IRC cloak request confirmation[edit]

My username on meta and de: is "Hoch auf einem Baum", my master IRC nickname is HochaufeinemBaum, and I would like the cloak wikipedia/HaeB. regards, Hoch auf einem Baum 05:03, 16 December 2006 (UTC)


Hi Haeb, I did the categorization as part of general maintenance related tasks along with several hundred other pages(approx. 500), I found all the pages listed under Uncategorized pages needing categorization. Global message delivery's main pages, had been categorized as "Global Maintenance" by user:Pathoschild much earlier, I just used his categorization for the rest of the pages under it, its wasn't my decision to categorize it under that. If there are any issues please feel free to revert my edit, I will remove that categorization from those pages for now. Sorry for any inconvenience, Regards. Theo10011 17:25, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

May 16 Signpost global delivery[edit]

Hi. I imagine you're already aware, but just in case... this delivery had spaces before some of the bullets, causing funky rendering when the message delivered (for example). --MZMcBride 14:50, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I noticed :(
I wrote up an excuse explanation for what happened here.

August 30 Signpost global delivery[edit]

Hi. I imagine you're already aware, but just in case...

I don't think the bot has been programmed to do the global delivery yet. Or something. --MZMcBride 04:34, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Global message delivery answers[edit]

Hi. I looked into your Global message delivery troubles.

Regarding this edit, the bot checks the last editor to both the /Spam and /Status subpages against the /Access list before running. It does so to ensure that no nefarious user has vandalized the /Spam page between the message being loaded and the bot being started. In this case, I believe due to replag, the bot thought that the most recent editor was The ed17 (due to this edit by him). The ed17 is not on the bot's access list currently (he should probably be added!).

Regarding the bot not starting after you commanded it to most recently, it was due to this error in your message.

In short, there's nothing really wrong with the bot, just its operators. :-) --MZMcBride (talk) 01:56, 6 September 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for sorting this out! I believe "your" is used in the second person plural, but note that I wasn't involved with posting the stalled Signpost message originally - I just thought it would be nice to help getting it out before I was going to overwrite it with out the subsequent message.
"this error" - thanks a lot for the explanation! Are there any other aspects in which the bot's parsing of this tag differs from MediaWiki's? Would it be an idea to handle this kind of error like others, with the bost posting a note to the Status page instead of aborting silently?
Again, thanks a lot for your help, and your work on the bot is much appreciated, as always.

Sorry, I meant "your" in the sense that you were the one who reported the issues to me.
The </source> tag being on its own line isn't really a parsing issue, per se. The bot looks at the /Spam page and it relies on certain strings of text being present (such as "SUBJECT", etc.) and being in a particular format. When that text isn't present or it's in an unexpected format, the bot goes ape-shit. I guess catching this a bit more gracefully would be nice. It'd be nicer if people just didn't screw up the format, though. ;-) --MZMcBride (talk) 17:28, 10 September 2012 (UTC)

Help test better mass message delivery[edit]

Hi. You're being contacted as you've previously used global message delivery (or its English Wikipedia counterpart). It doesn't feel so great to be spammed, does it? ;-)

For the past few months, Legoktm has built a replacement to the current message delivery system called MassMessage. MassMessage uses a proper user interface form (no more editing a /Spam subpage), works faster (it can complete a large delivery in minutes), and no longer requires being on an access list (any local administrator can use it). In addition, many tiny annoyances with the old system have been addressed. It's a real improvement! :-)

You can test out MassMessage here: testwiki:Special:MassMessage. The biggest difference you'll likely notice is that any input list must use a new {{#target:}} parser function. For example, {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales}} or {{#target:User talk:Jimbo Wales|}}. For detailed instructions, check out mw:Help:Extension:MassMessage.

If you find any bugs, have suggestions for additional features, or have any other feedback, drop a note at m:Talk:MassMessage. Thanks for spamming! --MZMcBride (talk) 05:24, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

Beginning of MassMessage, end of EdwardsBot[edit]

Hi. You're being contacted as you're listed as an EdwardsBot user.

MassMessage has been deployed to all Wikimedia wikis. For help using the new tool, please check out its help page or drop a note on Meta-Wiki.

With over 400,000 edits to Wikimedia wikis, EdwardsBot has served us well; however EdwardsBot will no longer perform local or global message delivery after December 31, 2013.

A huge thanks to Legoktm, Reedy, Aaron Schulz and everyone else who helped to get MassMessage deployed. --MZMcBride (talk) 02:36, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
