COIBot lost connection with meta[edit]

Same old.  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:59, 20 October 2014 (UTC)

Friggin losing it's login all the time. It should be logged-in for a month, but sometimes it .. decides to lose it. XLinkBot has the same issue. I'll monitor, regularly .. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 07:17, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Argh, logged it in this morning, again dead .. :-( I'll look again tomorrow morning. Frustrating. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 12:30, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
You'll never guess. hmmm or maybe you'll never guess errr … guess what?!?  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:15, 2 November 2014 (UTC)
Well it is back by intervention, or time passing. However we now have XLinkBot complaining ... XLinkBot> I've become logged-out on Wikipedia, reverting disabled ... and I don't know if there is a means to kick it. If there is, I didn't find it.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:59, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
COIBot seems finally stable for more than 24 hours .. I logged XLinkBot back in just now.
I start to think that there is something wrong on Labs - why do the bots get logged out so much. Coibot is the worst, but XLinkBot is also regularly gone (XLinkBot runs since March 18 now .. the bot itself is darn stable - that is another issue with COIBot, restarting regularly). I really need some time (which I do not have) to monitor the bots. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:18, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
I am wondering whether @MPelletier (WMF): can offer a suggestion.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:19, 5 November 2014 (UTC)

Reset a count?[edit]

top 10 links shows me with 5k+ links, however, it would seem that it was a spam addition to a template (not showing up anywhere as a link). I have waited a couple of days to see if the link count will self-clear, however, nada. Is there a means to have the link reset/recalculate/ I am definitely not going to 'clear' or 'do not count' the beast. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:25, 7 December 2014 (UTC)

Hmm .. no, probably not through IRC. I will see if I can manually wipe it in the files. Will however pop up again when s.o. adds it again - a counted domain which surpasses a certain threshold (see settings) results in LiWa3 saving the link to a datafile. The command 'top # links' reads the datafile, sorts it and spews out the top # (while wiping duplicates, keeping only the highest count at the time of the 'top' command in a backup). I will consider a 'reset top <domain>' command or similar. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 18:04, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
I think it is completely gone .. if files don't magically reappear as they sometimes have a tendency to do on tools (which I think is the reason for the strange logouts of the bots). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 18:10, 7 December 2014 (UTC)
To note that I cannot get the top links to operate at all in irc. Also to note that we are down to LiWa3_3 only in channels. The others have disappeared and I cannot get them to reappear via command to COIBot.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:50, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Issue at amWP[edit]

Per the conversation at w:am:User talk:Codex Sinaiticus this matter has now been resolved through a reversal.  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:24, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Hmm .. thanks. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:22, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

COIBot poke page[edit]

Hi. It seems that User:COIBot/Poke is not working. The links reported over there ain't processed and we get no reports. Best regards. -- M\A 12:39, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Bot was logged out - I logged it back in (I hope we do not get again thát cycle .. where it logs out all the time). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:29, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

COIBot not logging edits[edit]

FYI. COIBot is in IRC and reporting that it is undertaking reports, however, nothing is being written to meta. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:11, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

And again, presumably related to the migration on labs. Present and talking in IRC, nothing writing to meta. 12:57, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

No, this was the end of the month - bot gets automatically logged out after 1 month. I logged it back in. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 10:28, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
