Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard

This is a message board for coordinating and discussing bot-related issues on Wikipedia (also including other programs interacting with the MediaWiki software). Although its target audience is bot owners, any user is welcome to leave a message or join the discussion here. This is not the place for requests for bot approvals or requesting that tasks be done by a bot. It is also not the place for general questions about the MediaWiki software (such as the use of templates, etc.), which have generally a best chance of being answered at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical).

Your Input on Archive Bot Behavior[edit]

Hi there,

What do you think about this edit (and the corresponding edit to the article's talk page). I find access dates by finding the earliest occurrenceof the url in the article. Is that a good idea? What are the standards for bots that add archives? --Tim1357 talk|poke 02:45, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

Conflicting edits between Hazard-Bot and Cyberbot I[edit]

As of this edit, It looks like that the two bots have different "opinions" on what a blank template sandbox should look like.

To me, one of the bots should either stop patrolling the template sandbox, or stop doing the task completely if the bot task only patrol that page. NasssaNser (talk/edits) 04:07, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
