Applying ArchiverBot


(Moved from viwiki talk page) Hi, can you please run your ArchiverBot at viwiki? I have already:

Since the ArchiverBot is not available on viwiki yet, you need to:

  • log in with the bot account on viwiki.
  • test it first at vi:w:Thảo luận Thành viên:NgocAnMaster/Bản tin (I have already got the template transcluded, you might want to change parameters for testing).
  • if AbuseFilter here prevents you from editing, ask Plantaest (or other viwiki administrators here) to add an exception for this bot.
  • once the test is OK, request it here.

Thank you. (Also tagging Tryvix1509 for interest.) NgocAnMaster (talk) 05:38, 26 March 2023 (UTC)Reply

Has there been any local discussion about it already? whym (talk) 08:42, 26 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Well, we haven't started the discussion yet, but if the test is OK I'll start that. I've started one here. Thanks for asking. NgocAnMaster (talk) 14:47, 26 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Okay, the discussion looks good. I'm making another change to the bot (phab:T319568), and I'm planning to do this next. whym (talk) 14:08, 27 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
Got it. The discussion is now still open for 7 days. If it looks good, you can go ahead and test the bot. NgocAnMaster (talk) 14:20, 27 March 2023 (UTC)Reply
We have reached the consensus to deploy ArchiverBot for viwiki here. When you have done your work, let me know and we can deploy the bot then. Thanks! NgocAnMaster (talk) 11:29, 2 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Hi, are you ready to test ArchiverBot on viwiki now? I noticed that phab:T319568 has been resolved. NgocAnMaster (talk) 10:34, 6 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Test done - the bot made two edits. [1][2] whym (talk) 12:56, 8 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
OK thanks. You may continue testing the bot for now, and then make a new bot request. Anster (talk) 13:23, 8 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Well, your bot works good on my page (see w:vi:Special:PageHistory/Thảo luận Thành viên:NgocAnMaster/Bản tin and w:vi:Special:Contributions/ArchiverBot), just a matter of the CAPTCHA (as I see in your log, some archiving actions has been blocked due to CAPTCHA, since ArchiverBot is yet autoconfirmed on viwiki). Later on, I'll expand the archiving test range (means that I'll test your bot on more pages), so keep the bot running! I think with the community consensus, you may open a bot request here. I'll help you with that then. Thanks! Anster (talk) 03:36, 14 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Yes, with CAPTCHA, it looks like I need to start the bot manually for now. I might need some more time to read the documentation to see what's expected there before creating a bot request. I have never done that in a language I don't speak. In the meantime, if you want to/are allowed to do that for me, I'm happy to co-sign. whym (talk) 08:31, 15 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thanks! I know your difficulties in understanding languages other than your spoken languages, so I've open a bot request at w:vi:Wikipedia:Bot/Yêu cầu cấp quyền#Cấp quyền cho ArchiverBot for you. And yes, I'm willing to allow you to assist me in running ArchiverBot in viwiki. Thank you for your help. Anster (talk) 14:45, 16 April 2023 (UTC)Reply down


FYI, I get a 500 Internal Server Error when trying to access (which you appear to run). Best, —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 17:18, 21 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for notifying. I have no idea what was the underlying issue, but a manual restart seemed to work similar to [3]. whym (talk) 09:24, 22 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
Awesome, thank you! —‍Mdaniels5757 (talk • contribs) 17:16, 22 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

Thảo luận Thành viên:ThiênĐế98


This talk page is (currently) about 530K bytes and ThiênĐế98 wants to archive using your bot (ArchiverBot). However, after putting the archive template on that page (that was placed properly) for about 2-3 days, the bot doesn't archive anything on that talk page; instead, in the log, it throws the error as seen here. The parameter |counter= on the template set to 15, but it seems like the bot checks the previous archives (down to 1) before archiving (e.g. checking archive 14's page). Any solutions to this? Thank you. Anster (talk) 04:40, 29 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

It looks like the page (number 15 in this case) needs to exist. [4] (This might be an unintended effect of phab:T215247.) As a workaround, can you try creating the 15th page as an empty page? whym (talk) 12:41, 29 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
OK. I have created that 15th archive page. I'll get back to you later on to see if there's any problems. Anster (talk) 17:02, 29 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Looks like there were no problems now. Thank you for your solutions! Anster (talk) 12:16, 30 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
