Request: increase the upper limit[edit]

I find this service valuable to the point that I've just now added it to {{Infobox WikiProject}}. Having said that, would you consider increasing the upper limit to 10,000 to support the giant projects like Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography (nearly 1.3 million articles) and Wikipedia:WikiProject United States (400,000 articles)? Thank you in advance. -- DanielPenfield (talk) 19:11, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

It uses templates for the table cells with the assessment/importance data. If there's more than 1000 or so, it starts to hit the MediaWiki template limit. 10,000 probably wouldn't even save. Mr.Z-man 14:20, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
An easy way around that is to subst: {{Class}} and {{Importance}}. What do you reckon? Popular pages is such a useful service! -- DanielPenfield (talk) 00:30, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
I would like to withdraw my request as you or someone whose account shares the letter 'z' with yours already provides such a service under the unassuming name "View lists of the hitcount data" on ! Thank you for your consideration! -- DanielPenfield (talk) 19:15, 15 August 2015 (UTC)


I went to close Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Tha Carter V as redirect but the redirect was already in place. So the script completely blanked Lil Wayne and redirected it to itself! [1] Maybe have the script check if the redirect is already in place? Just letting you know! Thanks for the otherwise awesome script :) MusikAnimal talk 16:47, 24 July 2015 (UTC)


Hey, sorry to bug you again! Could you confirm Mr.Z-bot is still reporting filter hits to AIV? We had a few hits from Special:AbuseFilter/713 that are set to be reported immediately but I don't think they were. I checked the bots contribs and don't see any AIV edits for some time. Mind taking a look at it? Thank you!!! MusikAnimal talk 17:54, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

Looks like it is working. Please disregard, thanks! MusikAnimal talk 01:49, 26 July 2015 (UTC)

Invitation to subscribe to the edit filter mailing list[edit]

Hi, as a user in the edit filter manager user group we wanted to let you know about the new wikipedia-en-editfilters mailing list. As part of our recent efforts to improve the use of edit filters on the English Wikipedia it has been established as a venue for internal discussion by edit filter managers regarding private filters (those only viewable by administrators and edit filter managers) and also as a means by which non-admins can ask questions about hidden filters that wouldn't be appropriate to discuss on-wiki. As an edit filter manager we encourage you to subscribe; the more users we have in the mailing list the more useful it will be to the community. If you subscribe we will send a short email to you through Wikipedia to confirm your subscription, but let us know if you'd prefer another method of verification. I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite you to contribute to the proposed guideline for edit filter use at WP:Edit filter/Draft and the associated talk page. Thank you!

closeAFD.js - relisting Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/History of America?[edit]

I relisted Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/History of America? and when pressing Reload page was brought to Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/History of America. Could the question mark be triggering this? -- Sam Sailor Talk! 08:46, 30 September 2015 (UTC)
