Hey Jtmorgan! Just want to say thanks so much for inviting me to the Teahouse, I have already asked a question. It looks like such a helpful page. Anyway if you have anything else you'd like me to see please do as I am quite new to Wikipedia accounts :) Really kind of you to invite me, hope you have a nice day! Iris x

Message from User:[edit]

I must have done something Very Very awful to you because I never thought I would be called names when I preview things as browser. Things like last edited by an annoying person to be nice. I am managing partner of a very generous Corp. with 211 employees most work from home. That said I have just been trying to learn how to do new things on computers on my own and as a Gen X guy it can be difficult. however, I taught myself a lot over a year and I figured I could try writing on Wikipedia and not bother anyone no matter how long I work at it. so yesterday Invite to take an adventure while learning but I didn't understand the idea or what was happening. I waisted so much time doing as told went to the tea shop everything but it ran me in circles. I was so mad I had our legal counsel here at six am along with local employees to see what would happen well the names came faster. so I sent someone there the name and phone number of our law firm. then my history was changed or deleted friends saw different things with my name on it and in the same house the screens are different. I hope it's a freak thing because I don't feel good after presenting four attorneys to young smart people that I thought you were. all done maybe venting will help.

Teahouse archival: coming up...[edit]


If you remember the archival notification bot thing, I have a good chunk of code already done, as well as the template that the bot should substitute.

If you have time to review the code / make any comments, I would welcome it. The most simple test case is python3 > test.log which creates a list of entries user talk page -> text to add via the template (pull the repo, move to /scripts, run the command, check out the warnings in command line and inspect test.log). From what I could see, there are a few false negatives No matches for the creation of the following thread: which I believe are caused by a size limitation of how much history the API accesses in one go.

I still haven't made heads or tails of pywikibot's means to authenticate and post to pages, so I haven't coded the notification process itself (but it should be fairly quick once I understand what is going on). Once that is done, I think the bot request is good to go.

Also, I have trouble to access block info for IP editors via the API, if you know how it is done I am all ears.

All the best, TigraanClick here to contact me 20:55, 18 June 2017 (UTC)

Hi Tigraan! I replied on the MediaWiki thread with a solution to getting block status for IP users that should work. In terms of authentication, I know of two ways to do it. The first is to just make a POST request to the API with your normal user credentials. There's an example of that here (see the login_request, token_request, and publish functions). That should work for testing the scripts. For running HostBot, I use OAuth directly, via requests-oauthlib, rather than going through PyWikiBot (I can never make heads or tails of PWB either). You can see my implementation here, if that's helpful. The documentation for setting up your bot to use OAuth is a bit confusing. I don't remember the details of how I did it, or exactly why it's necessary/preferred, but it's worth looking into once you've got the bot tested and ready to go.
I took a quick look at you code and watched the repo. I probably won't have time to test it directly, but if there are any pieces you'd like another set of eyes on let me know. J-Mo 21:03, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
