Thank you for a useful aid.

Comment/question: Bot gave me link to wrong diff page, my errors was made on the next 2 edits (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=683759413 & https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ishmael&diff=next&oldid=683759413) - not the one provided by the bot

Yaakovaryeh (talk) 07:52, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Right, thanks for notifying A930913 about this issue. If I had to guess, I'd say the bot likely got confused because in that first edit you had a "missing title" error which it would have notified you about; you went on to correct that, but introduced the "archive-url" errors instead in subsequent edits. So the error you were notified and the edit the bot remembered as "first problematic one" apparently no longer matched. Huon (talk) 18:55, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

The issue has been fixed already; one of the references you removed was re-used in another place, and that re-use was broken when you removed it. It has been re-added in the appropriate place. Huon (talk) 01:26, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Comment/question: there wa a pipe title in the title causing the error. please update ReferenceBot (if possible) to catch that.

TiMike (talk) 00:50, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

TiMike, to me it seems ReferenceBot already did catch that; after all, it notified you. The bot merely reproduces the warning already given on the page; to have it identify the issue more precisely than the template itself would be exceedingly difficult. Huon (talk) 11:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Comment/question: It's actually an apology. My comment alleges that you (the bot) "broke" the page. But now I see that you did nothing but notify me about errors of my own, which I have now fixed. So I thank you. And I hope that advances in AI have made it possible for you to understand what I am writing here. :-^)

Comment/question: Why is it using the arbitrary-URL syntax //en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=701495981 in the notice when the double-bracket Special:Diff/701495981 is shorter and doesn't make me stop to check if it's a safe link?

Comment/question: I don't know what the ReferenceBot is specifically referring to. I carried out a merge with this page and Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, SC Combined Statistical Area. So I did a lot of editing. The ReferenceBot says "URL error", but it did not specify the error. I don't know what to do.

Inkan1969 (talk) 16:46, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

When you check the references section in the diff the bot gave you, you will find a red URL error message in the fifth reference. I've tried to fix the link. Huon (talk) 11:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

222.127.108.7 (talk) 22:46, 26 January 2016 (UTC) sorry this is actually my fist using this site. all I did was it said the person name had an alias, all I did was try to see what her alias were, but I didn't change anything. I just read the names and that was it. sorry about that. I promise ill be more careful from now on. thamk u for letting me know.

This seems to be a shared IP address. The bot notified it about some bracket issues back in 2014; that likely was meant for someone else who used the IP address at that time. Huon (talk) 11:19, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Comment/question: this edit was about cleaning up the false usage of "#124;" --- I was quite surprised to see such an ancient remain.

SzMithrandirEred Luin 10:30, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

@SzMithrandir: And while doing that cleanup you added a {{reflist}} to the section you were improving. I do so myself to preview a section's references, but sometimes one forgets to remove this temporary aid. Now fixed. Thank you for cleaning up the references. Huon (talk) 11:51, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Comment/question:There is no inconsistency: the Bot said there were not enough references; the references have since been added. Case closed.

Justin Grant-Duff 18:12, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

@Jgrantduff: What the bot said was that there was a missing reference list. You used the {{efn}} template for one note; footnotes created by that template are not displayed by the standard {{reflist}} template but require a separate list, say {{notelist}}. Another editor fixed that. Huon (talk) 11:51, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Comment/question:


Vogliate cortesemente visitare la mia pagina "Biografia Italo Salizzato"... a mio parere ci sono alcuni errori positivi! Pertanto Vi chiedo, se è possibile, la Vostra preziosa collaborazione per superare il problema! Grazie e tanti auguri di cose belle. Ciao! --Ermo casella (talk) 07:24, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@Ermo casella: You copy-pasted the content of the Italian article on Italo Salizzato into the English article on the same subject. That is not helpful since the readers of the English Wikipedia generally cannot read Italian. Those who can read Italian can find the same content on the Italian Wikipedia and also are not helped by finding it at the English Wikipedia. Here articles (and comments on talk pages such as this one) should be written in English. For these reasons I have reverted those additions. If you can translate the Italian text to create an English biography of Italo Salizzato, you are welcome to do so. Huon (talk) 11:51, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

@Brucewh: The code seems correct to me as well, excepting the missing bracket you added yourself here. If you want to edit the source code for some reason, there's an "edit source" tab at the top of the page. Huon (talk) 08:58, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

That doesn't seem to be the formal tone expected of an encyclopedia, and it doesn't cite any reliable sources. Huon (talk) 17:10, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Manitoba is bigger than Alberta and Saskatchewan. You removed it for no reason — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.124.168.113 (talk) 21:01, 8 February 2016 (UTC)

Neither the bot nor A930913 removed that edit. That said, Statistics Canada disagrees with your assessment of those territories' sizes. Given the choice between a random person on the internet and the statistics office of the government of Canada, I think we'll go with the latter. Huon (talk) 17:10, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

@Proust1129: It seems you removed the content of the footnote from the article, but still tried to cite it by name. Another bot rescued the content. All should be fixed now. Huon (talk) 17:10, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
