WP:BN thread[edit]

In case you hadn't noticed, please take a look at this rights management thread at BN, where you may be able to lend some clarity. –xenotalk 14:18, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

(Bot: Adding {{Multiple issues}} {{Orphan}} (Report Errors))[edit]

See where the bot added an orphan tag where one already existed. It shouldn't be adding duplicate tags. If there is one existing, it shouldn't be adding one at all. 3gg5amp1e (talk) 16:44, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Not an isolated incident either:
Don't know if this is fixed now, but I've found many others (and actually requested the AWB be able to automatically fix them as part of cleanup ) 3gg5amp1e (talk) 17:49, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing this to my attention! This isn't something I remember fixing or ever being mentioned before so I can only presume that it has not been spotted until now (had a quick search in my talk page archive and couldn't find anything.
As it was so long ago I can't remember exactly what script was used to make the changes. I don't remember ever adding general fixes such as white space fixes to my custom PHP scripts so the diffs almost make me feel like this was AWB O_o (I could be wrong however).
If we want a list of articles where this might have happened I could probably generate one with a DB query, If you feel I should fix the errors I would also be more than willing to do so!
Added myself to the phab task so I can follow it ·addshore· talk to me! 19:22, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
I don't think it is a big problem, I've been fixing them as I go through the backlog. Just something that you should be aware of for future runs. It seems to happen when there is an orphan tag that has more than just a date parameter (such as an att= or a few=). Don't know if that helps or not, but I've started tagging them with a note in the ES we can search for later using the ES search tool. 3gg5amp1e (talk) 19:27, 15 June 2015 (UTC) 3gg5amp1e (talk) 19:29, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Yeh, no need to worry about this happening again, as the script, well, I don't even know where it would be. I'll try and dump a list of page titles for you! Thanks for your work! Don't believe this hasn't been spotted until now, over 2 years later. ·addshore· talk to me! 19:35, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
So there are under 1000 pages that the bot added the orphan tag to in that month. Running a query here to give you a list. Might take about 10-20 mins. ·addshore· talk to me! 19:57, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Apparently I cant run that on quarry, so here is the output ·addshore· talk to me! 23:04, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry, I don't want to be a pain, but both of those links give me a page that says "504 Gateway Time-out". Can't I just build a list of all pages using the template with AWB and filter them through a find and replace that looks for them to be used twice? Or could I have it check for doubles for that chunk of AddBot's contributions? 3gg5amp1e (talk) 12:32, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
    You're going to get that until labs is back up. Be patient.—cyberpowerChat:Online 14:09, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Workshopping bureaucrat activity requirements[edit]

(Message to all bureaucrats)

There is an ongoing discussion about implementing some kind of standards for administrative and bureaucrat activity levels; and activity requirements for bureaucrats have been explored several times in the past. I've prepared a draft addition to Wikipedia:Bureaucrats that would require at least one bureaucratic action every five years to retain the bureaucrat permission.

In the past, I've been hesitant of such proposals but I believe that if the bureaucrat group as a whole is seen to be actively engaged, the community may be more willing to grant additional tasks to the position.

Please let me know your thoughts. I'm not sure if this actually applies to any of us, but if you have not acted as a bureaucrat in over five years, you might consider requesting removal of the permission or otherwise signalling that you intend to return to bureaucrat activity. –xenotalk 14:22, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
