Administrator emergency shutoff

Administrators may turn the bot off by changing this page to 'False'.

Exclusion compliant

This bot is an exclusion compliant bot.

Other namespace opt-in

Normally ClueBot will not revert pages outside of the main namespace (with the exception of talk pages if it detects page-move vandalism). However, if there is a good reason to list another page (like a user page, user talk, or talk page that gets vandalized often), it can be listed on this list of pages outside the main namespace to revert.

1RR compliant

This bot will not revert the same article and user more than once per day. There is one exception: This bot will revert today's featured article or any page listed in the opt-in list for angry mode as many times as it finds vandalism. The bot will not revert to itself or one of its friends (MartinBot/VoABot II).

My stats

For my editing stats, please go here.

Scoring system

For pages which have had a lot of text added in the last change, the bot will score the additions based on this list, and then score the removals on the inverse of that list. If the overall score is greater than -100, the bot sees the edit as constructive and does nothing, if it scores less than -100, the bot sees it as destructive, reports it and possibly reverts it.

Open proxy scanning

ClueBot will report open proxies found on vandalizing IP addresses to WP:OP. ClueBot checks the following DNS Blacklists:

ClueBot also scans the following ports for open proxies:

  • HTTP: 80 8080 3128 6588 81 8000 8001 8081 808 6660 6661 6662 6663 6664 6665 6666 6667 6668 6669 1337 31337 1338 31338 7000

Debug channel

ClueBot reports vandalism that it finds in #wikipedia-VAN on FreeNode.

Admin requests

ClueBot will make requests for administrators in #cvn-wp-en when a user vandalizes while listed on AIV. ClueBot also will make requests for administrators in #cvn-wp-en when a page has been vandalized 30 times in the last 48 hours.


ClueBot responds to a couple of commands due to Wikihermit's request.
!edit [[PAGENAME]] will give information on the last edit to the given page.
!stalk [[User:USERNAME]] will give information on the last edit by the given user.
!count [[User:USERNAME]] will give the edit count for the given user
!beaten [[User:USERNAME]] will give the number of times the given user has beaten ClueBot to a revert
!vandalcount [[PAGENAME]] will give the vandalized count.
!warninglevel [[User:USERNAME]] will give the user warning level during the last two days.

Apparently people are going crazy-loco-nutso about them beating this bot to vandalism, and I didn't know about this thing until now. I just wanted to stop by and say that I beat this bot here to some vandalism on the Psilocybin mushroom Wikipedia page. Nana-nana-boo-boo! :D tgtw 03:11, 3 June 2015 (UTC)

AHA! I beat you to vandalism! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! But you're a pretty good bot, all these other users have praised you for beating them and I beat you. I feel so proud of myself SCongratulate.gif PhilrocMy contribs 14:41, 25 November 2014 (UTC)

Hahhaha, this page just got vandalized!! This is a test. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:32, 4 December 2014 (UTC) Are you a Ghost Editor or Jokester?...Or am I just delirious? Jennypennypocket 02:33, November 03, 2014

This is regarding the Ketamine article, which you last edited a day ago.... When I first read it, I did a double take and was perplexed. "Was I seeing things?" I thought to myself. Heck I had been feeling quite nauseous, weak, and loopy after taking overly potent OTC cold medicine (the subject of which I had originally been searching,)

Anyway, the first paragraph in the article, said "Ketamine... is mainly for starting and maintaining general anesthesia. Snorted regularly by Katie rose. Also known as Ketty..."

Huh? Wha???

I had to double take to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. Then after I logged in to Wiki, to edit out that rubbish, it seemed to have already been removed.

I KNOW I didn't imagine it--heck I took a picture of it! So are you the zippy editor who removed the nonsense or did someone else secretly break into the article and do the job without leaving a trace? And how can one NOT leave a trace? If the silly sentences were removed while I was on the page, the article SHOULD have said, for example, "Last edited 30 second ago by so-and-so".

HOW DID YOU DO THIS??? Mind = blown Helicopter Llama 17:38, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

I did a quick joke edit as a breaching experiment (I know, I know, I won't do it again) and ClueBot caught it and reverted it immediately. I'm extremely impressed. Cluebot has made wikipedia even more resilient to vandalism. Great job everyone involved in the creation and maintenance of Cluebot! --Ex-Troll Scientist — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:29, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you to ClueBot NG for fixing vandalism on Boer. I'm a Wiki newbie and don't know if the vandalism was virus-related, or maybe related to a teenager accessing my computer at home.

Dang, ClueBot NG is amazing — it catches vandalism that other bots could only dream of detecting. I originally predicted that bots would detect 50% of all vandalism by 2030, but it looks like I was off by a whopping two decades! :-) Oh, and it beats me to the edit almost every time. :o --Ixfd64 (talk) 06:49, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Should I consider this a challenge to meet your 2056 prediction? Crispy1989 (talk) 07:01, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
I don't think were going to have to wait that long. :D --Ixfd64 (talk) 07:06, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
Of course, we could have a >99.9% detection rate by making the bot revert every edit from a non-whitelisted user, but the false positive rate would be a tad high, wouldn't it? --Ixfd64 (talk) 07:07, 4 November 2010 (UTC)
The false positive rate is configurable — vandalism catch rate depends on it. Current false positive rate is 0.25%, which seems reasonable. It may end up being lowered, but is unlikely to be raised. At this rate, we are currently catching about 60% of vandalism. 99.9% isn't a realistic goal, because some borderline edits really should have a human decide. But maybe we can get close. Crispy1989 (talk) 07:20, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

I noticed this bot pop up on my watchlist, as I understand it, it seems likley that when completed it will be able to catch and revert upto 70% of the vandalism on wikipedia within 0.02 seconds with a 0.5% false positive rate? <---- That's a very exciting prospect, great work! Ajbpearce (talk) 21:31, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Well, it can already catch 70% of vandalism, with a 0.5% false positive rate, and the core operates in 0.02 seconds. However, the false positive rate was lowered to 0.25% (at which it catches around 60% of vandalism) and may be lowered still. Also, 0.02 seconds is how long it takes the core to classify an edit as vandalism. The interface to Wikipedia takes most of the time, and can add up to several seconds to this. Crispy1989 (talk) 00:53, 6 November 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for this bot. It seems quite more aggressive than previous bots, and that's a great thing. With the amount of vandalism we see, I much rather have the occasional false positive than scale back the triggers. --CutOffTies (talk) 16:10, 18 November 2010 (UTC)

Re. User talk: May I thank you for the immediate and extremely necessary, sensible, competent and (as I personally believe) nationally useful (in fact extremely useful and sensible in all respects including international) immediate removal on 18 November of the remarkably non-substantiated comment provided by the person or persons as named under 'User talk' address above, and also for your explanation and suggestions on this same talk page. You may be interested to know (if any of you should have the time or the interest) that I myself have added a further comment to the talk page in question (User talk: WELL DONE WIKIPEDIA will be the ultimate verdict, or so I believe. It remains to be seen. If you want further information I shall be pleased to provide it to you (by email or by post, contact Thanks for that which you have so WELL in fact MAGNIFICENTLY done.

I just cannot believe how advanced the bot is! I cannot believe that it reverts the edits almost instantly! It fascinates me! Does anyone here know how ClueBot works? Because I just cannot believe how advanced it is! Technology these days :D -UNpilot15

Holy... every time I try to revert vandalism... this bot always does it first!!what kind of steroids are you using? just kidding, great work on the bot guys, it really has made the wiki a cleaner place. XD0248 (talk)` —Preceding undated comment added 02:03, 15 December 2010 (UTC).

When I realized how much I relied on wikipedia I made a pledge to hand fix at least five acts of vandalism a day (That includes fact checking of minor date changes and similar issues). Problem is, you catch at least 3/5 of those right when I click on them! I click on the history, see obvious vandalism, go to edits... when BOOM! It's already gone, along with a warning for the user. This bot is absolutely amazing, I just wish it could pass a turing test and gain publicity... Silenceisgod (talk) 23:36, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

It's amazing, but what about us rollbackers? We're legitimately going to be out of a job :O! Soon, we'll just have a bot that reverts everything and our job will be to re-revert non-vandal edits! But seriously, this bot is smart enough to catch virtually anything. I bet vandals won't even bother in 10 years. Finalius (Ecru?!) 12:18, 15 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, Cluebot, for spotting a serious case of vandalism by Supyanhussin in the article on Computer-assisted language learning (CALL). The revision by Supyanhussin made a complete mess of the introduction and was clearly the work of a person who has little understanding of the current state of the art of CALL.

Very decent of you to rollback the vandalism in the page Seyed Mohammad Marandi. As a matter of fact, I would like to ask you to keep a special eye on this page, because it is prone to further vandalism for the sake of the subject matter it covers. Thank you very much.

This is the only warning you will receive. Your instant vandalism reverts will not be tolerated. Although removing vandalism is encouraged, your ridiculously high speed constitutes a monopoly. The next time you remove vandalism from a page, you may be awarded a barnstar without further notice. --Σ 01:59, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Very impressed with the bot performance less than a nanosecond and the vandalism was gone — well ok not quite that fast but still pretty darn impressive.

Thanks for catching the unecessary added wording on the glasses page in the section entitled "invention of eye glasses".

I for one am really glad to see you back. I'm just a regular Wikipedian, but when I heard Cluebot NG went down I started freaking out and ended up watchlisting a bunch of pages, just so I could defend them. I was very concerned about the vandalism that was piling up on Wikipedia, and really hoping that your server issue would be addressed swiftly. Fortunately, the bot's back up and running now, so everything seems much better now. I'm sorry to hear about the dataset issues, but I've looked at its contributions and the vast majority of its reverts are vandalism, which pleases me very much. Seriously, well done on the bot programming, it truly is a remarkable accomplishment. If you ever have trouble with finances again, do speak up and I'm sure we the appreciative community will see what we can do. :D Impressed and pleased, Jessemv (talk) 07:40, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

It's sad how little praise there is here. Anyway I was amazed that Cluebot detected this as vandalism... it has no junk characters, profanity or hate speech, it's a normally-written insertion of a tired but obscure conspiracy theory. Pretty cool that a bot could detect that as vandalism. Nice work. --Runame (talk) 15:07, 10 January 2012 (UTC)

I find that a lot of the bots on Wikipedia do annoying things, like making unnecessary edits ("imdb" to "IMdB", for instance, or "commonscat" to "Commons category"), but I'm very thankful that ClueBot is around. It is, by far, the most useful bot we have, and I'm grateful for it every time I see vandalism that it has fixed. Everyone involved is to be congratulated for a really great job, and for the service you all have provided to the community. Beyond My Ken (talk) 02:00, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

It's funny. 9 times out of 10 I find a vandal on the edit filter, ClueBot has beaten me to the punch no matter how innocuous or random the edit seems to be. To the programmer(s), great job and keep up the awesome work! I hope you continue to beat me to the punch and help keep Wikipedia free of vandalism! Jns4eva (talk) 05:57, 4 November 2013 (UTC)

I was looking in the history of the article on Kant, and I discovered that earlier today a piece of very stupid and counter-productive (but admittedly hilarious; I would never encourage it, but seeing as it was already reverted I was able to get a good giggle from it) vandalism was reverted in the very same minute it was added! I was confused and impressed. I don't understand how this bot works, but—for its good work—I definitely do thank both it and its human overlords (who I presume exist; please, God, don't let this bot be sentient! Its power would be too great!) BreakfastJr (talk) 10:45, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Well, I've always been impressed by ClueBot NG's advanced artificial neural network, and its large database of edits, but I am still mindblown on how it could catch this. You're a very underestimated bot. Underestimated and neglected by the world. It seems only the people who edit Wikipedia know about you. The readers don't know about you. The teachers don't know about you. And if they did, they'd be more comfortable reading Wikipedia and knowing that a lot of work and time and effort has been put into building the articles, and a bot plus an army of rollbackers that number in the thousands to keep it clean from vandalism.

And yes, if you haven't seen those warnings I gave you - you should really stop beating me to reverts all the time. K6ka (talk | contribs) 02:49, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Now ClueBot, apparently bored with undoing garden-variety vandalism, has started to even revert original research (where all the king's men, and all human Wikipedians, have failed)! I, for one, bow to our new robot overlord.

Tellingly, as a card-carrying member of the Official ClueBot fan club (tee-hee!) for many years, it was only a year or so ago when it finally dawned on me that the name of the mighty ClueBot is a clever reference to the mighty cluebat.

A comment following repeated "sanitisation" of a page on an organisation: it must be very very discouraging to spend lots of time carefully constructing a page that presents a topic you're involved with with enough fulsome phantasy praise, deletion of awkward actual facts (e.g., list of activities of a multi-billion organisation claiming humanitarian aims containing only "free haircut for those who attend promotional meetings"). In one such case the user had sandbox edit history spanning 4 hours (maybe 4 hours + of time invested). When the edit of the article was committed it was reverted in the same minute by ClueBot NG. Apart from a nice anecdote, the serious point is that CBNG may seriously discourage people making complex edits to push a POV. Pol098 (talk) 10:22, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
