Possible bug with the new version of the AFD closer[edit]

Howdy, I've been seeing a recurring issue with the new version of your AFD closer. When merging, if the source article talk page doesn't exist, it's created but the status message is stuck on "Tagging talk page(s)...". The script then says that everything is done without saying that all of the talk pages have been tagged. I'm using Chrome 42.0.2311.90 (Official Build) m (32-bit) on Win8.

Trying to track down the source of a stat - can you help?[edit]

Hi, I've been reading some archived discussions about the Autoconfirmed trial from 2011 and there was a statistic batted around a lot: 80% of all pages created by autoconfirmed users are deleted. I can't seem to find a source for that one, and it seems to have been linked to you. Do you by any chance know where that statistic came from, and if things have changed at all since then? Thanks!

That's probably from here. In that study, 12,600 users' first edit was to create an article and 10,225 had their article deleted (and of those, only 64 were still editing 6 months later). There's some additional data and more analysis on the talk page. Mr.Z-man 21:29, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

Wondering if we can get a popular page listing? Thanks Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:34, 6 May 2015 (UTC)

Possible flaw with AfD closer[edit]

As per WP:AFD/AI (see the keep section), on an AfD keep result, the {{Old AfD multi}} should be placed below WikiProject banners, however the script places it on the top of talk pages. Could you modify it so it places it below such banners? Thanks in advance. Esquivalience t 01:18, 13 May 2015 (UTC)

No. I tried, but unfortunately it's far more complicated than that and is totally impractical to implement in a script like this. Mr.Z-man 03:26, 13 May 2015 (UTC)
