Can't report False Positives[edit]

I can't report false positives, because it always throws me "404 - Not Found". What's going on? --ToonLucas22 (talk) 19:20, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

Wikimedia Labs had maintenance; my guess is that's mucked it up. Pinging Rich Smith for a start. Yngvadottir (talk) 04:20, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I think they already do. Or something similar--5 albert square (talk) 22:50, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
As the above comment states, there is already a link to an explanation of each bot on the userpage. Rjd0060 (talk) 02:53, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

It should be changed to "True" because the bot is currently running as seen here: . Thanks. Yoshi24517Chat Online 16:52, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

People replacing {{deadlink}} and the prior url with a spam link[edit]

There are a number of companies promoting this practice including this one [1]

The edit looks like this [2]. Not sure if this is something that cluebot could address? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:18, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure that's something that ClueBot can help with. Would have thought that would be more XLinkBot. Pinging in @Versageek: to get their view--5 albert square (talk) 21:30, 28 February 2015 (UTC)
Might be something the Wikipedia:Edit filter could also work on. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:43, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Yes, a false positive. But the report interface is down again ... Yngvadottir (talk) 05:12, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
@Rich Smith: @DamianZaremba: to make you guys aware that the false positive tool is down at the moment--5 albert square (talk) 05:34, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
It looks like the webservice crashed but the labs controller didn't get notified so it wasn't automatcally restarted :( - RichT|C|E-Mail 11:42, 1 March 2015 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Bot requests[edit]

User:ClueBot III is archiving bot requests that haven't been dealt with. I have just had to reinstate one of these. — Smjg (talk) 13:11, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

@Smjg: The bot is currently set to archive threads older than 168 hours, not whether they have been dealt with or not. Therefore it's not going outside of its code. --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 15:22, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
But clearly it isn't doing this on every single page on Wikipedia, so what's making it do it on this one? This needs to be changed somehow so that it doesn't remove entries from queues of requests waiting to be dealt with. — Smjg (talk) 23:16, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
Different discussion pages have different archiving settings. If you edit the first section of Wikipedia:Bot requests, you will find a {{User:ClueBot III/ArchiveThis}} template, this contains the settings specific to that page. Within that you will find |age=168, so threads will be archived if 168 hours have elapsed since the last activity on the thread. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:43, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

re. Bovril[edit]

Hi there! I saw that the Infobox was missing from "Bovril", so, I decided to add it. FYI, the other additions by are NOT by me. With kind regards. --Aristo Class (talk) 16:26, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

@Aristo Class: Hi, please keep in mind that ClueBot NG is a robot and not a human. Its job is to revert vandalism, not regulate article content. The revert it made on the article you mentioned was unrelated to your edits. Thanks, --I am k6ka Talk to me! See what I have done 15:23, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
