Cydebot is not finishing some CFD deletions[edit]

Hi Cyde, your estimable Cydebot sometimes declines to finish deletions listed at WP:CFDW. At any rate it is not emptying Category:ESPY Award winners‎, even though these seem to be categorised only in the usual way (not via a template). However, it did just empty Category:Nudity in film. Looking at past contribs, I see that it removed the category from most ESPY award winners, but left the last three (Betsy King, Lorena Ochoa, Dottie Pepper). Rather than complete the task manually, I have left them in case this may help you to diagnose something to fix.

Cydebot is also patchy in deleting the old category after renaming, e.g. Category:Military facilities of the United States in Germany to Category:Military installations of the United States in Germany. In at least some cases where it creates a redirect page at the old name and does not delete it, the category names are somewhat long; might it help if you extend the length of the string that it can handle for that purpose? – Fayenatic London 10:48, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

I'm looking into it. The bot is dying when it's trying to retrieve the pages in that particular category. No output, just dumps back to command line. Weird! I'm trying to figure out what's going on. --Cyde Weys 14:58, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. For the second point, here is a permalink showing a list of successes and failures in deleting the old category after a multiple rename of church buildings categories, in which I cannot discern any pattern. – Fayenatic London 13:34, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
I see user:Armbrust edited those 3 remaining ESPY pages manually, after which Cydebot deleted the empty category. – Fayenatic London 21:08, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Cydebot is still acting inconsistently:
Grateful for your continued attention. – Fayenatic London 08:14, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
