Undeletion request 2018 African Minifootball CupEdit

Hi, the article 2018 African Minifootball Cup was deleted because no more sources, hope to see the article, I will add more sources [1]. Best regards. --Fayçal.09 (talk) 12:13, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

@Faycal.09: Deletion log shows the bot deleted a redirect to African Minifootball Cup that was broken. Add to that article first, then once you have enough, split the 2018 material into a separate article. Hope that helped, Rotideypoc41352 (talk · contribs) 16:42, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
@Rotideypoc41352:, the article African Minifootball Cup was moved to a draft page, I sourced it and make a request. Then the article was restored. The 2018 African Minifootball Cup which is the first edition of this competition and wich is mentioned in the African Minifootball Cup article was deleted before, because no more sources. That's the reason why I make a request here and I'm ready to add sources as the exemple that I gave. --Fayçal.09 (talk) 17:21, 18 May 2020 (UTC).
@Faycal.09: based on the deletion log linked in my previous response, Wikipedia:Requests for undeletion would give you the faster response. Rotideypoc41352 (talk · contribs) 19:49, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Toronto-gauge railwaysEdit

User:AnomieBOT created the section Orphaned references in Toronto-gauge railways with a message about "50YPT" being an orphan referance, but I see no orphan references in Toronto-gauge railways. Is this a false-positive message? TheTrolleyPole (talk) 20:19, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

  Added to the force list. I note that none one the "this template has too many transclusions" complaints in the past few weeks were the result of vandalism. Anomie, would it make sense to revert the threshold for number of transclusions back to 100? * Pppery * it has begun... 01:30, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
(talk page watcher) No, it would not; it was reduced precisely because of vandalism: templates were being substed that shouldn't have been, in some cases to a completely unrelated target. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 07:13, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Vandalism by User: Chubbles on article Kelvin Taylor (actor)Edit

The following user: Chubbles is altering content on a Wikipedia article in format and description that is unusual and I have warned them about Vandalism 3 times. BBoyNeptune06 (talk) 11:24, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

@BBoyNeptune06: Any user with "BOT" at the end of their username is a computer program and not a human being. Read WP:NOTVAND and WP:AGF. Both you and Chubbles are trying to improve the article as you best see fit but have reached a disagreement over how to do so -- neither of you is engaging in vandalism but you guys need to sort the issue out on the article's talk page before editing the page any further. I'm not immediately recalling any relevant policies (other than perhaps WP:Verifiability and WP:BLP requiring that there'd have to be some explicit identification from him as being African American), and only found this essay on the issues of discussing race and ethnicity in Wikipedia articles.

@CrazyBoy826: why are you substing this/why does User:CrazyBoy826/sig exist? --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 02:03, 4 June 2020 (UTC)
Regardless, policy is clear that templates shouldn't be used in signatures, so substing this would be a clear improvement. Mdaniels5757, is there some reason I shouldn't add this to the force list? * Pppery * it has begun... 00:06, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
No objection, just confused. :) --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 00:08, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
@Pppery: Could you add it to the force list temporarily? CrazyBoy826 02:14, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
I thought I had dealt with this a few hours ago. No idea why the bot is still complaining. * Pppery * it has begun... 02:21, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
Pppery, it happened again. I've re-added it to the list, leave it there for a couple days -- I'm guessing the Job queue is backlogged. --Mdaniels5757 (talk) 03:19, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Remote duplicates on deletion sortingEdit

I've had to make this kind of edit removing a duplicate a couple times now. Since ABOT visits deletion sorting pages fairly regularly anyway, I'm wondering if it might be possible to take care of duplicates itself. (I don't know if that's a trivial change.) Anomie? --Izno (talk) 01:10, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Easy enough to code, but a BRFA is needed. Rules are rules. Anomie 19:42, 6 June 2020 (UTC)

Bournillon caveEdit

Hello I pointed out that this article is a translation of wikipédia.fr's article: {{Translated|fr|Grotte de Bournillon}}. Twice your bot deleted this message.Why?--Biboc (talk) 18:44, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

(talk page watcher) @Biboc: You refer, I presume, to this edit (and two more subsequent to that). The bot acted correctly, because the template is not for use in articles: per Template:Translated page#Usage, it goes on the talk page of an article, to which the bot duly moved it. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 20:16, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Inconsistency in the |df= option to some tagsEdit

AnomieBOT can sometimes add a |df= param. But I've noticed that the editor subsequently flags that parameter as an "unknowm parameter", when the article is is edit mode. E.g., in this edit (diff), the tag {{update after}} is added to an article by an editor. AnomieBOT comes by and changes it to {{update after|2020|6|14|df=US}} (which you can see if you open this section of the Talk page in the wiki editor) It seems there is a bug, or an inconsistency between what AnomieBOT does and what the wikisyntax interpreter thinks is valid syntax. Cheers. N2e (talk) 10:28, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

I scrolled through diffs back to 2014, and I don't see a |df= parameter. It looks like the bot should not add that parameter to {{update after}}. – Jonesey95 (talk) 13:24, 14 June 2020 (UTC)
You're right, it should only add |df= to {{as of}}, not to {{update after}}. Fixed the bot. Anomie 19:57, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

TemplateSubster: Template:Summary2 has too many transclusions - FixedEdit

In an effort to prevent disruption, I refuse to subst templates that have over 5 transclusions unless they are listed at User:AnomieBOT/TemplateSubster force. Please either edit the template to remove it from Category:Wikipedia templates to be automatically substituted, manually subst the existing transclusions, or add it to User:AnomieBOT/TemplateSubster force to let me know it is OK to subst them.

It looks like the template has 30-some transclusions, which isn't too surprising given its advanced age. I added subst-only auto to mirror {{uw-editsummary}}, a very similar template, and other user warning templates. Is it okay with another human if I tell the bot to go forward here? {{u|Sdkb}}talk 07:03, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Bot issueEdit

Hello, it appears the EnDashRedirectCreator function of the bot has added the {{R avoided double redirect}} tag to many redirected templates, project pages and (mostly) talkpages. This tag is not to be used on pages in those namespaces, and so they are all winding up in Category:Pages with templates in the wrong namespace. Any way you could rollback these edits by the bot, and prevent similar ones form happening in the future? Thanks, UnitedStatesian (talk) 03:45, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

Why shouldn't that template be usable in other namespaces? Avoided double redirects don't only need to be fixed in mainspace. Anomie 11:02, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
Do you want to fix the damn things? I don't!! Have the Foundation hire someone to support worthless avoided double redirects that infinitely double-redirect from one stupid disambiguation to another trying to find the non-existent mention of some trivial non-notable topic that can't be found anywhere in the 'pedia. There are too many "chiefs" around here making too much work for the slaves and the slaves are getting sick of it! wbm1058 (talk) 04:29, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
We don't have enough resources to manage that shit in mainspace much less talk. Ya gotta learn to set priorites. This is just distracting resources from fixing things that really are broken. wbm1058 (talk) 04:39, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
Ranting at people and pretending that anyone is somehow forcing you to do anything here is not particularly constructive. Personally, I'd be happy to have AnomieBOT auto-update avoided double redirects tagged with {{R avoided double redirect|auto=yes}} or something, as it will already do now for any that it itself created for en-dashed titles. Anomie 14:47, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
That's a question for the template's talk page, but until such time as discussion leads to a change in consensus, the template should not be used outside mainspace pages. Accordingly, please revert the bot's edits. Thanks, UnitedStatesian (talk) 22:55, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
Personally, I'd have not wanted to go do a bunch of partial reverts just to have to revert the reverts soon after. But it turns out that the discussion already resulted in a change in consensus, and was implemented an hour before your post that I'm replying to now. Anomie 11:45, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Talk:List of Billboard number-one singles of 1946 (Pre-Hot 100) is labeled for avoided double redirect but its corresponding article-in-waiting List of Billboard number-one singles of 1946 (Pre-Hot 100) is not! Why is that. You used "modification" but that says "Please note that there are many more specific templates."... hint, you should use "avoided double redirect" on that page. Why is it more important to tag a talk page for avoided double redirect than the corresponding article. If the talk page is kept synchonized with its article (i.e. one doesn't move without the other moving with it) then it should be sufficient to just tag the article because when the article is fixed to go to the correct target its talk page will be too. wbm1058 (talk) 14:04, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

List of Billboard number-one singles of 1946 (Pre-Hot 100) was created before AnomieBOT was coded to add {{R avoided double redirect}} and has not needed its target updated yet; I didn't particularly want to try to get consensus for a task to have the bot edit 200000 redirects just to add {{R avoided double redirect}} when I was more concerned with the ones the bot had created that actually needed updating. Talk:List of Billboard number-one singles of 1946 (Pre-Hot 100), on the other hand, did need updating thanks to moves of and changes to Talk:List of Billboard number-one singles of 1946 (Pre–Hot 100), so {{R avoided double redirect}} was incidentally added at the same time the target was fixed. Anomie 14:47, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

Translate pageEdit

Hello, i am a new editor in wikipedia. I was created a article in Indonesian name Hendra Purnama, but i dont know how to translate it to Englis, Azeri and Dansk. Semuel Tahun (talk) 06:18, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

In spite of this probably not being the place to ask such questions, there is already an article about the archer Hendra Purnama here. The very much stub Indonesian article id:Hendra_Purnama needs to be equated with it at Wikidata (and possibly have material translated from English to it). Dhtwiki (talk) 12:08, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
I've gone ahead and made the Wikidata entry equating the two pages. Dhtwiki (talk) 12:28, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

Roman RetzbachEdit

Hallo AnomieBot, thanks for your great support! Cu, Yves 🙏😍 YvesMe (talk) 15:42, 25 June 2020 (UTC)

Template additionEdit

My apologies about the template, which I believe was the result of an edit conflict. Huggle should know better! Cheers, Jusdafax (talk) 04:44, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

False informationEdit

Please do not give wrong information on your user page seen HSaurab (talkwork) 09:46, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

You seem to be lost. That page has nothing to do with this bot, other than having had {{click}} bot-substed prior to that template's deletion about six months ago. Anomie 13:17, 9 July 2020 (UTC)

Shouldn't the bot know when a template is used in the incorrect space?Edit

The Bot saw this [2] addition of a welcome template to an article, and went ahead and added the boilerplate welcome to the article. Meters (talk) 09:43, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Genuinely curious, but how would it know? While I agree it's a problematic edit, there are subst-only templates in userspace and subst-only templates in article space, and I would think that the only way to determine that would be to have a gigantic list of which are which. Another option could be to use {{main talk other}} or similar to have it output nothing in mainspace, but again that would require going through a ton of templates in order to do that. I guess the real question is, how often does this sort of thing happen? If it's less than once per day, then I feel like it's more of a GIGO situation than anything. Primefac (talk) 11:02, 15 July 2020 (UTC) (talk page stalker)
No biggie. I have never seen it before and I was just surprised. If there's no easy way to tell what space it's in then I fully understand the behaviour. Meters (talk) 22:07, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Reasons for this edit?Edit

This edit appears to me to have no merit. Certainly the article could bear a lot of improvement, but the first-person pronoun is obviously being used as a figure of speech that is not meant literally. And where do you find any "how-to" component in the article that would justify such a tag? Michael Hardy (talk) 20:07, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

The bot uncontroversially added |date= parameters to templates that were added by another editor (TenPoundHammer). You should ask that editor about the tags, preferably on the article's talk page or on that editor's talk page. – Jonesey95 (talk) 20:46, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

OrphanReferenceFixer: Blacklisted orphaned reference in Little Haiti - FixedEdit

When trying to fix orphaned refs in Little Haiti, MediaWiki's spam blacklist complained about city-data.com. This probably means someone didn't properly clean up after themselves when blacklisting the link and removing existing uses, but a human needs to double-check it. The attempted changes were:

  • Little Haiti revision 968000522:
    • Rescued "LittleHaiti" from rev 967999804
      Removed in revision 968000522 by Tdk408 (talkcontribslogs) with comment "/* Demographics */Given the other numbers, 1,983 residents makes no sense. This number appears nowhere in the footnoted document." (removed 224/17848 bytes, 1%)

You might also use {{subst:User:Anomie/uw-orphans|1=rm diff|2=fix diff}} to let the remover know, if their edit summary indicates they were specifically removing the blacklisted ref. When you have fixed this issue, please change the section title (e.g. append " - Fixed") or remove this section completely. I will repost the notice if the page is still broken or is re-broken. Thanks! AnomieBOT 18:48, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

I don't understand. I remover incorrect, logically impossible data. The data in the article is not in the article when I checked th footnote. Tdk408 (talk) 20:37, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Sorry. I.meant to say the data does not appear in the linked web page in the foot note. Tdk408 (talk) 20:38, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

@Tdk408: Your edit removed the definition of the reference named "LittleHaiti", leaving behind a <ref name="LittleHaiti" /> that now has no definition. That causes the page to show Cite error: The named reference LittleHaiti was invoked but never defined as seen at Special:Permalink/968000522#cite_note-LittleHaiti-12. The bot tried to provide a definition, but was unable to because city-data.com has been blacklisted, so it complains here to ask a human to figure out how to fix it. Someone (maybe you!) might fix it by replacing the <ref name="LittleHaiti" /> with {{citation needed|date=July 2020}}, or by finding another source for the information and replacing the <ref name="LittleHaiti" /> with the new citation, or by replacing/removing the relevant content that was supposedly sourced to the blacklisted site if it too is in error.

User:AnomieBOT IIIEdit

Hello, Anomie,

AnomieBOT III stopped updating the broken redirects pages a couple of days ago.

Feature request: link to list of transclusionsEdit

@Anomie: Can you make a change to tasks/TemplateSubster.pm, namely changing manually subst the existing transclusions to manually subst [{{fullurl:Special:WhatLinksHere/$title|hidelinks=1&hideredirs=1}} the existing transclusions]? This will make it quicker and more convenient to see what happened. Jackmcbarn (talk) 05:32, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Italics in quotations removal request.Edit

In the article, Levels (Avicii song), all the quotations are in italics. I have put the article on peer review and someone wants me to remove the italics.

This has no transclusions, but the bot already put this back twice after it was cleared, so I'm going to leave it active this time until @Anomie: sees it and hopefully knows what's going wrong. Jackmcbarn (talk) 04:22, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Jackmcbarn, not Anomie, but I think it may be that {{Adddisamb}} contains {{documentation|content={{subst only|auto=yes}}}} which adds it into Category:Wikipedia templates to be automatically substituted, so I guess the bot is processing it per User:AnomieBOT/docs/TemplateSubster? Not sure what's up with the "too many transclusions" part though ProcrastinatingReader (talk) 14:49, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Probably has to do with the Toolforge replication lag discussed at Wikipedia:Village pump (technical)#Toolserver replication lag for enwiki is now over 36 hours. I see it's currently showing 63 hours lag on the "web" replicas for s1 (which is enwiki). Anomie 15:29, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
FYI: AnomieBOT uses the "web" replicas for TemplateSubster (for fetching the category members and counting their transclusions), EnDashRedirectCreator (for finding redirects needing creating/updating), and TemplateTalkRedirectCreator (for finding talk pages needing creation). It uses "analytics" for BrokenRedirectDeleter (for finding broken redirects). The choice is somewhat arbitrary; but "web" is supposed to be more responsive while "analytics" is supposed to be for longer-running queries. All the other tasks don't use the Toolforge replicas at all, just the Action API. Anomie 15:34, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

Removal of maintenance templateEdit

Hello, you recently added a maintenance template at Fractal Analytics stating that "this article may have been created or edited in return for undisclosed payments". To confirm, Fractal has not solicited any partner to do such work. There was some updates from the User:Sachi_bbsr but it was voluntary and we have not given him ay form of payment from our side. Please check and request you to remove the maintenance template at the earliest else we will do so in the next three days. --Vinaynair85 (talk) 10:44, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

If you are here because you think AnomieBOT added {{citation needed}} or another maintenance tag to an article, please check again. AnomieBOT only added the current date to a maintenance tag added by another editor in a previous edit. The maintenance tag was actually added by Emufarmers * Pppery * it has begun... 13:06, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Okay, Thank you.Vinaynair85 (talk) 13:27, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

CFDClerk: Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2020 July 25 is broken - fixedEdit

Help! A section in Wikipedia:Categories for discussion/Log/2020 July 25 contains the "is_closed" regex but not at the beginning of the section. Probably someone put the {{cfd top}} before a section header instead of after. Anyway, I can't do anything to that page until someone fixes it. When you have fixed this issue, please change the section title (e.g. append " - Fixed") or remove this section completely. I will repost the notice if the page is still broken or is re-broken. Thanks! AnomieBOT 20:12, 3 August 2020 (UTC)

This happened because some closed CfD's were listed at move review. Wikipedia:Categories for discussion says Wikipedia:Move review can be used to contest the outcome of a CfD request that is limited in scope to renaming, and Wikipedia:Move review says Leave notice of the move review in the same section as, but outside of and above the closed original move discussion. Everything seems to have been done correctly according to the instructions, so I think the bot's regex just needs to be updated to handle this case. Jackmcbarn (talk) 22:04, 3 August 2020 (UTC)
Hmm. Fortunately it appears to work exactly like the more common {{Delrevxfd}}, which the bot already handles. Anomie 01:57, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
