Hello. That's okay, your 21 bot accounts have just been flagged [1]. Cordially, -- Quentinv57 (talk) 22:08, 18 August 2011 (UTC)


Hi there,

Per Meta:Requests_for_deletion#Template:User_language, the old template has been replaced and will soon be deleted once it has been removed. It has been replaced with the new {{#babel}} extension. Please undo your revert of my edit.

A barnstar for you!

Hi! I just want to thank you and give you this barnstar for your help with the translation of the 2011 fundraiser! The fundraiser was the best we ever had, both in terms of the amount we collected and in terms of number of translations. We couldn't have done either one without the help we got from you and other translators. If you are interested, we made a report, which has some statistics about the translations.

And: I have one more request, and that is that you take this survey. You may have got an e-mail about it, and if you did, please ignore this. But if you didn't it would be great if you would take this survey too, so we can learn to improve the translation experience.

Again, thanks for your help with translations – you're awesome! Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 14:34, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

IRC cloak request

Hello Avocato. You recently applied for a Wikimedia IRC cloak, but it looks like you forgot to register your nickname first. Could you please log on to IRC and do:

/msg NickServ REGISTER <password> <email>

where <password> is a password of your choice and <email> is your e-mail address? After you do that, please follow the instructions that are e-mailed to you to confirm your e-mail address. When you're done with that, I just need you to confirm your cloak request:

/msg MemoServ send wmfgc IRC cloak request

After you finish all of that, I'd be happy to get you a cloak. :-) If you have any questions, feel free to ask me on my talk page. --FiliP ██ 19:44, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

No, you're safe. You should have your cloak soon. --FiliP ██ 21:31, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Checking ptWV

I haven't had to dig into account moving so I have done a test move with your ptWV account, and it is sitting there unattached. Can you check that you can reattach it before I progress with others. Thanks. It would be good if you could let me know on my talk page. To note that I see more accounts at stalktoy than are listed at the rename page. — billinghurst sDrewth 15:16, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

All that can be done have been   Done. Check stalkftoy for those that are problematic. You will also need to work out whether there is a need to blank the user pages as I did not tell it to NOT create redirects, will which need to accord with local policies at the wikis. — billinghurst sDrewth 14:08, 21 August 2012 (UTC)


Can you add my user interwiki to the Bot? A few months ago I would add. Greeting! --Kolega2357 (talk) 11:59, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I'm so sorry, I can't operate my bot globally to update interwiki links for your bot's userpages. Editing namespace 2 (user namespace) is controversial and goes out of global bot scope, most of wikis doesn't allow this kind of edits. I can only edit my bot's userpage (User:AvocatoBot), but I can't even edit my personal userpages (User:Avocato). I'm so sorry again.--Avocato (talk) 12:36, 8 September 2012 (UTC)

Multilingual wikisource bot request

Hello Avocato, I can't give the flag for redirects because the wikisourcian redirects are tricky in what i can understand, and i can't know for languages that i don't understand if it is not asked for by the people who need it. For instance: the last redirect your bot did on May 7th

  • 22:28, 7 May 2012 (diff | hist) . . (0)‎ . . m Frederic Mistral ‎ (Robot: Fixing double redirect to Autor:Frederic Mistral) (top)
  • 22:28, 7 May 2012 (diff | hist) . . (-1)‎ . . m Autor:Frédéric Mistral ‎ (Robot: Fixing double redirect to Autor:Frederic Mistral) (top)

was not right because Frederic Mistral is not a correct name , the name is Frédéric Mistral in French, Frederi Mistral or Frederi Mistrau in Occitan, and the linking is a complicated thing, it can't be automatic.

But an automatic welcoming might be decided, if we don't find any other solution to discourage spammers, because the welcome is the same in all languages and is easy to adapt for a very experimented bot like yours. It has remained undecided for now but it can be thought useful soon. So this is why for the time being the answer is neither yes nor no on the multilingual wikisource and we would be happy if you can wait. Thanks and regards, --Zyephyrus (talk) 20:19, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

block on de

Hi. I blocked your bot on the de:wp as there was a request on the vandalism page. Please clear there the question of a bot flag. Regards, -jkb- 17:13, 18 November 2012 (UTC)



Your bot was blocked for 3 days, because of flooding of Recent Changes. Please take a look at de:Wikipedia:Bots and de:Wikipedia:Bots/Anträge auf Botflag for the procedures regarding bots and flags at de.WP.

Cheers, Rbrausse (talk) 17:14, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Wait a minute, there was something wrong, we are discussing it now. -jkb- 17:18, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

It seems to be all right, it was a wrong message, I deblocked your bot. Sorry for circumstances, have a good time, regards -jkb- 17:21, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

It's ok, but I see that you changed block settings to be indefinite, please unblock it.--Avocato (talk) 17:36, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

though you should activate "Bot edit" in your framework - your bot has the flag but you the edits are not marked properly. Rbrausse (talk) 17:25, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

What should I do exactly?--Avocato (talk) 17:36, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
1. some Admin has to unblock your bot first, it seems -jkb- used the wrong button :)
2. it should possible to mark the edits as "bot edit", what framework do you use? (see the Edit-API for a general overview, you should use the parameter "bot")
Rbrausse (talk) 17:41, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
1.   Done by -jkb-.
2. Pywikipedia.
--Avocato (talk) 17:50, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
never ran a bot, but the code looks as if the botflag is automagically set. You could ask de:User:APPER, he is our bot specialist.
is it possible that you renamed your bot from GedawyBot to AvocatoBot? This may explain why your edits are not marked and the de.WP bot template claims that AvocatoBot has not bot flag. Rbrausse (talk) 18:10, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
oh, and don't hesitate to run your bot: You have a flag, the bot makes useful edits - the vandalism report was a mistake of an unexperienced "vandal hunter".
cheers, Rbrausse (talk) 18:30, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
I use the standard, scripts which are automatically updated. Yes, my bot has been renamed from "GedawyBot". Thanks for your encouragement. Best regards.--Avocato (talk) 19:44, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
now it seem to be fine, somebody changed the tag in the database and your bot is now tagged as flagged, regards -jkb- 22:55, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for all you efforts.--Avocato (talk) 23:14, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Account rename on Wikiversity

My apologies, Avocato.

No problem, just a quick not to say that the code is still changing so the code I am using is probably a bit different to that on git. ·Add§hore· Talk To Me! 15:02, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Weird bot edit

Hello Avocato, any idea why your bot performed this edit? --Dschwen (talk) 23:04, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello Dschwen. I'm really not sure, but maybe «WikiMiniAtlas/en» was correctly redirecting to «CNBanner:WikiMiniAtlas» before PiRSquared17 (talk · contribs) deletes it. Anyway, Trijnstel (talk · contribs) has corrected the issue. Thanks for notifying me.--Avocato (talk) 00:17, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
