Robot EditEdit

The edit on Colin Campbell Ferrie produced some strange results on an info box. Could you take a look? Thanks in advance! Stormbay 17:52, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Wow! That was a fast reply and action! Do you make housecalls?? :-) I will use your real talk another time. Stormbay

If (magazine)Edit

Hi -- your stub edit on If (magazine) seems wrong to me; can you take a look and let me know if it's accurate? If was essentially a science fiction magazine, and had nothing to do with art, though some of the magazine cover art has become moderately well known within the sf art field. Anyway, let me know what you think. Thanks. Mike Christie 18:47, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Also, Space Science Fiction has been re-stubbed; also looks wrong. Can you let me know whether this is an error or not? I'll post a note on the owner talk page too. Mike Christie 19:02, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
Also Uncanny Tales looks wrong, as above. Mike Christie 19:14, 7 August 2006 (UTC)


Hello, Please check the HUMO article. I wouldn't call Humo an art magazine. It has a section on music (about one third of the magazine). Another third goes to radio and tv program schedules, and one third is general journalism. --LucVerhelst 19:11, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks !--LucVerhelst 22:27, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

Bio stubsEdit

This bot made multiple incorrect re-stubbings based on a rather way-too-broad formula. David Donohue and Dorsey Schroeder should not be under NASCAR bio stub. Among many, many others. I suggest that you adjust the bot before running it again. FCYTravis 04:13, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

I've noticed some problems with what the bot has done in Category:Canadian politicians. It seems to have moved some non-Quebec politicians into Quebec. --Big_Iron 21:31, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Geography LessonsEdit

So this bot decided to annex Las Vegas into California. I made 25 reversions (and saw a few others already done) of the US-struct-stub --> California-struct-stub changes made between 16:39 & 17:01 on 19 August 2006. Better watch the geography based changes. -- Jagged 03:32, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Organic compound stubsEdit

I just wanted to say thanks for sorting many of the organic compound stubs into new sub categories and to let you know that I've reverted a bunch that have been miscategorized. --Ed (Edgar181) 13:16, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Cycloartenol has been miscategorized by this bot. I changed the stub category from organic-compound-stub to ester-stub. --Kupirijo 07:36, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
I started a discussion at Category_talk:Lipids. Thanks. --Kupirijo 15:55, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Inaccurate Stub Re-taggingEdit

Your bot inaccurately re-stubbed the Frederick C. Billard from the U.S. military bio-stub tag to the U.S. Navy bio-stub. In fact, Frederick C. Billard is a former U.S. Coast Guard Commandant. I have already reverted back to the previous edit. --TommyBoy 18:22, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

Inaccurate Stub Re-taggingEdit

Your bot inaccurately re-stubbed the Terrain Park from the snowsports stub tag to the racing stub. I have already reverted back to the previous edit. --Cmsjustin 17:41, 8 November 2006 (UTC)

Inaccurate Stub Re-tagging?Edit

Please see Talk:Muscular dystrophy#Sarcoglycanopathies. I suspect the 4th November edit to Sarcoglycanopathies is inaccurate. Thanks. Ben MacDui (Talk) 10:17, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Uncategorised tagsEdit

I'm coming across a lot of your {{Uncategorised}} tags, and I appreciate the work you're doing. However, if you check the template page, you'll see that generally they get added at the bottom of the article instead of the top. This allows the categorizer to do all work in the article in a single place (not having to go to the top and delete the tag and then to the bottom to add the categories). Is there any way you could change your bot code to place them at the bottom?
~ BigrTex 23:46, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

List of people by name: Schw is the second time i recall an UnCat Cat'n on an LoPbN-tree page. I don't know if this quirk is worth programming bots around, but each of these pages "inherits" a Cat from a template (actually, during the current transition, either a single specific template, or any of a class of about 170 of them that is recognizable by an RE) that is used with utter rigidity on each of them. This has the side effect that no Cat tag can be found in the tree page's markup. If you wanted to have yr bot recognize all calls to {{Lopbn p}} as obviating an explicit Cat tag, it would be no biggie for me to stop being so mañana about converting all the old ones to the new markups that use it instead of the old diverse Tls. (But in contrast, i think that converting to other than transcluded Cat tags would be a substantially bad idea, for reasons more persuasive than the effort of converting all 900+ existing pages.)
--Jerzyt 15:34, 29 January 2007 (UTC)


Hi, this tag a mixed blessing. It pointed out a deletion that I had missed on Plotter, but on Spencer John Derry it was added because {{linkless}} and {{sources}} were removed. In the later case, the article had not previously been in a meaningful category, and your box inappropriately tagged the article, and as a result I dug through the history unnecessarily. Ideally in this case, your bot would add {{uncategorised}} instead. If this cant be fixed easily, consider altering the wording of the {{previouslycategorised}} box to indicate that the cause may be that a tag was recently removed. John Vandenberg 00:25, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Stub removalEdit

When stubs are removed, their categories are also deleted. If this could be detected, a more specific tag could be added, or the old categories couuld be added back as an automated task.

False positivesEdit

Undo failedEdit

Telecommunications Systems Management was tagged because of deleted text; the addition of {{previouslycategorised}} prevented the Wikipedia undo functionality from working. John Vandenberg 02:11, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
undo on Tax code also failed. John Vandenberg 02:20, 10 December 2006 (UTC)


When the {{disambig}} is removed, the appropriate category is also removed. If this bot could detect that and add the disambig template (and not the previouslycategorised) that would help a lot. Errabee 02:44, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Which article did you notice this on? John Vandenberg 03:19, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Queen of Spades Errabee 05:50, 10 December 2006 (UTC)
Another similar case is Yang Wei. John Vandenberg 06:15, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

previously categorized?Edit

What is the meaning of the "previously categorized" tag? It seems to say "This article was previously in some category(s) but at some point they were removed", but (1) how often does that actually happen and (2) at least in the first instance that I checked, the article had never been attached to a category. I don't get why this tag is being used instead of just "uncategorized". Herostratus 16:54, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

What categories are available?Edit

All well and good asking for it to be categorised, but what sort of things can I categorise it in? King Edward VI Five Ways DJ Wright House Chess Trophy Alex Holowczak 19:21, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Cytochalasin EEdit

Thank you for your editing of the above.

I wish to attract your attention to the medical potential of Cytochalasin E. I would appreciate your help in categorizing it accordingly.

AbuAmir 16:58, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Placing of uncategorized tagEdit

Please don't place {{uncategorized}} tags where they cover some of an infobox or other data. If unclear if it can be placed at the bottom without suchproblems, please place at top. Eli Falk 12:36, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Please don't place {{uncategorized}} to a redirect either. jni 07:54, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

List of Alabama Metropolitan AreasEdit

I have added a "{{prod}}" template to the article List of Alabama Metropolitan Areas, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but I don't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and I've explained why in the deletion notice (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). Please either work to improve the article if the topic is worthy of inclusion in Wikipedia, or, if you disagree with the notice, discuss the issues at its talk page. Removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, but the article may still be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached, or if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria. AlaGuy 23:43, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Aquarius Festival categorisation.Edit

Yr robot has categorised the Aquarius festival as a "music festival", where it was previously categorised as a "festival". To limit it a music festival is incorrect. It was more than just a music festival, it was a lifestyle-festival. Music was only part of what it was about, and very little of that was mainstream. That simplified category belittles the event. I will try to find an appropriate category. Seasalt 23:46, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Have added cultural festival, but festival would be more appropriate than any of the sub-categories available. Why can it not remain "festival"? What was the point of the change? Seasalt 00:01, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Is it correct with two sub-cats of the one cat, or should there just be the one? (i added cultural festival) A counter cultural or alternative festival category could cover pagans, neopagans, and this? Seasalt 00:48, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Warning notification - Ruhrpottrider proposed for deletionEdit

AfD Nomination: RuhrpottriderEdit

I've nominated the article Ruhrpottrider for deletion under the Articles for deletion process. We appreciate your contributions, but in this particular case I do not feel that Ruhrpottrider satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion. I have explained why in the nomination space (see What Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Your opinions on the matter are welcome; please participate in the discussion by adding your comments at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Ruhrpottrider. Don't forget to add four tildes (~~~~) at the end of each of your comments to sign them. You are free to edit the content of Ruhrpottrider during the discussion, but please do not remove the "Articles for Deletion" template (the box at the top). Doing so will not end the discussion. - PocklingtonDan (on behalf of IP: 21:53, 24 January 2007 (UTC)


you've been putting user pages in the uncategorised section. please refrain from doing this.

-O keyes 12:13, 25 January 2007 (UTC)


The bot you use tagged these TV stations as Ohio TV stations when they are very much in West Virginia. I think your bot is not working properly. Reverts have been done on those pages, so no worries there. - SVRTVDude 03:51, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Regarding the "stubbing" featureEdit

Firstly, I love a good bot, going out there and performing tasks...With a little improvement, this might become as important as the famed AntiVandalBot. The "stubbing" feature (going out and finding unmarked stubs and marking them as stubs) is quite handy, but I, as a "stub-sorter" have a bit of difficulty keeping up with it... In the past hour, I have sorted over 150 people stubs out of the general stub category, almost all from your bot... I finish 50, and hit refresh, what do I see? 50 more! Can be a bit frustrating, but its just doing its job... Would be nice if it could sort the stubs though...--Vox Rationis 02:03, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

Don't tag disambiguation pages as stubsEdit

I notice that this bot has tagged some disambiguation pages as stubs. A short disambiguation page does not generally require expansion, so please don't tag any page with "disambiguation" in the page title as a stub. Thanks. --Metropolitan90 05:16, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

I second that but I'm not sure how your going to get the bot to work out it is a disambiguation page, but identifying phrases like could mean the would reduce them. One example was James carr (which I'm about to merge for incorrect capitalisation). Ksbrowntalk 10:13, 9 February 2007 (UTC) (Another good example os HRB whichh I have just corrected. Ksbrowntalk 10:22, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
I've removed five stub tags off disambiguation articles today, all of them were placed there by this bot. Something has to be done, it's clogging up [[Category:Stub]] with Disambiguation articles. Black-Velvet 12:23, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
It's tagged Hardon as a stub twice also. --DocumentN 03:04, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
I just destubbed the CIAM disambig page - perhaps the 'bot should at least look for a disambig tag like {{disambig}} or {{hndis}}, to detect when a stub tag is inappropriate. Dl2000 (talk) 01:14, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

This is a automated to all bot operatorsEdit

Please take a few moments and fill in the data for your bot on Wikipedia:Bots/Status Thank you Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 18:43, 12 February 2007 (UTC)


I'm just a newby overhere and I have created new pages as Richomeres, Theudemeres, and Genobaud. I think these pages are usefull. Could you please explain me why these pages are tagged with your bot? Please note that I have allready typecasted the articles with a link Franks and also provided usefull links to other pages. Answer please to johanthon 17:57, 13 February 2007 (UTC)


When the bot runs into a short page with no categories in its short page search, or a stub with no category other than a stub category in its uncategorized page search, it should put a {{uncategorizedstub}} on the page. Eli Falk 13:00, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Automated message to bot ownersEdit

As a result of discussion on the village pump and mailing list, bots are now allowed to edit up to 15 times per minute. The following is the new text regarding bot edit rates from Wikipedia:Bot Policy:

Until new bots are accepted they should wait 30-60 seconds between edits, so as to not clog the recent changes list and user watchlists. After being accepted and a bureaucrat has marked them as a bot, they can edit at a much faster pace. Bots doing non-urgent tasks should edit approximately once every ten seconds, while bots who would benefit from faster editing may edit approximately once every every four seconds.

Also, to eliminate the need to spam the bot talk pages, please add Wikipedia:Bot owners' noticeboard to your watchlist. Future messages which affect bot owners will be posted there. Thank you. --Mets501 23:58, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Tuscan paintersEdit

Hi there, this is a handy bot. One thought for you: If the pre-existing categorization includes Category: Italian painters as per Giovanni da Milano, there is a more specific stub to use than {{Italy-artist-stub}}. It's {{Italy-painter-stub}}. I figure if you're going to both doing stub sorting, might as well get the most accurate stub possible, right? Keep up the good work. Planetneutral 00:14, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Checking for vandalismEdit

I don't know if this has been asked before, but would it be possible for Alaibot to check whether an article has recently had its sub tag (and probably ctegories) remove recently, rather than just tagging them as stubs? I have come across several instances recently, where Alaibot has marked an article as a stub, where a revert of the last editor would also have solved the problem, and for less effort (e.g. stub after vandal; stub after vandal; stub after vandal). It would be a significant reduction of work for the stub-sorters if this sort of thing could be dealt with automatically. --Stemonitis 10:15, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

I would like to reiterate the same idea. Your bot tagged a vandalized page which was not reverted until today (nearly two months later). Subsequent editors did not even catch on to the issue (for whatever reason). At the very least place a note for editors to check if the previous edit was not vandalism. Preferably, following Stemonitis' advice wouldd be best. Thank you! --Stux 16:24, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

John Fry (regicide)Edit

I have moved the template:Uncategorized on the John Fry (regicide) page to the JF talk page. Please See Wikipedia talk:Template standardisation/article#Most maintenance templates should be placed on the talk page for the reason why. --Philip Baird Shearer 09:04, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Marking uncategorized stubsEdit

When you find an uncategorized stub, please mark it only with {{uncategorized}}. This would help prevent the constant backlog of CAT:STUB. Od Mishehu 04:23, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Subpages of List of InuYasha chaptersEdit

Please do not put "uncategorized" tags on the subpages of List of InuYasha chapters as you did with List of InuYasha chapters/Vol11to15. These subpages are attached to the main article which is categorized. They exist merely to be included into that article by template. Putting your tags on them will screw-up the main article.

Vâlcea County stubsEdit

For some reason you have replaced the stubs for some of the Rivers in Romania with the Vâlcea County stub. I don't think this is a very inspired move. The river articles are part of the Wikipedia River Project and the main category is the classification of rivers by country. As your change affects only some of the rivers, i.e. the rivers of Vâlcea County, the result is lacking homogeneity. All other river stubs have the indicator for Stub in Romania (or in other country) except for Vâlcea County. Putting the emphasis on a small county in Romania, which probably very few people in the English speaking community have even heard about makes it more difficult understand. It would be equally absurd to start naming stubs after Missoula County or even Transylvania county or Cowra Shire, which probably nobody in Romania have ever heard about. Please revert to the status quo ante. Afil 18:51, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Bistriţa County StubsEdit

I found the same problem with Bistriţa County. Please revert to previous situation. Recorrecting manually all these changes takes a very long time. The changes made are not acceptable. They should previously be discussed with the River Project team. Afil 22:37, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Braşov County StubsEdit

The same occurs to some rivers in Braşov County. Did you change everything? Please revert to previous situation. As I don't know what was changed, checking and recorrecting everything may take more than a week.Afil 22:47, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Covasna County StubsEdit

Some of your changes also affect stubs for Covasna County. These also should be reverted to their initial status. Afil 23:54, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

proposed deleteEdit

20-20-20-20 clubEdit

A {{prod}} template has been added to the article 20-20-20-20 club, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice explains why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may contest the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page. Also, please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. If you endorse deletion of the article, and you are the only person who has made substantial edits to the page, please tag it with {{db-author}}. User:Pedant 17:28, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

Tagging articles as {{stub}}Edit

Just so you know, when you were tagging uncategorized articles as stubs, at least one redirect was thus tagged, breaking the redirect. I don't know what can be done to avoid such things, but hopefully you do and can take steps to avoid it in the future. Thank you. —Salmar 03:13, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

I am sorry; I examined the redirect more closely and noticed that it was not correctly made, causing it not to be an actual redirect. Since I have not seen your bot tag any other redirects, I presume this was the reason. —Salmar 03:17, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

Tagging completely blank pagesEdit

Are you sure its wise for the bot to tag pages as uncategorised when they've been completely blanked? Cheers, Davidprior 19:41, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Wrong categorisationEdit

There's a little problem with the robot: it wrongly categorises uncategorised disambiguation pages as stubs in need of expansion (as it did in Ikimizi). Could this be solved? Regards. --Damifb 17:23, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

About the stubs (yet again, I realize)Edit

Being a stub sorter myself, it's very difficult to keep up with this bot, and the list of stubs is rapidly growing more and more unmanageable. Many people have already left this wikiproject because of the sheer unmanageability, and I feel that your bot is only making it worse. Would it be possible to either combine it with a form of stubsense, or just remove the stub feature for a while until we can get the backlog of [[Category: Stubs]] cleared up? -=- Xhin -=- 02:05, 6 October 2007 (UTC)

I'd agree that categorisation as stube doesn't always help. Some topic headings are always going to be stubs and no more. What is needed in these cases is sensitive redirection - through hyperlinks - to a range of other pages that are relevant. This is almmost as difficult a task as writing articles themselves.Davy p 02:29, 1 November 2007 (UTC)

Incorrect categorization of music singlesEdit

It has added the category Category:Albums without a by-year category to several pages about music singles that aren't considered as albums.[1] These articles have already been correctly tagged with Category:YEAR singles. ☆CharlesNguyễn 04:30, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

The articles are stubbed as "album-related", but are articles of singles since there is no "Japanese single stub". Thanks for notifying me of that though so I can six the stub templates on those articles. ☆CharlesNguyễn 22:23, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Nevermind, I found the correct stub template. Sorry about that. ☆CharlesNguyễn 22:46, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

EPs and by-year categoriesEdit

This seems wrong, as the article had Category:1998 EPs. --PEJL 16:39, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

I've actually fixed all current singles in Category:Albums without a by-year category which used album stubs, so just excluding Category:year albums and Category:year EPs should be enough.
My change to {{WPSS-cat}} made it only use talk colors on talk pages as opposed to always. I don't understand the problem, are you saying that it should use talk colors on non-talk pages? --PEJL 20:51, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Subpage taggingEdit

Hi, your bot just tagged Emergency medical responder levels by state/draft. That page is actually a future design that's being developed for the main page. Is there any way to either have a page opt out of your bot or have your bot not tag subpages?

Thanks, JPINFV (talk) 04:07, 7 May 2008 (UTC)


Please do not add the category {{stub}} to disambiguation pages. Use {{Disambig}} instead. Thanks! Woodshed (talk)`

Stub categoriesEdit

Why is the bot changing the {{protein-stub}} category of protein articles into {{gene-stub}}? This is really annoying! Regards, — Tirk·fl  “…”  09:44, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

As I said before, the bot is changing the stub-category of protein articles into those of gene articles, which is annoying to revert. — Tirk·fl  “…” 07:35, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
There are many gene/protein article stubs that I initially labeled protein stubs that have been re-categorized has gene stubs. There are two problems with this re-categorized. First, most of these articles have more detail about the structure and function of the protein than the gene. Second, several of the articles such as RAR-related orphan receptor contain information about a family of proteins, each encoded by a different gene, usually on different chromosomes. The bot stub catagorization assigns the genetics stub to one gene, whereas the protein family is resides on different genes. For these two reasons, I believe the original protein stub categorization is preferable to the gene categorization. Hence I would appreciate if your bot would stop this protein -> gene re-categorization. Cheers. Boghog2 (talk) 23:57, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Bot warning -- Plant hormone articleEdit

For some reason your bot deleted the reference section and some other things out of the Plant hormone article. Just thought I would let you know.

surname, not stubEdit

Hallo, Renyi had a {{surname}} tag - shouldn't this have stopped the bot from adding a {{stub}} tag? PamD (talk) 11:31, 11 June 2008 (UTC)


I need help renaming about 200 articles. Doing this by hand would take me all day.

Can your bot rename articles, or be adapted to do so?

If so, please contact me.

Thank you.

Proposed deletion of Edge STPEdit

A proposed deletion template has been added to the article Edge STP, suggesting that it be deleted according to the proposed deletion process. All contributions are appreciated, but this article may not satisfy Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and the deletion notice should explain why (see also "What Wikipedia is not" and Wikipedia's deletion policy). You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{dated prod}} notice, but please explain why you disagree with the proposed deletion in your edit summary or on its talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised because even though removing the deletion notice will prevent deletion through the proposed deletion process, the article may still be deleted if it matches any of the speedy deletion criteria or it can be sent to Articles for Deletion, where it may be deleted if consensus to delete is reached. Do you want to opt out of receiving this notice? Dgtsyb (talk) 06:34, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

First Harrogate TrainsEdit

Look, instead of tagging the page with "un-categorised", why not actually HELP and add some categories - it took me two minutes to add several and remove that unnecessary and pathetic notice!

Please take this advice. Regards Btline (talk) 16:31, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Inaccurate Stub Re-taggingEdit

Your bot inaccurately re-stubbed the Meadows and Lake Kathleen Railroad from the US-rail-stub tag to the US-rail-company-stub. I have already reverted back to the previous edit. Masterchief46517 (talk) 21:54, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Vacillating - is a redirect Stub-class or Start-class ?Edit

sockpuppet editingEdit

Origins of the "Focus stacking" articleEdit

I intend to improve the "Focus stacking" article. To do this I would like some background, if you can remember, where you found information for the original writeup of the article. Anything you can remember could be helpful. Also, I have a few questions...

  1. Do you know of, or where I might find, reliable secondary sources that reference primary sources?
  2. What other names for this topic were considered?
  3. Why was it written as a "digital" process even though the title is more general?

I don't wish to burden you with a lot of work, so whatever you can recall would be helpful.
Thank you for your efforts.
