Thanks a million. :)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  1. Why does SineBot keep signing stuff I've already signed?
    All comments should have a signature that includes both a link to your user page (slakr) and a datestamp (05:12, 20 August 2007 (UTC)) (per signatures - internal links). This is most easily generated by placing four tildes (~~~~) at the end of your contributions, which makes something like "slakr 05:12, 20 August 2007 (UTC)". If you're still having problems after trying that, post a message to slakr.
  2. I do sign using ~~~~, but the result includes my username as plain text, not as a link.
    You have probably changed the format of your signature. Go to "my preferences", then the "User profile" tab, and check the "Signature" field and the "Treat the above as wiki markup" checkbox. If "Treat the above as wiki markup" is checked, then the "Signature" field should contain wikicode, including something like [[User:Your Username|Your Username]]. If "Treat the above as wiki markup" is unchecked, then the "Signature" field should not contain wikicode.
  3. I don't want my comments signed by SineBot. How do I get it to ignore me or my talk page?
    Please use one of the opt-out methods listed on its user page.
  4. SineBot forgot to sign something it should have signed.
    Usually this happens because the bot isn't sure if it really should sign something, so it defaults to not signing it (e.g., in cases of complex edits). It does this to avoid being annoying. Other times, a comment might be made when the bot is down for maintenance, so the bot simply never sees it.
  5. SineBot signed something that it genuinely should not have signed.
    Please let slakr know-- especially if you think it's not a one-time thing.

Hi, SineBot :p — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:86:400:1D54:85C7:5D8D:D5CC:6762 (talk) 22:35, 29 September 2018 (UTC)

Hi SineBot , Can you help me create an article? Hamry875 (talk) 06:30, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

@Hamry875: This is a bot's talk page. It cannot respond to you. You have already gotten an answer for your question on the Help Desk. (talk) 21:43, 2 December 2018 (UTC)

SineBot might be doing more harm than good[edit]

SineBot is too quick to sign comments which are clearly vandalism. In this example, SineBot waited less than one minute to sign vandalism. It is much harder for recent changes patrollers to revert vandalism when SineBot has made the last change.– Gilliam (talk) 18:12, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

SineBot signed each one of this serial vandal's posts.[1] Why can't SineBot revert instead of seal in vandalism.– Gilliam (talk) 17:01, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
Had this at WP:ANI today. It's a pain in the arse when it gets in the way of rollback. Can't the bot just wait 30 seconds? As it was, I had to select a revision and use the slow "restore this revision process", which risks the IP hopping and the revert failing, hence making the vandalism persist for even longer. A time delay would be great. Bellezzasolo Discuss 15:41, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

A barnstar for you![edit]

@Slakr: [2] and [3] SineBot not worked here. Siddiqsazzad001 <Talk/> 17:18, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

In case it takes Slakr a while to get back to you, by default SineBot doesn't sign for experienced editors, see User:SineBot#Opting back in for experienced editors. --David Biddulph (talk) 17:31, 24 January 2019 (UTC)
