AfC bot[edit]

Hi Petrb, User:ArticlesForCreationBot hasn't edited since 2013. Is it broken or just needs restarting? Bellerophon talk to me 19:47, 21 June 2014 (UTC)

Click 4 Support[edit]

I blanked the page Click 4 support because of WP:PROMOTION. I gave in-depth explanation (reproduced below, see also the (talk-)page history) of everything that is/was wrong with the page. I originally had this on the main page because it's promotion for a scam (if you're not convinced despite the explanation I gave, let me know) and I thought it would be worth providing a warning to the unwary in the mean-time. I am not sure how to have the page deleted properly and finally but I think that that is what needs to happen, ideally.

My original explanation:

I will be making some largely non-productive but certainly useful changes to this page for a number of reasons: References 1, 2 and 4 direct to advertisements and press releases written by an employee of Click4Support. These are not reliable sources in general, and especially not in isolation (and especially not when it seems quite likely that their author is also the chief page author). The article does not maintain neutral point-of-view. Note in particular: "leading", "big players", "big review posting websites". These are clearly attempts to recite the topic in to importance and not actually meaningful. Reference 3 is cited in support of a claim regarding positive reviews of Click4Support, but in fact leads to an empty page indicating the existence of no reviews at all. Reference 5 is cited in support of the notion that there are "few complaints". In fact there are many complaints, and a fair number of them identify Click4Support as a scam.
These are, I think we will agree, significant problems with the article. There is also the fact that Click4Support seems to employ spam-bots or human spammers to advertise on message-boards and fora - surely not the mark of a trustworthy business.
I will, therefore, be adding this information to the main page as well as the talk page. I am sure that this is not perfectly appropriate in terms of Wikipedia as an encyclopedia, but I think it is quite important to make it quite clear to more credulous readers that the page has been used in a feeble attempt to advertise, and that they should not under any circumstances deal with this company. Somebody who is better suited to the task may want to deal with the issue in proper observance of Wikipedia's guidelines. I imagine that could involve removing the page or changing it to reflect the unscrupulous tactics of this company, and perhaps protection against future edits.

Hi Petrb re Brunhilde Pomsel[edit]

I think that Brunhilde Pomsel is a suitable topic for a page, simply for reasons of completeness in recording the minor characters of the era, also by virtue of her position as Goebbel's secretary & then by the extraordinary act of staying silent until 2011. Can you please tell me why it is not constructive & what I should do to improve? This is my first actual page so your feedback would be welcomed. Thanks, Princebuster5 (talk) 06:30, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, sorry but I don't remember I ever did anything with that page, why do you think I marked it so? Petrb (talk) 12:13, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

TheWinkleInstitute[edit]

This user has kept blanking out content from the article Eurozone crisis. Next time when you give warnings, check the contribs. Thanks! BTW I reported User:TheWinkleInstitute to AIV as he has constantly blanked out content.

PS I would have given a level 4im warning. PPS Thanks for reverting vandalism! 電子888說-TALK 07:49, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I have almost no idea what you talk about? Did I revert your edit or something? Petrb (talk) 08:02, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
No, just reminding you that that user should have been warned with a Level 4/4im warning template. He has also been blocked just now. You didn't revert my edit. Just advising you to check contribs before issuing warnings so that the appropriate level can be issued. No wrongdoing is implied. I just think it would be better that way, as the user's edits are mostly disruptive. Just keep this in mind next time :). 電子888說-TALK 08:18, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, but https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Bilaspur%2C%20Himachal%20Pradesh&diff=619095801 looks to me like a test edit, so it quite made sense for me to revert it. If you don't know how to edit, you can always try WP:Sandbox. Petrb (talk) 08:33, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

Talkback[edit]

Hi, I have remove information from the Red Cross Youth page because I have created a new wikipedia site specific to Singapore Red Cross Youth.

A new channel for wm-bot[edit]

Hi Petrb.

Would it be possible that your bot wm-bot joined to the IRC channel #wikipedia-es-tecnica? The participants and operators of that channel would like that it logged our conversations.

Regards, and thanks in advance. --abián 09:44, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Yes, everyone can do that, see manual, I inserted a bot but you need to tell me which users (+ their cloaks) should be on access list? Petrb (talk) 08:40, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, Petrb. Could you please add the expression .*@wikimedia/-jem- to the list of admins? From him, the most active founder of the channel, I suppose we will be able to set everything else. --abián 23:31, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Archivace na české wiki[edit]

Ahoj, viděl jsem, že na svojí diskuzní stránce na české wikipedii delší dobu neodpovídáš, tak tě radši kontaktuji tady :-)

Chtěl bych provozovat archivačního bota a chci se zeptat, jestli by ses podělil o své know-how z dob, kdy jsi ho provozoval.

Zkusil jsem pustit archivebot.py (pywikibot) na šablonu Archivace (jen simulaci) a vracelo mi to u všech diskuzí "Only 0 (< 2) threads are old enough. Skipping", i přesto, že jsem kontroloval, že se na diskuzní stránce thread splňující parametr stáří vyskytuje. Poradíš co s tím? Měl jsi svého bota nebo jsi používal pywikibota?

Díky za odpověď. --Wesalius (talk) 19:55, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Pouzival jsem pywikibota a byl to kekel z pekel, mel jsem si radsi napsat vlastniho :) kde mas toho bota ted? Je na labech? Petrb (talk) 21:20, 6 August 2014 (UTC)

Pouzivam shared core, muj tool se jmenuje hypobot.

Ahoj, dávám vědět, že jsme nakonec s JAnem na cs.wiki archivebota zase rozběhali. Chtělo to trochu trpělivosti, nahlašování bugů na bugzillu, použít vývojovou verzi některých části pywikibota...ale nakonec se to poddalo. --Wesalius (talk) 07:52, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Foreign-language new pages[edit]

Hi. Thanks for patrolling new pages, one of the most important tasks on WIkipedia; but when you meet a page in a foreign language, you should not tag it as a test page (or, worse, as "nonsense", which people sometimes do, which might well offend the newbie author). The way to deal with them is explained at WP:New page patrol#Dealing with foreign language new pages. Google translate showed that Francis jr maia was a non-notable autobiography in Portuguese, and I have speedied it per WP:CSD#A7 and left appropriate messages for the author.

There is a useful list at WP:PNT/T of messages, many of them bilingual like {{contrib-pt1}}, to point foreign-language contributors to their home WP. Many people don't know that any others exist. Regards, JohnCD (talk) 18:01, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks Petrb (talk) 18:42, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Islam and Sikhism[edit]

Petrb I am responding to the edit:

Responding to the edit: It is important that Wikipedia be a source of accurate information for the wider world of humanity. Hence it is important that we provide accurate information about religion so people gain a more stronger understanding of what the religion entails. As a Muslim I don't believe it would be best for me to say "Sikhism is this and that", only a Sikh is allowed to do that as he has lived his entire life as a Sikh hence knows his religion inside out. Similarly an engineer should provide answers that only a pharmacist would be able to tell as each person is specialised in his own branch of knowledge. Now I am Muslim, and as Muslims we know our religion better than any other non-Muslim out there. I want to tell you it extremely offends us when you say Prophet Muhammad(pbuh) was the founder of Islam because you imply that Islam did not exist before his time. Islamic belief is the Oneness of God, a supreme All-Mighty transcendent being, and belief in His Messengers. The belief of Islam regarding God has existed since the time of Adam, till Moses, in the children of Israel, Jesus (peace be upon them all) and finally Muhammad(pbuh) - at least according to the word of Muslims. The only difference with the advent of his prophethood is the replacement of the law of Moses with Qur'anic shariah law. So it is misinformation to the wider Wiki community to say he was the founder when in fact over 1 billion Muslims know he was chosen by God as the successor to the prophet Jesus (pbuh). This may not be your cup of tea you as you are a non-believer but I have chosen to write a neutral statement along the lines of as "Muslims believe Muhammad(peace be upon him) was the last and final Messenger of God, following a chain of prophets such as Moses, Jesus, Abraham, Solomon, Noah, David etc." I am going to change it back, and write a similar statement, please do not change it back. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.168.55.136 (talk) 23:51, 11 September 2014 (UTC)

Huggle 3[edit]

Peter, I've compiled Huggle 3 on Linux, 64-bit, with qt5. I'll give it some use, however I usually just revert bad edits; I shy away from the fancy stuff most of the time. I'll be sure to let you know if any issues pop up. I am r000t (talk) 22:32, 16 September 2014 (UTC)

Question about Huggle[edit]

Hi, first of all, thank you for your work on this tool.

I'd like to use Hugge to monitor my own watchlist rather than the recent changes. Could that be done?

Thanks in advance!.--Facu89 (talk) 22:52, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

This is a planned feature, but one really need a large watchlist for that to be effective, otherwise the queue would be pretty little. Petrb (talk) 14:26, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

I have lived in Connecticut my whole life, 50 Years, you don't even live here or in the United States for that matter, so how can you tell me what I can post in an article about my state and country  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.9.109.226 (talk) 15:18, 22 September 2014 (UTC) 

New Huggle Version[edit]

I'm about to go test out the new Huggle version right now. I'll let you know if I encounter any issues. Razorflame 16:35, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

The only thing I have an issue with is the zoom of the main window in Huggle. Because my screen is a 1920x1080 resolution screen, the main huggle window where you see the differences in is extremely small and fairly difficult for me to read. If there is any way you can make this auto-detect the resolution of the screen to make it big enough for everyone that uses it to be able to see the differences easily, that would be great :) Razorflame 23:04, 5 October 2014 (UTC)

You can change the size of font in preferences. 90.183.23.27 (talk) 07:05, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of User talk:Aquaprouae[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on User talk:Aquaprouae, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G11 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page seems to be unambiguous advertising which only promotes a company, product, group, service or person and would need to be fundamentally rewritten in order to become encyclopedic. Please read the guidelines on spam and Wikipedia:FAQ/Organizations for more information.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Enabling Huggle on another Wiki[edit]

Hello Petrb, I want to enable Huggle on this testwiki. The Reason is, that I want to change the Config in deWP, but before I do this, I must do some tests. Can you help me to enable this?

Hi, yes I don't know which OS you have, on linux you would do:

IMPORTANT: beta cluster has no SSL so you need to uncheck SSL on login

mkdir /tmp/huggle-beta
huggle --chroot /tmp/huggle-beta -v
  • now click in huggle on reload button and exit it
  • open /tmp/huggle-beta/Configuration/huggle3.xml and change GlobalConfigurationWiki to meta.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/
  • run huggle --chroot /tmp/huggle-beta -v
  • click reload button
  • now huggle will connect to beta wikis

An editor called legacypac has been undoing my contributions stating that it was copied word for word from source .Ok I agree that this is a violation, instead of modifying it and putting it into his own words, he removed it showing that this user does not want to work in a constructive manner and is lazy perhaps.This user directed a serious of personal attacks towards me and many other editors like update stormtrooper .[1].I ask you to advice the user.Absolution provider 1999 (talk) 13:47, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Talkback[edit]

Hi Petrb, I'm Stuner0. You recently reverted my [change] to this article because you didn't deem it "constructive". I agreed with the users in the [[2]] that it would be best to create a separate category for Switzerland (as it's absolutely not a Presidential Republic) and so I changed it. Can you explain, why you disagree?

Hi, it seems that I have mistaken it with some content removal. Petrb (talk) 16:02, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

Speed deletion of Vladimir Beba Popovic article[edit]

This article should not be speedily deleted for lack of asserted importance because Vladimir Beba Popovic is a director of Public Policy Institute, organisation that operates in Serbia, Montenegro and Slovenia. He is a public figure in this countries and we have his biography on Serbian and Bosnian languages and we are translating it on more languages (Spanish, German, Italian, Slovenian...), so we wanted to have his biography on English too. Do you maybe need more external links or something, that can confirm that he is significant figure in our country (Serbia)? Best regards, Milicevic Aleksandra (talk) 08:37, 29 January 2015 (UTC)
