  • Hello!! I am Cyberpower678. I am an administrator on Wikipedia. Despite that, I'm still your run of the mill user here on Wikipedia.
  • I specialize in bot work and tools, but I lurk around RfPP, AfD, AIV, and AN/I, as well as RfA. If you have any questions in those areas, please feel free to ask. :-)
  • I also serve as a mailing list moderator and account creator over at the Account Creation Center. If you have any questions regarding an account I created for you, or the process itself, feel free to email the WP:ACC team or me personally.
  • At current I have helped to create accounts for 2511 different users and renamed 786 other users.
  • Disputes or discussions that appear to have ended or is disputed will be archived.

All the best.—cyberpower

InternetArchiveBot and Listeria[edit]

InternetArchiveBot should not edit content that is maintained by ListeriaBot; its edits will simply be over-written. The simplest way to test for this would be to check for the presence of {{Wikidata list}} (or local equivalents, per Template:Wikidata list (Q19860885)). Any required updates should instead be made in Wikidata, from where the content is sourced. For an example where this is an issue, see species:Repositories/Wikidata.

Pigsonthewing, Is it possible to have ListeriaBot use the {{nobots}} template on those pages. IABot respects those.—CYBERPOWER (Happy Easter) 15:55, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Wouldn't that stop ListeriaBot form doing its work? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:05, 21 April 2019 (UTC)
Pigsonthewing, Oh yea. I guess I need to treat Wikidata list as a nobots template.—CYBERPOWER (Happy Easter) 19:33, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

IABot configuration for Azerbaijani Wikipedia[edit]

Hello. What should I do to add IABot to azwiki?--NMW03 (talk) 18:45, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

NMW03, Start a discussion there to see if there is support for the bot, gather a couple of translators and come back to me. :-)—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:31, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

InternetArchiveBot[edit]

Hello Cyberpower678, sorry for posting here, but in eswiki the bot's reporting system writes automatically in the local user talk page. Let me know if you have troubles with spanish language. -- Leoncastro (talk) 20:06, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Leoncastro, If you could translate your post into English, I would greatly appreciate it. Google Translate is not always reliable.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:32, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Using IABot to add archive links to links that aren't dead[edit]

Hi there, I'm trying to get a little more information about IABot. One of the articles I work on was edited yesterday using IABot, the user added 151 Internet Archive links to all of the external links in the pages references. I reverted the edit because none of the 151 links were dead, they all still worked. The user said they "did this to combat link rot." Is this something you've seen lots of editors using the bot for, or a use that you were aware of? Is there a wider discussion about this sort of usage?-- Patrick, oѺ 22:09, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

Hey It's very mean to address me with "they". As you can see I have already disclosed that I am a male in my user page. I don't like to be addressed by genderneutral pronouns. Sincerely, Masum Reza 01:48, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
@Masumrezarock100: Users are not obligated to check your userpage to see how you prefer to be addressed. When user's are uncertain of gender, it's polite to use they unless instructed otherwise. If you don't like being called "they", I would suggest adding a gender symbol in your signature identifying you as male.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:36, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Patrickneil, Yes I have. It's up to the editor that invokes the bot whether or not to rescue live links. They do so with knowing that they take responsibility for the edit made on their behalf.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:36, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Okay, thanks, I have never seen this specific use of archive.org links before, so wasn't sure about calling out the user (who as you see followed me here) if it was a potential misuse of your bot. Adding an "archivelink" to a source that works seems like a solution in search of a problem to me, and one that should probably receive some discussion before wider implementation, I just don't know where exactly to post that discussion. Thanks again.-- Patrick, oѺ 16:05, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Wrong ukrainian grammatical cases[edit]

Hi! Your InternetArchiveBot mistakenly replaces genitive case of month names with nominative within dates (Ukrainian: Ваш InternetArchiveBot помилково замінює родовий відмінок назв місяців у датах називним). For example, https://uk.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=24970760. --Рассилон (talk) 07:38, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Рассилон, I could have sworn that I fixed this months ago. I'll have to take another look.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:37, 24 April 2019 (UTC)

Unbalanced tags in bot sig[edit]

I don't know if this is still the case, but your bot sig is or was at one point missing two html end tags, which can have knock-on effects on any Talk page discussions following the sig of this bot. It (used to) look like this:

[[User:Cyberbot II|<sup style="color:green;font-family:Courier">cyberbot II]]<small><sub style="margin-left:-14.9ex;color:green;font-family:Comic Sans MS">[[User talk:Cyberbot II|<span style="color:green">Talk to my owner]]:Online</sub></small>

What it should look like (probably; depends how you want it) is this:

[[User:Cyberbot II|<sup style="color:green;font-family:Courier">cyberbot II</sup>]]<small><sub style="margin-left:-14.9ex;color:green;font-family:Comic Sans MS">[[User talk:Cyberbot II|<span style="color:green">Talk to my owner</span>]]:Online</sub></small>

Perhaps you've fixed this already, in which case it's moot. You could also use {{Green|lorem ipsum}} rather than <span style="color:green">lorem ipsum</span>}} which you might find easier.

Furthermore, your subscript is already in green, so you don't really need to double up on it with the <span>, as it's still within scope of the <sub>, unless you want to force it to green no matter the link state (active, visited, unvisited) which is what happens now.

80k uses. A WP:Bot request can probably be submitted. --Izno (talk) 13:10, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
Mathglot, Fake news. JK. But it's old news, and long fixed.—CYBERPOWER (Chat) 14:38, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
