Wrong archive[edit]

Your iabot keeps mangling a url on the book of common prayer page, . In the Oceania section it changes this: A New Zealand Prayer Book, He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa
to this: A New Zealand Prayer Book, He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa

This web archive page is nothing to do with the New Zealand prayer book. Sorry about the 'Trout' but I have no idea how to fix or report this, hence this message, in a no doubt inappropriate forum... Sunblade1500 (talk) 11:12, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi there. I went ahead and did an initial investigation and reported it at Phab ticket and also made a correction to the article which includes some {{cbignore}} tags just in case so it won't happen again. It looks possibly caused by those extra {{ and }} though Cyberpower will need to determine. -- GreenC 01:42, 22 September 2017 (UTC)
This is an old edit. Just revert those you see. IABot shouldn't be making those mistakes anymore.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:18, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

Well, thank you GreenC and Cyberpower678 for fixing this, I hope the fix sticks! And I don't have to make more noise in a few months time when a bot reviews the page again...! May the Peace of Christ be with you.Sunblade1500

IABot stripping https from[edit]


I've noticed IABot is stripping https back to http in certain cases with links... any idea why? As far as I can tell, those links work via https, so wouldn't that be the preferred URL format to list them in? —Joeyconnick (talk) 17:06, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

Arrgh... sorry, forgot to give an example. —Joeyconnick (talk) 17:24, 22 September 2017 (UTC)

I need to update the DB entries to HTTPS. I made the update to the code, but I forgot to update the DB.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:19, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

About the 1RR thing[edit]

How am I supposed to be able to edit when editors game my restriction on something so simple as reverting a POV tag? I have reverted the removal but I'm pretty sure it won't last long. One look at the talk page shows three discussions about neutrality, the editor who reverted me has made one comment, claimed consensus and that's it? I have opened an RFC, but a POV tag is not meant to be removed until discussions are done, I could use some advice on such a situation thanks. Darkness Shines (talk) 05:33, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

I was right, already reverted Darkness Shines (talk) 05:34, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

It's always better to consult a 3rd neutral party to assess this. I don't know the full details, but you started an RfC and placed the tag. As far as process is concerned, the cannot be removed until the discussion is resolved, so I have re-instated the tag, and have the tag linking directly to the discussion.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:28, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I gotta admit, this is the weirdest article talk page I have ever encountered. Darkness Shines (talk) 17:07, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
@Darkness Shines: This is where I recommend getting a WP:3O and having them comment there.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 17:34, 24 September 2017 (UTC)


Hi Cyberpower678, bar.wp is ready for the InternetArchiveBot:

Many thanks in advance! --Joe Watzmo (talk) 09:29, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

Noted thank you.


Hello. Can you write here some real exemples of the messages below (without {}). So I hope to better understand them and make a good translation (some of them are already translated but I want to be sure of the meaning for my translation) :

  • Hello fellow editors,\n\nI have just modified {linksrescued} external links on [[{namespacepage}]]. Please take a moment to review [{diff} my edit]. If you have any questions, or need the bot to ignore the links, or the page altogether, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information. I made the following changes:\n{modifiedlinks}\nPlease refer to the FaQ for information on correcting errors with the bot.\n\nCheers.",
  • "Hello fellow editors,\n\nI have found one or more external links on [[{namespacepage}]] that are in need of attention. Please take a moment to review the links I found and correct them on the article if necessary. I found the following problems:\n{modifiedlinks}\nWhen you have finished making the appropriate changes, please visit this simple FaQ for additional information to fix any issues with the URLs mentioned above.\n\nThis notice will only be made once for these URLs.\n\nCheers.",
  • Hello. During the archive process, the archive returned errors for one or more sites that I submitted for archiving.\nBelow, I have included the links that returned with an error and the following error message.\n\n{problematiclinks}\nIn any event this will be the only notification in regards to these links, and no further attempt will be made to archive the links.\n\nCheers.",
  • {link} is found to be dead. Recommend adding {newarchive} to the original URL.",
  • {link} is found to be dead. No archive was found.",
  • {link} is considered to be dead, however has been found to be alive. Recommend removing the dead flag from the URL.",
  • Added archive {newarchive} to {link}",
  • Replaced archive link {oldarchive} with {newarchive} on {link}",
  • Corrected formatting/usage for {link}",
  • Added {{dead link}} tag to {link}",

@Supertoff: Talk:George_Herriman#External_links_found_that_need_fixing is one example.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:33, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Talk:List_of_awards_and_nominations_received_by_Björk is another page full of examples. Hopefully it helps.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:35, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
OK. A question :
In my mind, if you add something, you just add "" before the URL ? Am I right ? Supertoff (talk) 16:48, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Not really. IABot, adds archive using archive templates or using the archiveurl parameter in citation templates. But it ultimately depends on the behavior and process your wiki follows.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 17:39, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
if I understand correctly : add the archive URL in a parameter in the template in addition to the URL parameter (if the model accepts both parameters at the same time) Right ? Supertoff (talk) 18:20, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Or use an archive template. On enwiki we have {{Cite web}}. For the plain regular links to add an archive to those we use {{Webarchive}}.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 18:22, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
{{Cite web}} in french is [1] whitout archive parameter. {{Webarchive}} as no french equivalent. I will keep in my mind your answer to translate as good as I can. Supertoff (talk) 18:48, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
Believe it or not, it does. It's just not documented. I trolled through the code when I found inconsistencies in the code and discovered that it does work.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 18:50, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
@Supertoff: See this.—CYBERPOWER (Around) 20:15, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
You should ask FDo64 and Zebulon84 to hereexplain if it works and how. I don't know the module. Supertoff (talk) 21:04, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
@Supertoff: I already confirmed it works. If you take a look at the rendered output, you'll find the archive link there, in place of the archive link generated by the Wikiwix gadget.—CYBERPOWER (Around) 21:33, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Just FYI Cyberpower, if you ever hit a snag and need someone to act as translator in some discussion I'm completely fluent in both English and French (ah, the perks of growing up in Montreal....) :) 22:42, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
    @Salvidrim!: That would certainly be useful. Could you act as a liaison for me and the French Wikipedia in regards to IABot?—CYBERPOWER (Message) 23:04, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
    On one hand, I'm gonna say "sure", but on the other hand keep in mind I have no reputation nor history with frwiki to speak of. :p Ben · Salvidrim!  23:06, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
    @Supertoff: Salvidrim! is an enwiki administrator that speaks French. Any chance you two could work together to help make it easier for me to communicate with the frwiki community?—CYBERPOWER (Message) 23:08, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
