Filip Petrovski

He is a library clerk. I don't think that listing his blogs, "Youtube", "Facebook" and "My Space" account plus as a "reference" having passed via some EU crash-coures in International Politics makes him, say, equal to Nelson or Jefferson.Regular guy, straight walking on the sidewalk, presenting himself (and it is plain obvious, no "libel", nor need for "forenscic expertise" that he wrote this article himself just like his several hundreds personal webpages.If being a former parliamentory, without any high level political merits (i.e ideology, historical decision, dissidentship etc.) than Wikipedia should add 40.000 retired deputies from all Continents every year. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:27, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

I will leave it as it is now. When you leave a comment please add ~~~~ to the end of the post to sign it with your name / ip. Also a little tip to you, please try not to just use caps as you did in that article as it looks bad and that was the main reason i reverted it. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 13:57, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Guru Gobind Singh

Please can you read the discussion page on Guru Gobind Singh and see if his death as a result of a stab wound as a result of an assassination attempt amounts to being worth airbrushed from historical facts ? Thank you —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:02, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Sorry for my error on that page. I thought that you had just randomly added "death = Stabbed and wounded to death by Jamshed Khan". That is why i removed it. Sorry for any troubles i have caused. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 11:59, 31 March 2008 (UTC)


Hi, just a heads up for you: your welcome message doesn't seem to adopt today's date (see [1] for example), but Feb 29. That's all :) SeveroTC 23:31, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

Excuse me, but I have a right to blank my talkpage if I want. Stop violating it, it's not your talk page.AngelofMadness (talk)

I am afraid i will not let you remove warnings that in my opinion should stay there forever. Also about 10 seconds after i add them there and other users warns too. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 16:26, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit Summery

Could I ask a quick question? What would I type in the Edit Summery when I undo a vandalized edit to make it read the "Reverted possible vandalism..." commonly seen rather than the "Undid edits..." placed in there ahead of time? Also, how do I revert back to an edit that might be three edits away from the current? Thanks. NeuGye (talk) 19:22, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I recommend that you test out a script called twinkle. i think WP:twinkle should get you there. There are certain requirments for that though. "Reverted possible vandalism..." is generally used by bots though. You could always just type it in yourself :). ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 16:10, 1 April 2008 (UTC)


I recently put up page that I wish to have deleted immediately. How do I do that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Brickhousemortar (talkcontribs)

article question

How do you know if someone has altered an article —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:34, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

You can click on the "history" tab at5 the top of the page. This will then show you show has edited the article and when and a reason also. You can then click on the date and it will bring up what the article looked like at that time. You can compare the versions as well to see what has been changed. I hope this helps. If you need more then please ask here and i will be happy to help. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 16:37, 2 April 2008 (UTC)


I don't exactly know if this is a scam but every time i watch Youtube to find videos on ways to make money online i end up here.

In these videos you will see various people with different backgrounds saying that they make 200$ or more in a day putting in only 2hrs or so of work.

I was interested in a video which said one could earn money just by uploading pictures and adding simple tags to them.Yes he earned 150$ for doing this as well.

When i visit this site,all i can see are more Ads pertaining to Home businesses and how they will help you get started.

I'm kind of fed up...So if anyone knows or has experience with this site please answer.

Your help will be appreciated —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:08, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. This is actually my personal talk page where people talk to me :) Personally i dont know anything about this website though. Sorry i couldn't be of any help to you.

Looking at your other contributions I'm sure it was an error but you reverted Cluebot and in the process blanked the page. I've fixed it so nothing to worry about. Kind regards, nancy (talk) 17:53, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. Yes i do accidentally revert Cluebot. This normally happens when i push my revert button just as clue bot reverts it. The page refreshes and reverts clue bots revert therefor i don't see them. Thanks for informing me about this and correcting the problem for me. I am constantly trying to not revert Cluebot in this way but sometimes it is unavoidable. Again thanks for your help. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 17:55, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Why did you add yet another last warning? Obviously they have no effect on this user; someone else gave him one yesterday, and you gave him one last month. Why didn't you just block him? Pdfpdf (talk) 23:18, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Addshore is not an admin. Also, the one yesterday was a level 3. Addshore gave a level 4. They call me X Really 23:21, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for replying "x" :D. I go through a set sequence. 1,2,3,4,block. Also yes i cant block but only request blocks.

Thanks :). Do you do admin coaching? ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 21:23, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I have been asked a few times now and recently my answer has been no because of the fact that I currently have two adoptee's and that takes up a good amount of my time...but for you I may make an exception. Let me think about it. Tiptoety talk 21:25, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Thanks <3. I dont think i would pass an RFA at the moment and have been waiting to get a coach for a while now :). Post here when you have decided.. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 21:27, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I think at this point in time I do not have the time to dedicate to coaching you, but once I graduate one of my adoptee's I would be happy. I know you can not wait that long so I went ahead and asked User:Rudget [2] if he would be willing to coach you, and then once I have some more time I could co-coach. Sound good? Tiptoety talk 23:17, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Yee :). I like Rudget ^^ He gave me a barnstar and likes my work as well <3. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 23:18, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Yep, he is an excellent admin. Now just to wait for his reply. Tiptoety talk 23:19, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

OK i will do and in the mean time i will revert and do stuffs at AIV :). ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 23:28, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Westbourne House School

mmm thats a great shame to be honest, I'm not sure you have ever been to Westbourne House School, but the leavers of 2003 are very much part of the history. I don't know why you would care anyway but the fact that my contribution is true and 'fact' really upsets me that you took them down. Please can you put the information back up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:43, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Nope i havn't ever been there. It's just something in the back of my head with the whole thing. You had them both as porn star... then you changed them... Yeh something tells me im not going to undo what i just did. If you think you are right then please add them again but i am sure someone else will remove them for me.

Update to the microgaming page

Hi, I'm just warning new (and existing) poker players that their funds would not be safe onthe microgaming network. All the information can be found: I won't ask you to read it all because it's over 130 pages already but it basically means that if you keep your funds on the microgaming network your funds are not hold in trust. I'm trying to make sure that people are aware of that. What kind of edit would be allowed to make sure this message gets across? Thanks in advance, Best regards, Robin —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:21, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

The first thing i can recommend to you is that you do not use CAPS.MICROGAMING IS NOT A SAFE PLACE TO KEEP YOUR FUNDS! It kind of looks bad. Also you need to try and have it as factual as you can. Also try to locate it somewhere in the article it would fit in with. Not at the very top ^^. Also can i recommend that you create an account (top right) and when you leave comments on talk pages please sign them by typing ~~~~ at the end. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 23:27, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

There was no final warning so i said there was no final warning. I just make things easier for admins and state things there to make it "easier" for them instead of clicking a load of buttons.

Hi there. I dont think it was deleted i think it was moved. If you go to pirin macedonians then it should redirect you to it. I am not an administrator. If you go into special pages then users and select the group administrators it will give you a list of the administrators on wikipedia.

Hi there, you added a stale tag to a vandalism report recently, I re-added it for discussion and the user was blocked, and the page protected. I thought I'd let you know so you wouldn't think I was re-adding in the hopes someone else would block. Also, I think that staleness is relative to the type of activity the user (and in this case their sock) take part in. The sock edited the day before, this user the next day, I don't think that a few hours makes this one stale? Let me know what you think though - I guess we're both interested in vandalism! BananaFiend (talk) 09:51, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

I added the tag but i did not remove the report. I generally only remove stale ip reports. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 09:54, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

As you can see here [3] SteveCrossin removed the report. We then had a talk.

Anyway it is good to see that he got blocked. and i hope this explains the actions. Also stale is when a user has not edited for a period of time and this user had not therefor i marked it.·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 09:58, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

First off, this may be the case because Neil has deleted my carefully set forth description of an orchestrated attack upon me recently at Self-replicating machine (that I posted at his talk page on this subject). Recently, I was attacked by what I like to describe as a gang of hackers (in the classic definition) who were as well admins. When I reported it, saying I was reporting it to authorities Yamla[4] blocked me for "legal threats" which is ridiculous. I rotated my IP to continue to try and deal with the libel and was blocked permanently and lies were told by Yamla in the process to get that done. I prepared a short as possible layout with diffs and the works and Neil said he did not understand it. No wounder, I had shortened it up because the prior description (labeled a rant by abject idiots) resulted in a further block. Right now a complete lie exists about me at Self-replicating machine at in the F-Unit article therein. The lie is this line:
"To date, no working examples of such devices have been constructed"
see here:[5]
This is a Bio attack and I am not a regular "editor", just here to fight it. This (and the short contentious article) was placed, supplanting the earlier article voted in by many experts working there after hundreds of pages of talk by several contentious editors acting as a cabal and who wrote the present one. None of the writers of the present article participated in the many pages of talk aside from several rude comments at me while posting it. I am working in trade secret and I am in no obligation to divulge video of my working device for wikipedia purposes. They have no proof that a working model does not exist so they have no source to that vicious remark. Further, I pointed out repeatedly that the patent office has record of a working model being presented (which they ignored). They have blocked all further voting (which are mostly my friendly voting editors). This is insane. If you want to take the time to read my detailed description of this tell me where to put it because Neil simply deleted it even though he stated he did not understand it. If you are looking for a short description it can't exist after the long history over this F-Unit article. Stupids will call it a rant.

I would prefer you place any further talk on this uppon the Self-replicating machine talk pages where I can find it better. Thank you.

Yep. I don't actually like them either. Their call centers are rubbish and i recommend everyone not to go with them. They don't even know what speed internet they are meant to be supplying you. Also you cant really download or game from 6:00 till 10:00 pm or something stupid because of an AUP. Also apparently with them the max we can get is 2mb but with other suppliers we can get 9mb e.t.c.

Categorizing Dumuzid

I was wondering if disambiguation pages were really supposed to be categorized - more often than not they redirect to all kinds of different categories. Sumerophile (talk) 19:02, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for telling me about this. I think the problem was that the page didn't contain {{disambig}} on it so it recognized it as a normal page. I have now added {{disambig}} on this page now but i am afraid that this will happen again in the future if a page is not tagged in this way. Anyway thanks lots for spotting this mistake i hope i don't do this to many times in the future. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 21:40, 10 April 2008 (UTC)
Aha, Thanks I didn't know about the disambig template. If I see another category tag on a disambig page, I'll replace it. Sumerophile (talk) 00:45, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Adding uncategorized tags

Why did you add an uncategorized tag to Dharan, Nepal? The correct thing to do would have been to find the edit that removed the categories and the interwiki tags, and revert it. Old and developed articles that lack them are usually vandalized, not permanently lacking these tags.--Prosfilaes (talk) 16:46, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi. I added the uncategorized tag because, well, it was uncategorized. I was unaware of the fact that someone had removed the cat but i was using WP:AWB and you don't really see much when using it. At least the vandalism has now been reverted. Sorry for any inconvenience i caused. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 17:21, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

regarding this edit

Articles that have been tagged as a copyvio aren't supposed to be edited until an administrator resolves the issue.--Rockfang (talk) 22:32, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. Thanks for telling me about this. I think i just wasn't quite paying attention enough to what i was clicking save on. Thanks for informing me about this. I have undone my edits back to the original. I use AWB to scan the New Pages and tag them but i will have to set something up to make sure that i don't accidentally edit more copyvio's in the future. Thanks :) ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 22:36, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
You are welcome. Others have done it as well. I did notice you recently copied the text on my user page to yours. Thief! ;) --Rockfang (talk) 22:55, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Yep i just spotted that when i went to your user :). Its a very nice bit actually ^^. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 23:04, 14 April 2008 (UTC)

Please do not tag these subpages!

To Addshore: You have been repeatedly adding orphan page tags to List of InuYasha chapters/Vol6to10‎, List of InuYasha chapters/Vol11to15, List of InuYasha chapters/Vol16to20, List of InuYasha chapters/Vol21to25. Please stop. I have reverted those inappropriate changes and will revert any such changes in the future. These pages are subpages of List of InuYasha chapters which transcludes them and should not be treated as if they were separate articles. JRSpriggs (talk) 08:50, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Hey there. Im sorry for the late reply. The reason i tagged this pages was because i was using AWB and also i did not actually know that subbages were not meant to be tagged. I normally just scan the new pages and tag them but i am sorry for tagging these pages. Thanks for reverting them for me and telling me that what i did was wrong ;p. If you see anything in the future from me that is wrong then please tell me here. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 07:48, 16 April 2008 (UTC)
Sorry, I did not mean to make a general statement about all subpages. Just the subpages of List of InuYasha chapters. Although it is no longer the usual practice to transclude subpages for large articles, I did it in this case because this article threatens to become extremely long as new volumes of InuYasha are translated to English. Some user's browsers/editors might not be able to handle the source file correctly, if they tried to edit it all at once. Thanks for your understanding of this special case. JRSpriggs (talk) 08:02, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Image:Volcano Pink Field.JPG

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on Image:Volcano Pink Field.JPG requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section I8 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is available as a bit-for-bit identical copy on the Wikimedia Commons under the same name, or all references to the image on Wikipedia have been updated to point to the title used at Commons.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page that has been nominated for deletion (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on [[ Talk:Image:Volcano Pink Field.JPG|the talk page]] explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Lastly, please note that if the article does get deleted, you can contact one of these admins to request that a copy be emailed to you. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 19:05, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Reverting vandalism

Vandalism on predation by an IP was reverted by you here, but you didn't take a look at what you were reverting to. You have to do this, otherwise you are taking a fair chance that you're just reverting to another vandalized version. In this case that's exactly what happened: this edit was what you reverted to, which, though appearing to be 'changing a wrong piece of info', is just a vandal in disguise. Please don't let vandals fool you like this again.

Best wishes. Richard001 (talk) 23:13, 25 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there.Yes I reverted the user for what he does here.] That was vandalism and i feel justified in reverting it. I don't know about the other edit which is made after the vandalism edit virtually reverting it back to normal. That diff must have loaded whilst i was looking at the previous one and i must have clicked my big revert button before it loaded so i did not see that they had just undone their vandalism. One thing i didn't see when looking was this vandalism was this and the other diff was about 4 hours long. I do look at every edit that i make and in my opinion i use all of my tools well. One thing i must say is if you have already seen that the previous edit / edits were vandalism then why have not you undone my bad move and reverted back to here. I have now done this for you to save you time. Also i will not be removing the warning from the ip that i warned for his vandalism as i fell it is justified as he did vandalize the article and that is what i saw. If you have any other questions please ask me. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 06:31, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Not reverting myself was an accident. I occasionally do things like this, e.g. warning a vandal without actually reverting the vandalism. Feel free to leave a note on my talk page if you see me do that! Richard001 (talk) 06:56, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Normally when i make a mistake over reverting it is normally a very clear one. I normally see them whilst i am reverting and stop and go back remove the warns and undo my revert. This case it was impossible for me to do that and I will say i am sorry for any of your time that I might just have wasted. I doubt i will ever see you make a mistake but if i do i will try to remember to tell you. Personally i also like people telling me about my mistakes, its the only way that i can correct them and make myself more alert over the same mistake again. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 07:05, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Please don't forget to provide an [[Help:Edit summary|edit summary]]{{#if:|, which wasn't included with your recent edit to [[{{{1}}}]]}}. {{#if:|{{{2}}}|Thank you.}} <!-- Template:uw-editsummary --> <font color="blue">'''[[User:Addshore|·Add§hore·]]''' <sup>[[User_talk:Addshore|T<small>alk</small>]]</sup>/<sub>[[Special:Contributions/Addshore|C<small>ont</small>]]</sub></font> 21:07, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Mine was the first entry on the user's talk page, and conveyed a heading. As such, a manual ==heading== conveys all the meaning that an edit summary would convey. Sinebot is one thing, but an enforcer of edit summaries seems a bit much. Indeed, I have my preferences configured to remind me not to leave an edit summary, which didn't seem to find anything wrong with what I did. You may want to explore the logic a bit farther, as irrelevant reminders do not add positively to the editing experience. An edit summary is indeed useful, but the equivalent semantics existed in this case. Is there now a Wikipedia policy requiring edit summaries? Howard C. Berkowitz (talk) 21:20, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. It was me and not a bot. Also the message is a template and is the same for everyone that gets it sent to them. I have looked through your contribs now and i have seen that you did not make an edit without an edit summary. I am afraid to say then that i must have added the template by accident. I am sorry for any inconvenience that i have caused you. I will also remove the message from your talk page. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 22:16, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Ok i now have a strange feeling that i havn't read your message right. I havn't messaged you :S. Man i really have confused myself now. Any chance you could add some more details? ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 22:19, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

edit summary

Sorry to bother you, you asked me to leave an 'edit summary', whats it in reference to please? Twobells (talk) 21:22, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Well do you know what an eidt summary is? If not please just ask me. An example of you not using one is in this edit on this page. To add one just type a summary of what changes you have done in you edit into the box below the edit box. I hope this makes sense. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 21:25, 26 April 2008 (UTC)


Just delete that fppd picture if you can, i do not know how to! it is not used on any pages anymore and it is not needed!!! Cherokee40 (talk) 21:33, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry but i cant delete it. If you want it deleted you can tag it for CSD WP:CSD if it fits one of them. I hope this helps. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 22:09, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism to Talk Pages

Your edit [6] is considered vandalism. Per Wikipedia policy users are free to edit their own talk pages and remove comments as desired. This also applies to users which are identified with an IP address instead of a username. Please refrain from editing any users talk page, besides adding constructive content, in the future. (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 00:27, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi there. I am sorry for that revert. I obviously read the page title wrong and i reverted as i didn't see that it was your talk page. I am well aware of what i have done and i see that you have reverted my mistake. I must thank you for that and also thank you for telling me about my mistake as this is the only way that i can try not to make them again. I will also remove the warn from your talk page if you havn't already. Thanks again and sorry. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 15:42, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:Itslearning_homepage.png)

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:Itslearning_homepage.png. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Melesse (talk) 08:27, 27 April 2008 (UTC)


I have tagged Image:Itslearning_logo.gif as {{orphaned fairuse}}. In order for the image to be kept at Wikipedia, it must be included in at least one article. If this image is being used as a link target instead of displayed inline, please add {{not orphan}} to the image description page to prevent it being accidentally marked as orphaned again. Melesse (talk) 08:27, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Carlos Becker Westphall

You added the uncategorised tag to this page with AutoWikiBrowser, but failed to notice the text had been replaced with "who cares". While i caught it, its your responsibility as an AWB user to "check every edit before you hit save", where you could've noticed the vandalism. Sorry to sound up myself, just trying to tell people if they make mistakes; that way they wont next time. Ironholds (talk) 12:45, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

I hold the same kind of mind. Its great if people tell you that you have made a mistake otherwise you don't know you have made it. Then you keep on making it. I do check the edits that i make using AWB and i honestly don't know how i didn't spot this. I am guessing that the Carlos Becker Westphall page was in the list of uncategorized articles as that and another page is where i get my list from to scan. I just checked the diff and yes i agree that that was quite a big thing to miss. Thanks again for telling me ^^. If you ever see anything i do wrong again please tell me. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 15:55, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

New Project

Myself and several other editors have been compiling a list of very active editors who would likely be available to help new editors in the event they have questions or concerns. As the list grew and the table became more detailed, it was determined that the best way to complete the table was to ask each potential candidate to fill in their own information, if they so desire. This list is sorted geographically in order to provide a better estimate as to whether the listed editor is likely to be active.

If you consider yourself a very active Wikipedian who is willing to help newcomers, please either complete your information in the table or add your entry. If you do not want to be on the list, either remove your name or just disregard this message and your entry will be removed within 48 hours. The table can be found at User:Useight/Highly Active, as it has yet to have been moved into the Wikipedia namespace. Thank you for your help. Useight (talk) 17:03, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Vandalised pages

Hello, I see you've been doing some nice jobs with your AWB. However, you've been tagging former categorized pages as uncategorized. It happens that their categories were removed due to vandalism. As a member of the uncategorized task force, I've been doing some categorizing on the last few minutes and I've come to these vandalized pages that you tagged as uncategprized:

I already reverted the pages to the last acceptable version. I'm not trying to criticize your work, furthermore, I encourage it. But isn't there a way for you to check previous versions of the pages that you edit before adding tags to them? Thank you, Victor Lopes (talk) 22:35, 4 May 2008 (UTC)

I was checking all of those pages as i edited them. I have added an ignore for any page with {{disambig}} as i know that they should not be tagged. That gets rid of the last page. The first page i did not edit. The other 2 pages i cannot see how i could avoid that unless i look in the history but those edits were testing for a bot and in a way you have helped as i will ignore disambig's but i cant find any way to make the bot not realize the vandalism. I will probably not be making many more AWB edits under this account but instead they will be on my bot acount. I really will just have to hope that people spot these false positives and revert / report them. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 22:43, 4 May 2008 (UTC)
Hmm, that's true, you didn't edit Aatish (film). Sorry for the lack of attention. And yes, you really would have to look in the history, but that's exactly the point, take a quick look at the history and you may avoid unnecessary tagging. As for the bot, I'm not really familiarized with them, but I never really trusted machines nor any kind of artificial intelligence, at all. I mean, they think only what they are meant to think, they cannot solve problems they were not programmed to. But if you're not able to avoid it, no problem, just keep up with the good work, other editors will fix any possible problem. Cheers, Victor Lopes (talk) 18:10, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
Well i think the reason the program did this was because the program is actually kind of half version. I have notified the developers and they should hopefully be trying to fix this. One unfortunate fact is that the program will never quite be right because of the ever changing nature of wikipedia. It just takes one thing to be changed slightly to ruin a programs functionality =]. Again thanks for telling me about this as without it i would never have noticed. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 19:27, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Fix and tag


a few edits from your latest AWB run have popped up on my watchlist. Mostly good work, but there have been a few which appear only to tweak whitespace in a way which doesn't affect the display, such as this one. That sort of use of AWB is discouraged, and while I know from experience that these things aren't always easy to avoid, I just thought I'd point it out to you in case there is anything you can due to reduce the incidence. --BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 07:54, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Yep i have changed that option now. It will now only change white space if it is also changing something else on the page. Thanks for telling me about this edit. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 07:56, 5 May 2008 (UTC)


sorry but i was trying 2 help sorry again thank all tha admin for the coll site.

No problem :). ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 13:08, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Fix and tag

Looks like this is running AWB general fixes only against a massive number of articles. In particular, articles with old "subst'd" clean-up tags get broken by this, e.g. . Generally we don't run just general fixes. Furthermore, Addbot is not authorised for this task. Rich Farmbrough, 12:01 5 May 2008 (GMT).

The bot is authorised to do general fixing[7] (see bottom comments). That is not this bots main task but the tagging is. The list the bot is currently running off is comprised of a series of dates of Special:UncategorizedPages Special:LonelyPages Special:DeadendPages e.t.c. What the bot is doing the bot is allowed to do. I have set the bot to ignore all pages with {{PAGENAME}} on them now as i think that is what is causing the problems. I will also talk to the AWB devs and see if this can somehow be implemented into AWB. Thanks for telling me about this. If you have another message then please tell me. I will not start running the bot again until i get your heads up :). ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 12:10, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
You should put links to the approvals on Addbot's page. The last 6 edits (al that I looked at) contained no tagging, be aware that the "special " lists are often very outdated. Need also to check your edit speed is OK with no bot flag. Rich Farmbrough, 12:20 5 May 2008 (GMT).
Should also put Addbot in thei table . Rich Farmbrough, 12:21 5 May 2008 (GMT).
The bot flag just got addded :). I will add the brfa's to the page now. I will go and add it to the table now! ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 12:22, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Great news on the bot flag. Rich Farmbrough, 13:29 5 May 2008 (GMT).
Ok i have added the BRFA's to the bots user page next to the tasks they correspond to. I am running the AWB bot again - fixing and i am tyring to fix what i can. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 13:32, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

BY the way, "general fixes" is slightly broken at the moment, as it removes {{sectstub}} from articles. Rich Farmbrough, 14:27 5 May 2008 (GMT).

Thanks for telling me. I will not use the general fixes again until i am sure they work =]. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 14:29, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Addbot Bug

Hi! Two things:

1) I found what I think is a small bug in the way Addbot handled this article I'm currently editing: Wolfgang Smith. It moved the {{Lifetime}} template from where it was, between the {{Persondata}} template and the many categories, to above it. This isn't the correct behavior, IMHO, as Lifetime expands to {{DEFAULTSORT}} and to the birth and death (or "living people", or "unknown birth", or "unknown death", etc.) categories. In short, with your changes, the end result goes:

So, please update the bot to take Lifetime into consideration.

2) And a question: In the same edit Addbot removed the {{Philosopher-stub}} tag. Any reason for that? -- alexgieg (talk) 12:25, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry i will reply to this message soon but i have to go out now :S. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 12:30, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
Ok, the reason it removed the stub tag is because the whole article has over X amount of words. This is a bug if the article is layed out like this. What i will do is turn the fixing bit of the bot off and then let it run. I will try to find a way i can make it not do these changes but with the option on. Thanks for telling me about what you found! ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 13:07, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
There is a known bug with {{Lifetime}}, but this may be a new one, worth loggin. Rich Farmbrough, 14:29 5 May 2008 (GMT).
I am running a version of AWB that has not been released yet also. this could cause some problems but should have gotten rid of a few of them also. ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 14:31, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Unconstructive Edit?

My edit to George Fenneman was judged as unconstructive. Is this because I didn't log in?

Re:Redlink removal

I'm doing it with a program I whipped up out of some of the code I use for the maintenance of the DEP pages. I could reverse the links it removes and provide it to you if you want, but it's written in Python and so requires both the Python software and the Python Wikipediabot Framework if you don't already have them. Let me know if that will suit your purpose or not; if it does I'll e-mail it to you.--Dycedarg ж 02:13, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry but the bot doesn't know if it is a disambig page. But if the bot says disambig anywhere on it then the bot will skip it so that it doesn't tag it. Just wondering but which page was this? ·Add§hore· Talk/Cont 00:19, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Edit summary

You left an edit summary warning on my talk page, but didn't fill in the article entry to which you are objecting. I don't fill in ES for small edits, commentary edits, or edits in a series of edits where I already left an ES that I was working on a major cleanup, as more than one ES would be a redundant nuisance. I'd invite you to look here to see where I add ES when they are necessary. --Faith (talk) 10:05, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
