VeblenBot down?[edit]

VeblenBot hasn't run since November 4, and there have been some updates since then. I've just manually removed Upanishads from the list of active GARs, both general and community-only—I closed it at 18:41 4 November 2016 (UTC), after the most recent run of the bot earlier that day at 13:32 UTC. There have been other changes that would have affected other VeblenBot-generated pages. Thanks for any help you can give to get the bot running again. BlueMoonset (talk) 21:26, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but I have handed over all my bot jobs to others. For the GAR jobs, you should contact Ruhrfisch. Best, — Carl (CBM · talk) 01:16, 8 November 2016 (UTC)
Did you give bot jobs to other people involving Peer Review? GamerPro64 16:05, 19 November 2016 (UTC)
My main contact for peer review was Ruhrfisch, and I believe he had access to the bot. — Carl (CBM · talk) 21:21, 19 November 2016 (UTC)

Friendly fire or something I overlookd?[edit]

With this edit, you changed

[[affirming the consequent]] to [[Affirming the consequent|affirming the consequent]] and
{{citation needed|date=November 2016}} to {{cn|date=November 2016}}.

If it was intentional, I'd like to know for why. Paradoctor (talk) 14:32, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Doesn't it match the status after your edit [1]? I must have been looking at a previous version of the page when I started editing. The lede was too long, so I moved a bunch of content into a lower section. — Carl (CBM · talk) 18:26, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
It does match my edit, but AnomieBOT and Yobot had their fingers in the pie, too. Face-grin.svg Fixed it. Happy editing. Paradoctor (talk) 20:36, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

Your inactive bot(s)[edit]

Hello CBM. We currently show that you are the operator on file for at least one bot account that appears to be inactive. Please see the discussion and list of bots here: Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard#Inactive bots over 5 years. If you are no longer operating your bot, no action is required - your bot will be marked as retired and have the bot flag removed. Should your bot be retired and you wish to revive it in the future, please request bot authorization at WP:BRFA. If you are still in control of your bot (including knowing its hopefully strong password) and wish to maintain the bot flag, please sign the table on the linked discussion. Thank you, — xaosflux Talk 14:42, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Björk and Pokémon[edit]

Hi, do you remember back in 2011 when WP 1.0 bot was changing Pokémon to Pokémon and Björk to Björk? Well, it did it again. anemoneprojectors 15:33, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for contacting me. I don't run the bot any longer; you should contact Theopolisme and/or Wolfgang42. The source of this kind of problem is Unicode utf8 encoding. Each string must be encoded exactly once, so if a change in a library changes that way that the data is passed to the bot's code, the code may need to be adjusted accordingly. — Carl (CBM · talk) 01:35, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
