ReferenceBot – JayJ47[edit]

Comment/question: Errors in referencing only appear when your bot makes its corrections to the specified page. If I have made any errors in referencing, please help me correct them. Thank you.

Unlike other bots, ReferenceBot never edits articles, it only notifies users of problems. That said, this indeed seems to be one of ReferenceBot's exceptionally rare false positives, one A930913 may want to look at. AnomieBOT indeed made matters worse by fixing only one of two names without quotation marks, but that's unrelated to the edit ReferenceBot notified you about. Huon (talk) 20:54, 11 July 2014 (UTC)


In this month, DefconBot has never changed the defcon level to 1 or 2, and it has been at 3 for a grand total of 8 hours this month. It's been at 5 for more than half the time. Isn't this a bit contradictory of the percentage level on User:DefconBot? Thanks, Lixxx235Got a complaint? 05:27, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

Further to this, DefconBot has not edited since midday 15 July. Can it be restarted or must we return to manual updates? BethNaught (talk) 16:02, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I noticed this as well. I think it's an effect of the decline of Wikipedia, coupled with the summer holidays starting. I ought to recalculate the boundaries, but this takes time as I've not made a one click button for it yet, and I don't have much time of recent. If someone else wants to calculate them, a CSV (datetime, mEPM, CVS, RPM) from April to now is available here. 930913 {{ping}} 16:18, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

"Categories: Wikipedians who have opted out of BracketBot messages"[edit]

Hello there. You're responsible for BracketBot? Great--thanks for making it. However, I do have one question. The documentation page says it creates "no visible output", but it does: my talk page now has a category at the bottom, and I don't want that category. Can you make it disappear? Thanks, and toodles, Drmies (talk) 16:57, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Done. The category was not added by the template. Huon (talk) 17:43, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
@Drmies: ReferenceBot and BracketBot, while both operated by A930913, are different bots and don't react to the same opt-out template, nor to the same opt-out category. ReferenceBot has an extremely low false-positive rate, so there's next to no chance of getting a message unless there is a genuine problem you may want to fix. BracketBot is much more prone to misinterpret things. Huon (talk) 17:40, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Huon, now I feel really stupid! But I'm also pleased, since a. ze problem is solved and b. I learned something. Thanks! Drmies (talk) 20:08, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

My drumline edit was deleted. Everything I posted was accurate. 1 Atlanta A&T University was based Clark Atlanta University and Morris Brown College. Both of which are part of Atlanta University Center. 2 both of which are HBCU universities and colleges respectively. 3 NC A&T is also an HBCU college and is where the name comes from. Sources: I was the drumline commander at my school and we had to learn all this as well as about other rival schools for the Honda Battle of the bands classic

  • No, your edit was not deleted (until just now): BracketBot only notified you of an incorrect bracket, that's all. For the rest, see your talk page. Drmies (talk) 01:35, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

BracketBot – Robinh[edit]

generalized Dirichlet distribution



I think this was a false positive because the edit was as intended. But I love the bot!

Robinh (talk) 01:50, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

This is indeed a false positive, and one the bot should have ignored: It's supposed to recognize the <math> environment and to ignore mismatched brackets (or at least mismatched <>) within that environment. A930913 will want to check that out. Huon (talk) 18:59, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Thank you, BracketBot! Yeah, there was an error and I corrected it. Anyway, I have created this article Draft:ACC Fast Track Countries Tournament. I have also provided necessary links related to this article. Will you please review it and approve the article? Looking forward to your reply.

There is currently a backlog of over 1,300 drafts awaiting review. Is there any reason yours is more urgent than the others? That said, all your references are links to the Asian Cricket Council's website, not independent sources. We need independent coverage to establish that this tournament is notable enough for an article. Huon (talk) 18:59, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

opt out not enabled?[edit]

He A93, could you point me to the discussion regarding opt out from your Reference bot notifications? L.tak (talk) 16:16, 23 July 2014 (UTC) L.tak (talk) 16:16, 23 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't think there ever was a formal discussion on ReferenceBot opt-out, but since that bot has a near-perfect record of avoiding false positives, it's highly probable you'll only get notified if one of your edits indeed caused a citation error of some kind. Huon (talk) 22:14, 23 July 2014 (UTC)
