Mistaken fix to reference after punctuation in At Freddie's[edit]


In this edit [1] Yobot replaced a "<ref>text</ref>:" with ":<ref>text</ref>" per the style rules on references coming after punctuation. However, the colon here is not English punctuation but is instead wiki markup, part of a ";label:more text" construction. The reference is meant to be attached to the label, and thus must absolutely come before the colon.

Whether you want to make the obvious program fix that fails less often (don't correct the first colon after a new-line-starting semicolon) or just add At Freddie's to some exclusion list (but then leaving future flubs to human notice) is up to you.

Thank you for your attention. Choor monster (talk) 12:23, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Choor monster I think I found a solution now. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:00, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your fix, much simpler. I added an explanatory comment, since down the road someone else will "fix" your fix and all that. Choor monster (talk) 14:26, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Choor monster in fact the double dot is expected to be in a new line. Otherwise, it can be confused with a punctuation symbol. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:40, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
H:DL doesn't mention putting the colon on a line by itself. Choor monster (talk) 14:44, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Indeed, it's perfectly valid -

Congratulations on Yobot's recent milestone! How are you tracking Yobot's edits in comparison to other bots? Wikipedia:List of bots by number of edits/1–1000 hasn't been updated since June. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 00:07, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

GoingBatty Thanks! I checked Yobot's edit with edit counter and it has 4 million + 32,000 edits. Since Smackbot does not edit anymore I guess Yobot did more than 32,000 edits in the last 3 months and that it's now ranked #3. I think it's a good guess. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:14, 16 March 2015 (UTC)
ClueBot NG has 3.2 million currently. This makes it the fifth bot to reach 3 million edits. Cydebot is still on the lead with 4.7 million while WP 1.0 bot has 4.5 million edits. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:17, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

Demons (Dostoyevsky novel)[edit]

I reverted a change at Demons (Dostoyevsky novel) by Yobot because it mis-aligned the paragraphs. Harold the Sheep (talk) 00:07, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Harold the Sheep thanks for letting me know. I tried a different approach. Please check. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:16, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
That's great, thanks. Harold the Sheep (talk) 00:30, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

AWB on Mac[edit]

I'm wondering if you run AWB on a Mac. I'm running into issues with installion with Wine. --I dream of horses @ 07:05, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

Horses are nightmares, Wine and AWB have problems. I haven't been able to run it under Linux, but I haven't tried for atleast a year. I did run it under CrossOver. The downside it it costs a minimum of $40. There is a free trial available at their website. Parallels Workstation and VMware Fusion are also options. I have used Parallels in the past and really enjoyed it.
Several months back, Microsoft announced they will be officially supporting .Net for Mac and Linux. Hopefully, that will allow AWB to run on Macs and Linux. Bgwhite (talk) 08:53, 23 March 2015 (UTC)
Bgwhite, so in other words, using Huggle with Wine kind of spoiled me. Hopefully, one day AWB will be cross-platform and I won't have to use the in-browser AWB script. I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 21:35, 23 March 2015 (UTC)

delete two modules[edit]


could you delete Module:Solar eclipse/old/200 and Module:Solar eclipse/data/200 for me? the old page is no longer needed, and the redirect keeping the main module using 'Module:Solar_eclipse/db/200' directly. thank you. Frietjes (talk) 15:15, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

Frietjes done. -- Magioladitis (talk) 20:30, 24 March 2015 (UTC)


Yobot is substing Template:Infobox standard right now...but whenever the first line of the box is {{Infobox standard <!-- See Wikipedia:WikiProject_Songs --> it breaks! Dont panic.svg Eman235/talk 23:20, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

I am notified already. I am fixing them. -- Magioladitis (talk) 23:20, 24 March 2015 (UTC)
