Bug: wrong link fix by ClueBot IIII

The bot tried to fix a link to archived content, but the link is an interwiki link and points to dewiki. The old link is still correct: [1] Merlissimo 16:28, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Template Uniform

Warning Template #1 by ClueBot regarding unconstructive edits appears to be bulleted. #2, #3 and #4 are not. You might want to make it look more professional. Mechamind90 (talk) 22:52, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

YOURE BACK!!!!

I missed you dearly, my metal friend. :) Tom A8UDI 06:23, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Now we have less things to worry about.  Merlion  444  09:14, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

"Reverting possible vandalism by 208.11.179.205 to version by SMC. False positive? Report it. Thanks, ClueBot." - that's one of the most comforting things I've seen on my watchlist in a long time. *pats ClueBot* SMC (talk) 18:13, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

Welcome back! It's simply smashing to see you editing again. Enigmamsg 18:40, 30 November 2009 (UTC)

I love you Cluebot, you inspire me to live, keep up the great work!!!! from Sean Green

I see you really helped a lot in the past, and you continue to do so. Keep up the good work, Cluebot! --XypherWolf (talk) 02:24, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Nice to have you back, ClueBot. Now I need to find something else to do instead of reverting vandalism. :P Reach Out to the Truth 19:09, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Hurray! The ClueBots are back! I was going to start a mystery-type case and everything! There's no need to do that anymore! --Hadger 21:52, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

?????!!!!! Oh great. Time for redirecting my memorial page for it. 23191Pa (chat me!) 06:31, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Hooray for archiving!

Wikipedia:Requests for feedback is in desperate need of automated archival. It was handled by Werdnabot until recently, but it appears that it is done for good (User talk:Werdna). Cluebot would be the perfect solution. I was hoping someone could help out with the "archiveprefix" parameter since I don't know if it would conflict with the other pages already archived. I also wanted to see if it would dump in the current list of archives Wikipedia:Requests for feedback/Archives. It looks like this isn't the first change on that page since there is a Wikilink to another archive. Sorry to ask for someone to hold my hand. Any help would be appreciated.Cptnono (talk) 07:49, 5 December 2009 (UTC)

Awesome thanks for the help. Cptnono (talk) 21:35, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
I attempted to use the "archivenow" parameter with the Done tmeplate. It has not archived. Any toughts on what I might be doing wrong?Cptnono (talk) 10:10, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Damn you ClueBot.

I was just about to revert some vandalism when you did it instead a split second later. You are clearly the better man, I mean bot. But then I'm not a bot. Hmmm...--Sooo Kawaii!!! ^__^ (talk) 14:06, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Bug with ClueBot III fixing links to discussions

ClueBot III made this edit, supposedly to fix a link to an archived discussion, but it didn't archive the relevant discussion. Graham87 10:47, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Fortaleza Esporte Clube

As I was saying in the report page, I just tried to revert an edit from article to the last edit right before an IP (189.21.167.107) brought the text from pt.wikipedia (in English, a machine translated text) which was unintelligible (many mistakes regarding the language and information about the club). The text is vast and will demand 'ages' to be corrected with lots of infos to be researched and correctly translated. I really felt that the best option was to move the article back to this edit: 11:08, 4 December 2009 Xqbot (talk | contribs) m (9,949 bytes). The idea was to work on the text in Portuguese and then keep bringing it in parts to en.wiki. Just that. I have chatted with Carioca (talk), consulting with him to see the best way to solve this question. I stress that I believe that the article, the way it is now, is confusing and requires too much work. Much better to keep improving it as we have properly translated material. Regards! Maisonneuve (talk) 23:02, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

False negative on Stéphane Auger

This page has been hit pretty hard with vandalism considering the length of the page and the not-that-high profile of its subject. So I'm not sure if there's anything that can be done about the way ClueBot handled it. But, in any case. This edit was a reversion of some vandalism, but it didn't go back far enough -- the last good edit of the page was over a month ago. Since then, people have either vandalized the page or come along and made valid contributions without removing the vandalism. So, again, not sure whether ClueBot can really do anything about that -- but there you go. Thanks! Camanda (talk) 01:54, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Archive Box cleanup

I've just added auto-archiving by ClueBot III to my talk page. It seemed to archive properly. I fixed the formatting of my archive naming, and now my first ClueBot-created archive is at User talk:Tckma/Archives/November 2009. The archive box on User talk:Tckma points to former locations of that archive. Additionally, I'd like my pre-ClueBot archives (the archive box directly below ClueBot's) to be included in ClueBot's generated list. Any ideas on how I'd go about this? Thanks.

Misc

Uh,be quiet,quit interfering with edits!174.54.139.150 (talk) 03:19, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Hello ClueBot, I'm NocturneSoul. I wish to know why is my contributions on List of Books about Jesus being deleted automatically. I didn't write any obscenity as the message says. all I did was writing exactly this: Rice, Anne "Christ The Lord" (2005) Ediciones B, Grupo Z, ISBN 84-666-3072-4 How is that obscene? Thank You. —Preceding unsigned comment added by NocturneSoul (talkcontribs) 21:03, 15 December 2009 (UTC) --NocturneSoul (talk) 21:06, 15 December 2009 (UTC)


Hi, the age under Foxy_Brown_(rapper) is incorrect. Her birth certificate cites her birth date as September 6, 1978 however, someone has incorrectly protected her birthdate as September 6, 1979. Sources of birthdate: http://www.nndb.com/crime/307/000043178/. It is also listed on her polcie report. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.149.196.223 (talk) 03:49, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Duplicate monthly headers

ClueBot still duplicates monthly headers: [3]. Any idea when this will finally be fixed?--Oneiros (talk) 01:27, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

I arrived here to ask the same question. For instance, see this. (Of course, human editors who issue subsequent warnings could make the correction, but they never seem to.) Rivertorch (talk) 16:51, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
This seems to be a long standing bug (search the archives). This bot is still maintained, right?--Oneiros (talk) 00:21, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
It isn't a bug. The bot simply appends a template to the bottom of the talk page. It originally didn't have the header. Someone thought that the header would be a good idea and added it to the vandal1 template. Yes, the bot is still maintained. Making it so it could find the header and insert at the bottom of the correct header is a lot harder than you may think. It would have to parse all of the headers out into individual sections, parse anything that looks like a date into a date (which is somewhat tricky), then find which section corresponds to the correct date and then append the template there. Then it would have to reconstruct the sections and save the page. It's only ever brought up as a "nice to have" once in a blue moon, and as such, I do not think that it is a very important fix. If you gain some wider consensus that says that it is imperative that this get fixed, then maybe it will get fixed, but currently, it's a case of WONTFIX. -- Cobi(t|c|b) 05:12, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Understood. I'd still like to see the explanation in a FAQ or so.--Oneiros (talk) 13:16, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

User indice random links

Why is my indice full of random links? I would like to start automatically archiving my talk pages, but everytime I apply the template, these large amount of links appear. --The Taerkasten (talk) 21:02, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Because you put a space between "archiveprefix=" and the archive prefix. -- Cobi(t|c|b) 23:52, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
So, how can this be fixed? --The Taerkasten (talk) 12:52, 18 December 2009 (UTC)
Yes, if you don't put the space there, just like every other working ClueBot III archive template, it should work fine. -- Cobi(t|c|b) 09:37, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't seem to have worked. Those links are still there. --The Taerkasten (talk) 13:30, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
Never mind. It's worked now, thanks. --The Taerkasten (talk) 14:32, 19 December 2009 (UTC)

Maybe shouldn't report IP:s testing the User:ClueBot/Sandbox page?

Hi!

I was ofcourse curious of this robot, so I logged out and wrote some profanities in the User:ClueBot/Sandbox page, and it did get reverted.

But I also noted that my IP got reported.

I thought the Sandbox-page would be handled in a special maner so that one could test the robot without concerns about getting one's IP blocked? Algotr (talk) 22:43, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

I agree. Yes, you can get reverted on ClueBot's sandbox, but since you can't get reverted by ClueBot on the regular sandbox, ClueBot's sandbox should be a test for others where you see ClueBot revert edits, but not warn you, because this is a sandbox where you shouldn't be warned. --Hadger 17:53, 19 December 2009 (UTC)
