While I typically don't do this, I'd like to request a "speedy trial" as I would like to test this on Hurricane Sandy. Since it's near landfall, it will get updates every 2 hours, giving me enough data to make sure it's fully compatible with everything. For the purpose of the trial, I would be manually starting the bot and debugging it so any errors would get quickly reverted and fixed. Thanks, Legoktm (talk) 19:24, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Approved for trial (Sandy). — HELLKNOWZ ▎TALK 19:33, 29 October 2012 (UTC)
Yes/No. I was running it on my local machine so I forgot to set it to use the bot's account, so it editedtwice under my account. I tried switching it over to labs, however that was giving me a different output when using BeautifulSoup, so I'm still looking into that. I also want to clean up the way the /Current hurricanes control page works so it's a bit more flexible. Legoktm (talk) 19:11, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
While I think we need to look into this and see quite what happened, a month later nothing has changed on the BRfA, so might I suggest an extended trial until any large hurricanes come up, as Sandy is well and truly over now. Is this task going to go anywhere? Rcsprinter(talk to me) @ 00:17, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I've been busy with other things. Given that the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season is over, and 2013 isn't bound to start for a while, I'll poke Anonymouse to see if we can still trial it on a few other storms, otherwise I'll withdraw this until next June.

Withdrawn by operator. I'll put this "on hold" until May/June-ish when storms start again. Thanks, Legoktm (talk) 05:00, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
