Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Abián, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Happy editing!

Hi. I deleted the page that you just created, Usuario:Invadinado, since it became an ordinary page and not your user page. You have your user page on User:Invadinado since Meta is using English, despite that it's a multi-language project. -- Tegel (Talk) 18:31, 5 January 2012 (UTC)Reply

Invadibot ha sido autorizado[edit]

Hola Invadinado. He autorizado tu robot bajo la cláusula de aprobación automática lo que te permitirá continuar usando el flag para trabajar con las redirecciones. En el caso de que quisieras expandir el trabajo del bot deberías volver a solicitar autorización. Un saludo. -- MarcoAurelio (talk) 13:37, 4 March 2013 (UTC)Reply

Commons links[edit]

Why doesn't this just use the "commons:" prefix? I'm confused. PiRSquared17 (talk) 11:34, 27 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Because the presentation wouldn't be the same, due to there is not a defined text to show:

Your edits on a chapter report[edit]

Please refrain from editing in the WM NL chapter quarterly report. Ad Huikeshoven (talk) 12:54, 27 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Invadibot is destroying links[edit]


Invadibot is breaking links by converting them into protocol-relative links without discretion, see e.g. [2]. Can you please make an effort to review the bot's past edits for other such problems and fix them, and adjust the bot's rules so that this doesn't happen again?

Also, what is the rationale for automatically replacing all these links by protocol-relative links? I understand the reason for doing so in case of links from one SUL wiki to another (where a protocol-relative link might have the slight security advantage of saving a logged-in user the effort to log in on the target site separately, if they prefer to view or edit it while being logged in). But this does not apply to links to other sites, e.g. https://blog.wikimedia.org/ , and for these, converting HTTPS links to protocol-relative links arguably means a decrease, not increase, in security.

Regards, HaeB (talk) 19:10, 27 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Hmm. When I reviewed the bot's edits I didn't see any problematic links but clearly there were some chapter ones that were missed out in the ~200 trial edits. As far as I understand links from https:// are not being converted to protocol relative links, partly for that reason and additionally because there can be some other error messages. Thehelpfulone 20:17, 27 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Is the bot's code for these conversions public? It might be safer to restrict them to sites where this is known to work, or to use the HTTPS Everywhere ruleset for Wikimedia sites, which includes a lot of exemptions for smaller domains that don't have HTTPS support, like dumps.wikimedia.org or the really obscure yongle.wikimedia.org.
If HTTPS links are not converted (this wasn't obvious from the description, but looking at some other edits it seems you are right), that of course takes care of the second concern.
Regards, HaeB (talk) 01:22, 28 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
To note that I (temporarily) blocked the bot earlier today as it was editing spam blacklist subpages, and threw COIBot into spasms in IRC and that fallout is still propagating through. Not necessarily a fault of the bot, however, I am being conservative. I reverted a couple of pages and protected them for the future. I also see that the bot is operating in archives of stewards' pages, and I am not sure that it is necessary, or in fact advisable. — billinghurst sDrewth 05:05, 28 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Okay I don't know why we are editing pages from many years ago, especially in archives. How far did the bot get before I blocked it? In which namespace is the bot operating? How often is the bot going to be operating? Continuously, one-off, periodically? That information doesn't seem to be available from my quick look. I am going to extend the block so we can have some of the questions answered. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:05, 28 April 2013 (UTC)Reply
Apologies for blocking the IP address too, my mistake, and now corrected. — billinghurst sDrewth 06:08, 28 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Minor bug[edit]

In this edit, I think the bot should have un-escaped the URLs (like oswiki and hywiki ones). Although leaving it percent-encoded doesn't break the link, it makes it harder to read. Similarly, it should replace underscores with spaces (although this is debatable). PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:23, 27 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Unless there's a reason for the percent-encoding? PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:27, 27 April 2013 (UTC)Reply

Re-run link correction[edit]

Hello, are you planning to run the bot again? (Provided that the problems above are fixed.) It would be useful given HTTPS becoming the default for registered users. --Nemo 12:50, 22 August 2013 (UTC)Reply

Wikimedia LGBT[edit]

I am reaching out to people who have translated pages here at Meta to assist with translating pages at Wikimedia LGBT. If you are willing and able, any assistance would be appreciated. If not, I understand. Thanks for your consideration. --Another Believer (talk) 00:45, 29 October 2013 (UTC)Reply

Is it necessary to hit Wikimedia DC websites so frequently? Please slow your script down. Thanks, Legoktm (talk) 03:24, 15 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Hi Legoktm! The script isn't running very often, only four times an hour. However, it has to make multiple requests, in first place, because there is a chain of redirects until the final homepage is reached (in your case, http://www.wikimediadc.orghttps://www.wikimediadc.orghttps://wikimediadc.orghttps://wikimediadc.org/wiki/Home); and, in second place, because it checks wikimediadc.org and www.wikimediadc.org with both HTTP and HTTPS, and this multiplies by four the requests of the chain of redirects. I can remove www.wikimediadc.org and keep wikimediadc.org, which will prevent more than half of the requests. Do you think that will suffice?
Best regards! --abián 10:41, 15 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
Yep, that would be great. I should clarify that these requests are pretty cheap, I was just slightly irritated at the time since I was trying to track down what actually was overloading our server and this was continually popping up in the access log. Legoktm (talk) 02:35, 16 August 2017 (UTC)Reply
Great, Legoktm, done.
And no problem! The tool should help the owners of the websites, not disturb their work, so thanks for your feedback.
Best. --abián 12:09, 16 August 2017 (UTC)Reply

Bot inactivity notice[edit]

Hello Abián,

The Meta-Wiki community has approved a new bot inactivity policy which states that bots that are inactive for a continued period of 14 months should be subject to review.

In accordance with the bot inactivity policy, if you wish to retain the bot flag for the named account, please answer to this message no later than 6 April 2019 on Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat. After that date if the bureaucrats have not received any reply, the bot flag for the named account will be removed.

To reflag a bot, please create a new request at Meta:Requests for bot status.

Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:33, 30 March 2019 (UTC)Reply

Global bot flag[edit]

Apologies for the crosspost, but leaving this message here as required per policy.

Hi, I noticed that your bot Invadibot is considered inactive under the global bot status criteria, since it has not edited during the last year - except for eswiki, which is not a global bot wiki. Do you still need the flag? --Rschen7754 07:02, 21 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Inactive bot[edit]

Hello. As per policy, bots which are inactive for a period of 14 months shall have their flag removed. Please reply here if you wish to keep the bot flag. --Minorax«¦talk¦» 08:14, 9 January 2022 (UTC)Reply
