Tagging for WikiProject Chicago[edit]


After a bot request by TonyTheTiger a member of Wikipedia:WikiProject Chicago I'll start tagging pages for the project based on a list they created. The WikiProject has been notified and there was positive response: Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Chicago#Tagging_request_notice. -- Magioladitis (talk) 15:14, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

Task completed. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:39, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

You've been mentioned on User talk:TonyTheTiger#Yobot adding Project Chicago tags. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 18:49, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

WikiProject Pop music banner tagging[edit]


I would like to request the bot to tag all articles under the category for Pop music including its subcategories. Thanks in advance! Erick (talk) 20:35, 28 June 2014 (UTC)

Erick no problem as soon as you follow instructions User_talk:Yobot#New_rules_for_WikiProject_tagging_via_Yobot (I'll put them in my bot's main page soon). -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:27, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
I got the approval on the WikiProject talk request as required. (see my request at WP:BOTREQ). I am confused about rule #4 though. So I can't request categories that have subcategories to be tagged? Erick (talk) 23:07, 28 June 2014 (UTC)
Erick yes, I need you that you give me the list of all subcategories that you want to be tagged. I am sorry for that but this is because the category tree is most probably broken and you'll have to check it. In the past with my bot got blocked for tagging irrelevant pages that were loaded due to broken category tree. I need to minimise the risk. -- Magioladitis (talk) 05:32, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Let me see if I got this right:

Is this correct? Erick (talk) 21:26, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. The important thing is the following: Are there are "weird" categories that they should not' be tagged? Did you check and everything is safe to start? -- Magioladitis (talk) 07:41, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
Let's see, I removed "Books about pop music" because most of them focused on popular music rather than the pop music genre. Same thing with Pop music television. I'd have the bot ignore the subcategories under "Pop music record labels" as it contains artists signed under these record labels but may not be identified as a pop singer. That's all I've got. EDIT: Ignore this category: Gershwin Prize recipients. Edit 2: Quick questions, will it inherit the class rating and will it ignore talk pages already tagged under the project banner? Erick (talk) 08:56, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Magioladitis: Is there anything else that needs to be done or is it all set to go? Erick (talk) 04:49, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

Erick I would like the list of the categories posted somewhere. Giving me the category list and asking me to remove some of them won't work. I know this by experience. See my talk page. It is full of complains about broken category trees. -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:42, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
For instance, loading only the first category tree gave me 40,074 results. -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
I apologize, but I'm not understanding what you said. Also, I've been thinking of getting just pop artists tagged because sometimes they might record albums or songs not classified as pop and it can avoid bot mistaggings. Erick (talk) 17:49, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Erick Are you sure that every page in every subcategory of cat "Pop music by nationality‎" should be tagged by my bot? -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:13, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
I'd rather just go with Pop musicians instead. Erick (talk) 18:21, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
Erick Pop musicians with no duplicates has 15,425. I'll post the categories affected before starting tagging. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:45, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
15,219 new tags are expected in 680 categories. I posted in WikiProject's talk page and in BOTREQ page to ensure that there are no objections. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:54, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Thank you very much Magioladitis, I appreciate the help. Erick (talk) 18:56, 8 July 2014 (UTC)

Erick Task completed. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:54, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Again, thank you for lending a hand with the bot Magioladitis. Erick (talk) 23:15, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

What are these edits?[edit]


See here and here The former just seems unnecessary but is the latter even accurate? Imagine if every MiLB farm team had a tag for every MLB team with which it's been associated... Is that what we want? —Justin (koavf)TCM 17:49, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Koavf, "don't kill the messenger" is somewhat accurate in this case. You are complaining to the wrong person. See talk message above entitled, "Tagging for WikiProject Chicago". Bgwhite (talk) 17:59, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

Koavf, Bgwhite In 2 cases (so far) out of 4865 tagged, the banner was removed, but it is not my fault. I implemented Wikipedia:Bot_requests#WikiProject_talk_page_tagging following the rules established. I think the false positives came better than I expected judging by the other bot requests that I can still not run due to the increased number of false positives. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:15, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

I remember Kumioko tagging talk pages with WP United States on anything with the word "America" in it. Ahhh, the good old days. Bgwhite (talk) 18:45, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
Bgwhite I think this has to do entirely with what the WikiProject thinks it concerns it. The WikiProjects rights remain unclear in many cases. What will we do if a WikiProject decides that every single page is under its scope? This is not a rhetorical question. I do not know the answer. I recall WikiProjecr redirects tagging every single redirect at some point in the good old days. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:51, 4 July 2014 (UTC)
@Bgwhite: Did kumioko changed {{WikiProject United States}} to {{WP United States}}. OccultZone (TalkContributionsLog) 00:53, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
OccultZone. I didn't know about {{yo}}. Thanks for the laugh. I don't recall Kumioko doing that and I highly doubt that he did. He usually converted WP -> WikiProject. He did add listas to {{WikiProject United States}} for biographies for a bit, which didn't need to be done. If listas is set in WP Biography, all other banners use that value. Bgwhite (talk) 06:48, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks That makes sense. —Justin (koavf)TCM 02:22, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks everyone for commenting. -- Magioladitis (talk) 07:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Historic houses taskforce tagging[edit]


Hi Yobot. I made a request at Wikipedia:Bot requests#WikiProject taskforce tagging. Can you help? --ELEKHHT 03:01, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

@Elekhh: Hi. As I see at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Architecture/participants you are a member of the WikiProject. Can you please post, if you have not done already, at the WikiProject's page that you requested this task? Then, if there are no disagreements for 3 days, I'll start tagging. This is just to ensure that there is consensus for this request. I would also help if I was given the exact categories in which the bot will run. Thanks, Magioladitis (talk) 07:06, 5 July 2014 (UTC)

Done. -- Magioladitis (talk) 21:49, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

AFD multi does not go at the top[edit]


You are moving the AFD multi template from its correct position after the Wikiprojects to the top of the talk page. Example [1]. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Administrator instructions#Carrying out the AfD close. SpinningSpark 12:18, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Spinningspark it is a history template so yes per WP:TPL it goes above WikiProjects. I can run my bot and fix the placement if you achieve a clarification in the WP:TPL talk page. Thanks. -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:21, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I am starting the suggested thread to try to resolve. SpinningSpark 12:38, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:56, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

University College of Engineering, Nagercoil[edit]


May I know what you have edited in University College of Engineering, Nagercoil??????

I couldn't find one.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Nibaji (talkcontribs) 08:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Nibaji: Yobot simply changed an external link to a Wikipedia article to a wikilink - see this diff. GoingBatty (talk) 12:30, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

Dezso d’Antalffy[edit]

Hi! Error. Tambo (talk) 06:24, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Tambo:} Could you please specify what part of Yobot's edit you think was in error? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 17:16, 14 July 2014 (UTC)
(talk page stalker) It merged two pairs of refs in this edit. It looks like it was properly done and the refs, though more notes than refs, look OK, but that version of the page is generating citation errors over those particular refs (scroll to the end). Very odd.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 17:52, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Tambo, GoingBatty, JohnBlackburne there was an unbalanced ref in the page. -- Magioladitis (talk) 19:01, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Please change all articles in Category:Australian athletes at the World Championship in Athletics to Category:Australian athletes at the World Championships in Athletics NickGibson3900 (Talk - Cont.) 03:36, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

OK. Doing it. -- Magioladitis (talk) 05:14, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Bug in punctuation / ref swaps[edit]


Hello there, if the bot is going to swap punctuation, please make sure it follows the whole string of ref/rp/efn (etc.) and get to the beginning of the reference list before moving the punctuation. The bot has just swapped a period to the middle of a string of references, which looks silly and it’s counter-productive. (The point of bot swaps is to reduce human work, no? Now I have to go through the article and fix your mistakes.) If the bot can’t do this properly then please don’t attempt the swap. Thank you very much!—Al12si (talk) 10:26, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Al12si thanks for the report and for moving the punctuation in the correct place. It's a difficult situation of 3 references where the one in the middle is given by inline citation. I'll see if there is something we can do to avoid something similar in the future. -- Magioladitis (talk) 10:56, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I sometimes feel that just getting someone to change the editor to put an instruction there might even be a more effective solution. Both ways feel logical so I often forget which way we’re supposed to go (and in some situations the “wrong” way is more logical than the “standard” way). We’re just confused :)—Al12si (talk) 11:05, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Al12si it was a perfect report! Two bugs in one! I added coverage for {{rp}} and now I can also handle cases of series of references given by tags and footnotes in a mixed way! Thanks!!!

rev 10319 fixes it. Check yourself -- Magioladitis (talk) 11:13, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Awesome! Thanks Magioladitis!—Al12si (talk) 11:28, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
