I don't mean to sound needy, but is it still customary to award barnstars to winners of the Disambiguation Challenge? It doesn't appear that anyone has received one since last September. Nick Number (talk) 15:39, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

So I guess that's a no. Nick Number (talk) 14:59, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
Thank you, Klbrain, for resuming the award. This does actually help me with motivation. Nick Number (talk) 15:36, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
Cheers: you beat me to the top in March, so I know how much work it took! Klbrain (talk) 15:52, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

False positives[edit]

I'm sure some of you have already noticed a number of false positives (that is, links that have already been fixed) appearing on the various disambiguation link lists on This appears to be due to corruption of the Tools Lab database replica. I reported this a couple of days ago, but so far none of the system admins seem to think it is important enough to do anything about. If you want to monitor the bug report, it is at --R'n'B (call me Russ) 14:11, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Second this. Poor Sacramento perch is being unjustly maligned on a daily basis by DPL bot for 7+ dablinks, whereas there are none, as far as I can see. Maybe the bot is reacting to piped links that read as if they were dablinks? (e.g., Clear Lake) -- Elmidae (talk · contribs) 09:50, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

Proposal to reduce workload[edit]

I've made a proposal at Village Pump that could reduce the workload here; please check it out and comment if you can. —swpbT 18:16, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Bonus list[edit]

@JaGa: The bonus list appears to be down. Nick Number (talk) 14:34, 23 July 2016 (UTC)

@Nick Number: Dplbot is behaving erratically, and JaGa hasn't been around for a month. See [1]. — Gorthian (talk) 16:59, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
