Helperbot

Your helpbot7 did [1] and removed a previous comment that was not related to its edit. Ian Cairns (talk) 21:06, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Hey, sorry about that. Looks like it was an unfortunate edit conflict that mediawiki did not inform it of. Thankfully, such conflicts appear to be very rare, but I'll keep an eye out. Will (aka Wimt) 21:24, 6 January 2010 (UTC)
No problems - thought you ought to know.. Ian Cairns (talk) 22:22, 6 January 2010 (UTC)


In this edit the HBC AIV helperbot7 removed an AIV report, and also removed another, unrelated one with it. It looks to me like the same kind of error as mentioned above. If this keeps happening perhaps something needs to be done about it. JamesBWatson (talk) 19:43, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi, sorry about that. As said above, it does occasionally happen with all the helperbots unfortunately, but thankfully it is rare (given how many tens of thousands of edits the helperbots make, an edit conflict every three and a bit weeks is probably not too bad). Will (aka Wimt) 21:08, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
Incidentally though, the code to all the helperbots can be found here so feel free to suggest any improvements. Since they are making so many edits on a small number of very busy pages though, unfortunately an occasional edit conflict is probably unavoidable. Just undoing the bot's edit should fix things though. Will (aka Wimt) 21:19, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
A similar incident occurred with this edit to UAA. Tckma (talk) 20:51, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
Just happened to me as well here. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 15:16, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Still happening ([2]). I agree the overall cost/benefit is well and truly in the positive, though. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 16:21, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

This diff is another example of the bug mentioned above. Tckma (talk) 13:37, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Is this the place to report false positives? If so, here's a diff showing one. :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 00:15, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Not to pile on, but here is another example of an edit conflict removing an extra AIV report.--v/r - TP 19:54, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

AIV Backlog

Think it would make sense to remove the line about removing the backlog from {{adminbacklog}} in its current implementation at AIV? Given that the whole process is automated, it seems extraneous. m.o.p 06:04, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
