PipepBot@{en,it,de,fr,...,probably more wikis}

I request that PipepBot (an interwiki bot not listed on Interwiki_bot/Operators) be blocked because it is out of control and causing disruption by removing lots of valid interlanguage links on multiple wikis. It is also moving existing interlanguage links around (out of alphabetic order) for no good reason, e.g. [3]. The bot owner has been notified of these concerns,[2] but I am suggesting a temporary block now across all wikis to prevent the bot causing further unnecessary disruption.

Please see the original misbehaving bot report on en-wiki. The bot is still very active and removing lots of valid interlanguage links on multiple wikis including en.wiki, fr.wiki, de.wiki, it.wiki (probably more wikis too). It has already been blocked on en.wiki, with the suggestion made there to request a steward to get it blocked on the other wikis too. - Neparis 20:43, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Ok, this bot is not out of control. The user is fixing interwiki conflicts. Please unblock/dont block this bot. Nothing wrong with these edits:
interwiki mess Software maintenance and Maintenance. --62.48.110.140 19:54, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Looks like Neparis owes someone an apology - Multichill 23:14, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
The bot's status (both rights-wise and block-wise) hasn't been altered. The main reason, I suspect, being the request to remove bot rights on big projects where there are numerous bureaucrats and administrators. We don't want to potentially override local policies and act as blockers and bureaucrats on projects where we're not. These wiki's sysops should have been warned instead of us. If there were particular wikis where only stewards can change rights and/or block, then those wikis should have been pointed out. Blocking spree is something we hardly do. Moreover, the case Neparis built here wasn't particularly strong, methinks, because otherwise, someone would have reacted. Of course, I might be mistaken, but I think that's a reasonable way of thinking. So, this is apparently   Not done. --FiLiP ¤ 23:21, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
I have left the bot-owner a message on his talkpage to stop the bot until the issue is solved, the bot was blocked on en.wiki and de.wiki afaik. I was just looking at many randomly chosen contributions over the wikis and it does not look like there is something urgently to be done (no damage is done, he removed links but the removes I checked looked ok to me)... However it is a bit arduous to check right now with the toolservers not working :S ... Best regards, --birdy geimfyglið (:> )=| 23:25, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
(from en-WP:ANI): Well, the ones that really caught my eye were the interlanguage link removals for dioxin.[14] I just reviewed them again and at least some of them still look like they might be considered at least somewhat controversial link removals. I could be wrong about it, but some wikis (e.g. Danish) seem to me to have an article on dioxin, but not yet an article on polychlorinated dioxins, which is a specific type of dioxin. In such a case, having interlanguage links to dioxin, as the general term, seems quite useful to me. User:Blech from de-wiki has told the bot owner that most of the interwiki links that the bot removed were correct and that he has reverted the bot.[2] I have not checked any of the other examples in detail, but I had a quick look at one of them — the aerosol link removals.[15] Particulates are a cause of aerosols, and, though I may well be wrong about it, some wikis (e.g. French) seem to have an article on the latter but not the former, so, in such a case, having the interlanguage links, e.g. to fr:Aérosol, seems quite useful to me. I am acting in good faith here, and if I have made a mistake I will certainly say sorry to the bot owner. Please let me know your thoughts — I can take a wikitrout or two. - Neparis (talk) 00:26, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
I am the operator of PipepBot. I update the bot code at least every day with svn, and I never modifies the code. Yesterday I was solving interwiki conflicts in manual mode, and I have shuted down the bot short before you decided to block it. The bot was never out of control. I don't think, the links I removed where correct links. As explained in en:Help:Interlanguage links#Bots and links to and from a section, "The activity of the bots also requires that interlanguage links are only put from an article to an article covering the same subject, not more and not less." I yust removed links to or from articles not covering the same subject. It is possible that some less edits could be controversial (especially en:City and en:Town), but you should consider that since August 2008 I have solved manually thousands of interwiki conflicts. The alphabetical order was respected based on the local names of the languages, and not according to the two-letter language (see en:Help:Interlanguage_links#Sorting).
Sorry for my bad english. Thank you! --62.48.110.140 19:54, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
The edit summary here was definitely not ok, as well as removing the link to hu.wiki. Due to security reasons I therefore blocked the bot on de.wiki until the issue is solved finally. --Thogo (talk) 20:05, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
