Testing (1)[edit]

Check, testing. Is this thing on? Killiondude 01:01, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

Appears out of control at best. --Herby talk thyme 13:33, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

If that is a legitimate run (I have no recollection of being involved in what I got the barnstar for) then maybe get it flagged as a bot at the very least. --Herby talk thyme 13:37, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
That would be me. The recipients of barnstars are people who have edited fundraiser translation pages more than twice. That may yield a few positives (esp. since a few of the pages were brought over from last year), but I figured it was better to thank too many than too few.

In your case that would be reverting vandalism on a few of the pages... (Which you also deserve thanks for, but maybe not with this barnstar.) Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 14:02, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

OK - apologies - it just seemed to be going a little mad. Unblocked --Herby talk thyme 14:15, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

No problem (thanks for looking out!). :-) I think the throttle is a bit too high; that's fine when editing multiple wikis (like the bot normally does), but when all target pages happen to be on the same wiki it can be too fast. Jon Harald Søby (WMF) 14:18, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

For those interested, the reason this was an issue was that EdwardsBot didn't have a bot flag here. Ideally he'd be a global bot or something, but I think that process is a bit much for me to handle.

We've got a drunken bot here. --Askedonty (talk) 21:17, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

Small error[edit]

Hi,

I had to fix this on the tech news. Regards, Automatik (talk) 18:56, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Yes, sorry about that. :-( Someone sent out a malformed message. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:19, 9 July 2013 (UTC)

Out of control?[edit]

Duplicate and triplicate postings. Whaledad (talk) 22:38, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

I suspect API stupidity, but it's possible EdwardsBot is to blame. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:29, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
