Archive for January 2012

Archiving too fast!

MiszaBot III is archiving my page too fast! I set it to archive my talk page every five days and it is archiving it every 24 hours! What do I do? A520 | Talk me away!/sign it! 14:00, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Every day, the bot will archive threads older than 5 days (not 'archive once every 5 days'). –xenotalk 15:13, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Oops. Forgot to write what happened here. I corrected his problem on Dec 23. With the parameter set as "aglo" instead of "algo", it was archiving back at the default of every 24 hours. It is working correctly now.

Request for automatic archiving

Hi Misza. Happy New Year. Thanks for everything you do (though I know you are a bot). I have come to request automatic archiving for User talk:My love is love after each 10 days. Jivesh1205 (Talk) 19:33, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Well, I'm not Misza13 but just one of the folks that try to help out here. Is there a thread where My love is love has requested archiving? I don't want to give them something they didn't want.
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► 20:43, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
Hmm no. Jivesh1205 (Talk) 08:08, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Ask them to come here and make the request and we will try to help.
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► 15:27, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I would like my talk page to be archived after each 10 days. Thanks. My love is love (talk) 12:09, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done

Talk page archiving help

Hi there, I tried to set up talk page archiving on my Commons talk page but it does not seem to be working. Does anyone have any ideas how I could fix it? Thanks smile It Is Me Here t / c 15:50, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

I should have this fixed now on both your talk page 1 as well as the template from where the error was originating. 2

Request for Interview Regarding Wikipedia Bots

Greetings Misza13-

My name is Randall Livingstone, and I am a graduate student at the University of Oregon, currently collecting data for my dissertation on Wikipedia editors who create and use bots and assisted editing tools, as well as editors involved in the initial and/or ongoing creation of bot policies on Wikipedia. As a member of the bot community and bot operator, I would very much like to interview you for the project at a time and in a method that is most convenient for you (Gchat, another IM client, Skype, email, telephone, etc.). I am completely flexible and can work with your schedule. The interview will take approximately 30-45 minutes.

My dissertation project has been approved both by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at the University of Oregon, and by the Research Committee at the Wikimedia Foundation. You can find more information on the project on my meta page.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you to set up a time to chat. Thank you very much.

Randall Livingstone, School of Journalism & Communication, University of Oregon

MiszaBot archival with date in subpage

Is there any way to use subpages in the format /2012-01-17 as in m:Standard archival system? Thanks, Nemo 01:33, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

You might try /%(year)d-%(month)d-%(day)d which is how the string would be formed but it may not work because day isn't listed as one of the string parameters. You can try it as an experiment.

MiszaBot archiving problems

I set up MiszaBot on my talk page, and the next day it seemed to have kept some of the threads and archived some others. How do I make it archive the sections in order? Thanks Gsingh (talk) 04:05, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

The three sections it skipped simply didn't have recognizable timestamps. The first had a very old format ("22:17, Jun 12, 2005 (UTC)") that the bot apparently didn't recognize, and the other two contained no timestamps at all. The bot can't archive a section without a recognizable timestamp to tell it when it's ready for archiving. You'll need to archive those sections by hand. Also, note that the bot does not necessarily archive in order; if an older thread is still generating discussion, a later thread that hasn't been commented on in a while may be archived first. jcgoble3 (talk)
Ok thanks for your help! Gsingh (talk) 04:27, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Not Archiving

Unfortunately, it would seem that Misza is not archiving my talk page, and i'm at a loss as to what the reason could be. I went through the FAQ section and I believe that I have followed the guidelines to a T. Please let me know what I have done wrong. Thank You. - Fumitol|talk|cont 05:26, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

I've adjusted them so they should work now.

Not archiving

MiszaBot III archived my talk page once, but that was all. As above, I've gone through the documentation over and over but may be missing something. Would you please take a look at my setup when you have a chance? Thanks in advance and all the best, Miniapolis (talk) 14:49, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

I've made some adjustments so hopefully it will continue to work. It last worked on January 19 and archived to your November archive so it appears to be working. I noticed that you changed horses while midstream moving from an archive system that uses Archive 1 to using a different pattern involving the monthnames and years. I don't know if that may cause a problem or not but it is worth noting while diagnosing problems. Let's see if it works within the next 24 hours.
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► 16:18, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
It seems to be working now; thanks very much for the hint about not reconfiguring midstream. I know from what I call "voodoo electronics" that troubleshooting is much easier when you change one thing at a time :-). All the best, Miniapolis (talk) 18:46, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
You're welcome. I'm glad that it worked.
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► 18:50, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Yes, I finally had a chance to check the diffs and saw what you did; I couldn't get my head around that "counter" parameter if you're not using "Archive 1", etc. and (sigh) I thought the archive pages were automatically created :-). Thanks again and all the best, Miniapolis (talk) 20:06, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

They are automatically created in the archive box with the numbered style archive pages. See Template:Archive box#Automatic links. You could always move the archive pages back to the numbered system and it would work. With the search function in the box, I have never found date listings to be particularly useful myself.

Not archiving

What's stopping the bot from archiving Talk:Death of Caylee Anthony? I don't see that anything has changed since the last time it ran, but....
—WWoods (talk) 02:09, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

I wonder if it has to do with that first discussion starting with a lower heading level then normal? But considering that as one discussion, we did not exceed the minthreadsleft = 4 point until today.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Vegaswikian (talkcontribs) 21:35, 24 January 2012‎ (UTC)
I've modified the section headers to see if that works. I believe Vegaswikian is right.
⋙–Berean–Hunter—► 04:06, 25 January 2012 (UTC)

Template talk:Weather box

Here's a new one for me: the bot archived a bunch of stuff, but failed to delete it from the talk page.
—WWoods (talk) 18:06, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

Not just that. It also failed to archive a good many threads that it should have. With minthreadsleft = 5, there are a good many that were left. Hmmm.
The last line of what was archived had <noinclude>{{reflist}}</noinclude> -- maybe that was a deal breaker.
It will be interesting to see if the bot works the next go round and it should create Archive 4. I checked for blacklisted links which it didn't have. We'll see tomorrow.
