How odd[edit]

I saw your AWB edit on the Moon article [1] in which you merely removed a space after a period (nothing visibly changed) and I was about to report you for using AWB for insignificant edits, because as far as I know it is against a rule or something. It turns out you're an administrator :)

I've just started using AWB. I'm still learning how to use it, but it seems really useful, indeed. Cheers Tetra quark (don't be shy) 02:56, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Tetra quark this kind of kind is better not to be done but I arrived to Moon due to this weird c:// in its source code. then I wanted to exclude the page from my to-do list. -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:04, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Question about a Yobot edit[edit]

Regarding this Yobot edit, with edit summary "WP:CHECKWIKI error fixes using AWB (10479)"

Thanks, Wbm1058 (talk) 18:10, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Wbm1058 hi. "10479" refers to AWB's code revision used. It helps me and other to check whether a reported bug has already been fixed or not. I'll check the slow edit war reported and I'll, hopefully, come back with some answers. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:02, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Commons name[edit]


I see Yobot changing the names of commons categories to the page name, - I think that is not informative. Any reader knows the page name, - it would be more interesting to know that the commons cat is different. I have been advised against easter egg links. Clicking on Inkpot Madonna, finding Tintenfassmadonna seems like one. (I changed that one.) Forgive me if that is a perennial question. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 12:12, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Gerda Arendt Yobot only replaced the pagename magic word with the actual name. It's on editors' (plural) side to fix these properly. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:13, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I see, so I need to find out who writes the magic name? --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:17, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Gerda Arendt here's your guy. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:18, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Seen, thanks, --Gerda Arendt (talk) 14:19, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

The bot is changing back something unrelated, unconnected and inappropriate.[edit]


The bot(Yobot) and I are having a disagreement

Yobot and I are going back and forth on an article of history that I am editing with all the estd facts along with giving appropriate references. Let me explain -- there are two kind of "Rohilla" community ironically of same name, one belongs to "Hindu" religion and other to Muslim. Yobot is mixing the facts related to latter into former.

In January 1774, Hastings ordered a brigade of the Company army, under the command of Colonel Alexander Champion (d.1793) to proceed towards Oudh. Joined by forces from Oudh on 17 April, the brigade invaded the Rohilla territory. The combined force defeated the Rohillas on 23 April at Miran Katra. The death of Hafez Ruhmet, Rohilla leader, proved the war turning point. Later in July 1774, the British and the Vizir of Oudh marched to Fyzoolla Khan. For a jagir of Rs.75,000, the English bought out the segment of Rohilkhand he possessed. A treaty of 7 October brought the hostilities to a closing. The above is already there in Muslim Rohilla on Rohilla and on Third Battle of Panipat.

The above should not come in Hindu "Rohilla" community. The Muslim "Rohilla" are very famous in Indian history due to having a battle in history with British but the other is more significant Hindu community in India. It obviously creates chaos among others. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Friend.hey (talkcontribs) 13:02, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Friend.hey it's not the bot that changes the page's content. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:11, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Yobot putting reflist inside a succession box[edit]


Hi, with this edit, Yobot bypassed a redirect {{rail end}}{{s-end}} which was OK I suppose since other changes were made, but it proceeded to add a {{reflist}} above that {{s-end}}, which sqeezed the refs inside the succession box. Also, regarding this edit, after ignoring the page for a little over two weeks, Yobot has returned to previous behaviour. --Redrose64 (talk) 13:57, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Redrose64 on the latter: I thought we found a workaround by updating... {{update}}. Have not we? -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:09, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
I was under the impression that Slambo (talk · contribs) was working on that. --Redrose64 (talk) 14:13, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
Redrose64 I can try adding a parameter to update otherwise we will end up with 200+ pages having multiple categories in multiple places. To be honest I thought someone already has not that and that the categories were replaced by a parameter.

I'll also check the other bug. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:16, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

rev 10774 for the first bug by Rjwilmsi. -- Magioladitis (talk) 14:43, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

I think we need User:Frietjes help to create |rail= (or something) inside {{update}} which will populate the said category. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:36, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Another wild and crazy Checkwiki editor[edit]

It appears another mentally deranged individual has decided to indulge in self-harm. I dream of horses is this unstable individual. As past attempts to recruit unsavory personnel into our Arkham Asylum have failed, maybe a new approach is needed. Therefore, condolences in joining our house of horrors. I'm also writing here in case I dream of horses didn't want others to find out about their problem from their talk page.

Magioladitis and I really love anybody to join us. There are some Checkwiki errors that are faster to be run as a bot. There are other errors that have to be done manually. Some errors, Magioladitis usually "lets" me do and visa versa. Are there any errors you would like to do? Are there any questions? Any help we can give? Bgwhite (talk) 07:18, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

I tend to stick to errors that are considered by WPcleaner to be "top priority"; other than that, I just plan to switch between cleaning up Wikipedia and anti-vandalizing.
No questions so far. I just hope I'm not messing up! I dream of horses If you reply here, please leave me a {{Talkback}} message on my talk page. @ 07:21, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Need your help against unethical posts[edit]


Hi. I need your help on the below page and page like these List_of_educational_institutes_in_Rohtak.

In this page somebody has provided his contact number and is trying to get financial benefit, he has also projected his local coaching institute as some recognized colleges as some in the list.

If its part of vandalism then how should I report it on the name of authority so that you user does not revert it back. Should I send it to some admin? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Friend.hey (talkcontribs) 07:45, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

--Friend.hey (talk) 07:58, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Friend.hey I reverted these edits but remember that you can edit the pages too. -- Magioladitis (talk) 08:07, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

—Thats Okk, but what if the user again reverts back its bad comments. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Friend.hey (talkcontribs) 08:12, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

Help with AWB[edit]


Hi Magioladitis. I was looking at the manual for AWB and was trying to figure something out, perhaps you may be able to help me. I would like to be able to add a template to pages, and include a parameter of the template that uses the title of the page. I see how to add the template, and how to find/replace text. But I don't see how to include the title as a parameter for each page on the list. Is this something that can be done? thanks,  B E C K Y S A Y L E 12:57, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Becky Sayles: Try using {{subst:PAGENAME}} as the parameter value. See Help:Magic words#Variables and Wikipedia:Substitution for more information. Good luck! GoingBatty (talk) 18:59, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Strange edit to 2000s in the music industry[edit]


In Special:Diff/641129045/prev, you added a weirdly mangled duplicate of a paragraph with a strange {{context}} tag in the middle of it. Any idea what happened there? Anomie 00:32, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Anomie I retested my custom module and seems to work fine. Plain default settings do not affect the page neither. I have no idea how this happened since I did not notice anything strange the moment I was saving the page. Nothing similar has ever been reported. -- Magioladitis (talk) 02:24, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
Anomie Some F&R leftovers to my initial settings file caused that. It was never used widely because I then created the custom module. I think everything is fixed now. Thanks for the heads up. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:49, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Insignificant AWB edits[edit]

You appear to be violating the Rules of Use for AWB (rule 4) with your series of edits that change template "official" to "official website". Please stop this series of edits. Tewapack (talk) 23:56, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

It's a preparation for a bot moving data to wikidata and simplifying templates in English wikipedia. -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:38, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Dany Bahar[edit]


Hi Magioladitis – I saw Yobot had been by the Dany Bahar article and flagged it for no internal links. I've now resolved this. Thanks. HOgilvy (talk) 11:06, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

HOgilvy thanks. I removed the tag. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:48, 21 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Magioladitis. HOgilvy (talk) 11:48, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Re: Special Article Templates[edit]

Yeah i noticed, and i stopped it since two weeks i Think. But i noticed that the FA/FL templates for portales and lists are still not added by bots? So i added them manually. Is it correct or they are added as well?--باسم (talk) 11:40, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

باسم Dexbot started fixing everything now. Everything will be done by bots now. Thanks for the kind message. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:47, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

AWB 10783 ("leanup") + Sheldon Silver[edit]

Hi Magio!

re diff, 2 questions:

  • a number of your edits around that time with similar edit summaries were userspace sandboxes. did you intend to also include mainspace? in this case what was the purpose if your edit?
  • what does leanup mean? should be cleanup?

thanks! --Jeremyb (talk) 15:16, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

P.S. how are the hot dogs over there? how many can you eat at once?? --Jeremyb (talk) 15:16, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

Jeremyb nice hearing from you! Yes, it was supposed to be "cleanup". I thought it was "cleanup" and it was some font problem that I could not see the first letter of my edit summary. I fixed this at some point. I was supposed to clean only pages in user space. This page was converted back to old syntax after I have cleaned it from all articles. I quick check says that this was my sole mistake in this series of edits. Thanks for the heads up! After cleaning some thousands of pages I guess 1 mistake is expected. :)

The hot dog contest was awesome. I never figured out how the do it that fast. What happened to our hero? It seems he switched to tacos. Haha. -- Magioladitis (talk) 19:29, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

AWB not working on certain wikia urls[edit]

Hi, Magioladitis!

I wanted to pop in and mention that AWB apparently isn't functioning on wikia urls that don't have "" in them - I've been attempting to work with wowwiki and receive the "ApiErrorException in ApiEdit.CheckForErrors" error.

I'm using the custom field for the url, and even tried using wikia's alternate url for the site (; quite expectantly the latter didn't work, but tried anyway. I'm using the latest version of the program as well.

Just wanted to let you know! Thanks ;) (talk) 16:56, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Orphan flag page Valerie Muzzolini Gordon[edit]

Hello Magioladitis, I don't understand why you think my page is an orphan. It has links to all sorts of wikipages, and reference links to other websites. Please let me know what you believe I need to add. Thanks PINKESTGIRLOHYEAHPinkestgirlohyeah (talk) 20:56, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Pinkestgirlohyeah: Please see the left-hand margin, where you will find a link named "What links here"; and see WP:ORPHAN, which is concerned with a lack of inward links. Contrast this with WP:DEADEND which is concerned with a lack of outward links. --Redrose64 (talk) 22:40, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Request to restore section heading and redirect article name to Legality[edit]


This has reference to this change made by yobot. Please also refer to Talk:Principle_of_legality#concept_of_.22_Legality_.22_needs_a_separate_article_.3F_or_move_back_to_Legality this and User_talk:Lowellian#request_to_move_the_article_heading_Principle_of_legality_to_former_name_Legality. To best of my openion article name Principle of legality needs to be redirected to heading Legality and not viceversa Principle of legality comes under broader concept of Legality. At the same time as far as legal terminology is concerned term Principle of legality is bit different than normally expected usual meaning by lay reader so Principle of legality needs to be under separate section heading and not as part of the main lead. Yobot has deleted section heading and merged it top lead where as to my openion either Principle of legality should go under a separate section heading or we have a separate article for legality to give better justice to both the subjects.

Thanks and Regards Mahitgar (talk) 10:14, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Yobot tagging request[edit]

Hi Magioladitis! I would be very happy if you could help me with project tagging for a task force; I've added a request at WP:BOTREQ. jonkerztalk 16:05, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Frederic Wehrey[edit]

Hi, you fully protected this article indefinitely because of sock puppetry. I believe we've caught and blocked all the puppets, so I think we can remove the protection. Another option is to change it to semi for a limited period of time, which would catch any newly created accounts.--Bbb23 (talk) 18:12, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

Bbb23 I switched to semi-protection for 1 week. Then it will be again unprotected. Thanks for the heads up because I never intended to fully protect indefinitely. I must forgotten to set a date so it's good someone noticed. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:53, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I noticed only because I'm mildly curious about the AfD. I blocked all the accounts after an SPI. Ironic that it looks like the article will be kept. The person didn't even have to be so disruptive and still could have accomplished his objective. I'm going to remove a couple of the tags from the article as they no longer apply (the article has been cleaned up by others).--Bbb23 (talk) 19:11, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Bbb23 everything is weird with this page and that guy. He kept adding material, gets reverted and then requests permission to delete stuff from the page. - Magioladitis (talk) 19:20, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
Hard to say how people like that think, but my guess is if he couldn't get his way as to how the article should be written, he would get angry and ask for deletions.--Bbb23 (talk) 19:23, 26 January 2015 (UTC)


Please can you block me for the next 2 hours while I take a WikiBreak, as I dont think ill be able to without it Zafiraman Lets talk about it 22:43, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

Zafiraman done but this made me laugh because nobody ever have requested me something similar. -- Magioladitis (talk) 00:17, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
