Not working on Template talk:Infobox body of water[edit]

Legobot isn't archiving Template talk:Infobox body of water. Can you help, please? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:41, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done (talk page stalker) It was not archiving because that page was not, and appears to never have been, configured to have archiving performed on it. I have added a configuration set to archive threads older than one year. In addition, I have added a signature to one thread which did not have a date-stamp. — Makyen (talk) 17:30, 30 May 2014 (UTC)
@Makyen: Thank you. I did check, and that page had {{User:HBC Archive Indexerbot/OptIn|target=/Archive index|mask=/Archive <#>|leading_zeros=0|indexhere=yes}} (which I see you modified); it was the documentation for that template that led me here.

I understand; it can be confusing.
The {{User:HBC Archive Indexerbot/OptIn}} tells Legobot to index the archives. The task to do this, Task 15, is effectively defunct with only one run in the last year (10 December). It is unclear when, if ever, it will become working. LegoBot does not actually perform archiving. However, it has done so a couple/few times as specific runs during the time between the MiszaBots becoming defunct and User:lowercase sigmabot III (lcSB3) taking over the task. I modified the configuration for it mostly because I have the set of three templates {{Archives}}, {{User:MiszaBot/config}}, and {{User:HBC Archive Indexerbot/OptIn}} as one of my sticky copy-and-paste selections. I know they work and work together. [I have it on my list of things I am planning to do to create substitutable templates to make putting an archive config on pages easier. However, I have failed to get it done. I will try to look at it this weekend.] The set I use is effectively a grouping of the configurations which I have put on Help:Archiving a talk page#Automated archival. That page has more description of setting up archiving and several cut-and-paste examples.
The {{User:MiszaBot/config}} template is the actual configuration for lowercase sigmabot III which is one of two archiving bots currently in general use. The other is ClueBot III. Help:Archiving a talk page provides more information about them, some of their differences, etc. — Makyen (talk) 18:19, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

FFAC should not replace GA status[edit]

this edit suggests that an article loses its GA status when it fails at FAC. Please fix this and check for similar errors.--TonyTheTiger (T / C / WP:FOUR / WP:CHICAGO / WP:WAWARD) 23:50, 1 June 2014 (UTC)

Patch for Legobot bug - votes included even when separated by a section mark.[edit]

this edit was an attempt to correct two errors by Legobot. But it reverted me. My edit summary is:

rm votes included due to lack of section mark. Legobot didn't catch up, even when fixed

I had noticed that a page the extracted text came from now had a section marker (=== Support === ) or something like that, and figured that Legobot would surely not copy past a section marker, but it does. It looks like it copies 'till it sees something that looks like a signature. I suggest it be enhanced to copy only 'till it sees something that looks like a signature or a section break. I'm lost; which task is performing these edits to WP:RFC anyway? I read through the 28 task descriptions and none seemed to match! Can't find it in github either; tried a few searches!! [edit: I may have found it. Is this it? Looking at L205, L209 - maybe the author thought this was a feature not a bug?]--{{U|Elvey}} (tc) 04:07, 4 June 2014 (UTC)

@Elvey: Legobot looks for a timestamp. The initial RfC proposal - the bit before the first !vote - should be signed with either four or five tildes. This timestamp not only marks the end of the text that is copied to Wikipedia:Requests for comment/Wikipedia policies and guidelines but is also used to determine the start of the RfC process - the expiry is thirty days after that. See WP:RFC#Request comment on articles, policies, or other non-user issues point 3. --Redrose64 (talk) 08:23, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Yup, I guess that's line 209, that I mentioned, that looks for a timestamp. Thanks.
I still don't know: which task is performing these edits to WP:RFC? Please document this at User:Legobot [edit: The BRFA is here? I added some (crude) documentation. ]
Here's a possible fix: Add this after L210:
$description = preg_replace("'''\n\n.*", "", $description); // truncate at start of section header
here is a patch with a long comment. --{{U|Elvey}} (tc) 15:38, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
Any followup on the patch I provided?--{{U|Elvey}} (tc) 08:46, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
