Thanks Cobi

Thanks for fixing my page, have one of these but... What did you do to fix it?

The problem exists because, for certain parameters, like the format, whitespace between the "=" and the first character is sensitive, so I just made it whitespace sensitive for all parameters. This means that ClueBot III will try to convert " User talk" into a numerical namespace (all the namespaces have a canonical and numerical equivalent). When it does this, it fails and defaults to 0, the main namespace. There is no prefix so the API errors and starts listing the pages from the beginning. I should probably do something to fix this, but the temp fix is to just fix the template. -- Cobi(t|c|b) 18:31, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Help needed

Hello. I am a student of the Alexandria Agriculture College, and the whole idea of Wikipedia and the Wikimania foundation in general has inspired me to make a student encyclopedia for my college. Students of the college would have the right to add info to such encyclopedia, and tags indicating that an article has been review by a professor, and so on. I have noticed that ClueNet is very similar to wikipedia. I mean is it some how a subbranch of wikipedia, and if it is, can we build our student wikipedia the same way? I hope that you provide me with a simple explanation since i apparently know nothing about that. Thanks in advance. --( ΡHARAOH  The Muslim  23:26, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

ClueNet is not just a wiki site, it is a free shell provider. It is also not affiliated with wikipedia in any way. It runs the same wiki software though, called MediaWiki. If you have access to a web server, you can use MediaWiki to make this college site you speak of, but you would need a bit of computer knowledge. You should check out this link for more information. Thanks, TheDJAtClubRock :-) (T/C) 00:12, 4 March 2009 (UTC).
Thank you very much. can i, and/or other students contact you in the future for technical help, and guidance? --( ΡHARAOH  The Muslim  18:40, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Research Request

Hi there Cobi. I'm an anthropology student doing a project on the operation of Wikipedia. I would love to talk to you at some point, proably about the non-technical aspects of your Cluebots. Please let me know if that might be possible. I would really appreciate.

Cheers and thanks Rodomontade (talk) 00:19, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

I tried to use the correct page for the report but for whatever reason the connection keeps being reset, probably an error at my end. ID, 619864 here. The edit was correct Nigger (dog) is a valid article and shouldn't be reverted. Enter CambridgeBayWeather, waits for audience applause, not a sausage 16:29, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

It's an acknowledged problem. Cobi's doing what he can to move it to another address. Xclamation point 01:20, 6 March 2009 (UTC)

Interface

Hello Cobi,

I am a little interested in making programs that modify MediaWiki-powered sites from the client end. Do you have any knowledge to that extent?

Thanks, 24.29.43.249 (talk) 22:29, 7 March 2009 (UTC) (Or User:Gnorthup)

Student encyclopedia

Hello again. I am the Alexandria Agriculture college student who asked about making "wikipedia-like" websites in the previous archive. I have talked to our college's chief minister, and he agreed with the idea. I was wondering if you are interested in helping us starting it. The reason i am asking you, is that you have already done that before with ClueNet, and we would be very grateful to get some help. Thanks in advance. --( ΡHARAOH  The Muslim  18:18, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

cluebot can't report a false pos

Hi,

Re. this edit

Responding to a user helpme, they'd edited part of a sex support NGO,

I told them to follow the instructions for reporting a false positive but they were unable to.

I had the same timeout issue with the reporting, so under advice on IRC, I re-did the change myself, and will see if it gets reverted again.

See User talk:Peto Australis and then User_talk:Chzz#casa_entry,

Please throw a talkback on my userpage when you respond.

Thx --  Chzz  ►  22:58, 16 March 2009 (UTC)
