"Unofficial tool" broken[edit]

The unofficial standings tool is broken. It appears to be treating this as the final round of the competition and thus is showing one winner & one runner up instead of the proper number of people moving on to the next round. Not quite sure who to contact to get it fixed. --ThaddeusB (talk) 15:26, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

@Jarry1250: Was that your tool? Josh Milburn (talk) 16:13, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about that. The bot was screen-scraping for "Pool" at one point, which kinda spiralled into the problem Thaddeus saw (they're now called "Groups"). Should be working now. - Jarry1250 [Vacation needed] 20:23, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
That was my bad - I changed it due to a simple preference and didn't realise it would affect the bot. Miyagawa (talk) 17:21, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Withdrawing Vinethemonkey[edit]

Yeah, I'm way too busy to actually participate in the competition. Please withdraw me from the Wikicup. I want to stay subscribed though! Vinethemonkey (talk) 18:51, 31 March 2015 (UTC)Vinethemonkey

Sorry to hear that, I'll withdraw you now (also sorry for the delay!), and I hope to see you again next year. :) Miyagawa (talk) 07:45, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

DYK points[edit]

I wonder why I only got 5 points for S.A.S. v. France which is a very long article. Could it be because I forgot to link to the article when I added it to my competition page (I only added the DYK template). Iselilja (talk) 19:34, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

That was probably it. Now you've added the article itself, the bot should update it. Miyagawa (talk) 20:34, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
It hasn't though. I added the article almost yesterday, but still no more points. Iselilja (talk) 18:02, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
When you removed the bonus calculation and forced the bot to re-evaluate, it fixed it. You've now got the addition 5 base points for length. Miyagawa (talk) 11:56, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Name change[edit]

Yesterday, I changed my name from "Caponer" to "West Virginian." Shall I continue to remain in the WikiCup competition as Caponer, or should I change my name here, too? I'll leave it up to the WikiCup administrators as I'm unsure of what the protocol is in this situation. Thanks! -- West Virginian (talk) 13:04, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

I can change the display, but the submissions page change will have to wait until the end of the round. Miyagawa (talk) 17:10, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
There you go, it now displays your new name. When I generate the following round, presuming you're in there, I'll create a new submissions page with your new name. Miyagawa (talk) 17:20, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Miyagawa, thanks for all your help and I appreciate your assisting me with this matter. I wish I had read this first before reverting my submissions page to West Virginian. You may to undo my redirect. I had just noticed it wasn't updating my total after a completed Good Article review. Thanks again, and I apologize if I've made a mess of things! -- West Virginian (talk) 02:59, 22 April 2015 (UTC)

Temporary solution to FP Bonus issue[edit]

@Godot13: @The Herald: I think we finally have a temporary solution to the issue of the bot not calculating the bonus points for the Featured Pictures. So, could I ask you to replicate what I've done on Wikipedia:WikiCup/History/2015/Submissions/Godot13 under the DYK section - adding the same article multiple times to generate the relevant number of bonus points. Admittedly it'll come up in the DYK column of the table, but it's better than not appearing at all. Also, if you could add comment tags like this: <!-- this type of comment --> to each batch of additions so that we can keep track of what points are linked to which picture. Miyagawa (talk) 20:52, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

@Miyagawa:- Will do, thanks for figuring out the temporary solution. Just to clarify-each time the code is entered counts as 5 points?--Godot13 (talk) 23:48, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
If I change the multiplier from none, will the value of the bonus change? That way one entry could account for a single image with a bonus of either 5, 10, or 15 points...--Godot13 (talk) 00:10, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for the solution. I don't think I have any bonuses to claim this time. ;) -The Herald the joy of the LORDmy strength 23:52, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
Godot, that's a good idea. Give it a go - if it works, then stick with it. Miyagawa (talk) 11:53, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Attempt submitted, we'll see when the bot updates...--Godot13 (talk) 17:54, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Seems like it didn't work - it only picked up five points from the first article. Miyagawa (talk) 22:54, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
I made a formatting error- an extra unattached multiplier script was inserted after the first entry. Let's try one more bot update and if that doesn't work, I'll do it longhand...--Godot13 (talk) 23:07, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Miyagawa- Not caught by the bot, re-submitted without multiplier combinations.--Godot13 (talk) 01:01, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
It ran, but it only picked up the first one, not the rest...--Godot13 (talk) 05:03, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Its probably programmed in the bot to avoid duplicates. @Jarry1250: Jarry, do you have any ideas about what we could do in the short term? Miyagawa (talk) 15:24, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
