Substituting FFD templates[edit]

Hi Hellknowz. Just wanted to let you know I mentioned you in WT:FFD#Substituting templates. Just asking for clarification regarding whether certain FFD templates should be substituted. Any clarification you might be able to provide would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance. -- Marchjuly (talk) 01:26, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for notifying me, I'll reply there. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 01:45, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

"Gamer" film[edit]

Hey HK, when you have a chance, can I get your opinion on the reliability of the sources used in Gamer (2011 film)? They're in Russian. I had previously removed the first two listings but they were added back. Not sure what to make of the other outlets either. czar 10:57, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

  • [1] - just a data entry like IMDB. It's a video delivery/streaming site ("online-cinema" is what they call themselves), they stream some big names and apparently have good traffic, apparently they got a bunch of nominations/rewards, though for streaming and their apps and such, not factual content; they don't have anything editorial-related; ratings are user.
  • [2] - no author info, looks like catalogue entry almost, overall a bloggy Ukrainian movie website, ratings are user, authors have no real info, no other info. Main page sidebar says "Авторы и блоги (TOP-12)" (Authors and blogs Top-12), so yeah. Doesn't look like any editorial stuff happens there.
  • [3], [4] - magazine since 1931, probably reliable, have an editor team and all that
  • [5] - looks like news aggregate (or whatever they are called, kind of like Reuters), the article itself is a press release (it looks like it and I get more search hits on its text)

Very quick checks. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 13:23, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Appreciate it. Do you have any major hits for replacement references or do you think it's worth taking to AfD? czar 14:21, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
Haha, are you asking to search for "Gamer"? Anyway, [6] here's a generic search, [7] her's with word "review".
There's probably more. It's big feature film with an international (Russian speaking countries) release. Unfortunately, it's Ukrainian, so it didn't get the same coverage as a Russian movie would (which isn't that much either). I think it's probably notable, but trying to search through unorganized unveted sources is... well, yeah. The difference in culture regarding product reviews is palpable when trying to search for sources. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 15:00, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

H3llBot[edit]

Hi, why did H3llBot stop it's tasks back in 2013? I think it did a great job! Just curious. I know Cyberpower678 has a bot that is trying to start some of these tasks himself, however, if you had any sourcecode, or insight I bet that it will be appriciated. Myself, I'm just curious why the bot stopped. (tJosve05a (c) 12:10, 10 February 2016 (UTC)

Hey! I didn't really have the time to maintain it because of real world stuff. The archiving task had a lot of tiny issues on various sites. I've detailed a lot of them in various BRFAs about archiving since. Unfortunately, I also lost one of my hard drives and a significant portion of updates to the code, which I haven't had the motivation to redo. I also have my hands full with User:AAlertBot when I get some more free time. I keep thinking about the task, but I really don't have the voluntary time I had before. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK 12:52, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
Cyberbot is making good progress in development actually. Adding features is becoming easier and easier.—cyberpowerBe my Valentine:Online 13:54, 10 February 2016 (UTC)
