AWB mistakes

  • Some AWB edits of yours on Sep 1 have been making changes inside quotations. Such as in History of Florida. Of course, we are supposed to leave quotations intact, regardless of their English or MOS rules. AWB is not safe in understanding what are quotes and does not bypass them. Hmains (talk) 04:45, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
    • Or change names of books, articles, etc Hmains (talk) 04:47, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
      • Three answers to this: firstly that MOS:QUOTE says "Trivial spelling or typographical errors should be silently corrected (for example, correct ommission to omission, harasssment to harassment)—unless the slip is textually important." so I see no issue with correcting decade apostrophes within quotes unless the quote is specifically about this kind of typography/date. Secondly, I don't believe there are any quality sources that would have an incorrect decade apostrophe in a page/article/book title. Thirdly, on this specific case, if you access [1] (this is the permanent link it gives, though it seems to redirect to the search page, so click browse, then next and volume 6 issue 2 is second in grid) and download the PDF then on page 34 of the PDF you'll see that the title uses "1920s" without the incorrect apostrophe. What's your source to say it's "1920's"? Rjwilmsi 09:28, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
        • OK, I understand. I was assuming that the WP editors copied the quote correctly. Not to be assumed it see. Still, I see lots of sources (quality or not, WP referencs them) in which book/article/whatever names are wrong in one way or another. Writers are not always careful or well-educated but I doubt anyone wants to be re-researhing all these names. Hmains (talk) 17:56, 2 September 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 3

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Paco Catholic School, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page St. Theresa's College (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Possibly out of date but here goes

Hi, I was wondering if you could train your esteemed bot to compare people birth and death dates when it populates persondata and check their age is not negative? ϢereSpielChequers 19:34, 22 September 2012 (UTC)

Here's data from the July 2012 database dump. It seems you've already fixed a number of these. I'll save the query and make it part of my persondata work to check for new occurrences. Rjwilmsi 12:37, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Typo profiling and long rules

I've been checking the results of profiling typos for List of Doctor Who universe creatures and aliens in typos.txt and noticed that sometimes certain rules are fast but on other occasions they are relatively slow i.e take 10 times longer then its fast time. The rules that have this erraticness are ones that are longer in construction. Is there some issue with long rules over and above the time it takes to execute them? I just wanted to check before I commit more time to creating highly effective rules that are long. Regards, Sun Creator(talk) 01:02, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Any ideas? Do you know who might know or who could find out? Regards, Sun Creator(talk) 23:52, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
Which rules show wide variations in speed? Is this within the same AWB session (i.e. same set of typo rules)? Rjwilmsi 07:04, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
The "self-" rule was the one I noticed, but there are others but not so varied at that one. It's the same rule, hasn't changed for a while now, and within the same session. I can imagine there is some background windows system process that happens at a point the rule is running but why it more often occurs on the "self-" rule is a mystery. Regards, Sun Creator(talk) 23:51, 26 September 2012 (UTC)
