Encoding issues[edit]

Hello & hope that you're okay. I think the bot has some encoding issues at User:COIBot/Local/ I'm afraid I cannot be more specific :-( Regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:07, 16 July 2018 (UTC)

Yep, also see two threads up. I'll have another look at this, but debugging this on a terminal is near impossible. XLinkBot has the same problem, and I hope that my db does not have the same problem too... --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 16:35, 16 July 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. Maybe some InnoDB or encoding? On our tools we did to fix some encoding issues. Maybe that helps? Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:51, 17 July 2018 (UTC)

webdetail link issues[edit]

I just clicked on the webdetail link for a link report, and it looks like that domain is being used by spammers. Link in the report is this. Something's not right - would you mind double-checking? Thanks! Ravensfire (talk) 02:38, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

@Ravensfire: I replaced it with the template from en.wikipedia, but notice now that reverseinternet also does not work anymore (but that is just a 404). We'll have to find some other places to get information on adsenses, webbugs and similar (@MER-C:. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 03:26, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank ya, sir! Ravensfire (talk) 03:29, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
Found three sites, though only one overtly shows it as part of a url post

COIBot: revertlist command jiggered[edit]

Hi. When trying "revertlist" the bot does not respond to start that it has been added to the list. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:46, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: Did you try to 'restart commander'? --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 12:58, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

I hadn't, though no change when doing so.

<sDrewth> restart commander
<COIBot> Attempting to restart Commander.
<COIBot> Commander seems to have died - attempted to start one - see 'show processes'.
<sDrewth> revertlist
<sDrewth> revertlist
<sDrewth> show processes
<COIBot> Running processes: .
<sDrewth> revertlist

Stupid iadmin stuff .. can you try again (and then also restart the linksaver). It should be back up now. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 14:04, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

The Community Wishlist Survey[edit]


You get this message because you’ve previously participated in the Community Wishlist Survey. I just wanted to let you know that this year’s survey is now open for proposals. You can suggest technical changes until 11 November: Community Wishlist Survey 2019.

You can vote from November 16 to November 30. To keep the number of messages at a reasonable level, I won’t send out a separate reminder to you about that. /Johan (WMF) 11:24, 30 October 2018 (UTC)


Are you available to provide admin help for me? I am new to this project, and in need, if you can. Thanks.John Cline (talk) 06:00, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

@John Cline: My admin work here is almost exclusively with the spam-blacklist. Other tasks I can see, but I am not proficient (or necessarily competent) there on this project. --Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 13:54, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for that reply. I should have followed-up on my request by telling you that my situation had been resolved, which it has. Nevertheless, I do appreciate your reply. Best regards--John Cline (talk) 14:02, 1 November 2018 (UTC)
