Templates and interwiki linksEdit

TXiKiBoT should check that any interwiki links it adds are within <nowiki> tags; its edit to {{IMN}} [1] resulted in interwiki links being transcluded inappropriately onto a number of other pages. --Stemonitis 19:15, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Same thing happened on 3 September with this edit to {{Province of Trento}}. The problem, which will have affected these pages, was spotted today and has now been fixed. —Ian Spackman (talk) 10:49, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

Wrong articleEdit

Please add the Italian foreign language version of Byzantine-Arab Wars 780 - 1180 to this article Byzantine-Arab Wars (780-1180). You have incorrectly added it to Byzantine-Arab Wars instead. Gabr-el 20:12, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Please check recent changes to the Girona articleEdit

These changes of 24 March 2009 (by 77.227.56.118) have somehow interfered with the initial Codes and all the Figures have disappeared from the Lead section (and elsewhere?). Please fix. (If I try I may make a mess of it!) Ombudswiki (talk) 03:30, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Wrong interwikisEdit

There is a wrong interwiki in a category about Oceania, for example if you see fr:Catégorie:Ville d'Océanie you will notice that it:Categoria:Città per continente is inappropriate for that interwiki because Città per continente is for continent and not for Oceania and therefore all interwikis with that Italian category are wrong, please correct that wrong interwikis.--Noder4 (talk) 22:26, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Removal of interwiki links from English surname pages to disambiguation pagesEdit

Hi. I noticed you removed interwiki links from two pages I had just created: Lameth and Hammes. I've reverted these, and I think that if you look at the relevant pages you will agree that it makes sense to link them.

The problem seems to arise because the English {{surname}} is not classified as a disambiguation page. However, there is a solution to this very problem at MediaWiki talk:Disambiguationspage#Re-add_.7B.7Bsurname.7D.7D (and a long discussion). Please can you make your bot respect this solution and recognise the line "((surname))" in MediaWiki:Disambiguationspage so that such links are not removed in future.

We seem to have had the opposite problem with Sauli. Do you have a solution for this?

Thanks and best regards, Hebrides (talk) 08:25, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Incorrect linking of Gwyn Nicholls to Gwyn on Swedixh site. FruitMonkey (talk) 07:03, 28 September 2009 (UTC) ...still relinking incorrectly.

Northern ArtsakhEdit

How can we stop the bot from inserting a link to the article that was deleted? This article was deleted in the Russian wiki, and moved to a temp in case that someone wants to rework it. So we cannot link to an article that is not in the main space of the Russian wiki. Thanks. Grandmaster 12:17, 7 October 2009 (UTC)

Edits not being marked as a bot editsEdit

A recent change to Kansas by this bot did not have the customary 'b' marking, indicating a bot driven edit (though it did mark as a minor edit). If this is really a bot, it should make changes as a bot to avoid being mistaken for a user pretending to be a bot to mask vandalism (though your edit was clearly not vandalism, it just wastes editor's time checking it). --ShadowRangerRIT (talk) 15:15, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Interwiki on article on Croatian WikiEdit

Article The 69 eyes has been written on Croatian Wikipedia more than a year ago, but there is no interwiki on Eng Wiki yet! Since the article in English is semi protected, could you please add iw on article in Croatian? Thank you!

--Gdje je nestala duša svijeta (talk) 18:06, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Hello once again!
The article The 69 Eyes is not protected anymore, so I've added the interwiki myself. Thanks anyway!

No hyphen in Farsi spelling of nameEdit

Recently a hyphen was added in Rosie Malek-Yonan's last name when spelled in Farsi. Though her last name does have a hyphen in English, when translated into Farsi, there should be no hyphen. I've removed it a few times but it appears again. Can you please help remove it. Thanks! Zayya 17:46, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

Language regulatorsEdit

Hello, I don't understand why the bot is supposed to remove these kinds of links: in this case neither fr.w nor en.wikt publishes this article, whereas fr.wikt does. JackPotte (talk) 16:53, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

Avalanche (1978 film)Edit

I dont' know why you put to the article Avalanche as vandalism, I don't understand. I needing a answer from you. --Danilo Andres Ramirez (talk) 18:04, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Category:Highways in CroatiaEdit

The category was repurposed on en: according to consensus, but the incoming interwiki link count seems to tip the bot back onto the bad old usage, like this. Please make it stop? --Joy [shallot] (talk) 18:18, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

CPL Resources Plc.Edit

Hi Bot, I hope your owner still reads this. I saw you edited the NL: referral from CPL Resources Plc. (which is currently a redirect) into nl:CPL Ltd. which is indeed the current Dutch article name. But as indicated on the edit where I changed this into nl:CPL Resources Plc. is there a request outstanding to completely rename CPL Ltd. into CPL Resources Plc. and by that remove the existing CPL Resources Pls. -> CPL Ltd.

When this request is done the current link in the EN article will be pointing to a #redirect.

Thats why I already changed it and noted it when making the change. That's also one of the problems I have with most bots around: although they do a lot of good work and we can't probably do without them anymore - but they are not flexible enough to handle exceptions.

I don't know if there is a way to edit something and give it a status that a robot won't be able to make changes or at least the robot-owner will get a warning that his bot tried to edit something and was stopped from doing it. The owner could then check out what/why this was done and decide to perform the changes anyway (but only with manual given 'override') or to keep everything 'as is. A little the same as a robo.txt file on a webbpage telling Spidering robots which pages NOT to index in searchengines.

If you are aware of any such functionality (or any project on this subject) please send me the details.

Regards, Jan JanT (talk) 17:52, 2 June 2010 (UTC)

Review requestEdit

Hi there! Could you, please, investigate the reasons behind this edit? The bot removed an interwiki article which was pointing to a correct equivalent in the French Wikipedia, and the French article still has an interwiki link pointing back to the English article. I don't see what went wrong, but something clearly did. Best,—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); June 17, 2010; 13:30 (UTC)

Reinsertion of wrong interwikilinksEdit

Hi, with this edit your bot reinserted two wrong interwikilinks I removed from the diglyceride article. These interwikilinks are to articles about 1,2-diacylglycerol, a subset of the group of chemicals called diglycerides (or diacylglycerols). In other words, the interwikilinks are to articles about a related but not identical subject. I'd like to avoid edit warring with bots, so would it be possible for you to stop the bot from doing this again? Thanks, Sakkura (talk) 14:14, 28 September 2010 (UTC)

Salanoia durrelliEdit

You removed my addition of the THREE not mentioned institutions, which described the species. This removal is biased and unjustified. The species is described by Durrell (WCT), Natural History Museum in London, Conservation International and Nature Heritage. Check out the paper and also the recent press releases. I am actually a co-author of the paper. Thus, I amended the entry by adding the justified links to ALL organisations instead of only DWCT. Moreover, you removed the addition that one animals was killed. Read the paper! It is a citation. By removing the addition, you have biased the the content of the description by pretending that all animals were released. They were NOT. Therefore, I rewets that you leave the additions as they are.

Category:Populated placesEdit

hi, can i please ask you to undo your edits concerning this category and all the related wikis. the edit http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Category:Populated_places&diff=455529733&oldid=447601379 and analogical ones in other wikiprojects are wrong. bar, be, de, pl, szl form a separate group that is NOT RELATED TO the categories of the other interwikis. "Siedlungsgeographie" does not translate into "populated places". I already had to undo this with another bot before and now again this bot is not getting it. so i dont know what is wrong with you. please correct the mistake of this bot accordingly. thanks. --Saltose (talk) 17:42, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Corinne Lamberth PaperEdit

Hello, I saw you contributed to the Aquaphilia(fetish) article back in 2007 and am wondering if you have access to the paper by Corinne Lamberth from 1998 on the psychology of the subject. I would also be very interested in getting an insight into the "Aquaphiles Journal" by Phil Bolton – maybe there is a Link I can feed the Wayback Machine?
