Bot on Assamese Wikipedia[edit]

Hello, the bot you are running on Assamese wikipedia correct the unicode errors is not work properly. It is replacing ৰ instead of র (র → ৰ) is fine, but it should not replace ৎ in place of ্ ( ্ → ৎ). --Simbu123 (talk) 19:02, 6 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

Synchbot request[edit]

Hello Hazard-SJ. Your request for user pages on every wiki has been fulfilled (see the archived request & bot log). —Pathoschild 16:51, 08 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you very much, Pathoschild.  Hazard-SJ  ±  23:44, 9 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

Babel thing[edit]

One of the users seems to like the old one: see here πr2 (tc) 22:54, 16 April 2012 (UTC)Reply

Thanks for the notification. It seems there was a duplication, to make it worse. I'll remove the template and leave the user a message.  Hazard-SJ  ±  23:12, 16 April 2012 (UTC)Reply


Hi. I've left a message for you here. Thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 02:11, 8 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

Hi. The test looks sound; no more translating needed. My only worry is that there will be so many bad links (I guess 15,000), seeing them will break the User's back! There's only a handful of us on Wiki-cy, and automating the process is not possible. How about doing a batch of 2k to start off with? Or is there another answer? Many thanks, Llywelyn2000 (talk) 03:21, 9 May 2012 (UTC)Reply
Can you include a category please: [[Categori:Tudalen gyda dolen wallus]]. Thanks. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 03:52, 9 May 2012 (UTC)Reply
Whaw! Everything worked fine. You did a great job; many thanks, or in Welsh: Diolch yn fawr! Llywelyn2000 (talk) 20:56, 10 May 2012 (UTC)Reply
We're slowly working through our bad links, but it's very, very slow - considering we have so many! To half this time, could you generate the next page with a Template next to the bad link? This way, we wouldn't have to open the Talk page, and would half the time spent. The new Template could say "Dolen Wallus" (Bad Link). Diolch. Llywelyn2000 (talk) 05:49, 17 May 2012 (UTC)Reply

Bot-owner needed[edit]

Hi there, I'm Sannita from it.wp and I'm writing you on behalf of the WikiAfrica team.

We are currently in possession of the updated datas about the administrative divisions of Botswana (up to villages) and we'd like to upload them on mg.wp too. Many data are about divisions or villages that have no article on this version, so what we need is a bot owner that can help us in programming a script and create these articles, if needed.

We already uploaded these data on Italian, Swedish, and Dutch Wikipedia, but now we'd like to focus on languages mainly spoken in Africa, like Afrikaans, Swahili, Malagasy, Tsonga, or something like that. Russavia told me that you're looking for some work, and I'd be delighted to work with you. :)

If you are interested or you need any clarification, please feel free to contact me on my Italian talk page or on Meta. Thanks. --Sannita - not just another sysop 19 Novambra 2012 à 17:17 (UTC)

Sorry for the delayed response. To get the basics first, is this a one-run task for a bot to do on multiple wikis? If so, permission would be needed from each of the wikis before doing so, as the global bot policy doesn't allow this. It would probably be better to do them manually (maybe with a checklist to keep track?). Secondly considering there is no problem with the first issue, I'd need a better idea of the task.  Hazard-SJ  ✈  03:00, 23 November 2012 (UTC)Reply

Global rollback[edit]

Promoted, see for the reasoning here. I really hope that you'll be more active from now on though. Trijnsteltalk 17:54, 9 December 2012 (UTC)Reply

Sandbox on Dutch Wikipedia[edit]


Your bot is creating an error on the dutch Sandbox. Please fix it before you clean it up again.

Thanks. --RenéV (talk) 09:35, 2 February 2014 (UTC)Reply

Can you please keep your bot away from nl:Wikipedia:Zandbak until it is fixed? Thanks. --RenéV (talk) 14:34, 2 February 2014 (UTC)Reply
Your bot is blocked until the problem is solved. --RenéV (talk) 17:11, 2 February 2014 (UTC)Reply
Just noting here for others who might be wondering, this had been fixed for some time now.  Hazard SJ  02:48, 18 February 2014 (UTC)Reply

Hazard-bot's crontab[edit]

I modified Hazard-bot's crontab on Tools because of this. I:

  1. disabled github-updater completely,
  2. added -quiet as an option to all jsub calls, and
  3. disabled c-login and c-db-brokenredirects because they would try to submit cd as a job (which never succeeds).

Currently, mail from Tools to Yahoo! is apparently blocked. I removed all "Your job has been submitted" and "/data/project/hazard-bot/cd: No such file or directory" messages generated by your crontab from the queue, but only those. However, due to the block, if your tools were to send you mails they would likely not reach you at the moment. If you have any questions, please let me know. --Tim Landscheidt (talk) 12:43, 22 May 2014 (UTC)Reply

RfC: Inactive Global bot accounts[edit]

Hi Hazard-SJ, About 1.5 year ago you were active in RfC related to Global bots accounts after interwiki functionality was going to be done through Wikidata. Thus I decided you may be interested on commenting on a new RfC with suggestion to revoke global bot flags from inactive Global interwiki bots. Cheers, --Xelgen (talk) 17:38, 13 October 2014 (UTC)Reply

Updated scripts[edit]

Hi Hazard-SJ. I edited your global.js to update you to the latest version of force ltr, which is compatible with the latest MediaWiki changes and resides on the Wikimedia Tool Labs for easier updates. Let me know if anything breaks. :) —Pathoschild 03:56, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

Global user page migration[edit]

Hello Hazard-SJ. I deleted your local user/CSS/JS pages on all wikis last month as you requested via Synchbot, and your global user page is now active. You can see the deletion log on your archive page. :) —Pathoschild 13:36, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Thank you!  Hazard SJ  04:12, 10 July 2015 (UTC)Reply

Deleting pages on Serbian Wiktionary[edit]

Hello, I am deleting a large number of pages which user Asinis632 has created on Serbian Wiktionary in the past, according to a partial discussion here and (longer) conversation on the Discord server of Serbian Wikipedia community about "contributions" made by mentioned user. He made catastrophic contributions (en masse), which are not for the project at all. He also did not stop, still after several warnings from me and other colleagues.

But, yesterday when he joined the server, we were finally able to explain to him why and what we were doing. He agreed that we should start from the beginning, and that this time Serbian Wiktionary should be exactly what it is intended for, not a collection of machine-translated pages and pages that are not for any Wikimedia project. So there is no reason to worry. @Acamicamacaraca and FriedrickMILBarbarossa: can confirm all this.

Sorry for bad English, when I got the message from you I went to bed because I'm tired, but I wanted to answer you on question, in order to avoid misunderstandings. Best regards, Zoranzoki21 (talk) 00:29, 5 August 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Zoranzoki21: Thanks for confirming, I just wanted to be sure that it was intentional. 26,000+ deletions within a single day, by a single admin, on a single wiki, isn't something that I come across frequently, so again, I hope you understand my curiosity.  Hazard SJ  01:01, 5 August 2020 (UTC)Reply
Everything is okay, I understand your reason for concern. Zoranzoki21 (talk) 18:39, 5 August 2020 (UTC)Reply

Indeed, we did discuss the matter in hand. --Novak Watchmen (talk) 03:45, 5 August 2020 (UTC)Reply
