I might reply here or on your page, I'm a bit crazy like that.

Come back soon[edit]

I realize that you've taken some stress over AWB, but I hope you can get over that and decide to come back. Wikipedia can still use you. Don't let them get you down. Dragons flight 12:56, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Seconded. [[Sam Korn]] 13:21, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Fourthed! Can you please e-mail me the source code at: my Wikipedia username at I loved the AWB and I'm so sorry to see it go! Thanks for all your contributions to Wikipedia. - Mathwiz2020 16:33, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Thank you, but if I do come back it will be under a different name. If anyone wants the source code for the software I will email it to them, seems a shame to waste it. This will be my last ever edit from this username. Martin 14:24, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Please email source to me. I'd just started using AWB! It's cool. Rich Farmbrough. 20:38, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, got it. Rich Farmbrough. 20:54, 2 January 2006 (UTC).

I join the others in hoping you'll return, even if it is under a different user name. You've been a great asset to Wikipedia. Also, just wanted to let you know that I restored your talk page; I hope you don't mind—in general talk pages shouldn't be deleted because they have contributions from so many people. Take a nice Wikibreak and hope you'll be fresh and ready to work when you return! — Knowledge Seeker 21:39, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

  • I would just like to say your contribution to Wikipedia is immeasurable. Your AutoWikiBrowser is a great asset and is exactly what is missing in Wikipedia. I do hope you return in the near future. Thank you for everything. Gflores Talk 21:48, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for all the help and great work! See you soon, I hope! --SarekOfVulcan 23:27, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey Bluemoose, too bad you're throwing in the towel. We need people more people like you to remain active! Well anyway, you've contributed more positive things than most vandals could hope to vandalise in a lifetime.. I hope you'll come back in the future. Cheers!! Jacoplane 01:37, 3 January 2006 (UTC)
Agreed. Come back soon! This isn't worth leaving for, is it? Titoxd(?!? - help us) 05:38, 3 January 2006 (UTC)
  • I strongly agreee with all the above comments. You have been vary valuable here, and not just for AWB. Please do retun whn you can. DES (talk) 05:43, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Just joining the chorus. Sorry to see you go - you will be missed. Hopefully we'll see you again after a bit of a break, but if not, thanks for all you did anyway. Ambi 11:00, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Torn to hear that you've left just as I've come back. Hope to see you back soon, under this or another account. -- Essjay · Talk 12:50, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

"Joining the chorus". Under this username, or another, I hope to see you in some form back on Wikipedia soon. You've been a teriffic asset to the Wiki. I'm particularly a big fan of your Bluebot. Anyway, see ya... Coffee 21:43, 4 January 2006 (UTC)
Well shit. I get sick, don't get on wikipedia for a week and I come back to this. "Boo," I say, "boo!" I'm glad to see that you've decided to take a break rather than leave entirely. I hope that you do in fact return; we will miss you while your gone. When you come back, please drop me a line. I'll be glad to see you around again. All my best on your break. --best, kevin [kzollman][talk] 02:29, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

AWB continued[edit]

I have a new AWB page at User:Mathwiz2020/AutoWikiBrowser. I hope I can continue the AWB in Bluemoose's honor. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 01:11, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

Thank you for your support in my recent succesful RFA. I appreciate the trust you have shown in me. Kind regards, --TimPope 17:37, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Your sign-off[edit]

Hi Martin. It's very sad you intend to leave. You have been doing such wonderful things, of which I got to know the AWB and your excellent bot runs. I do not know what was going on but I know that this wiki has some potential for frustration. I hope you regenerate your anti-bull skin and come back. It would definitely make this place here better. Sorry for my bad English (my mother-tongue is Swiss-German). Adrian Buehlmann 19:08, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey there, man. Too bad to see you go. The current state of the project is truly sad, but maybe someday we will be able to get the head of editors on the right place and vandals/POV-pushers/idiots will be repressed instead of being defended. Best of luck to you and I hope you feel welcome to join the project once more at any time, in case you feel like it. Regards, --Sn0wflake 21:53, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Welcome back![edit]

Glad to see you're still with us. :) --SarekOfVulcan 22:54, 4 January 2006 (UTC)

Very glad to see you return. DES (talk) 17:51, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Thank you all, I was serious about "leaving", but all these nice comments reminded me why I like it here so much! I think I will try and get less involved though. thanks! Martin 23:58, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Welcome, back, too! I was a little slow - I couldn't figure out why you were still editing - then I saw your user page. We're all so glad to see you! By the way, I have been nominated for adminship. You can vote here. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 01:41, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

It is good to see you back Martin. Don't let the fools get you down. Your work and contributions are greatly appreciated. --Reflex Reaction (talk)• 22:27, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

Hey, if you're around and bored...[edit]

A guy over on wikinews was looking for some help with a "sensitive" prepared story and I thought you might be suited to giving him a hand. Drop him a line at his talk page if you get a chance. Thanks. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 00:34, 5 January 2006 (UTC)


C++ seems to be here rather than C plus plus as it once was. I just noticed you are changing some C++ links to C plus plus. Maybe the reverse needs to be done if the new article name is permanent. - Stoph 22:02, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

You have got it the wrong way around. Martin 22:04, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
Haha, what the heck.... I could have sworn I saw...... - Stoph 22:09, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Yea me too. Is there anyone doing disambiguation pages with links work with AWB? I have been thinking of ding some coding around this (other than the python scriot some people use). Without having tried anythign on AWB yet it looks like the regex stuff will probbly work though having it auto generate edit summaries describing what link was disambiguated to what article (and how many times) would be very cool. Anyway, add me when you get a chance. Dalf | Talk 07:04, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Could you please register me when you have the time? Many thanks / Vic Vipr 14:21, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

AWB doesn't seem to work.[edit]

I can't seem to get it to work. Whenever it tries to do an operation it gives me an error which reads as follows:

An error has occured in the script on this page.
 Line:  12
 Char:  2
Error:  'document.getElementById(...)' is null or not an object
 Code:  0
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
                      Yes   No

At first I thought it had something to do with my monobook.js, so I blanked it and purged the cache. Didn't make a difference. Then I looked on the URL given and thought maybe it had something to do with a blank line when checking for registered users, so I removed the blank line. This didn't help either, so I reverted that edit. Any ideas? — FREAK OF NURxTURE (TALK) 16:10, Jan. 6, 2006

Well, no, actually it looks like this: Image:AWB bug 2.png. Same format, but different bug in a different location, as summarized above. — FREAK OF NURxTURE (TALK) 16:32, Jan. 6, 2006
I've quit using internet explorer for anything these days, but AWB seems to tap into it. Anyway to avoid this? Maybe I need to install some plug-in in addition to this .NET link which I've already done? Or try running the installer again? — FREAK OF NURxTURE (TALK) 16:45, Jan. 6, 2006

Can you help?[edit]

Hello I just found out about AWB which sounds like the best thing ever. I have just spent the last few weeks going through 4000 pages checking the Wikisource links as about 500 of them were broken in when WS split into language domains. If only I had known about your wonderful tool sooner, it might have only helped the searching but that would have been great! Well I have fixed up English Wikipedia by the process of finding a wikisource link and clicking on it. If the link goes to a non-existant page on WS, then I determine which WS domain I am on (English or Multilingual). If English, then go back to the English WP page and hit edit and correct the code to direct to the appropriate language domain which can be determined by the link or just skimming the article. If Multilingual, I go back to The English WP and change the link to direct to the English Wikisource. Either way I hit preview and test the link. Sometimes it still doesn't work and I might have to search the WS as they have moved the article to a new name. Then I go on to my next search result, rinse, and repeat. Anyway I have finished all of English WP just last night and I have also done the Spanish WP. I was wondering if you could ask the people who have your AWB in the other WP language domains to look for broken WS link? I don't know if that is asking alot of people or not, but I am sure the other language domains are full of these nasty broken links which encourage people to add text to the wrong Wikisource (text which probably aready exists in the correct place). See s:Hesychius of Alexandria, someone has added this greek text of english WS and we have had to delete it. It has always been available at s:el:Γλῶσσαι and of course we can't notify the person of the reason for deletion and they don't read english! It is great waste of effort on both our parts and this happens reapeatedly. If you have any questions please ask me.--Birgitte§β ʈ Talk 16:41, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Sorry, but the software doesnt work in any language other than english, maybe in the future it will, but it isnt a priority at the moment. Martin 21:51, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

AWB 1.7?[edit]

E-mail me the source code for the newest version (1.6.2, I presume) and I can implement all the changes I made. These include: typo fixes, added bad link repair, sorting headings at the end of articles, and a new user detect script (currently, if a user ABCD is on the "allowed" list and AB logs on, AB will be allowed - I fixed this). I can then zip the source code and send it back to you to compile and put online. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 02:27, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi, I checked over your additions, thanks, all good except that the external links fixer regex appears to remove pipes (" | ") from normal wiki links sometimes, try it on George W. Bush, and the section order sorter is to easily confused at the moment, mainly for the reason you point out in your email. to be honest I dont think it would be possible to do it reliably, because apart from the existing problem it would always be confused by sub headings to the various sections, which is pretty common. thanks Martin 21:49, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Looking at the Bush article, your metadata script duplicates the persondata - i.e., it appears twice. Check to make sure the replace metadata with "" works. As for removing the pipe, I can't figure that out - it's only supposed to remove the pipe if the link begins with http://. Finally, I don't think the subheadings will be a problem - who puts a subheading under external links, anyways? Is was trying a script that replaced all double equals with &temp; - that is, find ([^=])==([^=]) and replace with $1&temp;$2, then sort the headings chopping at &temp;, and then replace &temp; with == but it wouldn't work. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 21:59, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
An idea - in private void Start(), after checking the wikistatus, add a script that navigates one of the browser to an arbitrary page, e.g., the main page, and searches the HTML code for
<div class="usermessage">You have
. If it finds this, an alert pops up asking you to read your messages before continuing, and then navigates the main browser to your user talk page (or the diff link provided in that message box). This way, if someone leaves a comment, e.g., to say that one of the fixes you are applying should be stopped, the AWB doesn't let you fix anything until you read that comment. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 22:08, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Good spot on that meta duplication, fixed now. Unfortunately quite a lot of articles have sub headings in the external links sections, and I dont feel comfortable with something that can potentially cause damage. maybe we could have an alert that warned that the sections arent in order, then offered to try and fix it?
I used to have something that detected if the user had new messages, but I removed it for some reason, but actually I think you are right. I'll add it back now, thanks Martin 22:16, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Okay, the alert would work, too - after all, when a long article is a stub, you only have an alert, no action. Speaking of which, you might want to make the AWB remove all stub tags in that instace. For example, replace "\\{\\{.*?stub\\}\\}" (the non-greedy token so that it doesn't start with one template and end at another) with "". — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 22:23, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Ok, thats good, but one problem, it must ignore stub templates of the form {{tl|econ-stub}} and {{sect-stub}}. Martin 22:31, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
Would it be possible to do a script such as:
if (Regex.IsMatch(ArticleText, "\\{\\{(.*?)stub\\}\\}") && $1 != sect- && $1.substr(0,2) != tl) { Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\{\\{.*?stub\\}\\}", "") }
It would see if there is a stub template, then make sure it isn't sect-stub, and then make sure it isn't a tl, and then replace with nothing. The only problem is, I'm not sure if one can use the "$1" token from the previous statement in the next - that is, the $1 in the if statement is supposed to be the text in parenthesis before the word stub, but I'm not sure if it would work. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 22:41, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
For 1.6.3 (on the version info) - why does it say only internal? Did you remove external link fixing? What regexs did you improve? And, it says, "new messages cause it to check you are still an enabled user." (1) I thought it checks you're enabled every edit (from 1.4) and (2) shouldn't it say, stops you from editing until you check your messages, not see if you're enabled? I understand you might to check in case you remove someone from the list and send them a message, but, I think not editing at all would be better. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 23:04, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

The regex to fix external links was removing some pipes, so i havent enabled it yet. I cleaned up the large set of regexes I had done before, now much more efficient. It doesnt check you're enabled every edit (only that you are logged in) to do so would use up a lot of bandwidth. When you get a message it resets the wikistatus bool to false, meaning you can't edit anymore if your name has been removed from the user list. Martin 23:13, 8 January 2006 (UTC)

Fixed! The second line of regex (to remove the pipes) should be:
ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[http:\\/\\/([^[]]*?)\\|([^[]]*?)\\]", "[http://$1 $2]");
Check it on George W. Bush. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 23:31, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
In main.cs, where it checks to see if the article is too long to be a stub, replace the code with this and see if it works (I haven't tested the below):
if ((Regex.IsMatch(ArticleText, "[Ss]tub}}")) && (intLength > 3500))
 if (!Regex.IsMatch(ArticleText, "{{[Ss]ection-[Ss]tub}}"))
  if (!Regex.IsMatch(ArticleText, "{{tl|.*[Ss]tub}}"))
   ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "{{.*[Ss]tub}}", "");
This should (hopefully) help with stub removal. — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 23:39, 8 January 2006 (UTC)
I noticed that my fix for the pipe doesn't always work... I also noticed that Wikipedia:Bad links added a new item (space at end of external link)... and I also decided I should write a script to fix uneven bracketing on both internal and external links. So I did. So, find the section in parsers.cs where you put in my bad link fix and replace the whole two paragraph section (one for internal, one for external) with these three paragraphs:
            //fix uneven bracketing on links
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[http:\\/\\/(.*)\\]", "[http://$1]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[http:\\/\\/(.*)\\]\\]", "[http://$1]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[([^][]*?)\\]([^][])", "[[$1]]$2");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "([^][])\\[([^][]*?)\\]\\]", "$1[[$2]]");
            //repair bad external links
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[http:\\/\\/(.*)\\]\\]", "[http://$1]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[http:\\/\\/([^][]*?)\\|([^][]*?)\\]", "[http://$1 $2]");

            //repair bad internal links
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[(.*)  (.*)\\]\\]", "[[$1 $2]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[ (.*)\\]\\]", "[[$1]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[(.*) \\]\\]", "[[$1]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[(.*) #(.*)\\]\\]", "[[$1#$2]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[(.*)__(.*)\\]\\]", "[[$1_$2]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[_(.*)\\]\\]", "[[$1]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[(.*)_\\]\\]", "[[$1]]");
            ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[(.*)_#(.*)\\]\\]", "[[$1#$2]]");
In addition, why 1.6.3? Wouldn't 1.7 be better since there were a few major changes (security patch, bad link repair, etc.)? — MATHWIZ2020 TALK | CONTRIBS 01:36, 9 January 2006 (UTC)

Hi, this diff (at the top) demonstrates a problem that can be caused be the regex ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[http:\\/\\/(.*)\\]\\]", "[1]");, as you can see it removes a bracket when it shouldnt, can you see how this could be fixed? thanks (congrats on the rfa!) Martin 16:19, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

In parsers, replace the first two lines of the uneven bracket fixer with:
ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[\\[http:\\/\\/([^][]*?)\\]", "[http://$1]");
ArticleText = Regex.Replace(ArticleText, "\\[http:\\/\\/([^][]*?)\\]\\]", "[http://$1]");
I also noticed that the uneven bracket fixer accidentally fixes external links of the form [[2]], so you can remove the first line of "repair bad external links", leaving only the pipe fixer.--M@thwiz2020 20:49, 13 January 2006 (UTC)

Problem with new version of AWB[edit]

I'm trying to download 1.67, but it's not coming through. When I click on the zip it gives me the error "Cannot open file: does not appear to be a valid archive." Would it be possible to leave two versions enabled on Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/CheckPage, so I could at least use the version I have? Just a suggestion. --Kbdank71 14:55, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

hmmm seems to download ok for me, I have enabled 1.66 though anyway. try again later, thanks. Martin 14:57, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Red Link Finder[edit]

Someone left a comment on my talk page asking if I could make a red/blue link sorter. (Someone else beat me to it, but their's isn't user friendly.) Can you please e-mail me the source code so I can adapt it? I know how to program in C# but can't figure out how to start a new GUI (or most of the code, for that matter), so I thought that, if I could use yours as a base, it would help me considerably. Thanks! --M@thwiz2020 19:27, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Stubs and categories[edit]

Mr. BlueMoose, your AutoWikiBrowser seems to move stub templates below category listings. Why does it do this? Is this advisable? Babajobu 23:43, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

It is good to have them that at the bottom, out of the actual article text. Martin 23:51, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
But don't they usually precede the list of categories? Not just in how they appear, but in where they are placed? Babajobu 23:53, 14 January 2006 (UTC)
It doesnt make any difference, being after the categories they are look better as otherwise they often end up merging into the "See also" or "external links" section, which looks messy. Martin 23:55, 14 January 2006 (UTC)

Please add me to user list for Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser[edit]

This tool will help a lot with my editing, thanks! Mushintalk 15:37, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Enough with the wikify already[edit]

As someone who is industriously trying to wikify articles, I find it very discouraging that you have flagged literally 1000's of articles as wikify in the past 24 hours. Many and probably most of them need it, certainly, but there are now so many that I'm just feeling "What's the use?". Perhaps your AWB could be a bit less picky or perhaps you yourself could wikify for a while (Hmmm, 6 months might help clear the backlog). Sorry to seem peevish, here, but my morale has just hit bottom. Madman 22:13, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

Eh? I am not actually making these crap articles and it is better to have them flagged as crap than just floating about, many of them (including probable copyvios) havent been touched for months as well. Sorry if it hurts your morale, but at least this way they will become better (or get deleted). (btw, there are only a few thousand left, but I think I'll call it a day now anyway).

Hold your temper, Martin. And don't insult Thomas Crapper, please. Maybe, while going through the list of "wikify" candidates in AWB, you could speedily delete and tag as copy-vios as necessary. --M@thwiz2020 22:34, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
I have been, and also performing some clean up tasks as well. Martin 22:35, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

How long is an unstubby stub?[edit]

Regarding User:Bluemoose/Unstubby stubs, I was wondering what you use as a criteria for inclusion on the list. Also, could I be added to the list for WP:AWB? I've got 3500+ edits, and would like to make small updates to many different articles, based on SQL queries run on the toolserver. --Interiot 22:17, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

I found stubs with more than 12,000 characters, that is quite a lot though, so I might make it less next time. I'll add your name now. Martin 22:21, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
