I redid your alteration from samloem to sanloem. The name of the island is កោះរុងសន្លឹម Koh Rong Sanloem. There is, however a sizable ignorant community in Cambodia - even among the guest house owners on the island, who are barely able to write English - using Samloem among other variants. I presume you can't read or write Khmer. I have the whole subject explained here: at bottom of page. BTW it is spelled correctly on Google maps.

addition: Ochheuteal is the familiar way of spelling it - let me know, whether you need evidence

It was not Yobot that changed this page. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:56, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Incorrect additions of References section[edit]

Yobot adds a References section to any of the List of botanists by author abbreviation pages it edits. The section is already there in a footer template used to keep all the sublist pages consistent, and the added section is in the wrong order. Please stop it doing this! Peter coxhead (talk) 19:11, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Peter coxhead This practice is extremely discouraged. It does not allow other editors to add any links to the See also or External links section. It is also a "hidden section". Is it possible to break up your footer into two templates? One that only contains the see also links and the other only containing external links. Maybe Magioladitis knows a better way. Bgwhite (talk) 20:13, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
@Peter coxhead, Bgwhite: I removed the reflist section from the template. This will prevent page from showing to the list of pages without references section. References should be directly given into pages. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:31, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
There are only multiple pages for the list of botanists by author abbreviation because otherwise the page would be too long – conceptually this is a single page (e.g. there's a single navigation template) so the header and footer needs to be exactly the same on each "page". I see no reason in this case not to use a template. If you insist, I will split the footer template into two, but I really don't see why this should be necessary. Anyway, the bot needs to be stopped from interfering until this issue is settled (added reference sections are in the wrong place). Peter coxhead (talk) 06:27, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
I've given you reasons for not allowing Yobot to edit these pages. So please either explain why I'm wrong or fix it. Peter coxhead (talk) 08:19, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Peter coxhead hi. I excluded the pages from today's fix. (I hope I did!) I believe we should move references section out of the footer as we did in all other similar cases in the past in other series of articles. I believe Frietjes recalls similar cases. -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:22, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Henry Knox[edit]


Hi there. My name is Lyle Darrin and I'm a descendent of Daniel Darrin who fought in the battle of Flatbush under the command of George Washington. I'm pretty sure Henry Knox was there too and I don't see this historic battle in his wiki. I saw that you did the last edit so I thought I would bring it to your attention. My email is Can you please let me know if I'm wrong? Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:14, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

This is a bot's page. Please use WP:VILLAGEPUMP. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:55, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

2014 UCI Road World Championships[edit]


Hi, to let you know, I undid this revision because it removed wrong brackets in the infobox. Sander.v.Ginkel (talk) 07:27, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

Sander.v.Ginkel, Yobot did fix it wrong, but there still is a bracket problem in the article. I think I fixed it. Bgwhite (talk) 18:03, 3 September 2014 (UTC)
Page fixed. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:54, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Rosie Mercado[edit]


Hi, just to let you know for some reason Yobot appears to have twice incorrectly reverted the category Category:American fashion designers on the article Rosie Mercado, here and here. Tanbircdq (talk) 13:50, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Tanbircdq It's because category already exists. It was a duplicate entry. -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:53, 7 September 2014 (UTC)



What, how you wrote this Naruto: Clash of Ninja (series) is for the Wii U have the announcement in 2014 Incredicle. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:22, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

It was not me nor my bot. -- Magioladitis (talk) 12:20, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

ò > o?[edit]


The bot keeps changing the ò into o at the Default for the categories, see here. Can you please fix it? Thank you -- DonCalo (talk) 17:08, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

DonCalo per WP:SORTKEY DEFAULTSORT should contain no special characters. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:02, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Mironov Andrei Nikolayevich[edit]


Hello, it seems you've reviewed my article on my uncle Mironov Andrei Nikolayevich. You requested I added extra links, as the article is an "orphan", well Andrei wasn't mention in any wikipedia articles, just The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Independent and other sources I dutifully cited.

Your requests are impossible to fulfil. Does this mean that my uncle's wiki page will not be live?

Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sophia kayes (talkcontribs) 09:33, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

(talk page stalker) @Sophia kayes: Your uncle was mentioned in several Wikipedia articles. I've cleaned up the links and had my bot remove the {{orphan}} banner. I also changed the title of the article from Mironov Andrei Nikolaevich to Andrei Nikolaevich Mironov, as we put the first name first, and done some additional copyediting.
I suggest you read Wikipedia:Plain and simple conflict of interest guide, which states "Do not edit articles about yourself, your family or friends..." GoingBatty (talk) 23:55, 14 September 2014 (UTC)

Ugly and useless space[edit]

Hello. Can I ask you why you add a useless and ugly space between the categories and the stub templates while removing the nice and aesthetic space between the external links and the navigation templates? You should do the exact opposite to make articles look better! Cranellea (talk) 15:33, 13 September 2014 (UTC).

Cranellea check WP:IDEALSTUB. -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:20, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for your answer. However, the link you provide redirect to a section that does not answer my question. Could you please do? Cranellea (talk) 09:02, 14 September 2014 (UTC).
Cranellea Manual of Style says that stub templates should be placed after categories and with two newlines in between them. WP:STUBSPACING reads " It is usually desirable to leave two blank lines between the first stub template and whatever precedes it." If you provide me a link of what the bot did I can write you more. The bot only applies Manual of Style rules. -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:05, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
That's not true, M. Yobot has misunderstood the Manual of Style on the blank-line issue. The MoS says: "Include one blank line above the heading, and optionally one blank line below it." That means include blank lines between headings and text (and note: "optionally"). It does not mean include blank lines between headings and sub-headings. It makes no sense to do the latter, but that's what Yobot does (repeatedly, even when reverted, which violates the MoS). SlimVirgin (talk) 18:23, 15 September 2014 (UTC)
Forgot to ping Magioladitis. SlimVirgin (talk) 18:48, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

Problems on tagging for WikiProject Disambiguation and apologies[edit]

Due to some weird problem, most probably on API, when I tried to save a list of 1Mb to my sandbox I got a gateway timeout problem. The page looked OK, the html output was OK but when I tried to get info on the link on the page (only bluelinks) via AWB it grabbed the info from a previous revision of the sandbox. This resulted in a bad list. I realised within 20 minutes and reverted at about 300 edits. They still be some leftovers.

Second problem was the problem of dab page with talk pages that redirect to a non dab page. The bot did several edits and added banners to wrong pages. I fixed the code quite fast but there are certainly bad tags on pages. My apologies for that. I work on reverting the bad edits. Of course anyone is welcome revert edits on sight if they are the result of bad tagging. Thanks, Magioladitis (talk) 14:35, 16 September 2014 (UTC)
