Leave a message and he will respond whenever he gets a chance— that is, assuming he gets a chance. Cheers =)

Spam blacklist log[edit]

Slakr, do you think Procseebot could check hits on the spam-blacklist log ( and check IPs that hit more than XX times in the last YY edits (5 in 100 or so)? The log becomes quite useless because of IPs continuously hitting the blacklist filter (see - 0 edits, between 2500 and 3000 hits on the blacklist). I blocked the editor today .. guess that tomorrow it is another IP. --Dirk Beetstra T C 13:57, 11 August 2016 (UTC) for a nice example. I am now also seeing whether I can remove them through Special:AbuseFilter/791. --Dirk Beetstra T C 05:11, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
It appears that the AbuseFilter is tested after the blacklist .. no log entries there. --Dirk Beetstra T C 10:34, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Balkan topics[edit]

Crovata still continues to vandalize articles on Balkans topics and edit warring on them. -- (talk) 16:23, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

See Talk:Kanasubigi#Etymology, and that's the 4th revert by the IP, after 5 reverts by IP The edit summary, editing style, and information they push is the same as those of the socks by User:PavelStaykov who edited related articles. These days several articles had the same activity because of no protection, or if had a user account was made, for example see User talk:500ГОДИНИСТИГАТ.--Crovata (talk) 18:10, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
Now showed up third IP, by which edit summary is it obvious to be related or following the recent activity by other IPs on related articles.--Crovata (talk) 10:11, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Sinebot signed in an article[edit]

I've never seen this before. The bot made edits three times in an article. Probably something goofy in the article or GIGO issue, but just in case. Bgwhite (talk) 06:59, 19 August 2016 (UTC)

@Bgwhite: it was a talk page at the time --slakrtalk / 23:43, 19 August 2016 (UTC)
That would explain it. In all the years I've been here, I still sometimes forget to sign. Thank you for your bot and correcting my brain farts. Bgwhite (talk) 04:18, 20 August 2016 (UTC)


I suggest adding {{uw-sign}} when automaticly signing so people know that they should sign in the first place. Ⓩⓟⓟⓘⓧ (talk) 20:51, 23 August 2016 (UTC)

@Zppix: It uses {{Tilde}} (so basically, same thing). See also User:SineBot#What_SineBot_does. --slakrtalk / 01:51, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
