Regarding SineBot:

I've reported your wrongdoings per your request[edit]

haai Slakr.

I hereby inform you about my reporting of your wrongdoings thereat as instructed by guidelines therefore writen and your request thereof via irc long~long ago in topics dealing with erronious afd closures resulting from your semi-understandable occupation with afd backlogs. (if not real world activities)

You don't have to do anything, I fully understand editors who don't dare poke the cold fusion article with a 6 foot pole(1828.8 mm) in order to protect the guilty. This is just here in order to fulfill involved technical requirements of such in order to make me look professional.

Have a nice day.

If you truly feel that my close was incorrect in this instance, you'll want to either register an account or sign in to your main account, then create a new DRV request. That one appears to have been summarily closed by another admin due to some apparent pre-existing drama/sanctions related to cold fusion topics as a whole. If you were accidentally editing while logged out, oversight might be able to help clean things up, though. --slakrtalk / 22:05, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Hey hello again!

Article splitting works like this:

  • WP:Split: The two main reasons for splitting material out from an article are size and content relevance. If either the whole article, or the specific material within one section becomes too large, or if the material is seen to be inappropriate for the article due to being out of scope, then a split may be considered or proposed. Consideration must be given to size, notability and potential neutrality issues before proposing or carrying out a split.
  • WP:POVFORK: POV forks generally arise when contributors disagree about the content of an article or other page. Instead of resolving that disagreement by consensus, another version of the article (or another article on the same subject) is created to be developed according to a particular point of view.

It is perfectly neutral to say the Pons and Fleischmann experiment is a sub topic of Cold Fusion.

It seems perfectly obvious to me but maybe you have questions? What makes this so complex that it has to take this much effort? Why couldn't anyone address the topic properly? WP:I don't like it is not a valid excuse. We have notability guidelines for that kind of thing. A skeptic consensus wont do. All of the long lists of comments that do not address the topic are examples of disruptive editing. If they would be constructive non-debunker editors they could be instantly banned for that. But that wont happen of course. I'm the bad guy for proposing something entirely sensible. Because I copied the exact text, that magically became a pov fork many months before. Read it again: I copy the exact text? This is now a pov fork? I'm not going to do anything in mainspace. I'm absolutely terrified by all this wikilawyering.

No way I could do anything right. Right?

No offense.

SineBot at Bengali Wikipedia[edit]

I've seen SineBot working so well in this wiki. So I was wondering that if you can make SineBot work in Bengali Wikipedia too? --Pratyya (Hello!) 13:57, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

"Preceding unsigned comment added by"[edit]

When Signbot adds a signature, why does it insert the text "Preceding unsigned comment added by"? It's unnecessary. Why should Signbot signatures look any different to manual signatures? If you believe signatures are useful, it's a shame to introduce noise.

To be sure, I think Sinebot is great, but it would be less intrusive if it added signatures quietly, without drawing attention to itself. That distracts from the actual content of the message being signed. Imho. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Matt me (talkcontribs) 22:24, 15 July 2014 (UTC)

SineBot on sister projects[edit]

Hi Slakr, I was wondering if it would be possible at all to create and run a version of this project's SineBot on the Manx language Wikipedia. The appropriate text would read as follows: "Va'n çhaghteraght gyn ennym roish shoh screeuit ec USER_ID". I understand you may have time constraints, but I would really appreciate it if this could be done. Thanking you in advance. Mac Tíre Cowag 12:51, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Requests for page protection[edit]

Wikipedia:Requests for page protection is listed at Category:Non-talk pages that are automatically signed but the bot does not appear to be signing things. For example this wasn't signed. The only reason I noticed was that it was the second day in a row. Cheers. CBWeather, Talk, Seal meat for supper? 09:26, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

some thing is wrong with my account or sinebot Comment[edit]

I think sine bot and my account both need to go for a checkup because, whenever i sign something, about 5 to 10 minuets later sine bot tells me i forgot to sign something. I always use my four tildes. whats happening.?

SineBot again dead[edit]

Per WP:AN#SineBot_is_dead_again, it looks like SineBot is again down. Last edit was at 13:56 UTC, approx. seven hours ago. Posting this because it seems no one has as of yet alerted you (unless they have off-wiki). AddWittyNameHere (talk) 20:45, 25 July 2014 (UTC)
