Edits by user is broken with no instructions on who to contact[edit]

Hi Σ , I was sent here from Wikipedia:Help_desk#Edits_by_user when I asked about this broken tool. Am I at the right address, and if so can this problem be fixed? It’s a tool that many editors rely on but which breaks regularly without providing contact information. Is there anything that cn be done about this? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 01:31, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, but not at the moment. The people who run Labs enjoy making changes that break things, telling the users to restructure their (recently) "unsupported" projects, and doing it all over again the next time things break. If it wasn't for the free domain and database access, service would be much more reliable. Σσς(Sigma) 07:38, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
So where do I go to to voice my concerns? Thanks in advance, Ottawahitech (talk) 09:21, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
If I ever find out, I'll let you know. Σσς(Sigma) 06:17, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Revision History Page Top Contributors[edit]

Hey Σ, if I wanted to nominate an article, for which I'm not a significant contributor, for GA or FA assessment, I'll need to first contact the top contributors of the article. But the current list of Top Contributors are ordered by number of edits, which makes it a little hard to distinguish top copyeditors from top content-contributors. Is it possible to make reordering of the list with respect to any of the columns a feature? Thanks. EyeTruth (talk) 02:13, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes. I'll get to it. Σσς(Sigma) 08:17, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
It is done. Σσς(Sigma) 06:25, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Can you do Python?[edit]

Please see User talk:cyberpower678#Tools. --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:34, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Yes he can and I believe Sigma is the perfect person to do it too.—cyberpowerChat:Offline 04:17, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
I'll investigate tomorrow. Σσς(Sigma) 08:17, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Alright. I have the source of all his old tools. I'll see what I can do with it. Σσς(Sigma) 20:55, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

Please update your user category[edit]

Category:Wikipedians with Toolserver accounts redirects to Category:Wikipedians who had Toolserver accounts. Please can you update your user page. Thank you! Timrollpickering (talk) 10:56, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Archiving {unsigned} comments[edit]

Hi Sigma, I keep forgetting to ask, but is lowercase sigmabot III's inability to archive {{unsigned}} comments a known issue? I keep finding old sections that weren't properly archived because it's got the <!--Template:unsigned--> at the end. Cheers, Primefac (talk) 15:05, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

It can archive {{unsigned}} comments perfectly fine, as long as people don't mess up the input. Copying and pasting the timestamp from the action=history page gives an invisible character that messes up the timestamp in such a way that the bot cannot read it. Σσς(Sigma) 05:32, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
That would do it. I generally copy the timestamp from the history. Will make sure not to do that in the future! Primefac (talk) 07:34, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Quick list needed[edit]

I need a list of all users who have patrolled at least 20 new pages using either the Curation Tool or Twinkle in the last 12 months. Scottywon would have known how to do this. Is it something you can extract for me? --Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 03:00, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Searching for people who patrolled with Twinkle would be unneccesarily difficult. It is possible to find the people who patrolled pages without curation in general, if you would like that, but there is no trivial way to check if they did it with Twinkle. Σσς(Sigma) 05:30, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

This is excellent. Thank you very much. Looking at the list is very interesting and there are some surprises. It's more than enough for me to be going on with for what I have in mind. Kudpung กุดผึ้ง (talk) 08:02, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Scottywong's tools[edit]

Hi Σ, I was sent your way by Kudpung to try to start work on Scottywong's tools. I've got an account on labs and am fluent in Python. :) Samuel Tarling (talk) 09:30, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Send me an email. Σσς(Sigma) 18:34, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done: Emailed :) samtar (talk) 18:43, 29 August 2015 (UTC)
