Bot is down[edit]

COIBot appears to be down - last edit was 7 hours ago, claims to have saved xwiki reports but no edits were made --DannyS712 (talk) 19:05, 22 June 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: that’s the second time. I’ll check in a bit. —Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:44, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
COIBot seems to be running, responding and logs are recent, though queues are zero. I am not seeing reports written, so wonder whether it is logged out. I am trying to remember how to check. I can just restart everything if you think that would help.  — billinghurst sDrewth 04:14, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712 and Billinghurst: I have just logged the bot back in. That is a strange thing, I did the same yesterday. There is NO reason for the bot to log out, except if one logs in on another machine (which makes my version of PerlWikipedia apparently loose the cookie on the machine). I'll need to check. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 04:56, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
@Beetstra it happened again - bot responds on irc, but last edit onwiki was 02:46, 26 June (its now 04:56, 27 June) DannyS712 (talk) 04:55, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: and logged in again. Strange, this does normally not happen. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 06:33, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
@Beetstra is there a better way to be letting you know / rebooting it? Since the bot is still active on irc, maybe add a command (probably limiting access to a few users to be on the safe side) to tell it to try and log in again? DannyS712 (talk) 06:37, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
It is a console command, so not really. Just ping me on-wiki. Note, before this issue I did not log in for something like 6 months, and XLinkBot has no issue whatsoever over a longer time. Curious. —Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 07:17, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
(ec) Beyond guessing that it is not reporting, I am able to know that it is logged out. I can reboot it, though never certain what we may lose, so hesitate on that regard. As I see it, if it is still analysing, and not able to write a report, then it is less of a concern. We never catch all the rubbish, and the worse rubbishers will be back.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:18, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
Dirk, how do you push the login only process? I have never worked that bit out.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:19, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
@SDrewth: running with the password, which is <redacted> :-). Rebooting does not help if COIBot’s login cookies got eaten. —Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 07:43, 27 June 2020 (UTC)
Appears to be down again, bot responds on irc but no edits on-wiki for a while --DannyS712 (talk) 22:23, 9 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: It appears we had a major logout-event, I got logged out last night as well. I have refreshed the login. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 06:46, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, everyone's sessions were invalidated. Thanks DannyS712 (talk) 07:27, 10 July 2020 (UTC)
Bot hasn't edited in 40 minutes, despite multiple xwiki reports being queued via irc DannyS712 (talk) 04:35, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
Bot is logged in.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:07, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
Think the bot was logged out again - no edits for over an hour, said it generated a report via IRC (checked that it wasn't the title blacklist this time) --DannyS712 (talk) 05:31, 26 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: It was, logged back in. (in which channel are you lurking?). --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 06:18, 26 July 2020 (UTC)

Issue with linksummary template[edit]

Hi. At User:COIBot/XWiki/ there seems to be a problem with {{LinkSummary|*}}. Just wanted to let you know if you have some time to look into it. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 03:51, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: I’ll have a look, there are some things like that. —Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 05:29, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Edit conflicts[edit]

COIBot should avoid them, rather than overwriting - latest one occurred at Special:Diff/20258233. Thanks, --DannyS712 (talk) 05:21, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: I agree, but this is extremely rare I think. I will see if I can do a check as last thing before it saves. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 05:47, 8 July 2020 (UTC)
Happened again - Special:Diff/20316862 DannyS712 (talk) 08:33, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Report wont generate[edit]

report xwiki on irc repeatedly results in the bot saying that it saved a report, but no report was actually saved (wanted to see if there were any uses other than w:User:Fu*k looks before blacklisting). Any ideas? --DannyS712 (talk) 16:07, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

@DannyS712: Probably caused by .*fuck.* being in the title blacklist?, but it's <newaccountonly>. Given that the Special:Log/titleblacklist is disabled for Wikimedia wikis I can't fully confirm. Special:Log/spamblacklist/COIBot & AbuseFilter seems not the cause either. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:18, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
Its probably because .*\bfuck.* is only the local title blacklist (went to create the page in case the bot could edit but not create, and saw the warning). Added to the local title whitelist at MediaWiki:Titlewhitelist and the warning went away. --DannyS712 (talk) 16:27, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712 and MarcoAurelio: I don't see any reason in the log of COIBot either. It now suddenly created ... --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 16:34, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
I added it to the whitelist, so now it could go through :) DannyS712 (talk) 16:34, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
@DannyS712: but there are no hits in the title blacklist log of COIBot? --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 16:36, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
Apparently the title blacklist log is disabled on wikimedia wikis (per @MarcoAurelio above) DannyS712 (talk) 16:36, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
See task T68450 and task T155967. Enabling the TBL would, in some cases, potentially infringe upon Wikimedia's Privacy Policy. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:40, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Bot thinks its June[edit]

At least in #wikimedia-external-links, where its alerts about edits from a month ago --DannyS712 (talk) 15:10, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Backlog? Strange. —Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 16:58, 27 July 2020 (UTC)
