Ring of periods[edit]

This edit is incorrect. Those pages are unrelated to Ring of periods. Bethnim (talk) 09:42, 13 May 2010 (UTC)


This is incorrect. Links to pages about a place, Alforja in Spain [1]. On English Wikipeida, Alforja redirects to Saddlebag. Alforja might mean "saddlebag" in Spanish, but the page Pannier should not link to the place in Spain --Dbratland (talk) 00:24, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Same error again. --Dbratland (talk) 16:07, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

Bot mistake[edit]

RibotBOT has attached wrong interwiki links for Pepe (1908–1931), a page about a footballer that shouldn't be linked with the generic name Pepe. --Jotamar (talk) 19:05, 1 September 2010 (UTC)

Wrong interwiki's[edit]

Any idea how we can stop bots mixing up interwiki's such as here ? --Foroa (talk) 07:23, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Advice needed indeed. Robots keep adding wrong interwikis to Reportage (album) too, and it's a mystery to me why, because this is not the generic Reportage article. Also, usually it's a different robot every time but RibotBOT has now made the same mistake twice in a week. [2] The Seventh Taylor (talk) 06:58, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
Loupeter, thanks for the reply you've given on my user talk page. I get it now. The Seventh Taylor (talk) 19:51, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

COPY - I'm sorry but there are different wikis with an article devoted to the Corinthia Prefecture pointing to Corinthia and while this situation remains mine or any other bot will add the same interwikis. To avoid the repetition of this mistake it will be necessari to correct all involved wikis. Best regards. --Loupeter (talk) 15:52, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
Corinthia Prefecture contains links to the other wikis, your bot simple can avoid adding interwiki links to articles in enWP if these links exist in enWP already. Otherwise your bot should be stopped immediately. This is severe misbehavior. GRprefectures-have-been-dissolved (talk) 02:52, 31 January 2011 (UTC) - The thing simply is, the bot inserts wrong stuff, and normal users cannot stop it.

Christiaan Huygens edit[edit]

This edit for the Christiaan Huygens article ended up creating a minor problem. There was already a link to the zh interwiki but it was missing a bracket. This was fixed but an extra link was added which shows up as regular text in the article. Jason Quinn (talk) 19:36, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

Incorrect link[edit]

This edit is incorrect.

Wrong District Interwiki[edit]

Hello. Your bot has undone the link on District to french wiki fr:District and replaced it with fr:Novads. District (fr) is the general word for the english word district and both articles are similar. Novads in french wiki refers to a local district in Latvia, even if in Latvian, novads also means probably district. Furthermore, there is no mention about latvian novads in the english article. Mwkm (talk) 11:16, 24 May 2012 (UTC)


Hello, I wish to ask you to exclude the page en:Rachis from the operations of your interwiki bot; this is because I have corrected the interwiki to the Italian version (and vice versa on, but your bot reverted them to the previous (and imprecise) version. I would like not to correct the interwikis on all the wiki versions to make sure the bots get them right... Thank you! --Gengis Gat (my talk) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gengis Gat (talkcontribs) 18:35, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

Credo Reference Update & Survey (your opinion requested)[edit]

Credo Reference, who generously donated 400 free Credo 250 research accounts to Wikipedia editors over the past two years, has offered to expand the program to include 100 additional reference resources. Credo wants Wikipedia editors to select which resources they want most. So, we put together a quick survey to do that:

It also asks some basic questions about what you like about the Credo program and what you might want to improve.

At this time only the initial 400 editors have accounts, but even if you do not have an account, you still might want to weigh in on which resources would be most valuable for the community (for example, through WikiProject Resource Exchange).

Also, if you have an account but no longer want to use it, please leave me a note so another editor can take your spot.

If you have any other questions or comments, drop by my talk page or email me at Cheers! Ocaasi t | c 17:23, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Wrong french interwiki[edit]


RibotBOT has attached wrong french interwiki link for Grand Army of the Republic, fr:Armée de la République is about Star Wars.

Unicode control characters[edit]

I think your bot here only added an invisible unicode control character after I removed it. -- Magioladitis (talk) 18:23, 8 November 2012 (UTC)


Hi. This adding is wrong. Both articles refers to a basketball player, not the artist. Thanks for fix it. --Ganímedes (talk) 12:56, 25 December 2012 (UTC)

Your bot on English Wikipedia[edit]

A proposal to de-authorize a group of idle interwiki bots on the English Wikipedia is currently in process. A bot account of yours has been included in the list. If you are no longer using this bot, no action is neccessary by you. Should you wish to revive your bot in the near future, please remove your bot from the list here: en:Wikipedia:Bot_owners'_noticeboard#Bot_that_are_inactive_for_the_last_2-4_years_and_may_lose_bot_flag.
