Awesome! I will go and add this to the bot now! ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 08:14, 23 April 2013 (UTC)


I've noticed the possibility of translating these summaries. It's jolly nice of you to provide the possibility. I've now added a Macedonian (mk) translation on User:Addbot/Wikidata Summary. Cheers! --B. Jankuloski (talk) 09:47, 24 April 2013 (UTC)

Edit summary translation

Hello Addshore! I have added translation for edit summary in GU for Addbot. Please check it out! Thanks...--Vyom25 (talk) 07:37, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

This will be added in the next run! ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 09:38, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Please tell your bot to restore the interwiki links (en:History of responsa in Judaism, fr:Responsa (judaïsme), he:שאלות ותשובות, pl:Responsy, pt:Responsa, ru:Респонсы) at the above-mentioned page, or to create a new entry for them at Wikidata. These should not be linked together with en:Responsa, fr:Responsa & it:Responsa.

I can not comment on ar:جواب شرعي & bg:Респонса since I can not read those languages.

Sincerely, --Sije (talk) 02:28, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! You can edit the language links yourself! Please see the page d:Q3427762#sitelinks. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 09:42, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Wikidata weekly summary #58

Here's your quick overview of what has been happening around Wikidata over the last week.

User:Addbot/Wikidata Summary

Hallo, Addshore. I just added on User:Addbot/Wikidata Summary translations in lower and upper sorbian languages. Their language codes are dsb and hsb. Greetings --Tlustulimu (talk) 04:14, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 09:18, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

I am thinking of a new format for such Translation Requests, with support for {{plural}} commands and a new $user keyword. For example:

"it":"[[User:$user|Bot:]] migrazione automatica di $counter collegament{{plural:$counter|o|i}} interwiki a [[d:|Wikidata]], [[d:$id]]"

Also, the format should be easier-to-edit, without all those case and break pollutions. --Ricordisamoa 16:28, 26 May 2013 (UTC)

I started a demo at User:SamoaBot/Wikidata Summary/translate. --Ricordisamoa 16:30, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
...and you can read some documentation here. --Ricordisamoa 16:58, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
Good idea! When I first made the page I simply needed to think of a quick way to get peoples translations. Is the plan with [[1]] to use Special:Translate? ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 09:18, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I already marked it for translation, and put it in the Open requests for translation. It's so easy to add a language now! Moreover, the documentation page explains how to implement these translated summaries with PWB. --Ricordisamoa 17:53, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
All sounds lovely!! :D ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 23:10, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
I started adding some translations to the page, I have created a temp page at User:Addbot/Wikidata_Summary/temp where I will remove the translation from once I have added it to your new translation page. That way we can see when we are done :) ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 23:18, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Apotek at nn and no

Your bot removed the iw-links from these two articles, without adding them on Q43187 at Wikidata! 10:33, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Could you provide me with some links to the edits? Which wiki? etc. ·addshore· talk to me! 10:36, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
nn:Apotek and no:Apotek -- 13:15, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Hi! Please see that when the bot made the edit the links were infact on wikidata. Since this edit they appear to have been removed by d:User:Stern88888. I am looking into where they have gone now and will post here when everything is resolved! ·addshore· talk to me! 13:19, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

global editinterface rights

Hei Addshore, how about requesting global editinterface rights (see Interface editors) for Addbot on SRGP#Requests for other global permissions? I think your bot is trusted much and that would help very much on all wikis, so that the bot won’t leave so many interwikis on the protected pages anymore. Otherwise, it would be very much unnecessary work manually to remove these interwikis on the protected pages on every wiki, and in many of the wikis the interwikis would get older and older, because noone cares about this there. That wouldn’t help anybody in any way. So, because your bot is AFAIK the one which removes most of the interwikis (which are on Wikidata) globally, it would be great, if it could do so also on every protected page. I don’t know how long it takes for the bot to check every page in every wiki and remove the interwikis everywhere, but normally, editinterface editors get the global editinterface rights for one year. I think this would be more than enough for this work, and I also think there would be many supporters for this request, even if I don’t know if any bot has got those global rights before, but we can try to solve this (interwiki) problem this way. :-) Greetings --Geitost diskusjon 13:44, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Someone told me to do this on the weekend and I havn't quite got around to it yet, but I will do it now and will post a link here once done! ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 13:46, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Huggle for IOS and Android

Hi Addshore! Is possible to launch Huggle for IOS and Android system? Or there are a plan for this? Will be very interesting this. Thanks in advanced! Vitor Mazuco Msg 23:43, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Hmm, I don't really see this happening any time in the near future :/ There are no plans for a mobile version although there is currently a plan in motion to rewrite the whole application. ·addshore· talk to me! 10:35, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Is difficult to do this? Required many things? Because is very important to launch. Vitor Mazuco Msg 19:35, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

It has been proposed before and it would be an insane thing to have but in the current position of the huggle project there is no way we can develop such a thing. Our current priority is to redevelop huggle and release huggle 3. ·addshore· talk to me! 10:35, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Why link removed?


Why link on official site remove in UO:ru? It was approved by administration. Why in UO:de not removed? Why it not remove in sv, simple, it, lt, pt and many others, look like racism for the Russian auditory of wikipedia. Why bot who have name Add made remove, maybe it very big mistake in source code of the bot?

Please fix your bot and put back links in right place.

Thanks! — The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Hi there, If you are talking about this edit and the removal of Официальный сайт игры and Сайт русского сообщества Ultima Online, this was not the bot. Please take another look at the page history. ·addshore· talk to me! 10:32, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Addbot skipping Hebrew interwiki

Hello Addshore. I'm an editor and vandalism patroller on the Dutch wiki. Recently I came across this edit by Addbot on "our" Longitude. It would seem as if it didn't remove the interwiki to our Hebrew colleagues. Just wanted to let you know. No need to reply as I'm rarely here. Regards, Sander1453 (talk) 21:49, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

It's because the link was to a section! Such links are not included on Wikidata :) ·addshore· talk to me! 14:06, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Link not removed

Why didn't your bot remove the link to Portuguese in this edit nor in this edit? As far as I can see, the Portugues page has been part of the WD item since the start. --Njardarlogar (talk) 07:19, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

It would appear that this is due to the namespace used. On WD it is "Wikipédia" where as on wikipedia it it "Wikipedia"!. I should have a fix for this very soon that parses all versions of the namespace! ·addshore· talk to me! 09:02, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Template:Good article/doc

I have a question: en:Template:Good article/doc, de:Vorlage:Lesenswert/Doku, pl:Szablon:Dobry Artykuł/opis - should link to each other on Wikidata? Should I create entry for every "description"? PMG (talk) 19:36, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Those pages (the /doc pages) should not link together on wikidata, but the templates themselves should! So en:Template:Good article, de:Vorlage:Lesenswert, pl:Szablon:Dobry Artykuł!. By create an entry for every description what do you mean? ·addshore· talk to me! 07:55, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Not removed interwikis


There is somewhere list of interwikis what was left in articles/tempaltes/categories on pl.wikis? Because sometimes your bot left some interwikis (incorrect I presume). Can I get list of such articles? PMG (talk) 19:17, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Proxy Error

The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server. The proxy server could not handle the request GET /addshore/addbot/iwlinks/index.html.

Reason: Error reading from remote server

PMG (talk) 11:52, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

This was probably just a temporary error, this works for me now. ·addshore· talk to me! 12:46, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

Ok - sometimes works sometimes no. But its ok. One suggestion - can you make a filter for namespaces? For example for me its much easier to fix problem on templates and categories. PMG (talk) 13:25, 4 July 2013 (UTC)

I will add it to my todo list! ·addshore· talk to me! 07:55, 5 July 2013 (UTC)


6 days ago I deleted interwiki on this and other sides. But its still on your list. How often do you update this list? PMG (talk) 16:20, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

The list will update daily, but the bot currently doesn't import links to wikidata and will only remove them from the article if it can already find them on wikidata. Changes should be coming in the next week or so to make the bot better :) ·addshore· talk to me! 17:17, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Last Checked

Hi! Is it a known issue that the column "Last Checked*" is not been updated? E.g.: the list for Portuguese Wikipedia has "0000-00-00 00:00:00" in every row. Helder 16:56, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! Yes I am aware that the last checked date doesn't currently work (although I can tell you they are all checked daily). I am currently in the process of rewriting the bot and the database so you should see changes in a week or so! :0 ·addshore· talk to me! 17:15, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Addbot messed up mathematical texts

Hi, Addbot is removing Interwiki on fr WP links leaving blank lines. It should be better without. Could you please adapt the bot? Many thanks. --FDo64 (talk) 11:40, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Could you provide me with an example? Cheers! ·addshore· talk to me! 11:40, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Just forget. I had to fix a lot of this kind of discrepancies recently and I wrongly suspected your bot. Apologies. --FDo64 (talk) 12:27, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Ahh np! The bot does try its best to remove empty lines but generally only at the bottom of articles. ·addshore· talk to me! 13:13, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

Addbot and abuse filters on als-WP

Hei Addshore, could you please stop your bot on als-Wikipedia? It produces just about one edit per day but more than thousand edit attempts in the abuse filter log each single day since months. The last 5000 go back to July 24. That’s a filter called "Page blanking". I’m sure that nobody on als-WP cares in any way about their abuse filter logs and those private filters since years, their filters are all set on private (just for admins), 7 active filters, 4 of them block edits like this filter 5 does with your (and others) bot’s edits. So it doesn’t make any sense for the bot to produce thousands of logs per day. It’s just more server load and noone can see anything else in those filter logs because of these bot logs (which nobody sees at all in the recent changes). Please stop that until any admin on that wiki will care again about the filters there. I think the filters there should all be switched off, cause noone cares about the logs since years, and therefore they are useless and produce only problems like this and others. This filter has also filtered away an edit of Edwardsbot and a lot of EmausBot, but not so many the last days. Can you take a look at all the other wikis, where your bot removes interwikis, if there are more filters like that which continually stop your bot, please? Is there any possibility to look up automatically, if a bot produces filter logs in any wiki?

It’s not only this filter that produces problems there. For example: Some users can’t autocreate a local account there because of those stupid filters, User:Sk!d (admin on Wikidata) has tried that 7 times now since Novembre 2012 and nobody cares about that there, Eike sauer (admin on de-WP) can’t autocreate an account there (autocreateaccount is then being blocked by the abuse filter), $traight-$hoota, also a well-known user on de-WP, can’t autocreate an account there, and so on. Perhaps you can tell them to switch their filters off, if noone cares about them, see als:Spezial:Missbruchsfilter, especially filter 1 (Inappropriate username) and filter 5 (Page blanking). Then there would be less problems. Greetings --Geitost diskusjon 12:51, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

There are 8 admins on als-WP, and I only see that Terfili (who is inactive there since more than a month) has changed abuse filters in the past (last time 2012). Filter 5 (Page blanking) has been changed the last time in 2009 by User:Melancholie who hasn’t any admin rights anymore. als:Wikipedia:Ich brauche Hilfe seems to be the village pump there and not only for admin requestst, but may be the right page for these kind of requests, I don’t know. Or ask an active admin about that who doesn’t know what to do then? Manuel/User:80686 is very good in technical/IT things, but not very active there, but more active on the de-WP or here on Meta. I’ll place him a notice about this issue on his Meta talk page. --Geitost diskusjon 13:40, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

I managed to get a steward to exclude my bot from the edit filter :) It does currently exclude users with the bot flag, but apparently abuse filter has no idea what the global bot flag is :) ·addshore· talk to me! 14:55, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
Ah, ok, I see. That’s a bit better than before, but it would even be much better, if normal users like me also didn’t get into this stupid abuse filter just because of those interwikis. I won’t do any interwikis there anymore, if noone cares about that there, that’s for sure. But now your bot can do it again, but I fear, it can’t do all the interwiki fixes all alone. Let’s see. Is it right, that the other two bots also won’t get blocked by this stupid abuse filter now anymore (EmausBot, Edwardsbot)? --Geitost diskusjon 18:49, 28 July 2013 (UTC)
And do you know, if there might be other wikis with such abuse filter settings which block the migration of interwikis? --Geitost diskusjon 18:51, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

What about et-WP? There nearly each of the bot’s edits is being marked by abuse filter 2. Also nonsense, because the filter shall exclude edits of sysops and bots ("! "bot" in user_groups"). So the Wikidata bots should also be excluded there. At least, the edits aren’t blocked there at all, but only marked. But that should be changed nevertheless. The filter is a big nonsense in itself, it tells that it logs 65.80 % of all edits. Each edit in the article namespace and namespace 10 (templates) of a normal user (non-admin and non-bot) is logged by that filter. This is how the whole filter log looks like. Recent changes: Nearly every edit is being marked by that filter. What shall be the purpose of this massive filter logging? Is this normal or can this massive filtering been taken away? Is it abuse, when a normal user edits the et-WP? Shall only bots and admins edit it? I don’t understand that. The filter also says as follows: "Warning: This filter was automatically disabled as a safety measure. It reached the limit of matching more than 5.00% of actions." But it isn’t disabled, it still marks nearly every edit. Do you understand this? --Geitost diskusjon 21:57, 28 July 2013 (UTC)

I would just go and tell the stewards :P Many people just don't know how to use edit filters ! ·addshore· talk to me! 13:53, 1 August 2013 (UTC)

Addbot summary

Hi, i saw that recently your bot gives wrong summary after removing 1 or more than 1 interwiki link (in bengali wikipedia). If you are not using $counter anymore then remove $counter টি from Wikidata Summary (case "bn":), If you use {{PLURAL:$1|one|$1}} then remove $counter টি & add {{PLURAL:$1|একটি|$1টি}} or could you please give your current bot Wikidata Summary. Thanks--Aftab1995 (talk) 21:42, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

Hi there! The config has changed format and can currently be seen here. There is currently no support for the counter but I hope to add it soon! ·addshore· talk to me! 08:29, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
hm.. For now just remove টি before আন্তঃউইকি সংযোগ .... (Look here) & update that as soon as possible (to addbot) coz without $counter →টি have no value & makes wrong sentence. Please remember when you add $counter in your bot summary, add $counter টি for bnwiki (like this). --Aftab1995 (talk) 14:53, 5 August 2013 (UTC)

They want it in September some time, I know a few people are keen to learn more about Wikidata, maybe a group of us could have a training session over Skype? --Mrjohncummings (talk) 11:01, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
I would be more than willing to help you with that :) Any particular areas of wikidata or a general overview (covering as much as possible)? ·addshore· talk to me! 11:04, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
A general overview would be great and specifically for how the Office of National Statistics could be involved. What date would be suitable for you? Once we have a date I'll find others that are interested --Mrjohncummings (talk) 13:28, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Well, all dates are possible really :) Also rather than trying to do it over Skype it is probably rather possible that I could come back to the UK especially (flights generally don't cost much) ·addshore· talk to me! 13:29, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Ok great :) I'll speak to others and find some dates we can all do it, where in the UK would be good for you? I can potentially host it at the Natural History Museum where I work or it could be at the WMUK offices if London is ok. --Mrjohncummings (talk) 13:33, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
London would be good, flights are cheap and I could easily find somewhere to stay :) ·addshore· talk to me! 13:34, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Would a date in September be good for you? Weekend may be good for people's availability --Mrjohncummings (talk) 16:36, 14 August 2013 (UTC)

Addbot problem with ml.wikipedia script

Hi Addshore. I think that Addbot is having trouble distinguishing between two different renderings of Category:Brazil in the ml.wikipedia script. This and this. The page is the same but the URL is different. Thus it is not removing the ml link from pages such as ab, ast, av, and ay (just a few examples). The same may be true for the ml version of Category:Germany. I hope that solving this problem will help Addbot remove a couple hundred more interwiki links. 08:48, 6 September 2013 (UTC)

I am aware of this and will try and add some code to account for such cases as soon as I find time! :) ·addshore· talk to me! 08:25, 9 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks :) 11:51, 10 September 2013 (UTC)

Constructive feedback on Labs tools


Grep tool
  1. Maybe add a way to enter the language as a lang code, or add the codes to the <option>s? You already list the langs by lang code, so why not add the code to the text of each option?
    Can we do this on Meta and other non-language projects? It's not in the language list, as far as I can tell, but Wikimedia is one of the "Wiki" options. Also, why no Wikivoyage? I guess Wikidata is mostly Q-numbers anyway, so it may not be needed.
  2. Maybe you should either load "extra" local namespaces from each wiki, or allow the user to enter a namespace number directly (e.g., some Wiktionaries have Appendices)
    (this could be called a solution in search of a problem?)
  3. I hope this doesn't take up too many resources. What happens with regex .* on enwiki, for example?
This tool is great!
Regex Tester
This tool also seems to function well, at least sometimes. It does not work in all cases I tried, however. Is this intentional? (i.e., it only seems to work with one "match group".) If this is intended, then ignore this obviously.
  1. Works: pattern = (.* bar), subject = foo bar
  2. Doesn't work: pattern = (.)(.), subject = xy. Should have two matches, no?
Other potential problems
  1. I don't understand why the first line in the matches output (e.g., "array(1) {") is indented so much. Bug or feature?
  2. If the text of either box contains </textarea>, then the rest of the box will be interpreted as raw HTML. Similarly, a character entity (e.g.,  ) will be interpreted as the character itself. This might actually be a feature, though...

Help test better mass message delivery

Hi. You're being contacted as you've previously used global message delivery (or its English Wikipedia counterpart). It doesn't feel so great to be spammed, does it? ;-)

For the past few months, Legoktm has built a replacement to the current message delivery system called MassMessage. MassMessage uses a proper user interface form (no more editing a /Spam subpage), works faster (it can complete a large delivery in minutes), and no longer requires being on an access list (any local administrator can use it). In addition, many tiny annoyances with the old system have been addressed. It's a real improvement! :-)

You can test out MassMessage here: testwiki:Special:MassMessage. The biggest difference you'll likely notice is that any input list must use a new {{#target:}} parser function. For example, {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales}} or {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales|}}. For detailed instructions, check out mw:Help:Extension:MassMessage.

If you find any bugs, have suggestions for additional features, or have any other feedback, drop a note at m:Talk:MassMessage. Thanks for spamming! --MZMcBride (talk) 05:24, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Bug in grep

Hi Addshore! I discovered a bug in your grep-tool: The generated URLs are wrong for Wikipedia, they start with instead of I didn't test other projects, but I guess it's just because the database is named dewiki_p instead of dewikipedia_p, so it should happen only for Wikipedia. When you fix this, you could also change the URLs to protocoll-relative ones. Just for the case you want to quickly test and see this bug happen:^Doppelt&lang=de&wiki=wiki&ns=0 --Schnark (talk) 08:07, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

MassMessage has been deployed to all Wikimedia wikis. For help using the new tool, please check out its help page or drop a note on Meta-Wiki.

With over 400,000 edits to Wikimedia wikis, EdwardsBot has served us well; however EdwardsBot will no longer perform local or global message delivery after December 31, 2013.

Interwiki on Commons

Hi, Any chance you can run your Addbot on Commons to clean up some of the interwikis there. Commons is a bit different from other wikis since most links are from Commons Categories to Wikipedia Articles and those should remain as is for time being. However task that would not be controversial would be to remove interwikis from Commons pages if they point to pages within the same namespace on Wikipadia and make sure they are added to wikidata pages. In addition one could populate Commons_category property based on Commons category interwiki links which point to wikipedia articles. If you can do it, I could try to help you with the bot flag (if needed). --Jarekt (talk) 19:58, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately that won't be possible :/ The bot isn't really compatible with the way things work over at commons and is also currently in the process of being re written. ·addshore· talk to me! 12:28, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Global CSS/JS migration

Hello Addshore. You have a global.js page which contains your global scripts for all wikis. Since August 19th, your global.js and global.css pages are now automatically loaded on all wikis (see announcement).

This message is being left on your talk page at Meta-Wiki and those of your home wiki(s). Sorry for the duplicates.

Dear global bot operator: Some days ago you received a message in which you were informed that one or various accounts you hold lost a global bot flag because of inactivity. Due to a mistake, messages informing about this were not sent before removal took place as policy mandates. As such, if you think your bot will be active again on global bot duties, you can request the restoration of the global bot flag on the stewards' noticeboard at Meta-Wiki within the next two (2) weeks after this message has been posted. Please note that this removal was purely procedural based on inactivity. If you have any questions, you can reach me on my talk page at Meta-Wiki. Please accept my apologies in advance for this.

Global preferences ready for testing


I am contacting you because of your support for Global settings in the 2016 Community Tech Wishlist. Global preferences are now available for beta testing, and need your help before being released to the wikis.

  1. Read over the help page, it is brief and has screenshots
  2. Login or register an account on Beta English Wikipedia
  3. Visit Global Preferences and try enabling and disabling some settings
  4. Visit some other language and project test wikis such as English Wikivoyage, German Wiktionary, the Hebrew Wikipedia and test the settings
  5. Report your findings, experience, bugs, and other observations

Once the team has feedback on design issues, bugs, and other things that might need worked out, the problems will be addressed and global preferences will be sent to the wikis.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Keegan (WMF) (talk) 22:23, 26 February 2018 (UTC)

Timeless Newsletter • Issue 1

Newsletter • July 2018

Welcome to the first issue of the Timeless newsletter! This issue is being sent or forwarded to everyone who has at some point expressed an interest in the project, give or take, as well as a couple of other potentially relevant pages, so if you would like to continue (or start) receiving this newsletter directly, please sign up for further updates on the meta page.

The news:

The Timeless grant has been selected for funding, and the project is now underway!

While I've had a somewhat slow start working on the project for health reasons, I'm pleased to announce that everything described in the proposal is now either happening, or on its way to happening.

Current progress:

  • The project now has a hub on Meta to serve as a directory for the various related pages, workboards, and local discussions and help pages. It's probably incomplete, especially with regards to specific language projects that might have local pages for Timeless, so if you know of others, please add them!
  • Outreach: I've been talking to various people and groups directly about skinning, desktop/mobile interfaces, project management, specific component support, and other things, and have begun to compile a very shoddy list of skinning problems and random issues on based on this. Some of this may inform the direction of this project, or possibly this project will result in building a more proper list that can then be used for other things. We shall see.
  • Some development - task triage, code review, bug fixing, and various rabbit holes involving ...overflows.

General plan for the future:

  • Triage the rest of the workboard.
  • Catch up with all the talkpages and other bug reports that have been left various other places that are not the project workboard
  • Do all the bug fixes/features/other things!
  • Some proposals aimed at Commons and Wikisource in particular (maybe, we'll see)

Essentially, the grant as written shall be carried out. This was the plan, and remains the plan. Timelines remain fuzzy, but while there have been some initial delays, I don't particularly expect the timeline for project as a whole to change a whole lot.

Also, for anyone at Wikimania right now: I am also at Wikimania. Come talk to me in person!

Thank you all for your interest and support thus far!

Hello Addshore/Archive 2,

A policy regarding the removal of Inactive Bot was adopted by community consensus on Marathi Wikipedia. According to this policy, inactive UserBot accounts that didn't edit Marathi Wikipedia from last one year should be removed from Bot flag.

Your Bot meets the inactivity criteria. So this message was sent to you regarding the same. If u want to retain your Bot Flag on that wiki do notify here..

If u want to resign from the Bot user group inform the administrators or bureaucrat here..

Please note. If no intimation is received within 7 days, your Bot flag will be removed automatically.

Thankyou for your past contributions

Yours faithfully,

FileImporter and license migration


Do you know how to set up pages like so that it can convert license migration correctly?

GFDL and templates based on GFDL usually have the option to make license migration possible and they used arguments like:

  • migration=relicense / chuyển đổi=tái cấp phép
  • migration=redundant / chuyển đổi=trùng lắp
  • migration=not-eligible / chuyển đổi=không thỏa mãn
  • migration=opt-out / chuyển đổi=không đổi


{{GFDL|chuyển đổi=tái cấp phép}}

I thought of instead of having to clean up on Commons non stop it would be easier if I could figure out how to make FileImporter do the job for me :-) --MGA73 (talk) 16:09, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

I will ping some people to come and read this message and help you out! I don't have much involvement with FileImporter any more. ·addshore· talk to me! 18:15, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
Thank you! I'm trying to fix all files on all wikis... License migration, File metadata cleanup drive, moving files to Commons, Non-free content. Only 250 to go lol. --MGA73 (talk) 19:59, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
