Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

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 WP:VPT.

VoxelBot Vandalism DefCon score

Can anything be done to restore the automatic updating of the Defcon score and level, which VoxelBot until recently was doing every half-hour? Lots of counter-vandalism workers will be looking at out-of-date information on the many displays based on {{Vandalism information}} that are fed by this process: Noyster (talk), 16:11, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

New operator needed for VeblenBot and PeerReviewBot

CBM implemented and ran VeblenBot and PeerReviewBot, but is retiring from Wikipedia. I am in occasional email contact with CBM who wrote:

"It would be a good idea to find a different person to run the bot jobs. With the WMF Tools setup, I can actually just hand them the entire bot as a turnkey, they would not need to re-implement it. If you can find someone, please ask them to email me (and you email me) and I will be able to communicate with them that way."

If you are interested in taking over these bots please reply here. They are usually pretty trouble free. My email and CBM's email are both enabled.

I do the monthly PR bot maintenance (making the files and categories) and that includes adding the new PR category each month on the VeblenBot account - I would be glad to keep doing that (and give details on email).

Thanks, Ruhrfisch ><>°° 13:50, 5 April 2014 (UTC)

Logged-out archiving

Ever since late yesterday Wikipedia time, User: has been archiving discussions on assorted pages and labeling them as (BOT). I'm not sure, but I don't think bots should be doing work logged out, so I brought it here. I've got no idea which bot it is. Supernerd11 :D Firemind ^_^ Pokedex 03:27, 12 April 2014 (UTC) Sorry about being such a noob!
