Task number 29[edit]

I'm a little confused about Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/Hazard-Bot 29. Has it run on the entire Category:Relisted AfD debates? There's a lot of old logs from 2015 in there and it seems like pages as well. Thanks! -- Ricky81682 (talk) 09:26, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

@Ricky81682: Sorry for the delay. My bot doesn't edit the log pages (simply because they aren't AfDs, and hence, don't get relisted for deletion). I've just looked through Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Log/2015 January 20, and it seems the culprit is Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/BOLDfest. Looking around, I couldn't find anything on the page that would prevent it being edited, so I then looked at the category itself, and that's where the problem lay: the AfD was not listed in the category! I did a quick null edit on the page, and that solved the problem of it not showing up in the logs. Following that, I did a similar check on another log page, found the culprit AfD, and did another null edit, which also solved that. I think what I may need to is make a null edit to all AfDs transcluded in the logs within that category, so that the category list will be updated correctly (after which, the bot should be able to identify those AfDs as being relisted) and remove the category (hence removing the log's listing). Recent listings do not include the log pages (the category is now surrounded by <noinclude>...</noinclude>). Hopefully the cases I locate are the only ones, and that no future cases develop (they would be undetectable). Thanks for pointing this out, though!  Hazard SJ  00:38, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
Makes sense. I think the category was probably added so the ones directly transulating it need to be null edited in full. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 01:04, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
@Ricky81682: The null edits are now in progress, so if all goes well, the logs should be wiped from the category the next time the main script runs.  Hazard SJ  06:08, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

Research help additions![edit]

Hey Hazard-Sj! Thanks for the patience on Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval/Hazard-Bot_33. Looks like we are a go! Remember, the staging for the articles: Wikipedia:Research_help/Proposal#Project_steps. I updated it to reflect the 10,000 article cap.

Since we are only doing 5,000 for each WikiProject, can you start at the A's so that we skip over the numbered pages? The numbered pages tend to be either current events (starting with the year of the article) or one of a similar type (for example, in military history there are a lot of numbered military units or medicine I imagine a lot of chemicals). Skipping to A's allows us to get a broader swath of the types of articles.

Also, if you could add one more element to the edit summary: a hashtag, so we can track the edits adding the template using This should help with transparency of the number of edits for the bot action. I would suggest: #ResHelp.Astinson (WMF) (talk) 16:55, 1 February 2016 (UTC)
