Bot not notifying about Commons imagesEdit

I've not yet seen the bot notifying communities about Commons images nominated for deletion. Is there something wrong with the bot here? George Ho (talk) 16:10, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

Ahh, that staffer is gone. Has anyone taken over this task? — xaosflux Talk 18:05, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
@George Ho and Xaosflux: It is working, see its recent changes, for example this is a recent post on English Wikipedia. —Sam Wilson 00:15, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
Yet the bot hasn't sent notifications in talk pages lately, Sam. --George Ho (talk) 01:02, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
You're right, I wasn't looking at the dates closely enough. @MusikAnimal: you're more familiar with this than I am, can you have a look? Sam Wilson 01:14, 5 November 2021 (UTC)
Sorry for the delay. We're looking into this now. You can follow phab:T295938 for updates. MusikAnimal talk 22:04, 17 November 2021 (UTC)
  Fixed! That was quite a learning curve for me, but I think moving forward I have a good understanding of how to debug and fix this bot. MusikAnimal talk 01:45, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

Notification about a seven year old discussionEdit

This notification (also here) points to a deletion discussion from 2015. Is something wrong? --Muhandes (talk) 12:13, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

That is bizarre, and not the first I've heard of this issue. I'll try to look into it soon. Thanks for the letting us know, MusikAnimal (WMF) (talk) 20:51, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

Popular pages bot on Portuguese WikipediaEdit

@MusikAnimal (WMF): I am a member of the Project More Theory of History on the Wiki and the Project team has a strong interest in creating a Popular Page on the Portuguese-speaking Wikipedia. It will help us a lot to make the content in Theory of History more visible to the volunteers. Should be possible to use this tool on pt.Wiki? Could the code be adapted to do this task in a short term?

I appreciate any help. --Danielly Campos Dias (talk) 20:23, 21 January 2022 (UTC)

Duplicate notificationsEdit

set-up on mrwikiEdit

Would it be possible to set this bot up on Marathi wikipedia (mrwiki) for forgotten articles? It is a small project, with only ~85,000 articles. —usernamekiran (talk) 21:10, 17 April 2022 (UTC)

pinging @MusikAnimal and Xaosflux: —usernamekiran (talk) 20:17, 27 April 2022 (UTC)
@Usernamekiran Can do! We just need translations. If you are comfortable making a pull request on GitHub, please do so to the file. Specifically, for the "forgotten articles" report we need the following messages: reports_base_url, summary, forgotten-articles-desc, forgotten-articles-title, forgotten-articles-last-edited, and forgotten-articles-editcount, translating from the English messages. If you are not comfortable with GitHub, you can provide those translations here and I will add them for you. Best, MusikAnimal talk 03:23, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: will do. But first I will have to get consensus for these wordings. I have started the work on it in my personal repository, I will soon start a discussion at mrwiki's village pump with all the translated material. As soon as it is decided there, I will make the pull request. —usernamekiran (talk) 18:18, 30 April 2022 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: I proposed changes on github, I also created a blank page at mr:विकिपीडिया:डेटाबेस अहवाल/विस्मरणातील लेख to avoid confusion later. Also, on mr wikipedia, we don't get notifications on pings being sent successfully. Is it an easy/small thing to do? Or should I let it be as it is? Thanks a lot for your help. —usernamekiran (talk) 07:24, 3 May 2022 (UTC)
@Usernamekiran I don't see a pull request from you at Do you need help with that? Or I can update our repo on your behalf :)
I'm not sure what the relevance of successful pings on mr.wikipedia is to this bot. Was that an unrelated question? You should be getting notifications (the wiki shouldn't matter, I don't think...). If you're not, I would report this issue on Phabricator task, adding the Notifications tag. An engineer or product manager should then eventually review it. MusikAnimal talk 21:34, 4 May 2022 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: lol, sorry for being concise. Yes, the notification issue was a an unrelated question. I am not sure how to make a request on phabricator though. I had once followed the task of creation of "create log" on phabricator, but nothing more than that. It would be appreciated a lot if you made that request on phabricator. I definitely made a successful pull request this time :-D
—usernamekiran (talk) 16:58, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: Hi. I apologise, but I just realised that the notification on successful pings was disabled in my preferences. I dont remember turning it off though. Also, based on past interactions with other editors, I think it is turned off by default. I apologise again. —usernamekiran (talk) 20:46, 5 May 2022 (UTC)
Just a heads up that I'm waiting to get a different pull request merged before deploying this bot.
@Usernamekiran I did notice mr:विकिपीडिया:सांगकाम्या/विनंत्या. Do we need prior approval for this bot? I do not believe we need the bot flag, since the bot will only edit once a week. MusikAnimal talk 17:33, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: I am not sure if we need the approval, because like you said, it will edit only once a week, and that too in its own userspace. Getting a bot flag will also hide it from the recent changes, without the flag, many editors would see/find out about the reports. Still, pinging @अभय नातू: for clearing up the doubt. Also, I think the report should be updated once or twice a month, weekly would be a lot for a smaller community/active editors. —usernamekiran (talk) 17:49, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
@Usernamekiran and MusikAnimal:, The reason for a bot-flag here would be to stop cluttering recent-changes with edits being run in user's (bot's) own userspace, regardless of the frequency of edits. Obviously, if the # of rc entries are limited (say less than 20 per week), leaving them visible in recent-changes is a non-issue. Let me know if this answers that question. -- अभय नातू (talk) 23:11, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
That's all I need to hear, thank you! The bot is now running and just posted its first report. @Usernamekiran Please review and make sure this looks okay: mr:विकिपीडिया:डेटाबेस अहवाल/विस्मरणातील लेख. The schedule right now is it to run at 00:15 UTC every Friday. MusikAnimal talk 00:38, 13 May 2022 (UTC)
@MusikAnimal: Hi. I reviewed the summaries/edit, and everything looks good. Thanks a lot for your help :-) —usernamekiran (talk) 04:05, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

WikiProject Libraries - Popular pages not showing on botEdit

Hi - was wondering if anyone could help me get the User:Community Tech bot/Popular pages to show the popular pages from the WikiProject Libraries? Thanks for any help you can give Jamzze (talk) 21:53, 18 May 2022 (UTC)

Sortable tables for popular page reportsEdit

Feature request: smarter sorting of the last two table columns in popular page reports.

These currently sort the “assessment” and “importance” columns alphabetically. But the data has an intrinsic sort order that should be used. For assessment, that is FA, FL, A, GA, B, C, Start, Stub, and List, probably followed by all of the non-assessment classes like Current, Future, &c, in alphabetical order, and finally NA and Unknown. For importance, Top, High, Mid, Low, Bottom, Unknown, and NA.

An invisible sort key can be added to each wiki table cell using the data-sort-value="" parameter to control the sort priority, as explained in w:en:Help:Sorting#Specifying a sort key for a cell.

Correct sort order is listed in w:en:Wikipedia:Content assessment and w:en:Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Release Version Criteria#Priority of topicMichael Z. 2022-05-20 21:07 z 21:07, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
