Eligible for CSD:G13 sign-up[edit]

Hi Hasteur. I've been searching for where to sign up for your bot delivering the "The following pages have become eligible for CSD:G13" message, but couldn't find it. Would you point me in the right direction? Thanks, -- Sam Sailor Talk! 07:07, 19 September 2015 (UTC)

They will never understand[edit]

Sometimes they just need to trust other people, but they will never understand. Fiddle Faddle 15:01, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

@Timtrent: RE G13 inquiries? Hasteur (talk) 16:26, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
That's the ones. Fiddle Faddle 16:27, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
@Timtrent: would you mind slapping JMHamo around for being a blazing idiot? Seriously, how many times do I have to repeat and explain with new words the same fucking concepts? Hasteur (talk) 15:01, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
If there were any point in doing so I would. I suggest you trout them. This is not hard to understand, unless one chooses to find it hard to understand. Fiddle Faddle 15:03, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

Clerk trouts[edit]

Please do not trout the arbitration clerks, even if one of them were to overlook your request to omit notifications. I spent a year in that role, and can attest that the clerks' job is fishy enough as it is. Regards, Newyorkbrad (talk) 16:54, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Then the clerks need to properly screen the list before they send the mass message. Hasteur (talk) 20:07, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Favor: Script review[edit]

Hi Hasteur. I'm new to working with pywikibot. Could I trouble you to review a script written by someone else to make sure nothing has changed with pywikibot in the last year that would break it? I would really appreciate it. โ€”โ€‰JJMC89โ€‰(TยทC) 05:23, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

@JJMC89: I'm having a hard time following the bot. Is could you put more comments into the script to help people who aren't 100% familiar with the code explain what it is this does? Also I was poking around en:wikinews:Portal:New York City/Wikipedia and couldn't get any pages to populate. I would seriously consider reviewing all the invocations of the User:Wikinews Importer Bot/config template (and chase down their Wikinews categories) prior to restarting this bot as it took digging through wikinews to find a published article to chase down the category, to chase down the template invocation in Portal:Sports and games/Sports news/Wikinews to see a positive case. Hasteur (talk) 13:30, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Apologies that the script is confusing; I didn't write it. I'll see what I can do with respect to commenting the code. If you compare the dev branch to the master, you can see the only change I made with the exception of adding the comment block at the top. What is the "established procedure" that the script isn't up to date with? n:Portal:New York City/Wikipedia requires articles in n:Category:New York City, which is empty (and deleted). When the bot was last run, this was the list of maintained pages. This pair works: Portal:New York/In the news/Wikinews โ† n:Portal:New York/Wikipedia. Thanks! โ€”โ€‰JJMC89โ€‰(TยทC) 20:32, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

DRN help needed and volunteer roll call[edit]

You are receiving this message because you have listed yourself on the list of volunteers at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Volunteering#List of the DRN volunteers.

First, assistance is needed at DRN. We have recently closed a number of cases without any services being provided for lack of a volunteer willing to take the case. There are at least three cases awaiting a volunteer at this moment. Please consider taking one.

Second, this is a volunteer roll call. If you remain interested in helping at DRN and are willing to actively do so by taking at least one case (and seeing it through) or helping with administrative matters at least once per calendar month, please add your name to this roll call list. Individuals currently on the principal volunteer list who do not add their name on the roll call list will be removed from the principal volunteer list after June 30, 2016 unless the DRN Coordinator chooses to retain their name for the best interest of DRN or the encyclopedia. Individuals whose names are removed after June 30, 2016, should feel free to re-add their names to the principal volunteer list, but are respectfully requested not to do so unless they are willing to take part at DRN at least one time per month as noted above. No one is going to be monitoring to see if you live up to that commitment, but we respectfully ask that you either live up to it or remove your name from the principal volunteer list.

Best regards, TransporterMan (talk ยท contribs) (Current DRN coordinator) (Not watching this page) Sent via MediaWiki message delivery (talk) 17:05, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

I've added you to the roll call list; as our bot operator you're exempt automatically. Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 17:17, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Can you not blindly revert me[edit]

[3] Look at the goddamn diff before you revert someone. Also, I never claimed anything like what you said, quit with the lie. Also, reverting someone twice does not make me an edit warrior. --QEDK (T โ˜• C) 15:32, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

@QEDK: I invite you to self revert right now as you are edit warring. If I do not hear back in 1 hour I WILL report you to AN:EW. Hasteur (talk) 15:33, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

Question regarding Commons:Deletion requests/File:Richardson mothership.jpg[edit]

Hi, thanks for your message on Commons. Yes, if you were able to visit the site and to photograph the building yourself there shouldn't be any problem, as you would then be the owner of the copyright in your own image. Although the architect will have copyright in the design of the building itself, the US has freedom of panorama which means that you are allowed to photograph the building without worrying about anybody else's copyright. It would be a useful thing to do, as there don't seem to be many photographs of it online. I found another one here (image towards the bottom of the page) but it's not free to use. If you'd like me to check the licensing and tagging of the photograph you eventually take, do feel free to leave me a note. --MichaelMaggs (talk) 12:59, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

Collect essay; second bite at the cherry[edit]

You participated in an MfD discussion about an essay by Collect that was in mainspace. The result was userfy and it was moved to user space accordingly. The essay has been moved back to mainspace. There is a discussion as to whether it should be renamed and moved. The discussion is here. Writegeist (talk) 00:48, 17 May 2016 (UTC)

API change will break your bot[edit]

Hey Hasteur,

I noticed that HasteurBot has been using http:// to access the API, rather than https:// This is going to break soon, because of upcoming changes to the API. You can find more information in this e-mail message. I'm encouraging people who need help updating their code to ask at w:en:Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard or on the mailing list.

diff. We can't have people challenging the support !votes ... --Dirk Beetstra T C 12:42, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

For what it is worth, I am also interested who is behind Special:Contributions/ ('reference') and Special:Contributions/ (and a couple more IPs performing these actions). --Dirk Beetstra T C 12:56, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

@Beetstra: If they move my challanges, I'm going to undo citing WP:TPO and warn them directly that if they do it again I'm going directly to AN. My bullshit tollerance threshold is already gone today. Hasteur (talk) 13:20, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
If yours stay, I am going to move mine back next week as well (oh the joy, my weekend starts now). Maybe I will even do it now.
The noindexer is active, but now discussing (yes, I really think it is Rotlink, and if Rotlink is not the owner, it may not be Rotlink but the owner). --Dirk Beetstra T C 13:25, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
@Beetstra: What I would do is copy your objections to suporters back to their original locations and collapse the portion that CFCF has put below. You get the "Revert" and at the same time not commit a WP:TPO violation yourself. I am a hairs breadth from filing a RFPP Semi (to the end of the RFC on the main and talk pages for this since the IP hopper can't stay put (and I would note that IP hopping was a symptom of the RotlinkBot/ botswarm). Hasteur (talk) 13:29, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
I am pretty sure it is him. Gaming the system. --Dirk Beetstra T C 13:34, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Please be advised that this does not violate WP:TPO โ€” the vote section is simply intended for votes โ€” as explained in the background section. The Oppose-section should similarly be parsed out to a new discussion section, but I will not do this because Beetstra chose to vote twice in different comments. It isn't about not allowing challenging comments, but about keeping discussion at one place so that we don't scare away new editors. Carl Fredik ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ“ง 18:41, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

Please show exactly what part of TPO it violates, because you're stragith out of line. Hope you like ANI drama because you did it again. I've marked it as Vandalism and will now proceed to ANI. Hasteur (talk) 18:48, 26 May 2016 (UTC)
There is an explicit instruction on how to comment, and I merely proceeded as per WP:TPO: Off-topic posts โ€” moving them to a section where they were better suited. There is nothing to be gained in the RfC by simultaneously discussing things in 3-4 different places! Carl Fredik ๐Ÿ’Œ ๐Ÿ“ง 18:52, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

In response to the HasteurBot on Draft:Granatanine concern. I think there exist encyclopedic notability[edit]

I created the 2 draft-pages, on Granatane (User:RIT RAJARSHI/Granatane) and Granatanine (Draft:Granatanine). ( Originally I attempted to create the pages because I did not knew how-to request an article) .

Though the created-draft-pages failed at review (because I could provide so-little informations). But still, I think, there is encyclopedic notability of these 2 topics. Because... the terms, Granatane and Granatanine, are often-used in the field of Alkaloids (Some alkaloids, allied to tropane, such as pseudopelletierine contains them in backbone), natural-products organic-chemistry, drug-action, Ligand-receptor interaction ( such as Sigma-2_receptor#Ligands ) etc.

But when I started search web on the main, backbone compound (and nomenclatural origin) compounds 9-azabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane [1] (Granatanine[2]) , and 9-methyl-9-azabicyclo[3.3.1]nonan-3-amine [3] (Granatane[4]), I could not found useful informations throughout web ( so I tried to request the article and attempted to create the drafts).

I'm frightened to re-submit the article because I have very little information. But these topics should be further reviewed , so-that experts who know more about these 2 topics, could contribute, and the future will be benefited.

G13 question[edit]

Could I draw your attention to Wikipedia:Administrators'_noticeboard/Incidents#Help_with_clearing_out_G13_nominations?

In addition to this editor, there are some other editors who "help" out by nominating G13s, and often do it wrong. If you are comfortable that the bot is keeping up with the backlog, I'd like to put together a nicely worded note for these editors to suggest that they should not nominate G13s, as that will be taken care of.

I have noticed some nominations by your bot, but most have been by human editors. One possibility is that the bot is not nominating many because of the throttling, and if human editors stopped, the bot would do them all. However, it occurred to me that if the creation of G13 eligible is exceeding the throttle limit, then maybe humans are nominating because they see the backlog growing. Is it proper for me to look at Category:G13 eligible AfC submissions and conclude that the backlog is quite reasonable, and therefore we should discourage human editors from nominating at all?--S Philbrick(Talk) 15:42, 26 June 2016 (UTC)
