Unnecessary edits[edit]

Hi Magioladitis, the problem of Yobot making unnecessary edits to articles I'm editing has started again. Examples (adding nothing but white space): [1][2][3] Can you say what the issue is? Sarah (talk) 16:00, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Sarah thanks for the heads up. Would you mind using {{pb}} instead of p tag? -- Magioladitis (talk) 16:20, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
I'll take a look at that template, but those edits aren't related to that. What I've noticed is that, when I start editing an article, you arrive at it, if only to add white space. I'd appreciate it if that would stop. Sarah (talk) 16:45, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Sarah the bot tries to fix the paragraph tag and it fails. there is a pending mediawiki bug and I recall that we discussed it together before. I did not touch the tag because I wanted to ask you first. If you replace the p tag with the template the bot won't revisit the page. -- Magioladitis (talk) 17:11, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
You're doing it to articles that don't contain that tag, e.g. Carnism [4] Sarah (talk) 17:14, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Checking... -- Magioladitis (talk) 17:18, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Hi Magioladitis, can you let me know what you found, please? Sarah (talk) 17:34, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Sarah I do not know why the bot visited the page because the log files have been overwritten by newer when I checked. The bot has not visited any of the pages you mentioned for a week which means the error did not reappear. If you see something else please notify me at my talk page and I will be happy to help. -- Magioladitis (talk) 22:46, 9 August 2015 (UTC)


Hi Yobot,

I don't think that most of this edit was an improvement. Specifically, I wouldn't put a space before °C. I am guessing there is some rule somewhere that says "insert a non-breaking space if a number is followed by a unit." I think any unit that starts with the ° symbol (including ° on its own) should be excepted from this rule.

Yaris678 I am afraid that the rule includes them. Check WP:UNITS -- Magioladitis (talk) 13:42, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
OMG. The table at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Dates and numbers#Specific units has 40° if its an angle and 40 ° if it's a temperature. That's just silly. I notice in the archives there many conversations on this already, including at Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (dates and numbers)/Archive 12 and Wikipedia talk:Manual of Style (dates and numbers)/Archive 25#temperatures, spaces before or after degree symbol. None of the discussions are very thorough... but its probably not worth bringing up again. About the most convincing argument for it is that this is what ISO 31-0 says. But then ISO 31-0 also says units should be italicised, which we explicitly don't do. So there is some scope for us to differ where we think something else would be better... but I'm not going to go rehashing that argument.
Thanks for pointing me to the relevant bit of the MoS.

Skylake_(microarchitecture) edits[edit]

Yobot added a poorly formatted and very small table for additional CPUs. Did not use the existing table or try to find other information.

Why not let someone else post a released product list if so few details will be posted?

Hyperduc Yobot did no such thing. You have confused it for another person. Yobot is a bot and cannot add tables. Also, please sign your posts and new posts go at the bottome of the page... just click the "new section" button at the top of the page next time. Bgwhite (talk) 21:31, 12 August 2015 (UTC)


Hello Yobot, I had seach any categories, but I hadn't found other than "theater", if you have the time, can you help me please? Thks. Wikiraguse — Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikiraguse (talkcontribs) 09:06, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

@Wikiraguse: Yobot is a bot and therefore does not categorize articles. I have added some categories to Jean Lambert-wild and done some copyediting for you. I've marked a section that still needs to be translated from French into English. Could you please help with that? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 13:34, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
