Your bot has removed the FLF logo from the Luxembourg national football team results pages. I'm just curious why it was removed here and not from Luxembourg Football Federation? Surely if something's copyrighted, it should be removed everywhere, no? --Philk84 (talk) 07:17, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Use on Luxembourg national football team results (2000–19) violated WP:NFCC#10c and WP:NFCC#8. The bot removed it for violating the former. — JJMC89 03:51, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

Help with Template repair[edit]

Hi JJMC89, I wonder if you can help? I noticed the template at Template:UK National Archives ID, is not working. It prepending an https:// and the UK National Archives wont accept it. Thanks. scope_creep (talk) 08:07, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

@Scope creep: I don't see a problem with the template. It has always used https, and the example on the documentation works for me. Would you point me to an example that doesn't work? — JJMC89 03:51, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@JJMC89: I used this, "Archival material relating to Hendrik MIERSEMANN". UK National Archives. Retrieved 11 September 2018.  for the page, [1]. I tried various ids. I assumed it was the page ref at the end of the url. But there is also document ref. When I used that ref, it comes up with Sorry, we can’t find the page you are looking for. scope_creep (talk) 09:35, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@Scope creep: The template uses, but your URL has an r. — JJMC89 14:18, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
I noticed that. The site has undergone a redesign recently, with the document reference number and index undergoing a complete rework. It needs a conversation with the archive and the template reworked. I don't know the template that well. I'm not that keen to break it. The /c url seems to have dissapeared as a global lookup with url resources for individual lookups., after sampling several pages. It now looks likes there is a separate block for each specific document set, with a separate url for that document block. Here is the Dairy Industry Federation at /details/a/A13532763 scope_creep (talk) 15:32, 11 September 2018 (UTC)
@Scope creep: I don't know anything about the site. If you are able to figure out how things have changed or are structured now, I might be able to redesign the template. — JJMC89 04:40, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
Coolio,got a plan. I'll contact them, and get back to you, as soon as I get a reply. I was at a wake yesterday, hence dodgy text. scope_creep (talk) 07:22, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Question on citations[edit]

Hello, regarding the page submission for Kentik I was hoping to get more clarification on why you didn’t feel like the citations were good enough to support the content re: [2][3][4] Many thanks for the additional context!Mkincaid2007 (talk) 23:29, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

Bot editing rate[edit]

Follow me to join the secret cabal!


Hi! Just a quick note on the editing rate for the recent Tyw7 signature fixes. The bot policy asks that a rate of six edits per minute be used for non-urgent edits; I think fixing a user's AfD stats page counts as non-urgent. The actual rate was approximately 30 edits per minute. This produces some watchlist clutter, so you may want to use lower edit rates in the future. Thanks! Enterprisey (talk!) 04:32, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

Indeed with the WL clutter. I'm also not sure as to why this was at all necessary. CHRISSYMAD ❯❯❯¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 13:31, 12 September 2018 (UTC)
It was to work around a limitation of Enterprisey's AfD stats tool. I'll endeavor to press save slower in the future. — JJMC89 02:57, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Phabricator request[edit]

I would like to know why the request T184000 in phabricator was considered as closed even though it was not resolved yet(it was created by me yesterday related to the magic word SHORTDESC).Adithyak1997 (talk) 03:11, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

You opened T204136, not T184000. — JJMC89 05:21, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Pushing a backlog to you[edit]

You’ll see there’s a post at AN about histmerges that are in my view unneeded. (tl;dr: someone draftified them, then the original author recreated in mainspace, then someone who doesn’t know about copyright asked for a hist merge.) You tend to be the best at fixing these sort of things, so you may want to take a look at them. I’m on mobile and off for the night, but saw you were on, so thought I’d volunteer you to figure out which ones aren’t needed Face-wink.svg. Also, RfA at some point so you can do the ones that are needed. TonyBallioni (talk) 02:02, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

@TonyBallioni: The backlog is back under control. I declined most of them. — JJMC89 02:53, 16 September 2018 (UTC)

Default values in Old AfD multi template[edit]

Howdy. I recently changed the default value in the Old AfD multi template, as presented at Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion#Procedure_for_non-administrator_close_(nominator_withdrawal), from "PAGENAME" to "{{pagename}}, based on that the former plain does not work while the latter does - based on my tests. (Actually, the same is true for the date parameter). This seems to have been swept up in your round of code edits. - So, am I the only one not getting output from the purported default value? (see e.g. here [5]) --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 08:06, 20 September 2018 (UTC)

You should use the actual page name and date, not PAGE_NAME and DATE, which are placeholders. You shouldn't use {{PAGENAME}} since the discussion link would break if the article is moved in the future. — JJMC89 05:39, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
Alright. If that is meant to be a placeholder, then I'd suggest presenting it in camel case, as is done for other placeholder values on this page - "PAGE_NAME" looks very much like an actual variable value. --Elmidae (talk · contribs) 07:29, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
 Done — JJMC89 05:28, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Two Queries that may be of interest...[edit]

Your assistance in reducing these backlogs appreciated.

Most of these can probaably be resolved relatively quickly, by upgrading them to use {{information}} blocks.

Thanks in advance ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:28, 22 September 2018 (UTC)
