A third way: Request SuggestBot via Teahouse[edit]

Re-posting this message from SB talk page and asking for a status update please.

Greetings, Since I started on WP, I visit Teahouse almost every day. While "exploring" I discovered that SuggestBot requests can be made at this Teahouse page. Click on Get suggestions and follow the instructions. IMO this third way is more user friendly versus the other two request methods. Here is my first draft for update to the start of this page (and the User page).

Start of draft

If you're looking for SuggestBot recommendations, you have these options.

  • For a one-time request to try it out, please go to User:SuggestBot/Requests.
  • At Teahouse, you can direct SuggestBot to choose article categories based on WikiProject(s) you are interested in. For a self-guided request, go to Teahouse SuggestBot Suggestions, click on Get suggestions and follow the instructions.
  • If you would like recommendations regularly sent to your talk page, add yourself to the list of SuggestBot Regulars.

I have only used SB a few times (and BTW this last time with the detail columns is Great!) so the above draft may need to be tweaked. Regards, JoeHebda (talk) 14:30, 9 July 2015 (UTC)

SuggestBot in the french wikipédia?[edit]

Hello Nettrom.

Great idea, the SuggestBot!

Do you think your bot could work on the french wikipedia?

I can help if needed.

Edit - sorry, I was so enthusiastic that I missed the SuggestBot talk page!
I have just been posting there.

I replied to you in the french Suggestbot talk page. Cheers. Trace (talk) 17:03, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Proposal: Shaded heading boxes? (for Opentask template)[edit]

Symbol question.svg Greetings Nettrom The proposal to add shaded heading boxes (at Wikipedia talk:Community portal/Opentask)was introduced on 16:35, 26 September 2015 (UTC).

Since that time, the example was updated several times. In addition, I posted at Wikipedia talk:Community portal on 23:51, 27 September 2015 (UTC). Still looking for feedback, discussion & consensus. My concern is the 5,000 page watchers at Community portal & the responses triggered if I am bold and make this change. Please advise of how to proceed. JoeHebda (talk) 14:15, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

Replied on Wikipedia talk:Community portal/Opentask. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 16:22, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

plwiki step 2[edit]

OK, there's consensus, I set 9 categories (links here). This is the page to be updated. I separated them to provide 1. more transclusions without including the layout 2. flexibility: which lists [not] to transclude. As a consequence, eventually, your bot will be able to update several sets that could be used independently from one another. SuggestBot actually has a flag on pl, so this is also done. As for frequency, once per hour is fine. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 18:13, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi Tar Lócesilion, thanks for getting all the "paperwork" taken care of, wonderful for me to see everything ready to go! I'll be working on this today and should have an update for you in a few hours. Regards, Nettrom (talk) 16:50, 6 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi again Tar Lócesilion! I've been able to patch SuggestBot's script so that it apparently works, ref pl:Wikipedysta:Nettrom/sandbox/suggestions and this diff.
One issue that you might be able to help me with is how to handle pl:Kategoria:Artykuły wymagające uzupełnienia źródeł. Right now I use an adaptation of how we handle some categories here on enwiki. The script grabs all pages (Main & Talk namespaces) from sub-sub-categories because articles are moved into monthly categories. That means it also grabs articles from subcategories of pl:Kategoria:Hasła chemiczne wymagające uzupełnienia źródeł w infoboksie, and there are a couple of categories that get ignored (e.g. pl:Kategoria:Wyniki piłki nożnej wymagające uzupełnienia źródeł). Let me know if that works okay or not.
Also, the code now uses an English edit comment ("Updating list of open tasks..."). If you have a Polish translation the bot can use that. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 01:42, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Great, thanks! I made linkfixes here and there, and everything works, for now. I'll be keeping an eye on sub-categories that contain articles instead of sub-sub-cats. Keep in touch :) Tar Lócesilion (queta) 03:46, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
OK, finally, I think SuggestBot can update the suggestions once per hour. pl:Wikipedia:Sprzątanie Wikipedii/Sugerowane listy - this page is ready, as well as the draft of community portal. Tar Lócesilion (queta) 15:23, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
Hi again Tar Lócesilion, thanks for the help and the updates! Finished up getting things ready, and based on the edit history things are working. I've add the call to SuggestBot's crontab so the page should be updated once every hour. Will monitor it throughout the day and try to fix anything that comes up, and feel free to get in touch if you see something! Regards, Nettrom (talk) 18:39, 11 January 2016 (UTC)

strange question[edit]

Would there be any way for people to submit articles not yet created but desired to the suggestbot and have those suggestions sent out to people as a separate post on talk page? It would simplify the process instead of having to manually check all the way time. And it could update new suggestions in realtime so you would know there are new desired articles. Nice to meet another u Of m guy, i graduated from there in 2003 😊 Very fond memories. Notgoingtotellyou (talk) 21:07, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Snarky Puppy[edit]

The lead says further down;

"On January 26, 2014, Snarky Puppy, along with Lalah Hathaway, won a Grammy Award in the Best R&B Performance category for their rendition of the Brenda Russell song "Something" from Family Dinner - Volume 1."

I always think there's an element of peacocking in shoving "award winning", and the like, into leads. But many editors seem to think it needs to be done ASAP, either to capture the reader's fickle attention, or in case someone reaches for the delete button before reading any further! :) --Escape Orbit (Talk) 20:04, 20 March 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for commenting on my IEG proposal[edit]

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on my IEG proposal page. I'm a little embarrassed I didn't know about the projects you mentioned, Ekstrand & Riedl (2009) in particular as they addressed much of what I am proposing. At this point I'm not sure exactly where my project extends the work that you and others have already done other than trying to frame the problem in evolutionary terms. But I'll keep working at it and see if I can identify some key differences and highlight them in the proposal.

Evoapps (talk) 16:41, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Evoapps! I hope my feedback on your proposal came across as constructive, I think you're looking at an interesting problem and I hope that your evolutionary perspective can bring some new thoughts to this side of things. Ekstrand and Riedl's paper does a great job of examining the issue of visualizing the edit history in a meaningful way. As far as I know there is still an opportunity for making progress in this area, particularly when it comes to understanding more about how quality develops over time. I'll send you an email so we can stay in touch! Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 00:54, 10 April 2016 (UTC)

SuggestBot's messages[edit]

Hi, I have got to you a question about work of the SuggestBot. Does suggestbot generate articles also based on my watchlist? Regards. Dawid2009 (talk) 12:57, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

I've responded to this on User talk:SuggestBot#SuggestBot's messages. Replying here to so the archive bot can do its thing as time goes by. Cheers, Nettrom (talk) 18:41, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
