). I suspect that the {{RFC}} was copied from Talk:Artificial intelligence without blanking or removing the |rfcid=. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:06, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing it. While you're here, would you mind taking a look at the RFC formatting on artificial intelligence? One of the users is convinced that the "question" ought to be replaced by his complaint about the actual question. WhatamIdoing (talk) 23:08, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
@WhatamIdoing: Ah. I guess you've not connected the RfC at AI with WP:VPM#Help with a difficult editor then. See also User talk:Redrose64#Could you assist?. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:39, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

WP:CHUS clerking[edit]

The bot hasn't edited WP:CHUS for a few hours. Could you get the issue checked out? Thanks :) --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 01:46, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Probably due to [5]. Whenever the issue is fixed, the bot will automatically start clerking again. Legoktm (talk) 04:51, 11 October 2014 (UTC)

Triggering Legobot on a GAN[edit]

Hey, I reviewed Yelp and passed it while the labs server was on fire. I think Legobot has started back up but hasn't updated the talk page or the article. Is there a way to tell it to run through that nom or is it kosher for me to add the review oldid and put the little plus on the article page? Thanks. Protonk (talk) 15:23, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

RFC not listed[edit]

Talk:Epilepsy has an RFC that hasn't been assigned an id number and isn't listed on the correct category page. RFC pages haven't been updated for a couple of days. Can someone take a look? WhatamIdoing (talk) 02:04, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

The ID number was assigned with this 08:00, 13 October 2014 edit. Searching through the bot's edit history finds that the previous RFC ID addition was with this 16:00, 10 October 2014 edit. That does seem like a long interval between RFC additions. While the bot account was making edits, it appears that this particular bot program was down, or was there something in the data that was causing the program to get hung up before it made any edits? Wbm1058 (talk) 14:46, 14 October 2014 (UTC)


What's up with all the action regarding Talk:Eskimo in this edit history? Wbm1058 (talk) 01:58, 14 October 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Wbm1058: It was an invalid value in the first positional parameter of {{rfc}}. These edits by WhatamIdoing (talk · contribs) should have fixed it. --Redrose64 (talk) 07:56, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
No, strike that. Waid did fix a problem, but it was not the problem. The problem began when Elvey (talk · contribs) added this section to WP:VPP, which Legobot assumed was an actual RfC and not the pointer to one; it then made this edit. I've made this edit and also this one just in case. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:14, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
@Wbm1058: And there you go. BTW it's pointless making manual edits to bot-updated pages like Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Unsorted because the bots don't look at what's already on the page - they rebuild the page from scratch according to what they think should be there. This is actually a useful anti-vandal feature. --Redrose64 (talk) 09:03, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, as the operator of two of Hare's bots myself, I am aware that my reverts of the bot's edits will be futile if the underlying problem isn't fixed. I too corrected a user error, which was causing spurious line items over at WP:RM. Clearly template:Rfc could use some better user error checking logic. We still haven't solved why every edit summary since March at Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Unsorted includes "Removed: Talk:Eskimo". That page was added by this January 29 edit. It was removed by this February 28 edit. And it keeps getting "removed" by every edit since then. Feb. 28 happens to be the last day of the month—except in leap years. I don't know whether that might have anything to do with it. – Wbm1058 (talk) 14:08, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
Let's see what it makes of this edit. --Redrose64 (talk) 19:24, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
The bot was not successfully closing this RfC, which I just manually closed. – Wbm1058 (talk) 22:18, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
