Portal:United States/United States news/Wikinews is outdatedEdit

User:JJMC89 bot/Wikinews importer hasn't updated the page Portal:United States/United States news/Wikinews with content from wikinews:Portal:United States/Wikipedia in six months. It seems that Wikinews importer hasn't been updating a lot of portal subpages, e.g. Portal:Film/Film news/Wikinews used as an example in documentation hasn't been updated in more than a year. —⁠andrybak (talk) 10:50, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

That task has been offline since Pywikibot stopped supporting Python 2 last year. (Python 2 is past EOL.) I've started it up again. — JJMC89 22:35, 18 January 2021 (UTC)


It looks like Ankith yannam first moved Kalwakurthy to Talk:Kalwakurthy_CITY where it was deleted under G8. Ankith has since recreated something in Talk:Kalwakurthy_CITY. Could you restore the deleted page and move it back to Kalwakurthy where the orphaned Talk:Kalwakurthy is still present? Sam Sailor 08:56, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

  Done — JJMC89 21:29, 18 January 2021 (UTC)


Hi, I assume the latest reversion to the above was a bot edit; it restored a string of nonsense letters that were added a couple of seconds before. I've restored the correct version. Cheers to you! Haploidavey (talk) 18:46, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks. I shouldn't have reverted but ticked the wrong box when blocking them. — JJMC89 21:34, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Ummm... you might want to check the contributions of the user you blocked. The user's edits (User:TrigZyx) look OK to me. Regards, Haploidavey (talk) 18:55, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Their abusive edits are deleted. — JJMC89 21:34, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Aha. Thanks for that (I thought your bot might have gone on a wobbly :-)Haploidavey (talk) 22:24, 18 January 2021 (UTC)

Please HelpEdit

A friend of mine suggested me to create an article about a poet and author Asif Tariq Bhat but it seems that there is something going on about the same subject. I would request you please grant me permission to create the article of the said subject I have collected some strong references. I will be thankful for your help.

The article was deleted after community discussion, so you don't have permission to create it. — JJMC89 21:36, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. Can't it be created again in future by anyone? Sardar Nadir Ali (talk) 15:26, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
I am extremely thankful for your reply I just want to ask that when will be the ban lifted and when I or someone else may get permission to create the said subjects Article? Sardar Nadir Ali (talk) 18:00, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
If the concerns in the discussion are addressed, then an article may be created. I suggest that when that happens to start with a draft. — JJMC89 04:20, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

CFD Speedy redirectEdit

Hi, thanks again for all your excellent bot work.

Please can you add the "REDIRECT" function for a Speedy merge at WP:CFDW? I think this currently works for a Speedy move, and for a regular merge or move, but not for a Speedy merge (e.g. [1]). – Fayenatic London 22:14, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Draft proposal about AIVEdit

Hi! There's a draft proposal about a small step towards block unbundling. I noticed you do a lot of WP:PERM/R, so I was wondering if you had any comments on the proposal. Specifically, two important open questions are how many people we expect to apply for/get the role, and how high to set the bar for granting it. Thank you.

Bot stutteringEdit

FYI the bot has been processing categories for a few minutes at a time then stopping for ages before resuming all afternoon. Timrollpickering (talk) 17:55, 25 January 2021 (UTC)
