Hey, You might want to check on wherever Cydebot is running. It seems to be making many login attempts, and failing. As of writing, it is currently blocked from logging in for 2 days... Please confirm you can login as the bot manually, and potentially restart your script. Bots require an 8 character password now, so you might need to change it. Ping me if you need some more help with it. Reedy (talk) 01:35, 12 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for the notice. It started running again without any intervention on my part. I wonder if something was temporarily wrong with WMF Tool Labs, and then someone fixed it? --Cyde Weys 19:54, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello, Cyde. Please check your email; you've got mail!

I emailed Cyde a couple of days ago to say that Cydebot is not processing CFD requests. – Fayenatic London 22:04, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
Ah good, it's back. – Fayenatic London 13:13, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
The task to run CFD got hung on Tools Lab Grid. So I killed it and restarted it. That's unfortunate that tasks can just hang like that. --Cyde Weys 21:05, 2 December 2016 (UTC)

The Signpost: 4 November 2016[edit]

Recategorisation of ChildLine[edit]

ChildLine is not a 'crisis helpline' so Robot - Speedily moving category Helplines to Category:Crisis hotlines per CFDS. is incorrect. ChildLine is a free 24-hour counselling service for children and young people, ie it is available to those who are not in crisis, though that may be the case. Shipsview (talk) 14:08, 30 November 2016 (UTC)

Hi, @Shipsview: this category was nominated by RevelationDirect, here:[1]. The nomination was unopposed, and the rationale was valid for speedy renaming under WP:C2D, so I processed it.
If you think the title Crisis hotline is not the best one, please follow the method at WP:RM to open a discussion on moving it to a better name. – Fayenatic London 23:41, 2 December 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for the explanation Shipsview (talk)
